Drawing Will Do Held August
0 for Indian Land.
Coour d'Alene, Idaho, July 15. Reg
titration for lands In the Coour d'Alcne
Indian reservation commenced in the
city at 12 o'clock last night and will
conclude at midnight on August 6. A
heavy registration at least 100,000
people is expected, and the notaries
arc ready to do their skaro of tho labor
connected wiw ioe opening.
Many of them were already central
ly located and are in their old offices,
but others ho constructed temporary
buildings in the business section. A
charge of 25 cents will be made for re
ceiving applicat.ois, but there is noth
ing to prevent a notary from acting as
agent for applicants, in which case he
will notify has clients as to their suc
cess in the drawing and receive a com
pensation for it.
All the hotels and lodging houses
have prepared for the rush, and every
availaole room will be used. Some of
the hotels have rented building and
equipped them with beds and many in
dividuals have secured buildings and
equipped thm for sleeping purposes.
Yet with all of these accommodations
It is feared the large crowd will not be
amply provided tor.
James W. Witten, superintendent in
charge of the opening of the reserves.
estimates that 100,000 men and women
will file for lands, many applying for
all threo reservations, making a grand
total of probably 200,000 applications.
From 16,000 to 20,000 applications
from veteran soldiers and sailors are
expected. A single notary already has
210 veterans listed for filings.
Some of the homesteads to be drawn
August 9 are valued at $15,000 to $20,
000. It is believed about one applicant
in 15 will be able to secure a homestead
worth taking up.
Miss Harriet Post, daughter of At
torney F. T. Post, of Spokane; Miss
Helen Hamilton, of Coeur d'Alene,
daughter of General Ortis Hamilton,
and Miss Christina Donlan. daughter of
Judge Donlan, of Missoula, have been
chosen to draw all the numbers for ap
plicants for lands in the Coeur d'Alene,
Spokane and Flathead reservations re
spectively. On Auguit 9 these girls, who are
atxut 12 J ears old, will be blindfo'ded
and placed beside the hugh piles of
probably 2U0.00O envelopes containing
applications for lands. These they will
drew at random, homescekers being
given their choice of lands In the order
in which the names are drawn.
Thero is little evidence of a rush to
file applications in Spokane for the
Spokane reservation, but there will be
a crush on the trains to Coeur d'Alene,
35 miles distant.

HOT CONTEST ASSURED.
Senate and House Will Each
Out for Lumber Rato.
Washington, July 16. Tho mako-up
of the committco on conferenco that Is
now handling the tariff bill, endeavor
ing to compromise tho differences be
tween tho houso and senate bills, is not
such as to insptro confldonro in tho
hearts of those senators and represent
atives who favor tho scnato duty on
rough lumber, $1.60 per 1,000 foot. It
may be that that rato will bo re
tained, but thero is only one Republi
can on tho conference committee who
is directly interested in the lumber
schedule, and that man is handicapped
because be is a big lumberman.
Of tho scnato conferees, not one has
any direct interest in tho tariff on lum
ber. Aldrich, Rhode Island; Burrows,
Michigan; Penrose, Pennsylvania;
Hale, Maine, and Cullom, Illinois, rep
resent states that care far moro about
cheep lumber than they do about high
protection for tho American lumber
man. A few years ago Hurrows might
have been somowhat concerned, but
now his interest is secondary. On tho
houso side, Payne, New York; Daltull,
Pennsylvania; McCall, Massachusetts;
Boutoll, Illinois; Calderhead, Kansas,
and Fordney, Michigan, aro tho confer
ees, and Fordney is the only enthusias
tic advocate of a high tariff on lumber,
for ho owns fabulous quantities of
timber land and operates a numb ir of
It will be the contention of tho
houfo members that tho duty on rough
lumber must be reduced $1, tho rato
fixed by the house in the Payne bill.
They will insist that tho houso will not
stand for $1,60, and will point to the
fact that it was only by a narrow mar
gin that the house rejected a frco lum
COREA ACCEPTS CHANCE.
Transfer of Courts to Japan Quietly
Seoul, July 16. Tho news of tho
new agreement between Japan and
Corea arranging for the transfer of
Core an judicial authority to Japan, is
being quietly accepted here, now that
its terms aro fully understood.
It was feared that some disturbance
might follow tho public misapprehen
sion that the disbanding of the court
guards was Included in the abolition of
t e Corean war office. Now that it Is
known generally that the guards are
not to be discharged, but merely are
to be placed under the command of the
emperor's aide-de-camp, tho cause for
uneasiness has been removed.
It is believed that tho convention be
tween the two countries relative to tho
transfer was signed July 12. Tho pro
visions of the document, besides the
changes mentioned, look to the control
of Corean prisons by the Japanese.
