During the recent flood a mighty volume of water has been pouring into the sea and the stream has cut such a deep channel at the intake of the Cal ifornia Development Company that it has been decided to abandon all attempts to stop it. The company will immediately commence the construction of a line of track in the foot hills that will put the Southern Pa cific beyond reach of the creep ing waters for all time. The waters of the Salton are creep ing toward the last shoo-sty constructed and another on still higher ground is now being built. It is expected that the last one will not be reached by the waters of the Salton until the sixty mile detour has been completed. It is also reported that nearly all of the river has left its chan nel and is flowing through the Imperial canal, which has been widened from 50 to 200 and 300 feet and the waiter is pouring into the Salton sink. Some of the water is being diverted into the Volcono lakes and unless steps aro taken to strengthen and heighten the banks of the lakes, it is said that the water will flood the Imperial Valley and result in untold disaster. President Ripley, of the San ta Fe System, has proposed to executive officers of other trans continental lines, that they en ter into an agreement to leng then the time of all important passenger trains between Chi cago and Colorado and Califor nia. About a month ago. in hope of wresting from the Rock Is land and Southern Pacific roads a valuable contract for carry ing the United Sates mails to Lower California, the Santa Fe management put the Califor nia Limited train on a schedule of sixty-seven hours and fifteen minutes from Chicago to Los Angeles. The Rock Island and Southern Pacific companies de cided immediately to meet this cut in time. Since November 12. when the new schedules went into effect, the Santa Fe’s California Limited has been on time in Los Angeles only three times. President Ripley has become cotnvinced that the speed war was a mistake, and now wants to have all competing roads join the Santa Fe in running more slowly all important pas senger trains. The new steel frame passen ger cars which have been order ed by the Santa Fe are begin ning to arrive aud are being placed in commission as fast as they arrive. They are far su perior to the old equipment, even the second-class and smok ing cars being of the steel frame variety. It is believed that by the middle of January the entire lot of seventy five new coaches that were ordered, will have been received by the Santa Fe and placed in commis sion. With the new steel frame cars it will be a pretty severe shock that can succeed in tele scoping them, as they are built with a view to withstand the telescoping process, so disas trous heretofore. An agreement has been filed with the county recorder at San Diego, Cal., for the purchase of the Southern California Rail way by the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad Company. The purchase will coyer eighty eight miles of lines in that county, besides a much greater trackage in Los Angeles and Orange Counties, the total be ing 478.07 miles. The price is $17,312,400. Out of the 128,260 shares of stock the Santa Fe already owns 127.455. The own ers of the other 805 shares will be paid $135 per share. Plans are under way for the building of a number of tourist cottages and hotels in the bot tom of the Grand Canyon,along the Bright Angel gorge. The grandest scenery is at this point.
