VICTORIA AXD IEEL0TT
The Victoria Advocate in a re
cant issue had some apt and sensible
remarks about the railroad situa
tion aa affecting Victoria and
Brownsville. Mr. Welder, who his
jeferred to by the Advocate as a
membgr of the Lott railroad com
pany, is one of Victoria's leading
capitalists, being worth several
.million dollars. He owns-immense
Jand interests in San Patricio coun
ty, and has been one of the most
prominent factors in launching the
Lott enterprise. Here is the Ad-
Mr. John J. Welder, a popular
and prominent citizen of Victoria,
is a member oi the fct. Louis
Brownsville & Mexico Railroad
Company, or of the corporation of
frhich Col. Uriah Lott is President
The Advocate editor had quite a
jDngthy conversation with Mr.
"Welder this morning in regard to
the new railroad. He is firmly of
the opinion that tho road will be
bnilt from Brownsville to Sinton at
an early date and seei no reason
why it should not continue to
Houston. Mr. Welder says that if
the Houston extension is con
structed it will pass through Vic
tona counu and doubtlessly run a
branch to this city, probably by tho
old buadawupe alley route.
A Houston extension of the
proposed new railroad will mean a
great deal for the counties which it
is expected to traverse, as many of
these divides aro without rail con
nection, and it will open a vast and
fertile territory for settlement.
A great manv people are of the
opinion that the G. W. T. & P. ex
tension will not stop at Hines Bay,
in Refugio county, but that it will
continue to the Pinton country.
Taking this into consideration with
tho Sap's proposed extension from
Alice to Brownsville, it looks as if
the Southern Pacific people have at
last bwn aroused to the fact that
there's something more than wind
in Air. Lott's project, and are striv
ing hard to puncture his scheme.
But we think the' aro a bit too
late Mr. Lott was the "early bird"'
and appears to have caught the
worm. Ho has land grants in his
hip pocket to burn, the bonus he
asked has been raised, necessary
surveys have been made, and with
such men as John J. Welder, Ro
bert Kleberg, John Armstrong, John
Kenedy and James B. Weill sup
porting his project, the construction
of the St. L., B. it M. railroad is.
you may say, guaranteed.
There is room for two lines in the
Brownsville and Refugio section
plenty of railroad elbow space,
While the S. P. disregarded for
years an opportunity to monopolize
this territory, it still has a chance
to extend in that section, but it will
not be fed on bonus food or bo able

has the bonuses, and there will be

peculiarly fitted him for considera
tion of the best methods of teaching
English to Mexican pupils. Tho
pamphlet should be of special in
terest to all teachers in the schools
of this section, where thera are
frequently more Mexican than
American pupils, and where nearly
every recitation is of necessity as
much a language lesson as of the
subject being taught. The. place of
publication and price of Judge
Marsh' pamphlet are not mention

to him at Hidalgo.
