"In the first placo"tmd ! the sena >
tor , "two new mall 'routes miming
through Rapid City to Dcadwood
wore established , one from Fort Nlo

Chamberlain , Ujkota , on the Missouri
river. Etch route was about 200
miles long , running the entire dis
tance through the ludion reservation ,
and no whites living thereon. I in
troduced a resolution asking for information

Ho replied , stating that the postmasters
tors nt Fort Niobrara , Kipld
City , Diadwood and Chamberlain
h > vd recommended the service.
This reply was referred to the com
mittee on poatc llios and postroads
At a later day I introduced a bill to
repeal so much of the law of the last
session that established the two now
routes ; at the same time I oll'erod a
resolution asking the postmaster gen
eral to withhold letting for service on
satd routes. When the resolution
came np in the senate for ducusslon
it was opposed by Allison and Ingalls ,
but was passed by a two-thirds vote.
The contract hat not been lot , but the
pi ttmastor general has advertised for
proposals for dally service on both
routes. I wish to say that Rapid City
and Dcadwood have each two daily
