Imperial Valley Press. VOL. VI WHAT THE WATER IS DOING Progress of Channel Cutting in New River Renders the Valley Free From Danger of Flood. Main Canal Carried Away and Water On Wednesday afternoon we took a trip to the main canal and as far west as the Five headgates to see just what was being done and had been done by the water during the week since we had visited it before. We drove from El Centro due south up the Date canal to where it heads in the main canal and went from there west to the Five headgates and what we saw Is well worth going many miles to see. We saw the entire process of channel cut ting exemplified on a large scale. Ar riving at the head of the Date canal we could see by the water lines on the levee and on the posts In the fence with which the levee had been pro tected, that the water had fallen about three inches at that point from Its highest point which It had reached a few days before. ■ The dredger of the California De velopment company was at work In the...

ABOUT TWO PER CENT Of the State of California Was Af fected by the Recent Earthquake Says Governor Pardee California with one hundred millions of acres is greater in area than New England, New York and Pennsylvania. On the eastern sea-board Its coast line would extend from Boston on the north to Charleston on the south. ' In some localities the notion Is prevalent that all this great state was shaken by the recent earthquake. Such Is not the fact. The earthquake was severe In only about two per cent of the area of the state and as a dis turbing factor was confined to a dis trict seventy-five miles north, one hundred and twenty-five miles south and fifty miles eastward from San Francisco. Even In this narrow strip of California's expanse, the damage from the earthquake was small In comparison with that of the fire of San Francisco. Indeed the Charleston earthquake in 1886 was proportionately much more destructive to life and property than was the shock, of April 18th In San Francisco...

OUR WATER RIGHTS From a careful reading of the con tract published last weak it will be seen that while the bluff was still put up that the water was appropriated and OWNED by the California Develop ment company and by it sold to the Socledad de Yrrigaclon which In turn was to deliver »t to Imperial Water company No. ■ md such story Is set out in the preamble to the contract there Is nothing said abou selling the RIGHT TO USE the water to Water company No I . Aside from the pre amble which is no part of the contract pr per as It contains no stipulations to be observed by either party, there is nothing In this contract other than an agreement for a common carrier cor poration acting under the laws of this State to take vater from the Colorado river and deliver It to another corpora tion for distribution among Its stock holders.

THE COMMISSIONERSHIP At Imperial and How the Old C. D. Company Push Tried to Get It. In his iMtie of June 2nd the editor of the Imperial Standard make 9 pome statements about the United States Commissionership and our incumbency of the office that we are glad to see him publish, for it give? us an opportunity to give pome history that will prove in teresting to our readers. To begin with, we will state that the old C. I>. company push always did covet that office. So self sufficient and cock enre were they of their ability to control Judge Wellborn ami have him appoint a man of their choosing, that when Roy McPJierrin was brought out to Los Angeles from Nebraska to work for the C. D. company push, one of the considerations promieed him as an in ducement to enter their service, was that li€ should have the appointment of United States Commissioner at Im perial. When Judge Wellborn refused to appoint him the push then sought to accomplish the same ends by having a man appointed Dep...

N O WATER RIGHTS tract on the subject as they had been accustomed continuously to do since be fore the state was organized asilgovern ment. In the light of the foregoing views, the provision of section 2 that the right to collect compensation for the use of water 'cannot be exercised except by authority of and in the manner pre scribed by law,' means that if the legis lature shall by statute prescribe the par ticular manner in which the right shall bo exercised, that manner (if it be rea sonable) must be followed if consumers insist on it; but,' in the absence of euch statute, then 'by authority of law' means by the authority of the general substan tive law of the land in which all rights of property and its use or enjoyment are founded. Our conclusion is that • the •contract involved in the case at bar is not made invalid by the provisions of the constitution invoked by appellants. The only act passed by the legislature touching the subjecthere under consid eration which calls fbr ...

NO WATER RIGHTS yon out In one of the clearest cut de ciders that has ever been rendered In this State on the rights of ' the water users to the water to Irrigate their lands. In view of this decision and numerous others along the same line It is manifest that the plan on which Imperial Water company No. 1 was organized was defective for the pur- J peses for which It was organized. This company was ostensibly put forth to supply entrymen on desert lands with water rights so they could reclaim their lands and acquire title from the gov ernment. The government required then, as It requires now, that the en tryman shall show that he has a -clear right to sufficient water to successfully and permanently Irrigate his land" and this requirement Is now being more strenuously Insisted upon than ever. Messrs. Stephens and Stephens de ny that the stockholder in this water company has any right to the water much less a -clear right" as the gov ernment requires. They say them selves "neither th...

Imperial Valley Press. VOL. VI WHAT WE SAW On a. 1 rip to Mecca and the Coachella 'V alley How Our Neighbors Are Prospering on Small Ranches With Limited Water Supply. Special Products and Cultural Methods of Great Importance to Our Farmers. Last Sunday morning we boarded the 4 o'clock train and went to Thermal, in the Coachella Valley, eight miles boyond the Saiton Ocean. We spent Sunday and Monday looking over that country, visiting Salton Sea. the Mecca Date farm, Thayer Bros, asparagus field, Dr. Abbey's grapes. and numerous cantaloupe ranches. We believe it will pay any Imperial Valley man to take this trip, as we did. for If he does, he will return more than ever convinced of the splendid advantages of this Valley. The most striking difference one notes between this valley and 'he Coachella valley Is In the relative amount of land in culti vation and the size of the ranches. We don't believe, to take the Coachella valley over as a whole r that there is to exceed one- tenth of ...

SLANDERS RENTED "Vile Lies of the Imperial Standard Disproved and their Author Called Down In his last week's issue the editor of the Imperial paper made all kinds of assertions against the solvency of Mr. W. F. Holt and his enterprises. In fact, the sheet fairly reeked with venom toward Mr. Holt and his busi ness ventures and everything that could be said in a covert and cowardly way was said to their detriment. He at tacked the banks in which Mr. Holt is interested and belittled everything he is connected with. Not being able to publish all the hatred he entertains against Mr. Holt in his 'sheet he spread the story that he is bankrupt, that -everything he has is mortgaged even to his home in Redlands. Upon Mr. Holt's arrival in the Valley he prompt ly called on the editor and demanded to know his authority for any such statements. Of course the editor had . lied and had no authority for his asser tions. Mr. Holt then made him a proposition that if he can find any rec ord of a mort...
