EFFICIENT SERVICE. A strong example of the ability of the members of the Bemidji police department to protect the interests of the city was noted Saturday. Despite the fact that it was the Fourth of'July and what is known as "circus day," there were no reports of thefts or crimes of any nature. There were a great many peo ple from out of town in Bemidji for the purpose of having a good time. Lumberjacks and young fellows from the surrounding towns were bumping together through the day at the different resorts, and it would not have been strange had there been a few disturbances. Neither would it have been surprising had there been robberies committed. Four extra policemen were added to the force during the day and evening, and under the direction of Chief _Bailey the other members of the force maintained such a close watch that the operations of the would be law-breakers were foiled. Not a single report of loss of property was registered, and the police force succeeded in ably demon strating the efficiency of the de partment. There was one saloon brawl during the evening, but it was not of a serious nature and the disturbance was soon quelled. THE Litchfield Saturday Re view has the following to say of Bemidji, in its article on the trip recently taken to 'Cass Lake, Walker and Bemidji by the North western Editorial association: On the M. & I. evening train we were whisked to Bemidji, which is the metropolis of the cities visited, numbering ^1,000 people. Bemidji is not over four years old, has had a mushroom growth, but is there to stay. It is wide awake and full of push. It de pends on the woods for a living, but at some future time will be the center of an community. The Daily Pioneer!COMPETENT ME N agricultural ROCHE IS NOT GUILTY.
