RIVER COMMISSION'S AMIABLE GABFEST Mas Been Talking of Control of the Colorado for Sev eral Years Protective Work is a Government Job, /■ i But Nobody is on the Job — Revola- of Inefficiency and Negligence That Would be Ludicrous if it Were Not Shameful. In. January, 1907,. President Roose velt sent a message to Congress on the subject of control of the Colorado, in which he urged the appropriation of $2,000,000 for permanent protective works along the banks below Yutna. The President said: "If Congress does not give author ity to make adequate provision to take up this work in the way sug gested, it must be Inferred that it ac quiesces in the abandonment of the work at Laguna and of all future at tempts to utilize the valuable public domain in this part of the country." Congress has not made provision for taking up the work. Congress has not even given a moment's thought to the matter. The representative from this district has attended to the ap pointm...

2 EXTENSIVE TREE PLANTING Hundreds of Thousands of Eucalypti Distributed Throughout the Valley. A great improvement In (ho aspect of Imperial Valley's sottlod districts la being made by the tree growths tn every section of the valley. Par ticularly within the past three years has this phase of development re ceived general attention; and this spring broader foundations than ever before are being laid on this lino. The eucalyptus trees that have gone into the ground thla spring, were there no other tree planting under taken, would bring about a notable difference In the appearance of this country within three or four years, yet this is but one feature of the tree planting movement. But the eucalyp tus, because of their remarkable growth, make probably the most no table showing. Within three years from their planting, provided they nave reasonable care, they form good shade and windbreaks, and make a pleasing break in the sky line of this level country. Of eucalyptus trees alone, ther...

6 ALGODONES CUSTOM HOUSE Opening of Station by Mexican Gov ernment Paves Way for Opera* tlon of Overland Train* Through Imperial Valley. Yesterday the new custom house : of the Mexican government at l,os Algodones, Just over the Internation al boundary line on the Inter-Cali fornia Railroad, . about seven miles down the Colorado River from Yuma, was opened for business. It Is believed that the opening of this custom house and the establish ment of a large corps of officials means that at an early date at least one of the Southern Pacific overland trains ;wlll be operated from Yuma by way ' of > the Inter-California Railroad and through Imperial Valley, instead of over the old route skirting the sand hills along the extreme easterly part -of this basin. Such a change would be hailed with pleasure by Imperial Valley settlers. It would be of much ' benefit in advertising the great re sources of this valley to the thous ands of passengers carried by these I overland trains. Senor Fra...

8 IMPORTANT RULINGS BY COMMISSIONER Contract to Convey Title Does Not Constitute Fraud in Land Entry Not Necessary to Irrigate Entire Tract To Prove Reclaimability of Desert Land When Such Irrigation Involves Watte of Water— Local Land Office Reversed on Appeal. Among the latest decisions relat ing to the public lands issued by the General Land Office are two which are of general interest to settlers in Im perial Valley. One of these refers to the expenditure of money on a desert land entry made by another than the entryman, and the other is in re gard to the distribution of water on desert land entries. In the case of Williams vs. Kirk, one of thirteen similar contests in one group and vicinity, the charge was made that the entry on desert lands had not been made for the entry man's own use or benefit but for the benefit of the Red Lands Irrigation and Power Company, and that the real entryman had done no work, con structed no irrigation ditches, expend ed no .money or labor calcul...

Within the next six or eight months, says the Los Angeles Times, it is ex- Ipected that the Imperial Valley ir rigation system, the largest in North America, will be sold. The South era Pacific Company, as intimated by President Lovett, is not in the Irriga tion business and does not want to take over active control of the prop erty. It is said the railroad would welcome some plan where by the citi zens of the valley would assume full ownership of the California Develop ment Company and run it to suit themselves.

6 THE RETURN FROM ELBA Career of the Colonel Recorded Upon a Leaf Blown in From Days ' To Be. In one of Ambrose Hlerce's satires on history as it is written, the con quest of Africa by Thaddcus Rosenfelt is recorded by the Future Historian. "In the year 1909, as the ancient Americans reckoned time, President Thaddeus Rosenfelt was for some of* fense now not known banished from his country and sent under heavy guard to Kalamazoo, an African penal colony noted for the number and fero city of its tigers. To tnese he was thrown by his keepers, as was se cretly commanded by Congress, sitting as a high court of impeachment and conviction. Out from a contemporan eous chronicle by Wee Chandler (whose works are now in the ' im perial library of Timbuctoo) it appears that the tigers would not eat him. On the contrary, he ate them, 'a marked instance,' says another writer of the period, 'of Interposition by an overrul ing Providence.' "Awed by this obvious miracle, the fallen President's keepe...

Saturday, April 23, 1910. APHIS AND LADY BOGS Pests Not Exterminated by Bug* May Be Destroyed by Emulsion Sprays. There is somewhat of a misconcep tion In the minds of many of the ranches of tho valley regarding the lady hug beetle and its effect upon the aphia, says W. K. Packard. The Stain Horticultural Board has collect ed millions of these Insects in the Northern counties of this State, and has sent some 13,000,000 to this valloy with the hopes of introducing them in sufficient numbers so that thoy may propagate here and Increase enough so that in a short time they would control tho aphis. Tho num ber imported, although large, can not begin to affect the aphis already here. These may increase sufficiently to be of, value in the year to come, for there is no doubt but the lady bug beetle is a bad enemy to the aphis. Probably a good many of 'the lady bugs j imported will die before 1 breed ing, because of the sudden change in climate, and only those hardy enough to stand the chang...
