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 comities, and contains nu area of 5,8t'H square miles, or 3,4.15.520 acres, one-third of srhiuh could be made productive by a systematic storage cf the surplus water now rutmin to waste. Next to Maricopa it is the most im portant agricultural comity IntheTerritory. It it traversal from east to west by the Southern Pucilic railroad, and a branch of the great Santa Fe system is now approach ing from the north. The objective point of this road is a connection with the Sonora road, of the same system. The Southern Pacific is also building in this direction from Temiie.und it is confidently believed that work w ill aot cense until the Deer Creek eoal fields are reached and connection is mode with another branch of that road run ning train Bowie to Globe and now complet ed to Fart Thomas. Thus it will be seen that Pinal county is the theater of railroad building at the pres ent time, and inside of a year Florence, the county seat, will be A BAILBOAD CENTBU. At present it contains a population of about 1M0, but with the completion of these two railroads and the Butte reservoir no city fn Arizona can approach it for natural advantages, and a large increase in popula tion will follow; Florence is at an elevation of 155S feet above sea level, situated nearthe Gila river, tweutv-six miles northwest of the . railroad station of Casa Grande, with which it is connected by au elegantly equipped dolly stage line. Going aud coming stuges run by the aid Casa Grande rums, and passengers arc allowed a short time to in spect them. There are many handsome 'pri vate residences in Florence, several brick tores, good hotel, an 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 composed of Gila, Graham and Pinal counties. The streets are lined with hade trees, which impart an air of comfort on the warmest days. FBODUCT8 OF THR VALLEY. Unlike the Salt river, the waters of the ilia 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, fig, 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 prolific manner. The grape does exceptionally well in this valley, and wioe and raisin culture is 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 their golden fruit each year without 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 iu TBI (ABLY MARKETS. The absence of fogs and nightly dews is a formidable olwtacle to the destructive and unsightly scale-bug, and the fruits of the valley ore all bright and clean. All the agri cultural products of teraernt and semi tropic zones are easily grow n here, the long seasons giving a succession of crops that double or treble the productive value of the laud. pbicbs or LAUD. Improved lands, with government title and water right, can be bought for from $20 to $50 per acre, according to location owl im provements. In the immediate neighbor liood and to the south of the Casa Grande ruins there are thousands of acres covered 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 twenty to thirty feet; in fact, 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 ou small tracts. However, with the completion of the Butte reservoir, pumping will be a thing of the ssaat, and it is only mentioned here for the purpose of showing what cun be done, and to magnify the further fact that what was once considered A9 UNINHABITABLE DSSBBT 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 magic wand of capitul to develop it. There is no water-storage scheme on the Pacific coast that has one-half the natural advantages and so few engineer ing difficulties as tne mute reservoir, tiere nature has built the abutments in ever-living rock, and nil that is left for man to do is to put in the headgute, the bluffs which form the gorge being only separated by a paltry 220 feet. A country is drained through this narrow canyon 2011 miles square, representing 40.000 square miles, or larger than Maine and Massachusettscombined. The rainfall is suf ficient 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. CASA OBAKDS BES8BVOIB. The reservoir of the Casa Grande Valley Canal company is the largestin the territory. It-covers n surface of 100U acres, with an aver age depth of 12 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 depression in the plain 14,000 feet in length, 125 feet in width at the bottom and 25 feet in width at top, 2 to 1 slojie on each side, and an average height of 2$ feet. The waste is regu lated by 3 cost iron pipes 3 feet in diameter, set in solid masonry, regulated by gates and tower. This reservoir cost $150,000, and sup plies water for 6,000 acres. Meteorological Statistics. The signal service of the general govern ment maintained a station at Florence from 1874 to 1862. The reports covering the period from July, 1880, to April, 1882, gives the follow ing statistics, which may be taken as a safe Suiile to the prevailing temperature given nrimr the series of six yeas: 1880. Mean. Max. July St. 1U August :...m.i 112 September 81.0 101 October 68.0 W Novem ber . . . 52.1 80 December 50.0 77 1881.

Their condition, however, was more the result of whisky than heat. The 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 1 ork. The Signal Service bureau has recognized this fact, and reports 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 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 gardens of Florence to-day are castor bean plants two years or more old, UNTOUCHED BY fBOST. 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 are numbers of active, industrious citizens, with but one lung, who eome here years ago, expecting to live but a few weeks. But for all that( the wonderful Casa Grande valley is something better than a health resort. Tht portion of the great Casa Grande ys!le lig along the line of the Southern 1 Pacific railwoy In the vicinity of CnsaGrande and Arlzolu is at present, and with good reason considered one of the most-desirable portions of this mognificent Southern Ari zona. Great changes have beon made lu tne apiearnnce of this part of the valley during the lust four vears. 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 svstein there is nothing like a RUttl clent water to irrigate this vast body of land THE CASA GBANDE VALLEY CAS AL is forty-three miles In lcntrth and covers 60.01)0 acres of land, about 7,000 of which are under cultivation. It Is so constructed that it can he easilv enlurEted and its capacity in creased. A reservoir covering l.hjw acres. having storage capacity oi mfm mi,.. Ions, in the southeust corner of township B, range u, gives anipie suppij , , -r 1 round to all farmers located below it, but those above suffer by a shortage of water during a few weeks in summer. It is proposed to remedy this by the con struction of a huge reservoir ntthe Uiittes, fifteen miles uorthcast of Florence. Com petent engineers haveexamlned and reported uixn the scheme and pronounce it feasible. HOUSE MEMORIAL No. 4. To the Senate snd 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. 1890, unanimously adopted the following : Whereas, The Pima and Maricopa Indians tribe numbering in the aggregate ten thousand souls, have been deprived of the waters used by thera in irrigation before the advent of the white race In America, through the appropriation of such waters by settlers on the headwaters of tlieGila 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, aud 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 uch tribes in their property and property rights; aud 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 propose,! construction, under the plans of the U. S. Geological Survey, of the Butte reservoir, in Pinal count, Arizona, recently reported, to again reclaim the lands of these tribes, believing that by so doing can the Government alone honorably redeem the broken pledge 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 theconstant friends of the white race. Resolved, That we approve the proposed construction of such reservoir not only a 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 Arissona, 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 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 au 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 be will more rapidly advance in civilization as a consequence. lie will abandon his nomadic life ; bis 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 nnhappy 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 farmera 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.
