Deeds to Batsons Prairie Field
Held as Forgeries
Houston Texas Dec 4 Two deeds
transferring 6000 acres of land in
cluding practically all of now oil field
at Batsqn Prairie have been held up
at Liberty as forgeries A man named
Hoskins claiming to represent parties
in Houston has been arrested on the
charge and was this morning after a
preliminary hearing held under a
bond of 3000
The bonds were presented for record
at Liberty yesterday by Hoskins who
insisted upon their return as soon as
possible Before the train pulled out
in the evening he was taken into cus
tody One of the deeds in question
was dated October 211837 and was
for the transfer of the Fritz H Green
survey The other was dated in 1836
and was for the Willis Donahoo sur
vey The consideration was but a few
thousand dollars
Interlined on the deeds are descrip
tions of the land that show jt to lie
near the line between Hardin and
Liberty counties Hardin county was
not organized until 185S The signatures
had apparently been erased and other
names substituted The deeds were
supposed to have come from Indiana
The land in question < was located in
Hardin county though the deeds were
filed in Liberty county
All the circumstances were such as
to arouse the suspicion that a con
spiracy had been hatched to throw a
shadow over the titles held to all the
land in the new oil field The excite
ment occasioned in Liberty was mark
ed The filing of the deeds in Liberty
county might have been for the pur
pose of immediately removing the
original upon which all the evidence
of forgery existed destroying it and
flllnca certified copy in Hardin coun
ty later
Tiie investigation instituted is being
pushed vigorously by those land hold
ers interested in the new field Prom
inent among these is Mr ES Middio
brook representing the Middledrook
estate When placed under arrest
Hopkins declared that he had been
engaged at a salary of 75 a month and
expenses by parties in Houston and
fixed the deeds upon their orders He
was to have returned and reported to
them last night but was prevented by
his arrest
Other deeds of a similar character
are alleged to have been filed at dif
ferent times to portions of other oil
fields and many forgeries are alleged
tohave been perpetrated in identical
ly the same manner
The deeds at present held are said
to bo obvious forgeries From the
best authority obtainable in Houston
it is stated that the interlining and
signatures on the documents were in
practically fresh ink while the orig
inal documents date back prior to a
perid during the Republic of Texas
some ton years prior to its annexa
tion to the United States
