Suit Against S. P. for Oil
Property Worth $750,
--000,000 Will Be Insti
Suit to recover from the Southern
Pacific railroad and subsidiary cor-
potations approximately 125,000 acres
of rich oil lands in California, valued
at the stupendous sum of $750,000,000,
will be Instituted by the government
within the next 10 days, either in San
Francisco or Los Angelee.
B. D. Townsend, special assistant to
Attorney General "Wickersham, who has
been working: on the so-called mineral
land cases against the railroad com
pany, arrived in San Francisco yester
day from Portland with the definite
announcement that he was practically
ready to act. The Oregon suit, involv
ing 2,300.000 avres of land, which he
has been engaged in prosecuting for
several months, is almost ended, and
from now on Towneend and hie assist
anta will devote all their time and at
tention to the bitter fight to restore to*
the public domain the mineral lands in
this state now alleged to be held ille
gally by the railroad.
Clause Specifies Exclusion
Townsend described the action of the
government as a "suit in equity to
identify the mineral lands which were
excepted from the congressional grant
and also from the patents issued to the
At the time the land grant was
made by the government to the South
ern Pacific as a subsidy for railroad
construction a clause in both the grant
and the patents declared that mineral
lands were excluded from the opera
tions of the act. In other words, the
original grant and patents provided
that mineral lands included in the ter
ritory deeded to the railroad should re
vert to the government automatically.
Values Leap Skyward
Affer holding the lands for many
years, during which time considerable
tracts were sold, oil was discovered
and values leaped skyward. But the
finding of oil resulted in the classifi-
cation of the lands as •'mineral bear
ing," and it is the governments con
tention that the Southern Pacific holds
its title illegally.
During the last year a careful sur
vey has been made by government
geologists, with the result that approx
imately 125,000 acres of land in Cali
fornia, part of the original grant to
the Southern Pacific, have been classi
fied as "mineral bearing," and coming
within the exception noted in the grant.
Most of this land is worth $6,000 an
acre or more, and some of it is being
actively developed by the Kern Trading
and Oil company, a subsidiary corpora
tion of the Southern Pacific.
