A Senate Committee Will Soon Make
a Sweeping Investigation of the
Government's Vast Holdings in
Eleven Western States. An Alarm
ing Number of Complaints Have
Poured in From Cattlemen, Those in
Charge of Indian Lands and Graz
ing Lands.
First—The Public Domain, an area
of 186,000,000 acres, most of it in
eleven states. Every phase of its ad-.
ministiation will be inquired into. It
is charged that the Domain is a "no
man's land" and that conflicts between
homesteaders, cattlemen and others'
who have settled on or used the land
have led to more bloodshed in the
West than any other thing. Has the
administration of the Domain had any
part in bringing about the crisis ini
the cattle industry? Is it advisable to
transfer control of the Domain to the
states in which it is situated?
Second—The National Forests, 135,
600,000 acres in extent. Is it true that
more than 90 percent of this land is
serve bepn administered with fairness
to the cattlemen? Have the grazing
fees been increased in some instances
virtually treeless? Have the 110,000,
000 acres of grazing lands in the Ee
as much as 300 percent? If so, are
these increases justified? Has the
Government policy here operated
against the prosperity of the cattle
business? How can the cattle indus
try be revived to its old-time prosper-1
ity? Is it true that the plight of the
cattlemen has resulted in the.failure
of scores of banks ?

fees are in force in some parks, and
that accommodations for campers are
such as to discourage such persons

One of the largest conventions in
the history of the Montana State Press
association opened Wednesday at Liv
ingston. An elaborate entertainment
program has been arranged by the
residents of Livingston.
In addition to the Yellowstone Park
trip the annual banquet and reception
will be given as well as the musical,
a special reception and bridge party
for the wives of the visiting editors,
Three days will be spent touring the
park, as guests of Horace M. Albright,
superintendent of the Park.
Invitations have been extended to a
group of prominent eastern writers
and editors to attend the annual con
Wrigley, the chewing- gum man, has ex
plained how he built up a business of mil
lions of packages a day.
He has done is by sticking to his one line
and advertising it. He spends over a million
dollars a year in buying newspaper space to
tell the world about 5 cent chewing gum. He
has educated the people to chew gum and
to chew Wrigley's. He did not stop shouting
as soon as he attracted attention.
He says you must keep it up or the buyers
will forget you. Whether yours is a 5 cent or
a $50,000 business, keep telling about it.
Telling about it is the best thing Wrigley
does and it brings him millions. Every mer
chant who advertises will receive propor
tionate returns.
Education Drive to
Start in September
The membership drive of the Mon
tana Education association to start
near September 1, is expected to in
crease the membership from 3,200 to
4,500, according to R. J. Cunningham,
executive secretary. Preparations are
being made for the district conventions
to be held in October.

Body of Walter Shaw
August 24.—Search of the waters

to the location of the body of Walter
Shaw, lost since June 19.

Washington, Aug. 23.—The govern

forcement personnel, said a statement
tonight by Wayne B. Wheeler, general
counsel of the Anti-Saloon League,
deserves the "support of the friends
of law enforcement in the fight agaigst
organized liquor lawlessness."

Railroad Meeting
Hearing is Set for
November 2 was definitely fixed as
the date for a hearing by the Mon
tana railroad commission upon the re
quest of rail carriers operating in
Montana for an increase in freight
rates. Both passenger and freight
rates are involved. E. G. Toomey,
secretary of the board, said today.
The roads are asking no definite per
centage of increase but point to the
fact that their earnings do not allow
a per cent return on their prop
erties. To result in such a return, Mr.
Toomey said the increase would have
to be 11 per cent of present rates but
most of the preliminary discussion
seemed to center around 6 per cent as
the amount of the increase desired.
The prospect of Red Lodge having a
canning factory » very bright, Mr.
Mann, connected with the Utah
Canning Company, spent two days in
the community last week looking up
the possibility of securing a contract
for the factory, Mr. William Larkin
of the United States National Bank
motored into the country with Mr.
Mann to interview the farmers with
an idea to see how much acreage could
be contracted. Mr. John G. Skinner
made a trip to Billings Monday night
in connection with the factory and re
ported that Mr. Mann is quite con
fldent that the company will establish
a factory here.
The people of this community will
welcome a factory, as it will be a
means of adding a large payroll, as
well as furnishing market for the
farmers products.
