> KO* 10 VOL X* MONTPELIER, IDAHO, FRIDAY, APRIL, 29, 1904, New U, P. Scheme, The placing of that part of the Union Pacific between Green River and Reno, under the control ai.d management of the Short Line, turns out to have been a shrewd move of the U. P. officials to do the Rio Grande Western Railway. Heretofore the R. G. \V. got 40 per cent of the business coming in to Ogden over the S. P. Now it don't get any, as the S. P. turns over its traffic to the Short Line at Reno, and the latter road isn't under any agreement to whack up with the R. G. W. It looks like the result will be a new road from Salt Lake or some i point m southern Utah, on the R. G. W., direct to California. Gould people, who own the R. G. W., certainly won't stand this gaff j very long, and if they cannot buy ! the Clark road they will build one j of their own parallel to it. ! Since the new scheme began work- ! The ing business has been rushing on the U. 1\, while there is scarcely ; anything doing on the R G. W.

The state land department is about to take issue with the North I ern Pacific railroad lor the posses ! sion of 10,000 acres of valuable j timber land in southern Shoshone county upon which the railway com j pany has filed scrip. The depart bigV^* 1 ^ 1 8 agents located 40,000 acres ^together, upon 39,000 of which , there is no contest. The remaining j 3 ( i 000 acr ° 8 were denied lo the state by the United States land office at/ Lewiston for the reason that the Northern Pacific railroad had al ready "scripped" the entire acreage. This precipitated an interesting con troversy, the result of which is of : vast importance to the state. ; The members of the state land | board insist that the state has a , prior right to these timber lands J and will contest their possession J with the railway company to the highest court in the land if necessary. To protect the state's interests, the j land board has determined to oust J not only the bogus settlers whose fares and expenses are said to have been paid by the lumber companies, but to lock horns with the railway J company and compel it to stand aside until the state lands are se [ lected. Going Quietly to Work, Mr. Jones, the party who is de veloping tin* black deposit up Mont pelier canyon, made the Examiner a pleasant call yesterday. He said that there was no special mention to be made of his work. He was sini plv putting a little money into the proposition in the way of develop ment. It, might turn out to be all that he could hope for, sind it might He says the indications are good, but until he has made a thor not. ough test of the deposit the -'indica tions" won't count for much. Mr. Jones expects to make a com plete examination of Rear Lake's mineral outcrop during the summer, and later on may have something of interest to say along this lino. Until then, however, he will put in his time working on his claims up the canyon, and if they develop into what he anticipates Montpelier will be glad that Mr. Jones has come among us. Laketown News.
