THE CONVICT WOULD FAIN BE FREE "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 the penitentiary. 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 he willing to help an unfortunate brother.

These telegrams were exchanged yes terday over the wires of the Postal complany and concluded the arrange. rments for the opening performance at the new Harnols theater. Those who are familiar with the piece and the company say that "The Alaskan" is worthy to open the best house in Montana and that the performance will be entirely satisractory to those who have been watching with pride the progress of the building of the handsome house which is now nearing completion. Writing of the play, one of the lead illng dramatic critics of the Pacific coast, Clarence Urmliy of the San Jose Mercury, says: "'The Alaskan' is thle best musical play of the season. It Is a show that Il\ves up to every line of the advance notlces. It is at wonderr Irl its appeal to really musleal people -people who know music from make-believe." And Mr. Ury 'lotses ithl tihe fol low ing appeal: "LonI.; lift to Ahitskanrt,' and especlally to Itiwarurd Marrtindel, thei mall with the golden 'volic." \'With this $1,000-contrac't rln ll hiands for his opening night, Mr. liar nrols toolk off his crt 'lld \lwent to hustllng harder titan r everr. ie rceased, for tihe time, to Ie Mamrnrager IHarnois, anld hr' wirs your Url.'h' C(ri'lhr' aigain, o 1th llre Ir his ey' and dlterm'lnira tion ir Ills overy wr'rd.

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 tana. 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 tdo." 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 & l'ri'e last night lby The Missoulhin:'s lllvertisini l nalll l ger when the agents oIf the .lld tin hald spoken.
