THE YELLOWSTONE RIVER
rrri|ktl»| Boating Mattera-The
Correspondence Bismarck Tribune.
Fort Buford, D. Tt Aug. 13, 1878.—'The
near approach of the close of navigation in
the Yellows tone,
the amount of freight jit to
go forward has caused the depot quarter
muter here, Major E. B. Kirk, to make
special contracts with some of the outside'
boats ia order to get the freight up if possi
The steamers Gen. Terry and Peninah on
the 11th and the Terry on the I2tb, have
loaded for Fort Keogh and left to-day. The
Batchelor also got away to-day. The Pe
ninah has 140 Ions, the Terry about 100,
and the Batcheler added some 80 tons of
government freight They get special rates
under the contract mentioned above, die
figures being $1 for 100 pounds for 100
miles or say $1,94 per 100 pounds from here
The boats of the Kounls line will be Al
lowed to run on their contract as long as
they wish. The contract expires on the 15th
in*., but as they lost sometime this summer
when the government had no freight for
them at this point, they will be allowed to
load af er the 15tn if they wish at contract
There is vome 500,000 pound4 of freight
now at the lauding to go up the Yellow
stone, and in a conversation with Mr. Spahr,
chief clerk of the quartermaster's depart
ment here, I was informed that probably 1,
1,000,000 pounds of additional freight
would arrive this fall. Of course
it is net expected that this freight will be
forwarded by boat and therefore a contract
has been effected for wagon transportation
between Forts Buford and Keogh. Messrs.
Broadwater, Hubbell & Co. of Montana,
have this contract, the rate being $1.40 per
It was thought last year that a large ship
ping business was done at this post by the
quartermaster's department but the figures
this year will be much larger.
During the fiscal year 1877-78 there was
shipped upward of ten million pounds of
freight, and already the present season the
same amount has been shipped by the quar
termaster with a large amount yet on hand.
The steamer F. Y. Batchelor arrived here
Maj. Walker and Sig. Hanauer were
king a look at Buford to-day and left on the
Batchelor for the Yellowstone. Mr. Jos.
Leightou, of the firm of Leighton & Jordan,
post traders here, passed up on the B. to
Ft. Keogh on a business trip.
Lieut. roes beck, adjutant of the 6th infiy.
who has recently returned from leave of
absence, goes to Keogh soon, having been
detailed as judge advocate of a general
court martial which commences at that post
Lieut. R. F. Jacob, Jr., is absent on de
tached service commanding detachment re
cruits en route to the 11th infantrv at Custer.
HOW THEY ACCOMPLISHED IT.
Some interesting details, told in a new
form, have just been furnished the Leaven
worth Tiroes by one of the train men who
was on board the recently robbed express
train on the Kansas City, SI. Joseph snd
Council Bluffs road. "After the robbers
had stowed the money away in the sack,"
be ssys, "and had risen to their feet, the
leader of the party turned to the conductor
and jgave the laconic command, 'Stop the
train.' The conductor then reachcd tor the
bell-rope snd gave the signal. For some
reason the train did not at. once reduce its
speed, so one of the robbers msde a jump
at the bell-rope, bat, being a short man, he
did not succeed in reaching it. Then said
the conductor, 'There is no use in your
doing thst The train will stop in a min
ute.' While be was speaking the speed of
the train commenced to slacken, and it
soon came to a standstill almost abruptly.
The robbers then commenced to back out
of the door of the car, still covering the
train men with their revolvers. The lea
der told the conductor to come out on the
platform and the-cohductor did, stiH hold
ing up his hsnds. All the men, with the
exception of the iesder, got off the pisiform
snd stood in a group alongside the track
and just in front of the men on the platform.
The conductowas now under cover of the
pistols of the entire parly. The lesder said
to the conductor: "You go ahead now."
The conductor pulled the bell rope and
the train started on its way. the men beside
the track following the cars for tew feet
iuth their, revolvers still pointed towsrd
