built, the members of the county
board of Ramsey county having
visited Bemidji recently and inspect
ed the Beltrami county jail, and they
desired to build a similar jail.
An important action taken by the
board was the adoption of a resolu
tion requiring Frank Chapman,
supervisor of assessments, to report
to the board as found on May 1,
1909, all logs, lumber, cedar poles
and posts, etc., along the M. & I.,
M. R. L. & M., the Wilton Spur
and the Canadian Northern railways
within the county.
The board voted to officially estab
lish State Road No. 4, which would
commence at the southwest corner
of Section 9, Town of Northern, and
extending in a northeasterly direc
tion through the villages of Turtle
River, Farley, Tenstrike and Black
duck and thence straight north to
and terminating at the village of
Spooner on the Canadian boundary
line. It is understood that at pres
ent there is no intention of spending I
any other than state funds on this
proposed road. i
A letter was read by the auditor I
from Patrick J. Lynch, assistant
county attorney of St. Louis county,
in which the latter stated that he
had been instructed to take legal
steps to collect a bill against Bel
trami county, whereby St. Louis
cla imed the sum of $29.05 for the
committment of Andrew Mock, in
sane, whom it was claimed was a
resident of this countv. The letter
was tabled, and it was the opinion
of the board that Mr. Lynch be al
owed to take such legal steps as he
County Auditor Wilmann read a
communication from the State High
way commission, in which it was
stated that the commission had
allotted the sum of $1853 for the
year beginning July 1, 1909, and
ending July 1, 1910, there being
$353 which was left from last year.
In the use of this money it is always
necessary for the county to expend
twice the amount furnished by the
It is stated in the letter from the
commission that the sum allotted to
Beltrami county is the maximum
amount allowed any county.
The county attorney submitted a
written communication relative to
several accounts that have "hung
fire." The communication was a
lengthy epistle, and will be given in
part in tomorrow's Pioneer.
The board reconvened this after
noon and was busy with bills and
communications, it being the inten
tion of Chairman Danaher to finish
the business either before 6 o'clock
or complete the work with an even
ing session and adjourn tonight.

NOTORIOUS POT HUNTER
FINED AT GRAND RAPIDS
Game Warden Jesse Harry "Landed"
"Bill" Noble of Third River.
Killed Cow Moose.
William F. Noble of Third river
(near Blackduck) was yesterday
convicted, at Grand Rapids, of a
serious violation of the game laws of
the state and was given a heavy fine
and costs, in lieu of the payment of
which he is now an inmate of the
Itasca county jail, with prospects of
remaining there for seventy five
days, the jail sentence imposed by
Noble is an old offender against
the game laws, and he has always
managed to escape punishment, it
being alleged that he was given
assistance by people living in Black
duck to whom he sold venison and
moose meat. He has lived for sev-
eral years on Third river, about
seventeen miles southeast of Black
duck, and has always hunted big
game, in and out of season, using
two or three dogs, and selling the
meat at Blackduck and other points.
Noble had a system of protection
that' insured his safety, although
several of the best wardens in the
employ of the State Game and Fish
Commission were sent to cause
his arrest and conviction. Of late,
Jesse Harry, a Grand Rapids war
den of the state commission, has
been working in the Third river
country and has secured several
convictions of reckless hunters and
game dealers there, and he has been
waiting a favorable opportunity to
The opportunity to convict Noble
came a few days ago, when Mr.
Harry was able to get positive,
undisputable evidence that Noble
had killed a cow moose on July 6,
1907, and he caused the arrest of
the Third river pot hunter, taking
him to Grand Rapids for trial.
Noble was arraigned before Justice
Kearney at Grand Rapids yesterday,
where he was convicted by a jury of
killing the cow moose and Justice
Kearney fined him $75 and costs,
in all to $168.55, or in
default of payment thereof, to serve
seventy-five days in the county jail.
Noble was unable to furnish the
amount of the fine yesterday and was
held in jail, awaiting the payment of
Jesse Harry is entitled to great
credit in "landing" Noble and secur
ing his conviction. Noble is one of
the worst pot hunters in the state,
and his conviction will be good
news to all who desire to protect the
big game of the northern woods,
and stop traffic in moose meat and
Republican Leader More Ag
DEBATE ON TARIFF BILL
Chairman of Ways and Means Com
mittee Becomes Highly Indignant
When Asked if the Measure, Taken
as a Whole, Was Not "Revision Up
ward"Says Duties on Luxuries Are
Increased as They Ought to Be.
Washington, March 24.When the
house met there was a slim attend
ance of members, which led Mr. Ma
con (Ark.) to suggest the absence of
a quorum. As Mr. Payne was to con
tinue his explanation of the tariff bill
the Arkansas member said he should
be given a full hearing. The point
was not pressed, however, and Mr.
Payne took the floor.
No sooner had Mr. Payne begun
than he was plied with questions from
aU^sides. Again he was asked, .this
time by Mr. Moore (Pa.), if there
would be an opportunity to offer
amendments to the bill in the house,
"or," Mr. Moore added, "must we look
elsewhere?" meaning the senate.
"That," replied Mr. Payne, "is en
tirely in the* judgment of the house
and in its control." All he was seek
ing to do, he said, was to finish his
speech and to him it seemed an im
In his replies to questions Mr,
Payne was decidedly more aggressive.
He became highly indignant when Mr.
Garrett (Tenn.) inquired if, taking the
bill as a whole, it was not "revision
"The gentleman has no right to say
that," the Republican leader sharply
announced. "It is not fair to say that
as an honorable man." With a good
deal of emphasis he deolared that,
taken as a whole, the revision was
downward, but as to luxuries it was,
he said, revision upward and ought to
be. He said that any intelligent man
could understand by reading the bill
its general trend and he charged that
the idea of interpellating such a re
mark as that made by Mr. Garrett
was not fair to me, to the committee
nor to the country,"
Sharp Colloquy on Hides.
An instant later Mr. Payne had a
sharp colloquy with Mr. Garner
(Tex.), who asked for an explanation
regarding free hides.
"I will get to hides," said Mr. Payne,
hotly. "I know it is a local issue with
the gentleman," said he, and he add
ed, with an unconscious pun, "I know
he will try to hide himself behind a
revenue duty in oider to meet the de
mands of those Democrats, in his dis
trict who are clamoring for a duty on
"The Democrats in my district,"
quickly retorted Mr. Garner, "are also
clamoring for free leather, free har
ness and free shoes."
Continuing Iris explanation and an
swering many questions Mr. Payne
said that the cut in the metal sched
ule would not destroy the tin plate
industry in the United States.
Mr. Payne made a general attack on
the so called hide trust and said the
"big four" packers controlled the hide
industry in the United States. Mr.
Garner asked the ways and means
chairman if he thought the removal
of the duty on hides was rendering
the farmers a real benefit.
"I do,'* replied Mr. Payne with em
While Mr. Payne was discussing
this schedule the members crowded
the aisles and well in front of the
rostrum. Frequently several ques
tions would be put by them at one
time and there was constant demand
on his attention. His good humor ap
parently had returned and he replied
to each one in turn.
ON THE RETIRED LIST
British Navy Loses Its Most
London, March 24.Great Britain
loses today the services of its most
picturesque admiral and British pri
vate life gains a figure that has been
much in the public eye in recent
years. The sailor who retires today
is Admiral Lord Charles Beresford,
who has been in the naval service
half a century.
According to the usual course of
procedure in the British navy Admiral
Beresford would not have been re
tired until 1911. His retirement now
is said to be due to his lack of sym-
pathy with the admiralty and the de
sire of the naval authorities to group
the channel squadron, which he has
commanded, with the main fleet un
der the command of Vice Admiral
Lord Beresford's friends believe
that he has been forced out of the
navy by the faction that follows Sir
John Fisher, first lord of the ad
miralty, with whom he has recently
waged a constant strife.
The press is showing much interest
as to whether Lord Beresford will
stand for parliament, as he has done
before, and debate naval policies.
Admiral Beresford has visited Amer
ica frequently and has many friends

Results of His TripSuccessful Out
come Announced In London by the
Pall Mall Gazette.
London, March 24.Information has
reached London, according to the Pall
Mall Gazette, that the Antarctic ex
pedition under Lieutenant Ernest H.
Shackleton of the British navy, which
left England in July, 1907, reached the
The secretary of ths Royal Geo
graphical society said that he had no
information as to Lieutenant Shackle
ton's success, but this does not dis
prove the statement, s it is known
that Lieutenant Shackleton contracted
to furnish the first news regarding his
explorations to London newspapers.
It is considered significant here
that Lieutenant Shackleton, when he
came ashore at Invercargill, N. Z., re
fused all information regarding the
details of his exploration. He at once
went to the cable office and dis
patched a message. He looked the
picture of health and intimated that
all his comrades were well.
Lieutenant Shackleton's expedition
bade farewell to England at Cowes in
July of 1907. The last visitors to his
ship, the Nimrod, were King Edward
and Queen Alexandra. His majesty
presented the lieutenant with a Un
ion Jack, to which was attached a
card bearing the message:
"May this Union Jack, which I en
trust to your keeping, lead you safely
to the South pole."
DECLINES TO DISCUSS TRIP
Shackleton's Expedition Arrives at In
vercargill, N. Z.
Invercargill, N. Z., March 24.The
barkentine Nimrod, which early in
1908 took Lieutenant E. H. Shackle
ton's Antarctic expedition to the
South, called here on her return.
Lieutenant Shackleton declined to
make any statement regarding his ex
plorations. The Nimrod later left for
Lyttelton, the port of Christ Church,
In July, 1907, the Nimrod, com
manded by Lieutenant Shackleton and
carrying thirty-two men, including sci
entists, sailed from England for the
Antarctic region, touching later at
New Zealand to complete her provi
sions. Later an exploration party of
twelve men, provisioned for two years
and provided with Siberian ponies and
dogs, was left in camp at Mount Ere
bus and last December the Nimrod
left New Zealand to pick up the ex
plorers and return them to England.
Lieutenant Shackleton has had ex
perience as an Arctic explorer as a
member of expeditions under Captain
Scott in 1902-3.
RATE ON GRAIN IS REDUCED
Cut of 1i/2 Cents a Bushel Prom Buf
falo to New York.
New York, March 24.Rates from
Buffalo to New York on grain for ex
port have been cut from 5% cents to
4 cents per bushel. This reduction
follows a protest made by the Newat
York Produce Exchange, which
claimed that this port was being dis
criminated against in favor of Mon
treal and other Canadian points. The
reduction takes effect April 26 andthat
will continue for at least sixty days.
It is understood that the Delaware,
Lackawanna and Western railroad
Was the first system running into New
York to cut the rate and all of the
other roads have filed similar sched
ules with the interstate commerce

wars, died at the Confederate home as
the result of a fist blow by "Jim"

which is-opposed to the provisions of

ther developments before taking any

MINISTER KILLS ANOTHER
Missouri Divines Quarrel Over Busi
Lebanon, Mo., March 24.At Russ,
a remote town in Laclede county,
Rev. Martin D. Johnson, aged forty,
shot and killed Rev. Solomon Odell,
aged forty-six. Johnson is the Bap
tist minister of the neighborhood,
while Odell was the Presbyterian

Telephone company, a rival concern.
A meeting was held in the postoffice
Russ looking to a combination of
the two concerns. Johnson says that
Odell made a remark about him in the
meeting. Later they met on the

they should settle their differ
ences then. Odell agreed and was
removing his coat when Johnson drew
his revplver and fired the fatal shot.
Johnson then fled. Later, however, he
returned and gave himself up.
