The case of the Citizens' state bank ugalnst
Abbott , which has become familiarly known
us the cattle case , has been heard from again.
A telegram was received yesterday stating
that the supreme court had reversed the de
cision of the lower court. This Is a victory
for the bank , and as It Involves about ? 10,000
the bank ofllcials are naturally elated. The
controversy was over a largo number of cat
tle which the bank claimed by virtue of a
chattel mortgage given by ono Green-
meyer. Abbott claimed that the cat
tle wore really his , nnd that Green-
meyer was simply handling them for htm.
In the lower court , Judge Loofbourow , pro-
Hiding , Abbott secured a Judgment of $10,000
ngnlnst thu bank , but now the supreme court
upsotn it.
Mr. Hannan , the cashier of the Citizen's
bank , and who Is the active manager of Its
affairs , Is to bo congratulated on this further
proof of Ills ability and energy. The Inter-
cHts of the bank are being zealously guarded
by him , as well as being pushed Into a
rapid and healthy growth , ills tlnal victory
in the supreme court more than atones for thu
scorning defeat of his case In the lower court.

A Double Train Load of Buckeye Bimlers
and Mowers ,
A Daylight Klin ami n Continuous
Ovation I'Yom Akron , O. , to lllalr ,
Nel ) . Autlinnii , .Miller & | Co'H
The second grand demonstration -that has
attracted national attention to the Buckeye
people this season was concluded at Blair ,
Neb. , yesterday afternoon at B o'clock. 'J 1ml
hour marked the arrival at Its destination of
the second special train of thirty ears , each
loaded to Its limit with Buckeye binders and
mowers , that came directly through from the
factory at Akron , O. , into this territory.
Last Saturday the Chicago , Bur
lington & Qulncy carried the hon
ors , nnd every platform nt every sta
tion anil every crossing In the country
was thronged by people to witness the novel
sight. Vesterday was Northwestern day and
the same enthusiasm tlmt marked the pro
gress of the "Q's" train across the great states
of Iowa and Illinois , accompanied the North-
western's effort. The railroad officials got up
a handsome tlmo card , giving the exact second
end the special .would arrive at each station
from Chicago to Blair. On the second page
was a line engraving of the train as it ap
peared , , and beneath it wns this
generous tribute to the worth of
the machine that has climbed up to
and perpetually fortllled itself In the
esteem of the farmers and grain producers of
the world : "Another special train , loaded
with Bmiri : : Mowr.us and HINDI : ! ! ? , and
decked with bright Hags and beautiful ban
ners , Is now pushing its way rapidly across
the country to supply the demands of the toil
ing agriculturists of the west , with the Im
plements of peace , by the use of which the
great desert places have been made to blos
som as the rose. It is not strange that the
name Bccunvi : should be so familiar to the
farming world , and that it really needs no in
troduction to tlio communities through which
this mammoth train passes ; for , not only In
America , but in almost all climes , and in
every civili/.ed nation under the sun , the
musical click of tlitr BITKHVU is heard , the
records showing that more of these famous
machines have been built and sold than any
other make. The Buckeye Is at homo and
abroad the acknowledged standard of the
world. Whatever others may do , tlio Buck
eye always leads , and it will bo worth going
miles to see this brilliantly dcconncd special
train. Beautiful souvenirs will bo distributed
along the route , and all will bo rewarded by
the evidences of the enterprise which eharae-
terl/es the greatest harvesting machine man
ufacturers on earth. "
Tlio train was decorated in the same gen
eral style as that brought , out by the "Q , "
and like It made a dayliuht run from Akron
to its destination. Tlio decorations com
prised thousands of yards of streamers and
bunting. Kach car wits literally armored
with shield shaped mirrors , above which was
the head and antlers of a royal buck , the
trade mark of the Buckeye. The efforts of
souvenir hunters to get something useful as
well as handsome to remind them of the occa
sion led to a general onslaught upon the cars
whenever the train stopped , and any imple
ment that could bo used was brought into
requisition to pry off these mirrors. There
were over ' . ' .iVW of them when tlio train
started , and but very few on the cars when
it passed through Missouri Valley , and it is
fair to presume that there arc a thousand or
two more farmer. ! who have Buckeye mirrors
as well as Buckeye mowers and binders , and
congratulating themselves that the mirrors
must bo good and durable because they are
The train ran from Chicago as a special
limited , and had the same right of way over
all other trains that the splendid limited
passenger trains have on that road , Tlie
Northwestern officials showed it the same
distinguished consideration that the Burling
ton people did the first special , and accom
panied it over each division. It was under
the general charge of Air. K C. Jones , presi
dent of tlio Union freight line , who accom
panied it from Akron. From Boone to Blair
the train ran in two sections. Tills was _
necessary for the reason that a portion of its
cars were destined for Iowa points , in L. A.
Dcvino's territory , while the remainder went
directly into Nebraska , the territory of O. P.
McKesson , all of which is managed from the
general ofllces in Council Blutts. They com
menced dropping cars at Ames , la. , and at
Carroll a portion of one section was switched
on the North western's northern Iowa feeders.
The crowds attracted by the train at every
station from Boone to Blair were very great
and among the crowds wore hundreds of
farmers , who left tlio fields to greet their
friend the Buckeyes in this royal pageant.
This will bo tlio last special train
the Buckeye people will send out
this year. The season Is so far
advanced and the farmers are so impatient to
get their machines that they will not brook
the delay necessary to make up specials and
bring them out by daylight , fjmeo this train
was gotten up , Air. Alclvesson says his Ne
braska orders would more tlion make another
train of similar length. This is the best in
dication that the Buckeyes are not coming
west to 1111 up warehouses but to go into the
fields as soon : is the growing harvest de
mands their presence.

Some Uniform Statements.
A howl is going up from the police force
regarding their nice , now uniforms that is ,
they were new about a mouth ago , and were
supposed to bo nice at the time they were
purchased , The uniforms , which cost from
S2ii to $ 'M apiece , were purchased of L. Bled-
crmau , and thereby hangs a tale. Air. Bicd-
erman says that ho furnished the uniforms at
a very little above cost , and did not make
but a dollar on each one. The men say that
the material is shoddy , and that at the price
paid the profits should have amounted to at
least 5 , " per cent. But this is immaterial , as
the method of the purchase , as alleged by
the men , calls for the first attention.
Several of the men stuto that they were
ordered by the chief to get their uniforms at
Biederman's as he had made arrangements to
this effect. It is alleged that one of the men
demurred to this , but the chief informed him
tlmt "If ho didn't get his clothes there ho
wouldn't get a chance to wear them. " The
argument was convincing and Air. Bieder-
inan secured the order.
Tills is the story told by several of the men ,
but ono was found who denied it and stated
that ho never received any such orders , but
that , on the contrary , the chief told him to
get his clothes where ho pleased , only ho
wanted them all as nearly alike as possible.
All of the men said that they were referred
to Bicderinan , and some .declared that they
were ordered to patroui/d him.
Air. BiediTinan declares that he told every
man who came to him that ho did not have to
get his clothes there unless ho wanted to ,
and some of the men declare with equal
vehemence that ho did not tell them anything
of the kind.
The sum and substance of the men's grief
is that their uniforms arc not what they ex
pected them to be , and they kick because they
were compelled to put up from * 2J ( to f'11 for a
uniform that is not as good as the mem
bers of the old force purchased for 22.
They say that the cloth Is turning white
under the bir tons and belt , and that the suu
has already faded them badly. It makes
them feel sore to think that there will soon
bo a necessity for another outlay , as the
goods are not wearing as well as they might.
It is further alleged that the understanding
was that the men could have two mpntlis in
which to pay for their clothes , half each
month , but that as soon as they were made
Air. Bledcrman demanded cash , and when
they could not pay Insisted on having an
order on the city , which the men eventually
gave him.
All went well until pay day , when Air.
Bledcrman found that the city warrants were
not quite worth 100 cents on the dollar , and
he then went to the men and Insisted that
they take back their order and pay him the
cash , or ho would lose $2.t > 0 on each uniform.
Ho kicked and kicked , and finally effected
the exchange , except in ono or two cases.
Air. Btederinan states that the men's story
regarding the payment Is correct , except that
nothing was haul about Hiving them two
months in which to pay for their clothes.
Ho said that Sergeant bally was the first ono
to patronize him , and the others came be-
cmiso ho gave the sergeant a good ill and
they liked the looks of his clothes ,
There Is a general dental of the patrolmen's
stories at headquarters , and It is alleged that
some of the men have drawl i the long bow to
an Inexcusable degree. The chief also denies
the other stories to the effect that communi
cations from outsldo towns relative to fugi
tives from Justice have been kept from the
men , but states tlmt on the contrary they nro
always on file whore the men or the general
publfo can Inspect them. Ho attributes the
whole dlniculty to a few of his men who want
more liberty than Is accorded under the strict
rules governing the department.

around the curve and .a head-end collision
was unax'oidable. Tlie'limited was running
about fifty miles an hour , but Engineer Jack
Kami Immediately 'reversed his engine and
turned on the nlr. There was only a dis
tance of a few car lengths between the trains
when the Impending danger was discovered ,
but the speed had been reduced to about fif
teen miles an hour when the collision oc-
cu rred.
Woodward and Kami lumped lust before
they struck. Woodward landed In a mud
hole , through which ho rolled for several
yards , but escaped uninjured. The engineer
was not so fortunate , breaking his leg Just

bone protruding through the llcsh. Postal
Clerk Keen was thrown against the mailing

BKK.J It Is singular , but nevertheless a fact
tlmt a decade had passed before the merits o
some of the best mining camps on this contt
nent came Into prominence , as Instanced It
the cases of Colorado , Montana and Idaho.
While the people of the Black Hills for the
past fourteen years have always had mi
limited confidence In their vast resources , yet
capital has been skcptlcaloand loth to take
hold , except In the case of the Homestakeam
Caledonia , until very recently. The formei
has been in operation for over eleven yours ,
and the results show what a splendid prop
erty it Is , having paid dividends to the stock
holders to thu amount of $ liVHTr , ) > 0 up to
March 2."i lu t. A brief history of this mag
nificent property may not bo uninteresting to
the readers of this article.
It was purchased in the hitter days of 1S77
by lllggins , Tfcvis it Hearst of California.
George Hearst , now United States senator
from California , gave the property a personal
and thorough examination before the pur
chase. They incorporated and erected mi
eighty stamp mill which commenced drop
ping Us stamps on July 12 , IS7S. The results
of the mill were t > o llattering , albeit the ex
pense 01 us consiriicucn was enormous , tlio
machinery being manufactured in San Fran
cisco and .shipped from there via Cheyenne
to Lead City by freight teams , that It was
followed by. another , the Ciolden Star 120
stamp mill , the following year. Others have
been added to their properties and
they are now dropping at this writing
(120 ( stamps with ore enough in sight to last
for years. A mining camp that has in sight
seemingly inexhaustible bodies of ore contin
uously furnishing this number of stamps to
one companv alone must have some merit.
There are plenty of other properties adjoin
ing the Homc.stako group and In close proxi
mity thereto , that have been lying idle for
years for want of capital to develop and make
them producers , and why they have not nt-
tiMctod capital in the past seems , to say the
least , surprising. The Caledonia , owned by
another California company on the same beit
of ore. while laboring under tlio bad manage
ment of former superintendents until the ap
pointment of General T. L. Skinner , its
present eflleient manager , Is now on
the list of dividend paying mines
and has paid up to duto $1-10,000.
That lie deserves credit for bringing the
property out of chaos and placing it on a
dividend-paying basis goes without saying.
The ore body on the 07. ) foot level shows no
sign of diminishing. Other properties in the
same vicinity have been paying small divi
dends with a small number of stamps as com
pared with thellomestake or Caledonia. Tills
is notablv true of the Pluina ( forty stamps )
and Monitor ( twenty stamps ) . Tllose , how
ever , arc only occasional , ami cannot bo
classed as dividend paying mines. The secret
of success on this low grade belt is found in
the heavy production of the Homostako and
Caledonia , and is illustrated in the history of
every great mine in the world. The belt
gold deposits are without a parallel in the
history of tlio mining world. The Homo-
stake company control only a limited
amount of the ground containing thcso
deposits. The rocks containing those ores
outcrop to the surface in many places south
of Lead City , where the belt mines are situ
ated. Their geological relations were care
fully worked out by the state geological
survey under Dean Carpenter of tlio school
of mines , a few years ago. and possiblv'
through his report the officials of the Chicago
cage , Burlington it Quincy railroad were at
tracted , and concluded to build to Deadwood.
However that may be , that line parallels this
belt outcrop its entire length through the
Black Hills.
But the most available ores around which
public interest now centers , and of which
the outside world knows comparatively
nothing , are the refractory ores of Ruby
Basin , Bald mountain , Blacktail and Terry's
Peak , all in close proximity to this city.
These bodies lie in horizontal deposits and
require no hoisting works , pumps , etc. ,
and but few timbers , and none of
the expensive appliances so usual
in mining. They are as it were upon the
surface , and can bo mined so Cheaply that
the proceeds will not be swallowed up in ex
pensive mining material. These are the
ones that are building the smelters and ehlori-
nation works whose known and explored
extent is greater in area than any heretofore
ever known to the. mining world. They are
almost inexhaustible.
The term refractory in connection with
these ores is a misnomer. They yield their
precious contents readily to any sensible pro
cess. For these carrying only gold any
modification of Planner's chlorine process
will answer. For the others cither smelting
with lead , or with copper or iron will answer.
They can also bo treated by amalgamation ,
or by lixeviatlon. But all tilings considered
Matte smelting us practiced for years
in Germany , or at Argo , Colo. .
is the coming process for. these ores.
The fluxes required are hero In endless quan
tities , as is also lime , pyMtes of iron , etc. , for
nature , when depositing the ore , generously
supplied this region with all the appliances
for its reduction.
It is not the writer's desire , certainly not
his intention , to boom any property or state
anything in this correspondence but plain
facts about a country whose resources are as
boundless us' the ocean and as permanent as
its rocked ribbed shore , and destined to bo
In the near future one of the foremost mining
camps in the world. The figures given above
in regard to the dividends paid to date can
easily ho verified by reference to any responsible
siblo mining Journals published in the Cnited
States. Capitalists can easily see that tin ?
contracts recently let , and the pushing of two
of the greatest trunk lines in the west to
Deadwood , vitlio Chicago , Burlington it
Quincy and the Chicago it Northwestern
railways , which will bo completed the com
ing fall and early winter , -show that these
roads know very well what they are about ,
and are perfectly familiar with the vast re
sources of Lawrence county.
The former line runs through the very cen
ter of the Black Hills , through a series of
parks , valleys and woodlands whoso beauty is
distinguished everywhere , and of a nature
known in no other land , stretching to the hot
springs at tbo southern extremity of the
Hills , whoso waters have been named by a
distinguished writer "tho Carlsbad of Amer
ica , " on account of the wonderful curative
qualities of their waters , Harney , Custer ,
Terry , Bald mauntain , the while cliffs of
Deadwood and other less prominent peaks are
seen plainly from this line , making it ono of
the most picturesque routes in America.
Custer City , the oldest town in the
Black Hills , located where tlio gallant
cavalryman bivouaced in ISM , is situated on
tlio Chicago , Burlington it Qniney. I n
Hill City also the H. 1' . F. M. .t M. Co. Is
carrying on Its gigantic operations. Millions
of lOngllHh capital Is invested in tin. Tlio
magnitude of thoho properties need scarcely
be mentioned in this article , as the world now
is well satisfied of their existence. Albeit
blackmailers at home and enemies abroad
have tried to crush this magnillcent industry ,
notwithstanding the fact that it was ex
amined and fully endorsed by the greatest
mining experts in the world anil by United
States Senator Moody and Congressman
Amos J. Cummings of New York.
Gregory Is another brisk little town situ
ated on this line and recently brought Into ,
existence by the erection of a sixty stump
Huntlngton mill on Little Rapid creek to
oiiorato the ore from the Montana gioup
of mines. The mill has lust commenced
opo'ation and will soon add to the bullion
product of the Hills. It is a close corporation.
None of the block is , or has been offered for
sale , The owners are Governor I. degory
Smith and George F. Smith of St. Alb.mti ,
" "
Vermont' , ami""John V. Lewis of Boston.
The Chicago it Northwestern railway runs
along the eastern foot hills , through valleys ,
table lands and plateaus. The challenging
notes of the rival locomotives can faintly bo
heard for a distance of IK ) miles until their
imlvid in Deadwood. The towns situated
along the line are Buffalo Gap , Hermusa ,
Rapid City , Black Hawk , Piedmont , T ilford ,
Sturgis ami White wood. The latter is 10
miles below this city. A tunnel 1,300 feet
long Is now under construction.

seat of Lawrence , tlio richest In the Black
Hills. It has had alternately Its clouds and

istence , yet It was built up , and agieat per
tion of the structures erected were swept
away In the Hood of mi. The city Is located
at thu Junction of Whitewood and Ueadwood
creeks. The surroundings are grand and
picturesque. The city Is supplied with water
works of extraordinary power and
pressure by the Homestako mining
company , who are bound by contract
to supply the city for a period of thirty
years , The climate Is delightful and rivals
Colorado. The altitude Is 4 , < XK ) feet. Over a
million of New York , Boston and Philadel
phia capital Is invested hero In real estate ,
narrow gauge and street railways. Two of
the hotels nlono can accomodato 200 guests.
Others are under construction to accomodato
the Increased travel Incident to the building
of the two trunk railroads. Six miles east of
here is the mining camp of Galena , named so
from the nature of its ores. Among the ex
cellent properties of the camp Is the Sitting
Bull , Washington Consolidated , General
Mcssltt , Cora and Ontario. All of the
ores necessary for Matte smelting are
abundant In this camp. West of
hero a distance of seven miles lies
the Carbonate camp that htts numerous mer
itorious mines and a fifty ton smelter In oper
ation , and in close proximity thereto is ono
of thellnest water powers In the Black Hills
that ultimately may bo utIIUed for motive
{ lowers for machinery in Deadwood or on the
belt. Space will scarcely permit the mention
of the Undo Sam , Garden City , and other
meritorious camps , adjacent , to tills city. The
eastern and foreign readers must recollect
that fifteen yearn ago this was a howling
wilderness , peopled by the red men onlv. The
progress that has been made is duo to west-
em pluck and energy. Such Is a brief sum
mary of part of the Black Hills of South Da
kota , other camps , enterprises and Industries
