Geoeral Manager Nichols and Mas-
ter Mechanic Stansbury came up from
Eddy yesterday on NOi 30 attached to
the regular train. The Register re-
porter interviewed Mr. Nichols on the
present status of tbe work on the rail-
way extension. "Since the bad weath-
er ceased" said Mr. Nichols "we have
been coming right along and the grad-
ing at this end is completed to and in-
cluding mile 26. The track is laid
through tbe sixteenth tnlie. On
the other end tbe track is 156 miles
west of Amarillo. This leaves 34
miles of track to layrwhich we can do
in twelve days as soon as the grade is
all ready; there is about 26 miles ol
grading to finish up merely nearly alf
of it being about complete. All tbe
material at this end of the line is laid
steel bolts and spikes and the re-
mainder of the track will be laid from
the other end. We have 255 teams at
work between here and the T71 ranch.
The pile driver will go out to the front
tomorrow to begin work on the 96
foot bridge and trestle work seven-
teen miles out. We expect to connect
up by the 25th of this month and have
trains running by the 1st of February.
Mr. Greene of Fairbanks Morse &Co.

putting up all our water stations is
here now to erect the plant at this
place and Mr. S tans bury oame up with
me to superintend the locating of the
plant. Tbe tank will be of 50.000 gal-
Jons capacity. The site for round
house and machine shops has been
located and tbe material for them is
loaded at Port Worth and will leave
there next Wednesday. All the
material comes cut and framed ready
to put up and Joe Klasner with his
force of men will be able to put it up
in thirty or thirty-five days. Master
Mechanic Staosbury will be here most
of the time and superintend the erec-
tion of tbe whole plant. Stinson and
his force of tracklayers will be back
here from tbe front soon to grade the
remaining tracks for tbe yard and

Engines 15 and 16 arrived at Amarillo
yesterday. They are two new engines
purchased by the Pecos Valley &
Northeastern of the Brooks Loco-
motive Works of Dunkirk N. Y. and
are of a lighter class than those pur-
chased by the construction company
for work between Roswell
and Amarillo. They are
are desigoed for service between Pecos

power about equally giving eight
good engines on each end of the road

Tha Infominc tide of travel now
ouisizee tbe outgoing tide by a large
percentage. Nearly all tha trains
from the north on both the Central and
the National during the past week have
unloaded big crowds here and the pas
senger lists for the outgoing trains
have been very scant. Mexican .Her
Tbe Albuquerque Citizen is talking
of extensive improvements which the
Santa Fe are going to make at this end
of the line. As. the saying is a person
must leave home to find the news.
None of the Santa Fe officials on this
end cf the line know anything about
tbe improvements mentioned. None
will deny that a great deal of improve-
ment could be made without injuring
the value of the property.1
Frank Palmer at one time yardmas-
teron the Santa Fe at this point is
said to be lying at point of death in the
railroad hospital at Albuquerque.
Some time ago he was thrown from the
top of-a box car at Williams Ariz.
and sustained injuries whicb. .it is
thought by the attending physician
will cause his death. Mr. Palmer
made many friends during his stay
here who will regret to hear of his
serious condition. .

senger agent of the C. B. & Q. line Dr.
J. A. Denoey H. C. Kinsely and M.

in a special C. B. & Q. car No. 98.

ican Central and will visit all points of

road has been com pi ted as far as Co-

It was completed last week and con-
struction trains are running every day
between Tguala ard that point. Iguala
is the present terminus of the road
open for traffic The exact time for
tbe turning over the road by the con-
struction company to the operating
company baa not yet been de"ided but
it ia thought that it will occur imme-
diately upon the retumof Col. Hampton
from this country to Mexico.
The Trouble At SoIomonviUe.
Geo. Scarborough arrived in SoIo
monviUe last Thursday with a warrant
from the State of Texas for the arrest
of tbe man Williams whom Scarbo-
rough 6hot and wounded about tbe first
of last December in the Eagle Creek
country. Scarborough presented the
warrant for Williams in tha hands of
Sheriff Clark with the request that it
be servecL " - - .
Sheriff Clark telegraphed his de-
puty JohnJSelman at Geronimo to ar-
rest Williams and bring him to SoIo
monviUe. Selman replied by wire
that he bad arrested Williams.but that
bis prisoner was sick and not able to
travel but that he would bring him to
the county seat the next day.
Sheriff Clark and Scarborough - went
to Geronimo on Friday but Williams
was not tbcre having made his escape
Thursday night. : Selman told the
sheriff that during the evening be was
called away from tbe prisoner only for
a few moments and when he returned
Williams bad disappeared.
Deputy Selman i a eon of John
Selman who was killed by Scar-
borough in El Paso several years ago.
During the day at Geronimo Selman
and Scarborough had some angry and
ugly words which might have resulted
in some trouble between them had not
Sheriff Clark promptly interfered.
However there was nothing so ex-
citing as the report published in an El
Paso paper would indicate.
The warrant from Texas for Wil-
liams is said to be based on a charge
of stealing a horse eleven years ago.
Sheriff Clark still has the warrant
which will probably be served later on

A FEW REASONS.
Why the Mexican Government Does
" Not Rebpen tnePatortias Custom
House. .- . .
The agitation concerning the reopen
ing of the Palomaa custom house has
now been in progress for some months
and it would doubtless be of interest to
know some of the reasons why the
Mexican government is opposed to it.
The following extracts are taken
from a consular report recently receiv-
ed bv the Mexican government.
''Besides wrong information render
ed by speculators and bad citizens in
Mexico there are two reasons in my
belief which Induced the Mexican gov-
ernment to close the custom house at
Lias Palomas: first that said custom
house never collected enough to cover
expenses; second that the newly built
Sierra Madre railroad ought to be pro-
tected in some way so as to encourage
To the first reason it can be answer-
ed that the idea of the Mexican gov
ernment or of any other government
is not to have custom .houses just for
the sake of making money but to have
proper and convenient portsEof entry;
so as to wisely encourage the resources
of the country by way of commercial
facilities between nations. As an ex-
ample there are in Mexico on the
coast and on then Texas frontier cus-
tom houses which never have paid ex
penses nor even collected as much Nas
was formerly collected at Palomas yet
the government keeps them for con
"The reopening of the custom house
at Palomas is of great necessity as
there is not a single port of entry on
the boundary line between northern
Chihuahua and Sonora a distance of
about 250 miles and in consequence
the development of northern Chihua-
hua and Sonora has been greatly re
tarded. If the custom house at Pa-
lomas had not been closed it is calcu-
lated that 18000 head of cattle would
have entered the United States
through that port during 1898."

These gen'lemen will visit DeMules's
properties Din the Jicarillas and
other po.nts where DeMules was
interested. Mr. Curran bringB
with him a power of attorney from
W. T. DeMules father of the deceas

estate Amos DeMules's mother hav
ing died when he was but four years of
age leaving tnres children two eons
and one daughter. The remaining son
lives in Minnesota and the daughter
now resides in Hastinge Nebraska.
"It is reported that Da Mules left
several thousand dollars in bark in El
Paso which will undoubtedly be turn
ed over as soon as claims against the
estate are settled. It is also stated
that AmoB De Mules spent most of all
the money he mde from his valuable

properties which will leave to his

claims are paid. His turquols mines
are the most valuable of all his mining
