The following letter was received
from ono of our Subscribers regard
ing tho drainage proposition west of
town. Wo print it as a contribution
to tho dralnago question now so prom
inently before us.
TO THE TRIBUNE:
I want to tell tho public through
Tho Trlbuno that I am against drain
ing this good litlo valloy that wo have
boon fortunato enough to find und lo
cato in to make our homo. I am a
resident horo and feel perfectly sat
isfied with my investment and tho land
that I own and I know that this land
does not need any drainage. I have
noticed since I mpved to this County
that land farmed by tho owner has
always raised crops except when they
have been destroyed by pests. Other
land has n reputation for not growing
crops but lot mo say right hero that
it is not tho lands fault but tho fault
of tho man who planted tho crop. Ho
did not plow and cultlvato tho ground
and tako caro of tho growing crop ahd
so lost out. Then ho blamed tho soli.
Tills was said of ono of tho farms I ow,!
and Hvo on and if you think I am too
windy, just ask mo what I will take
for It nnd you will soon learn that I
think it is somo good.
Ono of tho biggest drawbacks wo
have in this country is that somo of
tho farmers want to farm too "big"
and tho work is only- half done. So
tho expenses aro more than what ho
saves. Right hero wo como to wnat
will happen if this drainago goes thru;
wo will havo moro expense. Wo have
all tho taxes wo can pay right now.
Stop and think, if this drainngo goes
through, what your proceeds will bo
when you como to pay off that mort
gage on your farm If there is ono, or
to mako your homo moro comfortable
for you in your old ago or to improvo
tho country whore you Hvo. If you
aro rich enough to- buy somo of these
bonds and lot' tho other follow work
nnd dig all his lifo to pay you, I don't
blamo you for wanting dralnago be
causo you will bo suro to drain tho
other fellow's pocket dry. Then you
will bo benefitted with what tho home
people don't want, especially tho land
ownofs that Hvo on thoir farms.
ft you examine tho district to bo
drained you will see that tho bIggQ9t
acrcago Is owned by non-residents.
They want "to soli their land and aro
trying to boom this country and so got
high price. If these non-resident
owners fail In this they will have a
sugar factory In Hcrshoy, controlling
mo nnd you and tho bonds will bo
taken caro of without doubt.
Wo havo no swamps hero and what
land is not fit to farm now will nover
bo after tho dralnago and maybe it
will bo a wholo lot poorer as now it
will grow hay and' pasturo without
irrigation. And hero Is anothor thing
to think about If dralnago is to bo
successful wo will havo to uso moro
water to irrlgato with and that will
attach another expense. Wo havo to
bo very neighborly right now to mako
tho water do us all. Boforo tho bomls
woro paid It was ono dollar and now
It is three dollars sinco tho bonds nro
paid and it will bo tho samo way with
tho drainage. It will havo to bo kopt
ip and wo hnvo no guaranteo how
good it will bo.
I am in thts Dralnago District Num
ber Ono with part of my land. Somo
of my neighbors aro out bocauso thoy
woro not in favor of It District Num
Ono was formod from enough acreago
of Uiobo who woro in favor and thoy
say thoy will suro got tho neighbors
In District Numbor Two and so on till
thoy get tho wholo valloy. I do not
think that is right.
So my farmor frionds and North
Platto and Horehoy business men
stop and think what wo nro gottlng
ourselves into, boforo it is too lato.
Lcavo good enough alono and you will
soo in flvo years from now wo will bo
bettor fixed financially, havo bettor
roads and bettor Improved farms than
if wo had dralnago and North Platto
and Horshoy will havo moro money at
homo from tho community. .
Tills is my honest bolioving and fool
ing toward you all.
