Imperial freight. The San Diego Sun publishes an interview with W. F. Holt, president of the First National Bank of Impe rial, in which appears the following: "W. F. Holt, president of the First National Bank of Imperial, and one of the heavy men of the Imperial Land Company, is in town today. Mr. Holt is very enthusiastic as usual over the Imperial country, and de clares that many fields of barley, wheat and oats there will astonish even the natives, to say nothing of the balance of the world. <A good deal of grain has been cut, but owing to an entire lack of transportation facilities, none of it will be threshed this year, and all of it will be stacked for hay. Mr. Holt says that the large number of horses and mules in the valley, and the constantly increasing number of cattle will furnish a steady demand for nearly if not quite all the hay that is being raised this season. "Some of the stories he tells of the appearances of the grain fields in that delta country almost surpass...

10 Terrible Earthquakes. Martinique was only one in a long list of similar catastrophes. This was not the first — it will not be the last. History! abounds with instances of appalling calamities by earthquakes and volcanoes. Since the destruction of Pompeii down to the latest cata clysm in the West Indies, there have been a multitude of these fearful out bursts. That at Lisbon, which de stroyed about GO.OOO people and wrecked one of the most solidly built capitals in Europe, was the work of less than five seconds, and was the most totally destructive of property of which we have any record. Among others that exceed it in tremendous force was the eruption in the Straits of Sunda, in 1883, which broke out first from the volcano of Kaikaaoa, continued until no less than 45 craters in Java were in full blast, and liter ally shattered and sunk mountains and islands. Dust from this eruption for three years afterwards fell in Australia and other countries thous ands of miles away, and for ...

Imperial Press. VOL. 11. PILLSBURY'S PESSIMISTIC PUZZLING PROBLEM The San Joaquin Valley Editor makes Statements Re= garding the Development of California that are not Borne out by the Facts, His State= ments and Comments Thereon. A. J. Pillsbury, of the Tulare Regis ter, one of the brightest and ablest writers in this State, recently read a paper before the San Joaquin Val ley Commercial Association that con tained from a San Joaquin Valley point of view some very plain state ments that are probably true —he ought to know — but in treating the subject in a general way he misleads the general reader by stating for facts propositions that cannot be veri fied. We publish the following extract from! his paper for the purpose of presenting the case fairly to our readers and for the further purpose of making such comments thereon as we think justified and then leav ing the reader to draw his own con clusions. Mr. Pillsbury- introduced his paper with the following state ments: It is no sm...

2 as to draw off the surplus water and then pray for rain so as to have enough moisture on his uplands to save his crops? And were his pray ers always answered? This Is a brief sketch of the work done east of the Missouri River. Now, bow about It In California?— say Southern California— for we desire tc speak Intelligently? Thirty years ago this Southern country only had, in round numbers, a population of 30,000. Today there are 400,000 in this same territory. The wealth has increased more rapidly than has the population. Then the average man was poor; to day the average man is well-to-do, and many of them are wealthy. What does it cost him to make a ranch? That depends on circum stances, but as a rule it costs much less than it is worth after it is made. East of the Missouri River it has cost many times more than it was worth after it was made. How long does it take him to make a ranch? From one to five years. East of the Missouri River it usually cost a lifetime of hard work; and ...

Headed for Imperial and the Coast. The Los Angeles Herald thus reviews the railroad situation so far as the Rock Island is concerned: In New York and Chicago railroad men and newspapers persist in reitera tion of the statement that the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad will come to the Pacific Coast from El Paso, Tex., a statement which, while not confirmed, is not denied by of ficials of the road. The report Is based on the new aggressive policy or the Rock Island cpmpany and the In formation given out from President Leeds' office that further expansion Is contemplated. During the past year the Rock Island has added something between 1600 and 1700 miles to its road, and has made known that it In tends to construct more. With the new mileage it has completed connec tions with the Pacific Coast and the City of Mexico, the latter by a" joint trackage agreement with the Mexican Central. It also now reaches Memphis and is building to Galveston, with Al buquerque as another possi...

PROMINENT LOS ANGELES MEN SECURE LARGE HOLDINGS The most important land and water gale in the history of the valley is be ing consummated. Its importance lies in the magnitude of the deal and in the character of men who are be coming interested in the valley. The selling price is about $100,000, while the men who are purchasing land and water are among the most prominent capitalists of Los Angeles, their in tention being to engage in the cattle business on a large scale. For some months representatives of the Los Angeles capitalists alluded to have been investigating the lands on both sides of the international line and have bought of the California De velopment Company 10,000 acres just south of the line in Mexico and 3500 acres in the United States just north of the line. Through arrangement with the California Development Company the purchasers will put in their own irrigation distributing sys tem. Among the members of the syndi cate are Maj.-Gen.

PROJECTED ENTERPRISE McCORMICK HARVESTER PEOPLE MAY PUT IN CORDAGE MILLS Imperial is in a fair way to secure a very important enterprise. This is the growing of sisal hemp on a large scale and its manufacture here into twine by the McCormick harvester people. Each one of the large manufacturers of harvesting machinery maintains extensive cordage mills, the difficulty in getting a steady supply of binding twine by the farmers having forced the manufacturers of self-binding machines to make a supply certain for the users of the machine. In follow ing the search fur supplies of the raw material the McCormick people a few years since established larire factories on the Pacific Coast of Lower Califor nia. They had discovered that hemp was indigenous to that country, and they began to utilize the wild product. Now the same company has not been slow to discover that the hemp grows extensively on the over flow lands on the Colorado delta, on the Mexican side of the line, but a few miles fro...

8 THE EASTSIDE TROUBLES HAVE BEEN ADJUSTED Eastsiilc isoncc more entirely serene, the differences between the Sunset Commercial Company and the Cali fornia Development Company having been adjusted out of court on a basis satisfactory to all parties. As a result, the latter company is now free. to crowd ahead work east of the Carter river. Thus is removed the last element of discord in the valley, the managers of the companies colonizing the valley having followed a policy of pacifica tion between conflicting ; interests which has established peace and har mony. The Sunset Commercial Company was organized about a year and a half ago to colonize the Imperial valley east of Carter river and to construct the irrigation system for those lands, under contract with the California De velopment Company. About IS.OOO acres of the land were fi led on, but no thing was done bytlie Sunset company in the construction of the system, a disagreement growing up between the contracting 1 companies. Th...

THE PETRIFIED FOREST. One of Arizona's Most famous Nat ural Wonders. The passage, in the lower house of Congress a few days ago, of a bill set ting aside as a national park the great petrified forest of northern Arizona came just in time to save from de struction a wonderful natural curios ity which has but one equal on this continent — that, the Grand Canyon of the Colorado. In the Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, in California and northern Mexico, as well as in other portions of Arizona, have been found petrified trees, but none of them are to be com pared to the immense fossilized forest which lies close to Holbrook, where the government protectorate is to be established. The forest is in the midst of the great desert of Apache. Fifty miles to the northeast is the great Navajo In dian reservation; some eighty-five miles to the northwest is the Grand Canyon of the Colorado, and interven- ingi are several ancient Moki pueblos perched on their tablelands or mesas of stone.

10 The largest tree, which must have been a very king of its race, stands on the summit of a sun-baked, desolate foot hill. It is twenty-six and one-half feet In circumference and fourteen feet In height, with roots imbedded In the solid rock. Almost all of these trees are perfectly preserved, even to the bark, which in some cases is five inches thick. In the racks all about the trees are impressions of branches, leaves and even cones and fruits that must have belonged to them. The trees with the thick bark were conifers like the se quoias, or "big" trees of California, and quite likely were their direct an cestors. Others were like our common trees — that is, such trees as oaks, chestnuts, beeches, elms, maples and magnolias. The only living trees found in the vicinity of the fossil forests are pines and spruces and two kinds of cottonwood. — L. H. Hamilton in Phoe nix Republican. E. H. Harriman Talks. E. H.

Imperial Press AND FARMER. VOL. 11. DEVELOPMENT OF THE COLORADO DELTA. RELIABLE INFORMATION AND SOUND ADVICE GIVEN BY A SAN DIEGO BUSINESS MAN. The San Diego Sun publishes an in- , terview with a business man who is interested in the Imperial Settlements which is well worth reading: A San Diegan-Sun reporter called this morning upon a well known busi ness man who has made frequent trips to the New River section of the coun try, and who has cons-derable interests there, and asked him to give some information regarding the country and its prospects. His reply was: "In the first place, I do not believe the citizens of San Diego fully appre ciate the importance of the eastern part of our county, and are not awake to its possibilities.

2 Which is it? Quail or Quails? The California Cultivator gives the following very complimentary notice of the pamphlet recently put forth by the Imperial Land Company, entitled, "From Desert to Garden:" "From Desert to Garden — from Worth lessness to Wealth," is the fetching title of an interesting little pamphlet published by L. M. Holt for the Im perial Land Company. It tells, and does it well, of the wonders of the reclaimed desert(?) lands of the Colo rado delta. The only fault to find is that Brother Holt will speak of quails — see last page of the booklet The only question raised in that last sentence is as to whether the plural of "quail" should be written with or without an "s." The author of "From Desert to Gar den" is always very grateful for mer ited criticisms, but the critic should always be sure of his footing before standing a man up for inspection. We have tried to get at the bottom of this quail business. We are willing to take quail in almost any way — with or wit...
