ATTEMPTS TO CUT THROAT Jacob Weber Slashes Neck With Razor at County Jail This Morning. DEPUTY FOILS PLAN OF DESTRUCTION. Jacob Weber, held at the Bel trami county jail to await the action of the grand jury next month on a charge of incest committed upon his 15 year old daughter at Nymore, this morn ing attempted to commit suicide by cutting his throat with a razor which he claims had been smuggled to him by his wife. "Weber was found in his sell this morning by Deputy Sheriff Thos, Bailey, Jr., lying in a large pool of blood which had emanat ed from an ugly gash on the side of the throat, from which he was still bleeding freely. The deputy at once called med ical assistance and the wound of Weber was dressed. He was very weak but will survive. The timely arrival of the de puty is perhaps the only thing that frustrated Weber's plan of self destruction. The attempt upon his life had been made per haps tv^o hours before the jail was opened up this morning. Weber had apparantly tried to cut the jugular vein and thought he had succeeded. When the jail was opened up he refused to answer the deputy when he was called, and it is thought that had he been leit unmolested he would have bled to death from the wound or made another attempt upon his life. Weber claims that his throat was cut accidently, but can give no plausable account of the man ner in which he received the wound otherwise than at his own hand. Won Contest Cases. Henry Funkley has received notice to the effect that the com missioner of the general land office at Washington has decided in favor of the contestant in two contest cases in which he repre sented the contestant. One case was Gustaf Stohl vs. Chas. Lari viere and the land is a valuable tract located between Battle River and Kelliher. The other was the case of John Swanson vs. John B. Johnson, the land con tested in this case being located in (Dormant township. Both con tests were brought after the eon testee had proved up on the land.

A cheap rate has been made to Walker from points north on the M. & I. and a number of excur sionists from Northome,. Ten strike and other towns will prob ably stop off in Bemidji. The Bemidji band will meet both trains and will also furnish music at the grounds. Both teams that will play to morrow are among the strongest in the state and the contest will without a doubt be interesting. THE STRIKE SITUATION Conditions Remain Practi cally UnchangedLittle Freight Moving. The strike situation, according to advices received from an authoritative source, is practical ly unchanged. It is claimed by the telegraphers that 97 per cent of all union men employed on-the Great Northern and Northern Pacific systems have gone out. Little freight is being handled and some passenger trains are now being delayed by the strike. The heads of the trainmen's orders have ordered all trainmen to cease assuming the functions of telegraphers, as they have heretofore been doing. Local Depot Open. Agent Chamberlain and Cash ier Rhea of the local Great North ern depot resumed their duties this morning and tickets were sold today. The telegraphers are still out, however, and no messages can be sent from the Bemidji depot, Whistle for His Baggage. John Emberlein is regretting the lockout. He left his trunks at the Great Northern depot at Walker for an hour. During the hour the agent got the strike order and went fishing. Now Mr. Emberlein is whistling for his baggage. Spoiling Breakfast. Towns which depend upon the dairy country for their supply of milk and cream are regretting the lockout. It spoils their breau fast. Thefirstfew mornings the cream was sour and complaints were loud The next many morn ings may be creamless entireiv. Calling in the Men. The wholesale houses are re gretting the lockout. There is no use trying to ship perishable freight or any kind of freight. So they are calling in their men and abandoning.business. Beefsteaks Frying. Butchers are regretting the lockout. There are two cars of beef hung up at Fosston simply waiting on the track for time to do its worst. Grand Eapids Beat Deer River.* According t& the.

No. 1 at Cass Lake Land Office Door Thinks His Place Worth $1500. THIRTY PEOPLE ALREADY IN LINE FOR AUG. 15 OPENING. Great Interest Manifested in the Opening Set for That Date. "I would not sell my place be fore this door for a cent less than $1500." This is the declaration of No. 1 before the door of the United States land office at Cass Lake. He took up his station before the office door August 1, fifteen days before the day set for the open ing and he thinks that his 15 days weary vigil will be richly repaid when he secures the claim which he has seen and selected. Already there are 30 people in line and they are enduring their weary wait as best they may. The opening occurs August 15, one week- from next Monday morning at 6 o'clock. That'so many people should already have taken places in iine se'ems somewhat strange in view of the fact that the acreage of fered in the Cass Lake district is not large and that the lands are all cut over lands. Some yery good claims must have been dis covered among them. WAGES RAISED AT THE MILL Crookston Lumber Company Will Pay $2 Per Day for Common Laborers.

GOO ENOUGH FOR TO STEAL Judge Pendergast's Drainage Address Swiped by all the Papers in the State. The hit of the drainage conven tion at Crookston this week was Judge Pendergast's^ address on "Actual Conditions inthe North." The address presented some startling figures and some strik ing new arguments. What Judge Pendergast said nas been quoted in every one of the big papers of the stateand credited in each instance to some local celebrity. In Duluth Senator Laybourn was made to say it, in Minneapolis Ray Jones got the credit while St. Paul marked it up to State Engineer Ralph. The Minne apolis Journal for Thursday evening published an editprial composed almost entirely of the literal words used by Judge Pendergast. 4*. The Judge should be much pleased with this testimony to the superior excellence of his ad dress. Newspapers never steal anything but the best.

For six days she wandered about in the woods and swamps, living on berries, and building a fire nights by which she "could keep warm and keep away any wolves or other animals that might be prowling around. For two days and two nights she was lost in a swamp and during that time she could find no berries and was without anything to eat But in spite of her age, and the fact that life in the woods unprotected from the flies and mosquitoes is almost unindurable Mrs. Hen drickson fought her way through and had found her way to familiar locations when members of the hunting party came upon her. She was feeling much better than could have been expected and is now suffering no serious inconvenience from the trials which she experienced during the six days she was lost. All hope of finding her alive had been given up Friday, as there been considerable rain dur ing two of the days and the nights were cool. MINNESOTA'S NATURAL GROWTH Births are Almost Double Number ofDeathsEnum- erators Checking Up. The records of births and deaths complied by the state board of health for 1904 will be the most complete in the history of Minnesota. Through a check ing up system carried out by the enumerators who took the 1905 census the board has secured the names of 1,500 persons who died during 1904 that were not reported by the local health offi cers, as required by the law. This will bring the total num ber of deaths for the year to about 20,000, as compared 36,000 births. It these figures are as nearly accur ate as can be secured and prob ably represent the correct ratio between births and deaths. ||*'Even with the addition of 1,500 deaths for 1904 there is no dan ger of Minnesota's population running out," said a state official. "Nearly twice as many people are born as die, so there is little evidence of race suicide in the North Star State."* m:4 W4M M^*S1 *.T jSS&Msrfl 'r \'J' ~k ^m^if^mmjmmmi^^m^pi BEMIDJIJE:LEVATOI^ CO.
