LAS VEGAS AND ITS FUTURE.
The city of Las Vegas Is now admitted to be ths buslne3 and commercial center of the territory, having a
population of S.OOJ and is the largest city In Xew Mexico and Arizona; beautifully located at the bane of the
snowy ranee and In the valley of the Gallinasilvcr. It is thecenter of thj wldeststock range In the world
is division headquarters aud base of supplies for the entire Santa Fe 6 stem in Sew 3Iexico; the base of
supplies of the mines of New Mexico; a city In which the freight aud txpress builness Is larger than any
otlier west of Topeka, excepting Denver, Col., and Wichita, Kus., but not excepting Pueblo and Trinidad,
Col.; the Junction of the A. T. and S. F. and N. 31., railroads; objective points of the Texas & Midland build
ing from Galvestlon, Texas, the Denver &ew Orleans R. R., and the Kiowa branch of the Southern
Kansas It. K.; the Chicago & Hock Island from Taos Fass to El Paso, Texas, and the D. & R. G. R. It, from
Dora down the Pecos Valley 10 Laredo, Texas; initial point of the Las Vegas & dulf R. It.; has tie preserv
ing works, gas works, founderies. planing and flouring mills, street railways, and telephone service,
broad avenuss, six dally and weekly newspapers, three banks, parks, churches, college, seminary, con
ent. academy, public schools, magnificent business structures, and the finest opera house west of Kansas
City, excepting Denver; has the largest wholesale houses west cf Chicago, not excepting Kansas City(
carrying stocks of $30,000,the largest wool depot of the west, shipping ove.'3,0t.0,U pounds annually; plenty
of lime and brown sandstone, "the finest in the world," as stattd by Prof. Hayden, U.S. geologist,- In his
report for 1SC9, is near the city limits; has 20 saw mills tributary, supplying this territory and Arizona with
ties and lumber; coal, both authraclte and bituminous. In abundance and building matarlal of all kinds Is
cheap, taxes low and there Is no more orderly town in the wesi which Inn such a wide awake population.
It has S20J,000 Invested in water works; Its Hot Springs are the most fashionable pleasure resort in the
wot; Its climate Is unsurpassed.
The land on w hich this addition is located ad j olcs the original town limits of Las Vegas, which was laid
out in 1S:5. and was one of the original alotmeuts to the llaca family as grantees, in the same year as the
aj ing out or Las Vegas, and has remained the property of said family until the last few months, v. hen It
was purchased by the present owners. The Las Vet-as grant was confirmed by act of congress June 2J,
l;6i, asd the title Is perfect.
We copy the following from the local press of the city:
The editor or the Xews was yesterday shown over the Porter & 311113 addition to Las Vegas, located
about four blocks north of the court houje and plHza. on both ildcs or the Hot Springs boulivird. which
is nearing completion. The boulevard, running through this addition, will be tiie handsomest drive In this
or any other city. It will be ICO feet wide, and the lots fronting uion It are laid off in 60 feet fronts and
from 19; to2 feet deep, making them the handsomest residence io'ua In the city. Outside the boulevard
and New Mex'co avenue the lots are rront by 25x13) feet to JSxli feet in size. As an Investment, no bet
ter opening was ever presented to the public, as the managers of the addition have fully realized the fact
that quick sales and small profits Is the rule that wins In business. Las .Vegas J.'effs, Juno 3.
An Ontlc reporter drove out this morning to the Porter &. Mills addition to this city, and though he had
been over the ground frequently before, had never looked at it In the llht of city low. There Is no use
dens lug that It Is one of the handsomest pieces of ground in New Mexico, or any where else, as far as that
is concerned. The great body of It lies as level as a floor, while the remainder of It swells up gradually
from the Hot Springs road towards the west, forming a beautiful slope, where Uie houses will command
an exquisite view of the river valley. No such opportunity for Investment has heretofore been offered our
people. The lots are large, ranging from 2SI feet deep and 90 wide to 173 feet deep and 23 wide. They are
situated on both sides of the water mains, while all the eastern half Is under the acquia. Besides, there U
no richer dirt on the face of the earth. Thus ths purchasers or lot will ha ve both water and soil, and can
not only beauttry thelrplaces with grass and trees, but they can raise 11 the rrult and vegetables which
any ramily can possibly consume. The distance ot the rarthest lots Is leas than f or a mile from the court
houe, and there ldlttle doubt that the project recently contemplated of running street cars to the springs
v II' ultimately and soon be put into act ual operation. Then, bt of all, there Is no shadow of a doubt as
to title. All thefe things establish the statement that no such opportunity for Investment has ever been
offered the people of Las Vegas Dally Optic, June 3.
