ff te 5' is 8fte $aity gretf ana gafeotaian YANKTON DAKOTA. Monday Evening* July 7 1879 E, Stanley Matthews says Foster will win in Ohio, bat the fight will be close. Daring last week's storm at St. Paul fire inches ff nu^MMn^^^^hrars. Three hundred and twenty-seven new 'money-order offices were opened last week. The democratic convention of California has completed its work and adjourned It ^nominated a ticket. I -The attorney general decides that Captain Eads is entitled to $500,000 for the 26:foot channel at the passes. At Vasa, Goodhue county, Minnesota, .seven persons were killed and thirty injurad by the tornado of Wednesday night. According to George H. Pendleton, all talk about coming presidential candidates ,is the most trifling speculation. George fkeeps his month shut. Elk Point, wrenched by a tornado and flooded by a deluge, recovers from its fright in time to find itself made famous in the newspapers of the east under the name of "Elkhorn." The telegraph operator was more cruel than the storm. The Indian department announces that 700 horses have been run off by white men from Red Cloud's agency, and the military authorities cannot interfere on account of the posse comitatus law of last year, al though the stolen horses are driven past Camps Sheridan and Robinson. 1 I Dr. Bird, Indian agent at Poplar river agency, in Montana, has been relieved by N. S. Porter, of Ponca, Nebraska. If Por ter has plenty of nerve he will succeed wbere Bird failed. Without it he had bet ter stay away, as there is more concentrated Indian cussedness at Poplar river than at all the other agencies on the Missouri. The conciliatory policy is a dead failure there. The president remits the sentence of dis missal by court martial upon Captain Joseph Rendelbrock, of the fourth cavalry. He was found guilty of "misbehavior before the ene my, Indians," and "neglect of duty." The court lecommended clemency ou account of the age of the captain, long and creditable service, and the fact that his physical condi tion showed him to be unfit for an active campaign. It is stated in a Washington telegram that Secretary Schurz contemplates spend ing his summer vacation among the Indian agencies. If the secretary will let himself down to the level of ordinary mortals and look at things through the eyes of common sense he will learn something of import ance. But an official viewing the results of his own work is not liable to observe its de fects. Hayt tried it once and became more bull headed than before. The storms of last week, in the states of Iowa and Minnesota, and along the eastern border of Dakota, were equal in severitv to any which have prevailed since the settle ment of this portion of the west. A perfect deluge of water fell, accompanied by heavy gales, tornados and electrical displays. In southern Minnesota and northern Iowa con siderable loss of life is reported and prop erty destruction has been great. Growing crops have also suffered from the pelting of hail and rain and from the far ious force of the wind. J. S. Bingley writes a letter to the Chi cago Times, from Foster City, Dakota, upon the subject of the "rights and wrongs" of the Drifting Goose band of Yanktonaia Sioux. The letter is a reply to the namby pamby report of Captain Bennett to Gen eral Terry, and disproves many of the asser tions contained within that report. The idea that these Indians have any claim to any portion of the James river yalley is one which will be tolerated only by gushing sentimentalists or by corrupt traffickers who have an ax to grind in patting forward the pretended claims of this squad of govern ment paupers. Good sense and honesty do not enter into the effort. These TnHi.n haye no-rights in this locality. They have been permitted by their agents to make a summer camp there during the years of the past when the country was unoccupied by whites. They were given the inch and now propose to take the ell. And it happens that, as usual, there are plenty of feeble minded, or evil minded, pale faced agitators to back up their scheme and cunningly de vise means to displace producing settlers, that their possessions may be held by these semi-barbarons, non-producing wards of the government. The theory that these n. mtdic people need these lands for agricul tural purposes is as wilful a falsehood as waa ever ur^ed upon any department of the government. The Sioux nation already holds, by treaty agreement, 45,000 square miles of Dakota territory, and by executive order fully 10,000 square miles more. The boundaries of their domain are well defined and beyond them no white settlers can en croach. Probably nmety-nine-one-hun dredths of this vast tract ^as been untouched by Indian agricultural implements and will remain so to the end of time. If Drifting Goose and hia people are ambitious to be come grangers, they have an abundance of good soil, all their own beyond any ques tion, upon which to apply the arts of agri culture. And, as this Jim river valley is not their own, but h&s been given over to the uses of civilization, Drifting Goose should not be permitted to there intrude his presence for a single hour. If the govern ment, and those who are misrepresenting facts to it, desire to stir up lively Indian mass, th«y have hit upon jltot the means (w iff acc^jlplishipjgnt. Jgn river must flow flniexed to tho Missouri. Settlers have'oc ied ill valley akd if is too latein the to talk aboui" displacing them fcr th^ benefit of worthless band of Indians. BLACK HILLS NOTES.

Bennett, Dakota's cougres' sional delegate, left the brigadier congress last Thursday, and reached this city on Sat urday. He is looking remarkably well, and turns the scales at about 200 lbs. It is no crime in a man of his ability and character that he house those qualities in a handsome figure. Bennett has become a man of fine presence. He made a brief talk to the soger boys Saturday p. m., speaking with his old time grace and power reinforced, and kin dled in the hearers the burning regret that Washington county has lost forever a man of his calibre. He goes with his family to his home the middle of the week. The Sole Survivor. Black Hills News. Among the notables at Fort Mead the famous horse "Comanche," the only sur vivor of the Custer fight. This is the horse, it will be remembered, that was rid den in the battle of the Little Big Horn by Col. Keogh. He was found on the battle field after the Indians had retreated, wound ed in five places. He was tenderly nursed, put on a steamer, and brought to Fort Lin coin. There, by good care, he entirely reT covered. By a regimental order of General Sturgis he is now never ridden, but led with the regiment at all mounted ceremonies, draped in the deepest mourning. He has stood the trip from Lincoln nicely, and is as fat as a seal. Though about fourteen years old he seems good for ten more. GOODS CAVALIER'S!
