There was never a greater mistake made in sizing up the condition of a people than this one. ;is is clearly shown by the records.

4 Irrigation a Live Issue. That the irrigation question is a ■ 1 1 v . - topic Is e\ tdenced by the space devoted to it iii the leading magaslnea, "Irrigation in the West" forms the subject of a paper by William B. Bmythe In the January Review of Re views, who asserts in the opening paragraph that "to Theodore Roose veli fails one of the rarest opportun ities that ever came to an American president the opportunity to write his Dame and fame on the face of the enduring earth." The opportunity, he explains, is one of constructive states manship, in the largesi sense of the term t<> give the nation the greatest Industrial impulse it has received since the phenomenal settlement of the Mis is- Ipp] Valley.

PRESENT STATUS OF IRRIGATION SYSTEM The preparation of the data for tub* mission at the annual meeting, show ing the progress made in the Imperial irrigation project during the past year, brings out some surprising facts. During the past year there have been Constructed 23 miles of main canal and 106 miles of laterals, ranging in width on the bottom from 8 to 20 feet, the smallest lateral being as large as al most any one of the famous irrigation canals of Southern California, while the main Imperial canal will carry a body of water 70 feet wide on the bot tom and six feet deep. At the big drops on the main canal the water is narrowed down to 30 fe«t. and just over the drop, where it will take the plunge to the apron below, the water will be 10 feet deep and 30 feet wide, in the case of one drop the water power being estimated at 1000-horse power. The system is being constructed to make possible the distribution of four acre feet over the entire area under it in six months, while th...

THE STATE UNIVERSITY ON SCIENCE OF SOILS The world is steadily learning through the application of science to the soil. Mr. Thomas Means of the United States bureau of soils, while in Imperial a short time since, said that no soil chemist can tell from an anal ysis of soil whether it will produce a crop or not, on account of other un known factors. Among the most im portant factors is that of drainage and height of underground water level. The study of drainage in its influence on soils is new, and yet it is an inter esting one. For instance, bulletin No. 133, on "Tolerance of Alkali by Various Cul tures," recently issued by the Califor nia Agricultural experiment station, of which Prof. E. W. Hilgard is di rector, shows that near Bakersfield soil carrying 236,680 pounds of alkali in six feet of the soil, per acre, has had the alkali forced down by the simple process of irrigation, until there was but 18,<>40 pounds of alkali to the acre, on which alfalfa is now growing. Wheth...

8 RAILROAD SURVEY The survey for the San DiegO-Ratt eni railroad has now reached a point twelve miles east anil a little north of Campo, which brings it close to Ja •iiinba valley, the present survey be ing from one to two miles north of the international line. From .Tacumba valley the wagon road to Imperial val ley lead* to the northweHt, and it is believed the topography of the country -, BUCfa that the railroad will be forced to take the same course, bringing it to a DOlni alnOSt due west of Imperial. The Course which will be followed across the valley is yet open to conjec ture. If it should be found that the Southern Pacific railroad is behind the San Diego road, by no means an un acceptable hypothesis, though hidden from the public, (here can be little dOttbt that it will join the main line near Klovvingwell. Should it prove to he a competitor of the Southern Pacific, the road would be forced either to go to the northeast to pass north of the sand hills, or to the southeast, i...

The Irrigated Area. The National Homemaker asks and answurs a pertinent query with refer ence to the BUbjeot Of national irri a tion. With something over seven million acres Irrigated In the United state . which Includes a number of large Ir rigation systems and dams, all built by private capital, the question fre quently arises -why cannot an ad ditional s< yen million acres or an ad ditional twenty million acres of ari.l land in 1 transformed by private capi tal into productive irrigated farms? In other words, why should it be nedssary to ask any Gk>vernmen4 assistance for this development of the West? it is admitted that Irri gation pays; that Inrger, better, and surer crops can be raised undi.r it iiian by dependence upon the ele ments, and that irrigated communi ties are. as a rule, very prosperous ones.
