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.

On Monday Representative Connolly of Yellowstone county. introduced a joint resolution in the house of repre- sentatives petitioning congress for the immediate opening of the balance of the Crow Indian reservation. The- sen- timent of the state is mtronirly in favor ,)f the onenine of this and other reser- vations. and it is also the policy of the interior department to place these lands on the market for white settlers. Allot- ments have been made on the Crow reservation to all Indians excent thane horn since .Taneary 1st 1008. It ie esti- mated that te neighborhood of 100 e Indian ehilaren have been born since that date. After these allotments are made there will still remain thousands of acres of rich agricultural and graz- ing lands in , the country. which after the opening, will besinbiect to entry by whites under the homestead and desert law—according to the provisions of the Dixon bill now before cent - tress.

Representative Connelly's resolution I in hall is as follows: ESTIMATES FURNISHED \We believe it to he to the eyierlast- ing benefit and advantage of the state of Montana and its peo o ple and to the th best interests of e nation at large that the Crow reservation should he speedily opened for settlement and all Indian rights adjusted; now there- fore, be it \Resolved the I Hardin or Foster 0-onses.44mne-simes.-oimpoo--oimes.

There is no reason why their expectations should not be realized. We have every advantage and requirement. Location soil, water, public spirited men and women; concerted action will do the rota. As spring,drawe near, we should prepare to make our town and valley attractive. Commence by cleaning, up the back yards, the alleys and the streets. nillow this up by a liberal planting o f trees and shrubbery and the !vowing of grass seeds on the lawns. Make the place attractive to the visitor and the passing tourist. First im- priesions are usually lasting, and you will tinil that the beauty of the place will make it none the less desirable on your own individual awount. Try it, it's the way to do things. Prepare now for the spring cis., sing and plant- ing. • Important Land Decision. The I, •flowing taken from the .Bad River News, a South Dakota news :t; relating to a recent decision frian the board of law review of the general land office at Washington. D. C., will he of intense to all readers: • •The board of law review, the high- est jndicial body of the general land office at Washington. handed down a decision last week that is hklv to stir things up a bit unites congresp, rushes to the reticule and legislation that will curtail the effect of the de cision. The opinion lands on proof pretty hard. It ceininutation simply iok flounces for the first time, in not Contracts For Two Good doubtful terms, that a party who tat., Business Houses. • homestead land with the intention ot residing thereon fourteen months • making the\ necessary improvements, and cultivating the land as required by law, will have his entry held for can- cellation. Strict compliance with the commutation law is not enough. The surrounding circumstances must be such as to indicate that the party, when he filed on the land, intended to make final five year proof and hold the land permanently as his actual dence. \In the (11813 decided the party had been on his land with the exception of two nights continuously for fourteen months, he had made substantial im- provements, and had nearly twenty acres under cultivation, yet ails of the party before filing and after proving up indicated that he took the land sole- ly for the purpose of securing title, and never intended to reside on the land after patent was issued. The entry was cancelled entirely on the ground that the facts indicated that the *Wiry - man had intended to ts)mtnate and leave the land from the first. \It is announced that under the de- cision all commutation pCoofs, where , patent has ,not been issued, will be held for investigation. If investigated, a lot of people who have 'hauled their trunks . to the train on the dete of pr4 and have pulled off other stunts of that nature will have something to think about that may eiorry them.\ OPERATIONS • • Real Estate Prices Advancing. A few days ago ' a. man who was asked why he did not purchase real estate, guve as' hie reason that prices were too high. mays the Billings Gazette. Prices ARE advancing steadily. Real estate may be purchased for leas money now, than will . he the case six months from date. The same man will doubtless say then, \Prices are high -now if I could have purchased six months ago\—and so it goes. That man has developed his hind sight abnormally. It is really hurting him. If he could forget the past for a mo- ment—just long enough to look ahead, he would be astonished. The man who has puechased real estate has made money, for property is advancing, not only in Billings, but all over the United States, and it is easy of realization, should that .step become necessary. It is because of the fact that it is increasing in value so rapidly, that it is such a favorite form of investment. Church and Sabbath School. Hardin 10 a. m. Foster 2 p. Sermon by Rev. H. G. Gibson. Our special music is proving very popular, and we hope you can arrange to hear it too. Subject. The creation of man and his present home. Text. \In the beginning God cre- ated the heaven and the earth. And God said: 'Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over 'the ffsh of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon e the earth.\ Gen. 1: 1, 28. How insignificant the heaven and the earth, with their rivers and mountains. and seasons and stars and sky appear when compared to God, \They shall perish, but thou shalt endure; yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed. But thou art the tome, and thy years shall have no end.\ Psalms 102:20, 57. A strong effort is being made by the people of Billings to secure the next annual meeting of the Dry Fanning (-engrave The . 1000 meeting will be held at Cheyenne. Wyo., next month and a monster delegation will attend from Billings and the entire state of Montana. Every man in the bunch will be a booster for Billings and we all wish them success in the matter of securing for Montana the next session of the eengreem. Billings can care for the delegates admirably, it is a live one of which no resident of the state need entertain d•tubte of ability and willing- nette to care for the visitors. And mi it is in the heart of a vast territory only now commencing to develop its dry farming retiourcee • The meeting of the next congress in Billings would , be of untold benefit to the state of Mor- ton& and would call attention directly to one of the most promising dry fartu i regions in the northwest. + 111 •14.1.41+1 1- \inies..s0\\41\414 , 11 - \\-611 - \Illne.soSto\\ s tIolO G.

Spencer Will Build Two Story , Brick and Mrs. Reeder a Two Story Frame Qn Central Ave. With the coming of spring arrange- uients are being perfected for the con- struction of many new burliness houses and residences in Hardin. Among thew that will he commenced in the very near future, contracts for which will be awarded this week, are the structures of E. C. Spencer and the Reeder Drug Co. Mr. Spencer has the plans prepared for a brick building 30x60 feet, two stories, with a basement under the em - tire building with an S -foot ceilin . The new structure will be erected on the site of Mr. Spencer's present building. The old building will be moved back tied turned to face 1st street adjoining thtemeat market. The lower floor will '08 occupied by Mr. Spencer with the leei office and a complete stock of gen- eral mereliandise. The second floor will be fitted up for hull purposes and it is understood that as soon as com- pleted a number of fraternal organiz- ations will organize mind use the hall for a meeting place. Probably among the first to do so will be the 'Masons, of which order a goodly number of old members are residents of Hardin and the valley. Mr. Spencer's building will be built modern throughout and from its promi- nent location at the foot of Central Ave- nue, directly opposite the depot, will be a credit to the town of Hardin. Mrs. H. I. Reeder, of the Reeder Drtie company, who came to Hardin last fall from Illinois, has pan:hated the lot on the northeast corner of Cen- tral Avenue and 2nd street from the Chapple Drug company of Billings and will start work on a , two-story frame, 25x40, soffie time the coming week, the weather permitting. The building will be one of the handsomest in Hardin, having frontage on two of the best streets in the city. It will have a solid plate glass front on Central Avenue, which will also extend for some dis- tance back on the 2nd street side, with the entrance on the corner. -Upon com- pletion of the building the Reeder Drug company will add materially to its stock, put in a soda fountain, ice cream fixtures, etc. Mrs. Reeder is a woman of unusual business ability, enterpris- ing and a hustler for business. The new building will be a decided im- provement to Hardin. Messrs. Rousseau and Cleland are just-completing their four room brick cottages, while a number of other resi- dences will be started in the near fu- ture. Harness Shop Opens, Mr. C. B. Schneider and wife, of Bil- lings, came down the first of the week and have since been busily occupied with the work incident to opening a new business in a new town. Mr. Snyder has rented the south room of the Hardin Hotel building, which he has divided into -two rooms, one of which will be used by himself as a har- ness shop and the other by Mrs. Snyder with a stock of confectionery and no- tions. Mr. Snyder is an experienced harness maker and saddler, having been' employed in that line for the past num- ber of years. A harries shop is one of the many things badly needed in Har- din and we are .(xmlident Mr. Snyder will fill the bill acceptably to the people and soon build up a splendid trade and business for himself. He hopes to be ready for business the first of next week. N. N. ALLEN ra CO., Lath Shingles Sash Doors B'Idg Paper Wholesale and Retail Dealers in LUMBER C. C.
