Pi (EH MIES FORMALAPPEAL Resolutions Addressed to the President and Congress WANTS DUHSITE PROTECTED Fears the Project of the Chuckawalla Company If Successful Will Prevent Reclamation of Arizona Reservation Lands. (By Tom Shultz.) Parker. Ariz., April 22. ;In view of the great importance attached to the proposition as to whether private cor porations operating under the Carey act, or the reclamation service should handle future projects to reclaim the vast acres of the Colorado River val ley, below this town, the Parker Im provement association last evening met and unanimously adopted the follow ing resolutions: "To the President and Congress of the United States: ( "A Resolution Adopted at a Special Meeting- of the Parker Improvement Association, held at Parker, April 21, 1909: . "Whereas. The valley of the Colo rado river (in Arizona) embraces some two hundred thousand acres of unre claimed agricultural lands (largely covered at present by the Colorado riv er Indian reservation) known to be of great value when the waters of the Colorado river are placed upon the same; and, "Whereas, We understand that in vestigations of United States reclama tion engineers and others have shown that practically only one feasible dam site exists I known as the Narrows, sit uated about twelve miles above Par ker), where water could be conveyed upon all of the lands; and, "Whereas, We are informed that cer tain preliminary investigations have been made by the t'nited States rec lamation service, which has determined the practicability of irrigating this vast acreage by the waters of the Colorado river from said dam site; and, "Whereas, By a recent act of con gress, Arizona and New Mexico were placed in the list of those states gov erned by the Carev act, which grants special privileges to such states to own and control water for reclamation pur poses; and, "Whereas, There is now a bill pend ing in the senate of the t'nited States conveying a right to a private corpo ration to construct a dam across the Colorado river at some point above Parker, for the purpose of power and irrigation; therefore be it "Resolved, That we, as citizens of Arizona and residents of Parker, here by earnestly protest against the pas sage of this, or any similar measure, affecting in any manner whatsoever, the title to any dam site along the Colorado river that might now or here after be required by the l'nited States reclamation service for the proper rec lamation of the aforesaid land3. Fur ther be it "Resolved, That a copy of these res olutions be sent to the president of the United States, the president of the t'nited States senate, the speaker of the house of representatives, the sec retary of the interior, and to Ralph H. Cameron, delegate to congress from Arizona. "PARKER IMPROVEMENT ASSO CIATION. "By C. W. GRAVES, President. "Attest: H. E. Ward, Secretary." While hot saying so in the resolu tion, it Is pretty thoroughly understood that the Chuckawalla Land and Devel opment company, whose principal of fice is at Los Angeles, Cal., Is endeav oring to acquire under the Carey act the only feasible and practicable dam lile on the Colorado river, the owner ship of which would prevent the rec lamation of 200,000 acres of land lying on tiie Arizona siilte of the river. It is stated that the Chuckawalla com pany owns a body of high land back of and below the Blythe estate, fifty miles distant, which caniiot possibly be ir rigated from any other source than the point stated the Narrows twelve miles above Parker. The best advices obtainable at this time, state that the line of the canal of the Chuckawalla cannot cross the divide between Whip ple and Riverside mountains the ele vation of which is fully two hundred feet above the seventy-foot dam which is proposed to be constructed across the river at the Narrows. A bill was recently introduced in the senate by Senator Flint of California, asking ttiat the Chuckawalla Land and Development company be granted the privilege of damming the Colorado river and appropriating its water for power and irrigating purpose.?. This bill was approved by the war department, un der whose protection the waters of the Colorado river rest. To back up this bill, in February last, a bill was passed amending the Carey act to include Ari zona and New Mexico. I say, "to back up this bill." that is my belief, for the reason that the removal of Arizona's arid lands from the reclamation ser vice and turning them over to the beneficent sharpers who might, and are, in this instance, taking advantage of the Carey act. Is nothing more nor less than a gigantic steal of J30.000.000. What are the 200,000 acres of land worth on th Arizona side of the river, if one can't get the water on it? How is the water to be got upon It If one hasn't got the dam site? The people of Parker call upon every lioanl of trade, commercial club and private citizen of the territory to use their best endeavors to prevent u bunch of California politicians from stealing at least $30,000,000 from the territory of Arizona. The success of the Roosevelt and Laguna dams is now well known and the returns from them will, within the next five years, provide sufficient funds for the beginning by the reclamation service of the Parker project. Better to wait twenty years for the govern ment, than have it botched otherwise. Appeal to congress to kill tho Flint Chuckawalla Land and Development company bill. Sure As Fate. Daily events noticed here and there show conclusively the inward work ings of great capitalistic bodies toward the reclamation of the now known wealth of the desert waste. Tears agone in the building of the Southern Pacific and Santa Fe railroads, the jiiain object was to get to the Pacific coast and little heed was given by their engineers to the fertile valleys and mineralized hills through which they staked their lines. In the imme diate desire at that time to reach Cal ifornia, the Souttlern Pacific excluded the rich, fertile valley along the Salt and Gila rivers and the great mineral wealth in the mountains to the north of them. Since that time what has the Southern Pacific to show in the way of development. . One Important town, Yuma, between Tucson and San Bernardino. The Santa Fe was com pelled also to reach the coast and "in so doing it fared a little better than the Southern Pacific, for it had the coal of Gallup, forests of Coconino, the minerals of Mohave county and stock Interests to draw from. Still ft was tne Santa he first to recognize that a cog had been Jumped In the general haste to reach the orange groves of California and that the immediate strip of that country hitherto unexplor ed farther than rumor, lying between the two roads was worthy of expert examination. To accomplish this Frank M. Murphy, some six years ago, out fitted a corps of engineers who spent several months between Wlckenburg and Bengal. Cal. They made a com plete report upon every feature con nected with the route which is now known as the Arizona and California railroad. Being personally acquainted with the principals of that exploration party I was permitted at that time to published such Information as thought to be of interest to tfie public, and therein was expressed the great min eral possibilities adjacent, on both sides of the proposed railroad. The Santa Fe got busy and at once threw down 105 miles of track and at its present terminus, the Colorado river is spanned with a $1,000,000 steel bridge. The mentioning of this bridge in jects another thought. Go and exam ine the Southern "Pacific bridge at Yuma: also that of the Santa Fe, be low the Needles, and then take a look at the bridge at Parker. True and worthy old structures, are the first mentioned crossings of the Colorado river, but they have to a large degree served their time and purpose. Exig encies of the times have demanded al most double the weight of rolling stock, and these bridges, daily growing weak er, were not intended in the beginning to sustain the strain now being put upon them. Their dav is coming, and that this assertion has been recog nized1 by the great developers of pub lic interests and care-takers of Its traffic, I point with assurance to the concrete-steel structure across the Col orado at Parker. Railroad rumors are In the air. With in the last week we have read press reports stating that Spreckels will com mence next month to build east from National t'ity, Cal., to Imperial valley. His engineers, now out of Imperial val ley, were in Yuma recently after sup plies.and. reported there that their survey would end at Parker. Again, it is reported that a line is soon to begin at Phoenix, pass through Buckeye, cross the Hassayampa, skirting the Kagle Tail, Big Horn and Pfomosa mountains. entering and passing through fifty miles of agricultural land between Ehrenberg and Parker. I have heard of the San Diego Rail road coming to Phoenix for the past twenty years, and have now arrived at the conclusion that the reason why it has not made the effort, was because it did not know how or where it was to cross the Colorado river. To the ordinary thinker, the crossing of this murky old creek might be thought easy enoujh. but those who have made it a study, know different. It ts very probable that the only practical rail road crossing between Yuma and Naedles is the one at Parker. I sur mise this from a limited acquaintance with the meanderings of this river, and am further warranted in my opinion in believing that the best engineers in the United States have built for per manency a bridge here that will han dle for the next one hundred years all the traffic that can be brought to bear upon it. I never tire of telling of the future of this place. A valley capable of maintaining 50,000, probably 100,000, souls: its surrounding mountains. In mining, providing for as many more; the river, supplying enormous horse power; the railroad, which at Parker crosses on a bridge which defies the elements, and has the longest low per cent grade to be found on the conti nent; which, in truth, means that the bulk of the traffic and freight, both east and west, .to and from California, will, in the future, cross the Colorado at Parker. Thus Parkerites need have no fear as to the ultimate results. What will be, will be; and what some of our peo ple now know, all will know in a short time the correctness of the pith of the above statements. Let no food impair the powers of the stomach. Eat , .
