A BOY AND A RIFLE. [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 27 April 1901
A BOY AND A RIFLE. And the Trtclc the Father Played to Make the YcAnffster Careful. Exact statistics on the subject are lacking, but it Is certain that the man who "didn't know It was loaded" kills and malms annually a great many per- i sons. The only safe rule with a gun is never under any circumstances to point it at anybody. One should always act on the assumption that it is loaded. Unfortunately, though, an average human being learns only by ex- j perience, and where a gun is concerned ! that often entails an awful price. Bearing this in mind a veteran : sportsman of this city adopted a unique method of Impressing this lesson on bis son. This is how be told i the story: i "I want my son to be a sportsman, ' so that when be gets to be as old as i his father he may have as many ' pleasant memories to look back to. . ! Therefore, on bis sixteenth birthday I , gave him a rifle. And instead of read- j ing him a long lecture on the necessity of handling the weapon carefully, I put up ...

In the census library is n record of the first census, which shows that the census of 1790 was ordered In March and completed by October, 1791, a very creditable showing wben the difficulty of communication is considered.

LABOR UNIONS IN POLITICS [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 27 April 1901
LABOR UNIONS IN POLITICS New York Organizations to Form a Party NEW YORK— For the first time cince they were organized the principal trades unions in this city decided to go into politics and to start an independent labor party. This decision was reached at a meeting of delegates from twenty-one unions, represented in the board of walking delegates. Philip Wiensemer of the Amalgamated Society of Plumbers and Gas Fitters presided. The meeting was called on account of the recent decisions of the court of appeals declaring the prevailing rate of wages law and the State stone-dress-ing law unconstitutional. These laws, the most radical of their kind that have yc-t been passed in the interest of labor, cost the labor unions many thousands of dollars in carrying on the agitation in their favor, and tbeir annulment is admitted to be a severe blow to labor. Those who conducted the agitation now say that the city officials who were supposed to be most friendly to labor did not stand by the l...

SAID TO HAVE SOLD OUT [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 27 April 1901
SAID TO HAVE SOLD OUT Claim' That Ajuinaldo's Capture Was a Fake SALT LAKE CITY, April 16.—Agulnaldo sold out to the United States for $50,000, according to E. B. Nortman, an army contractor, who arrived here from Manila today. He has been in the islands for six years. "I had private sources of information and knew that negotiations were pending between Aguinaldo and General Mac Arthur some time before I left. But I did not need this private information, for it was generally known in Manila that Aguinaldo had named his price and could be had any time it was paid. There was some hesitancy on the part of Mac Arthur in paying that amount when I left, and the deal was consequently hanging fire. The thing was fixed up for Funston to make a pretense of a capture. The correspondents sent out long before the capture knew exactly what was going to be done. "If the authorities had not known it was a cut-and-dried affair, they would never have allowed the information to be given out." "Pio del...
