An Intere"tiner Letter.
Editor World: While on a trip
u.p the Colorado river,"- .iot long
since, on the steamer Mohave, that
veteran river man and superintend
ent of steamers for thirty-six years
on that stream,' Capt. I, Polhariius,
pointed out to me, several points
that had been selected as the head
gates of the great Ifuma irrigating
canals, the two at Pot Holes, one
the place selected for the great
canal from there to the New River
Valley of a million acres in San
Diego county. The second, that
recently located by ex-Resident
Engineer Hawgood, of the S. P. R.
R. Co., for an English company.'
Another was Geo. W. Norton's
rock, just below Castle Dome,
where he intended to take out the
water and irrigate all the country
east and south of Yuma. The
fourth was at Hinton's Rock, just
below Eureka canyon where the
English Co , under Maj. Buchanan
Scott of the Royal Engineers
of the English army proposed to
start their system of "great steel
pipes, eleven feet in diameter, with
which to supply the same vast and
fertile Yuma county, as that pro
posed by engineer Norton, The
fifth was another ..joint at trie
mouth of Eunka canyon which the
Rockwood-Boatty combine" Had
Hinton's Rock was the first place
examined by the electrical ..eruji-i
neers, as a place that might be used
for putting in a wheel for the
purpose of running a dynamo for
manufacturing electricity by the
current of the Colorado, for power
and light to be used in mining,
hauling and milling the ores of the
great mining belts that begin (on
the river banks at the mouth of
Eureka Canyon, that on the east
or Arizona side being silver, while
that on the Picachb or California
side is gold, the mines on either
side coming down in places to with
in 100 feet of trie river. At
Eureka Rocks, just above Hinton's
Capt. Polhamus called my atten
tion to the second place examined
by the eleotric engineers. At
Swain's Mill site, just below Pica
cho. half a mile, was the third, all
three good. At Barrier Rocks, two
miles above Picacho, and half way
to Norton's, was the fourth place
and the chief of all. On the crest
of one of the grand piers built by
nature, out in the river, stood a
tall pole from which floated a white
banner that can be seen for miles.
At the foot of the pole was a box,
placed on a monument of stones,
containing the notice of a location
of a.inrll site for an electric plant.
While we pronounced" the other
locations all good, 3ret this capned
the climax. ..As 4we went, up the
river we saw a dozen other good
places, but nothing.to be compared"
with that at Barrier Rock's. Here
are three chajinels 6Q to. 1.25 feet in
width, neither ot which are. ever
dry, the water always being from
50 to 110 feet wide and from six to
ten feet deep, with a current at the
lowest stage of the river of ' from
three and one half to' five miles per
hour. The sides of each ar;e lined
with solid rocks. On each side of
each channel nature, in her lavish
magnificence, has reared grand
piers from 35 to 75 feet in height,
built out of the solid porphry and
granite, firm-as the eternal hills to
which they are fastened. Theso
piers only need leveling down a
little smoothing orsdressing up to
fit the great pillar blocks that will
rest on them, and they are ready,
for the purpose which nature de-
sighed for them Tho foundations
for the grandest electric plant in
But why all this? Only for
these grand reasons: Upon this
side of the Colorado river, and near
by are the great-gold mines of Pica
cho, French Gulch, Cariso, Provi
dencia and Mayflower sections. It
is carefully estimated that there
are no less than 100 free milling
gold quartz mines in the area
named that run from 4 up to 100
feet wide, every ton of which will
pay $5 in the mill. At Pot Holes,
Cargo Muchacho, Gold Rock, and
at Chuckawalla tliere are 100 more.
Then take the great areas of placer
ground, where men today, and for
more than forty years have made a
living dry washing with the gold
pan, batteam or little dry washer,
all of which can be worked by the
cheap power which electricity will
give, and there is not another such
a chance for the investment in an
electric plant on the coast.
But more still. Power can be
tr&nsmitted to Julian Banner, and
all of that section of San Diego
county, with which to work the
mines in that well-known mining
. There are on the Arizona side of
the river the great silver Tjelt of
Eureka right on the river's bank;
then that of Castle- Donie, twenty
miles away; then Silver District
an area covering a belt forty miles
in length by ten to twelve miles
wide, of the richest silver mines on
the coast: mines of . free milling,
lead and silver, and those carrying
gold, silver and copper all told,
more than 100 of thorn, and nearly
all within five miles of the Color
ado and ten miles of the spot where
will be built the electric plant.
Etigher up the river are the rich
gold mines in the Plomosa District;
those around Ehrenberg and those
across the river, twenty miles west
of that town,, and the great .gold
cement fields at Tyson's Wells,
covering an area of twelve to
thirty-five miles arid to the depth
of more than twenty feet, and
which pays from $5 to $7.50 per
ton. Taking" these last fields,
which are as' large as the great Pi
cacho, Gold Rock and Chuckawal
la gold fields, .and at a glance one
can tee that 10.000 Btam'pa can be
set at work within the next two
years if cheap power can be had
with which to mine, haul and" mill
Thus far the rich mines at Har-
qua Hala, Harrisburg, and those
in the Eagle Tail and adjoining
mountains have not been" referred
to, and theso can all be supplied
with power from the same source
from Barrier Rocks.. Water can
either 'be pumped up to the mines
or the ore can be hauled down by
electricity from the mines to the
mills" This at Picacho can be
done for 12 cents per ton for a
50-starnp mill. At Eureka, Silver
District, Clip, Providencia, White
Gold, Red Cloud, it can be done
for less - It costs more than that
to pump. -the water up' to the Carga
Muchacho or Gold Rock Mills. . At
Castle Dome and Chuckawalla it
will cost more.
The groat project ds only this:
At first to put in one wheel at Bar
rier Rocks, to be run by the cur
rent of the Colorado, with, which to
turn the dynamos that will manu
facture the electricity to be used as
power on the mines and mills,
All other powders

furnaoes and reduction works
which will line the river's banks for
miles . The wheel will be suspend
ed from a still bridge built on the
piers which nature has already
constructed, and so attached that
the wheel will rise and fall with
the water in the river without in
terfering with the running of the
dynamos. Wires will be extended
to the mills and mines near by at
'first, then extended as the demand
increases, whore other wheels will
be put in. It is estimated that
100,000-horse power can be had,
p provided the water is properly
husbanded, controlled and used,
without interfering with the navi
gation of the Colorado, as at this
point it has two navigable chan
nels. These undershot wheels can
be put in,' one series below the
other, using the same water over
ana over lor a aistanoe ot more
than a mile. These can be set in
tiers of three each, giving to each
tier 164 feet. There is an abund
ance of room, making 60 wheels,
or 20 tiers of them. If necessary
the number can be doubled, mak
ing 120 wheels. These can be ad
ded to tne nrst wneel or tier, in
single tiers of three wheels each.
It is proposed to -build wheels,
bridges and everything of steel, of
the bestquality. From February till
August th'e current runs from 30 to
15 miles per hour. It is the pres
ent plan, after the first, to -put in
1000 kilomatt generators, larger by
200 llomatts than those now being
build by the General Electric Com
pany for the St. Louis Edison Elec
tric Illuminating Company the
largest thus far constructed.
, - v
A narrow-gauge railroad is also
projected to connect the mines at
Picacho ancf along the Colorado
river with those at Gold Rock and
Cargo Muchacho with the -San
Diego and Phoenix1, and also the
S. P. R. R. at El R o, and on the
Gulf of California at or aear the
mouth of jthe Colorado, and a line
of Binall, lightdrauglit, fast steam
boats from Barrier Rocks to Yuma
all this, too, ih- the.near future.
Some will say that I live, in
"Dream Land." So they said of
Edison and elecricity -only five
years ago. This will all be done
before San. Diego county . is again
divided mark my words. The
most emin'erit ' electricians, the
wealthiest capitalists in th'e coun
try already are laying the plans to
carry out this grand work. Some
of the ablest engineer-? electric,
hydraulic and mining known
have quietly been examining this
project and .pronounce it entirely
feasible, and one that warrants
large returns on the capital invest
ed. They also propose to .furnish
po,ver for irrigating pumping
plants for the vast area l3'ing along
the Colorado river, both above and
below Yuma'. . . . - "
What canals are ever built can
and will be supplied with water by
pumps supplied with power from
the Barrier Rock's electric plant.
The fact .that the most eminent
mining experts are examining the
mining districts referred 'to is an
other proof of the growing interest
in these magnificent mining dif
tricts. -The Electric Company
proposes to furnish all the power
necessar3r for an -of tho plants
built at the mines, together with j
all the lights necessary, for less
than one-half the cost of wood
alone; in fact, in many cases, for
one-fourth of the cost of fuel.
What will not such a project do'
for San Diego county and our city
on the bay? .It is one that will
surely be built. ";r
