17. We are just emerging from 01
hybemating position , as it wer
and as a community we are litt
behind the animal creation whic
bybernatea. Few , if any , are fatti
in puree than when the winti
caught us , and many are decided !
thinner , but all are hopeful ; an
oven enthusiastic over theprospeo
of the'coming season , and justly B <
at least in the opinion of your co
respondent. As the days lengtho
so increases the activity of the cam
from its centre to Ita extreme hiaili
and the sound of the axe , eav
and hammer proclaim upon a
sides the progress oi our town i
the erection of many first-class ant
in a far-west sense , even elegac
buildings , which would be credits
ble to any interior town in Illinoii
where they were restricted to th
s.ime limited supply of building m
terial. Hot to particularize , w
have now in process of erection uc
leas than a hundred new building
in our community ( South Dead
wood is always included of course ]
ranging from the plain but comfort
able log hhack to the new theatre :
two of which are now in process o
construction ; one , the Bella Uuioi
revamped and enlarged , and th
other new from top to bottom. Wi
are promised a bank bere also th
coming summer by a Cheyenn
firm , who will no doubt give us cur
renoy instead of dust as a circulat
ing medium , which is a cousumma
tion moat desirable fo the busines
interests of the country , and oni
which the miner as well as thi
merchant will bail with pleasure.
THE VALUE OF GOLD.
We have been having uo Jittli
trouble of late in business circlet
relative to the question of our clr
ulating medium ( dust ) and ib
ralue. Abouc the 1st o ! January i
petition was circulated among th <
main ess men and bouses here , tc
lave some united action taken tc
educe the trade value of dust from
120 to $18 per ounce. The ex-
terience of every man in trade who
lad occasion to ship dust , teaching
dm that , expenses out , he could
lot realize its cost at the mint oi
imong eastern banks after the thor-
iugb "blowing" and cleaning it re-
eived at their bands. The result
eas that every one favored $18 as
be standard value , and the 1st of
larch was named as the day Upon
phich the change waa to be made.
t came , and with it a general rush
o our manufacturing jewelers for
tew setts of weights at the new
tandard ; for a while all went well
nongh , but later on a leading
ealer here announced that he
rould take dust at $20 still , but
bould make a corresponding price.
'his was speedily followed by an
ther one advertising that he would
all his goods "cheaper than any-
ody , " and make prices to his cus *
> mers upon a greenback basis , or
pen either $18 or $20 per ounce for
ust , just as his customers wished.
'bis settled the question , and the
ixchange bank put out a sign ,
Gold dust received at $20 , " reserv
ig of coarse the right to blow it to
dt themselves. All that has come
F the matter is the extra business
iven to the jewelers for nuw
'eights , and probably until some
anking-house can and will give us
arrency in exchange for our dust
tits actual test value we shall re-
jive and pay it out at $20 as here-
A TROrtBLKSOME DECISION.
The entire population of the
as been greatly agitated for the
ist two days in relation to the de-
islon of the Secretary of the Inte-
or. regarding our titles here to
roperty , which took the ground
lat until the late adjustment of the
idian question , all title to the coiur
y here was vested in the red skins ,
ad that , being unceded lands , m
tizen of the general governmen
> uld acquire a perfect title by pre
uption and occupation , but that k
srfect a title property-holders musl
( enter of record all mining claims
ty propeity , ranch pre-emptions
id real estate claims generally
s a result , yesterday and the daj
ore were the busiest ones thatoui
Kjorders have ever known. The
ramble upon the part of bonesl
olden to secure their own was onlj
jualed by that of the "jumper" to
zt a paper title to valuable posses-
ons , to which he could have no pos
ble right de facto. That the decis
n was an obnoxious one to pioneers
' this country must be apparent ,
id why tne decision could not have
> en so rendered and worded as to
otect the property Interests already
cognized here among ourselves , is
matter much wondered at I con-
3s that I am not at ail posted re-
irding the decision in question ,
id do not attempt to discuss the
alter either pro or con. I only
low that much trouble is liable to
me of it. It was rumored last
ght that two men had been killed
eve Qayville at the "Hidden
eaaureMlne , " through au attempt
jump that property. It ap-
are tliia morning , however , that
was only a rumor , and happily no
x > d was spilled , although an at-
npt was inaugurated to get away
th the property. It is proper to
ite in this connection that our citi-
as have bad no official notice of
is decision , and the reasonable
eaumption is that without it their
terests will not be jeopardized at
ist for the present.
LIVELY TIMES COMING.
rhere is little doubt that as a rule
) people of the Hills are law
iding , and despite the crude con-
ion of our local district laws rela-
e to mines , both placer and
artzthey will be recognized by
r people , and the rights therefore
forced by the popular will. We
i [ looking forward to lively times
j coming summer , and expect to
frees an influx of emigration and
dtal to the Hills second to none
retofore experienced in a mining
up. We have the inducements
re to warrant it , if such have ever
sted in a gold country * It is
jdlees to talk of our mineral
alth. Enough has already oeeu
d upon the best authority , in the
nmns of the Times , regarding
THE INDIAN QUESTION.
The chief hindrance to the dev
opment of every interest we ha
here now lies In tne adjustmei
speedy and final , of the Inoli
question , and we are all looking an
iously to see what may come
Spotted Tali's mission to Cra :
Horse and his band , which has t
its purpose the disarming and brin
ing into the agencies of this troubl
some customer and hla followei
One thing is certain , that unless tl
government does something tos
cure protection to the emigratic
hither the coming summer , our i :
terests will be materially injured f
this reason if for none other. "W
are new yet , and a compared wii
our needs and natural difficult !
besetting ail pioneers to a goldcoui
try , even are poor. We want cap
tal to develop our resources , at
this important need will be witl
held from us iu case tl
Indians should be permitU
to raid the different routes leadit
into the Hills. It would not deti
the emigration of that larger cla
of adventurers which seek counlrii
l.ke this. They are uumeroi
enough already. Men who ha\
everything to make and nothing 1
lose are not as a rule the ones wh
develop quartz mines , erect stam
mills , and wrest fortunes from m
lure's original treasury. They tah
their lives iu one hand and a gu
iu the other aud strike out. If the
full , it is only another experienc
which they record among manj
and are ready for the next. Bti
men who have moue > and are wil
ling to conle to the country and in
vestignte its resources and advau
tages with the purpose of investing
will hardly risk their lives In an at
tempt to got here. Very naturally
they will reason that having plent ;
and to spare , the sensible thing t
lo would be to atop where they ar
ind enjoy it , rather than chance thi
loss of both life and fortune byatri ]
icross the plains when the Indian
ire on the rampage. There Is noth
: ng the new administration a
Washington could do , tending ti
nake itself popular with the grea
lorthwest , Which would be so eflec
; ual in that direction as to imme
iiately Inaugurate a policy , eithei
> f peace or war , that would mak <
he Indian take a back seat. We
lote the beneficial effect of the prea
ince Iu the Hills of the cavalrj
lompaniesuow encamped on Spear
lab. Since their arrival and the
> rush which company C , of the 3d ,
inder Lieut. Cummings , had with
L band of marauding Sioux on the
led Water or in that eectlobi
here have been no more murde.t
f straggling whites among the
oot hills , and no depredations
ipon stock of any conse-
uence. It certainly must lie with-
u our reasonable expectation that
he government will not entirely
withdraw the military from the
lills , and that it will provide all
uitable protection and escort to the
lall and express lines ia the coun-
ry , as it did in ' 64-6& on the Flatte
jute. We are getting six coaches

The feeling ol jealousy between

large trade which is constantly in

id Nebraska ; both have customers

tanifestations of passion are like

St. Louis and Chicago are still

leerful way. .New York and Phil-

Hon. P. B. Plumb , now TJnited

; some years ago that the
