gion of VUKl possibilities Js on event of
Imperial Valley Work.
Fur llvo of six yenrs, experiments In
cotton growing have been carried on In
thu luiperbil Vnlloy of California; but
It wus less than two 5 urn iiko thnt
any one had tho hardihood to actually
cngugo In cotton growing on a com
mercial scale. Five hundred acres of
laiiil were seeded In cotton In the Im
perial Valley In the sprint? of 1009. and
when tho harvest was llnlihed III thn
Winter of 1909-10, tho success of the
venture was so concluslcly established
that everjone knew that thli wui
henceforth tn bo ono of tho great sta
ple farm crops of the hot desert valley
region In the southeastern part of the
State. iJist year fully 10,000 ncres
wero planted lif cotton. The Inst of tho
crop was harvested Into hi January of
this enr. averaging' three quarters of
n bale to tip? acre. Thli season some
thing like 00,000 ncres will be planted
In cotton In the Imperial (Valley, and
probably 10.000 ncres In thu Cuachella
Vnlley, win re u vnuill iicrenuo wns

ings nre being mndn In other volleys
hn the Houlhern half of the State, and
no ono longer doubts thnt n new Cali
fornia Industry, of vnsl potential Im
portance, linn been born.
The successful Tstnbllshment of cot
ton growlnif means much more than
Increased prosperity for the fnrmers
! and higher prices for land. It means
a great Influx of new settlers, the-rapld
growth of established towns nnd tho
building of new ones, the establishment
of new manufacturing Industries, the
expansion of the dairy Industries
through the provision of tho best pos
sible stock fml, more freight for tho
railroads to haill. Increased trade with
tlio Orient, and nn nddltlunnl prosper
ity booit all along tho line.
Fruit and Cotton.
California fruit growers nnd market
gardeners haxfl, shown to all tho world
tho great things that may be accom
plished by Intefllgent cooperation. To
the various njinclatlons formed to se
cure the.cooperntlon of tho producers
In (Kicking, shipping nnd marketing
their products must ho attributed n
lnrce measure of the success of Call-
forulani In conquering markets nt tho
other edge of the continent, nnd even
across tin- ocean. Tho lesson was, not
lost On the cotton growers. They
formed the .Imperial Valley oil nnd cot'
ton lomp.iny, n cooperative ossochv
tlon to provide for handling tho cotton
crop, erxctlng a cottonseed nil mill, nnd
building cotton gins wherever needed
throughout the new cotton-growing
district. Ready cash Is necessarily
scarce In n newly settled nnd rapidly
developing agricultural region; so the
cotton planters agreed to tnko stock In
the ginning, oil pressing and marketing
agency In proportion to their proipec
tlvo ncrenge, nnd to pay forthelr stock
In cottonseed at $lf. per ton when re
celved from the gins. Nino thousand
ucrcs of cotton wero pledged, giving
the conoeratlvo association contracts
representing approximately 4500 tons of
cottonseed as a tangible uaset. As
sistance was secured from bankers In
I.os Angeles and Ban Diego, und cotton
gins wero built nt Kl Centro, Holt
vllle, nrnwley, t'nlexlco nnd Heber. At
111 Centro u eotto'isecd mill and large
seed and bull houses were erected, nnd
independent gins were built nt Impe
rial, nnd near Thermal, In tho Coach
elln, Vnlley. Cotton gins will be built
by tho cuoperiitlVH association at Mo
bile und Westmoreland, In tho Impe
rial Valley, mid tit any other points
nround which ti Hiilllclent acreage of
cotton Is planted. For n two year old
H n fa nt, therefore, cotton growing In this
part of the Colorado desert Is n well
established and thriving Industry. What
It will b6 In n deende from nbw, It re
qulnis an active Imagination tn fore
Cotton growing In the Haltnn basin
Is n. very different proposition than
cotton growing In the south, for the
reason that Irrigation Is uhsoliitely es
sential to the production of a crop,
This, of coursc.Nnvolvcs greater ex
pense, hut the application of water
Just when It Is needed nnd In Juit thn
right quantities, means the production
of greater crops, and n practical In
Mirnnco against crop failures. In the
cotton belt of Hie southr too, early
froMs frequently curtail tho crop; nnd
tho advent of winter makes Is neces
sary to rush the picking with till pos
sjblo speed. ,
In the Imperial Valley the first cot
ton bolls open III August, hut tho be
King Street, next to Young Duilding
reservation In Arizona. Boinc of tho
Mission Indians of California, nnd Mex
icans from below the border gave ths
new employment n lr7nl, nnd It Is prob
able that the supply of Jatsir from
these various sources will bo equal tn
till future demands. In the south 75
cents per 100 pounds Is the prevailing
rate pnld for picking. In tho Imperial
Vnlliy many growers paid $1.25 per 100
pounds, nnd II was tho lowest rate paid
last season. Some pickers nchleve as
much ns n bale (of, 600 pounds) In n
day, but tho average Is nearer 250
California's first cotton crop wns
pructlcally nil taken by cotton mills ol
Oakland, and was converted Into twine,
rope, bedspreads and similar articles.
Experts representing great thread
manurncturlng nnd textile Industries
have examined nnd tested the liber, and
have pronounced It equal to the best
of the sanio. urletles grown In the
Southern Stntes. Representatives of
large cotton mills nt Toklo and Kobe.
Japan, hnvo Investigated conditions In
thu Haljon basin nnd the quality of the
cotton produced there, with the double
object of llmllng new sources of supply
for their mills nnd of ascertaining w lint
opportunities there are for their own
countrymen to engage In cotton cul
ture Rates to Orient. "
Rntes of transportation give the Cal
ifornia cotton growers n decided ad
vantage In supplying the cotton mills of
the Orient. Th rate from Texas points
to Him Francisco are 30 cents per 100
pounds higher than from the Imperial
Vallev. It Is evident, then, that cotton
growers of the Imperial and Conchella
valleys have nn unlimited outlet In the
markets of the Orient, and that the
expansion of the now Industry will re
suit In a great enlargement of our trade
with Japon. It Is evident, too. that the
manufacture of cotton goods In Call
fornla must recolve a, great Impetus.
Much of the production so-far has been
marketed In Oakland; nnd the growth
of the Industry of cotton growing In
the Saltan bosln will Inevitably result
lii putting many thousands of spindles
whirling In tho manufacturing centers
of tho State.
For several years the, government has
been experimenting In the Imperial
Valley with Kgyptlun cotton, simitar to
the Sea Island cotton grown on Isinntts
off tho coast of Oenrgln. but with long
er, liner und more elastic libers. It Is,
In fact, the most valuublo "cotton pro
duced anywhere, and millions of dol
lars" worth are Imported Into the Unit
ed States for mixing with the Inferior
staples of the South. It appears to
have been conclusively proven that
Kgyptlan cotton will nourish In Cali
fornia' ns weU ns In Hgypt. If further
experience confirms this opinion, Cali
fornia, will unquestlonnbly rank ob the
most Important cotton growing State In
tho Union, In proportion to tho aver
age devoted to tho crop.
The weight of tho cotton seeds, from
which tho libers have been removed, Is
fully twice the weight of the libers
themselves. Until after tho civil war
the seeds were regarded a? worthless,
and nil but tho relatively smull quan
tity needed for planting were destroy

ton belt of the South practically the
entire population depends, directly or
Indirectly, upon cotton for prosperity,
If not for n bare livelihood. More than
30,000,000 acres are planted In cotton
every year, nnd It hns been computed
that not less than 850,000 men, women
and children nre-enguged In the cotton
fields of the South picking thp crop.

used In the preparation Of pnlnts; and
It Is snld thnt largo quantities are ex

The residue, o(ter the oil hns boen ex

cattle, horses nnd swine, and Is shipped
to every Stnje In the Union. Thnt Is
why the development of a great cotton

Cotton wns Introduced Into territory
that was nfttrunrds Included In the
United Stntes In the year 1S3A from
Mexico. 1 or nearly 250 years It wns
grown to n limited t'xtent for home
use. In 1780 Is wus llrst exported, In
1781 eight bags, or about 3000 pounds,
were shipped to Liverpool.1! whero It
was seized by the English custnmhouso
officials on the ground that tho Amor
loan States could not possibly have
produced so prodigious n qtirtntlly, mid
that the .captain of the vessel must
have smuggled It from some other
country At the present time American
cotton rorms the principal reliance of
the great textile Industries of Or oat
llrltiiln, France, Holland, (lerni.iny and
Ilelglum, nlth'ough Egypt exports tho
fiber to the vnlue of 1110,000,000 mi

lalsir-savlng device ever Invented In the
United Stntes was the cotton gin Its
Influence upon tlie wealth. Industries
and destinies of the United States has
been Incalculable. llefore Its Inven

slowness of the process may bo Imag
