Article Title: Carrizozo Outlook
Article Date: February 2 1905
Article Description: A New County?
A Roswell dispatch says that Gayle Talbott and John Ritchie of Artesia
have gone to Santa Fe as a committee to urge the Legislature to form a
new county from parts of Eddy and Chaves counties, with Artesia as the
county seat. The people are divided on the name of the new county,
some wanting it called Artesia and others wanting it named Ritchie county
in honor of John Ritchie, the pioneer citizen. Artesia is the town of
artesian wells and is less than eighteen months old. The census just
completed shows that the town has over 1,000 inhabitants.
