Stock for Sale & Correspondence Solicited.
From the Caldwell Commercials
The unibrltmnto sale ol'a few firc-
urms lo ponu1 Indiiuis who wore hero
a couple of weeks since seenvs to-
have created quite :i sensation. A
communication was sent from (Jol.
Jlunt tigcnt of the Wichita Agency
regarding the affair to St. John and
the governor forwarded it to Mayor
Colson together with an oxecuttve
note cautioning our merchants
against ji repetition of the o dense.
The governor also stated that unless
the sttlc of arms to Indians by our
people could ha effectually stopped
the Indian trade would undoubted-
ly bo removed to some other point.
In addition to the above we will
state-that a private letter from Agent
Miles to Mr. Covington informs us
that ai movement is already on foot
b' interested parties to secure the
removal of the 'trade from Caldwell.
Wc are convinced that the sale of
the armV in question was made with-
out anjr thought of violating the law
or doing aught that would result in
harm to any one. From .the fact
that many of the Indians in the In-
dian Territory are armed and that
too with the best improved rifles
the merchants of Caldwell had good
reason to believe tlmt there was no
law to prevent the sale of arms to
tho Kiowas or any other tribe and
so believing thc3r sold a few guns
ancl some ammunition. But they
kiftrfr better now .and we can assu-
re all parties that neither arms or
ammunition will be sold to any In-
dians coming here from the lower
Agon fries. Our merchants intend to
be law-abiding citizens and in so
far as it lies in their pnwer will
faithfully comply with all the laws
of tho count rv.
Among the praise-worthy improve-
ments made in this locality during
the past year is the expensive im-
provements made by Ben 1 Keith
at his place seven miles down tho
river. Ben has worked hard and
the result is very marked. A Jaro
new dwelling very roomy and con-
venient has been built during the
past year :ud presents a very attrac-
tive appearance. A yard lias been
fenced in and shade and fruit trees
planted. A large corn field also
fenced makes a grand shewing for
crops. Pxjrts strong hold however
outside of his herd of cattle is his
truck patch and early vegetables of
all kinds and melons by the wago.z-
load are furnished his patrons at tho
Agency and Post. Ben sold his
"marketable cattle last spring at
handsome -I inures and taken all in
all has done well. Work tells.
The Chicago Drovers' Journal says
llewins & Titus had in 220 fat 970
lb Texans recenty Which sold at
H.75. They also marketed the last
of the famous Jtnglebob' brand
210 head averaging lJSO lbs at
.$5.25. In all there were about 1200
head of these cattle and the first
shipment netted the shippers a profit
of .i'.'M per bead. The balance have
made a profit of ij;20 to $25 per head.
Messrs. IT. S: T. bought these cattle
last year at $IG per head sold them
at $li)r and this soring bought them
baekatljMO. The outfit netted the
men who wintered them about $10-
000 and on the double-deal made
by If. & T. upwards of $-10000
above all expenses. This transac-
tion beats anything we have heard
of in the way of big profits on grass
