Although Federal military forces were
withdrawn from the store area Friday fol
lowing the storm, a provisional motor
transport compan\ was left at the disposal
of Mayor Gordon "lioone of Corpus Christ i
to aid in removing debris from the street>
ot the city.
"Too much praise cannot be given Lieut.

to l.itMii 1; B. Wakefield, officer in

as it stands we have opened all streets.
; and. within two or thrc weeks, the n si

As spokesman for the people of Corpus

pressed appreciation for Federal aid sent
following an appeal to Southern Depart-

While here Mr. Miller expressed hopes
of netting permanent aid from all over lite

thorities was asked by Mr. Miller, accord

NO ANNOUNCEMENT OF
FINDINGS IN FOOD PROSE
MADE BY GRAND JURY
Investigatons which have been going on
for some time resulted in the arrest of a
local physician Friday in connection with
trafficking in drugs. Revenue Agent T. J.
Taylor said that a great deal on the sub-
ject has been published from time to time
and doctors and druggists have been thor-
oughly warned throughout the State as to
the dangers of illicit traffic n habit form-
■ It seeius that from time to time certain
characters find it impossible to withstand
the temptation of making easy money by
capitalizing the habit of th>» drug fiends,
said Mr. Taylor. "Attention had been
i called for some time to the character ot
callers at the office of this physician who
. was arrested yester.iav. After watching
for some time a raid whs made, whieh dis-
closed the details of a very considerable
illicit traffic along this lia •.
1 am at a loss to understand how a man
who has a standing in the community ami
a fairly lucrative practice will take the
j chance of facing sentence in the Federal
, Court, of imprisonment of from one to five
years, and a fine of $100 to $10,000. or both,
together with the loss of his license to
' practice in this state and rights of citizen-
ship in the t'nited States, for the present
profit of a few dollars wrung from these
j drug addicts.
The courts throughout tne T'nited
States, I notice, are considering these of-
tenses more and more serious. We hope
to have a considerable increase in the force
of agents in the near future, and that In
: due time we shall be able to rid Texas of

1 Who is profiteering in San Antonio and
| Bexar County? This is a question fre-
I queutly asked, but nothing as yet has
I been given out offlciaiy or otherwise.
There was to have been an investi»u-
s tlon by a special grand jury for the e\
j press purpose of finding out and pio;.;>
(Uting those who are supposed to be taking
! advantage of the innocent customer. This
I pertained especially to food, although it
1 was generally understood that all commo-
1 uities which were being sold at an exorb.
j tant price would come tinder the head of
; the probe. Thus far there have been no
I indictments, and there has been no out-
ward indication that an investigation wa.
being carried on. It is possible that there
will be some announcements ton orrow,
when the grand jury convenes, but up to
the present time profiteers are still prof
j iteerlng, according to reports

Crossings at this point are not passable,
Mr. Noonan writes, owing to deep waf"V
and washouts in the bed of the creek. His |
directions to travelers coming on that1
road are that alter arriving at the three .
forks ol' the road on this side at the top
of Hie hill west of Castrovlllc, to take the
right-hand, or Quihl, road, which crosses ,
the Hondo Creek over cement slabs. From!
that, point Into Hondo the roads are good.
At the present time labor and teams for
road work are not available at any price,
he states. It is estimated that it will
require oil days to make the necessary re-
pairs on Hie bridge alone, and it. will be
equally long before all tbe roads in Me-
dina County are In good shape again.
A petition for an !fSOO,flOO bond issue for
good roads Is now being circulated In Me-
dina Count}', and au election will be called
in Hie near future. The movement Is be-
ing endorsed throughout the county by all
the leading citizens, and it is probable that
the Issue will be voted by a big majority.
Freedrlcksbiirg cannot be reached at pres-
ent by a direct route. The only data fur-
nished by the department is that at a point
six miles from Fredericksburg, where the
road forks, the traveler should take Phe
right fork ami go via Cain City. Itoads on
this detour are in passable condition.

The trip lo Dallas can be made without
mishap by following the main road through
Mistin, Taylor, Waco and thence to Dallas.
The only bad strip encountered on the

highway should he disregarded, as this Is

For the benefit of local motorists who
expect to attend the State Fair In Itallns
