Imperial Press AND FARMER. VOL. 1. WHAT ABOUT THE IMPERIAL SOILS ? WASHINGTON SOIL EXPERT'S REPORT COMPARED WITH THE FACTS-A HASTILY PREPARED REPORT TELLS ONLY A PORTION OF THE TRUTH— SOME OF THEIR CONCLUSIONS ALREADY DISPROVEN PROF. HILGARD CALLS IN QUESTION SOME OF THEIR STATEMENTS— WALTER L. VAIL KNOWS WHAT HE IS ABOUT AND IS SATISFIED— OTHER VERY POSITIVE EVIDENCE. THE EXPECTED REPORT IS PROVING TO BE A BOOMERANG. It is very natural for members of the human race to look upon the dark side of a picture and be very pessimistic regarding all questions connected with future develop ments. The weather is the most pro lific subject for unfavorable comment. It is too hot or too cold, too wet or too dry, or too windy, too stormy, too sultry. In the spring the farmer finds the season too late and too cold ; after a little it is so wtt that the seed will rot in the ground; then it comes off pleasant and a drought threatens to destroy the crop, then there is too much rain again; then an ea...

2 look Upon, and the barley on that par ticularly alkali corner in as fin- a* an) on the tract. ll< -re is an error of judgment for which there is no excuse The ex pert ought to know whether barley would grow in that soil or not and if he does not know it he ought to re sign his position and go to sawing w ood. Mr. Holt Is a reliable man. He is president of the First National Hank of Imperial and no man can call In question his statements. The expert did not Hay that a Tew yearn hence the barley would not grow there, but that the barley would not grow there this year, and probably the seed would would not germinate. It did germin ate and the barley Ih growing. The experts admit, that about one half of the land In the Delta is all right and one-half Is either too rough for Irrigation or contains too much alkali. If their statements were true the eaSS would not be a serious one. The Imperial * oinpany has already elim inated 600.000 acres as being undesir able, thus leaving about 5...

No Wright Irrigation District. There having been no rumors circu lated to the effect that the Imperial Settlements were to be incorporated ruder one or more irrigation dis trletfl under the Wright Law. we are authorized to ttatC that no such step is contemplated by the Imperial Bys tern management or by the people holding land under that system, it was suggested to the management that such a change might be advantageous to all parties concerned, hut the adop tion of such a plan has never been - eriously considered. There are a great many good features about the Wright Law, but there are also many weak points— One of the weakest of which :s the fact that public sentiment is so Strongly set against the law. that any attempt to adopt a district plan in any locality would have to face a very j strong opposition regardless of the merits of such opposition. The management Of the California Development Company carefully stud led the best methods of managing a water system under the laws of...

AN ABLE REVIEW OF DESERT RECLAMATION BY THE MIDWINTER TIMES. Hear in mind that the word <i- crt" is often s misnomer, it is strange that a people claiming tO be intelligent, and leading the world in farming, ever tolerated such 1 word, and allowed its Idea of sterility to be applied tO its best lands. Kven lifter 11 was found false as applied tO the \.i 1 prairies of Kansas and Nebraska, II was still SliPPOaed true in those States where the rainfall was lighter. It took years to learn what the sim plesi chemistry of agriculture should have taught thai the scarcity of rain fall made the soil richer. It is only in the lands having rainfall enough to leach out the nitrogen, potash nnd phosphoric acid thai real sterility Is found Where the rainfall is too light for vegetation, ...

GOVERNMENT REPORT ON IMPERIAL VALLEY INACCURACY, GUESS WORK AND SUPPRESSION OF MATERIAL FACTS These are the Characteristics of a Document Prepared by the Youthful "Expert" of the Bureau of Soils, the Deductions of Which are Being Proven False by Growing Crops. There are many things within the power of the ordinary individual. There was once a dog which succeeded in eating a rattlesnake, which was a great accomplishment for a dog of its size. But the dog spent the remainder of its days regretting, as it went creeping toward the grave, that it did so. Often it happens that young men, in the enthusiasm of youthful spirit and undue responsibility forced upon them, are led into positions which they regret for the remainder of their daj's. It is believed by the writer that such will be the experience of the almost boyish young man whom the bureau of soils of the Agricultural Department sent to Imperial to report on the soils of this valley. But if the young man had been older, if he had b...

Barley, corn, alalfa, water melons.cantaloupes aitd most of the berries, grapes, tigs, apricots and peaches will do almost as well in this grade of soil as in lands that contain much less, the chief dan ger in growing fruits being the fact that their roots are liable to go deep into the subsoil and thus reach the alkali accumulated there.

Main person* familiar with sugar Cane have predicted that the Imperial valley would \it tind in sugar cant one of its most profitable products, mu that would produce from *lm per year to the acre upward, and it is interest ing tO know that a thorough test is tO be made this year. A short time since K. Mitchell, foreman of a sugar plan* tatiou in one of the Hawaiian islands. visited his brother, Hem v Mitchell* at Imperial, and stcured a piece of land here.

What is it? Egyptian cotton, to be sure Now we expect you to ask what Egyptian cotton is; whether it differs from any other cotton; how it is raised; where the market it; what it is worth; what it looks like, and 'steen other Questions, But you may as well save your breath, for you will want it all when you tackle a job to chop cotton.
