Imperial Press. VOL. 11. Mutual Water Companies. Southern California has developed a system of water corporations which are the outgrowth of the necessities of the case.- This system was known years ago as the Holt system and was adver tised as such in San Bernardino county. Afterwards this class of water corporations was designated after the plan of the system instead of the author, and they were, called mutual water companies because the stock of these companies was <lpwned by the people who owned the .land to be irri gated in proportion to the acreage of each — there being allotted usually one share of stock to each acre of land. Mutual water companies are co operative in character and are formed for the purpose of furnishing water to their stockholders only at cost. These corporations never declare any divi- (lends because there is never any profit. The stockholders get their dividends in the way of cheap 1 water instead of paying a profit to some capitalistic combination. Th...

2 Judge Works' Attack on Riverside. The Riverside Press takes up the water question as raised by the Judge Works Bill, in a very forceful manner as follows: In the somewhat lengthy, and it must be admitted, not altogether good tempered, statement which Judge Works has made in defense of his ir rigation bill, lie takes occasion to single out Riverside and the River side Water company for a special attack. If the people of Riverside needed any argument that the bill ought to be defeated, the statements which Judge Works makes in Ins pamphlet, which he has had printed and circulated among the members of the legislature, will certainly con vince them. A portion of this state ment was published in the Press of Saturday and we make the following brief extract at this time to aei'V'3 as a text for this editorial: One inch of water to four acres of land is a wanton and useless waste of at least half of the water. The Riverside Water company has no right any more than a p'r)«.'<il9 citize...

Proud, all residents of Los Angeles. Mr. Holt is advertising manager of tho Imperial Land Company and Mrs. Proud was first reader of the Christian Science Church of Garvanza.

C. Pierce, pastor of the Memorial Baptist Church, Tuesday evening at 8:30 at the home of George W. Wilson No. 615 Avenue 66.

8 We, Also, Have a Nile. A number of European papers, including the Gartenlaube, a popular Gorman weekly, recently puolished illustrated articles descriptive of the Nile dam at Assouan, n gigantic piece of work that was formally opened on the 10th of last December. This, as the journal referred to truly says, is worthy to rank alongside of the great Pyramids as a mammoth exhibition of human enterprise. Unlike the Pyramids, which wer c built at vast cost of human life and blood for the glory of individuals, this great work has been constructed by paid labor, and will result in making homos for many thousands of people. The Nile darn, upon which 12,000 people worked four years, and the cost of which was nearly $25,000,000, is two kilometers long and holds up a lake 175 kilometers in length. (A j kilometer is nearly five-eighths of a mile.) The water Is let out through j five flood gates to irrigate land that j has hitherto been uncultivated on ac- 1 count of the lack of water.

Imperial Press. VOL. 11. Prospect for Irrigation Along the Colorado River A Project Requiring Vast Expenditure Which Would Bring Equally Great Returns in Land Reclaimed. By Frederick Haynes Newell, Chief Engineer, Reclama tion Survey. The following notes are from ob servations made during a four weeks' trip in California and Arizona, in the course of which I floated 400 miles down the Colorado River in a small rowboat. The purpose of this trip was to investigate the possibilities of that section of the southwestern des ert country in the line of irrigation, and to get a preliminary idea of the feasibility of conserving the great floods of water which at certain sea sons of the year pass down the Colo rado River to the Gulf of California. In some respects this projected en terprise resembles the great reclam ation works which have been con structed by the English government in Egypt, whereby the flood waters of the Nile are impounded and distrib uted- over millions of acres of fertil...

2 Doctor Jones On Imperial Lands. BERKELEY (Cal.) Feb. 9, 1903.— (Editor Fruit World.) In answer to the questions, "What do I think of the Imperial lands in San Diego county, Cal.?" After a personal visit through tho valley by driving many days, over n>ii:iy M.v.ions of li.o valley; digging and boring mnny holes, noting the physical characteristics of the soil and making many analyses of the same, and noting the results the farm ers have achieved in one year, I must say there are boundless possibilities for the farmer who locates there. From previous reports I expected to find the soil full of alkali, but after making about 250 tests, some from the surface and some from the depths of one, two and three feet, it revealed the fact that the largest part of it is free enough from salt and black al kali, to be used for profitable agricult ure. Much of it is of a sandy loam, which takes water readily and can be easily cultivated. There are small areas where clay predominates, that will...

ONE DOLLAR A YEAR. The credit system is the curse of the country paper. Not to exceed one half of the papers sent out from the country press of the whole country are ever paid for. The consequence is that the subscription price must be fuily double that of a paper run on a cash basis. After April Ist, no copy of the'lMPßK i.\l y Pkkss will be sent out unless paid for in advance, and in every case after that date the subscription will be dis continued with the expiration of the time paid for. Running thus on a cash basis, the subscrition price can be reduced to $1 a year, a price within the reach of everybody. Work Commenced on Flume. Work has been commenced on the Hume which will carry the water across New River to serve the lands in No. 8.
