A celebration worthy the name is
ptarmed by Tucson to commemorate the
opening of the West Coast of Mexico
railroad on May 5 and 6. For the enter
tainment of visitors and the celebration,
10,000 has been subscribed, it is re
ported, and every cent will be expended.
The Tucson chamber of commerce is
in charge of the celebration and invita
tions have been mailed to all promi
nent business and professional men iin
the territory and also to the governors
of the Mexican states of Sonora and
Sinaloa, who will be in attendance with
the members of their staffs. An effort
is also to be made to secure the pres

well as the mayors of all Arizona towns.
The West Coast of Mexico railway
extends from Xbgales, Arizona-Sonora,
to the city of Tepic, at which point the
lino leaves the coastal plain and passes
through tho Sierra Madre mountains to
Guadalajara in the state of Jalisco. Its
length is 925 miles.
In the 670 miles between Guaymas
and Tepic the line crosses 17 rivers: The
Taqui, Mayo, Fuerte, Ocoroni, Sinaloa,
Mocorito, Culiacan, San Lorenzo, Elota,

MOVING- A STATION

The Difficult Task of the
Santa Pe in Giving La.
Tuna a Depot.
Illustrative of the western spirit and
that of the Santa Fe railway, was the
recent moving, intact, of the two
story frame station building, formerly
located at Las Cruces, X. M.f to La Tuna,
N. M., a distance of 24 miles.
The two story section of the struc
ture, estimated weight 100,000 pounds,
was loaded on a 40-foot steel girder flat
car. It extended over either side of
the car a distance of seven feet and
stood 30 feet above the roadbed. It was
necessary to take down all switchstands,
"whistling posts and overhead wires en
route. It was also necessary to move
tha track two feet to permit the build
ing to pass the station at Mesilla Park.
The springs on the car, which car
ried the building, were blocked and
made as rigid as possible. The distance
of 24 miles was covered in six hours,
although nine miles was covered in one
The moving of the station building
was occasioned by the erection of a new
7000 structure at Las Cruces, and the
need of a larger building at La Tuna.

The suggestion of the citizens' com
mittee to the railroad engineers will
be that the present railroad bridge
across the Colorado river be abandoned
and a new centilever bridge be thrown
across the river from penitentiary hill
to the Indian school hill, giving the rail
road a high line over the government
levee on the Arizona side and through
the indlan reservation highlands on tho
This would remove the tracks from
the main part of the city and -would
give a wagon and passenger bridge
across the river for the use of the resi
dents on both sides of the Colorado.
The opening of the Yuma Indian reser
vation to settlement has made a free
bridge necessary and as the railroad
has been figuring on making a high line
of its road Into Yuma, it is thought that
a. satisfactory arrangement can be made
with the railroad by which the present
bridge is taken over by Yuma and the
centilever built upstream.
