DeHart. state game and fish warden. The men who came a long way to Montana for hunting trips had an excellent season, and nearly all of them got the limit. There are more black bear in Montana this year than for some time, Mr. DeHart said, and he spoke of a large number of pelts which had been se cured. The government hunters who will attempt to exterminate predatory animals in several parts of the state for the bene fit of the livestock business, will not disturb the bears, but will hunt for wolves, coyotes, moun tain lions, bobcats and lynx. With the snowfall it is expect ed that many more hunters will take to the game country than have been out before. The distribution of the fish fry in the lakes and streams of Montana was accomplished this fall in an unusually satisfactory manner, Mr. DeHart said, and added that the increase in game fish will be normal.

Orville Loves Montana Orville Smith, who has a homestead in Valley county, was in Cut Bank on business several days this week. Orville at one time published a news paper at Morton, Minn., and was for years a neighbor of the writer and a brother in perf dv. "I am glad I left Minnesota and came to Montana," said Orville; "it is the land of big things, fine opportunities and liberal-mind ed people. When I prove up on my claim I expect to re-en gage in the business in one of the promising towns in north ern Montana." Move Made to Open I r> / / /~ n * n * • BtdCkjeet Ke SC TV (it 10 H . Fe titlOH is Being Circulated and Signea Another move has been inau gurated at Browning to open the eastern end of the Blackfeet Reservation, after the program mapped out and presented to the Montana delegation at the last session, but because of the opposition of Senator Lane, member of the committee on Indian affairs, and certain per sons on the reservation, the plan failed to materialize. At a conference held late the past summer between Senators Myers and Walsh and a number of representative citizens of the Reservation, it was decided |to reintroduce the measure at the coming session of Congress, and the entire Montana delegation pledged their hearty support. Charley Simons, a member of the Blackfeet Council, and a man who has the entire confi dence of a great majority of the full-bloods and mixed-bloods was selected to circulate a peti tion praying for the opening of the eastern end, the moneys to be received from such sales to be used to purchase cattle for the western end, which is an ideal stock section. In an interview with the Pio neeer-Press this week, Mr. Si mons stated his position on the question and the methods he is pursuing in securing signatures: "It will take 255 signatures of male heads of families who have rights on the Reservation, to constitute a majority, and I do not anticipate any trouble in se-' curing this number. I am not coaxing, argu;ng or importuning anyone, fullblood or mixed blood. I simply state to them Drayman Thayer is recover ing from a very severe attack of tonsilitls. Miss Ida Mohondro, saleslady at Jacobson's store, has been ill for the past several days. Mrs. W. F. Colburn and daughter, Helen, went to Great Falls on Tuesday. Mrs. Austin Miller has been quite ill during the past week. Delbert Barwell of Pleasant Valley has been among the sick this week. Dr. Hulbush has been attending the young man. Miss Betty Nansen, the friend of Henrik Ibsen, will be in Cut Bank next Sunday evening—at the Electric Theater. Charlie Chaplin comedies ev ery Thursday. See them once and always. Henry Keenholtz is home from Babb, where he spent the summer in the reclamation ser vice. Mrs. Philip Yunck of Kalis pell is spending the week at the Wm. Yunck home. Mr. and Mrs. T. B. Bomboy and Ronald Seager went over to Spokane early in the week, and will return with a Pearce Arrow car, which they purchas ed in the Inland Empire city. Floyd Strohl, who is employ ed on the Theo May ranch, had the bad fortune to fall from a wagon on Tuesday of this week. One of the wheels ran over and crushed his foot quite badly. A letter writren by H. J. Halvorson and endorsed by the local commercial club, inform ing Great Falls business inter ests that any opposition to the move to secure lower rates on Lethbridge coal would be con sidered as an "unfriendly act" was published in the Tribune of Thursday morning. the reasons that justify me in •circulating this petition, and am leaving it to them to decide what action they wish to take. Whatever the outcome is, they will not be able to say truth fully that I have influenced them in any way. The old me thod of deciding such matters in council has proved a failure, as the individual judgment of the Indians did not come into play. This, in my opinion, is the fair and proper method to pursue." Mr. Simons stated that a large number who op posed the plan last year are now signing the petition and express ing their sentiments freely in favor of the plan. It is understood that the plan is being opposed by Bob Hamil ton, who is working among the fullbloods down in the Heart Butte section of the Reserva tion. It is stated authoritative ly that Miss Helen Clark, the most brilliant woman on the Reservation and a power at Washington, has aligned herself in favor of the plan. Last year Miss Clark was not so familiar with the details of the proposal, and opposed the measure, and her opposition was a factor in blocking its passage. It is thought that Senator Walsh will reintroduce the measure early in the present session of Con gress, and leading residents of the Blackfeet feel certain that \\ will prevail and that the east ern end, lving contiguous to Cut Bank and watered by the Two Medicine project, will be thrown open for settlement and devel opment. Mrs. Hulbush Honored The ladies of the Presbyterian church gave a party Monday evening, in honor of Mrs. W. A. Hulbush, who has been an ac tive worker for the past several years. Several hours were spent in dancing and informal sociability, concluding with a toothsome luncheon. Mrs. Hul bush was presented with a cut glass jewel-case, as a token of her loyal work in behalf of the society. At a meeting of the Eastern Star ladies, the following even ing, a handsome stickpin was presented to Mrs. Hulbush, who for the past year has served as Worthy Matron, and who has, since the inception of the soci ciety here, been an influential factor in its upbuilding.

Browning Items Our friend, Dr. Gold, has done a public-spirited thing, in installing a brilliant street lamp of great power in front of the Presbyterian church. It lights up a large area of the west end. Halt a dozen street lights like Dr. Gold's planted at strategic places, would light the town. Who will be the next? Public thanks were voted, at the close of Rev. Killie's lecture on "China," to Mr. DesRosier for the free use of the Orpheum theater, with the lights and ap paratus for the slides. Our old friend, Ike Whister, is fixing things up "fine and dandy," at the Browning hotel. Our hotels are hard to equal in towns of Browning's size. Thirty children have been re fused admittance to the Brown ing public school for lack of room, in spite of the doubling of the seating capacity this year. Something will have to be done at once, is the opinion of our board of trustees. Rev. Charles A. Killie's lec ture on his experience in China during 26 years of residence in that couatry brought out a tre mendous crowd at the Orpheum Tuesday night, and everybody was delighted. Rev. Killie came here under the auspices of the Presbyterian church. Admis sion was free. The Bible Beading Circle met at the home of Mrs. Martin, in the Deavereaux property, Wed nesday night, and it will meet at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Newhaus next Wednes day night. Mr. Killie is a Protestant minister, and yet a majority of those who crowded to hear his lecture on his missionary vvork in China were Catholics, even the proprietors who dona ted the fr«e use of the theater.
