STOCK DEPARTMENT. (Contribpltth far this fige res tfully from s8ekswe deqd1is.] IT is claimed that Colorado stock growers have invested about two million dollars in bulls this season. THE Miles City stock yards have re iceived 20,000 head of cattle so far this season, and 75,000 have been brought into the territory by the Northern Paci fic, which is a big business in itself. A SHIPMENT of cattle is now on its way to Montana by a new route. The cattle are brought by rail from Sioux City to Ellendale, the end of the track, and thence carried to Bismarck, where they are again carred and brought on to Montana. THE stockmen of South Eastern Mon tana, have sent a well signed petition to Washington, asking for the removal of the starving Cheyenne Indians, who are now camped on the Rosebud and Tongue rivers. Some 900 of these famishing wretches are camped right in the heart of a large stock country, and as cattle is the only kind of game to be found, they are bound to kill some to keep from...

THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the River Press Publishing Company. RANDALL and Carlisle each wanted to write the platform. NOMINATIONS by the president have been coming thick and fast lately. But none of them are for Montana. THE people of the northwest can now breathe easier. Congress has adjourned and the land laws remain intact. THE venerable ex-Governor Hubbard of Texas was named for temporary chairman of the Chicago convention. THE crowd at Chicago this week promises to be bigger, and certainly will be more hilarious, than that of last month at the same place. THE river and harbor bill,'which is now a law, appropriates $13,909,200. Of this large amount the upper Missouri gets a small portion-n' however, as much as it is justly entitled to. JOHN KELLY seemed to have been about the most important man in the convention the first day, but his effort to have the unit rule abrogated failed to meet the indorsement of the convention. • THE Canadian government has...

THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the River Press Publishing Company. PAUL MORPHY, the world-renowned chess player, is dead. HENDRICKS has commenced carding the public already. He is lost. THE Dillon Tribune is authority for the statement that ex-Congressman J. K. Luttrell, an old-time democrat, has declared for Blaine and Logan. THERE are twelve vacancies in the rank of second lieutenant in the army which the president will fill from civil life. There are three hundred appli cants. JOHN KELLY expects to keep silent about Cleveland until the Tammany sachems meet in September. The democratic anxiety as to his course, meantime, will be something terrible. BEN BUTLER has not yet decided what he will do. A cabinet position, or a promise of one, as the democrats will probably have none to give, might in duce him to support Cleveland and Hen dricks. SENATOR GORHAM will probably be chairman of the national democratic committee, with William Dickson for secretary. This i...

Blaine's Views. AUGUSTA, Me., July 11.-A gentleman who.visited Blaine this evening reports. him as saying that he did not regard the nominatiqn of Cleveland as a strong one. Cleveland was but little known where several of the other men men tioned would have been more available. He seemed perfectly satisfied with the nominations and did not indicate by word or look that they troubled him. He impressed the belief that the tariff issue wouwl .a.e paramount in the cam paign sadk'ou ',Wdraw a good many votes frop tiae o -ide. LONDON, July 12.-The Daily News says : America's foreign relations will be safer in Cleveland's hands than those of Blaine. The latter represents the jipgo party, which, like the same party here, makes up in audacity and volubil ity for lack of numbers. As president, Cleveland would cultivate a quiet, broad peace. If elected, he will be chosen on the ground that he more worthily repre. sents the good sense and studied moder ation of the American people than Blaine. ...
