SUNDAY. NOVEMBER 28, 1880. Hl R ru i BE. A rroiniuent Rusiues Mftn'n Vl On The Mnbjert. A few l:vs since in making the an- ... nounecinent tlutt prominent business men of Santa l'e wen' intending to branch out and establish business houses in other towns in New Mexico, we stated that if our citizens offered the proper en couragement, that those gentlemen might Ik: induced to locate in this city. Albu querque has for the past week been glorying in the thought that perhaps it might ho the fortunate point for the location of the business men of the capital. In order to find out the sense of our business men on the question a reporter of the Gazette called upon Mr. L. P. Browne, senior member of the firm of Browne & Manzanares. "Mr. Browne," queried our reporter, 'what do you think of this movement of the the merchants and bankers of Santa Fe towards Albuquerque ?" 'Xothimr serious is it?" was the re sponse of the man of busbies. Isn't it a blow at Las Vegas, sir we asked as a feeler. I cannot see it. I think that the Mssrs. Spiegelberg who are booked for Albuquerque would rather come to Las Vecriis than tro to Albuquerque. In fact I think they regard this as a better point," was the reply that surprised our reporter. "Well, why don't they come here ? ''That of course I cannot saw But have they had any encouragement? I t hink that if the people of Las Vegas gave those gentlemen to understand that they wonld be welcome, that they would come here." 'Ihe conversation falling into a run ning dialogue, Mr. Browne was kind enough to give his ideas on the subject lie expressed himself as believing that when the subject was fully examined that all woul 1 unite in sayiug tjiat it was better to build up one good town rather than take chances in several others Las Vegas has a good s ar,; ; our merch ants arc shipping, goods right p; .Santa Fe, and past Albuquerque down the Rio Grande valley. "Why, we load ed a car for Sauta Fe to-day," said Mx Browne, "and we get fully as much trade from below as to the north of us. It was encouraging to a patriotic La; Vegan to hear so shrewd a business man as Mr Browne speak so hopefully of th future of our city. "We have all the advantages of Albuquerque or any othei town in the territory, and many more besides. We are the natural center of rich and growing trade 1 rom a large ex tent of country, and there is plenty ol room for more houses than we now have to help build up a still larger trad than we now enjoy. "For my part,1' h said, "I wish they would come here and I hope that our citizens will giv them to understand that they will l. welcomed." It was amusing to watch the changes of expression on the face of a champion of Santa Fe, who was present at the interview, for the advant ages of Las Vegas as they were set fort by th' solid man of business were bombs that cut short his fusillade of minor ar guments in favor of the capital city. "But, Mr. Browne," asked our Sant Fe friend, "if you think that our busi ness men regard Las Vegas as the best point in the territory' why do they not eo'iic here ? There is Z. Staab for in stance, why doesn't he come here ?" The response was quick and right to the point, "T think that Mr. Staabthinks that this is the best point. ' Tn fact feel sure that he does." "Would you object to my telling him so?" "No ! I wish that you would." The friendly feeling exhibited by Mr Browne voices the sentiment of a large number of our prominent citizens with whom we have done on the subject, and the capitalists of Santa Fe are cordially invited tolook over the ground herein Las Vegas before placing their money in hu- iness in other parts of the territory. The mails arc all in. Tho trains cune in nearly together yesterday at about half past three o'clock. Tho occa Mon of the delay in the arrival of the train from tho south was tho difficulty of tho locomotive in pulling the train over Glorietta hill. That from tho east was obliged to wait for tho Pueblo train ut La Junta, which wan four hours late. A Sledge Hammer Blow. Las Vr.r.AS,Now 27, lsso. Editor ("Jazette: I saw in the Í Jazette of to-day an article written by some close-fisted t.nder foot, who calls himself "Jany Citizens," against incorporation. Mr. "Many Citi zens" is. I suppose, one of those who never iav a cent towards maintaining a Kilicc force sufficient to keep order in our town; in fact, never contributes ona cent towards any public improvement Ie has, of course, paid very little tax. as he shrinks out of all indirect taxes, such as police subscription, etc. We need a steam fire engine, bos.- cart, etc. the necessity of which was clearly dem onstrated by the late fire, but it could not be bought at present except through private subscription, when a few liberal men would bear all the expense. Mr. 'J"any Citizens" would of course take a back seat because he is against any thing that costs him money. As regards heavy taxes, the Legisla ture has provided for that in allowing only a certain per cent, of taxation, as Mr "Many Citizens" will find if he gets some oue to read the incorporation act for dm. I have heard othersmake remarks about NeWTown paying taxes to straight en streets in the Old Town, in caso of incorporation, which simply shows that they know nothing about city govern ment. An improvement that does not benefit tin city in general is never paid out of city funds, but is assessed only on property thereby benefited. Mr. "Many Citizens" calls those who are in favor of incorporation, "selfish land sharks," etc., etc., too numerous to mention. Who is seinsiir lie wno wishes to make this one of the best towlis in the west, where life and property are safe; or he who wishes to make mon ey, no matter how; no matter what con dition o'iijtown is in as regards safety from thieves, murderers, fire; etc? Hoping 'Many Citizens" represents only one, I remain yours, an il. Another Knilioiul Boom. It was rumored in Boston early in the week that Vanderbilt had formed an al liance with the mtnagers of Western and Southwestern railroads to control a line from the-Atlantic to the Pacific coast. Although this has been denied by some of his associates, still there üt circum stances that clearly indicate that negotia tions of this kind are pending. With a vast amount of money in governuent, bonds, easily convertible into ready cash, he would be able to checkmate Gould in one of his designs of building on to Mexico and controlling the traffic of th t country. The choice of routes seem to ie between the Northern Pacific and the Atlantic & Pacific R. II., now building. The chances are largely in favor of his interesting hims 1, in the A. & P., which will be of great benefit to us, as it will place us on the line of a great trunk line from the ocean to ocean. Our road is now looking for a Mexican connection and the Atlantic and Pacific would also bring Vanderbilt more directly into com petition with Goulu. It nothing more is on foot, it may be, that a close traffic alliance or arrangement may be made between the New York Central and Lake Shore and the Chicago, Bu lington & Quincy, and Atchison, Topeka & San ta Fe, which would secure to the first two ro ds the through traffic which the latter would bring from the Southwest and the Pacific coast.
