GET A MOVE ON.
It is high time that Bemidji
got a move on in the matter of en
couraging the establishment of
manufacturing enterprises in
this city. The Pioneer has re
ferred to this subject upon
numerous occasions and we arc
fully persuaded that there are
not two opinions among the busi
ness men of the city in regard to
the immediate necessity of tak
ing steps that will make Bemidji
one of the important manufactur
ing centers of the state.
Nevertheless nothing is done.
Opportunities are allowed to pass
untaken. The Commercial Club
which should inquire into these
matters, investigate the advan
tages of different propositions
and seek out enterprises which
may be induced to locate here,
is apparently a dead one. This
is the entire trouble. When the
Commercial Club was first or
ganized we are informed that
there was great enthusiasm and
expectation was pitched high.
The failure of the club to do any
thing whatever is consequently
depressing in proportion.
Several manufacturing enter
prises are now looking this way
and it is possible to locate a sum
mer Chautauqua in Bemidji and
to do other things greatly needed
but we must first have a commer
cial club that is good for some

Attempt Being Made to Side
track the Candidacy of M.
D. Stonerfor Mayor.
IN THE FIGHTTOTHE FINISH.
The Opposition to Mr. Stoner
Seem to Be Having Trouble
to Find a Candidate.
Since Saturday night the re
port has been industriously cir
culated that M. i). Stoner has
withdrawn his candidacy for
mayor at the spring election,now
two weeks away.
Since the Pioneer announced
the fact some two week's ago that
Mr. Stoner would be a candidate
for mayor a certain few have been
industriously knocking him. For
mouthpieces these certain few
secured the News and Sentinel,
have for two weeks worked
overtime in spreading the terrible
charge that Mr. Stoner owns
some property outside of Be
midji. But most people have
contemplated this crime on Mr.
Stoner's part with a good deal of
equinamity in fact most people
with the possible exception of
the News and the Sentinel own
some property outside of Bemidji
People generally will be pleased
to know that Mr. Stoner is very
much in the race. While there
are a good number of gentlemen
in Bemidji who would make very
acceptable candidates for mayor
it is very generally felt that if
Mr. Stoner is elected the city
will have one of the ablest and
cleanest of them all.
Mr. Stoner assures the Pioneer
that he intends to remain a can
didate until after the votes are
counted. Since his announce
ment was first made he has re
ceived otters of support from all
quarters and if the prevailing
sentiment counts for anything it
will be hard to find a better or a
stronger man to succeed Mayor

The best known and most popular blood purifier
and tonic on the market to-day is S. S. S.
There is hardly a man, woman or child in America who
has not heard of "S. S.S. for tho Mood." It is a standard remedy
a speciGc for all blood troubles and unequalled as a general tonic and
appetizer. S. S. S. is guaranteed purely vegetable, the herbs and roots
of which it is composed are selected for their alterative and tonic prop-
erties, making it the ideal remedy for
all blood and skin diseases, as it not
only purifies, enriches and. invigor
ates the blood, but at the same time
tones up the tirijd nerves and gives
strength and vigor to the entire

Lumber company which he at

Wants Better Rates.
D. W. Hines, of Blackduck, was
in the city this morning on his
way to St. Paul, to confer with
the officials of the GreatNorthern
and Northern Pactic regarding a
joint rate on wood that will enable
shippers in this vicinity to ship
wood to better advantage. Pre
sent rates are nearly prohibitive
according to Mr. Hines. He has
recently engaged in the wood bus
ness at'Blackduck, but he finds
his sales hampered on long ship
ments by the heavy freight rates.
He is quite confident that he will
be able to secure concessions
that will materially releive the
