There is a very uneasy feeling
in business circles in the east
and the confidence which prevails
in the west is not found after
passing Chicago to the east. The
west is less affected by the finan
cial condition of the east than
ever before. The independence
of the west is a matter for con
gratulation but it is not to be
forgotton that panicky times in
the east are sure to have its
sympathetic effect with us.
There is good reason to believe
that business will not flourish at
the full tide in the east until after
the next presidential election for
the present depression has un
doubtedly been brought about by
wall street in its campaign
against President Eoosevelt. The
unfortunate business conditions
prevailing east of Chicago are
without question purely the ef
fect of politics and the monied
men of the east will sacrifice
business to almost any extent to
compass Roosevelt's defeat.

H. W. BAILEY,
To the Public: I feel very sorry
and would ask the people of Be
midji to forgive me for the part I
took in the organization of the
Washington League, and if any
one was deceived through my ef
forts itwas because I was myself
deceived. As soon as I found out
that sixteen lodges could not
operate in thirty five states I
withdrew with thirteen persons
ready to write up. If I can be
forgiven I will promise to never
take up with any other concern
of the kind built on the ruins of
some other fake. People would
do well to inquire into the com
position of any order that is in
process of experiment. Save the
money, and many timee they
might save themselves the
trouble of getting up against a
fake. There are many good
orders that are tried and true,
and it would be better to drop all
new experiments. But the old
aphorism is to the effect that the
American people love to be hum

mountain, 5,800 feet, and from that
point in a somewhat curved line
across the head of the glaciers to
Mount Fairweather. This places the
Canadian outpost on the upper water

Geese in Bemidji Lake.
A large flock of wild geese
I stopped at Bemidji Lake last
night and attracted considerable
i I attention throughout the night
by the incessant din which they
I kept up. The flight arrived
shortly after dark and seemed to
be much confused by the electric
lights. They finally settled in
the lake and trom the noise they
made were evidently a very
large flock. They resumed their
southward journey at an early
hour this morning.
