Courtwaa called to order by the^r-lieritf-.
Docketread and wineaaea called;^after which the United States and Ter^^ritorial prisoners were arraigned and a^day set for them to appear and plead.
Thefirst case was that of Clarence^E. Kentley vs. Board of Commission^^ers of Custer County. This is a dam^^age suit for injuries received by plain^^tiff Hently by falling from a sidewalk^in front of the Opera House, w hile in^course of construction last (September.^The case was argued on demurrer to^coinplaiut and taken under advise^^ment by the judge.
At10:30 o'clock the United States^Kiaiid jury came in and made a report.^They again appeared in the afiernoun^at L':4-i o'clook with their report and^asketl to be discharged,.whereupon the^judge in a few well chosen remarks^thanked them for the expedition tbev^had made and discharged them. Their^report is as follows:
UxitkdStates (Jkami Ji ry i^Hooms, Miles City, Feb. 1!^, Ittk f^To the Hon. Charles K. Pollard, Judge
ofthe Firat Judicial District Court
Thegrand jury drawn, selected and^empanneled at the February term^188b' of the United States district court^held at Miles City for the investiga^^tion and inquiry into crimes and of^^fenses committed against the constitu^^tion and laws of United States would^most respectfully report that they^have examined into nine different^cases brought to their notice, and^have ignored the charges in five cases,^and have duly fouud and presented^true bills of indictment in four cases,^and that these are the only cases^brought to the knowledge of the^United States grand jury, or of which^they have been able to secure evidence.
Andthe jury beg to acknowledge^their indebtedness to the court and its^different officers far their efforts to aid^and assist us in the discharge of our^duties.
Andwe take' this occasion to pub^^licly express our high appreciation of^the presiding judge of this court as to^his ab'lity as a judge in dispatching^and disposing of the business of the^court and we commend him to all^honorable citizens as being in our^opiuion an able, upright and expedi^^ent judge, and for the kind and cour^^teous treatment we have received at^the hands of the court we extend our^thanks, and now having performed^the duties devolving upon us, am)^having completed our labor, we ask to^be discharged. Henry A. Pease,^Foreman of United States Grand Jury.
Thecase of Don K. Dolpb, et al.,^was then argued on a demurrer to the^indictment, and the judge, after hear^^ing the arguments of counsel, decided^that the indlctmeut was good and^ordered that the prisoners. Don K.^Dolpb and George Wiswell, he brought^into court aud plead. They pleaded^not guilty and the case was set for^trial Tuesday, February 23rd. Dolpb^and Wiswell are indicted for bolding-^up the Deadwood stage this winter^near this city.

OnTuesday last the President with- I^drew uuioug other nominations for 1^promotion of army officers that of^Major Lewis Merrill, ot Mm Seventh^cavalry, nominated for promotion to I^tlie lieutenant colonelcy ef the F.ighlli :^cavalry vii-e Sweitzer nominated for^the coloiielry of ihe of the same regi^^ment. This action of the President is^owing to the retirement of ^ ol. Hatch, i^Kighth cavalry, practically settling a^very important question in military |^promotions. The President, in effect, I^maintains that an officer who has been^incapacitated for active service, though^not yet retired, is not competent to fill |^a higher position than the one for^which he has beeu fouud disqualified.^The promotion upon which the ques^^tion hinged was that of Major Merrill.^Had Major Merrill been promoted he^would soon have been retired with the^increased rank and pay of lieutenant^colonel. As the case now stands he^will be retired as major and the next^major below him, Maj. John Misener,^Fourth cavalry, will receive the pro^^motion. The withdrawal by the Pres^^ident of the nomination of Major^Merrill has caused surprise in mili^^tary circles because of the novelty^of the proceeding. About three^months ago Major Merrill was^found physically disqualified for^further service by a retiring board.^He was the senior major. Col. Hatch^was to he retired for age In January.^The usual custom in such cases was^followed. The sick leave of Merrill^was extended so as to permit him to^be promoted to the rank of lieutenant^colonel, after which he was to be re^^tired on that rank. Ihe President^lias taken the position that an officer^found disqualified to perform tlie^duties of present rauk cannot be fit to^perform those of a higher rank. While^this is logical, it eonipletcly reverses^the former practice, and as there are a^number of officers in (he same condi-^dition as Major Merrill, the action has^created consternation among those^who have been recommended for re^^tiring. Two officers were recently^promoted who were found incapaci^^tated for service^Capt. Whitney,^Eleventh infantry, and Capt. Bellas,^Fourth cavalry. Both were condemn^^ed several years ago when holding the^rank of first lieutenant, yet both were^made captains last year.

Theoccasional wutHip from the Ca^^nadian Indians is believed by leading^Winuipeg people to be exaggerated^by the traders and contractors that^profited by the Kiel reliellion. The^Northwest territory is well protected^and it is not believed that the dis^^turbances will be worthy of note.
