PIERRE, B. V., Oct. S. (Special Tele
cmm.) At a late hour tonight special
trains havs added to the registration
crowd which Is waiting for an nppor-!
tunlty to get even a lottery change at se- .
curing a parcel of Uncle Barn's faat dla- ,
appearing acre and the streets are lively
with the thronga, many of whom come
to register and others to look on and
gather the dimes from the visitor. The
Indications at present are that when the
registration booths open at midnight they
will have a good patronage for the first
hour at least, and may have another
rush when trains arrive later In the
The street crowd Is a mixed one of
lanksaekers who come from nearly every
state of the union, pleasure seekers, who
care not for the land, but to see the car
nival eights. Soldiers In uniform, who are
here to take a part In the Custer battle
reproduction, and others who will do spe
cial police duty. The sound of reveille
la now calling them to their tented camp
In the city park, while a few blocks from
them many of the crowd is attracted by
the boom of the drum which la furnishing
music for the Indian dancers who are
celebrating their visit to the city to take
part In the carnival celebration.
Crowd la Lining; I'p.
The notaries who are slated for the
graveyard shift, beginning at midnight,
are getting their supplies In shupe to
handle all who come, and a few of the
anxious ones are already gathering at
the doors of the registration rooms, al
though it la more than an hour to mid
night. Many residents of the city, who
have no registration rights, are out to
watch the crowds, and see the opening of
the event which means a great to deal
to Pierre, not only from the financial
gain which the direct operation of the
opening may mean, but In the advertising
which it will give not only to the city
but to the whole of the central part of
The Northwestern road expects to, be
gin handling special trains by morning
to bring out the landseekers who left
Chicago and other eastern points to be
In at the beginning of the registration.
The number who will register at this
point la aa yet much of a guess propo
sition, but all Indications now appear to
be that the number will be greater than
was first estimated, as letters and re
ports of the last two days with the an
nounced intention of parties coming show
a largely Increased Interest as the hour
for the registration approaches. The peo
ple of the city have been for the last week I
preparing to- handle all who come, and
ran Care for several thousuancT each duy
without any great inconvenience, as many
private parties have arranged to aupply
the needs of those who cannot be ac
commodated at the hotels. Several film
houses have representatives on the
ground, and they have been securing pre
liminary pictures today, to work In with
their moving picture representations of
the scenes of the registration and the
Custer fight. '
All Heady at Aberdeen.
ABERDEEN, 8. D.. ,Oot. i.-(Speclal.)
All Is In readlhess for the commencement
of the registration for the Cheyenne River
' and Standing Rock Indian reservations.
Promptly at midnight the doors will swing
open at the two big buildings where the
registration will take place, and the work
will be on. At the Flathead reservation
opening at Missoula, Mont., last summer,
. the notaries worked on a twelve-hour
schedule, operating from 8 o'clock In the
morning until 8 at night. Under Judge
Wltten's ruling here the registration booth,
will be open twenty-four hours a day, Sun
days excepted, from midnight tonight until
the registration closes at midnight, Satur
day, October 13. The usual Habbath quiet
of Aberdeen was conspicuous by its absence
today. As early as Saturday 'the crowds be
gan to come in, every Incoming train being
well loaded. Today the trains were crowded.
Beginning tomorrow , morning every line
entering the elty, except the Great North
ern, will put on extra trains to handle the
reservation crowds! The Great Northern is
waiting. It has made all preparations fur
caring for any crowd that may appear, and
extra trains will be put on as soon as the
necessity for them becomes apparent.
The notaries, eighty strong, are divided
Into three shifts of eight hours each. These
shifts will Vie changed at the end of each
week, so each notary, some time during the
registration, will have served through the
twenty-four hours. Two of the notaries,
Mra. Bella B. Fisher and Miss Edith Wltxel,
are women. A number of the younger resi
dents of the town, who Intend to register,
are determined to make their applications
before Mrs. -Fisher and Miss Witsel, be
lieving this will bring them good luck.
There Is much good natured rivalry, too,
over the privilege of being the flrst to
register. . .
Crowds from Nearby Polats.
While there Is a large crowd In Aberdeen
most of them are from comparatively near
by points, from the Dakotas, Minnesota.

Visit to Reclamation Projeeta.
F. H. Newell, director of the reclamation
service, has returned to his desk after
month's trip with the senate committee on
Irrigation. Mr. Newell does not seem at all
disturbed because of his wordy warfare
with Secretary of the Interior Balllnger,
and when Questioned for a statement of his
view of the outcome of the controversy,
merely smiled and said that he had nothing
to say whatever on that phase of the con
duct of his office. Mr. Newell said the
senate committee under his guidance visited
the reclamation projects in Montana, Ore
gon, Idaho, Washington, Wyoming, South
Dakota and Nebraska, spending some thirty
days In visiting these various works. An
adjournment of the committee has been
taken until November I, when the trip will
be resumed, visiting the remaining projects
In Colorado, Utah, Nevada, California,
Arizona and New Mexico. The results of
the Inspection so far have been very ad
vantageous to the work, as the senators
have become personally acquainted more
than ever with opportunities and difficulties
and apparently appreciate more than ever
the nature of the work and the organiza
tion which Is carrying It forward.
There was a general discussion of the
desirability of expediting construction which
is now being earned on with an expenditure
of about JH.OOO.OOtl per annum, this being the
present Income of the reclamation fund
The projects which have been undertaken
have been planned with a view to expend
ing economically about this sum, although
a larger amount could be readily used to

"It Is very gratifying to note," said Di
rector Newell "that President Taft Is
appreciating this matter and has announced
himself in favor of a bond issue of i0,
OW.OOa This will enable us to prosecute
work, which would otherwise wait two
years or more, to be accomplished In one
year. The plans can readily be adjusted
and the organization Is able to carry for
ward the projects speedily. The senate
committee discussed this matter Informally
and Individually expressed the opinion that
it would be practicable and desirable to

per annum for a time, securing these not
by the general credit of the government
but by the reclamation fund, the Investment
of which already amounts to over ITiO.000,000.
Western bankers express the belief that
bonds bearing a low rate of Interest and
secured by the reclamation fund could read
Uy be floated at par. As a business propo
sltlon It is unquestionably sound. Every
dollar Invested In Irrigation work returns
ultimately a gross Income to the country
of 100 per cent. That Is to say, every acre
of land reclaimed at a total cost of J0
will yield each year at least HO In crops
when handled Intelligently. If money can
be borrowed at 3 or 4 per cent per annum
there should be no hesitation in thus expe
dltlng the work. The Interest charge read
lly could be Included In the cost of the
works, as this Is repaid by the settlers in
ten annual Instalments without profit or
Interest on ths Investment."
Salaries for Medicine Mm,
The latest move toward the uplifting and
bettering the physical condition of the In
dian has Just been announced by Indian
Commissioner Valentine, the proposition
being to place the "medicine mn" of, the
various Indian reservations on the govern
ment pay roll. Recently the most In
fluential "medicine man" at the Tongue
River reservation, Montana, a character
considered as one of the bralnest Indians
of the northwest, proposed that he act on
salary. In conjunction with the agency
physician, in a campaign against tuber
culosis, a disease particularly rapid In Its
spread among Indian tribes when once
Indian agents have suggested that the
"medicine man" be Induced, if possible, to
assist the regular physicians, and that
they be allowed a small salary for this
service. The most ignorant element of the
tribes could then be leached In a satis
factory manner, since the people are ready
to follow the counsels of their time-honored
tribal doctors. Under the new plan,
the "medicine man" would simply transmit
the directions of the regular agency doctor
whose prescriptions have formerly been
discredited and generally not taken at all.
Great benefit Is expected if the tribal doc
tors can be counted upon to aid in (his
work, especially if they will,, assist In
spreading proper Ideas of sanitation, which
some Indians are slow to accept when rec
ommended by white doctors.
