empties into the Missouri river. For a con
siderable distance the water from the upper
part of the district cuts ' Its own way
towards the river, making excavation by
the contractor unnecessary. As there was
no excavation work, consequently there
were no leeves thrown up at the sldeof the
ditch, and when the river backed up the
adjoining land was flooded.
Th supervisor wer not certain as to
their rlghta-in th matter. They wanted to
learn before taking any action whether
they had the right to order the construc
tion of protecting levees now that the drain
age contract waa completed, so they referred
It to W.' H. Klllpack, special attorney, for
th drainage board.
