Continued from First Page
I refer to an article in the St.
Paul Daily News saying that Be
midji was no nice place for nolding
the convention.f^On behalf of every
Elk now assembled in Bemidji and
of every Elk in the state, I want to
emphatically refute such charges as
are made by the News."
There were many cries of "You
bet," "Hurrah for Bemidji," etc.
In conclusion President Pease
importuned every Elk to be present
at the meeting of the State Associa
tion to be held at 1 30 p. m.
There were loud cries for the
Elks quartette of Crookston and
finally Messrs. Krouse, Touton,
Wessell and Hitchcock came to the
front and responded with "Harrigan,
That's Me." They were cheered to
the echo and finally sang "Tele
phone Up There." The crowd did
not cease calling for them until they
rendered another selection.
The convention was called to
order about 2 o'clock this afternoon.
A full account of the convention
will be given in tomorrow's paper.
Welcomed Hibbmg "Bunch."'
A large crowd of people met the
Hibbing delegation of Elks at the
Great Northern depot yesterday
afternoon. Mayoi Pogue was at the
train to welcome the visitors and
rode in a decorated single-seated
buggy drawn by a fine team of
high-stepping horses. The buggy
was covered by a purple and white
colored canopy top, on the front of
which was the inscription, "Mayor
Pogue, Welcome Elks." The Crooks
ton band and the leception com
mittee were present and gave the
visitors a royal welcome and es
corted the aew arrivals around the

The Hibbing delegation of Elks,
headed by T. J. Godfrey, their ex

as "co-booster," arrived in the city
yesterday afternoon, forty strong,
and armed with the healthy deter

tion. With the great mining in
dustry on the range as a special
feature of the visit to Hibbing, the
delegates took very/kindly to the in
vitation to visit the range town next
year. And besides they're a "durnd"
good bunch and with their elegant
baseball team made a very favorable
impression upon the visiting Elks.
Mr. and Mrs. Harry Ives of St.

have been enjoying the convention
and reunion. Mr. Ives is one of
the most populars members of the

They have a high grade of music

W. W. Koons, exalted rulei of St.

night and made the "welkin ring" in
different parts of the city. Mr.
Koons got a hold of the minstrel
quartette and dug up his party in
short order. They went as far as
the home of W. H. Vye, a former
resident of St. Cloud and the crowd
certainly had a jolly time. Mr.
Koons was ably assisted by H. A.
McKenzie, Fred Pi ice, Joseph
Hilbie, P. A. Martin, "Bill" Ander
son and "Bill" Richards, all of St.
Cloud, all of whom were accompan

member of the party was Dr. Bryant

into the zest of the serenade with
proper Elk spirit. W. W. Koons

Bemidji Elks vs.
Special Grand Jury at Grand Rapids.
Grand Rapids, June 19.(Special
to Pioneer.)The first special grand
jury ever summoned in Itasca
county began its sessions yesterday
morning. The jurors were all of
them brought in under a special
order made by Judge McClenaban
in view of the developments which
occurred yesterday in the case of
State vs Boindich.
It appeared during the examina
tion of jurors and after four men
had been sworn on the case that the
indictment which had been returned,
charged the commission of the
offence as having taken place on
September 1, 1908. This presented
so serious a question that County
Attorney Thwing relunctantly came
to the conclusion that the indictment
was defective, and so this morning
dismissed the case.
Biondich will probably be re-in
dicted as soon as the witnesses can
be heard by the grand jury. He
has friends who are assisting him and
the case will be stubbornly contest
Peculiar interest has been aroused
over the prosecution, by reason of
the fact that the alleged crime took
place at Nashwauk about the time
of the miners strike last summer.
The defendant was charged with
arson in having set fire to a boarding
house occupied by some of the men
working at the La Rue or Hawkins
mine. The witnesses include some
of the mining company officials
The latter have been anxious, it is
understood, to have the case against
Biondich, pushed ajs hard as circum-
Under the law Biondich is entitled
to five days for preparation of his
defence and in the event that he is
reindicted, will probaply claim this
time. It is feared that this will pro
bably delay the work of the term
somewhat, as at the presenc time
there is no othei criminal case
ready for trial. The witnesses in
the Biondich case will ^probob'y be
held until the case is reached on the
cale.nder, if another indictment is
