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.
PRICES or LASD.
Improved lands, with government title and
water right, can be bought for from $20 to
$50 per acre, according to location and im

In fact, in a residence of sixteen years in
Arizona the writer has only known two
nersons to be overcome bv the heat, and
they recovered. Their condition, however.
was more the result or whisKy than neat.
The air i. so drv here that a registered
temperature of 110 degrees is not as oppres

The Signal Service bureau has recognized
thi. fact, and reports the difference between
the apparent and sensible temperature to be

a pleasant breeze ; the nights are invariably
cool in the summer, and out-door labor is

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

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

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. I!y this means will a
; home life be furnished for the Indian
land he will more rapidly advance in
civilization as a consequence. He wiil
abandon his nomadic life; his ehiMrer
will be kept at home am! edui-tvted in
neighborhood schools, instead of beinu;
sent to large Jndian schools itl :i rtis
tance where they are kept (;is it wn'.it
seem) for mere pursose of
After being instructed in the urt.s of
civilization for a lime 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 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.
