EARNEST HOMESEIKERS AFTER LAND
Rash, bat steady Colsns of Mea

Chaaces ta Draw a Right
fHOSHOM. Wyo.. July il.-A remsrk
ably businesslike air . characterises th
hundreds of applicants for a slice of
the big Wind River or Shoshone Indian
reservation which ia to be thrown open
o white settlement neit month. Their
number, so far. Is not so large as at some
recent similar events, but It Is clearly
noticeable that those who are here are
here because they want land; moreover,
the majority of them have come with a full
knowledge of what land It Is that Uncle
8am has here to offer.
When the I'nltrd States land office booth
opened at i o'clock last Monday morning
about 100 homeseekers were In line. Many
of them were from nearby states Nebraska,
Iowa, Colorado and Kansas but a sprink
ling had come from points much farther
east. With scarcely an exception the men
and women, for the applicants are not all
of the sterner sex. who have appeared
during the first week are an orderly, law
abiding people, cheerful and good-natured.
They are anxious to secure homesteads In
a practical, businesslike manner, and have
no desire whatever to engage In gun play
pyrotechnics or other melodramatic antics.
As usual during the preliminary days of
such openings, since the adoption of the
drawing system by the government, the
rush has ben comparatively light. This
was expected. It need In no way lead to
the conclusion that the Interest In the
matter Is small. Shoshonl Is a long way
from the centers of population, or even
from the thickly populated farming section.
Rnilroad men point out that the low rates
are In effeot for some time to come and
that doubtless many persons who expect
to register are wniltng. so that they will
not have to mnke a second trip for. the
drawing and selection of land, If they are
successful. Thry will come here In the
later days of the registration and remain
for the drawing.
Teat Trnet nnsted."
Shoshonl Is now to a great extent a city
of tents. Most visitors have to be content
with a cot In one of these shelters. For a
few days at the start the owners of tents
organized themselves Into a miniature trust
and there were loud complaints of high
prices for Inferior 'accommodations. A
similar howl was raised against the way
the restaurant keepers sought to take ad
vantage of the situation. But It did not
last. The railroad people, fearing the ef
fects of such a policy, took a hand In the
matter and now beds and meals may be
had at prlcea that are reasonable.
Judge C. W. Smith, police Justice of
Shoshonl the town has been duly Incor
porated, having a mayor and councllmen
was the first to break the Food trust. Judge
Smith Is a public-spirited citizen of the
most pronounced type, and It was more In
defense of the good name of Shoshonl than
as a money-making proposition that he de
rided to open a restaurant. But he found
that his place, the first day It was open,
w.is literally mobbed by the hundreds who
hud been previously trying to get some
thing decent at decent prices.
Surprise fo Visitors..
Those who Journeyed here to take a
clianoe In the land drawing 'and " thought
to find a wilderness have been surprised
at the wealth' of the crops which the Ind
ians and white settlers already here are
raising. Those who thought to find that
the days they spent in this far-away spot
would be lonesome and lacking In Interest
have also had their expectations shattered.
Indian war dances, held every evening on
the outskirts of the town by about 200
Arapahoe braves, have alone furnished a
source of real Interest, especially to the
many visitors who never before saw an
Indian on his native heath. The chiefs
in full regalia and all the panoply of Indian
warfare, with war bonnets of gorgeous
hues and faces painted In every conceivable
and grotesque manner, present a striking
Apart from the Interest attaching to th
Indians and their dances, there is a keen
sense of lie ahn hi. .
lecldedly refreshing. The street fakir,
i he gambler and the sure thing man may
lie met at almost any turn, and the home
seekers are being warned, especially
"gainst the "old . pioneer," . who knows
"every foot" of the territory about to be
opened and who Is willing, for a .slight
consideration, "to put you next to a good
thing," regardless of whether you draw a
claim or not. ,
Passlaa- of Indian Domain.
With the opening of the Shoshone res
ervation to white settlement on August
15 will pass away to the pale-face another
slice of the comparatively email and
steadily decreasing remnants of that co
, lossal empire, extending from ocean to
, ocean, over which the red man once ruled
j as undisputed lord and king. This res-
ervatlon Is Just 10 years old. Its forma
I tlon and occupancy dates back Jo the
j treaty signed at Fort Brldger, Utah, July
i 8, 1168. between the Eastern Shoehones
and the Bannocks. This treaty .gave to
: these two tribes a territory seventy miles
square, watered by the Pope-Agle, the
Sweetwater and the Wind rivers. Shortly
afterwards the Bannocks were given a
separata reservation and the Shoshones
were left ia undisputed possession. Gold
discoveries at South Pass and' Atlantic
caused a rush of white settlers, and in
1S73 the Brunot treaty took from the In
dlans all of the southern part of thelt
reservation, including the mines.
It waa almost an accident that brought
the Arapahoes on this tract. In 187( the
government mads a treaty with the Sioux,
Cheyennes and Arapahoes. under which
the last named agreed to take up their
residence on a reservation set apart for
them in the Indian Territory, and they
started south from th Black Hills. When
they reached the Platte river, in th east
ern part of Wyoming, a division took
place. Part of the band kept on and went
south, where they are now located. The
others decided they would go no further
until they could communicate with th
"Great White Father" in Washington.
They were well pleased with the country
in which they were then stopping, snd
they decided t ask for a reservation
there. Winter- waa at hand and th gov
ernment saw a serious ' problem. Th
president sent Indian Agent James Irwin
to Investigate. He found th Indians al
most destitute, without horses or clothing,
and literally starving, Irw in . . reported
that th only means of saving them waa
to get thera ta the Shoshon reservation,
provided th Shoshones, their hereditary
enemies, could . be persuaded to receive
Araoahoea Tabes la.
Th matter was laid before th Shoshon
tribe in council. Th lata Chief Washakie,
on of th noblest characters in Indian
history, told th headmen of th Arapahoes
who accompanied Agent Irwin, that al
though his people and their had always
strangers and that they should com snd
stigr on his reservation until one of their
own oould be established on the ristte
river the following spring. The Arapahoes
accordingly came. For various reasons, the
Arapahoe reservation on the Tlatte wus
never estsbllshed and for thirty years
these two trlbrs. for generations implacable
foes, hsv dwelt together In pence and
In ihe negotiations for the opening of
the reservflttop the government hns recog.
nlied the Arapahoes as Joint owner. In
spite of the protests of the Shoshnnes. who
clslmed thst the lend was theirs alone.
The strip to be opened on Atigust 15
comprises an ares of 2..VO square miles.
The Irrigable portion Is variously esti
mated st from 3n.nn0 to 5no.non acres. There
Is no doubt that the Indians hold some
of the best lands In the district along the
Wind river. It Is conceded thst some of
the arid tracts In the hlghr plsteans,
which It will be difficult If not Impossible
to Irrigate, are possessed of much mineral
wealth, principally copper, and perhaps
gold. Coneldershle" quantities of copper,
some of the ore eld to run as hljrh as
$115 a ton, have lately been discovered in
the Copper mountains.
Soil la Fertile.
Of the Irrigable portion there la no
doubt of the fertility of the soil when
properly watered. The soil Is a sandy
loam, warm and fertile, snd wheat, oats,
rye. , barley, alfalfa, potatoes snd garden
vegetables are all being successfully grown.
Two Important Irrigation projects are al
ready planned by the stste engineering de
partment and work on them will begin
as quickly as the settlers are ready to
contract for the water. Contrary perhnps
to the common Impression, there are no
free homesteads to be distributed. The
land Is to be sold to those drawing claims
at the rate of tj.50 per acre, of which B0
cents per acre Is to be paid by the settler
when filing and the balance at the rnte
of 25 cents per acre annually until paid In
full. For lands not entered within two
yeara after the opening, the price Is' re
duced to $1 25 per acre, and there are spe
cial provisions also, In accordance with
the treaty between the government and
the Shoshone and Arapahoes for the entry
of nnn-ngrictiltural lands under the town
site, conl and mineral land laws.
Shoshonl a Typical Town.
The town of Shoshonl, which, thanks to
the push and energy of the Chicago A
Northwestern railway, Is th principal
point of registration, la worthy of more
tlan passing notice. Situated on a semi
arid plateau a mile abov the sea level,
about the same altitude' as Denver, Sho-
honl Is In many respects ' typical.' western
boom town. Nine months, ago hot a build
ing stood on Its present site. Except for
an occasional Indian or shepherd, there
was hardly a sign of life' In Its vicinity.
Just prior to this land rush the population
closely approximated 1,000. 'There are two
banks, two good-sized hotels, two large
general stores, one of which would do
credit to a city of 30.000; two meat mar- !
kets, a large hardware house, a handsome 1
drug store, one fine clothing store and a
millinery store, displaying the latest crea- I
tions of this kind of art; two 'large livery :
concerns, doing a thriving business, and ex- 1
tensive lumber yards show that the place j
Is already a center of business. On Its
northern , outskirts stands a log structure
which serves the incongruous ends of Jail i
and church. So far there have been few !
calls for Its use In the former capacity, al- i
though there are today In the town no less
than twenty saloons. '
An agency of civilization has been In evi
dence here, the possibility of which if it J
had been presented to the frontiersman of j
a quarter century ago would have beert re- I
celved as the delirious dreaming of a mad
man, and that Is thut -often execrated and
sometimes worker of liavoc 'lri J the more
thickly populated regions of the country
the automobile. Two of the "chugging"
vehicles are pushing civilization still fur
ther westwurd, making daily trips between
here and Lander, a distance of fifty-five
miles. Toward thla point the railroad Is
building as rapidly as men and materials
can be obtained, and It is to have the
rails down In time to carry passengers to
this old inland town by the time of the
opening of tho drawing on August 15. Al
though there is hardly a tree within ten
miles of Shoshonl, with the exception of a
straggling wooded fringe along the Big
Horn river, the scenery around Is possessed
of a certain grandeur of Its own. Fifteen
miles north of town, though apparently not
further distant than five miles, and circling
from east to west as far as the eye can
reach, extend the Copper 'mountains, with
their sharp and rugged peaks, while on the
western horizon eighty miles away, though
not appearing more than thirty miles, rise
the snow-capped summits of the Rockies.
In the Copper mountains nearly 1,000 pros
pectors are now at work.
MURDER IN FIRST DEGREE
Ker a Wbleb Charles Llebtner
Is Meld for Death of Job
Charles I.lghtner, arrested Thursday
night at Waterloo for killing a companion,
John Hansen, waa tfled before Justice
Foster Saturday morning and bound over
to the district court on the evidence of
fered. Llghtner entered a plea of not
guilty and was represented by Attorney
The examination of the several wit
nesses was brief. It wss shown by the
testimony that Llghtner and Hansen went
to Eikhorn Thursday morning with other
graders for a "good time." Hansen re
turned to th grading camp In the even
ing In a muddy and dilapidated condi
tion. He asked If there might be any
friends of Llghtner's about the camp, as
ho wanted to "clean up" any such friends.
Hansen Intimated Llghtner owed him 15
and then went to his bunk. Later Llght
ner came to the ramp and asked for Han
sen. Finding Hansen In his bunk Llght
ner Is said to have "yanked" his victim
out and denied th 15 debt. Llghtner
had Hansen's razor and while no one act
ually saw ths fatal slash Inflicted, the
Judge ruled that from the general testi
mony and the nature of the wound, which
was to the bone, ha was convinced Llght
ner killed Hansen.
Llghtner was charged with murder In
the first degree.
Th prisoner sat through th proceed

It can be said that no brewery in th
world is better equipped than the Stors
