Entered a* second-class matter March - 3d,
1906 at the po9tofficeatEl Centro, California,
■nder the Act of Congress of March 3, 1»79.
The Press is sending out a
complete statement of each sub
scriber's account with this paper,
l>elieving fully that one runs be
hind in their subscription to their
paper through thoughtlessness
more than for any other one rea
son. The postal laws are strict
in the matter that a subscription
to a paper must be paid for in
advance, and in order to get the
date on every name marked up
to these requirements, the few
who are delinquent are being no
tified as to their standing. It
not being the wish of the Press
to arbitrarily discontinue the
paper without good cause, this
method is taken. Should there
be a mistake in any statement
you may receive please let the
management know wherein it
lies and the same will be cheer
fully corrected. But don't kick
—you won't feel any worse than
we do if we make a mistake.
CAU TION NEEDED
The meetings held at Imperial
Friday and at El Centro Tues
day are bound to have a far
reaching effect on the future of
this valley. As was stated in the
Press last week, there'is no doubt
but what there is land in the
Imperial Valley that is being
jumped the owner of has
fully complied with the law in
every respect, and that the act
of contesting the same is either
a piece of foolishness or of ma
liciousness. In either case the
owner will be subjected to a
great deal of expense and annoy
ance needlessly, and these
things should be stopped, and
every land owner in the valley
should lend his hand to help stop
it. People must be protected in
But extreme caution should be
used by the men who are acting
in this matter that they do not
lend their hand to also help some
one keep a body of land that
they are not entitled to. In the
face of so many allegations re
garding land frauds, there may
possibly'be some cases of such
in the valley, and the Press holds
that there should be nothing
done to cover up any wrongfully
held land. And the Press holds
with equal vigor that no one
should suffer from the foolisli
• ness or maliciousness of a pro
fessional land jumper. Care
must be exercised in this matter.

The tax rate as set by the
Board of Supervisors of Imperial
county is $4.25 on the $100.
This seems like a very high rate,
and to some few it will so prove.
The most of the taxable property
of this county at the present time
is personal property and to the
man who has both personal prop
erty and real estate will feel the
taxation quite a little, but there
are always a few who have to
carry a heavier burden for the
benefit of the many. As the
taxable property in this county
stands today, it has to be made
to do double duty. ' For instance,
a man, has a farm, well tilled,
and valuable; has proved up on
the same, but as yet has not
patent He has to pay enough
on his personal property to make
up for thd land not being taxable.
If all the land in this condition
was taxable at this time, our rate
of tax would be very small in
But even as it is the whole
county is gainer. Last year
what is now Imperial county
paid into the treasury of San
Diego county $21,000 road tax
and San Diego county paid back
to us what amounted to about
$10,000. In this deal our roads
suffered to the amount of $11,000
while this year, under our new
government there will probably
be paid to the road fund nearly
$22,000, every penny of which
will go to the betterment of our
roads and bridges.
We can well feel that we are
ahead in the transaction. Our
roads need attention and good
roads mean more to us, probably,
than to any other part of Sonth
ALL WEEK SESSION
The County Board of Educrtion
v Solving Knotty Problems
Supt J. B. Carr, Mrs. J. M.
Eshleman and E. McCully of the
Imperial County Board of Educa
tion have been in session several
days. Mrs. Eshleman was elect
ed president of the board and
Supt. Carr is secretary ex-officio.
The problems coming before the
Board are numerous and weighty ;
among them may be mentioned
the following: A course of study
for the schools of the new coun
ty, the examinations for teachers,
examining credentials of teach
ers who have not had opportuni-
I ty to be examined, textbooks for
j the county schools and reference,
and library lists. >
The other members of the Board
express themselves as delighted
I with the familiarity that Supt.
i Carr has shown regarding his
duties and powers, as well as his
pleasant manner in dealing Lwith
the many intricate questions
continually arising. . .
| The members of the Board ex
press a determination to place a
high standard of educational
excellence for the new county
and ask that those interested
give a warm support to every ef
fort made for the improvement
of the schools. In many coun
ties the efficiency of the schools
has been greatly hampered by
the certificating and employment
ot' inexperienced and incompe
tent teachers merely because
cuch teachers had influence. ; It
i» believed that Imperial county
vih start in its educational ca
i er without any such an incu
i'b'usi and the present Board is not
likely to encourage incompetents.
ueimiie results of the Board's
action will be given from time to
j time, /
