Official County and City Paper.
BEMIDJI IS BOOMING.
The Great County and Its Thrifty
County Seat Forging to
The Crookston Times of yes
terday contains the following in
teresting item under the above
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
AuditorD. L. Sylvester.
Clerk 61 CourtF. W. Rhoda.
TreasurerO J. Shinn.
judge of ProbateM. A. Clark.
Associate Judge Fifteenth Dis-

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.

into a daily, which- is fearless pi
oneering indeed in that part of
