REERESENTING TEXAS COMMER
CIAL SECRETARIES AND BUS!
To Confer with Local Chamber ol
Commerce Concerning Develop
ment of Texas Industrial Interests
—Greatly Surprised at Growth of
•T. A. Arnold of Ft. Worth, secre
tary of the Texas Commercial Secre
taries and Business Men's Associa
tion. and B. F. Johnson, secretary of
the Kingville Commorcial Club, are
visitors in Brownsville.
Those gentlemen are here for the
purpose of meeting President J. B.
Scott, and Secretary I,. A. Whitney,
of the Brownsville Chamber of
Commerce, and discussing with them
commercial club work in general.
The Brownsville organization is a
member of the Texas Association, but
an effort will be made to obtain in
dividual memberships in this city to
the Commercial Secretaries’ Associa
The association is supported hv
business and profesionai men and
the commercial organization of the
state according to Mr. Arnold, and
it expends some $f.0,000 arnnnllv
in furthering its purposes: namely,
in extendi; (rr the commercial and
manufacturing interests of the r>n
itire state of Texas. Development in
formation and news Is furnished* to
more than 1000 papers, and he as
sociation in many other ways dis
seminates information concerning
the upgrowth of this state.
This is Mr. Arnold's first visit
to this part of Texas and though he
I probably the best posted man on
Texas in the United States or any
where else, he was greatly surpris
ed to find the growing and ran idly
i building country that he finds here,
j He had read much concerning the
Lower Rio Grande Valley, but what
lte has already seen convinces him
that this is really the “Garden Spot
of the World.”
The Valley is certain to reap much
benefit as a result of Mr. Arnold's
trip from the fart that the Commer
cial Secretaries' Association does not
confine itself to any particular part
of Texas, but is a booster for every
acre of land in the commonwealth.
Messrs. Arnold and Johnson will
remain in Brownsville over Sunday.

Washington, July 12.—All bars
restricting admission to the United
States of minor foreign born child
ren of naturalized citizens, whether
imbeciles, idiots or other forbidden
classes, were swept away today by a
far reaching interpretation of the
immigration and naturalization laws

'secretary authorized the entry into
the country of an alleged imbecile
daughter of a native Rusian, but na

Even granting that she was imbe
cile the Secretary held the immigra
tion laws were not applicable be
cause the father was a naturalized
citizen. This decision completely ov
