ovonlng In tho B. of L. building, the
dralnago pioposltion, upon which
farmers residing west of tho
city aro working, was dis
cussed by government engi
neers Jossup and Millor. Mr. Jessup
has been in tho Ilcrshey section for
several weeks making examinations
of tho underllow, securing data and
getting matters in shape for tho organ

Is desired by a majorty of tho farmers,
or rather a majorty of tho acreago In
tho proposed district.
Mr. Miller spoko of dralnago in tho
Irrigated sectlonO of Colorado, and
gavo Instances where irrigated land
which had become water-soaked, non
productvo and practically valueless
through seepage, had been re-claimed
through dralnago. Whllo conditions
wero somewhat different in differ
ent sections of tho country, ho
was confident that dranago of tho
valley west of town would provo a
good investment for tho land owners.
Mr. Jesup spoko of tho conditions
as ho found them; that thoro was
no question in his mind but that
dralnago would mako wondorfully
productivo thousands of acres of val
ley land that Is now In salt grass
but little revenue.
Tho district which it is proposed to
form would comprise the territory be
tween tho rvors front tho O'Fallon
bluff to tho points east of this city.
Within this boundary there aro 41,
000 acres of laud, and of these 41,000
acres about 30,000 acres would bo bon
ofited by a dralnago system. Tho ap-

tho seopago problem. In closing ho
asked tho support of tho Chamber of

In silo-while this amount is greatly
oxcoeded for somo farmers silo all
that they raise, tho average prlco paid
would $5.C2V! cents per ton, and If
our arithmetic is right tho company
will pay out ?2,1 29,041.87 to tho farm
ers of tho valley this season for beets.
Komo incomo now, isn't it, and it puts
tho farmers in tho producers' class
with a big C. On tho basis that thoro
wero 31.000 acres of boots raised in
the valley this year which Is pretty
closo to tho amount tho avorago
yield would bo 12.21 tons per aero,
which at $5.02 per ton means a
gross Incomo of $G8.G8 per aero, ap
proximately tho samo as Tecolved by
tho growers a year ago. Wo imagine
it is safo to say that tho Scottsbluff
Sugar company will easily distribute
$3,000,000 in tho valley this year when
tho cost of repairs, maintaining and
operating tho factory, etc, Is taken
