Brief Outline of its Plans and Resume of its Enterprises. Great Power House at Holtville. Ice Manufactory and Refrigeration Plant at El Centro. Holton lnter=Urban Railway Brick Manufacturing Plant, Water Works and Minor Industries. Greatest Force Now Working For the Upbuilding of the Valley. Already Successful With the Brightest of Prospects for the Future In recording the progress and chron icling the development of the Imperial Valley as we endeavor to do from week to week we are struck with the re markable frequency with which we find it necessary to mention the Holton Power company and its enterprises.

pany, which is already in use, is cap able of carrying plenty of water to gen erate 3000 horse power. The present plant is operating with about 2000 miners inches of water and running one dynamo, generating about 300 horse power of current. As the power canal will carry 15,000 miners inches of water and the power company's sup ply is larger than that amount further increase in the supply of power will be only a matter of putting in additional machinery. The company has provid ed against just such a contingency and have already put in two inlets or "fore bays" as they call them and have pre pared for two large pressure pipes, while they are using but one. These pipes are about 1300 feet long, are 4 feet in diameter and run from the ••forebay" or inlet at the canal to the turbine wheel and thence to the waste way into Alamo river. In their pres ent power house one will find an up to date electrical generating plant. The building is situated on the bench along Alamo channel and below t...

tlon with no further attention. The power line is equipped with seven wires from Hoitville to El Centro. and a lesser number to Imperial and | Brawley. The line to Calexico has! not yet been completed, the strenuous | times through which that town has re- i cently passed having caused the de- 1 mand for electric lights and power to j give way to other things. However. J the subsidence of the flood having left Calexico safe and very little harmed we expect to see her go ahead now and soon be demanding and using her share of the el&ctric power and lights provided by the Holton Power com- i pany for the entire Valley. In each of j the towns of El Centro. Imperial. Brawley and Calexico a substation has been built by the Holton Power com pany. In these substations the trans formers for that particular town will be placed and from this substation the electric light and power distributing system for that town will be operated. These substations are already in oper- ation in El Centro, ...

ber of electric fans and a power line operates the machinery for the Holt ville cantaloupe growers' association and as soon as a motor can be in stalled will pump the water for the town. At Calexlco, as we have already noted, the installation of a lighting and power system has been delayed by the serious menace through which the town has passed. But the Holton Power company has already built their substa tion there and have their transformers and equipment for it and material for putting In the distributing electric light and power system for the town just as soon as matters resume their normal condition and the town is ready to re ceive them. It will thus be seen that there is already being used by the in dustries now operating with it a total of about 1 25 horse power of electricity exclusive of the power used by the Holton Power company in its own en terprises.. And with the development of this Valley the market for this power will be practically unlimited or at least limited onl...

certainty of increasing very rapidly. They will increase their capacity as soon as the present season is over and prepare for taking care of all the busi ness It. the Valley. This will be done by putting in another freezing tank, thus doubling the capacity of the plant and by building two more ice storage rooms and increasing the storing capac ity to at least 1 0,000 tons. The ma- chinery now in the building could oper ate an additional freezing tank and double the amount of refrigeration. In fact, it was put in with the expectation of operating twice the amount of freez ing tanks and refrigeration and all prep arations made for doubling the capacity of the plant before next cantaloupe season comes around. The business has increased more rapidly than was expected and is three or four times as great as was anticipated. The phe nomonal success of the cantaloupe growers has doubled up the demand for ice and will keep on increasing it and the Holton Power company will in crease their fa...

the power canal. The effect of hay- fng so large a reservoir and such a con venient water supply Is seen, all over the town In the thrifty growing trees and well kept tracts. Holtville is one of the most beautiful towns in the Val ley and the reason is largely because its citizens have taken good care of their places. Another very important property be longing to the Holton Power company Is the brick manufacturing plant at Holtville. Here they have a well equipped plant for brick making and turn out a first-class product. During the past two years more than two mil lion bricks have been burned at these hilns. The brick buildings in Holt ville and El Centre as well as all the buildings of the Holton Power company fn the Valley have been built of these bricks. Nearly one million of these bricks have been used in the buildings belonging to the Holton Power com pany alone and several hundred thous and more in the buildings belonging to the Valley State Bank of El Centro. the First State...

-as the head of the Holton Power com <pany he Is also the head of three of the •banks In the Valley and Is now organ izing the fourth. Through these banks a great deal of money has been loaned to the farmers and business men of the Valley and its Industries have been de veloped and prosperity advanced in a . great many ways. And nearly all of this has been done during the past two years and a half when the Valley was being traduced and was suffering in reputation by the heedlessness of met ropolitan newspapers and the ineffici ency of the California Development company. The work of Mr. Holt and his associates has been all the more valuable to the Valley by reason of the troublous times through which we have been passing. People took courage from the splendid optimism of Mr.Holt and went ahead with their enterprises when but for his example and cheering determination they would have faltered and failed. This was well illustrated when L. M. Holt brought suit to throw the Califor ni...

MEXICO IS RESPONSIBLE Win. E. Smythe Discusses the Colo rado River Problem William E. Smythe is the first man. so far as we are informed, to take up the question of the Colorado river and discuss it from the standpoint of jus tice to the United States and the peo ple of this valley. In his Fourth of July address he discussed the threaten ing situation on the Colorado river and urged that the annexation of Lower California would be the true, states manlike solution of the difficulty. On this topic he spoke in part as follows: • "Has the expansion of the Republic toward the southwest permanently ended with the establishment of the city and county of San Diego? In considering this question, we instinc tively look across the mountains to the great desert where rolls the Colo rado. While we are celebrating the past, the inexorable river is making history in the present. **The government of the United States, first through its administration • andjthen'through committees of both houses of...

DACHSHUNDS. Am Fifirbter* of Badsrers Th»y Have No Canine Equals. The good natured. philosophic Ger man dachshund has always been re garded as more or less of a joke i* this country. Even in the fatherla.no he is a staple for jesting. His elongat ed body, his crooked legs, his animated tail, his resemblance to a sausage who could fail to make some sort of Joke about n dachshund? But the dachshund has a very., seri ous side and a work in life. "Dachshund"' means "badger dog." Now, the badger is an animal that generally speaking, needs neither ganif laws nor sympathy, because he is able to take care of himself and fight his own battles. Naturalists place him as a link between the bear family anc* the weasels. He has about all the strenuous characteristics of both, with Borne of his own in addition. Badger baiting was formerly a bar barous rustic sport that drew trade tc country inns and taverns. A badgei was placed in a barrel, and the man whose dog could bring him out got a prize. A ...

A HISTORIC SHELLFISH. The Pnrpora Was Quite a Factor In the World's Civilization. A small sea creature has done a lot to assist the development of civiliza tion. It is known as the murex or purpura. From it the Phoenician?, manufactured the Tyrian purple, the origin of their wealth and prosperity. As each shellfish yielded but- one drop of the dyeing material and as 300 pounds were needed to dye fifty pounds of wool the home fisheries became in time exhausted. Then, finding it neces sary to seek a supply elsewhere, the traders started on the first voyage of discovery ever made. Owing to this voyage the Mediterranean, with all the countries that surround it, was dis covered. Through this small creature also the first colonies were founded. The Phoe nicians, finding it impracticable to bring home large shiploads of the fish, built at those spots where the raw ma terial abounded factories, which gradu ally developed into permanent settle ments. And as many of these colonies were founde...

Looking Into Water Conditions On July sth Messrs. Gleason, Van Horn and Farnsworth, of Water com pany No. 1 went to Yuma and to the Imperial intake to examine conditions there. They returned last Saturday and reported the river as being 2700 feet wide and from 9to 12 feet deep at the point where the dam must be built. They decided not to come down the channel to Sharp's heading as they first intended to do, but to return Ito the Valley and examine that part of the problem from this end of the line. So last Wednesday Mr. Farnsworth, of No. 1; Mr. Wade, of No. 5; Mr. Per ry of the C. D. Co. and Mr. Branden burg, of the California- Mexico Land & Cattle Co., went up above Sharp's heading to make the investigation. They took two boats with them and in tend to explore the overflowed country in Mexico and determine what if any likelihood there is of the channel cut ting back from New river to the Alamo through Beltran slough and thus di verting the water away from Sharp's heading. They...

ACROSTICS AND ANAGRAMS. ■ They Have Been Known Since the Days of tbe Psalmist. We find that the acrostic is the most ancient form of puzzling mankind. Acrostic is Greek for a number of verses the first letters of which form a word, sometimes a name and some times a sentence. The final letter may form a word, or, as Addison tells us, the letters will even run down the cen ter of the verses as a seam. The He brew poets often made their verses run over the entire alphabet. Twelve of the psalms are written on this plan, the most notable beins the One Hundred end Nineteenth. This has twenty-two di visions, or stanzas, corresponding to the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew al phabet. . Each stanza is formed of eight couplets, and the first line of each coup let in the first stanza in the original Hebrew begins with the letter aleph, the second commences with beth, the third with gimel, and so on through the alphabet. The English divisions of the psalms are called after the Hebrew let ter t...

Action is Being Urged A special committee, consisting of William E. Smythe, Ed Fletcher and Colonel Fred Jewell, will present a re- port on the Colorado river situation at the meeting of the chamber of com merce directors Friday afternoon. At the last meeting of the directors Mr. Smythe urged action looking to a convention In San Diego at an *early date as a means of crystallizing public opinion In favor of some positive action by the government. He thought, however, that such action should K be deferred for one week in order that the chamber of commerce might be sure of Its ground before calling ithe proposed convention. Mr. Smythe, who returned to Los Angeles Friday morning, was intervled^by a Sun re porter and spoke as follows: "It would not be proper for me] to anticipate the report of the committee to the chamber of commerce, but, speaking for myself, you may say, 1 that I believe San Diego should take "the Initiative by summoning a river convention to meet In this city early n...
