BILL TO CREATE AN AVENUE Use of Old Right of Way of Balti more and Ohio Road. PENDING BILL DISCUSSED Quotations From Two Opinions Is sued Becently From the De partment of Justice. Tr> th* Editor of The Star: In view of the fact that The Star is regarded by its thousands of readers as a paper which can be absolutely relied upon for accuracy, and feeling assured that you would not knowingly allow to be published therein any statement which is erroneous or misleading. I desire to call your attention to a statement in your is sue of the 10th instant, the subject being the recent report of the District Commis sioners on Senate bill .'184, providing that a portion of the land which was formerly the right of way of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad be reserved for use as an avenue, and improved. Relative to the supplemental, modified opinion of the acting Attorney General, which I understand was rendered in com pliance with the earnest solicitation of the Engineer Commissioner, you state: "Later this was toned down by a letter from the acting Attorney General, which said that in view of the fact that the District of Columbia paid for half the deed, there is ground for the Commis sioners' views that the District can use that strip of land for a property yard or anything else necessary." Omission of Words Alleged. It is a notorious fact that legal opinions or legal documents can he materially al tered by the omission of a single punctua tion point. In your quotation from the opinion of the acting Attorney General several very important words were omit ted, thereby changing the Intent and meaning of the opinion to such an extent an to mislead all readers; and as the above statement has been read by thou sands who will never see the correct copy of the opinion in question?including many members of Congress, whom the citizens are depending upon to subserve their rights in this matter, so important to them?much damage mipht result to our citizens by the statement. I therefore respectfully request that proper corrections be made, and susgest that as the public has not had an oppor tunity to see correct copies of th?j two opinions, our citizens would appreciate it If you would publish in full, bffth of the opinions of the acting Attorney. Gen eral Yours very truly. EVAN H. TUCKER, President Northeast Washington Citizens' Association. Acting Attorney General's Views. The first opinion rendered by William R. Harr. acting attorney general, Jan uary 26, and supplemental opinion of February 18, addressed to Senator Gal linger, follow: "Department of Justice, "Washington, January 26, 1911. "Sir: I *have received your letter of January 21, 1911, referring to me a copy of S. J. Res. 82, directing that a portion of square No. 857 in the city of Wash ington, D. c., be reserved for use as an avenue and improved, accompanying which was a copy of S. Doc. No. 220 (Fifty-seventh Congress, second session), relating to federal and local legislation, etc., in the District of Columbia, which (Includes the act of February 12, 1901, providing for eliminating certain grade crossings of railroads in the District of Columbia and for other purposes. "Section 8 of the act of Congress ap proved February 12. 1901 (31 Stat.. 778>, provides, among other things, for the abandonment by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company of certain property in square No. 857 in the District of Columbia, and requires that the same be conveyed to the I'nited States with o'her prqperty in consideration of }1,500,000. "Under the act of March 3, 1835 <4 Stat., 757), the Baltimore and Ohio Rail road Company was authorized to con struct its road through square 857, and under bection 5 of said act it was em powered to obtain land needed in that square either by gift or by purchase: and it can be safely assumed that said railroad acquired a good title to the property used in said square, and that after using the same for more than sixty years a valid title was conveyed to the United States in the deed of said company to the government executed in 1909. "The Washington Branch Railroad Company, referred to in section 8 of the act of Congress approved February 12, 1901, runs inrough square 857 from 6th to 7th streets northeast, waa part of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad system, and occupiel a strip of land about seventy feet wide and 900 feet long. "The title to said strip of land, being vested In the United States. Is entirely at tha disposal of Congress, and It would appear that the Commissioners of the District of Columbia have no authority over the same at the present time other than policing it. Respectfully, "WILLIAM R. HARR. "Acting Attorney General." Modified Opinion. Following Is the modified opinion which was transmitted to the Senate District committee by Maj- Judson, Engineer Com missioner of the District: "Februry 18, 1911. "Sir: Referring to your communication of January 21,191(1, In reference to Senate joint resolution No. 82, in respect to land in square No. 857. In the city of Washing ton, D. C., and to department's reply of January 28,1911, wherein it was stated that the title to the strip of land deeded to the United States by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company, under the act of Feb ruary 12, 1901 (31 Stat., 778), is vested in the United States and under the control of Congress, and that it would appear that the Commissioners of the District of Columbia have no authority over the same at the present time other than policing it. I wish to advise you that, as some con troversy has arisen about the matter, the letter of January 23, 1011, had reference primarily to the legal title to the land in question, and was not intended as an ex pression of any formal opinion by this de Sartment upon the question of the juris tetlon of the Commissioners over the premises, as the language used, I think, Indicates. "I may add that, in view of the fact that one-half of the consideration named in the deed to the government was paid by the District of Columbia, and that the railroad company was required by the act of February 12, 1901, to deliver to the Com missioners of the District of Columbia the deed to the United States for the property, I think there is colorable ground, at least, for the view taken by the Com missioners and acted upon by them, that it was intended by Congress that they should have the custody of the property until Congress by legislation should oth erwise dispose of the same. "A copy of this letter has been sent to the Commissioners for the District of Co lumbia. "Very respectfully. "(For the Attorney General:) "WILLIAM R. HARR, "Assistant Attorney General."
