WASHINGTON , August 3. The report
port adopted by thu house committe
on judiciary to-day to accompany th
resolution declaring forfeited the land
granted to the Texas & Pacific rail
road company , aftnf giving the history
of the Texas Pacific and reviewing it
relations with the ! Southern Pa-siG
company , goes on to say : The Tuxa
& Pacific , one party to the grant o
contract , have made no effort to carry
it out , having ronqunctil itbothinfor
niaily and formally , by acts and b ;
writing , there can bo no question o
the nght of the United States , tin
other party , to re&umo possession o
Iho proposed urant , unless the Southern
orn Pacific have acquired some right
by virturo of noma deed or release on
1 > ah lf of the Texas & Pacific" It i
urged the words used in the Oth sec
fion , "There is thereby granted saic
Texas ( .Pacific railroad company , i n
successors and assigns , every alternate
section , " etc. , authorized the lattci
company to transfer the lands in ques
tion , in bulk , to any other persoi
who would receive it chargiu
with the same trust , that the Southern
orn Pacific having lewived the laudi
at the time when ( they had complete *
the railroad , whiijh was the same or
nearly the sinio aa that described it
the act of March , 1871 , received the
lands discharged from trust by reason
of itsMCJlJnient Jutho. pnpimon -
We think these words describe
or words of limitation , and do not
constitute the grantee an agent ol
the United States to select another
corporation , which has porforinoc
similar work , and make it the beno
ficitny of the grant ; nor do they con'
stituco the grantee an agent to bestow
a gratuity. It I'M further claimed' by
the Southern Pacific that sections
notably section 4 , authorizing
consolidation , gives the authority
needed for the transfer. No facto
have been laid before us which show
any consolidation whereby the Texas
& Pacific IIHS absorbed the Southerr
Pacific. The prcCiES would ooom to
Imvo been reversed Consolidations
contemplated by oectiona 4 , 5 and
were these whereby other companies
wore to become- part and parcel of the
Texas & Pacific. If the Southern Pa
cific had become a part and parcel ol
, ho Texas & Pacific it would not be a
claimant here. It in further urg
ed on behalf of the Southern Pacific ,
that insomuch the company have done
what the United States oflorod to give
and granted the lands to the Texas &
Pacific if it would do it , equity requires
quires the land grant should bo trans-
erred to this. As to the request for
; ratuity , no objection can bo made
hat would rent on the sound judg-
nent of congress. But this request
a put upon the ground of a claim ,
xiundcd upon equity and good con
science. The ruply seem * simple
"cn rosH would nuvor have been jus
ifiod in oll'urin ; ; lands had it not
leomed the offer necessary to secure
he rond. Now that events have dum-
mstratod its non necessity the reason
or offering it has entirely failed , ;
ind the Southern Pacific was not
nducod by it to build. It
tot at the riqutst of the United
States ncr even tor the bandit of the :
United States. It happened for its
own purposes to build a road the
Jnitod States wanted and prevented s
lie company building it which the
Jnited States had authorized. It is
iillicult to BOO how this state of facts
ays thu United States under any ob-
igation , either in equity or good con-
cienco. These consolidations may bo
ccoptod from the fact that action on
lie part of the United States is nee-
ssary to enable the United States to
estoro this land to the public domain ,
Vhatover legal rights the parties have
an bo ascertained bettor after an act
f forfeiture than before , and none of
liom bo lost , The committee recom-
nonds the passage of the accompany-
ig resolution :
KesolvcJ , Uy the senate and house
f representatives , in congress as *
ombled , as tollows : That all lands
; ranted to the Texas & Pacific rail-
oad company under tlio act of con-
ress entitled "An act to incorporate
tie Texas & Pacific railway company ,
nd to aid in thu construction of ita
oad , and for other purposes , " ap-
irovod March 3 , 1871 , and acts
mendatory thereof or supplemental
lereto , bo , and the same are hereby ,
eclared forfeited and that the whole
of said lands bo restored to the pub
lie domain and made subject to sal
and settlement under existing laws o

Ho had never boon over the routes

The proceeding dragged ro slowly

as iiiucli his' property as a letter from
Walsh would have been. Prosecution
objected "to the letter because the mat

in Walsh's direct examination , and
long discussion ensued. In the dis

Morrick "Well , note your Vixcap

The court said ho had not yet pass

the court.
An angry discussion followed between -
tweon counsel , which was only
brought to an end by the court in

admissiballity of Me Veagh's testimony
and it was finally rejected.
