OF INTEREST TO IMPERIAL Strong Plea lor a Clean Town by Rev. D. M. Gandier Dear Mr. Editor: It Is frequently said that prohibition tends to produce ••blind-pigs." whereas •high license prevents their existence. The argument Is that when a man pays a heavy license tax he will see that no one else Infringes upon his rights with out a license, whereas under prohibition the temptation to sell without a licence Is great and no one has any financial Interest In preventing "blind-pigs" from running. This theory has commended Mself to many good temperance people. But it has one radical weakness, and that Is that the facts are against It. Ex perience has shown conclusively that high license does not keep ••blind-pigs'' out, but on the contrary, seems to nourish them. The reasons for this are. many, Three may be mentioned. First, by licensing the traffic govern ment recognizes its right to exist. At the same time the right to sell Is de nied to all except a prlveleged few. The result Is, a sp...

ZT' Wouldn't That Jar Vnu?*— ■■ An Associated Press dispatch £from San Francisco dated February Oth says City Attorney Mathews of Los Angeles appeared yesterday before the supreme court en bane to argue the case of ex* parte Andrew Ffahler, who was upon a writ of habeas corpUß, having been arrested for violating the slaughter house ordinance passed as a result of the initiative and referendum by which the charter permits citizens to start a movement leading to legislation. The court refused to entertain oral arguments but will take the matter up on briefs within twenty days. The contention made is that the con* stitutions of the United States and Cal ifornia were violated by delegating to the people the law making power which belongs to the legislature. Now what do you think of that? Del egating to the people the law-making power which belongs to the legislature. Poor poor people, if they are to have any power it must be delegated to them. But who has this power and who does the del...

THE TOY INVENTOR. Hla Hnrdent Tnak U to Cntch the Fancy of the Paiillc. The small Inventor la nn- Important factor In the mechanical toy business, and he earns all of the living he gets In thinking up devices. lie Is most con cerned with the small mechanical toys, and, In addition to the prime requisite of putting forth something novel, he must get something which costs as lit tle as possible and which catches the fancy of the multitude. This last point Is one which is most difficult to cover. No student of the subject has ever yet been able to discover or deduce the cycle In which the, public taste moves, and it is still hit or miss as to whether a figure which walks on Its hands, an * airship with wings or an acrobat who works by gravity will be the best sell er. Then, when the Invention has been achieved, the inventor has still the problem of finding the maker who will buy it and pay a fair price.

THE LOVERS' CANDLES. An Old Covrtnhlp Cvstom That Still Prerftllft In Poland. A quaint old Bnperstillon is to this day held in Poland to the effect that two lighted candles set afloat on the river by two lovers will by their con duct foretell if the course of true love will run smooth or otherwise. The "lovers' candles" are launched at n very pretty water fete that takes plneo every summer on that part of the Vistula which runs through Poland. It commences at sunset. The river is thronged with a procession of little bonts containing masked ladles and gentlemen. Each person carries two .wreaths and two candles, the latter representing the person carrying them and the object of his or her affections. They are lighted, fixed firmly in the center of the wreaths and laid side by side in the water. Should they float down the river close together it is a sign that their lives should be united. Should they drift awny from each oth er it is a sign that the lovers will be parted, and should t...

His bill Is a practical extension of the old homestead Idea, or rather, ptrhaps, an application to the vast areas of our swamplands of the. ldea embodied In' the National Irrigation law. There are In the neighborhood of 100,000,000 acres of swamp lands In .the United States, some 70,000.000 of which have been surveyed, and the great bulk would make splendid farms If the excess of water were drained off. The Steenerson bill provides for the beginning of the work of reclamation of these hu;e areas. The measure Is framed after the Irrigation law. It pro vides that the receipts from the sale...

LOWER CALIFORNIA A Dispatch From Mexico Says the Territory May Be Sold to the I). S. Ever since the possibility of Irrigat ing the Colorado desert from the Colo rado river was first Investigated, more than fifty years ago, the question of the purchase of Lower California by the United States has been recognized as desirable and has been agitated from time to time. This proposition was mentioned by the board of army engineers, who In 1854, made an In vestigation and reported on the geo graphical conditions of this part of the country. These men ran levels from the Colorado river to this Valley and found a natural course for water to fol low over the bottom lands In Mexico, from the Colorado river to this Valley. In those days Irrigation was In Its Infancy In the United States, so but little stress was laid on its value, the principal feature dwelt on by the report being the possible effect on the climate by the filling of Salton basin with wa ter. Not very long afterwards, or dur ing...
