CLOSE DEAL ON
HUGE ACREAGE
Stillman Tract In Wil
lacy Is Bought By
j W. A. Harding
RAYMOXDVILLE, Sept. 14.—The
Stillman tract of Willacy county,
comprising 20,000 acres lying east of
Lyford, extending from the county
line north approximately eight miles
and four miles in width, has been
purchased by W. A. Harding, Wil
I lacy county developer. The deal,
which involved a consideration of
$800,000, was closed Thursday.
Negotiations for the purchase of
the land have been underway sev
eral months. Announcement was
made by the purchaser that the en
tire acreage would be cleared and
developed, and will be sold in 80
acre tracts, each tract to be sup
plied with artesian water.
The lands were acquired by the
Stillmans prior to the Civil war, anl
this acreage was the last of the
large holdings of the Stillman inter
ests in the Lower Rio Urande \ al
ley. With the exception of the King
lands which occupy the eastern part
of Willacy, the Stillman lands com
prised the largest undeveloped acre
age in the county.
The purchaser of the tract has
been identified with development
projects in the unirrigated area over
15 years, and has practically com
pleted development of 50,000 acres
in the Mestenas tract of Willacy
ar.d Hidalgo counties, the most ex
tensive development ever under
taken in the unirrigated area.
The same policy will be pursued
in connection with the development
of the Stillman acreage, Harding
stated. The tract will be cleared
and subdivided and water for do
mestic use and stock will be sup
plied by artesian wells, each well
unit to comprise 1,200 acres, water
to be piped to each 80-acre tract. It
is estimated that approximately
$500,000 will be expended in clearing
and developing the acreage.
Soil surveys show the soil type to
be very uniform. The entire tract .»
covered with a dense growth of
mesquite and cactus, which the pur
chaser states is an index to its high
fertility.
SON IS BORN
.Capt. and Mrs. Wallace Reed of
the Padre island coast guard station
are parents of a son born Tuesday
evening at 6 o’clock at 611 Jeffer
son street, according to an an
nouncement made Friday.
This is the sixth son to be born
to the Reeds.
Rio Grande 11-2
Feet From Flood;
Drop Forecasted
The Rio Grande river was about a
foot and a half under flood stage
and slowly rising here Friday morn
ing. The weather bureau forecast
was for a practically stationary
mark throughout the day followed
by a moderately fast drop.
Mission reported a crest of 15.1
feet up to 6 p. m. Thursday. The
mark of 10.6 feet at that city Friday
morning was a drop of 4.4 feet from
the previous reading.
The Brownsville gauge stood at
16.3 feet Friday morning, a rise of
3.2 feet over the previous day. Flood
stage here is 18 feet.
Drops were reported from Eagle
| Pass to Mission Friday.

TIMOTHY O’LEARY, Brownsville
police officer, used a few quiet
hours the other night to count the
electric signs in Brownsville.
He ran the figure up to about
eighty, and did not include some
small signs.
Which was a rather surprising
number. The business district of
Brownsville is so scattered that the
really large number of eleotric
signs in the city is not so impres
sive as it would be if the district
were contracted.
Venture to say the number will
be doubled within a year.

HUNTFORSON
Father of Kidnaped
Boy Refused To
Help Police
CHICAGO, Sept. 14.—</P)—An un
conscious boy believed to be Billy
Raniori, 10-year-old Italian child,
who has been in the hands of kid
napers for a week, was picked up
at a busy street intersection on the
west side this afternoon. He was
carried into juvenile home nearly
for examination.
CHICAGO. Sept. 14.—(Ah—A po
lice hunt for a kidnaped boy. con
ducted against the wishes and en
treaties of the boy’s father, was on
today.
“I know you are ray friend' w A.
Frank Ranieri. the father, told the
police, “hut friends often may do
more harm than good.”
But police insisted on pushing
their investigation.
Police asked him for a picture of
the lad. kidnaped a week ago. Ran
ieri would give them none.
“Perhaps, soon, you can take pic
tures of him yourself,” the father
said, smiling for the first time
since demands for $60,000 ransom
were made upon him.
Ranieri’s return to apparent good
humor after days of anxiety during
which he sought to raise from
friends the sum demanded by the
kidnapers, led police to the convic
tion that Raneri had been in com
munication with the men holding his
son and that he may even have
seen the boy.

ing Complaint
Charges of transporting liquor were

Mexican Refugees
Asked to Return,
‘Fight for Rights’
LAREDO, Sept. 14.—i/P)—All Mex
ican refugees in the United States
will be asked to return to their nat
ive country and start a legal fight
for their rights, General Antonio
I. Villarreal, who has been deported
for his activities in the Liberalist
party, said today.
Gen. Villarreal, who was minister
of agriculture under President Alvaro
Obregon in 1921, said he had been
visited by a papal envoy of Rome
who promised him the support of
the Catholic church.
“We will fight deportation on the
grounds that we are Mexican citi
zens and the constitution does not
permit any but foreign citizens to
be forcibly removed from the coun
try.” Gen. Villarreal said.
That former President Adolfo de
la Huerta, now living in Los Angeles,
would be among those requested to
go back to Mexico to try their cases
through civil courts, was asserted by
the general.

Shipping Suffered
Shipping losses were believed
heavy. The freighter Helen pulled
its anchor and drifted on the rocks
at the entrance of the harbor. Two
sailing vessels appeared from the
shore to be sinking.
The city was plunged in darkness
and transportation halted. Com
munication with other parts of the
island was cut off and it was
thought days would be required be
fore it was restored. Weather bu
reau officials believed, however,
that San Juan had probably borne
the brunt of the storm and the
south side of the island had not suf
fered so greatly.
Th© hurricane ripped the roof off
the Palace hotel in the center of
the city. Tart of the roof of the
Union Club was carried away.
The governor’s palace was flooded.
Windows and doors were blown in.
Cocoanut trees and other palms in
the garden were blown down.
Throughout San Juan and its sub
urbs houses were destroyed and
others damaged. Trees broken off
or uprooted by the hurricane crash
ed in the walls of homes and fill
across the streets blocking traffic.
That the hurricane which hit Porto
Rico had not sper.t its force was
indicated in a warning issued by the
United States weather bureau at
9:30 p. ni. yesterday. It read:
“No report tonight east of longi
tude 71. However, hurricane prob
ably central near southwestern point
of Porto Rico moving west north
westward and will likely pass over
or near Santo Domingo Friday
morning.
"Greatest caution advised vessels
near path. This is a dangerous
storm.”
Longitude 71 cuts through the
Dominican republic about 80 miles
west of Santo Domingo.
There are several ships in the
danger zone. The passenger steamer
San Lorenzo of the New York and
Porto Rico line was believed to be
at sea near San Juan.
Franz Romer, a German sailing
toward the United States in a col
lapsible canoe, was believed to be
in the storm area.

Day’s Range of Quo- j

Slight Drop
NEW ORLEANS. La, Sept. 14.—OP) I
—The cotton market opened irreg
ular today despite relatively steady
Liverpool cables. First trades were
unchanged to 8 points down com
pared with yesterday's close.
Demand became more aggressive
after the start, however, probably
prompted by expectations of a bull
ish consumption total to be issued
by the census bureau later in the
day and fears that the tropical
storm mi^ht eventually reach the
cotton belt. October traded to
16.98 and December und January to
17.08, or 15 points above the prev
ious close.
Near the end of the first hour the
market was quit and at or near the
highs.
Trading became more active after
the consumption figures were issued.
The report made the consumption by
domestic mills during August 526,729!
bales and the mill stocks at the end j
of August 782,068 bales. The fig- I
ures were considered bullish by the
trade. October traded up to 17.08
and December 17.18, or 26 to S3
points above the opening lows and 25
points over yesterday’s close.
Toward* mid-session a storm warn-!
mg indicating that the tropical dis-j
turbance was recurving to the north !
fostered the belief that the storm
would miss the cotton belt. Early1
buyers re-sold and prices cased of f |
10 to 13 points from the top.
Cotton futures closed barely steady
