FAVORABLE REPORTS.
Seeding In Western Montana Com
pleted—Increased Acreage.
Helena, May 16.—In his crop report
for the week ending today, .Acting
General Agent Richards of the North
ern Pacific, says:
"For the Bitter Root valley and
west thereof the past week was very
favorable for crops; weather quite
warm with occasional warm rains;
seeding completed; acreage sown
exceeds previous years 20 per cent;
considerable small grain up advancing
rapidly."
Education and Entertainment.
When both of the above features
can be successfully combined in the
presentation of an entertainment of
any sort the venture is sure to succeed.
The only performance of any kind
given under canvas, which combines
these two essential points are the ones
given by Gentry Bros. Famous Shows.
The entertainment furnished by these
almost human animals is replete with
merriment for all ages, and instruc
tion for those who care to profit by it.
Any one of the Acts present ed this
season in Gentry Bros. Famous United
represents, at least, one year of con
tinued tuition to the animal, or ani
mals employed in its presentation.
Gentry Bros. Famous ßhows have
been enlarged and improved for this
season, and the fact will be quickly
appreciated when the combined street
parades are seen. The display is
scheduled for the morning of the day
of exhibition ■ in this city, which is
Saturday, May . 24th, afternoon and
night. ,

DECISION IN LAND CASE.
Right of Railroads Declared to Be
Second to Those of Actual
Settlers.
Missoula, Mont., May 15.—A deci
sion by E. A. Hitchcock, secretary of
the interior, just received by the reg
ister and receiveAof the Missoula land
office establishes a precedent relative
to the right of the Northern Pacific
Railway Company to select land in
the Bitter Root valley under their
governmental grants.
The case involved in the contest of
the company vs. James W. Tabor's
right to make final proof on a home
stead claim of 160 acres in the upper
Bitte' Root valley. Tabor settled on
the land prior to the reservation of
considerable of that district for addi
tion to the Lake Como forest reserve.
He subsequently began homestead
proceedings.
With the initiation of the homestead
claims, the right to enter was apposed
by the railroad company on the
grounds that the land was in an odd
numbered section,,and subject to the
first claim by the company. The
local office held that, with Bitter Root
valley lands, the railroad's interests
were second to actual settlers and this
ruling was affirmed by the commis
sioner of the general land office. '
Secretary Hitchcock now affirms the
conclusions of both, and orders can
cellation of the company's indemnity
selection. |
