We nro rarely willing to concodo that any place in the southwest osn go ahead or Albuquerque in any lino or public en terprise, but we are forced to concede that Lna Vrgua hn got one step in ad vance of ua in tho matter of providing a building for publio purposes and Las Vegiu is only a town while Albuquerque is a full lloilgod oily with all that the namo implies. They liavo bnsineee an- gncity enough at Vegus to ace that it doenn't pay to rent buildings for town purponoe, but we have not arrived at that degree of information as yot. Wo continue to pay oat eighteen hundred dollar a year for the rout of building for towu purposes but the people of La Vegas, nt tho Into election, voted id moflt unanimously, in favor or issuing bonds euough to put up n building or sufficient capacity to meet all tho de mands or the plaoe, nnd tho annual ex pense in interest will be less than is now paid by the town In rents. With regard to Albuqnorque, the ciuo now atAoda as follows: Wo are psying in rents, for the use or buildings for town purooi eighteen hundred dollars a year, and aa properly advance in value, and rents bocomo higher, this sum is lieble to increase from year to year. Eighteen hundred dollars will pay the Interest at six per oent on bonds to the amount or thirty thousand dollars. We onn sell our bonds for par nt six er oent without any difficulty, and a building which, with its ground, would cot thir ty thousand dollars just the amount we are now paying would accommo date all the city business much bettor than it is at prosout uccommodated, and would at the samo time be an ornament and au advanlago lo the city. Then why not own n city building instead of renting onef THK HKWKKrt. It is said that finding fault is one of the esaiest things In the world to do, and the fault finders In this vicinity are now giving their sieciat attention to the sowers and without any acquaintance wbatevsr with the subject they are talk ing about. The sewer system now being put in is very likely open to orlticiim, but the fault, it any, does not lie with tho contractor, but with tho engineer who planned tbo work and the board of trustees who accepted his plan. Sanitary engineering bos become a dis tinct eoienoei It is a matter which only those who have given it careful study know anything about, nod It Is a mat ter of economy for a town or city, when putting in a system of sewer, to expend the few dollars extra that may be re quired to pay for the very beat talent that can bo bad. Gentlemen who are acquainted with this subject, practically as wellVw theoretically, are of the opinion that the plan for oar sewers is open to criticism, but all tgree that tho con'.rao tor is working up to tbs letter of his con tract U doing just such work as ho agrod to do, and exactly lo tho manner In which ho agreed to do it therefore those who are Indulging la adverse criti cism of the manner in which his work is being done are oot onlv guilty of gross injustice to him, bat show themselves ignorant of tbo subject they are talking about.

Tho Springs nestlo In a canon, at the foot of towering mountain the side nf which are cov ered hero nnd thro with tal', kiately pines. It is a great health resort are fuge from tho en re nnd trials of n busi- no life, from the weariness incident to the usual hum-drum ot city existence, nnd as tho pamphlet state "from tho tyrnnny of climate" -It being cold most naturally in winter, tbo Altitude being nbout 7,000 feet alovs res level, but tho summer months nre pleasant, free from dust during the dny nud muwiuitoe at night.

The dining room of the hotel is UxH3 feet, elegantly finished in polished woods, brilliantly lighted by inoandesoeut lights, and the tables are supplied with all the substantial and dainty food that is ob lalnabln. Edward Fostnl, an educated white gentleman, is head waiter, whilo under him are n dozen polito aud oourt eouo white male waitera, and David Lockard was found to be one of them. ur. r . v . uausgher, a grauualo or an eastern medical college, is regularly sta tioned at tho Springs.
