LOUIS W. all
Pr.lidt i, o the Oseat Norw
thLre It.llwy, Speat Plve
Mears in Culmbrstee
President Louis W. Hill, of the
Great Northern Railway, arrived
is Culbertson on No. a Sunday
morniag in his special palace car
with his private secretary and has
atutoobde mechanician. His spec
ial car was sidetracked here and
he was our guest lot some five
hours, or until tile last mail camne
through from the west Sunday aft
ternoon at about 3:3o o'clock.
It was President Hill's intention
to make an automobile trip from
Culbertson to Plentywood and re
turn, but when his auto was un
loaded from his private car it was
found to be out of order and the
trip north was abandoned. The
auto was taken to the Donaldson
garage for repairs and the experts
there put it in first class shape
during the interval between trains.
Although President Hill's arriv
al in Culbertson was unheralded
and unsung several local friends
of his met him at the depot and
welcomed him to our progressive
town. Among them were Mayor
Mathews, T. j. Hocking, editor of
the Republican, and the editor of
the Searchlight. These were en
tertained in Mr. Hill's private car
for a short time, after which Mr.
Hill spent the balance of his stay
to Culbertson in looking over his
private mail, several bags of which
bad accumulated during his trip to
Helena with the Trophy tour and
his subsequent trip through Glac
President HIll expressed himseel
as very much dissaitisfied with the
government supervision of Glacier
Park. He says that Major Logan,
who was placed in charge of the
park by the government, with an
appropriation of $65,ooo for the
improvement of the roads. etc.,
has practically spent the whole ap
propriation on a residence for him
self and a few miles of road near
it, leaving the balance of the park
without trails or roads.
Alter President Hill had spent
several hours looking over his
mail last Sunday, he started out to
make several social calls on his
Culbertson friends. His first %isit
was at the residence of Mayor and
Mrs. Walter Mathews. He was
so well entertained there that the
last mail surived before he thought
of finishing his round of calls.
President Hill's visit to Culbert
son was so quiet and unobtrusive
that probably not more than a
dozen people in town knew he was
here until after his departure.
While here Presideat Hill was
presented with an landian war bon
net by Mayor Mathews, and was
highly pleased by the gift, as he
said the war bonnet just complet
ed an Indian chie4's suit of full
war regalia which he had at home,
but that heretofore he had been
unable to secure the war bonnet to
complete the outfit. Mayor Math
ews, and one or two other Culbert
son citizens were cach presented
with a bundle of 'magazines" by
Mr. Hill, with his compliments
and the hope that considerable
pleasure would result from their
pesrusal. Tit cbief article of in
terest in the magazin was a ceO
dened epitome of "Chief Rocky
boy" and his irrigation project.
