The government entcrod n pro test to the granting of patent and charged that the land was non-miner al in character; that the requisite im provements had not been made; and, that title to the land was sought for power purposes. The evidece showed that the power plant situated on the property had been used to furnish light and power for the people of Valdez and the ad jacent country. According to the decision the local land offlco holds that a sufficient dis covery has not been made on either one of the three claims sought to be patonted; that not a sufficient amount of work had been performed on the placers to obtain patent; but, that enough improvements had boen mado on the lodo claim. The application sow therefore rejected. The power site In question has been In litigation for years and tho decis ion of the present hearing Is a con siderable interest to the people of Val dez. A suit for possession of the samo tracts of land was up in the dis trict court at Valdez late last year be tween the Alaska Water, Light and Power Co. and Mrs. lies. Tho court held at that time that Mrs. lies had no title to either of the claims. In all probability tho case will bo appealed to the commissioner of the general land office.
