It is a valuable publication ill add larirelv to the business importance of Las Vegas. A public meeting has been called at the new town this evening, to con sider a town organization. A muni cipal organization is a subject which demands a careful consideration. They often prove expensive. Some kind of an organization will be need ed, however, and it all pull together to organizo one town out of all the ctllcmc-nls on both sides of the river ihus combining iu one city the wealth juid population of the community, it wil likely prove successful, bcnf.cial :nd important.

TUN ORKAT JlLUÍsI'., .,' The country along the road from La Glorieta, or Ilibbards ranch, as for east as Menial presents some singular features which L iloiiibt rcnjerribf rto have overseen written uru 'Ón the south oflhe road an almost unbroken blull extends the entire distance, 'This bluff is several hundred feet in height, of disintegrated rcdsaud stone looking from the ro.ul exactly like the red clay, to which it will change in time. A strata of white, or light sand 6touo caps the bluff, forming an almost per pendicular wall ". throughout , ita entire length. Below this layer Iho bank slopes sufficiently to pcriiiit'a man to make the ascent though only bv severe exertion. On the north are Ihc foot hills which gradually slope up to the apex of the mountain, chain away to the north. On the northwest are the jagged peaks of the range between the Tecos and Santa Fe rivers. The valley, if such it can bo c died, between the foot hil s and bluff is comparatively level though occasionally rising into hills and again descending to lower levels. The road is generally smooth but occasionally crosses a point or ridge which served as a gentle reminder of t lie geological ages. Early in the day a pcquliarly shaped rock, apparently in the middle of the valley, not far in front, capping a hill which appeared to slope gently up on all sides, attracted attention and will be mentioned again farther on. In many places along Ihc road set tlcmciits had been attempted. Some of the houses corrals and sfablc3 were of heavy 1 gs evidently costing a great amount ot labor, but nearly all had been abandoned. 1 he soil appears to be fertile and the settlers were driven away either by the scarcity of water or possibly by disputes with claimants of land grants.

An explosion occurred in tunnel No. 3 ou the narrow gauge railroad between San Jose and Santa Cruz, in California, early ou the morning of the I8th. From reports concerning the matter, the explosion seems to have happened as follows: A blast was let off twenty seven hundred feet from the mouth of the tunnel which caused an' explosion of gas generated by the felteritig of coal oil through the roof and sides of the tunnel. On learning of I lie disaster, twenty one Chinamen, rushed iuto the tunnel with orchas to aid their contrails, when they had penetrated about 1,500, their torches caused, a second explo sion more violent than the first shak ing the mountain to its very center. Tle first took place'at 11:50 p. m., the second atirió a. in.' and the third at 1;22 a. m. They were changing shifts at the time the first explosion took place. Seventeen hiuamen have been A large number of the most promi nent citizens of Leadville assembled at Wood's opera house to consider the possibility of a freight blockade through the bad weather and roads. A committee was anpointod to draft resolutions. During an informal dis cussion which was had at this tnsct ing, it was estimated that the loss to Leadville, in the way of extra freight, resulting from the Grand Cation con troversy,, was fully $100,000. The resolutions declare that the city of Leadville and mining camps adja cent thereto, contain a population of over forty thousand who are fed and supplied from distant markets through the inerchauls and business houses of Leadville, and, that it has become apparent that the South Park railroad is uuder the most favorable circum stances, utterly unable to transport the supplies necessary to sustain said population, and, that Leadville and surrounding country will be subjec ted to grcnt inconveniences, sufieiing and actual famine through the want of provisions and supplies. It was also'resolved that a new line of railroad can-be built tip the Ar kansas valley, in 40 days from tin date of beginuing, to a point ftom which supplies can be furnished at comparatively cheap rates. Judge Hal ett, of the United States district court for the district of Colo rado, was requested, should it be iu the power of the court, and consis tent with the ends- of justice to all parties in interest, that immediate action be taken in the premises and thus afford the relief asked for.

A report came down the lino yes terday morning that, Deputy Sherifi Henry Basset t and a cow boy had got into some kind ofa difficulty night before last at Otero, and had shot each other.

It seems that the cow bov liad taken on a little too much bug juice aud was on the war path and wanted to shoot somebody. The Deputy sherifi', had ordered hint to bo quiet, but instead of obeying or ders, he told the oluccr that ho was hunting a shoot, both men then drew their weapons and fired with the fatal results, above enumerated. : -- 3 A Sew Sect.

Dispatches received here from Los Pinos, dated November 17th indicate that the peace commission is making rather slow progress. But a short session was belli on Monday. Ouray failing to come in until Y2 o'clock. When he did como contrary to his usual cuMom he wore his Indian clothing, lie was very sullen and indicated a decided ill feeling towards General Adams who ho said was incompetent as u commissioner because ns he alleged of his knowledge of Iho Utes aud ot their affairs. Ouray maintained that jack hud done nothing wrong but had fail ed to come to Los Pinos on account of ill feeling towards members of his tribe. Ouray proceeded to slate that be wished Adams tobe recalled á-m I expressed his desire to go with ;i nuniberof the Ute chiefs of Washington to lay the matter before Schurz. i The Omaha Herald is not discour aged. Dr. Miller is a very hopeful man. ScmaUa Granger. Hopeful men, who hang on to faith in the right, generally live to see the causes they espouse triumph, in the long run. The democratic party won a great popula verdict for a right eous cause in 187G, but was robbed of its constitutional right to govern the country by wide-spread conspiracy and monstrous crime. If it hascom mited hari-kari for Iho time through blunders in leadership, through rival ambitions and ruinous faction, un changed faith in principles that aro more powerful than men make us not only hopeful but serenely confident that great wrongs will he righted, that gigantic crimes will be punished, and that the cloud of to-day will giro place to sunshine to-morrow. The recent political tornado of sec tional hate which Iho new issues that several candidates for presidency and about forty candidates for vicc-p.'esi-dency fashioned to kill off Mr. Tilden will give place to calm, and also to a reaction.

The Archduchess Christine has made formal official renunciation of all claims to 1 he succession to 1 he 1 hro no of Austria, without which her marriage with King Alphonso would not be permitted.
