HE WOULD FORGET FORTUNES.
Immense Sums Slipped Stan
The Property Will Amount to Fif
ty to Sixty Millions.
At One Tim* Ho Paid three Per Cent a
Month on Three Million Dollars—
A Drawer Fall or Uucished
San Franciaco Examiner: Senator
Stanford didn't know how much he was
worth. No one now knows to a certainty
the real or approximate value oi hia es
tate, and when the three appraisers,
Messrs. Hammond, Trumbo and Brown,
ate through with their mouths of work
they will merely have guessed at the
Bat bb between those who hold that
$20,000,000 will cover the marketable
value of the property loft by the dead
senator and those who say $05,000,000
the supporters of tbe big figures are
more nearly correct. Frank Shay, now
one of the Southern Pacific attorneys,
was for many years the senator's private
secretary, and sustained euch close rela
tions to him that ha probably knows
better than any one else the value of the
great estate. Yesterday Mr. Shaw
talked freely of the senator's methods
in money matters aud gave a flat-footed
opinion as to what thelortuuo will foot
ENOUGH AND TO SPARE.
"Senator Stanford died worth between
$50,000,000 am $30,000,000, aud I
shouldn't be at all surprised to find the
total running over $60,000,000," he said,
with the intonation of a man perfectly
certain of his position. "Fifty-rive mil
lions would be a conservative estimate."
"How will its value compare with
tbat ot tbe estate of Obarlea Crocker?"
"I should say approximately the
"What was the appraised value of the
"That appraisement was peculiar. It
was appraised at about $30,000,000. Of
this Mrs. Crocker received one-half. She
died not long afterward and her half was
then appraised at about $30,000,000. So
you see there could be little reliance
placed on the first appraisement. For
instance, tbe first appraisement of South
ern Pacific stock was at $5 a share,
which, of coarse, was ludicrously low.
Again tbe Crocker half interest in tbe
Bay district track property was ap
praised at $155,000, !>ir=-r; 1,250,000 had
been refused for X'xa property just before
that. But taken for all in all I should
say the market value of the Stanford es
tate would not vary much from that of
tbe Crocker estate.
"Of course Governor Stanford owned
comparatively iittle city property. He be
lieved in country real estate and invested
on that belief. On the other hand
Charlee Crocker bought a great deal of
city property and comparatively little
country land. Both were generous and
lavish in their expenditures, but both
were close and careful buyers, and their
investments were sound once. So,
speaking broadly, the two estates should
foot np about the same.
TWO TRUSTING MILLIONAIRES.
•'The two msn hud abaoluie confi
dence in each other, and many of their
transactions were thoroughly illustrative
of this. Whenever the governor was
away and money had to be paid to fill
his transactiona Crocker always paid it.
When Crocker wss atvay Stanford paid.
These transactions would amount to
enormous sums, hut once the mattera
were settled both men would forget all
about them. Perhaps the accounts
would run on for years. Tuen the eye
of oue or the other would fall upon a
•balaucs sheet or something would bring
tbe matter up. Crocker, for instance,
would see: 'Due from Stanford, $350,
--000.' 'What's all tbat about?' he'd ask
in surprise, and being told he'd go to
tbe governor's office and get a check for
the amount. Just aa often the balance
would be tbe other way, and both men
would have forgotten all about the debt.
"Tbere was an amusing instance of
this in tbe purchase of tbe Bay District
track property. The old racing associa
tion held a leasehold interest in tbe
property, and the governor went on its
aotea for $40,000. It went to pieces, and
though it had as members such men aa
Flood, Mackay, Fair, Haggin, Tevis and
the big stock brokers of those days, they
let the governor in ior the entire
amount of the notes. He found that in
order to proteot himself he would have
lo buy the property. The transaction
amounted to $140,000.
"When the time came to pay this
money tbe governor was away, so
Crocker, after his usual custom, paid it.
Stanford didn't really want the prop
erty, and when he came back he hap
pened to say to Crocker one day:
'"Charlie, why don't you take a half
interest in tbat race track investment?'
" 'All right,' said Crocker, 'I'll do it.'
"Years went by. Both had forgotten
-the transaction. I don't believe they
really knew the property belonged to
them, except as the fact might have
been called to their attention from time
to time. Then one day in came an offir
from Borel of $800,000 for the property.
This made them think.
•"By the way, Charlie, I don't think
you ever paid me for your half of that
tract.' said the governor. 'I guess you
owe me $70,000 on that.'
" 'Hanged if I know,' replied Crocker,
'Perhaps I do. I'll look it up and give
you a check.'
"Crocker went out and came back
after a few minutes, smiling all over bis
"'No, you don't, governor,'he said,
as he shook with tbe joke within him.
'You can't play any ot your games on
me. I paid for that property myself.'
" 'Is tbat so ?' asked Stanford. 'Then
I owe you $70,000.' With that he wrote
out a check for the amount. This shows
you how they trusted each other, aud
how with their great wealth they were
ab'.e to forget sums which would make
ordinary people rich. Why, one day
while the governor was gone it was
necessary to pay out over $SOO,OOO on
his account. Crocker rustled around a
little while and paid it. I don't Euppoee
either man could have told anything
about the transaction a month from that
time unless something brought it defin
itely to his attention.
A BONFIRE OF "PHANTOM NOTHB."
"In 1885 we had a big bonfire down in
tbe governor's office. We were mckin,g
a sort of clean-up at the time, getting
rd of eld checks and wuituleea papers.
You would have found your eyes stick
ing out if you had seen what went mt i
"Talk about these 'phantom notes.'as
them, why hundreds upon hun
dreds of thousands of dollars were rep
resented in each notes burned that day.
They ran from $100 to $25,000 each. I
tell you, everybody had had a slice. . No
one knows the politicians, newspaper
men and all sorts, kinds and conditions
of people whose names were lepresented
on those notes. The governor burned
nearly all of them. This fact will console
some eminent citizens and rousing anti
monopolists who may have been expect
ing their notes io appear in the invento
ry of the governor's estate. Only a few
were kept. These were generally those
from politicians, and the governor
thought they might be useful as remind
"So all tho notes now outstanding
are those whicb have accumulated
within the last eitrht years. There
haven't been co many during that time
as in a similar space of time formerly.
Hut all the notea now unpaid are not set

of tbe notes on the inventory are worth
less, but others represent ordinary busi
A FORGOTTEN FORTUNE.
"In making that clean-up we came
I acroßß a fortune which the governor
knew nothing about. In his desk waa a
I central drawer like tbat in my bußinesß
deak. This waa nearly full of unoaabed
checka, paid to the governor as divi
dends from the projects in which he wae
interested. They were for large amounte
in many instances, and their total aggre
gated hundreda of thousands of dollars.
Many of them ran back for years.
"The governor had entirely forgotten
them. It was his habit when receiving
such checks to open thia drawer, put in
tbe checks, cloae tbe drawer, lock it,
and like as not leave tbe key in tbe
drawer. So tbe checks accumulated
from year to year, until their total
reached a figure representing a fortune
for any man.
"To give you an idea of the accumula
tions in this drawer, we found a letter
containing a check for $187 sent to the
governor in 1800—16 veers before. It
was from a man in Virginia City, and
the letter requested the governor io buy
him a ticket for the east, the fare being
$138 iv those daye.
" 'That explains it!' exclaimed tho
governor. 'I've bad letters from that
cha ) asking about that money, hut I
didn't know where it was. Can you get
trace of him?'
"We tried to find the man, but never
were able to, nnd I supuoee he still
thinks tbe governor stole hie money.
"But with all this, Staniord waa a
good business man for big things. Ho
didn't know how much he was worth.
O'ten he asked me to teli him, but I
couldn't do it. Nobody could. Still,
ho always knew just about where he
stood and kept bis affairs in such a con
dition that money was 'easy' with him.
Of course he knew just what bonds he
had—and they repreeented an enormous
sum—because it was necessary to cut the
interest coupous. But he couldn't tell
just what his manifold lauded interests
were worth, and as for tbe great holdings
in companies directly connected with the
railroad, their values are practically im
possible to establish.
THE LOST TEN MILLIONS.
"Why, after the Crocker estate was
appraised it was necessary to make a
supplemental appraisement because
something like $10,000,000 of property
was found which the boys knew nothing
about. It iB probably the same with the
Stanford estate, just as tbe clause in tbe
published inventory states—thero are
securities which Mrs. Stanford does not
yet know about.
"As for the inventory published by
the Examiner, it certainly ie incom
plete. It looked to me at first as if you
bad got hold of a few pages of it and
missed the rent, though I now know
that you had all the inventory that had
been prepared. Thia inventory doesn't
chow any Southern Pacific bonds, for in
stance, yet Governor Stanford held a
very large line of all the issues. Theee
bonds have been here all the time and
are here now. There are other proper
ties also which were not enumerated,
but I suppose they will be subsequently
"What was the largest check you ever
knew Governor Stanford tn draw?"
"I once carried to tho bank for him a
check for $1,250,000. This was to the
French bank, and it was in payment of
a loan from that institution. The date
was in the 70s. In tbe early days of
the railroad the projectors could get
money from the French bank when they
couldn't get it anywhere else. But they
had to pay enormous rates of interest.
Even in my day thero was a loan of
$500,000 on which the governor was
paying 3 per cent a month. Then it
was reduced to 2 per cent and then to I.
THREE PER CENT A MONTH.
"The governor told me that at one
time he owed the French bauk $3,000,
--000, on which he paid 3 per cent a month
intersex 'Ski* tibs for money spent in
the construction of the road. They had
to have money, no matter what interest
they had to pay. Any ono would be
glad to get the interest on $3,000,000 at
.'! per cent a month for a year or two, let
alone the principal. Thirty-six per
cent a year nieaus $1,080,000 a year.
But of couree all this was changed
once the road wan well on ita feet.
"What was the largest amount I
knew of his paying for real estate?
Well, I don't exactly remember. 1
think he paid half a million ior the
Gridley rancb, but I'm not altogether
sure of the figurea. Us was full of big
transactions, and sometimes he'd worry
the treasurer of the company. It was
hia custom to let his dividends lie and
have them charged up to hia credit.
Then some day the Bank of California
would send down a notice, 'Your ac
count ia overdrawn $350,000'—0r come
such big euro. The governor would
Bend for Hopkins and say: 'Have you
got any money for me? I'm overdrawn
at the hank, and muat pay up before 3
" 'How much do you want?' Hopkins
" 'Oh, $400,000' the governor would
"Hopkins wonld look worried, but
he'd get the money iv short order.
Then I'd take the check to the bauk
and square things.
SOMETHING LIKE TWELVJt MILLIONS.
It is known that Senator Stanford at
the time of hiß death held interest in
many largo bodies of land that were not

[Fhcenlx Qarettc, Aug. 1, 1893.]
The vastness of this country, within
whose confines exist conditions ol cli
mate and soil varying from frigid to
torrid, from one extreme of aridity to
tbe other of excessive humidity, from
prodigal fertility to sterile niggardliness,
ia very vaguely impressed upon the
people of the United States.
Men become so accustomed to the
conditions under whioh they immediat
ely live that by habit and association
they come to resard these conditions as
the only ones adapted to human happi
ness, and that a variation from them
must bo a fault to be deplored.
More than 00 per cent of the popula
tion of the United States are ao accus
tomed to the cultivation of the soil
under climatic conditions making an
artificial application of the moisture re
quisite for the growth and maturity of
their crops unnecessary, tbat irrigation
is to them an unknown art.
To tbem tbe euguestion of artificial
irrigation carries with it tbe idea of
limited area, deficient product, barren
ness, and generally, results wholly in
adequate and unprofitable in proportion
to tbe cost and labor incident to tbat
Tbeir idea of the profitable cultivation
of the soil is, unconsciusly perhaps, but
inseparably, connected with a humid at
mosphere, frequent and copious rains,
an alternation almost daily of sunshine
and clouds, and tbe succession of spring,
summer, autumn and winter.
It may be a generally known fact that
three-fourths of the inhabitants of the
globe obtain their food supply from lands
artificially irrigated, yet these conditions
are so remote to most of tbe people of
tbe United States tbat the knowledge of
of that fact fails to make an adequate
impression of the importance of the
Aridity of climate, high temperature,
long rainless periods and almost perpet
ual sunshine are to them symbolic of
tbe desert, of poverty of soil and physi
cal discomfort. So prevalent is thiß
opinion in the United States, and so
firmly set that it requires iteration and
reiteration to impress upon them that
for the best development of certain
products, aridity, heat and perpetual
sunshine are absolutely essential.
To take from Southern Arizona that
characteristic would blast ber fondest
hopes that ahe will ere long supply the
United States with those products.
Tbe fig, the olive, the pumgranate
and most particularly the vino, beat
thrive under such conditions.
Pinal county has a soil unsurpassed
for fertility and ita adaptation to these
With artificial irrigation these prod
ucts exceed in value those of any lands
in the United States. The cost of water
eupply and distribution is many times
repaid by the excess of prodnct of such
lands over that of landa not irrigated.
The question ia not one ao much of coat
of supply as of ita reliability.
Tbere are in the Casa Grande valley
more than a million acres of extremely
fertile land ; to bring tbem under culti
vation a water supply is necessary.
The Gila (pronounced Heel-a) river is
the principal source of water supply in
the county. That river rises in New
Mexico and pursues a generally western
course to its confluence with the Col
orado river at Yuma, a distance of more
than 400 miles. Its principal tributaries
are the San Francisco, Black, San Carlos
and Salt rivera from the north, and tbe
San Pedro from the south.
The river, as are all rivers in the
southwest, ia Bubject to great variationa
of volume, ranging from flood to a com
paratively small flow. During tbe win
ter montba of December, January and
February it carries an immense volume
of water. From that time it suffers a
continuous diminution, until again it
is replenished by tbe rain in tbe moun
tains in June and July. The San Pedro
river, a tributary of the Gila, traverses
the eastern portion of the county. The
San Pedro has its source in Sonora,
Mexico, and receives the summer rains
of a large area of that state.
The principal irrigation in the county
is that of the Florence Canal company,
whidh was organized in 1880. Its capi
tal stock has been increased from time
to time to meet the expenditure neces
sary to the accomplishment of ita pur
poses. It has expended $300,000 so far
in construction work.
It haß now constructed and in opera
tion about 50 luiiee oi uuaiu canai, by
which it diverts water from the Gila
river. The head of the canal, tho point
of diversion from the river, is about 10
miles northeast of Florence, and tbe
canal extends thence to a point about
two miles south of Oaea Grande station.
For the first 25 or 30 miles of ita
coorse, that ia from tbe river to tho
reservoir, tbe canal is 25 feet wide at
the bottom, 4'.j feet deep, with banks
sloping two horizontally to one vertically,
making a width at the surface water
line of 43 feet. The grade of the canal
is two leet to the mile, and ita carrying
capacity is 20,000 miners' inones, or ex
pressed otherwise, 500 cubic feet of
water flowing per second of time. Upon
a conservative estimate this supply of
water is sufficient for the irrigation of
75,000 acres of land.
Tbe company has constructed as a part
of ita works a reservoir on the line of
Its canal, about 15 miles Bouthwest of
Florence. In tbe construction of the
reeervoir the company availed itself of a
natural depression in the plain, im
pounding the water by means of an earth
The embankment is something over
14,000 feet in length, is 20 feet wide on
top, 27 feet high at the highest point,
and 127 feet thick at the bottom at the
point where it is highest.
The reservoir embraces an area of
1800 acres of land, and when filled to its

From tbe reservoir water is aupplied
to the lands lying along the South
ern Pacific railroad by a canal 20 feet in
width at the bottom, with hanks sloping
two feet to one.
The reservoir has been in use two
yeara, and ita success has been demon
strated. It affords now an absolute and
certain water supply for 20,000 acres of
land, and to that extent increasing tbe
supply of water afforded by the average
flow of the river. The extent of land
that may be supplied will increase as
tbe lands become saturated by continu
The company has now in progress a
scheme of reorganization to increase its
capital and enlarge its works. The pre
liminary surveys, maps, filings and lo
cations required by the recent act of
oongrecs have been made by it to ac
quire the right to construct an impound
ing dam in the Gila river, at the point
locally known as the Buttes.
At this point the course of the river is
for 1000 or 1200 feet through a narrow
csfion with almost perpendicular walls
of solid rack, across which the company
proposes to construct its dam. Above
this point the valley broadens and af
fords immense storage capacity. The
river has an average iall of seven feet per
mile above this point, so that each
seven feet of height of dam will set
back the water a mile. The height of
the proposed dam will be about 200 feet.
With the completion of this dam tbe
Bupply of water for an immensely in
creased body of land will be assured.
Prior to the construction of the Flor
ence canal such of the landa in tbe val
ley tbat were in cultivation obtained
witter by means of numerous email
ditchea which were generally wasteful of
water, expensive in construction and
maintainance, and were unreliable, being
subject to injury by slight rises of water
in tbe river. Most of those who form
erly thus obtained their supply now get
it from the Florence canal.
Surveys are now in progress by a com
pany that contemplates the construction
of a reservoir on the river and tbe diver
sion of water by canala, one on each side
of the river. This enterprise is mainly
backed by Bowen and Ferry, the Detroit
capitalists, and may mean much for
the agricultural development of Pinal
There are on the Gila, above Florence
and below Riverside, three or four
Binail ditches, supplying water for 1200
or 1500 acres of land.
On the San Pedro there are 10 or 11
private ditches, supplying water to
about 3000 acres of land.
The Pima and Maricopa Indians divert
considerable water for the purposs of ir
rigation. Their works for that purpose,
however, are crude, inefficient and very
wasteful of water.
