Governor Had Not Sufficient Time
to Investigate—Injunction Shah
Stand During Continuance
GUTHRIK: Continuance lu the case
of the state against the Prairie Oil
& Gas company was granted by Dis-
trict .Judge A. H. Huston until July
27, when the pnrtien, under the »&rfo-
ment, will appear for trial.
Attorney General West, who recent-
ly secured a temporary injunction
against the Prairie company restrain-
ing further Construction on the pipe
line after it had traversed Washing-
ton county from Caney, Kansas, ap-
peared for the state. George I. Ram-
sey, of Muskogee, and J. H. Burford,
of this city, represented the Prairie,
while O. T. Smith, law clerk In the
governor's office, appeared for Acting
Mr. West protested against Mr.
Smith's plea that the case should be
continued on the ground that Gover-
nor Haskell has not had sufficient
time to make an Investigation of the
matter and rather Ironically suggest-
ed that the governor had previously
declared his acquaintance with the
The importance of the agreement
between the Prairie and Mr, West re-
sulting in the continuance is that the
case shall remain status quo, that is,
the Injunction shall stand, the Prairie
shall not seek a writ of prohibition
or seek to have the case transferred
from Logan county.
This last point was considered of
special import by the attorney gener-
al and he expresed himself as being
pleased with the agreement.
Kvidnce of the intense interest ta-
ken by the small oil producers was
the presence of Attorney J. J. Shea,
of Bartlesville, who represented a
number of well kuown independent
The petition charges the company
with already having warranted the
forfeiture of its corporate rights in
Oklahoma and demands that it be
forced to live up to its obligations In
the transportation of oil and that it
be MujutueJ from "the unlawful own-
ing, operating and producing of oil
along its said pipe lines and trans-
porting same over its said pipe ‘lines,
and that it be required to dispose of
said oil wells, oil lands, interests in

and regulations as the court may pre-

sions of the constitution enlarged
upon by subsequent laws. One pro-
vides that no public service corpora-
tion shall own any land except such
as is necessary for the conduct of its
business as a public service corpora-
tion. The other provision prohibits
public service corporations from con-
ducting a business that brings it in
direct competition with a like busi-
