THE FINGER O SUSPICION It is Pointed at Blackduck Man in Sullivan Disap pearance Matter. PEOPLE OF VILLAGE FEEL THAT IT IS UP TO HIM TO EXPLAIN Newspaper Stories of Sullivan's Disappearance Have Stirred Up the Citizens of the Town. that the mother of Sullivan makes the statement that her son was murdered in Blackduck and that a well known hotel man of that city must give a more satis factory explanation of the affair than he has up to date. There is much talk at Black duck at present and develop ments in the matter are now ex pected that will settle the matter in some way conclusive. One feature of the affair which does not look well is that at the county attorney's office in this city is the report of a detective who woi'ked on the case for some time, wherein.it is shown conclu sively that conflicting stories have been told. It is also devel oped that some of these were ab solutely without foundation. County Attorney Loud is of the opinion that there are people at Blackduck who could throw a very great deal of light on the disappearance of Sullivan if the silence they have maintained up to date could be broken'. ^ss^iSsss^^^^s^^^s^BmiasmKmam^F^^k BAC FRO TRIP Hunting Caribou Like Hunting Shadows Says Taxidermist Henry Buenther.

The police say the job was done by the same parties who broke into the Bemidji Mercantile Co.'s- store, the Sims store and the store of O'Leary & Bowser, but are at a loss to know where to look for the thieves. The saloons, gambling houses and resorts were all gone over this morning and a number of suspicious characters were rounded up. All were subjected to the sweat box method of ob taining information, but the police so far have been unable to learn absolutely nothing. This afternoon there was a wholesale hunching of well known local tramps and tinhorns. Many of the men refused to leave fov the reason that there is no direct charge against them but Chief of Police Bailey says they must get out of town and will use every effort to accomplish his purpose in freeing the city from unde sirable characters.
