Recently a number of interviews have appeared in the papers of the state to the effect that drainage has not affected rainfall in Iowa, and their evident purpose is to excuse and encourage the continuance of the policy of indiscriminate drainage which has been practiced in our state. Our legislators and the people of the state should understand that this argument is wholly beside the question involved, and that its only effect can be to becloud the issue and lead our attention away from the real questions which should receive our consideration.
