Next to Muricopn it is the mot important agricultural county in the Terri tory. It is traversed from east to west by the Southern Pacific railroad, and a branch of the great Santa Fe system is now ap proaching from the north. The objective point of this road is a connection with the Sonora road, of tho same system. The Southern Pacific is also building in this direction from Tempe. find It is confidently believed that work will not eoase until the Deer Creek coal fields are reached and con nection is made with another branch of 1 that road running from Bowie to Globe and now completed to Fort Thomas. Thus it will be seen that Pinal county is t he theater of railroad building at the pres ent time, and inside of a year Florence, the county seat, will be A RAILROAD CEKTXH. At present it contains a population of bout 15U0, but with the completion of these railroads and the SanCarlosreservoirno city in Arizona can approach it for natural advantafres. and a large increase in popula tion will follow. Florence is at an elevation of 1492 feet above sea level, situated near the Gll river, twenty-six miles northwest of the railroad station of Cttsa Grande, with vrhi'h it is connected by an elegantly -equipped daily stage lino. Going and com ing stages run by the old Casa Grande ruins, and passengers are allowed a short time to inspect them. There are many handsome private residence iri Florence, several brick stores, good hotel, aa excellent graded school employing four teachers, churches. secret societies, a Commercial Club, two uewspupers, and the handsomest court house in the Territory. Here is held the United States Court for the district composed of Gila, Grahnm and Pinal counties. The streets are lined with shade trees, which impart an air of com fort on the warmest days. PKODCCTS O? THE VALLEY. Unlike the Salt river, the waters of the Gila are fresh and pure; the soil contains no alkali, is a deep, rich gray ash, especial ly adupted to the growth of the prune, olive, almond, peach, fig, pear,' apricot 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 maimer. The grape does exceptionally well in this valley, aud wine and raisin culture is destin ed to become a prominent industry. Citrus fruits have been cultivated to a limited ex tent; 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 months earlier than Southern California, which gives fruit growers an appreciated advantage la Jamiary: 46.4 7 9 23 February 49.5 72 27 March 57.3 82 25 April 62.1 100 i The heat as represented in the above table during the months of June, July and August is nothing like as unbearable as in the Eastern States, and death from SUNSTROKE IS UNKNOWN. In fact, in a residence of twenty-one years in Arizona the writer has ouly known two persons to be overcome by the heat, and they recovered. 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 dejrees in St. Louis or New York, The Signal Service bureau has recognized this fact, and reports thedifferenoe between the apparent aud seusible temperature to be fully 30 degrees. At nearly all times 'there is a pleasuut breeze; the nights are iuvari ably cool in the summer, aud 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 ure castor beau plants two years or more old, UNTOUCHED BY FBOST. Orange and lomon trees require sligh protection 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 fact that for all pulmonary ait 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 some thing better than a health resort. That portion of the great Casa Grande valley lying along the line of 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 magniiieunt Southern Ari zona, threat changes have been made in the appearauce of this part of the valley during the last tea 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 suffi cient water to irrigate this vast body of land. THE CASA O BANDS VALLEY CANAL I the indefensible position of doing noth ing itself or allowing any oue else ta improve this great natural reservoir site. i 2. We firmly believe that tiie inter ests of humanity diutate that the Iu- iaus should be gathered on the reser vations, have luiids allotted to them in severalty, aud that they be furnished with fanning implements and an inex haustible supply of water for irrigation of their lauds, to the end that they may become self supporting. By this means will a home life be furnished for the Iudian and he will more rapidly advance in civilization as a coose queuce. He will abandon his nomadic ue; his children will oe kept at home and educated in neighborhood Bchools, instead of beini sent to large Indian schools at a distance where they are kept (as it would seem) for mere purposes of show. After being in structed in the arts ol civilization for a time they are returned to savagery, to become more unhappy and discon tented than if they had never received j the questionable advantages. We feel that the present policy of the Indian department is all vvront; in this regard. 3. The l ima and Marvopa Indian reservation contaius 350,000 acres of as fertile land as lies within the bound aries of Arizona, and is a, nirably adapted for homes for these people, as well 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. Kesolved, that the Secretary of the Territory be instructed to transmit a copy of the foregoing Memorial to our Delegate and Delegate-elect v Con gress, and also a copy each to the President of the Senate and Speaker of the House of Eepreaentatives.

A dam 200 feet in ruins there are thousands of acres covered with a heavy growth of mesquite timber yet -open to settlement. Thee are among the -choicest in the valley. Water in inexhausti ble quantity is found at a depth of from twenty to thirty feet; in fact, a riverseems to be flowing underneath, Here is a splen did opportunity to take up and improve land with a pumping system of irrigation, which is suid to be successful on small tracts. However, with the completion of the San Carlos 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 AX UNINHABITABLE DESEBT is in truth the most productive land on the globe, and that there is water in abundance to bring every foot of it undercultlvation, only waiting for the magic wand of capital to develop it. There is no water-storage scheme on the Paciilc coast that has one half the natural advantages and so f?w en glneering diificulties as the Jan Carlos reser voir. Here nature has built the abutments in ever-living rock, and all that Is left for man to do is to put In the headfate, the bluffs which form the gorge being only separated by a paltry 220 feet. A country Is drained through this narrow canyon 200 miles square, representing 40,000 square miles, or lnrger than Maine and Massachu setts combined. The rainfall Is sufficient to fill the reservoir twice a year, and the land to be brought under cultivation is practi cally limitless. This may read like a fairy tale, but is is every word true, and has been erifted time and again. CASA GBANDZ BSSEBVOIR. The reservoir of the Casa Grande Valley Canal company is the largest in the terri tory. It covers a surface of 1600 acres, with an average depth of 12 feet, and contains bout eight thousand million gallons of water. It is situated fifteen miles south west of Florence. A levee of eailh has been thrown up acrosi a depression in the plain ll.OOOfeet in length, 124 feet in width at the bottom and 21) foet in width at top, 2 to 1 slope on each side, and an average height of 25 feet. The waste is regulated by 3 cast iron pipes I fnet in diameter, set la solid masonry, regulated by gates and tower. This resaryoir cost $150,000, and supplies water for t.000 acres.

The report says: "In the event of the construc tion of this dam there will 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 the part of the Government.' A bill is now before Congress for the construction of the work, and there is little doubt of its passage when its merits become known. 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 iu PhoeDix, Arizona, on the 11th of December, A. D. 1806, unan imously adopted the following: Whereas, The Pima and Marioopa Indians, tribes numbering iu toe ar?re?ate tnti 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 the Gila river; and Wliereas. Through the loss of such waters the lands once cultivated by these tribes have lecome barren aud worthless, and the members of such tribes have become a charge on the Government, and forced by the loss of their helds Into lives of degrada tion and penury ; and Whereus, Such tribes have from the ear liest days been the friends aud allies of the white race; and W hereas, The people of the United States have pledged themselves by solemn treaty to protect such tribes iu their property and property rights; aud Whereas, The Government of the United States has and now is engaged in the ex penditure of hundreds of thousands of dol lars for the construction of works of irriga tion for the reclamation of lands beiongiug to other Indian tribes; therefore, be it He-solved, That this Congress do approve the proposed construction, under the plans of the U. S. Geological Survey, of the liuttes reservoir, in Piualcounty, Arizona, recently reported, to auin reclaim the lands of these tribes, believing that by so doing can the Government alone bouorabiy redeem the broken plodjres 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 race. Kesolved, That we approve the proposed construction of such reservoir not only as just and philanthropic, but as economical and good policy, as iu a comparatively sbor time the expense of maintaining such In dians as Govorumpnfceharges will far exceed the cost of the irrigation works required to make them a self-supporting and self-respecting community. How, therefore, your Memorialists, the Nineteenth Legislative Assembly of the Territory of Arizona, desire to go on record as earnestly endorsing the above recommendatious of the Sixth National Irrigation Congress for the following reasons: 1.- The reservoir site referred to having been withdrawn fron entry by Government authorities, cannot now be utilized by any private corporation, uud the Government therefore occupies siotjs in the matter of freight rates. It is understood that the resolution adopted by the Safford convention has been unanimously accepted by the business man of the valley, and, while the concessions offered by the rail roads are not satisfactory, their repre sentatives have shown a willingness to meet the committee and consider the matter, and we have reason to believe that an agreement will be reached which will prove of mutual benefit to both the people and the railroads. Pima Paragon. Senator Quay says that he is goirg to retire from active politics aud that he will not be a candidate for re-elec tion four years hence. Pofsibly, but aspirants for his seat are warned that four years are a long time. InsiEler Caught by Accldewt. Antonio Aznia arrived from Ger many at New York wearing a belt in which were concealed $17,000 worth of diamonds. He told n. customs officer that he had nothing dutiable.
