HEARD ARGUMENTS IN AN
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
In Chambers, Yesterday, Judge Stanton
Considered Case Involving Timber-
Cutting at Cass Lake.
In chambers yesterday, Judge
Stanton presided at the hearing in
the case of Christ Wragge against
Henry Mullenmeister, both of Cass
Lake, in which the defendant,
Mullenmeister, asks for an order
restraining the plaintiff, Wragge,
from cutting timber from a certain
tract of "reservation" land near
George B. Edgerton of St. Paul,
former assistant attorney general,
appeared as counsel for Mullen
meister while Wragge had C. C.
McCarthy of Grand Rapids and R.
M. Funk of Cass Lake for his
The argument was on an order to
show cause in which Mullenmeister
sought to restrain Wragge from
It appears that Wragge was allow
ed by the U. S. land office at Cass
Lake to file on the land in contre
versey at the opening of the land
at the Cass Lake land,offce on
August 15, 1905.
In the argument of the case
Mullenmeister's attorney brought
out that Mullenmeister claimed to
have been on the public highway
running through the land prior to
9 o'clock on the day of the land
opening that Mullenmeister stepped
on the land at exactly 9 o'clock on
the day of the opening and claimed
right to file prior to Wragge because
of having been on the land. The
department of Interior has already
ruled that Mullenmeister had no
legal right on the highway prior to
the opening of the land.
Judge Stanton took the case under
advisement and will probably render
a decision this week.

WEEK-END TRAIN WILL

Saturday Night Train from St. Paul
Has Proven to Be a Profitable
Word comes from St Paul to G.
A. Walker, local agent for the M. &

that the head officials of the N. P.
and M. & I. railways have decided to
continue the week-end train service
from St. Paul to International Falls.
This will be pleasing news to the
residents of the different towns north
from Brainerd, as the commercial
clubs of Bemidji and other places

train would prove a paying venture.

Sleeping cars were provided, where

The train has enjoyed a splendid
patronage, which has induced the
railroad companies to continue the
service during the month of August.
This week-end train was secured
as a result of a concerted effort. on
the part of Bemidji and other com
mercial clubs requesting a daily
night train on the M. & I. and N.
P. to the Twin cities. The railroad
companies did not see their way
clear to install' a daily night train
so put on the week-end train (running
out of St. Paul Saturday night and
returning Monday morning) as a
sort of compromise with the demand
for a night train.

J. P. Lahr of this city, deputy
coroner of Beltrami county, has
returned from Spooner, where he
went two days ago in response to a
telegram stating that the body of an
unknown man had been found in the
Rainy river at Spoonerevidently a
case of suicide.
Mr. Lahr states that the body
was that of Ole Norjora, aged 21
years, and it is believed that he was
drowned while attempting to take a
bath in the river, and while deler
ious with an attack of fever.
Norjora, who had been working
in the sawmill at Spooner, had been
sick with typhoid fever for nearly
two weeks. He was able to be out
of his bed and walk around the house
last Saturday, and seemed much
better than at any time since he
was taken ill. However, his phy
sician had cautioned Norjora to
stay in his room, where he had been
provided with everything necessary
for his comfort.
Norjora retired to his bed at about
9 o'clock that evening, and was
