Attornev General Says Suit
Against Road Has Brought
WASHINGTON. May 27. Attorney
General Wickersham, in a statement 1
today, declared that the gov em-j
ment's suit against the Southern Pa
cific company for the recovery of
vcluable oil lands in southern Cali
fornia "has developed sensational and
startling disclosures."' The testimony
of witnesses subpoenaed by tho gov
ernment, he says, "presents a re
markable picture of criminal con
spiracy among high officials of the
Southern Pacific to acquire from the
United States under an agricultural
grant, oil lands .valued at fifteen mil
The statement was Issued after a
conference between the attorney gcry
eral and Willir. N Milla his special
assistant In charge of the case, con
cerning recent developments ot tho
cult. The proceedings were instituied
at the direction ot Wickersham in
December, 1010, to set aside the
patent and have revert to the govern
ment title to 60,000 acres of valuable
oil lands In the Elk Hill country, of
the McKittrlck oil districts In Kern
county, Cal. The land Is part of the
grant of July 27, 1S6C to the Southern
Pacific as an aid to the construction
of the road. The original granting
act, the statement says excluded all
mineral lands, the intention of con
gress being to grant only agricultural
lands and reserve mineral lands
reserve mineral lands to
the United States for all time. The
government lawyers nre confident that
the disclosures "will result In the
restoration to the public domain of a
vast tract of the most valuable oil
land In the state of California."

Chairman of Investigating

I for Loss ot
! CAPT. ROSTRON
WASHINGTON. May 28.
Following the reading of the
report of the investigating
committee and the speech by,
its chairman. Senator W. A.
Smith on the Titanic disaster.
there were several measures
introduced In the senate today
which are designed to safe-
guard life in ocean travel. One
of the most important recom-
mendations was for stricter In- -
sppction of vessels by the
government steamship service
and the meeting of all require-
meutH of American navigation ,
laws l) every vessel clearing
from an American port.
The senate adopted a joint
resolution extending the thanks
of congress to Captain Arthur
II. Rostron, of tbe steamer Car-
pathla. and appropriated $10.-
0110 for a medal Tor the ch.v
tain, and also extended trunks
to the crew of the Carpafhia.
WASHINGTON, Ma 2S. Blamu
for the Titanic disaster is chaxgeabla
directly to the failure ot the. deail
Captain Smith to heed repeated
warnings of icebergs ahead, but re
sponsibility for unnecessary loss ot
life must be shared by Captain Lord,
of the steamship Californlnn, througa
his disregard ot distress slgnn.s.
, This is tho finding of the senate com
mittee which investigated the sink.
' ing of the Titanic, as prepared in .t
) comprehensive speech delivered by
William Alden Smith, of Michigan.
I chairman or the committee.
i Senator Smith declared that respon
sibility also rests upon the British
Board of Trade, "to whose laxity ot
regulation, and hasty inspection, tho
world is largely indebted for the aw
America will leave to England tho
chastisement of those guilty, assert
ed the senator, and he quoted tho
British law to show that Captain Lord
I might be prosecuted tor a misdomoan-
accident, although officers of tho Ti
tanic had been advised of the pres
ence of icebergs by the hteamers Bal

and It was vital that tho entire matter
should be reviewed before an Ameri

continued the senator. "No limit ot
