Of tins present yi ar.
This wan tile statein. lit made today
by a member of a committee of citi
zens from tiie Highlands, who are
r.romoting tiie new line and which
they s.iy will positively be built.
A meeting of citizens of the High
lands Interested in the proposition has
been eallud for tomorrow night in the
office of Lloyd Hunsaeker, near Sec
end street and Gobi avenue. It is un
derstood that cither SI. P. Stamm or
some other interacted person will call
the meeting to older, after which the
proposition .vil i be open to one and
all for dls'u-s!oii.
"We don't want nny 'knockers'
present," said a member of the com
mittee today, "but everyone cine is.
welcome. Anyone who is opposed t-
fcuilding such a line might just as
Hell remain at home. We have walked
up and down the Highland hiila and
dales until we are tired of It and we
are going to co-operate and build a
Street car line. We have worked the
matter out. where we believe that
Without difficulty we can form a stock
company and operate such a lino
profitably and we are going to raise
the money and then demand a fran
chise from the city. We expect to
make the Highlands line a separate
cne from the. present traction com
pany and to charge a separate fare
vithout tran-fer. We intend to run
the line so as to cover the Highland?,
as far south as the Sunlit Fo yards
and into the business section of Al
buquerque. The terminal down town
will likely be at the ElkH' opera house,
but that is a matter to be determined
al the meeting tomorrow night or al
a subsequent meeting.
Small Amount I'roin I'jicli.
F.riefly, the plans of the Highland
er' are to ask every owner of a i0
foot lot, over which the line will pass,
to subscribe for which he will
receive non-assessable stock certifi
cates. Each owner of a 50-foot lot
On streets next adjoining the car track
will also be asked for 2... Those on
the third street back will be asked to

The iu":,".b s of the committee,
win. have . n at work on the pro
ject for several weeks, said that sev
eral prospective routes were being
considered, but the final route wouid
be determined at the meeting tonight
or soon tin -rcalter. unit work would
be heun at once .oliciting subscrib
ers to tile stuck, it is .-tiin.it' d that
120. oil can be raised within a short
sraee- of tim-:- and this will place the
line in operation and Lave a surplus.
"We do not promise that the line
will immediately pay dividends, bu'
we are confident Hint it will. We
will so lay th.' tracks that we can
carry practically all of the people of
the Highlands who want to come
down town l!i tin- evening to a pic
ture slrnv or lor any other purpose,
and we belu ve that the patronage
vl'l be mor. than we have figur. d
on, in pre j inns our plans. It is be
lieved that the entire line can be built
and cqu.ppid for about 1 10, win."
Members of the committee con
sulted with the manager of the local
electric light company this morning as
to motive power and were assured
that the local company could furnish
ell or the power needed. The terms
offered for a number of vear was ac
ceptable to the committee, and tip
members expressed themselves as
thoroughly satisfied that the project
would prove a great success.
A member of the committee said l'.e
believed the project could be put In
shapo to warrant un application for
a franchise within thirty days.
