6 PALO VERDE LAND CASE Entrymen Not to Be Disturbed By Result of Hearing On Overflow Question.

Imperial Valley Press. VOL. X. NEW "NATIONALIST" PARTY ITS PLATFORM CONSTRUCTED FROM ROOSEVELT'S SPEECH ON JOHN BROWN'S BATTLE GROUND AT OSSAWATOMIE We cannot afford weakly to blind ourselves to the actual conflict which faces us today. The issue is joined, and we must fight or fall. We must drive the special Interests out of politics. Every special interest lift entitled to justice — full, fair and — but not one is entitled to a W6te in congress, a vote on the bench, or to representation in any public office. The constitution guarantees protection to property, and 'we must make that promise good. But it does not give the right of suffrage to any corporation. . The absence of effective state, and especially national, restraint upon un fair money-getting has tended .to create a small class of enormously wealthy and economically powerful men, whose chief object is to hold and increase their power. The prime need is to change the conditions which enable these men to accumulate f power ...

8 A COTTON PROBLEM How to Prevent California Product From Going to Japanese Mills. (San Diego Union.) Naturally, the Imperial Valley cot ton-growers will sell their product wherever they can do so most ad vantageously. If the best offers come from Japan, the cotton will go to that country. At the same time the pros pect that this new Industry will send Its raw material abroad for manufac ture is causing protests on economic as well as patriotic grounds. The Bakersfield Echo voices a very preva lent sentiment when it says: "We do not want to see the people of the Imperial Vaalley raising cotton and exporting it in the raw state to 'Japan to be manufactured. If we are going to raise cotton In this state let us manufacture it here. "As soon as the cotton-growing has advanced to a stage that will justify it, cotton mills should be established at the nearest possible point where the climatic and transportation facili ties are favorable. Certainly the raw cotton from the Imperial Valley s...
