"SfVervfde. CalJ^nmla. (Biver.sitJe Preas, Aug. 27.) The vahie of any section of Southern California, outside of the limited moist land areas is dependent upon the extent and reliability of the water system. South Riverside is composed of a tract of; about 10,000 acres of very choice foothill fruit land extending from the Temescal Mountains to the Santa Ana river a distance of about four milçs. It has been placed on the market with a winter right similar to that of Pomona and Ontario so far as quantity of water is concerned—one inch to ten acres of land. a cement pipe line about eight miles long with an inside measurement of thirty inches ' has been laid which covers about 6000 acres of land including the town site. The pipe lias a capacity of 1000 ^ inches and 628 wUl giye a water right of one inch to ten acres to all land below the pipe line. If in the future more water * is desired the pipe line still has a capacity to carry enough water for one inch to about six acres. " -. Another pipe line will .jut in to supply water to the 4000 acres above the present line. This upper pipe will be of iron and water will be "delivered under pressure. The question arises, Has thé company water sources enough to' furnish the amount of water needed)? This is the time of year to examine their sources of supply to determine this question. Augûst is the dryest month of the year, and as this is a dry seaso^ the condition of the streams at present will bo a safe guide to future oiiei-ations. Tlirough the length of the Temescal valley is a well traveled road over which Riverside people frequently travel. Hundreds of people have gone over tliis, road without even suspecting that there was enough water in the valley to water their horses, except that drawn from the wells. It is not strarjge therefore that the conclusion ' has been reached by many that there was no irrigation water in this valley.- ■ But what are the facts of the caie? Yesterday- the editor of The. Press, in company with d; l. Wilbur of Rivorsido and r. b. Tuylor, superintendent of the South Riverside Land Company ^ made -an all day's examination of the water sources of that val ley j and wo desire to layJi)efote the readeirs of The Press the result of - that examination. WATER IN SIGHT The Land Company has purchased nearly all the old esttib-lished ranches in that valley and the water rights and cienegas connected with each. Going up the valley the Harrington place is first reached. There is today running in Temescal creek at this place fully 200 inches of water and all of this rises in the valley jùèt above the ranch'and within half a mile of its southern line. The water at this poiiit is however below the pipe lino and is of no. vaiue except that- anothet' pipeline can be "run, if necessity require, a distance of three oi four mOes to South Riverside, covering at.least 3000 acres of law^i But this water is not needed.' There is running in the pipe Une at prewàt 144 inçhog of,Water—All' that is now n^ed and more too^ and iks water au pses ^ )frithm twenty &et of the head of the pipe in a ditch that is neither deep nor wide, but the water flow lias beeii; permanent all summer. .The Riley efenega, a «bort diB-tanco rrom the ^ad of tfie 'pipe line, has imw %wtng from it 75 inches of water, none of which is conducted io the pipe line as it is not now needed and the cienega is undeveloped, the present flow coming from the surface. This ciénega covers only nine acres. The Rolfe cienega covers seventy a^tes and is half a mile long. The company paidí35,000 for tliis water right and the small ranch connected therewith. There is inches of Water now runniüg from ' this cienega in half Ja dozen different streams flowing in different directions and all sinking in the gravelly wash. The Compton cienega covers nineteen acres and at present furnishes ahout 50 inches of water. This cienega, like the one on the Rolfe place,is entirely undeveloped. Lee Lake is about two milps above the head of the pipe line. It is about twenty-five feet deep and with thfe cienega ground around it covers about 120 acres. There is now running from this lake 80 inches of water, but it all sinks before reaching the pipe lino. On the margin of this lake Mr. Taylor put down a three-inch iron pipe to the depth of fifty feet and,obtained a good flow of artesian water. as he was buying wet land in the val-lay at the time arid did not wish to advortise artesian water just then he pulled up the pipe. The well was sunk on groiind fully twelve feet^ove the level of the lake. company is now engaged running a tunnel under this lake. The tunnel is started in a diry wash nearly half á mile . below the lake arid will be 2200 feet long when compileted and the face of the tunnel will be 95 feet below the surface of the lake. The tunnel is noW in 120 feet and about ten inches of water is running out. There are three shifts of hands working night and day. This pipe lino will require 678 inches to irrigato the lands below it arid the company have running today of undeveloped water the following amounts. Now in pipe line ....................... 144 Riley Cienega........................... 75 Uolie Cienogii.......................... ISO Comptom Cionegii.................................50 Lee Luke............................... 80 Totiil...................................49» To which is to be added the 10 inches of developed water in the tunnel making 609 inches. It is the intention of the company to complete the tunnel in which they are now working, also to run tunnels and cross tunnels under the, Ililey,Rolfe and Compton Ciénegas and >al80 to put down numerous artesian wells in localities' where they are sure to obtain flowing water. WATER TO BE DEVELOPED The question naturally arises, what is the prospect of developing water in the cienegas and lake owned by the South Riverside w^-Company. , wo can judge of. the prospect here only by citing similar work in other places. At Cucamonga one year ago they had about 300 inches of water-natural flqw. The Messrs. Lynch —father and son—have been operating in that section ever since to develop water and place on the market land hitherto dry and of little value. They had six cienegas which covered about 100 acres of land. They selected the smallest of these because of its being located at a point where the water could be best utilized, fl,nd commenced work. There was six inches of water flowing from the cienega when they commenced work. By rutming ditches deep and wide through the surface of the wet ground,, they increased the flow tO forty inches. Not con tent with this they p roposed to run in tWo tunnels in the shape of a i'v" each branch being 500 feet long when completed. One branch is now completed and » distance of about '300 feei has been run oh the other end. The üow has been inóre^sed to 190 inehes n^ut the juirfo«^ ditches are all dried up an4,j^t the water comes from the ip.compiet^ tunnel. Other de-Telopipenta .it Oucumonga have increased the flow of water to 700 inches which gives thorn 400 inches of dovelojjod'water. ' The tunnels can bo made fot abovi^ $7 par foot. "Mr," Lynch, Jr.,; has ftiade a careful examination of the Tiiniescal ciénegas and hé is confident that developing probabilities there áre at least four times as great as they are in the Cucumonga cienegas, and in the latter place ho-expects to develop as a minimum, quantity of Water one thousand inches with a fair probability of obtaining fully double that amount. Water development by means of running tunnels under cJenegas is comparatively new in Southern California, and y«t in every'instan cfi~\vhere it has been tried thus far the result is more than «alíisfae- The Press takes no risk in predicting that enough water will bo developed in the Temescal valley to irrigato in good shape every fóot of arable land between the cienegas and the Santa Ana river. But without any developments the com^ pany has enough water to irrigate every foot of land below the pipe line; as will be seen by the following- Inclio.H ■W.ntcr .sourcc.? mentioned above.......500 Muyhew cnnyori..r.................... 40 Harrington place................. ....200 Total............................ ..; 740 7 This does not ifictude the waters of Coldwater canyon^^a portion of which is in dispute. - This -749 inches of water is actually flowing today and is in the undisputed possession of the cofioi-pany. as soon as the water is developed to supply the present pipe line'the waters of MayheW canyon and the Compton cienega will be used to irrigate Idnds lying above the present pipe line. No one who visits these source« of water supply can for a moment doubt that in orle year's time soutu Riverside will have one of the ijeát irrigation systems in California, An Extra Edition. a special, illustrated, eight page edition of the Bee will' be issued for distribution at the g.ia. r» encampment at St. Louis. At least 6,000 copies will be {hjinlcd. Orders for extra copies should be sent in at once or they cannot be filled. a limited amount of advertising will be taken and advertisers are requested to make application for space as soon as possible. This will be an excellent opportunity for advertisers. Rates furnished on application. No Danger of O verproduotion. Some people on this coast arò inclined to believe—or affect t» believe—that the frjiit growing business is in danger of being overdone. The same thing was said ten years p,bo, when the industry was in its earliest infancy. How groundless such fears are may be quickly diétìovpred by -an unpreju*-diced inquirer who will investigate. The United States imports 60,000.-000 pounds of prunes, 7,000,000 pounds.of figs, 53,000,000 pounds of raisins, 5,000,000 pounds of aluipnds,;!8,000 carloads of oranges and lemons, 250 car-loads of pre^ served fruits, 250 car-loads of olivek oil and 650 car-loads of other fruits, representing a total value, of qyer $20,000,000 ; then, add to thif th® immense amount of wine which is imported and which can be oaade here, the export trade in canned and dried fruits, wines, etc.,already large, which i^ay bo almost irtdef-initely increased, the natural growth of our population and the equally natural growth of a, demand for fruit, as it can be supplied-cheaper—viewing »11 this, whO' shall say thftt the possibilities of Pacific Coast fruit business have yet been . imagined, even by the most sanguine friends of the indu»»' trj,—Padfie Frwit Grower. ^ Breathed Only. ^ " He—ThoM i» loiuething whkfh I ha?«, been wanting to ssk yau. ior week», .»K.
