t the Work Toest Street
!Las Cruces, N. M-. Dec. 10. The
contract for asphalting Mair street In
this city has been given to O. H.
Brown, of Las Cruces. who is now en
gage in the street improvement. J..
TV. Eubank, a civil engineer and con
tractor of the Pass City, who has
charge of the building or tne county
roads in El Paso as county surveyor,
kindly volunteered his services and his
experience to aid in the better con
struction of the new street, which
services were accepted by the board of
town trustees, and are duly appreciated
by that body and by the people of the
town. At the request of mayor R. l-.
Young, Mr. Eubank came here "Wed
nesday and gave his advice as to the
method to be employed, staying here
for two days in-order to see the work
Instead of using the crushed rock
which was the original plan, on ac
count of the long delay in getting the
material. It was decided to use the
gravel which is found la this county,
as the foundation for the street, thus
making this first street entirely out
of local material, with the exception
of the asphalt binding. A layer of
coarse stone is being placed on top of
the macadam street and this is treated
with a liberal coating of the asphalt
mixture, which in turn is covered with
a layer of coarse gravel, and then
rolled.. On top of this, another layer
of the asphalt is poured and another
layer of the gravel, the street being
again rolled with the heavy steam rol
ler. According to Mr. Eubank and
other engineers who have viewed the
work, this will make a durable and
smooth roadway, and one which will
not need repairing for several years.
Leon Gemoets, oV El Paso, has been
put in charge of the work as superin
tendent and the improvement is being

the Las Cruces Building and Improve
ment company, which owns the pro
posed site, asks 20,000 for it a sub
scription list was circulated to raise
ithe additional money. The list was
completed with the following names:
Martin Lohman, $750; T. Rouault, $750;
J. H. Riley, $750, May Brothers, $250;

counted as the subscription of the

It is tacftly understood that the gov
ernment would accept this location
provided the price came within the ap
propriation, and the subscription list
just raised makes this possible. Th
lot has a frontage of 125 feet on Main
.sjreet and 135 feet on Griggs street,
and is an ideal location- It is believed
that the officials at Tvas"hiigton will
decide upon the site about the first of
the year, although building operations
will probably not be commenced for
three or four years.
