Spooner, an Unique Village.
Speaking of exclusiveness, the vil
lage of Spooner boasts the only wo
man editor in the county and of the
fact that it has neither a church nor
a preacher. Perhaps the first does
away with the need of the second.
At any rate, we know Spooner vil
lage is not a dead one.
Which Site ii Beat?
The opportunity the Pioneer ia
giving the people of Bemidji to ex
press their ideas on the location of
the federal building is being used
by many and the results of the vote
to date are surprising. The first
of the week, there appeared to be a
general demand from the business
men for the location of the postofflco
down town and the-Qdd bellows' cor
ner seemed to be preferred.
As soon as the people were-given
an opportunity to express themselves,
it was seen that there is a definite
demand from and a concerted effort
on the part of the people living west
of Minnesota avenue and north of
Fourth street to have the building
located either on the north-east cor
ner of America and Fourth or the
south-east corner of Minnesota and
A ballot is printed in this issue.

attached to each ballot for if they
are not signed, the box may be stuffed
in favor of one locality. This straw
vote is to give every one an oppor

Huerta, A Second Brutus.
Huerta, the provisional president
of Mexico, is fifty-six years of ago
and has been brought up under the
influence of the old Diaz regime.
Diaz ruled with a rod of iron and in
truth kept order with a mailed fiist.
His men were instructed to take no
prisoners and revolutions were met
with hot lead.
Huerta was one of his generals. He
came into favor at the time he pur
sued 8,000 rebel troops with 5,00
federals and drove the rebels i00
miles. It was Huerta who was ma
terial in keeping Diaz in the presi
dency so long. When it was seen
that Madero was about to succeed,1
Huerta was advised to go over to the'
Ten days ago, Huerta was the,
trusted general and advisor of Ma
dero. Today he is looked upon as the
man responsible for the death of
his superior and friend. With blood
stained hands, he asks the United
States to "shake". What confidence
can the epople' of Mexico and the
people of the outside world place in
such a man?
His fate remains to be seen. It
is quite possible that another revolu
tion will sweep him away as he swept
The Roadhouse Bill.
Tuesday afternoon the house
adopted the O'Neill roadhouse bill by
a vote of 85 to 26. The bill prohibits
the licensing of saloons outside of
incorporated villages or cities and
in the cities, puts the license grant
up to the city council. The road
house bill was defeated in 1911.
The O'Neill bill strikes at the root
of an evil which has been especially
bad in the timbered sections of Nor
thern Minnesota for many years, and
the senate will do well if it follows
the house and passes the bill. The
right of town officers- and county
commissioners to license ealoons is
responsible for the toiany roadhouses
which are scattered over Northern
In the timber eountry, where the
lumber jacks are numarbne and' trade
with them brisk, it is almost impossi
ble for a town board to refuse the
granting of a saloon license. The
pressure brought to bear cannot he
understood by a man who has never
been in that position. As a conse
quence, here and there are outlying
saloons and roadhouses, far from
any overseeing eye and where vice
For some time such a place has
existed about twenty-five miles north
of Bemidji. It has been a thorn in
the flesh of the Indian department
for the department has said that In
dians have been furnished with cheap
whiskey there. It has been a
cause of trouble to the lumber com
panies for the men have become
drunk and unfitted for work. It is
such places as this that the. bill
will wipe out.
Let the senate pass the bill and
complete the good work.

Since the old-fashioned theory o cur

salves have been tried for skin diseases.
But it has been found that these salves

where the eczema germs are lodged.

France In 1789.
In France, at the close fi the eight
eenth century, the privileged classes
counted 260,000 persons. Of these
140,000 were' nobles 130 clergy of
about 30,000 noble families 23,000
monks, in 2,500 monasteries 37,000
nuns in 1,^0 convents, and 60,000
curates, vicars, etc. The soil of France
was divided as follows: One-fifth to
the crown, two-fifths to the people,
one-fifth to the nobles and one fifth
to the clergy. Deducting the public
land, one-half belonged to the privi
leged classes, and all the taxes for
the support of the nation came from
the two-fifth belonging to the people.
