Farmers Doing Well.
Tbe interest that Western Canada
has aroused for Borne years past Is
growing in intensity. The conditions
of the crop of 1907 are such that re
sults can be spoken of with some de
gree of certainty. The yield of grain
will be about 80,000,000 bushels and
the price the farmers will realize for
it will be upwards of seventy million
dollars. The oat crop whs good in
most places, and the crop of barley
will be very remunerative. Those who
know of the generally unsatisfactory
conditions during the seeding, grow
ing and ripening period in the United
States during the past season, will
look with righteous distrust on any
statement intended to give the impres
sion that Western Canada conditions
were so much different. Generally,
they were not, but the conditions of
a highly recuperative soil, long and
continuous sunshine, are conditions
possessed by Western Canada and not
possessed by any other country on the
Continent. This is why it is possible
to record today a fairly successful
crop, when in most other places the
opposite is the case. The yield in all
grains is less than last year, but the
higher prices obtained more than off
set any falling oft in the yield. Take
for instance the Province of Sas
katchewan the wheat crop will be
worth $21,135,000. Last year the
same crop was 35 per cent, larger and
the quality better. The yield was
worth $24,000,000. Oats and barley are
very Important factors in all three
central Provinces. At Gladstone, Man
itoba, returns from one farm were $27
per acre from the wheat land, $35 per
acre from oats, and $30 per acre from
barley. The yield of wheat at Dauphin,
Manitoba, was 20 to 24 bushels to the
acre but not of a very good grade,
but the yield of barley in that section
was good and so was the quality and
price. At Meadow Lea, Manitoba, 15
to 20 bushels to the acre were
thrashed, bringing a round dollar on
the market. At Oak Lake, Manitoba,
on some fields where 21 bushels were
expected, twelve and fifteen was the
result; others again where twenty was
looked for gave twenty-two to twenty
five. One special patch south of town
on J. M. McFarlane's farm went as
high as thirty bushels to the acre. At
Sheho, Saskatchewan, oats yielded
from 60 to 65 bushels to the acre. Sam
Wunder threshed 2,500 bushels from
forty acres. The sample is good and
weighs well. At Lloydminster, Sas
katchewan, W. Bibby threshed 97
bushels of oats to the acre, and two
others were but little behind. Wheat
here reached 35 bushels. At Portage
la Prairie, Manitoba, from a quarter
section all in crop, Alex. McKinnon of
Ingleside threshed an average pf 33
bushels No. 1 Northern. I. J. Grant
had 190 acres, yielding 6,000 bushels
of the same grade. These illustrations
taken from widely distant districts
(and thousands of others could be
produced) show that the year 1907 has
not felt the serious effects from severe
winter, late spring, or unfavorable
conditions during the growing season
that might have been antitcpated. In

influx of Settlers and Quarantine Cut
The day of the big stockmen is past
in Northern Montana. Prom the coun
try^touching along the British line on
the open range country between the
Missouri river and the boundary fully
500,000 head of cattle have been ship
ped during the past months, and many
large cattle companies have gone out
of business. A clean sweep has been
made of the entire range by cattle
men who have been in the business
ever since cattle raising has been an
industry in Montana. The steers sold
well in the Eastern markets, but the
cows and young stock met with poor
prices, as they had to be sold either
as feeders or canners.
The stockmen have a number of
reasons for quitting the business.
One is the losses last winter. An
other is that the country is being
more and more closely settled every
year, and still another is the estab
lishment of quarantine districts.
On the whole, cattle prices aver
aged well this season. One compa
ny has shipped about 800 steers of the
average weight of 1,400 pounds and
received close to $5 a hundred, or
nearly $70 a head. If it had not been
for the dipping regulations it is be
lieved each steer would have brought
$6 more.
The reports regarding the severity
of last winter sent out last spring
and during the latter part of the win
ter were not exaggerated. The sheep
loss was the greater, and it is said
that there are less sheep in Northern
Montana to-day than in many years
Across the Canadian line the cattle
losses' were even greater than in Mon
tana. A few years ago a number of
Montanans settled in the range area
of Alberta. The first winter they were
there it was open and little snow fell.
The cattle remained plump and fat
throughout the entire season, and the
settlers thought that they had found
the stockman's Paradise. They did
not plan for a cold, long winter and
did not put up much hay. In conse
quence they were caught by the so
verity of the weather, and some stock
men practically were wiped out. All
these men in the business, either in
Montana or Alberta, have learned a
lesson, and never will essay to hold
more stock than they properly can
feed during a long winter season.
Prosperous Year Is Celebrated at Bel
The Indians on the Fort Belknap
reservation, north of Great Falls, now
are celebrating the first Thanksgiving
they ever had. According to informa
tion received from Harlem they are
gathering near the agency buildings
and are having a grand feast along
with a continuous round of pleasure.
The occasion of^he celebration is the
unusually productive season which
has just passed in the northern part
of the state.
The Indians intend to show their
appreciation of the Great Father and
to return thanks to him for not send
ing storms, frosts and snow to inter
fere with the growth of their crops,
and for giving them the greatest crops
that ever have been raised In that
section of the country, besides an
abundant range for their stock. They
also are giving thanks for the large
supply of wampum which most of
them possess, for the reported flurries
of Eastern currency have not yet been
revealed to them. In addition to this,
they are joyous over the fact that the
largest sugar factory in the West will
be built near their reservation next
The Indians feel that the present
year has been as prosperous for them
as for their white brethren. During
the celebration they are dressed in
their gorgeous and sacred dancing
togs and are covered with their pret
ty scarlet paint. A large, juicy roast
furnishes the substance of the feast.
This is the first feast of the kind
ever held in Northern Montana. Be
fore the Indians have had powwows
and smokes, but nothing like the pres
ent celebration has ever been attempt
MYSTERY in death.
G. E. Anderson, * young man about
twenty-five years of age, died at St.
Vincent's hospital at Billings, and offi
cers are making an investigation of
the case to ascertain whether he com
mitted suicide or was murdered for
some money which he had recently
received from relatives In the East.
Anderson was taken to the hospital
Friday evening. He was in ancon
scious condition and was believed to
be suffering from pneumonia. Inves
tigation on the part of county physi
cians revealed the fact that Anderson
had been poisoned. It is believed that
he had been given an overdose of
some powerful drug and while in an
unconscious condition his money had
been taken.
Murders Polish Laborer, but Is Cap
tured Later.
John Sevodas, a Pole, was stabbed
near Terry by Mattio Manilla, an Ital
ian. Both were working on a bridge
being built across the Yellowstone by
the St. Paul road. Manilla carried out

afterward near Terry.
New York, Nov. 28.—John G. Jen
kins, Jr., until recently president of
the Jenkins Trust company of Brook
lyn; Frank Jenkins, deposed head of
the Williamsburg Trust company, and
Fred Jenkins, formerly a director of
the latter institution, were jointly in
dicted yesterday for forgery in the
third degree.
The indicted men are brothers, and
the charge against them grew out of
loans made the brokerage firm of F.
& J. G. Jenkins. Jr., & Co. by the Jen
kins Trust company. The transac
tions were disclosed during the exami
nation of the trust company's books
made by the state banking department
after the institution had suspended.
These revelations with others
brought about the receivership and
later were laid before the Kings coun
ty grand jury, which has concerned
itself with banking irregularities in
The jury after indlciing Former Pres
ident Howard Maxwell, who yesterday
committed suicide; Former Cashier
Arthur Campbell and Director William
Gow, all of the Borough bank, yester
day turned its attention to the affairs
of the Jenkins Trust company.
The three men indicted were ar
raigned and after entering pleas of not
guilty were released, each under a
bond of $10,000.
Husband Killed—Woman Says Shoot
ing Was Accidental.
Chicago, Nov. 28.—George Mayer, a
proofreader employed on a local news
paper, was shot and instantly killed
by his wife in the parlor of their
home yesterday afternoon. Mrs.
Mayer told the police that the shooting
was accidental, saying that the weap
on was discharged when her husband
attempted to wrest it from her.
The fatal struggle between the two
was witnessed by their two small chil
dren, Robert, aged seven, and William,
two years old. The older boy declared
that his mother started the quarrel as
soon as his father entered the house;
that his mother threatened to shoot
his father, and that the latter then at
tempted to seize the weapon.
Sweeping Reductions Are Promised in
Chicago. Nov. 28.—Sweeping reduc
tions in the prices of meat and provi
sions are promised Chicago consum
ers as a result of a similar decline in
the prices of live stock that has been
going on for the last forty days. Re
ductions in the wholesale prices of
these commodities were made yester
day averaging about 10 per cent for all
kinds of meats and poultry. This re
duction will reach the consumer by
the end of the week, according to a
statement made by a prominent retail
er last night, and the new schedule of
prices undoubtedly will be put into
effect at that time.
