OI? YUMA COUNTY PIONEER PAPER' OP ASIZONA 8 INEL "Independent In all things. " Yuma, Arizona The Gate City of the Great Southwest VOL. 41 - YUMA. ARIZONA. THURSDAY. MAY 4. 1911. NO. 27 Cultivate Small Farms Too many acres is the draw back, and upon a principle like that entirely too many farmers are conducting their business. They are trying to produce on two acrers of land what might better be produced on one. If such a principle will bankrupt a manufacturing concern, how can a farmer expect to prosper by applying it? Farming is not a calling in which "main strength and awk wardness" are factors. It is not an industry that affords a large aggregate crop by half cultivat ing a large acreage. On the other hand, in farming, as in all callings, it is intelligence that counts and will count to an in creasing degree in the future while .slipshop, wasteful and in efficient methods are and w'll continue to be increasingly ata discount. It is advised that a small farm well tilled is to its owner's ad vantage. This brings up the question; What is meant by a small farm? .Necessarily this does not mean any particular number of acres. The whole phrase, "a little farm well tilled" Is inseparable, and if not separ ated ;a little farm" defines it self. A farm is not too large if it is thoroughly tilled, tfnd every acre made to do Its best. Any size farm Is too large when it is beyond the ability X)f the owner, In labor or capita -or both, to till it well.

Loses 2,000,800 Acres Portland (Ore.), April 24. Federal Judge Charles Wolver ton decided today in favor of the Government every contention made in its answer to the demur rer of the Southern Pacific Com pany in the so-called "O. & C." land grant cases. If this decis ion be sustained by the United States Supreme Court, land in Oregon valuecfcat from $50,000, 000 to i$75,000,000 will revert to the Government and probably will be opened to settlers. In 1866 Congress granted to the Oregon Central Railway Company a tract through the heart of Oregon, comprising what is now some of the richest agricultural and most valuable timber land in the State. The consideration for the grant was an agreement to construct a rail way north and south over what is now the Southern Pacific's Oregon division of the Shasta route.

Some new and very rich placer grounds have been found there recently. There was a rush for that district as soon as the find became known, but the better part of the ground had already been sold to California people, who are now making prepara tions to put machinery on the holdings. They now have about ten men at work. The Dignowitys and associates have just finished the surveying and location work on their prop erty around Quartzsite, m the Chollas and around Middle Camp. They have bought and located something like 10,000 acres of placer and quartz ground in the district. There is a great deal of activ ity in the placer fields at New water. Two or three big east ern outfits have bought in there and are getting ready to put in large plants. M. J. McCarthy and George Rohpeter of Prescott, who re cently bought the Farrar gulch property, are getting a diamond drill to test all of their claims. Mr. McCarthy is in Chicago at present, where he has interested some eastern capitalists. He expects to return shortly with them. Do Ghosts Haunt Swamps? No. Never.

Gulf Has Shrunk A map of California published in 1626, by the geographer to the King of France, shows the Gulf of California as extending along the entire eastern bound ary of the State and connecting with the Pacific Ocean at Puget Sound. The map was made from drawings and accounts furnished by the early navigators. While it is certain that the Gulf of Cal ifornia never extended to the Puget Sound country it surely did extend very far north of its present boundary. Fifty years ago the Indians of the Colorado desert told bow their fathers had told them at some period in the past a ship was to be seen par tially buried in the drifting sands where the Salton Sea now cov ers the land. This bears out the statement that the gulf extended far north of its present bound ary and was navigable to some extent.

H. Ramsey, the Yuma barber, was indicted upon two charges, one under the White Slave Act and the other for a breach of the Edmunds Act the specific charge being that Ramsey had induced Carrie Ry an, a girl sixteen years of age to become an inmate of a house of ill fame in Gila street', Yuma, and for a further violation of the Edmunds Act, growing out of the same facts. The attorney for the defense demurred to the indictment under the White Slave Act, contending that the girl had not been transported to said house of ill fame in a com mon carrier conveyance as spe cificall required under said White Slave Act. Judge Campbell sus tained the demurrer. Ramsey was tried under the charge of violating the Edmunds Act and convicted. Judge Campbell will impose sentence before adjourn ment of court, the minimum pen alty being six months imprison ment. This is the case that attracted considerable attention in Yuma last January, when Attorney Molloy, at the instance ot United States District Attorney Joseph. Morrison, instituted proceedings against Ramsey for inducing the above-mentioned girl to enter a house of ill fame in the redlight district. The girl had been in Yuma but a few weeks and was a waitress at the Stage Cafe. Attorneys Morrison and Mol loy made a test in this case un der the White Slave Act to de termine the intent of the law, as to whether it makes a difference as to the manner in which a girl is taken to a house of ill fame. The decision of Judge Campbell is in effect that if the girl is tak eng in a conveyance used as a public carrier such, act is a vio lation of the law, but if a pri vate conveyance is used, or if the parties walk, to said house of prostitution the guilty party can not be convicted under the White Slave Act.
