Southern Californians Con
fer With Local Man and
; Examine General Condi
tions in Valley
After having met with Dwight B.
Heard in a series of conferences
concerning: business conditions In
general in trie Salt River valley, and
the probability of a closer commer
cial relationship between Arizona and
Southern California. "William VE.
Clayton. vice-president of the
Spreckels Interests in San Diego, and
. r. (anHHs. vice-president of the San
H flfVo&AriJiona railway and a direc
tor in me Racine jLiecinc ranwny
system of Los Angeles, left last night
for the Pacific coast. Clayton ana
GSllls have been here since 'Wednes
day morning, having come from San
Mero in the private car "Carriso
Gorge." to examine business condi
tions here.
'in conjunction with their survey
of Phoenix and the Salt Klver valley
it is understood that they made a
cursory examination of the street
railway system here, but only as a

part of their general view of condi
tions. Both Clayton ana onus are
well known in the street railway
world, the former because of his con
nection of more than a quarter of a
century with the street railway sys
tem i Pan Diego, and the latter be
cause of his position with the Pacific
Klectric system at Los Angeles.
Tn discussing conditions in Arizona,
particularly with reference to the
future. Gillis. who has been connect
ed for many years with the Southern
Pacific Railroad company, and who
has played a large part in the work
of development which has been car
ried on by that railway system, be
came enthusiastic yesterday over the
possibilities which are concentrated
in the so-called San Juan Basin, situ
ated -where- Arizona, Colorado, Utah
and New Mexico are joined, and over
the benefits which must nrcrue to
Phoenix if the wealth of this section
is developed and opened to the world
by adequate ran connections.
"The San Juan Basin, he said, "is
destined to become one of the most
important industrial centers of the
west, and it is not unthinkable that
Phoenix, through the extension of
the railroads now entering it, may.
make the basin contributory to its
prosperity in a definite manner.
Possibilities in Basin
"The Basin contains, in the first
place. 1.000,000 acres available for
agricultural purposes, and of this
amount more than 400.000 are now
supplied with canals and water. With
the proper conservation of the water
supply, at least 1.500.000 acres in ad
dition may be put under cultivation.
But this is only a Part of the poten
tial wealth of the Basin. It contains
immense deposits of the best grade
of steam coal and cooking coal west
of Pennsylvania, which are sufficient
in quantity to take care of all the re
quirements of the Southwest and the
Pacific, coast. The development of
these deposits and the entrance into
the Basin of a real railroad system
is bound to be of incalculable value
to Arizona, and especially to Phoenix,
if this city is to awake to the oppor
tunity which will soon be upon it.
The Basin at present is tapped only
' by a narrow gauge railway composed

"The development of the San Juan
Basin will depend largely upon the
construction of a railroad from De
fiance. Colo., on the Santa Fe rail
way, to Durango, Colo., but this does
not mean that Phoenix should not
reach out for the wealth that is wait
ing for her and should bestir itself
in getting Into rail connection with
this unfailing supply of prosperity.
"Now, there is also another feature
which should be taken into consid
eration by Phoenix in examining the
possibilities of the San Juan Basin.
In San Bernardino and Riverside
counties. California, there have been
discovered deposits of iron ores
which are as extensive as any others
in the United States. Phoenix lies
between the coal "of the San Juan
Basin on the one hand and the iron
of California, on the other and
where iron and coal can be brought
together, fortune pours out her best
and greatest prizes."
Mr. Clayton concerned himself
more in the discussion with the gen
eral business outlook and indications
of what the future holds in sore for
the southwt.
Future Markets in West
"The completion of the Snn Diego
& Arizona railway," he said, "has
meant, in a greater degree than, per
haps, anything else, the commercial
solidarity of the southwest, and par
ticularly of Arizona and Southern
California. In tapping the great pro- I
duetiveregion of the Imperial Valley, )
the San Diego & Arizona has only
started its work. Alreadr great!
part of the passenger traffic to
Southern California, is going over
this road from Arizona, and with the
passing of every day it is exerting its
influence to a greater degree in the
commercial life of this section of the
United States.
"Tt is undoubtedly true that Ari
zona Is finding more and more an
outlet for her produce on the Pacific
coast. More than this, the Far East
Is calling for her cotton and her cop
per, and it will be a matter of only
a short time when this state will look
to the Pacific and the lands beyond
the Pacific for her markets instead
of to the eastern states and Kurope.
'In developing these markets, Ari
zona will have to deal through
Southern California, not onlv because
of its proximity, but because of the
rail and water facilities which are
being built up in better shape each
year. Arizona is already linked to
San Diego by one of the finest rail
way systems in the United States,
and the course of travel and ship
ping is steadily southward."
Talking of business conditions in
general on the Pacific coast, and es
pecially In the south. Mr. Clavton
said :
Business Fair on Coast
"Business is fair in Southern Cal
ifornia, with a general average bet
ter, I think, than the rest of the
country. . Southern California is
never hit with extremes of either
good or bad times. During the boon
days of the war and Immediately
after. Southern California did not see

nor aia it see tne relaxation of ef

Mr. Clayton, who find. It fin tn
keep any mention of street cars or
street railways out of his conversa
tion, said that he . and fJillis bad
looked over the system in Phoenix,
but without any idea of interfering
in its affairs. He spoke in a general
way of the needs of the system, par
ticularly with reference to the co
operation which may be given a
street railway system by the public
and by the governing powers, and,
declared that In demanding better
service, extensions and improved
equipment, the consumer of trans
portation must realize that he must
pay the bills, and that the conduct
of a street railway must therefore be '
considered by the operating company
dua me puouc strictly as -a, business j
matter. In which the question of a
just and fair profit to the company
must not be lost sight of.
Mr. Clayton and Mr. Gillis left last
evening for San Diego. It is prob
able that their investigations here
will be resumed some time in the

unable to give a definite time.

"The rapid exhaustion of our na
