a Few Days
WASHINGTON*, Jan. 17.—A suit
which will test the title of hundreds
of thousands of acres of oil lands in
the west, with values running into the
millions, will be filed at Los Angeles
by the federal government within a
Assistant Attorney General Knaebel
today instructed United States Attor
ney McCormick at Los Ang-eles to be
gin proceeding's against all the claim
ants to 160 acres of oil lands in south
ern California, said to be worth $5,000
an acre. Other suits will follow, all

president's power to xrtiake the with
drawal, congress gave him specific
authority by the act of June , 25, 1910,
aftd President Taft again withdrew the
lands July 2, 1910. Between the first

niany claims were filed on the lands
under the mineral law.
The government holds that the fisst
withdrawal, as well as the second, wag
legal and that the title to these valu
able tracts is lodged in the United

the court to declare valid its title to
the land, but it also will seek recover

commissioner for California, Secretary
Wilson of the agricultural department
declared a quarantine upon the follow
ing fruits coming from Mexico:

BUILDER OF RAILROADS
DIES AT ADVANCED AGE
J. Parker Whitney, Promi
nent in California Many
Years, Left Fine Record
J. Parker Whitney, pioneer, writer,
miner, sportsman and builder of rail
roads, died early yesterday afternoon
at the Hotel Del Monte, -where he had
.been spending: the winter with his
wife. Death followed an illness of
several months. All the family were
at his bedside when the end came.
Mr. Whitney was 78 years old, hav
ing: been born June 27, 1834, in Gard
ner, <Mass\. where his family was prom
inent in both mercantile and railroad
enterprises. At the ajgre of 17 years he
was lured to California by the tales of
fabulous fortunes to be won from the
western El Dorado. His first trip was
made In a sailing vessel around Cape
Between 1852 and 1865 he made sev
eral trips acro«i the plains by stage
coach. In 18C5 he settled in Colorado
and soon afterward wrote an Interest
ing history of the mining resources
of that state.
In 1867 he was appointed* the official
government commissioner from the
United States to the Paris internation
al exposition and while there displayed
an Interesting exhibit which showed
the mineral resources of the hitherto
unknown products of Colorado. In rec
ognition of this exhibit Mr. Whitney
was awarded the first gold medal of
the exposition, as well as many other
Mr. Whitney built the Silver City
railroad, which connects Silver City
with the Santa Fe at Deming, and was
interested in many other enterprises
In New Mexico. However, it was with
California* development that he was
identified ehie'fly. For more than 50
years he was engaged in the sheep
raising business in Placer county,
where he retained extensive real estate
holdings until his death.
.He was one of the pioneers in the
orange growing industry of northern
California. The first car of raisins
ever shipped from this state came from
Mr. Whitney's Placer county lands.
The reclamation of overflowed water
lands was another enterprise to which,
his talents were devoted, his most
noteworthy reclamation being that of
Roberts island In the San Joaquin
Prior to the San Francisco fire in
1906, Mr. Whitney was the owner of
the old Starr King building in Geary
street* This was destroyed, but the
ashes had barely cooled when he
started rebuilding on the came site,
and the Whitney building, 133 Geary
street, stands as a monument to hie
faith in San Francisco's future.
Surviving Mr. Whitney are his wife
and three children. Vincent, Parker
and Mrs. J. C. Wheeler Jr.

The stormy post-divorce troubles of
Clarisse Henry and George J. Henry
Jr. which several times have agitated
the calm of Judge Graham's courtroom

Simplicity Observed in All
Decorations; Brilliant Col
oring Barred in Foliage
DANCE PRECEDED BY
Mr. and Mrs. James Flood
Entertain Forty Guests in
Despite the excluslveness of its mem
bership and the weeks of earnest pre
paration on the part of society's maids
and matrons to go fittingly attired,
the Cinderella ball, which was held last
evening in the Fairmont, was marked
by extreme simplicity.
No flowers were employed in the
decoration of the white ajid gold ball
room, and, while the greens and fern
ery were stately and beautiful, the
effect was a trifle severe. Potted trees
were stationed at intervals along the
walls and in the four corners of the
hall was arranged an attractive group
ing of woodwardla ferns and foflage.
Vases of woodwardlas were placed on
the window ledges, but neither in'the
floral decoration nor the illumination
was any color introduced.
The guests were received by the
patronesses of the ball Mrs. John J.
Brice, Mrs. Edward Eyre, Mrs. George
Boyd, Mrs. John Boyd, Mrs. Gordon

TALK IN LEAGUE
Attorney Schrieber Threat
ens to Punch Any One
Calling Him Crook in
Those behind the movement for the
fecall of Police Judge Charles Weller
conducted an investigation along: the
Hne of "Petition, petition, who has the
petition?" and yesterday endeavored
to re-establish an entente cordiale be
tween Attorney Twain Michelson, the
aggressive young invesigator, and
Charles T. Schrieber. who, until last
night, wa« associated with the league
In Its crusade.
Whether Schrieber Iβ to branch out
In a League of Justice all his very own
or Is to cast his lot with the newer
League of Justice will be determined
this morning, when a meeting of the
executive board of the more recent or
ganization will be held in the Phelan
building to threeh the matter out.
As the matter stood last night two
organizations for the recall of Judge
Weller existed. One, headed by Mrs.
A. W. Best as chairman and Miss Isa
bel Munson as secretary, and Incor
porating , the members of the Woman's
Oceanside club; the other headed by
Charles Bchrleber, composed in the
main of individuals.
Matters came to a crux yesterday,
when the petition was not produced.
Schrieber attempted to explain the de
lay by saying that Attorney Frank
Sawyer, in whose hands it was placed,
required time In which to select a
model, and that In announcing post
ponements he had been governed by his
Bchrieber'e explanation was made be
fore several Impatient members of the
league In the Phelan building. It was
received with a great deal of skepti
"There is something very strange
about this matter." said Attorney
Michelson. "This petition has been de
layed time and time again and I don't
believe, Mr. Schrieber. that you are
acting in good -faith. I think that you
are trj'lng to retard the work of this
league. The story you have told us
does not fit in with what we have
found out. The petition should have
been out several days ago. It was
promised definitely for today and it
still is missing. You say that Sawyer
needed more time to draw it up and
wanted a model and that it was placed
in his hands only recently. Mr. Saw
yer tells an entirely different story
and says that he is being 'Jobbed* by
some one." •
Schrieber denied all ill intent and
assured Michelson that he had the
best interests of the league at heart.
Explanations from either side only
added fuel to the discussion which be
"See here," Schrieber, "you
confine yourself to the matter in hand
and don't call me a crook."
"I'm not calling you a crook," re
torted Michelson, "but I will as soon
as I know that you are one."
"The very second you do," advised
Schrieber, "it will become a personal
matter between you and me."
At this point the women present sug
gested a halt in hostilities until the
matter had been gone into more thor
At a formal meeting a short time
later the recall movement, to all ap
pearances, was , Jifted bodily from the
shoulders of SchVieber, who claims to be
the originator of the original Woman's
League of Justice, with offices at 251
Kearney street, to the League of Jus
tice over by women with of
fices \n the Phelan building , .
As an evidence of goad faith Schrie
ber displayed I>he signatures secured at
the Oceanside meetings and at his of
fice and declared that he was heart and
■oul in sympathy with the purposes of
"Does that mean that you will give
tip the offices in Kearny street and join
forces with us?" queried one of the
"No, it does not." was the blunt re
Later he made the concession that he
would make no final decision in the
matter uatil he had met in conference
with the executive board this morning.
"I'm no crook," explained Schrleber
later, "and any man, I don't care who
he is who calls me one, is going to
be punched in the nose. I started the
original League of Justice in San Fran
cisco and these people are trying to
take it out of my hands. I don't ques
tion Michelson in the least, but he cer
tainly is under a misapprehension about
me and my motives. I've been on the
square with every one concerned. And
they don't make a scapegoat out of

COVERS UP TRAIL
Not One Richmond
Pastor Found by Party
Rev. Frank Horn, otherwise known
as Dc Tovrea, the vanishing parson, is
not among: those present in Richmond
so far as could be learned after a.
search that lasted all of yesterday and
late into last night. The members of
his church, the First Baptist, are In
terested in finding , out his whereabouts
and a committee ransacked his study in
the church, uncovering added evidence
that lie had probably departed or at
least was in dpep seclusion.
This committee was headed by J. F.
Ptout, a deacon, Mrs. Paul Dunlap, Mrs.
P. Church, Mr?. J. F. Miller and other
members. It was found that an over
coat, a watch and a number of other
personal articles owned by <he minis
ter had disappeared.
Many of the preacher's things were
still in the study in the church, among
them some clothing, of which Mrs.
Church, his landlady, took possession.
Another development of the day In the
matter was the engagement of Rev.
Dr. H. M. Parker of Berkeley to preach
the sermon at Horn's church tomor
row. Neither Stout nor any other
member of the church will admit that
formal action to removfe the man from
the pulpit has been taken, but It is
believed that the placing of another
pastor In the pulpit Iβ tantamount to
Rev. Van Dyke Todd. pastor of the
other Richmond Baptist church, as
serted a violent dislike to the man.
"lie has no right in the pulpit," said
Rev. Mr. Todd. "I read some published
accounts of his sermons and was sur
prised to flm *hat he had copied them
word for wor. from the Christian Her
ald. He has no right to preach in a
Christian pulpit- ,.
That Horn waa in trouble in Paso
Robles some time ago was the state
ment of Rev. Mr. Todd, who was so
informed hy Rev. Mr. Webster, now
head of a Baptist church in San Diego.
Rev. Mr. Webster substituted in Rich
mond for Horn while he made a trip
east and later -went to Paso Robles,
where Horn had formerly preached.
Upon his return to Richmond he told
Rev. Mr. Todd that Horn had been in
volved in some difficulty with a mar
ried woman and that charges had been
filed against him. These were later
