GIANT MONOPOLY
Standard Oil and Russel Sage
to Combine New York
Gas Companies
New York Nov 21 An
effort is being made by the con
trolling spirits of the Consoli
dated Gas company to affect a
consolidation of all the gas
companies in the Greater New
York Their object is to create
a monopoly that shall forever
control the gas supply of every
house and shop in New York
They strive to kill all competi
tion and charge that they will
while keeping within the legal
limitThe
The Standard Oil company
is said to be behind the deal
and Russel Sage is said to be
their chosen agent to bring
about this giant monopoly As
a matter of fact this is but a
small part of the change there
is to be in gas properties with
in the next few weeks It is
reported that consent of Rus
sell Sage who is president of
the Standard company has
been gained to the plan of a
general metropolitan gas trust
which has been underconsider
ation for a long time It is a
j Rockefeller scheme with a
Standard Oil backing and will
when completed put the entire
rxGreater New York directly in
to the control of the giant oil
i octopus so far as street gas is
concerned
An amalgamation of all the
companiesby an extra issue of
i
Cdhsolidated Gas stock was
Cdnsill ed but it is more like
l that arn ey company will be
formed and a general surren
der of stock take place
The agitation of the project
on the eve ol legislative ses
sion will probably bring about
gjwhat the gas magnates most
fear a statutory legislation of
the price of gas down to 1
per 1000 feet It has been a
source of continual surprise
< among gas men that while oth
er cities were burning gas at
1 and less per 1000 feet this
city which is the richest gas
field in the country pays 125
per looofor a very inferior
product
RETURNS TO HAVANA
3k
Gen Weyler Prefers liis Pal
ace to The Field
New York Nov 23 The
World has a dispatch from
Jacksonville Fla as follows
A cipher cablegram lrom
Havana to a Cuban leader
here says that General Wey
ler has been forced to return
to Havana and that the city is
in great confusion Weyler
givesno excuse it i sad ex
cept that it is too h > t and un
T m il
healthy to do any fighting
It is openly asserted in Ha
vana that Weyler became
frightened because Maceo had
set a price upon his head
or his capture
Weyler s scouts informed
him that Maceo might make
an attempt on Havana and the
Spanish general retreated in
hot haste to the safety of his
palace
It is also stated in the cable
gram that Weyler s recall is
now assured as the Spanish
government is incensed against
him for his dilatory tactics
Cubans here are jubilant
for they think this is favorable
effect upon congress

Brownsville Cameron Co Texas
Cameron County is the extreme
southern county of Texas It is
separated from Mexico by the Rio
Grande on the south and has about
100 miles of gulf coast as its east
ern Boundary It was organized in
1848 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 corn the chief farm products
Two and sometimes three crops of
com averaging from fiftv to seven
ty bushels per acre are raised year
Ij while cotton will easily yield
from one to two bales per acres
Grasses grow all the year and stock
fiud pasturae without being fed or
sheltered during the winter But
the soil and climate of the Lower
Itio Grande Valey are by nature
best adapted for the production of
vegetables and fruits Vegetables
af all kinds grow all the year
oround and northern people are as
tonished to find tomatoes lettuce
npinacli English peas etc served
fresh from the gardens in midwin
ter This is undoubtedly the par
adise of track 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 vill obtain the
highest prices as there will be no
competition This is due to our
exceedingly mild climate Fre
quently the entire winter passes
without a single frost and there is
rarely ever any cold veather before
Christmas Fruit culture has not
been 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 the greatest perfection
1 rapes are also raised extensively
growing in almost every yard They
ripen from two to four weeks ear
lier than in any other section
Many planters here make all of
their own table wines Oranges
and lemons also grow in profusion
and this section could easily be
uiad to rival Florida in the pro
duction of oranges Sugar cane is
ulso one of the most important pro
pucts of this valley The Rio
Grande plantation of Mr Geo Bru
layand the Rabb Starclc plantation
prottuce gr at quantities of cane
which is all manufactured on the
Itio Grande plantation This cane
makci sugar which is produced by
expert to be even superior to the
best Louisiana product Havana
tobacco has also proven a success
here Col J G Tucker having
made some most successful experi
ments with it his sampled were
classed by New York buyers its
equal to the best Havana
The county is watered by the Hio
Grande with its ample flow along
the southern boundary and mini
eroiis small streams ca led 4arroya
and uresacas
The population of Cameron coun
ty according to the census of 1890
is 13424 Brownsville the county
seat has a population of about
7000 Point Isabel the seaport of
the county has about 400 inhabi
tants and Santa Maria a growing
little river settlement has about250
Improved lands sell for from 5

age taxable value of land is 1

teachers The average length of
the sdiod term is live moitlis The
total tuition revenue received from
the State is S13 000 There are a
number of public schools in the
county affording ample educational
advantages
Hmiip seckers are gradually be
ginning to find their way to this
land where farmers can work in the
open air 305 days in the year but
it is comparatively undeveloped as
yet Wth the building of the
Jail road to Corpvs Ohrfcfci however
a greit infill < of seltiers may be
