8 OUR WATER RIdHTS Continued from Page 1 of Development. These safeguards are imposed for the protection ol the land owners in Mexico, primarily, bnt they also protect the water users in the Im perial Valley equally as much. It can thus be seen that if the diversion ol water from the Colorado river is ninde in Mexico, the California Development Company and its Mexican Company will be compelled to construct proper headings for their canals and to pro tect their works and the flow of water therein, in snch manner as shall be eatisfactory to the Mexican government which means to the advantage and not to any detriment to either Mexico or the Mexican land owners. Should the California Development Company decide not to use the con cession (or the diversion of water in Mexico, and return to their original plan of taking out the water in the United States, they would still be sub ject to the same supervision in Mexico us provided in the contract, and would have to construct just such leveea...

4 Deserts fUiicrnl Wealth On the western mountainous edge of the Colorado desert, where the foot of man, perhaps, has never before trodden, there has just been discovered n vast store of yellow wealth. It is not gold, but it is a mineral which can readily be turned into gold namely, sulphur. ( . . , About eight years ago John F. Schwartz, now treasurer of the county of San Diego, together with a partner was prospecting on the desert, many miles from human habitation. The nearest semblance to a house was the ruined old adobe stage station on the Carissa creek trail and the nearest baco of supplies was Yuma, for Im perial and its surrounding towns were not then in existence. The two men came across a ledge of sulphur which promised well and they filed mining locations. There being no railway facili ties within sixty miles, they saw no prospect of developing the claims and they omitted to do the annual work required by the federal law, hence the claims lapsed. So desolate is the neigh ...
