Will Take $500 to Have
Base Ball in Bemidji
This Summer.
Crookston Team Will Open Sea
son Here If Satisfactory Ar
rangements Arc Made.
Its up to the fans in this city
and those who are interested in
baseball to contribute $500 to_the
Northern League fund if Bemidji
is to have any baseball from the
Northern League this summer.
In a telephone message to this
city this morning W. C. Lycan,
of Crookston gave out this final
information. The league officials
know that Bemidji is a good town
and all that according to Mr.
Lycan but they must haye the
The base ball situation with re
gard to the Northern league and
Bemidji.has been in the air for
some time, but some action must
be taken at once if Bemidji
wishes to get in the game. It is
yery probable that the desired
amount of money will be raised
in the next few days. In return
for the 500-in-good-faith check
which the Northern league offi
cials want they guarantee to give
Bemidji twelve of the schedule
games" of"the league at any date
the citizens of the city shall
Owing to the condition of the
grounds at Crookston it will be
impossible for the Crookston
team to open the .season there as
had been expected and if the
necessary arrangements are
made the team will open in this
city with a series of three games
with Grand Forks, May 23, 24
and 25. A special train will be
run from Grand Forks and it is
expected that there will a large
attendance of fans from both that
city and Crookston.
Some of the strongest financial
support of the Crookston team
is not in favor of Sunday base
ball and Manager McNeil would
like to have the Crookston team
play all its Sunday games here.
The matter of raising the neces
-sar-y-money-will be taken up with
the business public at once.
Business Men's Club Takes Step
to Secure Two Excursions
From Brainerd.
The Business Men's club had
a regular session at the whist club
rooms last night. The club met
S. D. Works, who may remove a
hardwood mill plant here and
offered Mr. Works a choice of
two sites. There is every reason
to pelieve that Mr. Works will
accept one and that both his hard
wood mill and the broom handle
factory of Lang & Carter will be
removed here. The secretary of
the club was instructed to write
S. P. Adair at Brainerd and to
formally extend to the Brainerd
Elks an invitation to hold their
annual outing here this season.
Every effort will be made to en
tertain the Elks if they decide to
come. Mr. Adair was also au
thorized to extend an invitation
to the Brainerd band which is
soon to be given a benefit exenr
sion, to bring its excursion to

Miss Ethel McTaggart today
jpolled a big vote and there is an
jevidentuLeterinination on the part
of her friends to make her a win
ning candidate. Miss Spencer
also received a good vote and has
increased her lead. No votes
were received for the other can
didates from Bemidji who are
evidently content for the day to
add to their reserves.
There is evidently something
doing at Bagley, from which
place a second candidate is en
tered today in Miss Nellie M.
Brewster, a very popular young
lady of the village, who begins
with a vote of 1340 to her credit.
The announcement referred to
in yesterday's issue of the

Judge Martin Writes Bemidji
Friend That He Will Win
His Case.
Attorney Charles Scrutchin
has received a letter from Judge
Margin, formerly of this city, who
is conducting the defense of Dr.
AmesT Minneapolis," on a
charge of bribery. Mr. Martin
has charge of the doctor's case
and is assisted by a number of
the most able attorneys in St.
Paul and Minneapolis. It is
generally conceded that a strong
defense is made. Judge Martin
states that he believes the
chances to secure for Dr. Ames a
complete aquittal are excellent.
It would be a big legal victory for
Judge Martin and all his old Be
midji friends would be pleased
to see him win the case.

to Pioneer).It is not known, at
present, whom Major Scott, act

of affairs at the sub-agency. The

Bemidji next Sunday and play a
game there with the stiffest prop

scraped together to represent
that place. There will bo a large
number from here who will ac

confidence that the locals will re

Long Fight Affecting Crookston
Brainerd, St. Cloud and Fer
gus Falls Jobbers Ends.
By the withdrawal of the
.Great- Northern and Northern
Pacilic Railway Companys from
an appeal from an order of the
state Railway and Warehouse
Commission making Brainerd,
St. Cloud, Moorhead, Crookston,
and Fergus Falls distributing
points and the jobbers of Minne
sota have just won a notable
victory and one that will result
in better freight rates and fairer
competition with Twin City
Jobbers in these towns were
formerally accorded a frieght
rate that made it possible for
them to handle staple lines of all
kinds to a large northwestern
territory as cheap as the Twin
City wholesalers but the railroad
companys with drew the dis
tributing rates and a fight has
since been in progress* The
matter was taken up by the
State Railway and Warehouse
commission and an order made
for the restoration of the rate
in October 1900. The railroads
appealed and have just withdrawn
their appeal. The distrubting
rates are again effective.

Two Popular Bemidji Business
Men Celebrate Partnership
Anniversary Today.
P. J. O'Leary and W.. N. Bow
ser^ two ..of. Bemidji's. best and
mostprogressive business men
today celebrate the thisteenth an
niversary of their partnership.
Thirteen years ago today Mr.
O'Leary and Mr. Bowser formed
a partnership at West Duluth
which has never, broken up to
the present time and bids fair to
exist for many years to some.
The firm started in a small way
at New Duluth and six years ago
moved to Bemidji, where its bus
iness has grown until its store is
generally recognized as one of
the finest in Northern Minnesota.
Both Mr. O'Leary and Mr, Bow
serare popular with many Be.
midji friends and all will unite
with the Pioneer in extending
congratulations. Thirteen is
generally considered an unlucky
number but to the Pioneer this
afternoon Mr. Bowser stated
that the thirteenth year of the
firm's business career has been
one of its most prosperous. In
fact he has always noticed that
the day has been a lucky one
with the firm- and he does not
share the popular belief that it is
unlucky. The Pioneer regrets
that time and space this after
noon will not permit a atory that
would completely cover the
firm's business career. Busi
ness men of the capacity of the

credit to the city and the paper
