CONVENTION HERE ON MONDAY
Will Elect Delegates to the District
Meeting at Thief River
Early reports from Minneapolis
and St. Paul indicate that Roosevelt
ran in the lead in the precinct cau
cuses held in Minnesota yesterday
with Taft and La Follette far behind.
Roosevelt is generally conceded to
carry Hennepin county as with 117
reports out of 151 precincts Roosevelt
is given 387 delegates, Taft 84 and
La Follette 44. 16,000 votes were
cast in the Hennepin primary.
In six counties where preferential
caucuses were held in accordance
with the plan of the Roosevelt com
mittee, the colonel from Oyster Bay
won in five and split in the sixth.
Delegates were chosen as follows:
for Roosevelt, Anoka, 10 Becker,
12 Chippewa, 10 Otter Tail, 18
Rock, 9 Washington, 14 Wabasha,
7, with 6 for Taft.
Delegates to the Republican coun
ty convention here Monday are ex
pected to arrive from the north to
night and will cotae from interme
diate points on the early Monday
trains. As far as can be learned from
unofficial reports the delegates elect
ed at the caucuses ai-e generally pro
gressive although no one will venture
the assertion that the delegation to
Thief River will be instructed.
J. C. Parker, chairman of the coun
ty committee, arrived in Bemidji last
night for the convention, coming
from a drive on the Winterroad riv
er west of Baudette. The convention
will open in the court room at the
court house Monday morning at 10
Big Boom Goes Out.
J. C. Parker returned last night
from his drive on the Winterroad
river and says that early yesterday
morning, some one blew up the boom
of the International Lumber company
at the mouth of the Big Fork river,
releasing the logs into the Rainy.
The boom held several million feet
and these are now scattering down
the Rainy towards Baudette. It is
considered doubtful if the Interna
tional company will be able to get
its logs back to its mills because of
Mr. Parker says that water in the
northern rivers are high and that
several drives which have been hung
up for two or three years will be tak
en out this spring. His drive in the
Winterroad had been held up three
years. The Big Fork is said to be
high and several drives are being
taken out below Big Falls.
Lutefisk Goes to the Bottom.
The good ship Lutefisk, operated
by the Crookston Lumber company
as a herder of stray logs, went to the
bottom of the lake in about fifteen
feet of water this morning. The
Lutefisk was lying alongside of the
company's boom with the engine
quiet. The men noticed that the
north wind was pushing the boat up
on the boom but before the engine
could be started to back her off, the
boom tipped her up and the water
came in over the side flooding the
engine room and filling the hold.
The boat will be raised.
Give Busts to School.
Seniors of the High school have de

busts of Shakespere and Milton which

and hopes to have the busts here by

"The Old Law and the New Life"
Matt. 5:17-26. Golden TextRom.
13:8 (R. V.).
1. Vital Truth.
We need a word of caution at the
very beginning on account of the
suggestion of the topic given"Life
through love." Now let it be dis
tinctly understood that no one gets
life through love, but on the con
trary, we get love through life. "We
love, because He first loved us"-
John 1:19. We need'to note that it
is the simple statement "We love,'
and not as the authorized version has
it, "We love Him." True enough, we
could not love Him had He not first
loved us, but the truth brought out
isall true love is of God, and the
love we bear to our brother is in
mind, as the twentieth verse shows.
Now, what did this love of God's
lead to? The giving of His son
John 3:16. To what end? That we
might have life in His nameJohn
20:31. Eternal Life is the free gift
of GodRom. 5:16 6:23. There is
grave danger that we think and teach
that Jesus is here teaching the way
to life, when He is really teaching
the ideal life to those who already
have life through faith in His name.
This "Golden Rule" salvation we
hear men talk about, is a trick of the
devil practiced on them. That kind
of a religion may be good enough for
some men, but they will surely find
out that it is not good enough for
God. The wise thing is to inquire as
to what suits God, and then fall in
with that for having one's own way
will at last prove comfortless indeed,
under the sound of those awful
words"Depart from me." No life
through love. Be not deceived.
The Golden Text says, "He that
loveth his neighbor hath fulfilled the
law." Now this makes plain, forwe
do not get life through fulfilling the
law (Rom. 3:20 Gal. 2:21), but are
enabled to fulfill the righteous re
quirements of the law through the
life we receive by faith in Jesus
2. Jesus and the Law.
His attitude toward the law was
not that of the destructionist, but of
the faithful fulftller. The law was
the schoolmaster (boy-leader) to lead
to ChristGal. 3:24. The thought
is that of a servant having the over
sight or guardianship of the children
on the way to school. The law could
not atone, but "acted as guardian on
the way to the Atoner. The sins of
God's people were not forgiven or
remitted under the old economy, but
were passed over (Rom. 3:25. R. V.),
"winked at," as in Acts 17:30, or as
the revisers have used, "overlooked."
The law was not failing however, but
fully serving God's purposeguard
ing God's own on the way to the Re
It might have seemed that God was
unrighteous in passing over sins as
He did, and indeed it would have
been so had it not been for the Lamb
slain, in the purpose of God, from
before the foundation of the world,
or from all eternity and now in the
fullness of time He comes forth, dies
for those sins, and thus declares the
righteousness of God. How God
hates sin. "To pass over sin is the
work of 'forbearance' to remit sin
is the work of grace." "Grace and
truth came through Jesus Christ."
Jesus Christ died for men, but He
died also for God. What a message
we have to carry to menwe can
first commend God to them through
the death of Jesus, and then assure
them that they are commended to
God through that same death, if they
will only believe. God declared
righteousness, and He in turn de
clares righteous, on the simple
ground of faith, every believer in
His Son, the Fulfiller of the law.
3. The Verbal Inspiration.
The unfailing character of God's
word is declared here. The word
"jot" is for "jod," the smallest letter
in the Hebrew alphabet, the tenth
letter, and the word "tittle" is for the
little bend of certain Hebrew letters
which is the only distinction.
God has not only given the very
words, but the smallest letter, yea,
the very point or bend of certain let
ters. I wonder how it is that some
men think they can trifle with the
Word with immunity. I wonder again
how even some preachers of the Word
can regard with such indifference the
close, careful study of the Word, sat
isfying themsel.ves with' mere mor-,
alizing. Every single word of the
inspired Word is replete and rich
it is God breathed.
4. The Location of Sin.
It is in the heart. The act of mur
der is a symptom, not the disease.
These evils (Matt. 15:18-20) proceed
from the heart, but it is the presence
of them in the heart, and not the
procedure which constitutes the sin.
All these are open and naked before
the eye of Him with whom we have
to doHeb. 4:13. A walk in the
light is our only hope1 John 1:6-1,

FRED EBERLINE IS DEAD
Passed Away in Rochester Last Night
After a Short Illness From
FUNERAL O BE IN WADENA
Fred Eberline ided last night in
Rochester, Minnesota, a'rt&r an illness
of but a few days. Cause of death is
given as hernia from which he had
been a sufferer for some time. Mr.
Eberline went to Rochester last Tues
day hoping to find relief through an
operation but death prevented.
Fred Eberline lived in Bemidji for
seven years, coming here from Wa
dena. He was born in Germany.and
came to the United States about thir
ty-five years ago settling in Wiscon
sin. From there he moved to Wade
na county and lived there many years
eventually settling in Bemidji. He
was married and leaves his wife and
daughter, Elizabeth and son William,

MADE STRONG CASE
AT STATE HEARING
Nymore Residents Claim That Being
an Incorporated Village, Have
Right to Depots.
COMPLAIN OP THE BAD ROAD
Say That Loads to Bemidji Must Be
Cat in Half Because of Poor
RAILROADS FIGHT THE CHANGE
Maintain That Station Project is Im
practical From Operating
Nymore Hearing Points.
1. The average team can haul
twice the load from the country to
Nymore that it can from Nymore to
Bemidji, due to the bad road from
Nymore to Bemidji.
2. Nymore pays at present about
$5,000 a year in freight bills. A sta
tion or stations at Nymore would
take this business from Bemidji
3. Farmers iin the towns of Frohn
and Bemidji can make three or four
trips to Nymore where they make
two to Bemidji because of the condi
tion of the Nymore-Bemidji road.
4. From the Nymore postoffice to
the M. and I. freight depot in Be
midji is 6,103 feet to the Union de
pot, 6,600 feet to the Soo freight
depot, 7,156 feet and to the Great
Northern depot, 7,301 feet.
5. Nymore is an incorporated Til
lage and as such has a right under
state law to railroad stations.
6. Any depot in Nymore which
would not interfere with the inter
locking system, would have to be
placed nearly as far from the Nymore
postoffice as the Bemidji Union sta
tion is at present.
Making their case on the prima
facie fact that teh village is incorpo
rated and so under state law has a
right to railroad depots but strength
ening it with a citation of other rea
sons why Nymore should have its own
depots, citizens of that town yester
day afternoon had a hearing before
the state railroad and warehouse com
Witnesses were introduced who
testified that the village had been
incorporated for nine years but that
all shipping had to be done through
Bemidji. It was pointed out to the
commission that the merchants and
residents of Nymore are under a han
dicap by reason of a charge of fifty
cents a load on hauls from Bemidji
and that because of the condition of
the road, Toads between Nymore and
Bemidji had to be cut in two.
Evidence was also introduced to
show that in Bemidji there is no
place near the freight depots Where
wood can be piled so that it can be
shipped in car Jots. It was also stat
ed that when car lot shipments were
made over the Soo from the Nymore
spur or over the M. and I. that the
shipper had to come to Bemidji to
bill out the car.
O. J. Tagley testified that in his
opinion the freight bill paid by Ny
more each year amounts to about
$6,000 and could be increased two or
three thousand a year if Nymore had
a depot. He admitted that if the
road to Bemidji was in such a condi
tion that hauling would be easy, that'
a large part of the cause of complaint
would be eliminated.
In behalf of the railroads, evidence
was introduced that all lines had
made heavy investments in Bemidji
interminals, not expecting to be put
to the expense of separate yards at
Nymore as the two are so close to
gether. It was pointed out that the
Soo and M. and I. have capacity for
twenty years ahead and that the
Great Northern will have as soon as
the new depot is built here.
The railroads also showed that the^*
interlocking system, which automat
ically closes two roads while tfce
third is using the crossing, repre
sented an expenditure of $14,000 %$t
and that if a depot was placed where #S^^3fg

crossing each time the third was do
