has been Instructed to go to Colralne
and arrest Teddy Roosevelt : Jr, for
hunting in Minnesota without the 11
cense required by law of a foreign resi
dent. It is all the result of Captain Green'
way of Duluth, formerly In command
of the "rough riders" Inviting Teddy Jr.
to take a hunting trip on his private
Property near Colralne. The game and
sh commission at the capital say the
Invitation wss accepted and that the
two are already on the hunting ground.
The matter was called to the attention
of 'Samuel F. Fullerton,, superintendent
of fish hatcheries. Fullerton called him
up on the long distance telephone and
explained matters. The law requires
non-resident licenses to ' be taken out
with the commlaalon through Its offi
cers at the capital.
Not only was no license issued for
young Roosevelt, but there was not
even an application on nana.
The law muat be enforced against a
president's son as well as .against any
other offender, was the ruling of Mr.
Avery, the executive agent, and he at
