Daily Light most rapid Are the changes that even one week brings Forth in this Center activities. This great state Texas and Alstor states As Well seem suddenly to have realized that the deep water port so Long looked the Gulf coast Texas has at ast been i pm i. In this realization All kinds and conditions men have Home Here desiring to see and deter mine for themselves. Of course the speculative spirit is rampant and some by Only to Boll again Whilo Tho Groat majority thoroughly con Vinced the permanent nature the port improvements Are making investments for future business and shrewdly calculating where the Best business streets and the Groat City so soon to grow Are Likely to be. It is not these things that this letter is to treat but rather the conditions surrounding the sea port itself. Previous letters have spoken specifically deep water As a Mot the volume River flowing through Tho jetties to the sea and the facilities for handling Commerce. In tills letter attention is directed to the seen Rily afforded vessels loading and unloading at this port to its advantageous at that Point where existing lines railway can converge most readily and in the Center a vast Region unsurpassed in Hie natural Fertility its soil. The locution this port five Miles up the River from its Mouth and Banks never overflowed by tidal Waves River Rise located a Stream unaffected by Gulf gales for Ever insures the vessels trading Here from damage by sea storm while receiving discharging cargo. Velasoo is not a Hay Shore Over which sweeping gales raise heavy seas nor is it situated an Arm the Gulf a wide Mouth opening to Tho sea and exposing it to the violence the Julf winds but some Miles from the Mouth jetties them selves by feet apart up a deep Channel Between Well defined Banks in no place much farther apart than the jetties themselves. Once a vessel reaches the Mouth the jetties and enters she is Safe and thin in trance is As easy and Natur Al As possible Tho jetties opening in the direction the prevailing Gull winds. All that a sense absolute Security can do to induce shippers and ship masters to Clear for any port will Lead them to this newly created deep water port within the Brazos River. Once within the River Miles commodious docks stretching Inland and along both sides the River will await ship master with every modern appliance Lor rapidly Dis charging freight and transferring it without breaking bulk to the Remot est railway station this great West. The location Tho port Velasco reduces the difficulty making port to a minimum and affords absolute Security to ship and cargo once the Mouth the River itt made. When commercial agents Are a 3uainted with these facts and have demonstrated with what ease Anc safety port can be made and cargo Dis charged and received hero these very will speak loudly in its favor. Facilities Fok bail communication. Out Iho world As those who have never studied the Lay the land May consider Velasco it is none the Lees at the very door the railway lines the state As the following facts Ali show. Velasco As yet without any railway communication with the out Side world though it will not be in sixty Days from Date is Only Twenty Milea from the tracks the International and great Northern Mataiva a construction h2 Miles would bring Tho Santa be Road to the Mouth the Brazos. The Southern Pacific lines Are Only 42 Miles away at Pierce Junction. The Arkansas pass lines Are about 75 Miles Distant and Survey route is being made. The m. K. T. Is one Hundred Miles off at bog by and at Houston Only fifty five Miles Distant connection is made with thirteen different roads Oft Erin Choice routes As far Northwest As Seattle and into All the great Grain Region the country. The country from its natural conformation within a distance one two Hundred Miles from Velasco is admirably adapted to railway construction at minimum Cost and connection with the Union Pacific and Rook Island systems up the Valley the Brazos would be very readily made. East Northeast North Northwest West and Southwest lines communication could be very naturally established without any lengthy construct ions it is True some these lines would be indirect but they would answer All purposes present com Merce and As that Commerce increased would naturally give Way to More direct and Shorter rail routes. No Ort the Gulf coast could be opened presenting As great facilities for rapid Ionne Tiou with the existing railway lines the Southwest As Melanco pre sents. Tri Futaky country. The richest Cotton and sugar lauds n the world lie within easy reach Velasco. The whole Brazos Valley unsurpassed anywhere for the Rich Ness its soil naturally pours its treasure into the Lap Tho port opened at its Mouth. This Stream could be made navigable for Over 200 Miles from the Gulf and All along its Way an Zuj Meuse Commerce would be opened. The great Grain 11 eld r Northwestern Texas capable in them selves supplying the nation with read will find their natural Muiloc through this port. The two million Cotton Bales annually exported from Texas would reach jew York mud Europe through the seaport this state instead some other state were the facilities presented and these facilities Are hers at vegas in. Texas alone in her Cotton wheat Wool meat and Corn shipments will astonish the world within another decade and these shipments Are to find their natural outlet at the most centrally located safest and cheapest seaport the Gulf coast. That seaport is certainly the one now opened at the Mouth the Brazos. With the advantage water freights secured millions acres now lying Idle account Retro tones from Marker yet within from one to two Hundred Miles this port will be brought under speedy cultivation and the products this Region marvellously multiplied. No Richer held is opened to Tho agriculturist anywhere than throughout this whole Region up to the very Gates this seaport itself and these lauds Are today As cheap As they Are Fertile. A few years More and their value will be increased ten fold. A Correct version. Editor Likit last night i saw among the Mem Bers my congregation to Short hand reporter lilo express and i immediately know that As the Long it wan yesterday two expansive the Short it would be today Brief. To have a full ver Matlou As report my prelude last night i beg you to insert this copy. My friends a purported interview in this Moraine s paper Muse have irritated you no Leas than it does me. I was my Way to tie office that paper when i met a reporter and to save myself a walk i gave him a notice this evening s Levico signed my own name requesting him to insert it at the head the personal column and offering to pay if there were any charges. This he expressly promised to do and then cae Aully questioned me my departure. I need not say that i who avoid Strong language trivial occasions was hot guilty the expressions lie ascribed to me. Rut. Other remarks and statements he has reported falsely and invert edly. However let me apologize for him. During the Cincinnati Rota the mob falling to catch the murderer who had just been lightly sentenced turned toward the jury and first sought out a Long tall personage an ignorant grocery Man if i remember however his escape. A Wise acre in the crowd to appease their disappointment exclaimed what do you want with Long Tom anyway he is too tall to have any any one who knows my reporter will understand the application. Idiocy is inexcusable when it has an Organ to inflict itself upon the Public and the idiot and the Organ Are then Crimin ally responsible. But what can you expect a paper too Tiggard to pay a respectable amount press Dis patches which fills its columns with the Meriest cheap Plato mat Ter notoriously steals its and whose Only lucidity in time Lino is an occasional shriek like to the Liano to the i make this mild and dignified reply Here knowing that that paper will publish Only sterner if any reporter is Here present who wishes to publish this reply verbatim Tho whole lot know nothing him meet me out Side and giving him a copy in thanks to him for the service he renders me in the publication by showing that though weak in health i am still Strong enough to fight my own. I shall gladly sign my name to thin. Yours very respectfully Moses a Jacobson. The drove Valley secure. Vienna sept. Days Sunshine has averted the threatened disaster in the Valley Tho Drave. The Progress the land slide bus sea opened the rocks blocking the current have been blown up by Dyna mite and the channels which have embarked Are carrying off imprisoned water
