In the North BRAWLEY AND IRRIGATION DISTRICTS 4 AND 8 SUBSCRIPTIONS FOR THE PRESS MAY BE LEFT AT BRAWLEY POSTOFFICE. The streets of Brawiey bear testimony to the activity of farmers throughout this section oi the valley, for compara tively few of them are coming to town these days. A large acreage of grain crops is being rushed in, even though the fanners realize that light yields are a certainty for crops put in so late as this. There are many of the earlier crops, however, which are making splendid showing. This is true in both No. 4 and 8 districts. The residents of No. 8 district are anxious to see greater progress on the bridge over New river, for if it is not completed before high water, No. 8 will be shut off from communication with the outside world for a time. This dis trict is not now what it was a year ago. Then there was not a settler on that side of New river. There was nothing, in fact, but unfinished dry ditches. Now there are many thrifty farmers with some splendid c...

ratio and flows into Kansas. In this case the United States has just obtained leave to intervene. This suit is one of tremendous importance, whose outcome it is impossible even to guess. The other question, that of the conflicting claims of navigation, was in the United States courts in New Mexico some years ago on a suit brought by the War De partment to enjoin the diversion of wa ter from the Rio Grande. In this suit the Departments of Agriculture and the Interior were covertly fighting the War Department, for although they did not openly intervene, their agents and ex perts afforded all possible help to the irrigators. This suit, we believe, never got to the Supreme Court. A grave in ternational complication is involved, and while the facts as to the disposition of the suit are not available, we have the impression that it is in abeyance, pending the result of negotiations with Mexico. As there is a similar question in regaid to the use of the Milk river, which rises in Montana, ...

DOMESTIC WATER Improvements for Local plant fo Be Installed at Once * .. $ Word comes from F. C.

This includes large pipes, with greatly increased storage capacity fn the way of tanks, etc., and when thes'tTai'e in place the town will have a good permanent domestic water system, having already outgrown the temporary system put" in two years ago. Mr. Paulin adds that material for the electric light plant, it is hoped, can be sent very shortly.

LIQUOR CASE DISMISSED Temperance People Decline to Pro- ceed With Third Complaint The third case against '"Bob" Davis, on which lie was charged with conduct ing the business of selling liquor, which was set for trial Tuesda} morning of this week, was dismissed by Justice Banta on account of the non-appearance of Deputy District Attorney Andrews and the prosecuting witness. Some days previous to the day set for trial the temperance people of the town who had employed Detective Weaver to secure evidence against illicit liquor sellers wrote Mr. Andrews that unless he could secure a change of venue from the Court of Justice Banta to that of some justice not believed to be biased in favor of the defendant, they would not stand the further expense of bring ing the witness to Imperial. The non appearance of Mr. Andrews was sup posed to be due to that letter, but no word had been received from him up to the time set hot the trial.

GOVERNMENT CONTROL San Diego Paper Comments on Pos= sible Change Here [The Press republishes the following as an illustration of a great amount of attention Imperial valley is receiving, without endorsing everything in the article.] It is as apparent as anything in the future can be that ultimately the gov ernment will own and operate the irri gation works on the Colorado desert, and this being the case, the sooner that condition is brought about the better it will be for all concerned, for when the transfer is made uncertainties will cease, and they will then only cease. The Imperial Land and Water com pany have accomplished most wonder ful results. They found the deserl an absolute desert — with miles and miles of utterly worthless area — and they have converted it into one of the most fer tile spots in the world, witli 70,000 to 80,000 acres of actually producing land, with a population of between 8,000 and 10,000, and with schools, banks, churches and other equipments of civili ...

CROP CONDITIONS Some Magnificent Fields, but with Others Not Doing Well It is impossible, probably, to give an account of crop conditions through Im perial valley that will enable the non resident to form a correct idea of exist ing conditions, while even people resid ing here find it impossible to estimate the yield of grain this season. As has been stated in the Press, there is an acreage of nearly 70,000, principally in barley, some of which is practically ready for harvest, with other fields just coming above the ground. Some of the early fields, which have had an abundance of irrigation, are as promising crops as were ever seen in any part of the world. In a few cases the crops have suffered for want of water, and while the yield of hay may be great, the grain will not fill out well. In still other fields, on account of late planting or late irrigating there will not be a heavy yield even of hay. These latter fields are in the minority, but are sufficiently numerous to illustra...

It is designed to carry a maxi mum of about 2000 inches of water un der 42 feet pressure, and when this body of water is thrown through a tur bine wheel, the power generated will be ample to meet all requirements of the valley for a number of years. No effort is being made yet to fill the No. 5 reservoir, and will not be until there is an increase in the flow of water in the canals. This makes it necessary to depend on the No. 7 canal for water for the No. 5 system. This has made it necessary to hold back fanning opera tions in that district, though it is now expected th...
