It is sent to every Poft Office in the Territory and has a large tan growing circulation among the ratelli gent and progressive people of the south' West. THURSDAY. AUGUST 15. New Mexico sends greeting to the straight Democrats now at work for free Coinage in Washington, and bids them God-speed in their good work. Of course the gold trust oan force an other issue of government bonds if it needs them in its business, and if it daree doit. Under thirty years of Republican ism in congress the laws of the land have been bnilt to accommodate the gold-bngs. They are maiters of the situation to-day just as they were in 1873. At last a full and satisfactory explana tion comes over the trembling wires. The immaculate Mayor Strong, of New York, is inspired by an overwhelming wish to be governor of the Empire state. This suggestion causes a peculinr twinkle to appear in Tammany's eye. New Y.ouk gossip tells of the formation of a company to explore the western por tion of the United States with a view to examine, buy, lease, sell, develop and operate gold mines and establish a South African gold industry in this country. Why notf Fleuty of good material out this way ou which to base a general min ing boom. The game at figures is being played with variations in Boat.n and Montana copper stock. Six months ago it was selling at $17 per share, now it ranges close to $'.)0. The Boston Herald puts forth this pointer: Briefly stated, it is this: Product, 40,000,000 pounds a year; cost, G1 cents; selling price, 11 J cents; profit per pound, 5 cents; profit on 40, 000,000 pounds, $2,000,000, or about $12 per share on the 150,000 shares, with eaoh cant advanoe in gelling price to add $100, 000 to the profits. IS THERE AN ALLIANCE? The mere suggestion that the Atlantic & Pacific railroad bondholders have or ganized friendly relations with the D. it K. G. company, looking to the formation of a new through line of travel to the Pa cifio coast, opens up a wonderful range of possibilities on the railway checker board in the southwest. The intimation which comes from Albuquerque that the true inwardness of the legal contest now on hearing there is based on some such move as this will tend to add greatly to the interest already taken by the general public in the A. fc P. bondholders' appli cation for the severance of the relations long existing between the A. fc P. and the A., T. & S. F. companies. The fact that Mr. D. B. Robinson, manager of the A., T. & 8. F., has felt called npon to express, in an affidavit filed with the court on Tuesday, his opinion to the effect that the A. &, P. could not establish a success ful through route by building from Albu querque to a connection with the D. & R. G. at Sauta Fe, indicates that there Iibb been some serious talk on this point in railroad circles, and renders it a subject for discussion, a very entertaining eub ject for the people of Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and California in partic ular. That the D. & H. G. system seeks and fully intends to extend its lines into New Mexico seems now assured. It has stood still a long time and thereby permitted itself to be pretty effectively hemmed in by competing lines. In figuring on an extension of its lines from Santa Fe south what would be more natural than that it should seek to "play even" with the A., T. A S. F. for its enoroaohments on Colorado soil by supplanting that road in the enjoyment of speoial privi leges with the A. fc P. roadf And what sort of a new trans continental route could be got together as a result of such an alliance, clearly against the Santa Fe at every point? Perhaps tbe Burlington, the Rook Island or even the Missouri I'aoifio, with their splendid eastern con nections, one or the other of them, standi ready in reaching for an independent line across the mountains into California to back the D. & R. G. and A. & P. in any combined effort of this sort. The diatanoe from Kansas City via Trinidad, Albuquerque and the A. & P. to Los Angeles is 1,807 miles. The distanoe from Kansas City to Los Angeles over the new proposed route via Denver, Pueblo, Santa Fe to Albuquerque, thence over the A. A P., is a little over 2,000 miles, or a difference iu the two routes of about 200 miles, the Santa Fe having that muoh tbe shorter haul, equal to six hoars and forty minutes. This difference could be oat down one-half by routing the through travel over the new line via Pueblo. Bat It the A. k P. stookbolders win their pres ent salt and should break entirely away from tbe Santa Fe, tbe latter road would send its trains on to Deming and there transfer its California traffic to tbe South ern Pacific. This arrangement would make the Santa Fe's haul between Kansas City and Los Angeles 1,873 miles, while ovor the A. & P.-D. A R. G. route via Pueblo the distance would he about l,!l;i!) miles, a difference of sixty-six miles iu favor of the Santa Fe, which is precisely the advantage which the A. &, P. route between Albuquerque and Los Angeles now enjoys over the Souther Pacific route between those two points. This differ ence is not material when it is considered that the new route has superior scenic attractions that would immediately ap peal to all the tourist travel, and when, also, it is calculated that such a shorten ing up of the D. & R. G. mileage between Pueblo and Albuquerqne is possible as would give the two routes exactly the same number of miles of travel between the Missouri river and Los Angeles 1,873 miles. On the other hand, to carry out such a project, the D. & R. G. would have to break away from its old-time Utah ally, the Rio Grande & Western, mid drop the Central Pacific This would stir up the animals in that direction. Again, ont on the coast, the California Southern, an A., T. fc S. F. property, would hamper the new alliance in reaching from Barstow to Los Angeles, 141 miles, and bother it by diverting San Diego traffic. The Santa Fe is very resourceful and with the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific working together out there other complicntions would arise that are likely to make life for the new allianoe, in case it is effected, a consider able burden. Thus there are strong points to be counted both for and ngaiust the suggested new arrangement, but, iu any event, one thing is certain, wo may expect the hot legal fight now on in the courts of New Mexico to attract very wide-spread attention till the final result is made public.

NEW MEXIOO I FFERS unequaled advantages to the farmer, fruit grower, live stook raiser, dairyman, bee keeper, and to the home-seeker generally. The soil of the Pecos Valley is of high average fertility, and nnder irrigation produces bountiful crops of most of the grasses, grains, vegetables, berries and fruits of the temperate and some of those of the semi tropical zone. In such fruit as the peaoh, pear, plum, grape, prune, aprioot, nectarine, oherry, qninoe, etc., the Valley will dispute for the pre-eminence with California; while competent authority pronounces its upper portions in particular the finest apple conntry in the world. Enormous yields of snoh forage crops as alfalfa, sorghum and Egyptian oorn make the feeding of cattle and sheep and the raising and fattening of hogs n very profitable occupation. The cultivation of canaigre a tanning material of great value is beooming an important industry iu tho Pecos Valley, a home market having been afforded for all that oau be raised, at a price yielding a handsome profit. The climate of the Pecos Valley has no superior in the United States, being pre-eminently healthful and health restoring. Lands with perpetual watei-rights are for sale at low prices and on easy terms. The water supply of the PeooB Valley has no equal in all the arid region for constancy and reliability; and ti.is with the superb climate, productive soil and the facilities afforded by the railway which extends through the Valley's en tire length, will cause these lands to enjoy a constant, and at times rapid, increase in value. The recent completion of the Pecos Valley Railway to Roswell will oause the mire rapid settlement and development of the upper portions of the Valley, including the rich Feliz section. The company has recently purchased many of the older improved farms about Roswell, and has now for Bale lands to meet the wants of all raw lauds, partially improved lands, as well as farms with houses, orchards and fields of alfalfa and other crops. In the vicinity of Roswell several pieces of land have been divided into five and ten acres trnots, snitnble for orchards and track farms in connection with suburban homes. Certain of these tracts are boing planted to orchards, and will be cultivated and oared for by the company for three years lit the end of which period they will be handed over to the purchasers. Write for pamphlet fully describing the terms and conditions on whioh these several olasses of tracts are sold.
