HE DAILY PIONEER
EDWARD KAISER., Publisher Entered In the postofhoe at Bemidji as second-class matter. PUBLrSHKtf EVERY AFTERNOON. Official County and City Paper. The demand f3r jack pine and other cordwood for, shipment to points in North Dakota is far be yond the supply. At Bemidji, Rosby, Selkce, Solway and Shev lin orders are plenty, wood scarce and sellers unable to fill all orders. The importance of the wood business to the people of this country is but little appre ciated. The fact is that a claim covered with cordwood will britfg more steady money and be of ten times more benefit to the county and the people than a dozen tim ber claims that are cut off in one winter by a floating population, and the money sent to Minne apolis, Cordwood money comes to the farmer in small lots, cover ing a'long series of years, and is spent in the county where it does every one some good. The declaration of independ ence is to be seen no more by the public. It will be kept in. a big fire proof safe. This decision was reached yesterday as a re sult of an examination of the doc ument by a committee of the American Academy of Science now in session in Washington, who acted at the instance of Sec retary Hay, whose attention was called to the sad state of the famous document. Most of the text is still legible, but only one or two of the signatures can be made out. There is only a trace of thel autograph of John Han cock, the first to sign. AMES ON TRIAL. Trial of Former Mayor Ames Commenced at Minne apolis Yesterday. The trial of former Mayor Ames of Minneapolis commenced before Judge Elliott yesterday. The doctor appeared in court, seemingly in good health, ready to face a charge of accepting $600 from a number of keepers of disorderly resorts. County Attorney Board man and his as sistant, C. S. J. Ely, appeared for the state and Prank M. Nye W. W. Erwin, S. S. Mead and Harry Deutsch appeared for Mr. Ames. The work of selecting jurors was begun, being facili tated somewhat by the use of challengers. It is expected that the work of selecting a jury will be long and tedious. Mr. Ames faced the situation in the attitude of a man whose name had been bemirched, but not dishonored. Packed into the spacious court room were scores of friends of the former mayor, also were there his enemies,erst while objects of his indulgence! but now committed to do their worst against him. The doct appeared greatly im proved in health and beyond an occasional absent-minded tapping of his ever-present walking stick on the floor, showed not the slighest evidence of nervousness. There is nothing special stir ring in the line of railroad news. The work is moving along in good shape and gives promise of an early finish.

TYNER RETURNS PAPERS. Twenty Documents Relating to Post office Affairs Are Handed to Payne. Washington, April 28. Lawyer* representing the former attorney gen eral for the postofflce department, James N. Tyner, Saturday, turned over to Mr. Payne the papers abstract ed from the safe by Mrs. Tyner last Tuesday. Many of the papers were the personal property of Mr. Tyner, and these were placed In the hands of R. Ross Perry and Gen. Michener, the attorneys In the case. There was one package of papers, about twenty in number, relating to public business, and these were retained by Mr. Payne. The fact thrt government papers were abstracted by Mrs. Tyner gives the governuent a basis for prosecu tion. These will be turned over to At torney General Knox, who, after mak ing an examination of them, will give instructions to the United States dis trict attorney, who will decide wheth er or not arrests will be made. Owing to Mr. Tyner's helpless condition he may not be prosecuted, but this is a question to be decided in the future Officials of the department say they have a clear case against Mr. Tyner, hi3 wife and Mrs. Barrett.
