PHOENIX. July 3. P. J. Miller has

that there could be no election till

Litigation Affecting Title toi
Stirs Attorneys Who File
HISTORY OF NATION"
WASHINGTON', Jan. 3. Criticism
of tho course of Attorney General
Wickersham in the Southern Pacific
oi' land litigation was made by Max
well Kvarts and Henry W. Clark,
counsel for the .Southern Pacilic rail
road company, in a brief filed today
with tho supreme court of the Ignited
Str.tes In defense of their claim ot
millions of acres of wusttrn oil tends.
It Is said that the title to J.VtO.OOO.OOu
north of oil lands depends on tho
outcome of the litigation.
The case now before the supremo
court involves the question as to
whether Edmund Burke and other
private litigants have better claims to
the land than the railroad company.
The government recently filed a suit
seeking to annul tne patents to the
land issued to the Southern Pacific.
"It is unparallclled In the wholo
history of judicial nrocedure." de-s
flares the railroads attorneys, for th -
attorney general of the United States
j to be permitted to intervene as a
menu 01 me court, in a case be
tween private litigants nnd then so
iue the privilege granted him as to
attempt to have it decide issues not
now before the court, which may or
may not hereafter come before it. In
the government suit just begun
against one of the parties in the casa
at the bar.
"It Is certainly unjust and unair
tp the railroad to be compelled In
this court of last resort not only to
defend the present case", but also to
defend another case, arising from
different facts, which 1ms no; pro

complaint. Especially is thIs"gowheu
