The Notth Bnd Improvement club with-
held Its action approving or disapproving
the proposed city bond Issue for 1700000
last night deciding to wait until Its next
meeting on th second Friday In Octo-
ber to paas formally on the proposition.
Individual member In Instances did not
hesitate to express liostlle and unfriendly
attltnde towar the proposed bnd Issue
.however and thepe were some warm
comments on the city administration
though the counsel of more cautious
head . prevailed and the club was per-
mitted to adjourn without officially ex-
There -was only one action taken and
that was the appointing of a committee
which Is Instructed to work In conjunc-
tion with the bridge committee appointed
by the Business League Tuesday secur-
ing engineering advice on the best loca-
tion for a bridge to connect the business
section with the North Hide securing es-
timates on the cost of such an Improve-
ment as present and Impending condi-
tions require nd presenting these facts
in form before the city authorities as a
demand of the cltlsens for a needed Im-
provement. This committee is composed
of Rev. G. W. Story. James Fltxgerald
and George Cranffto. In addition to In-
vestigating t)ese Items in connection with
the bridge project this committee Is to
investigate the purpose of the present
bond Issue and report to the club to
what extent the Fifth WaVd Is provided
for In Its apportionment.
GENEROUSLY PROVIDED FOR.
ThlB question of the North End's share
of the 1700000 bond issue was the lead-
ing question of the meeting in fact and
the question most considerably debated.
Dennis Collins president of the club
urged that the North End was generous
ly provided for so far as sanitary sewer-
age and water-main extensions are con-
cerned. "In these two Items" said Mr
Collins "the "Fifth Ward has the best
of It by fully fifty per cent. In the item
of storm drainage the Third and Fourth
Wards are best taken care of and those
of you who have been In those districts
during rainy weather will agree with me
that they should gt the best of It on
Mr. Collins said It was Just the ques-
tion as to whether or not the Fifth Ward
citizens would go so far In showing their
disapproval of the administration's so-
called neglect of their petition for a
bridge as to defeat a movement wW h
means so much for city developnYnt.
Personally the president said he would
support the bond issue snd lie hoped all
the citizens of the city living In the Fifth
Ward would do likewise.
"For us to take the position that we
are opposed to the bond issue for political
reasons." said President Collins "is an
unfair unamerlcan stand and is not
worthy of good citizenship. We want to
consider that this administration Is try-
ing to dlylde this bond issue as evenly
as Justly as possible. We must be satis-
fied with our share -$125000 for sewerage
and water mains which seems to me la a
WANT MORI". ASSURANCE.
There were others who were 'not cer-
tain that the $126. " for Improvements
In the Fifth Ward Is assured. If they
were assured that It would be given
them they would vote for the bond Issue
they said. Some members said they
didn't believe the ward would get any-
thing and that they projMjsed to vote
against the measure to work against it
and they thought the chih ought to pass
resolutions condemning the commission
for Its seeming disregard of Hie petition
for a bridge. There were some vigorous
speeches made open criticism was in-
dulged it was charged that the bond Is-
sue at this time was a political move and
there were warm discussions. But on
soher second thought the counsel of tho
prudent members prevailed ami the club
look no action committing liself against
Uie proposed improvements while It did
niske a move for further Improvement
ly appointing the committee to secur
definite information on the bridge pro-
ject. There were thirty-two members present
and several visitors TLc president of
the Third and Fourth Ward club was
present among the latter and the thanks
of the body were voted these representa-
tives of other clubs for their Interest and
encouragement. Good spirit prevailed
throughout and the dub proposed to do
some earnest and constructive work es-
pe ially In its efforts for the consumma-
tion of the bridge project.

There Was a conference yesterday after-
noon at the rooms of the Puginp jlLgU9
between H. Cohn president of the Corpus
Christ! Navigation companj and repre-
sentative of Houston wholesale business
houses the result of wlih b gives pros-
pect for the establishment of a line of
vessel to ply between this city and the
lower coast and possibly reach the ports
east of. the ship channel. . During the coa-
ference Interesting discussions of the
freight rate-situation affecting Houston
commerce were heard and at Hie conclu-
sion It appeared to be the consensus of
opinion that Mr. Cohn had presented a
proposition that will In all likelihood be
accepted by the Jobbing Interests of this
ity. If conditions are found finally to be
as represented by various speakers
The Corpus Chrlstl ivravtgathm company
is the owner of the auxiliary schooner
Kity M a vessel carrying eighty tons
and drawing six feet when loaded to
capacity. She 1 eighty-odd feet In length
and has a crew of five merr being
equipped with two engines of thirty-horse
power each. The vessels came to the
port of Houston a few "weeks ago and
found navigation to the upchannel turn-
ing basin easy making a quick run up
for a cargo of lumber and returning
down stream with equal dispatch. The
Katy M has been in the hands of the
present owners for about seven vears und
was recently thoroughly overhauled and
MEETING HASTILY ASSEMBI.KD.
Mr. Cohn came to Houston yesterday
morning called on Mayor Rice at the city
hall and later Mr. Rice suggested to Sec-
retary Brown of the Business League t hat
he invite such business men as might be
Interested In Mr. Culm's proposition to
meet him during the afternoon. Mr.
Browy accordingly communicated the call
to such business houses and there was
a good attendance at the conference
showing the desire of these interests to
utlllie the channel whenever opportunity
Mayor Hlce. accompanied by Alderman
Gaston uttended the meeting and Intro-
duced Mr. Cohn. the mayor having met
the gentleman tit Corpus Chrlstl during
his summer cruise on the Zeeland. Mr.
Hlce by way Tjf Introduction said that
Mr Colin hail ji proposition to submit
which if accepted would he a start to-
ward the utilisation of the ship channel
to better advantage than heretofore a
consummation very much desired by
Houston business Interests.
Mr. Cohn Unfolded his plan after the
mayor had concluded saying lie proposed
for a stated consideration to trahsfer a
controlling interest in ttie Katy M to
business men of Houston and added that
he thought It would be a very profitable
Investment for them particularly when
the trade possibilities are taken Into con-
sideration. He said he had no nght to
make on the railroads for they are neces-
sary to the development of the country
and certainly entitled to earn a prollt 011
their Investment but he realized the in
ability of Houston commerce paying tho
exUting rail rates to reach Corpus Cnrlsii
territory on a competitive basis with
goids transported on water rate.
HOUSTON FAVORITE MAHKK't.
He said the people of that portion of
Ihe State like Houston goods and Hous-
ton business methods and they want to
trade here also for the reason that
stocks carried can always rill their orders
promptly which can. not be said of com-
Mr. Cohn stated that three round trips
a month could easily be made between
Houston and Corpus Chrlstl. calling also
at Rockport and other coast points and
suggested thai as the trade was built up
the service could be Increased hy the em
ployment of other vessels

acter of ttie Katy M
Mr. Colin answered
number of questions propounded by
different gentlemen and. besides Muting
bis proposition explicitly gave figures as
to the cost of maintenance ami operation
of the boat.
Favorable expressions were beard
throughout the meeting on the plan pro-
posed and filially it was determined to

tion further lln this committee were
appointed the representatives of the
houses of tile 1'eden Iron and Steel 1 om-
