Yuma Examiner (Newspaper) - August 28, 1913, Yuma, Arizona YUMA, ARIZONA, THURSDAY AFTERNOON', AUGUST 28, 1913. VOLUME XVII. NUMBER 141. FOURTH PUCE FOR L. ft. TRIBUNE SMS WELL VEILED PHOENIX, Aug. plac At last the Yuma bridge has a friend In Los Angeles. The Tribune comes out today witU a, splen- did argument for the immediate Con- struction of tliis much needed bridge So far as The Examiner can recall, the Tribune is the first Los Angelch- newspaper to come out definitely for this other newspapers contending themselves by remaining passive, or by out and out declaring for Los Angeles support for a ondg ul Needles. Yuma has n good booster at Los Angeles In George Mlcbelsen, of (hi Yuma National Bank, and president o the Yuma Commercial Club, who lef for the Angel City lust night. Mr Michelson stated to The Examiner bo- fore leaving Hint he intended to work on the bridge matter for the nexi couple of weeks. The money must be raised by Sep- tember Knli (not October 1) In order to get the Imperial county The moiicv will be Included in Hie hnperial county tax levy if more Is raised by the coast cities. Afler Sep- tember Kith miy money from Imperial county must come from private sub- scription. As stated in a telegram from Dr. Ap.lohn at San Diego, published in Tuesday's Kxuminer, and from othci sources of Information, there Is little doubt that will be ready be- fore September Ifilh, and the work on the Yuma bridge wil begin soon thereafter. The Tribune has the following Los Angeles, San Diego and Riverside Counties Duty-Bound to Aid Project -If Riverside and San Diego counties'will raise and subscribe it, Southern California will have u bridge across the Colorado river for general traffic that will bring tens of thousands of automobiles into tliis section and that practically will assure the early construction of the ocean-lo-oeemi highway, which has so longj been discussed mid which is so popular a project. The crossing ol the Colorado at Yuma is unprovided for. and as it Is vital to Hie highway enterprise friends of Hie latter are now- taking an active interest, in the work toward getting the bridge built. "The federal, government has appro- priated toward this bridge Arizona and more IE needed. "Imperial county has promised raise which is a large amount of money for a young and sparsely settled country. A friend of the high way movement has promised If the rest Is raised, and this means that from some source or other must be forthcoming. "Th" proposed ocean to-ocean high- way runs through Imperial River- Fide toward Los Angeles, and another road Is being built to connect the imperial with Snn It Is believed, therefore, that, if this money is to be raisod it must come frrfm the Hire" counties named, to be audcd lo th" subMTiption promised by imperial conniv. bill was presented at Hi" last session nf the ligislainr- I" "il- npprnprlMinc aw nils s cnnlrib'iiinn. but the bill whil" H was did not meet wlh th" govern or's approval.

HUB west of Dixieland to a point four miles west of Coyote Wells, arrived this morning, and men are here lo gel the outfit on the ground at mice. While the present contract calls for but ten miles to be built this year, the fact that work Is begun so early In Hie season is taken a sprobable evidence that supplemental contracts will be let and the road pushed into the iiionii :alns before next summer. The vigorous policy which the rail road company has shown of lute in crowding construction west of tin mountains and the promise of comple lion of I lie road In time for the expo sllion In San Diego are taken as sup porting evidence In favor of cuniim ous work ul thin end. The contract culls for beginning ol work Sept ember 1, but It bad not beet expected here thai work would begii promptly on time, an there is a dh position to hold up such work for lln cooler weather, lint It now looks as though the work would begin on the dot of lime.
