But one ollii'c. that of I'oiiiiiiissioner of Finance, is to lie tilled and "there are two avowed candidates and one receptive one, so far as iiublicly known. Frank E. Smith, whose term as financial manager of the city corporation, expires in Aiiril, will be a candidatjc to succoea liimself and ho •will be opposed by at l^ast one candidate and po.ssibly otljers. The avowed opponent is Smith .lacHson. Mr. Jackson has been a resident of lola about three years and was .-'n em­ ploye of the Kansas U-Kislature at lis last session. He is enpased in the loan business at present. Frank K. Smith. as everybody knows, i.s a member of the insurance firm of Smith & Travis, and is one of the old residents of ihe city. He Is serving his first term In a municipal office. Genrpe Freeman, an emp'oy^ "f the lola Portland Cement foir.pany, is a. receptive candidate. He has tlie matter of becoming a candidate under consideration, his friends say. and •will make an announcement in due time if he concludes to make the race. Mr. Freeman born in lola and is widely and fa\oraldy known, having taimht In the city schools for pevernl year.s.

However, any person who may entertain a notion of getting in on the county contest and whose name may not appear in this story need not fel aggrieved. The only purpose of the story Is to suggest that "the water Is fine" and if any one Is thinking of takin ga swim he is cordially Itivited to "come on in." MOTHER FEARS FOR YOUNG Kuplllvp May Have Crawled Into a Hole and Frozen, She Saj.x. County Attorney James S. Taylor received a pathetic letter- from Mrs. Uydia Young, of Olathc. Kas., this afternoon. She Is the mother of Geo. Young, the young man who escaped from the county jail a week ago. "Have .vou learned anything of the whereabouts of my son George Young," Mrs. Young writes imploringly, "i h<>ar he broke jail and got out. We are all afraid that be has crawi'-d into some place and froze to death." Mr. Taylor replii^d that he r»'pretted very much that George had deserted the warm meals and the warm beds which were providc^l for him here ai'd expressed the opinion that Instead of freezing to death, the fugitive wati l^robably kcei)ing warm by keeping on thv move.

Washington Feb. 2.—President Taft :oiiay sent to Congress a .special ines- saue on the work of the Interior I>e- partnienl and other matters. The greater part of the message is given to a discussion of the situation in Alaska, concerning which the I'rcsi- dent said: "Tliere arc now in .Alaska only two well-known high-grade coal fields of large extent—the Bering River coal field and the .Matanuska coal field. Tl:e Bering River coal tield whib> It has varying qualities of coal from the bituminous to the anthracite Is very much lessened In value and uscful- nes.s by the grinding effect to which in geological ages past the coal measures have been subjected, so that the coal does not He or can not be mined in large lumps. It must be taken out in almost a powdered condition. The same, difficulty does not appear to the same extent in the Matanuska coal fields. The Bering River coal fields are only 2."> miles from the coast. They are within easy distance of an existing railroad built by tlie Morgan-tJug genhcim interests, and may also be re.ichc d through Contro'ler Bay by tlie -construction of other and competing railroads. Controller Bay is not a good harbor, but could probably be made prac- tic-al with the expenditure of consid- c-rahlc money. The rnlIroa/1 of the .Mi)rg;!n-Gii;-'genheiin Interests, running frfiui Cordova, cciuld be made a '•ntil carrylnK road for the Bering Itfver fields-by the construction of a Idanc'i to those fields not exceeding Ml c: i:n miles. It Is practicable, and If tlic c-oal measures were lo be opened up. douhllcfi! I lie branch woiibl he liiiilt. In the jiresent condition oi' 'liints. t'liere Is no ii.otivc to build il-.'- rciad. because there i< no title or op, "rttinlty lo open and mine the c-cal The Matanuska coal fields are a li'nuer distance" from the coast. They are from l.">ii to 2iio miles from the 'mrhor of ,'^ewnrd. on Resurrection i'av. Tiiis is one of the finest l;ar- :'>rs in the world, and a reserva.ion 'as lien made 'here for the u.«e of : e Navy of 'lie Cr.ite:! States.

The .Alaska Central road ha.^ been I onstysi'ted sonie 71 miie.s of ;.Ve dis- 'aiice frcm Seward north to the Ma­ tanuska coal fields, but tlio conslruc- •ir.n beyond tills iias been iliscouraixid. first, by the fact that there has been no iioli.-y adopted of ojicnlng up the coal lands upon which investors could depend, and second, because there .-•eemed to be a lack of financial hacking of tho'-e engaged in the enter- iirise. The Secretary of the Interior has ascertijined that the I>ond!iolders who are the real owners of the road are willing to sell to the Government, and h§ recommends the purchase of 'i:' e.<isting road, sui-h reconstriiciion •cs riiicy be necessary, its continuance to thf; .Matanuska coal fields, and i!;en?e into the valleys of the Yukon and Tlic Tanana.

I am not in favor of Government owni rsh\,i where the same certainty .-!,Td effj-jenc-y of service can be had '•'v private enterprise, but I think the ccmditlons p-c^sentcd in Alaska are of siu-ii a character as to warrant the - Governmem, for the purpose of en' ?ouraging the development of that vast and remaikalile terrltor.v. to build .inel own a tiunk line railroad, which \'. can lease on terms which may he varied and changed to meet tlie growing prosperity and development of the Territory. There was a time, of course, when Alaska was regarded as so far re- moveel Into the Arctic Ocean ny- lo ihake any development of it practh-al- ly impossible, hut for years the facts 'lave been known to those w lio have lieen responsible for its government and every one who has given the subject the slightest consideration lia.s been aware of the wondiTful jiossl- hi'lties In Its growth and developiui-nt If only capital were Invested there and a good government put over It. 1 think the Cnited States owes It, therefore, to .Alaska, and to the people who have gone there, to lake an exception step and to build a railroad that shall open the treasures of Alaska to the Pacific and lo the people w:u) live along that ocean on our west ' em .cast. The construction of a railroad and ownership of the fee do not necessitate Government operation. Pursuant however, to the recommendation of the Secretary of the Interior I sugges: to Congress the wl.s- dom cf providing' that the President :nny appoint a coinii ^ss 'on of competent persons Inc'uding two Army engineers.'^ to examine and report upon the avaiiablf routes tot a itUlrosi}.
