At the present time Xogales is a prosperous little town and will be years to come. Later it wil larger and more prosperous than will be far greater than what would be cut off by merely running a line from Tucson to Xogales along the .Santa Cruz river and the latter cutoff would affect only the trade from Pacific coast points, while the cutoff from Benson to Nacozari will affect that great volume of trade from the eastern part of the United States south At evening there was a ball at base ball game and the race course! the school house, which was a very having been laid off therein j enjoyable gathering.

The Mowry people surely do know 1 t least, the great port of entry to Mexico and the great railroad center that rumor so rashly pre dicts it will be. In the opinion of railroad men whose positions have acquainted them with the different routes now in use and those in contemplation; with the prospects and present development of the territory through which it is necessary or desirable to build and with the trallic that enables railroads to pay dividends, Xogales is not to be the port of entry on the main line of the Cananea, Yaqui River & Pacific road. While it is tft pres ent the main port of entry for that road, so far as construction work has progressed, the "branch" of that road now being constructed from the Yaqui river north to Nacozari, will prove not to be a branch, but the main line. Men who have worked the better part of their lives on railroad extensions, ex pect to see the line extended north- with 'iaf inches drilled by their j how certainty and its benefits to i touting contestants, Jennison A: j and Xogales will not depend entirely j Miller (there were two Millers in I day upon a railroad survey.

It is claimed for them, .. . m .11 1 i j I'll an extent that a road alone the i however, mat meir anus were to make things interesting enjoyable on Independence Santa Cruz will be a dividend payer and that fact will assure its con struction. The same conditions may in time bring about a con necting line between Xogales and Cananea. But it is not probable that such connecting branches will be used as a part of the main route between the international line and the interior of Mexico. While it is very encouraging to the residents of this progressive and growing town to hear it spoken of as the port of entry on what is to he the main line of a great rail road running from the interna tional line to the City ot Mexico, it will not prove of lasting benefit should it be learned liter that the 1 town must be satisfied to bo what it is now: the port of entry to the The Fourth at Home. Though there was no celebration tempered too brittle and chipped off in the holes, the chips making harder tho work of drilling. Neither of the losing teams feel that the unfortunate circumstances noted worked anything but disad vantage to them, and that on that account they did not do near as well as they can. So it is talked that there will be another contest at an early day (on the side), when they hope to win out. After the. drilling contest was I of the Fourth in Xogales, the small boy was out with his firecrackers, and with the crackers to make a noise and his imagination to do the rest, he fought through all the bloody battles of the Revolution. The Nogales Concert Band march ed with martial tread to the City park in the middle of the forenoon and played the national airs and several other airs, the boys doing their share towards properly ob- erving the great day as conscien tiously as if all the rest of the citi- linished the assembled multitude 1 zens of the town were backing them up. In the evening they gave a dance at Armory hall that was attended hv nearly all the voun g (COMXVI.EU ON r.Ar I'A'iK.) were invited to participate in the barbecue, three fine, fat steers having been roasted.
