Edmund Burke in Suit to Recover
Mineral Lands Discloses the
Railroad's Weakness
Edmund Burke, whoso caso against
Uu Southern Pacific will como up In
the federal court here today in an at
tempt to recover part of the mineral
hinds held by that corporation under
patent containing an exception to
mineral, < 'intends In nn open loteer
that tlie Southern Pacific at best makes
and can make only a technical defense.
Mr. Burke'H lottc r is supplementary to
a series of open letters between Judgo
Frank H. Short, a corporation lawyer
of Fresno, nnd Editor Charles P. Fox
of the California Oil World.
The gist of these letters has already
been published In The Herald, wherein
it ivns made plain by excerpts from do
minions, deeds and contracts that the
Southern Pacific does not own any
mineral contained In the lands of its
grants from the government, except
coal and Iron.
Even Its recent patent to some 100,000
acres In this state, signed by William
H. Taft, that made no provision for the
exception of mineral therein, is fully
covered by an net of congress, leaving
practically nothing upon which the
Southern Pacific can base its defense.
The text of Mr. Burkes letter to Mr.
Fox follows:
"The Issue on that subject is now
made up and will bo presented to Judge
Hoss on the 21st lnst. In a suit that I
am maintaining against the Southern
Pacific Railroad company to recover
part of the mineral lands covered by
patent containing an exception to min
eral lands. When this suit was first
instituted it was termed a raid on
vested rights and upon the rights of
innocent purchasers, and lawyers rep
resenting the Southern Pacific Railroad
company affected to treat the suit with
disdain, prophesying that It was not
based on a sound, legal proposition nnd
would quickly fail, and now, on the
eve of the contest, we find the South
ern Pacific Hallroad company interpos
ing only technical defenses and nook
ing, through articles .'■imilar to that re
ceived by you from Mr. Short, to create
an atmosphere that the taking of thoso
lands a way from the Southern Pacific
railroad company would be a. great in-
"The fact remains that th« congress
of the United States never Intended to
give those lands to the railroad' com
pany, and the courts and congress have
said so time and time again, and yet
in the year 1910 we, find the Southern
Pacific Railroad company claiming
Under an agricultural patent mineral
lands of greater value than Its entire
watered i system all -the way from San
Francisco to New Orleans.
"I. notice that Judge Short says his
point of view is that during all of the
years that have intervened since the
patent issued, it has never been ques
tioned, that .the full title did not-pass
under the' patents, while as a matter
of fact the supreme court of this state,
time and time again, the United States
supreme court upon two occasions,
passing upon the explicit question,
have held that the exception was a
part of the description and that oral
evidence was competent to show the
mineral character of the lands and thus
avoid the. patent, and these decisions
have never been questioned by anyone
until the late Secretary Hitchcock on
the ex parte application of the law de
partment of the Northern Pacific Rail
road company, without notice or hear
ing held that. the inclusion of such an
exception was warranted by the Bar
den decision, while us a matter of
fact the Barden case expressly held it
was the boumlen duty of the govern
ment to Insert an exception in this
"In Washington .they call such a de
cision as' Hitchcock's politics. An an
alogous case would be presented if th«
following happened: Suppose prior to
the last ■ primary election William F.
Herrtn had gone to Washington and
requested Oscar Trawler to make a rul
ing, a further ruling, that the excep
tion in the patents in no way affected
the title of the Southern Pacific Rail
road company. Now, what do you sup
pose Mr. Lawler would do under the
circumstances, and what effect do you
think it would have upon the judg
ment of the sober minded citizens of
this state who are familiar with what
the political. situation was then?
"There are no Innocent purchasers of
Southern Pacific lands unless It bo
contended that the Associated Oil com
pany and the K. T. O. are innocent
purchasers under alleged leases of
•mineral lands' obtained by the South
ern Pacific Railroad company under an
agricultural patent.. ' .
"Judge Short says in his communica
tion to you that: 'Later 1 day discovery
of' alleged leg il error , of subject so
carefully investigated and for so long
a time accepted is of very shadowy and
doubtful Import.' As a matter of fact
there never was any Investigation,
careful or otherwise.
"In May, 1892, Jerome Madden made
nn affidavit that some 450,000 acres of
land were non-Interdicted mineral
lands, while as a matter of fact many ,
of those lands were covered with re
corded mining locations and five days |
later the accommodating officers of j
the government, then at Vlsalla, with
out notice, contest or hearing, ap
proved the selections and rushed them
along to Washington, where subse
quent patents, with mineral exception,
were issued, and as Judge McFarland
said in Gale vs. Best, It was fair ar
gument to say, the Southern Pacific
Railroad company took that reserved ;
and unrestricted patent with full
knowledge of Its unstable and uncer
tain character,, and in that same case
Judge McFarland held that a Southern .
Pacific railroad grant patent was only j
conclusive when Issued without reser
vation and no one has ever accused
Judge McFarland or the supreme court
of California, denying even an exact
Justice to the Southern Pacific Rail
road company in any of the litigations
, that has finally reached that court.
"Of course, neither my opinion nor
the opinion of anyone off tho bench
is of any consequence In this matter,
but 'it annoys me to have eminent
counsel deprecating agitation when an
honest effort is being made to wring
from the Southern' Pacific its ill gotten
lands." _
SANTA MARIA, Nov. 20.—Hnrtnoll
No. 2 in the main field, owned by tho
Union OH company and close to the
famous Hartnell No. 1, has re-eßtab

The Premier Oil company has Just
completed Its fifteenth well on the south
line of the 160 acre* in Motion 21-30-14,

average of production and Ik running
180 barrel! a day. The company is now
estimated to" have ■ production' of bet
ter 'than 68,000 barrels monthly. The
property Is to be taken over by the Cal

Doheny Company Now Has Nine
Producers and 1,250,000
Barrels in Storage
TAFT, Nov. 20.—The American Oil
fields has finished wells Nos. GO and
57, on tho south line of the northeast
quarter of section 36. 31-22, and has
them on the pump and Mowing. They
are said to be good for about 250 bar
rels each and improving as the sand
Is cleared from the holes.
The American has eleven wells on
production, of which nine are pump
Ing. The company has 1,250,000 barrels
In stofage on the property. There an:
eight 65,000-barrel steel tanks full and
four more building, besides 600,000 bar
rels are Btored In a cement lined
reservoir and a GOO.UOO-barrel cement
reservoir Is being built on section 25,
31-23. When this is finished the big :
1,800,000-barrel earthen reservoir in i
tho edge of tho hills on t[ie south end
of 36 will, be abandoned, the loss from
such storage being so great that the
company cannot afford to use it, even
The American is drilling four wells
on 36 and rigging up for eight more. ;
liiHsmuc. as the big wells have fallen j
off in their production, it is probablo
that four strings of tools will be run
all the time.
The day of the earthen sump hole Is
passing. Operators, alarmed at the
enormous loss by seepage of the light
oils produced in this field, will use ce
ment freely hereafter, lining all sump
holes. One operator estimates the
loss In the Midway and Marlcopa dis
tricts at 25 per cent of the whole. He j
had occasion recently to shut down j
one well for two days. The receiving
tanks being full, the oil was left stand- i
ing in the sump hole, and he declares
that it went down a foot and a half In
that time from evaporation and seep- j
age. Unlike water, which swells tho j
soil and cracks seepage, oil opens the i
dirt in cracks, through which the oil
The Globe Exploration company,
which succeeded Tancy, on section 15,
31-22, has recently finished well No. S
in t' j heavy oil sanu. The well is on
the pump and is accredited with a
dally production of 200 barrels of 13
gravity oil. The company has throe
other wella on the beam and is Belling
to the Standard.
It is the intention of the company
to put the next well down to a second
and light oil sand believed to underfie '
the country. Well No. 1, which was ]
drilled by Yancy as a discovery well,,|
belongs to the Refining and Producing
company, which took over the Yancy ;
holdings when a division of properties
was made some months ago.
The United Oil company Is still try
ing to get well No. 7 on the Midway
6 property farther down into the sand.
Loose boulders above, which have I
worked down between the collars of
the casing retard tho work. Tho well
is some ninety feet in the sand, with
a heavy head of gas, and is flowing
between the casings. It Is in the north
west comer of the property.
The Fox Oil company has shut off
the water In well No. 2, on the south
line of the southeast quarter of sec
tion 15, 31-22, at 1600 feet, and wlli go
ahead for the second sand, which is
believed to contain oil of light gravity.
This Is the farthest northwest of
any well to seek the second sand, and
the result will be watched with In
terest by operators in that section of
tho North Midway field.
At a recent meeting of the directors
of the Sierra Madre club it v.-as de
cided that the club would entertain
members at a dinner in the club rooms
Wednesday, November 30. Matters con
nected with several important changes
in bylaws and relating to the suggest
ed new quarters will be discussed.
Theodore Wores, the well known art

Receives Encouragement
COALINGA, Nov. 20.—The oil well !
supply houses of Coallnga are doing |
more business today than they did
during the dull times several years ago
by comparison to the per cent of proved
territory. The stock of supplies of ev
ery kind has been added to during the |
past two months, the yards getting |
filled with pipe and casing, and the,
■tores and warehouses carrying a full i
supply of needed material, all of the)
latest pattern and up to date. The
feeling is that after January 1, 1911. i
when a full compliance with the terms
of the .Agency-Union-Associated con- i
tract will be in effect that new develop- j
ment work will start and that much ;
better conditions will prevail. The sta- :
bility of this field and town appeals to
the business man. I
Well No. 2 of the British Consolidat- |
ed Oil corporation, limited ,on section !
12, 19-16. is 2460 feet deep with 10-inch
casing and will carry this string to
2500 feet at least, shutting off the water I
in, the red clay. The 8%-inch string
will be carried to 2800 feet, to finish up
I with the 6Vi-inch. The company Is;
! prepared to go 4000 feet should It be
necessary, but undoubtedly the well i
will be completed within 8600 feet. This
is the light oil territory of the Coalinga
field, all deep wells on the east side
having secured the light oil sands.
The Pulvadero Oil company Is operat
ing on the east end of the south half of
I section 2, 21-16, land owned by William
Orr of Coallnga. The company also has
the northwest quarter of section 12,
21-16, owned by the same party.
The Coalinga anticline passes
through the west end of the 160 acres
; now being operated. The well being
i drilled with a rotary is 1000 feet deep
I and the formation resembles that
passed through by the Mohawk, on
'< section 12, 20-15, at about 2000 feet.
i The location Is south on the low sand
; hills between the railroad and the
j Pulvadero creek. Apparently, from j
present indications, this will not be |
! deep territory as Indicated by the |
j United States geological survey.
The Creme Petroleum on section 30,
j 20-15, has finished drilling on well No.
| 1 at 2800 feet with 6-inch casing. The
i well will be completed in a day or two.
The Kern Trading and Oil company
has material on the ground for five
! rigs on section 25, 20-14, and two new
; standard rigs have been erected on
I section 31, 20-15. These when drilled
into the oil sand will add to the wells
near town.
The company, on section 35, 19-15, is I
12719 feet deep with the rotary. The j
1 formation under this section has a
number of hard shells, making slow
work with a rotary.
The holding oft of winter rains Is a
great benefit to the several companies j
which have their sump holes full of oil, |
as a heavy rain with present field con-,
ditlons would mean a great loss to some
of the properties here.

FRESNO, Nov. 17.—An assessment |
of 10 cents a share on all outstanding
Coalinga National oil stock will in all
probability be levied by the directors
of that company within the next day
Of so, according' to a report circulated
about town. In a report issued to the :
stockholders on October 27, the direc- i
tors of the company announced that
owing to a great amount of Indebted
ness which has been incurred on tho
producing well, which the company
now owns, it would probably be nec
essary to levy an assessment as the
low price of the stock on the market
made it inadvisable to issue any more

NEVADA CITY, Nov. 20.—Word
comes from Washington to the effect
that the richest and most extensive
strike yet made in the famous Red
Ledge mine, two miles this side of
Washington, occurred there a few days
ago. The Red Lodge is being worked
by the Williams brothers and Clyde
Cole, who own the property.
Tho owners brought to Washington
a large box filled with specimens. The
ore is "lousy" wtlh the precious metal
and Is as beautiful an any ever seen
in this part of the state.
It was in the lower tunnel that the
big find was made, and it is holding
out ever since. Not only in the lower
tunnel has the rich bonanza come in,
but a fine showing is also made In tho
upper tunnel, where not so much work
has been done.
From whivt can be learned the ore
found in the lower tunnel will go thou
sands of dollars to the ton.
Arrangements will be made for start
ing the Templor oil into the Producers'
Transportation company's pipeline.
The Templor Ranch Oil company, the
Shear Petroleum, the Dillon Oil com
pany and the Canadian Queen have
among them about 30,000 barrel* of oil
stored in the Templor field. They got
ready months ago to pump oil into the
Producers' line, but on account of the
shutdown never made any deliveries.

near Fellows. The company has many
applications for gas and is awaiting
the arrival of "regulators" to increase
its service. In all seven boilers are

Officials of the Midway Premier have
succeeded in placing a, double set of
gates on its big gusher in the North
Midway field after many houra' work
with the monster, according to ad
vices from the field.
However, there is much doubt re
garding the ability of the gates to
hold down the immense volume of gas
and oil in the well and no surprise
would be manifested if the gates*were
blown away by the gas and oil.
SANTA MARIA, Nov. 20.—The Cas
malia Petroleum company In the main
field, adjoining the Southern Pacific
producing property, has reached the
first sands at 1450 feet. The well has
been drilled with the intention of test
ing the earlier sands, but it looks as if
it would have to be pushed down to
another sand to get a paying produc
tion. A 10-inch casing is being used at
this depth.
The production of the Jewell Oil
company, Kern river field, Is constant
ly increasing und Is now running better
than TuOO barrels a month. All the pro
ducing wells will be making a it
production within the next two weeks,
when it is expected a still greater'out
put will be maintained. W. C. Daniel
is field manager, with F. T. Elder, an
experienced operator, in direct charge
of operations.
Elmer M. Bray and associates of,
Los Angeles havo leased the north halt' I
of (section 11, 17-11 In the Vallecitos
field and —ill begin development work
on it at once. The lease is near the
holding of the Range 16 Oil company,
which spudded in a few days ago and
is making excellent progress. Twelve
and one-half-inch casing is being used
und will be carried down for at least
800 feet.
KERN RIVER, Nov. 20.—Tho Bos
ton Petroleum company on section 20
has contracted the sale of its output
for a short period of time to the
