What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

It is probable that the government in a}' soon take actioh toward deport ing the Cree Indians from Montana to their home across the Canadian border. A rumor to that effect has been in circulation for the past few days and, according to the story told, the troops at Fort Assinnifcoine will be used to do the rounding up of the vagrant scavengers. It has been eight yoars since the Crees were taken over the lino before, but as the boundary line is not patrolled they were only a few months drifting back into Montana and have iemained ever since. The Crees are the only Indians in the state who ars not the wards of the general government and just why they should be allowed to live upon the state has always been a question It is estimated that there are in the neighborhood of 1,200 Crees in Montana, the majority of them being in this end of the state, and, as they will not work, they must of necessity secure a precarious living in some way not lawful. The greator portion of the Crees are in tho vicinity of Havre, and Little Bear, tho chief makes his home in that vicinity. A .largo camp lios across the river from Groat Falls, another camp makes a home upon the garbage dump at Butte. Another occupies the same position on the outskirts of Anaconda, and tho re mainder aro scattered through the state in the yiciaity of various gar bage barrels. The Indians are natives of Canada and to that government belongs the duty of taking care of them. Tho majority of the Indians have 1G0 acres coming to them over the line, but since the death of Louis Riel and the putting down of the Riel rebel lion 20 years ago, thejDrees have re fused to live in Canadian territory. Rather than bo cared for by the government of their native soil, they take starvation chances among the people of Uncle Sam. The presont removal rumor seems to be founded upon a few facts which are quoted, and it is probable that the Cree people will be gathered up again during the coming summer and taken over to the domains of H. R. H. Edward oneo more—and the rumor says that the lino will be patrolled this time and Little Bear and his people be compelled to re main at homo. Considering1 Demands. Tho browers of the state are hold ing a meeting in Butte for the purpose of taking some action to moot the de mand of the brewery workers for bet ter wages. S. R. Jonson, secretary- treasurer of the Montana brewery and vice president o f the state asso ciation, is in attendance). The domand of the workers is that those who bottle beer for eight hours a day roceivo $3.50 instead of $3 as heretofore. All other employes Bsk $-1 a day, instosd of 3.50, and 72 cents an hour for overtime. ^ T e s t Cases In Federal Court. Helena, May 3.—CprlRasch, Unitod States district attorney, has commenc ed three test cases in the federal court which will determine whether a stock man has the right to construct fences on his own land in such a way as to inclose public lands. The question is one that has long been an important one to stockmen and settlers, and has □ever been raised iu precisely this way in the United States court. It is claimed that three men, Cadot T. Thomas, Herman J. Witt and Ed ward Cardwell, all of Yellowstone county, have secured possession of a few railroad sections and by' fencing the lands have control of practically all of theTange north of the Yellow stone river in that country. The district attorney alleges that Mr. Thomas has inclosed thirty-tv o whole sections o f public lauds, with out reference to fractional sections and to railroad and atate lauds, which in the aggregate amounts to a still larger- tract, but with which the government baa no interest. Each of the other defendant«,' it is claimed, have fenced in sixteen whole sections, besides many fractional sections. It is not claimed that the 6tockmon have buili their fences on public lands, but that they have inclosed public lands by building fences on lands they have a right to occupy in such a way as to incloso tho public domain, Tho defendants allege that as they have not built fences on tho public domain, they are not guilty of a vio latiou of the statute. The defendants have been givon until June 2 in which to ontor thoir appearauces. The suits were com- meucod several days ago, as was uoted at the time in the Miner. Chance For Irrigation. Washington, May 4.—Senators and representatives are receiving a num ber of petitions and memorials, from commercial bodios iu all parts of tho United States urging them to support the general irrigation bill now pond ing on tho house calendar. These petitions assorts that in as much as tho bill has passed the sonute, and has been amended to conform to the ideas and wishes of the president, and the houso committee on irrigation, it should be giveu a hoaring in tho house, The petitioners take a broad view of tho subject and maintain that in consideration of tho vast amount of benefit to be derived from the passago of the general law, it should bo adopt ed without delay, as a national meas ure. It is bolioved that tho fact that com mercial bodies, such as chambers of commerce and boards of trade of the leading cities, East as woll as West are supporting this bill that a frosh internet will be taken in the subjoct, which may lead to its consideration by the houso a reasonable timo beforo the adjournment of the present ses sion of congress. The Mining Congress. Butte, May 5.—Secretary Mahon of the International Mining congross this afternoau issued his call for tho fifth annual assembly, which will con vene in Butto on September 1st, and continne for five days. Tho call ex tends an invitation to all tho gov ernors of states and territories, mayors of cities and to wns, county commis sioners, chambers of commerce, boards of trade aud all commercial, indus trial and mining organizations iu tho United Statos, Canada and Alaska.

Shortage Of Beef. London, May 5.—In reply to a question in house of commons today, suggesting the desirability of aug meeting the supply in view of presont and prospectiveshortsupplio8 of beef, the president of the board of agri culture, R. W. Hanbury, said the government could not remove the restrictions placed on importations of Canadian store cattle, but possibly Argentine beasts might be admitted on the same conditions as cattle from the United States. Mr. Hanbury added that he was awaiting infor mation on the subject from the Argen tina government. Considering Term s of Peace. Pretoria, May 3.—Boer meetings continue to be held, chiefly in the Transvaal, to receive the leaders’ ex planations o f the British terms. It is understood that the heated discus sions which have occurred have usually shown a majority to be in favor of peace. It is aaid that about 200 , delegatea will attend the conference to be held » '• ir ' ■ • ' at Veroniging, Transvaal colony, May 15, and that all sections of the burgh ers will be thoroughly represented there. It is expected that a vote by ballot will be takefi at ibis confer ence. It is reported that General DoWet has frankly declared the terms to be reasonable and that it is advisable to accept them, whilo Gen. Delarey is said to be ready to abide by tho decision of tho majority. The outlook for peace therefore is very promising: packing company, with a capital: stock of $5,000,000. It is propoaailf\' by tho organizers to erect á m o d e r a p i ^ I packing plant in Chicago, laigef^figp enough to supply all the beef pro-,.^ 4 ^ ^ duets handled in their trade. - - : \ > t n i | A considerable amount of the cap-'?

Great consternation prevails here, and business is suspended. Protest Against Land Leasing. Washington, May 2.—Senator Gib son of Montana, today presented in tho sonato a letter from Commissioner Hormann of the gonoral land oifico in opposition to tho policy of leasing public lands us propoaod by the bill now ponding in tho sonato. Hermann says that undor the torms of tho bill practically all the public lands west of tho Mississippi would be subjoct to leasing and that it provided that when undor lease thoy shall not he disposed of except under homestead and minoral land laws, the sale of tho public domain would be greatly curtailed. Ho also attacks the provision of the bill fixing the rental of leased lands at two cents per aero. Ho declared that the g onoral effect of tho bill would be to place tho control of tho public lauds in the hands of the ex tensive stoekgrowers with tho' corres ponding result of making the small owners pay tributo to their more prosperous follows or elso go out of business. Of Interest to Livestock Shippers. Chicugo, May 4.—Judgment for $100 hue boon awardod against tho Atchiuson, Topeka & Santa Fo road in tho United Statos circuit court here on proof by the government that tho road had carried cattle for 108 hours without food or water. Tho law requires that no railroad company shall carry cattlo longor than 28 hours without rest, food and water, and that if tho journey is longer than 28 hours, tho cattlo shall bo carod for overy fivo hours there after. A similar case is ponding against the Indiana, Illinois & Iowa railway. Sampson Passes Away. Washington, May G.-Roar Admiral Wm. T. Sampson, retired, died at his home in this city at 5 o’clock this after noon. The immediate cause of death was a severe cerebral hemorrhage. He had been in a semi-concious state for sovoral days and this forenoon sufforod a severe cerebral hemorrhage. At tho bedsido when the admiral breathed his last were Mrs. Sampson, Mrs. Lieutenant Cluveri, tho admiral’s married daughter, Admiral Sampson’s two young sons, Ralph and Harold Sampson, Dr. Dixon, tho attending physician, and nurses and attendants. Mrs. Sampson had broken down under the strain and was very ill all during the day. But for tho critical condition of the admiral she would have been confined to her bed. While no definite arrangements have as yet been made coucerning the funeral ceremonies, it is probable they will take place Thuraday at the Church of the Coveaant in tbia city The remains will be taken to the Ad miral’s old home at Palmyra, N. Y., for interment. Fighting the Beef Trust. Hundreds of retail meat dealers throughout the country have begun the organization of an' independent' be accepted from any one firm or in dividual is $5,000. This is to prevent- the absorption of the company by- the packers who now control the beef business. Men started in the beef trade al ready have been engaged to manage tho new concern. Work for the pro motion of tho new company began two weeks ago. The promoters ex pect to interest between 15,000 and 20,000 retailors in the project. Out Of M erger Case. Montana has withdrawn from the contest for the Northweatesn states against the proposed railroad merger, a soheme backed by the Securities company. Governor Toole was in Chicago at the Auditorium hotel, and said: ''Montana will takenoactive part in the fight from now on. We are now practically out of it. The state will abide by the decision given in the Washington case.” “Do you mean that you do not think tho merger will be injurious in its ef fects upon the people o f the state and of tho Northwest?” was asked. \I hadn’t thought o f the thing from that viewpoint. My idea was that the consolidation of the big roads was antagonistic to the spirit and the let ter of the law governing trusts, and for that reason alone joined forces with' Governor Van Sant of Minne sota, when he took up the cudgel against it.” “Do you care to express yourself on the probable outcome of that eop- per war in your state?\ “No, because no man knows what its outcome will be. All I can do is to quote Sherman’s remarks on all war in regard to this particular one. 'It’s hell, and many innocent folks will suffer by it before it is over.’ ” M. E. Milner Resigns. Fort Benton, Mont., May 3.—The Shonkin Stock association met last evening at the office of Secretary T. A. Cummings, Outof the twenty one member, eighteen were present and in some respects it was a moat im portant meeting of the association. M. E. Milner, who took the chair manship of tho committee when every thing wns in confusion several years ago, and who, by his ability and energy has brought it to its present state of efficiency, announced that it would be impossible for him to accept the position again. The association represents more than a million dollars’ worth o f cattle and has been one of the best conduct ed organizations of the kind in the state. In losing Mr. Milner as the guiding hosd, the association suffers an almost irreparable loss. The other members o f the executive aommittee, Messrs. Leply and Malcom Morrow, also retired from the com mittee. They, too, have served years, and are thorough business and stock- men. The new committee is composed o f Dr. J. Y. Carrol, chairman and Messrs Overfiold and Martin Connolley. Major Cummings will serve as sec retary anothei year.
