Excerpt from In the Circuit Court of Appeals of the United States, Ninth Circuit: United States of America, Plaintiff and Respondent, Vs. Southern Pacific Company, Et Al., Defendants and Appellants, in Equity; Appellants' Brief Upon the Facts Sylvester was a dentist, Packard was the mar shal of Bakersfield, Farnum was a brick maker, and practically all of the other locators of these speculative claims were men without experience in the oil business. (tr. 257, 358-9) A few com petent oil men were also probably carried along by the wave of enthusiasm, but, as a rule, they realized the uncertainties of untried territory and therefore confined their activities close to the main range, where prior development in certain localities had shown the presence of oil in commercial quan tities. W. G. Sylvester testifies that during this excitement a great many competent oil men came into that country but that they did not go into the Elk Hills.
