sent out from Eagle Springs to the rescue-
These troopers were ambushed en
route by 18 or 20 of the indians and
had a battle, but readied Grierson, pilot
ed by some of the Pueblo indians now
residing near Ysleta, and escorted the
general and his command back to Eagle
Springs. The indians followed the. sol
diers and killed the onail carriers almost
in sight of the camp.
Mr. Lewis had been a mail carrier and
stage driver in that region and went out
and recovered the lock to the mail bag
At the time of the killing he was con
ducting a store and says he could se 1

clerks trying t6 wait on the crowds and
even then the customers had to stand in
line and wait their turn. I called on
the furniture dealers in Los Aargeles
and they all had double their forct

so, I judged that they were doing three
or four times the business they had done

"The business men subscribed 80,000

they told me that they would get $1.25
back for every dollar invested in it, be
sides the great business boom that "had
resulted from the gathering- of people to
see the flying men. I was astounded to
see crowds on the Los Angeles streets
like they are during the spring and fall
shopping times in Chicago when State
street is crowded. Everyone In Los An
geles seemed to think It was a great
event and the business -men whom I talk
ed with felt mighty good over the re
sults. "The same thing can be done here. All
that is necessary for the business men
and hustler to get busy and get the avi
ators, then get the railroads to grant
liberal rates and advertise the meeting
widely through the southwest. It is -sure
to be a success if. this Is done."
