BEMIDJI, Minn., March 1.-The grand jury has returned indictments against David Dixon on a charge of forgery and Ben Overby for grand larceny. Dixon is said to have passed forged checks on John Bye and A. N. Warner of Puposky. The check on Bye went through the bank and when one came in from Warner, the handwriting was recognized and the man traced. He was arrested early in December in Puposky.

The first case to come before the court at this term, Christ Bolstad vs. the Red Lake railroad, resulted in a verdict for the plaintiff and an award of $1,000 damages.
