Bill to be Introduced in Inter
ests of State Historical
By Wire From G. C. Snydrr.
Washington, D. C., May 15.—Senator
Hansbrough is in receipt of a letter
from E. R. Steinbrueck, field officer
and curator of the North Dakota
Historical society, which is endorsed
by Governor Sarles and others urging
that steps be taken by the National
Government to preserve ancient
Mandan Indian village sites in North
This suggestion has received the at
tention of Senator Hansbrough and he
has consulted with the secretary of the
interior, the commissioner of the gen
eral land office and will, so soon as the
discussion on the railroad rate bill
now going on in the Senate reaches
its conclusion introduce and champion
a bill to bring about the preservation
of these historic spots.
The North Dakota Historical society
believe that at least a few of these
Mandan Indian village sites should be
preserved for the study of those in
terested in the prehistoric times of the
state. These historic spots are now
fast disappearing under the never rest
ing plow share of the wheat grower.
"There is one," writes Mr. Stein
brueck, "about the richest in Indian
relics, in fact the second oldest Man
dan village as pointed out to Lewis
and Clark by their guide, an Arikara
chief, abandoned twenty years previous
to the expedition, which vintage site
is situated near old Fort A. Lincoln, on
the west bank of the Missouri, might
lie obtained for the purposes of the
State Historical society."
The greater part of the former
Indian village of the Mandan's is now
the property of William Simpson, of
Mandan, who, it is said, is willing to
exchange his holding for some other
property equally valuable for agricul
tural purposes. Another small tract is
held by Milton Lowrie, who also ex
presses a willingness to take lieu land.
As above stated Senator Hansbrough
has had conferences with the Interior
department officials and will shortly
introduce a bill which he hopes to
pass and thus secure the perpetuation
of the historic spots in North Dakota
once occupied by the now extinct Alan
dan Indians.

On Rate Bill Modified and Laid Upon
the Table.
Amoelated PrfM to The Evening Tlmea.
Washington, May 15.—The rate bill
consideration in the senate began to
day with a request from Senator Dan
iels to modify his statement which
•was under consideration when the sen
ate adjourned Saturday. Mr. Daniels
said he simply wished to perfect his
amendment to provide that evidence
properly before the commission shall
not be duplicated before the court.
This amendment. Senator Daniels
said, was intended to meet an evil
pointed out by the supreme court of
the United States and prevent a rail-
road from holding its case from the
commission with the purpose of pre
senting its evidence subsequently to
the court.
Senator LaPollette offered a substi
tute which made additional evidence
produced before the court available
for ten days to the commission that
the commission might, if desired, mod
ify its order. 0,n motion of Senator
Hale, this substitute was laid on the
table. Senator Hale then moved to
lay the Daniels amendment on the
table which was done without a roll
call. Another amendment was offered
by Senator Daniels, making it neces
sary to bring suits on appeal within
thirty days after the ruling of the

Seeding Is Over and Crop is Looking
Special to The Evening Time*.
Valley City, May 15—Seeding of
hard wheat is about completed and
macaroni is now occupying attention.
Weather conditions are almost perfect,
the ground is most mellow and easily
worked. Some wheat is up and looks
thrifty with good strong roots. Break
ing of prairie has commenced and
this year will see most of it turned
over and this reminds one that hay
will be a very scarce article in the
future if farmers do not begin to plant
timothy, brome grass or something
of the kind. Litchville farmers de
pend upon the prairie for their hay.
The disappearance of this natural hav
ground will leave many with little
forage unless they plant grasses. And
since it takes two years to get a good
start with tame grasses, better begin
Is Approved by the Secretary of War
For Long March Trips.
AHMclnted Press to The Evening Times.
Washington, D. C„ May 15.—The
secretary of war has approved the
recommendation of the quartermaster
general and the commissary general in
favor of a kitchen car for military pur
poses. This car will be used on occa
sions of the transfer of large bodies
of troops over distances which require
a period of forty-eight hours or more.
It has been found by a practical ex
periment that money is saved and the
men provided with better food by hav
ing an improvised kitchen attached to
the train which carries the mlong dis
tances, such as is involved in a trans
fer of troops across the continent.
Hitherto there has been more or less
dependence upon the restaurants nad
other facilities enroute.

doors of the prisons to all. Amnesty
should be restricted to those who are

Eight Experimental Plantations in
Seven Slates Gathering
By E. C. Snyder*
Washington, D. C„ May 12.—Seven
different states now have eight forest
experiment stations, established dur
ing the past year, for cooperation be
tween the forest service and state for
est commissions and agricultural col
leges. These stations are designed to
meet the growing demand for detailed
information on the propagation of for
est trwees in various regions.
As a result of regional studies and
special investigations, the forest serv
ice is already in possession of very
complete data on tree growing for
protection and timber supply, and- this
information is gladly supplied upon
request. There are many questions,
however, regarding new species,
nursery methods, mixtures, spacing,
and cultivation which cannot be satis
factorily settled by studies of existing
plantations. These matters will be
investigated by a long series of sys
tematic experiments, now under way
at the new stations.
Arrangements have been made for
experimental forest planting in co
operation with the New York state for
est, fish and game commission, at 8ar
anac Inn in the Adirondacks with the
Michigan forestry commission, at Ros
common with the University of Mich
igan, at Ann Arbor: with Berea col
lege, Kentucky with the state agri
cultural colleges at Ames. Iowa, Fargo,
N. D., and Agricultural college. Miss.,
and with the sub-station of the Uni
versity of Nebraska, at North Platte.
The work contemplated needs con
stant expert supervision, and great
care has been exercised to limit the
stations to region's where additional
data on forest planting are needed.
Most of the stations are at institu
tions where regular courses in fores
try are given, and the work is directed
by the forester in charge.
The cooperating institutions in most
cases contribute the necessary land,
and share all expenses for material
and labor equally with the forest serv
ice. The service passes unon all
plans and directs the general opera
tions. The results are the joint prop
erty of the cooperating parties.
The outcome will be to determine
the regional adaptability of new
species and the Influence of soil and
location on the selection of species,
and to secure silvicultural data on
methods of planting and cultivation.
At Berea, Ky., particular attention
will be given to the propagation or
hickory, a wood for which no satis
factory substitute is known and for
which the demand is destined soon to
outstrip the supply. On the plains
and prairies the trees will be tried
which promise to be the most useful
to the farmer under the local condi
tions. Experimental blocks will be
planted annually, but many years will
undoubtedly be required before com
pletely satisfactory final results will
have been attained.
