A Drive Down the Pecos.
A week ago a Gazttte reporter
started on a tour down the Pecos riv
er and through Hie northern porlion
of Lincoln. Tins morning wai clear
and a ligh! Indian summer Mrioku veil -cd
the summits oil lie muintaiiis with
that peculiarly romantic appearance
common to this patón of the year.
From La Vegas to Autou Chico it is
mostly a downhill drive, hence the
distance is soon passed over. Mr.
Hays has a ranch about half way,
which is known a Apache Sprints.
Mr. Hays isx well-lr-dostockman nud
is beautifying ids yards and gardens
more aud more, as time and meaus
The groves and orchards along the
Tecos, just before reachiug Anton
Chico are beautiful in the extreme,
aud one of the best views of Hermits
peak anywhere to be had can be ob
tained from this point. There seems
to be one inrneuse canon the whole
way up and the lofty peak aud rug
ged cliffs staud out in bold relief from
the main range of the Rocky moun
tains, which run along tha northwest.
Th town is in a prosperous condition
being brought up by the general tide
of prosperity which is now sweeping
over this territory.
From Anton Chico to Puerto de
Luna there is but little tobe described
as there are but few settlements. The
valley of the Pecos between these t wo
points is not very wide as the river
has cut a deep channel i nits rapid de
cent from the mountains. The prai
ries howeveiyind the grass are good. It
has not been pastured off much since
its prolific growth this summer, much
ef the stock having been driven south
in the early part of the season on ac
count of the scarcity of water, and has
not yet been driven back.
Puerto de Luna is beautifully situ
ated in a beautiful place, surrounded
by hills aud as the name indicates, the
valley at this point is shaped like a
half moon. From this point I lie
stage roads cut asrobs a rough rolling
prairie intersected by the "Jose do
Dios," Canon Colorado and the Ala
mo Gordo creeks. There is but little
timber in this part of the country.
Mesquite wood, however, is very
pleutifu', the roots of which make
the best of fire wood. This peouliar
shrub is loaded down with beans this
season, and although, the late Victo
rio mar hare enjoyed them as.a means
of subsisiauce tin y have not a very
John Gerhardt keeps the next sta
tion and a finer garden than was
grown by Mr. Gerhardt during the
past summer cannot be lound any
where. Almost every imaginable
vegetable cau be found growing in
the garden, which is watered by a
large spring which flows out of the
hills above the station and runs
quietly over a gently sloping little
valley. And whether rain falls or not
this is a beautiful flowering little
Eden all the time. At Sunny Side,
the proprietor, Mr. M. Rudulph was
busily engaged ill shearing his sheep
and making arrangement a for his
winter school, which he intends to
teach, lie now has a large number of
names on his list and thinks the school
will be well attended during the com
ing term. Old Fort Sumner is pur--ly
a creation by the hand of man, and
a magnificent place it is too. Taken
from the hands of nal lire a broad
level plain, with nothing growing
thereon but Gamma grass, the Gov
ernment placed a large dam in the
Pecos river several miles above the
Fort and run a flood of water over it.
The Navajo Ind.aus were kept here
at that time. The) were put to work
and made to woik out. their denial
salvation by digging ditches, planting
trees and building drives. For a
distance of lour miles above the post,
there are two long lines of large cot
tonwoodc, the leaves of which tl'.e fall
Yrosts had just tinged with yellow.
On the right mid left of the road
were the old fields, which, at one time
were farmed, bu' at present are run
ning to wuBte and growing up with a
yonug growth of cottonwoods. Sev
eral orchards have been planted out,
oue of which is looking well. It
would be difficult to find a prettier,
site lor a town. There is but little
business being done at tins point, as
most of the inhabitants are engaged
in stock raising. From Sumner to
Bosque Grande, night covered the
lace of t)ie earth, therefore but little
can be snid a to its merits or denier
its, but from the number of mosqui
tos, that continually tried to form a
close acquaintance, it is undoubtedly
a mild climate. An occasional wolf
would also cuino along to tuke a sur
vey of the party, and then quietly
pass on. At Bosque Grande, tic
Pecos vallcv is about three miles
wide, ami richer fanniug lands can
not be found auyw hire. Ti e climate
is warm aud the seasons long, hence
almost all kinds of J he ccri.ils can be
produced- Gamma grass, in this fer
tile alley, grew to the height of three
feet and as thick as the domestic
graces commonly grown in the states.
Water is plenty and but little of the
land is taken up. Allot" it being yel
open for pre-emption and homestead.
Here ton, there is a large growth of
timber, which gives tone to the land
scape. (To be continued.)
The Xew Mexican published sever
al months ago an account of the kill
ing of a prospector in Conejos county
Colorado, by two Mexicans, named
respectively Gallegos and Vaidoz,
and also mentioned the capturo of
the two men in Albuquerque, and
their subsequent removal to Conejo3
by Sheriff Carril!. It has now to an
nounce the death of the two men at
the hands of a lynching party. The
information was brought to the city
yesterday by a man who came direct
from Conejos. lie says that one
night less than a week ago. a body of
armod men entered the jail and tak
t he t wo men out swung them up to
the limbs of a neighboring tree. The
lynching was done quietly and clean
ly, the bodies of the dead men telling
the tr.le of the night'? doings to the
inhabitants of Coucjos next morning.
Yesterday Fred Weston, the buck
board driver in the laic mad robbery
near Fort Sumner, and Mrs. Devla
vare the passenger, were arrested by
Mr. Morley, the IT. S. detective and
chief of police Becker. They are, we
believe, suspected of robbing the
mails themselves. The arrests were
made quietly and as there was little
stir,but a email amount of information
was elicited. The two were about to
take the train for Santa Fe when the
officers bounced them just as they
were ready to get aboard. The
groundr, for the arrest we suppose
will be made clear on the preliminary
hearing. Weston was taken to the
lockup for the night and the woman
was taken to the St. Nicholas and
kept under guard. We await devcl
opeiaems in the case.
The directors of the new hol"l met
yesterday evening. Present: Chas.
Blandían!, J. Roscuwald, Chas. II
f eld, Bcnigo Romero and Andres
Dold. Mr. Blauchard was authorized
to procure the necessary seal for (he
company, Louis Sulzbaeher was ap
pointed attorney for the company to
hold the office during the term of the
present directors and no legal docu
ments of any kind to be acted upon
until he has examined and givcu his
opinion thereon. The plan submitted
by Mr. Wheelock for the foundation
was adopted excepting to enlarge the
kitchen cellar. The first floor plans
were also adopted. It was agreed to
advertise in both the daily papers for
bids for the foundation.
