HOUSE MEMORIAL No. 4.
To ths Senate and house of Representa tives of the United States in Con Qraas Assembled: We, your Memorialists, the Nine teenth Legislative Assembly of the Territory of Arizona, respectfully rep resent that the National Irrigation Congress, held In Fluenix, Arizona, od the 15th of December, A. D. 180o, unanimously adopted the following: Whereas, The Pima and Maricopa Indians tribes numbering in the usrprcgate teu thousand sou's, have been deprived of the waters used by them in irrigation before the advent of the whiterace in America, through the appropriation of such waters by settlers on the headwaters of theGiia river; and Whereas. Through tho loss of such wnters the landsoucc cultivated by those tribes have become barren and worthless, and the mem bers of such tribes have become a charge ou the Government, and forced by the loss of their fields into lives of degradation and penury; and Whereas, Such tribes have from the ear liest days been the friends and allies of the white race; and Whereas, The people of the United States have pledged themselves by solemn treaty to protect such tribes In their proi-erty and property rights; and Whereas, The Government of the United States has and now is engaged in theexpendi ture of hundreds of thousands of dollars for the construction of works of irrigation for the reclamation of lands belonging to other Indian tribes ; therefore, be it Resolved, That this Congress do approve the proposed construction, under the plans of the U. S. Geological Survey, of the But tea reservoir, lu Pinal eounty, Arizona, recently reported, to again reclaim the lands of these tribes, believing that by so doing can the Government alone honorably redeem the broken pledges made by it to these people, and thus preserve from further want and degradation two of the surviving Indian tribes of the American continent that have always been the constant friends of the white race. Resolved, That we approve the proposed construction of such reservoir not only as Just and philanthropic, but as economical and good policy, as in a comparatively short time the expense of maintaining such In dians as Government charges wUl far exceed the cost of the irrigation works required to make them a self-supporting and self-respecting community. .Now, therefore, your Memorialists, the Nineteenth Legislative Assembly of th Territory of Arizona, desire to go on record as earnestly endorsing the above recommendations of the Sixth National Irrigation Congress for the following reasons: . I. The reservoir site referred to having been withdrawn from entry by Government authorities, cannot now be utilized by any private corporation, and the Government therefore occupies the indefensible position of doing noth ing itself or allowing any one else to improve this great natural reservoir site. 2. Vi'e firmly believe that the inter ests of humanity dictate that the In dians should be gathered on the reser vations, have lands allotted to them in severalty, and that they be furnished with farming implements and an inex haustible supply of water for irriga tion of " their lands, to the end that they may become self supporting. By this means will a home life be furnished for the Indian and he will more rapidly advance in civilization as a consequence. He will abandon bis nomadic life; his children will be kept at home and educated in neighborhood schools, instead of beinjr sent to large Indian schools at a dis tance where they are kept (as it would Beem) for mere pursoses of show. After being instructed in the arts of civilization for a time they are returned to savagery, to become more unhappy and discontented than if they had never received the questionable advan tages. We feel that the present policy of the Indian department is all wring in this regard. 3. The Pima and Maricopa Indian reservation contains 350,000 acres of as fertile laud as lies within the bound aries of Arizona, and is admirably adapted for homes for these people, as well as the wandering Papagoes, who are now compelled to prey upon the herds of our farmers and ranchmen for subsistence. 4. The construction of a storage res ervoir at the Bnttes by the Govern ment offers a plain business proposi tion for the correction of these evils. Resolved, That the Secretary of the Territory be instrae; ed to transmit a copy of the foregoing Memorial to our Delegate and Delegate-elect in Con gress, and also a copy each to the Presi dent of the Senate 8nd Speaker of the House of Eepresentatives. THE CASA GRANDE VALLEY. Information for Those Seeking Homes In the'Garden Spot of the West. Pinal county was organized in 1875 from portions of Pima, Maricopa and Yavapai counties, and contains an area of 5.368 square miles, or 3,435.520 acres, one-third of which could be made productive by a systematic storage of the surplus water now running to waste. Next to Maricopa it is the most im- fortant agricultural oounty iu the Territory, t it traversed from east to west by the Southern Pacific railroad, and a branch of the great Santa Fe system U now approach ing from the north. The objective point of this road is a connection witli the Sotiora road, of the same system. The Southern Pacific is also building in this direction from Tempe.aml it is confidently believed that work will not cease until the Deer Creek ooal fields are reached and connection is made with another branch of that road run ning from Howie to Globe and now complet ed to Fort Thomas. Thus it will be seen that Pinal county is the theater of railroad building at the pres ent t ime, and inside of a year Florence, the county seat, will be A baxlboad centeb. At present it rontnins a population "of about 1500. but with the completion of these two railroads and the Huttc reservoir no City in Arizona can approach it for natural ndi'entnirPR. nnd a lurere iiicrenao in popula tion will toHo'. t'lorenee is nt tin elevation of ili.iit feet nbuve y;a level, situatrd juuir tho Gila riv..:'. t:ve::Ty-"i x uiil-s tioi't Invest of the raUn.;i STulion of Caa G.'iimi", with wliii-li it is eo!iii-:ct'.i by nzi eloyiiitiy e--;t:iii,eil d i!y :tA iit'.o. tilling ;w coining tturea ma" by the old t'awa Grmnie mim, and passentrerK ar;' ailowe-1 a f-hort t;ue tj in apt -el I iieti.

Unlike the Salt river, the waters' of the Villa are fro?h and pure; the soil contains no ilknli, is a deep, rich gray ah, especially adapted to the growth of the prune, olive, almond, pea- h, ii;r, pear, apricot and fruits of all kinds, which pay largely on the invest incut. It is also the natural home of alfalfa, hk h trrows lu the most prolific manner. ' The crane does exceptionally well in this vaiicy, and wine and raUiu culture ts destin ed to become a prominent industry. Citrus fruits have been cultivated to a limited extent; there are a number of orange trees in the neighborhood of Florence which bear tlieir yiiicn fruit each year without pro tection, and a few date paim trees are also in full bearing. The reason is from six weeks to two mouths earliertiian Southern Califor nia, which gives fruit growers an appreciat ed advantage in TUB EAKLT MAKRET3. The absence of fogs and nightly dews Is a formidable obtacle to the destructive and unsightly scale-bug. and the fruit of the valley are all bright anil clean. All the agri cultural products of temperate and semi tropic tones are easily grown here, the long seasons givinff a succession of crops that double or treble the productive value of the land. FBICBS OV LAUD. Improved lands, with government title and water ritfht, cau be bought for from 20 to per acre, according to location and im provements. In the immediate neighbor hood and to the south of the Caa Grande ruins there are thousands of acres covered with a heavy irrowth of mesuite timber yet oien to settlement. Thcso are among the choicest in the valley. W ater in inexhausti ble quantity is found at a depth of from twenty to thirty feet; in fact, u river seems to be flowing underneath. Here is a splen did opKrtanity to take up and improve land with a pumping system of irrigation, which is said to be successful on small tracts. However, with the completion of the Butte reservoir, pumping will be a thing of the past, and it is only mentioned here for the purpose of showing m itat can be done, and to magnify the further tact that what was once considered I AM USINHABITABL1 DESBBI is in truth the most productive land on the globe, and that there is water in abundance to bring every foot of it under cultivation, only waiting for the mogio wand of capital to develop it. There is no water-storage scheme ou the Pacific coast that has one-half the natural advantages and so few engineer ing dimculties as the Butte reservoir. Mere nature has built the abutments in ever-living rock, and all that is left for man to do is to put in the headgate, the bluffs which form the gorge being only separated by a paltry 220 feet. A country is drained through this narrow canyon 'iUO mites square, representing 40,(ai square miies. or larger than Maine and ilasjtachusettsoombiued. 'i'he rainfall is suf licieut to till the reservoir twice a year, and the land to be brought under cultivation is practically limitless. This may read like a fairy tale, but it is every word true, and has been verified time and again. CABA G BANDS BESS3T0IB. The reservoir of tbo Casa Grande Valley Canal company is the largest in the territory. It covers a surface of 1W0 acres, with an aver age dept h of VI feet, and contains about eight thousand million gallons of water. It is sit uated fifteen miles southwest of Florence. A levee of earth has been thrown up across a deoression in the plain 14,100 feet in length. 125 feet in width at the bottom and 2S feet in width at top. 2 to 1 !oe on each side, and an average height of 25 feet. The waste is regu lated by 3 cast iron pies 3 feet in diameter, set in solid masonry, regulated by gates and tower. This reservoir eot $i50,0u0, and sup plies water for 6,000 acres.

In a residence of sixteen years in Arizona the vvri'er has only known two nersons to bo overcome by tho hoat, and they recovered. Their condition, however. was more the resuit or wtiisKy man ner.t. Ihe air is so dry here that a registered temperature of 110 degrees is not as oppres sive as 80 degrees in St. Louis or New York. The Signal Service bureau lias recognized tliis fact, and report the difference between th apparent aud sensible temieruture to be f ufls 30 degrees. At nearly all times there is a pleasant breeze; the iight aro invariably pool in the rammer, and out-door labor is performed without serious discomfort to either man or beast on the warmest days. Very seldom does the thermometer get be low the freezing point in winter, and in the gnrdens of Floreuce to-day are castor bean plants two years or more old, UNTOUCHED BY tEOST. Orange and lemon trees require slight pro tection during the winter for a year or two, until the wood is sufficiently hardened. While it is a popular thing for one to say that he is "not here for his health," it is an undisputed fact that for all pulmonary ail ments no climate on earth is equal to South ern Arizona, and there nre numbers of active, industrious citizens, with but one lung, who earns here years ago, expecting to live but a few weeks. Hut for all that, the wonderful Casa Grande valley is something better than a health resort. . That portion of the great Casa Grande vallev lving along the line of the Southern Pacific railway in the vicinity of Casa Grande eiil Arizola is at present, and with good reason considered one of the most desirable portions of this magnificent Southern Ari zona. Great changes have been made in the appearance of this part of the valley during the last four years. It was about that long ago that the Florence canal was completed aud tho work of actual improvement begun. It is useless to deny that under our present water system there is nothing like a suffi cient water to irrigate this vast body of land THE CASA CilANDK VALLEY CANAL is forty-three miles in lenrth and covers 60,000 acres of laud, about 7,000 of which are under cultivation. It is so constructed that it can lie easily enlarged and its capacity in creased. A reservoir covering l.M) acres, having storage capacity of eight billion gal lons, in tlte southeast corner of township 6, range 8, gives ample supply of water the year round to ail farmers located below it, but those above suffer by a shortage of water curing a few weeks in summer. It is proposed to remedy this by the con struction of a huge reservoir at the Bnttes, fifteen miles northeast of Florence. Com petent engineers have examined and reported uMn the scheme and pronounce it feasible. Notice. Any information regarding the Casa Grande valley will be cheerfully fur- '. nished bv Ghas.
