Extra Imperial Valley Press. rOL. VII AN UNFORTUNATE AFFAIR One of the most unfortunate oecur •ences arising from the i contest for :ounty offices and county- seat was the writing and printing of the article signed by S. J. Ulrey, which was printed In the Standard last week and for which writing and publishing C. H. Day alleges !he - was defamed and harmed. It Is to be lamented that Mr. Ulrey should go so far In his zeal to further the schemes of the Imperial push as to try and hurt-the character of a citi zen of the valley to the extent he should be arrested on a charge of criminal li bel. The Imperial push had it all planned that Wentworth was to be the chairman of the convention and In the pockets of two or three delegates were resolutions which would have been read had Wentworth 1 been made chair man and because the deep iald scheme was not allowed. to go through, now the Imperial push must add another to Its list to roast and toast through the columns of their slandering paper. The article as written ran smoothly and sounded nice and venomous, >. but there seemed to be no foundation for the assertions made. Under the circumstances Day is not to be criticised for seeking redress from both the author and publisher. From the beginning it became evi dent that the biggest portion of their campaign ••argument," as they, call it, was to malign the character of those who were not with them. Ever sitvce Howe took charge of the Standard someone has been the object of' an at tack from that paper. He seems to be nevei* satisfied unless he Is: 'rhalign ing a defaming someone. But every ane was suiprlsed 'When -rf Mr-. ; Ulrey should lend his versatile pen to what seems to be ah attempt ■ at Vthe same and, and all because he had just begun to realize that their chance Xo win the county seat was not so great as he had believed. The 'question arising In the minds of a great many people Is. has the Imperial push any grounds for call- Ing a shovel by its right name, as Howe asserted Ulrey did In this in REAL ESTATE!

CALIFORNIA. THURSDAY. JULY 25. 1907 stance. How about 'the ■ way they have conducted their • campaign? |s It not a notorious fact that I they have taken advantage. of every, underhanded political scheme they could think of? Have they ever conceeded any oth er town or any other section of the val ley any rights whatsoever? Have they not rode roughshod over everything they could? Did they not start out at the very first with an unfair advantage? What other town In the Imperial Val ley would not have allowed each com munity a fair ■ representation at the first meeting called for county divis ion? They know and you know that Imperial did not. It was fixed by the push, And now that the representa tive people of the valley are turning against the gang, their Ire knows no bounds. What a pity. Really, what disgrace against the peace and dignity :of our fair valley. But the effect of these utterances does not end with just one man. A majority of the delegates come under these unnecessary and uncalled for re marks and It is not to be supposed that those honest delegates either in the majority or minority side will shoulder these serious imputations without resentment., . . ( Whether Messrs. Howe and Ulrey are guilty of criminal libel is yet to be determined by the courts, but whether Or no, these gentlemen have no right to cast reflection on. so large a body of men and it would be better in the future should they call a shovel by some other name.

For Whose Benefit After having started the county di vision movement In an underhanded manner when It was believed by the push that Imperial would stand Its best chance to secure the county seat, and after learning to Its sorrow that • the majority of the valley people do not believe in such underhanded means as have been practiced by the push, the Standard tries to work on the sympa thies of the voters by making false as sertions that Imperial Is alone In the world — an orphan as It were. Along with these -. same statements comes one also to the effect that the promot ers of El Centro. should It win, were going to be benefited to such an ex tent that It was almost appalling. Let us look Into this matter a ilttle way: Imperial was promoted by one of Pau lin's companies. A few lots were sold to people- who live in the town al the present time. More lots — many more — were sold at auction at whatever price was offered. Most of these, however, were sold to- non-residents. , Ail of the unsold lots belong to some one of the companies dominated and controlled by F. C. Paulln. Believing the Standard was not telling the truth when it asserted that the town was

mostly- owned by the people who live there, the Press had the Abstract Title and Trust Co, of San D'ego, make a list of the unSo'd lots in Imperial 'be longing to the' Paulin companies and we are frank to confess that the figures given were even a surprise to us— and also showed us the nigger in the *wood pile: There are ONE THOUSAND, ONE 'HUNDRED AND THIRTY FOUR unsold lots in the townsite of Imperial, or twice as many as there are In El Centro. - ■ ■ The figures are absolutely authentic, having been furnished, as we said be fore, by the Abstract Title and Trust Co., of San Diego. .. . ■. ; The enormity of the figures cannot help but show you who will be the most benefited by winning the county seat. Paulln. with his 1 134 unsold lots. would have a wad of money to take out of the valley and invest elsewhere If I mperial gets the prize. And. information also just as au thentic, shows that the large majority of Imperial property owners do not live In the valley. Now the question comes before you:' Are you going to help Paulin sell those lots so that he will have more money to invest In Los Angeles or Long Beach or are you going to stand by the men who put their money into the valley, building up needed industries; men who are not afraid to work with you shoul der to shoulder to make the advance ment of the Imperial Valley more marked than any other section in the United States. This settling of the county seat question is not a question of sympathy or of priority right as, Imperial j would have you believe; It's a question of se curing a location where you know things will move and keep a moving ' The Awful Crime Rev. -Wentworth. 'practically the only minister In the valley out of four teen to favor Imperial, spoke at Holt vllle Wednesday night mainly on the greatest crime of the campaign-not electing him, chairman of the conven tion. He has taken it so seriously that It Is amusing, ■At the end F. N. Chaplin called for three cheers for Im perial but the crowd listened and there was not a single response. — From the Calexico Chronicle.

Mr. Editor: As chairman of the committee on credentials at the late county convention it seems to be my duty to say a word regarding Mr. C. H. Day. The committee found Mr. Day's name on the same list and certified to by the same authority that was given to all the Brawley delegation. No one appeared before our committee to ob ject to these credentials and all were accepted. Now If Mr. Day had no right in the convention how could the balance of the delegation be otherwise? Mr. Day was chosen chairman by the majority of the convention, who repre sented a majority of the voters of the new county's districts and as it was apparent that the people desired some thing different from I mperial-Went worth rule it was only right that they should have it.

I have attended many conventions In my career and I do not hesitate to say that I consider the delegates to that convention as a whole as « fair minded honorable body of gentlemen as I ever saw together anywhere and though I feel sorry for Mr Wentworth's disappointment, for he seemed to have set his heart so much upon ruling that convention. 1 have nothing but loath ing for a man like Mr. S. J. Ulrey, who dares to impeach the honor and integrity of a body of his superiors. It is not to be expected that men should have hair and brains both, but there was one In the Imperial delega tion who has neither. H. J. Messin6er, Holtvllle, Cal.
