About the Ruins of La G-ran Quivira, Dry Farmer Has
Gome Into His Own Upon the Rich Soils of That
Section Some History About These Ancient
Ruins, Just Dedicated as National Park
by the President.
"Wlllard, N. M.. Jan. 27. La Gran
Quivira, one of the famous "Seven Cities
of Cibela," has been declared a national
monument by president Taft. The citi
zens of Willard, the closest important
town to these historical ruins, have
worked, in conjunction with archaeologi
cal societies, for several years with this
object in view, and are now congratulat
ing themselves -on the success of their
La Gran Quivira, destined to live in
history as one of the most romantic
spots in New Mexico, is about 20 miles
south of "Willard, on the Mesa de los
Humanes. Many tourists reach it from
this point, where an automobile line
has been established for their conveni
ence. It can be reached from here by
automobile in an hour's time.
Indlans Made the Road.
The road from "Willard is the same
that was used for untold ages by the
Pueblo indians when going to and from
the pueblos of the Manzano mountains,
which lie west of this town, to those
of the Mesa- de los Humanes, which rise
precipitously from the prairie five miles
south from here. This same road, which
rises gradually through a broad and
gently sloping canyon to the summit of
the mesa, was traveled, time and again,
by their implacable foes, the Apaches,
whfcn raidine- the Pueblo towns. This
road is destined to become an historical
landmark, as it is so closely interwoven
with the traditions of the rise and fall
of La Gran Quivira. Over .it passed the
superbly equipped legions of Coronado,
composed of the most daring and chival
rous blood of Span.
Along ths road is the survey or wnat

"Willard and the country about it, hav

late Col. Frost, editor of the New Mex
ican, and he prophesied, time and again,
in the columns of his paper, -that it
would be built some day, as the indus
trial advance in the mountain regions
made it imperatively necessary to con
nect Denver and El Paso by the shortest
possible route. The completion of this

There Is a county seat fight on at
present between Willard and Estancia,
the latter town being 12 miles farther
up the valley from here. This war has
been waged for several years, and still
goes merrily on. It has been fought
with varying success before the legis

of the two towns have locked horns on

La Gran Quivira followed the custom
of their people and placed the site on
an eminence which rises abruptly from
the floor of the mesa. From this ele

which are close by. Off in the distance ,
may be seen the Sierra Blanca, the El j

The Ancient Ruins.
The ruins denote that La Gran Qui
vira was the largest and most powerful
pueblo east of the Rio Grande in its
day. They are yet in a fair state of
preservation, notwithstanding the van
dalism they have been subjected to In
the last 300 years. In the immediate
vicinity of La Gran Quivira aw the
ruins of numerous other pueblos, and
the historian Cozzens, who visited' them
in 1859, estimated their combined nonu-

The best preserved buildings are those
of the church and presbytery. The
church interior is 34 by 132. Its walls
are six feet thick, and are In a fair
state of preservation. The walls of the
monastery are still well preserved and

that the monastery was 13,377 square
feet in dimensions. Historians say, as
the annals of the Catholic church give
no name to this church and monastery
the pueblo must have been destroyed
before they were entirely completed.
Close by the large church are the ruins
of a smaller one, which was dedicated
to bt John. The large scale upon which
the monastery was built indicates that
it was the intention of the Franciscan
monks, who were in charge of Spain's
religious work in this "section at that
? K. dar to make La Gran Quivira
the headquarters of the church east of
the Rio Grande.
The pueblo and all its buildings

Dry Farmer In Evidence.
Now the dry farmer, who is omni
present in the vicinity of "Willard, has
pushed his way from the plains up
through the broad de Leon canyon, over
the mesa, and now he Is occupying the
land which was tilled by the Pueblos
for centuries before the Spaniard' came.
In order to live, to raise stock, to de
velop successfully as an agriculturist,
he must have water, and the stockman,
who is gradually giving way to the on
ward march of the farmer, is wondering
if the latter will solve the problem of
water in the Gran Quivira country. This

However that may result, the progress

The idea that the Apaches besieged
it in large numbers, cut off its water

by the fact that its Inhabitants were
not massacred, but were able to march

Easterners "With Money Are
Eiling on Lands in Sul
Douglas, Ariz., Jan. 27. Without any
blare of trumpets, the homestead fever
has caught the people of the east and
middle west, and the result seems to
have swept over Cochise county " like
a storm unpredicted. Cochise county
has some of the best land within the
gift of the government in the United
States, land that on the word of many
who have investigated the -"Oil and rain
fall of "Ventura county, Cal., is declared
to be even better than that in the now
famous bean-growing country of the
Golden Gate state.
The agriculture stations and the agri
cultural university of Arizona have
been too busy collecting data and ex
perimenting with the soil of the terri
tory to take up the work of advertis
ing. The scientists wished first to
convince themselves, before inviting the
man of the east. But the man back
east has not waited for the invitation,
as is proved by the Inrush of settlers
into the Sulphur Springs valley during
the past month.
Many Entries Made.
A newly appointed United States
commissioner is located at Courtland,
In the valley, and during the past
month almost 150 entries have been I
made at the Phoenix land office for
homesteads between Courtland or
Pearce and Douglas. Most of the set
tlers come- in from Kansas, Oklahoma,
Texas. Georgia and Pennss'lvania. The
settlers from Oklahoma and Pennsyl
vania are families with money, and it
Is now assured that gas engines -and
centrifugal pumps will be Installed to
irrigate the land.
About 50 entries have been made dur
ing the past few.weeks through the
Bisbee land office and some through the
local office. It is estimated that about
200 entries have been made during the
past six woeks. All of the settlers de
clare that the land in the adjacent
valleys is different from their ideas of
the so-called "arid lands" of Arizona.
They had not expected to find the val
leys covered with grass, and are sur
prised to find that water can be se
cured at such shallow depths. In the
vicinity of WIllcox many of those who
six months ago filed on the land, are
now bringing in their farming Imple
ments, stock and families, and though
this movement will follow In due course
in the Sulphur Springs valley between
Courtland and Douglas, this movement
has been in a way anticipated by the
new settlers, who are bringing their
families wT?h them. "
