The imports and export* of Mexico
grow yearly with new conditions.
The sentiment of the majority of the
Mexican people is to quit fighting
and go to work. Examining the re
port of Bureau Statistics from 0. P.
Austin, chief of the bureau, show*
that the exportations of agricultural
implements, corn, wheat, vehicles,
cars, passenger and freight, clocks,
chemicals, cotton and cotton manu

greater than the total exportation

there is no doubt that American im

Brazos Santiago is a business pro

1 enrlose you a letter from our

Citixens M*y Assist Deep Water
Project.
The correspondence from Mr.Oar
r.er referred to by Mr. Cobnlinl is
printed below. The first, a letter
in which Mr. Garner suggests that
our leading citixens may be of great
assistance in pushing our deep wa
ter project, follows:
Washington, Jan. IS, 11*1^.
Hon. L Cnbolini,
Brownsville. Texas
Dear Mr. CoblUni:
The River and Harbor Com
mittee of tne House is making
up Its bill, and it is quite evi
dent that the report of the
Board of Engineers on the
Braxot Santiago project will not i
be made in time to be consider
ed by the House, even if it
should be favorable and within
the rule that would permit
consideration: therefore. I want
to suggest that you and your
leading citixens busy your
selves with letters to Senators
Culberson and Bailey, urging
them to offer and secure pas
sage of an amendment to the
Senate River and Harbor bill
providing for the commence,
ment of improvements at Bra
zos Santiago
Of course, this will be upon
the theory that by the time the
hill reaches the senate the Board
will have made a favorable re
port.
I am constantly Calling upon
the Senators to assist me —
thorqforei strong let tors from
your leading citizens to each of
the Senators will pave the way
for my interview with them re
questing their assistance.
If the Hoard s report should
be unfavorable, then I shall
want them put in an amend
ment for a survey such as I
suggested to you when here
lasL «
I hop*- that you will get a
number of citixens Interested
In writing these letters—peti
tions are given but little con
sideration. but letters from
leading citixens show more
clearly their Interest.
Of course, your Waterways
Association and your Chamber
of Commerce will each officially
notify the Senators of your
wishes
, You .thoroughly underf and j
the modus operand! of securing
appropriations for water im
provements. and I hope you will
let your people understand the
exact situation—that it is im
possible for me to secure" ap
propriations until the Board
has reported, and that report I*
favorable: moreover, that I can
not control the action of the
Hoard as to when they shall
make their reports.
Please make this clear, that
my position may be thoroughly
understood.
Very truly yours,
* JN'O. N. GAR.YKR.
