We had an editorial in these columns
a few day ago, referring to the fact
that a proposition la now under con
aideratlon by the Commercial club, from
certain parties in tbe east, tor ths estab
lishment of an extensive woolen factory
at this place. Referring ta thi fact, the
Laa Vega Optic takes occasion to say
with IU usual friendly spirit toward all
Albunusrau enUruries. that if bbv
body lu th east establish that sort of
a factory at Albjquerqo bs will havs to
get moat of hla wool from Las Vegas.
Whil not admitting this fact, ws would
imply inquire of our neighbor, what dif
fsrsuoe does it maks whether the factory
gats its wool from Las Vegas or Los
Luna, oo long 'as it gst it and run
auooeeatullv. I not ths result to the
territory just the samel Dcaeat it keep
our money at home, furnish employment
to our uwn people, and constantly add to
the wealth ot our territory! 11 ut, for
tunately, it would net be necessary tor
sueh a factory to aead abroad for Its raw
material, not even to call upon oar
