THE CASA GRANDE VALLEY.
information for Those Seeking Homes In the Garden Spot of the West. . Pinal county was organized in 1815 from portions of Pima, Maricopa uml Yavapai bounties, and contains an area of a.StiH square miles, or ,435,520 acres, one-third of which boitid be made productive by a systematic storage t f the surplus water now ruuuimr to waste. Next to Maricopa it is the most im portant utfi-iculturul county in the Territory. It it traversed from east to west by the Southern P.iciUe railroad, and a branch jif the great Santa Ve system is now approach ing from the north. The objective point of tins rad is a connection with the Suiiora road, of the same system. The Southern Pacific is also building in this direction fro Tempe.nnd it is confidently lielieved taat Work will not cease until the Deer Creek coal fields are reached and connection is made with another branch of that road running- from Howie to Globe and now complet ed to Fort Thomas. , Thus it will be seen that. Pinal county is the theater tf railroad building at tne pres ent time, and inside of a year Florence, the county seat, will be A BAILBOAD CKNTEH. At present it contains a population 'of about Iftju. but with the completion of these two railroads and the liutte reservoir no city in Arizona can approach it for natural advantages, and a large increase lu popula tion will follow. Florence is at an elevation of 1513 feet above sea level, situated near the Gila river, twentv-six miles northwest of the railroad station of Casa Grande, with whicn it is connected by an elegantly equipped dnily stusre line. Going and cumins stages run by the old Cua Grande ruins, and passengers are allowed a short time to in !ect them. There are ninny handsome, pri vate residences in Florence, several brick stores, (rood hotel, en excellent graded school employing four teachers, churches, secret societies, a Commercial Club, a news paper (the only one in the county), and the handsomest court house in the Territory. Here is held the United States Court for the district ewmpwed f Gila, Graham and Pinal counties. The streets are lined with .ahade trees, which impart an air of comfort on the warmest days. PRODUCTS OP THK VALLEY. Unlike ths Salt river, the waters of the Jila are fresh and pure; the soil contains no jlkali, is a deep, rich gray ash, especially adapted to the growth of the prune, olivo, almomt. ieach, hj, iear, apricot and fruits of ail kind -i, which pay largely on the invest ment. It is also the natural home of nifalfs, which grows in the most, proline inuuner. The grape does exceptionally well in thus valley, and wine attd 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 Floreuce which bear their golden fruit each year without pro tection, and a few date palm trees are aUo in full bearing. The season is from six weeks to two mouths earlier than Southern Califor nia, which gives fruit growers oil appreciat ed advantage iu TUB EABLT MAKKKT8. 1 . . f f , . . .. .1 .. . .5 . 1 1 v dare la 1 formidable obstacle to the destructive and unsightly scale-bug. and the fruits of the valley are all bright and clean, ah tne agri cultural products of temperate and semi tmnii. vrttine Hn eusilv trrown here, the luil seasons giving a succession of crops that double or treble the productive value of the land. PEICE9 OF LAND Improved lands, with government title and water right, can be bought for from i-'O to $50 ier acre, according to location and im provements. In the immediate neighlnjr hood and to the south of the Casa Grande ruius there are thousands of acres covered with a heavy growth of inesquite timber yet open to settlement. These ure among the choicest in the valley. Water iu inexhausti ble quantity is found at a depth of from tweutv to thirty feet; intact, a river seems to be flowing underneath. Here is a splen did opportunity 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 llntte reservoir, pumping will be a thing of the past, aud it is only mentioned here toi the purpose of showing w hat can be doue, and to magnify the further fact that what was once cousiuereu AS UNIXHABITABI.B DKSEKT Is In truth the most productive land on the globe, and that there is water in abundance to bring every loot or it unuer cultivation, only waiting for the magie wand of capital to develop It. There is no water-storage : scheme on the Pacific coast that has oue-hulf the natural advantages aud so few engineer ing difficulties as the Butte reservoir. Here nature has built the abutments iu ever-living rock, and all that is left for man to do is to put in the iieadgate, the mutts wnicn mrm the gorge being only separatea oy a pa, try 220 feet. A country is drained through this -2201 narrow canyon 200 miles square, representing 4v.O0O gouure miles, or larger than Maine and Ma;aebuettscombined. Therainfall is suf ficient to fill the reservoir twice a year, and the land to be brought under cultivation is practically limitless, I cut may reaa iikbo fairy tale, but it is every word true, aud has been veritled time and again. CASA GBASDK JiRBZHVOIB. The reservoir of the Casa Grande Valley Canal company is the largest in the territory. It-covers a surface of UilK) acres, with an aver age depth of 12 feet, and contains about eight thousand million gallons of water. It is sit uated fifteen iniiea southwest of Florence. A levee of earth has been thrown up across a depression in the plain 14.UX) feet in length, 125 feet in width at the bottom and 2 feet iu width at top, 2 to 1 slope on each side, aud an average height of 25 feet. The waste is regu lated by 3 cast iron piis feet iu diameter, aet in solid masonry, regulated by gates and tower. This roservoir cost il50,0U0, and sup plies water for 0,000 acres. Meteorological Statistics. The signal servioe of the general govern ment maintained a station at Florence from 1874 to 18h2. The reports covering the period from July, 18b0, to April, 182, gives the follow ing statistics, which may be taken as a safe guide to tne prevailing temperature given during tiie scries ot six yens: lboU. .Mean.

Their condition, however, was more the result of whisky than heat. The air is so dry here that a registered temiierature of 110 degrees is not as oppres sive as SO degrees in St. Louis or New York. The Signal Service bureau has recognized this fact, and rejiorts the dilference between the apparent and sousible temperature to be fulls 30 degrees. At nearly all times there is a pleasant breeze; the nights are invariably cool in tiie summer, aud 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, antiin the gardens of Florence to-day are castor bean plants two years or more old, UNTOUCHED BY TROST. Orange and lemon trees require slight pro tection during the winter for a year or two, until the wood is surociently hardened. While it is a popular tiling for one to say that he is "not here for his health," it is an undisouted fact that for ull pulmonary ail incuts no climate on earth is euual to Sotith- frn Arizona, and there are numbers of active, adustrious citizens, with but one lung, who Ciime here years ago, expecting to live but a few weeks. Hut for all that, the wonderful C.isa Grande valley is something bettr than a health mwrt, That i;rton of the great Casa Grande b "i7 along the hue of the Southern Pacific railway in thevloinity of CasoGrande and Arizoia is at present, and with good reason considered one of the most, desirable portions of this rua';uiflcent Southern Ari xona. Great changes have been made in the appenrance of this part of the valley during the last four years. It was about that long ago that the Florence canal was completed nud the work of actual improvement beguu. It is useless to deny that under our present wator svstem there is nothing like a stilfi oiant water to irrigate this vast body of laud TUB CASA GBASDB VALLKY CANAL is fortv-tlnea miles In lensrth and covers bO.utiO acres of land, about 7.000 of w hich are ti dsfer cultivation. It is so constructed that it can be euiiiv enlarged and its capacity in creased. A roservoir covering 1.600 acres, having storage capacity of elfdit billion gal lons, in the southeast corner of townships, rain'e 8. gives ample supply of w nter the year round to all farmers located beiow it. but those above suffer by a shortage of water miring a few w eeks iu summer. It is proposed to remedy this by the ran rtruction of a huge reservoir at the Huttes, lifteen miles northeast of Florence. Com petent engineers huveexamined and reported uiion the scheme and pronounce it feasible. HOUSE MEMORIAL No. 4. To the Ssnata and House of Representa tives of the United States in Con gress Assembled: We,- your Memorialists, the Nine teen tli Legislative Assembly of the Territory of Arizona, respectfully rep resent that the National Irrigation Congress, held in Phoenix, Arizona, od the 15th of December, A. D. 1896, unanimously adopted the following: Whereas, The Pima aud Maricopa Indians tribes numbering in the aggregate ten thousand souls, have been deprived of the waters used by thein in irrigation before the adventof 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 lundsonce cultivated by thesetribes have become barren and worthless, nnd the mem bers of such tribes have become ft charge on the Government, and forced by the lo3s of their fields into lives of degradation nnd penury; and Whereas, Such tribes have from the ear liest days been the friends and allies of the whiterace; 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! ture 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 Buttes reservoir. In Pinal county, Arizona, recently reported, to again reclaim the lands of these tribes, believing that by so doing pan 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 thecoustant friends of thewhite 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 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 of the Territory of Arizona, desire to go on record as earnestly endorsing 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 the Government therefore occupies the indefensible position of doing noth ing itself r allowing any one else to improve this great natural reservoir site. 2. Vt'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- snDDortincr. jjy mis 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 anil 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 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 Buttes by the Govern ment offers 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 Representatives.
