In 1901, the discovery of oil at spindletop near beaumont, was The begging of the modern oil industry.

There were many young farmers,very few women, and not many children, that lived here. Many moved from town to town in need of oil strikes. People were relatively concerned about drilling oil than city planning. Most towns in the oil fields were crowded, dirty, and rough places all around. They often didn't live in house, most lived in tents,or wooden shacks. The streets were not semeint instead dirt witch turned to mud after being rained on. Most problems turned into violence that's why most towns were violent to live in.
After rancher, Mabel Day tried to set a policy for the range war , the debate soon became a political issue. Later in 1884, governor John Ireland called an emergency meeting to withhold the issue. Soon, after the heated debate the issue soon became a law for cutting down fence. Along with the fact, that there needed to be a gate in every three miles of fence to allow passage. In addition, it prohibited people from fencing land they did not own or buy.
Cheap transportation yay!
The longhorns were well adapted to fit Texas. They thrived on the native grasses, could button down during the hot and cold climate weathers, could eat desert wildlife, like prickly pear cactus, and survive with little water. Also, they were resilient to disease.
People have hoped the new railroads would help with economic growth,because the states economic has brought transportation down (made slower). The railroads would be a great advantage being that most rivers were to shallow and most times that it rained the dirt roads would turn muddy making it hard to travel upon. Railroads would make it very cheap and easy to travel , unlike most that was very expensive to travel people and goods.
Railroads opened very close to commercial farming areas. Railroads offered a cheap transportation for cotton. Being that cotton was there bigger profit. When railroads opened it became a easier cheaper way to ship cotton national to markets.
