Pored 1 Land for It.
DENVER. Colo., May 2. Coat land in
volving 3,400 acres and valued at approxi
mately $1,000,000 was surrendered to tho
United States government today by the
Colorado Fuel and Iron company In con
sideration of dismissal of a suit Involving
E.S00 acres owned by the company. The
land Is located In southern Colorado.
Tho future entry on the land will be
permitted under, the regulations and
prices recently fixed.
The settlement arranged through ne
gotiations between United States District
Attorney H. E. Kelly. Assistant Attorney
General Frederick Maynard, M. D. Mc
Enlry. chief of the field sprvlcc of the
general land office and officials of the
Colorado Fuel and Iron company.
Tbe land, which is located In Las Ani
mas county, originally was taken up as
agricultural land by George W. Benedict
and Ellsha P. Lee. It was filed on under
the law that permits owners of forest
land to return It to the government and
receive In return agricultural land. Sub
sequently tho land was tumid over to
tho fuel company. The government's
complaint against the company was that
tho entrants to the land knn they were
getting valuable coal property.
For four years the company lias fought
the case through tho Interior department,
where It secured favorable decision. Sub
sequently suit was started by the gov
ernment In the federal court to refute
the company's contention that the ruling
of the secretary of the Interior was final.
New evidence was Introduced and todays
settlement resulted from negotiations that
havo been In progress several months.
