The VUltof It*
The New M. xican n»8 suspend
ed. It was an able and vtry newsy
journal. It did good Work for New
Mexico, anil its editor was treated
shabbily by his confreres in that
territory. At least that's the way-
it appears down here. We are sor-
ry for the fai'vre.
Major Fountain is-the pecretar
of the El Paso and White Oaks
railroad company. He assures
the Lincoln County (N. M.) Leader
that " as soon as the necessary of-
fice work wan done, work wvuld be
vigorously puphed-forward on the
R. R , and completed in the short-
est possible space of lime."
Mr. Stone, editor of the Chicago
News, says : "In my own office I
hafre posted this rule: 'Nothing
shall appear in the columns of the
Daily Ivews, which a young lady
may not, with propriety, read aloud
before a mixed company; and I
will discharge any man who vio
lates it.' " We should like to have
Mr. Siune's definition of a "mixed"
_ company, We have seen a compa-
ny so " mixed" that a young lady
might read anything with perfect
propriety before it. Mr. Stone does
not run his newspaper on any such
narrow gauge as his office rule im-
plies. _The Chicago News, like any
other live newspaper, is obliged to
consider "the world, the flesh,
and the devil."_ It is not at all of
the prurient prude school, though its
editor's instructions might make
any one, who knows it not, think
so. Indeed, the "mixed'-* company
business applied to Chicago would
rentier it improbable. Probably what
Mr. Stone means is, not that bam
yaid and stews sh.iil not be referred
to, but that when it becomes a news-
paper's duty as it does sometimes,
to act as a scavenger, it »hall not
sort over the muck it may handle
aiid spread it before vulgar eyes, as
though each particular particle Was
a "nem of purest ray serene." A
newspaper to be properly handled
must have a robust and virile
quality. Questions of taste and
sentiment are not to be ignored.
But the vigorous qualities are the
ones that make the world comforta-
ble. The engineer who drains the
malarious marsh and constructs the
foul coloa€a, is commonly a greater
benefactor than the artist-architect
who builds and decorates* -for the
"mixed" company yf astheti s and
aristocrats. The- newspaper has the
world s work to do. There are stars
in the sky and suns in the firma-
ment!5. Rut there are also crimes in
— human ltfe and vices in eoeial order
that n-ed to be (Lagged toJigbt.
They must be handled without
gloves. And the lady, young or old,
is better armed who has the inno-
cence of knowledge rather than
that of ignorance. —
It was Dean Swift that said that
nice jwople have nasty thoughts,''
but the nastinesajJiat is inevitable
life, may be so to'd' that no one
who reads the newspapers that are
compelled to tell, can doubt the die-
gust that animates the writer. But
•b.»va all things, n- newspaper must
be s cnlar. It is a narration. It must
tell what occurred y< st» r<Iay, what
is «k-cu ring to-<lay. ai d indicate
what may o -cur to morrow. In
doing this, it's "mixed" company
is tha> «»fjhe world and it talks to
mankind, w so much of the race as
<s>mfs within its circle of influence,
ft ha- therefore,- tn consider all
things 1 ieceacy of speech must
tion are wanting we must look for it
in the resources of the country
which surround them. The inven-
tion of steam and the introduct on
of railways, however, have hyl ex-
traordinary influence in the erec-
tion of town«, even where the im-
mediate neighborhood has lacked
all descriptions of natural re-
sources. The prosperity of many
large thriving communities to-dny
i« almost wholly attributable to their
railway communications. El Paso
is a great, and will be a still greater,
ailway centre, and tlrs in itself iE
a foundation and guarantee of fu-
Two years ago the City of th*
Pass had barely come into exist-
ence. Look at her to-day. A city
of 4,000 inhabitants ! Look at her
railway-communication. On the
north, the Atchison, Topeka and
Ss.nta Fe Road keeps her in direct
communication with New Mexie«
and Colorado, countries lich in
countless herds of flocks and un-
told mineral wealth of a'l descrip-
tions^cn the south, the Mexican
Centra', opening up the fabulous
wealth of the land of the Montezu-
mas ; on the east and south the Tex-
as roads, carrying us into the great
stock country of the Union; on the
we.-t, the Souther Pac fic, connect
ing us with California'a queen city.
Ere long, when the White Oak6
Road is built and opened, we sh»dl
be in communication with the
enormously large coal fields of
New Mexico, and then cheap coal
theesstntial of all manufactories,
will be plentiful. What a field is
open for enterprise among us—
what a great trade must ulti-
mately l>e ours ! Why should not
large manufactories be opened
in our town, and. the enor-
mous clips of Texas, New
Mexico and Colorado supply al
the wooltn wants of our neighbors?
What is there to prevent El P.tso
tanners, availing themselves of the
immense quantities ef hides at
cheap rates, which are to be procur-
ed on all sides ! If the Pueblo In-
dian and the conservative Mexican
can irrigate the soil and make it
produce bountifully, what prevents
the civilized Yankee from doing the
same? Pessimists, talking of El
Paso, will say to you, "We do not
see what is to support the town,
she has no resources." "No re-
sources," we reply, "what more do
we require?" Let us try to peep a
little into the future. The Mexican
Central railioad is in the hands of
the American capitalists entirely.
The commerce of northern Mexico
is also in our bands. What is to hin
der the establishment at no distant
day of a continental customs un-
ion? It is simply a question of
time. «What an enormous gain the
aboliiion of all inter-continental
dutiea would be to the town, as
well as to the country at large
Anybody taking a stroll along our
principal st. eets, can see how rap-
idly the town is growing. How
substantial brick and atone stores
are building on every side, despite
the prophesies of occasional croak
ers, who see everything through
"glasses darkly." Our city is
compelled to largely increase, and
we look_forward at no distant date,
when the town of Paso 4el Norte
and El Paso will be one large, con-
tinous and thriving city, bridged
by a handsome structure in place
of the present wooden, makeshift,
and both prospering under republi-
can institutions and freedom.

Some time since the El Paso
board of trade appointed a com-
mittee to visit diffeieut points in
Chihuahua, with the vi**w of ar-
ranging for an excursion to th's
place of Mexican citizens, dealers
buyers. Their vioit was a suc-
cess. We have been waiting for
the committee's report, and so have
failed to make use before of the
notes before us.
The committee consisted of Mes-
srs. C. L. Pierce, W. A. Irwin, E. A.
Stewart, Joseph Schutz and M.
Ullmann. Tt.e two gentlemen last
named returned home alter visiting
San Rosalie, and the others visiied
Hujfjuquilla, Parrai, Dolores. San
Felipe and El Valle. They
we e the guests of Senior
Arnold Andestat, whose fin.-
• eati s, mansion^, etc , were at the
command of Ei Paso's lepre.-ent i
i\es. The hospitality displayed
was unbounded. Lvt rywhere our
mer> hams w> re welcomed. It wa>-
decided, a:ter full cooler* nee, to
organize the excursion for tie
F..urih of July next. Several hun-
dred visitors may be expected all
the way from Chihuahua down to
The country below the Cathedrs.l
City grows more attractive, fertile
and capable of prosperity as^ the

mill in op< rati n, With gardens aj-.d

erable amount of cotton raised it

piice obtained—fifteen tents pel
pound, renders it impossible to ex-
The El Va le mill, owned and di
rected by Dr. Ramos, runs twenty
looms and employs one hundred
hands. There is also a large cot
ton gin with sixty circular saws.
A large amount of wh^at is also
raised. None but wooden plows
ate in use. It wi 1 not be long be-
fore, a large market will be opened
for agricultural implements and
ir.achiner3'. Land owners ate all
enger to try them, but at present
the labor is the chief difficulty in
the way of iheir in: roduction. The
neighborhood of Huajuquiila is re-
markable for its fine orchards. On
one place at El Valle could be seen
apple, peach, pomegranate, apri-
cois, fig and (range trees, as also
strawberries, fitie grapes, etc., with
the finest and freshest of vegetables.
We may remark; in pass ng here,
thi>t it n.iyht he a ve»y profitable
enterprise for some one to organize
to supply this market.
Everywhere the most friendly
interest was found. Merchants,
farmers, miners, are all looking to
El Paso for wholesale commercial
and reduction facilities The gen-
eral belief and desire of Ch huahua
business men is for closer rel itions
and larger facilities. Several large
firms of lower and central Mexico,
who h*ve had branch houses in
Chihuahua, are closing up their
business, convinced that El P*so
is sure to take the trade. It de-
pends upon our own enterprise and

A valuable di covery of old rec-

suppo-ed that the oldest records of
the pay depanment in existence
were dated 1793. Recently, how-

were found in dust-covered fil^s un-

unaccounted for fro«i General
Washington of $161,339 There is
nothing in existence to show how
this deficit occurred, but it is sur-
mised the money was lost in mili-
tary operations. There is also a
large shortage in Washington's
specie account, but this is probably
due to the depreciation of Conti-
