midji to determine what young
lady and three of her friends will
go to Duluth next Saturday to
see Ben Hur at the Lyceum thea
tre at the expense of the Pioneer
is at a white-heat. The friends of
all three candidates now in the
running are each determined
that their candidate shall be the
fortunate winner of the contest
and the finish will furnish plenty
excitement for all concerned.
The contest at Tenstrike, Tur
tle River and Blackduck is if
anything hotter than that at
Bemidji. Miss Cyr at Tenstrike
is making a most gallant fight
and is nothing daunted by the
rumors of a dark horse at that
point. Miss Johnson at Turtle
River keeps right on showing
unexpected strength" and she
will undoubtedly have to be
reckoned with at the finish. The
great fight up the north line how
ever is at Blackduck where there
are no less than five candidates
and each is determined to win.

Strike of Chicago Livery Stable Driv
Chicago, Dec. 22.No sign of peace
had entered into the livery drivers'
strike when the fourth day of the
trouble began. Ambulances have come
under the ban of the striking pickets,
according to reports received from
undertakers and liverymen, who de

man the conveyances of the sick as
well as those of the dead.

were posted throughout the city dur

union for the purpose, say the union
officials, of preventing interference on
the part of union sympathizers with
the movement of hearses should the
undertakers attempt to substitute
them for the black "dead wagons."
The undertakers and liverymen are
accused by the union officials of seek
ing to divert public sympathy from the
Twelve independent undertakers
are reported by the union as having
signed the wage and hour agreement.

be a great city, and townsite lots,
now to be had cheap, will be worth
big money. Bu now.
