Helena Press: In the Stillwater re gion, a section inhabited less than ten years ago by Indians, the settlers are being supplied with a telephone sys tem which reaches to many parts of the Pacific northwest. There are now 1,000 people living in the valley and its tributaries who have located there since the Indians ceded that part of the county to the government. They have well improved ranches, most of them are free from debt and have sur rounded themselves with small bunch es of live stock in addition to the com forts which come to those who by dint of hard work succeed in carving out homes in newly opened territory. On the train the other (lay a Picket representative met P. M. Gallagher, superintending civil engineer of the mines and plant being opened up and erected at Storrs, near the Bozeman tunnel, by the Anaconda company.

Then he will come to Carbon county, he told The Picket, to super intend the opening up of the Bear creek coal fields. Mr. Gallagher said there was no doubt about the inaugu ration of operations at Bear creek on 1 an extensive scale by a "community of interests," as he put it.
