Listen to the facts—not state- ments, but simple recorded facts undisputed. Jim Ferguson and, partner, a Mr. Mansfield, sold the Dayton Lumber Co. 1778 acres of land, and the money was deposited in the Temple State Bank in escrow, payment to be made when title to the land was established, a solemn contract being signed to the effect that the money was being held for that purpose. The court at. Beau- mont, every member a Ferguson appointee, decided that Fergu- son and his partner had title to 1269 acres only. When demand was made for the money, it de- veloped that Ferguson had drawn every cent of it out of the Temple State Bank twelve months previously, thus depriv- ing the owners of the 509 acres money legally and morally theirs, and two of the owners are widow women. The money for the 1269 acres belongs half each to Fer-. guson and Mr. Mansfield,...
