4r asgggg^^ BAILEY IS INDIGNANT Chief of Police Says Charges of Misconduct Are A Injustices. OTHERS MIXED IN AT SCHOOL ELECTION. Says Some Members of the Force Did Not Take Any Part In School Election. Chief of Police, S. C. Bailey is indignant over the story current about the city to the effect that a petition is soon to be circulated asking for the remo\al of the members of the local police force at the hands of the city council for undue interest manifested in the late school election. By re quest of Mr. Bailey the Pioneer publishes the following state ment from him. ''The charges of misconduct and attempted coercion made against the ofhcers of the local police department are an injus tice, said Mr Bailey this morn ing "and until the petition that is causing so much talk is pre sented to me I shall believe that the whole story is a ulmination. The police force did take some interest in the late election, not as a whole, however. There were members who did not inter est themselves in the outcome in any way. Personally I believe in standing by mv friends and I am willing to state frankly that I did what I could honorably for the election of D. C. Smyth and P. J. Ri ssell. The talk of police men jostling people about the polls is all rot. I believe we were quite as well behaved as one Campbell, an attorney in this town and any number of oAiers, who were at the polls and lm portuned any number ot ladies for their votes without the ordm ary courtesy that becomes a gentleman under all circum stances The ladies of the city and those who favored the Tor ranee and Andrew ticket won a magnificent victory and I am not sore about it. I and my friends are satisfied, but I am unable to deduct just why the police should be so roundly abused under the circumstances. So long as I live in Bemidji I shall take inter est in politics. I don't think anyone can deny me the right So long as I am on the police force I shall try to do my whole duty as an officer and to see that the several very excellent assist ants have do the same. I have always tried to give the city my best efforts as chief of police and the officers under me are as good men as are on the police force in any town in this country." "There is also a lot of talk about scandal the police de part ment. I want to go on re cord with the statement that in the performance of our official duties the skeleton is dragged from many a family closet and exposed to the view of the police department. Some of the people who are now loudest in their abuse of the police department have pasts in this town with which the police are familiar PRINCES S Grocery Co. M.E. CARSON, Manager.

It was a wooden gambler, however, and not one of the smooth, sauve knight of the cloth who manipu late .the pictured pasteboards and the little ivory ball. The robbery was affected in the stand formerly occupied by M. Oleary which was closed some time ago. In the building was a' slot machine the property ot C. Miles of this city and it con tained about $5 in nickels. En trance was effected by coming through the cellar, the machine was broken open and its contents taken. The theft was not dis covered until this morning and there is no clue to the per petrators FISK O RU N Well Known Local Attorney Can didatc For Judge of Probate This Fall. Attorney Fisk, one of the oldest and most successful prac ticing attorneys of the city an nounces his candidacy for the re publican nomination for judge of probate today. The announcement will come as a surprise to Mr. Pisk's many friends and to the general public as it was generally conceded that Judge Clark, the present incum bent would have a clear field for the nomination. Mr Fisk is popular with many friends in Bemidji, is respected for a genial personality and exFamous cellent ability and will no doubt be a formidable candidate for the place. Took The Train. The west bound time freight on the Great Northern which passed through Bemidji shortly before noon today put about fifty hoboes off the train here. Most of the men were apparently woodsmen on their way to the Dakota country. They decided that they would ride anyway and the entire party got into one car and gave the tram crew the defy when they were asked to get out. They were taken out of this city, with the doors ot the car locked from the outside and it was pro posed to set the car off at a sid ing somewhere up the line. New Chefs. Armstrong & Understood have lately added to their popular restaurant two of the "most successful and most widely known chefs in the business in the persons of Constand Bros who were lately employed at the chatauqua at Deyils Lake, N. The new chefs have served in some of the most popu lar resorts in the country, and Messrs Armstrong & Under wood are to highly commended in securing their services for Bemidji. Will Adjourn Tomorrow, The board of equalization which has been in session at the court house during all of this week will adjourn some time tomor row The board has been hear ing protests for the past two days. They are comparatively few and the assessment on theplaining whole was a very satisfactory one. A Keep For Bagley. The village of Bagley which has been without a jail for some time will soon construct a new one I will be modern in every respect and will be fitted up with steel cages Several representa tives of houses manufacturing steel cells and jail equipments will submit bids at the next meeting of the village council with. We have always been con servative in our dealings with local people and there is not a man in this town who can make and substantiate a charge of dis honesty against a single member of the police department "It is easy to accuse an officer. His duty calls him in some pecu liar places and puts him in some peculiar nositions in a town like Bemidji. I must .idmit that it is somewhat galling 'o bave charges of the soit (hit are floating around in man? instances come from people who are living in glass houses and have time and timeagam beenaccorded leniency at the hands of every member-of the force. If the police depart ment is subject to one single charge it is subject honestly to the one of being a trifle too easy on some of the people who arenumber now most roundly abusing us, I do not think that this'controversy is a good thing for the town in any way and I hope to see it dropped, but if anybody has any thing against the police depart ment he should prefer the charges at once and we will tell our side of the story when the proper tim ecomes." REWARD IN DAHL CASE State Fund Will Be Drawn Upon to Aid In Clear ing Case. GOVERNOR VAN SANT MAKES PROCLAMATION. Detectives of Twin Cities Taking Keen Interest and New Clues are Developed.

Practically everybody is fami liar with Gentry Bros, and their amusement enterprises and the show has a reputation for general all around excellence which always assures it a liberal pat ronage this section. This year's circus is bigger and better than ever before and includes a number ot feacures not seen with the Gentry's here tofore.

Local meat dealers are com of a falling off in the buying at the local markets and say that the general public seems to have the impression that the prices are going up. There has not been no raise in prices on the local market since the meat cutters strike began. The wholesale houses are quot ing stocks higher but the local demand is being supplied from the surrounding country and there is no prospect of an imme diate raise in prices* Child Meets With Accident. The little three-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. C. P. Scott met with a very serious accident at a Tenstrike sawmill yesterday.
