Trial ofF. J. Artz for Killing
of John Weilander Begins
This Morning.
Much Interest Manifested in
Case Which Will Probably
Last Entire Week.
The trial of J. Artz for the
killing of John Weilander was
begun this morning trad the at
torneys have been busy select
ing the jury which will decide
the fate of the man who is actire
cused by the grand jury of mur
der in the first degree.
So far there haye been only
four jury men sworn in, and the
prospects are that it will take all
the afternoon as well as a good
share of tomorrow to secure
twelve men to sit on the jury.
Artz was arrested last spring
upon a warrant sworn out by
County Attorney Loud and wasJ.
held upon a preliminary exam
ination to await the action of the
grand jury. He was indicted last
week and his case is the first of
its nature to come before the
present term of court.
Much interest is manifested
in the case and the court room is
filled with listeners, although the
real trial has not yet begun. The
trial promises to be along wind
ed one, as every effort will be
made by the authorities to se
cure a conviction and the de
fendant's attorneys will do all in
their power to secure his release.
Miss Hattie Artz, a sister of the
accused, is in attendance, and
will remain here until after the
verdict of the jury is given.

Race With Death.
Brainerd Dispatch: There was
a race with death this afternoon
and it was perhaps one of the
quickest runs ever made between
this city and Little Palls when an
engine and single caboose flew
over the line ha\ing aboard John
Henry, an engineer on the main
line who had a sudden attack of
appendicitis and who it was
thought was dying. I is said
that the run was made in a little
better than forty minutes. Upon
reaching the city Henry was still
alive and will be operated on.

ters will in all likelihood be taken
up for consideration.

Wagon Road From Baudette
Straight South on The
Range Line.
Saving in Mileage Fees Would
Pay for Road In
Two Years.
To anyone who has for a mo
raent considered the map of Bel
trami county the need of a wagon
road south from Baudette is one
of the most urgent of Beltrami
county's needs. There is now a
legally designated road south
from Baudette on the range line
between ranges thirty and thir
ty-one This road runs straight
south curving slightly around the
end of Red Lake and then past
Shotley on south to Blackduck
The distance to Red Lake is
36 miles while Blackduck
is about the same distance still
lurther south. The nearest point
to railway connections is Kelliher
which would be about 55 miles
from Baudette.
County Surveyor Stoner esti
mates that tha mileage fees paid
by the county in two years would
entirely pay for the cost of the
road, while the benefit to the set
tlers and to the people of the
county generally would be very
great and the road would prove a
powerful factor in the develop
ment of the county at both of its
terminals and along the entire
route. The road would be a dia
rect outlet not only for the great
Rainy River country but for allMr.
the Shotley Brook country and
the Rapid River country terri
tory both of which sections are
fine farming lands already well
The road is a project in which
the people of Beltrami county
are intensely interested and vig
orous effort should be made this
winter in the legislature to objury
tain assistance from the state for
its construction.
Grand Jury Adjourns.
The grand jury, after a session
ten days, adjourned Saturday
after having returned six
indictments, seven persons being
accused of crimes by that body.
Pour murder charges, one charge
of assault with intent to kill, one
burglary in the first degree and
another of forgery were made
and it is probable that with the
exception of two of the murder
cases all the persons accused
will be tried at the present term
of court. The members of thegerms
grand jury returned this morn
ing to their homes in the differ
ent parts of the county.
Not Legal Publication.
The case of Hays & Verity vs.
M. E Ibertson went to jury Sat
urday afternoon and a verdict
was rendered for the defendant.
Hays & Verity sues for $500
damages claiming that Mr. Ibert
son represented the subscription
list of the Sentinel to be 400
whereas as they swear it
but 216 or less than enough to
constitute a legal publication. I
is not often that a publisher will
take the pains to made affidavit
that his paper is not a legal pub
lication but this seems to be the
one exception that proves the

Bemidji-Grand Rapids Foot Ball
Game Yesterday Afternoon
Ends in Tie.
The foot ball game yesterday
afternoon between Bemidji and
Grand Rapids on the local
grounds ended in a tie neither
side being able to score. Bemidji
was much lighter than their op
ponents, but held the line until
the last part of the secor half,
when Grand Rapids made gains
with center rushes. The first
half was played almost entirely
on Grand Rapids' ground, the
Bemidji aggregation making
headway on end plays and it
looked at times as if they would
score. Markham played good
center and Smyth, Arnold, Per
kins, Getchell and Brannon did
good work in their relative posi
tions. The second half was
played largely on Bemidji's
ground, the Grand Rapids giants
making good gains by center
rushes. They fumbled the ball
repeatedly but were very lucky,
sometimes making gains after
having made a fumble. Neither
side succeeded in making a touch
down and the game ended a tie,
nothing to nothinsr.

High Compliment To

Council Meeting.
A meeting of the city council
be held at the city hall to
night. The important feature of
the meeting will be a discus
sion of ways and means whereby
the Red Lake railway company
can be induced to build the road
into this city. The mptnb'rs of
the council feel that the building
of the railway into this city
means much to its business men
and every effort will be made by
them to secure the terminus for
The Artz case, wherein Prank
Artzischarged with the murder of
Peter Weilander, is on in the dis
trict court today. The matter of
securing a jury is proving to be
slow process inasmuch as Bai
ley & McDonald, attorneys for
Artz, object to all jurors who
are subscribers to the Pioneer,
on the ground that the Pioneer
has published accounts of the
murder and urged editorially the
necessity stamping out lawless
ness in Beltrami county. Inas
much as nine out of ten of the
people of the county take the
Pioneer the work of securing the
proceeds very slowly. The
Pioneer appreciates the hand
some compliment which Messrs.
Bailey & McDonald pay to its in
Cause of Lockjaw.
Lockjaw, or tetanus, is caused
by a bacillus or germ which ex
ists plentifully in street dirt. I
is inactive so long as exposed to
the air, but when carried beneath
the skin, as in the wounds caused
by percussion caps or by rusty
nails, and when the air is ex
cluded the germ is roused to ac
tivity and produces the most vir
ulent poison known. These
may be destroyed and
danger of lockjaw avoided by ap
plying Chamberlain's Pain Balm
freely as soon as the injury
is received. Pain Balm is an
antiseptic and causes cuts,
bruises and like injuries to heal
without maturation and in one
third the time required by the
usual treatment. Sold by Bar
ker's Drug store.
T. J. Miller informs the
Pioneer that it was an error Sat
urday evening in stating that
Willian Sherman had purchased
a half interest in his business in
asmuch as Mr. Sherman does
not own a dollars worth of the
and is connected with
it simply on a commission basis.
John O'Dale came down from
Tenstrike this morning, where
he has operated a saw mill for

for Ashland, Wis this afternoon
to take charge of a saw mill in
that city.
