The $1,600,000 to be paid for a connection with Laguna dam wouldn't be a drop in the bucket compared to giving Impe rial Valley the right to ALL THE WATER IN THE RIVEk in the event there was ever a water shortage. Better by far permit Imperial Valley to keep up her struggle for water at Hanlon heading diversion dam that give away the greatest asset Yuma Project can ever hope to have. As to Imperial Valley's claim to the power that will be developed when the canal shall have been enlarged, that contention can be dismissed forthwith, for "our beloved Yu ma mesa" would go out of existence if we had no power with which to lift the water from the canal to these unsurpassed lands. Our plans are already complete for the construction of the necessary works at Araz to utilize the power that can be developed at that point. If Imperial Valley is willing to pick up the water at that point, after we have done with it, why, all well and good; but if Imperial Valley insists that this: power belongs to Imperial Valley, why, in that event Impe rial Valley had just as well keep on wrestling with her "wat er shortage problem" at Hanlon heading, for as long as the sun shines, as long as "our beloved Yuma mesa" is thirsty, as long as there is a Yuma Project we will continue to insist that Yuma Project is very justly entitled to AS MUCH POWER AS IT MAY BE ABLE TO MANUFACTURE AT ANY POINT ALONG THE CANAL, NO MATTER AT ' HAT POINT, FOR USE ON THE MESA. That is as certain as two and two make four, and if Im- "rI Valley thinks it can "slip one over" by sending a spe- cjmmittee to Washington it will find that Yuma is on nc, ready to fight to the last ditch for her rights. "We want to meet you in a spirit of fairness and friend liness," said Mr. Swing, and then he proceeded to try to "break it off in Yuma Project." Well, maybe they can, and maybe they can't. The directors of Imperial Valley are ex pected to meat here Saturday of this week with our board of governors, to come to an amicable agreement. Just strike nut the objectionable features above alluded to and we can get together very easily. If Imperial Valley sticks to her contentions it would seem merely a waste of time to discuss them, for we can never yield one iota in that direction. We can very easily get along without Imperial Valley but Im perial Valley can't survive wjthout Laguna dam. WINTERHAVEN EGYPTIAN COTTON EXCHANGE. PIMA COTTON GROWER'S CONTRACT.
