HE DAILY PIONEER.
EDWAR KAISER.. Publisher Entered In the postoflico at Bemidji as second-class mattor. PUBLISHED EVERY AFTERNOON. Official County and City Paper. BEMIDJI IS BOOMING. The Great County and Its Thrifty County Seat Forging to the Fore. The Crookston Times of yes terday contains the following in teresting item under the above heading: The Beltrami county court house, which one year ago was unthought of, has been completed (and is now occupied by the county officials. It is a beautiful edifice, and one of the best built and most imposing structures in northern Minnesota. Its cost will aggregate about $55,000. A little less than a year ago Messrs. F. C. Sibley, John McDougald, Wes Wright, Ed Gallagher and J. W. Johnson, then comprising the board of county commissioners, recognized the necessity of such a building and caused to be is sued $50 000 in courthouse bonds for its erection. The bonds were readily sold, and work on the edi- fice commenced and carried to successful completion without a hitch. The following officers are now comfortably housed in the new building: AuditorD. L. Sylvester. RegisteT~~bf BeeiSnr~:=~Matt" Phibbs. Clerk 61 CourtF. W. Rhoda. TreasurerO J. Shinn. SheriffThomas Bailey. judge of ProbateM. A. Clark. JailerJohn Bailey. Associate Judge Fifteenth Dis- trictM. A. Spooner. County Superintendent of schoolsF. J. Dunwoody. The completion of this build ing suggests the great progress that has been made in Beltrami county and its thrifty county seat during the past few years. Evi dence of intelligent development are to be found throughout the entire county property has en hanced greatly in value and num erous thrifty little towns dot the rich and productive leagues. And during the progress of this work Bemidji has made monstrous for ward strides. From an unpre tentious, struggling, straggling little hamlet of only four or five brief years ago, with a population of barely 400, the town has bounded to the fore with almost phenominal pace, and now has a population approaching 4,000, and is growing rapidly embued with a spirit of up-to-dativeness, the little metropolis enjoys all of the modern improvements, such as water works, electric lights, etc., and is daily extending its industrial importance. In a few days the big saw mill of the Crookston Lumber company will "blow in" with an interesting 'blowout" by the citizens, and other enterprises are in sight which will greatly augment the "bucket brigade," and will add largely to the city's pay roll. Ralph W. Wheelock in his Thought on Things in the Min neapolis Tribune has the follow ing to say of THE PIONEER: Brother Kaiser has developed his weekly Pioneer at Bemidji into a daily, which- is fearless pi oneering indeed in that part of the state. May luck be wid ye, Edward, at Bemidji. LEGISLATOR GREETED. Peterson of New Ulm Has Made a Hit With His Constituents. New Ulm, Minn., April 29.Friends of Hon. S. D.
