THE CASA GRANDE VALLEY.
Information for Those Seeking Homes In the Garden Spot of the West. Pinal county was organised in 1875 from portions of Pima, Maricopa and Yavapai comities, and contains au area of 5.3ti8square miles, or 8,4.H5.520 acres, one-third of which contd be made productive by a systematic storage f the surplus water now running to waste. Next to Maricopa it is the most im- fortant agricultural county in the Territory, t it traversed from east to west by the Southern Pacific 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 Tempe,and it is connelently believed that work will not cease until the Deer Creek eoal fields are reached and connection is made with anot her 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 tbe theater of raiiroad building at the pres ent time, and inside of a year Florence, the ouuty scat, will be . A HAILHOAD cestek. At present it contains a population of about 1500, 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 155S feet above sea level, situated near the Gila river, twenty-six miles northwest of the railroad station of Cosa Grande, with which it is connected by an elegantly equipped uiiy stage line. Going and coming stages run by the old Casu Grande ruins, and passengers are allowed a short time to in spect them. There are many handsome pri vate residences in Florence, several brick store, 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 Gilu. Graham and Pinal counties. The streets are lined with shade trees, which impart an air of comfort on the warmest days. FBODUCT8 OF THB VALLEY. Culike 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, ieach, tig, pear, apricot and fruits of aU kinds, which pay largely on the invest ment. It is also the natural home of alfalfa, which grows iu the most prolific manner. The grape does exceptionally well iu 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 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 mouths earlierthan 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 tbe 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 that double or treble the productive value of the land. PRICES Or LAND. Improved lands, with government title and water right, can be bought for from $20 to 950 per acre, according to location ana im nrnvementft. 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 choicest in the valley. Water in inexhausti ble quantity is found at a depth of from twentv to thirty feet; in fact, a river seem 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 once considered AN UNINHABITABLE DESERT Is in truth the most productive land on the globe, and that there is water in abundance to bring every loot ot unuer cultivation, onlv wuiting for the magic wand of capital 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 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 tlie headgate, the Dm its wnicu form the srnrea beine- onlv seoarated by a paltry 220 feet. A country is drained through this narrow anyon 200 miles square, representing 40,000 square miles, or larger than Maine and MasBocbusettseombined. Iheraintall is suf ficient to nil the reservoir twice a year, and the land to be brought under cultivation is practically limitless. This may reaa line a fairy tale, but it is every word true, and has been yenned time and again. CASA GBA2IDE RE8SHVOIR. The reiervoirof the Casa Grande Valley Canal company is the largest in the territory. T. a iirf Ace of lfiOO acres, with an aver age depth of 12 feet, and contains about eight thousand million gauons oi waicr. n ia.it ,rwl fifteen miles southwest of Florence. A 1-ivee of earth has been thrown up across a depression m the plain J4.imj ieei in lengtn, 125 feet in width at the bottom and 25 feet in width at top, 2 to 1 slope on each side, and an average height of 25 feet. The waste is regu lated by 3 cost iron pipes 3 feet in diameter, set in solid masonry, regulated by gates and tower, ims reservoir t-ii f i,wu, wiu iuv plies water for 6,000 acres. Meteorological Statistics. The signal service of the general govern ment maintained a station at Florence from 1874 to 12. The reports covering the period from J ii if. 1880, to April, 1882, gives the follow ing statistics, which may be taken as a safe guide to the prevailing temperature given during the series of six yeas: lgSO.

In a residence of sixteen years In Arizona the writer has only known two persons to be overcome by the heat, and they recovered. Their condition, however, was more the result of whisky than heat, i'he 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 temjierature to be ' fulls 80 degrees. At nearly all times there is a pleasant breeze; the nights are invariably cool in the summer, ana out-door lubor is performed without serious discomfort to either man or beast on the warmest da'S. Very seldom does the thermometer get be low the freezing point in winter, andin the gardens of Florence to-day are castor bean plants two years or more old, UNTOUCHED BY VBOST. 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 foot 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 came here years ago, exiiecting to live but a few weeks. Hut for all that, the wonderful Casa Grande valley is something better than a health resort. j Tl.nt. iwirtlftn of the firreat. Casa Grnnda Vill' l inj; nlonjr the Hue of the Southern ' Pacific railway in the vicinity of Casa Grande and Arizola is at present, and withgood reascn considered one ot tne most uesiranie portions of this magnificent Southern Arl amia. Great, clinTiires have been made in the apiearance of this part of the valley during the lost four yeurs. 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 wntnr avstpm there is nothimr like a suffi cient w;ater to irrigate this vast body of land THE CASA GRANDE VALLEY CANAL is fortv-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 l.ftwo acres, having storage capacity of eight billion gal lons, in the southeast corner of township 6, range 8. gives ample supply or water tne year round to all farmers located below It, but those above suiter by a shortage of Water during a few weeks in summer. It is proposed to remedy tnis Dy tne con struction of a huge reservoir at the Buttes, fifteen miles northeast of Florence. Com petent engineers hnve examined 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, od the 15th of December, A. D. 18, 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 landsonce 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 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, 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 ran the Government alone honorably redeem the broken pledges made by it to these people, and thus preserve from further want and degradation two of tbe 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 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 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 be will more rapidly advance in 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 j herds of our farmers and ranchmen tor 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. 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 Bouse of Representatives.
