July 19 the engine was run to its full j
capacity for eight and one-half hours
of pumping. The three wells were
pumped simultaneously after the air
pressure was balanced, and the actual
weir measurement showed a flow of
102.9 inches from the three wells. The
water levels average,] 100 feet in the
three well* at the end of the test. As
these wells are 275, 325 and 335 feet deep,

Mr. Clark, being questioned as to the
probable cost of the Darby, replied
that cost is a secondary consideration
—that no expense will be spared in
making it a model hotel apartment in
every particular, and that nothing will
be omitted which will add to the com
fort and convenience of guests.

Picnic Party
Beaumont, the thriving fruit growing
colony In Riverside county, commem
orated its second anniversary Monday,
August 2, with a homeseekers' day cel
ebration, in which over 800 persons
from Beaumont and Los Angeles par
ticipated. Most of these were persons
who have bought Beaumont property
from the Beaumont Land and Water
company, through whose efforts the
town and valley have been successful
ly developed.
A striking feature of the celebration
was a parade nearly a mile long that
started from the postofflce at 10
o'clock, and for three 'moved In
and through the ranches in the valley.
Nearly every vehicle In the district
was put into service, and the Beaumont
band, a strictly home product, headed
the procession.
Participants in the parade were given
an opportunity to get face to face with
the extensive agricultural and building
development that has taken place In
the past two years on the lands lying
I between the townsite and the foot
hills en the north. This property,
which was two years ago only dry
farmed grain land in undivided par
cels of from 1000 to 2000 acres, has now
been subdivided Into five and ten aero
plots, piped with steel and cement
mains conveying water to each piece
and connected with the town by streets
sixty feet wide and over twenty miles
long. Fully forty houses have recently
been erected where there were no
bouses before, and Improvements made
by the new linmoseekcrs aggregating
in value fully $100,000.
Three hours were consumed in tin
inspection of the lands, and at 1
o'clock the parade reached the artesian
shaft in Edgar canyon above Mellen'a
ranch, where the pumps were started
and a demonstration made of the
heavy flow of water, amounting to over
150 miners' inches. Afterward a drive
was made down Edgar canyon to thu
picnic grounds, where a fine lunch was
provided by the land company. Eight
een hundred sandwiches, thirty gallon.*
of Ice cream, 300 pounds of cake and
100 gallons of coffee were required to
feed the guests.
Speeches In the Canyon
After dinner speeches were made by
j C. B. Eyer, on behalf of the land com
pany, followed by State Senator Miguel
Est iidillo. who delivered the principal
address of the day. . Father I* P.
Golden. Rev. Herbert Espy, Judge
Watson and Supervisor A. B. Kimball
of Riverside county also spoke. Each
of the speakers commended the won
derful resources of the district and the
commendable efforts of the officers of
the land, company, C. B. Eyer, K. it.
Smoot and John D. Heavls, who during
the past two years had devoted their
time and attention to the development
of water and lands.
Following the speaking the new
Twentieth Century air lift pumping
plant of the water company .was put
Into operation and the three deep
drilled wells nearby pumped to their
capacity. A column of water seventy
feet high was forced from well No. 3
when the air was first turned on, and
a normal flow ten feet high maintained
for over three hours. The test showed
a capacity of over 120 miners' inches
from the two wells.
Steps are now being taken to per
petuate homeseekers' day by making it
an annual affair on August 2 each
year. A meeting will he held at Beau
mont this week to discuss the ques
tion, at which definite action will be
taken.
