Ratid City, D. T. June 4th, '77.
Ed. Hehald: Having a little leis
ure I will endeavor to give you a pen
picture of ihe Red Cloud Agency, Bad
Lands, and Rapid City.
The Agency is situated 125 miles
north of Sidney in the valley of the
White Earth River, surrounded in al
most every direction by huge and gi
gantic ranges of bluffs, which from the
base to the summit are covered with
forests of pine. The broad valleys are
dotted with the white tepees of the In
dians, of whom there are about 4000
on the Reserve. Many papers claim
that the government has taken the po
nies and guns from these Indians, but
that is not the case. They have just
as many as, if not more ponies than
they ever had before; as for their guns
one little instance will settle that mat
ter. When Crazy Horse came in with
his band, the officers of the post asked
him to give up his guns; he turned
over 117 stands of arms, mostly Har
per's Ferry and Flint Locks, not one
cartridge gun among them, which was
very flattering to the government, pro
viding these were all the guns they
had. "Come," says the Commandant,
"this won't do, we want some more
guns." Crazy Horse went out into his
herd of ponie3, took sixty of the poor
est, drove them up to the Commandant
and says, "Here, take these, sell them,
and buy you some guns; the govern
ment is poor, I am rich." There is
scarcely a day but more or less leave
the Agency, going North to join Sit
ting Bull. They claim the govern
ment has not done as they agreed to
do by them. All along the line the
ranchenien are expecting another
break-out from them, although every
thing is quiet now.
THE BAD LANDS,
This singular tract of country ad
mits of no definite description ; it is as
mysterious as it is singular. It ranges
from the upper Missouri west of St.
Pierre, in south of the Black Hills, off
north-west towards the Big Horn
mountains. There are two hypotheses
to account for the origin of this tract
of land; one, volcanic action, the oth
er an ancient sea bed. Admitting eith
er to be correct, it is strange beyond
description. It is composed of slate,
gravel and all kinds of rocks in all
kinds of shapes, mixed up with a soil
resembling ashes, but perfectly black,
with but a slight growth of vegetation.
There are whole trees and stumps pet
rified, laying in the slate beds. The
whole country looks as if it had, at
some time, been burned to a char.
When it is dry they are the best roads
we have. The least rain affects them:
two hours rain renders them so atter
ly impassible that a strong team of
mules cannot pull an empty wagon
through. But one consolation is, while
two hours of rain ruins the roads, two
hours of sunshine makes them as sol
id as Main Street in your city in a dry
time. This is another one of the many
mysteries of this strange country.
is situated on Rapid Creek in a broad
fertile valley, which is claimed to be
the best va ley in the Hills. It is sit
uated on the foot hills 43 miles above
Buffalo Gap on the east side of the
Hills, and is the confluence of the Ft.
Pierre and Sidney route to Dead wood.
The Ft. P. route is doing much the
heaviest business to Deadwood, being
about 100 miles shorter than any oth
er route. Schnasse & Gramberg have
a good log store room. Their polished
dirt floor looks rather comical; one
consolation, it is just as good as their
neighbor's. Alex. Schlegel is just shav
ing himself as I write. He says, "tell
John Boone this razor pulls." Levings
and Murphy are in business here, do
ing well. McGuire's saw-mill is four
miles above here at work with more
orders than they ran fill at $33 per
thousand. The town is composed of
about 100 log houses, not one frame
building in it. Rapid has fair pros
pects if the mines hold out, which is
still a question of time. Freighting is
overdone, labor scarce, laborers many,
mnny of the men here working for
their board. I would advise no one to
come here unless they have money to
speculate on. There is some gold in
circulation. More anon of the gold
tield3 after I get there and see for my
self, unless I find gold so plentiful
that I can't spare time to write. We
start up there this afternoon.

. Of course we visited the Mormon
Tabernacle in Salt Eake, the largest
building f the kind of modern days.
There are other Tabernacles in the Ter
ritory, but this is the Tabernacle. It
150x250 feet, 80 feet high, oval in form,
the roof being a lattice work of tim
bers, (red pine) and without a column.
Its acoustic properties are perfect, the
seats of wood are slightly hollowed,
and without cushions sit perfectly easy,
and are elevated in a gradual plane
from the pulpit to the further end of
the building. This edifice seats 12,000
persons, and for the purposes for which
it is designed it is one of the truest
buildings ever made by the hand of
The immense double doors all around
the sides admit of its being emptied in
a few moments. No fire trap there.
No useless gingerbread and false deco
rations preventing the flow of sound
waves; easy of ingress and egress, it is
a model for practical purposes. The
Gentile world would never submit to a
church with an inverted soup tureen
for a roof, nor to so plain yet perfect, a
p!ace of worship, their churches as a
rule are a failure, both in acoustic prop
erties, comfort of sitting, and rapid
egress in case of danger. What the
Lord thinks about the cover to his pla
ces of worship cannot be known. It
may be he likes crooks and curves and
arches, posts and pillars, but very few
of the Gentile palaces built to worship
him in show as much good sense 'n their
surroundings, to our notion, as the
Inside this building is a wonderful
organ, wonderful in two ways.it is one
of the largest organs in the world, it is
the second largest in the U. S. It was
all built there inside the Tabernacle,
by Mormon workmen, from native
woods, and with few exceptions every
part of it was made in Utah. The
front towers are 58 feet in height, and
contain S3 pipes. Its music is said to
be very sweet, the building aiding the
development of musical sounds.
On the same plot of ground and in
side the same wall the foundations of
the new temple are laid, a magnificent
structure of native granite, the walls
of which are nine feet thick on the
first story. Mormon publications can
be obtained at the gateway and in fact
are for sale at the "Townsend" and
other public places, the Mormons,
seemingly, anxious to place their pe
culiar religion jad customs prominent
ly before the world. The leading Mor
mons, who have become very wealthy
live in fine style, their houses, grounds,
stables and equipages vying with, if
not excelling, those in like circum
stances in other cities. Among the
very handsomest grounds in the ci y
are those of Mr. Win. Jennings. House
and grounds are marvels of elegance
aud good taste. For once all who had
the pleasure of visiting these grounds
could say they trod on velvet turf.
Such a lawn is scarce indeed.
It's "blow ye winds of morning, blow,
blow, blow," the moment you get out
of shelter, though they all tell you
(just as we do here), that the wind
does'nc bjow much only when they get
a "canyon" wind and when that comes
look out! We fortunately did not see
nor feel a "canyon" wind, although we
heard so much about it that we would
have braced up and stood one blow, if
only to see what the critter was like.
Perhaps the chap that came along
hist Wednesday was a "canyon wind"
and forgot to stop. Guess it must
have been for we see Dr. Miller does
not like to own it for a "Nebraska
MINES, MONEY, AND MUD.
The mines of Utah aro only begin
ning to be developed, they undoubtedly
make and create a great deal of busi
ness, yet the people, the poor people,
complain of hard times, scarcity of
money and lack of work as we do here.
For a long time the Mormons fought
the opening and development of min
eral wealth, but at last have gone in
with the rest, and in a few years won
derful chauges must take place in this
singular country. New railroads, irri
gation on a grand scale, manufactor
ies of all kinds, bid fair to e Utah
a very desirable place to "live at" in
the not very distant future. Silver
money is very plenty there now, you
get it for change everywhere, and five
to ten dollars is a heavy load, already
it is becoming a drug and each receiv
er tries to ship it off on others as fast
as he can.
It rained everyday v.e were there. More
rain fell than the proverbial "oldest in
habitant" had ever seen before. That
made mud. and alkali mud sticks; they
apologized for the mud but crowed over
the rain, as it makes the Range better,
and increases all vegetation. We be
lieve more rain has fallen in Utah this
spring alone than since her settlement
by white men, they seemed so glad to
see it, and perhaps part of our good
treatment was owing to the fact that
we brought tho moisture with us. We
would rather have had the rain post
poned until onr visit was over, but then
it made them, so happy wo could not
in conscience object and so let it rain
on us all it wanted to.

is on the increase all along the road
and throughout the region heretofore
set down as outside of the -rain belt"
in this western county, mark that, and
the time is fast coming when all this
western country will produce vegeta
tion without irrigation. The sage bush
will disappear, grasses come in, then
trees and crops.
Twenty years ago when this writer
first struck Neb., wc talked seriously
about irrigating the "uplands." Now
the lowlands are too wet. Rust, moth

unknown here. We made hay while
the sun shone, and the sun shone all
the time we wanted to make hay.
Wheat and corn stood out doors in
careless shocks and stacks, and uncov

aud clean. Can we do this now? Ask
the open corn cribs of Cass county and

SAGE BRUSH AND SAINTS
In direct contrast to the beauties of
Salt Lake itself, with its opulence, its
luxury and its wealth, the surrounding
country forms perhaps the most strik
ing contrast to be witnessed on this
continent, immediately on leaving the
outskirts of the city, the inevitable
sage brush, sand hills, and alkali plains
meet the eye in every direction, reliev
ed only by the oasis of the ranehe and
artificial cultivation. No people but
Saints, long suffering, industrious and
patient, could or would have tried to re
deem this region from the terrors of a
desert and made it a habitable countr)'.
The average Nebraska farmer would
have cursed himself to perdition, and
growled the hair all off his head before
the Grst crop was raised.
The two principal hotels in Salt Lake
are the "Walker House" and the "Town
send House." The former is owned by
the well known Walker brothers, once
Mormons and now apostates, and the
most enterprising and wealthy mer
chants west of Chicago. It is run by
Mr. Eric, and he treated our boys in
the very best manner that guests could
be treated. Everything is in first class
style, and equals any hotel in the States.
The Townsend House is situated most
beautifully with long, cool piazzas shad
ed by trees. It is owned by Mr. Town
send, who takes real pride in his house.
It is clean, quiet, and the very beau
ideal of a home Hotel.
On Wednesday, this editor and wife;
with Mr. Council, Mr. Hall, Dr. Hull
and others, went out on the Utah Wes
tern R. R., to Lake Point, a famous wa
tering place. Mr. Riter, Sup't., placed
a drawing room car at our disposal,
and crossing the Jordan we were soon
in the land of Canaan, or out of it, just
as you travel or choose to call it.
Passing Black Rock, an old land mark,
that used to be on dry land, but is now
many rods out in the water, we arrive
in due season at the Lake Point House,
kept by mine host G. F. Monroe, him
whom our party were supposed to dine
with on Sunday and didn't. Bearing
no malice he served us a grand old din
ner. While it was preparing we ram
bled on the Lake shore, gathering curi
ous pebbles, and some of us climbed a
mountain nearly to snow limit.
Back to Salt Lake that afternoon.
We rode out to Camp Douglas, visited
once more the newspaper offices and
packed our duds for home.

have been shifted off to the territories

INCIDENTS OF THE TRIP
Going out we tried Ed Howe, of the
Falls City Journal, for standing on his
head in a Pullman berth, to get his
clothes off, and various other breaches
of the peace whereby old Morpheus
and others on the car were disturbed.
As the offense was committed in Wy

The verdict was a good deal like the
line in the old song for they thought he
was "big enough, old enough and ought
to know belter than to went and run
away," and left his wife at home, so
they sentenced him to solitary con fin
ment and oranges for the crowd. Judge
Williams, of Seward was on the bench
and it was one of tho most dignified
courts we ever saw. We had a fine or
gan aboard the car, also, and gave the
natives heaps of Nebraska Music all
the way along.
AT SALT LAKE.
Gen. Tom Thumb and party kept us
company at the Walker House or we
did him, and the big cigars the little
General smoked were a constant source
of wonder and amusement to the boys.
A TIX WEDDING.
On Tuesday evening at the Walker
House Gen. McBride and wife were
presented with a handsome silver
pitcher inscribed "To Gen. and Mrs. J.
C. McBride, by their friends of the Ed
itorial Excursion party, at Salt Lake
City, May 27th. 1877. their tenth'anni
versary." After the presentation a
ball and reception was given, where
many of the party and invited guests
from the city did the light fantastic as
long as they felt like keeping it up.
Mr. Frank Leslie and party were with
the train in a handsome Pullman car.
His party numbered fourteen. One
day some of the editors and ladies vis
ited Mr. Leslie's car and next day Mr.
and Mrs. Leslie returned the call ; such
are the pleasures of travelling on the
rail in the 19th century. Mr. Leslie
took many views along the road, in
cluding some of our p:y ty in several
of the pictures. He showed us a num
ber of pictures taken years ago, when
the Pony Express, Overland Stage and
freighting trains were the only means
of crossing the plains. We believe he
intends the views he is nowtakingasa

Louisville, Neb., June 11, '77.
Dear Herald. When we realiz
the fact that one hundred and one years
have rolled away, and the inheritance
of liberty is still ours, undiminished
and unimpaired, in all its original glo
ry, we are prompted by a sense of pa
triotism and duty, to welcome the an
niversary of the dawn of freedom, in a
manner befitting citizens of a great and
powerful Republic like ours. For this
purpose the people of this place and
rouud about, convened at the store of
LTnangst & Nason, last Saturday even
ing, and then and there perfected ar
rangements which are calculated to in
sure as grand a Fourth as the valley
and hills everwitnessed. The meeting
w as marked throughout for zeal and
interest in the matter, and everybody
seemed to be just ripe for a "Glorious
Fourth of July." A resolution passed
declaring the sense of the people to be
in favor of a basket pic nic. Report
of the committee on the programme
for the day will be looked out for at
next meeting, which is on Monday ev
ening, June ISth.
Orations, speaking, music, vocal and
instrumental, foot racing, balloon as
censions, bag and creased pig races, rag
niuuins. and in fact fun for the million
can be depended upon during the day.
A grand ball and fire works will be the
order of the evening. I am empower
ed to write, and do hereby exercise that
power, and extend to the Herald and
its entire force, as well as to all citi
zens of the county, and everybody else,
an invitation to come join us the 4th,
and eat, di ink and be merry, and we
will guarantee that we will do you
good, and you will reluctantly leave,
saying it were good to be there. As
other developments are made I will
write vou. Ever and anon.
We are sorry t learn that Mis.

on the way from church. The horses
were frightened by ths sudden flight
of a prairie chicken and ran, throwing
