To Keep American Ships
on the Seas
For the first time since the Civil War we have a real
merchant marina. It cost ns $3,000,000,000 to get it.
The farmer, manufacturer, laborer every American is
Interested in holding our peeltion on the ease.
As a first step in this direction it is necessary to modify
those articles of existing commercial treaties which hava
operated to thwart the upbuilding of oar merchant marine—
By giving the notice of termination for which the several

To see this raw sugar, which to
us looked more like saw dust drip-
ping with oil than any thing else we
can compare it to, put into a vat,
and in four minutes come out
clean and white, was to us as magic
or sleight-of-hand. We saw.*the
sugar sacked in 100-lb. bags; Of one-
pound cartons, and block sugar.
The output of this refinery is 28.000
pounds of sugar per day. Each
lady was given a pound box of
sugar, and a sample of cotton used
in the Sealey mattresses. We were
taken back to Houston in time to
dress for the banquet and ball given
on the roof garden of the Rice, by
Jesse JoDes, Houston Capitalist, and
here an evening of rare feasting,
speech-making and music was en-
joyed, and the floor was finally
cleared for dancing which lasted
until all were ready to say good
Nine o.clock Saturday morning
found us in convention assembly;
we worked fast and furious to get
through with the busines session.
We were a member of the member-
ship committee, and reported on
forty-one new active members. We
were also assigned other work which
we enjoyed, but none more than
the part assigned us in the nomina-
tion of Judd Moritmer Lewis, of
Houston Chronicle, as vice president.
vice we were grouped with some
half dozen veteran editors, some of
whom were charter members of
the press association at their meet-
ing in Houston forty years aga
This group was to have appeared in
Sunday’s Post, whether we broke
the machine or the group was held
for another veteran who was not
located until later, we cannot say,
but the Sunday paper did not con-
tain this interesting feature.
Through courtesy of the General
Oil Company the association was
taken in interurban cars to Galves-
ton for a bathing party, and there
were few of them who did not take
advantage of the opportunity to
take their annual, ^and besported
themselves in the water like mer-
maids and king fishes. From the
beach care took the party to “Johns
Place” where a sea food dinner was
served: Crab-gumbo, baked crabs,
fried fish, salads, and condiments.
S. E. J. Cox, president of the General
Oil Company jwho had soared above
and around the interurban cars en-
route from Houston to Galveston, in
a beautiful red plane, presided at
the dinner, accompanied by his at-
tractive wife who has a nation wide
reputation as a “ flying-woman,"
and their little son, Seymour Cox,
sang for the press people, giving his
selection in French. Little Miss
Doris McMahn also sang. Mayor

We were then hurried back to
Houston to take out going trains for

association has such entertainment
been accorded. Our money was of
no value save for room rent and
breakfast. Houston has left noth-

progressiveness and devotedness of
the citizenship of Houston to the
growth of their city and section of

a pass or special rate ticket, we
registered “off” at the Rice at noon
Saturday, got ticket and pullman
reservation for Sunday^ night, dis-
posed of our baggage, and from the
time of the leaving of the press peo-

Houston well. When we stated
that as a residenFOf Galveston, we
had looked upon the deep water
project of Houston as simply a
movement to keep Hie City before
the public, a waste of money and a
futile effort, but that since we had
seen with our eyes a little of what
had been accomplished we were
willing to be converted, and would
make an effort to inform ourselves,
Mr. Davis order his wife and myself
to don our hats; phoning to a
favorite place for dinner, he loaded
ns in his Kissler for a ride of infor-
mation. We had no pencil or note
book and kept no tabulated mem-
orandum, and we have no idea of
directions nor parts of city visited,
but we were shown immense oil
refineries; schooi grounds where the
one-story school buildings are being
used, possibly a dozen or more
buildings,all connected with covered
passage wayst and so attached to
the administration buildings. One
such school is located in a five acre
campus. We drove through beauti-
ful Sam Houston Park, where family
parties were enjoying luncheon, in
the shade of live oaks, and beside
sparkling fountains. Only a little
time was given to beautiful homes,
as all cities have these, but we were
shown the elegant home of one of
the hosts for the press, Jesse Jones,

use of his money for the develop-
ment of Houston; out to Rice Insti-
