Fillinc Imperial Valley.
DETROIT, Mich.. Sept. 2L Disastrous
results from Irrigation in the Imperial
Valley. In Southern California, were pre
dicted by George . Wiener, of Detroit,
an enginoer of National reputation and
member of the International Waterways
Commiaslon. Mr. Wlsner was speaking
before the Detroit Engineering Society.
"Within 39 years lhouHUtds of people
who have taken up Government lands la
the Imperial Valley will be driven out
by water, their liomes and fields forming
thcN bottom of an immense inland sea,
he said. "The caupe of the coming catas
trophe is poor engineering in diverting
the course ofthe Colorado River for Irri
gation purposes. The river has cut into
the banks of 1U new course to such an
extent that nearly all of the Colorado
Riyer flows down into the valley.
'The engineers realize the danger, hut
after many frantic efforts have failed to
change the river's oourae back to Its old
bed. Not for 20 years will the evapora
tion ther? be equal to the Inflow Into the
valley, lly that time a million aorag of
the valley, which is from M ta S feet
below sea level, will be covered by an in
land sea." .

the Editor.) As the sudden, failure,
without notice, of the Atlas Construe
tion Corananv. of San Francisco, to
meet its own second monthly payroll
due ten days ago (which are not pay- i
rolls of the Portland. Nehalem & Tilla- .

speculatdrs to offer to purchase those
contractors "time checks at h cents on
the dollar. I write to suggost that the
workmen employed by the Atlas Com-:
nanv. n'ha ir hstlrfnr.q nf thMI time
checks, should accept nothing less than j
par value for them, for this reason:
That, although the railway company
did no employ these workmen nor
cause Atlas Company to stop ' work
through non-performance of any obli
gation Or otherwise, yot long before
the Atlas Company's obligations to
contractors mature, ample moneys will

noon. Between 3V and 3ft riders pranced
around the showring and it was with
considerable difficulty that Judge W

shown and Judge Dobson after he had
finished his awards paid a very high
compliment to the Portlnnd Hunt
"I was not aware." said he. "when I

Judge Dobson was in oarnest when
he made these remarks, for he had de
liberated and rodellbcrated over the
a war da in the first class which was
shown. Tho first ribbon in this elase
went to T. rfcott Brooks' Joe, Jewett,
ridden by Jame3 NIcoI. The second rib
bon went to Miss L. Flanders' beauti
ful seddler. Jennie Moore, ridden by T.
S. McRath. It was a close choice be
twfcon Misa Flanders horse and Mr.
Brooke's vand the Judge took several
long, anxious looks at them both be
fore he settled, upon the winner. E. M.
Lazarus' Marengo was third. Marengo
was porhaps one of the best-known
horses In the showring and when a rib
bon fell to him. 'there was considerable
applause. H. C Campbell's Willa. ridden
by John Latta was fourth, and Mrs. A.
S. Norton's Paul Jones, ridden by E.
Ed Sterling, was fifth. This was in
the class 15 hands and over.
In the class for 15i hands and under,
the first ribbon went to W. C Ti w-
rence's Sunday Mack, which was well
ridden by Mr. Lawrence himself. The
second ribbon went to James Nlcol's
Rastus. which was also ridden jby him- I
jelf. Henry Metzger's Cricket carried
aft third honors.- The fourth ribbon
went to James Nlcol's Tom. ridden by
Ed Sterling, and the fifth color went to
Mr. Wlnslow's Maud, ridden by T. T.
The hunters' class was a fizzle. In
the hurry In getting up the show the
hurdles were forgotten and just to
show that some of the Hunt Club
horses could jump, a long piece of
board was taken from the grandstand
and placed upon some wooden horses.
The jump was so wretchedly bad that
some of the hunters refused to take It.
The horses whieh took the jump were
Mrs. F. G. Buffam's Will Wehrung-, rid
den by4 James NIcol; Otto Breyraan's
Frank, ridden by William Walters; Mr.
Laznrue had some trouble In getting
Mhrengo to take the jump and so did
Joe Muehe. The jumping of Frank,
under the skillful handling of Master
Walters was" a treat of tho afternoon.
Bocatise no special arrangoments had
been made for the jumps. Judge Dobson
gave each of the riders a ribbon.
Miss Howard was tho only woman
who ventured in the showring. She rode
and' drove Starlight and curried off
two first prizes.
