DALLAS, Sept. 7.—The old brass cannon of Gcnzales, which fired the first shot of the Texas revolution a; hundred years ago, will roar defiance again Oct. 2 to usher in the celebration of the Texas Centennial. The state-wide observance of the one-hundredth anniversary of Texas independence will consist of a number of celebrations at historic shrines of the state, commencing at Gonzales, and climaxed by the $15,060,00 Texas Centennial exposition In Dallas from June to November, 1936. Because Texans first took up arms at Gonzales in defense of their liberty, this charming little South Texas town Is known as the "Lexington of the Lone Star State." When war appeared imminent between Texas and Mexico in 1935, the Mexican government demanded that the citizens of Gonzales surrender a six-pounder brass cannon which had been given to them for defense against the Indians. The cannon was practically worthless, having been spiked and the spike bored cut, leaving a touch hole as big as a silver dollar. The demand for the gun was merely an excuse to start hostilities. Mexican dragflons attempted to capture the gun and the town. Texans from far and wide had rallied In Gonzales and hoisted the first flag of the Texas revolution, a crude white banner Inscribed "Come and. get it." The old cannon wrs loaded to the muzzle with pot legs and scrap iron and turned loose on the foe. The Texans charged and the Mexicans fled leaving their dead and wounded behind them. Not a, single Texan was harmed. Five months Ister Texas declared her independence. These stirring scenes wil be reenacted at Gonzales Oct. 2 In a celebration' which will last a whole week. The battle will be refought with soldiers of the national guard representing the Texas and Mexican armies. - v San Antonio, Houston. Nacog- dochcs and Euntsvllle all plan similar historic observances preparatory to the opening of the Texas Centennial Exposition at Dallas on June 6. Higgins Visitors M. R.
