Judge McFie of Las Cruces savs that the irrigating system of the English company will extend clear from Ele phant Butte to this city; also that 200 men and teams are building a divert ing dam, fifteen miles north of Las Cruces, and ditches from that point south, and it is the intention of the company to begin work upon the main reservoir in July next, to be pushed vigorously until finished. The company intends furnishing water to the community ditches now in use. free of charge until the Elephant Butte reservoir is completed, and then will make a charge of $1.25 per acre to those taking water from the system. As a result of the building of this vast irrigation svstem. lands &rpt acta in salable, a number of transfers havine- been made recently, and there i rrfru evidence of a large influx of new sit ers the coming spring and summer.
