WILL NOT REMOVE SILT YET
Street and Bridge Committee Not
Ready to Order Its Removal.
Alderman B. L. Cain, chairman of
the streets and bridge committee of
the city council said to a Herald
reporter yesterday that the silt on
the creosoted block paving would not
be removed at this time. The blocks
still sweat freely, Mr. Cain said, and
a competent authority has advised
this action.
Mr. Cain said further there is no
, harm in allowing the sand to remain,
and if it is removed now there is no
doubt but that much inconvenience
would result because of the seeping
creosote. The paving company stands
-ready at any time to do this work
lupon instructions from the commit
tee. At some points the silt will likely
i wear off, but most of it will have
to be scraped, and Mr. Cain thinks
this can 'be done very easily.
1 The sand will remain on the streets
|until the committee sees fit to or
der its removal.

Corpus Christi Democrat
Mr. and Mrs. S. M. Spencer return
ed this morning from Brownsville,
Harlingen. Mercedes, Mission. Pharr,
MeAIlen and other points in the low
er country, where the former went
on a ten days’ business trip.
Mr. Spencer, who is a resident of
Memphis, Tenn., owns extensive pr ■
iperties in Southwest Texas, includ
ing the famous fruit farm, “La Me
dia", in Travis county, which he
values at $">00 per acre. He has al
so purchased farm tracts in tlie lower
country.
“Southwest Texas is one revela
tion after another,” he said on his
return this morning. “1 visit
points with which I am familiar and
return home. Then, after an interval
l again visit those points—and I
hardly know them. This country is
doubling itself every day so far as
development is concerned.
“Some of the big irrigation schem
es in the lower country represent
millions of dollars spent by eastern
capital, if a man buys land anywhere
in this part of the state, he is get
ting in on the ground floor of ah
era of tremendous activity.”
Col. Camacho Not
Expected in Matamors
Col. Jose M. Camacho, who is the
commander of the 18th Regiment is
now fighting the Zapatistas in the
State of Morelos, Mexico. It aippears
that the report which was current
in Matamoros that he is coming down
to Matamoros, in connection with
th° happenings at Matamoros . last
Sunday, was incorrect as his friends
there say that he will not. come.
