"Ir U apparent tliut something must b
done tn iro iiie wntpr for the Indians. In
ordr to demonstrate curability to govern
new peoples we miut how a better record
lor those now in our care." Prof. F. H.
Rmell, in a U'oture in Washington. Dec.
Whoever controls a stream practically
controls the land it renders prod net ire. and
the private ownership of water apart from
land cannot prevail without causing endur
ing wrong. In arid states the onlyriuhtto
water which should he recognized isthatof
use. President Koosevelt in his message to
Undoubtedly the first work in irrigation
which the government should undertuke is
the construction of a dam on the- (iila River
ut an Carlos, in Arizona, because this im
provement would not only bring under cul
tivation a large area of arid land for the
use of whito settlers, but would also relieve
the urgent needs of thousands of friendly
Indians, who are now In a starving condi tion
because the water upon which they
have been dependent for centuries lias been
diverted by white settlers above them.
This improvement wculd be notonty a strik
ing object letson of the advantage of irriga
tion on a large scule, but also an act of
mercy and justice. (Los Angeles Times
Iditortnl, Feb. 11 1901.
After the first of January, 1902, the
undersigned withdraws from the edi
torial and business management of the
Flokkkl-b Tribune, having agreed to
deliver possession at that time toThos.
F. Weedin under certain conditions
Inch will doubtless be complied with.

and co other.
With this issue the Tribune enters
upon the eleventh year of its existence,
and there is some sadness in parting
with it and its readers on the anniver
sary. The paper has had its tips and
downs, ahcTm?y have -nade mistakes
"iieitner newspaper nor individual is
Infallible but no onecan justly accuse
it of lack of earnestness in its efforts
toadvonce the welfareof Florence and
Pinal county. For many years its
hobby has been water storage on the
Gila, and now that the object for which
it has labored is about to be accom
plished, it seems like breaking tender
ties for the Teibunb and its editor to
part l'.ut the work is done and it is
now up to Congress; nothing more
netd be said in newspaper columns.
The arguments have been made, and
tbey are unanswerable. From one end
of the United States to the other the
little movement that was started in
this office by Indian Agent J. Roe
Young and the editor of the Tribune
lias grown to enormous proportions,
until to-day it is generally recognized
as the foremost irrigation project in
the arid West. The Irrigation Con
gress and the Arizona Legislature, at
tha instance of the Tribune's editor,
both endorsed it. The secretary of the
Interior in his last report specifically
recommends the construction of the
San Carlos dam, and there is little
doubt that Congress will at the present
session make the necesiary appropria
tion. The lands under the proposed
canal are already withdrawn from
It is to be hoped our readers will
pardon the personal character of this
article; but it does not seem to bu out
of place in parting with them. It only
goes to show that even a modest little
country newspaper is not without in
fluence where it is published with a
definite object, systematically per
sisted in.
Let it not be understood that the
Tkibuse claims all the credit by any
means. There hare been others just as
earnest, but none more so, and with
them we only wish to be considered a
fellow-worker. As an individual, the
undersigned will coutiuue the work
by correspondence with Senators and
Representatives until the appropria
tion is made, and he urges others to do
the same. Nothing is more effective.
Keep everlastingly at it, even at the
risk of being considered a crank and a
bore-rwe hove bsen called both, and
even worse but did not quit for a
moment. And as for conceit, no man
ever accomplished anything who was
devoid of telf-rsteem, who did not be
lieve in himself snd in his power to do
things. There is such a thing as over
doing it, and our hope is that it has cot
hern tk'iie in this instance. But let
that pass the work shows for itself,
and when it is accomplished, as it is
certain to be, the consciousness of hav
ing performed a duty will be satisfac
tion enough. As the hero Schley said,
'There is glory enough for all . "
For the Fioreuce people tiie writer
has nothing but the kindliest feeling ;
bis home and interests are with thein,

there is ill-feeliti(f among us, let us
forget it, and strive together to upbuild
the town, which is destined to become
the most prosperous and populous city

day,"' Cuas. D. Kkppy.
In a letter received by the editor of
the Tribune this week from Hon.
Mark Smith, our delegate in Congress,
under date of Washington, December
10th, he writes:
"I am doing everything a man can possi
bly do. For one week I have been every
night from 7 o'clock until 11, meeting with
a self-constituted committee composed of
the Western Senators and one Kcpre&enta-
tive from each State and Territory, In an
effort to force on the Government some
appropriation for the irrigation of the arid
lands. My fight has been for a specific ap
propriation. The majority seem incliued to
! a bill general in its character. I think I
can safely say, however, that If any bill is
passed or any appropriation made, the very
first money will be applied to the San Carlos
dum. But this may be when you and I are
dead and happy."

English Club Woman's Story.
From the Buffalo Commercial.
In the Slate Federation of Woman's
Clubs at thiu morning's session, bin.
Hugh Reed Griffin of London was in
vited ;o address the convention. Mrs.
Griffin, whose husband is an American,
formed the first American woman's
club in London. The club has become
very popular, has attracted wide
spread attention in England and has
tb effect of establishing a better un
derstanding between English and
American women.
Mrs. Griffin told about the forma
tion of the club and its work. She
stated that there was some prejudice
in England kgainst the America's club I
woman, and that she, herself, shared
that prejudice to some degree.
"The American club woman is so
terribly busy that I often wonder, and
so do other people wonder, if she finds
any time at ail to spend at home," said
Mrs. Griffin
"I beard a story once
wnicti aptly illustrates tnisiauu in me
Americsn club woman. Three little
boys were together, and their childish
talk finally drifted to the question of
where they were born. One little boy
said :
" 'I know where I was born. I was
born at Ko. 33 Washington street, and
I know where the house is, too.'
"And one of the other iittie boys
said :
" 'I know where I was born, too. It
was at No. 50 Pennsylvania avenue,
and I can take yon right to the house.'
" 'The third little boy hesitated, and
then finally said :
" 'I don't know where I was born,
but I know when I was born. I know
there wasn't anybody home at the
time but me and grandma, 'cause moth
er was at the club . ' "
San Carlos Dam Will be Built.
From the Tucson Post.
Register Moors of the United States
land office in Tucson, this week received
notice from the commissioner of the
general land office to withdraw all sur
veyed lands from entry embraced in
the country on tha south side of the
Gila river from Dudleyville to Mari
copa extending almost to Picacho Peak.
This action on the part of the de
partment is explained in the letter. It
says that the government is taking
steps to build the great reservoir known
as the San Carlos dam, and the lands
are temporarily withdrawn pending
the completion of this government un
dertaking. The building of this reservoir will be
one of the greatest benefits this por
tion of Arizona has ever had. It will
bring an immense area of rich land
under cultivation, and open to pro
fitable settlement a valley which has
scarcely been developed at all, owing
to a scarcity of water. Tha action of
the department in withdrawing this
land from entry shows that the work
of bringing the project to a bead is be
ing successfully prosecuted.
A Phoenix couple were recently
married, and the bride invited an old
aunt to the wedding. The cards weri
swell affairs, and the corner bore the
inscription: "Children not expected."
After sennning it closely over her
spectacles the old lady exclaimed ;
"That's all right, but they'll have 'ein
just the r-ame. Safford Guardian.
Agent Elwood Hadley, in His Report to
the Secretary of the Interior, Says
their Condition is Deplorable. ' '"'
Agent Mudley of Sacaton, referring
to the condition of the Pinias, Ma'i
copas and Papagocs in his charge
says : '
"In my last report I expatiated on
the starving and helpless condition of
the Indium under my charge and the
necessity fur the building of a storage
reservoir by the government. Practi
cally the same conditions now exist,
and the experience of the past year has
continued me in uiy opinion and em
phasized the need of a reservoir.
"The department authorized the ex
penditure of $3,000 for seed wheat and
Darley, and' I accordingly purchased
220,000 pounds of wheat and 10,000
poundsol barley, which was issued for
seeding purposes during October, No
vember and December, 1900. This
seeded about 4,000 acres, and with
plenty of water would have yielded
4,000,000 pounds of wheat. There was
sufficient wuter in the early part of- the
season, but before the wheat matured
the water supply gave out, the wheat
shriveled up, and much of the grain
failed to mature at all. About 1,000,-
000 pounds of wheat were harvested,
of which, perhaps 30 per cent is good
and sound.
"After putting forth every possible
effort (such efforts as white men would
never make) to raise a crop and make
themselves belf-sustaining, these wor
thy Indians are again stranded on the
desert with scant provisions, sufficient
for only a few weeks' existence. While
the crop raised is nearly twice as large

wcv imu are pracuuaiiy exuaus'.eu .

lucicm uu water lur tueir crop ui curu,
beans, pumpkins, etc., which is usually
planted after the wheat is harvested.
The weather is dry and hot, with no
immediate prospect of rain. Within a
few moots the Indians will have to de
pend on the government for support.
'I can not say too much in praise of
these Indians, considering the trying
circumstauces nnder which they have
endeavored to support themselves.
Many have songqt work off the reserva
tion, but there has been little opportun
ity during the past year to secure out
