FORTY-EIGHTH CONGRESS.1 The First Session Opens in View o Tremendous Crowd--Carlisle duly Elected Speaker. A Synopsis of the President's Mes sage--List of Bills Introduced --Amendments to the Land Laws. WASHINGTON, Dec. 3.-At 12 noon to-day the forty-eighth congress assem bled. The crush to witness the cere monies of the opening day was immense. There was a greater crowd than has been in attendance on such an occasion for several years. This is probably due to the fact that Washington is fuller of winter visitors than usual. It was the inauguration of a new speaker that drew many of the southern residents out. The marble pile devoted to congress looks like a very large place ordinarily, but to-day it was fairly choked from base ment to gallery. The doorkeepers below and above earned a month's salary. The jam became so great in the principal corridors that the police were several times called upon to clear a passage for members. More people were turned away than were able to witness ...

MAGNIFICENT MOINTANA. Some Excerpts From Gtov. Crosby's Report to the Secretary of the Interior, Setting Forth the Greatness and Grandeur of the Territory as Well as Some Wise Suggestions to the Powers that be. We have to thank Governor Crosby for a copy of his recent report to the sec retary of the interior from which we take the following extracts of interest to every reader of the RIVER PRESS, with in o ind without the territory: POPULATION. At the time of the census of 1880 Mon t:na had less than 40,000 inhabitants. That same year witnessed the entry of t he first railroad within her borders. I)uring the ten preceding years the pop uilation had barely doubled, but within the lIast three years it has advanced from 40(,000 to upwards of 80,000, according to the most careful and reliable estimates. In a territory so vast as Montana, being exceeded. in area by only two states and a single territory, the accession of a million inhabitants would still leave it sparsely settled. While ...

POWER-FUL POINTERS. The Commodore Has Something to Say About the Opening of the Reservation, And the Booming Effect It Will Have on Fort Benton, During the recent sojourn of Mr. T. C. Power in the city, a RIVER PRESS reporter interviewed him briefly in ref. erence to the Big Reserve--the proba. bility of a portion of it being opened ur to settlement by the present congress, and the effects of such action upon Fort Benton. The notes then made have not been utilized until this time, as the in formation sought was for use, primarily, in the Holiday "reservation edition" of the RIVER PRESS. It might be well to state in the prem. ises that there are few men in the north west possessed of greater business fore. sight than T. C. Power, as is best shown by his unfailing success in extending his business in northern and eastern Montana. Fort Benton, the commer Vial center and future metropolis of the territory, is the headquarters and depot of suppihed of the firm of T. C. Power & Bro., ...
