EXTEND LINES
Great Northern and Sooare Build
ing Cross Country
Lines.
The Great Northern will ex
tend its Pelican Eapids branch
through the White Earth reser
vation, parelleling the Soo line
survey of its projected Glenwood
St. Vincent for a considerable
distance, to a connection at Foss
ton with its cross-country line
from Duluth to Carman.
The route of the Great North
ern extension as given on semi
official authority, is from Pelican
Rapids, via Buck Mills, Oak Lake,
Richwood, White Earth, Beaulieu
and Hansvillo to Fosston. The
territory covered lies between
the Great Northern's main line
west and its Park Rapids branch,
and has no railway facilities at
present except the cross lino of! of the settlers in this
the Northern Pacific in the ex-1 regard to the land office
tremo southern portion. It is
considered probable that the
White Earth reservation will be
opened within a few years, af
fording, with the extensive agri
cultural districts north and south
of it, an excelle nt field for rail

Police Armed With Rifles Quell the

Leavenworth, Kan." July 14.Unit-
ed States soldiers from Fort Leaven
worth attempted to lynch Everidge
WilliamT'affa Walter Brown, negroes,
last night, and for more than an hour
the entire police force was kept busy
quelling the trouble. Williams and
Brown had engaged in a row with sol
diers and one of them fired a number
of shots at a soldier. The soldiers
then congregated in gre|t nurnbi
and it was decided to lynch the ne
groes if they could be found. Twenty
five soldiers and a number of citizens
went to the homes of Williams and
Brown and surrounded both houses.
Ropes had been secured and every
thing was in readiness for a lynching.
Policemen with rif.es and revolvers
appeared on the scene and finally suc
ceeded in getting Brown and Williams
away to the police station. A number
of soldiers with revolvers were arrest
ed, but were later released.

he bad gone to ask directions to the
house of a man whose acquaintance he
had formed while in jail here. Folck
pointed out the way and then, arming
himself, followed after Mullins and
ordered him to surrender, firing as he
did so. The bullet went wild and
Mullins ran toward a near-by corn
field. Folck shot again and Mullins
fell, but he had not been wounded, ana
when Folck came up a moment later
he surrendered. Mullins was unarmed.

interest to the town Mr. Bixby
said:
'The proposition to have a
summer, hotel built on the lake is
a good one. I would be a line
thing for Bemidji. If no individ
ual can be induced to start such
an institution I am in favor of
forming a stock company among
the citizens of the village for the
purpose of erecting one. I am
willing to contribute my share.
A competent man could be en-j
gaged to run the hotel and I be
lieve it wou ld soon make Bemidji
popular as a summer resort. I
don't mean that the stock com
pany should be organized as a
money making proposition.
Whether the hotel paid or not the
benefits accruing to the town
from its summer visitors would
pay the stockholders for money
invested.
"Bemidji is the best town in
the state and is talked about the
most. You hear it mentioned
everywherein the big cities,
small towns and on the railroad
trains. Especially is this true in
St. Paul. Bemidji has a healthy
appearance this summer. Its
growth is rapid and seems to be
substantial. The people should
work to get another sawmill.
There are too many logs passing
unsawed through the town. The
citizens should also endeavor to
secure the establishment of
wholesale houses, particularly a
wholesale grocery house, in Be
midji. There is a big country
tributary to the town and there
should be wholesa le houses
here."
