WHILE BILLIONS OF GALLONS TO WASTE.. RUN .What Recent Government Investigations Disclose in Regard to Irrigation Possibilities In Arizona. Good Indians and Industrious White Men Who Are Practically Destitute for Lack of Water. An Exceptionally Favorable Opportunity 1 to Inaugurate the Much-talked-of System of Federal Irri gation.

THE CASA GRANDE VALLEY. Information for Those Seeking Homes In the Garden Spot of the West. Piualconnty was organized In 1875 from portions of Piiua. Maricopa and Yavanui counties, and cotttuins an area of 5,3fifc square miles, or B.t&i.&'jO acres, one-tlui-u ot wlucii oouid be made productive by a systematic storage t f the surplus water now running to tfuste. ISext to Maricopa it is the most im- fortant agricult ural county in the Territory, t it traversed from east to west by the Southern Pacific railroad, and a branch of the great Santa re 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 Pncino is also building in this direction from Tempe.nnd it is confidently believed that work wiil 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 aud now complet ed to Fort Thomas. Thus it will be seen that Pinal county i. the theater of railroad building at the pres ent time, and inside of a year Florence, the county seat, will be A RAILROAD CEUtEB. 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 iu popula tion willfoliow. Floreuce is at an elevation of 1553 feet above sea level, situated near the Gilu river, tweuty-six miles northwest of the railroad station of Casa Grande, with which it is connected by an elegantly equipped daily stage line. Going anu coming stages run by the old Casa Grande ruins, and passengers are allowed a short time to in spect them. There are many handsome pri vate residence, in Florence, several brick stores, good hotel, an excellent graded school employing four teachers, churches, secret societies a Commercial Club, a uews- Eaper (the only one in the county), and the andsomest 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. PRODUCTS Or THE V ALLEY. Unlike the Salt river, the waters of the 'ilia are fresh and pure; the soil contains no jlkali, is a deep, rkrh gray ash, especially adupted to the growth of the prune, olive, almond, peach, fig, pear, apricat 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 doe. exceptionally well in this valley, and wine aud raisin culture Is destin ed toDecome a prominent industry. Citrus fruits have been cultivated to a limited extent ; thero 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 week, to two months earlierthan SouthernCalifor niu, which gives fruit grower an appreciat ed advantage in THE EARLY MARKETS. The absence of fog. and nightly dew. i. a formidable obstacle to the destructive and unsightly Kale-bug. and the fruits of the valley are all bright and clean. All the agri cultural product, of temperate and semi tropic cones are easily grown here, the long seasons giving a succession of crop, that double or treble the productive value of the land.

There is no water-stomge 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 nut in thft htoiuliTnti th hltiff K-hifh form the gorge being only separated by a paltry ; if)n .-. i - ! i 4.1 u t. : . : W.V irvsa n vttunu j iatiifaiuuu turuugu una narrow canyon 2UU miles square, representing 40,000 square miles, or larger than Maine and MassachuHettscombined.

While it is a uoDiilar thinff for one to hrv that he is "not here for Lis 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 came 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. That portion of the great Casa Grande vlle "b inc alons thaliue fr the Southern Pacific railway In the vicinity of Casa Grande and Arizola is at present, and with good reason considered one of the most desirable portions of this niagnilieent Southern Ari zona. Great changes have been made in the appearance of this part of the valley durimr the lust four yeurs. It was about that Ions as?o that the Florence canal waa completed and tho work of actual improvement begun. It is useless to deny that under our present water system there is nothing like a suffi cient wuter to irrigate this vast body of land THE CASA GBANDK VALLEY CANAL is forty-three miles in length and eover HO.OOU acres of laud, about 7.OU0 of which are under cultivation. It is so constructed that it can be easily enlarged and its capacity in creased. A reservoir eoverlnjr 1,000 acres, having Btorafre capacity of eight billion rat Ions, in the southeast corner of township o, 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 during a few weeks lu summer. It is proposed to remedy this by the con struction of a huire reservoir at the Bnttes, fifteen mile, northeast of Florence. Com petent engineers have 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, oo the 15th of December, . A. D. 189G, unanimously adopted the following: Whereas, The Pima and Maricopa Indian, 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 water, by settler, on the headwater, of theGila river1; and Wherea.. Through the-Ioss of such water, the landsoi.ee cultivated by these tribes have become barren and worthless, and the mem ber, of such tribes have become a charge on the Government, and forced by the loss of their fields into live, of degradation and penury ; aud Whereas, Such tribe, have from the ear liest day. been the friends and allies ot the white race; and Whereas, The people of the United State, hove pledged themselves by solemn treaty to protect such tribes in their, property and property rights; and Whereas, The Government of the United State, ha. and now is engaged In t he expend! ture of hundreds of thousand, of dollar, for the construction of work, of irrigation for the reclamation of lauds belonging to other Indian tribe.; therefore, be it Besolved. That thi. Congress do approve the proposed construction, under the plan, of the V. S. Geological Survey, of the Butte, reservoir, lu Pinal county, Arizona, recently reported, to again reclaim the lands of these tribe, believing that by so dome can the j 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 the constant friends of the white i rsim l 1 j Resolved, That we approve the proposed . - construction of such reservoir not only as just and philanthropic, but as economical i and good policy, as in a comparatively short time the expense of maintaining such lit 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 MHmo-valis'K, toe Nineteenth fjr's'atWe Assembly of the Territory of ArH, desire to ro on record us 'jjrnsl : above recomme rljiM-'t: of th" xt h ! National Irrigra'ion (Vng-rvss f- r th j following1 reasons- 1. The reservoir site referred t- having" been withdrawn from entry by Government authorities, cannot now be utilized by any private corporation, and tho Government therefore occupies the indefensible position of lining noth- " improve tills great natural rw.Si'rvnir site. 2. We firmly btlieve tbnt the inter ests of fanmanity cik'tati- thai the In dians shnnld 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 mny bei-crne self- I supporting.

We feel that the present polii-v of the Indian department is all wr jne B 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, t.nd 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 farmer, 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. 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 Representatives.
