THE LAND FRAUDS Papcn Rndmg Themes for Many Stories Frequently do the .city papers give more news as to land frauds in the Imperial Valley. They are bound that the valley shall not be allowed to ro ahead peacefully to its destined greatness. All of which may be the greatest of blessing to us. There may have been in the past a misuse of the land privileges and if so, there is , no better time than now to open up the matter and have it settled. It never can be accomplished so « easily as now and less innocent people will suffer now than later; it is even doubtful if any inno cent man or woman will suffer at the present time. It is apparent that someone has been busy in this valley. The Press is of the opinion that fif there are cases of fraud they j should be dealt with, but it can not countenance wholesale con testing. A great many settlers . may be contested and still be .able to hold his land, but it en tails an unnecessary expense up on him that he is not able to stand and should ...

All factional differences were laid aside and all classes mingled to send along with good cheer the work which was to follow in building this road that means so much to San Diego and all her people. The feeling was high, the events were of stirring mo ment and the speakers could not refrain from being eloquent when they referred to the enterprise and activity that has been evi denced in the past few months and which they believe will con tinue until the final completion and the beginning of operation of the railroad that means San Diego's emancipation. The speakers of the day were prominent men and nearly all -of them realized to what extent the Imperial Valley figured as being the o...

NOT SATISFIED Attorney Utley of San Diego Can't Give it Up The question as to who shall pay for transcribing the .assess ment rolls from the books at the court house for the benefit of the • new county of Imperial is appar- , ently no nearer a solution than before the reply from the attor ney-geperal of the state was re ceived at the district attorney's office. In his opinion Attorney- General Webb states that the utatutes provide that the work ■hall be done by the officers of the old county. He say s Z ,"The officers of San Diego affected by this provision are within the control of the leg islature and it is entirely competent for the legislature to prescribe their duties and these duties may be increas ed or diminished during the term, of the incumbent. That a statute imposing new and additional duties upon an in cumbent officer does not pro vide an additional compensa tion is not a legal objection to the validity of such statute. That hew and additional du ties may be imposed upo...

Imperial Valley Press. VOL. VII BRAWLEY BUILDING Movement Toward Building at Brawley Steadily Increasing 11 Brawley is likely to become the scene of much building ac tivity this fall. The sound of hammer and saw can be heard from every direction. One thing in particular which pleases the Brawley people as much as any other one thing is the putting'in of a new front in the old bank building. This was the worst dilapidated building in the town and has been the object of much . criticism ever since the earth •quake. But now the work of fitting it up has already begun and it will present a very credit able appearance when finished. Regarding the building in that town the Brawley News prints the following: Recent notice was given of the improvements which will be made in the buildings of Mrs. J. W. Kerfton and Varney Bros., next the Imperial Valley Bank building, the adobes being torn out and replaced with brick and concrete blocks. • During the past week W. F. Holt has an nounced his in...

DENATURED ALCOHOL New Law Expected to Stimulate Manufacture of Raw Material The now Federal law relating to the denaturing: of alcohol went into effect on the first of this month. Great things are expect ed of it. Whether many of them will be realized remains to be seen. As a matter of fact, the Government's efforts to encour age the manufacture of denatur ed alcohol has not been much of a success so far. During the first session of the Fifty-ninth Congress there was a loud call from all sections of tbe country for the removal of the internal revenue tax from denatured al cohol. It was represented to Congress that, with the tax tak en off denatured alcohol would take the place of gasoline and wood alcohol. Wonderful pic tures of what would be accom piished in a short time were painted. In response to the public de mand Congress passed the bill taking the tax off, and the Pres ident, with a good word for the legislation, signed the bill June 7th last year. Before issuing regulations ...
