Who said anything about a sewer system for Brownsville? With the testimony of sugar ex perts and experienced cane growers from other sections in favor of the Lower Rio Grande Valley as a sugar producer, and the thousands of acres of growing cane to substantiate their testimony, none can doubt that this as to be what The Herald predict ed years ago the "Sugar Bowl of She Americas." 'The "Victoria Advocate's base ball aitor pays the Brownies the follow ing nice compliment: "Brownsville has as gentlemanly and good a set of ball players as ever came here." Brownsville Is proud to hear good reports of her crack team, and, even though the boys may lose a game now and then, their friends at home will continue loyal so long as the team jeaves the towns it visits with that sort of record.- government's expenditures, all inter ests should share alike in whatever protection" may incidentally be given to American industries thereby. The old plea about "Infant industries" has been worn threadbare. It mere ly provokes a smile, when one thinks of the gigantic fortunes of the mighty trusts that have already evolved from these infant industries under the pro tective tariff. They surely do not re quire any protection now, and there is nn reason whv they should . be shielded" from foreign competition while the cattle producer is forced to- compete in the hide market with free hides from South America ind Australia- . ' CIVIC "IMPROVEMENT COMMITTEE Finds Iiadies Willing to Co-operate. AVill Meet Tomorrow Afternoon The committee appointed at the meeting held last Saturday night in the interest of a Civic Improvement society to confer with members of the former society which was organized here several years ago for a similar purpose, that of gathering an interests into a large, live work ing body has found that the former organization is aetunct, in iact nas been for sometime. Those members of the old society, however, who were seen expressed approval of the pre sent movement and promised their hearty co-operation and support. The Committee will meet tomorrow after noon at five o'clock at Judge Noah Allen's residence for the purpose of considering preliminary plans for the formation of a new Civic Improve ment Society. It is the intention of the committee to issue a call for & general meeting of citizens very shortly to organize and get this move on a substantial footing. .'A. gas plant is proposed for Brownsville. With the growing scarc ity of timber in this region, together with the growing demand for fuel and consequent increase in price, it appears that a gas plant should be a sood investment. It is understood that a franchise will be applied for and no doubt it will be granted, after the city fathers have assured them selves that its terms are compatible with the best' interests of the people. President Taft has put his foot down on the rough lumber rate and also on the hosiery and glove duties, having informed the house flatly yes terday that he will not countenance a rate exceeding 1.25 on rough lumber and will also insist upon the senate schedule on gloves and hose which the house republicans want to quad ruple. The presidential conscience has probably some recollection of those campaign promises of tariff re vision with a downward inference . A little thing like a Gulf storm can not upset the equanimity of the pub lisher of the Velasco Courier. De spite the fact that its office was deluged by the torrential rain which accompanied the storm, and its press and engine put out of commission temporarily, the Courier made its ap pearance on its regular publication day. It was somewhat diminished in size, as It had to be printed on a job-1 ies? "Billiken" Zachar, the Brownies' crack, third sacker, is playing a great game. His fielding and batting are something superb. Every time "Bil liken" goes to the bat he lands on the ball. At Beeviile, Wednesday, after the first time he went to the bat, he was passed to first when he stepped up to home plate with his big stick. In all the towns that the Brownies play, the papers all state that they are among the cleanest and most gen tlemanly ball players that have been in that section this season. That is the only kind of players Brownsville will have. When the Brownies are licked, they can take their medicine and not ; raise a howl, but when they are de liberately robbed of a game because the other team "must have the game at all costs," they have a right to kick. Give us a fair deal and then beat us, and we are willing to admit that your team is the superior, but not otherwise. it is about as much credit for a team playing on their home diamond to let the umpire deliberately give a game to the locals by his rotten um piring, as it is for a six footer to take a stick of candy from a baby. Since taking two out Of three games from Lockhart, Corpus" Christi sets up a yell that they are now the champions of the Gulf Coast Country. You must remember, Corpus, you have never yet taken two out of three from the Brownies. They played you last on your own "ball garden," and' it is now up to you to give us a return series, if you really believe that you are the champions and can substn tiate it.. Unless the Victoria "champions-" are a weak-kneed bunch, they ar due to give the Brownies a series oni the latter's home grounds. The Brownies are all playing balE on their trip and are causing several! of the self-styled champion teams sleepless nights. !

Af ter that "Possum Bill" Taff settled down allowing them only two hits and fanning ten of their sluggers. Little Buster Brown is certalnly earninsr his salary these days pitch ing every other game.
