In Favor of the Government,
Many Thousands of Acres Go Back
to the Governnienti
Washington, Dec. 15. Chief Jus
tice Fuller announced the opinion of
the supremo court In the case of the
United States ys. the Oregon & Cali
fornia, and Oregon Central companies,
lnolving titles to valuable lands near
Portland, Or., reversing the decision
of the circuit court of appeals for the
The case is what is known as the
quadrant case. The decision of the
circuit court for the district of Ore
gon found in the favor of the govern
ment's contention, but was reversed
by the circuit court of appeals. The
chief justice's opinion in turn re
verses the circuit court of appeals,
and sustains the circuit court and the
government contention. About 200,-
000 acres in Washington county 'are
involved in this decision.
In the case of Charles W. Nord
strom vs. the state of .Washington,
the opinion of the state supreme court
was affirmed. Nordstroin is under
sentence to be hanged for murder.
This decision will have the effect of
confirming the sentence. He made
an effort ito have the verdict of the
court below reversed because the pro
ceedings aRalnst him were based on a
process of Information rather than aa
indictment by the grand Jury. The
cases of Harry Kramer, charged with
murder, and Adolph Krng, defalca
tion, also from the state of "Washing
ton, were dismissed by the court.
The decision of the United States
supreme court in the quadrant
case, settles the title to about 200,000
acres of valuable land in Washington
county. More than 500 settlers occupy
the land and they will now be en
abled to get a title to the lands.
The land in question consists of a
quadrant shaped tract having a radius
of ten miles, situated adjacent to a
point above, the Tallroad which was
started to run from Portland to As
toria; stopped and turned at a right
angle and run south to McMlnnvllle.
The government claimed that there
were two roads to which the grants
were given, the Portland and Astoria
road, and the oneTunning from Ilills
boro to McMinnville, while the rail
road company claimed that the whole
was one continuous road and they
were entitled to a grant ten miles In
width along the whole line.
When the grant, on the line from
nillsboro to Astoria lapsed, many set
tlers, considering this quadrant tract
government land, took up homesteads
and pre-emption claims from the uov
ernment. Many who had bought
claims from the railroad company quit
paying them and entered their claims
tinder the law as public lands and
dome have kept on pa inp the railroad
company till tliis time. The govern
ment finally brouKlit suit, in the
United States district here to quiet
title to these lands and the cacsas
decided in favor of the government by
Judge Bellinger sutnc three years ago.
The company appealed the case to the
circuit court or appeals, -and it re
versed Judge Bellinger's decision.
Tho government then appealed to the
supremo court of the United States,
wnlch has now recrsed the court of
appearand sustained Judge Bellinger.
The settlers who have taken tlnlr
claims under the government will bo
rejoiced at this decision. Those who
have been paying the railroad com
pany will probably endeavor to secure
a return of their money, and there
will bc'.lntcrmlnab'e litigation over
