Imperial Valley Press. VOL. VIII. STEADY GROWTH NO SUSPENSION OF BUILDING ACTIVITY IN EL CENTRO DURING SUMMER MONTHS. CITY'S HANDSOMEST BLOCK First National Bank Building to Be Erected Immediately — Work Pro gressing On Brick Business Struc tures and Many Frame Residences — Getting Ready for Ten Thousand. El Centro is experiencing a period of building activity that is remarkable when the time of year and climatic conditions are considered. The natur al expectation was that an absolute curtailment of labor in the building trades would be in effect during June, July and August; yet constant prog ress has been made and a most grati fying showing is to be witnessed in all parts of the town. This, doubtless, is but a foretaste of the activities for the coming fall and winter. It becomes more evident daily that El ( Centro's desire of expanding until it reaches a population of 10,000 is not an over-enthusiastic one, and that it may be accomplished even before the five years usually set as...

[Pacific Fruit World.] On account of the unusual condition of the cantaloupe market, which has been bad enough, a groat many news paper articles are appearing with very startling reports as to the condition of the melon industry in the Imperial Valley. This industry is one of the new ones in Southern California, and has grown suddenly to an enormous volume, and has had to meet climatic, and marketing conditions for which it was wholly unorganized and unprepar ed. Some of the newspaper articles state that the total charges for freight commission and refrigeration to date, have been about $245,000, and that the total receipts for the crop have been only $24G,000. \ These are not tho facts as it may be 'clearly shown that one associatio...

2 Pioneering and Politics An Outline Sketch of Condition* In Two Frontier Communities, (!ly BL CAPITAN.) The pioneer people of this reclaimed dosert land are different from all other frontiersmen and American desert dwellers in many ways, and partic ularly In this: That, they care not at all for small politics and refuse to get excited over the troubles of job hunters and jack-leg politicians. They do not. think politics, and they waste little time In talking politics. That Is partly because they are busy building an umpire of industry and have affairH of Importance to them selves to absorb their mental and phy sical energies. There are other reas ons, which appear when one consid ers the social conditions of some Southwestern communities. • Some years ago I edited a weekly paper in a county seat in one of the arid territories, and was forced by the environment into close association with what was termed "politics" in that turbulent country.
