The seven men are officials of a
company known as the Michigan-Alaska
The contention of the government is
that the defendants conspired to in
duce between 200 and 300 individuals
to become stockholders in the Michigan-Alaska
company by making "frau
dulent and fictitious locations of cer
tain Alaska coal lands." thereby vio
lating the land entry laws of 1910,
which made it Illegal for more than
four persons to form a company for
locating Alaska coal lands and taking
out patents on more than 640 acres.
It Is alleged that the several stock
holders of coal land claimants were
led to believe that they were locating
the lands for their exclusive U3e, "but
in truth and in fact for the use and
benefit of the seven defendants and
the Michigan-Alaska Development com
pany." The Michigan-Alaska Development
company was organized under the
laws of Arizona. W. W. McAlpine is
WHERE LA XD IS.
The coal lands involved are situated
at Juneau, Alaska, and several con
tiguous tracts In the vicinity of Hom
er, upon the westerly end of Kenal
peninsula bordering upon Cook inlet.
The claims are said to have been lo
cated by about 200 Detroit and Michi
gan residents and a hundred other
claimants from New York, Chicago,
San Francisco, Seattle and other
It is declared by the defendants
that strictly Individual entry of the
lands has been made and that the Michigan-Alaska
company was organis
ed as a benefit association for the pur
pose of aiding the stockholders or
claimants to better protect their title
and develop their lands. They deny
stock was to be sold and they insist
the -corporation was not formed for
the exploitation of the coal lands in
the general market.
ARRAY OF ATTORNEYS'.

District Attorney Frank Watson of
Detroit was assisted by B. D. Town
send, assistant to the attorney; A.
Christensen, special government agent
in charge of the case, and Special
Agents F. C- Robb, H. S. Hinrichs and

Son of Jufoh Sk-hafer May Die of
The 9-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs.
Jacob Schafer, who reside on a farm
two miles south cf Port Eyron, is
lying it the point of death as the
result of an injury received several
days ago, when he was playing with
a toy revolver et the home of a
neighbor. The revolver was accidental?-
dis-harp-d and a paper wad
from the cartridge was lodged in the
boy's hand. It was thought at the
time that the injury was merely oa
the surface of the hand, but yester
day blood poisoning and lockjaw de
veloped. There wr.s a consultation
of physicians early this rnorn'ng.
There is little hope for the recovery
of the lad.
Moline city council last night
rejected a plan for the merging of Mo
line and East Moline proposed by a
joint committee representing hots cit
ies. One of the recommendations was
that one of the four commissioners to
be elected in Moline In the spring with
draw and that in his stead a man to
represent East Moline be named. It is
understood that the eight nominees for
commissioner in Moline have agreed
to stand together against any move
ment to separate one of their number
from a job. The plan proposed was
that East Moline continue to retain its
identity after the merger,, but that tht
business of both cities be conducted as
one corporal ion.
