The Cass Lake Voice comes out
with a whole page advertisement
of the opening of the new laud
office at that place, and makes a
lot of fun of Congressman Steen

moved to Bemidji. The Voice
thinks that Mr. Steenerson can
not make a success of his effort.
But the Voice Editor has evi

to geography, or he would see

There is a great deal of differ
ence between Bemidji amd Cass
Lake. Bemidji has more than
twice the population of Cass Lake
and is a very pleasant place to
visit or to live. I is the metrop
olis of northern central Minne
sota, the finest city between Du
luth and Crookston, and has
about twenty hotels. I is the!
only railroad center in th-e dis-i
trict with railroads to all the car
dinal points of the compass. I
has six regular passenger trains
per day more than amy other
point in the district. I has
direct railroad connection with
every county in the district, with
out change of ears.
Bemidji has more wagon roads
radiating into all parts of the new
district than Cass Lafee could get
in a thousand years. SThree
fourths of the vacant land in the
new district is nearer to iBemidji
by railroad or wagon road than
to any other city or village in the
district. All of northerns. Beltra
mi county and northern Itasca
county will have to pay additional
fare to get to Cass Lake, and the
same is true of northern Hub
Every settler and *very busi
ness man along the Aine of the
Minnesota and International rail
road ought to set up a howl that
would be heard clear to Washing
ton for the removal of the office
to Bemidji. This should not be
considered a fight bet-ween Cass
Lake and Bemidji. but a fight for
the accommodation of the people
who will have business to trans
act at tne land oitice.

necessary to have no more than a

larger vote from being east. If

earlier there would have doubt
