HE RI R PRESS Vol. III. Benton, Montana, Wedn ssday, August 29, 1883. No, 45. COMMODORE POWER Expresses His Faith in the Future of Fort Benton. The Greatest Railroad Center in the Ter ritory---The Boom to Follow the Opening of the Reservation. T. C. Power is probably the shrewdest and most successful business man in Montana; at least, we do not know of anyone who has a better title to that honor-and it certainly is an honor to stand at the head of the merchant princes and successful operators of this territory. While not a resident of Fort Benton (but we venture to prediet he will he in the near future), Mr. Power's principal business interests are centered lhere, and he is more concerned about the future of Benton than any other town in the territory, from the simple fact that he has more at stake here. In a conversation with a RIVER PRESS representative yesterday he stated that that while he had never for a moment lost confidence in Benton, he was more hopeful of her future now th...

SHE RELIED ON HIM. "I hate a tunnel!"' the maiden said, And closer to the drummer drew; "They always make me feel afraid Of some disaster, don't they you"? And then the drummer shook his mane. "You're safe enough with me," said he. ,-Whatever happens to the train, Yoi always can rely on me!" And, with ear-splitting whist:e's shriek, The train plunged in the black abyss; The drummer sought her blooming cheek, And frescoed it with manly kisses. Emboldened by her sweet alarm, As on they tore through that eclipse, He laid her head upon his arm, And friezed a dado on her lips. •"Ah, me !" the maiden smiled, As she arranged her tumbled hat; And onee again the sunbeams filed In at the window where they sat: "Ah, me!" for once that horrid pest Was robbed of every startling fear. I thank you for your interest; Excuse me. sir, I get off here!" And so she left him drowned in sighs, And on the sea ot soft dreams tossed, Of her sweet lips and pure, bright eyes, So quickly gained and quickly lost...

IV.: For the past three months the Ancient order of United Workmen of this juris diction have been making extraordinary efforts to secure a membership of 2,000, in order to secure a separate beneficiary jurisdiction for this.Grand Lodge juris diction, which is composed of Nevada, Montana, Utah, Wyoming and Idaho. The special incentive for the effort is the fact that when so set apart the member ship will only be liable for assessments on deaths occurring within their own jurisdiction, which is conceded by all well informed upon the subject to be the healthiest jurisdiction in the Union. August 15th was fixed as the date for receiving official statements from the Lodges, upon which to found an appli cation for the separation. From reports received by Grand Mas ter Workman J. W. Kinsley, it was as certained that there were over 2,100 Master Workmen on the rolls ...

THE WOODEN SPLINTER. Immense Daily Consumption ot Tooth picks--Stolen by Wholesale. "Where's your toothnicks?" This question was gruffly asked yes terday afternoon in a somewhat tony restaurant by a gentleman who, after he had finished his midday repast, was rummaging around in search of the much-sought and universally-used wood en splinter.. The answer to his inquiry, was some thing astonishing, and was in substance like this: "Well, the fact is, sitr, it is almost impossible for us to keep a supply of these articles on hand. It may seem strange to you, but if you would only believe it, there are no less than 5,000 toothpicks used here every day. Oh, no; of course I don't mean to say that 5,000 people dine here daily, but the people who do come here actually steal the toothpicks. Yes, sir; carry them off by wholesale. Other hotels experience the same trouble? Yes; it is a universal custom for people to carry off toothpicks, and, although it is a very small matter, still I venture t...
