Waiting for His

Claims Reported to

imfiings will' l a sent to tW claimants in
due course. r
The contents of-tha report have not been
made public, but the situation may be
summarized as follows:'.
So far as known, none of the claims' In
the various Alaskan coal fields has been
found valid. In the Tananla field all the
locations have been cancelled, because no
application for patent wns made. In the
Cape Llsburne field, where a bluff of coal
overhangs the shore of the Arctic ocean,
all but two of the locations have been
The remaining 400 entries are now under
investigation, which is progressing as
rapidly as circumstances will rermlt. This
condition of affairs, land office officials
say, la a sufficient reply -to the charge
that the government Is delaying the open
ing of the Alaskan coal claims.
In a number of the coal I claim groups
remaining to be investigated the claimants
have declined to be Interviewed by special
agents of the general land office, and, also,
according to these officials, have refused
to furnish any Information concerning
their entries. The work of investigation.
It Is said, has been greatly delayed by
these refusals of Information.
In the Indictments returned by federal
grand Juries at Detroit, Chicago, Spokane
and Tacoma against the promoters of
various Alaska coal groups charges are
made that large groups of coal claims In
Alaska are controlled by a few persons
and that Individual locators have no Inter
est whatever In the claims.
It Is alleged In the Indictments that most
of the claimants are "dummies," whose
names were UBed to secure title to valuable
coal lands to enable the promoters to
speculate In the public domain.
