Within Limits of
Supreme Court to Decide' on Validity
of Regulations Prescribed by
WASHINGTON. April ll.-An unusual
question of law, arising out of the graxlng
of cattle within the limit of Tosemite Na
tional park wa argued today in the su
preme court of the United State.
In 1M6 J. B. Curtin was the owner of a
large tract within the limits of the park.
At that time Major P. C. Benson was su
perintendent of the wark. .Major Benson
forcibly prevented Curtin from using the
public tollroad leading to his lands snd
from using the lands to grate cattle until
Curtm bad complied - with regulations of
the Interior department requiring him to
fence in his lands.
Curtin cam to th supreme court to
srgu that Ih reditaUosis r tre Invalid on
the ground tbst tho secreCary of the In
terior had no right to enforce regulations
impairing or restricting the right of per
son owning patented lands within the
Yoeemlte National park.
The Department of Justice defenda the
-egulationa as necessary to prevent the
reservation from being overrun by herds of
cattle. It claims that Curtin's cattle have
been straying over the park for years.
The argument Is presented that, unlike an
individual, the federal government la not
required to look to the state to punish
trespassers on its property, but may inflict
punishment for such infringement itself.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, April ll.-(Speclal Tele
gram.) Re verberatlona of th Saturday-
night dinner of the League of Republican
clubs are being beard on all sides today
with particular reference to Attorney Gen
eral Wlckersham's speech at Chicago and
President Taft'a speech In thia city, one
being almost the antithesis of the other.
One. according to press reports, preached
the disciplining of the insurgent, the other
saw no insurgency, bat a clear case of dif
ference of opinion between men who are
republicans at heart, but look at republi
canism from different points of view.
President Taft's speech of ., Saturday
night Is regarded as one of the most tsctful
and yet most comprehensive speeches he
has made sines the passage of the Payne
Aldrlch bill and Insurgents so-called, who
were present at the dinner of the league,
were today voicing their praise of the
president and the manner In which he met,
not only the' Indiana situation, but con
ditions generally In the middle west, and
he made friends by his utterance that the
republican party never reads men out of
th psrty. but keeps them within the party
If possible. If men are read out of the
party they read themselves out of It by
their own actions and not by actions of the
.orrl Speaks at I'tlra.
Appropos of Mr. Wlckersham's speech at !
th Hamilton club banquet last Saturday
niirht. Congressman Norils will deliver an
address to the Oneida county. New York,
Republican league tomorrow night at Utica,
the home of Vice President Sherman. Mr.
Norris will talk progressive republicanism
and It is expected that he will give some
kind of an answer to Attorney General
Wlckersham's speech in Chicago. Vice
President Sherman, who is at the head of
the regular organisation of Onleda county,
will have a banquet next week In his honar
and from these two closely related ban
quets It is anticipated a good deal of re
publicanism will result.

A conference report on the legislative, ex

tained an agreement to appropriate for
the expenses of automobiles previously pro
vided for Speaker Cannon and Vice Presi

disapproval of these expenditures, and by
a vote of 111 to 1H refused to agree to th
report, sending it back to the conferees for
After this action had been taken, Mr.
Cannon, leaving the chair, went to the re
publican side of the house and there deliv
ered a speech that contained much of sar
casm and Invective. He again defied the
Insurgents and Intimated that they lacked
courage to Join with the solid minority In
deposing him. Encouraging hla republican
colleagues and admonishing the democrats,
he declared he believed a republican ma
jority would be returned In the cermliig elec

which he Insisted that, if given an oppor

away with them during recesses of con

mine liow the Insurgents were voting, as
it was realized their attitude on that
subject would determine the result- It
was not long before the result vss fore
