THE DELTA LANDS Editor Williams Tells it as it Was Revealed to Him California's Desert Land— lts Burning Acres to be Watered Editor J. D. Williams of the Whittier Register, who recently visited this section of the country, is enthusiastic over the possibilities of the Imperial country. The following is in part what he says of the couutry and work being done to reclaim it: None have crossed the Colorado River upon entering California, without noting particularly its turbid torrent, which rushes in nvghty vo'.nmeto the sea; and their interest in this wonderful stream will be quickened by a glance at the work it has wrougnt in the economy of nature, in adding millions of acres to the area of earth's tillable soil. Our recent examination of a large portion of these lands, in company with other newspaper men who went on an excursion for this purpose, may enable us to give something of interest concerning them.

Fatal Dispute Between Mining Engineers [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 18 May 1901

Fatal Dispute Between Mining Engineers PRESCOTT, Ariz.— J. W. Yoho, a mechanical engineer at the Empire mine, on the Groom creek, eight miles south of Prescott, was shot and Instantly killed by another engineer, named McAllister. Yoho had become obnoxious to the men employed at the mine, and, the manager anticipating trouble, discharged him yesterday. Yoho seemed to blame McAllister for getting the miners down on him, and for getting him discharged. He called at McAllister's room and asked him to go down the gulch vith him and fight it out. McAllister declined, and, after abusing him, Yoho pulled a revolver at him, but missed his aim. Just as he fired a second shot, McAllister fired also, the ball from McAllister's revolver taking effect in Yoho's chest, resulting in almost instantaneous death. A coroner's jury rendered a verdict of justifiable homicide. Yoho was a married man and leaves a family.

So popular is black walnut for furniture in England and France that agents buy even old barn timbers r.nd fence rails. One of the few walnut groves left in Ohio was recently sold for export as lumber. The largest tree, eight feet in diameter at the stump, brought twelve hundred dollars.
