Recently it was stated that he had been directed to go to the Imperial valley and straight en out the land titles there- which eemed to involve almost everybody. It Is learned that he is making good progress and hopes with the aid of a ;-tenographer and other facilities to be able to finish his alignment about the first of July. A recent letter from him says he is getting along well and is quite busy, as may be judged from the fact that he interviews from fifty to sixty people every day on the sub ject of the local tribulations. It is un derstood he has been given special au thority to make a satisfactory adjust ment between the settlers and from the conditions as described by the Daily Free Lance, one of the papers of that valley, he will need all the authority he can get, and will still have trouble enough. The Free Lance says: "The Imperial land valley tangle, who hasn't heard o it, and who knows hoiv it happened, and how it is to be unraveled? It has been the nightmare of the investors, the enig ma of the land office officials, the annoyance of the settlers and the Joy of the land attorneys, ever since the work of reclaiming the Imperial val ley, erstwhile the Colorado desert, was begun.

FRANCIS Cor. 2nd & Wash. Sts. Elvey Sl n i m 1 1 1 m i n i n m 1 1 1 h i f in 18S6, and discovered by the sur veyors of the Imperial Lend company in 1900, was sought to be remedied by congress with a resurvey, after Jt was too late, in 1902. "The alleged survey of 1858. prob ably made on paper in the back room of some saloon in Yuma, was accept ed by Uncle Sam as the gospel truth so far as land locations are concerned. When the locators could not make an actual survey tally with a paper one, they were told from Washington that they must do so. Some of them did try", notably, near Brawley, where the whole community filed applications to amend, seeking to slide their 'survey one mile south and two miles west. But it was no go, they only got in conflict with their neighbors and had to abandon the attempt. Meantime, practically all the valley had been filed on i;i one way and another. The land office people insisted that filings must be made by their maps, regard less of the well known fraudulent character of the alleged survey they were supposed to represent. The people could not do otherwise than locate their lands by the survey made on the land by the Imperial Land com pany , Sunset Commercial company, Imerial Investment company and private parties who made surveys from the corners set for them. Thus the Imperial valley land tangle was made. "In 190::, congress, under urgent clamor from the valley people, passed a law for t resurvey, and in due and deliberate process of time the same has been made. This resurvey, how ever, instead of clarifying the situa tion has added to its difficulties. In stead of adopting the lines of the sur veys by which the lands were located, the surveyors in their wisdom estab lished new lines totally different from any to be iound in the valley. In this way it is rendered impossible to di vide any tract into equal parts, as halves or quarters, because the subdi visions of the new survey do not per mit of it. It is wholly impossible for the people to locate their ranches cor rectly by the new survey. That is par ticularly true in the case of entries made since March 31. 1906. Numerous cases have arisen where two parties have entered 160 acres each, side by side, and now when they come to ad just their tracts find that one has to take 180 acres and the other 140. Kach have mad-i their improvements and the new lines don't suit either party, but the land effice makes it obligatory upon them to adopt the new 'official' lines. "Another feature is the new law, passed March 3 1909. for the sale of isolated tracts, and providing that all tracts less than ten chains in width shall be sold to the present owners of the abutting lands, and that each abutting land owner shall have the right to buy half of the lot. In many cases these lots are all within the tract claimed by one owner, and are made by the surveyors In carrying out their scheme of resurvey on different lines to those employed by the settlers. It will undoubtedly cause somebody to tangle' when the other abutting owner buys half of a man's barn yard and peach orchard. "Mr. Satterwhite has tackled these problems with all the enthusiasm of -a true westerner, and with the ability derived from -many years' experience, and if the people interested will be fair with each other, his work will be both pleasant and effective. It will be ef fective anyway, for he has the au thority to make it so, but it is up to the people to be patient with each oth er and not try to take more than they are entitled to, even if the new survey does try to give it to them. "It is thus apparent that with all the aid the government can give. It re mains largely with the people them selves to untangle the Imperial valley land tangle." ....

WORK WILL COMMENCE THIS MORNING ON EAST MAIN General Building Revival Begun in East Part of Town. Several New Residences. The contract for the corrugated iron warehouse. 120x50 feet has been let to W. A. Burton and work will com mence this morning. The building is to be located on the skirt lot belong ing to the LeSueur addition fronting Main street und immediately south of the Mesa Milling company's plant. This building will be used exclusively for the storage of hay and in con nection with it public scales will be installed. It is entirely probable that the grocery warehouse which will be erected in a short time will ulso be located on the lot Immediately N south of the one to be occupied by the hay warehouse. While the l.ications are made tin. more valuable on account of being oh the main road and the railroad as well, it will In no wise become the warehouse district. Mr. LeSueur has his own residence located in the block to the west and has also sold off a good many of the lots to prospective home builders. Right at "tbe present time the east end of town is building up with more rapidity than any other section. Al bert Coplin is erecting a four room frame residence on a lot recently purchased from O. S. Stapley and immediately south of his residence. The lot Immed lately north of the Stapley residence in the LeSueur ad dition has been sold to Mr. Notley of the firm of Wheems & Notley and will erect a splendid cottage this fall. The contractors are already well on the way with a house for Llde Pom eroy which is also In the LeSueur addition. The foundation is complet ed for the seven room concrete house to be immediately erected for Geo. Ellsworth. PLANS OE THE QUEEN VALLEY CO. MATURING THE STANDARD DRILLING RIG TO BE ORDERED THE FIFTENTH OF THIS MONTH The Township Filled With Home steaders May be Resurveysd Soon That the plans for brinsing the lands in the vicinity of Queen creek and Higley under a high state of cultivation regardless of the reclama tion service and the Roosevelt dam seems to look more like a certainty than for a good many years. While there are a good many de tails to be worked out in the bring ing to a successful culmination of the irrigation scheme yet every day is seeing more men signify their opinion of the plan by subscribing for stock. 'the general plar. as is generally so, has l-een discredited, but whi-n it is known that no le-s than twenty-five men from California who are from a district where watr is pumped even fion, a greater depth than that al Queen creek, are allying themselves with the project, it at least has the appearance of being worth serious consideration. However, regardless of any minor obstacles the plans are being furthered regularly and stead ily. The drill which is to be a standard rig will be ordered the I5th of tlvj present month and it is anticipated that it will commence active opera tions no later than August 1st. The wells are to all be sixteen inches in diameter. The latest proposition Is to get a survey of the township in which the greatest number of claims are located which is township 2 S and It. 6 E. Over seventy-five homesteads have been taken in this township and all of them not under any canal what ever. In this connection it might be well to make public a circular issued by the surveyor general of the terri tory which is as follows: It is a matter of general interest to prospective applicants for the sur vey of public lands that congress an nually appropriates the sum of 3400, 00') for the survey and re-survey of the public lands of the United States, which sum is apportioned among thirteen western states and territories according to the requirements of these respective districts. : Under existing law, the expenditure of tne annual appropriation for pub lic surveys is restricted, first, to lands occupied in whole or in part by ac tual settlers on the public domain, and, second, to lands adapted to agri culture. It will therefore be seen that the applications of actual bona fide settlers will be given preference In the matter of authorizing the surveys of townships. . In making application for the sur vey of public lands, the applicant 5TO-NIGBT .

In order to secure the survey of a full township and the quickest possible action by this office In awarding a contract, it would be ad visable for the applicant to have two or more other settlers who are living within the same township make si milar applications for survey. Public land surveys, payable from the regular annual appropriation, are made without cost to the settler, the government paying all expenses in connection therewith. Further Instructing relative to the method of procedure in the matter of securing the survey of public lands will be cheerfully given in reply to communications requesting specific information.

ARMORY MEETING Plan on Foot to Erect a Building for Company D, A. N. G. The members of company D met last night in the armory hall in re sponse to an order by Captain J. B. Nelson. There Is a plan on foot for the erection of an armory building. The idea is to rather make the arm ory a club room where the boys may congregate and amuse themselves in a legitimate way. It is believed that this will increase the interest in the militia and be the means of putting a premium on a service In the order. The plan is a commendable one and should have the support of the citi zens. EMPLOYMENT AGENCY As will be seen by Grover's ad in today's issue he has decided to main tain an employment agency. There is no reason but why an institution of this nature cannot be made of great help to the ranchers as well as the man dropping in here and out of work. The idea is to have a list of the ranchers that are needing help, or for instance if a farmer expects to Ladles' Tan Calf Button Oxford, welt sole, fancy pearl buttons and brown ooze top, tip toe, Cuban heel.
