The boy's mother is Mrs. Emma Frtn ser, of 38 Dearborn street. South Thicago.

M-, Sept. 26 Edward Everett Young, president of the sol diers' settlement board, will ask for his day in the federal court, as he was out of town when federal judge Colin Neblett. on petition of United States attorney Summers Burkhart granted an injunction against the board, the state treasurer and other officials, restraining them from pay ing out money derived from federal grant lands for the expenses of the board. Mr. Toung was in Taos coun ty at he time and no service was had upon him, and he therefore maintains that he still has a hearing coming. Together with attorney general Askren he has formulated a new re ply to the contention of the United States, pointing out that the expense bills Incurred in trips to Salt Lake City and St. Louis were definitely and specifically for the reclamation of the lands granted the state by con gress and therefore a legitimate ex pense to be charged against the In come from such lands, and that even if the court should not consider it such a legitimate expense, it would not militate against the expenditure of the 330,000 appropriated by the state from land funds for the sol diers' settlement board, whose main function is to seek means to improve, 1 irrigate and Increase materially, the vaiue or ine tanas grantea tne state by the federal government. enotua tne aecision oe still adverse and the injunction be made perma nent by judge .Neblett, then an appeal will be taken by the state to the cir cuit court of appeals and if necessary the case will be taken to the United States supreme court for a final de cision on the clear-cut Issues presented.
