The government asserted that the rail road promoters caused stenographers and other employes to apply for coal lands with the purpose of turning the en tire group over to Frost. The verdict, while a vindication of the business methods of the defendants, does not open the way for tho completion of the railroad, as tho coal lands still are withdrawn from entry and will remain so until released by tho Department of the Interior. The verdict was given nt 2 o'clock this afternoon. Judge Kcncsaw M. Landls, after hearing tho verdict, demanded that a copy of It be handed him. The court was silent, while he examined the paper.
