SANTA FE NEW MEXICAN VOL. 40 Home Ranch cf LEONARD WOOD COUNTY HAS GOOD PROSPECTS The Indications Are Favorable to the Passage of the Bill Creating the County to Embrace Present Guadalupe County and Twenty-one Townships of Valencia County. THE COUNTY SEAT AT SANTA ROSA. A FLOURISHING AND GROWING TOWN The present Indications are favorable to the passage of the bill creating Leonard Wood county with Santa Ro sa as the county seat, and the delega tion of Santa Rosa citizens here push ing the matter feels encouraged. Those here are C. H. Stearns, G. H. Smith; Jr., E. R. Wright, and Celso Baca. The proposed new county Includes all that portion of Guadalupe county which has not been taken into Quay and Roose v velt counties and, Should the bill be come a law, Guadalupe county will be wiped out in the three new counties. In addition, 21 townships of Valencia county are included so that the pro posed county is almost square and is 66 miles east and west by 60 miles north and south. . The estimated population of .the county is 9,000 and the present taxable valuation is $800,000. The SI Paso di vision of the Rock Island railroad sys tern runs through the county from the northeast to the southwest corner anil . when, In three or four years, the rail road company begins to pay taxes, the .. taxable valuation of the county will be $1,500,000. From the northwest to the southeast corner of the new county, the Pecos river flows and Santa Rosa, the proposed county seat is near ly the geographical center, of the county and is at the crossing of the river by the railroad. The country and particularly the Pe cos valley, is exceptionally" rich. - Up and down the valley, from Santa Rosa to Anton Chico, 35 miles, and as far down the valley as Port Sumner, 50 . miles, the valley is well cultivated. The famous fruit ranches of the Pecos val- ' ley were settled and set to trees from SO to 40 years ago. The Very best of deciduous fruits is grown in abundance. But a very smalt per cent of the land outside of the grants, is taken up and the country is being rapidly settled. East of Santa Rosa, cattlemen from Texas are settling and the majority of new settlers coming In are from Texas, Oklahoma and Missouri. The promo ters of the new county believe there -will be great oil developments. They have faith that the oil Is there but they do not have great faith in the compan ies which have so far bored for it. Re cently a new company has been organ ized from which substantial results are expected, or at least a thorough test of the field will be made. Experts have pronounced the indications of oil to be excellent, but none of the wells so far put down have gone deeper than 1,000 Teet. OH Is scarcely expected except at from 2,000 to 3,000 feet and the new Company has equipment for going to that depth.' Oil was struck in Colorado at about 3,000 feet and this depth is be lieved to be necessary in order to give a tair test. . .-" i . - The business and trading center of all this country Is Santa Rosa and It is the only town which is accessible by "good roads or railroad from all parts of the proposed county, The new town of Santa Rosa has a population of about 1,200, Is growing in a substantial manner and not by leaps as a boom town, i The Santa Rosa of old was lo cated a short distance down the Pecos from the present town which was started in April, 1901, and is therefore less than two years old. The new town is regularly laid out with wide . streets and uniform blocks. "The town Is built around a plaza and the build- ; lngs which have recently been erected, ;are now under construction or are pro jected, are substantial and of a char acter far superior to the average of the new western towns. Prom Santa Rosa, star mall routes extend to all towns In that section of the territory, . and it Is the distributing center for mall as well as supplies. The postal facili ties are of the best and there Is good mall connection with all parts, of the new county. The town now has three wholesale . houses, several general storestwo meat markets, one drug tore,, one undertaker and , furniture vtore, one shoe store, two bakeries, two lumber yards, six hotels and restaur ants In addition to many good boarding houses. The First National Bank Is a sound and Well organised Institution and occupies Its own building which. Is modem and of stone, Large stocks of Charles Sumner, Guadalupe County. goods are carried as the country sup plied is so extensive. During the snow blockade of three weeks ago, 1,500 pas sengers were held at Santa Rosa and all their wants ware supplied without taxing the resources of the town in the slightest degree. The railroad facilities are of the best. The Hock Island system has a large terminal yard, a ten stall round house, repair shop, water treating plant, and large stock yards which are fitted with modern feeding and watering facilities. The Pecos river insures the freighter an abundance of water for his stock and makes Santa Rosa a favorite rest ing place or shipping- point. The Rock j island last week put in new steam power for the round house and has in creased its force. This road haB stored a large mouant of water about a mile from the town which is found to be satisfactory for its use. The El Paso and Northeastern, which extends from Santa Eosa to El Paso, has a large wa ter treating plant In use which is found to be satisfactory and the same meth od has been adopted by the town to be used if necessary. There are two or three good wells. There Is an abund ance of water for all purposes within a mile and a half of town, and when cap ital takes hold of it, it will Be piped by gravity into the town. On account of the short time which the town has been in existence, the school facilities have not been good, but there is now a project under way to found an academy which will be pushed through by next fall and the schools will then be of the best. There is an ideal site for a sanitarium at Ba ca's lake, near the town. There is a high bluff overlooking the lake . and surrounding country and the energetic people of Santa Rosa have taken hold of the matter in earnest. Efforts are now being put forth to have the sani tarium that is projected by the actors of tie country and also that projected by the Hebrews located there. Should both of these propositions fail, the peo pie of Santa Rosa will take this matter up themselves. There is now a court house at Puerto de Luna which cost $30,000, but this, it is claimed can now be duplicated at Santa Rosa for $10,000, The townslte company will donate the site for the building. The surrounding country is full of in' terest and beauty The Pecos river in Itself is historic and flows through his toric ground, its headwaters being the birthplace of Montezuma. In early times the. valley 'around Santa Rosa was the rendezvous for tribes of hostile Indians, herds of antelope and buffalo, arid In later years was the . objective point of the explorers and wagon trains sent out from the Missouri river - and which were the forerunners and. train; makers of the great railway .systems which now span the west. At Santa Rosa the river is crossed by the Rock Island system by a bridge of steel and masonry which is over 100 feet ,; high, and is one of the largest of its class. The xock formations about Santa Rosa are very Interesting and present a field for research well worthy the at tention of geologoglst. Sandstone and limestone seem to predominate but in addition are many formations of gyp sum. The "Sotanos" or blow holes, are still unsettled wonders; They appear in varying sizes, the average being about 200 feet in diameter. They vary in depth and one at Santa Rosa is over 200 feet deep to the first sreat ledge, and then probably "... 100 feet more through the cave down to the water. They are favorite points for excursion ists to visit and are easily reached. The gypsum springs within and sur rounding the town are marvellous and some of them give forth eight and ten inch streams. The socalled .bottomless, lakes are almost without number and they sound from 800 to 1,500 feet in clear water. It is, of course, beyond doubt that these lakes have bottoms but in some of them, they have not yet been found. ' Material is at hand for burning lime and making brick and the finest building stone is found In abundance. All histories of New Mexico mention the home of Celso Baca which Is at San ta Rosa, Mr. Baca owns a townslte ad-1 SANTA FE, Chicago & Rok PROGRESS OH THE SANTA FE CENTRAL General Manager W. S. Hopewell Gives a Synopsis of Work Done and What Will Be Done and Promises That Trains Will Be Bun- ning by June 1. THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE - CLARK COAL FIELDS REVEALS IMMENSE CARBONIFEROUS DEPOSITS Hon. W. S. Hopewell returned on Sat urday evening from his trip to Pitts burg ana Chicago. His family came with him from Chicago, his sons being much improved in health. Mr. Hope well was up and about at 7 o'clock this morning, with his tremendous energy directing" the affairs of the Santa Fe Central Railway Company of which he is manager. He took time enough, however, to tell the New Mexican rep resentative that the work of laying rails is being pushed from Torrance, al though it has been delayed Bomewhat by the recent great fall of snow. The track laying in the yards has been com pleted and the steel will go Jown rap Idly. The track laying will commence from the Santa Fe end In a few days, the rails for that purpose having pass ed Trinidad last Friday. Forty-five miles of rails will be laid from this end. The grading will all be completed by March 18, including the grade to the coal fields at Clark. Steady Investiga tion and development work at these coal fields has resulted in demonstrat- LingL-that there are four layers or veins of fine, workable coal, within a distance of 60 feet, the total thickness of the veins being 20 feet. Machinery has been installed and the showing made has exceeded the most sanguine expecta tions of those interested. The local depot of the Santa Fe Cen tral Railway will be at the foot of Montezuma avenue and Is the best site for the purpose in Santa Fe. It is only a block from the capitol, 100 yards from the Santa Fe depot and within sight of the penitentiary, the United States In dian school, the Deaf and Dumb Asy lum and St. Michael's Colloge. The Denver and Rio Grande trains will run into the same depot which will be a handsome structure. . .. There are a number of Improvements in Santa Fe and extensions of the road which have been determined upon but which it is too early to designate specir flcally, but this much can be said, that the completion of the Santa Fe Central on June 1, will mean the beginning of a new era of progress and prosperity for Santa Fe. The road would have been completed on May 1, but the delay In the arrival of material and unusually untoward weather have delayed the prospective completion of the road and the running of trains until June 1.
