PAGE 2 THE BROWNSVILLE HERALD. BROWNSVILLE TEX., SUNDAY, JAN. 16, 1949 New Round Seen In County Feud A new round in the feud between flherlff Boynton Fleming and the county comml«i»ioncm court in in prowpect after the court voted unanimously to approve the *aJarIe* of Fleming'* itaff for January and February only. The commliytloncrH acted Friday on Fleming'* application to the commlaHionera court to appoint a*.ilHtanc«, mibmlttcd Jan. 1. The county fathers gave Deputy Sheriff Etequiel Cavazon a pay ral«c from $1*0 to $226 monthly. Further action on the sheriff* appli* cation "In to be subject to the further order* of thi* court," the ord- ·r *aid. H»p« Sheriff ' County Judge O*car C, Dancy followed the rofuinl to approve the *heriff* payroll pa«t Feb. 28 with a nearlnfly critical letter to Fleming. Dancy told Fleming to ·et a day, or day*, for the public Hearing the flheriff awked of charge* by the court that he has con- i|uctecl hi* office uneconomic-ally «nd failed to cooperate with the eommlflMlonerfl. "If you will coruo In a cooperative mood-- which, by the way, you have not *hown aince you have been In office, you will find that the court and every member will lean over backward* to try to give you cooperation," Dancy wrote to Fleming. Cite* Hidalgo Dancy raised the possibility that Cameron county tax valuations and the tax rate may be rained this year to meet rining coata, and pralaed Hidalgo county Sheriff George Ingram for "doing a good job at apparently about $1,250 per {honth IPHH than you (Fleming) operate on." Dancy «ald Morning's "conduct In trying to bully the commlnslon- tr* court about the *pecial jail cell* I* about the mo*t reprehensible of any conduct of any county official fllnce F have been In office." The court last month grant- ad Fleming'* request that two »n*ane cell* be Installed In the lall after they had been recommended by a federal Jail inspector. " Tell* View* The court refused Fleming'* »tea for the cell* last August on the grounds that the county could rot afford them. Dancy *al1 Friday the county had about $19,000 overdraft when the Hherlff a*ked for the lunacy cells. Dancy repeated charges that Fleming had made "untrue" atatomentn about the suicide of a federal prisoner 1 in a ga* blast In his Jail cell. "Though we (the court) listened to you a week bragging on what a fine sheriff you have been, could you reasonably expect u» to put any confidence in statements that you make?" Dancy asked. "We are largely at your mercy because if we do not furnish you everything you ask for, you can go out and tell the taxpayers that we won't batk you up. And our experience in the last few weeks shows that you are the kind of an official [Who will do exactly that, the judge wrote.

Formosa is being saved as an ultimate refuge It the government finds' Itself unable to stay on the mainland, these sources reported. Canton Rejected Antipathy of the residents plus a well-developed Red guerrilla movement were said to have forced abandonment of plans to move to the great southern center of Cantoa. T. V. Soong, governor of Canton's Kwangtung province, was scheduled to confer In Nanking Sunday with his brother-in-law, the generalissimo. Every Indication pointed to Formosa aa the final retreat of Chiang. It was believed that, with the protection of army, navy and air units already being sent there, he hoped to wait for future world events to provide him with the necessary aupport for a comeback. Public clamor for peace at any price was increasing, however, and even in official circles there was a feeling that Communist conditions were not unreasonable in view of the military situation. The Universal reaction was that the Red terms left no room for bargaining. Broadcast by the Red radio last night, they included punishment of war criminals," destruction of "reactionary elements," and abandonment of the constitution.
