Report Current to Effect That
P. H. McGarry Possesses
Large Fortune.
Story Emanated From Black
dock Andlis Generally Be
lieved to be True.
A report emanating from
Blackduck is to the effect that
last weekP. H. McGarry ot Walker
fell heir to the large fortune of
$150,000 through the death of
an aunt who lived in Wisconsin.
The story, while it is not vouched
for, is said to be generally be
lieyed at Blackduck and is taken
as reliable, as it is known that
Mr. McGarry had wealthy rela
tives in the Badger state, the*
event of whose death he would be
the possessor of a large amount
of money.
Mr. MaGarry has not been ap
proached regarding the matter,
but there is no doubt that he has
heard of the rumor and as yet he
has neither made a denial nor af
firmed the story.
It is hoped by his many friends
throughout northern Minnesota
that the report is true, as Mr
McGarry is one of the most en
terprising men in this section of
the state. With the capital
which this would give him he
would engage in a number of in
dustries besides those in which
he is now interested and Bemidji
would undoubtedly receive the
bulk of Disinvestments
At the present time he owns
and operates two hotels, the Pa
meda at Walker and the Teepee
tonka at Blackduck and is at the
head of the Walker Hospital and
Sanitarium association. He has
had his eye on this city as a fav
orable location for a large hotel
on the order of the one at Black
duck and should it be true that
he has fallen heir to the large
fortune which it is reported he
has the venture will undoubted
ly be made.

About Twenty Camps Will
Operate on North Line
the Coming Winter.
Season's Cut Will Be Somewhat
Lighter Than Last Year
Cedar a Factor.
During the coming logging
season there will be in the neigh
borhood of twenty logging camps
operating on the line of the M. &
I. north of Bemidji and already
the contractors are busy build
ing camps, installing their outfits
and preparing for the season's
The cut next winter will be
somewhat lighter than last sea
son, but fully as many if not
more men will be employed, as
the cedar business is coming to
the front in a remarkable man
ner and a large number of labor
ers will be required for this
Kirk & Smith will operate a
large camp near Mud lake and
their contract aggregates about
5,000,000 feet. Another camp
located near Mud lake will be
operat by John Durant, who has
to land 2,000,000 feet
in Mud lake. The Beltrami Tim
ber company have a tract which
it is estimated will cut 7,000,000
feet, but as yet the contract for
logging this has not yet been let
and it is not known whether it
will be logged during the coming
season. One camp will be inColic,
operation south oi Mallard lake
for the Walker & Akeley com
pany, the amount to be cut be
ing 3,000,000 feet. John Moberg
this city has taken a contract
to put in 3,000,000 feet and has
started the erection of his camps
and his outfit passed through the
the city this morning enroute to
the camp near Gull lake. Irwin
& O'Brien own considerable tim
ber in the vicinity of Blackduck
and Tenstrike, but they have not
decided whether it will be cutthe
next winter, although they will
probably operate two or three
camps on old cuttings.
The J. A. Irvine company will
have six camps, five of them be
ing tributary to Blackduck and
the other located on Pine Island.
"While the Crookston Lumber
company's cut of pine will exceed
that of last winter, thev will also
engage heavily in-the cedar busi
ness and will have a number of
cedar camps in the vicinity of
Dexterville. The S. C. Jackson
company, who operated a num
ber of cedar camps last winter,
will also cut a large number of
posts and poles. Blakely & Far
ley will do most of their work on
the reservation, but three camps
will be operated trioutary to Par
ley and they will land approxi
mately 10,000,000 feet.
It can be seen by the above es
timates that the logging busi
ness during the coming winter
will be nearly as large as last,
and, although Walker & Akeley
who were serhaps the heaviest
owners of pine in northern Min
