DENISON AS A BI SINESS POINT.
The question is frequently asked,
“ What is there to support Denison,
and give it an advantage over other
towns in the State?” As a partial
answer to this question we will give
a few figures. We have conversed
With the officers of the M., K. & T.
Railway Co. and of the Overland
Transit Company, from whom we
have gathered the statistics which we
make the basis of the following re-
marks ; and we will add that we be-
lieve them to be perfectly reliable:
The amount of freights southward
bound, which are now coming over
the M..K. & T. Railway, is estimated
at between 75 and 85 car loads per day,
which is about 850 tons. Fully eighty
per cent, of this freight is destined
for various points east and west of
this city, and will require, say 550
wagons to haul it to its destination.
Supplies must be purchased here for
the teams and men, money expended
for repairs, etc. These wagons will
bring as return freight, cotton, hides,
wool, and other products of the coun-
try, a large portion of which will he
consigned to our commission mer-
chants, and advances made—all of
which creates business and puts
money in circulation.
These 550 wagons each requires a
driver, and say every 12 wagons a
maradomo or wagon-master. The
wages of the former we will put at
$23 a month, and the latter at $50,
making a total of$i6,ooo. It is cus-
tomary to pay these men monthly.
Their puv alone places a considerable
sum of money in active circulation,
among our merchants.
The government freight last year
during six months, through the Over-
land Transportation Company, who
are the contractors, destined for Forts
Griffin, Richardson and Sill, alone
amounted to 3000 tons. For the
next six months it will be much
larger, as under the orders of General
Sheridan, commanding this district,
in addition to the above posts, Forts
Concho, McKavit, Fountain, Davis,
Stockton and Quitman will also re-
ceive their supplies via of the M., K.
& T. Railway. As these posts average
eight companies each, some idea may
be formed of the immense amount
of supplies that will be required. We
will place the increase at the low
estimate of 7000 tons, and let us see
the result, in a business view, to
Denison: 7000 tons of freight will
require say 6000 wagons to transport
it. which is 540 wagons per day. The
cost for drivers, wagon masters, sup-
plies. repairs, etc., will amount to not
less than $250 per wagon in making
the round trip. All the men will be
paid off at Denison; supplies, etc.,
will be purchased here, all of which
must result in placing a large amount
of monev in the hands of mechanics
and business men. In this estimate
we have not taken into account the
expenditures resulting from the re-
cruiting service, which in the course
of a year amounts to very consider-
Orders are already issued that all
the supplies for the army of North-
ern and Western Texas: even as far
as the Rio Grande, shall be brought
over the M., K. & T. Railway via
Denison, St. Louis and the West.
Heretofore a large portion of these
supplies have been transported to
New Orleans, thence by the Morgan
steamers to Galveston or Indianola.
thence to Austin or San Antonio.
This circuitous route is now super-
ceeded by the direct line to this city,
while the distance from here to the
various forts on t ie frontier is no fur-
ther than from Austin and San An-
tonio to these forts, resulting in a
great saving to the government both
in expense and time. Messrs. Adams
A Wicks have contracted with the
government to supply all those forts
until July next, and have made Deni-
son their supply depot.
We will now say a few words re-
garding the shipment of cotton.
Nearly all Northern Texas is a cotton
producing region, and the'cheapest
and best outlet is via the M., K. A T.
Railway to St. Louis and New York.
The expense of transportation is less
this way, and this is consequently the
natural channel for its shipment.
The shipment the past year has been
at least 30,000 bales. Each team
will haul say five bales; requiring
6000 teams during the cotton season
to transport it. Add to the amount
disbursed for hire, supplies, etc., and
the handling of this cotton, the ad-
vancements by our commission mer-
chants,and it will readily be seen that
this one article of traffic will alone
create a flourishing business.
The M„ K. A T. Railway have
shipped the past year 120,000 bead
of cattle vjued at fully $12 a bead,
making a total of $1.-140,000. I hese
were shipped at a point 73 miles
north of here. The p'-es- nt liberal
reduction in freights will probably
result in the road controlling at this
point fr om 175,000 to *00,000 head
of cattle this year, amounting to up-
wards of $2,500,000. The cost of
shipment will be about $6 per head;
making at the lowest estimate, over
$1,000,000, as the amount accruing
from transportation to a market alone.
These cattle it should be recollect-
ed, are driven an average of- 150 or
200 miles, involving an outlay of at
least $2 per head. Advances will be
made on these cattle as fast as deliv-
ered to the Company, and the hands
will be paid otf here, and most of
the money placed in circulation.
This gives another fine revenue.
The mercantile freights over the
railroad will average not less than
200 cars a day, before the year is
out, for we have a large scope of
country whose merchants are looking
in this direction to get their goods,
freight being lower, and communica-
tion more direct, and less time re-
quired for transportation.
We have thus hastily gone over a
few figures to show our readers what
are our facilities for business. W e
have not space to enter into mimi-
tiaes, draw comparisons or foot up
the results—that we will leave those
to do who are interested in the mat-
ter. Here are the facts, anil many
others might he presented, and we
leave our readers to draw the conclu-
Denison is to-day to Texas what
Leavenworth was in ’58, ’59, ’60 and
’61 to tlie great West beyond—a
supplv depot for an extensive range
of forts and frontier towns; and in
addition, is surrounded by a fertile
country, already dotted with thrifty
farms and villages—all tributary to
her future grandure and wealth.
We well remember that when the
present location of Denison was at
last definitely settled, that the argu-
ment which opponents to the locali-
tv most relied upon, and which they
appeared to think unanswerable, was
that we could never get a sufficient
supply of water. The Town Com-
pany thought differently, and imme-
diatelv went to work to test the mat-
ter by sinking a well on Main street,
in the very heart of the city. The
result was that at a depth of 36 feet,
they struck a vein of pure water,
which is inexhaustible though it has
been u'sed continually ever since by
a large number of residents for sev-
eral squares around.
About the same time, (some two
months ago), Mr. Densmorc dug a
well on his lot on Crawford street,
and at the depth of only 12 feet,
reached a fine vein of water,and it is
now over four feet deep, and the sup-
ply more than equal to the demand.
.V well has been dug recently for
the use of the new hotel, at the foot
of Main street, and an abundant sup-
ply of water reached at a depth of
25 feet. There is now nine feet of
water in that well.
A short time since, Mr. Perry had
a well dug near his residence in the
western part of the city, on the hill,
and at a depth of only 20 feet struck
a vein of soft water, which is now
five feet deep, and pronounced the
best water in Northern Texas.
Mr. Killgore has a well at his resi-
dence north of the Nelson House,
which is 30 feet deep, with live feet
of excellent water.
Mr. James Morris has just com-
pleted the curbing of a well for the
Nelson Hosue, on Main street, which
is 34 feet deep and with fifteen feet
Mr. Downing is now engaged dig-
ging a well for the use of his stable
on Woodward* street. Saturday they
blasted through a rock at the depth
of nine feet, and the drill was fol-
lowed by a stream of water nearly
as large as a man’s wrist. It is prob-
able however, that he will find it
! necessary to go down a few feet fur-
Governor L. S. Owings reached a
powerful stream of pure water in his
well at the livery stable on Owings
street last week, and though over one
hundred and twenty-five horses, be-
sides several head of stock are sup-
plied from it, there is an abundance
of water to spare. This well is 33
These wells it will be noticed, are
scattered all over (lie city, and in no
instance has there been a failure of
finding an abundant supply of the
best and sweetest water.
But while it is now settled beyond
cavil that we can always have water
in abundance, in the dryest seasons,
by digging for it; we arc by no
means compelled to rely upon wells
for so necessary and article. From
one and a-half to three miles from
the citv are several large and perma-
nent springs, either one of which
will supply water sufficient for a
large population, and they arc so sit-
uated tjjat the water could be
brought into the city at comparative-
ly small expense.
As this lnig-a-boo of no water is
now pretty ctlerlived, exploded by

* THE BAXTER MURDER.
The following particulars of the
murder at Baxter Springs, to which
we alluded in our last issue, we take
from the Kansas City Commercial.
Epps and Howard have had an ex.
animation and been committed for
Tuesday evening Marshal Howard
and his Deputy Van Epps, were
walking along the street with a mail
carrier, with whom they entered the
office of the Wiggins House, where
they found William Westcott, a pri-
vate or merchants policeman. As
they entered the mail carrier said
something that was offensive to
Westcott, which resulted in a diffi-
culty between them. This however
was amicably adjusted. Again
about mid-night the Marshal and
Deputy Marshal came in contact
with Westcott at a saloon, and a
quarrel was the result, terminating
in Westcott drawing a revolver and
backing them down. Not long after
this the Marshal and Deputy again
appeared at the Wiggins House of-
fice, having a double-barrelled shot-
gun. This they set down in one
corner and deliberately proceeded to
warm themselves. After having
gained a comfortable degree of
warmth they took up the shot-gun
and went out. After a few minutes
a shot was heard, and inside of five
from the time they left the fire they
were warming by it as composedly
as though nothing had taken place.
The mail carrier, who was still sit-
ting by the fire, asked what that shot
meant. The Deputy Marshal re-
plied that he guessed Westcott had
been sliot, they had seen him fall out
there in the street. The Marshal,
however, immediately added he
would teach men that when he com-
manded them to halt they must obey.
A party went into the street soon
afterwards, and after some time
searching, found Westcott dead.
The shot from the shot-gun had en-
tered the back of his head and neck.
The saloon keeper, where the quar-
rel between Westcott and t"an Epps
took place, says that after the shot
Westcott came to his saloon and ask-
ed for a revolver, saying that Vail
Epps had shot him. The saloon
keeper loaned him his revolver and
this he had in his hand when found,
his own revolver being gone.
Both Van Epps and Howard were
arrested anil are now in jail.
A TALE OF 1JOKKOK.
The New York Tribune of De-
cember 26th, publishes the following
particulars of the Goose creek rail-
road disaster. The train was going-
down a grade of 85 feet to the mile
and was about sixty rods from Pros-
pect depot, and had shut oft" steam
and was about sixty feet from the
north end of the trestle work when a
broken wheel of the tender was dis-
covered, but under the impetus of the
down grade a stoppage could not be
made. The cars turned completely
over and remained bottom side up,
then fell perpendicularly to the ground
below, a distance of twenty feet.
When tbe cars struck, the trucks
crushed through the bottoms ofthem
and as the stoves of the passenger cars
were directly over the trucks they
were crushed to pieces, and immedi-
ately the wood work of the cars took
fire. Of forty-six people known to
have been on the two cars but one es-
caped unaided, namely, the breaks-
man on the passenger coach who
jumped clear of the cars as they were
falling. The wood work of the pas-
senger car burned freely, and before
anything could be done by the force
at hand to prevent it, the flame en-
veloped both ends of the car and crept
rapidly toward the center. Penned
within it at this time with no possi-
ble chance to extricate themselves,
were forty-three passengers, the con-
ductor, and one child ; of those seat-
ed in the ends of the car none escap-
ed ; but help arriving, about twenty-
live dead and living bodies were ta-
ken out of the center of it, and the
(lames were extinguished. The re-
mains of the other passengers were
The roll foots up as follows: Sav-
ed, all more or less injured, nineteen ;
dead, nineteen ; missing, eight. The
dead with four exceptions, were burn-
ed so as to be unrecognizable from
their features, and there arc but three
that could possibly be identified from
shreds of clothing adhering to roast-
ed flesh. Five were headless and with-
out limbs, and the remainder had the
flesh all burned oil the extremities.
The eight missing are supposed to
have been completely consumed, and
there are pieces of skulls, watches
and the like sufficient to partially jus-
tify such a belief. Among the killed
are Mark Haight, Boston ; Mr. Os-
born. Westfiield ; Mr. Ryan, E. H.
