Entered as second-class matter March 3d,
1906 at the postofficeat El Centro. California,
toder the Act of Conpress of March 3, 1879.
Imperial has got the buttons
and El Centro has the votes.
Inasmuch as "yours truly Clark
H. Bradshaw, Sec'v." writes
garbled figures and Howe prints
them, it was not unnatural to
suppose that the worthless check
was part of the campaign scheme.
Anyway we simply asked, How(e)
The Imperial push and the
slandard made the assertion that
El Centro made promises which
were broken at the convention.
Will .they please tell what prom
ises were made, who were the
promises made to and when. We
are anxious to know. Unless
they tell us we will have to con
clude that these statements of
theirs are lies, like the rest of
the statements they are making.
Come forth, push, and speak;
don't just merely make general
statements. Be more specific.
COUNTY S EAT COMMENTS
So many sections are represent
ed on the ticket named at the
nominating convention that it
will be pretty hard for Imperial
to wean away any votes for can
, didates of its own — and the pro
gramme is said to be so well fixed
for El Centro as the county seat
that it hardly can fail to carry. —
Los Angeles Times.
Imperial seems to be hopelessly
behind in the race for the county
seat, unless some break appears
in the serried ranks of her rivals.
— San Diego Union.
Clark H. Bradsbaw is out in a
lengthy article trying to over
come the worthless check inci
dent. It's a fine thing for him
to accuse anyone else of things
he cannot prove, but when he
himself is brought face to face
with the facts it hurts. Like
one Imperial man said: ''It's
the truth that hurts in this cam
paign against Imperial." As
for Mr. Bradshaw, he knew he
was doing wrong when he lent
himself to do the work for the
Imperial campaign committee
and that he should get come up
with is not to be wondered at.
Would it not be -a mistortune
and loss to every farmer in this
great and ferile valley to locate
the county seat on soil that can
not produce trees, shrubs, fruits
and vegetables such as are now
growing at Brawley, Calexico.
Holtville and El Centro? Ac
cept the evidence of your own
observation as to soil and condi
tions in preference to statements
published in newspapers and in
preference to what the other fel
low tells you.
It's really funny to bear Howe
explode when things don't go
just as the push has it programed
There's yet some room left in
the El Centro Band Wagon.
Climb in brother and you'll lead
One Imperial merchant has al
ready begun to unload his stock
of goods. He advertises that he
is going to move. His destina
tion, however, has not as yet
been made public.
Why i 9it that everything
which is not done by the consent
of the Imperial push is all wrong
according to the Standard. Is
it to be supposed that the people
themselves have no rights?
Don't forget that W. S. Cor
win and Stone Bros, are both
shipping grapes from El Centro
in caiload lots. Our union de
pot is not as convenient as it
might be but our packing sheds
are O. K.
Send your laundry to El Cen
tro. The steam laundry will be

menced on some of the build
ings that Imperial is to have, if
Howe is to be depended on for
once in his editorial existence.
Rev. Wentworth can't expect
to be chairman of every meeting-.
The convention at Imperial was
representative of the whole val
ley. That'll be all right Mr.
Wentworth, wait until Imperial
packs somebody's meeting and
thea you can be chairman.
Imperial's duplicity is becom
ing more apparent every day.
Just before the primaries of last
Saturday as high as twenty ri£s
went out from Imperial in all di
lections. The game was to try
and influeuce everything in favor
of Imperial. The Imperial push
believed the people would not
take much interest in the selec
tion of delegates to the conven
tion and imagined that by some
political trickery they would be
able to have such delegates as
were favorable to .Imperial's
cause elected to the convention.
In every town they had their
"slate"' prepared, but it failed to
go through. The push at Imper
ial has always tried to carry
things witb such a high hand,
that the entire valley has come
to look upon any more they
make with suspicion.

A story told of an Imperial
man who now and then aspires to
be chairman of political meet
ings. According to the story
Imperial had this certain man
slated to be chairman of the con
vention and he was so sure of
being chairman that he had pre
pared a very appropriate speech
for the occasion, the notes of
which he lost on the floor of the
hall. From the notes it appears
he was going to turn loose a cer
tain brand of eloquence which
the Standard said atone time he
could uncork when he chose.
Too bad that all that prepara
tory effort was lost, and if the
delegates knew just what they
missed they would certainly be
sorry for what they did.
If "Yours truly, Clark H. !
Bradshaw, Secy.' 1 would pay a
little more attention to his per
sonal finances and get out and
make a little money to pay his
honest debts with instead of is
suing checks which are returned
by his home bank as n. gl.,g 1 ., read
ers of his juggled figures might
put a little more weight in what
he says. A secretary of an exe
cutive committee of a town that
wants to be county seat whose
credit at his home bank is not
worth twice six bits, will cut only
a small chunk of ice in influenc
ing votes for the town in which
he lives and for which he is work
ing. And how about the com
mittee which keeps him in the
place he occupies?
If their campaign 'tund for cor
ruption purposes is not yet ex
hausted the Imperial committee
might spare a dollar and a halt
or so to take up their secretary's
