Sioux City Journal : Twenty-three
linemen employed by the Northwest
ern Bell Telephone company crossed
the Sioux river at North Riverside yesterday -
terday morning and are now at the
hotels of that suburb. They are en
gaged in stringing eight additional cop
per wires for the Bell line to South
Dakota and Minnesota , which will
mean an improvement in the toll ser
vice out of Sioux City of considerable
importance. The eight wires will fur
nish four additional circuits , which
will he connected up in such a way
as to increase the total number from
South Dakota and Minnesota points
from six to twelve. The work was to
have been completed several weeks
ago , but has been delayed by a line
men's strike In Minneapolis , which Is
the head ofllce of the Northwestern
company. The rivalry between the
New State Independent company and
the Bell people Is resulting in rapid
strides In the toll service out of Sioux
City In every direction. The New-
State company has Just completed a
copper circuit from Sioux City to On-
awa , which will serve all intermediate
towns. The same company is also
bringing In three now circuits from
Nebraska , and the work of connecting
them up with the copper line recently
put across the combination bridge will
soon bo under way.
NOTE FROM CLYDE WILLIAMS.
Young Man Wrote , "I'm Leaving In a
Hurry , " Just Before Death.
"I am leaving In a hurry. That Is
a Joke. Clyde Williams. "
This was the strangely coincidental
note on a postal card which came to a
Norfolk friend yesterday from Clyde
Williams , the Norfolk young man who
was killed under a train at Cheyenne ,
Wyo. , and who wrote this postal and
mailed It evidently only a short time
before ho was run over.
Another note was received by the
dead boy's mother . This note was
written after ho had been hurt , and
while he was being taken to a hospi
tal. Ho succumbed enrouto to the hos
pital and , it Is said , begged those about
him to end his suffering by taking his
life.

SHOSHONI SETTLER DOES NOT
TAKE KINDLY TO SOLDIERS.
JANQLE BETWEEN DEPARTMENTS
Dr. Mackny , Who Is Juat Home From
the Reservation , Snys There are
Many Things That are Not Equit
able and Right nt Shoshonl.
"The Shosliono reservation IH all
right and \\lll make one of the richest
sections of the country In the future , "
said Dr. J , 11. Mackay , who toturued
from the west on Saturday , "but right
now there are features of Its settlement -
ment that are rather disappointing , to
say the least.
"There was an absence of the usual
crowds at the registration , but ( hone
who made the trip to that country
went with the Intention of becoming
honu lido settlors. There \\as a luck
of the usual excursion froth at She
shonl , but those who came will remain
and become sturdy developers of the
soil. It IH a mistake to believe that
that country Is lacking In rainfall , be
cause It has an abundance. While 1
was there , about four \\eeks , six Inch
es of rain was reglsteied.
"Shoshonl Is now about the size of
Meadow ( Srovo and Is thrlytf a town
as one ever saw for a six months' old.
The railroad has put it ] ' a large hand
some depot , a warehouse 250 feet long ,
coal chutes the sl/.o of those at Nor
folk , and other substantial Improve
ments which show that the road him
faith In the country.
"But what Is going to retard the
growth of the country Is the action of
the government. The withdrawal of
the coal lands of the recently opened
reservation from purchase or occupan
cy by settlers will work a hardship
that must Inevitably retard and the
settlement and development of the
country. After the lands had been
ceded , after the Moduli bill had been
passed and the lands thrown open to
settlement , after funds were available
to pay the Indians and Irrigate the
land , one sinister inlluence after an
other has come up to chagrin liona lido
Settlers and to operate so that when
these lands are actually secured they
will have cost settlers , all things con
sidered , more than they are worth.
"After the announcement that the
lands would he disposed of by private
lottery was made the timber was sold
to private parties , thus depriving sol-
tlers of one of the great natural and
necessary resources of the country and
giving it to private parties for a few
cents stumpage.
"Next came the defective plan of
disposing of the lands whereby pros
pective settlers were compelled to re
main at registration points three
months before they could occupy lands
drawn. For some Inscrutable reason
the interior and war departments got
into a Jangle and settlers were con
fronted wtlh glittering bayonets The
American citizen does not take kindly
to the espionage of soldiers as the
monuments on Bunker hill will bear
testimony.
"Today there arc still grazing on
the recently opened hinds vast herds
and flocks belonging to private parties ,
notwithstanding they were ordered to
be removed last May.
"The water rights under the present
contracts arc to bo very much more
expensive than settlers were led to
believe and now the government with
draws all the coal lands. There re
mains still forty days In which It can
withdraw the copper and oil lands and
leave to settlers a country stripped by
corporations of Its timber , denuded of
Its grasses by sheep and cattle men
and Its most valuable resources sealed
so that they cannot be developed.
"Evidently it was thought best not
to put temptation In the way of sot-
tiers for fear they might steal some
timber to aid themselves In building
homes , so the timber was sold to a
corporation. Perchance the same flue
regard for the morals of settlers
prompted the withdrawal of the coal
lands until they can be given Into the
safe care of a corporation. One of the
reasons that prompted the railroad to
build was the hope of seeing the coal
fields of the reservation opened so as
to be able to get fuel both for the road
and the vast population along Its lines
In Nebraska. It would seem as If the
government had made a gift with one
hand and then had the other hand dis
count It and raised ( insurmountable
obstacles to Its acceptance.
"The question naturally arises , have
all these co-lncldonts arisen through
inadvertanco and lack of forethought
or were they brought about through
ilesign , so that some one might profit
by them ?
"It would bo natural to suppose that
the men who occupy the public grazing
lands and are wearing diamonds ,
where one man's profit last year was
nearly $100,000 , would oppose and ob
struct the settlement of the country ,
hut what have these men to do with
the departments at Washington ?
"The country Is not a desert , not
withstanding that It has been stripped
of every resource that could bo re
moved without unnecessary toll. It's
soil Is rich and Its resources bound
less and It has a great future. "
