In fact, in a residence of twenty-one years in ArUoua 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, The uir is so dry here that a registered temperature of 1!0 degrees is not as oppres sive as. tli-srees in St. Louis or Sew York. The riffual Service bureau has recoguized thib fact, aud reports theditfereuee between the apparent and sensible temperature to be fully 30 degrees. At neurly all times there s a pleasant breeze; the nights are iuvari- nbiy cool in the summer, and out-door labor j is performed w ithout serious discomfort to cither man or beast on the warmest days. Very ueldoni does the thermometer (ret be low the freezing point in winter, and in the ! gardens of Florence to-day are castor bean plants two years or more old. VNTOUCHED BY FHOST. Oranpe and lemon trees require slight protection during the winter for a year or 1 n o, tin; il the wood is sufficiently hardened While it is a popular thins: for one to say that he is "not here for his health," it is an undisputed fact that for all pulmonary uil- nie'its no climate on earth is eipiul to South ern Arizona, and there are numbers of active, industrious citizens, with bat one lui!jf, wao came here years asjo, expectiim to live but a few weeks. Iut for ail that the wonderful Casa Grande valley is some thing better than a healtli resort. That portion of the great Casa Grande valiy lying along the line of the Southern Pacitic railway in the vicinity of Casa Grande end Arizola' is at present, and with (rood reasun, considered one of the most desirable portions cf this magniticant Southern Ari zona, Great chances have been made ia the appearance of this part of the valley during the last ten years. It was about that long no that the Florence canal was completed raid the work of actual improvement begun. It is listless to deny that under our present w ater system there is nothing like a sufS cient w ater to irrijato this vast body of land. THE CASA GMANDK VALLEY CANAL is forty-three miles in lensth ond covers ICOeO acres of land, about 7,!j0 of which are nn.ierrtiltivation. It is so constructed that it cantnj easily enlarged and its rapocity in creased. A reservoir covering 1JW0 acres, having storage capacity of eight bililon gal lons, ia the southeast corner of township 6. range 9, gives ample supply of water the year round to all farmers located below it, but these above suffer by a shortage of wuter during a few weeks in summer. It is proiHised to remody this by the con struction of a huge reservoir near San Carlos which would strre 2S1.390 acre-feet of w ater, capable of irrigating UO.iMS acres of laud. All of this land would be in the vicinity of Florence. The estimated cost of the dam is$l.C3M28. This survey was made by order of Congress, for which $20,0U0 was appropriated. Mr. J. D. Schuyler, of Los Angeles, the noted irrigation engineer, fully verities Mr. Lippincott's report, ond strong ly urges ujmii Congress the duty of con structing the work. A dam 203 feet in height, which Jlr. Schuyler considers per fectly feasible, would store 5"jO,000 acre-feet of water and the reservoir would have a life of sixty-three years without dredging. The report says: 'ln the event of the construc tion of t his dam there w ill be built up in the valley of the Gila river, where a desert now exists, a community of fully 40.000 souls and the creation of many million dollars of tax able wealth without permanent outlay on i the part of the Government." A bill is now i before Congress for the construction of the work, ami there UUttieaoubtol its pawatse when iu merits become known. - - HOUSE MEMORIAL NO. 4. To the Senate and House of Representa tives cf the United States in Con gress Assembled. , your" Memorialists, the Nine teentli Legislative Assembly of the Territory of Arizona, respectfully r?p reheut that the National Irrigation Congress, held in Vhoeiiix, Arizona, oo the 11th of December, A. D. 18',Mi, unan imously adopted the following: WhcreaH, The Pima and J!arico)a Indians, triies numbering in the aztfresjate ton thotiKauil wouls, have been deprived of the waters used by them in irrigation before the advent of the whit race in America, throutrh t he appropriation of such wutra by setiiers ou tho headwaters of the Gilu river; aud Whereat. Throttirh the Vwaof such, waters the hiiidK once cultivated by tliene tribes huve become barren and worthless, and the nmmbers of Btieh tribes have become a charge on t'10 (iovorninent. and forced by the lot.it of their helds into lives of degrada tion and penury; and i liest dayri been the friends aud aides of the white race; and Yherean, '1 he people of the United Stata have pledged thinnelvea by solemn treaty to protect such tribes in their property and property rights; and Wht-rea, The (jovernuient of the United States hatt and now is entfiu-ed in thf? ex pendit tire of hundreds of thousands of dol lar ior the construction of works of ii ri-a-tion for the reclamation of lands belouyiiiff to other Indian trihes; thercdore, be it Kesolvea, laut this l-ouresH ilo approve the proposed eonstruction. under the plana ot t.re b. 6. treoi'j;:ieal Survey, of the liuttes reservoir, in t'maloounty, Arizona, recently riorted, to a:u reclaim the lands of thse tribe, bclicvbitf that by wo doing can the Coverninmit ulono honorably redeem the broken pledre made by it to these people, niid thus iresei-ve fru:n further want und (ioradatit)U two of the smrvivins; Indian tnia ot the Ameri'-an continent that have always been the constant friends of the white rate. Kesoived, That we approve tho proposed roJisti'iiot iftn of such reservoir not oniy as jut and philanthropic, but as economical and trood polkw, as in a comparatively short time the expense of ciaintuiniu tmeh in dmns rtiiGtivernnioiit charyt'W will far exceed the cot of the p'ris;atiou wors required to make them a weii-upportinyr and yelf-re-bpectintf community. New, therefore, your MemorialifctK, the Nineteenth Legislative Assembly of tho Territory of Arizona, desire to go on record as earnestly ecdorsing tiit- above recommendations of the Sixth National Irrigation Congress for. the following reasons: 1. The reservoir site referred to having been withdrawn fron entry by iovi?rnmnt authorities, cannot now !k utilized by any private corporation, uad the Goverument therefore occupies. the indefensible position of doing nolh- ng itself or allowing any one else to inpnrve this . great natural reservoir site. . I 2. We fivmly bulieve Hint the inter- I ests of humanity dictate that the In dians should be gathered on the reser vations, have lauds allotted to them iu severalty, and that they be furnished with fttirutnc' implements aud an inex haustible supply of water for irrigation of their lands, to the end that they may become self supporting. l!y this means will a home life be furnished for the Indian and he will more rapidly advance in civilization as a conse quence, lie will abandon his nomadic life; his children will be kept at home and educated in neighborhood Behools, instead of beine sent to large Indian schools at a distance where thev are kept (as it would seem) for mere purposes of show. After, being in structed in the urts of civilization for a time they are returned to savajery, to become more unhappy and discon tented than if they had never received the questionable advantages. We feel that the present policy of the Indian department is all wrong rn this regard 3. The Pima and Maricopa Indian reservation contains ,"50,000 acces of as fertile land as lies within the bound aries of Arizona, and is admirably adapted mr Homes for these people, as weil as the wandering Papagoes, who are now compelled to prey upon the herds of our farmers and ranchmen for subsistence. 4. The construction of a storage reservoir 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 foreffoing Memorial to our Delegate and Delegate-elect in Con press, and al?o a eopy each to the President of the Semita and Speaker of the House of Kepreaentatives. The world's demand for copper, brought about by the unprecedented advance in electrical inventions, has become So great that statisticians are cow trying to figure out where the sup ply is to come from. Manufacturers are seeking it in all parts of the world, and it is without question that even with all the new fields being developed that a doubt exists if the supply will be equal to the demand in the next ten years. Arizona is fast creeping to the top of the ladder as the greatest copper producing district in the United States, and if capitalists aud manufac turers would look this way they could tied a field which would eusily fill all the demands made by the consumers cf copper. Cochise Review. Perry Williams, who is the father of Maricopa, speaking of the growth of that place to a reporter of the Phoe nix Republican, buys that Maricopa has fortunately never experienced a boom, bat has always had a good, steady prowth.
