4 A Chatty Letter. The Santa Ana Herald Is fortunate in having a very competent corres pondent at Imperial who dishes up current items in a very readable man ner. Sometimes ho signs himself "Elmendorf" and sometimes simply "Doc," following Is an extract from his letter dated Nov. 1.: Day beforo yesterday an eight-mule team with heavily loaded wagon rolled into Imperial, manned by three sturdy brothers from the peatlands of Orange county, the Crane boys. They've come for biz, and today "fitted out" and moved upon the east side canal system to take a hand in the construction of the water system in that portion of tho Imperial country. Yesterday, in company with one of them, I took a drive down, or up, to Calexico, the bor der town which lies, slap up to the Mexican viejo. A step over the ditch, and I was in Mexican territory. The contrast was noticeable. North of this imaginary line were modern struct ures, stores, shops and the commodious offices of the Imperial Water company, with v...

Water Users Should Control. George H. Maxwell Is a believer in the proposition that the man who causes the soil to be Irrigated should absolutely control the water that ir rigates the same. He is opposed to the Wyoming law which provides that the waters of the State should be dis tributed by State officials who may know nor care nothing about the busi ness, and who, as a rule, are con trolled by political cliques and bosses. He declares that the waters of a stream should be distributed by the men who irrigate land from that stream and that such distribution should be in accordance with well-de fined rights, in, the stream. In his speech at Omaha recently be foro the Executive Committee of the Omaha Commercial Club he said on this subject: We have had to contend against wrong theories emanating from the West, from fie beginning of this move ment: W.e have fought our way over them, one- at a time, inch by inch, and step by step, until we have finally overcome most of them. First, we h...

Imperial Press AND FARMER. VOL. 11. State Division. There seems to be an "'impressible conflict" between the people of this State residing in Northern and Cen tral California and those residing in Southern California on the one live is sue of State Division. The sentiment of the State at large is undergoing a gradual change on this subject. This is true of Northern California as well as of Southern California. Our peo ple are*gradually becoming practically unanimous in favor of a State for Southern" California, and the people of the upper portion of the State are gradually beginning to think that the /best way to settle the question is to divide the State. The Sacramento Record-Union ap pears to voice the sentiment of that portion of the State in a recent edi torial from which we clip the follow ing: So far as the people north of Te- hachepi are concerned, they have be come heartily weary of this demand for division. The majority are op posed to it, because they do not be lieve it t...

Four Cuttings of Alfalfa the First Season — Barley and Sorghum on the same land the same year made Big Yields — Experts pronounce this land the most productive of any lands to be found elsewhere in California or in Arizona. There is probably no place in the United States when there is so much money being made at good plain every day general farming as there is now being made in the Imperial Settle ments, when we take into consider ation the cost of the investment nec essary to carry on the work.

Irrigation Statistics. The census bureau has issued a special bulletin on agriculture in the United States which devotes a large amount of space to a summary of the investigations on irrigation. We quote as follows from this portion of the bulletin: "The first systematic application of irrigation by Anglo-Saxons in the arid west was made by the Mormons, who, driven out of Illinois and Missouri, took their flight westward into the unknown desert regions, and finally, after great privation and suffering, were forced largely by necessity to stop on the shores of the Great Salt Lake. The soil was so barren that crops could not be raised by ordinary means, and, compelled by fear of pri vation to adopt new and extraordi nary devices, they turned the waters of the little canyon streams upon the ground where Salt Lake City now stands. "At about the time when the Mor mons were building up the State of Desert, now Utah, the gold miners in California were building ditches for placer mining, an...

4 Going to Imperial. We are in receipt of a copy of the Logan County Advocate of No vember 20th. The paper is published at Sterling, Colorado, and is very enthusiastic over the irrigated farm ing lands in that section of the State, and the statement is published in display type that Sterling is growing faster than any other section of the State. There is a list of irrigated farms advertised for sale as bargains in which we notice that the land is held from about $40 to $70 an acre. We also notice that some of the residents of that fine country proposed to emigrate to Imperial in order it is presumed that they may be able to improve their condition. Following is a single item: S. J. Ulrey left for Imperial, Cal., last night to locate on the Imperial lands, in which Mr. H. B. Davis is interested. Also the following: H. B. Davis will run some cheap land excursions to California this fall and winter. Several thousand acres choice Government land near Los Angeles is now open for settleme...

It is to be hoped that this new club just organized as a re sult of the institute will prove worthy of its parent and will do the good it should do, and that its members and officers will be ever ready to take hold of that which seems best for the com munity at large, and act with tact and zeal upon those things which will tend to improve the town and country.
