THE CASA GRANDE VALLEY.
reformation for Those Seeking Homes tn the Garden Spot of the West. Pinal count;' was organized in 1875 from portions of Pima, Maricopa and Yavapai counties, and contains an area of 5.3fi8 square miles, or 3,435 520 acres, one-third of which could be made productive by a systematic storage rf the surplus water now running to waste. Next to Maricopa it is the moat im portant agricultural county tilth Territory. It it traversed from east to west by the Southern Pacific railroad, and a branch of the great Santa Fe system is now approach Ins; from the north. lh) objective point of this road is a connect! in with the Sonora road, of the same system. The Southern Pacific is also building in this direction from Temie.aiid it is confidently believed that work will not cease until the Deer Creek coal fields are reached and connoctiou 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 timo, and inside of a year Florence, the county seat, will be A BAILEOAD CENTS H. At present it contains a population "of about 15U0, but with the completion of these two railroads and the Butte reservoir no city in Arizona can approach it for nutural advantages, and a large increase iu popula tion wilt follow, Florence is at an elevation of 15r8 feet above sea level, situated near the Gila river, twenty-six miles northwest of the railroad station of Casa Grande, with which it is connected by au elegantly equipped dily st litre line. Going and coming stages fun by the old Casa Grande ruins, and passengers are allowed a short time to in spect them. There are mnny handsome pri vate residences in Florence, several brick stores, 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 shade trees, which impart an air of comfort ou the warmest days. PBODUCTS OF THB VALLEY. Unlike the Salt river, the waters of the ilia are fresh and pure; the soil contains no jilkali, is a deep, rich gray ash, especially adupted 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 iu the most proline 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 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 also in full bearing. The season is from six weeks to two mouths earlier than Southern Califor nia, which gives fruit growers an appreciat ed advantage in ,IHK 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 alley are all bright and clean. All the agri cultural products of temierate and semi tropio zones are easily grown here, the long seasons giving a succession of crops that 'double or treble the productive value of the land. PRICES 01 LAND. Improved lands, with government title and water right, can be bought for from Sf'iO to $50 p?r 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 heavy growth of mesquite timber yet open to settlement. These are among the choicast 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 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 ouce considered AS UNINHABITABLE DE8EBT la 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 capital o develop it. There is no water-storage scheme on the Pacific coast that has one-half nhe natural advantages and so few engineer ing difficulties as the Butte reservoir. Here 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 feet. A country is drained through this narrow canyon 2U) miles square, representing .4U.O(Xsqnare miles, or larger than Maine and jllassachusettaeombined. The rainfall is suf ficient to till the reservoir twice a year, and -the land to be brought under cultivation is ? Tactically limitless, mis may reaa line a airy tale, but it is every word true, and has .been verified time and again. CASA G BAUDS BE8EBVOIH. The reservoir of the Casa Grande Valley Canal company is the largest in the territory. TtmvortH surface of ltM acres, with an aver- :ge depth of 12 feet, and contains about eight t housand million gallons or waier. n 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 23 feet in width at top. 2 to 1 slope on each side, and au verage height of 25 feet. The waste is regu lated by 8 cast iron pipes feet in diameter, set in solid masonry, regulutcd by gates and tower. This reservoir cost $150,000. and sup plies water for tl.OOO acres. Meteorological Statistics. The signal service of the general govern ment maintained a station at Florence from 1874 to The reports covering the period from Juiy, 1880, to April. 182, gives the follow ing statistics, which may be taken as a safe Suide to the prevailing temperature given uring the series of Bix yeas : lean.

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 York. The Signal Service bureau has recognized this fact, and reports the difference between the apparent and sensible temperature to be fulls 80 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 IBOST. Orange and lemon trees require slight pro section 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 bis health," it is an undisputed fact that for all pulmonary ail ments no climate on earth is equal to South- frn Arizona, and there are numbers of active, adustrious citizens, with but one lung, who fame here years ago, expecting to live but a cw weeks. But for all that, the wonderful Casa Grande valley is something better than li.aat.li fuiuirt. That portion of the great Casa Grande Yglley lying along the line of the Southern Pacific railway in the vicinity of CasaGrande and Arlzola 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 apiiearonce 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 sutli cicnt water to irrigate this vast body of land 1KB CASA GRANDE VALLEY CANAL is forty-three miles in length and covers 00,000 acres of land, about 7,000 of which are under cultivation. It is so constructed that it cau 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 t he year round to all farmers located below it, but those above sutler by a shortage of water uuring a few weeks In summer. It is proposed to remedy this by the con struction of a huge reservoir utthe Butts, fifteen miles northeast of Florence. Com petent engineers haveexamiued anil 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 Thoenix, Arizona, on the 15th of December, A. D. 1806, 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 them in irrigation before the adventof the wrhiteracein 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 aud 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 w hite race ; and Whereas, The people of the United States have pledged themselves by solemn treaty to protect such tribes iu 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 to other Indian tribes; therefore, be it Resolved, That this Congress do approve the proposed construction, nndertbe plans of the U. S. Geological Surrey, 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 thus preserve from further want and degradation two of the surviving Indian tribes of the American eontinent that have always been the constant friends of the white race. Resolved, That we approve tho 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-respecting 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 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. 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 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 wr?ng in this regard. 3. The Piina 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 wanderingPapagoes, who are now compelled to prey upon the herds of our farmers and ranchmeu 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.
