In his Phoenix speech Hoval Smith
th-voled much of his time to a discus
sion of the feasibility of converting the
grunt coal tlciosits of Arizona into
electrical energy to be use! for pump
ing water for the reclamation of thoirs
aniis of acres of arable land anil the
conversion of those acres of desert in
to productive farms the homes of
thousands of happy contented citizens.
In the course of his -speech Mr. Smith
There is only one way to biing into
the profit bearing class large acreages
in Arizona and that is to secure cheap
pewor. We have no large streams in
allow us to secure electrical power to
ran from the streams-
northern part of Arizonn approximate
ly 250 to J50 miles north of Tucson.
w. have, according to estimates' inude
by the United States geological survey,
mi estimate which is absolutely cor
rjet, ami which I have over the sig
nature of Dr. George Otis Smith, di
rector of the geological survey, which
I secured through our honorable del
egate, Ralph II. Cameron: that in the
mountains of Xavajo, Coconino and
Apache, we have over fifteen billion
tons of coal of a good bitummus qual
ity, of good commercial grade. Also,
in a discussion with Dr. Smith I wa?
led to believe that this tonnage would
be doubled and tripled, resulting ulti
mately to a tonnage in this territory,
aitproximating fifty billion tons.
We liave in nearly every county of
Arizona, vast quantities of Ia.vJ. where
water can be obtained at a depth of
fiom ten to sixtv feet and eighty feet
fiom the surface. Heretofore we haw
not been able to utilize these lands.
we have vast acreages of mineral
land, not only in Pima county, but in
iHiictically every county of Arizonn. It
is impossible to develop this at thf
present time, on acount of the high
cost of power. Wlien wo reduce the
cost of power, will bring in money
at once, and increase the product of
copper and silver and gold, as the cost
or eowcr decreases.
We have tlie agricultural lands, wid
water near the surface. We have the
mineral land, with large quantities of
mineral. We haw large coal area?
within a mean distance of two hundred
and fifty miles. The point is to secure
that energizing force, because coal is
tle energizing force of all commerce,
and is the basis of prosperity of nearly
eery nation of first class power to
day. The point is to find out some
p:ncticnl way of obtaining and send
ing that power from the conl fields in
the counties mentioned, throughout
and down into every section of Arizo
na where it is needed.
I have worked out one plan, and that
if. to to and secure federal coopera
tion and aid, have the United States
government set aside a fund to bo
Utilized tinder what would be known
as the National Power Act. as they
set aside an amount of money under
the national irrigation act to make
habitable vast acreage of the once
arid wastes in the west. How can
this be done? I might state here that
these coal deposits at the present time
are locked up in the Indian reserva
tions of the north. The first problem
will be to ascertain whether or not
these Indian reservations contain more
acreage than is necessary. We hnve
thirty-one thousand square miles in
Arizona alone locked up in Indian res
ervations. We have r.r.0,000 Indian in
the United States" and only 30,000 In
In othor w.inh. we hive over !l!
times the acreage for Indian reserva
tions in Arizona, proportionately, than
i'. tlie rest of the United States. On
that basis we have the right to insist
on cutting down at least 20,000 square
miles from tlie Indian acreage and
tr.at portion should be taken, if pos
sible from that part in, the north con
tuining the coal deposits, and tlie tinv
ber acreage. If the United States de
sires to retain the title to that lan I,
ab I think they will, and it would b'j
a good tnins my friends, it will be ob-
atory upon the government to furn
cheap power to every section of
Arizona. If the United States should
open these coal lands under the pres
t-nt law, which is now in effect, it
would mean that every citizen would
have a right to his quota of that coal
lar.d, but going on the assumption that
the United States government would
retain ownership of the coal land, be
cause the theory of the conservation
ists is to retain it under federal con
tioi, which is wise and will prove ben
eficial ultimately, they will put this
national iwwer fund sufficient to de-
elope the agricultural and mineral
resources of Arizona.
In the valleys of Pima county the
Santa Cruz and Rillito valleys, we have
water near the surface. We have this
same combination in the mesa lands
of Yuma county and in certain lands
In Maricopa, in Santa Cruz, and Co
chise, and up in Yavapai county in th?
Gila valley, along the Little Colorado
River in X.ivajo, and Coconino and
Apache counties. We have worked out
a plan, and I mnke the statement ad
viscdle. that the United States gov
ernment can build newer plants that
will supply power to every section in
This is a dry statement, friends, but
I think you will be interested.
I think you will be wis to listen to
it. because if I do not have the chance
to do this, to put this Into effect, yon
can call upon some future congress
man to work out the details of the
plan which I am suggesting. The gov
ernment can build a 10.000 horsepower
but in thei'',ant- sounds large, but they
can deliver power a mean distance op
11', miles from that plant, at a cost of
twenty-five to forty dollars per horse
power per year. It means that you
can irrigate at a. cost of fifty cents
per irrigation, or not to exceed three
dollars i?r acre. You people who own
large mines or extensive real estate in
Tucson today, or agricultural acreage
in the Salt River vallev or in Yuma
county, you may not be interested in
these things, because he who owns
these things has sufficient money that
h may roam at will over the world.
Rut we have in Arizona 200,000 peo
ple. We have only 60,000 males, over
21 years of age.
We have board of trade and cham
bers of commerce that are calling for
the jieople of the east and of the world
over, to come into Arizona. Where
are you joing to keep th?m after they
come here? We have no running
streams but what the water lias been
appropriated for 20 or 30 years. We
have no large mineral showings but
what have been located for twenty to
thirty years past. The mineral land
we are going to make valuable, and the
agricultural lands, we have got to do
a great deal of work and that means
a question that I offer, and which lias
been worked out in detail by the able
assistance of Mr. Cameron and Mr.
Jack William. I believe that one prob
lem is going to make possible tlie ir
rigation immediately within a decade
or over ,3,000.000 acres in Arizona.
Under intensive cultivation, that
may support, and will approximately
support 1.500,000 people, and there Is
enough power, consumed on the basis
I stated a moment ago, locked up in
the coal fields in the north, to take
care of that population for a period
o:' over 2,000 years. If you want to cut
it down to 3,000 years, it means that
we may have enough coal to furnish
employment for four to six million (peo
ple in- Arizona. . We have the best
soil on earth; we have large quantities
o" water, hut we have to ipmnp it. Tlie
one problem that I have mentioned
namely, this question of power, and
my friends I know it is a drv subject,
foi some of ou know it would be eas
ier to quote some of the gems of
Shakespeare, or some of the odes of
Cicero or talk about the problems of
the Syrian desert, that have leen

Cameron, Jack Williams and Hoval

until March 1. 1913, by that time this
