A PROPOSITION
Base Ball Association to Con
sider Proposition From North
ern League.
A meeting of the base ball as
sociation will be hold Friday
night vtt which a proposition will
be submitted that will be of in
terest to all the local fans. The
possibility of Bemidji having a
team in the Northern league is re
mote at present as it would be
too expensive to be considered at
present. The Northern league
officials will meet in Grand Forks
some time next week and it is
proposed to try and make ar
rangements with them to have a
series of games in this city dur
ing the season, which will figure
in the averages of the league and
thus insure an article of base
ball that will be all that it should
be. Bemidji cannot be altogether
without base ball and it is be
lieved that if arrangements can
be made for a series of games' in
the city between the league
teams of other towns it will an
swer the purpose quite as well
and at a much smaller expense
than if the city had a team of its
own.

of families to the city. They will
be removed from Crookston Jan

STOR SWEPT
North Dakota and Northwest
Visited By First Hard Blizzard
of Season Yesterday.
North Dakota, northwestern
Minnesota and northwestern
Canada wore visited by the' first
severe stonn of the winter yes
terday. The storm was partic
ularly severe west of Larimore
along the line of'the Great North
ern and has caused much incon
venience to traffic generally. All
Great Northern trains from the
west were late today and it will
be some time before the line is
cleared and they can run on time
again. Montana stock men suf
fered heavy losses of cattle. The
present winter will be one of the
hardest on the ranges for many
years. They are already covered
with several inches of snow and
it is difficult to procure feed tor
stock that is being wintered in
the open country.

SOCIAL EVENTS
Sauk Rapids Free Press:
The tin shower given by Mrs.
G. A. Chilgren last Saturday for
Miss Cordelila Street was one of
the prettiest social function ever
given in Sauk Rapids. At an affair
of this kind where hearts were
trumps what more appropriate
than to play the progessive game
of hearts. After an hour of fun
at this game a delicious lunch
was served. At the conclusion
of the lunch Miss Street was ask
ed to pass around the ring cake.
There was much wishing among
the young ladies present to get
the piece containing the ring as
that foretold her marriage with
in the year. The goo luck fell to
Miss Iliff. There was also a spini
ster portion, a thimble, which fell
to the lot of Miss Fannie Savage.
After the cake was eaten the
room was made ready for the
shower. Miss Street was re
quested to sit in a large chair
while the young ladies marched
in file each bearing her gift of
tin, and humming The Lohengrin
Wedding March while Miss
Street was completely covered
with tin. Mrs. Chilgrin made a
happy heart wishing Miss Street
a life long "Holliday" and each
lady drank her health miniature
a stine of cider. All went home
wishing the "next" would soon
announce her wedding. Miss
Kittie Quinn got the head prize
and Miss Iliff the foot prize in
the card game.
NOT WARRANTED BY MERIT.
General Wilson's Opinion of General
Wood's Promotion.
Washington, Dec. 9.General Jambs
H. Wilson. IT. S. A., retired, was on
the stand for more than an hour in the
Wood investigation before the senato
committee on military affairs. He
told the committee of his meeting
with -Captain E. G, Balla-teo. at Ha
vana, saying that he became convinced
that liellaire came to Havana with
the purpose of wilfully falsifying con
ditions in the island that Bellaire
called on him at his headquarters in
the province of JVIatanzas and that he
(General Wilson) then accused Bel
laire of writing dispatches which gave
a wrong color to affairs in the island
and injured the work of,..General
Brooke and others.
The witness said that Bellaire
sighed and admitted that he was
standing by his friends, declaring that
his position was a necessary one.
General Wilson said the remark
could have but one meaning and that
was that he was backing General
Wood, that this was evident from the
nature of Bellaire's dispatches. The
witness asserted it to be his belief
that Bellaire went to Havana for th
purpose of promoting the advance
ment of General Wood.
When asked concerning the rapid
strides made by General Wood in
jumping over himself, General Lud
low and General Lee, the witness
showed a feeling of bitterness against
General Wood. The effect of the re
sponse was that he considered the
promotion was one brought about by
preferment, rather than warranted by
merit.
LONG SUIT ENDED.
