Washington Special Counsel Con
tendsDifrerently, Holding $2.50
an Acre Was Stipulation
by the Government.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, April 2". Argument of the
Oregon & California land grant case
before the Supreme Court was con
cluded today. C. J. Smyth, special
counsel for the Government, occupied
the morning, following generally the
lfne f his brief.
He denied the contention of the rail
road company that the Government haf
acquiesced in the sales of land contrary
to the provisions of the actual settlers
clause, and said that only Congress
could take cognizance of the violation
of the terms of the grant and that Con
gress was not advised of these viola
tions when they were made.
He cited a letter, written by Secre
tary of the Interior Delano, in 1852,
In which he interpreted the settlers
clause to require the railroad company
to sell its granted lands to settlers in
not more than quarter section tracts,
and for not more than $2.50 an acre.
Interpretation Mot Reversed.
He said that this Interpretation had
never been reversed by any succeed
ing Secretary, and therefore is to be
regarded as the Government's inter
pretation of the grant.
He declared the Union Trust Com
pany had no equities superior to those
of the railroad company, as it had
knowledge of the granting acts when it
gave mortgages on the land and be
cause it has signed every deed given
after mortgage. He further contended
that' the railroad company, to date, has
received from the lands sold almost as
much as it was lawfully entitled to
receive from the entire grant, if dis
posed of as required by law.
Mr. Smyth maintained that a decree
of forfeiture would not injure the
Union Trust Company, as its mortgages
cover rights of way, trackage, rolling
stock and other property and that its
mortgages are amply secured to guard
it against any loss.
Some Land Uninhabitable.
He made no mention of a decree of
specific performance, in the event the
court does not affirm a decree of for
feiture. Ex-Senator Spooner closed for Union
Trust Company. He laid much stress

Tuesdays War Moves
ON THE narrow, rocky Gallipoli
Peninsula in Turkey and on a re
stricted front stretching northward
from Tpres in Belgium, two of the most
vital struggles of the war are now in
progress. Neither struggle has yet
reached a stage which would permit of
a prediction of the ultimate result.

warships, and are trying to batter their
way through thousands of German-officered

O Wording to the British assertions
the attack is progressing, but a Turk
ish communication received in London
yesterday declares that, although the
allies landed forces at four points,
these forces are being beaten back to
the coast, while the Moslems in the
French ranks are deserting the Tri
color and casting their lot with their
Equally contradictory are the official
statements concerning the fighting in
the vicinity of Tpres. It would appear
that the German offensive north of that
city, which resulted in the recent gain
of nearly three miles, has reached its
limit, and that, although the Germans
hold most of the ground they gained,
the question now is whether they have
sufficiently consolidated the new line
to retain it.
The rush over, the British troops
are now said to have taken the of
fensive and are striking toward St.
Julien, which the Germans captured,
while the French on the British left
not only have pushed the Germans
from Lizerne, their new lodgment on
the west bank of the canal nearest
Calais, but have crossed the canal and
hold Het Sas on the east bank.
The German official communication
of yesterday, which records no prog
ress for the German troops, admits
that the British took the offensive to
ward St. Julien. but insists that the
successive attacks broke down.
Some sections of the British press
profess the belief that the crisis in the
new battle, or series of battles, for the
French coast has passed, but others
are of the opinion that the end is not
"Fate of Calais still hangs in the
balance." says the Evening News. "The
