TO APPEAL
. LAND CASE
President of Soldier Settle
ment Board Asks Day
In Court.
Santa Fe X. 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.
