Detectives Give Up the Quir
ing Mystery After Weeks
of Investigation.
Weeks of Expert and Careful
Search Develop Absolutely
Noth ing
The Quiring mystery, the dis
appearance of N. O. Data and his
daughter from their homestead
is more of a mystery today after
a thorough and careful investi
gation by expert detectives hired
at the expense of the county and
put on the case than ever before.
Weeks of systematic and expert
search have resulted in nothing.
The detectives employed on the
'case admit themselves bai'lled
and County Attorney Loud is at
a loss as to how to proceed.
As soon as the facts in the case
were brought to Mr. Loud's at
tention he immediately secured
the services of a Pinkerton and
the man has been at Quiring ever
since and has left nothing un
done that might develop a clue.
Today he is unable to report any
thing that might result in un
raveling the mystery and will
return to his home 'in St, Paul
admitting that it eclipses any
thing in his experience and baf
fled his every effort to solve it.
County Attorney Loud has
exhausted every effort to bring
to light some clue. The failure
after months of vigorous work to
develop anything in the Sulli
van disappearance matter was a
disappointment to Mr. Loud and
he determined to proceed as
vigorously as possible in the pre-,
sent case. Acting under his in
struction a detective has been at
Quiring ever since the disappear
ance was reported, in fact before
any of the details were made
The detective is unable to re
port anything. His theory of the
caseis unsupported by the slight
est scrap of evidence. It is the
same as that entertained by the
public in general and by all who
are familiar with the case that
the Dahl's were murdered and
the bodies either burned in some
remote section of an adjoining
swamp or sunk in one of the
nearby lakes. Regarding the
disposition of the bodies the de
tectives inclines to the latter
He visited the Dahl cabin a
short time after the disappear
ance was lirst reported. Every
thing was found in order. There
were no traces of a strnggle in
the cabin. On one of the beds
was found some threads presum
ably from a new mackinaw jacket
and the bed was broken down.

was evidently more than one
man implicated in the murder.
It is believed that one of the men
may have enticed the father from
the house while the other at

small pond, said to be very deep
md sunk. Thefheftofa number
of ax heads from nearby logging
camps is reported about the
same time and these might have
been used for the weights. All
efforts to locate the moose wallow
of which the Quiring people tell
have so far been futile
County Attorney Ltud is ata
loss how further to proceed in
the matter. The relatives or the
Dahls will bo communicated with
and an effort will be made to have
the state offer an additional re
ward to that posted a short time
ago by the relatives. The pros
pect of bringing the murderers
to immediate justice or of the
discovery of the bodies seems at
present to be more remote than
ever. Until the bodies are found
there is no substantial clue to
proceed on.
The neighborhood gossip at
Quiring embodies a number of
rumors, all of which have been
run down without anything new
being brought to light and the
case is one of the most mystify
ing which has ever been called to
the attention of the authorities in
the northern section of the state.
Deer Destroy Gardens.
Kelliher Journal: Many of
our citizens have gone to much
trouble in gardening, but as
soon as the entire population is,
wrapt in slumber the deer appear
and nibble every thing in sight:
and still there is no prevailing law
to protect us from their nocturnal
excursions. Next winter the
gamelaw will possibly beamended
to prevent pioneers from raising
vegetables which deer seem to
relish. Enact laws to protect
deer anil the dear things will
transgress the law enacted for
the benefit of mankind.
Eagles Will Picnic.
The local aerie Fraternal Order
of Eagles plans to hold a picnic
some time during the summer.
The date has not yet boon lixed,
but the matter will probably be
taken up at the next meeting.
Tiie aerie will have several candi
dates for its next regular meet
next week.

brate atl ass Lake.
Cass Lake, .July 2.All the ar
rangements for the celebration
to be hold here on the Fourth
have been completed, and all that
now remains for the signal to
"let'er go" is the arrival of tin
day and the attending crowds.
The program as published will
be carried out, with but slight
variation. The committee is dis
appointed in one respect -the
attitude of our neighbor! over at
(Jrand Rapids. Hoth the run
ning team of the lire department
and the baseball team of that
place had agreed to come here on
the Fourth
an( participate in the
celebration. On Thursday, word
was received from the Rapids
that neither organization could
conn that both were dismem
bered. Cass Lake sent a large
delegation to the tournament and
it would have been no more than
right that a large contingent
should come here on the Fourth.
However, the committee has sub
stituted the Cass Lake baseball
team, instead of Grand Rapids,
to play against Bomidji, with the
addition of several excellent
players, the locals should give a
good account of themselves, lie
midji and Cass Lake will contest
for the prizes in the'hose race,
which are $00 to the winner and
$40 to the loser. The Bemidji
band will be here, and a
large crowd is assured from
that place, which will be
augmented by delegations from
other towns. Nothing has been
left undone, and the celebration
gives every promise of eclipsing
anything of the kind heretofore
held in Cass county. The follow
ing is the program in full:

in the events that have so far

This is the first season the
horse has been tracked and her
owner had not expected much
from her in the way of results.
The showjjig she made is of
course very gratifying. She
was entered in the 2:10 events at

and in several of the other events
she finished with the leaders.

the work of securing subscrip

was out only yesterday afternoon
but received some encourage

able to raise the desired amount
of money, An effort will be made
to have the county commissioners
make an appropriation for the
erection of an exhibit hall at the

make every effort to have-a race

doubt receive the liberal encour
