-AN :::1 XI s _ n GANS & KLEN'S' NEW BRICK STOREI THE COUN FOR CATTLE. The Climatic and Other Influences That Render Northern Montana the Stockman's Paradise. How Fortunes are Made in the Business- Two Instances Cited--The Fascin ations of the Life. The advantages offered by northern Montana for cattle raising have often been descanted upon, but a short pre sentation of facts relating thereto may prove interesting to the un informed. Jocularly called the " banana belt," metaphorically the "golden belt," It is in its climatic conditions the terrestrial paradise of horned stock. The suprem acy of Texas in the cattle industry has successively been disputed by Colorado and Wyoming, and now the sceptre is passing from the middle districts to the more benign region of the north. The latter term may seem paradoxical; by the word benign is meant environment in its broadest sense. It has been dem onstrated that each 1,000 feet of altitude is in mean temperature equal to a degree of latit...

GLITTERING GOLD. A Remarkable Story as Told Us by Mr. John Lepley, Of Early Prospecting and Discoveries in the Bear's Paw Region. While talking about the Indian reser vation, a few days ago, in a group of three or four persons, John Lepley, the cattle king of the Big Sag, being one of the number, the matter of the probabil ity of striking rich diggings in the .Bear's Paw came up, when Mr. Lepley turned to the reporter and said: "I want to say to you that there will be a big stampede into that country, and some bonanza placer mines are certain to be found. I base this opinion upon personal knowledge of an event that came very near turning the course *f my career in Montana, or rather of winding up my career before I had passed the pilgrim period in the territory. When I have told my story you will under stand why I predict a stampede to the Bear's Paw as well as my belief in rich diggings in that region." M1R. LEPLEY'S STORY. In 1864 a prospector named Chris. Keyes and myself, as par...

THE GREAT RESERVE. It is Undoubtedly the Finest Portion of Montana. Such is the Opinion of Clark Tingley, One of Benton's Most Leveol-Headed COtizens. On his way home from church, last Sunday, we inveigled Clark Tingley in to the RIVER PRESS sanctum, and, spreading a 'map of northern Montana on the table before him, compelled him to submit to the tortures of an inter view. "What do you know about the coun try comprised in this big Indian reser vation of northern Montana, which in eludes about one-thirt of the territory ?" began the scribe. "Well, I guess I ought to know some thing about it. I've been over nearly every section of it," was the respoise. "Is it the paradise for settlers that many claim it to be?" we inquired. "Now, you want to understand in the first place that I am not much on the settler racket; it is not particularly to mny interest to see this country filled up with people, nor is it to the interest of any one who desires to see the cattle business continue as succ...

Editors of the River Press: I wish to say a few words about stock and other. matters through your valu able paper, as it is generally known that within the last fourteen months I have visited all the cattle ranges in the west, from the Missouri river to the Pacific ocean, and from Alaska to lower Mex ico. My object was to find cheap cattle, range, markets, etc. I was much sur prised to find the ranges west of the mountains very limited. I have found for a tact that about all the ranges we have left are east of the mountains, that country being between the 40th and 49th parallels of latitude, and east to longi tude 101, which includes a small portion of western Dakota, Nebraska, a small strip of Colorado, probably half of Wyo ming, and two-thirds of Montana, ...

THE democracy is terribly at sea on the tariff question. "Tariff for revenue only" is not half as popular as it was. TENNESSEE'S law prohibiting the sale of liquor within four miles of any school house will, the Chicago Times says, intensify Southern illiteracy by stopping the erection of school houses. MONTANA did not get her man for president of the Northern Pacific rail road, the choice being between Corbin and Oakes. Harris, however, may be just the man for the place. ...
