HE Pioneer contains today
communications presenting two
different aspics of the proposi
tion to put an end "to -certain well
.vaown conditions in the city.
The columns of the Pioneer are
open at all times to communica
tions discussing the welfare and
the interests of Bemidji and Bel
trami county providing such
communications are made by
responsible citizens and it mat
ters nothing whether the opinions
advanced are those of the Pio
neer- or not. A newspaper
should be a public forum of
thought as well and it is the aim
of the Pioneer to stand for free
dom of speech on all public mat
ters as does every other
reputable newspaper in the lan'l.
Mr. Editor:I am pleased to
see that some of the good citizens
of Bemidji are beginning to
awaken to a realization of their
responsibility as to the present
moral condition of our city.
Travel where you may through
out the country from New York
to Winnipeg, Manitoba, and tell
the people you are from Bemidji
and the answer is "What, can
you live in that shadow of the
twentieth century?" Sad,
that it is, that such an opinion
has gone out over the country.
It is high time for us to try
and redeem ourselves, high time
for us to pass out of our babyhood
and become the city which nature
intended we should.
Bemidji is destined to become
one the finest cities ia the
northwest providing the honest
citizens stand for purity and
truth. The present condition of
things shall continue just as long
as the people slumber and sleep
and as they sleep the moral can
cer-planters of the twentieth cen
tury wi'l destroy the purity and
virtue of our young.
Men of money and enterprise
will not come here so long as the
gambling den and houses of pros
titution rule our city.
Upon the right disposition of
_this_ important subject depends
the future peace and prosperity
of our city. Let every man and
woman who cares for the culture
and pure training of the youth
attend the mass meeting in the
city hall tomorrow niglm Let
us show to our honorable mayor
and city council that we are
ready to stand by them in an
effort to improve the present con
dition of things.
__To the Editor:Believing that
the columns of your paper are
open to a discussion of both sides
of the "closing up" proposition,
I take this liberty to advance my
Concecding that the moral
phase of the question is nut open
to discussion, are we not yet
bound to consider one or two
things before "putting on the
screws?" In the first j^ace, the
places and persons directly ef
fected by the movement have
maintained this village from the
time it cme into being.
The fines from gambling, etc.,
and licenses collected in the vil
lage have absolutely paid the run
liing expenses. The men who
have paid this expense have just
/experienced the hardest winter
they have ever seen.

lodge last evening after the work

first function given by the lodge
and it was duly appreciated by a
large attendance. Dancing was
indulged in and excellent music
furnished by the mandolin
orchestra made it doubly enjoy
able. Refreshments were served
and the evening was one that the

The card party given at Red
Men's hall last night by the Mes^
dames Mayer and Thome for the
ladies of St. Phillip's Catholic
church was a very enjoyable
event. Fifteen tables were
played and about eighty -guests
were present. Mrs. Chamber
lain contributed several very
nicely rendered musical numbers
to the evening's entertainment
and the young people present
entertained with music and reci
tations. The event was thor
oughly enjoyable to all in attend
The property owners are at
this time in no position to stand
a sudden raise in taxation, which
will necessarily follow the choj
ping off a big revenue.
Last but not least is it not ap
parent that the present move,
while it is being prosecuted by
moral persons influenced by
most sincere motives, is yet fos
tered by men who have no no
tion but one purely political who
are sacrificing the property own
ers and business men of the com
munity to satisfy some petty
political ambition of their own.
Bear in mind that a closing up
of Bemidji at this time of the
year, just before the breaking up
of the logging seasdn, means that
a large amount tif money will
find its dumping ground else
and that this effects
directly or indirectlv every busi
ness man and property owner
of this town.
