VII ROOSEVELT'S PREDICTION NO IRIDESCENT DREAM The President Said That Imperial Valley Land Would Be Worth, At Least' Five Hundred Dollars An Acre, and a Farm Near El Centro Has Been Sold at That Price. Choice agricultural land, unim proved and not within city limits, has reached the $500 an acre mark by bona flde sale In Imperial Valley. President Roosevelt said a little more than a year ago that it would be worth eventually from $500 to $1500 an acre, the value being based upon productive capacity and returns. His lower figure has been realized. tLast July, W. R. Hoppin, of North- Id, Minn., was a tourist to the coast. He came into Imperial Valley to see what the country looked like, and it looked good enough to tempt him to invest in land. He bought a tract of 12 acres, south of El Centro and out side the town limits, for $1770, and L. M. HOLT QUITS SELLS HIS STOCK AND DROPS HIS SUIT AGAINST CALIFOR NIA DEVELOPMENT CO.

TRINITY'S RICHES ENORMOUB ESTATE IN NEW YORK HELD BY GREAT CHURCH CORPORATION. TITLE ACQUIRED BY FRAUD Vast Property Administered Secretly by Professed Followers of Him Who Bade Them to Sell All and Give to the Poor— Attempt to Lift the Veil. • For more than two hundred year 3 Trinity church, New York, has been growing so enormously in wealth that today the value of its real estate holdings in the Metropolis alone is ■estimated as being anywhere from $39,000,000 to $100,000,000. Its cash surplus is colossal; its revenue in rents is only second to that of the Astors. Yet this vast fortune has amassed itself so silently and has been so carefully fostered that even its ori gin is generally forgotten. Who really administers the immense Trinity treasure, how is it done, what of its mysterious growth and history? These, questions have never been satis factorily answered. Charles Edward Russell,, in" the Broadway Magazine, attempts to lift the veil behind which .Trinity Corporation has bec...

WRITTEN IN RED BTORY OF CHRIS EVANS, TRAIN ROBBER AND KILLER, WHO PLEADS FOR PARDON. JOAQUIN MILLER'S MYTHS The Poseur Poet Puts Wings Oivthe Old Villain and Tells Absurdly Un true Tale of His Career of Outlawry to Aid His Release, Lieut.Gov. Warren Porter is said to bo' strongly in favor of pardoning and releasing from prison old Chris Evans, train robber and wholesale murderer, serving a life sentence by mercy of a Jury whose plain duty it was to let him be hanged. Evans has been try ing to get out on parole or pardon for some time, and doing a lot of hypocritical whining and lying to arouso sympathy for a "poor old man, whose errors were of the head, not of the heart," and some persons with more sentimentality than sense are trying to worry the board of pardons into turning him loose. Among these joggle-witted senti mentalists is Joaquin Miller, who has written some good stuff in verse and , a fearful lot^ of rubbish in prose.

After a four-months* tour of South . *»rr, Europe and the Nile Valley, H. .T. ?SVhltley has returned to l,os Angeles with a large stock of information con cerning methods of irrigation and agri culture which he probably will apply to Imperial Valley enterprises.
