FOR USE OF RIO GRANDE FOR
Congressman Slayden Introduces
Concurrent Resolution Asking
State Department to Negotiate
Treaty With Mexico.
Washington, Feb. 28. Represent
ative Slayden of Texas submitted a
concurrent resolution in the house
Saturday to direct the secretary of
"state to negotiate a treaty with Mexr
ico for the equitable and mutually
satisfactory distribution of water
from the Rio Grande river for irriga
tion purposes. Mr. Slayden's idea is
that the,treaty should be broad
enough to permit associations, com
panies or individuals to . construct
dams and other works that will enable
them to obtain water from the river
to irrigate the land on either side, the
work to be done under the direction
of an international board.
Mr. Slayden does not expect to get
his resolution through congress at
this session but hopes to work up
enough interest to have-it passed at
the special session or soon after the
convening of the new congress. Here
tofore the 'Rio Grande has been con
sidered as a navigable stream and, be
ing an international boundary, is
e-ovfi'rnefl hv th last treatv between
' the United States and Mexico relative
to this subject. The measure is of
considerable interest to the people of
the Rio Grande Valley.
Billy Tate, who until recently has
been engaged with an engineering
corps at Santa Maria, has resigned
that position, and will in future be
employed as manager for the Browns
ville Transfer Company, of this city.
Mr. Tate entered upon his new duties
today. His many Brownsville friends
are glad that Billy will be able to
stay in town again.

seats were all filled in the morning,
and at night scores of people stood
around on the outer edge of the tent
until the close of the service, being
unable to get seats.
Rev, Edward Hamilton led the
choir and congregational singing.

; on the text "I am not ashamed of the
Gospel of Christ," Romans, 1st cnap

fore men, acknowledging their faith

Brownsville, and spoke against the
practice of 'attending bull fights "on
