Desiring to sec the freight route
from White Oaks to Las Vegns, ar
rangeuients were made with a gen
tleman bv the name of Till is who was
coming through, and enrlv Tuesday
morning, October 17th the party con
sistinir of five gent lemen in all, pulled
out of White Oaks. The route taken
runs nearly east until the old Fort
Stanton freight road was readied,
which is about ten miles oul;froni the
junction ol the two roads the course
of the traveler is almost norih and
passes almost directly through the
center of the group of mountain
known as the Jiearrillas. These
mountains are known to be full ot
gold They were prospected and
manv rich finds made long before the
llomcstako was thought of. The on
ly drawback in this district is the
lack of water, b'it. for which dilligent
search is now being made, Doctor
Siitliu having spent considerable timt
t here, during several months past try
ing to obtain water by boaring. .1
llocradle lives on the north slope ol
these mountains and has secured suf
licicnt water for all ordinary purpo
ses by making artificial lakelet I
means of a succession of dams across
a large canon. From lucradles to A!

During this enure instance there is

I The lii's t days travel brought us io
small lake just, cast of the Matizan
mountains where camp was strtic!
for the night. The next morning our
line of march was resumed, with
nothing more to relieve the monotony
than had occurred the previous day.
Just at sun ciown aikiui wens was
reached, There is a lit tie plazu here
and considerable slock is kept
Quite a large lake lies to the east,
which at present i full. The borders
of the lake are cuvercr1 with a deposit

a cloud like smoke with every gtis
of wind. This lit tie cam) is one o
the principal .(oponía' places on tin
roaJ to or from the White Oaks. The
well at this place always affords an
abundance of water, which is very
good though a little brack Uh to the
taste. For about three miles north) of
this place, the road is quite sandy.
Between alkali wells and the Peder
uals, several large herds of antelope
were seen. They however, sniffed
danger afar off and lit out at a lively
rate across the rolling prairies. Pe
dernal is a cluster of three or four
barren peaks composed entirely of
flint rock, as the name indicates. Wa

This is one of the finest p-'itious of

miles before reaching the Pecos river
we came to Lewellings ranch. Here
a v ell has been dug and an abund
ance ot water obtained.
Mr. Leweüing, of east Las Vegas,
s Mocking this ranch and ere long
will have one of the most desirable
tieccs of property in the country, as
the well was dug during the terrible
drouth and will therefore always af
ford an abundance of water foralarge
amount of stock. Here we also came
across one of the manv I'.uckeve mow
ers sold by O. !.. Houghton during
t lie past season.
From Lewelling's ranch to Las Ve
as there is nothing special to attract
attention with the exception oí the
Pecos river, where a tole gate is
This road is good throughout its
entire length and is much nearer than
any other, being only about 1G5 miles
by it from this city to the White
Oaks. It is a long ways between
neighbors on this road, the ranches
being from 30 to 40 miles apart.
Water can undoubtedly be i'ouud
in many places along it. Several new
wells in addition to the old ones al
ready established greatly tend to con
centrate the the entire trade of White
Oaks at Las Vegas. This trade is
important and is worth looking after
It is growing and other elties will
strive to turn it in other directions. It
is ours now and will alvvavs remain
so, if a little effert is put forth.
The lower Pecos and the White
Uaiv? are rich and growing
countries. It will be but a lew
months or a few vears at least until
the freight carried to that countr
will be simply immense and tlrj iirst
railroad that runs into it will reap
It is a magnificent field, and the cit
izens of Las Vegas c-hould make an
unanimous effort to have the A. T. &
S. F. road or the narrow guage to
build a line of road into that country.
A line could easily be constructed as
the grades are easy and tie timber is
plenty. There would be large
amounts oí freight both ways, as it
would be much cheaper for the peo
ple of Las Vegas to ship the grain
and hay produced by the fertile agri
cultural lands of the lower Pecos,
from that country instead of from the
States. Then, too. the money produc
ed by the mines would be kept in the
country and not shipped away as at
present. This Is a matter that the
business men of Las Vegas and north
ern New Mexico should take in hand
at ouce and push .with energy. Everv
influence possible should bo brought
I o bear, to secure this desirable end,
for no o'lier enterprise would
so effect ua'l y settle the
future status of this city.
We have thus attempted to give a
description of the country passed
over during a three week's trip down
the Pecós and return. It has neces
sarily been very much condensed, as
there was so much seen and so much
worthy of note, that had it been given
in full, several articles the length of
the present would not have sufficed to
give the facts in the case.
We have simply this to s y in clos

Mr. T. W. Garrard and his son
James Garrard came up on Thursday
evening from their sheep ranch at
Los Chupaines. They have finished
shearing and their this fall's clip
amounts io 2.1,000 pounds of first
class quality of wool. This amount
figured at 20 cents per pound makes a
sum total ol $4,600. Now when it is
remembered that another clip equally
as good as this one will be made
again in I he spring, some idea of the
profit of wool growing in thiscouu
try can be formed. Besides the two
crops of wool annually obtained, Mr.
Garrard reared about 4,000 lambs,
which at "weaning time are worth
$1,00 per head. The expenses arc al
so much less than in any other busi
ness considering the large returns.
