City Council Can Take No
Action to Pay for Red Lake Right of Way. SUBSCRIBERS MUST MAK E GOO THEIR PROMISES. Property Holders of the City Wiil Probably Be Asked To "Come In." The members of the city coun cil have positively decided that they can in no legal manner make any appropriation to pay for the right of way of the new Minnea polis, Red Lake & Manitoba rail way, and it is very probable that the business men of the city who signed an agreement with the railway company that providing the railway was built through Bemidji they would providefunds with which to pay for the right of way will be called upon to furnish the amount opposite their names on the agreement. The attorneys who were ap pointed to devise some plan that would enable the city council to provide the money have exhaust ed their efforts without finding a legal way for the appropriation to be made by the council, and in view of this fact it seems certain that the property owners will be called upon to "come in," unless railway company decides to pur chase the right of way of their own free will, which is very im probable. The amount which will be nee essary to buy the land for the right of way purposes and term inals is about $10,000, and the sums guaranteed by the several business men who signed the agreement range from $50 to $1,000.
