lived a useful life in the broadest
sense of the term. He was always
successful and his unstinted zeal
and the ability and energy which
he brought to his every under-
taking made him a man to be ad-
mired and respected. He was a
business man of the broad-
guaged, liberal type who stood
.squarely for his friends and his
sincerest convictions, a sterling
character in public life, and it is
to be regretted that he was not
permitted to round out more
years of usefulness.
BEMIDJI'S schools are a problem
at present and have been for the
past five years. The school board
has builded a number of additions
to the city schools and cramped
conditions are still reported.
However, there is one good thing
.about it all. I demonstrates
very conclusively the rapid
growth of the city and removes
it far and effectually from the list
of towns that are known in the
parlance of the thoroughfare as

into the hands of the Russians.
I is a small wonder that the
almond-eyed Oriental nation has
the sympathy of the American
people when sentiment like this
prevails. There is something
American about this, a-fight-to-
the-finish, sink-or-swim tone that
will bear a great deal of admira-
tion and is heartily deserving of

halcyon days of the Red River

MARCUS A. HANNA.
The passing of Senator Marcus
A Hanna at Washington yester-
day removes from public life one
of the strongest and most force-
iul of latter day Americans.
Outside the presidential chair
few men have attracted wider
public attention during the past
ten years than did Senator
Hanna. Fo that length of time
he has been a conspicious figure
in the politics of the country and
he esteem in which he was held
by the liberal and conservative
public at large, is best attested
by the universal expressions of
regret that attend the announce-
ment of his death. Senator Hanna
wives have left them during the
past five years, have formed a

Owing to the illness of Fred
Mershon, one of the members of
the Warner Comedy company,
there was no performance at the
City Opera house last night. Mr
Mershon's indisposition is quite
serious and Dr. Henderson, who
is attending him states that he
will be unable to resume until
Friday night at least. There will
be no performance tonight or bo
morrow night but the engage
ment will be resumed Friday
night, Mr. Mershon's condition
permitting. There will be a Sat
urday afternoon matinee and the
company's engagement will con
clude Saturday night. Th in
ability of the company to car ry
out its full engagement will be
generally regretted. It Monday
nights performance gavepromise
of a very enjoyable week for
local theatre goers and Mr. Mer
shon's early and complete re
covery is generally hoped for.

The Lesson of the Past
For eight years we have been
telling of the wonderful future of
Bemidji. Man have been unbeliev

times over. Bemidji will one day
be a great city, and townsite lots,
now to be had cheap, will be worth
big money. Bu now.
