FOR THE WEAl OF THE CITY.
The nomination of Mayor Lud
ington and the members of the
retiring council at the village
caucus last -evening insures the
elimination of the bitter personal
feeling which has marked the
last few days of the campaign.
The contest now becomes simply
a personal one between Mayor
Ludington and Mr. Stoner both
gentlemen are personally popular
and have hosts of friends, both
have lived long in Bemidji and
have extensive interests here.
The election of either means the
administration of the city with
an eye single to the best i nterests
of the whole people.
This is the point for which the
Pioneer has contended from the
first. Desperate attempts were
made to secure a ticket pledged
to support the private interests
of individual men but after a vain
attempt to get together a ticke
of this kind the attempt was yes
terday totally abandoned and all
the strength heretofore devoted
to pushing private interests was
thrown to Mayor Ludington and
Had not the present adminis
tration refused steadfastly at
first to be again candidates for
reelection there would probably
have been but one ticket in the
field. The business men of Be
midji -demand a ticket whose
members are unpledged to any
faction or individual. The gen
tleman who are now candi
dates for. election, both, the mem
bers of the present administra
tion and others, are representa

questioned integrity and incapa
ble of pledging them salves to pri
"While the candidate which the
Pioneer his supported for mayor
was not nominated at the cau cus
last night every principle for
which this paper has contended
has been carried out. The con
test from this time on becomes a
purely personal one.
HE charge that the Pioneer
has attacked the members of the
present council, assailing their
integrity as men and their record
as officials is supremely ridicu
lous and is made solely for politi
cal purposes. The Pioneer has
never at any time alluded to the
present council in any way other
than complimentary. The article
quoted to sustain the charge con
cerned well known public enter
prises like that of the commercial
dub which have come to naught
for obvious reasons. At the time
it was published the members of
the present council were not can
didates for re-election but were
insisting positively and repeat
edly- that they would under no
circumstances stand for re-elec
Only a smallaudience witnessed
the Warner Comedy Co.'s pro
duction of "Hazel Kirke" last
night. The piece was excellently
rendered and it is to be re-
gretted that the patronage was
not larger. Tonights bill will be
"Doris" a comedy drama in four
acts. It is one of the cleverest
things in the Warner repertoire
should draw a large house.
As to the merit of the Warner
performances there is no ques
tion. They are unquestionably
the best popular priced attraction
which has ever been seen at the
local house and every production
is worthy of and should receive
the most liberal patronage.

murmured to Harum Wiggs
when the young man had con

Harum decided to monopolize

the girl and both escaped to Slab

expected him "any moment.
Won't you come in and wait?"
They sat in the resin-papered
parlor and waited restlessly.
Suddenly a knock on the door

The minister's wife understood
their violent signs of distress.
She ordered them upstairs into a
darkened room, while she went
to the door to face the angry
parent. They heard him enter
the parlor with quick strides
and approach the stairway door.
"Quick! We'll fool him yet,"
cried Harum. "I will lower you
out the window. I'll hide up on

minutes, "come down. It's all a

PARALYSIS OF INDUSTRY?
Transvaal and Orange River Colony In
Poor Financial Condition.,
Johannesburg, March 3.Lord Mil
ner, British high commissioner in South
Africa, in delivering the presidential
address before the intercolonial coun
cil for the Transvaal and Orange River
Colony, revealed the grave financial
condition of the colony. said a de
ficit amounting to $5,000,000 was due
to the shrinkage in railroad receipts
and the general paralysis of industry,
while almost all of the $150,000,000
loan has already been expended on
railroads, the repatriation of the Boers
and the development of the country.
Their only resources now were pa
