Brownsville, Tex., May Bo Financial
ly Ruined hy Flood Results.
SAN ANTONIO. Tex., Oct. 2. From nil
Indications now at hand from recent re
ports received from tho overflowed
country ln the Brownsville section. It ap
pears that thero Is a strong probability
that tho bed of the Rio Grando will be
shown when tho waters havo receded, to
be occupying the bed of tho Arroyo Colo
rado, which ages ago was Its original bed.
Should this prove truo. tho people of Uiis,
reclon of Texas who would bo bereft of
vtho river, would suffer greatly. Tho city
of Brownsville, one of the rapidly growing
towns of tho Slate, would be cut olt from
tho river, thc miles of irrigation ditches
and canals dug would be rendered worth
less and tho property vnlues dependent
upon the Rio Grando now materially cut
dThis would apply tb considerable area.
Tho National tltlo to this properly Is not
In ouestlon. About seven years ago a
Joint commission, appointed by tho respec
tive Governments of the United States
and Mexico, owing Id tho troublesomo
habit of tho river changing Its course, hit
on a compromise boundary and two
vears ago markod it with monuments.
The boundary Is where they stand, how
ever the river may shift about.

The church ltaelf has repeatedly pro- 'j .

Some Real Church Influence. $5 . I
It is tho belief of many Mormons that ''Tli '1
politicians both Gentile and Mormon Y. 'Il
havo sought to sccuro church Influence; jl
and when it has been denied to them,' as (rl
asserted in recent times by thc head of il
tho church, somo word of permission,- 'jl
particularly if given to a Mormon leader IH
to run for of flee, has been magnified Into '
such proportions, that it has really be-
come church Influence.
Wo witness in politics today In Utah '' iH
tho full effect; of church Influence, per- '
haps without thc consent of tho chief au- j
thorltles of tho church itself.
I will not attempt ln this brief noto to i'l
enter Into any argument on tho subject,
but will express tho hopo that within a il
few days I may have tho opportunity, to !
lay before my fellow-cltlzant? tho reasons I Hl
why I think that church Influence as a uM
reality or as a fiction, so supported by i
certain politicians within thc church, ns JH
to .bo cffeutlvo upon the mindB of tho fl
masses of the people, Is an Insistent and lll
dangerous thing. I may also show why
all citizens of Utah, Irrespective of their jf
membership or non-membership In any , , Jl
church, may well ally themselves with i, ' ll
the American party, to make a separation JH
absolute and final betwoen politics and (
tho church since union of the two has 'H
been demonstrated to he alike as rcpug- H
mint to the feelings as dangerous to the ' tl
well-holng of tho community. Truly vMI
