BELTRAMI COUNTY SALOONS ILLEGAL
The smirks and smiles which last January adorned the faces of the
^advocates of liquor in Beltrami county, when they heard of the decision
of Judge C. W. Stanton which declared the county wet, will now be
wiped from their sneering countenances by the decision of the Supreme
Court of the State of Minnesota which declares that Beltrami county was
legally voted dry at the local option election held in 1916 and that since
that date every booze joint in the county has been doing an illegal business.
The Supreme court reverted the decision of Judge Stanton and in
doing so substantiated Its treasons in detail.
It simply means that BOOZE WAS LEGALLY VOTED OUT OF BEL-
The flrys carried the case to the Supreme court of -the state. On the
Supreme court bench of Minnesota is Chief Justice Calvin S. Brown,
father of City Attorney M. J. Brown of Bemidji. Justice 3rown was not
Allowed by virtue of the situation to appear in the catae in any manner
nor allowed to participate in the decision of the Supreme court.
B00ZE GANG HEEDS DISINFECTANT
The days of the reign of the old booze gang in Beltrami county is
past. It has been past some time. It is so dead it needs a disinfectant
to get near its putrid cohorts. The large majority of the people of Bel-
trami county don't propose for a minute to stand for any more of that
old Totten game of dirty booze politics than they propose to sign a treaty
with a rattlesnake. And at that the rattlesnake is a gentleman compared
to some of that outfit which arrogates to itself the- political pull and
prestige which they claim allows it to run at large. Why, a rattlesnake
even gives warning before an attack but the gumshoe brigade Buch as
sneaks around, using the cloaks of any hue to suit the occasion would
not only steal the pennies from from a dead man's eyes but would kick
the corpse because the peonies weren't $10 gold pieces.
ASK SUPREME COURT TO APOLOGIZE
And now we suppose the Pioneer will be asked to apologize for stat-
ing that the Supreme court of Minnesota declared the booze joints were
running illegally in Beltrami county. Ask the Supreme court to apolo-
gize, you who seem to be laboring under the impression that the majority
4 the people of Beltrami county are going to accept the mandates of a
tew who believe they are all powerful and that no one dare to open their
mouth in -giving -voice to their opiakme.
In a case just decided in the United States district court at Minne-
apolis, Judge Wilbur Booth held the Public Safety Commission of Min-
nesota was clothed with authority. The man who made the kick was a
saloon keeper who, together with others, had been ordered to close their
places at 10 instead of 11 o'clock at night as a war precaution for the
public safety. This patriotic booze vendor couldn't for the life of him
aee any sense in the Public Safety Commission's action, but he know}
now for the United States court told him.
When Beltrami was declared wet there was a horde than ran their
ankles hot getting up Baudette and Spooner way and a lot of "clubs"
sprung into being and flourished like a green bay tree. And take it from
the public the booze emporiums went the limit and then some. Some of
them couldn't even stop at illegal booze Belling.
That political pull that has been so long flaunted around here is just
about ready to fray out. The people of this vicinity and Beltrami county
are going to see to it that a lot of this old time bunk is cut out and they
don't recognize any political crumb grabber in the program as outlined,
We were slowly meandering toward homeward last night. It was
rather late. A lkce curtain in a window of the second story of an im-
posing residence was blown aside by a sudden gust anda young lady
was caught in the draft.
