FIRST ORANGE ORCHARD IN THE IMPERIAL COUNTRY [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 25 May 1901
FIRST ORANGE ORCHARD IN THE IMPERIAL COUNTRY All doubting Thomases as to th 2 fertility of the soil of the Imperial country may see visible evidences that would make the most skeptical enthusiastic by visiting that part of the country about Blue lake, eight miles southwest of town. Mr. George Laurence and Mr. Storms were here from the lake last Saturday, and to the question "what is there growing at Blue lake," Mr. Laurence replied "Mr. Vanderpoel has four or five hundred orange trees, and we also have near a thousand pepper trees, a number of blackberry vines and some garden truck, all doing well. Orange trees, which were set-out— without a twig on them, had limbs two inches in length, by actual measurment, in ten days after planting." Mr. Storms said he never saw blackberry vines thrive in any country as those planted there. Mr. Laurence is an old-timer in this country, having been on the desert for the past ten years. He also told of a cotton stalk on the desert in Lower Californ...
WATER IN IMPERIAL CANAL [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 25 May 1901
WATER IN IMPERIAL CANAL On Tuesday, the 14th, a full head of water was turned from the Colorado river into the mommoth Imperial canal. The water now flows in a large body down the channel of the Salton river, and with the large force of men and teams now at work on the ditches between here and Cameron lake, where the water will be taken from the Salton channel, it will be a matter of only a few more days and the water will be flowing in and around Imperial, when all who are skeptical of the successful future of this great enterprise may see visible evidences that will make them the most enthusiastic.
CARLSON'S RAILROAD [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 25 May 1901
CARLSON'S RAILROAD From San Diego to Yuma via Imperial Will be Built If the People of San Diego Want it and Carlson Has the Money With Which to Build it W. H. Carlson, ex-mayor of San Diego, has been trying to build a railroad from San Diego to Yuma, the Colorado desert through what is now the Imperial settlement, since 1888. He now definitely announces, through telegram from New York to Mayor Frary at San Diego, that he has completed all arrangements, and will in reality build the road, and will build it at once, provided the city council of San Diego will make good his franchise on the bay front. According to current press reports, it has now developed that the Southern Pacific company is back of Mr. Carlson, hence the road is practically a certainty if Carlson gets what he wants in the way of franchises. While it is perfectly right and proper that the council should exercise good judgement and sound business sense in this matter, the fact remains none the less true that everybody...
IMPERIAL PROGRESS [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 25 May 1901
IMPERIAL PROGRESS The new town of Imperial, in what has been miscalled the desert, has sprung into existence with most of the appurtenances of an up-to-date city, and what it now lacks it is soon to have. It has a weekly newspaper, telephone line, justice's court., a hotel appropriately named the Diadem, a postoffice and the material for a church including the minister and his salary. The enterprise that has done all this cannot be too highly commended, and as an appreciation of its excellent showing, the county should give Imperial all it asks, including the best stage road in the state. — San Diego Union. A railroad might easily have been added, for including it the county would not be giving Imperial an equivalent to what the enterprise at the back of Imperial will give the county. The benefits to be reaped from the Imperial country by San Diego wili go into the millions more than once.
MISSION INDIANS OISTED [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 25 May 1901
MISSION INDIANS OISTED Their Title, to Land Under Mexican Grant Invalid A Washington dispatch says that in the cases of Barker and Quevas vs. Harvey, the United States Supreme Court has passed upon the rights of the California Misson Indians to hold land upon which they have lived when their claims are in conflict with those of persons claiming unconfirmed Mexican land grants. Harvey, as an administrator, claimed title under a grant in San Diego county, confirmed in 1880, and brought suit to establish the status of Barker, Quevas and other Indians who claimed to have been on the land long prior to the making of the grants in 1880. The California Supreme Court decided that the Indians had no standing in view of the recognition by the government of the validity of the Mexican grant, and that decision was confirmed by this opion. Mrs. Nation, the hatchet slinger, is now setting up a plea of insanity — which no one doubts With this issue the Press is six weeks old, and it is read in Was...
BIG GOLD DREDGER [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 25 May 1901
BIG GOLD DREDGER Extensive Placer Operations on the the Colorado River Above Yuma The rapid and extensive rise which has taken place in the Colorado river within the last two weeks has relieved the big gold dredger of the Advance company, which has suffered an enforced idleness of several months on account of the low stage of the river that has prevailed ever since the machine reached the Potholes, says the Yuma Sun. A big sand bar intervened to prevent the machine from reaching the gold bearing gravel banks it is proposed to dredge. The work of getting through this obstruction progressed slowly, however, until the last big fall, which left the dredger high and dry. Then there was nothing for it but to wait for high water. That has arrived, and operations will soon begin. The mammoth dredger — one of the largest ever built in the United States — is a model gold saving machine, while the scenes of its oporations is one of the richest placer sections ever discovered anywhere — a fact ...

GOOD ROAD COMMITTEE HERE [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 25 May 1901
GOOD ROAD COMMITTEE HERE Committee of San Diego Citizens Now Exclaiming at This Wonderful Imperial Country The committee of citizeus who left San Diego Tuesday afternoon for this country are now on what they had been told was the Colorado desert, but not a single man of the twentytwo who made the trip can today be heard referring to this country as a desert. But instead, you hear from all sides exclamations of "a new Damascus to rise under our unclouded southwestern sky of the twentieth century, fairer than that in the Syrian desert, a Damascus instinct with the life of a new time and blessed with American liberty." The party received a warm reception in our little new city. The trip was made by wagon and for the purpose of investigating the roads between San Diego and this place, and deciding upon which of the two routes — Campo and Julian — can be converted into a first-class stage road with the least money and work. The trip out was made by way of Julian and the return will be ma...
TO KILL PRESIDENT McKINLEY [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 25 May 1901
TO KILL PRESIDENT McKINLEY Dastardly Plot Inearthed in Chinese Quarter in San Erancisco (ireat excitement prevailed among the members of the president's party in San Francisco last Saturday over a discovery by the secret service men of a dozen sticks of dynamite and some electeic apparatus in the cellar of a house iv Chinese quarter which had been selected by the Chinese merchants for a reception to the president. The position of the dynamite and the manner in which wires were placed seemed to indicste a plot to assassinate the president. The practice of the secret service men has been to quietly and carefully search every house in which the president expected to stop. The condition of Mrs. McKinley's health is improved, and it is now thought she will recover. George C. Hunt arrived here from Los Angeles yesterday. Mr. Hunt is one of the heavy stockholders in the California Development company and also has a large block of land here.

Catlap of TnlloyrnniTu l.ninrnrin, The cnuß? of 'In I ley rand's lameness baa long liecu n matter of dispute. Borne stories hnve It thnt the defect was con&gt;;enlinl: others thnt It wns occasioned l iy nn accident which befell him In his Infancy. The most curious explanation or all Is thnt offered by a writer In The Quarterly Review. "To quote the very words of our Informant, an eminently distinguished diplomat." says the writer. "Talleyrand's Vienna colleague, nnron Wewwnlwrg. told me years ago thnt his lameness was owing to carelessuess of bis nurse, who laid him down In n field while she flirted with her sweetuenrt and on coming back to her charge found some pigs dining on the Infant's legs. 1 am sure thnt Wesßenberg told me this as nn established fact, nnrt I am all but sure that his authority was Talleyrand himself."
They Mixed. [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 25 May 1901
They Mixed. When Lord Beauchamp, the British governor of New South Wales, first occupied the government house at Sydney, ho ordained that at official receptions only guests of a certain rank should be permitted to approach the presence through designated doors. To these bine tickets were awarded; to others of inferior mold, white. At one function, through some mismanagement, an important public man received a blue card, while a white one was sent to bis wife. When the pair reached the audience chamber, the lady declined to b«; separated from her husband or to abandon the aristocratic blue ranks. An aid-de-camp endeavored to reason with her and explain the commotion that would ensue if bhu« and white were suffered to mingle together. But the fair one was equal to the occasion. "Nonsense." said she as she pressed forward. "What do yon take us for--a seidlitz powder?" The aid collapsed.

How I'lie.v Trenlitl Wnalilnfflon. As an example of the progress of medicine during the last century The Medical. Record cites the case of Washington's last illness. He died of laryngeal diphtheria, and the treatment was. it would seem, for nn old man sick with a disease, very exhausting to the vitality. It consisted in the abstraction of between two and three quarts of blood, the administration of about 20 grains of calomel and 6 grains of tartar emetic and an Injection, with external application of blister. And yet so strong was Washington's constitution that lie survived this treatment for 24 hours.

Tipping the Butcher. [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 25 May 1901
Tipping the Butcher. Did you ever buy your own steaks and get the worst in the shop nearly every time? An old friend has had that misfortune, and he Is always willIng to pay two or three cents more a pound than any other customer. Having listened calmly to his tale of woe, I inquired if he had acquired the practice of tipping the butcher. Tipping the butcher? No! He thought It was a sufficient tip to offer the two or three cents more a pound. "That offer." I tried to explain, "goes to the proprietor direct, or his block man thinks .yon are trying to make n thief of him b.\ Ind in- ing him to hold ■nit for himself the extra price. It will never work. •Must say to your cutter: 'Fee here, old chap. I've been dissatisfied with my steaks for some time. Come out ami take a drink, and tell me bow to 3c!eet good meat.' He's too busy.

Heroes nnd Comtrda. [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 25 May 1901
Heroes nnd Comtrda. Courage Is iki uncertain quantity; It varies with tlrouuisltUici'B. A man who fancies that he is nfrnld of nothing ventures on the slippery pavement' ln winter and suddenly discovers that be Is very much afraid of falling and hurting himself. It Is on record thnt n mn:i who was as bold as could be In the morning could never be relied upon for courage after dinner. Some French soldiers, during the war of IS7O. gallantly assaulted an almost impregnable position, although death seemed certain. Three years later two of those gallant fellows were In a theater when nn alarm of fire wus given, and they displayed extreme cowardice, pushing over women and children tn their frantic efforts to escape.— Pearson's Weekly. **»- /
