FRAUD CHARGES FICTITIOUS Imperial Valley Investigation to Be Closed by Government. Tracy C. Tteeker, special assistant to Atty.-Oon. Bonaparte, is In 1.C3 Anpelps. While the principal Objet't of Becker's visit, says The Time*, is to appear for the government on *\\ tradition proceedings against local men, alleged to be implicated in the Oregon land frauds, it is understood that he will take a nand in the in- Testlgatlon of rebates, and will also close the Imperial Valley latid-frHtld investigation. Supposed irregularities in obtaining title to portions of the Imperial dis trict have been looked into by the Commissioner of the General I .and Office, and, according to reports from Washington, little dishonesty was dis covered.

GRAPE CUTTINGS "PERSONAL EFFECTS" PARKYNB ATTEMPTS TO SMUG GLE VINES INTO COUNTY. Box Was Falsely Marked, But Par kyns Pleads Ignorance of the Law and Secures Remission of Fine In Absence of District Attorney. The ordinances of Imperial County prohibit the importation of grape cut tings from points in California north of Tehachcpl, na a precaution against the introduction of phylloxera. O. A. Parkyns violated the law last week, and was arrested on complaint of Horticultural Commissioner Wilsie. The story of the case sent out from Holtville made a farce' of the matter and represented Mr. Parkyns as mak ing a vain search for the court and the officers in order that he might plead guilty of unintentional breach of the ordinance. The facts, as related by Commis sioner Wilsie, are somewhat different. The cuttings of purple Damascus vines were billed to O. A. Parkyns by C. M. Reynolds from San Francisco as "one box of plan ts," but the box was marked "Household goods. Personal effects." T...

IRRIGATION ENGINEER TAIT'S REPORT ON IMPERIAL VALLEY Extracts From the Document Which Was Pigeon- Holed By Incredulous Clerks of Agriculture De partment and Dragged to Light by Senator Flint. The report on "Irrigation in Imperial Valley," made by Irrigation Engineer C. B. Tait to the Department of Agri culture a year ago, and pigeon-holed because it was so different from the notorious "alkali report" that some arm-chair farmer could not believe It, has been printed as a Senate docu ment, thanks to Senator Flint. A copy of the report was sent by Senator Flint to The Press. It is a document of 5G pagbsi, containing de scriptions of, the valley, the Colorado river, the irrigation system, methods of preparing land and using water, in .formation on soil, climate and pro ducts and the organization of water companies, and a brief history of the river's invasion of the valley. It is a plain report by an engineer, and not in any sense or particular a "boom" for anything or anybody. * Enginee...
