A. W. Amthor. civil and contracting
engineer, came to the Lower ltio Grande
Valley country liefore this country was
tap|M*d by the railroad, in tact, he was
one of the locating engineers ot the main
line and located the branch Tine entire
ly. After finishing up tTie work for
the St. Louis. Brownsville and Mexico
Mr. Amthor was engaged with 4hc
Brownsville Land and Irrigation com
pany lor several years. He is now
serving liis third term as county sur
veyor and is a candidate on tin* Demo
cratic Ticket to succeed himself.
During his term of service for the
county lie located and marked out the
boundary lines of the county and has
built more than half of the canal sys
tem of the Brownsville Land and Irri
gation company together with the con
st ruction work of the company. He was
engineer of the La FVria Paual com
pany and had charge of all their north
end canal const ruction.
Among other large construction con
tracts that ho has been called on to ac
cept. he cleaned up the entire tract of
I he Piper Plantation installing the
pumping plant and turning the system
over to the owners ready for occupancy
Mr. Amthor has been instrumental
I iu bringing Indore the land owners ot
this section the feasibility of drainage
for their tracts, not by a tangle of fig
lures and a maze of specifications, but
bv the very evident method of going in
laiifl doing t?ie work.
He proved that land could lie re
claimed by the actual reclamation of
the same. Land that was worth two
dollars an acre was made worth seven
tv-five and brought iliis price in the
open market and further more many of
those who bought it were able to pay
for their lands with the proceeds of the
first year’s work. Among other pro
jects now on hand lie lias the work on
Drainage district number one. where In
is digging 10 miles of ditches at an e\
pciiditure of forty thousand
acres know as the Barreda tract bc
fwceit Olmito and San Benito to lay
out to install drainage and canals and
to lay out the townsite of Barada. and
one hundred thousand acres to handb
ill the near future. This latter tract
Iving north of Harlingen.
His work lias been found so satisfac
tory to those who have secured his ser
vices in the past that he has been over
run with work and to this end he has
added matterially to his tone so as not
to be forced to turn away work for tlie*
I want of force to handle if. He docs a
general contracting business and lias
! several surveying parties constantly in
' tJjc field. Should he be favored with
: ? uc office for another term it goes win
lout question that he will till the place
as efficiently as any man that could In
put in that office.
