Coast and Geodetic Surveying corps, which has been at work some time in the vicinity of Point Isabel, on the nature of the work and its object.

Halter some thirty years ago. This 9Sth meridian is geodetic work to deter mine the curvature of the earth, and extends from Point Isabel to Canada where the Canadian government takes up the work north, and the Mexican government takes up the Ford Dix, of St. Louis, was an incoming passenger yesterday.

Arc Seeking Information on the Growing and Handling of the Fleecy Staple in America. r The six English spinners who are touring America with the view of thoroughly acquainting them selves with American methods of growing and handling cotton ar rived in Brownsville yesterday. The personnel of the party is H. V. McAlister of Oldham, Eng; George Moores of Manchester, W. J. Orr of Rockdale, Henry P. Greg bf Manchester, Thomas D Barlow of Manchester, and G. Leonard Bolden of Manchester. Mr. McAlister is chairman of the party and Mr. Moore is secretary. Accompanying them are: J. R. Maccoll of Providence, R. L,., pre sident of the New England cotton Manufacturers' Association, and H. D. Martin, a prominent cotton man of Paris, Tex. Speaking of the visitors and the object of their trip the San Anto nio Express says: Asked if he did not think it would be viser from a financial point of view for English spinners to invest in lands in Texas, where it is positively known that cotton can be grown, than to continue the experiments of sinking money in Africa in the endeavor to reclaim lands and adapt them to cotton culture, Mr. McAlister, chairman of the group, said: "I see only this advantage, that in this country it is certain that cotton can be grown, while in some of the British possessions it is an experiment. But the English -are not asleep. Like Americans, they have their eyes open to make money, whether it be planting cot-j y ton" in Texas or'in the British pos- , session. We have been to Washing-; v 'ton and have made inquiry about ; sf your alien laws, and we are going ' i again. We wish to know if there 5 j is any difficulty about us holding j i the land and upon what.couditiona 4 ; we can hold it. This phase we are, A ! carefully considering." ! r I The party left at a very early j hour this morning on the retirn , Xas 2)03 ...IRackmes 41 4 H M. 1 The public will find an extensive assortment of Dry Goods, Shoes, Hats, Jewelry and Saddles it prices without competition at Las Dos Naciones, SAHUALLA (Kb COMPANY K Front, of Market. ti- frTTfTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTfTTTt A Pull Line Of Studebaker Buggies, Surreys, Phaetons, Road Wagons, Runabouts and Prospectors' IP Wagons SOLD AT LOWEST CASH PRICES CALL AND SEE THEM Also Fish Bros.'
