Imperial Valley Press. VOL. IX. COLORADO'S FLOOD IS NOT MENACING Protective Works on West Banks Safeguard the Valley Crest of the June Rise Expected to Pass Yuma on Sunday— Engineers Watching the River and Ready to Meet Unforeseen Troubles. From Needles is reported an extra ordinary volume of water coming down the Colorado, indicating that the crest of the June flood may be un commonly high at Yuma when it ar rives. Engineers of the C. D. Co. are at the heading and along the levees, watching for trouble, but no damage to the works is expected. The dams closing the break of three years ago constitute the most solid and secure section of the river bank anywhere below Yuma, and there is not the remotest chance that the river will again invade Imperial Valley by way of the Alamo channel or the ir rigation canal. The overflow into Vol cano lake is all turned southward by the levee from Black Butte across New River, and there is no probability that any part of the flood can find its way t...

2 EARLY RIVER HISTORY Fl'St Sleamtoat on the Colorado Put Together on Bank by Captain Thornhull Fifty- Seven Years Ago. TLc Arizona Sentinel publishes an interesting sketch or early days on the Colorado River. It says: "September 3, 1852, the schooner Capacity arrived at the mouth of the Colorado bringing as freight the first steaii.boai that floated on the river. "She was put together on the river bank by Captain Thornhull, and at length reached old Port Yuma, now the Indian School, December 29. "The sleamer was christened "Uncle Tom." She was a side wheeler, with % locomotive engine of 20 horse pow er, was 65 feet long, 10 feet wide, 3 deep and sharp at both ends, with a load of 35 tons of stores she drew 22 inches of water. "Early In January, 1853, an earth quake made great changes in the channel of the Colorado below the junction of the Gila. "The Uncle Tom plied the Colorado until June 22, 1854, when she sank at her moorings five miles below the post, and all efforts failed to ...
