l : . . - THE CASA GRANDE VALLEY. Information for Thoso SeekinQ Homes In the Garden Spot of the West. Pinal county was organized in 1815 from portions of Pima. Maricopa and Yavapui utilities, and cnntulns nnareatif V-M square miles, or 3,435,520 acres, oue-thlrd of wliii'h eould be made iToduotive by a systematic storage of the surplas water now running to waste. Next to Maricopa it is the most Important agricultural county in the Terri tory. It is traversed fnm east t west by the Southern Pacific railroad, and a branch of the great Santa Fe system is now ai firourdiing from tlte nirttu The .whjwtive point of thin voad 4 a conaoc'.ion with the Souora road, of the same system. The Southern Pacific is .also bnilding Sn this direction from Tmnpe, and it is confidently tielieved that work will not cease until the Deer Creek cum! tit Ids are reached and con nection is made with another branch rif 1 that road running from rfowie to Globe and now completed to Kort Thomas. Thus it w ill be seen that Pinal esmnry is the theater of railroad building at the pres ent time, and inside of a year FUreeee, the .county seat, will be A BAII.HOAD CS3TKE. At present it contains a population of bout but with the completion of these railroads and the Sun Carles reservoir no city in Arirona can approach It for natural advantages, and a large increase in popula tion w ill follow. Florence is at an elevation of 1492 feet above sea level, skuated near the Gila river, twenty-six miles northwest uf the railroad station of Casa Grande, with whih it is connected by an elegantly equipied d-ejly stage line.

P HQ DUCTS Of THK VALLEY. Unlike the Salt river, the waters of the jila are fresh and pure; the soil contains no alkali, is a deep, rich gray ash, especial ly adapted to the growth of the prune, olive, lmond, iara. fig, pear, apricot and fruits of all kinds, which pay largely on the invest- meat. Jt is-ulso the natural home of alfalfa. ! which rrows in the most prolific manner, j The (ri Ape dovs exceptionally well hi this valley, and 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 lu 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 U from six weeks to two months earlier than Southern California, which gives fruit growers an .appreciated advantage iu THE KAHLT MARKETS. The absence of fogs and nightly dews is a or m stable obstacle to the destructive and tiiisiglrtly scale-bug, and the fruits of the valley are all bright and clean. All the agri cultural products of temperate and semi tropio zones are easily grown here, the k long season giving a auccenslon of crops that double or treble the productive value f the land. I'BICKB OF LAND. Improved lands, with government title and water right, can be bought for from (JO to f 50 per acre, according to location and im provements. 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 twenty to thirty feet; in faet, a river seems to be flowing underneath. Here is a splen did opportunity to take up and Improve j exist, a community of fully 40,01)0 souls and land with a pumping system of Irrigation.

There is no water-storage scheme on the Pacific coast that has one half the natural advantages and so few en gineering difficulties as t he San Carlos reser yolr. Here nature has built the abutments In ever-living rock, and all that is left for man to do is to put in the headgate, the bluffs which form the gorge being only separated by a paltry Z!0 feet. A country is drained through this narrow canyon 200 miles square, representing 40,000 square miles, or larger 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, bnt is is every word true, and has been erified time and again. CASA OBASDS KK8SBVOIH. 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 about eight thousand million gallons of water. It Is situated fifteen miles south west of Florence. A levee of earth has been thrown up across a depression in the plain 14,000 feet in length, 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 regulated by t cast iron ples I feet in diameter, set in solid masonry, regulated by gates and tower. This reservoir cost J150.000, and supplies water for 6.000 acres. Meteorological Statisties. The signal service of the general govern ment maintained a station at Florence from 1X74 to 1&82. The reports covering the period from July. 1880, to April, 1882, gives the fol lowing statistics, which may be taken as a safe guide to the prevailing temperature given during the series of six years: 1880.

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 b ins along the line of the Southern Paeitic railway in the vicinity of Casa Grande and Arizola in at present, and with good reason, considered one of t he most desirable portions of this magniticaut Southern Ari zona, Great changes have been made in the appearance of this part of the valley during the last ten years. It was about that long: ago that the Florence canal was completed and the work of actual improvement be;;un. It is useleKs to deny that under our present water system there if nothing like a suffi cient water to irrigate this vast body of land. THE CASA GBA5DK VALLEY CANAL is forty-three miles In length and covers tSO.OWl acres of land, about 7,000 of which are undercultivatiou. It is so constructed that it can be easily enlarged and its capacity in creased. A reservoir covering 1,600 acres, having storage capacity of eight billion gal- j Ions, in the southeast corner of township 6, f rane 0, gives ample supply of water the year round to all farmers located below it, : but those above suffer by a shortage of I water during a few weeks in summer. It is proposed to remedy this by 'l,he con struction of a huge reservoir naar San Carlos, which would strre 281,S'.I6 icre-fcet of water, capable of irrigating 140f6iS acres of land. Alt of this land would be in the vicinity of Florence. The estimated cost of the dura is $1, IBS, to5. This suney was made by order of Congress, for which S-20.0W) was appropriated. Mr. J. l. Schuyler, of Los Aneeles. the noted irrieationeuKineer, full verifies Mr. Lipplncott's report, and strong- ly urges upon Congress the duty of con - ! structing the work. A dam 200 feet in I height, which Mr. Schuyler considers per , fectly feasible, would store 550.000 acre-feet ! of water and the reservoir would have a life j of sixty-three years without dredging. The , report says: "Iu the event of the coustnic tiouof this dam there will be built up in the j valley of the Gila river where a desert now work, and there is little doubt of its passa when it. merits become known. HOUSE MEMORIAL NO. 4. To tiie 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, Ari.uDa, on the 11th of December, A. U. lSSti, unan imously adopted the following : Whereas, The Pima and Maricopa Indians, tribes utiiuljeriug in the ajr?regute 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 Sy sottlera on the headwaters of the Gila river; and Whereas, Through the lossof such waters the lauds once cultivated by these tribes have become barren and worthless, and the members of such tribes have become a charge on thet Government, and forced by the lossof their lields into lives of degrada tion and penury; and Whereas, Such tribes have from the ear liest days been the friends and allies of the w liite race; and Yn hereas, Tho 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 ex penditure of hundreds of thousandsof dol lars for the construction of works of irriga tion 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 Huttes reservoir, in Pinalcounty, Arizona, recently reported, to again reclaim the lands of these tribes, believing that by so doing can the 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 race. Resolved, That we approve the proposed construction of such reservoir not only as just and philanthropic, but as economical and good policy, us iu a comparatively shor. time the expense of maintaining such In dians as Governnientchargcswill 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 od record as earnestly endorsing the above recommendalious 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, 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 humauity dictate that the In dians should be gatlie'rec' on the reser vations, have lands allotted to thein in severally, and that they be furnished with farming implements and an inex haustible supply of water for irrigation of their lauds, to the end that they may become self supporting. l!y this means will a home life be furnished for the Indian und he will more rapidly advance in civilization as a conse- j quenee. He will abandon his nomadic ' life; his children will be kept at home and educated in neighborhood schools, instead of beins; sent to large Indian schools at a distance where they are kept (as it would seem) for mere purposes ol Bhovv. Alter being in structed in the arts of civilization for a time they are returned to savagery, 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 wroutr io this regard. d. Ihe I'niia and Maricopa Indian reservation ooutaius 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 l'apagoes, 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 ineut. otters 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 foi ejjoing Memorial to our Delegate and Delegate-elect iu Con press, and also a copy each to the President of the Senate and Speaker of the House of Kepreaentatives.
