The Bemidji Pioneer. EDWARD KAISER., Publisher Entered in the postomce at Bemidji as Beccrad-clasB matter. PUBLISHED EVEKY THURSDAY. Official County and City Paper. TO INCORPORATE. At the meeting of the village council held last Monday night the matter of incorporating as a city was discussed by those pres ent and all seemed in favor of the proposition. It is believed that steps will be taken toward find ing out the sentiment of the peo ple here in regard to the matter. There is no doubt but what it would be a fine thing and would not add materially to the expense of running the village. Bemidji has become too large for a village and should be incor porated as a city at once. As a city we would possess many ad vantages that we do not now en joy and with very little addition al cost. A special charter could 7 be secured such as other tows in the state have, and would be a boost for the town with those out side. ________________ The electrocution bill by Gapt. Ray T.

The Bemidji Pioneer. EDWARD KAISER., Publisher Entered tn the postolhce at Bemidji ae BecoDd-olasB matter. PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. Official County and City Paper. THE MERGER DECISION. A complete fiasco, so far as practical results go. Mr. Hill six months ago asked the pert inent question if it was expected by decree of court to take his property and that of his friends away from them? If not, what good purpose could the litigation serve? For it is Mr. Hill and his friends who make up the main body of stockholders in the Northern Securities company, in the Northern Pacific company, and in the Great Northern com pany. The decree of the court of ap peals makes no attempt to de prive Hill of his stock. Indeed, it directs that the stock in the two latter companies be returned to him and his associates by the Northern Secureties. So that they will own and control the two railroads, and be just as capable of restraining trade and monopolizing commerce, as if the decree had never been ren...

QUICK ACTION ON THE PART OF AN AMERICAN OFFICER IN CHINA. fORElGNERS I N GREAT DANGER NARROWLY ESCAPED A PLOT CONTEMPLATING GENERAL MASSACRE. DRAKE CONCOCTS A DEFENSE OTHER FOREIGN COMMANDERS PROMPTLY COOPERATE WITH HIM. Washington, April 14.Quick action and common sense treatment of a crit ical situation by an American naval officer in China recently saved the for eign residents in the province of Kwon Tung, along the east bank of the Canton river, from falling victims to a plot which, while directed pri marily against the Manchurian dynas ty, inevitably would have culminated in an attack on the foreign population. This attack was averted by the pre cautionary measures taken by Com mander F. J. Drake, commanding the United States steamer Monterey, with the assistance of the English gunboats Sand Piper and Britomac, the French gunboat Avalanche and the German tug Shameen. The coali tion that seems to have fomented the trouble extends to several provinces, and official advices receiv...
