BOWSER ACTION OF TRUSTEE CAME AS A SURPRISE AT THE COUNCIL MEETING. HE WANTS TO RESIGN FROM OFFICE. Gives as a Reason That Duties Interferes With His Regular Business. At thecouncil meeting last night Trustee ~W. N. Bowser sur prised the others present by handing in his resignation. No excuse was given for his action, other than that his duties as a city father interfered to too great an extent with his regular mercantile business. He says that he oannot properly attend to both his store and the duties con nected with his office of trustee at the same time. The resigna tion was laid on the tableland will be acted upon at the meeting next Monday night. Mr. Bowser was elected to the position at the regular election last March, and has since acted in complete harmony with the rest of the council. It has been remarked that those who hold the reins of the town's government in their hands have been unusu ally harmonious. In an interview this morning Mr. Bowser said: I have no other reason to give for handing in my resignation other than that I cannot devote the proper atten tion to the office and at the same time run my business here as it should be run. I have nothing whatever against my brother members, the president or any one connected with the town gov ernment. We have always worked in harmony. Besides Mr. Bowser's resig nation nothing of very great im portance came up at the meeting to be acted upon. The petition asking for an extension of Be midji avenue, signed, by quite a number of citizens, was laid on the table. Before the next meet ing the matter of the extension will be investigated. The advance agent for Camp bell's circus asked for a permit to give a performance in Bemidji on July 4. He wanted too many concessions, in the opinion of the councilmen, and no agreement was reached.

Representative From Ninth Re- turns From Washington, Where He Argued Land Office Location Congressman Halvor Steener son returned from Washington Sunday morning, where he had gone to look after the location of the new land ofrice at Bemidji rather than at Cass Lake, accord ing to the present program. He was very wroth relative to the story which is going the rounds to the effect that he agreed tojbhe location of the office at Cass Lake at a conference of the Minne sota delegation last March. "The story that is being told around that I agreed to the loca tion of the new land office at Cass Lake last spring at the confer ence of the Minnesota delegation at Washington and then went back on that agreement is an un qualified falsehood. I never agreed to the location of the office at Cass Lake* and Bernard^ Buckman or anyone else who was there and says so tells what he knows is not true. What I did agree to was the boundaries of the proposed district and noth ing more. "I went before the secretary of the interior department this trip and argued for the location of the office at Bemidji. Secre tary Hitchcock save me a very attentive hearing. I argued the matter for an hour or more and he agreed to take the matter up and give it a thorough investiga tion. I was accompanied on my visit to the secretary by Tarn's Bixby and Attorney Bailey of Bemidji. The matter will be taken up when Commissioner Richards of the general land office returns from his trip to the west. This will be on the 20th of the present month. "Relative to the Red Lake reservation matter, it will be taken up as soon as Major Mc Laughlin's report reaches the secretary. We are trying to have the negotiations resumed without the sections 16 and 20 clause, and the Pembina Indians left out."
