ÏIMIE «0 ■ in un BUM Governor Cantu Plans to Link United States Border With Port of San Felipe CALEXICO, April 10—A concrete paved toll road, 140 miles long, is to he built, from Mexicali on the international boundary line to the port ol San Felipe on the eastern coast of the Lower California Peninsula. San Felipe is a gulf port with such exceptional natural advantages that railroad and other business men believe that, with adequate transportation facilities, it will become a substantial asset to the Mexican republic and a trading and export center of importance to the T'nited States. Governor Esteban Cantu of Lower California and men at the head of big fishing interests are financing the project. At the same time reconnai- sance larties of the Southern Pacific Railroad Company are in the field making a tentative survey of a railroad line to connect the gulf port with boundary line cities. San Feline has long been recognized as a port of vantage from which to exploit the resources of the Gulf or California. The gulf abounds in edible fish of several kinds, the tuna being especially sought for. The port also, in accordance with the opinion of men who have been investigating conditions there, offers several attractive opportunities for profitable exploitation.
