fied the interior department that the
auctioning cf lands within the five-mile
limit of Pocatello, on the Fort Hall
reservation. Idaho, has been aban
doned. During the seven days that
sales were conducted, only 09 tracts
were disposed of, from which the gov
eminent realized HZ, 437. Bids were
made for fcur additional tracts, but
were subsequently withdrawn. With
these exceptions, no purchasers ap
peared to take np the hulk of the land,
which was considered not worth the
minimum price of f 10 an acre fixed by

Tho fact that the sales were so few
