IDITAROD HAS NOVEL
HORSE AUCTION
IDITAROD. Sept 12.?Considerable
interest was manifested yesterday af
ternoon in the sale of government
horses and other property which had
been the equipment of the U S. Geol
ogical Survey party which arrived at
this place last Wednesday. The prop
erty was disposed of at public auc
tion at the Adams barn, on Willow
Street and a fair-sized crowd had
been attracted by the posted notices
of the sale. R. H. Sargent, the head
of the expedition acted as auctioneer,
and Dr. Smith raked in the coin. The ]
officials stated after the sale that
they were well satisfied w"lth the
prices obtained, in view of the condi
tion of the local market, although the
purchasers had secured some good <
bargains. All of the horses and other <
property were disposed of 1
Among the horses auctioned off 1
were a few ranging in weight around 1
a thousand pounds, and ono of these <
was bought by P. Uotlla for $75, that ]
| sale being the top price. When in con- i
dition, the animals should weight close <
to 1,250 pounds. Knutc Koland pur- i
chased four of the animals at inslg- i
nlficant prices, and W. F. Kilgore i
bought three. Joe Hovach secured for <
$9 an animal which has a reputation I
throughout Eastern Oregon and Mon- 1
tant as a race horse, and which has i
won much money and many souven- i
irs on the track. Some of the animals 1
were knocked down at a figure as low 1
as $i Wada, the Jap, becamo the own- 1
er of an animal which is said to be
about as hard a proposition to handle <
as could be desired for anyone look- '
ing for strenuous exorcise.
The horses were purchased for the
! exepedltion at Pendleton, Ore., last
Spring, and are declared to have been
excellently adapted to the expedition's
needs.?Iditarod Pioneer.
