CORN GROWING How to Raise Indian Corn in Imperial Valley The raising of old fashioned field corn like. we used to have "back East" is coming to be quite a business with the Imperial Valley farmers, many of them preferring it to Kaffir or Egyptian corn. For the purpose of learning what we might in regard to its culture from the farmers who have grown it In order that we might tell others who wish to grow It we have enquired of a number of our farmers who have had experience In the matter and herewith . present a concensus of the advice giv en. This corn should be planted as early as July Ist to get best results, but can be planted as late as August 1 5th and still make a good crop. Mr J. V. Taggart. of Holtville, who raised a fine field of 1 2 acres on his farm in Number Seven last year, and who had large experience with the same cropln the Yuma Valley before coming here, says the ground should be plowed if possible and thoroughly ir rigated. Then as soon as possible harrow the groun...

IMPERIAL CREAMERY CLOSED Unable to Secure Patronage the En terprise Suspends Operations Recently we pointed out the rapid concentration of the shipping business at El Centro and called attention to the fact that in this particular line we led all the Valley towns. The reason for this is *he fact that El Centro is so centrally located that it is far more convenient for shippers than Imperial and they therefore prefer to come to this town, which they can do in a few minutes, rather than to drive over the long, hot, dusty road to Imperial which would take several hours. This Is. well illustrated in the case of the dairymen. Before shipping facili ties were supplied at El Centro the dairymen", were, perforce, compelled to haul their product to Imperial no mat ter what the distance. While this condition lasted the Imperial merch ants were the beneficiaries of the busi ness thus brought to their town. This was all right and a fine thing for Im perial merchants but it was a hardship on the...

THE CADY CASE Important Decision Reodered by the Secretary of the Interior On December 2nd last we published the decision of the Commissioner of the General Land Office in the contest case of Meserve vs. Cady involving the S 1-2 of Sec. 17, Tp. 13 S. R # 14 E, S. B. M. This is the case where Meserve owned the water stock and Cady filed on the land. As soon as one year went by and Cady made his annual proof Meserve started a contest against him on the ground that as he had not bought any water stock and could not get any water for his land owing to the fact that Meserve owned the water stock for it; therefore Cady's annual proof was fraudulent and should be cancelled in order that Meserve might take the land. It was a plain case of the same old contention that the water is owned apart from the land and that the owner of the water con trols the land. It will be remembered that Register Crookshank and Receiver Klnney ruled against Cady' and in favor of Meserve and his contention * that...

Imperial Valley Press. VOL. VI A DESERT KLONDIKE Imperial Valley Farmers Reaping Phenomenal Profits From Cantaloupe Growing Operations of the Packing and Shipping Associations in Different Parts of the Valley and the Experience of the Individual Farmers Show Great Profits. A Splendid In dustry Well Established Cantaloupe growing is proving such a money maker in this Valley this sea son and the growers are getting such unheard of returns from their crops that it is almost dangerous to tell it for fear our readers will call us down for drawing the long bow. However, the facts are here to show for them selves and if our statements seem too large remember we won't come down a cantaloupe till those who doubt have come and seen for themselves. It will be remembered that some canta loupes were grown at Brawley last year and the business fairly established. The Brawley growers however did not make any big thing out of the busi ness except in a few instances but like the wide awake and progr...

A TRANSFORMATION floods in the Colorado River and For mation of the Salton Sea [BY PKOFESSOK EDGAR L. LAKKIN.] The writer, six years ago, made an ex cursion in the great continental plateau, that vast elevated region of the conti nent, Colorado. That rock-hewn state is but a part of the mighty apex of the United States, for the colossal upland region includes Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, part of Nevada and all 6f Colo rado. This entire area, but more espec ially Colorado, is to the geologist one of the most interesting regions of the globe. Upheaval followed upheaval; the entire etate has been twisted and torn by con vulsions, and primeval strata are up turned and exposed to view in inextric able confusion. Mighty faults abound, eeams and rifts are to be Been in the most ancient layers and giant rocks are piled on rocky beds. The elevation above the sea ranges from 7000 to 8000 feet. However, the area was once much depressed and during eons of time the Palezoic and a portion of the Me...

Onions. Onions are almost the best nervine known. No medicine is so useful in cases of nervous prostration, and there is nothing else that^ will so quickly re lieve and tone a wornout system. On ions are useful in all cases of coughs, colds and Influenza, in consumption, Insomnia, hydrophobia, scurvy, gravel and! kindred liver complaints. Eaten every other, day, they soon have* a clearing and whitening effect on the complexion. Where the Lady Was Going. An official of a New England roao told the following: The ticket agents in the Boston office of our road are greatly troubled by patrons who, when wishing to pur chase tickets, lay down a coin and neither tell where they are going nor how many tickets they want. This ne cessitates one or more questions on the part of tl\e patient agent. One day a little elderly lady approached the win dow of the office, placing a large fami ly umbrella on the slab, and, after fumbling nervously in her pocketbook, pulled out a quarter and laid it down...

SECRETARY'S OPINION Don't Agree With I. W. Gleason that Water of Colorado River Belongs to C. D. Company In last week's Imperial Standard President Gleason of Water Co. No. 1 publishes a very hasty and ill tempered attack upon us, in which, however, he admits that he believes with Messrs. Stephens and Stephens that the Cali fornia Development company owns' the waters of the Colorado river, and that "neither the stockholders nor any per sons other than stockholders have ever made any appropriations of water nor done any act upon which a claim of right can be based." He also argues that it is best for the people of the Valley that the water rights- belong to the California Development company and not to* the people, for he fears they might not be any account if the people owned them, but is sure they are all right in California Development com pany ownership. Of course we know Mr. Gleason is so constituted that he hates everybody that don't agree with him and pursues them with vindict...

TO DISINCORPORATE Strong Move Among People of Imperi al to Terminate Their Town Gov ernment That the rank and file of the people "of Imperial are getting awfully tired of paying exhorbitant taxes for no a other purpose than to try and boom an alkali flat for the Imperial Land company -is becoming more and more apparent. w Ever since the town was incorporat ed it has been a source of wonderment among the taxpayers as to what bene fit it was to them and where they got any returns for the money they paid. The "powers that be" levied a tax on everything and everybody. Every busi ness man was taxed to the limit on his business, in addition to being taxed to the limit on his property. In spite of such excessive taxes there was never more than just enough money to pay salaries. If any sidewalks were need ed the property owner must pay for' them. If the street got dusty and needed sprinkling the business men must dig up not only for that but for the water itself that was used in wet ting do...

Imperial Valley Press. VOL. VI THE WATER'S WORK How It Has Cut Large Channels Through the Imperial Valley All Danger of Flood Forever Removed, and Excellent Drainage Pro vided. Present Conditions and future Outlook Clearly Stated. One of the most interesting of the many things that have taken place in this Valley within the past eighteen months has been the erosion of the channels of New river and Alamo. At the, time the pioneer settlers came to this country neither of these channels presented any serious obstacle both of them being comparatively shal low and easy to cross. The Alamo channel in fact had a very imperfectly defined course for much of the dis tance through the Valley, while New river was easily crossed at almost all points along its course. But the cele brated Mexican intake was cut in the fall of 1904 and by the first of March, 1905, it had begun to divert a quantity cf water from the Colorado river that was in excess of that required by the people of this Valley. So ...

Present Conditions and Future Outlook . Clearly Stated. Continued From First Page being discharged down the Alamo channel from the waste gate at Sharps has steadily decreased. But as this water could be discharged through other gates into New river, this fact was not necessarily significant; but the fact that the water level in Alamo channel above Sharp's Is lower than it was when the water volume was only one-half as great is very important. It can indicate nothing less than a con siderable increase in the capacity of the outlet from the Alamo channel by which the flood is carried across to New river. This question is' 1 now re ceiving considerable - attention at the hands of the directorate of the various water companies. It would be possi ble for such an outlet to drain the water away from the Alam...

NEW RIVER'S WORK Destruction of Mexican Well Nigh Complete. Calexico Apparently Safe Calexico was a busy place during several days of the past week and while the worst is over and the river is not cutting any more still the people do not feel fully reassured. As noted in our last issue a strong effort was made to carry the overpour up the old channel of the river some four hundred yards west of Mexicali. For this purpose several tons of dyna mite was exploded in that stream in an endeavor to deepen its course. But all in vain. The water elected to trav el down the more easterly channel and wash away the town of Mexicali. So last Saturday the overpour cut through the hard formation in New river where the old wagon bridge used to stand and striking the soft dirt in the east channel began to cut away the founda tions of Mexicali. So rapidly did this overpour cut back that in less than 24 hours it went more than a mile. This took it up to the intersection of the old channel of New river...

CANNOT PAY INTEREST Lack of Ready Money and the Neces sity of Work to be Done the Reason Given Los Angeles Examiner The bondholders of the California Development company are midway be tween perplexity and panic, because, for the first time in its ten years of ex istence the corporation has failed to pay the semiannual bond interest. On the first day of this month $15, 000 was due the thirty holders of bonds in this city. The officials of the company decided in the latter part of May that the interest could not be paid assigning as a reason the lack of ready money, and the necessity for immediate repair of the damages done to the lands around Calexico by the recent overflow of the Colorado river. The California Development com pany, of which Epes Randolph is presi dent and W. T. Heffernan secretary, owns about 80,000 acres near the Mexican line, enough water to cover 400,000 acres in northern Mexico and aivadditional supply of water to irrigate 250,000 acres in American territory.
