EDWARD KAISER., Publisher Entered tn the postomee at Bemidji ae Becond-class matter. PUBLISHED EVERY AFTERNOON. Official County and Citv Paper. CANADIAN PACIFIC "SOO." Not the Canadian Soo at Sault Ste Marie, but the Canadian Pa cific Soo railway company which Minneapolis is just now pelting. A New York dispatch in the Min neapolis Journal is as follows: Canadian Pacific was bought yesterday for Montreal account and probably for London as well. It is not thought there will be any difficulty in placing the new issue of stock as the London market will readily take it. Canadian Pacific stock is own ed almost exclusively in Canada and Great Britain, and its div idends are paid where the stock is owned. The Canadian Pacific owns a large majority of the "Soo" stock, and receive whatever div- ,S idends are paid upon it. Thomas Lowry and his Minneapolis friends have been having lots of fun kicking the minority stock up and down in Wall street, and playing foot ball at the expense of the good people of Minneapolis and Minnesota. There are always a lot of fool Americans who would sooner pay freight to an Englishman or some sort of a foreigner than to their own neighbors Oand the surest way for a man to provoke the enmity of his fellow Ameri cans is to go and and buy out English or German stockholders, and begin paying dividends over the bank counters in St. Paul or Minneapolis instead of sending bank drafts to Montreal, London --0r Berlin. No self-respecting American can afford to keep still while his neighbor is collecting freight moneys and putting the same back into American railroads and steamships. No American having "hoss" sense will own railroads in his own state and ex pect to keep the good will of his respectable neighbors. Thep'Soo" railroad is IT. None of its controlling board of direc tors can be reached by any pro cess of any court in the United States, and its dividends flow as easily and naturally to London as do those of the diamond mines of South Africa. Even the abor iginals of White Earth are scrap ing their feet on the front porch of the Canadian Pacific Soo railways. DROPS DEAD. Farmer's Body Is Found at Bottom of a Waterhole.

Miner Meets Death in a Particularly Horrible Way. Butte, Mont., May 8.Emll Bouthel ler, a miner in the Cambria mine, met, a horrible death yesterday, beingj slowly crushed between the side of thei shaft and the top of the cage until all life was extinct. Three miners riding with Boutheller at the time of the ac cident saw him reel, apparently as in a fit, and the next minute his head and shoulders vanished from view.
