Spear's ab sence. The school election last Saturday re sulted in the election of Geo. H. Miles as trustee of District No. 1. The elec tion was very quiet. There were two Hnrlidates in the field. J. E. Devine and Mr. Miles, and the vote polled was small. Mr. and Mrs. D. A. Lindley of Sac ramento are still in the valley. Mr. Lindley is the owner of an extensive hog ranch in the Gila valley, near Mohawk and Palomas. Mr. Lindley is a gentlemau of means and enterprise. Just the sort of man whose interest in the community is most desirable. M. A. Martin, who has been at Ben son the past month, has returned to his desk as chief clerk in the S. P. freight office. Mr. Martin is one of the most j popular attaches on the Gila division and his many friends are pleased that he has returned. Helen, the little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Milton, died last Thursday evening at G o'clock and was buried on Friday afternoon in the Protestant cemetery. The bereaved parents have the sympathy of their many friends in the sad bereavement. Mrs. Herbert Brown gave a party at her residence on the hill last Thursday night in honor of her neice, Miss Pearl Sceley, of Tucson. Miss Seeley has been visiting Mrs. Brown for the past two weeks and has made friends of all who have met her. The Southern Pacific railroad com pany has just had completed the pit and foundation on which will be placed an immense tank to be filled with oil fo be used for fuel on engines. Tanks of the same capacity (one million gal. Ions) will also be put in at El Paso, Tucson and Lordsburg. Col. Charles Ballance, father of Ben. Burt Dunlap, arrived in Yuma last week from Peoria, 111. Col. Ballance is a man of wealth and his hobby is hogs. He has bought a large tract of land in the Colorado valley, which he intends to convert into a hog ranch, where the finest porkers will be raised for the market. Frank King, who is here from Tuc son attending court, made the Sentinel office a pleasant call last Friday. Frank used to be a newspaper man himself, having been at one time editor and pro prietor of the Nogales Yidette. He is out of the newspaper field now and is engaged in the real estate business in Tucson and we are pleased to learn he is making a financial success of it. The Arizona bakery and restaurant sells bread, pies and cakes, soda water, ice cream and ice cream soda and cold drinks. Serves all kinds of lunches, hot or cold as desired for 10c. and up.

Heffernan, cne of the direc tors of the Imperial Land Company, arrived in Yuma Tuesday evening, for the purpose of making arrangements for the reception and entertainment of the California editors, who will visit this locality next Monday and Tuesday. It is understood that the citizens of Yuma will co-operate with the officials of the land company in this matter, and to the end that the newspaper men may be hospitably entertained during their q visit in the city.

The Secret Service has unearthed another band of counterfeiters and se cured a large quantity of bogus bills, which are so cleverly executed that the average person would never sus pect them cf being spurious. Things of great value are always selected by counterfeiters fGi imitation, notably the celebrated Hostettcr's Stomach Bitters, which has many imitators but no equals fcr indigestion, dyspepsia, constipation, nervousness and general debility. The bitters sets things right in the stomach, and when the stomach is in good order, it makes good blood and plenty of it.

Thomas Hart, the slayer of Under Sheriff Matt. De Vane, has been con victed of murder in the first degree, and will be sentenced by Judge Street on Friday, April 5. The murder of Under Sheriff Dc Vane was cold-blooded, mereiless and unprovoked, and the verdict of the jury is righteous and just. Hart is an athletic, broad-shouldered man, with nerves of steel. In all prob ability his coolness will be maintained till the rope stretches his neck. $100 Reward, $100. The readers of this paper will be pleased to learn that there is at least one dreaded disease that science has been able to cure in all its stages, and that is catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only positive cure now known to the medical fraternity. Catarrh being a constitutional disease requires a con stitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken internally, acting direct ly upon the blood and mucous surfaces of the system, thereby destroying the foundation of the disease, and giving the patient strength by building up the constitution and assisting nature in doing its work.

Editors Coming to Yuma. j Next Monday night afc 10:30 p. m. some twentv-five of the editors of Cali fornia newspapers will arrive in Yuma from Los Angeles. The special object of their coming is to visit the heading of the Imperial canal and the land on the desert to be irrigated by this canal. This they will do and the impressions of what they observe will find expres sion in the papers they represent. But they will also devote considerable at tention to Yuma and its surroundings in the tributary valleys, notably, the Irrigation, Land and Improvement Company's canal, and the land -it cov ers. They will also visit Yuma Heights, the Fort Yuma Indian school, and per haps other places of interest to which their attention may be directed. Now, the coining of a lot of neigh boring newspaper men into a town is no unimportant matter for the town. It can be made advantageous or disad vantageousjust as you please. Yuma should "brush up" and receive these California pencil pushers "right roy ally." A collection of editors is just like the average human you treat them well and they will treat you well. As the city has no board of trade, the city council should take this matter in hand, and see that proper arrange ments are made for the reception and entertainment of the editorial visitors during their stay in Yuma. Following is the itinerary of the ex cursionists after reaching Yuma: On the morning of the 9th the party will take a steam launch down the Colorado river to the -head of the Im perial canal, and down the canal to the lower headgates, where lunch will be served, after which they will cress the river at Hanlon's, where carriages will meet the party and convey them up through the valley, taking in Yuma Heights and other points of interest, returning to Yuma in the evening where they will remain for the night. Tuesday morning the journey will be resumed and the party will take the train for Flowing Wells, where they will take breakfast and then take stages for the town of Imuerial.

Alexandria, Ind Future Stock Country of the Southwest. It embraces a million acres oi land accessible to the unlimited waters ot the Colorado river, including the Colo rado desert covered by the Imperial canal, the broad valley of the Colorado river extending 100 miles above Yuma and west to the Gulf of California. It is the home of alfalfa, hogs and cattle. It is no longer a question of its mere capabilities and future greatness; the facts are appreciated by the far seeing practical business men and capitalists of the country. The best and most en terprising have come to the scene of action and with the utmost confidence in the future financial results are in vesting their money by tens and hun dreds of thousands of dollars. The. Imperial canal, 40 by 100 feet, and length of 200 miles, on the north west side of the river; the Palomas col ony with its great canal, alfalfa fields, cattle and hog farms, seventy-five miles above Yuma; the Ludy canal; the Farmers' .canal, and American canal,for the benefit of Colorado valley and the lands south of the Mexican line to the gulf of California, and as evidence of confidence of the golden future of the country, citation is given to tne recent, acquisition of such business intellect as possessed by Col. Ballance and the Honorable Burt Dunlap. On Friday of last week two car loads of high-bred hogs arrived in Yuma for the Dunlap ranch, having been shipped direct from the great blooded stock farm of Finch & Sons, near Oxford, Ohio. The Dunlap ranch is a recent purchase by Hon. Burt Dunlap and his father-in-law, Colonel Ballance, late of Peoria, 111. These gentlemen propose to make it a model stock ranch, and as the shipment referred to above indi cates, they will go extensively into the business of raising blooded hogs, as well as cattle. The porkers from Ohio are Poland China and Duioj or Jersey Red, and are fine specimens of the ge nus swine, me uuniap rancn is an "E. W. Blaispell, Manager. The above, which was printed in the Sun last week, is a feeble attempt to de fend or extenuate the water company's almost criminal negligence as regards the so-called fire service as furnished to the city of Yuma, which every man, woman and child in the town knows has never been of any earthly accou nt in time of a fire. It will be noticed that Mr. Blaisdell does not attempt to deny the Sentinel's charge of the insufficiency of the water pressure at the recent fire, but attempts to throw the -responsibility for hy drants being clogged (with tar, mud, or what not) upon the "shoulders of the Yuma volunteer fire department. His statement that the hydrants are leased to and under the care of the fire de partment, and that it is their duty to see that the pipe lines and hydrants are flushed ' out and kept clear, is ab surd. The Yuma fire department is composed of a body of men who give their time and efforts to saving proper ty whenever there is a fire, absolutely free. They get no remuneration for their services, and we 'must 'say that when they have a chance they do no ble work, as was evidenced by the Post house fire. The contract for water service is between the company and the city of Yuma, and not with the volunteer fire department; and there is nothing in the charter requiring the city to flush the hydrant's, or keep the line clear cf mud, tar oiuvny other sub stance. Tlie yuma water unu uijjuu Company has contracted to furnish ef ficient fire service, and this duty as' a matter of course devolves upon that company. The trouble has always been with Mr. Blaisdell's water company that its great efficiency was always absent when a fire broke out,', but after the property was destroyed then the wa ter pressure was demonstrated to be ample. The fact that the pressure was sufficient the day after the fire to throw a stream over the moon might be interesting to the spectators, but mighty poor consolation to the fellows who were burned out the day before because there was no water pressure. The Sentinel could perhaps feel more charitable about the matter if the Post house fire was the first exhi bition of inefficiency on the part of the water company. But there are others. First the big fire on the west side of Main street, between First and Second, ahout three years aero. Thousands of dollars went up in smoke because there was no water, seeonu, tuu uuuuwio building burned and six persons per ished in the flames." No water. Third, in July, 1900, a whole block destroyed by fire on the east side of Main street. No water. Fourth, the recent Are, March 22nd, when two houses would have been burned instead of one had it not been for the Southern Pacific switch engine. For the manager of the Yuma Water and Light Company to insinuate that the Sentinel is unjust in its criticism is not the truth. The Sentinel is more inclined to praise than to criti cise. It always desires 'to give credit where it is due, and wonld be proud to chronicle the news thai; Yuma's water service was second to none in efficiency and would take great pleasure in doing so if the facts justified it; and we ear nestly hope both for the credit of the town and water company and for the sake of -lower rates of insurance and safety for property that we may yet be able to publish this as a happy truth. To show that the Sentinel is not alone in its criticism we would respect fully refer Mr. Blaisdell to the report of the late grand jury on this water question, and trust that the company will profit by reading it carefully. The Sentinel certainly has good cause for "criticism" of this company, because through its inefficiency, negli gence, or whatever it may be termed, the office has not only suffered in a fi nancial way, but also in the loss of in valuable records which money could not replace. Brush Up Your Yards and Lawns. Yuma is to have some twenty-five visiting newspaper men to entertain for a short time next Tuesday, and it is hardly necessary to say more than this as an inducement to property owners to polish up their front and back yards and brighten things generally, so that as favorable an impression as is possi ble to create will be made upon the editors, for obvious 'reasons. These gentlemen are coming here to see the country and will write their observa tion for their papers from the stand point of the impressions they receive. Let the impressions of Yuma be favor able ones. The Grand Jury. The grand jury made its filial report Monday and was discharged, having been in session for seven days. The report appears in this number of the Sentinel, and covers a great deal of ground which has heretofore been ne glected, or overlooked; but which is certain to result in good. Their re commendations, for further investiga tion into certain public affairs are timely, and shows that the jury was composed of men who have the welfare of the community at heart, both mor ally and financially. The jury was composed of representative men from different sections of the county and was one of the best ever empaneled. A great number of indictments were re turned for various offenses, and it is now up to the district attorney's office to .see that they are prosecuted.

News From Kofa. Kofa, Ariz., April 1,-1901 Everything has been unusually quiet in our most times lively camp for the nast month. Many of the" Miners have been leaving, alarmed for their gentle constitutions by reports of the fearful hot weather that is always going to come next week. We don't wish the boys any bad luck but a rolling stone never gathers moss you know and they may go farther and fare worse. Will Allen has been appointed deputy constable under Pete Burke, who has been too ill to attend to active duties lately. Reese Thomas, who was for a long time employed at Deep Well, came over from Dome Friday. Mr. Thomas has resigned his position as engineer with the C. D. M. & M. Co., and will accept a similar place at the Senator mine above the Pot Roles on the Colo rado river. Wherever he may go, "Poney" will find many friends. Miss Lottie Lewis reports only three more weeks of school for Kofa. It seems that a district with about forty five resident children of school age, might have a longer school term than we are getting. Constable Burke and family expect to leave early this week for the Agua Caliente hot springs for an extended stay. Mr. Burke has been very mis erable for some time past and it is to be hoped that the springs will do him good. Felix Mayhew and wife left for Yuma Saturday via Castle Dome.
