The Grant county collector collect
ed more taxes In .December than any
county collector in the State. He
remitted to the State treasurer, as
the state's portion of the taxes col
lected, 130,229.04. Luna county re
milted for the same period the sum
of $19,487 21. Judging by (lie way the
taxes come in there is some money In
the southern part of the state.
The postal situation at Silver City,
regarding the parcel post business to
'Mogollón was so serious that the
Fourth assistant postmaster general,
who has charge of the star routes,
such as that between Silver City and
Mogollón, came on from Washington
to personally investigate the case. It
is reported that Fourth Assistant
Blakeslee assured C. R. Marriott that
the department would reimburse him
for the extra weight carried.
Some years ago the Southern Pa
clfJo changed, the name of a station
west of here from San Simon to
Simon. Recently the people of that
flourishing town petitioned the rail
road to change it back to San Simon,
as the postottlce was San Simon, the
town and the Valley had always been
known as San Simon, and if the
station bore the same name it would
help in advertising. A bulletin has
been issued announcing that after
February 1, the station would be
known as San Simon.
The Duncan Arl.onlan, after a dis
appearance of some months, arrived
again this week. It had lost its pri
vilege for second class postage, and
each copy bore a one cent stamp. It
recently put In a bid for doing the
county printing, and the bid was so
low the printing was awarded to it,
but Editor Kelley, of the Clifton Era,
has asked the court for an injunction
prohibiting the supervisors from
granting the printing to the Arlzon
lan, as It was not a legal paper, under
the laws of Arizona.
The democratic central committee
had its meeting Thursday of last
week, to decide wlio should be ap
pointed postmaster at Silver City,
and consider the Lordsburg situation.
The committee decided on Brumback,
of the Independent. Captain Spence
of Central, is also a candidate for the
ofllce, and rests on his personal ac
quaintance and friendship with Post
master General Burleson. Thecaptain
was invited to make hlsshowlng to the
committee and told the committee
that he would not bother. He did not
want Its endorsement. He would get
the otllce in spite of what the com
mittee would do. The three can
didates from Lordsburg each present
ed his case and made hlsshowlng,
whereupon they .were invited to go
outside and sit down while the com
mittee considered their cases. In a
few minutes a representative of the
committee came out and told.. Messrs.
Ownby and Gervalse to go home and
go to work at their old jobs and told
Mr. Hardin he was elected, in spite
. of his being a citizen of Arizona. One
of the candidates suggested leaving
the decision of a primary to be held
in Lordsburg. Chairman Walton has
been urging the primary for many
years, but on this occasion he looked
coldly on the proposition.

the statement shows the bank Is in a
solid and prosperous condition.
Roy Taylor, who has had charge of
the work on the Borderland this win
ter, has done a good job, and there is
a fast piece of road from the Luna
county line to a point about nine
mllej west of Lordsburg. He has
fixed the drainage system so the road
will not cut as badly as ltdidinihe
pat. Whom tlia witar lias to go
over the road he has built bridges,
put in culverts, or built the road so
that It goes In and out of the arroya,
and made the bottom of the arroya
solid with rocks and cement, and
building substantial wings, so they
will not wash out. Where the road
was sandy adobe dlri has been put in,
and where there was too much adobe
sand has been put in, making a per
fect sand-clay road, which is the best
cheap road In the world, and of which
thousands of miles were built in this
country the last year, according to
the government report. The road Is
built to the point in the Animas val
ley where the Borderland turns south
towards Granite Gap, and there the
money got low, and the work was
stopped. It is to be hoped that the
road commissioners will make ar
rangements to complete this road
in the near future, for the Border
land traille .Is getting heavy, and it
will be the' best road to town for
many of the residents cf the Animas
W. II. Small's new car has become
so time that women and children can
ride in It.- Last Sunday the car went

great institution. Little Nancy was
watching her sister who was trying
to catch a Ush, when making misstep
site went into the water, which was
deep enough so she was completely
submerged. Twenty miles from home
with not a dry thread on her was not
a pleasant prospect for a baby. Mrs.
Williams, the Separ postmistress
heard of Nancy's predlctment. She
has a baby about the same size, and
ottered dry clothes for Nancy, which
she was glad to get into. She caught
no cold, but does not want another
such a bath.

George Wood and hir family are in
town from Globe this week. George
is enjoying his vacation, and is figur
ing on going down into Arkansas,
where he owns a farm, and If it looks
better to him than the floor of a
freight house he may abandon his
work in the freight house at Globe,
and work the farm. The one great
advantage a freight house has over a
farm is that Che paydays come reg
ularly, once a month, no matter whe
ther it rains or not, while on a farm
payday comis but once a year, and
hog cholera, floods or droughts are
libio to postpone It for a year or so.
The El Taso chamber of commerce
is always working to induce people to
come to that town to live. General
Scott is an enthusiastic member of
the chamber of commerce, and this
week made a record of inducing im
migration into El Paso. He increased
the population 4, (00 this week. The
quantity was good, but the quality
was not up to the El Taso standard.
It consisted of the federal army of
northern Mexico, which was chased
across the Rio Grande atOjlnag i, and
for fear some of the immigrants may
not want to stay in El Taso, General
Koott hna pot them all herded in a
barb wire enclosure, which Is bull
high and hog tight. He is taking no
chance with them.
