R. D. McPhcrrin, secretary of Impe*
| rial Water Co. No. 1 this week sent out
the following slip to those stock hold*
era of the company who had not yet
given their written consent to the pro
posed change of the principal place of
business of the company from LosAn
gelese to Imperial. The stock holders
should sign the slip the secretary sends
them, and thereby give their consent,
as it is certainly better to have the
companys headquarters here:
Dear Sir: — I wish to call your atten
tion to the enclosed slip which was
mailed to you some time ago, request
iug your written consent to the propo
sed change of the principal place of
business of Imperial Water Company
No. 1 from Los Angeles to Imperial.
The stock holders present at the annu
al meeting strongly recommended this
change on the ground that the officers
and board of directors were residents
of Imperial and the holding of the
monthly b>ard meeting at Los Ange
les was an added and useless expense
to the company.
While the Mock of the company was
being placed on the market by the Cal
ifornia Development Comprny it seem
ed advisable to have the principal place
of business in Los Angeles, but now
ihat the stuck hoiders are in "control of
affairs ot the company, the best and
most economical administration of the
business of the company, demands that
thee iiiiptin v.i headqu. nters ne at Im
penal r.ither than in L >s Aui»eies
1 trust \oii will siyii t lie eiiCl* sed slip
indicating ymr consent >o th«* change
and return 'lie same to me at once.
