SALT COMPANY WINS FIGHT
FLOODING OF SALTON SEA CAUSE
California Development Company Held
Responsible for Inflow of Waters
from Colorado River
Victory and the award of M 56.746.23 was
the fate of the New Liverpool Salt com
pany at the hands of Judge Olin Well
born hi Us nult against the California
Development company, which was de
clared to be responsible for the destruc
tion of the salt company's property by
the overflow of the Colorado river into
the Salton Bea. The award Is declared
to be the largest ever made In tho circuit
court of the Ninth district.
The suit was filed April 7, 1905, and
has been bitterly contested. A total of
Js:M,;l4ij.i3 was asked for In the oi-iginal
complaint, but the claim's of *42,U00 for
railroad and J25.U00 for loss of business
wtro not allowed. The decision carries
with it a restraining order sought to pre
vent the development company from di
verting other than Irrigation water from
the river. The plant of the salt company,
however, still remains submerged in tile
deep waters of the Salton sea.
The California Development company
began Its work of developing territory
in the neighborhood of the Colorado river
In the latter part of 1904, and is said to
have failed to provide floodgates and
other means of protection against the
waters of that river. Suits to restrain
the company from diverting the river
water for other purposes than irrigation
were filed the next year, and these suits
were fought as strenuously as was the
one asking damages.
Companies Held as One
Judge J. W. McKlnley and Attorneys
E. J. McCutcheon und Purcell Ilowe rep
resented the salt company in the suit,
while Attorneys E- A. Meserve und John
(3. Chapman defended the development
Judge Wellborn, in his decision, de
clares that neither the Mexican company
nor the mutual companies which were
brought into the case are necessary par
tie» for various reasons. Jn the first
place the companies, he says, were or
ganized by the development company
and are new acting instrumental^ lor
effecting the diversion of water com
plained of and should be considered for
the purpose of the suit as identical with
Judge Wellborn declares the grounds
for injunction have not been removed by
the destruction of the salt company's
works and by the closing of the salt
company's Intakes, and Bayn the com
plainant is entitled to have its freehold
protected without regard to the amount
of damage threatened; otherwise the
overflow might ripen into a servitude
upon the land.
Discussing the merits of the case, the
court says the question Is largely an
Issue of fact, and concludes that the.
water*, which overflowed the land be
longing to the salt company, destroying
Its property, were largely. If not en
tirely, the waters diverted from the Colo
rado river through the lntaKes oi Uio t
Negligent, Says Court
The court declares the defendant was
negligent, among other respects, in not
selecting proper places for the Intakes
and In not providing suitable headgates
to control the "flow, and says this negli
gence was the direct cause of the over
flow and the resulting loss of property.
The court gives little heed to the claim
of the development company that the
floods of 1805 would have overflowed the
salt company's land, even It no intakes
had been provided, and says the conten
tion lacks merit and la pure speculation
ani unsusceptible of proof. He says It
Is not an Improbable conjecture that the
scouring of the bed of the river by the
floods of 1905. following each other in
quick succession, would have so deep
ened the river's channel that the waters
would have found their way to the gulf,
rather than the Salton basin, whence
they were deflected by the intakes.
DEFENDANT WIPED OUT OF
EXISTENCE; S. P. TAKES STOCK
By Associate* Frew.
IMPERIAL. Dec. 31.-The California
Development company, which today was
ordered by Judge Wellborn to pay the
New Liverpool Salt company heavy dam
ages, has parted with all its real estate,
including the headgate to its canal, which
has all been transferred to the Southern
Pacific railroad, deeds having been DIM
with the clerk of Imperial county.
The Southern Pacific furnished capital
with which to control the river after It
broke into Salton basin, taking as secur
ity stock of the company, with W. J.
Doran of Los Angeles acting as trustee
for the railroad. Doran now transfers
the realty to the railroad on an apparent
basis of agreement which practically
wipes the development company out of
existence and puts the Southern Pacific
more completely behind the irrigation
project. ♦ !.".
Another turn in affairs is the attach
ment by the estate of the late A. H.
Heber of all water rentals due the de
velopment company from the mutual
water companies. [

The financial stringency in Los Angeles began October
28, 1907. Between that time and the present we have paid
checks on "Demand" and "Special Ordinary" accounts with
out interruption. "Term" and "Ordinary" deposits have beenc
subject to notice, but the necessities of depositors have in ev
ery case been provided for, even where the amount was large
or where gold was needed. Notices of withdrawal maturing
during December were anticipated, and so far as called for
were paid in November. The bank has taken out no scrip,
called no loans, nor sold any securities. The assets of the .
bank (except money in other banks subject to check through
the Clearing house) have at all times been unencumbered and i
in our own possession. The restrictions on withdrawals are
being gradually removed, and we believe that within a very
short time none will exist.
During the period mentioned there has been deposited "
$552,224.88 and $580,512.15 has been withdrawn, thus showing
a net decrease in deposits of less than 2\ per cent. Two hun
dred and fifty new accounts have been opened.
For the confidence indicated by these conditions the offi- v ■
cers express their grateful appreciation. ;
The Equitable Savings Bank 13 organized under the law \ .
as an Exclusive Savings Bank and enjoys, together with tho'|&M
depositors, the full protection guaranteed to that class of
4 per cent paid on Term Deposits (Semi-annually) ;
' 3 per cent paid on Ordinary Deposits (Semi-annually)
3 per cent paid on Special Ordinary Accounts (Monthly) ;
. The last named accounts are subject to check without presentations'
of pass books, and Interest is computed; monthly on lowest balance. It ,J
< must be understood, however,' that while no notice is being required on :
these accounts, and probably never will be, the Bank never waives .Its V
right to do so, if necessary. ; ,
