10 GIVE UP PLUNDER
Ilarrlman Coal Companies Offer
Government Stolen Land.
PROPERTY IS WORTH MILLIONS
Asks Immunity In Return, but Only a
Small Part of Stealings
Is Offered. '
Washington, April 4. It was learned
tonight that tho Ilarrlman corporations,
whoso ramifications extend to coal land
and other vast Interests in tho Fur
West, nro offering to restore to tho gov
ernment properties they huo lioroto
foro claimed as theirs by good and am
ple title. They prefer to do this rather
than bo prosecuted.
Coal laud worth In tho aggregate mil
lions of dollars Is to' bo restored to tho
public domain, us n result of tho recent
nctlvltlot of tho Intorstato Commerce
commission. Tito commission several
months ago investigated tho land frauds
in Wyoming, Colorado nnd Utah. It
was found thai this wliolo section was
honeycombed with corruption and Its
ropoits Indicated thai tho genoral land
ollieo had been olthor hopolcssly Incom
petent or worso In permitting tho rail
road companies and their allied corpo
rations, tho Union Pacific Coal com
pany, tho Utah Fuel company and tho
Cnloiado Fuol k Iron company to sc
curo, by various and dovlous motheds,
control of great areas of tho richest coal
land In tho West.
Tho Union Pnclfio Coal Company Is a
subsidiary corporation of thu Union
Pacific Nallroud company. All tho
stock of tho coal company, except
qualifying shines for directors, Is owned
by tho railroad company. Tho coal
comiMiny secured control of n largo
amount of scrip nnd used it to secure
entry of land, which wits rich in the
finest bituminous coal of tho Wyoming
As it is the con I company Is anxious
to return tho vulunble land to tho gov
ernment and end tho matter. But tho
matter will not ho nllowed to end
thoro. Whilo thoro is no possible do
fenso to tho title undor which this scrip
land has been claimed, tills, though
very valuable, constitutes only n small
part of tho coal laud now held by tho
Union Pncillo railroad, thu Union Pa
cific Conl company, tho Union Fuo)
company and other concerns.
