Very few Eastern people have a cor rect idea of the state of Las Vegas civ ilization. A New Yorker who arrived at the Depet Hotel a few evenings since asked the.clerk for a candle to take to his room. His hair almost stood on end when told that the hotel was fur nished with gas.

It is assured that under his administration any bus iness in the Register's ollice will be speedily and promptly dispatched. It would not bo amiss for the settlers on the Canadian, Pecos, Conchas, Ute Creek, etc., where lands have been sur veyed, to look to their filings, as neg lect in this matter often leads to trouble and serious loss. By application to the Register they can find out whether their townships have been surveyed and ob tain all necessary instructions as to how to proceed to secure title to their en tries. Rio Grande Bridare. Socorro is bidding heavily for the White Oaks trade. The citizens of that enterprising city are agitating the ques tion of building a bridge across the riv er at that place. If this enterprise is carried out, as it likely will be, it will greatly facilitate trade between those two points. A toll road ;s being com pleted and unless the people of Las Ve gas arc awake to their interests a good portion of the trade of the Oaks will be turned in tho direction of Socorro. This result of course would bo good for So corro but rough on Las Vegas, anil in order to compete with that city the same energy in fixing the roads will have to be shown by Las Vegas, as has been by tho people of the valley city A mail route is what is needed and can be had by working for it. FE4NT OF Ul'ADAM'PE. An Animal RHislou FratlvAi.or An Iran Oriclii. tinunenrlniToHlny at 1'natodrl .Norte and Extending; to the 25th. The great Feast of Our Lady of Guad alupe commences at Paso del Norte, Mexico, to-day. It has heretofore been celebrated in Vera Cruz and the City of Mexico, but with the advent of the rail road the Mexicans have been making extra preparations for this feast at Paso del Norte, with the expectation of at tracting a large number of Americans. The bull pen, in which the bull lights are to take place, cost $3,500 we are to'd. It used to be that money to carry on the festivities was annually collected from the people, but of late years the city has taken charge of the arrange ment and the riht of management lias been sold to a committee of citizens. These festivals have never before been within easy access to Americans and a larjre number will undoubtedly attend. Round trip tickets from all points along the A. T. & S. F. are being sold at half rates. The fare from Las Vegas to El Paso and return is $3G. ITS OIUGIN. On the 9th day of December, 1531, an Indian named Juan Diego, was travel ing to the city of Mexico to attend mass. On his way he saw on the top of a hill a cloud, and above it something like a rainbow. His attention was attract ed twit by a voice out of the cloud calling his own name, and he went up the hill and saw what seemed to be the Virgin Mary herself. She declared to him that it was hcr'intention to have a church built right on that spot, and and that she would give protection to all natives who honored her. She commanded him to go to the Bishop of Mexico, Juan Zuniarraga, and relate to him all that had happen ed. The Indian sought the bishop, and after considerable trouble to rain ad mittance-succeeded in speaking with him and related what he had seen and heard. The bishop, giving the matter no consideration, said he would think of it, and-dismissed hint. The next day the Indian passed by the same place, and again seeing the apparition, told the Virgin Mary what had taken place. She told him to re turn to Mexico City and again tell the bishop what had happened. The In dian started but he found that an uncle, Juan Bernardino, had been taken sick, and instead of going to sec the bishop he started to see his uncle, taking an other road so as not to see the appari tion. But he encountered it again, and the Virgin told hint not to be anxious about his uncle, as he was cured of the disease, but to again proceed to the bishop and relate what he hail seen, lie went and found him much more interested than formerly, but neverthe less asked the Indian for some super natural sign, before commencing work on the church. The Indian returned to the virgin and told her that the bishop would not erect tho church unless he clearly saw that it was really a heavenly inspira tion. The virgin then told him that she would give such a sign, nnil on the 13th of December she told Juan Diego to go to the top of a certain hill where he would find fresh roses growing, and to take them to the bishop and tell hi in that the roses were the sign. He did so, putting them in his cloak and carry ing them to the bishop. A he handed the roses to the bishop, so the tradition runs, a picture of the virgin as she ap peared to the Indian was discovered on the cloak where the roses had touched it. It was impossible to tell, by looking at it, whether the picture had been painted or woven, and the bishop saw clearly that it was the will of the Vir gin Mary to have the church erected there. The picture was taken to a private chapel for a while, where tlie people began to go and admire the wonder, and pray for needs. In the course of time the church was erected at the place where the apparition was seen, about three miles north of the City of Mexico, and a small town, Guadalupe, sprung up around it. Pilgrims came from great distances to worship the image of the virgin, and the annual re ligious festival, the "Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe," originated from this source. THE HiOGUAMME. On the first evening the city is to be decorated and illuminated. The amusement consists of games, music and dancing. On December 11th, tho Pueblo Indians begin their dance in full costume, and continue all day and all night. On December Hth and 15th the bull fights commence. The bulls, the finest and most ferocious that could be found, have been brought up to Paso del Norte from the State of Chihuahua. The fighters, who are to be dressed in full Mexican costume and mounted on the best Mexican horses, are the best and most experienced wh could be found in Chihuahua. An amphitheater has been erected on a high piece of ground near the Mexican garrison, on the plaza and near the cathedral, which will seat about 8,000 people, with a grand music stand and stall for all kinds of refreshments. During the whole festival many in teresting nnd novel amusements will take place, such as burro races, proces sions, chicken fights, Mexican soldier parades, etc. On Christmas evening the hill-tops and mountains will be illu minated by the Indians. -Yesterday's blizzard was one of the worst of the season. Tho wind com- menced at an early hour in the morn ing and continued with unabated fury during the entire day. The dust was whirled about at a fearful rate and those who were so unlucky as to have to be-out in it got their eyes and ears full of dust. Rush Holmes' ice house was blown down and several window lights in several houses were blown out. noHENTic mrr.LK iit. Aggravated n f lion. Wife Ieer- Front the Kansas City Journal we glean the particulars of the desertion of his wife by a Fort Union soldier at To peka. Mrs. C. C. Livingston, w ife of a sergeant in the regular army, stationed at Fort Union, near Las Vegas, is the victim of man's perfidy this time. She was married to him at Las Vegas, in 1878, but his jealousy was aroused by what he believed to be improper famil iarity on her part with officers who were his sufA.iors. They quarreled and separated after only a few months of wedded life. She went to Daven port, Iowa, "'w here she had an uncle She remained there until a short time ago, when she went to Kansas City and found employment in a millinery es tablishment. More recently she wont to Atchison. An unusual feature in this case is that the separated wife and husband kept up correspondence d ur ina their separation, and when Ser geant Livingston arrived at Fort Leav enworth the other day with a military prisoner, he resolved to go on to Atch ison and see his wife. They kissed and made up and resolved to try over again. They were both happy in find ing the love they had lost, and won dered how they could ever have con sented to live apart from each other. They came to Topeka, and Thursday they drove about the city happy as two young lovers. That night Sergeant Livingston gave his wife $300, saying he was going out for a little while, and was afraid he might lose it. She didn't like the idea of his deserting her so soon for associates, among whom he didn't think his money would be safe. She knew that he either went to the gambling table or some place even worse, for her honor as a wife. But she made no complaint. The next Fri dayhe was about to mail a letter to a friend in Davenport, and was in the act of enclosing her photograph, when he, suspecting that she was writing to a man, grew very jealous, and very an gry. She was vexed at this, and offer ed no explanation, whereupon he went into a great rage ami demanded Ins money, declaring that lie had had enough of her. She gave the money back to him, refusing to retain a cent. He pocketed it all, and went at once to the denot and took the train for Las Vegas. Her trunk had previously been sent to Las Vegas; so that the result of her second adventure with the man whose name she bears is that she is only left penniless among strangers but has also lost her wardrobe. Her father Geo. Ilolman, formerly of Las Vegas.is dead, and her mother has married again and is living in Las Vegas. Her name is Howe and Mrs. Livingstone will appeal to her, the only friend to whom she can go for help. Míe is re solved to be avenged upon her faithless husband. Her love has turned into the most intense hatred and a desire for re venge for her wrongs. She is only 18, a dark-eyed blonde,a rare but fascinating beauty, and apparently very gay. but she denies ttiatshe was ever unfaithful to her husband in thought or deed. Thu President's Message. We were greatly disappointed in not being able to lay before our readers the President's message yesterday morning, but it was no fault of ours. The fault was in the telegraph compa ny. The commercial wire was down and the report was sent over the rail road wire. The railroad claimed pre cedence on this wire and cut it through, leaving out the loop which connects the Western Union ollice and of course we ceuld not get a line. This is the result of an indefinite understanding between the railroad and the Western Union. We were the sufferers, how ever. Monday night the press operator was on a round-up with the boys and we got but little report ot importance, and Tuesday night the railroad cut us out. The only satisfaction we got out of these two nights was paying for the report. cnth of Mrs. Tltlow. Mrs. Jennie M. Titlow died, on Tues day at Los Alamos at 20 minutes past 13 o'clock at the age of 23 years, 11 days. She leaves a family of four young children and her husband to mourn her loss, the youngest child being only ten days old. She had the best of medical attention, Drs. Shout and Severson attending her during her illness until the last moment, but it was the will of God to take her from her loved ones on earth. Her parents and relatives reside in Maryland and will be sadly surprised at her untimely death. Baltimore papers please copy. Quilian Arrentrd. Officer Jilson, of the East Side police, yesterday received a telegram from the deputy sheriff of Santa Fe county to the effect that Quilian, one of the es caped jail birds, had been arrested in Santa Fe. This is the first of the squad to bo arrested and the reward of 11,000 will bo'hared among tho officers in strumental in his arrest. It is likely other recapturers will follow in quick succession.
