The Gallatin Valley National bank ipf Bo/etnan has applied to the United States circuit court at Helena for leave to intervene in the suit brought by Griggs, Cooper & Co., and a number of other eastern lirms, against Charles H. Stebbins, Charles Angus and R. T. Smith, statutory trustees of the Carver Mercantile company ; the National Park bank ; the Montana Investment com pany ; E. H. Talcott, C. H. Stebbins and Annie G. Stebbins. The Gallatin Valley National hank asks to lie allowed to share in the relief to be generally ac corded all the creditors of the mercan tile company. In the application of the bank it is stated that on Jan. 27, 1891, a decree was made dissolving the Carver by as is Mercantile company, and that on Sept, j 8.1890, the company borrowed from the Bozeman bank 85,000, for which 150 shares of the company were given as col- j lateral. Tfiis stock is now alleged to be | worthless because of the dissolution of tiie company and the misappropriation of assets. The bank tenders the certifi cates of stock to the court for whatever they may be worth. It says that at the time this debt was contracted the Car ver Mercantile company possessed 850, 000 worth of real estate and had a store stocked with 800,000 worth of general merchandise. At this time Stebbins held 498 shares of stock in the company. Charles Angus one share. On Oct. 24, j 1890, Stebbins, Angus and Smith orga- j niz.ed the Stebbins Mercantile company, j so it is alleged, for the avowed purpose of Fucceeding to the business of the Car ver Mercantile company, with a capital stock of 850,000, to be held in the same proportion as they had held stock in the Carver company. It is charged that tiiis stock was issued without any con sidération. The next allegation is that after the organization of the Stebbins company the Carver company, by its trustees, transferred everything to the so-called Stebbins company, and that the transfer was a nominal one and without any consideration, and was made to hinder and delay the creditors of the Carver Mercantile company. The bank says that at that time the Carver company was indebted in a sum equal or greater than its assets, and that no pro vision was made for paying its debts by the Stebbins company. It is also alleged that prior to its dis solution. Dec. 27. 1890, the Carver com pany conveyed all of its real esate to C. H. Stebbins, then president and holder of 498 shares, and that the alleged con sideration of the transfer was 825,000 ; and this was never paid. The bAnk says that on Jan. 24. 1891, Stebbins and Charles Angus assigned all notes, book , accounts, etc., of the value of 815,000, to tiie National Park bank, belonging to the Carver Mercantile company, and col lected about 810,(XX). and that the al leged consideration of this transfer was an overdraft for 88.927.41. The bank alleges that the Carver Mercantile pany was not indebted to the National j Park bank and that this was part and j of a scheme between Stebbins parcel and the other bank to convert the assets of the Carver company to their own uses. It is also alleged that on Jan. 2(1, 1991, the National Park bank became the holder of 497 shares of the Stebbins company and elected D. A. McCaw, its assistant cashier, president of the com pany, and another employe named ! Hanche a trustee, and that the two, act ing as trustees, passed a resolution au thorizing the execution of a chattel mortgage to the bank of all the assets of the Stebbins company to secure the pay ment of seven promissory notes aggre gating 858.508.20, and that thereupon the agents of the bank, as trustees of ! the Stebbins company delivered the mortgage to the bank which ^lso pro vided for a 82,000 attorney fee anil con veyed the entire stock 'in trade and j everything belonging to the company. ; and placed its cashier, J. C. Vilas, i„ j charge. No consideration, it is alleged, passed^for the shares or notes and that Stebbins executed the notes to secure individual debts. It is also alleged that immediately afterwards Stebbins con veyed real estate in Livingston to his father, Charles M. Stebbins, and that j there was no consideration. Toole & Wallac; if Helena, and C. S. Hartman, of Bozeman, represent the Gallatin Val ley National Bank. To He Kefttored to Citizeimhlp. Edward L. Hallenback, who was tried and sentenced in this county September 22nd, 1887, for the crime of forgery and entering u forged check, has been re stored to the rights of citizenship by [ Governor Toole, subject to the approval of the state board of pardons. It will be ! remembered that Hallenbeck. at the ! time the offense was committed, was employed in the Enterprise office, During July of 1887 he forged a check for 870 upon George H. Wright and af terward succeeded in getting it cashed 1' rank \\ hite. He was subsequently indicted by the grand jury at the Sep tember term of court upon two counts stated above, to b >th <»f which he en tered a plea of guilty. He w as sen tenced to live years Upon the charge of forgery ami two years for uttering the forged check. Hallenbeck's sentence, deducting ihe time allowed for good be havior, will expire during the present month, and the action of Governor Toole simply for the purpose of restoring him to the rights of citizenship and will not he opposed by any of the parties in terested in his punishment at the time the crime was committed. t 'on ne 11 The regular monthly meeting of the city council, held at the council rooms Monday evening, w as called to order by Mayor Talcott.

As a result of the agitation for the opening to settlement of the ceded por tion of the Crow reserve the new com mission to treat with the Indians has been appointed. By the treaty of ces sion, made in December, 1890, as con firmed by act of the subsequent congress all Indians were allowed to select land in the ceded [»ortion. Under this 551 claims were filed, some of which were contested. The uct provided that the lands should not be thrown open to set tlement until the claims had been allot ted and surveyed. Tiie supplementary act under which the commission is ap pointed provides, as an inducement to the Indiuns to withdraw from tiie ceded portion, that tiie government shall add : fcjuo.tXW to the fund for irrigating on the „r,,..*!«,,! syoo non *, i.„ unceded portion, making 8400,0U0 to be spent in furnishing a splendid and com plete system of irrigation for the Indians who will take land in severalty on their reserve. Power is given to the secretary of the interior to approve the new treaty. j if made, without further reference to congress, after which the president may ; issue his proclamation declaring tiie 5 lands open to settlement. It isthere j fore possible, unless there is trouble in he ] inducing the Crows to treat, that the land may be opened before the snow Hies.
