The Xe.v Eedford (Mass.) Standard
more nc.ivly than any other daily
newspaper in the country, the organ
tf the cotton spinning industry, pub
lished the following on the recent
isit of lighi B. HearC, president
of the Pima-cotton Growers' associa
tion, to Xw Bedford, devoting to the
interview a volume of space that in
dicates the interest felt in that center
in the cotton of the Salt River valley
nd the southwest:
That the growers of Pima cotton In
the south vest propose to lead the way
In the improved ginning, baling and
warehousing movement was indicated
yesterday by Dwisht B. Heard, presi
dent cf the Arizona Pima-cotton
Growers association of Phoenix, Ari
zona, who is here personally in New
Bedford in the interests of marketing
she Pima cotto.t crop. Mr. Heard de
rlnred thit it was proposed to make
the pickin?, the ginning, the baling
nd the inal wrapping of the Pima
bales full- equal to the highest stand
ards prevailing with respect to Kgyp
tian cation.
With regard to the aims and plans
of the f'imi growers and the future
prospects of this type of cotton, Mr
Heard sail:
The Pima-cottjn Growers' Coop
erative association is endeavoring to
render a real and practical service
not only to the cotton producer but to
the manufacturer of cotton goods.
"There ; eems to be a genuine rec
ocnition among the spinners of fine
yarn who need an extra long staple
cotton, that Pima cotton is the only
otton of this type produced in com
mercial quantities in the world today
with which spinners who want cotton
running from l'i to li inches in
staple in uniform lots sold on exact
sample, can be supplied.
"We fe.?l that in order to give the
rotton manufacturer the service he
desires it is more practical to store
our cotton in l&rge lots at the point
of manufacturing use. For that rea
son we have arranged for storage
facilities in New Bedford for several
thousand bales now in transit and ex
pect after the first of the year to
materially iacirase our shipments to
this marit if the demand and price
justifies it.

Cave Creek Board Assures Mining
Company Dam Will Cause No Damage
The Cave creek flood control board
yesterday notified the Amalgamated
Copper Mines company that it was
assembling construction forces for
the purpose of beginning construction
of protection work to safeguard lives
and property of the Salt River valley.
The mining company recently no
tified the board that it would not
permit it to proceed with the build-
mer. I was much impressed at the
good condition in which the Sakel
laridis cotton produced in the delta
of the Nile reached the market, and
we are now arranging through our
Pima-cotton Growers' organization to
put Pima cotton onto the market in
the same line condition as Sakel-
"By adopting the most Improved
methods of glowing, including care
ful seed selection, better ginning
methods, rrompt warehousing and
very careful government inspected
classing, we are practically eliminat
ing all country damage and are set
ting this cotton onto the n..irket in
the fine condition which, its superla
tively fine type demands.
"By maintaining in our district the
production of this one type cf cotton
from selected government seed, we
are avoiding the deterioration in type
which has occurred in some districts
by cross-breeding when several types
of cotton are grown in the same dis
trict. "It is very gratifying to our asso-
citation to note the steadily increasing
use of Pima cotton by the fine spin
ners. Thus far this year we have
shipped from our district about 18,000
bales, the very large percentage of
which has been purchased for the
use of fine spinners. And it has now
been demonstrated that this remark
ably even-running long stapled Pima
cotton can be spun with thorough
success in the yarn running as high
as 130 fount. Another encouraging
fact is that many fine spinners who
have been previously using this cot
ton in small lots have, during the past
60 days, been re-ordering in greatly
increase'd Quantity. So that it is now
demonstrated that, without regard to
the demmd from the manufacturers
of tire fabrics, there is developing in
America a genuine demand for this
cotton among the fine spinners.
"It should be emphasized that Our
organization is a strictly business or
ganization formed for the purpose of
orderly marketing and holding a five
year contract with the growers for
their product. Our membeship is
steadily cowicg, we have now nearly
a thousand growers in our organiza
tion and next year expect to handle
the very large proportion of Pima
cotton grown in the southwest. By
applying to our manager. P. M. James,
fullest information will be supplied
to anyone interested.

any original methods of selling in the
New England market ana are nana

ing of the dam and that any attempt i
to construct a portion on its prop- ,
erty would be vigorously resisted, on
the ground that it would damage its
property. j
A committee of mining experts
after an investigation reported to
the board that there will be no dam
age to existing or possible mining
values of the company and the board
is willing to rely on this judgment.
It has furthermore offered to put up
any reasonable bond for the protec
tion of the company.
This is set forth in a communica
tion signed by the control board
members yesterday as follows:
December 24, 1921..'
Mr. J. E. Morrison, Attorney.
Amalgamated Copper Mines Co,
Heard Bldg..
Phoenix. Arizona.
Dear Sir:
We are individually In receipt of
your several communications in re
gard to the refusal of the company,
which you represent, to permit the
Cave Creek flood control board to
proceed w-ith the construction of the
Cave creek dam.
This board, in the construction of
the necessary protection work to
safeguard the lives and property of
the citizens of the Salt River valley,
does not desire to impose, wjthout
compensation, any damages on your
company. Neither does this board
desire to pay public monies to any
one without value received, or in re
turn for actual damages sustained.
In order to supplement our own
opinion, we secured the services of
a committee of mining experts, con
sisting of the dean of the college of
mining and engineering of the Uni
versity of Arizona, the editor of the
Arizona Mining Journal. C. V. Willis,
and K. E. Whiteley, chief geologist of
the C. and A. Copper 'company.
These men have made a report to us
that the construction of the Cave
creek dam will not damage any ex
isting or possible mining values of
your company.
On this account, we are advising
the contractor to proceed- in assem
bling his construction forces for the
purpose 'of immediately beginning
construction, and in addition, have
advised our attorney, P. II. Hayes, to
take whatever legal steps are neces
sary to secure possession of the nec
essary ground on which to begin con
struction. If the opinion of your company is
different from that of. ourselves and
the mining experts, we are qnite will
ing to put up any reasonable bond
for your protection, should a court
of law decide that you will sustain
damages in the construction of this
dam. We, however, are unwilling to
permit, if it is at all possible to avoid
it, the delay in the construction of
this dam, as it will require the im
mediate commencement of this work
in order to have it completed before
the summer rains of 1922..
We will welcome from you any
suggestion as to how we can co-operate
with you to avoid delay on this
