The Daily Pioneer
PUMiISHED EVERY AFTERNOON. PIONEER PUBLISHING CO. By R. W HITCHCOCK. Entered in the postofflce at Bemidji, Minn., as second class matter. Official County and City Paper SUBSCRIPTION $5 PER YEARful 1903 NOVEMBER 1903 Su. Mo. Tu. We. 1 8 Th. 2 9 Fr. 3 10 17 24 4 II 1 8 15 22 29 5 23 30 6 7 12 19 26 16 13 20 27 14 21 28 25 LEARNING THE TRUTH. The misapprehension which exists among people otherwise well informed in regard to the quality and kind of agricultural lands in the vicinity of Bemidji is something to be marveled at. Ninety-nine people out of every one hundred believe that the ter ritory tributary to Bemidji is pure jack pine soil and they are more or less sceptical as to the virtue of jack pine lands for agri cultural purposes. Leaving the discussion of jack pine lands for farming for the future the Pioneer wishes to point out how great is the error into which the general public has fallen with regard to the lands of this section. Bemidji itself is situated upon a narrow strip of sandy land but to the south and to the north is as fine black loam as one can see in traveling across the continent. Three miles south of Bemidji and five miles north finds the finest farming lands in the world. South of Bemilji are broad acres of black loam with a clay subsoil extending all through northern Hubbard county and west to the Red River Valley. North of Bemidji to the inter national boundary line are found the same lands. Mori to be de sired are these! lands than the famed lands of the Red River Valley, for the latter are treeless prairies, while the Beltrami county lands are timbered with the finest oak, birch and other hard woods. When the land hungry from Iowa, Illinois and other states to the south of us learn tho truth concerning Beltrami county lands there will be such a rush to this section as northernMinnesotahas never yet seen. HE Pioneer is glad to note that others are also moving in the direction of national aid for the drainage of northern Minnesota lands and that the introduction of a bill in congress as urged by the Pioneer some days ago pro viding for an appropriation for drainage will undoubtedly be made. We may rest assured that Congressmen Steenerson, Buckman and Bede will use their every endeavor to push such a bill through. HE Pioneer is pleased to know that its efforts to give Bemidji and its tributary territory a first class news service, general and local, is being more thoroughly appreciated every day. Thannouncement steady increase of subscribers to both the daily and weekly edi tions of the Pioneer attest the fact that the people of northern Minnesota want an up-to-date daily newspaper. Within three weeks the Daily Pioneer has nearly doubled its circulation and the weekly has made consider able ains. Such support on the part of the people means a news paper which will be constantly bettered and whose influence in the development of this wonder section will steadily yield the people of northern Minnesota greater returns. I TUESDAY'S Sa. elections prove anything Wall street will have to do..a lot better during the next twelve months in its campaign against Roosevelt than it has in the past twelve or it will simply advertise its own helplessness. It seems to be the fate of Roose velt's enemies that their opposi tion simply makes the president grow greater.

Uruguayan Police and Brazilian Citi zens Clash. New York, Nov. 6.A serious com bat has taken place on the Brazilian frontier between the Uruguayan police and Brazilians, says a Herald dispatch from Montevideo, Uruguay. Several persons were killed and a number wounded. The Uruguayan police arrestee! a man named Gentil Gomez at Riviera. Residents of Santa Ana Doiivramento thereupon crossed the boundary line and made an attack. According to official dispatches from Riviera the mayor of Santa Ana, who a brother of Gomez, demanded his surrender. The executive of Riviera refused the mayor's request, where upon that official arrived at the fron tier with a regiment of cavalry and numerous armed persons. Later telegrams say that the Bra zilians opened fire upon the Uruguay ans, killing four persons and wound ing several others. Finally the execu tive of Riviera announced that his own soldiers, charged with the cus tody of Gomez, had gone off to Brazil with the prisoners. FRESH PLEDGE OF PEACE. I Recent Meeting of Czar and Emperor William. St. Petersburg, Nov. 6.The meet ing of the czar and Emperor William at Wiesbaden Wednesday is comment ed on by the newspapers here as being a fresh pledge of the preservation of general peace. The Novosti's remarks attract especial attention as they reit erate the suggestion of an Anglo-Rus siau rapproachment, which has been recently mooted by. some Russian pub licists. The Novosti contests the idea that Russia and Great Britain must remain rivals and says the clearest proof of this is found in Great Brit ain's absolutely peaceful policy and the influence she has exercised on Japan in the present Russian-Japanese differences.
