The Lake Shore.
Under the supervision of Street
Commissioner Carter, the park on the
Lake shore at the foot of Third street
is being made a thing of beauty.
Steps are being built in the middle
of the retaining wall so that it will
not be necessary to jump the wall
and tramp through flower beds to get
to the boat houses. Crews from the
lumber companies have been picking
out the logs from in front of the park
and in another two weeks, it will
be one of the prettiest spots in the
To Pave the Nymore Road.
From the steps taken at the joint
meeting of the Commercial club and
council committees last night, it ap
pears probable that in the near fu
ture the road from Bemidji to Ny
more will be paved as far as the city
limits. This step will be one of the
most important taken by Bemidji in
The condition of that road has been
a bug bear year after year. Each
spring a few hundred dollars have
been spent on the road and the next
there has been nothing to show for
the money. A good pavement will
make a highway that will allow the
hauling of maximum loads and if
laid properly, will not be calling for
repairs eaeh year.
A paved street from the M. and I
freight depot to the city limits, con
necting with the downtown pave
ments on Bemidji avenue will make
a highway that will be the best built
artery for travel into the city. In
cidentally, it will eventually be a
part of the trunk road from the twin
cities north. In case a special elec
tion is called, the bonds should be
Fight for Nelson's Seat.
With Senator Knute Nelson silent
as to whether or not he will be a
candidate for re-election^ to the
United States senate, others with
senatorial ambitions are busily map
ping out the state and laying their
wires for a campaign which may
On Tuesday, James A. Peterson, of
.Minneapolis, announced that he will
file for the office of United States
senator to succeed Senator Nelson.
Today word reached the Pioneer
through authentic sources, that Con
gressman Lindberg, who is spoken
of as the original progressive of
Minnesota, will also file for the nom
ination. The nominee will be de
cided under the Keefe law primaries
Whether or not Senator Nelson is
a candidate for re-election, the state
will see a merry fight before the pri
maries if both Lindberg and Peterson
get in the race. Lindberg is a pro
gressive, but has been close to Roose
velt in the campaign the latter is
making for the presidential nomina
tion from the Republican party. It
appears to be generally believed
that Lindberg would make a strong
candidate for the support of the
Roosevelt men in the state. Lind
berg has a strong congressional rec
ord on which to stand.
On the other hand, Peterson has
also been known as a progressive
but has been in the LaFollette ranks
and stumped for LaFollette principles
i nthe recent state campaign: He
has a record as city attorney of Min
neapolis and served in the state leg
islature in 1901 and 1902. In his
file for the nomination, Peterson said
that he would make public his views
in detail at a future time.
Both men are good and either
would make a worthy senator.
