Belen, "X. M.. Jan. 13.—On Ivlonday. Jan, 18, the town of Belen ceases to be simply a stopping place, but assumes the position of being one of the important and busy points in New Mexico on the Santa r e railway system. Upon that day 30 freight crews now running over the main line will take the through east and westbound freight trains in and out of this city in four dif-ections. From Belen to El Paso;' Belen to Vaughn on the cuto^; Belen to Kast L.as Vegas, and Belen to Gallup. The 30 crews comprise about 100 men who are already preparing to move their families to this city as fast as buildings and homes are biiilt for their housing. Besides the 30 crews 100 machinist.s and clerks are to be stationed in the machine shops here, which will be in charge of Will Bean, son of S. I j . Bean, mechanical superintendent of the Santa Fe coast lines. •The roadbed, track and line from Albuquerque to this city and to Rio Puerco has Vjeen thoroughly gone over lately and strengthened to enable the heavy IG'X) class of engines to travel safely aiui make speed with the red ball freights. Before July of this year it is said that the California limited east and westbound will be routed through Belen and over tlie cutoff. The passenger crews will still make Albuquerque their division as at present. The men who will be removed to Belen at present leceive about $800 per month, whi?h will be lost to Albuquerque. P.

Specimen Ore I^unning $400 Taken From Quo A'adis, and $100 Ore From Ridgewood. Sylvanite. X. M., Jan. 13.—The most recent interesting feature connected with the development w’ork in the camp have been the discovery of some very fine samples of specimen ore in the Quo Vadis group, and of some high grade gold ore on iiie Ridgewood claim. Estimates have placed the values in the Quo Vadis specimens as liigh as $300u to the ton, and it is said tliere is a pay shoot over fifteen incites wide in a quartz vein about twenty feet in width. Tlie property formerly belonged to li. B. Buchannon, but has been taken over by Pier.s-on Bros.. K. Irvin, of Sylvanite. and J. E. Mill.s, of Oklahoma. the price being reported at $60,000 for ttie group of six claims. The ore in the Jiidgewood mine is said to average about ^100 to the ton, and the property is being worked bv P.

Mr. Tom's suggestion proved popular and it is very probable the C’om- mercial club will take Immediate action on it with a view toward having the proposed meeting held about I'e'o- ruary l.'>. I'a^or Trade I'.xpiirslon. Tne Herald’s suggestion that the next trade excursion be made through west Texas is heartily and to a man endorsed by the business m» n »'f Pecos, as is its idea of letting the world know through its columns of the wonderful development of west Texas. “We certainly would like to have the business men of El Paso visit Pecos and it will lie a pU'asure to us to have them spend sufficient tinie with us to enable us to take them in automobiles out intt) the cotintry to show' them what is being done toward developing the agricultural possibilities of this section," said E.
