ROOSEVELT'S HOT SHOT Extracts From the President's Message Carrying War Into the Heart of the Enemy's , Country, the Citadel of Predatory Wealth It Is to bo observed that an em ployers' liability law doe's not really mean mulcting the employers in dam age suits. It merely throws upon the employer the burden of accidental In surance against injuries which are sure ta come. It requires him either to bear, or to distribute through insurance the loss which can readily be borne when distributed, but which, if undistrib uted, bears with frightful hardship up on the unfortunate victim of accident.

IN THE SANE SOUTHWEST Being Some Rambling Reflections on the Mental Characteristics of Dwellers in the Reclaimed Desert "of the Colorado ALLEN KELLY This community of desert pioneers, reclaimers of the arid land and build ers of a county well-named Imperial, Is different in many ways from any other frontier settlement I have ever known, and for something more than thirty years I have had more or less intimate acquaintance with the sel vage of civilization In the West — the mines, the cow country and the non descript border towns. The men and women who have come into Imperial Valley are different from the people of the frontier that has gone into history — and fiction — with its wild, crude customs and its ele mental passions, virtues and vices. These people of the new Southwest are homebuilders, not adventurers of the earlier type, and they have brought with them unimpaired the spirit of order and the social seemliness of established communities. Here is one fact whose significance ...

ROUTE OF SPRECKELS ROAD Will Be Entirely In American Terr! • tory If Line Is Found Practicable. Tho announcement made In the Spreckels paper — the Union — that In building the road to Yunia "the com pany desires to keep fntirely within the United States, if possible," will be received with great satisfaction by tho people in this southwestern cor ner who are depending on John D. Spreckels for the opening up of the great commercial highway that is des tined to make San Diego the gate way of Southern California, Arizona and much of the country beyond. Spreckels, as the builder of the road, could hardly be expected to car ry it through American territory und er exceedingly difficult conditions and heavy expense, if such condtions ex isted, while an easy and cheaper road could be run parallel with the border line through Mexican territory, but the people have certainly looked to him to give the route through h^s own country every reasonable preference.

Just what amount was expended on river work, not counting the cost of moving tracks near Salton Sea, the railroad officials doubtless will be able to show by. their books, and the Gov ernment, is bound -in good faith to pay what is justly due in redemption of the promise made by President Roosd* velt'When he appealed to the South ern Pacific to save Imperial Valley.
