New York. Aug. 10. Theodore
Roosevelt, in an article in the current
number of the Outlook entitled "Alas
ka Again." discusses some general
phases cf Alufckan development and
takes issue with the newspaper state
ments that during the Roosevelt ad
ministration tne mine course was pur
sued e irf beirg puisued later in con
nection with the Controller Bay affair.
The colonel says the government it
self must control the development of
Alaska and adopt as its guiding princi
ple the idea of shaping that develop
ment in the interest primarily of the
people as a whole, syndicates otner
developing agencies, thus receiving a
benefit only as an incident to conferr
ing with it.
Roosevelt begins in reference to an
article in the New York Tribune, of
July 2. frtm a Washington correspond
ent, justifying withdrawal of the Con
troller Kay lands from, the forest re
serves on the ground that similar
action in eliminating certain areas of
the Eyak and Valilez arm from the
f rest reserves was taken bv Garfield
and 1'ir.chot. This he denied and de
clared that while he acted upon some
recommendations from Fine-hot and
Garfield he was entirely coinizant of
the principles in accordance with this
At the time of this elimination.
Roosevelt declares, no suggestion was
made to him nor was tntre any public
knowledge that there was the slightest
danger of the Guggenheim syndicate
or any other syndicate obtaining con
trol in Alafcka. as developments of the
past three veara have shown.
Concluding. Roosevelt declared he
did not believe in the policy of state
owned railroaos. as a gcreral thing,
but he is quite willing to see the
Panama railroad owned and run by the
government, as it actually is, and in
the same way. if further difficulty oc
curs in connection with what has been
known as the Controller Bay railroad
he felt it would be a good thing for the
Uniteu Statea to build and oterate
this short line railway, with terminals
which would connect the bay with
the Alaskan coal fields. Then, with
these coal fields given over to private
developers on the lease and hold
system as the most simple system
possible, on such terms as to guarantee
ample profit to those engaged in the
work of development, all trouble in
connection with the Aluska coal fields
, would vanish.
AT WORK IN SALEM
Salem. Aug. 14 -Althoich the pro
prietor of the Hansen Sash and Poor
Factory In S lein denied having em
plovo I a parole I prisoner to work in
fin establishment. VV. Miller, t e sec
retary of a lo-ul union, has staled that
anenolo.'ii of the faeto'v toi l him

and that there vva.i m leh com nent on
the report. Why the fuetorvman deni
el having cmolove I a p irolcd prisoner
is not known bv his employers, o'ther
ttian it is possible he could have hired
him without knowiiig that he was a
prisoner o i I) iroio.
The proprietor of the Club Stables

When approached yesterday. Alec

horse-sP'aling from Lake county, and
who is now driving a gravel waeon

denied having employed convict labor.
Cedarville. Aug. 16. At a meeting
held here a few days ago and which
was intended to be kept from public
notice for the present, a movement was
launched for the building of a railroad
the whole length of Surprise Valley
and to Geiirlach. Nev.. to connect with
j tne Western Pacific Railway at tnat
ire proposition uiui i uriiiv nuiu
cated is the raisina of $400,000 in Sur
prise Vallev in stock subscriptions.
Bonds would be issued for u like
amount and other additional cupital
would be provided from another sub
stantial source to make up the require I
amount to build the line. 'J'ne project
would be one of comparatively small
cost. In Surprise Valley, where most
of the land is improved and cultivated,
free rights of way probably could not
be sucured. but in the Nevada portion
of the route it is believed practically
the whole right of way could bo secur
ed free, as there is little improved ter
ritory, and most of it is vacant land.
The land under private ownership
would be so greatlv benefited that the
owners would no duubt be glud to give
free rights across it.
It is understood no heavy work
would be required to build the road,
and it would have a good business field
in a few years. It would run from
Fort Bid well south through Lake City,
Cedarville and Eagleville, and then
across the desert to Gerlach. This
desert country has more or less stock
that would furnish business, and some
of the lund is being developed for

for any member of a train crew to tag

RED FROM GREFN?
Can a dog tell green from red when
displayed cn a switch alongside, thu
track of a railroad, ami can it learn
the significance and importance of thu
green and red signals a applied to
railroading? II. W. Sheridan, super
intendent of the Sacramento division
of the Southern Pacific Company, says
that it can. and Sheridan has a mass of
evidence to prove his assertion.
Sheridan Bccurcd hi evidence re
cently while conducting an efficiency
test about 100 miles north of Sacra
mento, California. With several assist
ants he changed the light on one of the
switches from green to red. then wait
ed to see if the crew of the next train
would observe the wrong light and stop
the train before it reached the switch.
The doe began to bark as soon as
the red light was shown in place of the
green. It ran around tho aiffnul for
several minutes and then to the quar
ters of the section foreman, a half
mile awav. Shortly after the foreman
appeared with a lantern and shot gun.
led by the dog. and Sheridan and his
assistants had a difficult time in ex
plaining the red light to the KHtisfac
tion of both dog and its masters.
These efficiency tests are conducted
throughout the year fur the purpose
of keeping train and enginemen on the
alert. After crew ha run over tho
same line duy after day without mis
hap, thev. in common with other mor
tals, are likely to become careless and
tall to observe a danger signal at a
critical moment. Such an overnight
is fraught with danger that makes one
shudder to think of it -a hundred lives
might be snuffed out in the twinkle of
an eve should a train or enginerrian fail
to observe a signal. To guard against
such a contingency the Southern
Pacific Company has 21 efficiency tests,
ranging from the changing of the color
of signul lights, and extinguishing
lights entirely to placing fuses and
torpedoes on the track. Failure to ob
serve any of these signals means severe
discipline for the offender. Last year
the Southern Pacific made 702ti of
these tests and in only 41 oases did the
crew fail to observe the signal, giving
a percertage of 09.42 per cent perfect.
The dog that caused Sheridan'a tem
porary discomfiture, knows the signi
ficance of every light, according to the
section foreman owning it. and walks
a certain stretch of track with its
master. It is possible that the animal
could be aent out along the track alone
and would be competent to report a
light out altogether, or at least the
wrong one burning.
