McKinleyites claim Ohio is
for McKinley But they
selves think it to be an
Vigly doubtful state
Thirtyfive Ohio Republicans
vho are here working on the
sewer are being shipped to
Ohio to vote They are hav
ing their transportation paid
both ways together with their
other expense and pay lor time
absent from work Hanna and
his plutocratic backers are
squandering about 3000 on
these 35 voters and yet the
state of Ohio is not doubtful
Hanna and his confederates
are not scared Oh no
Hanna and his allies haven t
enough money to debauch
enough voters to elect Wm
McKinley the tool of trusts
and plutocrats Ohio is sure
to cast her vote for Bryan
And Hanna can t import
enousffr votes with all the mon
ey of Wall and Lombard
streets to change the result

London Oct 30 A high
official of the foreign office le
ferring to the statement made
by the Chronicle this morning
that theVe is good reason to
believe that a tribunal similar
to the Bering sea commission
will be appointed to adjust the
Venezuelan boundary affair
said this afternoon that he
had no knowledge of the ap
pointment of such a tribunal
Asked if such a tribunal should
be appointed would all the
territory claimed by Venezue
la be included in the arbitra
tion he replied
That is the essence of the
whole matter Venezuela on
ly claimed all along territory
to the bank of the Equibo
Everyone knows that portion
was settled by the Dutch and
Venezuela throughout has
been so stubborn in the mat
ter that it has been impossible
to arrive at any conclusion If
the entire disputed territory te
submitted to arbitration it
might involve giving up the
greater part of the colony
However the matter is now
under discussion and the
wh > le state of the matter is be
ing discussed I must await
the report before expressing
an opinion

Cameron County 13 the extreme
southern county of Texas It is
separated from Mexico by the Rio
Grande on the south and has about
100 miles of golf coast as its east
ern boundary tt was organized in
184S and contains 3308 square
miles Farming and stock raising
are the principal industries of the
people the location climate and soil
being admirably adapted for both
The greater portion of the soil is a
rich loam and produces an exceed
ingly heavy yield of both cotton
and com the chief farm products
Two and sometimes three crops of
corn averaging from fiftv to seven
ty bushels per acre are raised year
ly while cotton will easily ield
from one to two bales per acres
Grasses grow all the year and stock
find pasturao without being fed or
sheltered during the winter But
the soil and climate of the Lsuer
Rio Grande Val ey are by nature
best adapted for the production of
vegetables and fruits Vegetables
af all kinds grow all the year
oronnd and northern people are as
tonishpd to lind tomatoes lettuce
spinach English peas etc served
fresh from the gardens in midwin
ter This is undoubtedly the par
adise of trjck gardeners and so
soon as rail transportation is ob
tained Cameron county vegetables
by the car load will be shipped to
northern markets during winter and
early spring and will obtain the
highest prices as there will be no
competition This i3 due to our
exceedingly mild climate Fre
quently the entire winter passes
without a single frost ami there is
rarely ever any cold veather before
Christmas Fruit culture has not
heen attempted in this county on a
large scale but there is one large
banana plantation on which this
delicious fruit yields most abund
antly and in thegreatpst perfection
Grapes are also raised extensively
growing in almost everj yard They
ripen from two to four weeks ear
lier than in any other section
Many planters here make all of
their own tilde wines Oranges
and lemons also grow in profusion
and this section could easily be
madi tn rival Florida in the pro
duction of oranges Sugar cane is
also one of the iiir > st important pro
ducts of this valley The Rio
Grande plantation of Mr Geo Bru
ivand the Rabb Starclr plantation
produce graat quantities of cane
which all mannfactuml on the
Rio Grande plantation This cane
makes sugar which is produced by
experts 0 be even superior to the
best Louisiana product Ilavaua
tobacco has also proven a success
here Col J G Tucker having
made some most successful experi
ments with it his samples were
classed by New York buyers us
equal to the best Havana
The county is watered by the Rio
Grande with its ample flow along
the southern boundary and mini
erous small streams calcd arroya
and nresacas
The population of Cameron coun
ty according to the census of 1800
is 13421 Brownsville the comity
seat has a population of about
7000 Point fsabel the seaport of
