George W. McCaulley, one of the
Valley's earliest pioneers, died at Im
perial at 3 o'clock a. m, last Wednes
day morning, October 24th. Mr. Mc-
Caulley had been ailing for several
months, but no one supposed he was
In a serious condition. So when his
death was announced naturally the
community was very much shocked.
An inquest was held Wednesday after
noon and It was clearly established
that death was from natural causes.
Mr. McCaulley was a 'typical pioneer
and In the early days operated a hotel
at Flowing Well and a stage line to
this Valley. The advent of the rail
road put an end to that, so he . moved
to Imperial and ran the Commercial
Hotel for a time. This he traded for
ranch property, which he has improved
and very recently proved up on. He
was a native of Mississippi and num
bers among his relatives some of the
most prominent citizens of that State.
Ho leaves a wife but no other family.

Several of the settlers along New
river have filed their "damage claims
against the Mexican government.
Their ranches were washed away by
the flood waters during the time from
May. 1905. to June. 1906. The first
eleven claims filed totaled $51,650
and there are sever*! hundred parties
who are entitled to damages. It Is ex
pected that claims aggregating more
than a million dollars will be filed with
in the next two or three months.
Quite a large number of people are
coming Into the valley now, and the
evening trains are generally quite
crowded. A good many of these are
new comers looking for a location,
while there are a great many who were
here a year or two ago, and who left
at the beginning or early In the water
troubles. These people have found
that Imperial Valley offers the best in
ducements of any place in the country,
and are coming back to take advantage
of them. The certainty of the early
closing of the intake and control of the
water makes the present a most op
portune time to invest In our valley.
The result of the meeting of the
Brawley Cantaloupe Growers' Associa
tion last Monday is Interpreted to mean
a victory for Lyon and the proposition
of turning over the cantaloupe crop to
him to sell on commission and control
as he sees fit. A majority of the board
of directors^lected are said to be Ly
on men and the' control of the associa
tion is In their hands. There is known
to be very deep dissatisfaction at this
outcome, however, and another associ
ation at Brawley is reported as alto
gether probable. There is a very strong
feeling in favor of the federation plan
of marketing the crop and a determin
ed effort will be made at the meeting
at Brawley next Monday to bring this
about. There are powerful influences
at work In this matter and the people
can just as well control their own can
taloupes as to turn them over to Lyon.
