Great Movement of Farm
Lands of Northwest Evi
dently J)one,
Interest of .Northwest Diverted
to Northern Minnesota
The great real estate boom of
the past two years which was
without a parallel in the history
of the Northwest is evidently off
and while thousands of speculat
ors find themselves with large
bunches of Canadian and North
Dakota lands on hand with no
prospect of any easy market in
the near future there is no notice
able change in the condition of
the local market. To be sure it
is not as brisk at present as it
was some time ago, but the indi
cations are that it will pick up
Every real estate office in the
city has a large number of in
quiries about lands in this sec
tion of the country and partic
ularly about those that'may still
be homesteaded. They come
from all sections of the United
States and indicate a healthy
interest in the future of this sec
tion of Northern Minnesota. A
well known real estate man said
thisjacrwring that while it was
du/U at present he believed that
next year would be one of the
busiest seasons for land men
that has ever been had in this
country. There is a noticeable
diverson of the attention of the
land seeking public from the
prairie lands of the Northwest to
the timber lands of Northern
Minnesota and it is being stimu
lated by the unfavorable fall's
weather which has prevailed in
the extreme Northwest and has
caused great damage and incon
venience in threshing and har
vesting the wheat and flax crops.
The opening of the hunting
season will bring a large number
of land seekers to this section.
They will combine business with
pleasure and while hunting wilh
also attempt to locate claims and
desirable property. This section
of Minnesota is nevdr better ad
vertised than during the hunting
season and with favorable
weather there is no time of the
year when it can be seen to much
better advantage.
Dates Fixed For November and
It Will Be a Big
The dates for the annual fair
of St. Philip's Catholic church
have been fixed for November 26,
27, and 28. The fair will take
place at the city hall and will be
one of the biggest undertakings
of the kind which has ever oc
curred in Northern Minnesota.
There will be the usual bazaar
and all the other features and
the ladies of the church have a
committee as well as the men,
who will spare no pains from now
until the fair is over to make it
the entire success it should be.
Why is it that Daily Pioneer
want ads bring such good results?
Major Scott Pays Annuities to
the Cass Lake Red Men
Tomorrow will be a big day for
the Cass Lake Indians, when
Major Scott, the government
agent, will disburse ihe govern
ment annuities among the In
dians on the Cass Lake reserva
tion The Cass Lake payment is
one of the largest which the gov
ernment makes in the state and
it is always a gala occasion. The
Indians have been in the ha bit of
spending much of their money
for liquor heretofore, but the
government agents will be
especially vigilant this year and
there will be small opportunity
for the bootleggers to get in
their work. The Indians will
spend most of their money at
Cass Lake and while it lasts* the
Cass Lake business public will
have a thriving trade.
Cigars on Olney.
The cigars will be on J. J.. Olcamp
ney, the well known traveling
man, when he returns from his
easterntrip. Mr. Olney last week
brought up a fine large muskal
longe which he had caught at
Cass Lake. The fish weighed
twenty-four pounds and Mr. Olmeat,
ney announced without a tremor
that it was the largest one he had
ever caught. Now comes the
Cass Lake Voice with a story to
the effect that while Mr. Olney
was a member of the party who
caught the fish he did not actual
ly take it himself but admired it
so much that ib was sold to him
at a reasonable figure.
Somebody Has It In For Jim.
Just what's the matter nobody
knows but somebody living near
the line of the Great Northern
evidently has it in for the road.
Yesterday a large strip of track
was found oiled about a mile
west of the city station. The
oil was placed where the heavy
trains make their start going
west with the evident intention
of causing annoyance. Several
things of this sort have recently
03curred and the company's
snecial agents will investigate.
Wheat Rash is On.
The shipments of North Da
kota wheat to the markets at the
head of the lake have begun in
earnest and the Cass Lake divi
sion of the Great Northern is
busier than ever just at present.
The terminal yards at Carman
are frequently blockaded and
have recently occasioned trouble.
The Great Northern's line from
Grand Porks to Duluth probably
hxndles more wheat than any line
btTaiTroad in the world.
The Football Game.
Bemidji people who wish lo

Lillemoe Will Live.
Oscar Lillemoe, the young man
who was injured by being hit by
a Great Northern train at Mcin
tosh Monday afternoon, is re

likely recover. It was found
necessary to amputate the right
arm at the shoulder.

Tote Wagon of Kirk & Smith
Robbed North of Town
Last Night
Tote Wagon Troke Down and
Was Left in the Woods
Over Night.
John Kirk, who has been driv
ing a tote wagon for Kirk &
Smith, who are about to open
caanp about nine miles north of
this city next Monday, is looking
for the man who robbed Jiis tote
wagon last night after it had
broken down and was left in the
road and secured enough grocer
ies to last an ordinary family all
Kirk started from this city for
last night with a load of
supplies and about six miles
north of Bemidji one of the axles
on the wagon broke down and he
was compelled to leave the load
over night in the woods. It con
sisted of three barrels of mince
a barrel of vmegar, 500
pounds of raisins, several cases
of ham, weighing in the neigh
borhood of 300 pouni and a bar
rel of lard, besides other pack
ages of groceries in smaller
bundles. This morning when he
returned to the wagon the load
had disappeared. At one side of
the road were tracks where an
other wagon had driven up and
taken the load on.. The tracks
wera followed to a farm house,
but none of *ttie goods could be
found. The barrd of vinegar
was jund floating out in the lake
and a boat was taken out to
bring it in. The other stuff has
disappeared entirely. Mr. Kirk
was in the city at noon for an
other load of supplies. Farmers
living in that yici.iity are accused
of the thefb and it will
thoroughly investigated.

dence of Dr. Morrison, occurred

More Mtn Hired for the Woods in
Bemidji Than in Any Citv
Outside Duluth.
Men for work in the woods
have been quite plentiful for the
last few days. The fall's work
in North Dakota is about con
cluded and many of them are re
turning. It is not estimated
that as many men will be hired
in Bemidji this year for the
woods as next, but still a large
number will secure employment
here. The wages are^gher at
present thai they will be in the
future. The contractors are of
fering from S26 to 30 per month
for sawyers and swampers and
when the men stay through the
season there is an arrangement
whereby they get a trifle more.
It is estimated that outside of
Duluth more men ai hired for
labor in the woods in Bemidji
than any town in the state. No
less than 30,000 men were hired
out of this city at various times
last fall and while the number
will not be so large this year it
will be,.cnsiderably.abov 20,000.
