it Is to be developed along the line of prac

WASHINGTON, Aug. tl. Senator Robert
M. La Follette tn a speech came out openly
In favor of government ownership of the
railroad ox Alaaki and of governmental
control of ths natural resources of that
rich territory. In the course of his re
marks hs offered a bill which be Intro
duced four years ago, providing for the
leasing of all mineral rights In the United
States, although the measure was intended
to be applicable more especially to Alaska.
"Tha sensible and practical thing to do,"
hs said. "Is to create a Board of Public
Works for Alaska to be appointed by Che
president . and confirmed by the senate,
slmnar to ths Isthmian Coal commission.
This Board of Public Works sboald then
undertake not merely to build a railroad
from Controller bay to the coal fields, but
It should acquire all of ths railroads in
Alaska, and settle at once tbe policy of

"It should similarly provide for the de

Justifying bis contention that the gov

Mr. La Follette Insisted that congress, in

Horse Thief Chased
Three Hundred Miles
Makes His Escape
Fosae Followa Han Who Stole Horse
and Buggy in Butte County, S. D.,
Four Daya and Nights.
SIOUX FALLS, a D.. Aug. 21 (Special.)
Sheriff Craven and a posse from Butte
county have returned to their homes after
a chase of 300 miles after a horsethlef, who.
notwithstanding the persistency of the of
ficers, succeeded In making his escape after
one of the most thrilling pursuits and man
hunts In the recent history of the north
western portion of the state.
For four days and nights the sheriff and
members of his posse were on the trail of
the fugitive, who was unusually shrewd and
by a succession of tricks succeeded in
throwing the officers off his direct trail.
Ths thief is wanted for the theft of a
horse and buggy from a rancher named
Hants living in Butta county. In his flight
the fugitive visited several ranches, but
left from one to three days ahead of his
pursuers. At one ranch he even was so
bold as to negotiate for the purchase of the
ranch, stating he would be back In a few
days and close negotistlons. Tbs officers
found where he had camped In a canyon
near ths frontier town of Ludlow, and from
which point he wslked to town and pur
chased some supplies.
All along ths route traveled the fugitive
hsd been Inquiring the road to Haley. N.
D.. and after being informed as to the
direction to Haley, and then would double
back on his trail and cut across the country
snd go tn an opposite direction. The sheriff
and his posse followed him to a point
eighteen miles south of Bowman and there
lost all trace of the fugitive, who may have
headed westward into Wyoming or north
westward Into Montana.
Peace officers over a wide extent of
country tn southwestern North Dakota,
northeastern Wyoming and southeastern
Montana hava been notified to keep a
watch for him, snd tho authorities of
Butte county yet are hopeful he may be
run down and captured.
