Red Lake Railroad May Tap
M. & I. at Tenstrike
ARRANGEMENTS SAID TO
~~TIW1PLETED FOR MOV E
Proposed Extension Will Make
Entire Red Lake Country
Tributary to Bernidji.
The annoucement is made in
the city today that final arrange
ments have been concluded for
the extension of the Red Lake
railroad from Whitefish to Ten
strike, that camps will be estab
lished soon and that the connec
tion will be made before the first
of the coming December.
E. Marson, the trustee for the
insolvent Red Lake Transporta
tion company, is said to be au
thority for the positive statement
that the work will be done and
the work of taking in supplies is
claimed to have been begun.
The rumor will be interesting
to the north country generally as
the connection of the Red Lake
road with the M. & I. means the
rapid development of a consider
able portion of very resourceful
country, its. more convenient ac
cessibility and the establishment
of a number of new and prosper
ous towns in Beltrami country.
The Red Lake railroad is a log
ging road constructed under un
usual difficulties several years
ago by the Red Lake Transpor
tation Co., in which the Messrs.
Halvorson & Richards, extensive
railroad contractors, were largely
interested. Its construction was
to meet the demands of the log
ging industry in the Red Lake
country. The rails and all the
equipment of the road were
hauled in from Walker, before
the M. & I. reached Bemidji. Six
teen miles of the road built and
operated successfully for several
years. One end of the road is at
Red Lake landing and the
other at Whitefish, only a short
distance from Tenstrike, I on the
M. & I. Several logging trains
aue in service and the road was
operated steadily during the log
ging season until the failure of
the Red iSake Transportation Co.
last winter necessitated a sus
pension of operations. Its ulti
mate connection with the M. & I.
has .always been conceded.
When the receivership of the
Transportation Co. assumed

hundred and twenty thousand
more logs per day are being
hauled at present than ever be

the entire satisfaction of the re
ceivership management. The
logs are boomed at the landing
and towed across the lake by the
steamers to the Thief and Red
Lake rivers where they are
sorted for the mills at Thief

DUN N SENTIMENT PRONOUNCED
Consternation in Collins Camp
and Third Candidate Talk
The developments of the past
ten days are believed sufficient
to warrant the statement that
Beltrami county will send a Dunn
delegation to the state conven
tion by those who are taking an
active interest in the pre-conven
tion canvass for the guberna
torial candidates. Pronounced
Dunn sentiment has developed in
many quarters quite unexpected
and the prediction made earlier
in the campaign that the strong
natural Dunn sentiment in Bel
trami county could not be over
come is apparently confirmed.
While the state at large has
been an interested spectator to
the spectacular tight for the gu
bernatorial nomination Beltrami
county has been uncertain ground
for both candidates. In the re
cent claims of strength given
outttythe Collins and Dunn
forces Beltrami county was
claimed by both, but the real fact
of the matter is that but little in
terest has been taken up to the
The organization of the county
for the convention fight has been
progressing quietly for some
time and the Collins' claims have
all along been sufficiently extrav
agant to say the least. The claims
of the Collins' forces do not ap

ever, and as the time.for the hold
ing of the primaries approaches
and .interest in the contest is
aroused the Dunn sentiment,
which has been dormant among
the voters who take little part in

and to the Collins' forces has
taken the form of the handwrit

a Dunn club and "Dad" Palmer,

From the extreme north of the
county comes the report that the
delegates to the county conven

lying towns are coming down for
Dunn and in the city of Bemidji
the Dunn sentiment is being fos
tei'ed carefully by a strong Dunn
club and is growing daily.
The canards of the state house

freely in Bemidii as in any sec

proving a boomerang to the Col

Collins' forces are casting about
a good deal and there is a very
great deal of third candidate talk
in the Collins' camp. L, H. Bailey,
who has been credited with the
leadership of the Collins'forces
in -this city is said to be freely re
marking his friendship for Prank
Eddy, and is said to have made
the statement that he always ad
mired Mr. Eddy, anyhow. This
is regarded as very significant by
those who have played ball with
Mr. Bailey in other campaigns
and is taken as a certain indica
tion that he is about to scuttle the
ship and elbow his way to a front
seat on the Dunn band wagon.

State Game and Fish Commis
sion Places Pike Fry in Cass
Hubbard County Lakes.
Arthur A. Frank, an employe
of the state game and fish com
mission, spent Thursday night
in Cass Lake. Mr. Frank is the
distributor of fry for the state
fish hatchery and his trip from
St. Paul to Cass Lake was for
the purpose of visiting Dorset
and~ Nevis, towns on the Sauk
Centre branch of the Great
Northern, where he left 700,000
pike fry, 350,000 for each place,
which will be placed in the lakes
tributary to those towns. Be
midji parties have spoken to the
local game warden relative to se
curing a quantity of pike fry
with which to stock several of
the small lakes in the vicinity of
Bemidji, and Mr. Frank is of the
opinion that if an application is
made in the proper manner, the
.game and tish commission will
furnish the tish, as they have a
large number of pike.

Friday afternoon a neighbor of

the conditions was wrought by
the owner himself. The furni

Roberg was accustomed to carry
lay on the iloor with the hammer

it were a razor, an axe and a

may have contemplated suicide.

they heard the neighbor. He
visited, the barn and found from

It is thought that isolation had
