WEEKLY JOURNAL-MINER, WEDNESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 25, 1911 WYNKO OP RANCH TO 1 SE VOIR S RIALISTSIARRE Preliminary Operations on Larges Irrigation Enterprise Ever Started In Northern Arizona Under Way ITE DEFEATED IN BATTLE OF Yesterday afternoon the Arizona Iand and irrigation company, through its resident general manager Geo. A. Thayer, formally took over the 900 acre ranch owned by D. M. Wynkoop, in Willow Creek valley, making the final payment of $20,000. This trans action was authorized by ex-Congressman James E. Watson, president of the company, residing at Indianapolis, Ind., who wired a few days ago, to close the deal as soon as possible and to begin preliminary work on con struction of the large impounding reservoir, -which lies within the limits of the tract. Under the terms of the sale Mr. Wynkoop has sixty days to vacate the premises, and reserves the improvements, buildings and the crops of the season. The sale was practi cally closed early in the week, but the absence of Mrs. Wynkoop from the city deferred the final payment until her return yesterday from Kirk land valley. In speaking of the ac quisition of the valuable nucleus of what is destined to be the greatest land reclamation project ever under taken in central or northern Arizona, Mr. Thayer said that his company will proceed along energetic lines to prepare the site for the "great water storage reservoir with a keen appre ciation of the unquestioned possibili ties of the project. While it is true the protest filed several months ago to the company securing title to 14, O00 acres of land in Lonesome valley, has not as yet been officially con sidered at Washington, the Wynkoop land will for i-everal months be the point where operations will be conducted, and whether a favorable or adverse decision is given, the woik will proceed as outlined. The news of the closing of the big deal ycste.rdsy was favoiably received by all in this citv and Lonesome vallev optimistic over their arid land inter ests being placed within the zone of the irrigation svstem. Mr. Thayer stated yesterday that erection of several buildings was al ready under way, near the dam site. to accommodate a limited number o men, and that beginning next Monday lt was his intention to start strip ping the land of all undergrowth and to blast boulders for use in the coffer dams that are to be built. Until the arrival of Chief Engineer F. B. Walk cr from Chicago, who is expected next week, an incidental line of work will be prosecuted such as he outlined during a visit several weeks ago. The 32,000 acres of this company, stretch ing to the north of the dam site for over twentv miles has been surveved and platted and the survey for th canal that will be built to conduct flood waters 'from the diversion dam on Granite creek, within the Fort Whipple Military reservation has been completed. The land acquired by the company, is among the oldest and best known in this section of Arizona. It was owned originally by L. A. Stevens and Fred G. Breclit. Under the plans formulated by the company every foot ot this large acreage will be submerg ed bv the water to be stored, an which in elevation will cover the Willow Creek vallev where the county road passes through at the Wvnkoop home, to a depth of at least forty feet, creating a lake of over one mile in width and extending up the stream for over three miles. The site for the building of the dam is about half mile below the county road at a point where natural conditions are most jdeal for the structure in granite formation. TAFT NOT AFRAID TO OFFEND THE TRUSTS NEWCASTLE, Wyo.. Oct. 20. President Taft again made clear in liis speeches today that it is his in tention to enforce the anti-trust law no matter how much the offending corporations may squeal for mercy. "The Supreme court," he said. "handed down two decisions, one against the Staudird Oil company and the other against the American To bacco company. There are other cor Iorations charged the same as these and some of them are coming in vol untarily to divide themselves up and just as we are aliout to reach a suc cessful administration of the law we find there are some people who ob ject on the ground that it is persecu tion and not prosecution. This is a case where it seems we are damned if we do and damned if we don't but when I lifted up my hand and took the oath to enforce the law I meant it and it is now my business to enforce the law and I am going . to do it. ' The president spent the day in northern Wyoming. lie started at Sheridan in the morning with the . temperature at 2o F. and stopped to , night at Newcastle with no improve I ment in the mercury noted. For hours todav the train sped over the snow- covered country and at times the flakes in the air seemed that a buz zard was imminent. From Sheridan today the president took a three-mile ride to Fort McKenzie. It was cold enough to make buffalo robes com fortable and at the fort the president stopped to get warm.

It is ap parent here tonight that the Imperial government knew of the reverses at Hankow twenty-four hours before the news leaked out. The first positive account of the defeat of the loyalists was convei'ed tonight to the foreign legation by the Associated Press and caused a profound sensation. The success of the revolution, it is con sidered here, hung on the first en counter as its moral effect is admit ted to be far-reaching. hen the fugitive Imperialists reach the main army which is now in the rear of Sin Yang Chow, the knowledge of the repulse, it is be lieved, will utterly demoralize the troops while as the news twels to the Yang tse Kiang district, it is be lieved, the whole province will report important adhesions to the rebel cause. The foreign legations tonight be lieve the news of the repulso means that the whole district south of the Yang tse Kiang and some north of the river will secede sooner or later. Evervthing seems to depend on the immediate success of the minister of war, lin icuaug, who now heads 0,000 men marching on Hankow, but, it is said, onlv the roreign ministry shows any pretensions to enjoy confi dence in his promised attack. lin Tchang has already issued proclama tions offering amnesty to those who desert the rebel standards and it be lieved here he will rely on his pro clamations rather than on an open attack in consequence of his fear that his men will desert him.
