Will Return to Northome and De vote His Attention to the Homestead. Otto Schmidt, the "Northome sixteen-thousand-aire," is in Min neapolis safe and sound. While his friends were fearing that he had been foully dealt with by Minneapolis thugs, who were after his $16,000 he was in St. Louis, watching the windup of the world's fair. A Minneapolis tailor made two suits of clothes for Schmidt and another suit was for a friend of Schmidt's who had stood by him in earlier days. As soon as the suits were ready they went to St Louis. Two days ago they returned to Minneapolis. They have been there since. Schmidt is stopping at one of the hotels. He reported at police headquarters yesterday after noon, after learning through the papers that he was believed to have been the victim of foul play. He had heard that the police had arrested a man on the charge of spending his money. "All this talk about my throw ing my $16,000 away is foolish," said Schmidt. "I'm going to put a lot ot it mto my claim up near Northome, I spent about $200 in Northome the day after I got the money. I don't deny that 1 drank. Then I came to Minne apolis, ordered some suits. I am going to Chicago and then I will go back to Northome." "Don't be afraid of me flashing any rolls around Minneapolis. I'm Mr. Wisentein with the dough. It won't do any good to hit me on the head, for I don't bear the coin. And it won't do any good to coax, because I'm a stony-hearted jailor." First Dance.

Options Hold Until Jan. 1, When Purpose of Company Will Be Known. The mysterious company which is represented by Jabez Hines, the Blackduck Dowieite, is still securing options upon lands near that village, and the latest re ports are to the effect that Mr. Hines made a deal for the pur chase of a large amount of real estate situated within the limits of the up-line town,- and that Dowieism will be carried into the heart of the village. It is known positively that he has made over tures to several citizens of Black duck for the purchase of their realty holdings in the village, and it is stated upbn good author ity that he has secured options upon several of the business in stitutions. What purpose the company has for purchasing real estate within the village limits of Black duck can only be guessed at, but in view of the fact that Mr. Hines*is such a radical exponent of Dowieism, it is believed that a colony of many hundreds of people will make its home near Blackduck. Secured Wolf Bounty. L. W. Aldrich of the town of Eckles was in the city this morn ing and secured payment from County Auditor Moon of a wolf bounty upon a large male wolf which he killed some time ago.

L^sw^jsr DMOftLPREUCBeCQ Mitumm OHUGO Want Court Commissioners. A petition is being circulated among settlers in all townships in northern Minnesota which con tain homesteads asking the de partment of the interior to allow them to transact thfir land busi ness before the United States commissioner as they were pri vileged to do before the new rul ing went into effect. Under this ruling, they are compelled to go to either Duluth, Crookston or Cass Lake, or other points far away, which means a trip of over 1,300 miles by rail. If the peti tion is allowed, the settlers will be greatly benefited. The coming of the colony of negroes to "Blackduck" puts one in mind of a black man wfeo was coming to the Duck in the first days of the railroad. The coon, who was somewhat the worse for liquor, was asleep in one of the coaches when the braky came' along and cried the name of the place, "Blackduck!" The darkey jumpod up, rubbed his eyes, and exclaimed. "Blackduck?
