The foregoing list of questions was
submitted to United States District At
torney Robert T. Devlin yesterday by
a representative of The Call. Devlin
flushed hotly as he read them, and when
he. had finished he was agitated an.
"Who sent you here with thoseT' he
. demanded.
: "The editor of The Call." was the
' r*p!y.
VYou can tell the editor of The Call
, to go to h — W announced Devlin.
- After his passionate outburst the
federal district attorney calmed himself
'I don't care to enter Into any con
troversy about tire matter," said Dev
.".lin. • "I have a right to engage In law
cases outside of my office. At this
'moment Assistant United States Dis
trict Attorney Clark Is trying an In
.fringement of patent case in the Unite
States circuit court, which he has a
. right to do. I have opened a law office
In the Crocker building with Stratton
and Kauffman. where I shall take pri

The question which stirred - the dis
trict attorney's anger was prompted by
his participation a* a. Southern Pacific
attorney In a case In the United States
district court la which the city of Sac
ramento has been trying to keep the
Harrlman corporation from gobbling
.a lar#e part of it* river front and ex
cluding the Western Pacific X)n Tues
day last Judge Van Fleet denied the
city's petition for a temporary Injunc
tion against the Southern Pacific. As
was stated in The Call of Wednesday, j
United States Attorney Devlin ap- i
pcared in the superior court of Sacra
mento county in behalf of the Southern
Pacific when the case was heard at the
"capital city some time ago..
Later In the day, when his temper
ature was back to normal. District At
torney Devlin volunteered a further
statement, not desiring, he said, to have
his refusal to answer the questions mis
"Before I was appointed to this of
fice," said Devlin. *"I had cases from the
Southern Pacific company, and some df
these cases are yet pending. But I was
never under salary. I received a fee
for each case I took. That matter. of
my acting a* attorney for the railroad
company was thoroughly discussed-be
tween President Roosevelt and the at

They had been advised that I had re

for my services and' that I had never
been under salary Co Aat corporation.
