THE DAILY PIONEER
EDWARD KAISER., Publisher I Entered In the postofliee at Bemidji as second-class matter. PUBLISHED3EVERY AFTERNOON'. Official County and City Paper. SHAME-FACED CONVERTS. It has required an approach to a cataclysm in the financial world, brought on by their own foolish uterances, to convince some Minnesota newspapers that James J. Hill and his inter ests are the interests of tlie whole people of Minnesota. While the decision in the merger case, so far as practical good to Minnesota is concerned, was a complete flash in the pan, it did nevertheless for another six months at least prevent the New York and London stock exchange listing the Northern Securities Company as beyond all cavill en titled to the confidence of the in vesting public. To that extent it has tied the hands of both the Great Northern and Northern Pacific railways in Minnesota, so far as any considerable exten sion ot lines is concerned. The business men of^Minne apolis and St. Paul saw fit to tie their faith to Van Sant and tb% Canadian Pacific-Soo raiLway company. Mr. Hill in turn sold out his lake steamships to the Chicago-New York lines of rail way. The Minneapolis flour mills closed down. The Chicago New York lines made a slight concession on rates, and the mills resumed operations. And now Minneapolis proposes to pin her faith still further to the Can adian line, and "holler" for the Soo extension to Winnipeg and for reciprocity with Canada. The Minneapolis business man and his newspapers nave struck a crazy streak, for they will not get a line to Winnipeg nor re ciprocity with Canada. But the Minneapolis Journal, the St. Paul Dispatch and the Crookston Times (all rampant Van Sant anti-merger newspap ers) are wise enough not to want a tie-up of the Great Northern for nothing, and are urging the trainmen to vote against a strike. This is as it should be and THE PIONEER is pleased to note that the newspapers named have even at this late lay came to some sort of realization of what their past conduct is producing. But it is to be feared that they have stirred up a hurricane which can not be easily quieted, and that their reformation is late in the day, to late to-be.of benefit to the people of this state, whose un swering patriot and hard work ing servant Mr. Hill has always been. Minneapolis Fair. Minneapolis is to have another June fair and carnival this year, June 1st to 13th inclusive. It is to be held on the same location as the Elks fair of last year and will be conducted along the same lines with manufacturing and mercantile exhibits combined with some elaborate amusement features, big parades, etc. There will be excursion rates on all railroads to Minneapolis during the fair. A big fireworks spec tacle is to be a leading feature and two hundred performers will appear in the various entertain ments to be presented in the midway. The cycle sensation, Loop the Loop, is positively as sured. Even the gas bill has a BVX, The sex we think the sweeter. For though her presence oft may vex W. always have no meter. THROUGH WHITE EARTH. Three Roads Are Busily Engaged in Making Surveys. White Earth, Minn., May 5. Last week the right of way agent of the Soo road was on the reservation ascer taining the names of the different al lottees through whose allotments the railway route will run, and perfecting other arrangements in connection therewith. This week the attorney and right of way agent for the Great Northern are at the agency engaged in similar employments. Both routes are running parallel to each other and only half a mile apart and about four miles west of the agency and through the agricultural belt of the reserva tion. The Northern Pacific is running a survey.which ^uts the reservation from the southeast to the northwest, which will pass through the timber belt of the reservation and in close proximity to *he finest fishing and duck grounds of the state. FEAR FOUL PLAY". Mre. Delp's Parents Have No Trace of Her Whereabouts. Osceola, Wis., May. 5.Mrs. Conrad Delp, formerly a resident of this place, and who disappeared from her home in South St. Paul last Friday, is still missing. She was an exemplary young woman Gt twenty-one, and left her eight-months-old babe behind. Her father and mother are doing all they can to find her. It was at first sup posed that she came to the home of her parents at this place, but no trace of her can be found any further than the union depot at St. Paul. She had no cause whatever to leave her home, as everything was very agreeable, but stated a few days previous to her de parture that she was homesick, but did not ask to go home. Her disap pearance is shrouded In mystery, and foul play is suspected by her father and mother. INDIANS WILL CELEBRATE. Sioux Will Join the Chippewas in a Jollification. White Earth, Minn., May 5.
