PUBLISHED EVERY AFTERNOON. PIONEER PUBLISHING CO By R. W. HITCHCOCK. Entered in the postofflce at BomldJ.I, Minn., as second class matter.

As the Pioneer predicted two days ago the announcement of the candidacy of Judge Collins for governor has fallen flat. Re ports from central and southern Minnesota are to the effect that there is little interest in thesouth Judge's announcement outside of St. Cloud, his home town. In northern Minnesota his candi dacy of Judge Collins scarcely evokes comment of any kind. The truth is that the state is indifferent to Collins. He is reJudge cognized as an able jurist and an honest man but the people of the state want a man for governor who is closely in touch with their interests. They want a man who appreciates the great ness of the state's resources a man who puts his faith and energy into its development a man who they know is for Minne sota first, last and all time with the knowledge and capacity to get there. The people of Minne sota want a man of action. About the only action Judge Collins has shown is to periodi cally announce himself as a can didate for governor. That the announcement of the Judge's entry as a gubernatorial candi date has fallen so flat shows that while the people of Minnesota know him for an able judge they fully appreciate that he is not a man of affairs. Judge Collins' candidacy wrill in no wise jeopardize the chances ef Robert C. Dunn. The move ment for the nomination of Dunn pounds. has been spontaneous all over the state. Such a unanimous demand for any man, coming from all parties, has never been known in Minnesota before. The governor and a good many more want to, but there is only one man that the people of Minne sota have asked to be governor and that man is Robert C. Dunn. v1 HE News of this city speaks right to the purpose when it roundly condemns the practice of encouraging the advertising fakirs who have been so numer ously represented here of late. If the newspaper men of this city went out of town to buyjecn their groceries and clothing the merchants of Bemidji would do a pretty emphatic stunt of fault finding and with good reason. The newspapers of the town are the best advertising medium that the merchants can have. Money paid to foreign fakirs does neither the merchants, the newspaper men or the city any good. ABOUT I S 'THE I people of Minnesota know that' should not be discouraged Dunn is the best qualified man in the state for governor. They have started to make him srover- nor and when the whole people and marked Dunn a a man of and succeeded in dispatching and run extraordinary capacity. He known to be the most fearless and independent of men yet his popularity is unbounded. He knows more about Minnesota and the proper method of adcers ministering its government for the protection and advancement of the interests of the whole state than any other living man and time has demonstrated that he is mighty good at putting his knowledge into practice. Two men have asked the people of Minnesota to make them passes that HARDLY a day does not add some convincing proof of the great variety of the resources of the country of which Bemidji is the center. Hard woods and fruitful lands lie both to the: north and the while the material for man ufactures are to be found on every hand. It needs but to dis cover a coal mine or two to make the tale complete. all the enthusiasm Collins' candidacy for gov ernor has aroused in the state seems to be confined to the demo cratic papers.

Chicago, Nov. 14.The Chicago city railway during the morning inaugur ated in earnest the movement of cars on the Wentworth Avenue electric line ning down town five trains without in- 1S jury either to operatives or coaches. Awed by the presence of a strong force of police the mobs confined their disapproval to jeers and catcalls. The first cars left the barns at 8:30. They were made up in five trains with fifteen policemen on each train. Two patrol wagons filled with offi followed. Though there was much excitement and the streets were thronged with people little actual trouble was ex perienced by the leading cars during the trip to the business district. Th cars started on the return trip on al most schedule time. Pour teamsters were arrested at intervals along the way for attempting to block the way and were put aboard the cars. Three hundred police were detailed to accompany the cars on their runs, while upward of a thousand men were scattered along the,line and about the powerhouses and barns of the com pany. GREAT RESERVOIR PLANNED. Irrigation Project Causes Withdrawal of Two Million Acres. Great Falls, Mont., Nov. 14.One ol the greatest withdrawals of entry land by the interior department since the irrigation law was enacted has been ordered in Northern Montana, the lo cal land office receiving instructions to suspend from entry, except under the restricted homestead clause, as provided for under the provisions oi the national irrigation law, 2,142,000 acres in the Great Falls land district. The withdrawal is made in order to preserve to the public the lands in volved for reclamation under the ir rigation law, should the secretary of the interior decide to authorize the construction of the St. Mary's irriga tio canal on the Milk river, a pro which is one of the largest and most extensive planned by the gov ernment In the reclamation of the arid lands of the West. A tract of land several hundred miles square will be reclaimed through the agency of a gigantic reservoir created by a canal from the Milk river. This reservoir will necessitate the abandonment of about twenty miles of track of the Great Northern railway, the site of which will be under from eighteen to twenty feet of water when the reser voir is full. It will take the Mil river canal two years to fill this reser voir. FURS! Rich and Varied Assortment. All New Styles for the Coming Season. Our display is unequaled in the entire northwest.
