Government Has Ordered n Investi
gation of the Status of the Allot
ment$ Made Several Years Ago.
Ft. Colvllle, May 14. An order that
may have the eltcct of throwing open
to white settlement many hundreds of
acres of choice farming land In tho
Colvllle Indian reservation has Just
been lssuej at Washington, D. C. and
while it may not meet with tho ap
proval of the Indians, some of whom
may be forced to give up their valua
ble homes, It will be a grand chance
for some homesecker to secure a farm
that has already to some extent been
cultivated by the Indians.
The government has ordered a gen
eral investigation of the status of In
dian allotments, Whlch may result In
the cancellation r n ,inn.i. nr
claims on the reserve, and the throw
ing open to settlement and entry by
citizens of some of tho best lands in
Eastern Washington.

Northern Pacific Receives Two for
Use on Mountain Grades,
Tacoma, May 14. The first two of
10 new engines for the Northern Pa
ciflc's western service have been sent
West, and should arrive on the coast
within a short time to be dressed up
lor active service. The new engines,
larger and stronger than any others
ever seen in tho West, aro what Is
known as Class Y5. Just preceding
them were locomotives of the Class
Q type, wonders in their way, but
not as powerful as the later locomo'
The receipt of this new motive pow
er will enable tho Northern Pacific to
send East some of the larger engines
the railroad has been using in its
mountain uervlce and elsewhere on
its Western lines. The newcomers
will do so much extra work that the
older locomotives are to be transfer-
red to a more favorable country.
The new locomotives may be used
in the passenger service, but the com
pany is making a number of track im
provements before sending out the
monsters. Bridges and false work are
being strengthened to stand the add!
tional strain, and it may be some tlmo
before the passenger trains aro haul
ed over the road by the new power.
Each of the new locomotives is
equipped with electric headlights of
300 candle power. In effect the new
light is as capable as the searchlights
of the navy, and will illuminate the
track for miles ahead, on straight
road. Small electric motors, set be
tween the smokestack and boilers of
the engines, furnish the current and
also generate the power for the In
candescent lamps In the engine cabs.
