Open letter to property owners and voters til the Rutch Creek Ifield Punu Imi Ami old River Arcus a Phi duo Moths of the scheme to Annex the water right areas it Fairfax Weed Patch Ireri Ifield and Panama to the Mcfarland-1 Maut i Didy District obtained signatures to tilt petitions in misrepresentation As to the kind of Bonds that could be issued under act fit Mil Hie promoters told the people that Revenue roads would he issued to pay for District operation while the Only Bonds that eau be issued Are general Lien Bonds Oil the property within the District. The supreme court decision a in that Point ended that method of fooling the people and the promoters have been forced to resort to some other prop Gamin. I icy Are now using the Story of the Modesto irrigation District and the Power companies. The owner of even acre of land which has a water right should realize that the Success or failure of the Modesto or any other District would he no reason to any sensible per son for the annexation of these valuable water right areas to a District of the character of the Delano Mcfarland District which has nothing physical or moral that would Benefit the areas pro posed to he annexed.
