An inquiry by telephone reached
The Pioneer Saturday evening, ask
ing why the McGhee-Stewart vote
in Saturday's, issue was omitted
This was unintentional as The
Pioneer is very much interested in
this race According to the precincts
at hand in the Pioneer office Mr
McGhee's vote showed a gain over
Stewart's The vote for last week
showed McGhee 1,647, Stewart 1,479
The vote now stands 1,661 for the
newly elected superintendent, Mr
McGhee, and 1,488 for Stewart
There are still eight precincts to
hear trom and if Stewart secured
practtcally every vote he could not
overcome the lead Mr McGhee now
lifts Indications are that McGhee's
lead will steadily increase

Bemidji News
Of Armistice
The Pioneer made good.
At an early hour this morning,
while Bemidji slumbered deeply,
came a long distance phone mesage
from the Northwestern Bureau of
the United Press St Paul, to The
Pioneer, containing the information
that Germany had surrendered to the
allies
The central office of Jhe telephone
company was notified and the night
operator called subscribes, routed
them out of bed and spread the news.
Soon thereafter, the streets com
menced to ftll with people and others
of the city populace were aroused
The Pioneer bulletined its dis
patch and crowds quickly gathered
while the city took on a scene of ani
mation, growing hourly as bells
clanged and whistles voiced tthe vic
*tory of the allies

THE ALLIES AND GERMANY SIGNED
THE ARMISTICE.
WAR OFFICIALLY AT AN END.
By Robert J. Bender.
(United Press Correspondent.)
Washington, Nov. 11.At 6 o'clock this
morning, United States eastern time, the greatest
war in the history came to an end.
The state department officially announced
early today that the German plenipotentiaries
signed the United States-Allied armistice terms
at Marshal Foch's headquarters at 5 o'clock this
morning, French time, and hostilities ceased at
11 o'clock this morning, French time.
While the armistice merely halts the war
and does not end it, the terms laid down by
Marshal Foch are such as to prevent Germany
from renewing hostilities.
The war, therefore, may be regarded as
definitely ended.
There remains now the great problem of
peace conference and gigantic work of returning
fighters to their home lands. Geneva and Brus-
sels are considered as most likely places for
peace negotiations and so far the general staff
has already completed its plans for a general
demobilization.
The nation celebrated wildly today. Fac-
tories and stores everywhere are closed and thou-
sonds formed interwinding parades.

London, Nov. 11 .-Germany is today kaiser-

and grand dukes and other royalty of the empire

by revolution.
