A SWIFT CHINAMAN
And Broods a Dispute Concerning
International Law and
An unusual caso came up in Judge
Uuson's court the other day. It
was a damage suit brought by William
Elliott against Ah Gee, a Chinaman, for
ddmages. The defendant was charged
with having caused tho death of a colt
owned by the plaintiff and which was
valued at f50. Another peculiarity of
the case is that more points of law aro
likely to be brought out in the case
than there are dollars involved.
Ah Geo was nn indifferent and inex
perienccd driver and Klliott was the
owner ot a team hitched to a wood
wagon with a trailing wagon attached.
The colt was also attached. Ah Gee
camo along at a rate of speed which
would have maue Maud S. hesitate.
He struck Iho colt, knocked it under
one of the wagons which passed over it
and killed it.
Tho attorney for the defense set up
that he and Ah Geo had a right to travel
at any rate of speed which might suit
their needs and convenience, and it is
the religious duty ol colts and other ob
structions to reniovo themselves from
the Celestial right-of-way. Mr. Elliott's
uttoriiey argues that it was a reprehen
sible cneo of trcsuass.as he and his client
were not only entitled to tho road but
to eighteen inches on each side of it.

earth belonged to many different per
sons and that an undue acceleration of
speed was calculated to shorten both
human and equlno lifo contrary to the
statutes, which, if not already made,

vided. Ho further contended that a white

Extraordinary Honor Done to a
.Tho Flood, Salton Sea and tho Prob
able Result of that Over
uma. Ariz., July 23. ISpecial. To
have seen quaint old Yuma before tho
flood, jUBt after it, and now, ono could
hardly believe the changes which have
been made. It was an old, semi-Mcxl
can town, nearly nil built of adobes;
then it was all desolation, now it is
springing into life, with new frame and
brick buildings that are a credit to any
town built up under similar circumstan
ces, and the good work goes on.
West Yuma, through which the Yuma
Irrigating company's canal passes, is
already not only holding its own but
gradually drawing settlers into its
bounds. This enterprise, under the
immediato supervision of President
Capt. Frank Ingalls and Superintendent
J. II. Carpenter, Is making good head
way. True no "busting" boom accom
panies its opening and development but
a health growth marks its progress as
is always best in such schemes.
Tho Peonle'8 canal, though hardly
yet under way, is another enterprise
which will help West Yuma. In the
hands of such energetic nnd popular
citizens as Under Sheriff Ed. .Mayes,
County Physcian Dr. 1. G. Cotter, Heal
Estate Agent D. M. Field and Capt. Wil
lis, it must bo a success, The canal is
to be built on the mutual benefit nlan

The Yuma Heights company has risen
and is dressed, so they say, and soon
will be ready to put in n good day's
work. Its plan, as now laid oat before
the public, is to put water works and
electric lights into Yuma and along
Orauge avenue which is to run from
Yuma out to the new town of Yuma
Heights, which has been laid out on
the mesa about threo miles south. The
plan, so far as developed, seems to bo to
lay out tho fine mesa lands which are
included within the boundaries of the
"burg" into five and ten-acre lots, clear,
fence and set out the satno to vines
and fruit trees; put water and electric
lights onto each lot, build a nice, cosy
cottage on the same and sell the whole
to actual settlers, men of families, on
the installment plan.
The scheme is an excellent one and
will do much towards building up south
Yuma and also towards determining
just what can bo done on and with our

editor of the same, a most excellent
Mr. BUisdoll has been east nnd ie
said to have raided funds sufficient to
carr out tho whole scheme to the
fullest dotail. With such men at the
helm it must meet with success.
Mr.Blalsdell has had much experience
in the starting of various fruits in his
celebrated ranch in the Gila valley, inst
east of Yuma, which was destroyed by
tho great Hood of last year.
Mr. Horn beck is said to have had
much to do in building up Hivereide
and Coronado Beach, Cal., where he
was somewhat of a marked figuro in the
efforts made to make those two beauti
ful towns what they are.
Some of our old cranks aro inclined to
call this a "Yuma Times" scheme, but
we answer, better be that than like the
saloon bench schemes laid out by our
eternal growlers, of which our town is
blessed with its full share. With these
three schemes in tho hands of our own
citizens, Yuma must continue to im
prove. The political horizon in Yuma county
begins to give signs of a change of front.
Tho Democrats are a little ahead in
making up their slato for the county
officers. Tho weather indicator now
points somewhat liko this:

On tho Republican ticket so far the
canvass shows that the following nre
willing to servo their country :

S. Ingalls; Hecorder, J. L. Kedondo;
District Attorney, Sam Purdy ; Assessor,
W. A. Werninger; Probate Judge, F. L.
Ewing; County Surveyor, L. A. Hicks;
Councilman, Abo Frank; Member of
Assembly, S. S. Gillispie.
As the prohibition party has only
ono follower in town, he has not as yet
mado up his ticket.
L. A. Hicks would probable bo nomi
nated for the assembly, only for the
fact that he is now county surveyor,
secretary of the prison, manager of tho
Yuma Times, chief engineer Yuma
Hights company and of the Caigo
Muchacho Mining company, U. S.
mineral snrveyor, and Bcveral other
minor positions nnd many think that
ho has onough, for the present at least.
The excitement in Yuma has quieted
down and peace reigns. Delegate 51. J.
Nugent has returned from the Chicazo
convention and explained all. He sayi.
that tho thing is all right. Cleveland
Is nominated and this satisfies them all.
Only ono question remains umolved,

question out of the politics of the Dem

On to Satton Sea rushes the mighty
waters of tho great Colorado river.
Ono day -during the flood Char
lie Theiaon, on old trapper and
prospector from Yunia, was seen, by
the aid of a glass, with his boat stuck
fast in tho mud, as tho water in the
lake was only two inches deep. Charlie
worked and tugged but no use. Ho
stopped to take a drink of water and
found it sailer than the sea. At once
he knew that ho must make for the
railroad, which he found was eight
miles away. On ho wont through the
soft mud and alkali soil in which he
sank nt every step nearly to his knees,
until ho reached friends near the rail
road nearly exhausted. After resting a
little he made his way to Salton.
Thcison left Yuma two months ago
for the Lower Colorado. Tho middle of
Juno ho started for Yuma via Sow
Uiver, Lako Julullu, the Padroues,
Carter and Colorado rivers, coming up
Keno river. He took the west branch
of that stream and pushed up to Black
Butte, where the water instead of run
ning toutheast to the gulf, turns and
runs northwest across the great level
valley towards Salton.
The great overflow of last year cut
two channels, as found by Engineers
Hawgood and Swaine of the Southern
Pacific company during their investi
gations of the Salton Hood.
J. S. Carter, who was out to Indian
Wells only a few days ago, says that
treat busin was rapidly filling with
water aud that tho water had been run
ning over tho divide for two months,
and also that on the 8th and 9th inst.
tho water fell threo feet all over the
overflowed country near his ranch,
which is at the divide. Col. D. K.Allen
who spent many months in a careful
examination nnd survey of all the coun
try from Hall Hanton's west to the
Sierre Madre above the divide and the
National boundary line, which crosses
it, is ot tne same opinion.
What the future will bo no one can
tell. All depends upon the denth of the
channel at the divide. I am told bv
Col. Allen that the top of the divide is
more than a hundred feet lower than
the surface of the river at tho crevice
in tho Colorado river, which gives the
water more than two feet fall to the
mile. If the channel cuts out deep
enough it can drain all the water off
from the basins from Alamo and Indian
Wells, besides what the Colorado sup
plies daily, which is estimated to be
more time one-half of its entiro volume.
The Colorado will take its old channel
and the water will all run off to the west
until the great basins are all filled, then
as beforo it will seek its way to the gulf
by tho way of New river and gradually
the bar will again form across the north"
em portion of tho valley and shut Sal
ton off as before. The water will evap
orate ond it will again beco'ine a salt
marsh as it was betore the channel was
cut through tho narrow divide last year.
But should u bar, which is possible,
form across the Caster river and turn
the bulk of the water into tho Colorado,
then Salton will only get well toaked
and the water will soon be gone. This
will probably be the result of tho pres
ent overflow into the ancient sea nt
