. During all this excitement about
the speculations of the money
changers of Wall Street, and the
runs that are being made on the
banks in the east, it is some con
solation to Quay county and Tu
cumcari to know that our banks are
alright, with plenty of money to
cover reserves and that they are
doing business at the old stand
every day and every hour, as though
nothing had happened. Of course
the atmosphere is clearing up con
siderably, but the scare is going
to last for several days yet, but it
does not affect materially the situ
ation in business circles hero.
' There is an excursion in today
of homeseekers from the North, in
fact all the way from Chicago
Southwest through Kansas. The
end of the going trip is Tucumcari,
and we should show them every
thing we can while they are in the
city. The excursion will start on
the return trip Sunday, giving
them nearly two days in this city.
They are going to want to find out
something about this country while
they are here, and every business
man should lend whatever assist
ance and give whatever information
he can during their stay.
EL PASO'S TRADE
Reached Tucumcari According
to Appointment Thursday
Night. Met Depot by
Thursday night according to an
nouncement, El Paso's annual
trade excursion reached this city,
and marched, led by Concha's
famous Mexican band, to the skat
ing .rink where an informal recep
tion was held in their honor. A
number of interesting addresses
were made by members of the ex
cursion and Tucumcari business
people, and the occasion was a
very pleasant one for everybody.
The excursion was composed of
the very men who have built the
best town in the great Southwest.
El Paso is growing so big that her
business interests are compelling
the city's representative men to or
ganize and unitedly reach out for
business in all her adjacent terri
tory. They have started out this
time to get acquainted with all the
business people living on all the
railroads running into their South
western metropolis. The primary
object seems to be to enable them
to correctly advertise the resources
of the entire Southwest, and to show
homeseekers opportunities waiting
here for them. El Paso claims all
New Mexico, Western Texas, all
of Arizona and about half of Old
Mexico in her trade zone, and now
comes to Tucumcari to ask us to
enter her partnership and invites us
to help her boost everything that
will redound to the permanent good
of a common cause. We promise
them most faithfully that we will
"jin" in and help play the hand.
The party, while here at night, saw
the exhibit of agricultural products
at this olliceand were assured that
Quay county is the banner farming
belt of New Mexico. They were a
unit that such stuff never grew in
any country but this, without irri
gation. They left according to
schedule, at twelve o'clock, ex
pressing themselves well pleased
with their visit. For Tucumcari,
oh behalf of her boosters, this
paper feels justified in saying:
"Here's to El Paso and her busi
ness men; gateway of two nations,
"gitters" of tin."
The M. 13. Goldenberg Co. is
building a warehouse south of the
store on Center street.
Side walks are building every
where the last few days and the
improvement is noticeable.
Harry Grubbs has invested in
Cimarron realestate and will open
a business there as soon as he can
make suitable preparations.
E. H. Fullwood of San Jon, was
in the city yesterday, soliciting
funds to aid in the erection of a
school house in his home district.
The Rock Island excursion
brought in many homeseekers to
day and they are generally well
pleased with this section of the
The water works system is get
ting busy this week laying the
mains. Main, Center and Second
streets are ditched and nearly ready

Several wagon loads of broom
corn was unloaded here this week
in a storage room at the wool
scouring plant and will be put on
the market a little later.
We are informed that storage
room is being provided at the
wool scouring plant for cotton that
farmers desire ginned at this place.

time they get ready.
