- There was one steamboat on the Kootenai River at this time, the HAVISTON, which went up to Kootenai Falls. "Judge Smith" captained it. According to these early settlers most winters had more snow than is currently the case. The Indians had burying grounds at the south end of Bull Lake. There they made monuments of dirt and gravel. Nothing was in them. More of them were at the upper end of the lake on the place Foster Stanley lived on. He had a whole pile of Indian relics that he plowed from the land where he planted his orchard.
