CHICAGO, Jan. ",. —Bail in the sum

advantage of the granting of a writ
of supersedeas by the United Stales

Whether this amount can bo ob

■ fendants to be a matter of grave
dn'Jbt, but they expressed the belief
that at least some of it could be ob
tained—enough to accomplish the lib
erty of President Frank If. Ryan and
a few others, until decision is reached

The decision involves only 32 of the

Judges Baker and Seaman heard the
β-rsrnments and the decision was given
orally by .Judge Baker. He took oc
casion to intimate -that undue haste
■was manifest at Indianapolis in com
mitting the defendants to prison.
The writ was issued largely on the

labor men in Indianapolis were read i
On motion of Delegate James Curran

rising , vote, followed by three cheer?.
Delegate Edward L. Nolan of the Ma

hour national strike as a protest against
the verdict in Indianapolis and that the
people be educated in the matter by the

Delegate Walter Macarthur of the

that such action would be premature j

too powerful a weapon to be used for j
political purposes. He was of the, opin- i

Such a strike as proposed by the reso- i

in Supreme Court
WASHINGTON, Jan. 3.—Criticism of
tlio course of Attorney General Wfck
eraharn in the Southern Pacific oil land
litigation is made by Maxwell Kvarts
and Henry W. Clark, counsel for the
Southern Pacific company in a brief
filed t6dsy in the supreme court of
the 1 .'iiii-d States in defense of the
railroad's claim to millions of dollars'
worth of western oil lands. It Is said
that title to $500,000,000 worth of oil

The case now before the supreme
court involves questions as to whether
Edmund Burke and other private liti
gants have better claims to the land
than the railroad company. The gov
ernment recently filed a suit seeking to
annul patents to the land It Issued to
the Southern Pacific.
CASE HE SAYS
"Jt Is unparalleled in the whole his
tory of judicial procedure," declares
the railroad's attorneys, "for the attor
ney general of the United States to be
permitted to intervene as a 'friend of
the court , in a case between private
litigants and then so to use the privi
lege granted him as to attempt to have
decided issues not now before the court
and which may or may not hereafter
come before It in a government suit
just begun against one of the parties
to the case at bar.
"It certainly is unfair and unjust to
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 upon entirely dif
ferent facts, which has not proceeded
beyond the filing* of a bill of com
plaint. Especially is this true when
the great seriousness and vast Impor
tance of this matter, not only to the
Southern Pacific railroad, but to all
land grant railroads, is considered."

an opinion Attorney General Wleker

secretary of the interior In 1911, In
which he expressed the belief that the
