•. The president has received the na»y de
ficiency bill for his approval. The armv
bill has been amended by the senate, and
yttr goes to the Iffli^Rr 'fi^i^urrebce.
Why is it that the democratic house are
so urgent for a large military force On the
frontier of Texas, and have no regard appa
rency to the vast extent of unprotected
frontier In the northwest threatened by Iu
dians
The interview recently held between a
Committee of republican senators and Pres
dent Hayes regarding the letter's policy in
making appointments resulted in a better
understanding of^the subject, and it Is pre
dicted that the parties will get along more
harmoniously in the future.
The Washington Gaiette of the 11th in
stant has fhis to'Sar of our delegate: Of
the territorial- delegates in congress, the
Hon. Jefferson P. Kidder, of Dakota, is re
garded as the most Influential and'conspicu
OU8. His high legal attainments, readiness
in debate, and personal influence give him
decided advantages, and all that the territo
ry of Dakota can have, it will be sure to get
by his talent and energy."
Already are the forces being arrayed for
the senatorial contest in Ohio. Judging
from the tone of the press of the state and
the opinion af the army of Ohio democrats
in Washington, the contest lies between
Pendleton, Wright, Hurdsnd Allen. Some
of the tatter's friends, however, assert that
he favors Wright^ and that he will not be a
candidate if the chances favor the latter.
"The Press and Dakotaian takes occa
sion to read us a nice little lecture, based
upon our late election," arc the words of
the Vermillion Republican. The Press can
not recall the time when It took occasion to
do anything of the kind. Its remarks con
cerning the necessity for union among re
publicans In old Clay were not Intended in
the slightest degree ss a reflection upon the
course of the Republican. The few lines
were aimplv a suggestion that republican
unity was preferable to division. So far as
the loctl affairs of Clay county or the sup
port'given to any candidates1for office by its
newspapers, are concerned, the Press had
no design of interfering by praise or cen
sure. Just paddle your own canoe, Doc.,
and make an effort to overcome your sensi
tiveness.
M. Gambetta, in his speech at Chateau
Chinon, said more violence and arbitrary
conduct had preoeded the elections of Octo
ber 14 than had been shown during the
whole twenty yean of the execrated Empire.
He was confident that in a few days the
asaemblv, with its 330 republicans, greatly
to be recruited alter the verification of pow
ers, would restore legality and order, and
put an end to the pretensions to keep-in
place, as necessary organs of the administra
tion, men who were from tip first appointed
for a purely politicai object, nowaignally de
feated.^ Had these electiMu been free the
republicans would have counted not 500 but
450. In his estimate he was mistaken in
fact, but he had not foreseen the
frauds

At the term of court just ended, there
was not a contested civil case on the dock
et. When we take Into consideration that
there has been no court In tint county since
last February, we may ssfeiy conclude that
Clay county Is not a rich field for lawyers.
But it speaks well for the people.
John C. Mooney, who was arrested last
March and bound over, for breaking into
the steam mill with the intention of commit
ting a larceny, was sentenced by Judge
Shannon last Monday, to eighteen months
in the state prison at Detroit, Michigan.
The proof shows that he broke into the mill
and took therefrom about six dollars.
At 11:45 this forenoon, one of the severest
shocks of earthquake ever known in the
northwest, was felt in Vermillion The
shock lasted fully one-half minute, and was
so severe as to "pi" type setting in the
galleys in our office. In some houses in
town dishes were thrown down and lamps
broken. No sucli shock has ever been felt
in Dakota before. People up stairs in the
brick block oi Prentice & Newton thought
the bouse was comiBg down, and had time
to ran-down on the sidewalk hefore the
shock was over. Upstairs occupants all
over town were in the streets before tbey
realized what was the matter.
ITEMS.
James Fitzgerald formerly of Dead wood,
now at Tuscaibra, Nev., writes as follows:
"A couple of local sports engaged an Iadian
in a monte game. The game ran along
very quietly, Mr. Indian, apparentlv not
caring which way the game went. Pretty
soon one of the locals turned up as a "lay
out" a five spot and a seven. The Indian
piled UP $2 50 on the five and the deal went
on. The five won: The Indian let the
five' dollars stand until the five won again,
when he took down the winnings. Again
the five won, and the Indian picked up all
of his coin, having woa #12 50 on the deal,
and quit the came, remarking: 'White
man- he dam smart,' at the same time throw
ing down* the other three sevens which
belonged in the deck."
BUCK HILLS NOTES.
Indications of aiining in H13 Black llills
prior to the Custer expedition, are occas
ionally discovered as that region is more
thoroughly explored. An item in the
Times, Deadwood, 10tli ssys: "S. D. Por
ter has discovered upon a tributary to
Spruce gulch, an old drift ten or {twelve
feet deep, which, judging from a blazed
tree standing at the mouth of the drift, and
whose ire can be clearly determined by its
circles, was made in 1865. A blazed trail
leads up from Spruce gulch and was pro
bably msde in the same year, adding one
more to the many indications that the
Hills were visited by sdventurous miners
yesrs ago.
THE BIG HORN REGION A FRAUD.
Black Hills Times Nov. 19th.

company with four others, last night, thor

His company visited every stream and
locality where the precions metal could
reasonable be supposed to exist, and pros
pected in the most thorough manner, but
without receiving any encouragement
whatever. Tbey had a pretty severe time
of it,- following up many a wild goose
chase, the principal -one being to Rotten
Grass creek under the guidsnce of one
Charles Lyon, who claimed to have big
diggings in that locality but which proved
4arrenpf-gold. The party separated, some
proceeding on tbth? Montana mines, some

others still returned to the railroad at

his auditors, most of them, he was delight

he impressed upon the peasants the neces

square paper called a bulletin. Already re
publican progress was most remarkable in
