The buckboard driver, up from Fort
Bascom yesterday, states that there is
no difficulty existing among cattle men
and the Panhandle, and the rumor that
men had been killed was entirely with

knowledge of it.

Big Railway Project.
A few months ago the Gazette pub
lished a supplement setting forth fully
the advantages to result to the Denver
& Rio Grande Railway Company by ex
tending its line from its present ter
minus at El Moro south to Las Vegas,
and thence down the rich valley of the
Pecos River to Laredo. From time to
time we have published articles on the
resources of the different sections
through which the road would be built.
But the great need, and one that has
long been realized, was a map of New
Mexico, showing the exact geographi
cal position of the cities and towns
along the proposed route, with the dif
ferent rich sections plainly marked, as
regards their resources. Accordingly,
a representative of the Gazette se
cured the services of Mr. A. N. Hough
ton, one of the best draughtsmen in the
West, who has taken great pains in
preparing such a map, comparing it
with notes of all surveys that have been
made. The map that we present to-day
is the result of his careful workman

Tw o colored deserters of the 9th cav

One was Roy already mentioned and
the other Wm.' Brown oí "L company.
Brown was arrested by Officer Frank

came up for Roy! Brown deserted
from his company at Ft. Bliss on the
Uth of April last. Going to Ysleta, Tex
as, he got into a row with some Mexi
cans and shot two of them. He was
lodged in the Ysleta jail but broke out
April 28. Officer Franklin had his
eye on him for some time, the darky
being employed by the railroad compa
ny, and took pity on the other coon in
his loneliness and gave him the benefit
of Brown's company.

The D. & R. G. R'y Co. is supposed
to contemplate the extension of its sys
tem to a connection with a gulf narrow
gauge system at Laredo, Texas, on the
Rio Grande, and also with the Mexican
National R. It., now building on to the
City of Mexico. The advantages of
such a line are very great, and the im
portance of the scheme is recognized by
the business men of Denver. If that
city is to become the great commercial
centre of the country cast of the
Rocky Mountains and the region lying
on the western slope of the mountains,
then she must have direct communica
tion either with New Orleans or some
gulf port in order to compete with Chi
cago and St. Louis.
There are two ways open to the D. &
R. G. for enriching ' itself by insuring
immense traffic. The line must be
built from Española, near Santa Fe, its
terminus on the west side of the range,
or from El Moro. . '
The former scheme is impracticable,

Of all kinds every morning, at the Old
Reliable Bakery of J. Graff 4 Co.
its line runs in New Mexico, there is
little local trade, nor will it ever
amount to much.' The roundabout, el
bow route from Denver to Cucharas,
thence to Alamosa and down to Españ
ola, is not such as to become a through
line for heavy traffic. The grades are
very steep, like the Veta pass, for ex
ample, and will not answer the require
ments of án air line, such as is needed.
From Denver to El Moro the D. & R.
G. already has an air line, w hy not con
tinue it? Extending that lino due south
to Las Vegas, a distance of 110 miles,
would give the road a direct lino to the
metropolis of New Mexico and reach
the head waters of the Pecos. It could
be economically built, for the road
would skirt the foothills and have the
advantage of water grades all the way.
The most practicable route would be
via Trinidad, Cimarron, Mora and Las
Vegas. It would, pass through Colfax,
Mora and San' Miguel Counties, where
a largo local trade would be secured.
This region is rich in agricultural pro
ducts, silver, copper and coal, timber
and live stock. The route, in fact, has
every advantage over that via Españ

Tho most practicable route to Laredo
is down the Pecos,, and besides the pro
ducts of that fertile valley the line
would reap a rich harvest by its ; loca
tion near extensive mining districts.
Besides it would be in easy access to
extensive stock-growing sections. .
Should, however, the D. & R. G. not
see fit to build this line, Denver capital
ists, with Gov. Evans at the head, ought
to construct the Denver & New Orleans
Road from Denver to Trinidad, and
then on to Las Vegas on the course that
we have denoted, and down the Pecos.
A connection could be made with the
Texas & Pacific R'y, and New Orleans
reached in this way, and the road ulti
mately built to the gulf. , .
Either of these schemes are deserving
the careful consideration of the people
of Colorado and New Mexico, and such
an interest awakened that a road should
be built from El Moro or Trinidad , to
Las Vegas and then down tho Pecos
Valley; '.'vi' ' f J:

articles on different sections that will
be published in due time, in proof of
