8 VOYAGE ON THE COLORADO Prospector Makes Trip by Boat From Needles to Calexico. Traveling by boat to the very heart of wli.it was formerly the great Colo rado Desert may yet become one of the popular diversions. Only a week or so ago the valley papers had an account of a family that had come down all the way from Xeedles to Holtville on their own water craft. Now cornea another talc of the same sort. liast Friday Robert McElroy, an old-time prospector, was in El Centro, on hia wny out to the coast after an intrrj'jjting experience as a river trav eler. McElroy has been spending con siderable time in prospecting along the Colorado River and adjacent ter ritory, and declares he has found ore of almost fabalous richness. He car ries samples with him which show free gold in considerable quantities, and says that he has discovered a rich min eral field on an Indian Reservation, which he will locate when the oppor tunity offers.

Saturday, June 13, 1908. FRUIT PROSPECTS. Expert's Observations on Condition of Tree* and Vlnea in the Vailev. Having made n tour of tin t*ftllo;' to ascertain the condition of fruit and trees I am more than ever convince'] that there Is no known spot on earth that can compare with this for Apricot and grape growing. Tho winds that have been the hardest and most'con tinuous this spring of any recorded seem to have no effect on the fruit. The gum disease, which caused some anxiety at one time, has proved of small moment, as It seems to be disappearing and the trees to be out growing It. While in Los Angeles I consulted the Horticultural Commis sioners regarding It., and was advised that It was likely caused by too heavy irrigation at the first, which caused the sap to start faster than it could flow and this forced It out through the bark and I believe this is ' true. I found one man whose tree did not show, the least signs of gum, and upon enquiry found he had given his trees a thor...

Imperial Valley Press. VOL. VIII. YELLOW YARN OF STARVING BOYS REFUTED BUT NOT CORRECTED El Centro Chamber of Commerce Makes Statement of the ■ Facts Which Los Angeles Papers Refused to Print. Loafers and Agitators Responsible for Misrepresentation of Conditions in Imperial Valley, C. M. Dunnick, the insurance man who iv charged, jointly with E. J.

Mr. Durinick brought with him twenty-two college boys and found places for all of them immedi ately. He is not an employment agent, nor is Phelan; but it appears probable that Phelan violated the provisions of a Los Angeles city ordinance by ac cepting fees without having taken out a license. The Los Angeles police are after employnient agencies which have been preying .on the unemployed, and they seem to have got Phelan mix ed up w r ith the crowd and to have as sumed that Dunnick i...
