THE HUBERT POSTOFFIGE
WAS LOOTED AND ROBBED
Thieves Entered the Building and Stole
Stamps and Merchandise, Making
The postoffice at Hubert, thirteen
miles north Brainerd on the M. &
I. road, was broken into Tuesday
night and robbed of stamps and
stamped patper to the amount of
$30 and $50, the stamps being of
different denominations. The post
office is located in the general store
of Tony Bohlke, who is the post
master, and is near the residence of
Freeman Thorpe. The robbery
occurred at about midnight, as near
as can be determined, as about that
time the family of Mr. Thorpe heard
a noise which was sufficient to
awaken them, but they did not
think at the time anything unusual
was going on and did not investi
The burglars broke into the build
ing and ransacked it from top to
bottom, turning the goods over and
selecting what they wanted, mostly
consisting of rubbers and mittens,
and departed without leaving any
clue as to their identity. The mail
in the postoffice was mixed up, but
as far as the postmaster could
ascertain at that time, nothing was
taken except the stamps and a little
change, which was left outside the
safe. As no attempt was made to
blow the safe it is not thought that
the work was that of professionals.
The baseball "fans" of Bemidji
will not be compelled to wait until
next summer before tfiey can
loosen up their "rooting" for the
great national game.
Two indoor baseball teams have
already been organized in this
city, and some twenty candidates
for the two teams are practicing
every afternoon in the skating rink
so as to get into trim for the
games which will be played during
There are several old indoor ball
players in this city, and as there
are many players who have played
the regular game, there is no doubt
but this city can put two excellent
teams of indoor baseball players into
R. E. Mitchell has been instru
mental in getting the players
together, and is acting as tempor
ary manager. He has secured the
necessary balls and bats, bases and
other paraphernalia, with the ex
ception of suits, which will be
forthcoming in a few days.
Of the regular team the following
have already been selected. Carter
c, Bush and Mitchell p, Arneson lb,
Govro 2b, Benson 3b, Conibar and
Kermode ss, Carlton If, Grimoldby
For the second team there are the
following players who are candi
dates: Getchell, Hilliby, Solberg,
Lycan, Anderjson, Dennis, Billadeau,
McDonald, Foster and others.
Arrangements are being made to
play games with outside teams and
it is expected that the Brainerd
indoor ball team will play here next
The management wil also try to
arrange games with Crookston.Grand
Rapids and other towns, and some
good sport is assured this winter.
Hearing Held Today.
The county court house was
crowded today with a crowd which
was eager to hear the evidence given
at" the preliminarv hearing of Tom
Peterson and Mike Shea, charged
with grand larceny.
R. C. Bryant is the complaining
witness in the case, and he charges
the two defendants with having
entered a room which he occupied at
the Lakeshore hotel and taking $50
belonging to Bryant. *M ~g
t.^Bryant told about the same story
as was published in the Pioneer
recently, but failed to positively
identify either Peterson or Shea as
the party who entered the room and
knocked him through the window.
The hearing was continued this
afternoon, Justice Slocum presiding,
and the defense presented its side of
the case, Gibbons & Torrance
appearing as attorneys for Peterson
Before Justice Slocum this morn
ing, Duncan McDougall waived ex
amination to the charge of assault
in the second degree, and was held
to the grand jury in the sum of
$1,000 bonds, which was furnished,
and McDougall was released.
McDougall recently defied the
authorities, at the point of a loaded
revolver, to take him into custody
and threatened to exterminate the
entire police force and any other
officials that disturbed his enjoyment
of gun play. He was subsequently
arrested by Deputy Sheriff J. N.
Bailey and lodged in the county
jail. DECIDE NOT TO REBUILD

Messrs. Miles & Markham Conclude
to Abandon the Project, After

and George Markham, proprietors
of the Miles hotel, recently destroyed
by fire, will leave Hibbing tomorrow.
After much meditation they have
abandoned all idea of rebuilding the
hotel, much to the disappointment
of the citizens of this place. The
site, which is the best in the city, is
still unsold, but Mr. Miles states
that he has a purchaser in view
From now on Mr. Miles will
devote his time and attention to the
Majestic theatre at St. Paul, a new
and up-to-date vaudeville playhouse,
which he purchased some months
ago. He also has options on several
good sites in Minneapolis, upon one
of which he intends to build a house
somewhat similar to the Majestic at
St. Paul. When the new theater is
ready it will be managed by Mr.
The decision of Messrs. Miles and
Markham to dispose of their interests
in Hibbing is met with great regret,
the former especially having been
closely identified with Hibbing for
many years and always regarded
as one of its most prominent and
loyal business men.

by a large timber wolf yesterday
Mr. Gregory was returning from
J. Goss & Co 's camp when he was
startled by a big grey, ferocious
looking wolf making for him. He
was unarmed, and found himself in
a desperate condition. To flee was
useless, for it was at least two miles
to any habitation. There was no
tree nearby which it was possible to
climb, so Mr. Gregory concluded to
fight the beast, hand to hand. Seiz
