There are some prisoners held in
Matamoros that are wanted on this
side of the Rio Bravo and Browns-
ville has one or more that the Mex-
ican authorities' arc after but the
cases have gotten so tangled up in
the red tape of extradition proceed-
ings that the transfer of prisoners
seems likely to he indefinitely
delayed. It is not likely that either
city wants to keep and feed fugiti-
ves from justice from the other or
to harbor dangerous criminals. It
might be well for the authorities
from both sides to hold a general
conference and endeavor to effect an
exchange of prisoners.

immigration agent for the Sap has
just returned from a trip to
Brpwnsvillo and reports the out-
look for that section and all of the
country including this section to
be on the eve of a great awakening
and development. He says that the
opening of 7000000 acres of land
to pettlement as a result of the
building of two lines of railroad to
Brownsville means a rush as great
almost as the rush for lands'during
the Oklahoma boom only that the
class of settlers will be of a much
more desirable class. He says that
both lines of road will be built and
that he looks for the Guadalupe
Vallev mad to be included in the
building in the course of time.
