THE CASA GRANDE VALLEY.
nformation for Those Seeking Homes In the Garden Spot of the West. Pinal comity was organized in 1875 from portions of Pima, Maricopa and Yavapai counties, and emituiiis an area of 5.36H square miles, or S.-WS.WO acres, one-tliird of which eouidtie made productive by a systematic iBnd atorage f the surplus water now ruuutiig to waste. Next to Maricopa It is tlie most im tiortaiitairiioultiii'al county hi the Territory. It it traversed from east to west by the Southern I'aci He railroad, and a branch pt t he great Santa Fe system is now approach ills frum the north. The objective point of this read is a connection w ith the honora road, of the same system. The Southern Pacific is also building; in this direction from Temiie.and it is confidently behoved that werk will not cease until. the Deer Creek eon) fields are reached and connection is made with another branch of that road rnn ningf rum Howie to tilobe and now complet ed to Fort Thomas. Thus it will lie seen that Phial county is the theater of railroad building at the pres ent time, and inside of a year I lorenoe, the county seat, will be A RAILROAD CRNTBB. At prcseut it contains a population Tof about 1500, hut with the completion of tliese tw railroads aud the Uiitto reservoir no .itv in Ariziuiik can aimronea it for natural ndvantagcs.laml a large Increase in popula tion will follow. Florence is at an elevation of 1553 feet above sea level, situated near the Gila river, twenty -six miles northwest ot t lie railroad station of Casa Grande, with wnicn it is connected bv an elegantly equipped dnily stage line. Going and coming stages run by the old Cusu Grande ruins, and passengers are allowed n short time to in spect t Item. There are many handsome pri vate residences in Florence, several brick stores, good hotel, an excellent graded school employing four teachers, churches, secret societies, a Commercial Chip, a new s paper (the nly one in the county), and the handsomest court house in the Territory. Here is held the United States Court for the .i;..i,. n,.u.ea.l Af ftila Grnhain and Pinal counties. The streets are lined with shade trees, which impart an air of comfort ou the warmest days. PRODUCTS OF TBE VALLEY. tTiiliho tne Salt river, the waters of the iila are fresh and pure; the soil contains no Alkali, is a deep, rich gray ash, especially adapted to the growth of the prune, olive, almond, peach, tig, pear, apricot and fruits of all kinds, which pay largely on the invest ment. It is also the natural home of alfalfa, which grows in the most proline manner. The grape does exceptionally well in this valley, and wine and raisin culture is destin ed to became 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 their golden fruit each year without pro tection, aud a few date palm trees are also In full bearing. The season is from six weeks to two months earlier than Southern Califor nia, which gives fruit growers an appreciat ed advantage in THR EARLY MARKETS. The absence of fogs and nightly dews is a formidable obstacle to the destructive and i.iitri,tlv sn;ile-biisr. and the fruits of tlie valiev are all bright and clean. All the agri cultural products oi temiierate and semi tropic aones are easily grown here, the long seasons giving a succession of crops tbat double or treble the productive value ot the land. PRICES OF LAND. Improved lands, with government title and water right, can be bought for from ta to $50 per acre, according to location and im provements. In the immediate neighbor hood and to the south of the Casa Grande ruins there are thousands of acres covered with a heavv growth of mesuuite timber yet open to settlement. These are among the choicest in the valley. Water in inexhausti ble quantity is found at a depth of from twentv to thlrtv feet; in fact, a river seems to be flowing underneath. Here is a splen did opportunity to take np and improve 4 and with a pumping system of irrigation, -which is said to be successful on small tracts. However, with the completion of the Hutte mservoir, pumping will lie a thing of the .past, and it is only mentioned here for the purpose of showing what can be done, aud to magnify the further fact that what was once -considered A3 UNINHABITABLE DESERT iis in treth the most productive land on. the globe, asid that there is water in abundance to bring every foot of it under cultivation, only wait iag for the magic wand of capital to develop it. There is no water-storage i scheme on the Pacific coast that has one-hulf the natural .advantages and so few engineer ing difficulties as the Butte reservoir. Here -nature has .built the abutments in ever-hy-nil thcit is left for lllttll to do IS -to put in theheadgate, the bluffs winch form the gorge betas only separated by a paltry '220 feet. A country is drained through this narrow jaaywn 20U miles sqiiure, representing - 40.WW square mites, or larger than Maine and MassachusettscombineiL The.-ainfull is suf ficient to till the reservoir twice a year, and the land to tie 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. CASA GRANDE RESERVOIR. The reservoir of the Casa Grande Valley Canal company is the largest in the territory. It covers a surface of WJU acres, with an aver age depth of 12 feet, and contains about eight thousand miliiua gallons of water. It is sit uated tifteen miles southwest of Florence. A levee of earth has been thrown up across I a depression in the plain H.00U feet in leagt. 125 feet in width at the bottom and 25 feet in width at top. 2 to 1 slope on each side, ond an taverage height of 25 feet. The waste is regu lated by east iron pipes 3 feet in diameter, set in solid masonry, regulated by gate nnd tower. This reservoir cost $150,009, und sup plies water for 8,000 acres. Meteorological Statistics. The signal service of the general govern- Ti", . ,t-weia station at Florence from from July, 1S0. to aprtLlXTC, er-i ollow- 4nsr statistics, which may s may be taken as a But UKie to tne prevailing itiuipvraiuro kivou uring the series of six yeas: 1800.

Their condition, however, was more the result of whisky than heat, i'he air is so dry here that a registered temiierature of 110 degrees is not as oppres sive as 80 degrees in St. Louis or New York. The Signal Service bureau has recognized this faet, and reports the difference between the apparent and sensible temperature to fie foils te) decrees. At nearly all times there is a pleasant breeze ; the nights are invariably cooi in the summer, and out-door labor is lierfo'rmed without serious discomfort to either man or beast on tlie warmest days. Very seM'iin does the thermometer get be low the freezing lKiint in winter, and in the gardens otFloreuce to-day are castor bean plants two years or more old, UNTOUCHED BY FROST. Orange and lemon trees require slight pro tection during the winter for a year or two, until the wood is sufficiently hardcued. While it is a popular t hing for one to say that lie 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 A rizoua, aud there are numbers of active, industrious citizens, with but one lung, who came here years ago, exjieeting to live but a few weeks. But for ail that, the wonderfui Casa Grande valley is something better than a health resort. That portion of the great Casa Grande yaUey lying along the line of the Southern Pacific railway in the vicinity of CasaGrailde a..d Arhsola is at present, and with good rras. n considered one of the most desirable portions of t his magnificent Southern Ari zona. Great changes have been made m the appearance of this part of the valley during tlie last four years. It was about that long i,. tl.B l. lnreiicecamil was completed and the work of actual improvement uegim. It is useless to deny that under pur present water system there is nothing like a suffi cient water to irrigate this vast body of THE CASA GRANDE VALLEY CANAL is forty-three miles in length and covers 80.000 acres of land, about 7.0U0 of which are under cultivation. It is so constructed that it can be easily enlarged and its capacity in creased. A reservoir covering 1,800 acres, having storage capacity of eight billion gal lons, in the southeast corner of township o, range 8, gives ample supply of water the year round to all farmers located below It, but those ulKive suffer by a sliortuge of water during a few weeks in summer. It is proposed to remedy this by the con struction of a huge reservoir at the Buttes, fifteen miles northeast of Florence. Com petent engineers have examined and reported upon the scheme and pronounce it feasible. HOUSE M EMORIAL No. 4. To the Senate and House of Representa tives of the United States In Con gress Assembled: We, your Memorialists, the Nine teenth Legislative Assembly of the Territory of Arizona, respectfully rep resent that the National Irrigation Congress, held in Phoenix, Arizona, on the 15th of Decemher, A. D. 1890, unanimously adopted the following : Whereas, The Pima and Maricopa Indians tribes numbering in the aggregate ten thousand souls, have been deprived of the waters used by them in irrigation before the advent of the white race in America, through the appropriation of such waters by settlers on the headwaters of theGila river; and Whereas. Through the loss of such waters the lands once cultivated by these tribes have become barren and worthless, and the mem bers of such tribes have become a charge on the Government, and forced by the loss of their fields into lives of degradation and penury ; and j 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 property and property rights; and Whereas, The Government of the United States has and now is engaged in the expend! tura of hundreds of thousands of dollars for the construction of works of irrigation for the reclamation of lands belonging toother 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 Butte reservoir, in Pinal county, 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. Eesolved, 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 will 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 the Territory of Arizona, desire to go on record as earnestly endorsiog the above recommendations of the Sixth National Irrigation Congress for the following reasons: 1. The reservoir site referred to having been withdrawn from entry by Government authorities, cannot now be utilized by any private corporation, and tha Government therefore occupies the indefensible position of doing noth ing itself or allowing anyone else to improve this great natural reservoir site. 2. We 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 6uPP41nr. liy this means will a home life be furniowi for the Indian and he will more rapidly advana i civilization as a consequence. lie will abandon his nomadic life; his children will be kept at home and educated in neighborhood schools, instead of being sent to large Indian schools at a dis tance where they are kept (as it would seem) 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 wrong in this regard. 3. The Pima and Maricopa Indian reservation contains 350,000 acres of as fertile land 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 onr farmers and ranchmen for subsistence. 4. The construction of a storage res ervoir at the Buttes by the Govern ment oilers a plain business proposi tion for the correction of these evils. Eesolved, That the Secretary of the Territory be instructed 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 and Speaker of the House of Eepresentatives.
