as second class matter.
Have you been Opsahlized, yet?
The people of this county are
very much interested in a normal
school, and should the county lose
its representative, it will go to Red
Lake county. So if you are inter
ested in its development, vote for J.
J. Opsahl, for a vote taken from him
and given to Funkley, is a vote for
Ives of Red Lake.Taken trom the
"Opsahlized" Sentinel.
The above is one of "Colonel''
Allen's invitations to vote for his
personal candidate for the legislature.
A vote for Mr. Tunkley is by no
means "a vote for Ives of Red
A vote for Henry Funkley for
the legislature is a vote for a man
who will do all in his power,
from the opening day of the legis
lature, to secure for Bcnidji and
Beltrami county many things that
are needed from the legislature.
It is certainly true that it will not
be necessary to send a delegation
of representative business men to
St. Paul to prod our representative
in the legislature to "get a move on"
and work for our interests on the
normal school proposition, as was
the case with Mr." Opsahl last
winter, although he finally did "go"
fairly well after it had been sug
gested to him that he was the rep
resentative of the people of Beltrami
Under the caption, "Pioneer Takes
A Stand," the Sentinel contained
the following in its last issue:
"We are glad to learn that Sunday
the Pioneer took a political stand,
and came out with the platform:
Gcod for the editor, glad to have
you out in the open."
The above is but one of the many
untruthful sweeping assertions made
by the Sentinel in its last issue
relative to the legislative contest,
which is at present occupying the
undivided attention of the Sentinel,
under the directorate or J. J. Opsahl,
"Colonel" Allen, "Carpetbaeger"
Brown and "informer" Rood. The
statement is as untruthful as it is
The Pioneer is not published on
Sunday and further, no such asser
tion as given above was ever made
by anybody connected with the
Pioneer and clothed with the author
ity to make such a statement.
Mr.. Opsahl and his asroclattis
must indeed be driven to the last,
ditch when they will resort to lies
1 subterfuges in misleading the
pec pie to vote for the Sentinel',
Verily the entire Sentinel outfit,
from the "Growler" down to "in-
former" Rood, has been Opsahlizjd,
to a fare-ye-well.

Three Persons Dead and
Another Dying.
Gas Tube Attached to Heater in Bath
room Becomes Disconnected and
House Rapidly Fills With the Dead
ly FumesFailing to Arouse In-
mates a Relative of the Victims
Promptly Summoned Aid.
St. Paul, Sept. .Peter J. Schollert,
head of the Schollert company, paint
ers and decorators Mrs. P. Schollert,
his wife, and Lewis Christianson,
brother of Mrs. Schollert, are dead at
the Schollert home as the result of
asphyxiation by illuminating gas.
Hans Hendrickson, a cousin of Mrs.jury,
Schollert, is at the city hospital,
where physicians say he cannot possi
bly recover.
The dead and dying were discovered
by Mrs. G. Webber, a married daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Schollert, who
lives next door, and who, at the re
quest of her brother Victor, who had
arisen early and gone to work, went
to the house to call her parents and
their country visitors, who had been
at the fair the previous evening.
Failing to arouse them from their
slumbers and detecting a strong odor
of gas Mrs. Webber instantly sought
help and Dr. Wirth was summoned,
He found life extinct in the bodies
of Mr. and Mrs. Schollert and of her
brother, Mr. Christianson.
There still remained a spark of life
in Mr. Hendrioksen and he was hast
ened to the city hospital with a hope
of saving his life, although the hos
pital authorities fear that the elderly
man cannot withstand the battle for
life, as his age and physical condition
are against him.
A gas tube attached to a bath heater
in the bathroom which became dis
connected by coming in contact with
the chain is assigned to be the cause
of the accident. When the bodies
were discovered gas was pouring from
a small stub vo which the tube should
have bean attached.

the G. A. R.
Toledo, O., Sept. 5.Salt Lake City

third annual encampment of the
Grand Army of the Republic next year

in-chief. The election occurred on the
first ballot, which gave Mr. Nevius
454 votes, compared with 254 for for
mer Governor Van Sant of Minnesota

"Statement*Was Misleading.",
The attention of the Pioneer has
been called to a statement made in
the Daily edition of last Friday,
wherein it was said that the analysis
of a powder sent to a chemist in the
cities agreed with a previous analy
sis made by Prof. Derby, and v.e
have been asked to print the follow
ing statement, made by Arthur
Akerberg, btother of the deceased
Carl Akerbarg:
"The statement made by the
Pioneer was misleading, in that the
analysis made by Professor Dei by
of some of the powders of that
prescription did not conform with
the analysis made by Mr. Lehman,
which was the analysis of the par
ticular powder submitted to Mr.
Lehman by stipulation of the attor
neys. The analysis made by Prof.
Derby was furnished to the grand
at the spring term of court.
We do not want this case tried in
the papers but are willing to leave
the matter to the courts."

an extra session of the Indiana legis

the grant of $120,548 unexpended bal

and to give the governor power to
deal with troubles in Southern Indiana
