California Development Company getting ready for the Coming Winter Rush of People — Railroad to be Com • pleted — A Hundred Thousand Dollars to be Spent in Construction lof Distributing Canals — All Indications Point to Unparalleled Devel opment during Coming Season. The Imperial Settlements have been enjoying a quiet season for several months preparatory to the rush of people and work that is certainly coming during the coming Fall and Winter. In the early days of this settlement the California Development Company started in to resurvey the public lands under the Imperial Canal Sys tem. Because of lack of information and established corners, there was a mistake made in getting the starting point, and hence it became necessary to apply to Congress for a resurvey of these lands by the General Gov ernment.

2 When to Register. The laws are changed so frequently that it is next to impossible to keep track of them. It may bo safely stated, however, that this year voters can register at any time prior to forty days before election, which this year is September 24 and can thus be authorized to vote at the general elec tion of November 4th. All Great Registers are canceled this year, so that the voter who has not registered during the current year of 1902 must register or lose his vote this year. If tho voter's name is on the Great Register he may get a transfer from ono precinct to another at any time prior to ten days before election, which this year is October 25th. If the voter is a new citizen of this State the law requires that he shall have resided in the State one year prior to the casting of a vote. How ever, he may register at any time even though he may not have resided in the State one year at the time of such registry, provided he shall have resided in the State one year prior ...

Yosemite for the People. Wm. E. Smythe, author of "The Conquest of Arid America," thus en dorses a proposition to improve the Yosemite Valley. We quote from that popular magazine — "Out West." The wave of enthusiasm for the building of California which is sweep ing over the States has produced a crop of valuable ideas. It is signifi cant that so many of them take the form of suggestions looking to public enterprise. More and more it is seen that we have come to the end of our day of little things and stand upon the threshold of a day of large under takings. This being so, we are forced to realize that our choice lies be tween the encouragement of vast pri vate investments and the adoption of a plan of development under public auspices. The appreciation of the fact marks a transition in popular sentiment. We are seriously consider ing the assertion of public authority and the use of public capital and credit in doing many things essential to the full development of the State— such th...

A SOCIAL GATHERING A Large Crowd Gather at the Brick Block and Pass Enjoyable Evening The long expected social gathering has come and passed anrl with us are left many pleasant recollections such as the hum of conversation of the large and happy crowd assembled at the brick block; the merry laughter of the children; the clicking and flight of the elusive ping pong ball; the iced fruit punch; the music, and last but not least the lunch served in the office down stairs. The large hall upstairs was beauti fully decorated in green. Festoons of greasewood and uiesquitu hung grace fully down from the rafters, the posts were hidden by bunches of tule and Egyptian corn and the whole was interspersed with Hags and lights, making it a scene not soon to be for gotten. On the north and south sides of the hall seats were arranged for the ladies and in a comer was an attrac tion for the thirsty traveler of the desert in the shape of iced fruit punch, and by the way that corner was crowded from st...

6 Why That Veto. The Pasadena News, edited by that able legislator, Hon. W. S. Melick, who was a member of the last Leg islature, and who was a live member at that body— recently published the following query, which was not an swered as per request: "Will Judge McKinley tell the crowd tonight why Governor Gage ve toed that bill for $107,000 which pro vided for a system of \ co-operation with the geological department of the United States government in the sur veying of the watersheds of California? Through J. B. Lippincott and F. H. Newell, the United States govern ment agreed to spend $100,000 in Cal ifornia to match the like amount appropriated by California. The ap propriation bill, with all its safeguards providing for the expenditure of the money by trained U. S. government engineers, was carefully drawn and had the backing of the State Water and Forest society of 10,000 prominent men of California, headed by Chief Justice Beatty. It passed the legis lature with only two dissen...

THE REAL ESTATE MARKET OF TODAY COM •^ -^A^D^TH THE^BOOM^OF FlFl^Efe- : : , 'o&^s^i YEARS 'AGCK/ ' : • ; M >• ' A boom, in real' estate parlance/ is a condition of the financial affairs of the country that will encourage real •estate speculation on a large scale;; that will induce those of a speculat ing turn of mind to "buy property purely on speculation by putting up a small sum of money to secure the right to purchase a given piece of property at a given price within a stated time, and if the property is not so taken, then the money paid is to Jse forfeited.. During the . boom of , 1886-7-B— a period jnade memorable here in Southern California by the fortunes made, and fortunes lost-r-this species of speculation was carried to an ex cess, so that nearly all classes of peo ple were drawn into the craze to the . exclusion of more legitimate lines of business.

2 SUCCESS OF RICE CULTURE IN IMPERIAL RICE EXPERTS BELIEVE THAT IMPERIAL IS DESTINED TO LEAD IN THIS CROP. A Half Section Purchased for Rice Culture— Some Facts Regarding Profits of the Business— Three Times as Profitable as Wheat. Great interest is now being mani fested in the culture of rice under the Imperial Canal System. Recently Mr. J. P. Elder of Pomona, a gentleman well versed in rice cul ture, visited Imperial to see what the prospect would be for engaging in rice culture on a large scale. He in vestigated the crop raised here the first season and was amazed at the result thus far obtained. Rice usually yields from 12 to 18 barrels of grain per acre. The Im perial rice crop was put in late last season by people who knew little or nothing about the business and yet he states that the crop is of excellent quality, although a little short of a full crop — the yield being estimated at 10 barrels per acre. So well pleased was he with the outlook that he secured a half-section^ o...

The Imperial Canal System. The Flint, Mich., Daily Journal gives an extended article on the Im perial Canal System, which will doubtless be of Interest to our read ers. Following is the article: "The largest irrigating system In the world lies in the southeast corner of San Diego county, Cal. Five hun dred thousand acres of arid land in California and half as much in Lower California have been brought within range of water by a series of canals whose combined length at present ex ceeds 225 miles.' The California Development is en gaged in constructing this immense system and is spending $50,000 per month in enlarging and extending tho canals. Two years will be required to complete the work. Over one hundred and seventy-five thousand acres of land have been taken up by settlers and at the pres ent time 25,000 acres are under culti vation. Today there are 2000 persons in a country which less than two years ago was an arid, barren waste, boasting not a blade of grass, not even cactus —...

4 Cactus Culture. The Riverside Enterprise, which Is published in a city' that owns a park— Albert S. White Park— that con tains a collection of cafctl said to be larger and more complete than any other collection In the State, gives some data on the subject that Is very "Yes," said Mrs. J. E. Barrows, a cactus collector, as we wore looking over the collection of which she Is justly so proud, "I call him 'my old man. He is a harmless old fellow and makes me very little trouble. He sits in the window all day, basking in the an. 1 He is a harmless old fellow and I received him that I just gave him a good washing with soap and water, and then brushed his long, white hair with a tooth brush. Now he presents quite a respectable and dignified ap pearance, you see. I may add that he is quite a traveler, having come all the way from an interior desert of Mexico." ' ; The "Old Man" cactus is one of the curiosities of plant life which always attracts attention. Certainly it pre sents a strang...

6 How To Save Sorghum For eight years I have been raising sorghum. I find one ot the best ways for me to save it, is to cut it close to the ground about the time it gets good ripe; cut with a regular cane knife. In the North, they call them the corn knife. They are two feet long. Make a start of the shocks by tying about twenty stalks together green and un cut. Bring two rows together, tie the tops with fodder. Then tie twenty stalks across each way, bracing in ev ery direction as a neuclus to start the shock. This start I make in a straight row about fifty yards apart. I cut twenty rows on each side. Do not bind it. Do not lay it on the ground. But shock it as you cut it, as a North ern man would his Indian corn. These green supports tied together will sup port large shock. Make them round. If you do not use the ground, take twine and tie to the tops of the shocks very tight, about a foot from the top until fed out. If the ground is needed you can in about ten days of open weather ...

Not Wholly Bad. An esfstern traveler who took notes of his observations on a trip to the Pacific Coast, writes as follows about the desert and some of its redeeming virtues: "To many the name desert is for bidding, but the majority of those who live on it learn to like it. Not alone because man can learn to like any thing that pays well, but because there is an attraction in the almost endless procession of clear, bright days, in the freedom from friction with ice, snow, slush and mud, that goes far toward compensating for the loneliness of even the. most remote sections. It is a common remark that you cannot live on climate. But it is equally true that good climate goes a good way. It helps out amazingly. The desert at the beginning of the new century is quite a different article from that of fifty years ago, and especially in California. As soon as the conditions of successful settle ment are in right shape, the rest fol lows, and there is no old-time pioneer ing. Many actually pr...

8 HOCH DER BAER. BY ANN TIIRACITI£. The German Kaiser once declared, That he and God this planet shared ; I never quite saw how he dared — He doesn't own the coal. My name is Baer and I'm the lad Who's started this here hard coal fad. The Almighty must be awful glad That we own all the coal. We squeeze 'cm — I'm the business man — I worked the deal to make it pan. We'll bleed the people all we can. You sec, we've got the coal. The Lord and I — what do we care How these tarnation miners fare! We're only looking for our share Of the profits from the coal. The people, too, they cut no ice. The way they grumble is not nice; They've got to ante up the price To buy our lovely coal. 'Way up above — just wait and see, I'll be the whole thing — hully gee! The firm will still be Him and ME, Because we owned the coal. I'm getting into training now, To wear a crown upon my brow; It isn't awkward learning how — For me, who owns the coal. But, never mind, my partnership Absolves me from the publi...
