Railroad Building [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 9 November 1901
Railroad Building That a big step will be taken in connection with the building of the Los Angeles, Imperial and Arizona railroad in the course of a few weeks now seems a certainty. It is expected during the coming winter to complete the construction of the grade for the road from Calexico through Imperial to Old Beach, on the Southern Pacific railroad, and the actual work of making the grade will soon be in progress. The road is expected to pass east of the business quarter of Imperial. It is hoped that it will be but about a year until trains are actually running over the road. The amount of freight which is in sight for the road, even for construction purposes in connection with the irrigation system, would make the road a paying property now, while at the rate the land is being brought under cultivation it is certain that there will be a vast increase in business in the near future. It is probable that as soon as the Southern Pacific depot is built at Old Beach that the name of ...
Dredger Coming [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 9 November 1901
Dredger Coming Before a great while one of the Development company's dredgers will start on a rather remarkable trip. It will leave the headgate at the river, proceed along the entire route of the big canal, digging a channel for itself, until it finds its way into Mesquite lake. There it will be employed in throwing up a dike to deepen the water in the lake. This lake will serve a double purpose. Being close to Imperial, it will be a very pleasant resort for hunting, fishing and picnicing, while there will be provided an excellent reservoir from which to draw water for the irrigation of lands further northward. The lake covers 7000 acres of land, and the array of water fowls to be seen there at present surpasses, probably, any similar body of water near to a settlement in the state. The lake at present is very difficult of approach, owing to the shallow, marshy land around the border, but when the dike is thrown up the water will be deepened and an easy approach will be made.
From Diamond Lake. [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 9 November 1901
From Diamond Lake. F. P. Rand and son, Clarence, of Escondido, have been looking over the country for several days. Mr. Rand selected a tract of land east of Blue lake and will return in short time with teams and implements to put in crops this winter. J. A. Jasper, supervisor of this district, and Mr. Griggs, road master, were here the other day. Mr. Jasper made arrangements to have a good crossing made across New river at this point. Ed stone and C. Davis, who have been in this section several days, have returned to their cattle ranch in lyower California.

WORKING FOR RAILROAD [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 9 November 1901
WORKING FOR RAILROAD About the first thought that occurs to any person viewing the Imperial tract and noting the great development work in progress is the need of a railroad. That a railroad will come in the near future seems a certainty, but the requirement of the times to hasten the building of the road is that every man having an interest in the valley should do his utmost to secure the road. Two railroad projects are already under consideration. One of these provides for a road from Calexico through Paringa, Imperial and Rancherita to a junction with the Southern Pacific, with a branch through Eastside, thus leading on to Los Angeles. The othor is the projected San Diego and Eastern railroad. The latter may be built. It is a large enterprise. The former must and will be built, because it is not a gigantic undertaking, and because the interests of the Imperial settlements demand imperatively close communication with the metropolis of Southern California. Just what step will be ta...
The Levelers [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 9 November 1901
The Levelers The level corps of the surveyors was in Imperial Monday night again, having made a run from Calexico. These men, under D. L. Russell, are kept rushing these da,ys under the pressure of the construction force, the latter crowding the ditches ahead with great rapidity. There has never been a time when greater activity prevailed in spreading the water over the Imperial lands than at present, and as a result, thousands of acres will for the first time be under water during the next few weeks. There are scores of land claimants who are anxious to come to their lands as soon as water is' within reach of them, and who will be flocking in during the next ninty days. This means that the level party will be kept on the jump for three months at least.
Telephone System [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 9 November 1901
Telephone System The telephone system put in by W. F. Holt, which has been a great advantage in the development of the Imperial tract is to be extended and much improved. At present there are but four telephones on the line, one each at Calexico, Imperial, Flowingwell and Iris. A number of farmers living along the line have been anxious to secure connections, and these are now to be made. A. G. Walin of Los Angeles, an expert electrician, has taken charge of the line and will make many improvements, developing the system with the general growth of the colony.
Ditching Machine [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 9 November 1901
Ditching Machine The ditcher, which was first set at work near Calexico, has cut its way through to a point about eight miles southwest of Imperial, and is said to be a complete success. As drawn along, the machine plows the ground and a conveyor carries the dirt to the bank of the ditch. Sixteen horses are required to draw it.
ADVANCING NORTHWARD [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 9 November 1901
ADVANCING NORTHWARD By steady stages the work of constructing the main canal and laterals is advancing to the northward, and within a short time the center of activity will be at Imperial, instead of Calexico. The main office of the surveyors will probably not be moved, but the field corps and the construction camps will soon be in this vicinity. At present there are four camps of the construction force on the main canal, one in Mexico, Masten's camp at the big bend of the canal, Forrester's camp with the big ditcher and another camp still nearer Imperial. Within a few days a camp will be established for digging the main lateral, to pass east of Imperial. Heretofore most of the land under irrigation has been at the southern end of the tract, but the amount of land in the immediate vicinity of Imperial subject to irrigation will make rapid strides hereafter.
Rockyford Melons [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 9 November 1901
Rockyford Melons T. P. Banta, who is doing a vast amount of good for the Imperial settlements by testing the ground for various crops on his model farm, has had experience with the Rockyford cantalope before coming here as well as on his Imperial farm. He estimates that they can be grown and crated for 30 cents a crate, holding 48 melons. There ought to be a vast demand for these eantalopes early in the spring as soon as the railroad is built for a much better price, from the Eastern as well as the Coast markets.
Lumber For Canals [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 9 November 1901
Lumber For Canals One of the greatest tasks the California Development company now has facing it is getting in the drops and gates in the various canals and laterals. A large amount of lumber has already accumulated at Flowingwell, and contracts have been let for hauling it, while the carpenter force necessary for the great amount of work to be done has been organized. Teams hauling lumber will soon be more numerous, though a number are now at work.
Sowing Alfalfa [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 9 November 1901
Sowing Alfalfa It seems to be the sentiment of the Arizona people that February is the best month in which to sow alfalfa where there is an abundance of water, as it will then grow steadily without interruption by frost. Where water is scarce it is thought best to sow early, that the plants can get a longer chance, at moisture. For that reason, they have been accustomed to sow eariy in their old home, but will here sow late.
Desert Telephone [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 9 November 1901
Desert Telephone Referring to the Imperial telephone system, the Redlands Citrograph says: •'The line runs from Flowingwell to Calexico, connecting the whole bunch of desert towns, Imperial, Iris and Cameron Lake with Flowingwell. To think of towns down on the desert is a hard shock to old-timers, but a complete telephone system — give us air, please, so we can get our breath!"
Business Blocks [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 9 November 1901
Business Blocks The adobe business building being erected in Calexico for the Imperial Mercantile company is approaching completion, and will be an ornament to that town. The same company will soon put up a similar building on the northwest corner of Eighth street and Imperial avenue, in Imperial, and will later build at Paringa.
PROFIT IN DAIRIES [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 9 November 1901
PROFIT IN DAIRIES For some years Imperial will draw lessons from the Salt River Valley, Arizona, where farming has been conducted for years under conditions similar to those exisiting here. Gordon H. True of the Arizona experiment station has issued a bulletin giving the results of studies of the dairy industry in that valley. He kept a record of the value of the output of 58 dairy herds for the year ended with October, 1900, and found that 42 herds yielded more than $32 per cow, the estimated cost of feed and care during that year of partial drought, while 16 herds fell below the cost point. The total range of returns was from $13.28 per cow a year to $54.80, and this great range of returns he attributed to the character of the stock kept. This illustrates most forcibly the need for securing only good dairy stock by those who wish to engage in the dairy business. One hundred cheap cows can drive a man into bankruptcy while one good cow can keep the wolf from the door. About the low...
