Post Occupies Host Strategic Position The Old Site Will Not Be Utilized But New Garrison Will Be. Established. Whether or not Fort Brown at Brownsville is going to be abandon ed, as contemplated some months ago, is a matter of discussion among officers of the army and others. There are a number of officers who do not think this will be brought about. It is pointed out that the stra tegical and geographical position in Brownsville will demand that a a military reservation be maintain ed there, as it is at Fort Bliss at EI Paso, or Fort Mcintosh at Laredo. Another thing being take into consideration is that when the rail road communication is directly es tablished between Brownsville or Matamoros and Mexico Citj , the Capital of the Mexican Republic will be brought 300 miles nearer the United States. This will result in a great volume of traffic flowing through Brownsville, with a conse quent greater custom, business and a necessity of troops at thisj important port of entry It is not thought the present site of Fort Brown will be utilized for a greater garrison, but that a new reservation will be established.
