John Anderson, 20 years old, an employe at the Crookston Lumber company's mill, was dixrwned in Lake Bemidji yester day afternoonabout3o'clock. He was in bathing at the time near the dock where logs are unloaded from the cars. There were three companions with him, but they were so excited that they were unable to save his life, although he met death in a spot where the lake was only eight feet deep. The young man has no relations in Bemidji. He has a sister, Mrs. E. E. Johnson, in St. Paul, but his parents live in the old country. Anderson, with three compan ions, engaged a boat and went out for a ride early in the after noon. They rowed about the lake for a time. When near the unloading dock Anderson pro posed that they take a swTim. Two companions were agreeable, but the other preferred being taken to shore. He and Ander son were the only ones that could swim. After splashing about in shal low water near shore for a time Anderson climbed into the boat and. was rowed out to where the water was two or three feet over his head. The young man had no bathing suit on, and when one of the gasoline launches with ladies on board approached he told his friends to row the boat ashore, saying that he would swi in after them. He accordingly jumped overboard and the boat started for the shore. It had gone but a short distance when Anderson began to call for help and struggle about in the water. The men in the boat thought he was only fooling, and continued rowing away. A few seconds later Anderson sank from sight. He came to the surface again but immediately disappeared. His friends became alarmed at this and rowed back, but he did not appear for a third time. They reached the spot and sawT Accident Occurred While the Judge Spooner Makes Decis- Young Man Was in Bath- ion New to State of ing Yesterday. Minnesota. his body on the bottom of the lake, so near that they could touch it with an oar. They could not swim and were afraid to risk their lives, so rowed back to shore and took the other man on board. The lake is shallow for a long distance out at this point, and by the time they returned to the scene of the- accident, got the body out and towed it ashore there were no hopes of bringing An-derson back to life, as they did., not know what methods to adopt. The body is now at E. L. Nay lor's undertaking rooms await ing some word from the sister and brother-in-law in St. Paul. Was a Success. The picnic and excursion to Cass Lake yesterday, given for the benefit of the Bemidji band, was an unqualified success. The special train of three coaches with, a good crowd of local people on board left the Bemidji depot at 7%Ab in the morning and re- turned about 9:30 o'clock in the evening. At Cass Lake as many more people got on. The boat Zeila May had been chartered for the occasion and was boarded below town by the picnicers. The Indian Mission and other points of interest were visited on the lake. The weather was ideal and the day was thoroughly enjoyed. HE ESTABLISHES A PRECEDENT MA N MUST PAY ALIMOXY BIT GETS N O DIVORCE. The Question Decided Is a New One in This State. Judge Spooner late Saturday afternoon established a precedent in the state of Minnesota in ren dering a decision on the suit for divorce brought by William F. Baier of Minneapolis against Florence Baier. The court found that the plain tiff was not entitled to any relief in this action and that the de fendant was entitled to judg ment "that the plaintiff take nothing by this action: and. further, that that judgment be entered herein upon the defend ant's application heretofore made herein, awarding her the sum of $100 as additional attorney's fees incurred by her in defending this action, and for the sum of $4U on account of additional ex penses incurred by her subse quent to the previous order of the court herein allowing her suit money and not provided for in such order, and that judgment be entered herein in favor of the defendant and against the plain tiff, awarding her until further order or judgment of this court the sum of si* per month.' The husband will pay this amount to his wife on the first of every month, beginning with July. The question as to whether or not the court is authorized upon denying the plaintiff's applica tion for divorce, to grant the de fendant an allowance for her maintenance during such time as the parties may live separate and apart is an entirely new one in this state, and Judge Spooner is the first to render a decision on it. It will therefore bo of con siderable interest, not only to Be midji lawyers, but to attorneys throughout the state as well. In this case Judge Spooner was acting for a judge of the Fourth judicial district. The husband in the case was 23 years old and the wife 18. They were married on September 24, 19)2 and separated on December 4 following. Cruel and inhuman treatment was alleged, but the showing made by the plaintiff fell far short of proving this on the part of the defendant. The causes leading to the separation, the court states in the decision rendered, were absurdly trivial, and the probabilities are that there will be a reconciliation. .Should this occur the order and judgment relative to support and maintenance can, upon applica tion, be modified.

PROPOSITION IS FEASIBLE Mcintosh Times Endorses a Move to Divert Waters of Clearwater. SAYS ACTION WOULD BENEFIT ALL CONCERNED. Also Asserts That It Would Be of Great Advantage to Crookston. The Mcintosh Times has the1 following to say on the proposi tion to divert the waters of thoj Clearwater river into the Missis sippi: The proposition to turn the I head waters of the Clearwater river into the Mississipi, which is outlined in another column, is one of the most feasible proposi tions -yet advanced for prevent ing, of assisting in preventing Hooding of the Red river valley, caused largely by the fact that these upper tributaries break up before the river itself. The proposition also has the additional advantage of improving the river and the lands filong its banks, tending to keep its waters within its banks and thereby preventing in a measure the overflowing of a large area of fertile agricultural land now rendered worthless be cause of the overflow resulting from the overcharged condition of the upper Clearwater. With its head waters turned into the Mississippi the Clearwater would still have all the water to care for that its banks will hold, and in stead of injury being done great benefit would result to all con cerned. While there is little occasion for such action, it is ex pected that Crookston. in its blind jealousy, will oppose this improvement in the interest of its 2x4 water power company, and this in spite of the fact that, the city as a. whole would be benefited byotho turning of these Hood waters and thereby dimin ishing both the frequency and severity of the fioodings so often experienced by many of its resi dents. $20,000 A TO N Report of Rich Find Xear the Property of the Iron Mountain Co. Reports of rich finds on prop erty.surrounding the Pilot Moun tain Company property con tinue to come in and it looks as though the Bemidji men back of the Pilot Mountain Company had a rich proposition. The prop erty is located in North Carolina. The following report from Char lotte, N. C, concerns a mine 1* miles from that of the Bemidji parties, which was purchased-at the same time as the Pilot Moun tain mine: "Within the last few weeks, but more particularly within the last few days, a fortune lias been taken out of the Harringer mine, near Misenheimer Springs, in Stanley county, by the Whitney Reduction Company, of this city, which ownS this and iny other mining properties.

The ore contains masses of almost pure gold as large as a man's list. Capt. K. I?. C. Uam bly, president of the Whitney Co., said that in a long and varied mining experience he had never before seen such rich ore. And there may be a great, deal more of it. The two-foot vein from which it. was taken was first struck 65 feet under ground and has now been followed to a depth of loi) feut, growing richer with the descent- How much further it goes is large ly a matter of con jecture, but the indications ]oin to a considerable continuance. Such results as these show what can be done by a powerful Cor poration, possessing ample capi tal and having nothing to do with the stock market. "North Carolina mines have acquired an undeserved bad rep utation because of their having fallen into the hands of stock gamblers in the vast majority of cases. The stock jobbing scheme would explode, whether with profit or loss to the promoters, before the mine had a fair chance.
