BUREAU HEAD SAYS
State Civic Bodies and Citizens at
Isirge to Have a Part in teh Big
"Montana Month" Program As
Outlined by Railroad Officials.
Machlnery designated to pro
duce "sound and sane" data on
latent Treasure State agricultur
al resources Is now being set up
throughout Montana looking to the
full co-operation of the citizens
in the Pacific northwest national
railroad land settlement campaign
scheduled to open Nov cm tier 1 and
continue throughout 1025,
cording to reports received by L.
A. Campbell, head of the depart
ment of labor and publicity of the
stato depart n>' at of agriculture
at Helena.
Members of the state land settle
ment advisory board, associated
with representatives of virtually ev
ery commercial and civic organiza
tion, are framing the program along
the lines suggested by the traffic
managers of the Burlington, Great
Northern and Northern Pacific rail
ways who recently toured the state
and explained the plan to spend
three-quarters of a million dollars
in advertising the northwest within
the next 18 months.
Information relative to agricultur
al conditions In all sections of the
state Is being prepared for insertion
In eastern and mid-western farm
publications beginning November 1.
It Is expected that 24.000,000 people
will be reached through the medium,
preparatory to the expansion of the
campaign In December—designated
as "Montana Month"—when the
data will he presented to 60,000,000
readers of national, dally, weekly
and semi-monthly magazines and pa
pers. Thousands of Inserts convey
ing greetings from Montanans are
now in the bands of commercial
clubs for use In letters from Montana
business men to outside cities.
Stabilization of Montana financ
es during the last six months and re
sults of an extensive study of the ad
aptiblllty of the different crops to
the various sections of the state, will
be stressed throughout the cam
paign, Mr. Campbell states. Efforts
also will be made to discourage any
attempts to create "boom" condi
tions ,he declared, the basic Idea be
ing to secure new settlers from the
ranks of successful farmers wbo wish
to acquire land more suitable to
their needs.

Billings Polytechnic
Winter Termjto Open
On NovemberJTenth
In order to meet the demands
of young men and young women
who cannot enter school regularly
at the opening of the term and who
must leave before the close of
school in the spring, tbe Billings
Polytechnic Instiute Is opening a
winter term, beginning November
10th, to run for eighteen weeks.
It is offering classes in all commer
cial subjects, Including shorthand,
typewriting, bookkeeping, civil pen
manship and spelling. In grade sub
jects it is offering history, grammar,
and arithmetic. Special courses are
offered In practical electricity, el
ectricity for the car; radio, auto
mechanics, farm Carpentry; and ag
riculture.
Vocal and instrumental music al
so are included In the curriculum.
The entrance requirements will be
based upon the ability of the student
to do the work for which he enrolls.
The cost has been set at a very low
figure, and will not exceed for the
eighteen weeks, for board, room and
tuition, not including the fees, 5165.
Age Is no barrier to enrollment at
the Billings Polytechnic Institute.
Many are already taking the courses
who failed to receive the advantage
of schooling when in their teens.
The fac ilty consists of people who
are in sympathy with those who have
been denied the early opportunity
for education— They are well prepar
ed, holding college degrees, and many
of them with long years of exper
ience In the teaching profession.
Boitte Tailor, After 40
Years Waiting Strikes
A Rich Lead of Ore
A tailor forty years in Montana,
investing his earnings year after
year In a mining property near
Marysville, William Geriet, who
conducts a shop in Butte, recently
received several assay reports that
give an Indicatloln of the fulfil
ment ot his life's dream, and a re
alization of his investment which
he made year after year with the
money he worked for.
A vein struck a few days ago In
the Florence mine, returned assay
reports from $12 to $20 a ton in
gold and an average of five ounces
of silver to the ton. The most pro
mising angle of tbe new strike is
that the lead Is 35 feet wide and the
character of the ore is like all ore
found In the Marysville district,
free milling and easy to treat.
Mr. Geriet and associates control
five claims In the Maryscvlle dis
trict known as the Sires Mining com
pany. The property is located in
Saw Mill gulch, on the same moun
tain as is located the famous Drum

present enormous production.
The story of Wyoming's wonderful
development In petroleum production
Is an Interesting narrative, and con
tains many facts which should be
of more than passing Interest to the
oil interested Montanan. In part, the
booklet elates:
"The story of Wyoming reads like
a page In fiction. It Is one of the
last of the old frontier stales to come
Into Its own. In tenltorlal days it
was a raecca for plainsmen and stock
men, Its vast areas providing ideal
conditions for tbe grazing of all kinds
ot livestock. Historically It Is recog
nized as one of the romantic spots
of the old West, where Indian, Hunt
er, trapper, and fur trader and emi

"Some of the early explorers of
the Western country found within
the present borders of Wyoming

from Fort Benton was fraught with
thrilling adventure. As tho boat was
carried >long further and further in
to the land of the Sioux, traveling
became so dangerous t hut lor hun
dreds of miles, the little bund con
cealed the scow In the bushes by day
and journeyed only by night.
• At last, when but two days distant
from Fort Rice, danger was thought
to have passed and tho voyagers
pushed boldly out by day. Floating
on the turbid waters of tho river
with scarcely a sound marring the
silence, the crack of a rifle came like
a thunderbolt from a sky of blue.
Closely following the shot one of
the men In the scow leaped to his
feet, gave a gasp for breath, and
plunged overboard, his life's blood

"One of the early Wyoming plo
neers In the oil Industry was Cy
Iba. He first made his appearance
in Wyoming In 1861 when passing
through on his way to the mines
of California and other points. Be
ing a prospector and miner he was
a keen observer of mineral proper
ties and his attention was drawn to
the oil seeps then known. Iba
with Jim Bridger. Kit Carson and
others, collected oil from a spring
on Poison Spider at that time, mixed
It with flour and sold the product to
emigrants (or axle grease. It was
probably the first commercial mar
ketlng of Wyoming's petroleum.
| resources which would come into full
realization as time and civilization
progressed,
"Probably the first discovery of pe
troleum In Wyoming was by the In
dians who gathered the fluid from
the oil seeps and used It for medi
cinal purposes. As early as 1849 at a
place now called Hilliard In Uinta
county a petroleum spring wa* known
to exist. Emigrants on the old Ore
gon Trail,, It Is said, collected the
oil and used It for medicinal purposes
and for greasing their wagon wheels.
The First Discovery
The First Location.
'Being a man of vision Mr. Iba
continued his search for precious me
tals In the Pacific country, but fin
ally returned to the Black Hills
country In the quest of gold. Dur
ing the early elKlitles, disappointed
at the prospects of finding gold in
in the Atlantic City and South Pass
districts, with some associates ,ho
was induced to remain in this Im
mediate section and In 1883 Mr. Iba
placed his first location stake on the
east half of Section 11, Township
40 North, Range 79 West, known as
the Salt creek oil field. At that
time locations were made under the
placer mining law entailing a neces
sity for digging trenches, sinking
shafts in making open cuts In devel
oping oil seeps for assessment pur
poses. In this manner, Mr. Iba be
came very closely connected with oil
development In Wyoming.
"The first flowing well to bo drill
ed In the state was In the Dallas
field in 1883, and about the same
time ranchers In the Big Horn Basin
used oil from a spring at Bonanza
for illuminating purposes. The
wells drilled in the Shannon pool
Just north of what la now known as
the famous Salt creek field, came In
during 1889 and 1890.
"During 1896 and 1897, Iba and
some of his associates made new lo
cations and some of the claims were
carried to patent ns early as 1896
By this time outsiders saw the pos
sibilities of petroleum in Wyoming,
and French, Dutch, Belgian, Eng
lish, Canadian and American capital
became Interested In the early de
velopment of the district with vary

"Among those attracted to the
state was Phillip M. Shannon, well
known as an operator In Pennsyl

swift at this point and in handling
their rifles those in the boat looked
no t to the steering our. With a
crunching sound the scow went full

through a hole In the square prow

stand of the little party of fighters,

in the little band of whites there

The bodies of the w hite men were

und after tho scow had been looted
tbe shore wore quick to see their ud
vantago and swam out to finish their
of its rifles and provisions, It was
pushed Into tho swirling stream and
speedily sank to tho bottom carrying
with it Its precious 'ache of gold.
The Frenchman, Pierre Luvalle,
soon left tho Indians and enlisted

that he might be near the spot whore
the treasure was lost. Some months
later he confided the secret to Rich

latter's son.

Where the boat had sunk a sand bar

prow. The barking of an Indian dog
and the zip of a bullet warned them
that the white man's foe was on the
opposite side of the river, and they
at once sought safety In the woods.
A running fight followed in which
Lavalle was wounded and Rice and
rls son reached the fort In safety.
In 1867 Pope, whose son had in
the meantime died of fever, related
the secret of the treasure to J. I).

sand, both named In his honor. This
really marked the first active de
velopment of commercial oil in the
state, though the product was large
ly lubricating oil. It was hauled by
string teams to Casper and at first
was sold without refining to the rail
road now known as tbe Colorado &
Southern. In 1895 a 60 to 100 bar
rel refinery, the first In Wyoming,
was completed by the Pennsylvania
Company at Casper, for handling
such oil.
"From that period forward de
velopment In the Balt Creek struc
ture was more pronounced, though
other sections of the state were be
