Phoenix, Ariz., September 26 Pre
liminary arrangements have' been
made for the building of a canal on
the lower Gila river, with a heading
about seven miles above Agua Cali
ente, which will irrigate between 15,
000 and 20,000 acres of the richest
land in Arizona, lying on the .north
side of that stream. The land is lo
cated partly in Maricopa and partly in
Pima county. I
The canal is to be built by the re
cently organized Palomas Highland
.Water Users' Association.
J. E. Nelson and W. P. McNealy, of
this city are the two principal promot
ers of the project Eastern capitalists
are supplying financial backing. The
names of these capitalists have not
been made public, but they paid a visit
to Phoenix and the lower-Gila a short
It is estimated that it will cost not
less than $250,000 to carry through the
project as planned and place water
upon the vast acres of fertile soil, that
needs only water to make it as pro
ductive as any in the world.
The head of the canal is to be in

low the bed of the river, therefore no
dam will be necessary. Only a baffle,
consisting of piles driven into the
sand in order to pile sand up in the
river bottom will be needed.
From the river the canal will ex
tend out toward the mesa and thence
westward. Along most of its length
which will be twelve miles, it will be
between five and six miles away from
the Gila. At one point it will be only
six mile3 from the Southern Pacific
It is expected that in the ordinary
course of events enough water will
flow into the river the keep the canal
running full. But the promoters of
the project are going to take no
chances of drouth. A short distance
below the head there will be a pump
ing plant, at a point where water is
only a few feet below the surface.
This pump will be capable of lift
ing 60,000 gallons of water a minute.
Whenever the water in the river fails,
the pump will be started.
Gas will be use to furnish power
for operating the pump. This gas will
be generated from crude oil piped
from Sentinel, twelve miles away In
a straight line. This pipe line is one
of the most extensive features of the
day, into the water. Five were drown
ed. The bodies were recovered,
Twelve alive, but unconscious, were

pass' home in which. Sheriff Preston

sons of Malpass were killed. The offi
cers had gone to the Malpass home
to arrest his sons.
