The Demi-Monde Must Go.
A raid was made yesterday upon the
houses of disreputable character on
Zion'a bill. This name Is given to a
considerable scope of the oity, lying on
the western verge of the mesa on which
the new town ts largely built. But the
part complained of ilea along Main
street. At present this street ia the
main artery through which commerce
flows from one side cf the city to the
other. The fact that such rookeries
have been permitted on such a street,
has long been a disgrace to Las Vegas.
Around it in all directions lie many of
the most desirable private residences.
yet the people living in these residences
nave been compelled at all Hours of toe
day to have scenes and acts of profli
gacy flaunted in their faces. At night

these things, but the ear more than
compensates by what it is made to hear;
scarcely a carousal startles tbe people
from tbelr slumbers but it may be trac
ed to or from this praticular quarter.
me reputable people wiu stand it no
longor. xesteraay a raid was maae
upon the houses, and the fallen women
were brouzbt before Justice uiibarri,
They were told that they would be pro
secuted to the full extent of the law so
long as remaining in that neighborhood,
ana tney promised to vacate before
oiubt. But what will be the good of
their going if the houses are tented again
to the same class of people in a week or
twof Here lies a large part ol the evil.
lbose wbo own or have tbe manage
ment ol tbis property sboulu refuse to
rent it to suoh characters. If they do
so ront it, they should be prosecuted for
committing a nuisance upon tbe com
muoity; and if there is no law under
which the owners and managers can be
held responsible, than let it be seen tbat
our next legislature makes such a law.
What to do with the "social evil" is
problem tbe most civilized nations have
not solved. But whether it is a licensed
traflio. as in France.or one msre'v wink
ed at, as in tbe United Stales, no where
is it permitted to piuut itself upon
the most . frequented through
fares And brazenly thrust it
self into tbe taces of respectable tann
ines if nothing else can be done, let
that property on Main street be oon
demned by the process ot law. and be
pulled down; and if the Cyprians are a
necessary eyu, let tnem me themselves
to some of the out-of-the-way places in
our city, where thrr will no longer be a
standing menace to the purity of our
boys and girls.
Among those called before the court.
yesterday, one case stands upon
grounds different from those in the
oases of the unfortunate women already
referred to. it Is the mistress of the
white house. She owns her own prop
erty and cannot be required to vaoate
it; yet she is charged with living there
within a stone's throw of the residences
of many ol our best citizens, in open
ana shameless profligacy with a man
to whom she makes no pretence of ever
having been married, ibis case has
eiven trouble several times before, and
tbe supposition now is tbat it will be
pushed for all there is in it. The peo
ple are aroused, and now tbat they
have undertaken to clean out this
Augean stable, tbe probabilities are tho
work will be done thoroughly, and to
such an extent as not to require being
none again soon.
Governor Ross has written a letter to
one of our leading citizens, saying that
he will be in Las Vegas in about two
weeks to spend several days.
Some very fine telegraph poles came

Tom Swaringer's cases were yester

Broom corn is a crop well adapted to
New Mexico. It stands drought, re
quires but a short season, is easily
handled, and can be maoafactured at
a slight expense for machinery upon
tbe farm where it is raised. Almost
any one can make brooms, by giving
the subject a little attention, Tbe orop
is a heavy one to the acre, and this year
readily sells in the states for $200 to
1240 per ton, leaving the seed and fod'

Miss Clara Hyatt, who kept the little
notion store on Sixth street, died yes
terday a few moments before ten
o'clock. She bad been in our city for
a few months only, but because of her
sad affliction many bad formed a warm
attachment for her. Her disease was
spine trouble which kept her con
fined to her couch most of the time.
Her death was a happy release to her,
but a sad affliction to her friends. The
remains wilt be kept for transportation
to the east until friends there are heard
The men wbo were to be tried yester
day for rioting, pleaded guilty and were
fined 15 and costs, In addition to tbe
floe imposed on Monday. 'They should
be thoroughly humiliated and hearti
ly ashamed of themselves. No doubt
is will teach tnim a lesson it they are
not thoroughly bad, ana their
conduct was tbe result of folly more

sire to outdo the new police, were doubt
less at the bottom of the whole tbing.
oat such only adds to tbe beinousness
of their offence rather than paleates it.
The citizens, particularly of the east
side, have made up a purse for presen
tation to Col. Pntchard. It is Intended
not so much as a feo for his legal ser
vioes in prosecuting the recent violators
of law and order, as for a token of ap
proval of tbe people lor (be stand he
has taken in tbis matter as a citizen.
The people make a place, and all citi
zens are interested in th good name
and orderly conduct of their town . it
is every man's business to aid in en
forcing the law, and in bringing evil
doars to punishment. The time was
when Las vegas was like other wild
western villages tbe rough and law
less elements predominated. That
time has passed. A majority of our
people are quiet and law-abiding, and
they intend that others shall be alsu.
there is no need oi vigilant oommuiees
it the people are only united to see the
laws executed.
Tbe plaza park is-pubho orouertv.
but this does not give anv one tbe ritrlu
to injure or deface iU It is for tbe pub
lic euioyment and not lor any private
gratification. Then, too, there is the
same redress for trespass on public
domain as for trespasses upon private
rights, ibis muon is suggested to
those who are in tbe habit of passing
through this park early in tbe morning
or late in the evening, trampling on the
grass and - breaking the shrubbery.
lbev are being watched, and' some hue
day they will bnd themselves severely
punished, i he plaza park is a thing of
beauty and may be a joy forever. It I
can afford an amount of pleasure to our
people wbiob, taken in tbe aggregate,
is beyond the possibility of computa
tion. Why, then, any should be van
dal enough to injure it in any manner,
shape or form, can be aocounted tor
in no other way but on the Darwinian
theory of man's close kinship to the an
imals. Decoration Day Notice.
