CITY OF MEXICO
Plans for Building A Road Being
It Would Run From Brownsville to
Tampico Thence to the City of
Mexico Easy of Construction
from this City to Tampico.
The correspondent of the San
Antonio express writes his paper
that as a result of the building of
the Tampico-Mexico .short line of
the Central the project of extend-
ing the line north from Tampico
is receiving much diacussion among
railroad officials. While the Tampico-Mexico
City line is just get-
ting started it is the intention to
push it to completion as rapidly as
possible and the importance of the
lire to the railrod transportation of
Mexico it is acknowledged would
be greatly augmented by an ex-
tensiu to the border.
The extension of the line north
from Tampico. closely following
the coast to Matamoros and there
connecting with the St. Louis
Brownsville & Mexico would give
direct connection between Mexico
City and New Orleans a route
which would enter into strong
competition with the water route
from New Orleans to Mexican
ports. In Mexico the road would
open a long strip of contry which
has developed but little on account
of limited .-transportation advan-
tages. Such an extension would put
the City of Mexico in closer con-
nection with the southern coast
and the eastern part of the United
States and in addition would af-
ford a direct line between this
city and the rapidly developing
pbrtion of Texas.
The construction of the exten
sion between Tampico and Mata
moros it is said would be much
easier than the construction of the
line between this city and Tampi
co as the route would follow
closely the coast line and rough
country would be avoided practi-
cally the entire distance.
Truck Growers Notice.
When General Passenger Agent
Doherty issued the call for a con-
vention of truck growers and all
interested in the business to be
held at some point on the Gulf
Coast Line he found it impossible
to obtain the addresses of all truck
growers and Mr. Doherty writes
to The Herald inviting coopera-
tion in placing the matter before
all interested. If you are connect
ed with the truck growing indus-
try write to Mr. Doherty at Cor-
pus Christi telling him whether
you approve of the convention or
not. State at what point on the
line of the St. Louis Brownsville
& Mexico Railroad you believe the
convention should be held and any
other matters you feel like writing
about. Do this at once because
the convention should be held be-
fore the 1st- of July in order that
Mr. Dohert5' may give free passes
over the railroad to all who desire
to attend the meeting.
Professor Green of the Govern-
ment Experimental Farm at Fort
Brown Brownsville has suggested
that as the government has esta-
blished this plant garden at Browns
ville for the benefit of truck
growers and farmers along the"
Gulf Coast and as the splendid
building at Fort Brown are admir-
ably adapted for a mammoth meet
ing it would be a grand idea if the
truck growers should write and
name Brownsville as the place of
meeting. Sit down now and
write what you think of the pro
ject to General Passenger Agent
Jjohert Corpus Lhnsti lexas.

He Had Done It Alone. Says

Washington June 10. James
W. Newton who was knocked
down by a Customs House Inspec-
tor at Brownsville Tex. by a blow
on his head with a six shooter a
short time before the town was
"shot up" and F. P. Lipscomb
who accompanied him on that oc-
casion were both before the Senate
Committee on Military Affairs to-
day. Both witnesses denied that they
had given any affront to Mrs. Tate
wife of the inspector who knocked
Newton down and said they were
quietly passing along on the side-
walk when attacked.
Newton and Lipscomb were sub-
jected to a severe cross examina-
tion ..by several members of the
committee. Asked by Senator Ta-
liaferro whether if he had done
the shooting he would plead false-
ly to conceal it Newton replied
"Yes sir if I did it myself."
He admitted that any soldier
could get out of the Barracks en-
closure into the town without be-
ing seen if he wanted to do so.
He heard the shooting on the night
of August 13 but could not tell
in the excitement whether it was
by guns or pistols.
Alexander J. Levie who was
First Sergeant of Company L
Twenty-sixth Infantry at the time
he was ordered from Brownsville
on the arrival of the negro troops
also testified at today's session.
Levie stated that he heard conver
sations on the streets in Browns
ville showing that a strong feeling
existed among citizens against the
negro soldiers being ordered there.

parture of His Body From San
Antonio to Its Final
J. N. Punch of Bloomfield M.
a relative of the late Lieutenant
Richardson accompanied the body
back to Bloomfield to which place
it was shipped Monday night.
Mr. Punch said to an Express
reporter that Richardson had not
communicated with his mother or
sister for some time and his rash
deed came as a severe shock to
them. It had been believed by
them that Richardson was in good
health and prosperous.
Richardson is survived by his
mother Mrs. M. A. Richardson
a sister Miss Hart Richardson
and two of his orphaned children
a boy of eight and a little girl of
three years. These children have
