THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pampa, f e*a§ ; JtMf *7, 1936; First White Girl. Mrs. W. H. Patrick of Clarendon, who is said to have been the first White girl born in the Panhandle of Texas, was among the visitors at the Thursday features of the Centennial celebration. She is the daughter of the late Colonel and Mrs. Thomas Bugbee, who established one of the early frontier homes in what is now Hutchinson county. Mrs. Patrick herself makes no claims to the distinction, but says she has heard that she was the Panhandle's first-born daughter.

If Douglas is certified, he will be the only primary opponent of Attorney General William McGraw, who seeks a second term. Other matters for the committee to consider are whether a personal note for $100 made by Jefferson T. Baker of Dallas, candidate for commissioner of agriculture, constitutes a proper filing fee, and whether A. A. Bullock of San Antonio, candidate for superintendent of public investigation, may change his name to Pat Bullock, by which he says school teachers know him. Of the applicants for places on the ballot, four want to succeed overnor Allred; five, United States Senator Morris Sheppard, and four, Chairman Ernest O. Thompson of the railroad commission. Duttittg The Covers Of Texas History For THE TEXAS CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION OF 1936 Unopposed for re-election are C. M. Cureton, chief justice of the supreme court; Richard Critz, associate justice of the same tribunal, O. S. Lattlmore of the court of criminal appeals and Lieut.-Gov. Walter F. Woodul. W. Gregory Hatcher of Dallas withdrew from the race for land commissioner and pledged his support to John W. Hawkins of Austin, William H. (Bill) McDonald of Eastland remains in the contest. During the week, Hunter and Fischer lambasted Governor Allred in opening campaign speeches, charging, among other things, that he had neglected to provide an adequate pension program for Texas' old folks. They praised the highway department and pledged non-interference with its operations. <:> AUSTIN, May 30.—English merchants who desired to trade with the Republic of Texas were advised by Arthur Ikin, British consul to Texas, of the similarities and differences between methods of handling such trade and those applicable to the United States. Ikin wrote a little book in 1841 for publication in London, entitling it "Texas: Its History, Topography, Agriculture, Commerce, and General Statistics," and adding the explanatory phrase on the title page, "Designed for the Use of the British Merchant, and as a Guide to Emigrants." One copy of this rare little volume is no\y in the Texas collection of the University of Texas library. "The warehousing system is fully established," he stated. "Drawbacks are allowed, though the privilege does not extend to goods imported to adjoining states. "Invoices presented for entry at the different custom-houses are required to be made' in duplicate, with the marks and numbers of the several packages, the contents and value of each, and the original invoice of purchase or consignment. ."The same rules and regulations observed on the importation of goods into the United States are observed in Texas, except that consular certificates are dispensed with. "Rates of insurance seem scarcely fixed. They have been as high as 60s. and more recently, as low as 40s. The agent of Lloyd's at Galveston, is Charles Frankland, Esq. "The principal ports of entry are those of Galveston, Matagorda Bay, and Aransas. "Respecting the ' latitude and longitude of Aransas Bar, the writer doubts if correct observations have yet been obtained. "The pass, or bar of Matagorda Bay is, in Mr. Kennedy's excellent work .placed in north latitude 28 degrees and 18 minutes, west longitude 97 degrees and 14 minutes. A valuable old Spanish chart makes it latitude 28 degrees, 57 minutes and 45 seconds, longitude west of Cadiz 90 degrees and 35 minutes. "Galveston Bar, according to the Notice to Mariners; published by A. A. M. Jackson, Esq., collector of the port, in the month of May last, is in north latitude 29 degrees and 15 minutes, west longitude 94 degrees and 49 minutes. "Two lights have been placed on the east end of Galveston island, elevated forty-five feet above the level of the sea, distance six hundred yards apart, bearing east and west of each other. A buoy has also been placed on the bar about four miles from the lights, and in range with them. "Vessels are warned not to come in at night without a pilot, nor approach nearer than five fathoms, when they should bring the lights to range, and come to. "Able pilots are attached to all these ports. The rate of pilotage at Galveston is 2M- dollars per foot. The anchorage outside the bars is, as the writer has already had occasion to observe, very safe, owing to the nature of the ground, and the gradual shoaling of the water, permitting the m'ariner to feel his way by the lead. The coast east of Matagorda is very low and flat. About the middle of Galveston Island, which is thirty miles long, three live oak trees form a good'' landmark, there being no other timber on the island. "The following is a list of the Texian counties: Jefferson, Jasper, , sabine, San Augustine, Shelby, Harrison, Red River, Fannin, Galves-, ton, Liberty, Houston, Nacogdoches; Harris, Montgomery, Robertson, Brazoria, Fort Bend, Austin, Washington, Milam, Matagorda, Bexar,' Colorado, Fayette, Bastrop, Travis, Jackson, Victoria, Gonzales, Refugio, Goliad, Bowie, Lamar, Spring Creek, Ward, Burnet, San Patricio, Menard, Navisota, Panola, and Paschal. "Throughout the Republic, a mall and post-office system has been established, very efficient in its operation, considering the situation and resources of the country. Letters to England are duly forwarded, if entrusted to the post-office in Galveston.
