LAND FRAUDS WILL BE INVESTIGATED Although there have been strenuous denial from cer \ tain quarters in and out of the valley that there have not been any violations of the land laws in the Im perial valley, it nevertheless appears that steps are being taken to investigate the situation. It was to be expected that some people would attempt to ( throw dust in order to obstruct a clear view into the matter. And it is not surprising that the Standard at Imperial should be used as a medium. The Press looks at it this way: If frauds have been committed, no one suffers from an investigation but the guilty, and then we will all feel satisfied that all of the past land transactions have had a thorough airing, and the mat ter will hate been settled once and for all time. Let v the investigation proceed. The following articles would indicate Imperial valley land deals will proceed: San Francisco, Aug. 9— W. C. Bristol, United States attorney for Oregon, who has been In the city con f erring wi...

MEN LAID OFF Nearly 300 Men at Lagona Are Laid OfF Last Salurday^nlght the governmejit 1 laid off nea-ly SOO^men at the woriTs at Laguna dam. All the men on the •California side were laid off, but 125 were retained on the Ar'zsna side of the river. The reason for this decrease In the force at the government dam Is the shortage of appropriation for the La guna project. It appears that the putting In ot this dam Is costing more than what was at first estimated, and *the force has been cut down to cor respond with the present available funds. Governing these funds for the gov ernment projects there Is a distributing (board, and this board Is expected to meet, the latter part of this month or the first ,of September, and will appor tion funds to increase the force again at Laguna.

Rob inson of the local land office have been receiving homestead applications for Imperial Valley lands, but suspended them pending a fesurvey.

The territory Involved in the decision embraces more than half a million acres. Squatters on the land will doubtless contest the rights of other claimants and blood may be shed before the complicated situation Is finally ad- In commenting on the decision, O. R. W...

"The effect of the ruling of the com missioner is not to oust actual settlers from their holdings, "writes Gen. Pres cott. "As the lands are to be surveyed they are now regarded as unsurveyed.

WILD TURKEYS A Plan Is On Foot to Stock Our Mountains With Wild Turkeys Before leaving for the north Senator A. M. Willis of Redlands made the interesting announce ment that, if plans recently formulated by the State Game and Fish Commission are carried out, the mountains of Southern California may soon offer to hunters that' prince of game birds, the wild turkey. A part of the funds derived from the hunter's license law is to be used in stocking the reserves of the State with this "national" bird. The departure has been discussed by the Board, and finally agreed upon, data having been collected proving the feasibity of the ven ture. From the forests of Arizona the first consignment of wild turkeys is likely to come. The Arizona forests are said to be alive with the birds, and with the aid of experts in the art of trapping them and collecting their eggs it is thought possible to obtain a sufficient number to make a fair start in the unusual work, and once the first birds are turned ...
