Washington.—A report chargjng
icrlous irregularities In connection
with the Sinclair and Doheny oil
leases haB been approved by the
Senate oil committee as a sequel to
Its long and colorful Investigation.
The Senate ltaidf probably will be
asked to vote Its approval at’once.
Prepared by Senator Walsh of
Montana, the committee prosecutor,
the report held that the leases were
"wasteful” and had been negotiated
secretly In disregard of the statutes
and on the basis of a presidential
order Illegally Issued; that all of
those concerned In the payment of
$100,000 by E. L. Doheny to Albert
B. Fait were "reprehensible," but
that no proof had been found either
of an "oil conspiracy” at the Chica-
go Republican convention of 1020 or
speculation by public officials in Sin-
clair anil Doheny oil stock.
Before the committee gave Its ap-
proval It struck out the Montana
Senator's only recommendation for
legislation and substituted a decla-
ration that final judgment as to
what new statutes are necessary
should lw reserved until the courts
have construed the present laws in
the oil lease litigation which now
is pending Senator Walsh's draft
of the report would have suggested
that competitive bids be required
hereafter for oil leases; that such
leases be made only for protection
against drainage; that approval by
the Comptroller General would be
necessary to make them effective,
and thnt hereafter g no Government
oil could be "exchanged" for tank-

dence taken since last October 1s

thq most engrossing chapters of the
testimony. Including that given by
the long succession of witnesses

ward 13. McLain, arc passed over

Flagrant disregard of the law In
negotiation of the Sinclair and
Doheny oil leases wan charged in
The executive order by which
President Harding ( transferred the
oil reserves from the Navy to the
Interior Department was held In the
report to have beer. Illegal.
The manner In which the leases
were negotiated secretly by former
Secretary Fall was described as In
disregard of the statutes.
The leases themselves were (de-
clared "Indefensibly wasteful” and
"based on a policy which Congress
alone had authority to determine."
