FEDERAL GRAND JURY AT WORK FORMER RECEIVER INDICTED ON CHARGE OF SUBORNATION OF PERJURY. CLAIMS HE HAS DONE NO WRONG CHARGED WITH INDUCING GIRL TO SWEAR FALSELY TO A CLAIM. Duluth, May 20. Several indict ments in connection with alleged land frauds in the Duluth land office dis trict have beeen returned by the fed eral grand jury. The indictments are the result of investigations made by special land agents into charges that timber and stone claims we re filed by a large number of persons in pursu ance of contracts which lumber firmn instead of for tbe sole benefit of the applicants. One of those indicted is Charles P. Maginnis, the well known attorney and a former receiver of the Duluth land office. He is charged with sub orning A.nnie Stensland to commit perjury. Several months ago Miss Stensland entered certain lands in 5-64-14 under the stone and timber law. According to the laws of the land office it was necessary for her to take oath that she had not Directly or Indirectly made any agreement with any persons by which the title to the land should inude in whole or in part, to any per son except herself, and that tbe land was paid for with her own money and was for her own benefit entirely. An abstract of the title to the land shows that it was deeded to George C. Stone of this city shortly after the patent was granted. It is claimed in the indictment that Maginnis suborned Miss Stensland to enter tbe above mentioned land under the stone and timber act for the benefit of persons other than herself, and to swear false ly as to the manner in which slje had secured the money to pay for it and as to the ultimate disposal of the title and the ownership of the land. Maginnis, when asked if he cared to say anything about the case, said: "Nothing, except that there is nothing in any of my dealings before the land office to be regretted or ashamed of. I have done no wrong there and never will." REJECT BOND ISSUE. Blue Earth Feels That One Well Is Enough for the City. Blue Earth, Minn., May 20.
