of 2Smiles to the Mission Fathers. In
1S69 the city annexed 1.20 square
miles. Since then more than 300
square miles have been added and Los
Angeles has been changed from an in
land city to a seaport through the an
nexation of a narrow strip of land
connecting the city with ' the Pacific
Ocean at San Pedro.
The lagrest single annexation of
territory was on June 14 last year,
when 169.89 square miles were added.
This territory, with an area more than
six times the size of the original city,
was annexed to provide for the dispo
sition of the surplus water from a
$25,000,000 aqueduct, completed about
a year ago.
"REMOVE SILT, OR IT
WILL MOVE IMPERIAL"
The Calexico Chronicle says:
"I wish you would make the follow
ing statement for me," said Director
C. W. Brockman, of the Imperial Irri
gation district, yesterday, in comment
ing upon the action of the mutual rep
resentatives in selecting Chester Alli
son as consulting engineer, at their
meeting in Imperial.
"When Mr. Allison went on the job
as engineer before, the Alamo canal
would carry from the river 120,000
cubic feet; and when he went off the
job it would not carry 3,500 cubic feet
without spilling over the bank.
"The Imperial Irrigation District has
done more dredging in the last sixty
days than Mr. Allison did in the last
"If Holabird had held his job six
months longer we would not have
domestic water in here today.
'When I went on the district board
I made the statement that I expected
to see clear water running down the
canals. If we do not get clear water
we will not get any.
"We must either remove the silt, or
the silt will remove us."
THE BEST LAXATIVE
To keep the bowels regular the best
laxative is outdoor exercise. Drink a
full glass of water half an hour before
breakfast and eat an abandai?cu of
fruit and vegetables, also esiubiisii a

bowels move once each da. When
a medicine is needed take Chamfctr

upon Imperial valley coming to La

Yuma valley farmers be palced on the
It is now given out in Washington
that NEVER AGAIN will a dam be
permitted to be constructed across the
Colorado at that point, and that being
the case, we don't care a tinker's darn

(By. B. F. ,Fly)
The El Centro Progress
and the Imperial Press are
having a lot of fun with each
other regarding present con
ditions in Imperial valley, and
particularly with regard to
the present "water shortage,"
the Press claiming that the
shortage is the result of mis
management of district af
fairs this mismanagement
being attributed to incompe
tence on the part of Chief
Engineer Rockwood, aided
and abetted by a majority of
the board of directors.
The Progress, recognized
as the mouthpiece of the di
rectors and chief engineer,
charges that The Press is the
mouthpiece of those who
favor connecting Imperial
valley with the Yuma project,
thereby forever solving the
questions of a "water short
age," and at the same time
largely settle the vexatious
In the course of a lengthy tirade
against those who favor connecting
these two great irrigation systems,
The Progress of Tuesday's issue takes
occasion to mix me up with the dis
cussion by asserting that "the re
callers (meaning those who have be
gun recall proceedings against Presi
dent Hamilton and another Director)
have been employing Benjamin F. Fly
to speak. ' Fly writes all the articles
for the Yuma papers and brought
about the injunction more than any
other one man."
I make this reply to my editorial
friend of The' Progress merely in order
to see if he wants to be set exactly
right, and if so, he will at least be fair
enough to retract his unwarranted
statement. Here 'tis:

The expenses of the trip did not cost
a single cent to anybody in the Im
perial valley. The speeches Mr. Win
sor and I made before a highly appre
ciative and intelligent audience, did
not cost the people of Imperial valley
a single cent. No fee fcs offered; no
fee was demanded, and no fee, bonus,
gift, loan or anything would have been
accepted had it, any, or all of them
been offered. It was purely a matter
of neighborly friendship that we made
the trip at our expense, just that and
absolutely nothing else.
Neither of us had ever heard of "re
call" petitions being started, until it
was announced from the platform af

reference was made to it in my re

present light I think a good work has
been well begun, and hope to see it
carried to a successful conclusion.
When an elective body of directors
must cover their official acts with a
cloak of secrecy it is just about time
that the cloak be torn into threads
that the light of day maf shine on
every official act the directors have
imposed on their constituents.
An honest official has absolutely
nothing to fear at the hands of pub
licity. It is only those whose acts will
not stand investigation that desire

The' Press, and make 'em take the
