V-URING the past few I years, with modern pre sumption, we have been "discovering" the wonders of the Qolorado river; however, some of our historical friends have exhumed evidences of many ancient journeys in this region, a few references to -which are given below. In 1539 Uloa sailed to the head of the Gulf of California and, nntinn- the turbid condition of the water, inferred that a gre river entered the gulf near its head. He, however, did not see the river, but indicated its sup posed position on a sketch map made by him at the time. The actual discovery of the Colorado river took place in 1540, three explorers, one by sea and two by lnnd. bavins reached it in that year. Alarcon, the first to ar riye, sailing up the Gulf of Cali fornia to its head, entered the Colorado river and ascended it in boats for fifteen' days to a point possibly beyona me laiia. Cardenas, a lieutenant of Col orado's, traveling through what is now Northern Arizona, ac cording to the historian of the expedition, "arrived at a river the banks of which were so high that they seemed to be three or four leagues in the air.." This is the first written description of the Grand Canon of the Colo rado. In 1776 Father Garces explored the Colorado from the-mouth of the Gila to the present site of Ft. Mojave. This journey was the second through this region, and the first of which we have a detailed account. Extensive in formation is given therein re garding the geography of -the country passed through. This journey was made on foot and largely alone through an un known desert which was occu pied by savages, the sole motive hpinsr religious zeal. In 1780 O - Father Garces established the mission La Purisima Concepcion opposite the mouth of the Gila, on the site where seventy years afterward Ft. Yuma was estab lished. In the same year he also founded the mssion of San Pablo y San Pedro on the right bank of the river, and a few miles be low the mouth of the Gila. Both ; of these missions were destroyed bv Indians in 1781, and about fifty Spaniards were killed, in cluding Father Garces and three other priests. This was the only attempt to establish missions on the Colorado. Other devotees toilowea m these footsteps, crossing and re- . crossinsr the burning: sands of the desert between Santa Fe ' and Yuma. As earlv as 1825 American trappers appeared along the Col orado river. On his overland .iournev to California in 182G -JedediahS. Smith followed the! Colorado from the mouth of the Virgin river to near the present crossing of the Santa Fe railroad and from thence proceeded to the Coast. He was the first American to reach California by the overland route. From 1846 to the beginning of tlie Civil war the lower Colorado was visited by surveying and ex ploring parties under the direc- A.r-. .c TIT -1 , LlOIl Ul llitJ Will uepctl LUJtJUU. The most detailed examination of the river made during this pe riod was by Lieut. J. C. Ives, in 1857-58.

Last December a party -of four connected with the Hydrographic Branch of the United States Ge ological Survey, purchasing a boat at the Needles (where, by the way, they know how to make them well and cheaply), started down to Yuma, distant 291 miles from which point one may re turn home by rail. During the winter months the climatic con ditions are perfect for camping and the trip is absolutely with out danger. As the river is swift and going your way, trav-: plino- is pji.sv. Thinsrs may be helped along nicely with "a sail, as the prevailing wind is down stream in winter. The views m dicate some of the scenes en route. It is a unique trip m a boat through a great and inter esting desert. Any one who has the price can. sneer at tlie desert through a car window: but to travel through it and live with it requires some energy ana originality, and to get on speak ing terms with it once, usually results in an enduring friend ship. The purpose of the recon- nnissance was to determine whether opportunities offered for vitalizing this desert by the diversion of the river. The Colorado River, draining 225,'049 square miles, and receiv ing its principal water supply fvnm Colorado and the high mountains of Utah and Wyo ming, from the melting snows, attains its maximum annual flood state of about 50,000 second-feet (2,500,000 miner's inches) during the month of June. The river gradually decreases in volume through the late summer and fall, reaching its lowest stage of about 4,000 second-feet (200,000 miner's inches) in widwinter, during freezing in the high mountains. This water supply is particu larly adapted to the demands of irrigation, as the period of great est flow is coincident with that of largest demand, and con versely the low stage of the river is during the season when plant life is least vigorous and the requirements of irrigation not so great. The river can furnish an abundant supply of water to irrigate fully 3,000,000 acres or more of land, which is probably a greater area than can ever be commanded in the United States by canals from this stream. Between the Needles and Yuma there are fully 500,000 acres of good and fertile bottom lands When we think of the flag furl ing advocated by the democrats, and the arguments against the etention of territory acquired in Gandolfo Building, and known . also all our interest m and ana consecrarea wim American oiuuu, fixturos and utensils we are consoled with the assur Charley Kee all our interest an undivided one-halt interest m and to that certain business m the Village of Yuma in the Coun ty of Yuma and Territory of Arizona, and carried on m the and all are invited to attend The Brigade left San Francisco some three months ago and have been holding revival meetings in several towns in California, having good success in every place.
