Yesterday's fire was one of the
hardest to fight which a fireman
can have. A brick veneered
building, the Pioneer is informed,
is classed next to a powder house
for difficulty and danger in case
of fire. It is plain praise to say
that the Bemidii fire department
yesterday did nobly in their ef
forts to control the fire in the
the Swedback block. Hour after
hour the fireman were compelled
toil through smoke and chilling
wind. For almost twelve hours
the entire department was on
duty and during the first five
hours of that time the duties of
the individual fireman were ar
duous and dangerous. Every
thing that man could do to save
property and to prevent the
spread of the fire was done by
the fireman and their praises are
today on every man's tongue.
Bemidji has great occasion to
congratulate itself upon so faith
ful and so capable department of
So FAR as personal qualities
go, democratic John A. Johnson,
governor elect of Minnnesota is
as far superior to such men as
Van Sant, Collins and others who
made his election possible as the
sun is more glorious than the
moon. Naturally Mr. Johnson
is glad to be goverror, but he
cannot stomach the means that
were used to put him there and
he declares this week in his St.
Peter Herald, "Robert C. Dunn
was abused as few candidates be
fore him have been."
OFFICIAL returns show that
the republican nominee for gov
ernor had a majority of about
2,000 outside of the twin cities,
and of about 500 outside of the
strong republican county of
Hennepin. One reason why Min

tain the political plums that its
size and importance would nat
uaally entitle it to is that the city
is uniformly determined that if
it cannot have what it wants, no
body slse shall have what they
THE Duluth News Tribune in
a forceful and timely editorial
calls attention to the growing
evil of the demand for irrigation.
There have been few newspapers
with sufficient moral courage to
tell the truth about this matter
but the News Tribune is one of
the few. Irrigation is a press
ing want through vast regions in
the west, but it is utter injustice
that the nation should spend mil
lions for irrigation and nothing
for the equally great needs of
other states. which do not need
irrigation. _.- i

of twin city papers
can fail to have remarked the
fact that the same sort of an at
tack which was made upon Mr.
Dunn has now been begun upon
Senator Clapp. The same insid
ious misrepresentation of politi
cal news which was so success
fully used against Mr. Dunn has
been begun against Senator
Clapp and we predict that it will
not be many days before the twin
city papers are teeming with all
sorts of charges against the sen
ator and with all sorts of stories
of his weakness. It remains to
be seen whether the people will
allow themselves to be the second

Kingman & Co. Make a Denial of All
Peoria, 111., Nov. 25.The answer
of Kingman & Co. to the charges
brought by C. A. Jamison, for
mer vice president and general man
ager of the concerns, has been filed in
tile circuit court. The answer admits
the questions of fact, such as the for
mation of the different companies, but
denies categorically any illegal action
on the part of the president, or the
other members of the corporation, de
nies that they have juggled the books
afld accounts of the companies or that
any conspiracy was ever entered into
by the president or any members of,
or men associated with the different
corporations bearing the name King
man, to defraud Mr. Jamison or gain
control of his stock.
The answer prays that the bill filed
by Mrs. Jamison be dismissed and de
nies that Mr. Jamison now owns any
of the stock of Kingman & Co.
AUSTRIAN SUICIDES AT SEA.
Distracted"by Grief He Jumps From
an Ocean Vessel.
New York, Nov. 26.Driven to des
peration by the plight of his wife, who,
he had told his fellow passengers, is
under arrest at Hamburg, charged with
child murder, Dernetei Boni, a steer
age passenger, jumped overboard from
the steamer Graf Waldersee and was
drowned. The suicide was reported
when the steamer arrived here from
Hamburg. The officers of the Graf
Waldersee said that Boni appeared
greatly distressed when he boarded
the steamer and drank heavily. Last
Tuesday he jumped overboard, and,
although the steamer was put about
and a boat was sent in search of the
man, he was not found. Boni was an
Austrian, about thirty-six years of age.

Inflammatory Rheumatism. I was laid up
in bed for six months, and the doctoral

joints were swollen terribly, and at one
time my joints were so swollen and pain
