ARRESTEDSALOON KEEPER Alleged J. M. Hanson Sold Intoxicating Liquor to Indians. NO W OUT UNDER ONE THOUSAN DOLLAR BONDS. Hanson Denies the Charge and Will Be Given a Hearing. J. M. Hansen, who keeps a sa loon on Third street, was arrested yesterday afternoon for selling intoxicating liquor to the Indians now in town. This offense is a serious one against the govern ment and is punishable by a heavy fine or a sentence of sev eral years in prison. Mr. Han sen is to have a hearing within the next few days. He is out on 41,000 bail. The police Jaave been aware for the past few days that the Indi ans have been getting whiskey from local saloon men but up to yesterday afternoon no con victing evidence could be se cured. Two of the Indians who were in an intoxicated condition were searched yesterday and whiskey, or a vile liquor,. almost pure alchohol, sold as whiskey, was found in bottles on their persons. They readily agreed to tell who sold them the liquor and guided the police officers to Han sen's saloon, pointing out Mr. Hansen, as the man who had sold them the stuff. The saloon keeper denied the charge but was arrested nevertheless. It is .said that plenty of convicting evi dence can be secured. Others in town are suspected of selling .so-called whiskey to the Indians. Other arrests are likely to fol low. We mix paints to order. Jones6t Harry Grove of Big Fork is in town.

Leave your orders for paper hanging, decorating, painting and Contest Was Only a School Boy Exhibition of the Game. FAIR SIZED CROW ATTENDED THE EXERCISES. Ben Tibbetts and Roy Dennis Were Winners in the Foot Race. The contests at the fairgrounds yesterday afternoon resulted as follows: The ball game between White Earth Indians and the Bemidji team was won by the latter by a score of 23 to 4. Indian foot race, 200 yards, first prize, Ben Tibbetts of Deer River second prize, Frank Ma son of Deer River. Free-for-all foot race, 200 yards first prize, Roy Dennis second prize, H. D. Arnold third prize, R. English. Claude Dudrey won first prize in the pony race. There was a fair sized crowd in attendance at the exercises, which, because of several of the contestants failing to appear, did not run very smoothly. The events were late in getting started and there were vexatious delays. The ball game was tiresome. It was nothing but a school boy exhibition at best, and to compel the onlookers to witness more than two of the draggirg and uninteresting inn ings was an insult to their intel ligence. Half the people went home before the game was any where near finished, and the other half only remained because there were to be horse races after the game. Bemidji play ers dear ly outclassed their In diaivtopponeiits at all points. T^k races were interesting. Ben^Tibbets, the Indian who won in the Indian's race, would like wise have carried off first place in the free-for-all, it is claimed, but the whites took an unfair ad vantage of him and he did not run. There tered in jockeys BEMIDJI WON THE A BIG CAMP FIRE BALL GAM E were four ponies en tile horse race.
