LATHlEAD INIlANS SLAUGHTERING OEER TWO THOUSAND HEAO, BESIDES OTHER GAME, 8AID TO HAVE BEEN KILLED BY THEM. SPECIAL TO THE INTEL MOUNTAIN. Anaconda, Dec. 17.-From James B. Perkins, who has just arrived in Ana conda from the West Fisher district in Flathead county, it is Jearned that the In dians are slaughtering deer and other game there in great numbers. He says that they are Flathead Indians from the reservation and a few Kootenais. They hunt in large bands and have been known to kill as many as 60o animals in one day. They have their squaws and children with them, as well as their horses and dogs, and some of the camps have as many as zoo people in them. They remain at the hunting ground until the game is all frightened away or killed and will not quit until the hunting season is entirely over. Their manner of hunting is of the sure thing order. They surround a hill or mountain on horseback with all their dogs and then advance up the hill beating the underbrush with the dogs and drive all of the game to the top where it is easily killed. It is said that the slaughter has been so great this year that in some parts of the country all game has almost been eliminated. The estimate is that these Indians have killed not less than 2,0oo head of deer be sides other game, and when they returned to their reservation, as most of them have, they had hundreds of horses packed with fresh and cured meat. For the past two winters, which have been very mild, game has multiplied very fast and at the opening of the hunting season deer was very abundant and the local hunters all had good luck for a time. This year the snow is very deep in the mountains and the game has been com pelled to come down out of the hills and they were easy victims for the pot hunter. There is little game left in Flathead county. EAGLES' BALL A WINNER Throngs of Friends Attend Their Blow out Last Evening. SPECIAL TO TIlE INTER MOUNTAIN.
