liams, Arizona, for the past year and

files On Water In
The Alamo River
The El Centro Press says:
This week notices have been filed
with Imperial County officials on a
claim for 50,000 inches of water in
the Alamo river. The filers are Frank
M. Salisbury and W. H. Best. They are
acting for a company of valley men
who are interested in lands in the vi
cinity of Bernice, in the northern end
of the valley.
It is proposed to construct a dam
across the Alamo river three quarters
of a mile east of Rockwood bridge,
where surveys were made and a sim
ilar project was contemplated by For
mer Manager Cory of he California
Among those who are especially in
terested in the new irrigation project
are: J. W. Yoakum, a large land own
er in the north end district; C. Dar
nell, Lyons Brothers, W. H. Best,
Frank Salisbury and Ira Aten.
It is estimated that approximately
50,000 acres of land will come under
this new system.
$1,500 Cash Prizes
The Arizona Democrat "says:
When he opened" his mail this morn
mg, George Purdy Bullard, president
ot the Maricopa Automobile' Club and
father of the Phoenix race, found two
checks. One was from San Diego and
was tor $1,000: the other was from
Yuma and was for $500. Botn are for
distribution emong the winners of the
El Centro has not yetma'de good on
her promise to contribute $500 toward
the purse for the race, but will do so
in a day or two. Yuma and San Die,
nave aone everytmng tney were ex
pected to do or promised to do. While
Yuma gave only half as much as San
Diego the little city by the Colorado
is far better than that of the Southern
California metropolis, for the popula
tion of San Diego is many times
Berore it was finally decided to
change the route of this race to pass
through San Diego, El Centro and Yu
ma, those places had agreed to in
crease the purse $2,000. It was on
their promises, in; fact, that the longer
route was finally chosen in the place
of the shorter, more difficult one.
ine increased purse is certain to
attract more cars, create greater in
terest" in the race and Vring more au
tomobiles here from all parts of the
United States to witness the finish. It
is estimated that not less than $2,000
will be spent here during the next fair
by persons who would not come here
were it not for the race. Mainly be
cause of that event, the San Diego
Chamber of Commerce boosters are
coming and the Los Angeles business
men have chartered a special train lo
bring them to Phoenix.
The Yuma Ice Company's soda wat
er is the best. Only pure distilled wat
er is used in its manufacture, there
fore it is also the most healthful.
