OFF IC1AL COUNTY AND CITY JOURNAL Jesse O. Wheeler, Proprietor. Consolidated in 1893 with the Daily Cos mopolitan which was published in Brownsville, for sixteen years. Entered at the Postoffice. Brownsville. . as second-class matter. Texas THURSDAY. AUGUST 15. 1907 INTEREST DISPLAYED BY THE TEXAS COMPANY. In the news columns of The Herald will be found the story of the donation of a car of crude oil to the city of Brownsville byJThe Texas Company in order that the city might not be hampered in the sincere effort that is being made to exterminate the mosquitoes from the town, This spring the city authorities tried to get from the Waters Pierce Company crude oil, but because the city did not think it could afford to use such a large quantity the Waters Pierce people refused to sell anything less than a carload. Hampered by the lack ofi oil, the mosquitoes made some headway acainst the efforts made by the sanitary committee to rid the city of them. When the dengue made its appearance the city was compelled to use refined oil, and has continued to use it until the present time. Through the efforts of two of the aldermen the officers f The Texas Company were uo tified of the difficulties that beset the officials of the city, and they have shown their brotherly interest by sending to the city a whole carload of crude oil to help in the work. There is a lesson to be learned from this incident. The foreign corporation is here to exploit the state and its people for every cent they will stand. The Waters Pierce Company did not care the flip of a coin what the conditions were here. If Brownsville would not part with the pound of flesh it could perish for anything that gilded company cared. The Texas Company is a company of our brothors. Money is nothing to them when the welfare of the state and their fellow citizens in at stake, Hence they send without any flourish of trumpets the sup ply of oil they feel will help us in our fight for the good health of the city and the state.
