Imperial Press. VOL 11. The following is said to be one of the finest battle poems ever produced by an American. Its author was J. W. Watson, of New York, who, it was claimed by a New Orleans lady, was the author of "Beautiful Snow." Keep your arms ready! God only knows ivhom we may meet here. Don't let me be taken, I'd rather awaken-, Tomorrow, in — no matter where, - .•>,. .. "Than lie in that foul prisoii'tiolc over there. Stoop slowly!. Speak loidy! These rocks may have life, Lay me down in this hollozv ; We are out of the strife. By heavens! the foeman may track me in blood! No! no surgeon for me — he can give me no aid; The surgeon I want is the pick-axe and spade. What, Morris, a tear? Why, shame on ye, man! I thought you a hero, but since you've began To whimper and cry like a girl in her teens, By George! I don't knoiv what the devil it means. Well! well!

2 A LITTLE RAILROAD TALK. A. B. HOTCHKISS, FOR MANY YEARS AN ATTORNEY FOR THE SOUTHERN PACIFIC, TALKS A LITTLE IN HIS PUBLIC ECON OMY MONTHLY. Probably no mnn outside of the head officials of the Southern Pacific Company knows just what that great corporation will do in the future re garding railroad building, but the fol lowing statements by one who is in position to draw intelligent conclu sions is interesting matter just at the present time. Public Economy is a monthly edited and published by A. B. Hotchkiss. In his last issue Mr. Hotchkiss says: " The editor of Public Economy ad vised the people of San Diego that in his opinion Harriman was the man for them to deal with in their under taking to build the desert road to Yuma and he wrote to ex-Mayor D. C Reed to bring Mayor Frary and ex- Mayor Carlson to Los Angeles to see Harriman and invite him to San Diego to look over the surveys of the new San Diego-Eastern, and generally to confer for the good of San Diego. The evening that...

Imperial. The Colorado desert, as viewed from the railroad, is one of the most forbidding tracts of drifting sand and worthless landscape to be found in America. And yet a few miles south from Old Beach, or Imperial Junction, is to be found the edge of a vast tract of as fertile soil as the sun ever shone upon. This 'whole desert country lies be low the sea level, from Indio on the northwest to the International Boun dary Line at Calexico, a distance of about one hundred miles, with a width of from twenty to thirty miles. The Southern Pacific Company is constructing a branch line from Old Beach to Imperial, a distance of thirty miles, and cars are to be running to that town by September 1, 1902. Imperial is destined to become the commercial center of the largest irri gated tract of land under one ir rigation system to be found in Amer ica — 500,000 acres in the United States and 300,000 in Lower Califor nia. The California Development Com pany is the owner of this Imperial Canal Sys...

THE RAILROAD SITUATION IS VERY ENCOURAGING TIES AND RAILS WILL BEGIN TO ARRIVE AT OLD BEACH WITHIN TWO WEEKS FROM TEXAS There is a most encouraging railroad situation now, indicating that the Im perial and Gulf road will be in opera tion by September 1, according to con tract between that road and the South ern Pacific company. Engineer Hood of the latter company visited the val ley this week, and is engaged in ex amining the sites for bridges, it being the plan to bring the roadbed up to the standard of the main line of the Southern Pacific. As long as it was the idea to have simply a spur of the Southern Pacific road run into the valley, it was not necessary to make a strictly first-class roadbed, but now that it seems evident that the road is to be used in time as the main line of the Southern Pacific the situation is different. PRESIDENT HEBER TALKS The Los Angeles Herald says: "President A. H. Heber of the Im perial Land Company was here yester day from San Francisco, where he ...

FARMERS ASSUME CONTROL OF IRRIGATION SYSTEM IMPERIAL WATER COMPANY NO, I TAKES CHARGE OF THE DISTRIBUTION OF WATER An importand step was taken this week in the development of the valley, the system of canals and ditches under Imperial Water Company No. 1, cov ering- 100,000 acres, being accepted by that company as far as completed. Thomas Beach, appointed superinten dent of the system a few days since, came to Imperial Wednesday and as sumed his new duties. Heretofore the system has not had the management which was needed, fur the reason that there was no one in authority to conduct its affairs for ir rigation purposes as they needed. The California Development Company, which constructed the system, was not organized to distribute the water among the individual farmers and its authority was limited in that respect. Fishing at Old Beach Old Beach, as everybody here knows, is a station on the Southern Pacific railroad in one of the most forlorn sec tions of the desert, getting its nam...

8 SAN DIEGO WATER New System for Irrigation and Do mestic Supply Reference has been made several tiiiiss in the Press to the great work in hand for getting water to San Diego for irrigation and domestic use. This is probably the most important irrigation enterprise being worked out in the State, aside from the Imperial system, and its completion will give to San Diego an impetus which it has never known. Regarding this work the San Diegau-Sun says: "From deeds which have recently been filed and other information which has just been obtained by the Sun, it appears practically certain that an other summer will see the people of San Diego buying water from the Southern California Mountain Water company at 4 cents the 1000 gallons instead of pumping the same from the sands of Mission valley at an expense of 6 cents or buying it from the Hume at 5 cents the 1000 gallons. Of course all this may not come about, but if it is not accomplished Mr. Babcock will be a very much disappointed man,...

The Culture of Alfalfa. T. L. Lyon of the Nebraska Experi ment Station gives some valuable in formation relative to the culture of alfalfa which is suited to the Western States, and as there are many sugges tions in the article which are applicable to all countries, we reproduce the sug gestions in full so that our readers may be benefitted by whatever is found therein suited to their wants: During the winter of 1901-2 a list of between 600 and 700 successful alfalfa raisers in this State was collected, and to each was sent a report blank calling for a definite statement re garding a number of the processes he employed in obtaining his stand of alfalfa, and also regarding his sub sequent care of the crop. More than five hundred satisfactory replies were received, representing eighty counties in the State. A study of this large number of reports from successful alfalfa raisers gives some valuable in formation respecting alfalfa culture. There were 288 stand reported upon upland, and ...

10 To Develop California. Last week we published an epitome of twelve recommendations made by Wm. H. Mills regarding the question of how to develop the State, and on those twelve rules the Press com mented at length. We herewith pub lish in full the twelve points made by Mr. Mills as they are worthy of careful perusal. They are as follows: 1. Ascertain definitely, by serious investigation, what the natural and commercial advantages of your dis tricts are; what industries can bo pursued with profit. A district ought to be devoted com mercially to that one species of fruit which can be best produced, and if the district or neighborhood becomes noted for the production of a super ior article of that one particular fruit, buyers will go there in preference to anywhere else if large quantities can be had. There is a district in Yuba county where they raise peaches and nothing else, and they have all be come rich in raising them. There is another district where they raise grapes, of the T...

Imperial Press. VOL. 11. Not Eligible. An editorial writer on the Redlands Review wrote a personal letter to Ed. Leake of the Woodland Democrat, asking him if he would be a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Governor, and his reply is printed in that' paper. After saying • that the many notices in the papers had been without' his knowledge, he says: "The instances are very exceptional in which an editor has been an avail able candidate for a high official posi tion conferred by popular suffrage. He is expected to have a positive opinion on all public questions. If he does his duty to the public he gives expression to these opinions and they become a matter of public record, ie is his business to write things, and he is wise beyond his generation if, during the course of a long journalistic ca- reer, he does not make mistakes. The wise things he writes and the good deeds he performs are soon forgotten, but the enemies he makes in the dis charge of a public duty never allow h...

AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS In outlining "Our Industrial Posi tion in the World" in the Forum, Henry Gannett says: "Summing up,it appears that of the entire agricultural product of the world the United States produces 23 per cent. — a little less than one-fourth; while Russia produces lSper cent., and Germany and France 12percent. each. This proportion of the agricultural product of the earth which is contrib uted by the United States, enormous when contrasted with her population and era, is further emphasized by the fact that for every man here engaged in agriculture a product valued at $900 is contributed, while the average Frenchman produces but $580, and the average German but $510, in agricul tural products. In other words, the average American farmer produces about 50 per cent, more than the cit izen of any other nationality. This is due primarily to the fact that the farms of the United States have larger areas. The average farmer of this country cultivates 44 acres, while the Fren...

EFFECT OF RAILROAD An additional force of men is being engaged to work on the Southern Pa cific grade from Old Beach to Imperial, with a view to rushing work ahead to completion as soon as possible. It is but three months before the date set for the operation of trains over the road, and naturally things must move rapidly up to that date. It already seems apparent that there is a material improvement in the bus iness at Imperial since the announce ment that the Southern Pacific Com pany would build into town by Sep tember 1. Many inquiries are being made, and a good many people are coming in, despite the advent of warm weather. There is general expecta tion that the completion of the road to town will lead to something of a rush for property, and property owners are generally holding firm in the expecta tion of an advance in values with the completion of the road. This is par ticularly the case with town lots. Two inside lots were sold a few days since for $500 which were bought of ...

8 CONGRESSIONAL OUTBREAK The dictatorial steering committee in Congress was again forced to sub mit to the will of the majority last week and programmed the irrigation bill for discussion. Before the surren der of the dictators the San Francisco Chronicle gave them this broadside: It is said that a new rebellion is im pending in the House of Representa tives, and this time against the ty ranny of the Committee on Rules. It is on the question of considering the irrigation bill, and it is stated very strongly that this time the rebels are in the majority, besides being backed by the President, and that they will either compel the Committee on Rules to report a rule for considering the ir rigation bill or smash the committee's slate and take up the irrigation bill over their heads. It may be well if the matter takes the latter course. It is quite time that the little oligarchy which dictates, not merely legislation in Congress, but what legislation shall even be consid ered, was comple...
