BUYS ANOTHER THEATRE.
Manager Johan Johansen of the Yu
Ma and Casino Theatres in Yuma and
the theatre in Somerton, has reached
out and purchased the best moving
picture house in Imperial. He bought
the latter last week and intends to
make it as popular in Imperial as are
his show houses here in Yuma county.
Mr. Johansen is recognized by the film
world as one of the best men in the
business. He has a string on all the
first class pictures that are shown in
the large cities of the west, in fact
Yuma has the unique distinction of
being the only city of its size that can
get the high class pictures shown by
Manager Johansen. He will doubtless
be able to transfer many of these high
class pictures to his new theatre in
Imperial city, and the people of that
place will very soon note the differ
ence In the class of pictures they will
see, compared to those heretofore
shown In the Imperial Valley. I don't
know what the present prices are in
Imperial, but it is safe to say Man
ager Johansen will give them better
pictures for less money than they have
ever before enjoyed.

I also received the copy of the
"Arizona Sentinel" and thank you for
your courtesy in sending it.
Mr. Taylor has not yet been able
to turn over your negative to us for
printing on account of the titles. He
is attending to them, though, and up
on receipt of the negative complete
with titles, we shall endeavor to make
your print in less than the specified
week so as to delay you just as little
as possible. With kind regards,
Yours very Truly,
IT PAYS TO ADVERTISE.
If there is a single business man in
Yuma who is laboring under the er
roneous idea that he can make a for
tune without advertising he should
have attended the theatrical perform
ance at the Yuma Theatre last Satur
day night, when Cohan & Harris mas
terpiece, "It Pays To Advertise," was
presented. It was the first real try
out the new Yuma Theatre had under
gone with a first class company of ar
tists, and Manager Johansen must
have been greatly pleased over the
many complimentary things said
about his new playhouse. That "it
pays to advertise" was demonstrated
to the entire satisfaction of every
one of the large and appreciative au
dience who were kept convulsed with
laugther from start to finish.

' YUMA ICE COMPANY.
Yuma Commercial Club Has a New Secretary
Secretary L. W. Alexander, who for the past several
years has been the efficient and painstaking secretary of
the Yuma County Commercial Club, tendered his resigna
tion to that organization two weeks ago, and after several
hours of debate the resignation was accepted at last Fri
day's meeting, W. J. Woolverton being unanimously select
ed to fill out the unexpired term.
That the new secretary will make an ideal official there
seems no room for doubt. He is one of the most popular
men in Yuma, has had large experience with the world and
is an all-round booster for Yuma and Yuma county, a very
essential qualification for the thankless job he has accepted.
The retiring secretary is so well and favorably known
in Yuma, and for that matter all over the country, that it
would be only a waste of time to tell of his many qualifica
tions for the office he has just surrendered. The new secre
tary will find that the position carries great responsibilities
with it He will be damned if he does and damned if he
and within five days the water had been reduced eight or
ten feet, which conclusively shows that the canal will do
the work for which it was intended. In other words "water
will seek its level" and inasmuch as the bed of the canal is
ten feet below the land surface it naturally follows that the
seepage water will find its way to the bottom of the canal,
and then be carried out of the valley by means of the pump
ing system located at the lower end of the canal.
Bridges are being erected at every section line crossing,
making these bridges one mile apart. They are being quite
substantially made and will answer every purpose of the val
ley farmers for years to come. Later along it is possible that
intervening bridges may be constructed across the big
canal, but at present it is thought one every mile will an
swer all legitimate purposes.
ARMY NEWS AND NOTES
(Continued From Page One)
McMillan, by two of Governor Cantu's soldiers last Sunday
week have been located in Andrade and it is more than prob
able they will be returned to their owners as soon as Gov
ernor Cantu can be communicated with. The soldiers stout
ly deny that they took any cash from McMillan, though they
admit he had the money on his person. McMillan as stout
ly maintains that he was relieved of $550 in cash. However,
he has made a solemn promise that the next time he ven
tures across the boundary line he will leave both gun and
money on the American side.
The best game of baseball seen in Yuma for many a
long day was the regularly scheduled local league game that
was played last Sunday between the Second and Third Bat
talion teams. It had all along been supposed that the Sec
ond Battalion team was unbeatable, in fact they have been
having all sorts of fun among themselves telling each other
what they would do to the Third Battalion boys when they
met them. They had the chance in this last game and to
their utter astonishment the Third Battalion boys made
mince meat out of them, nor can this be attributed to the
fact that Captain Bussche of the Third Battalion was one of
the umpires, for there were no real close decisions. It was a
clean cut, out-and-out beat, the like of which the Second
Battalion boys never before run up against. The final score
was 8 to 2.
The principal features of the game were Brink's pitch
ing and Quackenbush s throwing from the plate to second
base, nailing three speed boys who thought they could steal
the second sack. Engle's clever playing at third was also a
big feature. He threw Craven, the fastest man in the regi
ment, out at first twice on difficult play, which -made the
Third Battalion bovs veil themselves hoarse. Lieutenant
Bradley's playing at first was real big league stuff, particu
larly his catching apparently impossible throws to him, and
when he nailed Craven at third.
For a few minutes in the last inning it looked like the
Second Battalion boys might start something. They got
three fine drives, and Brink begun to think they had solved
his curves. But it was only a flash in the pan. The next
game between these two teams should draw a big crowd, for
as the boy say, it will be a humdinger.
Following was the line-up:
