YAKIMA INDIANS FEAR
Sap Ponlea and Dogs Will Starve to
Death More Snow Than for Many
Years in Cascades.
Hon. W II. Hare, member ot tho
legislature) from Yakima county,
Wash., reports an unusual snowfall
In tho Cascades and on the eastern
slopes ot the mountains. This Is tho
first time In many years that the snow
has banked up seven feet deep on tho
lovel, at tho summit of tho moun
tains. In 'December. Sleighing Is In
order at Ellensburg, where there Is
snow to the depth ot 18 Inches. In
Yakima the weather Is cold and tho
snow has disappeared.
"The Indians arc very much excited
over tho weather," said Sir. Hare.
"They predict deep snows and a hard
winter. Many ponies will die nnd
dogs fctarvo in tepees. Before spilng
they will begin the Chinook dances
and make things merry. Several years
ago we had snow before Christmas
and a severe winter. Tho Indians
we.it wild and danced for many days
and nights before tho weather moder
ated. One chief stabbed himself with
a knlfo until he died from tho effects
of his wounds. He did this to appeaso
the wrath ot the bad spirit and bring
on a Chinook wind to melt tho snow.
I Alfalfa $7 Per Ton.
"Alfalfa hay is selling for $7 a ton
in tho stack. It is estimated that
over 10,000 head of cattle are being
fed. on tho Indian reservation. Those
having- lands leased have received
more for pasturage and tho straw
stacks than tho annual rental of tho
lands. No one is crying about over
production of alfalfa. There was a
large crop grown this year and most
of It will bo fed on tho farms, to sheep
and cattle. Farmers are expecting
high prices for hay next spring and
are holding their hay. Tho hay buyuri
on Puget Sound will figure without
their host If the count too much on
tho Yakima alfalfa crop.
located on tho lands, nnd tho Indians
have no uso for that additional tract,
an effort is bi'ing mado to purchase
tho ncreagc Tho Indians nro holding
meetings and talking tho matter over.
Some of them have had a misunder
standing and circulated the story
about the government buying the res
ervation and giving each Indian $16.
000 to vacate.
YAKIMA RESERVE NOT SOLD.
Through a Misunderstanding Some of
the Indians Believe the Government
Will Buy Their Lands.
The rumor that the government has
offered $7,000,000 for tho Yakima In
dian reservation is all a mistake. Two
government men are there at present
making deals with tho Indians. One
of them has made somo offer for 300.
000 acres recently reverting to the In
dians through a corrected survey of
the reservation. Tho old Indian com
mission offered 25 cents an acre for
this land and tho Indians laughed at
the proposition. As many people have
