THE CRAZY QUILT.
The Orion Era, of the 19th inst,,
Js doing the. crazy quilt business
not only in its make-up and gener
al groggy appearance, but in its
assertions and prognostications.
Its fantastic shapes and colors are
specific in nothing but inconsist
ences and are clear in everything
but facts. What the writer in the
Orion Era means by beating about
the bush in pursuit of some one
idea or thought, to sustain himself
and his paper, as the organ of the
''Herald" Mormon church, is be
yond comprehension. What is this
legal luminary, that only pants to
get before a full bench of the su
preme court of the United States
' to ventilate his great legal power,
trying to get through himself?
Herald Mormons are members
of the self-styled Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter Day Saints, who
ited polvgamy as part of their
Ipursuance thereof are
rigst the ignorant of
and lying to the people
abroad in the recital of the condi
tion of the saints here.
Herald Mormons are those who
are governed by, and rely upon the
false and iniquitous teachings of
the arrogant twelve apostles and of
the multitudinous bishops who
represent the polygamous church.
Herald Mormons are those who
will be duped by the scoundrels
who claim to be especially desig
nated, by the King of Heaven, to
receive his revelations concerning
the spiritual and temporal things
of this world.
. Herald Mormons are all such
people as the editor of the Orion
Era, who will deny that they are
speaking for the gulled followers of
the eminent frauds, or the priests
who gulled them ; who falsely claim
independence of the church and
speak solely their own sentiments.

Brigham Young tree is growing
."hollow at the butt" and must go
to decay ; the world cannot afford
to nurish it longer. Its worthless
ness is so fully exposed that it
must soon pass- away and- die the
death of all frauds.
The Daily Times., it recent ad
ditipn to the journalistic world,

OYER THE ATLANTIC & PACIFIC.

Albuquerque folks continue to
rely on a special providence to
make them appear unto others as
they want to appear unto them
selves. Tom. Hughes, of the Journal,
besides being an active worker
among the Dashaways, has just"
,got religion," and is now bleating
of "whitened sepulchres," and sich.
The European hotel catches all
the late arrivals the result of its
splendid location and excellent
care of guests.
Everitt is leading the trade in

George Lail, the ex-railroad con
tractor, has taken a contract to fill
the county of Bernalillo, and all
the inhabitants thereof, with home
brewed. The way his mill is now
running, we guess he'll fetch it.
Dixon, Albright (of the Demo
crat) and Tom. Hughes, journalis
tic triplets of Albuquerque, are all
mad because President Cleveland
don't love them.
Zeiger's new brick, on the old
Metropolitan corner, is going to be
like the first beau of a sixteen year
old just a little too lovely.
The little, town on the Atlantic &
Pacific, that has seen many changes
in fortune since it came into ex
istence a few years ago, is once
more poking its nose into the af-
fairs of trade, and is trying to get
a whiff of the future current of j
commerce.' Mal-adventures have
macle her nervous, and "easy, good
lord, my wife is-afraid of thunder,"
is still her motto.
However, Coolidge gives prom
ise of -prominence ; new locations
are being made by settlers in the
county that will draw their sup
plies from its trade, and the rail
road company keeps quite a strong
force at this point. It is the break
fast and supper station for all pas
senger trains, and the great hall
where meals are served is fitted up
with most exquisit good taste, and
the growing popularity of the
route is due, in a great measure, to
the admirable administration at all
the company's eating station's.
Who is the directing genius that
fills this most important office,
provides so sumptuoush7 for the
palates and the necessities of the
wayfarer? It is not Pache, the
Pacific pioneer wonder, nor Del
monico, of world-wide fame; not
Martinez, or the Maison Doree
nor hints from grand old Sam.
Ward; these bon vivants and
champions of the royal cuisine
have all passed the azure portals
away in the "ewigkeit," where it is
hoped they are feasting at the
Master's table, partaking their
manna untainted and unpoluted by
mortal hands. "Tis none of these,
but of their peer in every require
ment of the situation, Miss E. S.
Fletcher, and to her is gratefully
awarded this well deserved tribute
by all whom she serves so well.
Has a boom, one that has come to
sta3r. It is only necessary to view
the town from the train to get at
this tact. New buildings of the
most substantial character are in
progress, or have just been com
pleted, old ones are being refitted
and put in good order, the main
street is filled with people intent, to
all appearances, on business or
labor of some kind, vast coal trains
are running daily with the product
of her mines, and the expressive
countenances of her trades people
indicate a satisfactory business.

the Navajo nation. It is th& start

for the Navajo Indian agency, at
old For Defiance, and the camps
of several well-to-do st.ockmen in

passengers in transit is the univer
sal presence of the Indians with
their squaws, babies and ponies;
for tramps, the saloon; and for
the tired traveler from the moun
tains, that it is a railroad station.
Two hundred and thirteen miles
west from Albuquerque, in Apache
countv, Arizona, is a station of
some considerable importance. It
is the railroad supply point for a
large extent of country to the north
and south. In the north rich
ranges extend as far as the Moqui
reservation; to the south, the
main road for transportation of
merchandise leads to St. J ohns, the
county seat of Apache county ; to
Springerville. and all their depen
dencies not less than eight thous
and people, receive their letters and
newspapers by the tri-weekly line
that takes the United States mail
from this place.
Navajo has one mercantile es
tablishment, which carries a good
stock of goods and is sustained by
the liberal custom of travelers and
settlers in the district. Mr. Lewis
Lynch, the proprietor, has built for
the comfort of himself and several
members of his family a. comfort
able dwelling; erected all neces
sary buildings, stables, corral, etc.,
and is prepared to take care of
such persons whose business may
require them to tarry for the time.
Mr. Lynch is ably assisted by his
brother, Hugh, and together they
deserve the patronage and thanks
of the traveling public.

THE ATLANTIC AND PACIFIC RAILROAD COMPANY.
The Land Grant of this Company, in alternate
sections extends entirely across the Territories of
New Mexico and Arizona, between the 34th and
36th degrees of north latitude. It is 650 miles long
and 80 miles wide and includes some of the best
grazing lands of both Territories. In the valleys
are many desirable tracts of agricultural land, sus
ceptible of irrigation. A sufficiency of water has
been found wherever cattle and sheep have been
grazed, and large herds have been grazed in the
country ever since the coming of the Mexicans.
Wells have been sunk and good water has been
A stream of tunning water, the San Jose, rises
near the summit of the Sicrre Madre, and runs 75
miles eastward to the Rio Puerco, and the compa
ny's road follows the whole length of its valley.
1 here are numerous fine valleys opening into the
valley of the San Jose, flanked by grassy and woo
ded hills, upon which there is an open growth of
small cedar and pinon. There is an ci nsivebelt
of good pine timber on the mountains, near the
railroad, and good springs are found on both slopes
oftheSierrc Madre. There is a large coal field
west of Fort Wingate which has been fully ex
plored, and which will afford labor for a large pop
ulation, there are also coal deposits on the eastern
slope of the Sierra Madre. Many varieties of buil
ding stone are found in great abundance along the
line of the road.
In Arizona the crazing areas are supplied wtih
I good water, and the United States Surveyors, who
I maaet surveys ot tne country, say they
are as good, if nobbetter, than those of Wyoming

the slopes of the San Francisco mountains.
On these mountains there is an extensive timber
belt, diversified by beautiful valleys and parks,
with good water and wonderful canons throuhg
which the road passes. In fact, the whole of the
country traversed by the road is very picturesque
and beautiful, and many towns are .being built
along its route.
The Valley of the Rio Grande, at Albuquerqe
is5,ooo feet above the sea, and the passes of the
Sierra Madre and the San Francisco mountains, in
Arizona, have elevations of 7,300, witha depres
sion at Winsjow, on the Little Colorado, where
the altitude is 5,000 feet ; the climate is mild and
saiubrous. Cattle and sheep graze throughout
the year and do not need to be sheltered or grain
fed during the winter. The nights are cool during
The Company is now prepared to make sales

cultural lands in tracts of forty acres or more.
The belt of the Atlantic & Pacific Railroad
Land Grant includes the only available grazing
land in the country south ofthe Missouri River
