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
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.

yesterday afternoon resulted as
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,
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
