I will give two lots in a desirable location in the town of Dupuyer, and $100 in cash, toward the con, struction of a church in Dupuyer. J. W. MCK NIQHT. LOCAL LAYOUT. Henry Ryan started yesterday to lay the foundation of his new residence in town W. H. StClair, Choteau's tonsor ial artist, showed his smiling vis age to friends in town yesterday. There is talk of forming a new dancing club in town, the old one, seemingly, not having given uni versa" satisfaction. There is a rumor afloat that a ball will be given in Dare Lutz's new house on Birch creek next Friday evening. Particular!? lat er. The salvation army visited the towns of Neihart and Belt last week. They are wanted in Dupuyer. The mysteriarchs will help them if they Cime. C. E. Davis took possession of his livery stable yesterday morn ing and is uow ready to furnish horses and rigs to any person^ re quiring them. The Goodrich Lumber Co., of Great Falls, has filed a petition for leave to disincorporate, the com« pany having disposed of all its broperty to the Union Lumber company. What Dupuyer lacks is more residence buildings. There is not. a ivacint house or cabin in towii and in some two famlies are living. Here is an nvestment for capital. John Laughlin, road supervisor, is making some much needed im provemeuts on the roads around town tl Those who have not paid their road tax may i now have an opportunity to work it out. The contractors for the bridge across Dupuyer creek are progress ing. One of the abutments completed and Dave Lutz has gone to Black foot for the lumber to complete the structure. Mr. Monger, who came in yester day from Cut Bank, where he left the F cattle round up, says they are making a shipment now and that the next one. to be made about ten days, will be the last for this season. Now is the time when the gay young ranch hand, who went out with the boys and played 'em high, may look up'cn the beautiful yellow lenves and think of the overcoat he should have bought. He may then retire behind the barn and in troduce his shoe maker to his tailor a few times. But he'll do the same next Summer. Registratisn of voters begins to day. Dou't n eglect it. There is considerable filth accum niulating around the back-yards again in town. We have no dis eases in town, but neighboring towns have and an ounce of pre vention is better than a pound of of cure. Subscribers who, not in Dupuy. er fail to get their daily paper from this office regularly must excuse the «rregulaiity of our mail ser vice The same excuse must be offeied for the dearth of outside ne.vs in this paper. The Burgy stage line is a mon umental fraud,- an imposition on the people and a cheat to the gov ernment. The coaches have been tied up for three or four days by the drivers because they could not get their pay nor food for themselves or horses. The public are thus deprived of transporta tion unless they have conveyances of their own. Dupuyer does not even get one mail every day when it is eutitled to two, and even this accommodation is not afforded by the stage line but by J. W. Mc Knight, who engaged Wm.Orr to take out the mail both ways Something ought to be done, and that speedily, to right this griev ous wrong. Advices received here Saturday from Pocatello, Idaho, from a mem ber of tte united States Indian commission, appointed to treat with the Bannock and Shoshone Indians in Idaho, the Crows and Blackfeet in Montana and several other tribes in the northwest re garding the purchase of a portion ,of their domain for the purpose of throwing the various tracts open to settlement, show that at the outset the commission has not met with success. The first tribes treated with the Bannocks and Shoshones. The commission arrived at Pocatello on Sunday last and for the occasion a great blow out had been arranged. The Indians were notified that a great barbecue would be held and thou sands attended the meeting of the chiefs for the purpose of securing a good meal. The day set was Monday. A large number of whites assembled to witness the fete. Just about the time the commissioners were preparing to carve two large cattle, a Ban nock chief rode into camp and ordered the Indians not to treat with the great father in the près ence of so great a number of whites Their presence he said mac e sport of the occasion. His influence over the tribe was such that every Indian present refused to partake of the meal they for weeks had looked forward to, and immediately left the camp. The advice says the commission is not discouraged, but has arranged another meeting for Monday next at which time no whites but those of the commission will be present. Should the Mon day conference be successful the commission will come to Montana and proceed directly to the Crow reservation and from there to the Blackfoot.
