THE DAILY PIONEER.
EDWARD KAISER.. Publisher
Entered In the postoflice at
Ken lidji as
PUBLISHED EVERY AFTERNOON.
Official County and City Paper.
THE PIONEERlooking to the
best interests of the people of
this section and more particular
ly to the upbuilding of Bemidji
and Beltrami county, has, after a
careful survery of the situation
considered the time ripe for es-'
tablishing an afternoon daily.
In launching THE DAILY PIO
we owe our readers an ex
Beltrami county, and, in fact,
this whole northern country has
enjoyed a phenomenal growth
and it will be no short lived boom.
We have every advantage heres
and northern Minnesota is bound
to become the most prosperous
section in the country. It has
always been the endeavor of THE
PIONEER to keep abreast of the
times, but find our weekly facili
ties inadequate to the needs of
the town, and have decided to is
sue a paper every afternoon.
We propose to make THE DAI-
LY PIONEER win. To publish a
snappy up-to-date afternoon dai
ly. To publish the newsand
all the newsand to put in our
best licks for Bemidji and Bel
The Minneapolis Journal of
last week had the following start
ling headlines on the subject of
the merger decision:
"They cannot be forced to fight.
Even tho the merger decision is
affirmed the Great Northern and
Northern Pacific will never re
turn to warlike competition. The
stocks of the companies will not
be affected because the foolish
ness of destructive competition
has been demonstrated by the
few years of operation under co
operation. 'The form of North
ern Securities may go out of ex
istence, but the substance of it
will remain.''- A wall street view
of the matter."
The St. Paul Globe of Sunday
contained the following interview
with James J. Hill in New York
"The beauty of that ship is
this: As compared with any
other cargo carrier on the Pa
cific she carriesfiveextra cargoes
at an extra cost of opera
tion of only one. The
significance of this appears from
this: Taking the average cargo
of a Pacific carrier at 4500 tons,
the Minnesota carries five extra
cargoes, or 27,000 long tons, dead
weight but the five extra cargoes
add to the cost of operation only
that of one cargo. In other words,
the 27,000 tons are carried by
the Minnesota at the cost of 9,-
000 tons by other Pacific carriers
or at least one-third of the net
cost per ton of cargo.
"Mhe upshot of this is that the
Great Northern transportation
system, including both by land
and sea facilities, will be able to
make rates on Oriental traffic
hitnerto unknown and do it prof
itably at rates that would be a
loss to other transportation com
panies. We thereby will be in
position to insure our giant
steamships, with their 100 train
load capacities, full cargoes. We
will be able to develop an Orient
al commerce of heavy tonnage
and make Puget sound the gate
way to tfoe Orient.
"Won't Drop That Bundle"
"In my speech at the London
shipyards I called attention to
the fact that today when any for
eign vessel enters any harbor and
sees us with a bundle of freight
and shouts 'Drop that bundle!'
we promptly drop it. I don't
want "to be told to drop any bun
dle, and I now give notice that I
will not drop any.
"Equipped with two steamships
that together have the cargo ca
pacity of a fleet of a dozen ordi
nary Pacific carriers and of two
hundred railway freight trains,
we will be able to take care of
our bundles. If a rate of $8 per
ton from the Mississippi valley
to the Orient on flour, steel rails
and provisions, which is half of
the lowest former rates, will se
cure bundles, we will command
aplenty. From Minneapolis alone
during the past ninety days these
rates have secured 30,000 tons of
flour and other farm and mill
products for the Orient."

APES SING IN CONCERT.
African Traveler Tells of a Remark
In the Zoological garden at Berlin
may be seen a curious-looking ape. It
ts a member of the species known as
Herr Schilling, an African traveler,
shot It near Kilmandscharo, in Ger
man East Africa, but the animal was
not badly wounded, and he soon suc
ceeded in restoring it to health.
This is the first adult "guereza"
which has ever been seen in captiv
ity in Europe. Three young apes of
a somewhat similar type, whose home
is in Abyssinia, were captured some
time ago. but died very soon after
they were photographed.
An interesting fact about the "gue
rezas" is that they hold a regular con
certain their native woods every night,
which,, while not very musical, since
it consists merely of a succession of
growls, produces a startling effect on
those who hear it for the first time.
UNCLE SAM'S PENSION ROLLS.
How the Vast Sums Are Paid Through
out the Country.
Some idea of the vastness of the
funds paid out at the various pension
agencies throughout the country
every three months is given in a requi
sition Just forwarded by the secretary
of the interior to the secretary of the
treasury. The requisition calls for an
aggregate of $10,955,000, and is to be
paid to small armies of veterans from
half a dozen of the agencies during
the first week in March. Payments
are made at each agency quarterly,
but for convenience sake the agencies
are divided into three groups, each
group paying off on a different month.
Following are the figures for March:
Boston, Mass., $1,840,000 Augusta,
Me., $700,000 Washington, D. C, $1,
910,000 Columbus, Ohio, $3,750,000
San Francisco, Cal., $1,155,000 De
troit, Mich., $1,600,000.
Time Brings Changes.
"Well, dearest," he wrote, "it is
the old, old story, this story of love,
the divine music of the heart. It is
the basis of all the world's poetry ^nd
song we never grow tired of it. or
desire any change in its mrin fea
tures. I can come as near describing
my delight in getting your letter as
in describing the fragrance of the
rose or the beauty of a sunset Each
word you write takes on a new mean

clusters around the little incidents of
our acquaintance the sweetest, ten
derest memories. I lookI see your
face. I look forward and it is there
it is entwined in every hope, wrapped
up la every joy." And now she is
suing him tor breach of promise!
She Wanted to Know.
A Chicago dentist tells this story:
"Some years ago a young woman re
cently from the Emerald isle called at
my office to have some dental work
done. I examined her teeth and found
that among them was one so badly
wasted tiiat it was not worth fliUnj* I
told her this. 'How long,' she asked.
'do you think it would last If it wer-.5
filled?' 'I have no idea,' I rep'ied
'Not very long, anyway.* 'Weil, how
long do you think?' she persisted,
cannot say,' I returned. 'I would not
guarantee for any length of time.'
Stitt wxious and determined to secure
a ftmrable and definite answsir, she
asked: 'Will it last longer thr^i you
think it will?'"
