party of Well Known Nymore
Gentlemen Have Trouble
In Hubbard County.
SHERIFF PURSUES THEM O
DETROIT WITH POSSE.
Accused of Stealing By Steve
Rhodes.Jury Trial Results
In Exoneration.
Thos. McCutcheon, Solon and
Ed Pinley and W. J. Smith, of
Nymore, had a rather^unpleasant
experience down in Hubbard
county this week, one that
caused them all sorts 01 incon
venience, and finally ended in
their complete exoneration of a
Charge of stealing preferred by
Steve Rhodes, of Lake George
The four started ]ast week on a
trip to the Dakota harvest fields
and were driving through. The
first night after leaving Bemidji
ihey camped at Lake George
JThey slept on some hay which
bad,been taken from a neighbor
mg barn, with the consent of a
man whom they supposed to be
the owner, and went their way
next morning The hay was the
property of Steve Rhodes, who
went to Park Rapids and swore
out a warrant for their ai rest on
a charge of stealing. He told the
^heriff such a rosy story of the
affair that Mr. Petrie decided he
had better take a posse to effect
their capture. Accordingly him
self and three deputies set out
to make the arrest, all armed to
the teeth. They overhauled the
party near Detroit.
I The sheriff was informed that
they were all bad men and all
had guns and bowie knives and
was surprised when he effected
the arrests to find that the only
weapon they had was a pocket
knife.
They were taken back to Park
Rapids and had a jury trial yes
terday which lesulted their
complete acquittal. The costs
tjo Hubbard county will be some
thing more than $100 and Mr
Rhodes, of Lake George, will not
be a prime favorite with County
Attorney Bills or Sheriff Petrie
when he comes in to complain
again.
New Members Qualify.
The newly elected members of
t)he school board, the Messrs.

MA GE A SIT
"Doc" Rutledge May Succeed
Warren as Superintendent
of Forest Reserve.
"Doc" Rutledge, the Cass Lake
newspaper man may succeed
E L. Warren, who was recently
removed from the position of
superintendent of the Minnesota
Forest Reserve at Cass Lake. A
recent dispatch from Washing
ton is authority for the statement
that a western man will probably
be named for the position If
Mr Warren is to be succeeded
it can tiuthfully be said that it
could not be done more accept
ably to the people of this section
than by appointing Mr. Rutledge.
"Doc" is a tireless worker, an
enthusiast in anything he under
takes and a vigilant correspond
ent who has perhaps done more
to advertise Northern Minnesota
resources to the outside world
than any man this section.
He has hosts of Bemidji friends
who would be pleased to endorse
him and he is said to enter the
running with the endorsement of
Congressman Buckman Con
gressman Steenerson has also
been approached in his interests
and provided the department has
not already made a selection
there is little question but that
Mr. Rutledge will be the man.
Many Attend Excursion.
The attendance from Beraid]!
on the Duluth excursion today
was very large. About eighty
tickets were sold at the Great
Northern depot. The excursion
ists included a number of Black
duck and Tenstrike people. The
train was heavily loaded when it
reached this city half an hour be
hind schedule time and the ex
cursionists were all in a very
happy mood. Several detectives
are on the train and are watching
the crowd carefully to prevent
pickpockets and crooks of all
sorts from operating. The ex
cursion will reach this city re
turning late Sunday night.
May Move to Turtle.
S. D. Works, the well known
lumberman, was in the city last
night and states that ha is con
sidering the proposition of re
moving his hardwood mill plant
from Nary to Turtle River Mr
Works for a time considered Be
midji as a location. He has not
yet definitely decided what he
will do regarding the location
but is inclined to favor Turtle
River as it has a number of
natural advantages not affored in
Bemid]i for industry of this kind
The mill will not be moyed until
this fall and is being run up tosaid
its capacity every day.
Insanity Case.
County Auditor Sylvester this
morning received a telegram from
the chairman of the town board
the town of Baudette advising
him cf the development of a very
bad case of insanity and asking
what should be done with the
patient Owing to the expense
which would be involved in
bringing the case here it will be
taken to Roseau county and there
disposed of. The expense will be
borne by Beltrami county The
case is one of the first developed
in the northern section of the
country.
The Whist Tournament.
The whist tournament under
the auspices of the Busines
Men's club opened last night
Two tables were played last
night Graham and Rhoda made
153 points against Browne and
George, who secured 159 a gam
of six points. Schneider and
Loud made 167 points against
Hitchcock and Phibbs,, who made
L45, losing by a sufficiency of
twenty-two points One table
played cinch. There was no
business session.
A Big Offer,
The Crookston Lumber Co. is
offering a mammoth wagon box
of short mill wood at th,e rate of
$2 per load. This wood is ready
for the kitchen stove, makes the
.finest kind of fuel for the kitchen
fire, is splendid for kindling and
is usable for all purposes. A
few loads of this purchased now
will dry rapidly and can be used
at once as well as a provision lor
the winter. Telephone 208 or
call up Wes Wright.
Building Store Building.
James and William Dougherty
have begun the oration of a new
store building at Nymore. Com
pleted it will bo of the most
substantnl structures in that
village. I twill probably bo oc
cupied by a general store,
although no arrangements have
yet been made to lease it.
To Keep Stock at Tenstrike.
Walker & Akeley are con
structing a spur at Tenstrike
and will have headquarters for
their cedar business there in the
future The firm has a large
quantity of stock from last win
ter's cutting which will be put in

GAN OF SHREWD OPERATORS
SAID TO BE WORKING.
Alleged That Silks ancf'Merchan
dise are BeingBroughtAcross
Beltrami County Line.
According to reports which
reached this city from towns in
the extreme northern portion of
Beltrami county, government
seciet service agents, who have
been working in the Rainy River
towns for some time are drawing
the meshes- about one of the
cleverest gangs of smugglers
ever discovered in this section
who have been working between
the north line towns for some
time.
It is alleged that silk and mer
chandise has been brought across
from the Canadian side in great
quantities for some time past
and that the smugglers who sue
ceeded evading the duty have
been reaping the harvest.
In the gang are several women
and the plan seems to have been
to get the goods across the line
and then peddle them out in a
house to house canvass Last
winter two women visited this
city and called in the most,ans
tocratic portion ot the city show
ing a line of silk which were of
fered much cheaper than they
could be bought at any store
in the city. The prices asked
were a general marvel and it is
believed that the women were
agents of the smugglers
It is said to be easier to get
goods across the line in northern
Beltrami and Itasca counties
than at any point on the Cana
dian boundary, despite the fact
that the customs officers are very
vigilant and some of them among
the oldest men in the service.
People prominent in some of
the north country towns are
said to be implicated and very
sensational developments are
said to be pending
In the gang of smugglers there
are several Chinamen who have
been bringing opium across the
lineand assisted by their country
men on this side they have been
able to gei it to market and are
to have acquired a snug
sum in profits.
