PASADENANS MAY FORM
NEW TOURNAMENT CLUB
Organization Planned for Pur
pose of Conducting Perform
ances in Festival Season
PASADENA, Nov. 19.—That Pasa
dena is tv tutva an-organizatlon furmrd
along the lines of the Gridiron club of
Washington, D. C the Funny Forty
Fellows of Now Orleans, the Ak-Sar-
Hen of Omaha and similar societies
seems probable. The matter lias Inn
dlacuaatd among the younf? men of the
city mid it was taken up informally
by tho board of trade directors at a
meeting lust evening.
The organization of nuch a society Is
suggested us a way out of tho seeming
dilemma of Pasadtna's civic societies
regarding an appropriate night carnival
on Tournament of Roses day. The
sentiment of directors of the Tourna
ment association, the Merchants' as
sociation and the board of trade seems
to be that they are loath to father
plans for any hilarity In connection
with the tournament. They are willing
that some other organization- should
stand sponsor for a night performance
■eparat« from the tournament proper,
and it is for that purpose tho new
organisation li Intended. Promoters of
the society stnte that a meeting will be
called soon to stirt the ball rolling
and that it is planned to make it a
permanent organization to give ban
quets and .stage theater performances
throughout tho year.
The board of trade directors last
evening appointed President Geohegan,
L. H. Turner and R. D. Davis as a
committee to confer with the Mer
chants' association committee previous
ly appointed and the tournament di
rectors regarding the nleht festival.
The merchants' committee is made up
of 11. U. Jones, J. A. Phelps and J. It.
Jacobs.

DRIVERS TRY OUT
COURSE OF RACE
Santa Monica Roads Reserved
for Autoists During the
Early Morning
The first of official tryouts over the
course of tho Santa Monica road race,
which will be run next Thursday, was
held yesterday morning between 6 and
8 o'clock. Many of the racing cars
have made the circuit, but these trials
in the past have always been at the
risk of arrest for speeding. Every
morning until the day of the race the
roads will be closed to all except rac
ing cara and the different turns will be
guarded to protect the early morning
vehicles from the madly dashing rac
ing machines.
A majority of the racing drivers had
their cars out. The course is in per
f< ct Bhape ami tho final work on the
Nevada avenue turn is done. This |
turn has been banked to a height of
twenty feet. L,ast year several of the
drivers could not make the turn and
went straight ahead. Tf this in done
this year It means disaster, as there is j
a sheer drop of eight feet. The curve
is 10 banked that cars should be able
to round It at close to fifty miles an
hour. This will tend to make the av
erage for the race unusually high, as
it will not be necessary to slow up on
the turns.
The Soldiers' home turn Is in first
class shape and can be taken at a
fifty-mile clip. Tho turn into the Ocean
Front from Nevada avenue is gradual I
and the cars all got around this last
year without Blowing below sixty.
During the past few days there has
been a big demand for rooms. Fur
nished rooms on the course are at a
premium and the few along the road
have been rapidly snapped up. As the
hotels at Ocean Park and Venice are
not filled at this time of the year the
big crowds will probably be cared for.
but it will be wise to make reserva
tions In advance.
The demand for reserved seats is
very heavy. Of the 180 boxes 100 have
already been sold. The Southern Cali
fornia automobile club has taken a
section.
All the racing cars will he ready
the early part of next week. By Tues
day all the cars should be on the road
for the early morning tryouts. Sev
eral of the companies will establish
camps at the beach for next week.
CONGRESS WILL PROBE
INTEGRITY OF OFFICIALS
WASHINGTON, Nov. 18. — How
many government officials are honest
and what it Is worth to insure their
honesty are questions that will be
heard on a scientific basis shortly after
congress convenes next month.
Experts in the service of congress
have passed much time recently In at
tempting to reduce the matter to a
few concrete answers. Their work Is
supposed to be drawing to a close. It
will cost about $10,000.
The question arose as to the bonding
of the government officials. About a
year ago several officials appealed to
congress to raise their salaries be
cause the bonding companies had in
creased the cost of their bond to such
extent that it made their salaries look
like withered autumn leaves.
Chairman Tawney of the house ap
propriations committee proposed to
limit the amount to be paid for bond
ing government officials. That called
down the wrath of the 20-odd bonding
companies throughout the United
States. A hearing resulted.

From Mines and Oil Fields
S.P. CONTRACTS SHOW
RESERVATION FOR OIL
Railroad Commits Itself in Writ
ing While Claiming Ownership
to Petroleum Deposits
The Southern Pacific is committed
out of its own mouth as not owning
the oil contained in grants from the
government. Its deeds and contracts,
the wording of which is plain, state
specifically that Its rights underground
extend only to coal and iron. Every
patent issued to the Southern Pacific
of lands lying in or near the oil 11. Ms
of this state contains a reservation
clause by virtue of which the govern- i
ment retains all minerals in the ground
exclusive of coal and iron.
The evidence in the case, committing
tho Southern Pacific with its own
words, has been condensed by the
California Oil World. The patent
signed by Orover Cleveland under date
of December 1, 1893, continue the fol
lowing clause:
"That the United States of Amer
ica, in consideration of the premises
and pursuant to the said acts of con
gress, have given and granted and
by these presents do give and grant
unto said Southern Pacific Railroad
company of California, and to its suc
cessors and assigns, the tracts of land
selected as aforesaid and described in
the foregoing, yet excluding and ex
cepting all mineral lands should any
be found in the tracts aforesaid, but
this exclusion and exception, accord
ing to the terms of the statute, shall
not be construed to include coal and
iron lands."
RECITES AN ACT
The patent recently signed by ■Wil
liam H. Taft for Inyo, Kern and San
Bernardino county lands contains no
reservation in the grant itself but the
deed in the preliminary paragraph re
cites the act of congress under which
patent is issued, which in part is as
follows:
"Every alternate section of public
land, not mineral, designated by odd
numbers to the amount of ten miles
on each side of said railroad, not sold,
reserved, granted or otherwise appro
priated by the United States and free
from pre-emption or other claims or
rights at the time the line of said
railroad is definitely fixed."
The president, of course, being an
executive officer, is limited in the scope
of his actions by the limitation of
the statute by virtue of which he acts.
He can neither enlarge nor diminish
by his order the force and effect of
the laws which he carries into execu
tion, laws relating to land grants to
railroads not excepfed.
ADMITS TUB TKCTH
Furthermore, by its own utterances
the Southern Pacific acknowledges that
it does not own the oil rights to the
land it has received under the United
States grant.
Following is the excerpt from an
'agreement to sell a certain piece of
land located in the heart of the Kern
river field, a typical instance:
"The party of the first part agrees
that upon the punctual payment of
the purchase money, interest and all
the sums herein to be paid, and the
strict performance of all the agree
ments herein made, and the surrender
of this agreement, it will thereafter,
within thirty days from demand, cause
to be made and executed to the party
of the second part, his heirs or assigns,
a deed of conveyance granting to the
party of the second part, his heirs and
assigns, the land hereinafter described,
reserving all claim of the United States
to the said land as mineral land."
DEED RESERVES OH. RIGHTS
The contract of which the foregoing
is a part was carried out by the pur
chasers of the land and they received
a deed which contained a clause read
ing in part:
"All of fractional section , con
taining acres, according to the
United States surveys, together with
the privlliges and appurtenances there
unto appertaining and belonging, ex
cepting and reserving all liability on
the part of the Southern Pacific rail
road for taxes and assessments there
on since . the said pur
chaser having agreed with said com
pany to pay the same. . . . Also
reserving all claim of the United
States to said tract. ... As min
eral lands."
Thus the Southern Pacific is con
victed out of its own mouth of non
ownership of the oil contained in the
land it now professes to have perfect
title to.
NEWHALL BRIEFS
The Newhall district Is maintaining
a monthly production around 14,000
barrels practically all or which is ac
credited to the Standard Oil company.
The Standard is running ten strings
of tools, making a valiant effort to
determine the oil-hearing possibilities
of the territory. Newhall is classed
as a light oil district and therefore the
oil Is in great demand for refining pur
poses. Newhall liar: seventy producing
wells with an average daily output of
about 6 barrels.
Two other wells are drilling besides
those of the Standard, and D. A. Con
nell, who recently completed a small
producer, is preparing to start an
other drilling well.

JAMES WYNKOOP
PLACER WEST OF LLANO
TESTS $3 A CUBIC YARD
TTCSON, Ariz., Nov. IS.—Fernando
Mi ndea, former treasurer of tho state
of Konora, several days ago induced
the agents of tlio Wade gold machine
in Xogales to make a test run on a
sample of 100 pounds of placer dirt
from his placer holdings west of Llano.
Tho ttst was successful in many
ways. It demonstrated that Senor
Mendez was fortunate in his posses
sion of valuable gold-bearing ground
and it proved the efficiency of the
Wade process in the recovery of the.
V metal.
The placer ground in which Renor
Mendez is interested is but a abort
distance west from Llano station.
Xo care was taken In selecting the
dirt for a trial run and the showing
made gave a return on the 100 pounds
which will bring the average a ton
up to over $3. By using the largest
Wad'? machine, capacity over twenty
tons a day, the ground can be worked
at a large profit.

BOSTON, Nov. is.— The copper market wai
vrry dull. East liuiiM was active at slightly
lower prices, due to the selling; out of a I arc*
holier. The selling has no significance and
was dorm simply to change Investment*.
Toward the close the whole market showed a
rally. Vague rumors are afloat regarding* a*
consolidation of toe Lake properties under
the control of Calumet & Heels. The buying
of Calumet & Hecla was good all day and
lends strength to the rumor.
