OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER.
SATURDAY, SEPT. 9, 1893.
Said John R. Grant, ot Grant
Bros., the well-known railroad build
ers, who by the way is one of the
mo3t careful, conservative and able
observers on the coast, to the Editor
of the Sentinel last Saturday: Af
ter carefully looking over the situa
tion, I am fully convinced that for
some time to come, irrigation projects
are going to take the lead among our
best and most conservative monied
men. They have millions for irriga
tion works, where they have thous
ands to put into mines or railroads.
Capitalists have arrived at the point,
where they see the absolute safety in
every legitimate enterprise, which
tends to bring water and soil to
gether, among which there are no
failures, but which bring to the in
vestor a large, steady and sure return
every year. Arizona with thorn,
stands in tho front rank, while Yuma
with her grand and never failing old
Colorado, with her vast area of rich
valley and mesa soil, her incompar
able climate, her early and delicious
fruits, ahead of them all by weeks, if
not months; stands first on the list.
I have great confidence in the future
of Yuma's irrigation projects. They
will receive the attention their merits
deserve, which will be among the first
to be carried through to a successful
The construction of vast storage
reservoirs in Ton to Basin and at the
Buttcs in Pinal county, will mark the
beginning of the solution, of the water
question in Arizona, that in course
of time will be extended to other por
tions where natural facilities exist.
The matter of impounding the flood
-waters has been thoroughly discussed
and it presents features that will in
time rrdeem nearly all the arid lands
of the territory. Tucson Enterprise.
Eew Mexico, says tho Phoenix
Herald, is in as bad or worse plight
than Arizona in the way of being
bam-boozled out of a display at the
"World's Fair. That Territory put in
$40,000 and has pretty near as much
to show for it as Arizona has for her
$30,000. Five thousand dollars
honestly expended in purchasing a
display of Arizona or New Mexican
cereals and fruits would have made a
decent display and given the world
an idea of what we are producing.
We have bought a whole lot of ser
vice, however, and maybe some ex
perience; in fact it looks as though
our entire reward is experience, tho
other follows as usual, having the
money. Florence Tribune.
Br means of irrigation crop3 can be
manufactured as surely aa wool can
be carded, spun and woven into cloth.
Sunshine, air and water are the three
constituents the soil requires, com
bined with good seed and cultivation
to make farming an independent oc
cupation. The farmer by irrigation
on our arid lands is a manufacturer of
food products; not a waiter upon the
moods and pranks of nature. He
masters phenomenal and makes nat
ural law his servant. The average
farmer on 1G0 acres within the humid
area clears from 600 to SI, 000 per
annum; the same farmer in the arid
region from Montana to Arizona and
from Colorada to California, accord
ing to his crop? clears on 100 acres
from 82,000 to $4,000 per annum.
A man who has forty acres of land
in cultivation in thi3 valley is able
to make an independent living, re
gardless of tho price of silver. He
can raise his own bread, meat, vege
tables, fruit, eggs, chickens, butter,
What this country needs as much
as anything else to make it prosper, is
more forty-acre farmers. With forty
acres of Arizona land, well cultivated
and under water, an industrious man
can make an independent living. No
one family can consume the product
of that acreage and there is nothing
that grows that cannot be grown to
add' to family comfort. Senator
Stewart held the same opinion when
here. But, unfortunately, nine out
of every ten of the land owners in
Arizona, Graham county excepted
are land poor. They think if forty
acres are good, eight times that
amount must be eight times better.
Unless of abundant means it is im
possible to care for half the quantity,
and the result is a big farm and a big
mortgage. Give Arizona 500,000
families "with forty-acre holdings
and-there is-more land than that in
southern Arizona and Arizona
would speedily become one of the
richest states in the union. Tucson
People go wild over the product of
the Harqua Hala mine3 without
knowing the actual output of the
property. The fact of the case is the
mines are very small- producers.
There is a thirty stamp mill pounding
away night and day, yet the bullion
produced monthly falls short of
825,000. Now, we have had mines
produce more than that per month
for years, but nothing was ever
thought of it. 825,000 production
with a thirty-stamp mill should not
be considered a very wonderful thing.
The Miner is away off in its state
ment. The least that the Harqua
Hala mines have produced in any one
month for a long time, was $55,000,
and the product has reached S1,000
for a single month. Even when run
ning on tho refuse dump with only 20
stamps, tho mill never turned out less
than $25,000 and averaged 828,000
per month, while running on that
grade of ore. The out put at tho
present time a a little more then
2000 per day.
We had the pleasure of spending
Wednesday night at this famous
old camp on the Colorado, where
so man' hundreds of thousands
of pounds of rich ore have been
shipped to Yuma, for re-shipment
both east and west for reduction.
There are now but three families
on the east side and four on the
west side of the river. About 45
men are emplored in the mines
20 miles distant, from which the
ore is hauled to Castle Dome on
wagons. Besides these, P. B.
Hodges has 40 men cutting wood
and delivering it on the bank of
the river, ready for shipment to
Picacho. There being no school in
the place, Juan Maclis has em
ployed a lady to teach his child
ren at his residence. The wood
choppers, miners, and teamsters
give the place an air of business.
Hodges Bros, have a beautiful
ranch on the west side of the river
just above the landing. The Colo
rado river Apache Indian's corn
and beau fields are looking well.
The wild hogs roam along the
river banks at pleasure, and seem
ingty without fear, but run away
if the steamer approaches too near
them. Live stock of all kinds is
looking well and doing finely.
Judge F. L. Ewing and O. F.
Townsend have received notice that
they are wanted as witnesses in the
case of "Walter T. Esmond, the
would-be great fruit grower on the
glaring sands of Glamis. whose
trial will take place early in Oc
tober in Chicago. He is accused of
using the U. S. mail for unlawful
"While at Picacho we were pleas

who reside there. Mr. M. has liv

trict by his perseverance and
works. The friends of Mrs. M.

Joe Peterson and another Dane
are the only white men who ever
went to the top of the mountain
peak known as Picacho, plainly
seen from Yuma. Peterson built a
monument eight feet high of loose
rocks, which can be seen from

Ysidro Mandeville and' his
brother, in one week, with a dr'
washer, took $120 in gold dust and
nuggets, out of the Picacho placer
There is more Catarrh in this sec
tion of the country than all other
diseases put together until the last
few years was supposed to be incur
able. For a great many years doctors
pronounced it a local disease, and pre
scribed local remedies, and by con
stantly failing to cure with local
treatment, pronounced it 'incurable.
Science has proven catarrh to be a
constitutional disease and therefore
requires constitutional treatment.
Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by
F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo. Ohio, is
the only constitutional cure on the
market. It is taken internally in
doses from 10 drops to a teaspoonful.
It acts directly on the blood and
mucous surfaces of the system. They
offer 'one hundred dollars for auy case
it fails to cure. Send for circulars
and testimonials. Address,

TniiEE is now in Mohave county a
party of gentlemen looking over the
country along the Colorado river,
with a view of putting in an immense
irrigating canal. Tho only place
from which a canal can be taken i3 at
Bull Head Point. From there
thousands of acres above tho Need
less can he irrigated. Should it be
thought feasible the Grand Canyon of
the Colorado will be dammed up to
such a height as to allow water to
run over Wallapai and Sacramento
Valleys. The thousands of acres of
fertile land to be reclaimed would
make tho promoters of the scheme
immensely rich. Thio part of what
was once called the Great American
Desert, would soon become one of the
most beautiful and richest countries

A LONG PROCESSION
of diseases start from a torpid liver
and impure blood. Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery cures ev
ery one of them. It prevents them,
too. Take it, as you ought, -when
you feel the first symptoms (lan
guor, loss of appetite, dullness, de
pression) and you'll save yourself
from something serious.
In building up needed flesh and
strength, and to purify and enrich
tho blood, nothing can equal the
"Discovery." It invigorates the
liver and kidneys, promotes all the
bodily functions, and brings back
health and vigor. For Dyspepsia,
" Iiiver Complaint," Biliousness, and
all Scrofulous, Skin and Scalp Dis
eases, it i3 the only remedy that's
guaranteed to benefit or cure, or
