ELECTRIC OPPORTUNITIES IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ONE GREAT POSSIBILITY WHICH RAILROAD MEN CANNOT AFFORD TO OVERLOOK There is war being (raged in South ern California between giant corpora tions which may have a wider signiti cance than is generally recognized. There are three factors in the contest: The Clark Salt Lake road and Clark- Hook Los Angeles Traction Company as allies, the various lluntington-Hell matl electric roads, as the "party of the second part," and the Harrimao interests, including the Southern Pa cific, and probably, by inference, the latter having the ••moral*' support of the Santa Fe. The tirst and second parties are contestants for certain electric road franchises. The third party finds its natural place as a protestattt and ob jector, for there can be no reasonable doubt that the electric roads are to a degree undermining the steam roads in business and are a Standing menace of still further predatory activity. The steam railroad has reached about its maximum of ...

First Brick Laid Misv Katherine PattOti had the honor of laying the first brick in Im perial Wednesday. The affair was impromptu, but s<> much interest has been manifested in getting the first brick block under way that Immediately there was quite an assemblage of peo ple to watch the progress of work. There has been some delay in per fecting plans and in getting in lime, but it is believed now that brick lav ing will continue on this and other buildings at a good rate through the summer. The building on which work has been begun is the property of the Im perial Land Company and Wilbur Clark. It will have a frontage of 40 feet on the avenue and a depth of 50 feet, and will be used by the laud company as an office, by Mr. Clark as a hardware store and by Miss Clark as the postoflice, the upper floor being designed for a place of assemblage.

Best Method of Seeding Alfalfa. the Ontnga Judd Farmer gives some very valuable information rela tive to alfalfa. It is written from a standpoint where irrigation is not nec essary, but many of the points made apply to this section of country: This wonderful forage plant requires treat care during the first few months. In t ho first place the soil should be rich, open and porous, with plenty of water available several feet below the surface. The land must not be wet, as the plant absolutely refuses to grow where its roots are constantly soaked with water. In preparing the seedbed make every effort to secure an open, porous soil. Plow deep and subsoil where practicable. Pulverize thoroughly and compact carefully. The seeds are so small that the soil particles must be fine so that they can come in contact witn them. Then, too, the soil must ue sufficiently compact to prevent disastrous drying out. Devoting land to cow peas, beans, rape or potatoes the previous year is very satisfactor...

Money in Hens. The Tulare Register tells an inter esting story of how much money can be made from a few carefully selected hens. It says: Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Gist devote at tention to poultry raising as a side issue to their general fanning, and have given a copy of their egg ac count for the year 1901, They aimed to keep about 17.'. white Leghorns and 26 barred Plymouth ttocks, the former to do the laying and the latter to do the setting and furnish the fried chicken when the minister came. The combination works well. Following is the product in eggs of this band of hens during the year. The price received for eggs ranged from 10 cents to 25 cents per dozen, but some settings were sold ;»t a bet ter price. It will be seen that the average return for the year from these 200 hens was $20.Sr> per month, a very comfortable bit of spending money to come in as an aside general farming operations. One special experiment with 48 white Leghorns in a yard by them selves averaged 17 dozen e...

4 IHPERIAL LANDS. There will be many crops raised in the Imperial Settlements this sea- son that will more than pay, not only for the land, but for the water rights also. This is the verdict of some of the best and most experienced ranchmen now in the Settlements. Look at the crops that can be gathered this season. First a (top of barley, either for hay or grain, and then a crop of sorghum or millet for toed, it is easier to raise two crops on this land in a single season than it. is to raise one crop on the farm lands of lowa or Illinois, and when the crops are gathered, the land is in good con- dition to sow to alfalfa, after which from four to six crops per season can be cut. These lands with water can be had for from $115. fi0 to $l. r >.o() per acre, easy terVS. See about this today. OAKLEY-PAULIN COMPANY, 304 Douglas Bldg., Los Angeles, Cal. IfIPERIAL LANDS.

IRRIGATION BILL ASSLRED A special dispatch from Washington to the Los Angeles Times says: The House Committee OU Irrigation held an all-day session and finally voted to substitute the Senate Hill for the House Irrigation Bill, and amend the Senate bill in three most impor tant particulars. As originally drawn, the House bill, usually known as the compromise com mitte bill, made no reservation of lands to be irrigated, from speculative entry until a contract for construction was let; then and not until then, notice was to be given, after which the lands were to be opened to homestead settle ment only. This defect in the bill was strongly objected to by the National Irrigation Association. It was urged that it would result in the complete failure of the real purpose of the measure, the building of homes by set tlers on reclaimed lauds, because all the lands would be taken up by specu lators and large stock men before small settlers could get a chance. When the bill passed the Senate i...

GRADING OF RAILROAD WAS BEGUN THIS WEEK The first work on the construction of the Imperial and Gulf railroad was begun this week, and will be crowded ahead until the roadbed and bridges are Completed between the Southern Pacific line anil Imperial. W. F. Holt, president of the imperial and Gulf Railroad Company has been in the valley for some days, and on Monday he let the contract to George A. Carter A Co. for grading the road. the work to be done by the cubic yard. Mr. Carter at once set about getting his equipment of mules and graders ready, and on Thursday ground was broken for the new road. It i.s expected to push work on the roadbed and to then put in the bridges which will be required. It is expected that there will be a delay of several mouths in getting ties and rails, so great is the demand for them, and it is not considered probable that the laying of the track will be begun be fore fall.

8 SAN MMiO-l VNIIHN Engineer EL T. Richards, in charge of I lie preliminary survey of the San Diego-Eastern railway evidently de cided to pay no attention to future bus iness for the road in passing through the valley, leaving that to be arranged when it comes to a permanent survey for the road. For the present his main object .seems to be to get across the valley with the least possible mile age, and his party has been at work on a line which passes south of Silsbee north of and Paringa and Calexico. According to this preliminary survey, none of the four towns in the valley will be on the line, while four-fifths of (he irrigable territory will be too re mote from the line to be tributary to a road following that course. This is not* a surprising route for the engineers to ' adopt; ' however", "as preliminary surveys are designed to show the feasibility of a route, and they are ways considered subject to revision as interests may develop when building is begun. This railroad and the...
