—Mr. Doddrige, station agent at
lantmie for a year and a half past,
will be made agent at this point, in
place of McKay, resigned.
Certified Abstracts of lot titles
promptly furnished by
mßtf " Hohlett A Stevens.
—Several handsome new residences
will soon be built out on Ferguson and
Hill streets. At least a number of eli
gible sites have been pure based by
some of our most substantial business
men, with a view of erecting a num
ber of dwelling bouses.
—L C. Stevens, local town lot agent
for the Union Pacific railroad compa
ny, sold since Monday morning up to
yesterday noon, one hundred ami nine
teen lots In Cheyenne, aggregating
$23,000. The average price of the lots
sold was about $193.50. Some people,
not a thousand miles away, will turn
up their noses at Cheyenne, neverthe
less but ‘’land” can be purchased
within the limits of their towns in
large tracts at about one dollar ami a
quarter an acre.
The gale of lots continues actively,
and several strangers, we are informed,
are making investments.
—There is gold on ilie north side of
the Platte aud north of Laramie Peak
oa the Labonte, Horse Shfie, and Deer
creek. Men mined on Horse .Shoe in
’64. but the diggings were poor—from
SUOO to $6 0<) a day to the man. The
miners abandoned them and went to
Montana the same year. In ’56 a par
ty of returned Califoruia miners pros
jiected on Deer creek, and reported
$6.00 to SB.OO diggings to be had. At
that time there was no inducement to
them to remain in the country.
We are informed that on the La
bonte a party of miners in ’65 found
quite good prospects on a bar between
tlie road leading to Fort Fctterman
and the Platte, aud that they went to
work to open some claims. But they
.were surprised one morning by a band
of some four or five hundred Cheyenne
warriors, ami several of the party were
killed. The remains of their sluice
boxes and ditches remain to the pres
ent.davL
Would It not be well if the Big Horn
expedition took a good look at this
section of country before crossing the
Platte. Beyond question it is a fine
country —iudepeudent of paying dig
gings there.
Por Sale.—A pair of American
mates, six and eight years old, well
broken to harness and saddle, gentle,

Wadiingtou di?*pitM)cs re|K.*rt that
there is nj much jealousy iu regard
to Interpreters that Secretary Deis no
ie taking uimiurt** t«» secure lhe na*r
vices of parlies totally unknown lo
all the tuciinn* interested, and has
invited a clergyman, who was for
merly a in nations ry among the Sioux
and tainilliar with all dialects, to act
at the general council. There is alno
a woman in town who was a captive
of the Sioux ten years, and author of
a sensational boot descriptive of her
life among them, who will probably
be invited. The Secretary is detei
tniued to have fairness in every re
spect, ao that in the future no com
plaints can bo made. Prof. Marsh
will be invited to be present, and his
allegations will probably be referred
to in the talk with Ked Cloud.
Cheyenne, W. T.,

Editor Cheyenne Leader:
You will do many of your friends

Carlin and Fort D. A. Hassell a great
favor by inserting the following: One
M. M. Marshall has been acting agent
for the Western Ledger Company, of
Marion, Ohio, ami failed to forward
all the money, anti mnny subscribers
are out of both the paper and their
money. The Western Ledger Com
pany have authorized me to say that
those having receipts from Marshall,
if they forward them for proof of hav
ing paid, that they will ln*ar the loss,
and send the paper for one year.
Respect fully,

—Now It is the Omaha lire that is
troubled with “worms” in relation to
the Leader. It was tlie Sentinel
that was first tickled to deal!) nearly,
because some reliable person informed
it that the Leader had “changed
hands.” Then came the Denver New*
with substantially a similar gleeful
statement. But a few days later
it was announced by the same preten
tious pa|»er that we were Col. Steele’s
organ. The lice alludes to us in this
wise:
“ The Cheyenne Leader, which we
regret, talks very much like a subsi
dized organ of the Indian ring.”
If the Bee can, Just as well as not,
give us a good example of how a sub
sidized organ of the Indian ring talks,
we would like to have it do so. A
comparison of the Leader’s talk with
this “ example” will be quite as satis
factory to the renders of tlie Bee as its
slip-shod assertions.
Our Omaha cotemporary feels a lit
tle offended because we ' expressed
| some doubts about the truthfulness of
its published interview with Red
j Cloud and Spotted Tail. We certainly
I did not and do not consider that pub
' fished interview at all reliable. The
I editor of the Bee Interviewed some of
■ tlie squaw men who went to Washing
ton at the same time with Red Cloud,
Spotted Tail and tlie Indian delega
tion, who may have palmed off on
him as coming from Ihe Indian chiefs,
wliat he published. Red Cloud ami'
Spotted Tail are more shrewd and
cunning than the Bee would have
them appear. Whatever their grlcv
, ances were, they determined, before
j leaving the agencies, to pour them
j into no human ears until they readied
Washington. While here they re
fused to say any tiling at all about
them, and would not talk ii|»on the
subject to the representatives of the
Leader and New York Herald—
j recognized as the two leading, most
interprising, fearless and indepen
dent daily pajiers in tlie country—
albeit differing in other respects. The
squaw men, who humbugged the Bee ,
were ready to t>2 interviewed here by
anybody and everybody, but they got
the “go by” from the Leader and
the New York Herald. The Indians
proposed to have their talk with the
President, and with no lessor person
age.
But the Bee fooled a great many
people, notwithstanding its editor was
badly fooled by the squaw men. Per
haps the knowledge ot this fact which
we imparted to the Bee some days
ago, is what mortifies it most.
