NEW YORK, Oct. 29.—Forger Phillips'
examination was continued yesterday.
Hart, the publisher of Truth, after refus­

duce it. Col. LocKwell, a personal friend
of Garfield, was sworn. He had thous­

fied to the genuineness of some letters
from Garfield to Jewell. At this point
Hart was given three hours to produce
the original letter, when it was produced.
The envelope was not along, but on be­
ing promised protection from other suits,
agreed to bring it to-morrow. The testi­
mony of experts on the fac simile resem­
blance of the letter to Phelps' and Gar­

There may be black, blue, yellow or
green tickets in the field, or 'tickets with

man has a right to vote one square ballot
and the right to have that ballot counted
as he cast it. The law gives him the
right to cast a secret ballot. No man lias
alight to know for whom that vote was
cast. Those who attempt the use of col­
ored or marked ballots may be safely
styled frauds who do not deserve a free
man's vote. Don't vote for a man who
cannot trust you to vote as yeu plq^se.

by the workmen repairing th« bridge un
lil ion late. Tue train was checked suf­
ficiently, however, to save everything but
the engine which balanced over into the

THE OLD SIXTH.
WHITE RIVEK AG-SNCY, Col., Oct. 10.—
The regiment is again scattered. On the
30th of June last, at Snake River, Wyom
ing Territory, the regiment paraded for
muster, every company being present for
the first time in many years some one
said at the time, not since Gettysburg.
We had thought of having the entire reg­
iment together this winter, but on the
2Gtli of last month Col. Huston, with
companies D, F, and H, marched out
of camp bound for Forts Lyon and Gar­
land. As the rear of the column was
passing out of sight, entering the "Big
Canon," Col. Moore remarked, "It will
be a long time before we are all together
again."4 We all actually hated to see
them go, and yet there are many who
would gladly have acted as substitutes.
We are just UOAV having our Indian
summer. It commenced yesterday. It
rained as it only can rain when it is in
earnest in this demoralized section of
country. Tnis game was running as a
soit of "go as you please" when we re­
tired, and this morning our astonished
eyes beheld, when taking the first peep
out o'door, the adjacent high hills and
surrounding country covered with a
mantle of the pure virgin aiticle—beau­
tiful snow, and the game still going on.
Around the camp the mantle soon lost its
purity, and mud was predominant. Some
huge icicles were interesting objects of
contemplation to a few benighted Dako
tians, who were wondering how much of
this thing there would be before winter
fairly commenced. This, as I said be­
fore, is the commencement of our Indian
summer (by authority of the oldest in­
habitant).
AGENT MEEKER'S REMAINS.
The remains of Indian Agent Meeker
have been forwarded to his relatives at
Gieeley, Colorado. At the same time
the body of Lowry, the scout, was taken
to the railroad. His brother came here
from California for the remains and will
take them to the eastern home for chris­
tian burial. Residents of the country
say that if Lowry's advice had been tak­
en, the Milk Creek disaster had never
occurred, but I suppose that -many will
think of this that Hindsight is better than
foresight.
We have nine barrack buildings stand­
ing in their adobe grandeur, without
doors, windows or roofs, the material for
these essentials to habitable adobes hav­
ing not yet arrived. The money for their
purchase was hot available until a late
date, and hence the delay. Meanwhile
the cold nights and snow' storms, which
are available and are furnished without
any requisitions, have developed the la­
tent talent of the boys in keeping them­
selves warm. Passing around and
through the camps, one notices spring­
ing out of the ground, seemingly, all
sorts of hollow 'contrivances, manufac­
tured in maujr instance from discarded
fruit cans. These are the chimneys to
underground shacks, in which' the lads
bid defiance, around a roaring fire, to the
frost king.
GILSON, THE SCOUT.
Chris Gilson, on his last visit, was ac­
companied by an old friend of THE TRI­
BUNE'S one who for many years in Da­
kota resided near the stations of the 6th,
and whom every Dakotain is always
eager to welcome—the same quiet, unob­
trusive gentleman—we are right glad
that Yellowstone Kelly, the famous scout,
is here and is to remain duiing the wid
ter. Many in Bismarck will remember
Chris Gilson's son Jimmy. He is now
quite a noted scout, accompanying his
father on all of his trips, and last winter,
on
account of his youth, easily slipped
into some tight places and picked up in­
formation among the Indian camps that
pater-familias could not himself have
gained.
Col. Moore is now in command of the
camp. Gen. Hazen is not expected until
next month.
Lieut. Ingalls is occupying the Adju­
tant's chair at headquarters, Adjutant
Thompson being temporarily absent en
route to meet his wife, who will spend
the Winter here.
Mrs. Dr. LeCompte has been here some
time, enjoying:witli the Doctor the camp­
ing out on White River and an occasion­
al campaign against the trout,, which, as
I have before" said in your columns,
abound in the river and afford excellent
sport to those who are fond of angling.
Capt. Baker, having resigned the idea
of a leave, is now utilizing his experience
at the Bad Lands cantonment in erecting
a log house for comfortless winter.
Capt. Badger and" other officers are
likewise busily engaged in aichitecture.
You of course know That the 6th are some
on the build.
Geo. llazen is domiciled at the trader's
establishment, and is at home to his
friends at all times. Latch string on the
outside.
Let me ask you to draw it a little mild
when you are writing up Burleigh coun­
ty and adjacent sections. Make those
cabbages a little smaller and the rest of
the vegetables aud cereals a little less
voluminous. You see our stock is very
small, aind ere winter is over we may be
restric'ed in our vegetable diet—tantalus
you know—draw it mild.
One of our most talented musicians in
the regimental band, who was in days of
yore a gay gallant among the fair natives
at Bufoid, happened to be slightly—yes,
slightly, a short time since,, at an evening
serenade—closing his eyes to get his bear­
ings, lie opened them, not on his music,
but on the prominent white "picadilly"
of the band master. Raising his cornet
to his lips, he commenced playing that
collar in his best style. The .result can
be better lina&iued than describqd.

Democratic Points.
The democrats have made some points
on the supporters of the independent tick­
et aud begin to believe they have a com­
plete
walk away on their local ticket.
Until two days ago they were badly firigli
tened but they are getting over that.
Since this is so let the republicans brace
up, and sustaining every man on their
ticket marcii on to victory. Let them bo
true, and if defeat does come let the old
flas still fly. Let the party organization
be perfected at least so that we can go in­
to the next campaign with a united front.
Dakota is a republican territory, it will
soon be a republican state, The next con­
gress and the next president will he re
republican and in order to b3 entitled
even to decent respect wo ought to liayo
in this locality a well organized republi­
can party. Then let every republican b(j
firm. Let. every republican vote be polled
tor
Mr. Pettigrew for Mr. Wallace ajvi
Mr. Wells and the entire republican ticket.
