' * Ancient Documents Which May Affect a Billion Dol- lar* Worth of Property Washington, June 3—Doubt is thrown upon the validity- of title to thousands of oil leases in the state of Texas by ancient documents brought to the attentfon of the Department of Justice today following litigation be- tween Oklahoma and Texas Involving oil deposits in the Red River district., (( Unless the documents now a t the! ' disposal of Attorney General Palmer j are declared by the Supreme Seurt to» be invalid or non-applicable, more; than a billion dollars worth of oil-' iands in Texas may pass out of the control iff their present holders and become the property of the first \lease federal oil land leasing act of. Febwi- ary 25, 1920. '' All these documents- are either on file with the Department of Justice or are In the archives of the Department of State. Under the old • Spanish law,, which prevailed., in the Republic of Texas, minerals were a separata estate: froin the land they chanced £o. .be.,.located on, and .belonged to the national gov- ernment,' A special minerar\\ppSSft* or concession was necessary before apln dividual could.gain title M'those'min- eral rights, regardless;*? Whether that individual owned the surface land up- on which the minerals were located. The Republic of 'T?exas having al- most unanimously voted In favor of annexation to the United States, the first .Congress of the new republic by resolution gave plenary powers to Isaac Van ,Zandt and J. Plnckney Hendierson to negotiate a treaty of annexation. John C\ Calhoun, secre- tary of state of the United States, was given full power to act by Presi- dent John Tyler.

General Calles suggested that Villa and about 200 of his followers retire to tho state of Sonora and remain qiiiet until after the presidential elec- tion when tlie new* government would make known Its decision. Villa refused to go to the stato of Sonora and made the counter demand that he be put in Bupreme command of the rebel forces In the state of Chi- huahua- General Calles rejected this proposal- Three troop trains, bearing mom than 2,500 soldiers, have left for Chi?* huahua during the past 86 hours t« join the hunt for Villa, There is &U ready a number of federal troops in the central part of that state seeking Villa and they are believed to be-hot on the trail, but the wild and moun-. talnous nature ot the country and Vil- la's knowledge, of the Intricate moun- tain . by-ways makes the hunt a diffi- cult! one. General Calles said that th« plan of the campaign is to form « \steel ring\ about tho central part of the\ state, where Villa is now in hid- ing and then close it In gradually. . In order to stimulate the campaign and bring It to\ a quick close all tho federal soldiers have been notified effort was rraade to negotiate with Vil- la and seoure the surrender of himself and his mon, but it has failed.
