The President has approved the bill
authorizing the Kansas & Arkansas Valley
railway company to build a line f of
road through the Territory from Arkan
sas City to Fort Smith.
Grading on tho southern Kansas rail
road from Kiowa has been completed
nearly as far as Fort Supply. The grade
for the Santa Fe extension from Arkanuac
City lias been completed as far south ac

about fifty miles east of here.

Probably no people in the country
wore more delighted at the showers' of
ram of the past week than these Indians,
although they received a small share,
when the heavy rainfall in the surround

came just in time to avert the failure f of
a corn crop.

close friend of Secretary Lamar, speaking
of Oklahoma he says : "I do not think

A dispatch from 231 Paso, Texas, bearing
date of the 5th inst., says : uThc troops
stationed at Fort Bliss have received' or
ders from Gon'l Miles to immediately
move to a point in Arizona to aid in the
prosecution of the war against the
Apaches. The troops are being lightly
supplied for a long march, but large
.amounts of amunition, provisions and
medicines arc being moved in the same
direction, to be used if necessary."
One of the most important stock saics,
for some time was the purchase of the!T5
ranch on tho ChorokecStrip by E. Torrey
& Son. Tho herd numbers several thous-.
and head, and the price paid has not been
made public. The ranch was owned by
the Texas Land & Cattle Co., and the sale
to the Torieys consists of thr ranches,
range and entire stock. Win. voiioe will
have charge of the outfit for the Torreys.
For several years a high mound south
of tho Ohio live stock ranch, has attract
ed visitors to examine what they suppos
ed to bo an old mine, judging from tho
great amount of stone thrown up on the
edge of tho hill. A number of prospect
ors have visited the place and examined
sunken holes, but no trace of metal could
be found, and the general Impression was
that it was an abandoned mine of a cen
tury ago. Our informant being more
eager than any of the rest, Baaue inquiry
