I* iP Nv LOOK ALIKE TO IVERSON State Auditor Says Practice of Stealing State Timber Must be Stopped. BIG AND LITTLE THEIVES WILL BE PROSECUTED. Trespassers on State Lands Will Be Treated Without Fear Or Favcm "The practice of unscrupulous individuals in trespassing upon timber lands owned by the state must be stopped," said State Auditor S.

In late years the number of trespass cases re ported to the office of the state auditor has been smaller than heretofore, and as a consequence few prosecutions have been in stituted. Nevertheless, a few have occured and as soon as re ported to the office the offenders have been arrested and dealt with according to law." "They all look alike to me.

LOGGER&IJP AGAINST IT Thin Ice on Lakes and in Swamps Materially Hind ers Operations. SUPERINTENDENT KLINE TELLS OF SERIOUS CONDITION. At Present Rate Only Small Part of Contracts Will Be Com pleted This Winter. Superintendent P. Kline of the Walker & Akeley company is in the city today from Akeley and tells of a very serious condi tion of affairs existing among the loggers in the vicinity of Akeley and Park Rapids, due to the lack of sufficient ice on lakes and swamps to carry loads of any size to the landings. "One company that I know of," said Mr. Kline, "has a contract for cutting and hauling 23,000,000 feet of pine during the present winter, and of this amount 15,000 000 is on skids in the woods and only 3,000,000 feet has been hauled. This leaves a remainder of 20,000,000 feet which must be landed before spring in order to complete the contract, and it is not at all probable that it will be accomplished. The company is operating in the vicinity of Ake ley, and the logg...
