THE MAXWELL GRANT.
The (Iaette has spoken in very pos
itive terms oí the rieh region lying bo
tween Las Vegas and the liatón Moun
tains, and the good local trade that
could be secured for a railroad that
should be built south from Trinidad
through Long's canyon to New Mexico
and thence over a practicable route to
Las Vegas through Colfax, Mora and
San Miguel counties. Such a line
would pass through the Maxwell Grant,
and its projectors would undoubtedly
be granted valuable franchises and
voted material aid. The Grant forms a
part of Colfax county, one of the three
rich counties that would be tapped by
a railroad building along the base of
the foothills to this city. Mr. Sylvester
Baxter, special correspondent of the
Boston Herald, who has spent two or
three months in traveling over the Ter
ritory and examining different sections
with a critical eye, contributed the fol
lowing to the Herald of July 10th:
CIMARRON
is the seat of Colfax count v, the most im
portant part of which is included in
the Maxwell grant. It is now a town of
only about 3()0 inhabitants. But, with
its beautiful situation, nestling at the
foot of the noble mountains and just at
the mouth of one of the most pictur
esque canyons in the range, with its
nucleus of cultivated society, it ought
to be one of the most charming places
on the eastern slope of the llockies es
pecially when it has been made acces
sible by a projected branch of the Atch
ison, 'fopeka & Santa Fe. The entire
place makes an impression of good
taste. The houses are nicely construct
ed, and kept in perfect order; young
and nourishing shade trees border the
irrigated streets, and the town has re
cently received from Col. Reynolds the
gift of sjs.yWO for a public library.
A VALUABLE ESTATE.
The Maxwell Grant is unquestionably
a valuable piece of property. Besides
1,000.(100 acres or more of some of the
iinot grazing land in America, the
mountains contain inestimable treas
ures of t lie precious and baser metals.
Gold, silver, copper and iron are found
in rich quantities and there is a mag
nificent coal area of 1,000 square miles.
The celebrated Aztec gold mine is on
i he
l tram. Hie neiglihorhood ot
coal
will
anil iron of the best quality
doubtless make Baton a great
manufacturing centre. It- is on the
grant, close to the northern boundary
of Now Mexico and is now one of t lie
most rapidly growing towns in the ter
ritory. The object of the company is
to sell no land except that of town sites.
To develop its various resources, sep
arate companies are formed, in which
the Maxwell Company takes a control
ling interest. As with the San Pedro &
Canon del Agua Company, prospectors
are given a half interest in the vein of
anv precious metal they may discover.
t)c. Meyer, a German scienriric jour
nalist, and one of the editors of the
Vienna- Fatherland, who is in this coun
try with a party of Austrian and Hun
garian noblemen and is studying Amer
ican agriculture, to-gether with all sub
jects relating thereto, recently paid a
visit to the grant. Mr. Baxter, who
accompanied the party to Colfax
county, makes the following allusion to
his investigations in passing:
"Dr. Meyer naturally finds the grant
extremely interesting, and is making a
close study of it as a remarkable exam
ple of a great American landed estate,
far exceeding in magnitude anything
among the great estates of Austria and
Hungary.
STOCK RAISING.
The Maxwell Company is now making
preparations to go into stock raising on
a most extensive scale. The traveller
over the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe
railroad is astonished to see running
straight across the prairie, from west to
east, a short distance to the south of
Springer station, a wire fence. This is
the southern boundary of the Maxwell
grant, which is thus fenced in on the
sout h and east, making one of the long
est lines of continuous fence in the
world, inclosing a 700,000 acre pasture.
By this means the cattle can be securely
kept, and, by a mounted patrol along
the fence, they will be thoroughly
guarded from theft and prevented trom
straying. Including the inner inclos
ures for various classes of cattle it be
ing desirable to keep the various kinds
separate, such as those ready for the
market, breeding cows, etc. there are
now 175 miles of fence on the grant, and
there will soon be 200 miles. Some of
these inner inclosures are 10 miles
square.
The method to be pursued is to buy
herds of cows in Texas and cross them
with thoroughbred bulls. The first
cross is said to be the most profitable
for market. The grazing lands of the
grant will support at least 100,000 head
of cattle, and the herds of the company
will probably ultimately reach that
number. The grazing lands are fenced
only on the south and east, the moun
tains on tin north and west forming a
natural fence. During the summer the
cattle will be kept in the rich pasturage
of the mountain valleys, saving the
prairies for the winter pasturage. The
grama grass of the prairies, which
springs up under the rains of July and
August, is cured as it stands, forming
the most nutritious kind of hay for win
ter grazing.
A competent authority lias made an
estimate of the profits which might bo
made in five years with an investment
of 1300,000 in 11,000 cows, with & per
cent, calves, at $1.1,(100 1-year steers at
10, 410 thoroughbred bulls at $100, SO
horses at $50, corrals, wagons, saddles,
etc. This, it is estimated, alter a re-
Davmcnt of capital and interest, would
give a profit of $584,302 for the whole
A' 1 1 1 ? t 4 111 4
nve years, oesiue leaving oj,i i came iu
begin the sixth year with, The whole
is reckoned upon an extremely conser
vative basis, especially as far as selling
price and rate of increase are concern
ed, while a most liberal allowance is
made for expenses."
WRECKED HY A WASII-OIT.
The Pay Car on the A. A- P. Road
Thrown from the Track
Charle Ellis, the Engi
neer, Killed
The first accident of any importance
which has occurred on the A. & P. road
for a long time, took place yesterday.
The pay car was on its return trip, and
when about six miles this side of Allan
town, it was wrecked by a wash-out.
The engineer, Charles Ellis, was killed,
and B. C. Brown, train-master of the
second division, received a bad cut
over the forehead. As soon as the train
was thrown from the track, word was
sent back to Allantown to the telegraph
car, which pulled down to the scene of
the wreck, connected with the wire and
telegraphed the sad intelligence to the
railroad officials in this city. Charles
Ellis, the engineer, was buried under
his engine for three hours before he
could be gotten out. When he was
found, life was almost gone, and in
spite of all that could be done, he ex
pired in a short time. His remains will
be brought to this city today, and will
be sent to his home in New Bedford,
Massachusetts, where he leaves a wife
and child to griev over his untimely
death. He left his home in February
last and brought an engine out for the
A. & P. company. During his short so
journ in New Mexico he had become a
favorite with all his companions. C. F.
Metcalf will accompany the remains to
New Bedford. Mr. Dunnison, the cash
ier of the road, Will Clark, Walter San
ders, Trainmaster Broekway and Will
T. Craft, were the only persons on the
train besides Ellis and Brown, and all
escaped without a scratch. Albuquer
