no doubt that the reservation will be covered

While several hundred thousand acre, of

upon tbe market, the great rush will be for
tbe land, west of tbe nver. as the Sioux bill
gives tbe original settler on the Crow Creek
lands in a pnontr of ninety days to get
back upon tbe Lands New settlers would
therefore take considerable chance in settling
upon these land, as after some time the orig
inal settlers murbt appear, and it would then
be too late for the new home maker to get
choice claims near tbe river. Then they
