SION TO THE GULF!
;No".ne,w , place "in :the United States ever attracted so much public attention, and was the subject of so many favorable press comments and editorial notices from
the leading metropolitan journals of the country as the ,
The reason for this is because of the fact that it has been recognized by the shrewdest business men and managers of the trunk railroad lines of the west that a
Great City would be built on the Texas coast in obedience to the demands of commerce.
A DEEP WATER PORT
On the Texas coast means a greater annual saving of wealth to the people residing west of the Mississippi River than is often gained by wars of conquest by
the mightiest armies in the world. A committee of expert financiers and business men of the highest talent appointed by the great deep water convention, held
at -Denver in 1888, after months of careful research and labor, reported that the saving in freight rates by reaching tide water on the Texas coast with surplus
products of the west, instead of the Atlantic Sea Board, would amount to $120,000,000 Per Annum. There is a volume of business amounting to $400,000,000
annually from the great west and foreign countries that will find its nearest and most natural entrepot on the western coast of the Gulf of Mexico
No such natural demand for the building of a great city to accomodate the changed conditions of commercial affairs ever existed before at any place in the
United States. The largest railroad interests of the west have recognized the inevitable and have been preparing for it for several years. The one point that
towers above all others as the natural location for the great city on the Texas coast is
Ft is located--on tthe main land directly opposite Aransas Pass, on the highest and dryesf land to be found anywhere on the Texas Coast. This section of coun
try has been famous as a health and summer resort for the past half century.

D. B, Henderson, Iowa; Congressman Dorsey, Nebraska; Congressman Rife, Penn.; Congressman Burrows, Mich.; and incorporates the Aransas PasB Harbor Co.
xVransas Harbor is the place that is backed by the Aransas Pass Harbor Co. io whom Congress has Granted the Exclusrve right of Obtaining Deep Water at Aransas Pass. This Company being the largest stockholders in the city enter
prise. The railroad interests are also co-operating with the Harbor Co. In fact the building of the City of Aransas Harbor is the result of a combination and business alliance of all the forces and interests essential to the building of the largest
city on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico brought about after months of negotiations.
The Harbor Company is Now Building a Double Track Terminal Railroad
From the new city across the bay to deep water. This line will be completed in 90 days and the engineer in charge Guarantees Deep Water in One Year. No
sea port in the world has a larger developed country tributary to it than Aransas Harbcr. The commerce 01 the country
containing 15,000,000 people will find its way to the sea at this point.
An average distance of nearly 1000 miles freight haul is saved by reaching tide water at Aransas Harbor instead of the Eastern coast. Gen. G. M. -Dodge, of New York, the great railroad builder of the sontiiwest saya that "at Aransas
Pass will spring up one of the largest cities in the shortest time of any ever built in America. Aransas Harbor is the last great city that will he "built in this country for the nest twenty-five years and the opportunity of a century for real estate

Col. W. P. Tomlinson, of the Topeka
Democrat, is quoted as follows in regard
to the coining senatorial election: "1 am
inclined to think that the Republican
leaders know what -they are talkiug about
when they claim votes enough to re-elect
Ingalls. And I am uot in a positiou to
blame Democrats who vote for him. If
they are forced to decide between Ingalls
and some hayseed from the swamps, they
would naturally vote for the Republican,
as I would. I have no faith in tli2 3Jeo

.solely for their own benefit, nud is in the
hands of a tyrannical executive committee
