PLEADS FEAR OF COURT lntim?tes Th?t Sett'er3 Would Welch If They Had n Chance — Two Com panies Assent to Request For Modi fication of Contract Terms of Pay ment. \ The California Development Com pany has notified the mutual water companies of Imperial Valley that it wants its pay for water once a month instead of semi-annually. One of its reasons is that it needs the money. Other reasons are given, but they are unimportant, and one of them at least is purely imaginary. The president of the C. D. Co. pro fesses to be alarmed lest the opinion of Judge Wellborn operate to annul the contracts between the C. D. and the mutual companies, and leave the latter owing several months' water rentals, wh'rh they may be unable or unwilling to pay and which the C. D. Company cannot collect by suit. Of course it is now generally recognized that Judge Wellborn 's remarks on the subject of the C. D. Co's scheme of s...

Saturday, August 22, 1908. NO OVERPRODUCTION OF CANTALOUPES NOTION THAT MARKET WAS GLUTTED ALL WRONG. Sage Advice From Wise Men That Makes the Grower, Who Knows What Was the Matter With Melons, Very Tired. The notion that a market* which takes readily 30,000 carloads of i oranges was "glutted" with less than 2000 carloads of Imperial Valley can taloupes has got Itself firmly wedged into the heads of many more or less wise persons, and there it sticks. The Rural California!! gravely points out the mistake of ''putting too many eggs under one hen", and says: "Last year in the Imperial Valley 800 acres were planted to cantaloupes and the planters realized a good profit. This fact stimulated enterprise in that line of production beyond all reason. The acreage planted to can taloupes this year has increased some thing like ten fold.
