The Telephone Company yesterday
placed a telephone in the Gazette

ourselves. Hereafter if you have any
idea you would like to "thump" the ed

The Episcopal convocation, convened
in Santa Fe, elected Rev. II. Forrester
and W. C. Ha.ledine, of Albuquerque,
delegates to the general convocation.
Mr. II. C. Baldwin, of this city, was ap
pointed one of the Standing Committee
of the diocese.
Mr. M. Whitcman, one of our live
business men, shipped i, TOO pounds of
freight yesterday, and 4,(100 pounds to
day, to his branch house in WhiteOaks.
.Mr. Whiteman says his business is in
creasing so fast that he will be justified
in buying teams to do Ids freight-
I). 11. Maud, contractor of the Las
Vegas gas works, left for Trinidad yes
terday and will return on Saturday. He
will arrange for the turning on of the
gas in the Trinidad works before he re
turns. His last words, as he jumped, on
the train before leaving, were, "I don't
expect to meet Houghton there."
C. M. Villianis was yesterday mov
ing his stock of drugs on the east side
into his new store room on Railroad
avenue. This isa good room for the
purpose. Mr. George C. Sharp, for.
inerly with Ford & Arnold, Kansas
City, and a thoroughly trained drug
gist, will take the -management of the
east side store.
It is confidently expected that the
street railway will be placed in opera
tion next week. The cars were shipped
from St. Louis on the Slh, and are due
here to-day. The live stock for the line
is all at luind, and everything in readi
ness for beginning running as soon as
the cars do arrive. Leaving a few days
for a margin, it is safe io count on t lie
opening of the railway next week.
News reached here yesterday of an
accident on the Southern Pacific R. 11.
near El Paso. Only a meagre account
of the wreck has been received. It hap
pened about three miles west of that
city, and an entire passenger train was
ditched. The. train was oil the rails
fourteen hours. We have received no
intimation as to whether any people
were injured or not.
The new railway hotel at. Denting
Junction opened yesterday morning,
breakfast being given for the first time,.
The hotel proper is not yet opened as
the furniture has not arrived, there be
ing delay in shipping it from Chicago.
It was started from there on Tuesday
but it is not likely thai it will reach
Deiningto permit the fitting up of the
house before the middle of next month.
The dining room, however, will be run
in the meantime, and that in the old
car that formerly did duty in Las Ve
gas and later at Lamy Junction has
There has been another change in the
managers of the Depot Hotel. W. E.
Stimpson, who has been in charge for
four or live months, wan yesterday su
perceded by R. Jefl'ries, manager of the
La Junta house. This arrangement is
only a temporary one, as a new man
ager from the East is expected to arrive
in a few weeks. Mr. Stimpson has
been unfortunate in his management of
the house on many accounts, and has
labored under many disadvantages. He
has by no means done himself justice
during these past few weeks, and not a
few would be glad to see him given
another chance, lie is a tip-top, genial
fellow, and we believe hint to be a com
petent hotel man. He and his agreea
ble wife leave to-day for Chicago, and
will then go to New York State. 'They
will be missed in Las Vegas.
The gas works have been formally
turned over to the Las Vegas Coal and
Coke Company by Mr. 1). II. Irland the
contractor. The company accepted
the works as satisfactory in every way,
and now have them under their full
control. Now that they have passed
from Mr. Irland's management, the Ga
zettc desires to thank him on behalf of
the people of Las Vegas for the strenu
ous efforts he has made to complete the
works as soon as possible, constantly
contending against diilieiilties. We can
all take pride in saying that for their
size, there are no better works in tho
west. The stockholders of the compa
ny are also to be complimented for
carrying out their lirst successful plan
of public improvement. Two directors
in particular have been untiring in their
efforts to attain this result, J. Rosen
wald Esq., President of the company,
and Mr. T. F. Chapman, ex-Secretary.
Lot Ca Celebrate and Rejoice Together.
"It is now probable that President
Garfield will recover from the danger
ous wound inflicted by the madman
Guiteau. In view of such ultimate re
covery, and when he is declared by his
physicians out of danger, it is proposed
that meetings be held throughout the
country to express joy and satisfaction
at such a happy result. In this matter
we cannot afford to be behind the times,
and the Gazette proposes that a grand
celebration be prepared to take place
on the announcement that the Presi
dent is out of danger. This celebration
should not be local, but general, and
we extend a cordial invitation to all the
people in the Territory to meet togeth
er in Las Vegas and give voice to the
pent up feelings of rejoicing that Gar
field, the ablest President that has held
the office since Jackson, has passed the
dangerous period of his wound, and
spared to continue his beneficent ad
ministration. At an appropriate time
a meeting will be called to appoint
committees to provide the ways and
means to make a proper display,
secure artillery from Fort Union, music,
bonfires, fireworks, etc., and arrange a
programme of speeches, inviting able
orators in English and Spanish to par
ticipate. In case Garfield recovers then
let us have a general celebration of the
event at Las Vegas, and show the world
how Americans can rejoice when the
people are thoroughly aroused and
awakened to the well being of the coun
try. The Las Vegas Gazette rehashes
the specials from El Paso which have
appeared in the Xcw Mexican during
the past week, and sends it out a a-n
associated press dispatch. When its
exchanges come in it will be surprised
possibly, to read the full particulars
sent from the New Mexican oilice forty
eight hours earlier than it gets them oil'.
The following is the rehash. A'-
Mexican of Ihc .Villi.
The Santa Fe daily has puffed itself
up to such an extent that it has either
fallen into the habit of misrepresenting
its contemporaries of the Territorial
press, else must plead guilty of being
imbued with such supreme cheek as to
play a game of bluff in the matter of
trying to deceive the public- into the be
lief that it is really enterprising. It is
attempting to defend itself, and (lis
pule the former charge, in a fierce tri
angular warfare waged by three papers
in the Territoiy who at. present appear
to be getting the best of the fight. As
regards the latter condition, all that it
is necessary to state is that the Ga
zette "hoids over it cverv time. We
don't propose to wrangle with the Xcw
Mexican for it is a railway organ, known
and acknowledged as such, and we
have as great respect for the A. T. & S.
F. Railroad company that controls it, as
we have contempt for its moulhpioce.
The Gazette has repeatedly had op
portunities for taking the Santa Fe
railway organ to task for decidedly un
professional, not to say discourteous
treatment. Rut we have remained si
lent both because we do not approve of
professional squabbles, and on account
of our respect for the "small" spirit
that characterizes the mouthpiece. Rut
on this occasion, we are led to defend
the Gazette from the charge imputed
to it, of attempting to dupe our Colora
do brethren. This oJllce was called
upon on Tuesday night to turn into the
Associated Press for the benefit of the
Colorado press, then suffering a tele
graphic embargo by reason of violent
storms on the Missouri river, any items
of interest we might be in possession of.
We complied in so far as it was possible
on a supremely dull ,day. The Xcw
Mexican saw lit to publish four of the
five telegrams sent out by the Gazette.
That over which there was such a rum
pus cut up had been published in this
journal on Tuesday morning, at the
same time that a "telegram" of the
same tenor was published in the Xcw
Mexican. It was sent by the press ope
rator here who had first asked if it was
desired. As regards the publication of
Indian news the Gazette has been one,
two, and even three days ahead of the
N. M. since the lamentable massacre
of the Mexican Central Railway engi
neers. A word to Editor Greene. We have
not written one word of this for your
benefit, but solely to set ourselves right
with the Colorado press. We court no
controversy, we propose to have none
with you! All we went is fair treat
ment, and we propose to have it
Acting Governor W. G. Ritch has
telegraphed the following in reference
to the setting apart of a day of Thanks
giving for the delivery of President
Garfield from death by assassination:
Santa Ff, N. M., July 11th, 1881.
To His Excellency, Charles Foster, Co
I wholly agree, as all patriotic citi
zens of this Territory will also agree,
with suggestion of your telegram of the
lOte inst., received to-day, that in view
of the recovery, hopefully foreshad
owed, of President Garlield, from the
horrible attempt at assassination, proc
lamation be issued by the Governors
respectively of the States and Territo
ries on a day to be agreed upon for
thanksgiving and praise to Almighty
God for the President's deliverance anil
his preservation to liberty and a free
people, W. G. Ritch.

Charles llfeld and his sister-in-law,
Miss Emma Nordhaus, returned yester
day from Las Cruces. Miss Nordhaus
has been visiting some time with her
sister, Mrs. A. Shutz, of that city.
F. 1). Blake, until recently manager
of the Depot Hotel at Raton, left yes
terday for a visit of several weeks in
Chicago. When he returns there is a
strong possibility that he will resume
his old position.
Hon. E. A. Fiske returned to Santa
Fc yesterday after spending several
days in this city. Now that the gas
works are in successful operation, we
must not, lose sight of the fact that to
Mr. Fiske we are greatly indebted for
this new improvement, as to him is due
the credit of inducing Mr. Irland to take
the contract for the works.
Mr. W. R. Morley, Chief Engineer of
tlie Guaytuas branch of the A. T. & S.
F. R. It., arrived front Hcrmosillo yes
terday noon. He left again on the Pa
cific express to confer with Chief Engi
neer Robinson, but returned to the city
on the "Irish mail." He will remain
here a week or more; long enough to
cool off. It was partly to cool off and
partly on a business errand that he
came up. lie is looking well, although
not as stout as when last in Vegas.
The Sonora Railroad is building cast
and the A. T. & S. F. west. .The point
where these two lines will meet on the
border is .Kit vet settled, and to reach a
determination in this matter by confer
ing with Chief Engineer Robinson is the
business object of Mr. Morley1 s present
visit. The road in Sonora is progress
ing very favorably. The heat at Iler
niosillo ranges front 80 to 1 18 degrees in
the shade, the higher figures being the
ordinary temperature this season of the
year. i lie greatest uimcuities have
now been overcome and the road is be
ing built steadily.
To-morrow Mr. I. B. Keepers, out
side superintendent of - the Central
Bridge Company, of New York, leaves
for the East with his force of men that
has been engaged for some time in put
ting in iron bridges on the line of the
A. T. & S. F. R. R. To Mr. Keepers
and James Lowrey, his foreman, ami
all his men a word in commendation
should be spoken. They have set up
seven large iron span bridges and four
large turn tables, and have shown
themselves to be first-class mechanics.
A proof of their excellent work is a very
complimentary note addressed to Mr.
Keepers by so critical a man as Chief
Engineer Robinson on the occasion of
Accepting the bridges. These seven
bridges have been placed, in position
without occasioning the slightest delay
to the trafile of the road, and not an ac
cident has happened to any man engag
ed on the work. Mr. Keepers has made
his headquarters in this city, and those
who have had the pleasure of forming
his acquaintance will regret from sel
fish motives that his work on the line is
finished, lie is an experienced and
careful man in the supcrintendency of
iron bridge building, and had charge of
the work on the celebrated Dale Creek
bridge, on the Union Pacific Railway,
and other large structures. His men
have deported themselves throughout
1 heir stay very well. They go from
here to La Salle, 111., where they will
put up a three-span, double-track
bridge on the Chicago, Rock Island &
Pacific R. R. After that is completed
they will be engaged on bridges on the
Lake Shore road, between Cleveland

yesterday, partly on business in Rincón

take the trip at this time more on ac
count of hopeful news received from his
mining properties in the Cerillos dis
trict. The &haft on his "Golden Gate11
mine is now down 5.j or CO feet, and he
has received advices that it continues
to grow richer as they go down. It was
rich in the beginning, and it signifies
much that it is growing richer.
