TIIE SUNDAY OREGONIAN, PORTLAND, APRIIi 18, 1913. LAND GASES TO BE ARGUED THIS WEEK Oregon Attorney-General Now in Washington to Intervene t in State's Behalf. PERMISSION TO BE ASKED i Wlicllicr Move Will Be Allowed at r I, ale Dale ltcsls With Supreme Court Argument ljikcly to T Consume Two Days. OREGONI'AN NEWS BUREAU, Wash ington, April 17. (Special). Counsel ;ln the Oregon and California land grant suit were advised at the United States 1 Supreme Court today that argument in "this case, set for Monday next, pro bably will not begin before Wednesday, lowing to the crowded condition of, the ; docket. Attorney-General Brown, of Oregon, who is here to intervene on behalf of 'the state, will be admitted to practice before the Supreme Court on Monday, and when the argument begins will ask .the court for permission to intervene, ' as directed by the Senate joint reso '.. lution passed just before the close of the last session of the State Iegis- lature. Intervention Depends on Court. Thus far. the state has not been a ' party to this litigation, and it rests with the Supreme Court to say whether ; it can, at this late date, become inter . venor. If permission is granted, the Attorney-General will file his brief on . behalf of the state and make an oral argument. Jn all probability, because of the importance of the case, two days i will be allotted for argument. ? The resolution of the Oregon Legisla ture, directing the Attorney-General to ;. intervene in the land grant suit, recites i thnt "It is of vital importance to the de ; velopment of the entire State of Oregon I and several counties in which granted ' lands are located. that such lands ' should not be withdrawn from taxation, but that they should be disposed of for settlement and development under terms of such decree as court may deem 1 Just and equitable.' Importance of Cane Urafed. The Attorney-General Is then directed "to intervene on behalf of the state in 'such manner as may be permitted by the rules of the court, for the purpose ' of securing and protecting the best in terests of the state and its citizens, and to take all steps and proceedings neces sary or permissible to safeguard such interests." If permitted to intervene, Attorney General Brown will lay this resolution before the court, pointing out the vast importance to the state of securing de crees which will permit the prompt set tlement and development of the dis puted lands. In the event the decree of forfeiture is sustained by the Su preme Court, he will show that the rail road company, which, in times past, has paid more than $3,000,000 taxes on lands involved In the suit, ceased to pay taxes when the decree of forfeiture was re turned in the district court of Oregon, ' and that since that decree no taxes have been paid by the railroad com pany. SIMILST-' Taxes Still Unpaid. ' The total assessed tax still unpaid , now totals $466,872. The state, as In , tervenor, will ask that the decree of the Supreme Court, in the event for ' feiture is sustained, require the rail road company to pay all accrued taxes to the date of the final decision of the court. If the Supreme Court decides in favor of the railroad company, the lands will be subject to taxation and accrued taxes will have to be paid. In one sense, the intervention of the State of Oregon is at cross purposes , with the plea of the Attorney-General of the United States, who asks for for feiture, and that the lands involved i revert to the public domain. It is the desire of Attorney-General Gregory, in the event the lower court is sustained, that the lands forfeited be held until Congress provides specifically for their disposition. Attorney-General Brown, under authority the Legislature, will ask the court, if it-declares forfeiture, to go further and decree that these lands shall be so disposed of that they ' may be immediately opened to settle ment and thereby become subject to taxation. Foreit Reserve Wants Lands When the innocent purchaser's act - was under consideration several years ago it was intimated that the Forest Service, in the event of forfeiture, : would ask that railroad lands be in- - eluded, in the various forest reserves to which they are adjacent, and it was , to prevent this move that legislation was framed directing that the lands, . if forfeited, should be held until Con- cress provided specifically for their disposition. lix-Representative Lafferty, who is counsel for the cross-complainants, . filed his brief with the court today. KESOLtTIOX LOXG COXSIDKKKJD fi x Aislaiil Says Attorney-General As- n signed Jlim to Task. J SALKAI, Or., April 17. (Special. A report published in Portland that At- torney-General Brown knew nothing of the Senate resolution authorizing him " to intervene in the land grant suit In ; the interest of the state until a few days before he -started for Washington "2 with his brief is at variance with a stiitement made today by I. H. Van t. Winkle, First Assistant Attorney-Gen- eral. A comprehensive brief was prepared j by the Attorney-General, which he took with him to Washington to file V with the Supreme Court. ' Senator Day -requested this orfice m to draw up a resolution along certain J- lines and Mr. Brown assigned me to do the work, said Mr. Van Winkle, "1 drew the resolution, it being a part of the work of this office to give Rep- ?- resentatives in the Legislature such at i' sistanee, and Senator Day suggested , several minor changes, which were made." The resolution was discussed at length in the Senate, and it was pointed 2 out that the state was losing a large . sum of money in taxes under the pres- . cnt status of the litigation. The At- torney-UenerRl was directed to urge ".. that if the suit finally was decided in favor of the Federal Government that .. the land so forfeited not be placed in reserves and thus withdrawn from eet- tlement and taxation. .- The lands belonging to the railroad grant involved in the suit are in 18 i counties, which contain a total area of i'3. 166.400 acres. The area of forest, . Indian, and other reservations in these f counties totals 8,871,754 acres. Adding the area of the Oregon & California v- grant, if forfeited and undisposed of, " amounting to 2,074.161 acres, the totals - of lands reserved from settlement and taxation in these IS counties would be , 10,9-10,915 acres. "It will be Been," says the Attorney ' General in his brief, "that this total -Is nearly one-half of the total area of tbe IS counties and the Oregon & California grant comprises nearly one tenth of these counties. "From the foregoing it is apparent that the State of Oregon is vitally in terested In the suit now at issue, not only in respect to having the lands in question subjected to settlement and improvement, as . contemplated in the provisions of the grant, in order that these vast areas may be improved, but also that the lands may not be with drawn from 'taxation, thus depriving the state, and especially the 18 coun ties in which they are situated, of a large proportion of their resources from direct taxes." -The total' taxes assessed against these lands included in the grant for the last year amounted to $466,872.87. The total taxes levied for state pur poses and apportioned to these coun ties for the same year was $3,213, 763.97. Thus it will be seen that the taxes against the lands in the grant amount to more than one-seventh of the entire state taxes derived from the counties in which they are located. "The State of Oregon does not wish to be understood as in any way sug gesting that the suit should not be maintained against the defendants for the purposes for which it was com menced," concludes the Attorney-General's brief, "and would urge the im portance to the state of having the action already taken and the decision of the lower court upheld at least to the extent that the defendants should not be able to further withhold said lands from development and settle ment, and thus retard the growth of the commonwealth. "In view of the fact already given. however, the State of Oregon wishes to urge upon the court the importance of such disposition being made of the sub ject matter of this suit as will not de prive the state of its revenue and especially those counties affected by reason of its granted lands forming so large a part thereof, and to urge that the lands be disposed of according to the terms of the original grant, or in some such manner as that they may pass into the hands of actual settlers for the purpose of homes, and that the state may retain its lien upon them for the taxes already levied and to be levied in coming years. "We believe the court has ample ju risdiction over the disposition of prop erty involved in this suit to make and enforce a decree by which the lands should be sold to actual settlers at not to exceed $2.50 an acre, and in quanti ties limited by the terms of the original grant, and that persons applying to purchase the same be required to make proof of such settlement, and such fur ther facts as the court may deem best to require before the register and re ceiver of the local United States land offices, subject to inspection and re port by the United States field agents, disregarding all pretended and bogus applications, and simulated filings here tofore made or attempted to be made. GOVERNOR WEST WINS SUIT (Continued From First Page.) question now remaining for you to de cide, if you find for the plaintiff, is as to the extent of the loss of prop erty. In passing on the damage your measure should be the value at the time and the place at which the seizure occurred, together with interest at 6 per cent. "The contention made is that of con version of property; that is, a wrong ful or unlawful interfering or inter meddling with and domination over the property of another. Question One of Legality. "If the fact is established in your minds that the defendant wrongfully took and retained property of the plaintiff, the latter is entitled to dam age in the value of his goods. If on the other hand you find that the de tention was lawful or done in the ex ercise of a lawful power, there can be no recovery. In addition it must be remembered that all acts of subordi nates of the defendant are to be re garded as acts of the defendant him self. "Reference has been made to the lack of popularity of the cause of the plaintiff. The court and the jury can not consider this. "The case must be tried solely on the evidence produced. The issue is, was there any lawful authority for the Gov ernor to remove the property of the plaintiff? Whether the liquor business is good or evil has nothing to do with the case. . "For the purposes of orderly conduct of the government, the' constitution of our state has defined the duties of those in charge of governmental func tions. The Governor is' given power to enforce the laws, but the military is to be kept in subordination to tbe civil government. Everyone is allowed to have a remedy by civil law. Military Liable In Courts. "The Governor is given the power to exercise his discretion in declaring martial law, may send tho militia to any given territory and may go as far as is necessary in enforcing the Jaw, if acting on reliable information, lie may suspend civil rule, but may not adjudge or declare offenses. After ward the military la liable in the courts for any actions committed. "No one is excluded from the protec tion offered by the Constitution, nor is anyone to be held answerable to it. The redress of injuries is guaranteed to all. Property may not be taken except as a necessary adjunct to law enforcement. "The , question of whether or not necessity existed for the seizure and shipping of the plaintiff's goods must be determined by the evidence, together with the character of the defendant's information as to alleged existing con ditions, furnishing his motive for the act. Convenience Mo Factor. "If he was justified in resorting to military actions and in seizing the goods, the verdict must be for him. If, however, the civil authorities are found to have been willing to act, taking away the property cannot be counten- anced. Convenience and economy are not to be considered." In a final appeal to" the jury, Mr. West spoke this morning on why he removed the liquor and ho went deeply into his knowledge of what crimes had been caused by liquor, naming Blod gett. Garrison and others. Hp said that this knowledge made him fear that there would be riot in Copperfield if the saloons were kept open after Fern Hobbs' visit. He blamed Baker County officials for their inaction as justify ing his action. "Baker County was not singled out," he said. "You know what I did in Douglas, Multnomah and Clackamas Counties, but where I had the co-operation of local officials in those places, I was thrown on my own resources here." Willingness to Pay Told. In conclusion he said: "If damages are found against me, I am willing to pay the price. I would give everything I possess to protect the youth of this state. . I am answer able to the people of this community and to God Almighty or what I have done. "These matters of personal rights and property rights strike home dif ferently. 'The verdict of this jury is being anxiously awaited by every saloon keeper, gambler and bootlegger in the state, whom nothing would give keener satisfaction than to see me stuck for the money consideration in this case. But.it .suffices for me to know that every mother and every father knows I was right and that I did what I did because I believed it was the proper thing to do. I would have been a traitor to my state if I had disre garded the Copperfield appeal. My act was right In the eyes of the law and in the eyes of God." RAILWAY'S' EQUITY IN LANDS IS DENIED Government Contends Oregon & California .Thwarted State's Development CASE TO BE ARGUED SOON N'o Kcason Kxlsts, Says Brief, to In dicate Congress Had Confidence in Company Reverse De clared to Be True. i OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash ington, April 17. "The terms of the actual settlers provisions of the acts of 1869 and 1870 are as plain as lan guage can make them. There cannot be and never could have been any just reason for misunderstanding their meaning. More than 40 years ago the Oregon & California Railroad Company sought and obtained from the Secretary of the Interior an interpretation of those provisions which is in complete harmony with what the Government now claims. From that interpretation the Government has never deviated. Notwithstanding this, the defendant company has flagrantly violated the Congressional acts, and now seems to think the Government harsh in calling upon it to suffer the consequences of its misconduct." This quotation is from the conclu sion of the Government's brief in the Oregon & California land grant suit, which is to be argued before the United States Supreme Court next Tuesday or Wednesday. The brief adds: "There is not a single equity in the company's favor. For every dollar in taxes paid it has received more than $3 out of the lands. For every dollar in value given to the Government in the form of free transportation it has received about $6 from the proceeds of the lands. For upward of a quarter of a. century the company has, for its own selfish purposes and in contempt of the laws of the country, withheld these lands from home-seekers and thwarted the industrial development of a large section of a great Btate, and at this momtnt demands the right to con tinue in Us vicious work of obstruc tion." Cross-Complainants Called Trespassers. Turning then to the cross-complainants, who urge that the settlers' pro vision creates a trust in favor of actual settlers and that they are entitled to avail themselves of it. the brief says: "There is nothing in the actual set tlers provision Indicating that Con gress had confidence in the railroad company. The reverse is true. Expe rience had demonstrated that railroad companies. In matters of the kind, should be restrained, not trusted." ZTurthermore, It is contended that if the cross-complainants have actually settled on the lands of the railroad company, they are trespassers. Of the interveners the brief says: "The interveners claim that the grant makes a standing offer to anyone who may qualify himself to accept it. They say that they have qualified them selves by declaring their intention to become actual settlers and tendering the price fixed in the grant. They say that their position is analagous to that of pre-emptors and homesteaders. This is on the assumption that the grant, like the pre-emption, and homestead acts, is an offer of sale, which we deny. But suppose it is, when does the pre-emptor or homesteader acquire a vested right against the Government Not until he has performed all that is required of him by the law to entitle him to a patent. Up to that time he has no vested right. Restrictions Are Ignored. It is the contention of the Govern ment that the actual settlers provision constitutes a condition subsequent. "In selling the granted lands the railroad company has always ignored the re strictions imposed by Congress," con tend Government counsel. "The lands have been disposed of solely with the object of deriving the greatest possible financial benefit therefrom. Nearly all the more serious violations have taken place since 1894, after an active de mand for the land by speculators, in large quantities, had been developed by the Southern Pacific Company." Denying that the principal object of the grant was to secure the building of a railroad, as asserted by the Oregon & California attorneys. Government counsel says: "The project had its origin in the desire of the people of the Pacific Coast to develop the resources of that rich area and to induce people to come into it and settle upon the lands. The building of the road was to be a means to this end. The Government had no pressing need, ' peculiar to itself, for a railroad. Troops, the mail and prop erty of the Government could be con veniently conveyed by sea between the different points on the Coast." The Government contends the set tlers' clause applied to all the granted lands, timber as well as clear lands. Even though some of the land cannot be cultivated, it is contended the railroad was still obligated to sell at $2.60 an acre, the law .being specific on that, point. 1 "If the railroad company had put these lands on the market for sale ac cording to the terms of the grants it would have been demonstrated within a short time that there were thousands of people willing to take them and establish their abodes thereon. If that had been done, what is now a wilder ness would be a land of homes filled with happy and prosperous citizens," contends counsel for the Government.

Sloss and Gentle Interests Reaarded as Important In Forming Working Coatrol in Salmon Output. SAN FRANCISCO. April 17 (Spe cial.) It developed today that the buyers of 8100 shares of Alaska Pack ers' Association stock from the Sloss and Gerstie families were not a large Eastern interest as at first believed, but the Armsbys of this city. Whether the stock was bought for the account of the Armsbys as individuals or for the Armsby Company of New York, a holding and financing concern, was not disclosed. It is understood that the presence in New York of George Armsby has something to do with the financing of the purchase. The J. K. Armsby Company has had for some years a contract with the Alaska Packers' Association for a large part of the association's salmon out put. Possibility that the contract would not be renewed has been a serious hazard for the Armsby Company. With a large investment in distributing facilities and organization it follows that the relations between the two concerns were vital to the prosperity of the Armsby Company. In the past the 8100 shares of Sloss and Gerstie stock have formed a work lag control of Alaska Packers, and it is concluded here that the same stock in the hands of the Armsbys will serve the same purpose.
