Wednesday the opening day of the fair was well at tended, but many people from the valley, and other points, did not come here on account of the weather, which was inclined to be threatening during the earlv part of the week, and turned into a storm Tuesday morning, cleared for the day, and stormed again Tues day night.

Crouse, at one time Indian Agent at the Pima Indian Reserva tion, mentioned in his report to Washington the building of a stor age reservoir to furnish water for the Pima Indians, according to cor respondence on exhibit at the county fair. The exhibit reads as follows: House of Representatives, Wash ington, D. C.—The Committee on Indian Affairs on the request of Senator Hayden reported as fol lows: “C. W. Crouse was the first In dian agent to suggest a reservoir on ihe Gila river as a means of provid ing the Pimas with their proper share of water, in his report for 11890 Mr. Crouse said: “There is not an acre of the four reservations of this agency ihat any kind of cereal | grows without irrigation The soil |is rich, but nothing grows on it naturally except mesquiie, cotton wood, paloverde, a variety of cac , tus and stunted shrubbery. Water iis king. It is water and cultivation that is rapidly transforming these ! valleys into fields of grain, fruit ! and vegetables. A storage dam for i these Indians or a bountiful and per manent interest in a reservoir and canal would certainly be not only a humane act but an economical out lay of funds, for without it these | people will soon cease to be self supporting.” , 0 COMING UP Some of this paper’s democratic friends have asked when the re publicans are going to hold their election.
