Great Northern Ry., October s5th. :gog. A representative party of commercial and press interests of Minnesota and Montana traveled over one hundred sad utteen miles yesterday in territory about Celbertson. Montans. inquiring into with drawal of a millho acres--forty- eight full townships and twenty-three prt towanshps -set aside for Rocky Boy Indians, a Cae. adian band of renegade Crees. who do not speak or understand the language of any United States Indians. Your Indian Agents at Fort Peck. Belknap. and Black foot Reservation will verify this statement. The Great Northern Railway are new spending two million dollars building a branch line through withdrawal territory. understanding the Fort Peck reservation moukl be thrown open. never asseming that the publihc domain would be set aside for Canadian Indians. against the interests of the white man, who no longer have op portunities to settle about Culbertson. ac count of sweeping withdrawais. We all protest against such action on part of the government; taking from the white man the best class of Montana agricultural land to give to alien indians. The west has a right to expect fair treatment from tke Departments at Washington. and this is neither fair n.r reasonable. Your allotiag agent Armstrong left Gla.sgow thin mora ing for Culbertson. We strongly urge that you wi're hi to ho6t6 -tlie edllf lff parties have been heard from on this sub ject. The Department evidently does aot appreciate the quality of the land. There is no better opportunity for homesekera in America. There is no objection to this bend of indians being located in some re mote mountainous portion of the state. that will never he required by white men for agricultural purposes. and agriculture is something that does not interest this bnnd. They have spent the last two years as beggars to the large citdes of Montaaa-r- Helena. Butte, etc. We think your De partment owes it to these cities to relieve them of the charge. Matter has been up for a long time and the Fort Peck Indians say they will not accept them asueighbors. We have the interests'of the United States indiana at heart as well as those of the white snan, but want to see a square deal. (signed) . Louis W. Hill. L P. Ordway. Chas. Patterson, loseph H. Bhek.

Carter, when tie. latter's terse expires to rest, and in an inter view todap said: "'It was because I wanted to re tire from politics that I resigned the governorship of Montana. 1 do not think tne United States senatorship or any other public of face would tuempt me to again enter polities. I am through. I want to tvl# a rest before starting in to -worskagae. Webope in M. o.net that the legislature wilt send a democrat to succeed Senator Carter but there is ~ i'what will happen.

Montana's voting population is so evenly divided that it can easily be swung one way or the other by the voters who go into the state from time to time. Tbouhsads of pimerS a flocking into Montana,` itt tod by the promising agricultural lands that can be putchased at oemparitively low figures, and the political future of the state depends ladtely upon what section the majority of the new comers hail from. "Montana will beimme one of the richest slates of the west," added Governor Toole "for not not only is it a great mining state, but it is rapidly becoming a great agricultural state. Dry farming and irrigation have done wonders in an agrircultural way. It was not more than 15 years ago that people looked upon Montana only as a mining state, but tahe wonderful success of our farmeri has shown that anything that can he produced anywhere else can be grown in Montana, and as the state is en couraging the settlemeat plan, we probably have a greater number of immigrants than any other state in the union at this time. Jim Hill stated the truth not long since when he declared at the state fair that he had never seen any where a finer collection of food products than was displayed at that expo sition.

QSenator Clapp of Minnesota who *aS chiatman of'the committee to whom was referred the question of locating the Rocky Boys in East ern Valley County, was on the special train of President Hill which left Culbertson Sunday night. In a long interview with the, Searchlight editor, Mayor Brbeggir and Messrs Coulter and Mathews, Senator Clapp admitted that at was a grevious error on the part of the Indian Department in locating, the Rocky Boys pauper band in Eastern Valley County. He said that as soon as Congress meets in December he will endeavor to have the matter rectified, by either having them located in some other part of the state, or at least having all the land not needed for their al lotments reopened for filing. Senator Clapp took an auto mobile ride with the Louis Hill party from Poplar to Plentywood and down through the Bi.gMuddy Valley Sunday and found what he supposed to be a vast prairie wilderness to be a well settled farming community. He was pro fuse in his praise of what the Cul bertson people had done to settle the country and also enthusiastic as to the value of the land in east ern Valley County for crop raising. There were quite a number of gentlemen took the trip to Plenty wood with the Hill party. Dr. Johnston and Representative Ar nette furnished their autos for the party. All were charmed with the trip and a couple of representatives of Twin City papers who were with the party, sent long writeups r d their papers concerning it. President Hill savys that the people in the east are just awaken ing to the fact that Montana offeJur the best opportunities of any local ity in the United States for a man te acquire a farm and future inde pendence. He has takes trips tll over the state in bis auto and aa tha the possibilities of future de velopment surprises even him and he has always said that Montana had a great futnre. Prenldent Hill again assured the Searehltght ed itor that the Plentywood branch would be operated from Culbert son; that a small round house would be erected here ad-tralns operated from Culbertacl amid re turn, making the trip each day. He is exasperated at the Rocky Boys band being placed in Eastern Valley County and arranged the interview between the Culbertson delegates and Senator Clapp. Citisens of E.stern Valley Coun ty can rest assured that the Rook' Boy quehtion will be settled in Deeember and the probability is that they will not be allotted lands in our part of the state at all.
