THE IMPERIAL RESURVEY Its Delay A Serious Detriment To The Land Titles Held Up On Technical Grounds, Which Retards The Development Of The Imperial Country There is one thing which, perhaps, as much asjjaiiy other, retards tlie develop ment of Imperial Valley at the present time, and that is the muddle in which the land department has gotten the matter of issuing final proof receipts and land patents.

At any rate, when the Imperial Land Company took up the work of locating settlers in this Valley in 1900 they were unable to find any remains of the government survey in the lands...

I own my home, not much to be sure, but better than paying rent, would I be allowed to retain it, and if I wanted to go elsewhere how could I dispose of it? 3rd. Don't you think there would be a great deal of dissatisfaction if all the people had to live in houses alike?

Travel is such a luxury at the present time that most people are obliged to do without it and must stay in one place all the time. No education can be called complete without the lessons which travel gives and as the complete education of all the young will develop upon societ...

4 NATIONAL CONTROL OP THE COLORADO RIVER Continued from Page 1 diversion dam in the Colorado river at a point about twelve miles northeast from Yunm, Arizona, and the reclama tion of about one hundred thousand acres of land in Arizona and California. Congress had passed a law authorizing the construction of tb« dam across the river and the diversion of its waters hy the Reclamation Service at this point. Just at thia juncture a formal protest to the construction of the dam was filed by the Mexican government on the ground that such action by the United States would destroy the navigability of the stream and be in abrogation of the treaty between the two nations concern ing this stream. This action by the Mexican government has led to the appointment by President Roosevelt of three members to represent our gov ernment in a joint high commission for the negotiation of a new treaty wiht Mexico in which the distribution, (supervision, control and use of the waters of the Colorado river ...

8 Waste and Want Wo have been taught from childhood that wilfull waste makes woeful want, but it \B quito evident that this old adage needs to bo be revised in these days when everything is produced for gale instead of for uho as formerly. To day the producer finds that the more there is wasted of the surplus product of labor the better times will he have and thu further from him will want be removed. This seems odd, let us see what makes it true. You work produc ing something for the market using instruments such as rail roads, flour mills, factories, etc., in completing pro duction which is owned by someone else, and receive for your product some money which enables you to go to the market and buy back, either of your own or someone elses product, a part of the value of the goods you produced. Now, according to the best figures obtainable (the U. 8. census of 1900) your average product ia $2451 per an nnm. This is the value of the amount you produced when measured in the retail pr...
