Portales Times, Portales, New Mexico

H. B. Ryther is a well-known representative of journalistic interests in New Mexico. He came to Portales in 1903 and established the Portales Times on the 17th of February, 1903. This is the official paper of Roosevelt County and has a weekly edition published on Saturdays. It is independent in politics and is devoted to the dissemination of local and general news and to the furtherance and exploitation of the interests and resources of this section of the Territory. He is a native of Michigan and he brought to his new home the enterprising spirit which has been the dominant factor in the rapid and substantial up building of the Middle West. Here he took up a ranch, which he is now operating in connection with his journalistic ventures. His political views are in accord with Republican principles and he is a stalwart advocate of the party and its policy.
