N. Captain 8. Jl. Iay. the enterprising
energetic superintendent of the
-.anta k'v Water A, Improvement corn,
paey. and an active member of the
tauta t board of trade, returned
hume yesterday from an extended trip
through California, whither ha went
as tl8 duly accredited representante
of the local board of trade to carelully
Iti ventilate the beet sugar Industry in
the great state named, with a view to
the gsnersl introduction of tht same
important Industry, not only In the
region directly tributary to this city,
but throughout ew Mexico.
Of course a An ilaiean scribe
promptly called upon the genial gentle
man, and, in spite of the fact that he
was immersed m disponing of accurnu
lated business, ha talked freely and
lucldl) concerning the results of Ms
trip, remarking in general terms that
his mission bad beca unexpectedly
fruitful In the wny of gaining usctul
Information, shedding light on the beet
sugar IndUHtry, uud that lie returned
more than ever persuaded that the
develndincut of the industry Is destined
to become a most substantial and im
portant factor in promoting the future
prosperity of New Mexico.
" hile away I made the rounds of
all the places in California whera the
beet sugar Industry has attained promi
nence," said Captain l)av, "visiting Sau
.Francisco, Los Angles, Chino, Los
Alaraitos, Salinas, Ventura, aud San
Diego, and 1 confess that I was amazed
at tUe evidences I witnessed of the
L-4t growth of the beet sugar industry
l alifornia during the past few years.
I 'found that everyone eiignged
in this business on the coant,
trom the farmer to the factory,
was prospering In an uncommon degree,
and all seemed satlslled that the cul
ture of sugar beets aud the manufac
ture of the product Into sugar were
likely to prove a source of as much
wealth to the stale as its world
renowned gold mines. Indeed, some
sanguine ones placed the beet sugar
IndUHtry ahead of gold mining in
wealth producing possibilities.
' I had the pleasure of meeting Claus
Kpreeklea, the famous sugar king, at
;an Francisco; the Oxnards, at Chino,
and Mr. Clark, at Los Alamitos.
These peuUemeu are at present the
principal promoters of the sugar in
dustry In California. They treated
me with much courtesy and cheerfully
placed me In possession of such in
formation as 1 aoueht. I learned that
Mr. fcpreckles. in addition to his other
large factories in the state, is putting
up at Salinas the largest sugar iiihiiu
facturlng plant In the world, depend
ing excluuivelr upon sugar beet for
Ins raw niHteriHl. 1 also found that all
the other manufacturers of sugar from
beets Hi the state were arranging to
multiply the capacity of the plant as
fast as possible ana that several new
and extensive plants were projecU-d,"
continued Captain Day.
"As 1 have already hinted. I am now
7fre than ever convinced of the wis
iifij and practicability of the tramo
introduction of the ted sugar
ludustry la the land of sunshine known
to the vori. I as New Mexico," added
the thoughtful and well informed
gentlemen, "ilia soli and climatic
conditions here are unquestionably
mors favorable to the production of
high grade sugar bet ta thau those of
California. Ue can raise more and
higher grade sugar beets to the acre
than they cun iu California. This is
clearlv proved by the experimentally
demonstrated facta that the average
yield of sugar beets per acre in New
Mexico Is tons, wnile the yield in
California Is reported at ten tons; that
the average percentage of sachsrine
matter In the beets produced In New
Mexico Is IS, while the sugar bents
grown in California only average 14','
per cent In sacharine matter.
"Such facts apeak louder than any
words 1 could commsnd In lavor of
'' territory a ñusr producing
region. I am more thn perms'led,''
continued the captain, "that New Mex
ico Is Ideally adspted to the vulture and
manufacture of sugar beets. 1 believe
that enough beets can be produced in
this territory to support at Ipast twelve
sugar factories, and, In addition to the
other considerations 1 have presented,
the fact that we have plenty of cheap
labor would assure profitable returns
from all of them. Santa Ke is pecu
liarly well situated for one of the
factories. V are so Iwated that we
would command the crops of two sea
sons, one from the valleys south and
the other from this valley and the Ks
pauola and other valleys to the north
of us. Then we have two railroads,
connecting us directly with the north
and the south, aud a plentiful supply of
pure soft water. We should exert our
utmost endeavors to Indue capital to
utilize these splendid and exceptional
opportunities as soon as possible.

Lf NPON, March 1. Tha opponent
of vaccination throughout tho country
are satisfied ou the whole with the
government measure amending the
vacclnatiou acts that have team drafted
by the lit. Hon. Henry Chaplin, pres
ident t the local government board.
Although they had hoped that the
government would be torced by public
uptalon to abolish compulsory vaccina
tion, yet they admit that hair a loaf is
belter than no bread and that the
movement they advocate will eve it
ually be successful. Mr. Chapliu's
bill propexes an extensión of the age
within which vaccination should be
required to six months, thecontlnuance
of the system of gratuitous vaccina
tion, permission to make a declaration
upen oath of conscientious objection,
while power is given to all pareuls to
require the use of calf lymph. The
duty of providing free vaccination is
also transferred from the poor law to
the sanitary authorities.
