HIS Hanan Shoes $4-95 Broken Lots of HANAN SHOES 0 Kid, Calf and Pat ent Leather, worth $5.50, $6 and $6.50 all go at $4.95 Says He Bought It From Warder and Advances the Old Chamizal Argument For His Claim. Perhaps the city may not be able to start Its sewage disposal plant as soon as desired because George Paul claims to own the property which the city recently acquired from the Cotton estate by purchase. Yesterday Paul addressed a letter to the mayor and city council in which he stated that he had -been in possession of the property and claimed that he had bought it seven years ago. .He con tends that this is tn the Chamizal grant and Ms disputed territory, it having ..never been definitely decided whether the property belongs to the United States or Mexico. He makes the startling statement that a police officer, guarding several wagonloads of dirt: which -were dumped into the place. forpioiy Cook possession of the land and told him that he had been instructed to arrest him if he, of fered anjr resistance. The mayor, in his reply to PauL's let ter, stated that he would have to take the' matter up with the city council at the meeting Thursday. 3Jr Paul writes: SPECIAL SALE ON OUR 25 Cents a Pound Italian Cream 15 Cents a Pound WEDNESDAY ONLY "For some years I have claimed to be the owner of a certain parcel of land, situated within what Is called the cor porate limits of t,i Paso, and, during more than seven years, I have been and am still, except for the forcible trespass of the emploj-es of the city, committed at an early hour on the 31st day of re cember, 1909, in the actual, exclusive and peaceable possession of the prop erty, by a good and sufficient enclo sure. The tract of land to which I re fer is that of about three acres, with a deed from Vf. B. Grant and "Wm. C. Cotton, executors of the estate of F. B. Cotton, deceased, dated June 9, 1909, and filed for record in the office of the county clerk of El Paso county." 'Territory Is Foreign." "The tract of land in controversy is 'within the boundaries of what is known as neutral territory between the United States and Mexico, and is involved, as you are likewise aware, in what is .known, internationally as the Chamizal case.' "About the hour of 10 oclock, the morning of December 31, I discovered several wagons and teams entering the enclosure around the land in question and depositing wagons of earth. I also noticed a uniformed policeman present, on guard at my gate; my father on asking the police officer for an expla nation of the trespass, was Informed by the policeman that he was there to ar rest and rake to the city police station any person who attempted to interfere with the wagons and teams entering the enclosure and depositing the'r loads of earth." Mr. Paul protests that the city is trespassing up his property and tramp- 1 ling upon his rights as an American citizen and denies the right of the city to forcibly take possession of his prop erty and points out that there is a le gal way through the courts for the city to secure possession of the prop erty if it does not belong to Paul. "I am informed." continues Paul, "that ! you have invested some $13,000 of the public funds of the city of El Paso, In the purchase of a claim of title, to this and another tract of land, situated upon neutral territory, and which claim of title is adverse to that which I hold and am in possession of. "I am loath to believe that I may be compeled to forcibly resist such unlaw ful and unwarranted and Inexcusable disregard of my rights as a man and a citizen. "Tf Vv fliiA rmyrct r Iqtt -nii ffin ( j prive me, or recover from me, this pi upenj , x snail not complain, oul wm render you ail the assistance that a law abiding citizeu should, to carry Into effect the law's decree." In the last paragraph of his letter Mr. Paul says that unless the city withdraws its policeman and adopts the regular legal course to dispossess j mm, ne vui De compeied to lane per i sonal action to prottect his rights. The mayor ,did not appear to oe alarmed over tile warlike communlca tion; but said the city bought the land from the Cotton estate and had placed an officer in charge of it. "I understand." said tue mayor, 'that Mr. Warder, -who claims the land, is not United States territory, deeded the property to Mr. Paul, and if he paid Mr. Warder anything for It, I am sorry. However, that is a matter for Warder to fix up with the Cotton estate." Mayor's Reply. Yesterday afternoon the following re ply was sent to Mr. Paul: "Mr. Geo. H. Paul, City: "Dear -Sir Tour letter of January 3, 1910, addressed to the mayor and the city council or the city of El Paso was received by me this morhlnc- Th ,.,. council will not be In session until Thursday. January C, 1910, and your communication cannot be referred to it until that date. But, I deem it proper to write you this letter mainly to ac knowledge Its receipt and to advise you that it will be brought to the atten tion of the council at the earliest possi ble date. "According to your own statements contained in your above mentioned communcation, the only wrong, if any, which you have suffered, arises from j the alleged fact that the premises you uiciiuuii ait; suuuieu in a. loreign coun try. If said premises are so situated, you should apply to the authorities of that country for whatever redress to which you may be entitled. If the j lands In question are not in a foreign countrj't you have suffered no wrong. This is the light in which the matter appears to me in view of your own statements. But. I desire to have all possible Information upon the subject. I therefore request you to put yourself in communication with the city attor- I ney as boon as possible and explain to mm your interpretation of the facts and your rights therein mentioned, that that official may thoroughly Investigate the subject and report the facts to the city council for the proper action of that body. "I assure you in advance of any ex pression by the city council, that the city of El Paso does not desire to wrong any one, resident or nonresident, and will endeavor to expedite the mat ter so that an early judicial determina tion may be arrived at.
