the Burke and Roberts case. A large
part of the lands are situated in the
very heart of the Coalinga field. Com
petent experts say that probably 50,000
acres of land included in this patent are
proven oil lands.
If this assumption be carrect, the
first suit Instituted by the government
probably will include more than one
third of all of the oil lands. All of the
other suits involving these oil lands
have been filed in Fresno, for the
reason that the lands are situated in
the northern division Of the southern
district of California.
In all probability the government
suits also will be filed in Fresno, for
the reason that suits Involving land
must be filed in the district or division
where the lands are situated.
EXCEPTION IN ORIGINAL GRANT
In the act of July 27, 1566. conferring
the Southern Pacific main line grant,
and upon which it predicates its title
to the vast oil land region in the San
Joaquln valley, over which it now Is
exercising a sovereignty of ownership
in fee simple, the following exception
Is made:
Provided, further, that aU min
eral lands be and the same are
hereby excluded from the opera
tion of this act; * • • and pro
vided further, that the word min
eral, when it occurs in this act,
shall not be held to Include iron
or coal.
The basis of the Southern Pacific
company's contention that it has be
come vested with the right, title and in
terest of the government in and to
those lands, which, since the grant
was made have been demonstrated to be
pearoleum land, and, therefore, of the
class not granted. Is that it has received
patents to them from the United States;
that the parents were issued wih the
consent of the general land office after
it had exercised its function in de
termining , the character, of the land.
The quanlity of the estate granted to
the Southern Pacific was measured a<
tiirt Uitfae tiie leoral ijtlf- wm v • «• d i>y
the fixing of the route of definite loca
tion of the railroad and that quantity
was exclusive of mineral lands other
than iron and coal. Of course, lands
that are mineral now were mineral
then. Had they been discovered then
to be mineral or at any time prior to
issuance of patents and for that rea
, B<>n upht Xl, no one would for a mo
ment contend that the railroad com
pany was being deprived of anything,
because the land simply had not been
granted to it. It is contended, there
fore, that the revocation of patent at
this time would take nothing from the
railroad to which it rightfully is en
tilled because the mineral land was ex
cepted in the original grant.
IMMENSE GRANTS ARE MADE
The Southern Pacific and its subsidi
aries have been allowed grants of pub
lic land embracing 26,177,. r >]B acres to
assist them in building their lines. The
value of this land would more than
wipe out the national debt- In the
land claimed by the Southern Pacific
are rich oil and agricultural lands and
also great timber forests. The several
grants are as follows:
To the Southern Pacific company
(main line from San Jose to the
Needles on the Colorado river) by
act of congress, July 27, IS66—
acres.
To the Southern Pacific company
(branch line from Mojave, Cal., by
way of Los Angeles to Yuma, Ariz.,
by act of congress, March 3, 1871 —
#,044,080 acres.
To the Central Pacific company
(from Soeramento to Ogden, by
acts of congress, July 1, 1862, and
July -2. 1564—9.379,142.
To the California and Oregon
Railroad company from near Sac
ramento northward to the Califor
nia-Oregon state line, by act of
congress, July 25, 1866—3,266,128
acres.
To the Oregon and California
Railroad company from the .Call
fornia-Oregon state line to Port
land, Ore., by acts of congress,
July 25, 1866; June 26, 1868, and
April 10, 1869—3,821,908 acres.
MUCH LAXD IS FORFEITED
To the Oregon Central Railroad
company from Portland, Ore., to
MeMinnville, Ore., by act of con
gress May 4, 1870—397,602 acres.
* By the act of congress of July 27,
18G6, by which the Southern Pacific
main line grant was made there was
allowed to the Atlantic and Pacific
Railroad company a quantity of land
estimated by the general land office of
the United States at 14,539,804.69 acres.
A large portion of this grant was for
feited by act of congress of July 6,
1886, on account of the failure of the
Atlantic and Pacific to complete*por
tions of its road coterminus with such
forfeited portions of the'grant.
It so happened that the limits of the
two grants to the Southern Pacific
and the Atlantic & Pacific overlapped
and confiiced. The forfeiture act re
ferred to was looked upon by the
Southern Pacific as another act o£
benevolence on the part of congress.
It promptly laid claim to all that por-

be seen running across the vacant lots.
The women, however, were not so
easily defeated, and stood their ground
much longer. Presently they took
refuge in a number of shacks in the
vicinity that the families had been oc
cupying. They managed to barricade
the doors and windows and the police
were compelled to lay siege to the for
tifications.
The screams of the women and the
cries of the children filled m the air
while the police battered their way in.
The women being finally subdued, the
police then turned their attention to
rounding up the men who had fled.
Sixteen men were found hiding in va
rious places In the neighborhood and
were returned to the camp.
It was derided not to arrest the*
women on account of the children

booked at the North End station for
disturbing the peace and the police

tion of the forfeited Atlantic & Pa
cific grant situated within its own
limits.
The progress of the Southern Pacific
up to this time In obtaining franchises,
subsidies, land grants and special priv
ileges of all kinds met with but little
opposition at the hands of those of
ficials who were supposed to be serv
ing the people, but in this instance it
came in contact with the supreme
court of the United States. The court
declared that the lands sought by the
Southern Pacific out of those which
congress had declared forfeited had
not been granted to it and held that
title to them was revested in the
United States.
DISCOVERIES INVALIDATE! GRAXTS
It is contended that by the very dis
coveries that made the land so valuable
the railroad has forfeited title. It defi
nitely was stipulated that all mineral
lands, save coal and Iron, were to be
eliminated from the grant. It was on
the declaration of the railroad, alone,
that the lands were not mieral that
title was bestowed.
The value of these lands is estimated
at from $500,000,000 to $1,000,000,000.
Here, then, would be presented the
spectacle of a private corporation at
taining through subterfuge of a doubt
ful validating act to public wealth suf
ficient to pay the national debt.
It is held locally that the land cases
may be returned to their original status
and all complaining features removed
through the repeal of the act fixing the
six year statute of .limitations. The
counter cry of "vested rights" is pre
dicted.
It Iβ believed that congress can, if it
will, repealw the acts of 1891 and 1896
and remove any bar which now shields
the railroad companies from suits by
the government to cancel patents to
mineral lands, erroneously or wrong
fully issued, whether such patents are
six years old or less.
An important element in this deter
mination is the court ruling that the
actual transfer went with the grant
and the patent merely was collateral
evidence of this. The mineral lands,
never granted, could never pass under
patent.

attend any of the alternative projects
in building an aqueduct across the Sac
ramento river, the marsh and delta
lands. Oarquinez straits and the bay of
Ran Francisco. The question of safety,
as well as money, enters into his calcu
lations. Our own engineers have shown
that an aqueduct such as would be
necessary to bring the MeCloud river
water to the city would be entirely Im
practicable."
PERMIT TO BE DRAFTED
In anticipation of the possible favor
able action of the board of army en
gineers, and for the guidance of Fisher
himself, the secretary of the interior
requested the mayor upon his return to
San Francisco to prepare a permit, such
as the city officials here think would
cover every point raised by the he%d of
the department in the hearing. This
document, winch will be forwarded to
Secretary Fisher early in January, will
deal with the questions of sanitation,
use of water power, work to be done by
the city in and around thep roposed
reservoir site, patrolling of the reser
voir and camping , grounds in future
years and, finally, the steps taken to
ward the acquisition of Spring Valley.
All of these matters were brought up
at the hearing and Fisher wishes to
have the city's suggestions known to
him before making his final disposi
tion of the case.
Corps of engineers are already at
work collecting the data and drawings
requested by the government. Pull
details of the McClmid river project, in
cluding estimates, supply and risks of
bringing the water to San Francisco
will be in the harsds of Secretary Fisher
before 10 o'clock Monday morning , , De

new map showing the proposed shore
line of the Hetch Hetrhy reservoir will
be supplied.

OROVILL.E, Dec. B.—The beauties of
the Feather river canyon, which were
opened to the world by the advent of
the transcontinental Western Pacific
railroad, today were viewed by the
members of the San Francisco Com
mercial club, the Oakland boosters, the
delegates to the counties convention
of the California Development board,
and members of the Oroville Chamber
wise were directed to furnish supple
mentary «iala, which must be ready and
in the hands of the secretary at the
same hour. Representatives of both
the city and the water company de
clared they would not cause further
delay by exceeding the time limit.
The board of armyengineers, which
will pass upon the, city's application
for a permit to use Hetch Hetchy. is
composed of Colonel Biddle. Colonel
Taylor and Colonel Cosby. In spite of
the delay that will be caused by the
Christmas holidays. Secretary Fisher
told Mayor Rolph that the board could
be expected to make its reromtnenda
tion within a month, and that as soon
thereafter as possible ne would an
nounce his own ruling.
Among the interesting stories
brought lack by the mayor from the
hearing were several that show how
complete was the route of the "nature
lovers,"' who came #down from New
York and eleewhere to oppose San
Francisco's claims. The press dis
patches sent from Washington when
I the hearing was in progress carried
some of these, but the typewritten
transcript of testimony shows even
better how Secretary Fisher regarded
the "sentimental" plea.
Tire hearing was drawn to an end
and Alden Sampson of New York, who
appeared as a represerftative of the!
Sierra club, was dwelling on the in
describable beauty of Hetch Hetchy
that would be lost to future genera
tions if San Francisco made a lake of
the valley floor. He declared the 1,700
members of the Sierra club had voted
in the ratio of four to one against using
the valley for a reservoir.
At this point Mayor Rolph arose and
offered in evidence a copy of the. ballot
whereby an expression of opinion was I
obtained in the club two years ago. As
will be remembered, this ballot did not
put the real question, but asked the
voting club member to approve or dis
approve giving San Francisco posses
sion of Hetch Hetchy "without further
investigation."
Secretary Fisher Interrupted Sampson
long enough to read the ballot aloud.
! Holding it in his hand before the
speaker, he asked:
"Isn't that a crooked ballot, now?
Do you really believe it was fair?"
Sampson dodged a direct answer, but
Fisher went on relentlessly, asking the
same question half a dozen times in dif
ferent "ways. At the end, he said:
"Since you obviously are not inclined
to answer, I will not press the point,
but, really, could that vote have been
taken more unfairl than it was?"
"If it was done that way I suspect
there was some reason," parried Samp
son.
*'I suspect the same thing," said
Fisher, dryly.

the special train of eight coaches. This
noted assemblage of the state's lead

canyon as far east as Belden in Plumas
county, 55 miles northeast of Oro
ville.
The day was an ideal one. The sun

ing was cold, but in their comforta
bly heated cars the excursionists sat
back and enjoyed the panoramic views
unfolded to them as the train sped
along, rounding curves, hanging close
to the precipitous cliffs towering
and looking over the lofty embank
ment into the clear waters of the river
below. Occasionally a trout or a salmon
was sighted for an instant in the
waters below. On the mountain sides
there were the primeval forests of
pine. Many of these have never felt
the blow of a lumberman's ax. The
train stopped in Los Plumas, where the
Great Western Power Company has its
great plant. Here the electricity is
generated that is delivered by a lofty
steel tower line ending at San Fran
cisco.
After a hasty survey of this plant
from the opposite bank of the north
fork of the Feather river, the train
sped on around the famed big bend, a
distance of 14 miles, to reach the in

the mountain to the power plant in

train was stopped at tunnel 1. three
miles east of Oroville. and the excur

sides, gathering the .so-culled Cali

These berries were loaded upon the
