Fautor Gazette: Before leaviwg
Las V gas many promises were exac
ted from ma to write all about the
country when I got here, to see for
tiurselves, that the truth might be
known as near as .osible about the
termiinw of the new railroad. How
ever the only sure way to know "all
about" a place is to route and seo as
views on t'.ie prospect of a place disa
gree. We reached here the middle of
August when the heat was intense,
ninety-eight in the shade in the day
time and the same at night. It
seemed to tne as hot as Yuma is re
ported tobe. When you look at the
map you think, "why Guaymas can't
be so hot, it's not in the tropic?, right
on the gulf, aud they must get a sea
breeze." I said the same two months
ago bul I found Guaymas hotter than
the tropics for this reason :
The town is built on a sandy strip
lying along the bay, surrounded,
hemmed in, shut tip by cliffs are quite
barren, so the sun's rays ore reflected
upon the sandy streets and bare walls
with double force till the eyes are
pained o look out. The entire ab
sence of vegetation makes matters
worse, an evil easily corrected, but re
quiring years to remedy. The bay is
cut it) with inlands and peninsulas so
that our view of the water is a little
lake apparently and the sea breeze
don't reach the town.
There is an erroneous idea that peo
p'e don't sweat in Mexico, but where
do they weat. more? I have seen
men come in rom work, driving far
instance, with sweat dropping from
chin, nose and ears and clothes satu
rated. The natives don't work in
Milliliter, which i ti ; more, sensible way
than our., nuldng around. But they
tell us that nine mouths of the year it
is tiie loveliest climate in the world.
That remaius to be seen and if it ever
does cool off I will write to you again
i;i Xew Mexico.
There is little new ia customs,
hotues and people. The same flat
adobe houses, but the windows are
large iron grated openings reaching to
the floor for the double purpose of
keeping out thieves and letting iu air.
There re nu iire places or stoves as
the winters are warm, J&nuaryis the
season for oranges while now there is
nothing in the vegetable line and only
a lew very veet fruits which to me
are sickening.
i he road is progressing finely. It
bogins with a wharf on one of the
small isl.iiids, ruus along its side,
crossing a bridge to the main land,
turns norih-cast into the hills to
wards llerrnesillj, leaving the present
Guuvmas to the west a mile or
so. A new town is aoon to be
where the track r -aches the laud, but
the "boom" is not apparent yet, but
as before when it "cools oil"' this fall
they look for a rush. What is to
make a boom is not told us, but we
are nevertheless looking for a biy
one. Opinions' regarding the future
ot (iiiaymas differ greatly, some
claiming the mineral wealth of Sono
ra is boundless, others that the taxes,
duties and climate will forever debar
its being a large city. Duties are so
exci stive even from state to state,
taxes on Miver and gold heavy, the
climate is peculiarly oppressive, coup
led with the heat, there is a something
the thermometer don't record. Its
debilitating cflect on all people, the
fatal results to youiu children, aud
then that dUease, Prickly heat. It
first appears in small patches of white
watery pimples, soon turns very red,
spreading and causing such a burning
aud itelyng those having if almost go
wild at times, llera few weeks it
dries up and you scale off in white
scales, like scarlctina, and the Mexi
cans toll ir.c they have three courses
each summer of this annoying erup
tion, while tlic Americans now here
l.ave Buffered all summer, more or
less. A gentleman irom the East In
dies as they haye Prickly heat
there but Guaymas Prickly heat in
much worse, as all things here are
different from any place in the known
world. Please though, bear in mind
(uayinas is not all Sonora. I write
only what I know, inland the coun
try may be fertile, vo. elation, rank
breezes' may blow, water flow in
streams, there may be food, perhaps
the nights are cool, mosquitos may
have deserted plains and mountains
for Guaymas, and life may not heal
burden. Wc shall soon see, as the
road will he thirty miles north by
January next. Yaqui Indians are
the laborers, they are a very hard
working people who have a reserva
tion iouth of here that is well farmed
they are quiet and self supporting,
occasionally fighting the mexicana for
their rights, being bitter enemies and
always victorious. Once 'twas de
cided to bring Chinamen here, now
'lis thought unnecessary the Indians
work so well. In disposition and
(habits are much like the Pueblos of
New Mexico. When emigration
comes in, capital to make improve
ments, trees planted, ships arriving
and business lively, como to Guay
inas. Now 'twould bo hard to con
ceive of a more uncomfortable place.
A. M. M.
They brought us civilization and
progress aud now we have it. The
bones of our fathsrs, mothers, sisters,
brothers and chi'dren were exhumed
to satisfy the wish of a person to
identify the remains of a relativo who
is reported to have worked his way
through from the east to this place
free of charge and without a regular
ticket in a box car. It is reported
that the man died of suffocation a day
after having been attended by one
Dr. Fields and was burried in the
cast cemetery without even the
knowledge of the clergy that has for
the past forty years had charjre of the
same, and now some unknown person
comes and disturbs the remains of our
dearest relations, in order to find a
corpse supposed to be the one above
mentioned. We will not submit to
these outrages, and the parties imme
diately concerned with the matter
arc herewith notified that we, who
have fathers, sisters, brothers and
mothers burried in the cemetary
above mentioned, will not let the act
rest as it is is but will take proper
steps to maintain our rights.
Many relatives of the disturbed re
mains. X.

The lellowing letter was addressed
to a East Vegas firm and certainly
calls loudly upon the sympathies ef
Las Vegas, October, 17. Gentle
men: You were very kind to me when
I was a free man, and that is the rea
son I write this letter asking you to
do au act of charity, and send me
something to protect me from the
cold, if it is Mothing but a pair of
socks. I have n friends or money,
aud have appealed to them in charge,
but have received uothing from them.
I may not have long to live but would
like to be protected from the cold
blast of winter while alive. To be
imprisoned and chained is hard but
with proper clo hiuglceuld bear it
very well; if you see fit to send me
anything, any of the hack drivers will
brink it to the jail. IIopiDg gentle
men, that you will help me, I remain
very truly, Yours,
James Allen.
The track of the ltio Grande, Mex
ico aud Pacific is naw laid seventeen
miles south of San Marcial. The track
layers are progressing at the rale of
one mile aud a half or two miles a
day, and it is now estimated that
communication will be made with the
Southern Pacific at El Pso by the
first of January. The track is laid
from Guaymas towards the border a
distance of eighteen miles and will
reach the border in time to meet the
track from this side. Chief Engineer
Robinson and Mr. Ilurd, of the law
department of the A. T. & S. F., hae
gone down to El Paso for the purpose
of selecting the two directors resiueut
in the state required by law, with the
proper stock books and articles of in
corporation already prepared. After
the selection of these two directors,
Mr. Kurd will proceed to Austin aud
place the articles of incorporation on
lile in order that the road may enter
the state as soon as it arrives at the
border, without any delay on account
of the non-fulfillment of any legal con
ditions. New Mexican.
