TEXAS COAST ' -WATERWAYS. The Rockport ' Convention Is ;. Looked Upon as of Much Importance -. Galvestonj Texas, June- 24 The call issued by Governor Culberson yesterday foc-a con vention at Rockport on. August 25 for the purpose of consider ing the developing and opening of the chain of baj's, lakes and bayous lying parallel to and along the gulf coast, from the motith of the Rio Grande to the Mississippi-, may prove to be of importance to Galveston: Milch thought has beerf given tohis subject by eminent en gineers and it is believed that the time is hot far distant, when the project of opening ,up the: w4iole coast country , to. inland steamboat . navigation : will .be launched by -the -government. Itis-more than likely that all the influencs and support of Galveston will be given to any reasonable proposition thatthe Rockport convention frames. m42&ii&ttiVite& l tile cUaSl $ territory from theRio Grande to the Mississippi in conjunc tion with the improvement of such waterways as the Trinity and Brazos would be of im mense value to Houston and Galveston. Between this city and the Rio Grande there ex tends, with but few breaks, a chain of bays which require but a moderate amount of dredging to make them navi gable to boats of light draft. The cutting of canals through the low lands that separate these baj's would make a clear route from Brazos Santiago to this city. This work has been surveyed and is entirely practicable. The cost of devel oping the project and carrying it through to success would be very large, but it would be small in comparison with the manifold benefits it would re sult in. .The establisment of aisystem of inland navigation allng the Texas coast would brinf into touch with ;the world a wonder ful territory of fertile, semi tropical land, which only awaits the farmer and the horticiihur ist to make it one cf .the most productive sections of the coun try. The want of facilities for cheap and rapid transportation has hitherto prevented the col onization and cultivation of these lands. - With the inland b&vM opened up to navigation ivould be uatnral to develap and deepen the various bayous and -entrances of the bays so as to extend the territory open to waterway communication. The deepening of the many rivers of Texas so as to make them navigable as far frohi the mouth as possible within a reasonable cost is-iikely to be put before congress before long. These facts, and that the prosperity of such Coast towns as Browhsville-j Corpus Ghristi, Portlandj Rockport, Port La vaca, Matagorda, and Yelasco will depend largely upon the utilization of the inland water route will-give to the Rockport meeting a strength aijd-an in fluence that will be felt flrrough- out th.e.State. Brazoria, Matagorda-, Jackson, Calhoun,- Re fugio, Aransas San Patricio; Nueces and Cameron counties are deeply interested in the proposition tu establish an in land navigation route and any proposition tending to brine the project to the attention of congress in order to get govern mental aid in establishment 0 this - undertaking will receive their hearty support.
