WEDNESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 8, 1913.

Will Use Pumped Water.
Satisfied, now, apparently with
government pumped water for their
lands, the Indians of the Gila River
reservations have requested the re
clamation service through Mr.
Thackeray, agent at Sacaton, to
complete immediately the project
which was left unfinished last
spring. Director Newell of the
United States reclamation service
left yesterday for Sacaton to look
over the ground, taking with him
Engineer R. E. Pcabody of the Salt
River valley force, who will examine
the work and report an estimate on
the completion of the project. The
work now done includes seven
pumps, finished, a well, canal and
some laterals extending from the
canal to the land lines of the In
dians. The fact the Indians are asking
for the pump project does not ne
cessarily mean they have given up
hope of getting the San Carlos dam
and reservoir. They still hope for
that with a tenacious hope; but they
also see the necessity of finish
ing the wells and canal lines so the
floods of the river can be supple
mented by clear water. The objec
tion to the pumped water on the
ground it contains salt in sufficient
quantity to destroy the crops seems
to have been forgotten, though there
was a strong fight made before the
congressional investigation commit
tee on that matter last spring.
Was He Drunk?
Reading the report of Dr. A. C
Kingsley, superintendent of the state
asylum for the insane, and issued
by the board of control as its De
cember bulletin, Carlos Romero was
arrested last evening suspected of
being drunk. Careful investigation
of the prisoner when he reached the
jail, failed to reveal the oder of red
wine on his breath and while the
charge was not lifted, there is a sus
picion that some other influence
than whisky may have turned his
Romero was seated upon the San
ta Fe tracks, when the policeman
who later arrested him hove in
sight. The officer paused and over
heard words that sounded some
thing like this: "It is the general
belief that insanity, the most fear
ful affliction that besets humanity,
is a hopeless condition and one in
which prevention is of no value."
The English of Romero was not
good but the policeman understood
and started in amazement.
When he revived from the first
shock the apparently intoxicated
man was re' ding something which
sounded like "and many a person
would be restored to health without
having been committed to an asy
lum." There was a shudder notice
able spreading over Romero's frame
as he quoted "From 30 to 35 per
cent of insanity is directly or in
directly caused by alcohol or drugs."
Then he turned a page and found
.where it says "Hard work never
caused a nervous breakdown, crily
when one undertakes work that is
beyond his mental or physical ca
pacity is serious harm done." And
when he came to the line "Worry is
quite an important- factor of some
forms of insanity," he fell in a heap
muttering "That I should worry
nd get wrinkles?" and then the
patrol wagon rounded the corner
and the man and the report were
bundled off to the police station.
Cattlemen Want More Laws.
The cattlemen of Arizona are go
ing to lake a determined effort dur
ing the sessions of the next legisla
ture to have a number of matters
of importance to the cattle business
'attended to, and a number of reme
dial laws passed. These matters are
now in the hands of the legislative
committee of the Arizona Cattle
Growers association and will be
drafted into such shape as will per
mit them to be submitted to the
legislature at least for discussion if
not for actual passage. Many of
them will also be submitted to Gov
ernor Hunt so that he may embody
them into his call as subjects for the
especial attention of the legislators.
Big Cattle Deals.
William Riggs, member of the
board of supervisors, and a large
cattle dealer of the Sulphur Springs
valley, is here today closing a big
cattle deal which will involve the
sale of about 6,000 head of cattle.
Mr. Riggs stated that owing to
the high price of cattle the ranchers
would not place their stock on the
market, therefore there was a great
shortage and this was the largest
sale, if it went through, for this year
in the Sulphur Springs Valley.
Cattleman From Texas.
R . Morris, a prominent cattle
man from Amarillo, Tex., accom
panied by his wife, is here looking
over the cattle market and making
purchases for his ranches in Texas.
Mr. Morris says that the cattle
market is higher now than it ever
has been in the last 20 years, and
that there is very little stock on
the market in this vicinity.
He has several big deals on here
which he expects to close in a few
days, but refuses at the present time
to give any of the details.
He expects to be here for about
a week before he returns home.
Tuck Potter, a Sulphur Springs
rancher, arrived in the city yester
day morning and told of a narrow
escape from death which he had un
dergone but a few days previous.
According to Potter, he was driv
ing a team to Jim Hunt's ranch
where he had some business to
transact. On reaching a thicket near
the place, he heard a rifle shot and
a bullet whiz just over his head.
This was followed by two more' in
rapid succession and turning about
he saw a Mexican with a rifle point
ed at him just in the act of shoot
ing once more. At this point Potter
alleges, his horses ran away with
him and two more bullets whizzed
by his head.
Town is Growing.
The total value of buildings in
Tucson, whose erection was begun
in the year just closed, amounted
to $207,753, according to the re
cords of permits. This was $41,621
more than in 1911. If the $65,000
passenger station of the El Paso &
Southwestern railroad, which is
projected, but for which a permit
has not been taken, out, is added,
the total is $272,753, or $106,621
more than the preceding year.
The permits issued during Decem
ber totalled $19,545.
This included the $13,000 shops
of the Southern Pacific
Mrs. J. K. Shahan took out a
permit for a $3500 residence on
south Fourth avenue and S. H.
Brewster a permit for a $2000 resi
dence on Sixth avenue.
Will Build Fine Homes.
One of the largest land deals re
cently made ' in farm lands in the
immediate vicinity of Tucson has
just been closed through the pur
chase of 500 acres of the Knapp and
Benedict ranches, located on the
Oracle road, 3J4 miles north of the
city, by Nathan Kendall and William
A. Talcott, son of Wait Talcott of
These purchasers expect to im
prove the tract and to erect two of
the finest homes in this section of
the country. The entire tract will
be put under cultivation and irriga
tion. Road Fund Shrinking.
Scarcely more than $10,000 will
be available from the state fund
for the construction of highways
in Pima count', according to the
latest advices received by J. W.
Estill, member of the board of sup
ervisors. It was supposed last sum
mer that $17,000 would be the share
of Pima county.
It is estimated that the city saved
between $200 and $300 by substitut
ing a "city wood pile for the chain
gang, according to City Recorder
Sowan. The bill Jot the wood that
has kept violators of city ordinances
busy for several months came yes
terday and it was -only $15. The
recorder estimated that to have
bought wood and Tiircd laborers to
cut it up would have cost between
$200 and $300.
"It has not on! been economy
for the city," said the recorder, "but
it has furnished splendid exercise
for the prisoners and I believe
that the man who has wielded an
axe on a knotted, section of mes
quite will think twice before he
commits an act that will send him
back to the wood pile.''
The city has a large supply of
wood, enough to last all the winter
and when it is split finely it makes
splendid fuel, though a free Ameri
can would not cut the wood for
what it is worth. Chance remarks
dropped by prisoners indicate that
tramps as far cast as Chicago and
as far west as San Francisco know
of the municipal wood pile, per
haps by letter or word of mouth
from those who have served time
here cutting wood.

SALT LAKE, Jan. 2. A commit
