Jose Valles, said to be a former
Villa general, was released from cus
tody Tuesday, afternoon on a habeas
corpus proceedings sued out by Lessing
& Bowen, his attorneys, before judge
P. R Price in the 41st district court
Valles was first arrested by the po
lice and then turned over to the
rangers. The habeas corpus proceed
ings were instituted on April 20, but
a postponment was asked by the state
and agreed to by bis attorneys t
that time he was placed in the custodv
of the sheriff.
Valles was held on a vagrancy charge
the officers having reason to believe
that he had been in communication
with Villa and might have valuable information.
