Imperial Valley Press. VOL. VII VICTORY IS ASSUMED The Results of a Careful Canvass of the Proposed New County Show that County Division Will Carry and El Centro County Seat The campaign is practically over and the workers for county seat will see the result of their labors. The towns of the valley that are candidates -for county seat honors have led a good fight. Each one of the towns at this writing knows pretty well how the vote will stand on election day. The vot ers throughout the entire proposed new rcounty have been very free to express their sentiments and It does not take a particularly careful calculator to figure out which Is going to win in the contest. In the first place the town of Im perial started out with a great deal of puffed up pride — proud of wnat she failed to say. A great deal of noisy noise was made, which attracted con siderable attention, but 'ere long this subsided to a little buzz, at about which time El' Centro stepped Into the arena — putting forth a f...

It shows very clearly that the now road from San Di ego will not sxo through nor close to Imperial; Howe would not print it in his pajvV because it proved so* c?nclusiyeiy that'he was not telling the truth and had no foundation for the falsehood appearing in liis paper that the San Diego and Arizona would gd through Imperial.

HOLT'S STATEMENT Takes up the Assertions Made by the Imperial Push and Proves Them False Ladies and gentlemen : I cannot make a speech and most of you know it. I jndt came here to do a little talking tonight and state a few facts, and I do not propose to make a whole lot of as* sertions without any proof. I want to give you some facts and g*ve you the proof of what 1 have to state. I have always made it a rule not to pay any attention to personal attacks, no matter where they came from, but the last six or eight weeks this has gone' to sucii an extent that I have felt it a 'duty I owe to my friends that I make some state ments, because 1 appreciate the fact that I have a great many friends who have stood by me and refuse to believe these attacks, though they have not heard any statements from me. I simply want to put up some ot theee things to you and let you judge for yourselves. I have not a written speech, but there were so many things I could not trust my memory to remember, so ...

BACKING WATER Imperial is Supposed to be 1 aking Steps to Defeat County Division. Imperial, realizing that It Is beat, has been at work for some time past to devise ways and means as to best get around a bad mess.. It Is customary for the bully to always furnish an excuse for havfr.g gotten licked, so In this case It was fully expected that Imperial would come forth with some excuse for some of the things It had done, and was going to do In the future. Njw, here comes a bug*a-boo about three big corporations working for anotner town, but we would particularly call yo'jr attention to the statement they make that they would rather have all the amblUons of Imperial burled under the sea than have the valley come under the despotism of allied corpora tions In the first place there are no allied corporations, but the statement that there are Is simply- paving way for Imperial to back water. She's beat and the push knows it. and unless the push can make the people believe some of their vll...
