Capt. W. F. Meeks, manager of the
many properties of the United Gold
and Platinum Mines company, was
hero on business Wednesday. The
company are making extensive im
provements on their properties in
Cataract canyon. The wagon road
from Bright Angel, which they have
been constructing, will be completed
in a few weeks. This road will en
able the company to transport their
supplies conveniently and cheaply to
their mines, as well as giving access
to Cataract canyon for the tourist.
The Cataract canyon contains, per
haps, the finest scenery in Arizona,
but is visited by but comparatively
few tourists, owing to its inaccessa
bility. It will be of undoubted interest to
the residents of Flagstaff, and tho im
mediate vicinity thereof, to know and
become familiarized with the pres
ent prospects as to tho condition of
tho reservoir and the probable water
supply of the coming season. The
writer, under the guidance of John W.
Weatherford, a residence of this sec
tion for the past twenty years, and
whoso business Interests and close as
sociation with the ranchers and his
familiarity with weather conditions
make him an authority, made a per
sonal examination as to circumstances
obtaining to the above matters, which
are of considerable importance, and
interviewed several ranchers in the
surrounding territory. At each and
every ranch visited or passed prosper
ity was the inevitable stamp of suc
cess, and that a good crop is assured,
in view of tho late spring snows and
rains, is beyond the question of a
doubt. Especially does this apply to
the ranches of Jesso Gregg, Ander
son, and that of McMillan, just north
of this city. These places 'deserve
especial mention, as they appeared to
great advantage from an optimistic
view. Now, as to the possible or
probable water supply of the city.
Although tho gauge at tho reservoir
registers a trifle lower than is usual
at this time of year, no one need feel
apprehensive. Thero is plenty of
water to last during tho dry season.
No better assurance, criterion, or
barometer of a good business season
could be had than that the ranchers
are satisfied, which means success to
