THE DAILY ARDMOREITf.. 3EVRN NEW MEXiCO LAND FRAUDS HITCHCOCK WOULD IMPLICATE DELEGATE ANDERSON Secretary Asks That Title to BCOO Acres of Timbered Lands be ft Aside Law Has Ben Violat ed In the Sale of Land. WjishtiiRton, May 17. Land frauds In New Mexico In which William H. Andrew, dolesate from that ter W. S. Hopewell an attorney who np dUclvsod by an official communica tion sent to con k roes by Secretary Hitchcock. Mr. Hitchcock asks that a deal by which the l'ensylvanla Do volopraoat company obtained S.O00 acres of timber land b set atldi nnd that the condition of the or! cirml irrant of a vast extent of school lands to that territory bt en forced. Tho Secretary says that In l&Ol Andrew made application to the public land board of New Mexico for an option on 10.000 noros of tim ber land In Valencia county at $3 nn acre. In passing upon this njt plication the board pointed out to V. S. Hopcwol, an attorney who ap peared as the represontaJvo of An drews, that under the law It was not authorized to sell more than ICO acres to any one person, firm or cor poration. The members of the board, how ever, called attention to the fnct thnt In the .event of a syndicate desiring the land each of the stockholders could be allotted 100 acre, all cf which could later be transferred to the company. Acting on this ur gestlon at the next meeting of the board Hopowoll submitted live ap plications and at the following meet ing forty-four applications. This continued until tho company had ob tained S.OOO acres. The land was Itald for partly In cash and the bal ance whs represented by a note for JS0.000 signed by Arthur Kennedy, president of the Pennsylvania Devel opment company: Frank J. Torrouco, T. I.e Clarke and V. H. Andrews. In the next two years two payments of J6000 each were made on the uote. leaving n balance oi $10,000 unpaid. Secretary Hitchcock says that the law has been violated not only In the sale of the land to tho company but also In the transferring of deeds before the purchase prlco was made He says that the mattor can be rem cdled only by congress, as the trl glnal grant of tho land to New Mox loo was the result of legislative en nctmont. Andrews said today: "I do not linow very muoh about the deal; Hopewell had charge of Hand I ild little nttentlon to It. Tho ptatoment of Secretary Hitchcock shows that tho board of public lands passed up on the transaction and approved It, That ought to sottle the matter, 1 should say."
