Dale & llierer attorneys for the
Methodist University received (Wed-
nosday a copy of the final decision ot
the Supreme Court written by Jus-
tice Summers Olardy handed down
Tuesday evening in the case of the
Oklahoma 'Methodist University in-
volving the title to the tract of
ground and building in this city now
uRed and occupied by the (Methodist
! This property has been in litiga-
tion for more than two wears the
contention being that the city had
no right to transfer the ground to the
university? because it was claimed
it was readi-ved for park purposes.
There waa and has been no question
of the right of the city to transfer
the building or its other splendid and
expensive improvements on this
ground Speaking of the decision
Judge Blerer said: "la this decision
of the court the (matter is finally set-
tled and the courts hold following
the leadlnt case of Knight v. U. 8.
Land Assn. 1142 XT. S. 161 that when
the govornment through its ' proper
officers within the ecope of their au-
thority makes a grant by patent of
public land as this formerly was that
that grant is. conclusive upon tha
courts except in a direct proceeding
to set it aside and following the case
of Wright v. Morgan 11911 IT. IS. C-5
which Is a direct precedent for this
caBe and "which Is known as the
"Denver case" where government
land waa first granted to the city ot
Denver for a cemetery and the trust
was changed under lAct of Congress
and tho land then granted to the
city of Denver for a cemetery and
the trust was changed under Act ot
Congress and the land then granted
to tho Catholic bishop of the diocese
of Denver for church purposes. The
opinion of Justice Hardy ia a very
a.bU lne and sets out and reviews at
length all of the authorities bearing:
on this case and sustains both propo-
sitionn contended for by the attorn-
eys for the university and conslus-
ively settles the questions involved In
The city of Guthrie as well as the
university owes a debt or gratitude
to the court for its careful and most
able consideration of this question
It is one of the most vital ones at
the present time to the city of Guth-
