BEFORE THE BATTLE.
The annual village election
takes place tomorrow. Two
tickets are in the field and all the
candidates are representative
business men well known to
everybody in the city. No mat
ter who is elected the village is
sure of securing an able set of
officers for the ensuing year and
the, contest is one of a personal
nature between the various op
posing parties. The members
of the present councirare all can
didates for reelection. They
enjoy the confidence of the peo
ple of the city generally and have
made a record for efficiency that
is set forth in the annual finan
cial statement published in this
issue of the Pioneer. What may
be expected from the opposing
ticket in case of election is set
forth in their platform dis
tributed about the town today
and appearing elsewhere in this
issue. These gentlemen are
also thoroughly competent and
the village is to be congratulated
upon the fact that it is certain in
any event of a business men's
administration during the com

Receivership of Red Lake
Transportation Co. Plans
Busy Summer's Work.
REPORTED SALE OF RAILROAD
Plans Perfected to Handle Forty
Million to Red River
The receivership of the Red
Lake Transportation Co. will be
gin active operations in the Red
Lake country about the first of
May, according to information
had last night from Mr. W. G.
Marsdon, trustee for the com
Mr. Marsdon stated that the
receivership expected to start
work just as soon as the weather
would permit in getting out its
logs which are banked on the
Mud, Sandy and Blackduck
rivers. About ten million feet on
the Mud river will be driven
through to Red Lake and most of
the other logs will be hoisted and
hauled to Red Lake Landing.
Altogether the timber to be
handled will aggregate about
forty million feet.
The railroad will begin oper
ations about the first of May and
all the interests of the company
will be conducted as formerly
with the exception of the store.
Next summer's work will give
employment to a large number of
men and will mean a very great
deal for that section of the coun
try. Mr. Marsden anticipates a
favorable spring and there is
every indication at present that
there will be ample water in all
the streams to move the drive
Regarding the reported sale of
the Red Lake Transportation
Co.'s railroad to the Northern
Pacific Mr. Marsden said there
was absolutely no truth in the
story which has been in circula
tion in this city for several days.
The purchase of the road is a
possibility of the future for busi
ness reasons that are sufficiently
obvious but so far negotiations
have not been had looking in that
direction. Mr. Marsden expects
to have his headquarters in Be
midji and came up from Minne
apolis Saturday night. Chas.
Hamlin, of Nebish, will be super
tendent under the receivership.
Man Who Started Fight on M. &
I. Passenger Presents the
The Minnesota & International
railway is threatened with a
damage suit at present in which
a well known lumberman, in the
employ of a well known firm of
contractors will be the plaintiff.
The gentleman was a passen
ger from this city several weeks
ago on the north bound passen
ger train. He is said by those
who were in the smoking car to
have been intoxicated and be
came unruly between this city
and Tenstrike. The train crew
civilly requested him several
times to behave himself but he
was out for a time and made
things decidedly disagreeable
for everybody in the coach. Af
ter repeated efforts to quiet him
he was taken by the collar and
slammed rather unceremoni
ously into a seat, after which he
started a rough and tumble fight
in which he is said to have come
off second best.
Now he will begin a damage
suit and theM. &.I. is investigat
ing the conduct of the train crew
in the matter. The general sen
timent of those present at the
affair seems to be that the train
anything from Chief Bemidji for
some time. He is up on the Cass
Lake reservation enjoying the
best of health and we expect a
visit from him soon.
Business Man: I think this
crew was long suffering and that
if anybody received a beating it
was more or less deserved.
MONEY IN WATER
Fountain of Perpetual Youth
Discovered Near North
If a story which a well known
gentlemen, who has extensive
interests in several of the towns
along'the north line, last night
told the Pionaer can be made
to stand up before a somewhat
scrupulous public the fountain
of perpetual youth has been dis
covered and its location is not far
from one of the towns in this
Publicity is avoided at present
for the reason that several mat
ters affecting the development of
the property are in em bryo.
The gentleman claims to have
five springs on a piece of prop
erty which he owns that are the
finest thing of the sort in this
section. He has been at some
pains to secure an analysis and
it compares very favorably and
is much better in fact than that
of some of the most famous
brands of spring water on the
In the near future a bottling
plant will be put in at the springs
and the water will be put on the
market. Its merits are to be
liberally advertised and there is
every indication that it will prove
a very profitable investment.
Dad Palmer's Resort.
''Dad" Palmer, the veteran
newspaper man, who is at pres
ent employed on the Beltrami
County News anticipates the
opening of the fishing season this
year with more than ordinary
interest. Mr. Palmer has spent
most of the present winter in the
north line towns and says that
during his absensehebas located
one of the finest resorts in this
section. It is in easy driving
distance of Turtle River. Mr.
Palmer proposes to take out tents
and have a regular resort, will be
prepared to furnish boats and
says he is prepared to guarantee
the best fishing in the entire
northwest. Mr. Palmer is well
familiar with the country, is the
boss fisherman of this section
and would be an ideal host. His
resort will no doubt be liberal ly
Big Summer For Walker.
P. H. McGarry who was at the
Markham yesterday says he ex
pects a big summer for the sum
mer resort at Walker. Mr. Me
Garry says the indications at
present are that the accommoda
tions of the town will be taxed
and is much pleased with the in
terest that is evinced in Walker's
summer resort inducement by
the pleasure seeking public at
large. Mr. McGarry believes that
with a favorable summer all the
towns in this section will have a
full quota of tourists during all
of the season. Improvements
are contemplated at Walker that
will greatly enhance its present
Busy at Beuna Vista.
There is every indication that
tomorrow will be one of the busi
est days they have had at Beuna
Vista for some time. It is the
occasion of the town election and
a very hot fight is on between
Faltsek and J. C. Campbell for
the chairmanship of the town
board. All other matters are
lost sight of in the contest and
the friends of the two candidates
have been moving at a business
gait for some time past.

TH E LI
Thought to be in the Last Stages
Mrs. Minerva Burgess, of
Byars, 111., says I have just re
ceived the White Wine of Tar.
We think there is no medicine
like it. It cured me when I was
thought to be in the last stages
of consumption. I will always
recomend it to those that have
any disease of the lungs.
The most loathsome and repulsive of all
living things Is the serpent, and the vilest and
most degrading of all human diseases is Contagious Blood Poison. The
serpent sinks its fangs into the flesh and almost instantly the poison passes
through the entire body. Contagious Blood Poison, beginning with a little
ulcer, soon contaminates every drop of blood and spreads throughout the
whole system. Painful swellings appear in the groins, a red rash and
copper colored splotches break out on the body, the mouth and throat
become ulcerated, and the hair and eye brows fall out but these symptoms
are mild compared to the and suffering tha.tin. come in the latte
stages of the disease when it attacks the bones and more vital parts of the

tagious Bloo Poiso ia seen all its- hideousr
aesa. The deep- eatmg abscesses and sickening ulcers and tumors show
the whole system is corrupted and poisoned, and unless relief comes soon
this serpent disease tightens its coils and- crushes out the life The only
antidote for the awful virus is S. S. S. It is nature's remedy, com
posed entirely of vegetable ingredients. S. S. S.
destroys every vestige of the poison, purifies the
blood and removes all danger of transmitting the
awful taint to others. Nothing else will do this.
Strong mineral remedies, like mercury and potash,
dry up the sores and drive in the disease, but do not cure permanently.

advice or special information. This will cost you nothing.
