Imperial Press AND FARMER. VOL 1. IMPERIAL WATER COMPANIES. MUTUAL WATER COMPANIES ABSOLUTELY CONTROLLED BY LAND OWNERS. PARENT COMPANIES FURNISH WATER TO MUTUAL COMPANIES UNDER PERPETUAL CONTRACT AT STIPULATED PRfCE THAT CANNOT BE CHANGED. A correspondent writes for infor mation relative to the various water companies in the Imperial Settlements. He seems to think that some of the water companies are selling water to consumers and by relying on another water company for the water, that there is a chance for a. cinch game. So long as any one thinks that there is an opportunity to get hurt in pur chasing land and water stock, it is better to so state, and seek to have matters explained. LOCATION OF THE PERMANENT HEADING OK THE IMPERIAL CANAL SYSTEM ON THE COLORADO RIVER, ONR MILE ABOVE THE TEMPORARY HEADING NOW BEING USED. There is one large water company — the California Development Com pany—which owns the water right from the Colorado River and owns, in connection with a subsidiary...

2 the irrigation systems of California; and in forming the system for the Im perial Settlements they have sought to make the very best system possible from a water user's point of view, for if the water users are satisfied the system will be a success, and if they are not satisfied it will be a failure. Experts who have examined this system pronounce it the very best that could be formed, and this is the conclusion that all reach who have given the matter careful study so as to understand the program as out lined. Now there are several Mutual Water Companies — each named Im perial Water Company but each Com pany is numbered. At present theie numbers run from 1 to 6, but each company is a duplicate of each other and a stockholder in No. 1 has noth ing to do with No. 2 or any other number. Hence this multiplicity of Mutual Companies cuts no figure but makes matters more simple; for if a person sells out in one locality, under No. 1, for instance, and purchases again in another localit...

FROM DESERT TO GARDEN. THE COLORADO DELTA— THE MOST WORTHLESS DESERT IN THE COUNTRY NOW BEING RECLAIMED AND COLONIZED BY ENERGETIC AMERICANS. THE LARGEST IRRIGATION SYSTEM IN THE UNITED STATES. The Colorado Desert is being wiped from the map of California, and in its place there is growing up very rap idly an extensive, prosperous and wealthy community that will in the next few years add many millions to the assessment roll of the State and many thousands of names to the great register and probably one to the fam ily of counties. "In the Beginning". About fifty years ago, Dr. Wozen craft, of San Bernardino, commenced an investigation of a project to re claim this desert by means of water taken from the Colorado river. He presented his plans to Congress ask ing for a grant of the lands to be re claimed. In 1858 the Committee on Public Lands in the House of Representa tives reported favorably on the conces sions asked for. About the same time the State of California conditionally surr...

4 CREATION OF WEALTH. Everyone has heard of the man who makes two blades of grass to grow where only one grew before be ing a benefactor of mankind, etc., but if such be the case how about a com bination of men who take 800,000 acres of land that isn't worth a cent a section and over 3,000,000 acre feet of water annually that isn't worth 30 cents, and, putting them together, create a wealth safely estimated at $80,000,000? And in thus estimating the wealth created, the water and land com bined is only considered as being worth $100 an acre, which is conser vative, and nothing is said of the per sonal property and improvements on that land and the town and city prop erty in connection therewith, and railroads and factories and other evi dences of progress and prosperity which would double the sum of wealth produced, making a total of $160,000,000. All this will be created in the short space of ten years of time, or an average of $16,000,000 a year. This is the result of utilizing in ...

WORK IN HAND Progress Being Made on Canal and Many Laterals A large number of people are watch ing the extension of the irrigation system to the west and north, while a force of 300 horses and mules and many men is advancing the outposts so rap idly that the public is at no time fully informed regarding the progress be ing made. The first use of water on a large scale for irrigation in the im mediate vicinity of Imperial is on the land of W. F. Holt, south of town, leased to Messrs. Jenks and Edgar, where 160 acres is being put in to bar ley. While the task of spreading water through this section is such that it will necessarily require several weeks, it is evident that several thousand acres will have water available at an early date. In Lower California a force of sixty teams is at work on the main canal, the water having flowed past some un completed gaps in a side canal, ample to meet all prospective demands on the system for the coining winter. The completion of the work on tha...

Entered at the Imperial, California Postoffice as second-class mail matter. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1901. SAN DIEGO OR LOS ANGELES? There are some indications of a coming contest for the trade of Im perial between San Diego and Los An geles. The latter town is now mani festing a desire to retain and extend the trade with Imperial of which it has thus far held a monopiy. If the Southern Pacific railroad should come to the belief that its interests lie in promoting the growth of a country on its lines into which hundreds of people are passing and where hundreds of thousands of acres are to be brought under intensive cultivation, it will undoubtedly seek an inlet into Im perial defore other railroad projects are consummated for the valley, and...

Will Build Large Store W. B. Broadwell of Covina, who has paid two visits to Imperial, writes that on the first of the year he will begin the erection of a store building on his lots across Imperial avenue from the lumber yard, in block 82. The new building will be 40 by 90 feet, making a large store room. When Mr. Broad well wrote he intended to build of adobe, but when he learns that there will probably be a brick yard in opera tion in time for his building, and that brickwork will be obtainable at a low figure, it is probable that he will amend his plans and use the more en during material. Mr. Broadwell carries a large stock of dry goods, clothing, shoes, men's goods, etc., at Covina, and it is believed to be his intention to move his entire stock to Imperial. He is a young and energetic man. Control the Ditches In the temporary canal passing through Imperial there has been so much water of late that when no one was irrigating the water would over flow. This has happened on two ...

8 FUTURE OF THE SOIL There is every reason to believe that in course of cultivation the constituents and texture of the soil of the Imperial valley will undergo marked change, as the soil of every new country must. This is partially because, in the course of cultivation, there will be a natural tendency to add to the elements which are least plentiful and to draw from those which are most abundant. It is said that in the Salt River valley it is possible to determine from a glance at the soil in which places it was culti vated by the ancient lost race and in which it has never been cultivated. In the same valley it has been found that grain following alfalfa on a given piece of land produces much heavier crops than when grown as a first crop. Potash, phosphoric acid and nitrogen are the essential chemical elements in plant growth, neither one being able to replace another. Humus is a desir able element in the soil for regulating its texture, though not essential for plant growth. In ...

INVESTING MILLIONS. H. E. Huntington who has occupied such a prominent position in the Southern Pacific Railroad Company as assistant president to his uncle, C. P. Huntington, having sold out his interests in that road and also his in terests in the street railroad systems of San Francisco, has turned his attention to Southern California and especially to Los Angeles, and has commenced to invest his millions in this end of the State where business is active and progress the watchword. He is reported as having said that he would rather reside in Los An geles than in any other city on the Pacific Coast. Evidently he is shaping his business to follow his inclinations so far as place or residence is con cerned. Again it is said that where a man's treasure is there will- his heart be also. Mr. Huntington is planting his treasure in Southern California as rapidly as it can be done judiciously. It would be a poor business policy for Mr. Huntington to advertise the fact that he is going to ...

10 FRANK WIGGINS HOME AGAIN. THE POPULAR SECRETARY OF THE LOS ANGELES CHAMBER OF COMMERCE RETURNS FROM HIS LABORS AT BUFFALO. RECEIVES ENDORSEMENT IN A VERY SUBSTANTIAL MANNER. Frank Wiggins, tne popular secre tary and manager of the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, and his wife, having spent the season on duty at the Pan-American Exposition at Buf falo in a manner to call forth the hearty approval of the business men of Southern California, have returned home to receive a hearty welcome. Mr. Wiggins reports that the expo sition, as an exposition, was a grand success, but that as a business ven ture it was a failure because of in competency on tne part of the direct orate. Mr. Wiggins says: "As an exhibition the fair was a tremendous success. Our exhibit was one of the drawing cards of the Hor ticultural Building. Our space was equal to any State exhibit.

STOP, H THINK, - ACT! - THERE are thousands of people in Southern California today who have money to invest and who are looking for investments. There are other thousands who are not, strictly speaking, looking for investments, but who would be glad to put a little money where it would do the most good. The attention of both classes is called particularly to the rapid development now in progress in the settlement of 500,000 acres of land under the Imperial Canal System in the eastern portion of San Diego county. This settlement is no boom proposition. It is founded on the largest and most fertile tract of irrigable land to be found in arid America. The Imperial Canal System is what its name indicates — the most abundant supply of water that can be used for irrigation purposes in America. Not only is the water abundant, but it is cheap. Experience shows that 500,000 acres of such land, when under cultivation, will support a popula- tion of from 150,000 upwards. Such a population must...
