Jintered In the postoffioe at Beinld.il, Minn., as second class matter. official County, and City Papep SUBSCRIPTION $5 PER YEAR THE Minneapolis Journal, chief apologist for the shifty tricks of the state central committee in its effort to fix things for Judge Collins, explains that it does not matter/that the committee se lected the vote for McKinley of four years ago "rather than the vote for Van Sant two years ago as the basis for the selection of delegates to the state convention only a few of the counties in the northern part of the state suffer thereby, counties which have grown rapidly in the past four years, counties where Dunn is strong because of the many services he has rendered the set- Tiers.~~NatufaUyJPhTs actum of the committee seems right and proper in the eyes of the Journal. A FARMERS' institute will be held in Bemidji July 2, the insti tute being one of a series now being held at various points throughout northwestern Minne sota. At tho institute held here two years ago there was a big at tendance and a meeting is planned for this year. Some of the ablest instructors in the country have been secured for the series of institutes and those that have been held thus far have been largely attended. In order that Beltrami county may hold its own as well as that the individual farmer may reap a profit farmers of the county should turn out en masse to the institute. SIXTY three thousnd acres of agricultural lands on the Chip pewa reservation were thrown open to settlement today. In order to get these lands the set tler must actually live on them for five years. This opportunity is not for the speculator and if all lands opened for settlement in northern Minnesota had been offered on the same plan north ern Minnesota would have a larger population today than it has.. The lands opened today can be-obtained only by living upon them and by working them. Not another acre of the public domain should be offered for sale hereafter under any other plan. WITH or without Hennepin county the nomination of Dunn for governor by the republicans of Minnesota appears to be a fore gone conclusion. Every item of political news one hears these days goes to show how hopeless* is the opposition to Dunn. In stance the recent story from the Collins headquarters that if Dunn is beaten it will have to be by a combination of Collins, Eustis and Eddy and-the-assertion that if it comes to the last ditcli the combination will be made. It had better be made at oncer then for opposition to Dunn has cer-MeCarty tainlv reached the last ditch. SINCK James J. Hill frankly acknowledged that he was solici ted to contribute $25,000 to Judge Collins' campaign fund the judge's friends have been back ward" about boasting themselves the only realy truly merger busters.

Advertise in tho Daily Pioneer IT Nearly a Hundred Land Seekers Pa&cd Last Nijjht In Line at Cass Lake. Cass Lake, Jaune 15.When th land office opened this morn ing at 9 o'clock nearly one hun dred men were in line and had stood in line all through a vry chilly night in-order to obtainthe land they desire. Some oi them had stood in line sjHico Sac day evening. Several of those who took their places in line Sunday eveuing sold their rights, one man receiving $")0 for his place. The people of Cass Lake who fought desperately for two years for the passage of the Morris Chippewa bill for the opening to settlement of the agricultural lands on the reservation are watching this openingof thelands with considerable satisfaction. When the land office opened for filings this morning it lacked but three days of two years since the Morris bill passed congress, the exact date having been June \H, lf)02. Since that time the timber on the reservation has been esti mated and classified, and two sales of the pine have been made, with a third to be made during the month of November, this year. That there will be many claim ants for every piece of the land that will be open for entry is cer tain, as there are not a very large number of claims in the whole amount offered. There were just 110 people in line when the land-office opened its doors this morning. Daniel Caldwell, of Iron River, Wis., made the first entry for lot 7, w4 sw| sei sw|, sec 4, town 1-18, range 28.. During the first half hour after the office opened twenty-three entries were made and the entries were all over this afternoon. There were few con flicting entries and in each case the applicant was accorded the opportunity of a second and third choice before he left the window. Most of the land taken is near Round Lake. There are some filings on land in the vi cinity of the new town of Wil kinson. BONDS DEFEATED Special Election Held In Clear water County Yesterday Speaks Decisively.
