border should become threatening. In any
event the post should be established and
buildings erected ready for the garrison at
any time, as an imperative mid-winter

Re-Published From the Official Laws.
(The Quartz Law of Montana enacted
last winter differs materially in important
respects from that heretofore existing. In
response to a request and as a matter of
general interest, we herewith give the law
as it now exists. This differs so materially
from the law of the Extra Session that all
quartz-owners should carefully study and
preserve it. Those interests are now be
coming too important to imperil by failure
to comply with the statutes.-En. N. N.
Be it enacted by the Legislative Assembly
of the Territory of Montana :
Section 1. Any person or persons who
shall hereafter discover any mining claim
upon any vein or lode bearing gold, silver,
cinnabar, lead, tin, copper, or other valua
ble deposits, shall, within twenty days
thereafter, make and tile for record in the
office of the recorder of the county in
which said discovery is made, a declaratory
statement thereof in writing, on oath, be

minister oaths, describing such claim in the
manner provided by laws of the United
Sec. 2. q'hat in order to entitle any per
son or persons to record in the county re
corder's office of the proper county, any
lead, lode, or ledge, there shall first be dis
covered on said lead, lode or ledge, a vein
or crevice of quartz, or ore with at least
one well defined wall.
Sec. 3. Claims on any lead, lode or ledge,
bearing gold, silver, cinnabar, lead, tin,
copper, or other valuable deposits hereafter
discovered, shall consist of not more than
fifteen hundred linear feet along said lead,
lode or ledge, and not more than three hun
dred feet and not less than twenty-five feet
on each side from the center of said lead,
lode, or ledge, for working purposes. Pro
sided, that the provisions of this act shall
not be so construed as to include claims re
corded prior to the passage of said act.
Sec. 4. All lode claims heretofore dis
covered and recorded pursuant to the law,
and the possessory title to which shall have
been preserved according to law, shall enti
tle the owner or owners thereof to surface
ground along the course of the vein three
hundred feet on each side from the center
of said vein: Provided, that such width
shall not be permitted to interfere with
any vested or possessory rights of any per
son or persons, corporation or corporations,
whic have intervened and have been pre
served to the time of the taking effect of
this act, but parties desiring to avail them

BOZEM.N.A, July 8, 1876.
The chronic state of our telegraph linm
prevented despatch to you of the military
news. and by the time this will reach yoi
you will have had the h' e details of the
Custer disaster from jou: rialistic sources.
Upon the scene of the disaster was oppor
tune, as all correspondence from the flelc
agrees in the assertion that the remnant of
the Custer command was surrounded anc
must have been slaughtered within one oi
two days.
Presented a terrible sight. The valley foi
two miles was littered with the bodies of
mutilated men and the carcasses of dead
horses, while one place of sepulture holds
the remains of 204 of the army of the
United States.
Are variously estimated from 350 to 450
but, of course, exact figures can result only
from the official report yet to be made.
Command is supposed to be now at Fort
Pease, but opinions differ regarding the
whereabouts of Crook. In military circles
here it is thought Crook would not leave
Fetterman until the 10th inst., and in that
idea two Crow Scouts have been sent to him
across the country to Fetterman.
Was a magazine of supplies--axes by the
hundred, fry-pans by the wagon-load, wired
in half-dozens as they had loft the factory,
blankets by the bale, skins, meats, etc., in
great quantities, all of which were destroy
ed by Gen. Gibbon.
Followed the massacre. Pockets were cut
out and rifled, uniforms despoiled of orna
ment, and the most horrible outrages were
committed upon the braveo dead of the most
sanguinary field in the history of Indian
warfare. Heads were found strung by
thongs from the ears and hanging upon
stakes, and scores of bodies, first stripped,
were slashed and drawn and quartered in a
manner calculated to strike terror to the
soul of a Cannibal.
Was evidently one of close quarters-per
haps one of surprise. White and Indian
must have fought hand to hand, and once,
it is related, the savages cut the troops
from their horses as the latter were pressed
into the close quarters of the narrow ra
Transpired during the strugglo - bloody
evidences of which remained upon the field
upon the arrival of Gibbon. One letter
states that when complete slaughter seemed
unavoidable, and the yelling horde of sav
ago miscreants pressed upon the remnant
of ]enou's gallant command, the jaded,
thirsty, driven men became unnerved and
sought shelter behind dead comrades and
dying horses. Reno rushed among them,
beseeching courage and struggle to the last,
but it availed nothing until two Sioux
rushed past on horse back, dragging beo
tween them, his brains dashing out upon
the rocks, one poor fellow who was thus
dying for his country and the peace policy
a death of untold horror. " That is your
fate!" screamed Reno, and with another
hope of life the despairing baud rallied and
saved themselves for rescue by the advance
of Gibbon.
May have exhausted itself with the troops,
and perhaps with the Indians as well, as but
little was found upon the bodies of the
former, and as the latter, toward the last,
showered their arrows upon Reno. The
ground was paved with shells, showing a
tremendous expenditure of ammunition,
yet, as the Indians carried off many guns in
their retreat, they may have robbed the
dead of cartridges, as well.
May now be lengthened. We have thought
our troops would return by the last of the
present month, but tlhe situation may
ch:tnge plans. A longer, perhaps a winter
caitxpaign may, as some think, be foreshad
owed in the order to retain the new Ellis
horses at Fort Shaw when they reach that
post after landing at Benton. Surely, it
cannot be the government will now; restrain
its hand until a telling blow be struck the
brutes whose success is a disgrace to the
We here await, not without apprehension,
news trom both Gibbon and Crook. Were
it the Sioux plan to attack and destroy the
commands in detail, Gibbon would not have
been permitted to escape untried in any de
sire to meet Crook. However, the Indians
may have been badly cut up by Custer not
withstanding the annihilation of his com
mand. So far as that unfortunate officer is
concerned, it is yet too early to criticise his
action unkindly, as the history of his attack
may yet prove him guiltless of unwise
haste and more desire to secure all the glory
of a decided battle defeat in which brought
such disaster upon the flower of the army.
Late letters from this bonanza (?) discour
age anti-Montanians somnownat. "Gulches
are taken up," 'Indians prevent prospect
pecting," "I can't advise my friends to
come just yet," "Wait until spring,"
"Some claims are rich; a few are very rich;
many pay only wages." etc., etc.
The Courier, Taylor, reports that near
Fort C. F. Smith he came upon a camp but
just deserted. The fire was hardly out,
bread was still on the coals, coffee in the
cups-all indicating a hasty retreat from
Indians and abandonment of bag and bag
Evidence is conclusive in favor of delay
at least until spring, and it is hardly prob
able many more will leave here, unless, in
deed, a decided change occurs in the situa
Those who, sick of Montana, think of
emigrating to the Hills, should study over
the old saying about swappinghorses while

IIELE!A, July 13.--Governor Potts re

WASHINGTON, D. C., July 8.
To Governor B. F. Potts, Helena, Montane
Territory :
Your telegram of the 5th offering the ser
vices of a thousand volunteers for active
duty against the Indians was received yes

have no doubt that Montana troops would
do good service; but at present there is no
authority of law for accepting them.

It is the duty of all persons before start

they can reach their destination with the
least trouble, and if there are two or more
roads leading to the same point, to decide
which is the safest and pleasantest to travel.
We take pleasure in stating, that the
the oldest, and several miles the shortest,
route between Omaha and Chicago. With
in the past two years the road bed has been
put in admirable condition, and alhnost the
entire line has been relaid with steel rails.
The Depot in Chicago is centrally located,
and as their trains arrive there thirty min
utes in advance of all other lines, passengers
can always be sure of making Eastern con
nections. For all points in Northern and
North-Eastern Iowa, you should purchase
tickets via Marshall, Cedar Rapids or Clin
ton. For points in Northern Illinois or
Wisconsin, via Fulton; and if you are going
to Chicago or East, you should, by all
means, purchase your tickets by the Old
Pioneer Route
lhc Chicago dC" North-WPestern.
You will find on all through trains Pull
man Sleepers, new and magnificient Day
Coaches, and the best smoking and Second
Class Cars now on any road in the United
