"Now life lia 1icn smldonlv
infusoil into San Antonio." said
Judii'o D.mii-1 II. McMillan of
Socorro, to a Journal reporter at
the Alvarado last niyht. "The
formation of three railroad com
anies to lmild lines I'roiU that
place to the Carthage coal fields
and the immediate prospect of a
fourth, has served to wake the
town to a life it has not known
for years, and to make the situa
tion in that section very interest
ing." Juilc McMillan is one of the
principal movers in the organiza
tion of one of these railroad com
panies, which propose to lap the
coal beds at Carthage. His com
pany,' like the others, is ready to
proceed with the construction of
the ten miles of railroad, and it
seems to hold out the prospect of
very interesting times when the
race for the b.'st rights of way
begins. Jud-e McMillan left
last iiijfht for Santa Ke.
The situation at San Antonio
is sufficiently unusual to be iter
estinr. Some vears airo the
Santa Fe railroad built a branch
to the Carthage coal fields. Later
they tore up the track believing
that the tra flic from the Carthago
district did not warrant the
expense of operation. Lately,
however, the attention of miners
and engineers has been called
afresh to the Carthage fields by
the discovery of new bods, which,
in the estimation of experts, will
turn out immense quantities of
coal for twenty years. The old
rade used by the Santa Fe is
still standing practically intact,
and all three of the proposed
lines arc anxious to et control of
this ready made road bed. The
line, however, is all over public
domain, and it will be necessary
to ret the consent of the secretary
of the interior for its use. Here,
airain, a race between the three
companies seems prohauie. Anoth
er point over which there has
been some rivalry is a bridge
over tho Kio tirando at San An
tonio, which all three companies
desired to use. This has been
settled in a manner which leaves
the railroad builders up in the
air higher than before by the
Socorro county commissioners,
who found they could, play no
"A meeting of the county com
missioners of Socorro county was
held last niirht at which the mat
ter of the use of the San Antonio
bridge was discussed," said Judge
McMillan. "The commission
very properly decided that it had
no right to give the use of the
bridge exclusively to any com
pany, and its decision was that
any or all of the railroads could
use it, provided they maintained
it free of charge to the county for
the use of both as a railroad and
wagon bridge. There isconsidera
ble freight to be hauled out of
Carthage, and the expense of
operation of tho road will be
small, so that there may be busi
ness for more than one road.
Some of those interested in the
proposed lines hold coal lands in
the district, but one at least of
the railroad companies is going
in solely for the freight business
that is to be had.
"I am informed that within the
next week another corporation
will be formed to build a fourth
road into the Carthage district,
this one to come down the east
bank of the Kio (rande from
San Marcial. This line will have
three miles more of road tu build,
but it will have the advantage of
no bridges, whereas there are
two on the other lines, as
proposed from San Antonio."
"And which of these four com.
panies is likely to come out on
top?" was asked.
"That is something' I am not
now prepared to answer," said
Ju'le McMUUa.

a project that could be taken up

I'M tor Chieftain:
In last week's Chieftain it was
stated that on the previous Sun
day a party consisting of two
young women and four or live
young gentlemen left San Anto
nio on a hand car excursion for
Socorro and. a rain storm- intercepting-,
every member was soaked
to the skin belore reaching their
destination. The article concluded
with the words, "There was
nothing dry about that picnic."
the true tacts of the allair are
as lollows: on that isunday
afternoon two young ladies and
their escorts wont to Socorro on a
hand car intending to take sup
per at the. Windsor and return to
San Antonio before dark. Put
when the rain was over, which,
bv the way, occurred while the
party was at the hotel, the agent
at the depot advised them not to
go home on the hand car as
trains were on the road, and
besides there was danger of
washouts. The young people
returned to the hotel and awaited
the southbound passenger, which
was on time. Tho party arrived
lioine perfectly safe and dry, and
as tho Wi ndsor hotel has a roof and
the train was likewise protected
tjie statement made last week
was not true.
The honorable person who
contributed such a falsehood to
bj printed in the Chieftain might
not be so elated over his intended
maliciousness if he realized of
what little credit a falsehood is
to him and how much it adds to
his present uublotted reputation.
Yours truly,

The practice introduced bv Mr.
Martin of having the court fundi
pertaining to each county deposit
ed with the banking linn in that
county until they are officially
paid out or turned into the terri
torial treasury, is also highly
commendable and one that should
be adopted by every other dis
trict court clerk in the Territory.
These funds are deposited to
Mr. Martin's official credit and
cannot be used except officially.
