Three shifts of men eight hours at a
stretch are now at work on the Colora
do river, day and night, a-d the work
will thus continue, barring unforeseen
contingencies, until its completion.
Each shift accomplishes four feet of
concrete work added to previous pour
ings. There is 1200 feet of work to be
done from the mouth of one shaft to
the other. With everything working
favorably, therefore, it is pussihle to
complete the siphon uirler four months
time. The formation that will be eng
countered under the river is very favor
able to the anticipation of little or no
seepage from the river overhead, which
would be the greatest difficulty to over
come. It is entirely possible, therefore,
to have water across the river and on
the lands of Yuma valley by the first of
June. This would necessitate, of course,
the conjoint completion of the canals
through the reservation.

Yuma County Supervisors
Go the Limit
Tbelast territorial legislature. among
its various feats of extraordinary legis
lation, passed a territorial highway
law imposing upon the various counties
the duty of levying a special road tax,
up to a maximum figure of 25 cents on
each $100, the proceeds to be devoted
to inter-county highway purposes.
Most of the counties throughout the
territory, in complying with this man
date of the legislature, were, content to
make a modest levy, most of t' em 10
and 15 cents on the $100. Graham
Graham county made a levy of 5 cents,
and the Graham county Guardian has
the following editorial comment there
"The board levied 5 cents on each
$100 valuation, for the purpose of Iny
jng out the territorial road through
this county, and the money has' been
paid by the taxpayers, and the board
dnes not propose to compel the people
to pay more money until the engineer,
who has been drawing a salary for a
year, shows them that the money is to
be spent for road betterment in this
county, and that the road is to be built
where it will do the most pood for the
"The board has not turned down the
nood roads proposition, but they are
determined to know that if they levy a
tax that the money will be spent on
making better roads in the county and
With the power of choice delegated
to them to levy a minor rate, despite
the fact that Yuma county taxpayer
are laid under an especially heavy bur
den through other factors this year,
the Yuma supervisors "went the limit,"
over Maricopa, Pima and other wealthy
and populous counties, and levied the
maximum rate of 25 cents on the $100.
They have even had the temerity to
claim that they were legally compelled
to. This confidence in the ultimate
prosperity of Yuma county, manifested
in every similar way possible, is mak
ing the taxpayers more and more ex
asperated and .will teqnire some stren
uous explaining next November. " In
the meantime it will be interesting to
watch what is done with the fund rais
ed by this territorial highway tax. It
may afford an explanation of why the
maximum rate was deliberately se
lected.' Tbetotal assessed valuation of Yuma
county, is $3,500,000. At'the rate of 25
cents on each $100 of this 'sum there
will be realized the amount of $8,750, a
burden that will be put upon the tax
payers each year, and-it will be years
before Yuma county receives any ben
e'fit'frbm it, if it ever does.

Victoria, B. C, a magazine writer of
note, who set sail from Yuma in a
twenty-foot boat down the Colorado
river to the Gulf of California Novem
ber 10, are among the missing, and
fears for their safety have been enter
tained here for the past two weeks,
which have culminated in a relief ex
pedition now being fitted out iff San
Diego headed by Albert Gandolfo, who
became intimate with the two amateur
explorers during their recent stay in
Yuma, and who is a capable deep-water
mariner and famiiiar with the gulf
country. This relief expedition will
leave San Diego in a power launch and
skirt the Baja California coast, round
ing the peninsula and going north to
Guayrnas. A land expedition will prob
ably leave from Yuma shortly.
Ix)rd Beauclerk and Pike made an
extended stay in Yuma prior to leaving
on their perilous venture, and attracted
considerable attention locally cn ac
count of their personality and plans.
They set sail down the river in the
smallest craft practicable, thereby in
curring considerable risk, planning to
circuit the upper gulf and after such
exploration and incidental sport land
on the Lower California side at La Paz
and cross overland to the Pacific shore.

endeavored to induce to go with them,
but who declined to join the venture,

at Lu Paz, who replied that Beairclerk

The disgruntled and dyspeptic
"knocker," seeing no good in anything
except, his own pet project or small fly
speck in the universe, has been at work
again and perhaps- been instrumental
in permanently retarding an important
building project "on Main street. Yuma
is filled with level-headed and energetic
"boosters," and they may succeed in
overcoming the effect of the 'knocker's'
mind poisoning; but, as one drop of ink
will discolor a glassful of water, so can
one pessimistic "knocker" sometimes
undo the work of a dozen "boosters."
Capital is a timid entity, and" shies off
at the. first bogie flaunted in it's face.
This is not' the first time a - realty or
building deal has been balked on Main
street through some calamity howler
with a more favored section of Yuma
to talk up, or a generally lugubrious
view of conditions, tainting the air
with some emanation of bile." General
ly they are individuals who have made
all hey possess from the Main street
end of town. This case in point ia no
exception. ' .
Any idea that the town of Yuma is
going to lie transplanted and the busi
ness section packed up and rnoved to
some other portion of the community
is sheer nonsense. The growth of the
future will be on logical and establish
ed lines; allsections will shartwn it and
none will be deprived of it.
