Bright and early Monday morning
Pro Hill, Mr. Cook, Eev.

their horses and started on a two
days trip across the Gila rango of

after manj' hills and valloys had

Thoy traveled all day in tho hope
of reaching thoir destination, but
as tho day drow to a closo and they

Editor Guardian: Did you
over mount tho baby train at Clifton
bent on a trip for Moronci?
you have? well, so have I. I did it
this morning, and I noted tho genial
countonanco of tho veteran conductor-engineer,
put up tho first engine that ever
ran on tho baby guago road. I
noted, after starting, tho many
curves and very stoop grade of tho
road, tho water in Chaso creek
colorod blue with copper. A herd
of goats feeding whoro the cows and
horses could not go. I noticed
that tho train had to stop for tho
baby ongino to got its breath- I
noticed tho other train . Mr. Gambols,
coining behind. I noticed
no I didn't, for a cinder had stoppod
tho noticing process, but when my
lookers woro ready to servo mo
again,tho othor train had come up
and was puffing away behind, helping
us along, but wo aro now at
tho foot of incline
whore wo meet tho general Marion
Gillis, who novor refusod to give
you a rido up the inclino and never
refused a cigar (traveling public
take notice) Well two cars aro
about ready to start up tho inclino
and wo take our seat on tho
platform on tho front of tho
car, that is about ono foot square.
Wo are admonished, if wo woro
nover a passenger on the inclino before.
Not to raiso our heads
abovo tho car whilo passing through

caso bo forced to part with it. Tho
signal comos from tho top of the
inclino, "all is ready" and tho
start is made. Wo oxperienco
just a littlo excitement, similar I
suppose, to that iolt by tho India
tigor hunters, or to that in going
up in a captivo baloon.
On tho top of tho inclino which
is 3,000 ft. long wo meet tho good
naturod Mr. Chapman, tho man at
tho holm, who gives us a hearty
hand shako, also MivNichols, Supt.
of tho Longfellow mine, who had
a closo call for his lifo, a short
timo ago, by a of tho mine
that covered him complotoly except
his head; he was taken out
badly bruised, but ho has so far recovered
as to bo ablo to bo around
'tending to tho business of tho mine.
Wo also met Henry Fowler,
formorly of tho valloy, who is now
ono of Mr. Nichols' ablo lioutonants.
Wo next enter tho cab of tho
baby train, on top of tho inclino
in company with tho ongineer,
Mr McLoan,and wo aro soon in Mor

Reservoirs Being Constructed to Irrigate
800 Acres of Fertile Land
Near the Foot of Mt. Graham.
TIie'Boys are Working Hard to Slake It
The Most Attractive Place In the
The Cluff Bros., of Pima, aro
now working on thrco largo reser
voirs on their ranch, about eleven
miles west of Safford, at tho baso
of old Graham, and expect to have
them finished in time to empond a
portion of tho spring floods as they
come down Ask creok. The larger
of these, when finished, will cover
about 12 acres of ground, and tho
stono wall, which is being constructed
inside of a heavy levy, at
the mouth of tho reservoir, will bo
about 20 feot high. Tho next
largest will cover about 5 acres,
whilo tho smallest will embrace
about 2 acres, the levies to bo constructed
in tho same way as the
larger ono. Tho water will bo ta
kon from those rcsorvoirs by means
of flood-gates placed in tho bottom
of tho levies.
This is a move in tho right di
rection; but tho Cluff boj's do not
intend to stop lioro, as noxt year
thoy oxpect to tunnol into the
mesas to see whether water can bo
procured in that way or not, and
if they aro successful it will bo a
great thing for tho valloy, for if
water can be obtained in this way
at this point thoro is no reason why
it cannot bo found by tunneling in-
to any of tho largo mesas adjacont
to the valloy. it t can be onco
demonstrated that water ci

trying to mako somothingof it, and
now their labors aro about to bo
crowned with success. They have
about 800 acres of good land and
thoy don't mean to bo satisfied until
thoy socuro water in sufficient
quantities to irrigate it all. They
have about thirtyfivo hundred living
fruit trees of different kinds, tho
most of which were planted out
Aside from their farming interests,
thoy have been laboring for
the past two years in the construc
tion of a wagon road to tho top of
Mt. Graham, which will be completed
by tho middle of .May, and
by tho 15th of June thoy will havo
in running order, a first-class saw
mill, planted amidst tho towering
pines on tho top of tho mountain.
The building of this road was a gigantic
undertaking, and many a
time has it been remarked that tho
road would nover be finished unless
someone with capital would inter
est themselves in it and put it
through. But tho fact that tho
road is now almost completed, and
part of the machinory for tho mill
is now at Pima, demonstrates tho
fact that push and muscle is about
all that is required to accomplish
anything in Arizona, an abundanco
of which these boys possess.
Another New itullroad.
During 1894, Arizona led tho
United States in length of railway
lino built, her mileage being 159.
Of this tho greator amount 93 miles,

for tho Gila Valley Globo &North-
Tho last named road starts from
Bowie Station, on tho Southern Pacific
runs northward to
28 miles, thonco west to Pima
1G miles. Stopped it has been at
this point for some months waiting
tho passage by congress of a right
of permission across tho San Carlos
Indian reservation. This has beon
secured and construction work
will at onco b'o resumed, not to
stop till tho rich copper camp of
Globo, 140 miles from Bowio is
reached. Tho lino taps the fertile
valley of tho upper Gila. A spur
of twenty miles would penetrate a
grand timber district, and coal of
excellent quality lies ucar tho lino
of tho road south of San Carlos
Tho cattlo industry will also furnish
Globe district, ono of tho most
highly mineralized spots on tho
earth, will furnish an immenso
amount of freight. It is belcived
that on the completion of the railroad
at least ten copper furniccs
will be put in operation at Globe,
meaning a freight traffic of 200 tons
per day in coke, bullion, and supplies.
Added to this there are in
the district many small high grade
silver ledges, tho ores of which can
bo shipped by rail at a proht.
The road, will therefore bo a
money maker from the start. It is
a standard gauge, independently
constructed by William Garland
and is well constructed -and equipped.

China will havo to pay in silver or

it is feared that the rato of exchange

A Friendly Greeting Given Us After Our
And still another Arizona
has started, and tho first
number of tho Graham Guardian,'
published at Safford, lies on our
table. The paper is published
every Saturday -by tho Guardian
Publishing Company. It is a well
printed, edited and generally compiled
newspaper. It is for frco silver

wishes of tho Courier in its struggle
for Arizona and itself. Prescott

Tho Graham County Guardian
has reached our table, and wo must
say that wo wero, agreeably surprised
at its neat appearance, and
the really creditable get-up of tho

holds to tho standard it has adopted
in tho initial number, tho
Guardian will provo one of tho
best papers in tho Territory and
well worthy tho support oftho rich

Tho first number of the GRAnAM
Guardian came to hand this weok.
It is full of reading matter and is
a compliment to its editors. Prospector.
The Graham Guardian, tho now
Graham county paper, published
at Safford, made its appearanco last
week. It is a neat looking paper
and probably will give the Bulletin
many a hard rub for the official
printing in Graham county Western
safford has a paper.
The Graham Guardian, of
ford, Graham county, is tho last
weekly to join the newspaper list
of tho Southwest. It is a 7 column,
four page paper, nicely printed
and containing a full budget of news
of tho towns of tho upper Gila
valloy. Tho publishers aro John
J. Birdno and Harry B. Fox,
though neither aro listed as editor.
It would seem that Graham county
with her large and concentrated
population could well afford two
newspapers, and to the now sheet,
if well managed, should como an
abundant sharo of success. Gazette
Graham County has a now paper.
It is called the Guardian and is
