At least n thousand men assem bled in the District Court room at one o'eloek today in mass meet ing to diseuss the recent action of the Commissioner 'h Court in the sale of Scurry County's four Iea pucs of school land. This body of land was recent ly sold to parties here in Snyder for 1,16,000 or about, it is stated $G..rM an acre. It is alleged by citizens that before the papers were signed, nn offer of $7.00 an acre was made, but mernbafs of the court Kay the trade had al ready been made when that of fer was made. The matter is one of great inter est to the people and citizens are here from every section of the county to join in protesting a gainst suffering the county to lose the difference in these valua tions. The house was called to order by JI. K. Rosser, who stated the purpose of the gathering. A. C. Wilnieth was elected chair man and (!. C. Cowling, Secretary of the meeting. On motion of II. I'. Wellborn, the chair appointed a committee on resolutions, consisting of II. I Wellborn, Stone Carden, J. I). Poone, John Y. Mowen and A. L. Sloan. While the Committee were out. Judge Buchanan was called for and told some of the history of this land. He cited where Kent and Hor den counties sold their school land for more and Raid he believes our Commissioners were too hasty in selling and that they should have waited till the land was more mar ketable. Mac TaylV argued that the land had sold at a good price and quoted Judge Heale in support of that opinion. M. K. Rosser thought the court had made a serious mistake, but, he stressed his confidence in the integrity of the court anil believ-l ed it an honest mistake. lie gave J it as his belief that the contract is against the public good and there-; fore subject to be undone. i The sentiment of the audience.! judged from the applause was ov-1 ervh''Imingly favorable to the, speakers opposing the action ol'j the court. J Judge Smith and Commission-: ers Lowe and Stinson stated their, reasons for making the deal and for believing that they were pet-; ting a good price for the land. I The meeting was stjll in pro- . press jit the time the paper goes ' III to press and a fuller report of the proceedings will bo given in Monday's paper. The resolutions committee sub mitted a report which was being discussed. We your committee on resold tions beg leave to submit the fol lowing : That whereas, the Commission ers Court of Scurry County did on June 22, A. I)., 1911, sell the Scurry County School lands for tl 16,000 on a contract that we do not believe a judicious one for the County, and believing that said sum of money was too small an amount for said land, we respect fully recommend that our Com missioners Court make such effort as it is possible for1 them to recov er said land and rescind said con tract and that in case any or nil of said court and judge feel that they canWt conscientiously take such steps then that they resign and have other parties elected who can do o, we further, recom mend that the chair uppoiut' a committee of ten to make such in vestigation as they think proper to see what can done to recov er said land. Signed: II. P. WKLMiORN, J. Y. P.OWKN, A. I j. SLOAN, J. I). IIOONK, E. S. CARDKN. After discussing the report the house adopted that part that the land was sold too cheap and that the court he asked to rescind their action in selling the land, but when it came to that part of the rcporPaskinp the members of the court to seek to recover the land or resign, that part of the report was tabled. J. Y. llowen thinks the land worth nine or ten dollars an acre. Henry Wellborn stated that he stood ready to offer eight dollars an acre. A. C. Wilmeth thinks the court made an error and that he thinks the report of the committee should be modified. He thought the court should set aside the sale on the grounds of Judge Smith's ruling the ISroek mot ion out of or der. As the matter now stands the sentiment is that the land was sold too low and that steps should be taRen to set the sale aside an. I recover the hind. That part of the mass nn-ctinpr to havea ciuniuittee appointed to invest ifratf a way to recover the school land was not voted 011 and the section rclatimr to resiurii.it ion was tnhled.
