"COYOTE BILL" SEEKS THE AID
OF FRIENDS TO SECURE RE
LEASE FROM PRISON.
A letter has been received in MIs
souls from K. F. W. Beeskove, who
is now serving a 10-year sentence in
the state penitentiary, asking frienle
to make an attempt to secure his re
lease or to have his sentence comrn,
muted. It will be remembered that
Bieeskove, who is better known as
"Coyote il11l." was sentenced for the
murder of W. F. Burrig, whom "Coy
ote Dill" is said to have deliberately
shot to death on account of a dispute
over a parcel of timber land whl, h
both men claimed. The land in ques
tion Is located at a point about i.t
miles up the Rattlesnake, and is now
supposed to be a part of the Burrig
ranch which adjoins at c(Ihimi held by
Itieskove. Burrig was killed while in
the act of cutting timber on the dis
puted strip, when fleeskove., without
preliminary warning, shot the man
down. Beeskove was tried ill the dis
trict court and sentenced to be
hanged, but on second trial the sen
tence was changed to 10 years in
On November 22, 1906, "Coyote Bill"
was taken to states prison and Itt in
tervals since then has made a nunm
Ibr of appeals to his former attorney,
H. H. Parsons, and to other friends,
for aid in an attempt to get a pardon.
Burrig, the man whom Icteskove
murdered, is said to have been a h!-'
working and peaceable fellow, and had
a wife and several children to support.
The last paragraph of Ilteskov.'s
letter is as follows:
"If I could get my time cut to five
years and then take off the time I was
in jail that would release me next
summer some time. I am sure that
those who know me in Missoula will
do what they can to secure my release
from prison. Any true brother might

brother. Will you do it--------
the letter Is signed, "Your fraternally.

ORE THAN TEN LOTS A DAY
SOLD SINCE DALY'S ADD TION
HAS BEEN ON MARKET.
According to the announcement of
the selling agents, the sale of lots in
Daly', addition ended last night. Lots
were sold on the last day of the sale
rather briskly, and when the officials
closed last night there had been a
material addition made to the re
ceilpts of the sale, which has been
the most remarkable real estate sale
ever held in Missoula-probably the
most successful ever held in Mon
Ten lots a day and a little better is
the average of the sales sheets. It
was exactly 75 days ago that the sale
was started. Deducting Sundays and
holidays, there are left 62 business
days in this period, and the total
number of lots actually sold In that
time is 622. In addition to this, there
are options out on more than 40 lots,
which, according to the agreement,
must be honored if they are taken
up this week. But the actual sales
were better than 10 lots a day.
"It has been a remarkably success
ful sale," said John M. Price last
night, speaking of the way things
have gone. "We have disposed of
the first allotment in faster time than
we expected. The lots are fine, our
prices were reasonable and our adver
tising campaign was vigorous. To
these three factors I attribute the
success of the sale, I want to say
that we have been delighted with tile
direct results that have come from
outr advertising. We have done no ad
vertising except in The Missoullan,
and consequently we have had no
trouble in checking up the results.
We have made many of our sales di
rectly from the advertising. Others
we have had to rustle for, but the
corllnb tio n of the tadlvertising atnd the
rustling hias been Just what you see
the best real estate salet that anybody
itn tills pa;rt of the counlltry ever saw."
Fr'id C. Stoddard Indorsed the senti
mInnts of Mr. Price. "I btelleve that
tlhe succ'ess of the sale has been due
to the fact that we advertised
strongly and that weI made gqpd all
of our advertisements. The lots were
the best in the market and they made
good aIll of oulr advertised statements.
WeVt have learttned to value highlly the
tdvertisting columnns of PThe Mltssoullan;
they havi' provted an indis:ensable
factotr In the estle's sutccess. The ad
vert Iising hats been lup to date and
alive and its results have been ap
parenl'llt frnt the outset. We have had
pride in tihe ftact that the lots were
teverything that we claitned for them.
Whei'n wet s.howedti them to customelrs
there was nlothilng that wits not ex
rtetly as, hlid been tnnlounce'let. These
f;ctorst have i o\' 'tInned, as Mr. Prtce
says, tto make the salet a ntotteworthy
Ievent in thell rea etstat(e business ' of
this part of thei state."
It. M. Cobban, who was asso'iated
with Stoddlardt & Price In the sale of
these II.ts, indorsed the opinions ex
pressed.l "It ihas been remarkably
utcct'tessful," he said last night, "and
It shows l \\hath good advertising will
Fo,r its wn paIrt, T'he Mlssoullan Is
lprouid o the success of the Daly's
;dlllititon sal. All of the atdvertlslng
thllat wais done in this sale was done
in the columlns of The Missoullan;
there' waits no other ne'wspaper adver
tising and there was no clrcular work
donite. The enertgy of the agents was
supplemented by the rapidly changed
and well arranlged advlertising, which
has been plleasantly tnllmmented uponl
in real estate ('h'rles all through the
west. The fact that the response to
this adlvertising has been so prompt
andt s saitlsfactoiry Is niturally pleaits
lng to The Missoullian. It was ex
pected when the advertising camnlpaign
was inaugurated that It would extend
iover it longer period, but the allotment
was exhausted, so that the close of
the sale calne last night. A good ad
vertising contract has been cut short,
but the results have beell so) satisfac
tory that the record constitutes a
testinionial to the excellence of The
Missoullhian's advertising value, which
is worth miiuch to this lnewspaper. And
this stattlement was mtadle llt Stoltldlrd

DAUGHTERS OF HERMANN
GIVE NEW YEAR DANCE
'Thet newly remodeled Elite hall was
crowded last night with a large and
merry lot of people, both young and
old, who were present to dance the old
year out and the new year in. The
occasion was the annual dance given
by Lena Lodge No. 7 of the Daughters

live long in the memories of those who
were fortunate enough to be present.
The large hall was just the right size
to take care of the crowd which was
in attendance, and the floor was in
perfect condition. Several hundred
dancers braved the cold night and
helped to make the occasion a mem

deserves a large amount of credit for
making the affair as successful as it
was. The committee consisted of the
following ladies: Mrs. Fox, chairman,
