POLICE CAPTURE A
John Nolin of Minneapolis
Was Arrested in Bemidji
CASH REWARD WAS OFFERED
FOR HIS CAPTURE.
Was Implicated in Robbery and
Escaped from the State
John Nolin, a young man who
escaped from the state reforma
tory, and who is badly wanted by
the Minneapolis police, was
arrested in Bemidji late yestar
day afternoon by Chief of Police
Bailey and Officer Helmer. There
is a reward of $-25
offered for the
fugitive capture. A telegram
was received from Minneapolis
last night stating that an officer
would arrive in Bemidji today
with the reward and take the
prisoner back to Minneapolis.
John Nolin, alias John Johnson,
was one of three men engaged in
a hold-up in Minneapolis more
than a year ago. They were
captured and his two confeder
ates were each sentenced to ten
years in the penitentiary. Nolin
was under age, and by playing
sick received a reform school
sentence. He escaped from the
school when he had only one,
month more to serve, and a de
tective agency in Minneapolis
has been, looking for him ever
since. Early in April a letter to
Chief Bailey, enclosing a photo
graph of the fugitive, stated that
it was thought the man was in
Bemidji, and since that time the
local officers have kept a careful
Yesterday about o'clock
Officer Helmer saw the object of
their search in an alley in the
central part of town in company
with a certain Mrs. Olson, a
rather aged lady well known to
the police. Chief Bailey was sum
moned. The man. and woman
had a team, and the officers se
cured a horse and buggy.
Nolin and his companion drove
down past the Great Northern
depot, and just as the 3:20 Vain
was pulling in the officers drove
down Minnesots avenue. Near
the depot they met the other
team driving madly north. As
it passed the officers Nolin sang
out that they could not catch
him. An exciting race followed,
which ended at Thomas New by's
livery stable. Nolin left the team
here and he and Mrs. Olson
started across country on foot,
but were caught before they had
It is said that Mrs. Olson has
frequently hidden Nolin from the
officers when he came to Be

prisoner stated that Nolin's oc

The Pioneer Proposes to Find
Sentiment of the People
on the Subject.
THERE ARE FEW WHO DO X0T
FAVOR THE MOVE.
Question Is, Should There Be a
Delay Till Xext Spring
The Daily Pioneer proposes to
find the sentiment of the people
of Bemidji in regard to incorpor
ating thovi Hago as a city. With
this object in view-interviews-with
citizens of all classes will bo pub
lished from day to day express
ing their views on "the Subject.
It is generally conceded that
every person in town, with
scarcely an exception, is of the
opinion that the village should
be so incorporated, but some
claim that the populor senti
ment favors delaying the move
until next spring. City Attorney
Russell states that the matter
will require an extra election
anyway, so that it seems there
would be no especial advantage,
as far as this point is concerned,
in the delay. On the other hand,
there appears to be more than
one advantage to the earliest
possible decision of tin* matter.
There are many in town who
do not fully understand the in
corporation proposition, and who
therefore cannot clearly and
wisely express their opinions on
it. This can hardly bo called
surprising, for there has as yet
been no full and lucid explana
tion of the project gi von t.blthe
people at large. For the benefit
of this, class there will appear in
the Daily Pioneer of Monday
next an article setting forth the
proposed move of incorporting
into a city in all its lights. Both
the advantages and disadvant
ages(should there be any such)
will be explained.
Prom now on, as space will
allow, interviews on the subject
will be published in the Daily
Pioneer until the sentiment of
the people! is proved to be either
for or against incorporating this
summer. The Daily Pioneer has
no particular interest either way,
no more than any loyal citizen of
Bemidji. The Daily Pioneer be
lieves, however, that the people
of the village are desirous of
knowing just how the matter
stands, and what the opinion of
"the other fellow" is. This is
our only reason in bringing the
Space will not admit-of more
than a few interviews appearing
P. J. Russell: I belive a ma
jority of the people of Bemidji
favor incorporating as a city but
this can only be determined by
circulating the petition" already
drafted for incorporation. The
many benefits which will accrue
to us as a city will offset more
than a hundred fold the extra
expense of a city government
Which is more imaginary than
real. Again, something should
be done in that direction before
Nymore perfects its organization
as a village.
F. N. Lang: I am most as
suredly in favor of a city in place
of the village organization. The
advantages are numerous and
disadvantages but few. It would
s-c to me that there can be no
valid objections raised against
the project and I hope that those
who have the matter in charge
will push it along. Bemidji is
pushing ahead and it is better
for us to be a small city than an
overgrown village. I know of no
reason why we cannot become a
city at the present time as well
as to wait another year.

BEMIDJI SURE O
L. H. Bailey Returned From
the Nation's Capital
ELATED OVER PROSPECT FOR
GETTING LAND OFFICE.
Emphatic in Condemning Mean
Methods Adopted by
L. 11. Bailey returned from
Washington last niu'ht highly
elated over our prospects for se-
curing the land ofliee. lie is very
emphatic in stating that the
newspaper talk to the effect that
nothing but the worst kind of
trash, meant, to bolster up Cass
Lake's winning prospects.
Speaking on the subject today,
Mr. Bailev said: "President
Roosevelt does not jockey with
anybody. He is old business it
self, and if the people of this new
land district make it known to
him and the commissioner that
they will be better accommodated
if the land office is located here
there is no doubt but that it will
be permanently located at this

"t'ass Lake has run a bluff
game from the start. She will
have to use facts and offer some
thing besides paper railroads for
the accommodation of settlers in
northern Cass county.
"The people of Beltrami county
and the new district, generally
are under great obligations to
Congressman Stoonerson for the
able light he is putting up in this
matter. Anyone who affirms that
Tains Bixby was turned down at
the department, or by the presi
dent, is talking through his hat."
Mr. Bailey appeared well
pleased with the cordial recep
tion tendered Congressman
Steenorson and himself by Presi
dent Roosevelt. They were per
sonally received by the head man
of the land, who extended every
consideration to them. Mr.
Bailey says that the president
appeared glad to reopen the land
office question when he was made
acquainted with the true facts of
the case. The Bemidji attorney
states that Bemidji is sure to get
a fair decision this time, and this
is all the people ask'.
