PAGE SIX. TIIITRRDAV, AUGUST 1, 1007. W MEXICO S SEEN BY A TEXAN View of Sunshine State Alan Who Observes Everything. by It's a soo'l thing occasionally to know hat other ie.ilu think of you, lii'tu-e tln following iirticle uti "The Panhitmlle ami New Mexico," from the Cucro Weekly Star, published nt Cuoro, Texas, written by A. S. Crisp, editor of that paper, who recently paid this territory u visit, la of mark ed interest. Mr. Crisp is a mem ber of the .tate legislature of Texas and one of her best newspaper men: Now Mexico. In a recent Issue the Star publish er promised further mention of a trip to New Mexico. We went up vii Kort Worth and through the great Panhandle country, daylight catching us at Childress.. This is a division point on the Forth Worth and Den ver and quite an important little city. The country is rapidly opening up in farms, as is the whole section to Amarillo. Home of this land Is black rrairie, other a rich red soli and some is sandy, but all seemingly good cot ton land and Is a demonstarated suc cess with small grain. Crowing fruit trees looked very thrifty on all lands also. For some distance before Amarillo is reachpd the altitude Is so great that cotton growing Is not attempted. In nuch countries as Oklahoma or Ar kansas just us far north, and further, cotton grows to perfection, showing that it is not a matter of latitude, but of altitude as the nights get too cold for the plant. While the lands are new and rich for the most part In that section, yet we have a great advantage of them in the regularity and amount of rainfall and we be lieve this Is the easier country to make a living In save such classes as want to speculate in the values of real eftate. 11k" ranliandlc. But It must be understood that this great elevation precluding cotton cul ture onvers inly q small portion of the Panhandle. A herd of buffalo at the Goodnight ranch Is one of the natural objects of more than passing Interest that may be seen from the train, while another novel sight for folks from our part of the state is the number of great steam plows with which ttiey break a large num ber of furroughs at one passage of the traction endue. Except a little timber skirting a few streams there is little or no wood 1n the Panhandle, coal being the uni versal fuel In this fast growing sec tion. Uetween Amarillo and Chnn ning. some fifty or sixty miles, the country is very broken, and that ad jacent to the railroad at least Is tot ally unfit for farming. Beyond Channlng It levels off Into A good stock country and continues through most of New Mexico till Trinidad, Colo., is reached, which Is fourteen miles into the Centennial fate and as far north as our Journey carried us. Just this aide of the New Mexico line at Texllne the soil Is thinner than further down Into the Panhandle. Railroads Ieal Railroads as usual are taking the lead in the development of this great Panhandle section and will In time make a regular gridiron of It, there being under construction now, tend ing to its further opening up sev eral Important lines and connections. Amarillo Is quite a railroad center and has something like ten thousand Inhabitants. Much wholesaling and quite a lot of manufacturing la done there. In the upper Panhandle country the railroad runs for many miles along the beds of the Red River and the Canadian river in which there is verv little water but great wide stretches of sandy channel, with lit tle or no banks In most places. The scenic beauty and the fertility of the Panhandle are great attractions In Its behalf and when the rainfall gets more reliable its agricultural possi bilities will be well nigh limitless. While Childress is far Into the Panhandle from Fort Worth It still requires almost the entire day to reach Texline, as you get breakfast at Childress and It Is about supper time when the New Mexico border is reached. Stock raising and mining seem to be the sole occupation of that portion of New Mexico traversed by the Den--er route and mining with some Irri gated agriculture Is the support of that section of Colorado around Trinidad. Mining Industry. Great numbers of mining camps surround Trinidad for miles In .each direction. The Irrigated gardens de rive their water from a stream called Purgatory river, but dry farming Is carcely attempted. Trinidad Is a ftplendid little city of some ten thous and or more inhabitants. That section of New Mexico on the Panta Fe and contiguous to Trinidad is also considerably Interested In mmlng. At the Baton mountains a -onslderahle tunnel carries the track over and for many miles southward the country rises to a great elevation and Is very mountainous and broken the railway having to pick Its way through as best It can. Until Olorie Ih passed (the scene of the Civil war battle) the country seems entirely devoted to sheep and goats with no agricultural possibilities. The valley of the Bio Grande is now soon encountered and Mexicans and Indians have for centuries led ditches from Its banks to produce crops of forage and other vegetation which would be Impossible without auch mechanical application of mois ture. The PhH1ok. It might be noted that from where the Santa Fe strikes the Bto Grande above Albuquerque It keeps within sight of the stream for most of sev eral hundred miles distance to El Paso. For some miles before Albuquer que Is reached Indian villages, some of them hundreds of years old are encountered, and come of them have us much as a thousand Inhabitants. They seem to be Industrious. Irrigate their little farms and hive a few m k. cut their alfalfa with reapers and drive good horses and mules. Hut they live in little mud bouses (adobe) Because, of living in these little little towns these Indians are called Pueblo (Spanish word for town). They are all Catholic In religion from the occupancy of the country l the .Spanish In the early days and ench village has Its French priest. They are monogamists and live In simple, upright domestic relations, no the knees si that they can conven sant with their habits. I'ncrgctic Indians. They nlso have far more energy than the average paleface ascribes to the re, man In general, and make excellent section hands along the Panta Fe railway. But they will not work except In groups and whenever one quits under a real or supposed grievance they nil lay down their shovels. In clress It Is sometimes difficult to tell the sexes as they all have their shawls or blankets and the women wear white moccasins and ieggins to the knees so that they can conceti lently get about through the brush and briars of the couilry. They are nil great walkers, neither men or women thinking anything of pitching out for a walk of twenty or thirty miles to the city. They have none r.f the feirs that bother white people, as women or men will lay down on the nul l side to sleep andi rest wherever fatiene or darkness overtakes them. But the government throws about these In dians the same protection it does everywhere .e in a very severe penalty for selling them liquor In any form. (Junrrli-s of Stone. Another feature of this part of New Mexico which should be spoken of Is the vast quarries of due build ing material, white and red sand stone which Is exhibited by the cut ting of the railway track through great stretches of hills through ns tine building materials as man ever reclaimed from the bosom of the earth. The same quality of stone (red) Is shown to magnificent advan tage In some of the line buildings of Albuquerque. Albuquerque. Our pen stopped at Albuquerque in the former mention of our trip to the northwest. In its commercial and manufacturing aspects as well as a health resort, Albuquerque is the metropolis of both. New Mexico and Arizona, having u population of about twenty thousand and being a sort or middle ground between Chi cago and Los Angeles, where ends of division and great railway shops inane u tne nome and headquarters or Hundreds or prosperous railroad folks. 1 nisi was its chief start toward the important euy it 13 today, and when to this it has been made a great wool market and one of the big lumber points of the west its financial and industrial supremacy was secure. Albuquerque lies in the valley of the Bio Grande as It divides in twain the territory and the river is a much more pretentious stream here than where the Santa Fe first strikes It in Its southern course. The town lies at the foot of a success of great hills "mesa," or table land, which over look it from an eminence of some hundred feet, and from this great elevation the city water supply is ob tained in wells and stored In an im mense earthen reservoir which gives all the pressure desired In the water works for tire or the ordinary use of water. In llio Foothills. This elevation Is really the foot hills of mountains which Ho twelve or fifteen miles beyond, but which look to the naked eye in that clear atmosphere to be only a few hun dred yards distant. Through the valley In which the city Is situated, as well as up and down the river a great deal of irrigation Is carried on. ditches being led about with swift flowing streams rushing boldly nbout In all directions to finally find their way back to the river. Alfalfa Is far and uwny the prin cipal crop, except an occasional good patch of oats and the market gar dens in the outskirts of the city which seem to be in a highly flour ishing conditions. Otherwise agricul ture about the environs of Albuquer que seem to be strictly an amateur pastime. The fact that the city lies so close to the river and because of the shal low depth to water on the river's level and its consequent nearness to the surface, causes all f'Srms of tree life to flourish in the highest degree. Its streets being lined with large and beautiful cotton woods, silver maple una oilier rorest trees that an Immense growth In Just years. Beautiful Orchard. Apples, pears, peaches and attain a few- other fruit trees attain tine size and look splendidly, but owing to mild winter and late frost they nro bearing no fruit this season. The magnificent sidewalk trees, the beautiful homes and yards and the large electric car lines, and com manding business buildings assure the stranger at once that he Is within the gates of a city which has the right to herald Its Importance and boast of its achievements. Albuquerque has attained to a postoftlce of first class with $4 0,000 postal receipts, having long en loved the carriers. Long straight streets with miles and miles of the most substantial concrete paving, as well as the viaduct which takes vou over vast acres of railroad switches with cars as thick as thev can stand thereon, readily strengthen your Im pressions of its claim to cltyhood. laimlter ami Sheep. Mining in this Immediate section Is followed In a desultory sort of way. but it Is railroading, sheep and lumber that do the business. Ex cepting Montana, no state equals New Mexico In sheep raising, while train loads of great pine trees brought in dally from splendid forests nearby keep perhaps a thousand men ns busy ns bees. Many of these trees measure more than three feet In diameter ami saw out the most beautiful planks and timbers of different kinds. In the saw mill proper an engine and boiler with over six hundred horse power (drive wheel twenty feet In diameter and four feet wide) gives an Idea of the power required. Belt saws and moving machinery deftly handle and switch the logs anil planks and do the work of the place :.s smoothly as if human hands had performed It all. I'ifTerent widths, lengths and grades are swiftly Hur ried wherever desired and refuse Is taken by conveyors to the furnaces and the saw dust from the numerous aws s sucked up 111 long and im mense blow pipe and carried to the different engines of the plant and to the electric plant, besides enough more to run several other engines Is blown into an Immense furnace built for the purpose and burned to pre vent In needless accumulating Great. LiiiiiIht Mill. Parries in position to know in formed us that the yard of this mill had constantly stacked more 'ban u million dollars worth of limber. All over this yard ate trestle ways as high as the first siory of the mill so that the lumber can be more easily and readily handled and so that mud in bad weather cannot in ter, fere. When the i.igs an first 'irought to the mill they are thrown Into an artificial lake supplied from the Itio Grande Irrigation ditches and here they are permitted to Mioroughly soak, to ease the woik of the saws. W!i! iv there Is no time f ir the green or wet lumber to season In a natural wy there are great steam furnaces, where It Is artificially dried as de sired. Rut the larger numbers of hands of the mill company are employed In its door and box factory. Here every device Is nt hnnd to make n perfect door ntnl they turn out some beauties. Boxes for fruit and all stamped by a machine with the; names of cus tomer, his goods, etc. Many of these boxes go to Europe nnd we noticed some marked for I)allas. San Antonio Mid other domestic points. These boxes, doors nnd other products of the mill are made nnd forwarded In train lots. I In ml ruc Buildings. The concrete building block has taken a firm hold in Albuquerque and there are many beautiful houses of the most approved architecture constructed from this handy nnd popular material. Concrete exteriors ruch ns used In the Alvarado, the great railway hotel extending several blocks, is aNo much In evidence. Two of the handsome buildings of the place are the Commercial club and the Elks' hall, the former built In 1XM ami the latter later at n cost of jso.min to the "Antlers." Every facility for receptions. Information, etc.. Is kept In the Commercial club, while the Elks have a large and mag nificent lodge room for themselves, with lodge rooms for other orders. banquet hall nnd skating rink which they rent. They also have .1 splendid opera house for which their geographical position attracts many of the best at tractions of the American stage. This building is immense in size and beau tifully finished ami furnished. ue of these buildings Is constructed of native red sand stone and the other of brown pressed bricks and both are models of architecture nnd the build ers' skill. Banks nro Solid. While In Albuquerque something snould lie said r the great strength of Its hanks, one of which has two million, eight hundred thousand dol lars deposits, with another one and a half millions, with other lesser, out flourishing financial Institutions.

New Mexico as well as Texas has been changing some of her laws, so the saloons open only the back doors on Sunday, Gambling was formerly licensed by the state at JITiO per table. This has been repealed and no more such permits will be Issued. Those in force expire with this year and the new statute will be effective Imposing a fine of several hundred dollars nnd six months In the peni tentiary for shuffling paste boards. Ilncatlonnl I ncllltlcs. Albuquerque bis n number of colleges and universities, not the least Interesting of her schools being a government institution for Indians where more than Ave hundred boys and girls nre taught saddlery, car pentry, domestic arts, etc., In addi tion to a liberal ncademlc course. In the summer the boys go to Colorado state from the school to assist In gathering the crops from her irrigat ed lands. lVnving Albuquerque the Valley of the Rio Grande furnishes but one place In consequence till El Paso is reached, nnd that Is Las Cruces, where Irrigation is extensively prac ticed. It seemed to have been a long time since It rained In the ter ritory and where the Rio Grande was not turned over the land It pre sented a very parched appearance. El Paso Is a splendid bustling city, pos sible 50 per cent larger than Albu querque. Here for many miles the Bio Grande river Is led out over a pleasant valley making all nature smile and producing about all of verdure or vegetation In that region. Where these ditches cense white drifting sand almpst as barren as a nock surfeits the view for scores of miles, until It tapers off into the beautiful black prairie lands thnt mark the approach of Valentine, Jeff Davis county. Here big northern companies are buying up nnd ex ploiting the country. introducing steam plows with their traction en gines. Before reaching Valentine a fine herd of antelope was seen from the car wlndyw grazing upon the prairie. On the Rancr. But It had not rained for more than seven months, the range was parched, cattle were very poor, and reported dying in some cases, and It made a fellow long to get back to old Tie Witt county, where all the lands nre not quite so fertile or fresh, but where a kind providence sends the early and later rain and where the efforts of the husbandman are commonly followed by bounteous harvests. Good land also obtains about Mar fa nnd Alpine, but it was dry till the country nbout lel Itio and t'valde was reached. Here the range was green and pretty from recent good rains and crops In Kinney nnd I'val de counties while backward, looked healthy and promising. But to di gress, it might be observed that the country for many miles beyond Del Itio Is rocks and very precipitous seemingly designed for little else than a vast waste of building material and an indifferent goat ranch.

Kansas City. Mo., August 1. The Western llockmuster probably Is the wisest marketer in the live stock trade. He has to deal with sheep, tile class of stock subject to the most violent price llueluatlons on the market, and his experience has taught him the lesson of patience and bow to spend a few dollars In order to save a hundred. He has not only distance to overcome, but also many times I awall the conven ience of the railroads and unneces sary delays, yet, taking his market ing the year around he is the most consistent ami nervy of all men who market their stock on the hoof and In large numbers. 1 '.astern Market Ioucr. Prices of sheep the last three weeks In the eastern markets haye 'been 60 to T.'i cents lower than In Kansas City. Thousands of native lambs In Chicago have gone over the scales TiO to 73 cents below cost. Louisville and Cincinnati markets, at which points Kentucky and Ten nessee rind an outlet for their sheep, have been 75 cents to Jl lower than here. Choice West Virginia lanubs sold In Jersey City last week at $7.25, as compared with $7.70 for native lambs in Kansas City. Re gardless of these prices the eastern ers are rushing their lambs to mar ket to be added to un already exces sive supply. Western sheep are not meeting any reverse in prices. Chicago Is still paying a slight margin over Kansas City prices, but the western er who, unfortunately, was on th-j road to market when his less skilled eastern brother started the market downward by unwise marketing, had his sheep sidetracked at some feed ing point near a large market ami will send In only a few carloads at n time and, by constant marketing, will nurse prices rather than demoralize them. Small Bci-clpts Here Ijist Week. Iist week Kansas City received only 13.800 sheep, yet that was due to no shortage in the supply In this, territory. More than twice that many are In neafby feeding lots awaiting the clearing of the eastern mutton market. Of course the westerner sometimes loses out y holding his offerings, as feeding Is expensive, and he is occasionally forced to throw them on a ragged market, but he is not willing to take chances with a dilapidated demand before he has tried a little doctoring by keeping the offerings away. The eastern markets generally maintain a margin of 25 to 50 cents over Kansas City. This represents the difference in freight shrinkage, but at the season of the year when one eastern Ibx-k is ready to move they all go at once and generally break prices 75 cents to $1.25, while the western ftockmaster generally gets his sheep In condition and slides Into the market in numbers more in keeping with the demand. About ten day9 ago 100 carloads of sheep from Arizona and New Mexico were head ed this way. but the unfavorable market prospects have caused them to disappear as completely as if they had been swallowed, so far as the trade Is concerned The owner 13 watching the market.

Not withstanding the fact that he had been released from the penltentiary at iuma less than two months ago. lobe Lavy is in a lair way to return to that institution again almost im mediately. Iicy s service was for cattle rustl ing, and he Is now in Jail at .Solomon ville charged with horse stealing. The offense was committed in Gra ham county, near Duncan. The pluck of Lucy's 15-year-old daughter nearly saved him from ar rest. When the otllcers traced him to his home she mounted a horse and rode beside him until their horses were exhausted. She kept so near him In the mad chase that the otllcers In pursuit dared not shoot lest they kill her also. Her frail body, however, was un equal to the task she had set for it and after having kept herself be tween her father and the otllcers for a number of miles her strength gave out and she was compelled to discon tinue her protection and the otllcers were then emubled to capture her father.
