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.

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

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.

WATER USERS' DO A GRACEFUL
ACT
The Yuma County Water Users'
Asociation did. a most graceful and
humane thing at its meeting last
Thursday when the Governors and
the Directors of Imperial Valley came
to an amicable agreement about the
construction of a wier dam at Han
Ion heading. The governors did just
exactly what they should have done.
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
