HE WANTS TO RESIGN
Gives as a Reason That Duties
Interferes With His Regular
At thecouncil meeting last
night Trustee ~W. N. Bowser sur
prised the others present by
handing in his resignation. No
excuse was given for his action,
other than that his duties as a
city father interfered to too
great an extent with his regular
mercantile business. He says
that he oannot properly attend to
both his store and the duties con
nected with his office of trustee
at the same time. The resigna
tion was laid on the tableland will
be acted upon at the meeting
next Monday night.
Mr. Bowser was elected to the
position at the regular election
last March, and has since acted
in complete harmony with the
rest of the council. It has been
remarked that those who hold the
reins of the town's government
in their hands have been unusu
In an interview this morning
Mr. Bowser said: I have no other
reason to give for handing in my
resignation other than that I
cannot devote the proper atten
tion to the office and at the same
time run my business here as it
should be run. I have nothing
whatever against my brother
members, the president or any
one connected with the town gov
ernment. We have always worked
Besides Mr. Bowser's resig
nation nothing of very great im
portance came up at the meeting

asking for an extension of Be

the table. Before the next meet

will be investigated.

NIES THAT HE EVER AGREED
TO THE LOCATION
OF THE NEW LAND OFFICE AT
CASS LAKE-BRANDS THE
STORY AS FALSEHOOD.
Representative From Ninth Re-
turns From Washington, Where
He Argued Land Office Location
Congressman Halvor Steener
son returned from Washington
Sunday morning, where he had
gone to look after the location of
the new land ofrice at Bemidji
rather than at Cass Lake, accord
ing to the present program. He
was very wroth relative to the
story which is going the rounds
to the effect that he agreed tojbhe
location of the office at Cass Lake
at a conference of the Minne
sota delegation last March.
"The story that is being told
around that I agreed to the loca
tion of the new land office at Cass
Lake last spring at the confer
ence of the Minnesota delegation
at Washington and then went
back on that agreement is an un
qualified falsehood. I never
agreed to the location of the office
at Cass Lake* and Bernard^
Buckman or anyone else who was
there and says so tells what he
knows is not true. What I did
agree to was the boundaries of
the proposed district and noth
"I went before the secretary
of the interior department this
trip and argued for the location
of the office at Bemidji. Secre
tary Hitchcock save me a very
attentive hearing. I argued the
matter for an hour or more and
he agreed to take the matter up
and give it a thorough investiga
tion. I was accompanied on my
visit to the secretary by Tarn's
Bixby and Attorney Bailey of
Bemidji. The matter will be
taken up when Commissioner
Richards of the general land
office returns from his trip to the
west. This will be on the 20th
of the present month.
"Relative to the Red Lake
reservation matter, it will be
taken up as soon as Major Mc
Laughlin's report reaches the
secretary. We are trying to
have the negotiations resumed
