Crookston Excited Over Little Affair - Federal Authorities Will Act.
Crookston, Minn., Dec. 8-Paul Belcourt, with Indian blood flowing in his veins, is under arrest here and as a result of his arrest, the federal authorities dealing with the liquor situation have been asked to take action against a local saloon keeper.

Belcourt was taken in charge last night while about to leave the city, having in his possession a quantity of liquor.

Recently the local saloon owners made an agreement that no liquor was to be sold over the bar in bottles, and evidence that this agreement has been violated and that at least one saloon man has sold liquor directly to a man of Indian blood has been gained in the arrest of Belcourt.

Belcourt has a reputation through the northwestern part of Minnesota as a baseball player.
