“I will help John Garner 10 do
anything that he wlahes.''
Thia is the way that Hon. E. S.
Candler of Corinth, Min., congress
Van from the First Mississippi dis
trict, writes to his old friend, Dr. L.
K. Rurress, of Brownsville, In reply
to a letter from the latter requesting
Mr. Candler to use his efforts in be
half of an appropriation for deep
water at Brazos Santiago, when Con
4 / gressman Garner gets th« subject
befope congress The fact that our|
representative in congress has such
staunch friends as Mr. Candler and
other members who have" expressed
similar sentiments when speaking of
Mr. Garner, lends much encourage
Mont tn tl^) local advocates of our
ess’ success also suggests

macut letters be sent to the
Texas senators by Valley citizens
The wider Influence that is brought
to bear In our ravor, the better. I
With Its population made up of peo
-N. pi# from such a widely diverse terri
tory. lhp Lower Rio Grande Valley
should be able to wield a greater in
fluence in this way than almost any
other section of the state. There is
hardly a state lit the Union that has
not contributed to the' population
that is now working for the devel
" cpment of thin rich Valley. Most of
these people probably have personal
scquainlance with on>' or more mem
bers or congress. Letters written to
such members by their old friends
m<w located in the Valley, urging tile
claims of the Brazos de Santiago pro
ject for an lipproprlation, no doubt
would greatly strengthen our cause
in congress. Every foot of land In
the Valley will enhance in value the
moment deep water Is assured at Bra
zos Santiago, and every person Inter
ested In the development of the Val
ley should do al| In his power to pro
mote the enterprise. It costs very
little to write a letter, and the let
ters as proposed will be of Immeasur
able benefit.
If you don’t send the Monitor""
to a friend, you are missing it.
— McAllen Monitor

No, the friend is missing it Every
one who is interested in McAllen
should subscribe to the Monitor. And
the same may be said of the papers of
every community In the Valley. The
papers published at the various towns
of the Valley are all live boosters and
a credit to their respective towns.

The Cincinnati Housewives’ Coop

the butter trust by declaring a boy

I Only tlfree days more, including
today. In which to pay poll taxes, and
retain the right to vote. Considering
the important elections to be held in
Cameron County and Brownsville
this year, it does not seem possible
that any intelligent man who ts oth
erwise qualified to vot« would wil
lingly sacrifice his right of suffrage
by failing to pay his poll tax. For
county voters, the sum is only $1.0®.
Voters residing in the~city must pay
an additional 73 cents for the city
poll atx. Who would renounce the
sacred privilege of American cltixen
shlp to save such A paltry sum?
The Kansas City man who asks for
a divorce Vcause bis wife will not

not unreasonable. A woman wh>

the way to the divorce court.
