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:

"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
"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
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

abiding citizeu should, to carry Into

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."
Yesterday afternoon the following re
ply was sent to Mr. Paul:
