The Imperial push were so tickled with the Dooley' dialogue in the Stand ard last week/that after carefully fram ing up things with the boss in San Di ego they went to sleep at the switch and lost a supervisor About one more Dooley article and the 'Imperial business men will be ready to throw up the sponge. . J. M. Witman, of Imperial has an nounced that lie will make the run for the office of county cleik on an inde pendent ticket. He did not seek the nomination at the hands of the conven tion and had made up Imh mind before the convention convened to make the run. Mr. Witman has been in the hardware and tinning business in Im perial for the past four years and id well known throughout the valley. Before he came to Imperial he was acting uoat master at Oxnard for fourteen months. In another column of this Issue will be found the announcement of H. N.

Laundry Walls are Up Contractor Peterson finished the brick work on the new steam laundry last Wednesday The lumber Is al ready on the ground to build the roof and as the floors had already been put In, It will not be long now before the building will be ready to receive the machinery and by fall early the laundry will be in operation. It was the In tention of the builders to make this laundry large enough to accommodate all the towns of the. valley for some time and being located at the junction of the railroads as it is. It will be handy for all parts of the valley. The ma chinery to be placed Is of the very lat est type and the work done here will be up to the highest standard in every particular. The building Itself Is a very fine and Imposing one and would do credit to any town In Southern Cal ifornia.

Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy Would have Saved Him $100.00 •' In 1602 I had a very severe attack of diarhoea," cays R. N. Farrar of Cat Island, La. "For several weeks I was unable to do anything. On March 18, 1907, I had a similar attack, and took Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarroea Remedy, which gaye me prompt relief. I consider it one of the best medicines of its kind in the world, and had I used it in 1902 believe it would have saved me a hundred dollar doctor's bill." Sold by £1 Oentro Drug Store. The Standard is still building the San Diego and Eastern railroad through Imperial. It has been sug gested that Howe study his geography a half hour and learn that Carrisa creek and Carnssa canon are not the same. Howe is trying to make people believe the route of the road comes* down Carrlsa creek. He knows the, road will not be built until after the vote Is taken on the county seat matter, and after that he don't care where the road goes but Just now its an object If he can fool the people Into believing the road will go through Imperial. It never will. The route of the San Dtego and Eastern follows the Carrlsa canon and that Is qu'te a little south of west of Imperal. Howe and Imperial both would have more friends If there was less ml* reptesentatlon on tholr part Tbe Personal Issue in the County Seat Matter Being unable to bring forth a single reason why the county seat should be located at Imperial, the Standard In sists on making the 1 contest on person al lines alone. We don't wonder that the Standard refuses to discuss the merits of the case. We don't wonder that they don't want to talk soil pro duction, Industries, progress — for Im perial Is not noted for these essentials. But when It comes to throwing mud, there the Standard is In Its element. Having no character to assail the S andard's editor is certainly fearless In traducing people wh j have. Ho v ever, If the county seat question Is to be decided according to the character, methods, mental or moral qualities of the persons having the greatest finan cial Interests In the two places or ac cording to what those persons have done In or for the valley, we enter no particular objection. Here they are, Mr. Voter, compare them: Mr. Holt, of El Cenlro and Mr. Paulln, of the Imperial Land com pany. Both have made money on speculation In the valley. No honest man objects to that. But what have they done with It? Every school boy In the valley knows that Mr. Holt's money has been reinvested in substan tial Improvements of a character need ed and welcomed by every resident — Ice ptant, light and power plant, local railroad to Ho:tvll»e, banks, opera house, etc. When things looked the very worst and stoutest hearts among us hesitated to Invest further money in the path of the flood, Mr. Holt went on spending hundreds of thousands of dollars, rebuilding his burned ice plant wnen things looked worst of all. Now, where has Mr. Paulln's money gone? Echo answers where? Not in the Imperial Valley certainly. And should the voters be so short sighted as to place'the county seat at Imperial they will simply vote Mr. Paulln and the Imperial Land company a\ chance to sell some more of the Imperial lots and take the money out of the valley.. \ If you help Mr Hoit you help your self. Your vote will help extend and electricize the Holton Inter- Urban rail way, to extend the Hoiton Power light and power system all over the valley. You vote to Increase the capacity of the ice and cold storage plant; in short you vote to encourage people who have done things to continue to do things. If you want the valley to grow, pros per, boom, vote for Ei Ce.itro for county seat. A Majority is Pleased The Imperial Standard of Saturday sets up a whine similar to that of' a whipped pup because Supervisor Web ster Is In the Imperial supervisorial district. The reason is apparent. The Imperial push, with an idea to.rlngism and favoritism, had a candidate it wanted for supervisor. But it so hap pened that In making up the supervis orial districts the logical place, for the lines Included Mr. Webster's farm and naturally makes him their supervisor. Monday a number of farmers, as well as a number of towns people were In terviewed as to how they liked their supervisor and with hardly an excep tion the sentiment was In favor of Su pervisor Webster. Now, all In the world that is the matter with Howe and the push is they know Supervisor Webster Is a good, clean, honest man, and one that will look out for the very best Interests of the valley, but cannot be controlled by anyone. The push wanted a man who would be as pliable as rubber and they are not going to get him. Those of the tnlrd supervisorial district who like an honest man and are in favor of square dealing are In fa vor of Supervisor Webster. But you can't expect the push to look upon such a man with complacency. Lis ten to the howll Boy's Life Saved My little boy, four years old, hud a severe attack of dysoutary. We had two physicians; both of them gave him up. We then gave him Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea remedy which cured him and believe that saved his life.— William 11. Strounq, Carbon Hill, Ala. There is no doubt but this remedy saves the lives of many children each year. Give it with cas tor oil according to the plain printed directions and a cure is certain.
