Imperial Valley Press. VOL. VI SAFE, STRONG, SOLVENT Imperial Valley Banks all in Splendid Condi tion and their business showing steady Valley Finances in the Best of Condition, Bank Deposits Rapidly In creasing and Investment of Outside Capital Going Steadily On *■ The condition of the banks In ' any community is an almost invariable test of the prosperity or adversity of that community. If the business of the country Is lagging the banks will show It, and If the farmers of an agricultur al community are not prospe-ous, the condition of the banks in that commun ity will reflect that fact. These are self-evident truisms, and conversely, if the business of a country Is good and brisk and the farmers are prosperous, the banks will show it forth In abundant deposits and increasing business.' We know of no fairer way to judge of the general prosperity of any community than by a reference to the condition ] of the banking institutions of that com i rnunlty. And judged by this criterion, ...

Imperial Valley Press. VOL. VI OUR WATER RIGHTS The action of the General Land Of fice In rejecting final proofs on lands In this Valley on account of an Insufficient showing of ownership of water rights by the claimants has given rise to considerable alarm and much discus sion among those Interested. The rulings were generally such as to leave the claimant much In the dark as to just where he does stand. The fact that the land office recognizes the right of the entryman to mortgage his entry before final proof, and protects the mortgagee In such cases by refus ing to permit the entrymen to even re linquish his land back to the govern ment, unless the mortgage Is satisfied, caused many to feel that the ruling could not be taken on the. ground that the water stock was not fully paid for, and therefore must go to the root of the water right Itself. The following ruling In the case of the final proof of Felix G. Havens, assignee of I. W. Gleason, is a case in point; Washington, D. C, M...

The series of investigations con ducted by the California state engineer ing office from 1885 to 1800, wbilediiect ed pnncipally.toward a study of over flow conditions, afforded valuable in formation and attracted considerable Attention to the. great and diversified possibilities of the valley.
