YUMA COUNTY'S ASSESSMENT ROLL FOR 1917; GREAT CREDIT TO ASSESSOR MING (Continued From Page One.) the state in the matter of taxable wealth, showing an in crease of approximately TWO MILLION DOLLARS over the previous year a total of $16,989,027.45. This is not only a distinct honor for Yuma county, but speaks volumes in praise for County Assessor A. B. Ming, whose every aim and ambition has been to see that every property owner in Yuma county was placed on the assess ment rolls to pay his or her share in exact proportion to the value of his or her property. They have all been treated exactly alike, and as an evidence that the assessment was fair and equitable it is only necessary to say that the board of equalization approved the rolls just as they were sub mitted. It is doubtful if there is a single county in the state that can make a better showing in increased values than Yuma county, in fact the increase in Yuma county is little short of marvelous, when it is taken into consideration the limit ed acreage that can be put in cultivation. From an agri cultural standpoint, however, next year promises to far ex ceed the last year in the matter of valuation, for at the rate Yuma Valley lands are now being cleared and prepared for cultivation presages the greatest gain in that direction ever known in the county in the same length of time. When Assessor Ming was first inducted into office he found the taxable value of the county was placed at $4,i7, 401.49, or an increase in values of $12,481,625.96 during his tenure of office. Practically everything worthy of note in Y'uma dates from the time water was first allowed to flow through the great siphon. That was in June 1912. That year the assessment roll was $4,507,401.49. It is creditable indeed to note the increase since that time, which in round numbers amounts to $12,500,000. VOTE "YES ON PROPOSITION NO. 6 SUNDAY AND SIX O'CLOCK CLOSING HOURS ORDINANCE NO. 147.

The Toggery Home of Hart, Shaffner & Marx clothes OUR NEW WEATHER OBSERVER Successor to Homer S. Hackett, Makes Record The following is clipped from the San Diego Union: Hard, faithful work pays. Earl G. Gildea, San Diego boy, can vouch for that. The following leter received by the Union from H. F. Alciatore, met eorologist at the local weather bureau tells the story: "The civil service examination that has been called for August 1, for the position of messenger boy in the local office of the weather bureau at $360 per annum, is for the purpose of fill ing the vacancy in that grade made by the resignation of Earl G. Gildea, a San Diego boy who, after serving in this office as messenger boy for four years, has been promoted to the po sition of assistant observer at $900, in recognition of excellent work done while serving in the lower grades. "Gildea is a son of Mrs. Mary B. Gildea of La Jplla. He is now in charge, temporarily of the weather bureau office at Yuma, Ariz. On his return to San Diego, some time in October, he will be assigned to duty in this office as the second as sistant observer. His splendid record and recent well deserved promotion show what a bright and energetic young man can do for himself in the weather bureau, even though he start from the bottom of the ladder." Obesrver Gildea has proven, himself a most agreeable and affable young gentleman since he reached Yuma a couple of weeks ago. Having been cooped up in San Diego all his life, working in the Weather Bureau as an "understudy" it was but natural that when he was put in charge of our lo cal weather office he would try to es tablish a record. That he has done this no one wil deny, for he has fair ly set the woods on fire with the ab normal heat he has dished up for us. Of course he brought nearly all the humidity that has distressed us from San Diego, but he has promised to send it back from whence it came, and for the balance of this month he faithfully promises to let the weather instruments take their own course without any coaxing from him. If he will do this we will be greatly obliged, for -we have had quite enough of this reord-jbreaking weather. We have no desire to furfther compete with either San Diego, Los Angeles or Phoenix in the matter of humid at mosphere. Give us our good old dry heat. CALED TO THE COLORS Mrs. Gertrude M. Adams, the pains taking and accomplished Red Cross nurse who has been in Yuma for the greater part of the last year has been "called to the colors" by Uncle Sam, and like the true soldier that she is she has cheerfully obeyed the sum mons. Mrs. Adams left Yuma Tues day for Los Angeles where she will recuperate for the next ten days and then go direct to the training camp at Marfa, Texas, where she will be stationed until the troops at that point leave for "some place in Prance", when she will accompany them and do her full duty as a Red Cross, nurse. The best wishes of the entire community will follow her. IMPERIAL VALLEY'S HARD FIGHT Imperial Valley has had the fight of her life to hold her levees against the abnormal amount of water that has flown down the Colorado during the past month, but with splendid of ficials at the helm the Valley has withstood all the attacks of the river and it is now safe from all danger. When it is remembered that Imperial Valley has a crop this year valued at $30,000,000 it is no wonder that the eyes of the nation have been rivited on that section during the high wa ter that has threatened to wipe the valley off the map. ALL DANGER OF DISASTROUS OVERFLOW THING OF THE PAST (Continued from Page Four) ed to flow into the gulf. However, we here in Yuma are doubly thankful that our Reclamation forces have been able to keep those onrushing waters within the channel, even though it has kept the entire force on the go day and niht for almost two months. The river now stands at 21.6, a drop of 8 feet in 10 days. VOTE "YES ON PROPOSITION NO. 6 SUNDAY AND SIX O'CLOCK CLOSING HOURS ORDINANCE NO. 147.

They showed themselves manly in the course they pursued and as a result Imperial Valley will put in another dam and Yuma is amply protected against damages.

WEIR WILL BE BUILT IF IT IS NECESSARY The weir will be built in the Colorado river at low water, if found necessary. An agreement to this effect was entered into at a conference in Yuma Thursday. Attending the conference from here were President Leroy Holt and Directors C. D. Manning and R. D. Mc Pherrin, Chief Counsel Phil D. Swing and Consulting Engineer G. G. Anderson of the irrigation district. It was agreed by the Yuma people to permit the installation of the weir without further ob jection, providing the district deposited $5,000 for use of Project Manager Schlecht of the reclamation service at Yuma, in case of emergency. A bond totaling $25,000, of which the $5,000 is a part, is to be posted for the purpose. In addition to the above, the district will sign a guar antee of $100,000 to take, care of al damages done to Yuma lands or property be cause of the presence of the weir in the river. "At this time it doesn't ap pear necessary to place the weir in the river," declared President Holt of the dis trict board, "but it has been considered best to make all preparations in case of need. The material for the weir is on the ground and it could be installed in quick time if necessary." El Centro Zan jero. WASHINGTON.
