real progressiveness of the
citizens generally of the land
office town. Murray is a firm
friend of Cass Lake and her
people, and his friends here only
like to joke him occasionally about

"Poor Lo" gets little sympathy in
the saloons of this city, these days,
and the places where he was wont to
bask in the heat occasionally have
closed their doors on the red man or
any person having Indian blood
coursing through his veins. The
saloon men of Bemidji have had
large placards printed, which are
posted in a conspicuous place, for
bidding the buying or selling of
liquor to persons of Indian blood
and all dealers have agreed to sell
no liquor to any person unless they
are absolutely certain that the per
son desiring the liquor is not of
Indian blood. This co operation on
the part of the liquor dealers to
assist the federal authorities in stop
ping the sale of liquor to Indians
will in a great measure have much
to do with the prolongation of the
liquor traffic in Bemidji.
