THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 12, 1896.
7 AFTER THE CONGRESS. Excursions Will be Run to California and the Grand Canyon. N The natural resources of the won derful state of California and its un rivaled climate have been written about inunierable times, nevertheless, it will not be out of place to refer to' them again at this time, as the dele gates and visitors at the Fifth Nation al Irrigation Congress at Phoenix, Ari zona, December 15 to 17, will have an opportunity of personally inspecting some of the more renowned points, es pecially in southern California. Af ter the close of the congress excursions will be made to Los Angeles, Riverside, Redlands and several other towns for the purpose of showing what can be accomplished with a combination of California climate, fertile soil and wa ter. The model colonies will undoubtedly attract the most attention from th5se who are in any way interested in the movement of population from cities to country homes and its relation to irri gation, and also its relation to the wel fare of the nation at large. The com munity settlements in California have been a success, though possibly not as great a success as their founders hoped for, but they clearly demonstrate- that the associative principle will underlie all future development in reclaiming the arid lands of the west. Colonization and irrigation go hand in hand. Nearly, or indeed, every ef fort to establish a dry-land colony in California has ended in failure. Prob ably the -earliest notable experiment in the colony line was in 1857, at the time the first grape craze swept over the state. Some German mechanics in San Francisco were infected with the vineyard fever, and not one of them could bear the expense or had the nec essary experience to plant and bring to maturity a twenty-acre vineyard. After considerable discussion they der cided upon what was then an original plan, and which may be said to be the pattern for modern colonies. One of their members was delegated to visit southern California, investigate and report. A tract of 1,200 acres was con tracted for at about $1.50 an acre, a superintendent chosen, and under his directions the tract was laid out, town site surveyed and the whole area planted with trees and vines in such manner that when the colonists took possession of their property, each twenty acres should have the same area of the different varieties of fruit The members of the colony remained at work in San Francisco until the vines began to bear fruit, and then moved on their little farms, which were now self-sustaining. Such in brief is the history of the Anaheim colony, which will probably be one of the points visited by the ir rigation congress delegates. The success of Anaheim was follow ed by the founding of other colonies, some of which have become known the world over. The casual visitor or tourist who is unacquainted with the miracles irri gation has wrought will be inclined to think that he is being given a modern version of Andersen's fairy tales in stead of every day truth. It may stretch his belief in th veracity of the narrator beyond the limit when he is told that this superb state produces annually 70,000,000 pounds of raisins, 30,000,000 pounds of prunes, 8,000 car loads of oranges, 20,000,000 gallons of wine, 26,000,000 pounds of beet sugar, not to mention the other fruit, vege table and cereal crops. And all of these products dependent, in a large meas ure, upon artificial watering to bring them to maturity. But if the visitor is not interested in such practical matters he will be amply repaid for the trip by the sights and scenes along the way, or he can Join one of the excursions which will visit the Grand Canyon, where he will find some of the grandest and most imposing scenery in the world.

Allen, of Idaho Springs, Colo., the successful mine operator, has made another important strike in the General Thomas mine, but to find the ore body she has displayed more grit in prospecting and development than hundreds of men would show. In this case the work is beginning to tell with big results. She has given the property her personal attention and has managed the mine. She has con stantly visited the mine, inspected the formations, and has no equal in the state among the women for her knowl edge of mineral and vein formation. In the lower level of the mine She had drifts extended on a mineral streak which did not show good values. Then prosperity began, until finally, some thirty days ago, she ordered the men to begin a crosscut through a porphyry dyke, which lay parallel with the streak, to see what lay beyond it. Within twenty feet she passed through the porphyry and encountered ore. To day there are two classes being saved, car load shipments of which have just been made through the ore buying con cerns. The richer streak is five inches wide. and averages $150 per ton; the second class is from ten to fifteen inchtvj wide and runs $60 per ton, and fov foot of the porphyry dyke is carrying pay val ues thirty tons of which has jup teen run at the Mixsell mill as a ' jst --m it was saved $300, which is 1 - Clear Creek porphyry.
