I is pretty safe to say that the session of congress which begins November 9th will be one of the longest in the history of the country. The extra session will continue until the first Monday in Decem- ber when the regular session be- gins and before this is done a good six months will probably nave rolled round. Th extra session will deal with matters of partly national concern, but the Tegular long session should be productive of important results for northern Minnesota. Con- gressman Steenerson, Bede and Buckm an have a lot of work cut out for them if they are to do for their constituents all that is at hand to be done.- plain. A effort will be made to opeu FROM TIE the ceded towns on the Red Lake reservation near Thief River Falls and the interests of this section demand that all the agri- thro wn open to settlement. There are thousands of acres of these 1 lands on which no pine is now standing, yet the interior depart- ment clings to them with a tenacity that is difficult to ex- While congress is so busy showering out money for the arid lands of the west it might pause long enough to grant a few thousands too for reclaiming the rich swamp lands of northern Minnesota. These and other matters of equal importance will keep our congressman busy. GETTING OFF THE FRONTIER. The campaign fur reciprocity with Canada moves forward but slowly in Minnesota. Frank M. Eddy has made it one of the planks of the platform upon which he hopes to secure the gubernatorial nomination but even that vigorous campaigner has failed to infuse much life in- to the issue. Reciprocity with Canada in fact can never become an issue in Minnesota for there is but one side to the interests of the state. If we want to get off the frontier of business we have got to geton reciprocity. The sooner we, us a pgpple, come to recognize this iact the sooner we shall begin to realize the great possibilities which are open tu th.j Northwest as a country undivided in its bus- iness interests. The interests of Minnesota and Manitoba of the Dakotas and the allied but the present tariff is a wall that prevents their develop- ment. Until that wall conies down both sides of the interna- tional boundary line can do only a frontier business compared to what is possible. It is time we wore getting off the frontier.

I Will gJVQ tllO people of the city some informa- las to the various methods of in- corporation. The Pioneer invites i those who know of the benefits and advantages of the respective systems to set them forth brief- jly and conciselyinthesecolumns. I is of the utmost importance that this step be rightly taken and no action should be taken without full information.

Tom may help some, but it is pretty apparent that the people are go- ing to nominate and elect Bo Dunn. is much speculation in Chicago as to who will be the western football champion.

Now that Hallowe'en is past the north country is getting its landscape back into place as fast as possible. The common council of Fergus Falls is accused of violating the law at every meeting. Fergus Falls enjoys no distinction in this. Down at Shevlin they think nothing of. twenty-one pound cab bages. Fo vegetable yarns Clearwater county is certainly the clear stuff. Hector claims to be the best trading point in Renville county. Whenthe other townsin the coun ty get through with Hector it will be sadly hectored. Wadena is much excited, if the Tribune may be believed, over the finding of an honest man within its limits. This frequently happens in Bemidji. Even the houses are unsteady their feet in East rand Forks. At least the Courier of that town presents two in an advertisement that look as it they had been out all night and were finding the way home very hilly. Jay L. Reynolds Attorney-at-Law.
