Raising Hogs on Alfalfa [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 20 April 1901
Raising Hogs on Alfalfa Pork production in Utah has not been a profitable branch of the live stock industry, but with the introduction of creameries and cheese factories, creating a large by-product of skinimilk and whey, it has been found profitable to raise a limited number of hogs. Corn, of course, is largely out of tlie question as food in most sectioiiHnf the state, but there is tin abundance of alfalfa, some bran and shorts. The Utah experiment .station instituted a number of tests in pork production, and these are reported in bulletin No. 70. These experiments show that fattening hogs can be economical ly'acconlplished on pasture in connection with v grain ration. Pigs running on pasture with partial grain rations produced gains at the least cost per hundred pounds. In the quantity of grain required tor 100 pounds of gain, the pigs given one-fourth grain ration excelled in every test and gave the highest percentage of profit. Alfalfa without other food, whether pastured by pi...

FOR THE FARMER | The National Irrigation Survey Soon to Be Started A Method for Disposing of Old Bones and Ashes— Value of Subsoiling— Sweet Potato Biscuits Large shipments of nursery stock are being made from Orange county to Phoenix, Ariz. There are five cheese factories at San Felipe, Santa Clara county which turn out 10,000 pounds of cheese weekly. Texas papers are bragging about cabbage heads weighing 15 pounds, and onions measuring 17 inches in circumference. That's nothing; ask Murdock of Westminster how about cauliflowers that you can dance on. American Gardening ridicules the efforts being made to have a law passed by the New York Legislature to protect purchasers of nursery stock against San Jose scale. When we remember the vast expense and labor and loss imposed upon California fruit growers by the scale, their fumigating tents, cyaniio washes, and sprays innumerable, are forcible reminders that regulations can hardly be too stringent, if they will regulate; and protectio...

We make the following extracts from Mr. Swayne's letter under date of April 15: "For many years past there has been awakening in the minds of some farseeing men an interest in that portion of our country located in California, east of the coast range and immediately north of the Mexican line, and known as the Colorado desert. These men, beginning with Dr. O. M. Wozencraft, as far back as 1856, have persistently declared that it was feasibly to place a great portion of these socalled desert lands under a good state of ...

Peculiar Hog Case Stockton, Cal. — Arthur Ennls, son of ex-Supervisor Ennls of this county, was found guilty by a jury of petit larceny in having stolen, in company with Jack Stennett and Paul Davis, a hog from the Sargent ranch.

He was afterward acquitted of perjury and later convicted of stealing a hog from another man. He then turned state's evidence and gave testimony which resulted in the conviction of Ennis.

HOT MEETING OF FRUIT MEN [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 27 April 1901
HOT MEETING OF FRUIT MEN Action of Association Is Denounced San Jose — The fruit growers of the state held an excited meeting at Hale's hall, a number of the speakers hotly denouncing the cured fruit association for cutting the price of prunes from 3 to 2 cents per pound. Some were in favor of putting the association into liquidation, while others advocated a continuation of the combine, at least until the present surplus stock has been disposed of. Judge Bond, president of the association, talked for nearly an hour, reviewing the work of the organization from the date of it formation. He said that not only is the prune market overstocked, but there is the same surplus in the east and abroad in pears, apricots and apples. He said that the eastern jobbers absolutely refused to handle any considerable quantity of prunes at a rate exceeding a 2-cent basis. Judge Bond announced that the association had decided to do no more advertising. Already $20,000 has been expended, and this sum ha...
CUBANS RESOLVE TO COME TO [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 27 April 1901
CUBANS RESOLVE TO COME TO They Will Decide Upon the Platt Amendment i Havana — At the opening of the secret I session of the constitutional convention Senor Nunez asked that the convention either reject or accept the Platt amendment, as the resolution adopted was not a formal declaration and was misleading. The conservatives considered that the resolution practically rejected the amendment, while the radicals and the radical press maintained that it did ■ not, and Senor Nunez therefore asked ; that a yea and nay vote be taken. This I was opposed by the radicals, who have always avoided taking a deefded stand. The conservatives were pleased at the point, and as a split was threatened among the radicals, a compromise was offered and agreed to, by the terms of which a resolution was adopted that the convention should not express itself either for or against the amendment, and that a commission be sent to Washington to secure the best possible agreement with the President. This commissi...
