DAVID II, IAL, ....................... E1rlro. WILL IIANKH ........................ It-sEti TEIMSI per Year, Strictly iAtldvrnce.... $8. THUMiDAY, JUNE 20. The destitute and starving condi tion of the Indians on the Blnackfeet reservation, and the certainty of abso lute starvation awaiting them in the nest month, is ouuzing much anxiety among our stockmen in the Teton an;d Marias country. They see a crisis ap proachiug, which has been thiratening t'iem for years, when three thousand lundians will be left without a mouth full of food, by this, our affectionnte and parental government. It requires no great gift of prophesy to predict the result-they will go to killing cat tle. The stockmen pity the condition of the poor starving wretches, and in their hearts do not blame them for stealing and killing cattle, rather than die of starvation, and yet they know from past experience that if they al low them to do so that the govern ment would take no notice of their petitions for protection for their pro perty, and that the only way will hbe to take the law into their own hands, and thus arouse our rulers to a sence of their injustice to them, and disro gard of the rights of the Indian ac cording to their treaties and agroo ment with them. Men who have for the most of their lives roughed it on the frontier battling with the dangers and hardships of pioneer life; men who through such tofl and privation hasy gained a little stake in lifo, are not goingto sit quietly by and see their property taken from them. ''l. will arise and go forth to the protection of their homes and proper tg with riles in their hands as in In early days of their settlement in Montana. Our people are becoming very munch interested in the division and form adra of the 4ew county, Dearborn. The Teton people are solidly in favor of the scheme, as in faot are ill those living in the interested local ities. It appers to be a settledfaet in the minds of nearly all our people that we ought to have this new coun ty aad that all or a large majority et eur people are in favor of the .lasme. They see that it would be ).tur to pay a little larger taxes for a Y t or two, taxes that would direct ly benefit them than to pay smaller ones for years, and reoeive not a par tiale of benefit from them. They see at it it will enhance the value of their peoperty enonugh, and more than enough to offset the additional tax, that they would then have passable Smads and bridges, that they would noethave to travel 90 or 100 miles to adtend oourt, in short, that they would mueii dfreet and immediate benefit enm the many that they paid into the new county treasury as taxoes. To asoomplish this much desired ved te must select men to represent Aiin the next legislature who we can 4 id.pon to work for us. We do ans iso much want brilliant orators to taekand argue on the floors of the hboeB, but rather men who can pull wires and rustle on the outside..Tho 2nen who get us our now county will awe to. work hard, for there will be ounsiderable opposition to contend against But every member of the text legislature will have some bill to present bills that in most cases will not interest us, we want men who can and will buttonhole these gentlemen and swap votes with them. We must tfugetall party feelings, and after we find the right men, support them be they democrat or republican, And in the event of the party conventions, of the different counties nominating candirlates in and for these interested oeahties--Choteau, Chestnut and tun dziver who we believe would not work or be able to accomplish our desires, we should run independent ones, and elect them. THE TERRITORY Bobert Bailey a Dillon sheep herd er, commited suicide last week by tap ping a vein in his arm. Mr. and Mrs. John Evans of Butte lost three childern in two days from diphtheria. Ienderson the bogus mail inspector who was caught at Missoula last fall, was recently lined $500 besides being sentanoed to six months imprison meat, J. P. MeEwen of Catchiung's lower mill, felt of a buzz saw the other day and lost a hand by the experiment.

G.bscn expects to go to HIlona in a few days to miet the party of surveyors who are to locate the rail road line froIm HJelenu to Great FuIlls and this city. The. drove President Hill and party through from Helena to Situ, River and return, and the latter made arrangetnints with him to take the surveyors in hand and con vey them to such points as they de sired to begin operations at. They will in all probaubility be in the field within a week..- Plres. Ben Hogan the reformer has re turned to tt, we learn from the Independent. We are glad; for if any place on God's green earth needs his reformitory feanchings Butte is the The Harber Bro's. of Fort Benton have it appears abandonen their scheme of putting a steamer on the Flathead lake. A poor man near Maiden lost re cently thirteen horses in one night I none of which have been recovered. 'They are supposed to have been stol on by an organized band of robbers. Last Wednesday night a burglar attempted to break into the residence of Capt. Mills, editor of the New North West but on learning here he was, he immediately dropped his tools and fled. He said he didn't care about tapping the U. S. Treasury or any of its branches. Some Flathead Indians on Tuesday evening had a procession through town and a dance in the suburbs that attracted considerable attention. They adhere to the aboriginal pre.nu- I tion from becoming overheated in dancing. It is estimated that the clothing worn by one as he jumped r into the ring would cost about two f cents.--New Northwest. An old-timer I at left Mis.-oula. In 1 1870 Joseph bLag<,e brought from r Helena a No. 7 Washington hand press with which he began the publi cation of the Missoula Pioneer. Ever since then the old press has done faithful service, until last Saturday, when it went its way to Murray , Ida ho, to be the means of publishing an- N other Pioneer at that ilace. The press came up to Portland from Cali fornia sometime between 1800 and '62 and probably did some work there. In 1802 it was taken to Lewistown, Idaho, by Frank Kenyon, who start ed the Journal, and where it remain ed for three years. In 1805 Joe Fa vorite brought it from Lewistown to a Helena, and started the Radiator, the Z first paper published in Helena. The c main frame of the press had been out in two in early time for more conveni ent transportation by pack animals. That is the reason it has again start- e d on it journey. The old press has seen many chanpges. Having reached a as far eastas Helena, it seems to be getting back to the coast. It has sent out many an interesting story, many a sad mention, many an excit ing rumor. Many a tramp printer, wandering over the continent has pulled on its lover, and sweated and swore he'd quit the business, but every now and then the same old tramp comes along, recognizes the old friend and gives the lever a yank as a joyful greeting. And the old press, like the old tramp, goes on its wanderings in search of richer lands and fatter takes. So runs the world S away.-Missoulian. The Fort Assinaboine band consist n of 21 pieces, will assist the Bout- ' onltes to duly celebrate the Fourth. ADDITIONAL LOCALS. Benton has now potatoes. The Winnipeg Free Press, hopes that a vigilant committee will be or ganized to hang Louis Roil as soon as his moccasins touch B]ritish soil. Holter Bro's. are going to build a planing .mill and sash, blind and door factory, at Great Falls. The machinery is now in transit from the east. The steamer Benton arrived at that port on the 24th, with fiftoon passing ors and 375 tons of freight. We no tice that there was on her manifest 502 packages for J. H. McKnight, of I. ort Shaw. Dr. H. H. Wynne, the well known specialist of the Eye, Ear and Throat, of Helena, has recently performed a successful operation for the removal of a largo ionoy tumor from the nose, which involved all the bones of that cavity, Mr. John McCluro of Haily, Idaho, was the patient. * The number of potty thofts that have boon committed hero during the past few weeks l:na no precedent in our town's history. It has become necessary to watch or securely lock up everything that can be curried away. Broke men are corstantly coming into town from Helena, Ben ton and the British possessions. Some, no doubt, are good, honest men, willing to work and on the took out for a job, but there is no work here. All our ranchmen have what help they require, and if they did not, they would not employ a pilgrim as long as it was possible to find an old-timer out of ajob. Hundreds are tramping on toward Calgary and the Canadian Pacific railroad, and meet ing on their way hundreds coming from theres all broke, footsore and hungry. The Northern Pacific and Coeur d'Alene bubble are responsible for much, if not all, of all this over flowing of Montana with broke and destitute men. This town catches them all, whether they are tramping north, south, east or west, they il ways stop over a day in Sun River. We think that if the present affairs lasts much longer, that our county fathers will see the noctsswity of hav t ing a jail built hero. South Fork Items, F;80 rn ].Ftou, l. T. Juno 10 ]t 'D.
