S. P. Gives Rate of $4.75 For Deming – El Paso Trip

A passenger rate of $4.75 for the round trip between Deming and El Paso has been giver by the Southern Pacific railroad to apply only on parties of 15 or more persons, who must go and return together. This rate was allowed after representations had been made to the company by the El Paso chamber of commerce, secretary George H. Clements said. Parties of 100 or more persons may secure a round trip rate of $3.55. This reduction will enable groups of soldiers at Camp Cody to visit El Paso at economical figures. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Friday, October 5, 1917
