Helena Press: In the Stillwater re
gion, a section inhabited less than ten
years ago by Indians, the settlers are
being supplied with a telephone sys
tem which reaches to many parts of
the Pacific northwest. There are now
1,000 people living in the valley and
its tributaries who have located there
since the Indians ceded that part of
the county to the government. They
have well improved ranches, most of
them are free from debt and have sur
rounded themselves with small bunch
es of live stock in addition to the com
forts which come to those who by
dint of hard work succeed in carving
out homes in newly opened territory.

there was no doubt about the inaugu
