City Council Takes Action
Looking Toward New
The city water question occu
pied the attention of the city
council during the greater part
of last night's meeting. The re
port of the state chemist on the
latest analysis of city water was
read. It was received yesterday
morning. It developed nothing
new except that the samples
taken from the new well of War
tield Bros, were pronounced be
yond reproach and this source of
water supply was established as
satisfactory from a sanitary
standpoint. The council in
structed the recorder to adver
tise for pipes for water mains
and for a new pump.
The state chemist's report
while pronouncing the writer
from the new well as beyond re

Former Schoolmates Wedded At

Years of Separation.
Last Wednesday at Lake Alice,

wedding the preliminaries to
which were something of a ro

Mrs. Myra A. Terrell, of Post

postmaster at Lake Alice. The
Walker Pilot says:
There is something of the ro
mantic connected with the wed
ding. The bride was Mrs. M. A.
Terrell, of Postyiile, Iowa. She
is 44 years old and Mr. Stowell
is 55.- They were schoolmates
together in Iowa and grew up to
gether, but it is not on record
that there was any lovers' quar
rel and a parting. In course of
time Mr. Stowell left Iowa and
the young lady became Mrs.
Terrell. She has now been a
widow for some time and carried
in her arms as she landed from

Preliminary StepsTaken Last
Evening for the Organiza
tion of a Dunn Club.
A ROUSER RATIFICATION MEET-
ING IS PLANNED.
Followers of the Princeton Man
Plan an Aggressive
Yesterday a call was issued for
an informal meeting at the court
house of those republicans of the
city and county who desire the
nomination of Robert C. Dunn
of Princeton for governor on the
republican"ticket, In response
to the call a number gathered at
the auditor's office last evening
and effected a preliminary or
ganization of the Beltrami County
W. A. Gould was unanimously
elected chairman and F. W.
Rhoda was also chosen secretary
by a unanimous vote. An execu
tive committee of seven, includ
ing the chairman and secretary,
was appointed, the additional
members being Fred Sibley, of
Solway,Joe Cartier, of Tenstrike,
Geo. Davis, of Baudette.and H, J.
Loud, of this citfy and John Mc
Dougald of Blackduck.
It was also agreed to hold a
ratification meeting in the near
future and it is hoped to have
Dunn himself present at this
meeting. The executive commit
tee has taken up the work today
and it may safely be said that
nothing will be left undone to
carry Beltrami county for Dunn.
It is understood tnat the Col
lins campaign in Beltrami county
has been entrusted to the manage
ment of L. H. Bailey, of this city,
and while there is comparatively
little sentiment for Collins in the
county Mr. Bailey will endeavor
to deliver the county to the St.
Cloud man just the same. The
Collins campaign in the city and
county has been proceeding
quietly for some time under Mr.
Bailey's management and will be
continued unless the rumors of
Collins' withdrawal prove true.
The Dunn supporters point to
the fact that the natural trend of
sentiment in the county is for the
Princeton man, whose record for
efficiency, his well known friend
liness to northern Minnesota and
his manyactsofpersonal kindness
to the settlers of this section liave
made him the spontaneous can
didate of the people of all this
part of the state, and they are
confident that the people of Bel
trami county are not unmindful
of these things and that Dunn
will carry the county with little
or no trouble.
