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.

The sale of \Inherited Indian Lands\ held on Wednesday of this week dem- onstrated that the value of lands in the Big Horn and tributary valleys has in- et/eased rapidly. A couple of years ago these lands when offered for sale went at from $4 to $10 per acre. A year ago the price advanced from r to $22.50. At the sale Wednesday offers ranging from $20 to $41 were numerous and few if any pieces will be sold at less than $10 per acre. The bidding was not confined to any particular portion of the reservation, eithough the lands on which the high- rit4t bkle were made are located in the vicinity of Hardin. While this is the case. 'still high prices were offered for lands- in the Little Horn valley, on L(xlge Grass, Pryor and other smaller streams, and under the government ditch near St. Xavier. Even range lands in the Pass creek country went at $10 per acre and better. Following are a few of the bide on different pieces of land in the vicinity of Ilardin: Forty acres one-half mile north of Hardin, owned by the heirs of Stays With Her Medicine Rock: • .1. H.

Carl Rankin was the highest bidder on 40 acres at Dunmore, on the Little Horn, which includes water right and under irrigation, at $1060. F. M. Heinrich was the highest bidder on I several pieces an the Nfienion lotions, paying for one tract of 344 Licree. part under irrigation, $5,208.50, and for a number of pieces of grazing lands near the Wyoming line $10 and up per acre. E.- L. Delia paid about the same for several pieces, as did also others who bought in that vicinity. As a whole Agent Reynolds considers the sale the greatest success and is of the opinion that the handsome prices offered will induce many of the Indians who have heretofore refused to sell to put up their inherited lands at the coming males. The next sale will be pulled off about the 20th of April and present indications are that the list will be a large one and will include some of the very choicest lands on the reser- vation. A list of the successful bidders will appear as soon as Agent Reynolds and the office force can go over the paper and prepare it. After Registership. The scramble for the position of regis- ter of the U. S. land office at Billings promises to become interesting. C. L. Harris, the Billings attorney, who is after the place, stirred tffe opposition on a recent trip to Forsyth: Mr. D. J. Muri, a resident of Forsyth and the present clerk of court for Rosebud county, is an avowed candidate for the position and has been an avowed candi- date ever since Mr. Esselstyn resigned. In fact he was a strong competitor for the place when Mr. Esselstyn received the appointment. Of the contest and of Mr. Harris' candidacy the Forsyth Journal says: \It is not a little surprising that Bill- ings should now seek to procure the ap- pointment of one of her own citizens to the regietership made vacant by the resignation of Mr. Freteletyn, there be- ing an established precedent to the effect that this position should go to either Carbon or Rosebud counties, these two, with Yellowstone, constitut- ing the Billings land district. With the appointment of Mr. Esselstyn Car- bon county was given due and coin- mensurate recognition, and every prin- (iplepf justice, fairness and equity now demands a consideration of the claims of Rosebud.. ,e,ounty. Billings already has the land office and the receiver thereof, and for her now to insist upon taking the register from the ranks of her inhabitants would be an. exhibition of extreme selfishness and unfairnesii. \Two years ago when the ceded strip was thrown open to settlement Billings was made the principal registration point, profltting immensely from this to the practical exclusion of all other surrounding ,towns. Rosebud county contributed much to her neighbor's prosperity at that time, also before and since, and now that we are only asking for a recognition which, it l's conceded, is justly due as, we hope the people of Billings will play the game fair. • We have always given _them a. square deal, now let them reciprocate.\ • Campaign Funds. Both the republican and democratic national committees have made their re- ports of the amount of funds received and disbursed in the late campaign. The democratic report shows a total amount received of a little less than, $700,000, with a balance on hand of something more than $1,200. The report of the treasurer of the re- publican national committee shows the receipt of $1,665,518. The amount on hand at the close of the campaign is not stated. C. P. Taft, brother of the presi- dent-elect, is the largest contributor, his donation being $110,000. Andrew Carnegie and J. P. Morgan are credited with $20,000 each.,. while 12.880 other contributors gave in amounts Of from $500 to $ 87,7Z7. In all a neat little \ SUM. Sunday School and Church. Sermon by Rev. H. G. Gibson.

Fourteen men charged • with murder in Valley county, in the northeastern part of the state on Wednesday pleaded guilty to manslaughter and were sen- tenced to various terms in prison, ac- cording to a dispatch last week from Glasgow. Previously two men had been found guilty of the same crime by a jury and sent to the penitentiary for 82 and 18 years respectively. The crime to which these fourteen men plead guilty was the raid upon the cabin of John klayes and his fami- ly, which resulted in the death of Hayes and his daughter. Hayes had jumped a claim which Wal- ter Long had taken up and the settlers round about decided to rid the country of claim jumpers. They joined Long in warning Hayes to leave the country and when he did not go, they went to the cabin at midnight and shot it up and attempted to set fire to it. Hayes and his family returned the tire and several hundred shots ale said to have been fired. Hayes and his daugter were the only persons killed, although several others were slightly wounded. In all 16 persons were arrested for the crime. The first trial was that of Walter . Long. It was long and elpensiie and resulted in his conviction and sentence to 85 years imprisonment. Then fol- lowed the trial of his brother, Mile, who was given 18 years imprisonment. Two of the men in the gang turned state's evidence and they got off with a jail sentence. The court had already commenced the third trial, that of Charles B. ---.Gamble, and was having considerable difficulty in getting a jury. Two days had been spent without filling the box. Meanwhile the attorneys on both sides had been holding frequent con- ferences, with the result that it was arranged that all the defendants should plead guilty to manslaughter with the hope that sentence would be light. Clainble and George R. Isbell received a sentence of one year and nine months each. The others received sentences ranging from six months in the county jail to one year in the penitentiary. Coming to Montana. \There will be more people mime to Montana to make their homes in the next five years than have come heie during the past 15 years,\ declared Louis P. Benedict, chief 'Clerk in the state department ' of labor and apicul- ture. \People are flocking to Montana as never before,\ he continued. \In every section of the state the increase in popu- lation is enormous and is steadily grow- ing. In the vicinity of Culbertson, where I have been spending some time, they are unlou1i4 lutmtgrants and - their possessions at the rate of from one to five cars a (lay. These immi- grants are all of a thrifty and hardy class of people, and will make excellent citizens. The eastern and northern sections of the state especially are en- joying a wonderful influx of new set- tlers.\ . Are the people of Hardin and the Big Horn valley doing any thing toward in- ducing a share of these hoineseekere to locate here? If not. why? We have everything to offer and all that is nec- aviary is to induce them to come and look. One here, they will not care to look elsewhere. Isn't it about time some- thing was being done to call the mitten don of the vast army of homeseekers Hardin ward? Red Lodge Disaster. Fire broke out in the coal mines of the Northwestern Improvement com- pany at Red Lodge last Friday morn- ing. imprisoning 150 miners in the workings. With'the exception of nine all were rescued from the burning mine alive. Three were brought out dead and it is believed six others have per- ished and it is doubtful if their bodies will even be recovered. The bodies of Samuel Oaskers, Andrew Jokala and John Maston have been recovered. The six others who are dead and unrecov ered are: Frank Yonkeeki, Tony Stir - rich, Andrew Kernanen, Jerob Sink°. Victor Neimi and Battisu) Basso. Frank Yonkterki, one of the dead. re cattily . made final proof on a homestead tieelir Foster and went to Red Lodge shortly after to work in the mines.
