PROMISED LAND IS FOUND Some of the Things Seen by An Editor Who Came to Imperial Valley With the Business Men of Los Angeles, Who Believe In Reciprocity. One of the Ix>s Angeles Chamber of Commerce excursionists to Imperial Valley last month was Henry \V. Kruckeberg, editor of the Rural Cali fornian, who wrote for his paper a description of what the excursionists saw in "California's Valley of the Nile." This Is, In part, what editor Kruckeberg wrote: The Land of Promise. The Imperial Valley Is a veritable Island Empire situated in the extreme southern portion of the state, which on first vision makes you think of the great San Joaquin Valley. Level as a billiard table with just enough slope to prevent irrigating water running uphill, it is flanked on two sides with foothills banked by still greater ele vations or mountains. From north to south the sky line settles in the hori zon, giving to the...

BOOM OR BUBBLE Arizona Miner Denounces Dulzura Mining District As Rank Fake. IDulzura's mining oxoltpnipnt ia troat rd by the San Diego papers *aa a veritable boom and by the Los Angc los Times as a crude fake. The San Diego Union asserts that one group of claims has been bonded to San Diego men for $25,000; that four claims have been sold to.lx>s Angeles men for $30,000, although "final pa pers have not yet passed;" that sink ing of shafts is about to begin, and that there Is a genuine stampede of miners into the district. According to The Times, "the news paper boom at Dulzura, thirty-five miles south of San Diego, has gone up, exploded, 'busted,' and there is now nothing left to remind one of the 'might have been' but a bad smell which still pervades the neighborhood of a certain newspaper office in this city, which lent itself to the most puerile and palpable fake of the sea* son."

VALLEY VESUVIUS IN FAKE ERUPTION BRUSH FIRES THE ONLY ACTIVE VOLCANOES KNOWN. Combustion of Gas In Some Editorial Rooms Produces Weird and Won derful Effects, Visible at a Distance of Innumerable Miles From Every where. It may seem too bad to si>oil a harm less sensation, but the frozen fact Is that the story of volcanic eruptions and fireworks in the Imperial Valley below the Mexican line is a fake. The so-called mud volcanoes of that region are only boiling mud springs r few feet in diameter. Some steam issues from crevices In the sides of a low hill near Volcano Lake, and mud cones a few feet high have been thrown up near the lake shore. Neither smoke nor fire issues from the "volcanoes." Last Monday the Imperial Standard, swallowing the fake whole, said: The mud volcanoes located sixty miles south of Calexico in Lower Cali fornia, were in a state of eruption yes terday. Last evening the disturbance amounted to a pyrotechnic display and attracted the attention of a large num b...

CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE " Sharp Criticism of Valley Towm For ' /Failure to Plant Trees. When' the editor of the Review re turned recently from a trip Into the* Imperial Valley, ho made the comment that the people of that valley are neg lecting their greatest opportunity In not planting more street shado trees. It would seem that this would be the first thing they would think of in a section of the country where It is re ported to get at least moderately warm in summer, but apparently the people of the valley are so busy mak ing money that they have not taken time to pay much attention to their own comfort The editor of the Riv erside Press is just back from Imperial Valley and ho too was struck by the lack of shade trees. Read what he "One thing the Imperial Valley needs urgently and that is more trees.' Even in Imperial, the oldest town in the valley, the streets are practically shadeless; and at El Centro hardly a single street tree has yet been planted. That is wicked in a country wh...

BAJA CALIFORNIA MAY NOT BE ACQUIRED BY UNCLE BAM, SAYS STATE DEPART MENT AT WASHINGTON. DIFFICULTIES IN THE WAY Mefclco Would Regard As Unfriendly Act a Proposition by Congress to Buy Peninsula— Treaty. Negotiation Only Possible Way of Approach. Private advices from Washington are to the effect that there are in surmountable difficulties in the way of acquisition by the United States of Lower California, however desirable the annexation of territory geograph ically a part of the Imperial Valley Tegion may be. A Senator, who is strongly in favor of the purchase of Lower California, has discussed the matter several times with the State Department, but the officers of that department are of the opinion that any attempt to pass a bill authorizing purchase would be re garded by Mexico as an unfriendly act. Unless the matter were virtually set- tled by treaty negotiation in advance Of any action by Congress, nothing • could be done without offending Mexi co. Similar views are expressed in...

SALTON SEA LEVEL DOES NOT SUBSIDE WATER FELL BUT TWO INCHES IN THE PAST YEAR. Official Report of Government Hydro grapher Ghows That Inflow Is Suffic ient to Maintain the Sea As a Per manent Body of Water In the Desert. Various statements of the rate of EUbßidence of Salton Sea have been made from time to time, and it has been the generally accepted belief that during the year 1907 OTaporation lowered the level of the sea some two or three feet. Amateur and casual observers have reported a marked fall of water, shown on the gauge, but they seem to have overlooked the effect of winds and to have mistaken varia tions due to wind pressure for actual subsidence of the body of water. Accurate measurements have been made by the hydrographic branch of the U. S. Geological Survey, and the following report has bqen issued by W. B. Clapp, District Engineer and Hydrographer, which shows that no material change of level occurred dur ing the year. Date Rise in Elevation be- Max. 1907 feet low se...
