I'. l-ass and the Spool ftlVrr project which acts forth the attitude' of thy defense and es tablishes a basis for Uio re?iuoot that the plaintiff "have nothing by the uctlon begun." 3 The answer allegoa that during the .summer uud fall of 1912. Robert A. Klnzlt, E. P. Kontuady. W. i'. I.*ss and W. P Bradley entorod Into an agreement to search for and If possi ble acquire water powors In Alasku for electro-cheiuical purposes and to share equnlly In the cost and the use of such power; that pursuant to such agreement, they did find the powers at Speel River and posted notices claiming such powers and afterwards applied to the Bepartmeut of Agri culture for a permit, as the powers were on the Forest Reservo. At the same time, it is claimed, they also located a number of min ing claims and millsites. Subsequent ly, Mr. Bradley turned over his inter est In ti e project to the San Francis co Exploration Company and In Jan uary, 1913. .Mr. Kennedy, having ta ken >tltlc to himself in the mining claims. roUlsitos ami water powers, executed, at the request of Bradley, a declaration of trust, declaring that be held all these properties In trust one-fourth for himself, one-fourth for Kinzle, one-fourth for Loss, and one-fourth for the San Francisco Ex ploration Company. Subsequently and In August. 1914. tho permit was issued to Kennedy as trustee hy the Secretary of Agriculture. The de fendants then allege further that the San Francisco Exploration Company, requested Konnedy to make a deed to the Alaskq-Juneau for the former's I one-fourth Interest In tho water pow ; ers and other properties, whjch Ken ; nedy did. and that afterwanls. the Alaska-Juneau fefused to contribute j Its share to the development neces sary. It Is charged thu- to comply j with the rules of the Department in order to procure a permit and inain j tain rights under It. surveys had to be made of the various dam-sites, ! reservoir sites, - conduits, power sta 1 tlon sites and other ground needed on the reservation, and that certain amount of development work had to be done from time to time and an an naul rental paid tho government. This the plaintiff refused to do according to the allegations In the answer, and that aftor the first of April. 1914. the plaintiff refused to contribute in any way to the expenses necessary for securing pornUt or for maintain ing the rights of permits thereunder, and that the Alaska-Juneau aban doned the original intent of using the power for electro-chemical purposes and refused to pay any part of the rental to the government; that there after Tor peace sake, so It Is alleged, the defendants, Kennedy and Lass, who by that time nad taken over Kin zio's interest and held three-fourths Interest In all the properties, made n proposition tq the Alaska-Juneau: to either develop the project Jointly with the Alaska-Juneau according to the original plan: or develop It joint ly and let Ihe Alaska-Juneau take its one-fourth of the power developed and do what tlicy pleased with ft; or the defendants would develop the power at their own expense entirely and give the Alaska-Juneau 35 per cent, of Its one-fourth interest; or else let the Alaska-Juneau develop the entire power at Its own expense and give the latter 55 per cent, of the defendants' three-fourth interest; and In case the Alaska-Juneau would ac cept none of these propositions, then, It it would make th e defendants, I?ass and Kennedy, a "buy or sell" offer, tho defendants bound them selves to accept any such "buy or sell" proposition which the Alaska Juneau might make; but all these , propositions wore rejected. [ The defendants further charge that the Alaska-Junenu refused to I contribute In any respect to the de velopment or maintenance of the properties In question for the purpose and with the Intent-of compelling the defendants to abandon the proper ties or to forfeit them, or to sell them to the plaintiff or its officers at a sacrifice; and that' the refusal of the Alaaka-Juneau to co-operate in any way or to buy or sell waB done for the same- unlawful purpose; that after the first of April, 1914, when the Alaska-Juneau refused to contri bute to the maintenance of these properties, Kennedy and I-ass had ox pended $21,000.00 and on account of the contrary action of .the plaintiff, they were unable to raise the neces sary money for the protection of their ow.a rights for the development of the powers; nnd they failed to pay the rental due the government un der the permit on the first of Jan uary. 1915; that they, therofore. re turned the permit to the Department of Agriculture whero the permit was cancelled last April. A new per tnit. however, for the same powers wlas issued by the Secreatry of Ag riculture to the Spoel River Project, incorporated, snd it Is alleged that the plaintiff has forfeited any right or interest which it ever had in eith er the mining claims or the powers; I that It hnn no interest in the hut j permit Issued... but that, nevertheless, the defendants have offered tor pence sake, and to obviate any delay in the development, to give to tho plaintiff a quarter of all the stock of the cor* i poratlon which now tiolds the permit in consideration of a quit-claim of any moral or equitable rights which the Alaska-Juneau lays claim to. This offer has also been rejected. Clothing and shoo departments opeii evenings; until July 4th. Goldstein's Emporium. ' T-l-St DON'T forgot tho Names OLTS & GILPATRICX.
