cure their whiskey, but we do feel
safe in asserting that they do not
get It from any of the saloous. The
saloon men could not afford to cater
to that sort of trade. Even though
an Indian is no doubt made to pay
twice the price a white man is charg
ed for a bottle of whiskey, the prof
Its would clear the offender if appre
hended. Indians get whiskey, that
Is certain, and the saloon man, as
well as other citizens of the town
should endeavor to Hud where they
get it. This condition of affairs is
used against the liquor traffic, never
theless, it is safe to say that if there
was not a saloon in the town this
clandestine liquor traffic with the
Indians would be carried 011 just the
same. It Is against the law and
should lie stopped. This thing of
druuken squaws ami Indians being
dragged and hauled through the
streets away la the night Is a dis
grace. The city authorities are no
doubt at a loss to know who is sell
ing whiskey to the'Indlans, but
might gain some Inform ttiou by
offering a reward for information
that would lead to the conviction of
the guilty parties.

Old Settler Dies Suddenly.
The, neighbors and friends of I). E.
Hill were startled last Tuesday
when the word was passed from lip
to Hp that Dan Hill was dead. They
could hardly believe what they
heard, but It was true. What made
the announcement more startling
was the fact that Dan Hill had been
In Cedarvllle the day before appar
ently as, well as common. It seems
that Mr. Hill had not been feeling
well for some time but kept going.
On the . evening of Xov. 8th he re
turned from town and when supper
was ready sat down to eat. When
he had eaten for u while he got up
and said he had forgotten to take
his medicine. He went to his coat
to get it, when the family noticed
t".t hi ttp.s tsttcrhjs an-1 offered",
assistance, but he told them he was
all right and could help himself.
However, he kept feeling worse aud
was put to bed and died in a short
time. Mr. Hill had made his vill
that day. He possessed consider
able property, being one of tho sub
stantial farmers of Surprise valley.
He leaves a wife and nine children to
mourn his loss. Dan Hill was an
honored member of the Odd Fellows .
