Rockport Committee" Wants. To
Confer With Local Merchants.
Will Establish Schoonor Line to j
Brownsville if San Antonio Will-
Route Freight That Way. The
San Antonio Express.
Tii proposition to hnvc the busi
ness houses of San Antonio take
hold of the Brownsville trade
through the opportunity afforded
by the citizens of Roekport for a
short route via that port to the
metropolis of the Lower Rio Grande
; has created 110 little interest in
local commercial circles.
The first anggestion made by
Mayor Hooper of Rockport to the
Business Men's Club of this city on
this subject was supplemented yes
terday by another proposition along
the same lines.
Mayor Hooper says that a citizen
of Rockport will establish a schoon
er line between Rockport and
BrowusviJle, provided that the San
Antonio inerchauts will go after
the Brownsville trade, and agree
to route their freight via Rockport.
Mayor Kooper and a committee of
Roekport business men are ready
to eomc-t to San Antonio to confer
with tbe business men of this city
in regs.vd to th? matter.
Seer stary Knight of the Business
Men's 'Glnb is Rnthority for the
stateajjeut that the club will do ail
in its power to bring about the con-
ferer ce and is anxious to hear from
the I ocal wholesalers.
l!he following is the enrrespon
decue received from Mayor Hooper
on, this subject yesterday :
Rockport, Tex., Jan. 25. Sec--Tstarv
Business Men's Club, San
Antonio, Tes. :
''Dear Sir: Since writing to you
I on the 22nd relative to the Browus-
viile trade I have been in commu
nication with a party vrho will put
on a line of schooner to ply be
tween bers and Brownsville pro
vided that he can be assured that
San Antonio merchants will make
an effort to get the business of that
section and will route their freight
through here. Your merchants are
not asked to invest one cent, sim
ply sell Brownsville people the
goods and send them through here.
"Rockport has the facilities to
handle this trade and we want it if
there is any way to get it. Tour
people have the advantago of a
short haul over any other city that
attempts to compete with you for
the trade. If a personal interview
with your merchauts would do any
thing to further matters I
be pleased to will on thein in com
pany with a committee of business
men from this piace.
"J. W. HOOPER, Mayor."
The following letter bearing on
the subject was received by the Ex
"Rockport, Tex., Jan. 25. San-;.
Antonio, Tex. :
' 'Dear Sirs : I beg to thsnk you
very much for your kindly in
terest in the matter of having
Brownsville husiuess routed
through this port. Thepeopl.
this section appreciate the good
work you have done and are doing
in behalf of this country.
"Referring to the Brownsville
matter I beg to enclose a copy of
letter addressed to ths secretary of
the Business Men's Olnb, which is
sslf-explantory Ton -will note
that all we ask of them is to st-11
the Brownsville people their goods
instead of allowing Galveston aud
New Orleans to do it. To me that
stem a fair proposition. We
want this trade through here and
anything you can do to assist us
will be appreciated. Very truly,
"J. W. II 00 PER, Mayor."

ing, she being nnable to attend

her attorneys, Messrs. D. A. Rich
ardsou and Antonio Baldarnma,
and the court officials were pres
ent. The woman callapsed com
pletely when sha heard the sen
tence and screamed like a maniac,
It required the combined strength
of two guards to prevent her from
assaulting the officials.
She was finally quieted, however,
and then she asked the pardon of
those prasent for her conduct. De
fendant's lawyer will appeal to
the higher courts at Chihnhnu,
and iu event the finding of the low
er court is affirmed, Gov. Ahuma
da will be asked for a pardon.
Money is required to proseccte

search of Mrs. Rich's cell last
night revealed the fact that a
quantity of nitric acid and other
poisons aad been concealed there,

would commit suicide if convicted
and bad proenred the poison for
that purpose. She will be impris
oned at Chihuahna.

THE FIRST CORSET.
The first corset not counting
ancient modification of the Grecian
zone or girdle was introduced
into France by Catherine de'
Medict. It was a strange affair,
and fashioned after the style of a
knight's cuirass. The frame work
was entirely of iron, and the vel
vet, which decorated the exterior
only, served to hide a frightful
and cumbersome article of torture.
In the days that followed ladies
of the court laced themselves
frightfully and wore the dreadful
prison night and day in their
efforts to obtain what they consid
ered a perfect figure.
