WANTS SOME BIG MUSKALONGE
Executive Agent of the State Game
and Fish Commission iii Br
midji Last Night.
S. P. Fullerton, executive agent
of the state game and fish com
mission was in the city last night.
Mr. Fullerton came up to meet
J. J. Ellis, the local warden but
was unable to meet him as he is
out of the city at present. The
employes of the state fish hatch
ery soon begin the work of taking
pike spawn and Mr. Fullerton
had been informed by Mr. Ellis
that there was a good spot in this
vicinity to collect eggs.
The entire supply of the state
hatchery last year was taken at
Winnebegoshish dam, but pike
spawn is quite hard to obtain and
Mr. Fullerton has decided to try
several places this year. He will
return again in a few days to
meet Mr. Ellis.
Mr.Fullerton saysthat the state
and fish commission plans to have
quite an elaborate exhibit at the
St. Louis exposition this year,
and he would like to enlist the
aid of all the fishermen in this
section securing a few speci
mens of muskalonge. The musk
alonge is a fish that thrives bet
ter in this section of Minnesota
than anywhere in the world and
sportsmen generally are much
interested in them. Mr. Fuller
ton says the exhibit of the game
and fish commission at the Buff
alo Exposition was one of the
most valuable advertisements
the state has ever had and he will
make all possible efforts to have
the St. Louis exhibit eclipse it.
Mr. Fullerton suggests that
when a fine specimen of muska-

longe is caught, it be kept alive
and the game and fish commission
notified and arrangements will
be made to have it shipped to St.
Paul. In the event that enough
were secured a tank car would
be sent up and the fish would be
shipped direct to St. Louis.
AJr. Fullerton says that ap
plications for minnows from the
state hatchery are becoming
more numerous every year.
This season there is a big demand
for trout and several thousand
trout minnows are soon to be
shipped to Cass Lake, where they
will be taken out and transplant
ed, in a trout stream that has
been discovered Qewr^h&re
Fullerton says the trouble with
poachers"is becoming less every
year and that there are fewer
complaints from this section of
the country of violations of the
game and fish laws than from
many of the older settled sections
of the state.
Meeting Saturday Night.
Judge Reynolds, captain of the
Bemidji Independent Military
company has called a meeting of
the members for Saturday night.
The judge who has been one of
the most enthusiastic promoters
of the company feels very much
encouraged over the prospect of

of the regiments and desires a
full [attendance of the member
ship. It is also hoped that all
who are interested and are eligi
ble to membership will turn out.
A rousing meeting is planned
and the future of the company
depends very largely on the in
terest which is manifested.
Pickup for Chief of Police.
Judge McClenahan this morn
ing made an order for hearing in
the matter of the reward paid by

horse thief by Chief of Police

Tenstrike case has been on trial
today and was expected to go to
