SENATOR HENRY A. DU PONT.
The government's hill ngiilimt the combination termed the powder trust
Mines aa one of tho (li fe iidantK Senator Henry A. lu l'ont of Delaware, a
member of the fumoua family of powder makers which for morn than a cen
tury baa furulshed high explosives to tho government. Senator Du Pont waa
chosen one of the mi'inhers from Pulawnro In the upper branch of congreaa
lifter a long and memorable contest, and when bo entered the sonata laat year
It waa announced thai ho bad withdrawn, from uctlve participation In the
powder business. He in no longer president of the corporation which exerclaea
dominant Influence In the affairs of the powder combination, but it Is
Charged by tho government that he la still one of Its principal atockholden.
Senator Du l'ont was bom In 1838 and la a great grandsou of Tlerr Samuel
Du l'ont da Nemoura, the French economist and statesman who' founded taa
American branch of the Du Font family, The senator graduated from West
fotnt In 1861 at the head of bla claaa aud inada a remarkable record ft
bravery In the civil war.
Our Attitude Toward Indian
By I H A NCI I . LLL'PP. United Sutra Commniiotitr of Indian Affiln.
HE ATTITUDE OF THE GOVERNMENT TOWARD THE

In round number.-: there are 100,000 Indians in the United States
at the present lime. We have about ,',i'00 agents and representatives

ground. lb-re are garden seed-, implements and supplies. On your
own exertions will depend 011r future."
This etab!i.-hes a 1 hild of nature as a tiller of the soil. An Indian

coni, and the limber and xtoue apfili
cation be rejected, from which the
limber and stone applicant, by his
attorney, filed hi appeal.
A careful examination of the tenti
mony sati-fles me that the land invol
ved is chiefly valuable for its timber
and practically unfit for cultivation
arid raising of crops. ! is therefore
such luud ai may be enltred under
the laws which provides for the entry
of hiicIi lauds. The law, however,
provide- that lands cantot be taken
uuedei the T. and S. act bich are oc
cupied at the time of application and
that appears to he the main question
involved. It appears that at one time
previous to th transactions herein,
to wit. Jan. 2H, 1000, thene lands bad
been withdrawn for irrigation pur
poses but afterwards restore. The
restoring order of May 12, 190C, allow
ed the lands to become subject to im
mediate settlement, but not to become
subject to selection or entry, until on
and after tbe 3d day of September,
I'.; the day on which these applica
tions were made. It appears that
homestead claimant Dunlap placed a
small cabin on an adjoining tract to
tbe one involved believing that the
cabin was on this tract but which
when he ascertained that it was not
on this laud was removed a short dis
tance onto the land involved. lint the
cabin was not on tbe laud involved
when the timber applicant made his
application and bence was no notice
to him that the land was occupied
when he made bis application. It
does not appear that Dunlap did any
thing more than build tbe cabin going
to show that he followed up his settle
ment w ith such acts as indicated his
purpose to make homestead entry on
the laud. -
Tbe decision of the Kegi'-ter is af
firmed. Tbe homestead application of
Dunlap is rejected and the timber aud
stone application of Latourette w ill tie
allowed should this decision become
final. Notify the parties of this de
cision and Dunlap of his right of ap
peal to the Secretary of the Interior.

III PINE TREE
Thought to be the Horn
Of an Ibex.
TREE SAID TO BE 133 YEARS OLD
Curiosity Was Found by Forest
Ranger J. S. Elder in Hill
1 A lew weeks ago The K.xaniiner pub
lished a story, copied trorn the' Silver
Lake Leader, concerning a curiosity
found by Forest Itanger J. S. Elder,
in the mountains near Paisley some
time ago, in tbe shape of a mountain
sheep's born imbedded in a piue tree.
The tree was said to be 131) years old,
reckoning from the grain, was of
thrifty growth and about thirty inches
in diameter. Tbe born protruded
from tbe trunk of tbe tree about eight
inches, and when Mr. Elder cut tbe
tree down and sawed of a block, be
found tbat the born penetrated tbe
tree aouut sixteen inches, and extend
ing past tbe heart of tbe tree. Tbe
block is now at tbe Thornton drug
store, and while exhibited in tbe win
dow waa tbe object ofouch comment
and speculation as to how tbe thing
got there. Some believe tbat it was tbe
work of a human being who put the
horn in the tree while it waa small
while others cling to tbe opinion tbat
the animal, in some way became lodg-
i ed w ith bis born against the tree and
ipetished there, the tree eventually
j growing around the born. There is
i also difference of ooinion as to what
kind of an animal it was. The first
impression was tbat it was a mountain
sheep, but as tbe horn is only slightly
curved, and tbe born of a sheep is
circled around the bead. Others be
lieve it is tbe horn of an ibex, as the
born of this animal is nearly straight.
J Whatever i is tbe thing is quite a
