'ITH pleasure we present this volume dealing with
'the resources, various industries and institutions and
many points of interest in Arizona, the youngest State
in the Union. This hook also commemorates the ac-
tivities and achievements of those Arizonans who have
contributed to the development and are now furthering the growth
and progress of this great commonwealth. Owing to the book
being larger and more complete than was originally intended, pub-
lication has been delayed, but we feel that the delay is justified in
the improvement which has resulted. Even so, the book is not en-
tirely satisfactory, and in a short time a revised edition will follow.
There arc a number of citizens whose contributions to the upbuilding
of Arizona are such that their omission from the volume leaves it
incomplete. They will be given space in the new edition. We be-
lieve this second attempt will surpass any previous publication deal-
ing with Arizona, both in scope and method of treatment. Like the
present volume the next edition will be strictly a home production
issued from the job department of the Arizona Daily Star at Tucson.
We desire to extend thanks to those who have made this book a suc-
cess, by extending their financial support, suggestions and encourage-
ment.

IN ARIZONA



ARIZONA



Although the youngest state, Arizona is one of the largest and is
u'ithout doubt the richest in natural resources. Her history is most
interesting, and exemplifies the saying "Truth is stranger than fiction."
The story of the settlement of the territory, the gaining of statehood,
and the development of the marvelous industries and the many points
of interest are here briefly outlined.

IT WAS during the trying times of the Civil War, in 1863, that
President Lincoln approved the act establishing the Territory of
Arizona, and what had previously been the County of Arizona was
then formally separated from New Mexico. At the time of the or-
ganization of the Territory of Arizona the white population was
20,000. Provision had been made for changing the boundaries, and
by adding certain portions of it to Nevada in 1866 the Arizona of
today was outlined. John A. Gurley of Ohio was first appointed
governor, but as he died before assuming the office, John N. Goodwin
of Maine, who was appointed to take his place, was the first acting
Governor. Governor Goodwin, in company with a detachment of
cavalry, traveled westward from Santa Fe, and at Navajo Springs
hoisted the American flag and read President Lincoln's Proclamation
of Establishment. Another short stop having been made at what is
now Del Rio railway station, they then passed on to the new military
post at Whipple Barracks, and thence to Prescott, where in the winter
of 1864-1865 the first legislative session of Arizona was held in a log
hut especially erected, the first meeting having occurred October 4,
1864. In 1867 the capitol was removed to Tucson, then the most
important settlement in the Southwest, but after ten years was re-
turned to Prescott, where it remained until 1889, when the first Act
of the Legislature was to remove the capitol and the pending session
to Phoenix. There, prior to 1901, the year which saw the comple-
tion of the new capitol building, the sessions were held in the City
Hall. At the first session of the Legislature the Territory was di-
vided into four counties, Pima, Yuma, Mohave and Yavapai, named
for the friendly tribes of Indians. Maricopa, the fifth county, was
organized in 1871 out of Yavapai, while Greenlee, the fourteenth
and last organized, was formed from Graham.

known during the past two decades. General attention has been
more intensely directed toward it since its admission to the Union;
hut its own abundant natural resources it is which holds the atten-
tion of the world, no matter what may have attracted it thither. And
now, after years of struggle amidst the most discouraging circum-
stances, Arizonans are in possession of a State showing illimitable
promise for the future; a State that is really a wonderland and only
in its infancy. In extent, about 350 miles from New Mexico to
California, and about the same from Old Mexico to Utah, and having
an area of 113,000 square miles, Arizona ranks sixth in size among
the states of the Union, and equals in area England, Scotland and
Ireland combined.

Arizona has a diversity of altitudes, and, therefore, furnishes a
variety of climates. The elevations range from almost sea level at
Yuma to 13,000 feet upon the San Francisco mountains, and by
making suitable changes in altitude to fit the season it is possible to
enjoy perpetual spring. While there is, perhaps, no place that can
boast of a really perfect climate, the section which, like Arizona, can
show the fewest and mildest extremes approaches nearest to the ideal.
And this State, being exceptionally favored in its climatic conditions,
is beneficial to the majority of chronic diseases.

As a mineral producing State Arizona ranks first in the Union, and
its mining resources as a whole have been the means of attracting
vast amounts of capital for development purposes. In its other im-
portant industries, agriculture, horticulture, stock raising and dairy-
ing, its advantages are unsurpassed, yet despite its marvelous re-
sources, Arizona ranks forty-sixth in point of population in the Union,
having had, according to the census of 1910, about 205,000 inhab-
itants, the number being now estimated at close to 250,000. Though
it is a land of bright sunshine and bright prospects, and one of the
fastest growing communities in the United States, its great need is
people who can and will do things. And it is attracting them men
of every class of life the capitalist, the high salaried man and the
laborer. It had not been decreed that Arizona submit to the domi-
nation of one industry, but endowed by nature with manifold riches
in mineral form and agricultural possibilities that are rarely excelled,
the field is ample for capital and labor, and the demand for workers
in every occupation is great. She has, therefore, much to offer to the
newcomer.

In the production of copper Arizona leads the world, and no other
copper field has shown such heavy increase in production during the
past decade, or has brighter prospects for the future in the develop-
ment of the illimitable copper deposits not yet touched. So in this
field alone there is the constant inducement to men of ability and
means, men who can afford to increase the great producing power
of the State by the further development of this great resource, whose

coming of itself necessitates an increased demand for the salaried offi-
cial and the laboring man. Mining as an industry began more than
fifty years ago. At a number of points throughout the State, how-
ever, there are evidences of rude operations in mining by prehistoric
people, although no traces of smelting have been found, and had
the copper ores been reduced in those days the slags and possible rem-
nants of the furnaces could scarcely have escaped attention. The
first copper smelter in the State, built of adobe bricks, is said to have
