passing on ditch claims
Joint Board of uperiiors Put in Dtj at
GENERALLY FOLLOW APPRAISERS' REPORT
Some Who Fall to File Claims In
Time Come In and Ask Da manes,
bat the Claims Are
The Board of Supervisors of Pottawat
tamie and Harrison counties were In Joint
session all day Wednesday, considering the
report of the special appraisement com
mittee, appointed to a.ssesa the damages
rustained by the property through which
the Joint drainage ditch pAJses. The Joint
board very generally followed the recom
mendations of the committee, changing
them only In a few Instances.
The rule was adopted at the outset to ap
prove no claims for damages where the
property waa not touched by the ditches,
and allow damai only for such claims
where property was actually taken for
A number of lielated claimants came be
fore the board to secure an allowance of
damages who had neglected to file their
claims within the statutory limit through
carelessness and neglect. In some Instances
the claimants admitted that they had ample
notice to file their claims, but had failed to
do so through carelessness. The board was
of the opinion that the belated claimants
had slept on their rights, and no action was
taken by the Joint board for their relief.
It is possible that some tangle will yet
arise out of these cases, as It Is shown In
several Instances that considerable valuable
property will have to be appropriated for
which no compulsory damuges have been
, Claims Allowed.
After allowing the following list of claims
the Joint board adjourned until 9:ivt Thurs

OYSTER BAT. I I., Aug. t Attorney
General Moody, who came here yesterday
to visit President Roosevelt, left today for
Washington to give personal attention to
the Investigations of the Agricultural de

he president a variety of other topics. The
ecllnatlon of W. W. Cotton to accept the
ppolntment of United States district Judge
or the district or Oregon was taken up,
but no agreement was reached as to a
further appointment. Judge Cotton did not
qualify after his appointment, simply Indl

his private business arrangements he found
himself unable to accept the tender of the

Idcred In a general discussion of the laws
bearing on prosecutions In United Statee
courts the necessity for amendments to the
criminal laws of the United States. They
agreed, he said, that congress ought to
make certain amendments to existing stat
utes, as the law under which the courts are
now operating rendered It often difficult to
reach a man who might be guilty of wrong
doing. As an Illustration of this, Mr,
Moody said It waa far more difficult to take
man from one United States court's Juris
diction Into another United States court's
urlsdlctlon than It Is for the state of Maioe
to get a criminal It wants from the state
Among the matters which the president

NOT UNANIMOUS OVER DITCHES
Some Insist the Slpnghs Are
VERMILLION, S. D Aug. t. (Special.)
Membera of the county boards of Yankton
and Clay counties put In -a atrenuoua day
yesterday hearing arguments for and
against the construction of drainage ditches
on the Missouri bottom to arry off surplus
water that may come from overflow or
heavy rains. Many farmers-from both aides
of the county line were present, and the
majority registered a kick against the pro
posed ditches as outlined by tho petitions
signed by F. H. hlttaker and others
Some ot these against the proposition were
of the opinion that the cost of construction
would greatly exceed the benefits to be de
rived, while others thou ' the plan not
feasible for the reason t.iat the ditches
could not be built so as to drain the bot
tom properly. Some even went so far as
to say that they did not want their land
drained at all aa the sloughs when full of
water were a great benefit to them In dry
years. One ianxion county iarmer cuumeo.
that in 1S94 when most farmers were hard
hit on account of lack of moisture he raised
fifty bushels of corn per acre and seventeen
bushels of wheat, simply because tho cere
als took moisture from the sloughs. The
commissioners accepted the petitions and
ordered a permanent survey made of the
routes of the proposed ditches. Surveyor
Vinton of Union county will do the work.

MAIN SANITARY SEWER BADLY CLOGGED

The main sanitary sewer to the river Is

President Adklns of the city council, along
with the city engineer, found by Investiga
tion that garbage had been dumped Into
the manholes. When nn excavation was
made, tin cans, refuse of all kinds, and
even pony beer-kegs ware found In tho I
sewer. More than likely quite n section
of the sewer will have to be dug up and
the sewer cleaned before the big pipe will
be of any service. . In the meantime, those
living or having business places on Railroad
avenue are protesting emphatically.
"You may say as coming from me," said
Councilman Adklns, "that In the future
any hauler of gartmge found dumping re
fuse Into a sewer will be arrested, and If
guilty will be heavily fined. If the present
ordinance Is not strong enough an amend
ment can be made. This practice of haulers
of garbage using the city sewers for a
dumping place must be stopped."

AT IT FOR THIRD QFIcENTURY
Colonel Welch Completes Thlrty
Seeond Year aa Maker and
Dlapenaer of Weather.
Weather Forecaster W eicn late Tuesday
evening rapped off hUt thirty-second Joar
as the chief custudlan of the breexes and
hllxzards, the hot winds and the sand
storms, at all times and on all occasions
keeping In close touch with the almanac
and the goose bones. .
Colonel Welch has dispensed weather,
good and bad. In many places, but Just
how many the genial barometer Wednes
day refused to tell, because he was too
busy fllrtirlng up Tuesday's rain to look up
the matter, and, besides, there are things
he said which should be forgotten. ' When
Colonel Welch came to Nebraska, In 1$S7
or thereabouts, people In the western part
of the state knew not what rain was like,
except as they heard of It In Missouri from
some ot the Immigrants, but today he
points with pride to the fact that Sheridan
county last year had as much rain as
Dodge and more, and that people have
been drowned In the open prairie. This
splendid condition of affairs Colonel Welch
modestly admits Is due to his Impartial
manner of handling the rain and letting
It fall on the Just and the unjust alike.
Easter hats and straw hats, It makes no
difference to him.
Colonel Welch sent his thirty-second year
out with nice little imitation of a rain
storm, Just to see If hit hand was still In,
allowing 15 inches to fall In Omaha, with
from one-half to three-fourths of an Inch
over most of the state, while for a mo
ment he Jumped into Iowa and gave to
the Des Moines man 120 Inches to scatter
over that state. In Bome portions of which
two Inches fell. In fact, Colonel Welch
said a right smart lot of ruin fell.
Colonel Welch Is a man who Is always
ready to answer a civil question.
"You have been In this business so long,
how do yiu like weather?" waa asked
"Oh, fine; Just the finest kind eh er
what did you say?"
"Make it a pony."
PROTEST AGAINST FLUSHING
City Engineer Deelarra Thla Mode of
Cleaning: Streets Dnmagrea
City Engineer Roscwater'a protest against
the constant sprinkling of asphalt streets
Is as follows:

of the council to the damaging results
which follow tho sprinkling of our asphalt

which have cost us over J2.0o0.uo0. So large
an Investment ought Certainly to warrant
the city authorities in getting the best pos

are simply one rorm ot artinclai sand

not much over 10 pel cent Is asphalt, has the

therefore urge upon you such sction ns

The city engineer opposes street flushing
only because It is more expensive than
other forms of cleaning, costing In Omaha
from $30 to $35 a mile. It Is against the
continual sprinkling that he Is urging an
immediate change, however.

CATTLEMAN'S J)AY IS PASSING
Kehraska Rangers, Sna Alliance Man,
Will Soon Re Thing of Past,
Reennse of Uncle Sam.
E. E. Ixwe. a cattleman of Alliance, wag
In Omaha Tuesday nfternon on business
and Inciderttnlly remarked that the days of
the cattle men In Nebraska were about
over as the government was certainly 1n
earnest In making the cattlemen take dowa
their fences ' which enclose goverrlment
'Cattlemen have fenced over a million
acres of government lanns, sain Mr.
Ixiwe, "but the land Is not fit for anything
but grazing. We can't lease the land from
the government and the only excuse there
Is for tearing down the fences la to allow
the settlers to come In and go to farming.
There Is not one ranchman in a hundred
but who will help a settler who comes there
to live. What I mean by that Is a bona
fide settler. There are lots of men who
come In there pretending to be settlera but
who merely want to compel the cattlemen
to give them money to gel out. Theae kind
of people of rouree get hard sledding, but
the bona fide settler will have no trouble.
Now If the government persists In making
ua take down the fences, and of course
It will, then the size of the herds will ba
reduced to at least one half. This because
you see the cattlemen all have wind mills
and by them water their own stock. The
fences protect tho water. By having tha
fences a cattleman can round up his cattle
within a couple of days, while without the
fences It will take him a couple of weeks.
Of course I know the fences have to come,
they are coming down now, but I think
something should be sakl favorable to tha
