The objects of the Farmers' union are stated to be fraternal and essen- tially non-political, but some of the most astute politicians of the state are connected with the organization, and if it maintains its policy of re- maining out of politics ...

About that time there was a good deal said and written on the subject, but it subsequently ceased to Inspire interest from the general pub- lic. Recently, however, the rain induc- ing experiments of Charles Mallory Hatfield in southern California have given the matter great prominence. It seems to be a well established fact that the young California cloud engineer, under contract, has produced in the vicinity of Los Angeles a rainfall of eighteen inches. According to the account, no rain at all fell in southern California during October, November and December of 1903 and January of last year. Some of the leading business men of Los Angeles, realizing the disastrous effect of the long continued drought on the commercial interests of the city and vicinity, decided to see for themselves whether or not the pretensions of Hat- field as a ra...
