to Establish Rigid
MMDIAN SOUTHWESTERN RY.
PASSES UP THE TOWN.
County Physician Must Travel
Over 400 Miles to Get to
Scene of Trouble.
little village of
Beaudette in the northwestern
part of Beltrami county is just
now ostracised from the outside
world so far as communication is
concerned by reason of the de
velopment of several cases of
smallpox. The freight and pas
senger trains of the Canadian
Southwestern have been running
through the city without stop
ping and just what the situation
is will not be known until Dr.
Blakeslee, the county physician,
returns from a trip on which he
started last night.
Dr. Blakeslee received a tele
gram yesterday from Dr. Backen
asking him to investigate the
smallpox at Beaudette, Dr.
Bracken's attention had been
called to the situation by the
Canadian health authorities at
Ottawa. Only one case was re
ported but the probabilities are
that there are several. Dr.
Blakeslee will establish a rigid
quarantine before returning.
Beaudette had quite a serious
epidemic of smallpox last winter
and several trips were necessi
tated on the part of the county
physician. At this season of the
year the trip must be made via
Winnipeg and the distance is
over 400 miles.
Old Enough to Know Better.
A gentleman from East Grand
Forks reported to the police de
partment that he had been
-robbed of $70 by Mrs. Noble
McCoy, a Crookston woman, who
has gained considerable noteriety
through several recent escapades'.
The pair had occupied adjoining, A
iue ro*ms and until th Eas GranA
Forks man lost the money he
was of the opinion that Mrs.
McCoy was a charming woman.
He would very much like to re
cover the money but objected to
swearing out a warrant on ac
count of the notoriety he would
receive. In the meantime Mrs.
McCoy has left town. The East
Grand Forks man is grey headed
and evidently old enough to know

Proceedings Being Started
Prevent Chippewa Pine
A suit in equity enjoining Sec
cretary of the Interior Ethan
Allen Hitchcock from further
proceedings in" selling the pine
lands on the Chippewa Indian
reservation is being prepared in
Washington. The complainant
in the suit is Gus Beaulieu, who
has employed a firm, of Washing
ton lawyers to commence an in
junction suit in the supreme
court in the District of Columbia
to prevent Mr. Hitchcock from
selling the pine. Mr. Beaulieu
proposes to test the legality of
the act of June 27, 1902, which
provides that the expense of cut
ting the timber shall come out of
the proceeds of the sale. Beau
lieu has been agitating the ques
tion for along time, and it is said
that he has support from certain
lumbermen who are anxious to
tie up the sale.

night, had a preliminary hearing

The Bemidji man who intends

The supply was quite inadequate
to meet the demand this morn

pointed in receiving consign
ments that they had ordered and
none were marketed locally. As
a consequence there has been a
run on chickens, ducks, geese
and wild fowl, that has left all

Evidence in Enevold Murder
Case Was Finished Yes
ATTORNEY HALL MAKES EL0-
QUENT PLEA FOR ACQUITTAL
General Opinion is That Chances
of Accused For Acquittal
are Very Good.
The taking of evidence in the
EnevOld murder case which has
been on trial at Walker, before
the Cass county district court,
was completed yesterday and the
case went to the jury late last
The trial has been attended by
large crowds daily and the ca
pacity of the court house was
taxed last night to hear the clos
ing pleas of the prosecution and
defense in the case. Attorney
Albert B. Hall, who defended
Enevold, made an eloquent plea
for acquittal and those who have
heard the celebrated Minneapolis
criminal attorney in several cases
in this section say that he has
never made a better argument
or more eloquent effort than he
addressed to the jury in closing
the case last night. Mr. Hall
dwelt muchupon the unfortunate
circumstances that led up to the
shooting, the crippled condition
of the defendant and taken all
in all made a talk that had a
visible effect on every member
of the jury. The accused man
was in court while the plea was
made and listened with the great
The state also made a strong
presentation of its case. The
general opinion at Walker is that
the case went to the jury with a
great deal of evidence regarding
the circumstances attending the
shooting that would warrant the
jury in returning a verdict of not
guilty. The plea of the defense
was self defense. The case went
to the jury late last night and it
was still out at last accounts.
Thanksgiving at the County Jail.
Following the usual custom
Sheriff Bailey wTill
prisoners at the county jail a
dinner tomorrow that will be all
that it should be in view of the
occasion and the environment.
The menu will include turkey,
cranberry sauce and all other
toothsome dainties that usually
find favor in the best of homes.
There are twenty prisoners at
the jail and they will all enjoy the
holiday by refraining from all
work except that which is abso
lutely necessary. No one who
has ever enjoyed Sheriff Bailey's
hospitality on occasions of this
kind ever had cause to complain
and he will give the prisoners a
dinner tomorrow that will com
pare favorably with any Thanks
giving dinner served in the city.
The Revs. Wilson and Connel
ly, evangelists, who have come to

time and hope to make their visit
