In the North BRAWLEY AND IRRIGATION DISTRICTS 4 AND 8 SUBSCRIPTIONS FOR THE PRESS MAY BE LEFT AT BRAWLEY POSTOFFICE. The session of the Chamber of Com merce Saturday evening was a lively one. The Brawley Land Company some time since agreed to sell two lots to the Cham her, to be paid for in installments. Thinking that the Chamber was not go ing to be able to make the payments, Frank S. Miller, president of the com pany, sold the lots to an individual pur chaser. This sale came before the Cham ber at its last session, and some hot words were spoken by President Mans lield and other members, which led to Mr. Miller resigning from the Chamber. The Brawley Chamber of Commerce is carrying on a good work in caring for the public interests of that end of the valley, and is adding to its membership from among the progressive fanners as well as business men. Cady, Lee & Co. have just opened a fine stock of furniture, and are consider ing adding other lines to their stock in the near futu...

LIVE STOCK CENSUS Some Pithy Points Regarding Great Industry Uncle Sam's live stock holdings are valued at close to three billion dollars. That certainly makes even the steel trust look small. If it is true that the United States has over a million less cattle, other than milch cows, than a year ago, it is no time for cattlemen to become dis couraged. The increase of some 300,000 milch cows in the country might be due to the operations of the oleo law. The total number of cattle in the country is less than 8,000,000 above the total of ten years ago, which is not be ginning to keep pace with the growth of population. Cattle, other than milch cows, num ber 43,629,498 head, showing a decrease of 1,029,708 head. Texas, of course, is far and away in the lead, with 8,087,989 head. lowa is next, with 3,502,532. In Texas the average value is $10.13, and ■ in lowa $22. 10 — more than twice as much, so that while the cattle in Texas aggregate $31,928,093 the cattle in lowa are valued at $77,3...

COAST COUNTRY CROPS Another Rain Greatly Improves the Grain Situation There For the third time since February 1 the Southern California coast country has been visited by rain, the storms fol lowing one another in perfect order to maintain steady growth of vegetation. Feed is now up high enough for cattle to thrive abundantly, and it is still pushing upward. This has so far im proved the condition as to make it cer tain that the coast will have ample pas ture and will produce a good crop of grain hay, while there is prospect for a very good grain crop, with further sea sonable rain. The rain is yet below the season stand ard by considerable, but there will be no further misfortune, and the worst scare Southern California has ever had is over. Imperial valley has not gloated over the misfortune which seemed to be threatening the coast. Grain and hay failure there might have brought tem porary advantage to us, and it undoubt edly led to some benefits to this valley, but in the long run...

RAILROAD CONSTRUCTION Steady Progress on Two Lines From Imperial Work on the railroad grades from Im perial to Holtville and to Calexico are making good headway, and in each case the work is approaching completion. Mitchell & Holt, who have the con tract for the Holtville road, expect to finish their task by March 21. They have the grade within two miles of com pletion, the gap being near the Alamo river. They have teams at work on both sides of the stream. The Calexico grade is practically through to that town, only requiring finishing touches along the line. Tracklaying is expected to begin in about three weeks, and it is thought the Southern Pacific Company will make short work of it. Trams may be run ning from Imperial to Calexico and from Imperial to Holtville by May 1.

BARLEY HEADING OUT Many Beautiful Fields of Grain Near- ing Harvest There is grain near Imperial now standing between four and five feet high, which is heading out and will soon be ready for harvest. This is the case particularly with a field of barley on Holland & Farnsworth's ranch. It is a volunteer crop, and experienced fanners estimate the yield at four tons of hay to the acre, so dense and high is tlie growth. A parallel of this is found on the ranch of W. A. Woods. r Of the 60,000 acres of grain growing in the valley, there are all conditions of crops, and seeding still continues on a large scale. But there are a number ol'o 1 ' crops which will be ready for harvest by April 1. Grain harvest will be continu ous from that date to about September 1, a period of five months.

LIVE STOCK RATES Chief Tariff Officials Have Decided in Favor of Raise In all probability western railroads will increase the lates for live stock shipment. This action is said to be practically determined upon by the chief tariff officials. Local freight agents have been informed that the rates will very likely be increased, although the exact amount has not been learned. From all over the west there has been complaint that live stock is not handled expeditiously by the railroad com panies. Shippers maintain that in many cases their consignment have not ar rived at the destination in time for the markets of the day on which they were supposed to arrive. Freight agents admit that in some cades the handling of live stock has not been done with as much celerity as ship pers expect, but they say that it has been impossible to care for the business properly when rates were insufficient to pay actual operating expenses. The railroad companies propose to raise the rates and then give bett...

MAY SHIP HAY Freight Rates Make it Possible to Ship at Good profit Their are a few fields of grain in the valley which will be ready for cutting foi hay within two or three weeks, which will make by far the earliest hay in the State. The producers are now figuring on the possibility of shipping this to Los Angeles, where the price of grain hay ranges about $18 a ton. The freight rate is $4.80, leaving the Imperial price on board cars $13.20. These early crops are all volunteer and very heavy. It is ex pected that some of them will run to four tons to the acre. Under these cir cumstances, it looks as though some of the farmers might get from $30 to $40 an acre for their early hay crops, and we may have again a number of caees where the crop exceeds in value the total cost of the land and all improvements.

Holtville EASTSIDE WATER COMPANIES 5 AND 7 SUBSCRIPTIONS FOR THE PRESS MAY BE LEFT AT HOLTVILLE POSTOFFICE. W. F. Holt, who was in the valley most of the week, is busy with his many projects for promoting Holtville and its various enterprises. One hundred head of horses are at work on the power canal, and yet it is expected that it will take until June 1 to complete the work. This canal, which is one of the largest works in the valley, is expected to cost about $20,000. Brick-layers are actively at work on the hotel building, which is making good progress. The brick going into the building are exceptionally good. Grading for the Interurban railroad from Imperial is expected to be com pleted by March 20.
