EDWARD KAISER.. Publisher Entered in the postoffice at Bemidji as second-class matter, PUBLISHED EVERY AFTERNOON. Official County and City Paper. If the affairs of tliA city were regarded more in the light of common property, in which all have an interest, and that the money spent in improving streets was also an improvement to their own property, Bemidji would be a, model for all to pattern after within a year. A man does not regret the money he spends on his own front yard. He feels that the expenditure is for him selfto procure something which he wants and something in which he and his family can take pleas ure. Why can't we take that same pleasure in improving our city The chief fault with all game laws is that they make no dis tinction between the rights of needy settlers and those of sportsmen who kill for "glory-" However, it is the policy of the state wardens to make this dis tinction, and that is the worst kind of anarchy. The state should pass no laws that an hon est or merciful officer is ashamed to enforce to the letter. Cut 'em out.- Big Pork Compass.
