All the old citizens of this sec
tion know tbat for many years after
the close of the civil war Cortina
and other brigands peiiodically
croes ed tbe Rio Grande and robbed
andikillod along this river when
ever and wberoxor they pleaaed
Finally they were practically enp
pressed and in JS73 jnet twenty
years ago congress authorized what
was known ae the Frontier Com
mission The objpctofithat com
mission was to collect tbe data
upon which thadjnited States could
make a demand t upon Mexico for
indemnity forth damage done on
American soil by Iier citizens All
old residents are acquainted with
the result That commiaeioR in
tbe performance of it duty com
menced it6 operations at Browns
rille and camo on np the river

1
the objects of this article It was
during tbatcnramicsiona trip along
this river that the dicuasion of a
border lino railroad iiist began
It was then as it is now urged as a
military necessity and it was tried
to be nude plain tbat such a road
wonId prove a paying investment
for private capital from the begin
nisi At that tims thdnearest rail
road station to Larodo waa Coinm
bus iii Colorado county that place
being then tbo terminus of the Ga
veston Ilarrisbiiig and Sii Anto
nio railroad As a natural result
Laredo was very anxious to see the
Picket Line a it was termed
eVeji at that early diy he in r 5 it
v oiild and will todayv give this
place communication with the gull
at BrazoG de Santiugo These facts
arc called to memory because ouine
poople are disposed to thick that in
their gigantic minds they originally
conceived the idea of a border liro
railroad when as a matter of fact
it has be en diaqusscd at different
times for more thau twenty years
and the same military necessity
exists now that urged its couatruc
tion 60 many years ago From
time to time it has been feebly agi
tatad through different channele
but tbe question has recently re
ceived so mucl attention and the
necessity for its construction and
its prospects as au investment arc
being so widely advertised tbat
there is what might bo termed a
probability tbat it will be built ere
many more moons have como and
waned Iu this connection it would
not bo fair to close this article with
out placing the credit where it be
longs The present agitation and
dicenssion of the subject was be un
by Wheeler of Ins Bsowjcsvili3
IIerald and ha should receive duo
credit therefor v

of the Ilogg tribo rose up in the
United States senate and made a
