THE CASA GRANDE VALLEY.
formation for Those Seeking Homes In the Garden Spot of the West. Pinal county was organized in 1S75 from portions of Pima, Maricopa und Yavapai tsounties, and contains an area of 5.368 square miles, or 3,485,SA) acres, one-third of which could be made productive by a systematic storage vt the surplus water now running to wast. Next to Maricopa it is the most im portant agricultural county IntheTerritory. It it traversed from east to west by the southern Pacific railroad, and a branch of the great Santa Ke system is now approach ing from the north. The objective point of tins road is a connection with the Sonora road, f the same system. The Southern Pacific is also building in this direction from Tempe.and it is eontideiitly believed that work will not cease until the Deer Creek coal fields are reached and connection is made with another branch of that road run ning from Bowie to Globe and now complet ed to Fort Thomas. Thus it will be seen that Pinal county is (the theater ef railroad building at tho pres 'ent time, and Inside of a year Florence, the county seat, will be A BAILBOAD CENTER. At present it contains a population Tot about 15u0, but with the completion of these two railroads and the Butte reservoir no city in Arizona can approach it for natural advantages, and a large increase in popula tion will follow Florence is at an elevation of 1553 feet abve sea level, situated near the Gila river, twenty -six miles northwest of the railroad station of Casa Grande, with which it is connected by an elegantly equipped dnily stage line. Going and coming stages run by the eld Caea Grande ruins, and passengers are allowed a short t ime to in spect them. 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 Club, u news paper (the only ne in the county), and the handsomest court house in the Territory. Here is held the United States Court for the district composed ef Gila. Graham and Pinal counties. The streets are lined w ith shade trees, which impart an air of comfort on the warmest days. PRODUCTS OV THS VALLEY. Unlike the Salt river, the waters of the Jila are fresh and pure i 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 ulfnlfn, which grows in the most proliiio manner. The grape does exceptionally well in this valley, and wine and raisin culture is destin ed to become a prominent industry. Citrus fruits have bees cultivated to a limited extent; there are a nuinlier of wrange trees in the neighborhood of Florence which bear their gulden fruit each year w ithout pro tection, and 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 THB EARLY MARKETS. The absence of fogs and nightly dews is a formidable obstacle to the destructive and unsightly scale-bug. and the fruits of the valley are all bright and clean. All the agri cultural products of temperate and semi tropic zones are easily grown here, the long seasons giving a succession of crops thut double or treble the productive value of the laud. fRiCKS or USD. Improved lands, with government title and water right, can bo bought for from SJO to $50 per acre, according to location and im- Erovemeuts. In the immediate neighbor ood and to the south of the Cast Grande ruins there are thousands of acres covored with a heavy growth of mesquite 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 thirty feet; in fact, a river seems to be flowing underneath. Here is a splen did oPixrtunlty 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 what can be done, and to magnify the further fact that what was once -considered AS CRISRABITABLB DBSEBT 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 w aiting for the magic wand of capital to develop it. There is no water-storage scheme on the Paciflo coast that has one-half the natural advantages and so few engineer' ing difficulties as the Butte reservoir. Here nature has built the abutments in ever-uv- ing rock, and all that is left for man to do is to put in the headgate. the bluff s which form the gorge being only separated by a paltry 220 feet. A country is drained through this narrow canyon 2JJ0 miles square, representing 40,000 square miles, or larger than Maine ana - JitsSSt'.'lHsfttjiWjinbined. The rainfall issuf ilcient to fill 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 oeen verinea time ana again. CASA OBAXDH BE8EBVOIB.

Their condition, however, wus more the result of whisky than heat, fhe air is so dry here that a registered temperature of 110 degrees is not as oppres sive a 80 degrees in St, Louis or New York. The Signal Service bureau has recognized this fact, and report) the difference between the apparent and sensible temperature to be fulls 30 degrees. At nearly all times there Is a pleasant breeze; the nights are invariably cool in the summer, and out-door labor is jmrformed 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 gardens of Florence to-day are castor bean plants two years or more old, UHTOUCHRD BY JBOST. 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 fuct that for all pulmonary ail ments no climate on earth is equal to South ern Arizona, and there are numbers of active, indtiktriouucitizeiiK, with but one lung, who c me here years ago, expecting to live but a fw weeks. But for all that, the wonderful Casu Grande vailey is something better than a health resort. That pnrtun of the great Casa Grande yql!ej ! ing along the lino of the Southern Pacific railway in thevicinlty of CasaGrande acd Arizola is at present, und 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 and the 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 THS CASA GRANDE VALLEY CANAL is forty-three miles in length and covers 60,000 acres of land, about 7,000 of which are under cultivation. It is so constructed that it can be easily enlarged and its capacity in creased. A reservoir covering 1,600 acres, having storage capacity of eight billion gal lons. In the southeast corner of township 8, range 8. gives ample supply of water the year round to all farmers located below it, but those above suffer by a shortage of water uui ing n 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 haveexumined and reported upon the scheme and pronounce it feasible. HOUSE MEMORIAL 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 December, A. D. 1896, 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 t he 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 landsonee 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 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 expendl ture of hundreds of thousands of dollars for the construction of works of Irrigation for the reclamation of lauds 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 Buttes 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 thns 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 lust 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-re specting community. Now, therefore, your Memorialists, the Nineteenth Legislative Assembly ! ot tne t erritory oi ArizodfgiQ g0 on record as earnetjj endorsing the above recommendations 0f the Sixth NatisESl" Irrigation Congress for the following reasons: 1. The reservoir site referred to having been withdrawn from entry by Government authorities, cannot 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. 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- supporting, liy 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 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 our farmers and ranchmen for subsistence. I 4. The construction of a storage res ervoir at the Buttes by the Govern ment offers a plain business proposi tion for the correction of these evils. Resolved, 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.
