Charges Dona Ana With Bad
Faith In Road
Wants Government to "Withdraw Water Rights From Large UracU of Valley
Land and Give the Water to the Mesa Land by a Highliae CanaL
Vado. N. M, Nov. 19, 191J.
Editor El Paso Herald;
How Las Cruces and the Mesilla val
ley have lost the Borderland route
your Las Cruces correspondent, on
page S. of The Herald, dated Novem
ber 18, gives the sequel to what has
been prophesied as the direct result
of the failure of Dona Ana county to
keep faith with El Paso county in
the solemn agreement made several
years ago that if the latter county
would construct a good macadam road
to the state line from EI Paso, the for
mer county would build to Las Cruces
along the Camino real to ultimately
onnect El Paso with Yellowstone Na
tional park, in western Wyoming and
Any one who has kept tab on Dona
Ana county's good roads policy of
bnildtng a mile out of Las Cruces in
ail -directions and then in removing
and rebuilding bridges and roads lead
ing to Las Cruces cannot but see
plainly why El Paso county should pull
for the Borderland route east of the
Organ and Franklin mountains. It is
the old story that "honesty is th"e best
Had Dona Ana county begun at An
thony and surveyed a straight line
along the right of way of the A. T. &
s F railway to Rincon and thence
north, either in the valley of the Rio
Grande or along the railroad to the
county line, and built from Anthony
north as fast as funds could be se
cured, as agreed in the compact with
El Paso, El Paso never would have
had any thought of taking the Bor
derland route east of the mountains.
When I made a successful effort to
change the survey of the Camino real
from the foothills to the route along
the railroad and saved the county and
state $20,000 in construction and many
times more in maintenance, my plan
to keep to the straight line was de
feated by first making an acute angle
to pass through the college grounds v
ana uas unices and Dona Ana, thus
adding to the distance of the Camino
real. My age and feeble health forced
me to withdraw from active work In
pushing or, as the Fibab club calls it,
boosting the Camino real, and I have
from my home at Vado in the center
of the Mesilla valley and from the
hospital, where I was treated in Cali
fornia, been watching the progress of
the policies of failure to carry out
the original plans of constructing the
Camino real through the state and
have been asking by what authority
has the one mill tax collected from all
the taxable property of the state for
5 years or over, been diverted from the
state and interstate highway?
Will some one who has audited the
one mill tax give us in the columns
of The El Paso Herald, New Mexico's
widest circulated paper, the exact
figures of what has become of all this

The new board appointed by the gov
ernor has began its work by first
building two bridges that will not be
needed after 1914, as we have no river
to cross after that date, as no water
will pass over the Bngle dam and all
surface and underflow will be pumped
on to higher levels below the dam, and
the first road to be built is to lead
west side farmers and merchants
from La Mesa and San Miguel to
Mesquite .elation, where thousands of
acres belonging to corporations and
speculators are being held without
cultivation, to be sold to incoming
farmers at from 100 percent to 1000
percent advance over cost price.
It will surprise any man to go over
the records and see how rapidly the

If I should stop at this juncture I
would be called a "knocker" and other
worse names. My object is not simply
to point out an error and then leave
it, but the only object in this dis
agreeable task is to suggest a remedy
of the evils referred to.
When president Taft was in El Paso,
he is reported to have said he never
would approve another reclamation
project to cover private lands. I want
to go a step farther and suggest a
remedy that can be accomplished un
der the Elephant Butte dam- even now
and this is my plan: Cancel all con
tracts to furnish water where over
160 acres is covered and divert the
'water to the government lands east
and south of the Organ and Franklin
mountains by taking the main canal
through the ten mile gap east of Vado
and reduce the farm unit to ten acres:
give every man or woman ten acres of
land under such regulations as the
secretary of the interior shall desig
nate and let the settler pay for the
water in ten annual instalments, just
as is now proposed. This mesa ex
tends down to Port Bliss and is as fine
land north of the Texas line and east
to the Sacramento mountains as the
mesa south of the Texas line and there
is more government land 200 feet be
low the dam at Engle. with plenty of
fall to cover it by gravity.
You may cry 'injustice'' to these
speculators, who put their money in
these lands expecting the government
to furnish water, but these men have
violated the object and purposes of
the act to furnish cheap homes to the
homeless poor and they have no more
claims on the government to protect
their interests than has the thief who
steals from the helpless direct.
Let every scheme of road and bridge
stop and let Dona Ana county redeem
the high line canal, where now local
ed by the reclamation service engineer.
