is in the city visiting old friends nnd
looking after property interests here.
Mr. Beard Is in tho Irrigation sec
tion of the San Joaquin valley, and
all of the land around where lie is
located Is worked on tho system of
tho Wright law. This is tho scheme
that was lost at the election held at
Milton last week, when It was at
tempted to organize the Llttlo Walla
Walla Irrigation District. Mr. Beard
thinks there Is nothing like the sys
tem, and Is of the opinion that the
opponents of the measure at Milton
will see the day when they will ho
sorry that they voted to kill the meas
ure. At the time that the law was put
into effect In his country, It had
many bitter opponents, but these peo
plo are its best friends now, for thoy
have come to see the benefits to bo
derived from Its operation. Mr.
