LEGISLATURE RELAXES Following the final passage . of the land bill on Tuesday, both branches of the legisla ture gave themselves over to relaxation, says the Republi can. The house put in a full day without the complete ac complishment of anything. It went into the committee of the whole for the purpose of considering a half dozen measures on the calendar but only one of them was consid ered, the senate bill for the amendment of the semi-annual tax payment law passed in the regular session. The proposed amendment con sists only of a change in the time of the year when the semi-annual taxes fall due. Under the law as it now stands, the first payment is not due until some time after the taxes are needed for the schools and it was therefore, proposed to change the dates to the first Monday in No vember and the first Monday of May. The judiciary committee, to which the bill had been re ferred, reported -it out with a house bill of the same tenor and along with it were several amendments...

COL FLY GIVES The deeper you dig into the official records of the local reclamation service, the more you will learn. True, you will have to do a good deal of fine guessing, and surmising, and wondering, what this or that particular item means, what it cost, and of how much value it has been to the Yuma proj ect; but it is an interesting study, nevertheless. The rec ords now before the Exami ner particularly refer to 1914 '15, and 1915-'16, but these records purport to give the entire cost of the Yuma proj ect up to last year, with esti mated cost for the fiscal year of 1916. How many of you unit holders and water users have ever gone to the trouble to as certain what the local recla mation service has on hand to show for the millions and millions of dollars" it has spent? Now, don't all rise at the same time to answer. Go on there now; hands up! Let's see how many of you really know. Not a hand is raised! Each one has left it to the other and so on, until, well, what's everybody's ...

EXAMINER REPORTER INTERVIEWS MANAGER (From Examiner July 1) Oh but what a gold mine of information one finds in the printed official docu ments relating to the Yuma project. Take yesterday's issue of the Examiner, for instance, and you will see that former Project Manager Sellew's an nual report shows that up to June. .30, 1914, "Operation and maintenance during con struction" had cost $412,853, 74. Now pick up "Part 1, Hearings before the Commit tee on Irrigation of Arid Lands" 63rd Congress, 3rd Session, Dec. 16, 17, 18 and 21, 1914, and you will find on page 17, that Mr. Wm. A. Ryan, comptroller of the re clamation service, testified that "the total cost pf opera tion and maintenance (Yuma project) to June 30, 1914, amounted to not merely $412,853,74, but $610,239.63 showing a discrepancy be tween these two reports of ,$197,385,63, or quite enough to keep several families in ice .cold water-melons during an entire season.

1 LET'S LIFT $2,000,000 F Ylli FARMERS SHOULDERS Yuma project affairs are becoming intensely interest ing, as is plainly to be seen by the letter from the local "acting manager" to the ed itor of the Examiner, given a prominent place in this paper yesterday. The letter itseli bears out exactly what Chair man Mead said, and that is that the "book accounts" will be placed in the hands of the local board of cost review. The local "acting man ager," however, is laboring under a very erroneous hal lucination when he attempts to assume that the Examiner is trying to create local preju dice against the local Recla mation Service for the Ex aminer is trying to do no such thing. Legitimate news items and legitimate criticism, touching the affairs of the Yuma proj ect, should be welcomed by the local officials; not only that, but when it is whisper ed so loud on every street corner, and on every unit of the Yuma project, that "many things have been done that should not have been done, and man...

wrongs have existed or do exist they will be promptly righted, and righted in a manner that will make the unit holders and water users glad that they cast their lot with the Yuma project, than which there is no richer land nor better crop-growing climate on the face of God's footstool. A couple of million dollars lifted from their shoul ders will make them so happy that they will, each and all, want to rush to the Reclamation corral and hug and kiss every one of those noble "78 horses and mules" and do homage to the unlisted jackasses in a similar affectionate manner.

ARIZONA SENTINEL YUMA SOUTHWEST VOLUME XLV. NUMBER 30. (By Benjamin Franklin Fly) "Off ag'in! On ag'in! Gone ag'in!" but not "Flannigin," for this time it is the local board of costs review! There is again a vacancy on the board! After all that has been said, it now develops that former Assistant Manager Lawson is not to serve on the local board! This information comes like a clap of thunder from a clear sky, and yet it is never theless true, for I get the in formation direct from Chair man Fleming, and he got it from Dr. ElwoodMead, chair man of the general board of review, now looked upon as the real head of the entire U. S. Reclamation Service! It is more than likely that there are two reasons why Mr. Lawson is not to serve as a member of the local in quisitorial body first, because he did not want to shoulder the burdens of the former manager, and second, be cause he was chosen by the Denver officials of the U. S. R. S. without consulting Dr. Mead, they evidently still laboring ...

HER HEAD NECK THEY HFR (Special to the Yuma Daily Examiner) NEW YORK, July 14. Transparent hats and furs, velvet head-gear and low necks these are some of the things in the summer fashions that men question, and even a few women come up to and shy at, as the ther mometer soars skyward. The little McCiU A Sports Hat of Blue Taffeta, the ; Woven '"Rikisha" and Silk Sail or; the "Chin-Chin," the Jabot and the Puritan Collar maiden with her "rikisha" hat goes serenely on; the girl with the white fox furs hugs them more closely, and the wearer of the velvet hat sedately raises a parasol. Such matters are be yond comprehension of mere man or the woman who was brought up to view clothes for comfort. Their very oddity is the lure that makes them popular. What matters a coat of tan if the hat is woven with holes to duplicate the headdress of the ma nthat pulls-the jinrikisha in Japan? Even the woman who is conserva tive -with her dress and suit, casts wisdom to the winds above the shoulder-l...

Get in the Band Wagon and Meet Secretary Lane Halfway (By Benjatain Franklin Fly) It must have been with great pleasure that all entry men, land owners and water users of the Yuma valley unit read Mr. Louis P. Hamilton's splendid letter of advice as printed in this morning's Yu ma Sun, for it certainly was a . crack-a-jack it hit the nail squarely on the head ! It is in exact accord with what the Examiner has steadfastly con tended for, and must of neces sity result in great gOOd tO the Yuma valley settlers, if they will but heed the kindly in tended advice. Mr. Hamilton points out very clearly that it will take many years to settle the dif ferences between the settlers and the Secretary of the In terior by means of law suits; he points out what may hap pen in the event of a change in the national administration and also calls attention to what may happen if some one else were called upon to fill Secretarv Lane's Dlace: he! also calls special attention to the very palpable fact that...

IMPERIAL DAMAGE IS LESS THAN SUPPOSED LITTLE OF LAY OF THE LAI ICE CREAM With a FLAVOR Contrary to first reports, the Imperi al valley suffered comparatively little from its recent earthquake, according to vice-president and general manager W. R, Scott of the Southern Pacific company. Scott has just completed a .trip through the valley, made particu larly to ascertain the condition of the country and to note the damage done ty the quake. "None of the towns have suffered any damage as a result of the quake, Tvith the exception of El Centro Cal exico and Mexicali," said Vice-president Scott yesterday. "At these place.s v.ith very few exceptions, the damage has been confined to projecting por tions of buildings acting as ornamenta tion. When damage has been done to walls of brick structures, it has been due altogether to the character of con struction, the mortor being dry and of poor quality and not making perfect bond with the bricks.

RES ON HIGH FINANCE: WHAT LAGUNA Di REVEALS (By Benjamin Franklin Fly) There is a famliiar old saw that says "figures don't lie," and for that very reason I have always loved to deal with them for my policy has ever been to "tell the truth and shame the devil." I have, therefore, become intensely interested in all annual re ports, pamphlets, published statements and congressional investigations that pertain to the Yuma project, and while it may truthfully be said that "figures don't lie," still when you read what I am now going to give you, if you study them closely, always keeping the dates in mind, you will come to the conclusion that some body has been guilty of an awful lot of juggling, to say the least. According to former Man ager Sellew's 13th annual re port there had been spent on the Yuma project up to and including June 30, 1914, the sum of $6,703,754.84 "for con struction of project to date." According to the 13th an nual report of the U. S. R. S., compiled in Washington,...

MOBLEY MEADOWS The sudden passing of Sheriff Mobley Meadows has come with a shock to the whole county. He was still a young man, but into his life, in California and Arizona, there had been crowded a strenuous fron tier experience that had developed the peculiar gifts that made him the ideal man for the position he held. Kindly and modest in his instincts; quick, quiet and unafraid in facing bad men, he was a terror to evil doers at the same time he endeared himself to others as few men do. Imperial Press. Mobley Meadows, sheriff since Im perial county was organized, died of acute peritonitis at an El Centro hospi tal at 10:20 o'clock Tuesday night. He was stricken with pains in the abdo n eng early in the evening. The pain .grew more acute and at G:30 o'clock he was removed to the hospital. An hour and a half later relief came and for a few minutes he conversed with a deputy. At 9 o'clock, when Deputy Sheriff Graham went to the hospital, he was in a semi-unconscious condi tion. He ...

CHARITY ON VERY STUPENDOUS SCALE Relief of human suffering was never effected on so large a scale as by the American Commission for the Relief of Belgium, and never has relief work of such magnitude "been conducted so thoroughly, systematically and eco nomically. At the start, the commission secured provisions and' distributed them as carefully as possible whenever the des titute could be reached. But that was a makeshift. Members of the commis sion, many of them men successful in large business undertakings, applied business principles to the problem. They organized the finances and in dustry of Belgium; erected a great banking and commercial trading insti tution whereby money and credit were exchanged for provisions. Gold dis appeared, but there was an abundance of paper money. The commission made all who had the money pay for the food, and when the money was gone, accepted credit slips. Then they got Germany to agree to let the commission collect foreign debts to Belgium ,in gold...
