VAIN SEARCH FOR VICTORIA LAND BUYER UNABLE TO FIND "BLUE PRINT" CITY IN SONORA. Whereabouts of Mysterious Metropolis of Rio Yaqui Region Baffles Interested Parties. Victoria, the mysterious metrop olis of the Rio Yaqui region of Sonora, Mexico, of which mention was made in The Oasis two weeks ago, is a much sought locality at the present lime. A most i ate rest ing feature of the exciting search for this Mexican Paradise is I that none of the people who are seeking the place seem to be able to find it, notwithstanding the fact that they own lots and are provided with "blue prints" showing the lo cation of the "city" on the Cana nea, Yaqui River & Pacific railroad extension in Mexico. Diligent in quiry in railroad circles also fails to biing out any information con cerning the new and wonderful town. Interesting developments in con nection with the Citr of Victoria may be expected to transpire in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, within a few days. In Oklahoma City is located the office of the '"Toledo Development & Exploration Com pany of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and Ciudad Victoria, Sonora, Mexico." The company has been felling lots in Victoria to people in Oklahoma and one of the lot own ers, Mr. W. F. Reece, a prominent farmer and stockman of Gotebo, Oklahoma, was in Nogales this week,-en route to Victoria. Here, at the gateway to Sonora, he could find no one who had ever heard of Victoria, until quite recently, when letters of inquiry were received by residents of the line city in regard to the new, booming city. Mr. Reece was a very much surprised man and remained in town long -enough to consult a number of .Nogales men who have passed back and forth through the country des cribed many times in the past ten or twelve years, none of whom had ever heard of Victoria. No one connected with the extension of theCananea, Yaqui River & Pacific railroad, on whose line the town is described as being situated, had ever heard of the place. Mr. Reece then bought a ticket for Oklahoma City, with "blood in his eye." He announced his in tention . to file charges of fraud against the members of the Toledo Development fc Exploration Com pmy, unless they can show him the city of Victoria. The company has its odice in the City Hail building in Oklahoma City and its letter head contains the printed names: J. S. Carle, president; J. 3. Patrick, vice president; G. W. Patrick, secretary; 0. L. Hudson, treasurer; C. C. Pottenger, general manager. Mr. Reece alleges he was told by the venders of the lots that the town was in the Yaqui valley and that the new road already had been graded to the place, but sixty miles of rails had to be laid before trains would be running in. Tint the valley at that place is! 1 i , ir--Mi i m, I i, ii( ' i u. iiii,- v i ',(.; .mil fit f . bill, ! r th I fu'VII, ,tf" ,' Uf I ;l tr i if , f'i ,'; ; j j. in' !

A printed "bulletin" issued by the "company" and displayed here by Mr.Vlteece, announced the in tention of the company to run regular monthly excursions from Oklahoma City to Ciudad Victoria once a month beginning March first, when the railroad to the town would be completed, "provided they can get a guarantee of 300 tickets for each excursion." They expect "on the first regular excur sion train to carry at least 500 people." One of the features of the "bul letin" is the information volun teered to those who care to go in search of "Ciudad Victoria." It reads: "The resident manager of this company has just completed a trip over the line as far as completed and reports to us that it will be impossible to secure carriages or other means of conveyance at that that point. This necessitates a a change at Torres, Sonora, at which point connections are made with the Torres & Prietas road to La Colorado. At La Colorado carriages can be secured at reason able hire for the trip overland, a distance of about 108 miles. "To those desiring to go at this time we would recommend that they take at least one pair of double blankets, warm clothing and overcoat. Very good accomo modations can be had at the small villages on the overland trip." It is wel) known here that any one attempting to make the trip outlined would be stopped at La Colorado, as the Yaquis in the sec tion of the country described render it impossible for a small party to make ihe trip without a large armed escort. Should a small party of men, and particularly strangers, attempt the trip outlined in the company's bulletin, it would be a miracle if any of them should ever be heard from again. In all probability they would fall victims to one of the many little bands of marauding Yaquis before covering fifty miles of the journey south. As to the laying of the rails on the part of the road understood to be referred to in the pamphlet, the road has not been graded and the present outlook is that the road through the section referred to will not be completed for at least eight months.
