THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Vednesday morning by the River Press Publishing Company. THE upper Teton and Marias country believes in the best men for the offices. THE republicans of Choteau county have good cause to rejoice and be glad. Their victory was the greatest won in Montana on Tuesday.

Public opinion is not ripe for the con stitutional change which would admit of females tilling the offices of president and vice p,rcsidlent. Mrs. Belva A. Lockwood, of Washington, and Mrs. Marietta L. Stow, of San Francisco, the candidates l'for these positions, cannot till thelm if, by any po-sibility, elected. T'heir nominatiols must be considered. therefore, as protests again-t mtasculine tyrannly and as the lleansc' of making the country acquainted, ini a degree, with what it loses by depriving itself of the public services of the lovelier and iuldisoutably wiser half of creaiion. That one of tle strong-miin(led sister hood who believes she ought to be vice president of the United States, Mrs. Marietta L.

I3EN STICK14' EY, Succeeds ii. C. Lewis as Manager of the Southern Hotel. The following from the St. Louis Re publican of October 31 will be of interest to the many friends of Ben Stickney, residing in the territory. Mr. Stickney was for a number of years a resident of Montana and by his general whole souled manner made hosts of friends. After leaving Montana he went to St. Louis and for a number of years was interested in the Old-Time Planter's house, which under his management assumed a wide-spread popularity and was largely pationized by Montanians, who made the house their resort. He will carry with him the good wishes of his old friends--those who visit St. Louis will follow him to the Southern: Mr. J. H. Breslin, president of the Southern Hotel compauy, is here from New York, and a meeting of directors was held at the Southern yesterday to consider one or two contemplated changes. Mr. H. C.

STOCK DEPARTMENT. (Contributions for this page respectfully solicited from stockmen and others.] Fine Thoroughbred Merinos. Peck & Lacy have now one of the finest and largest bands of thorough bred Merino sheep in the territory, recently brought through from Vermont by Mr. Peck. The band consisted or iginally of 500 thoroughbred ewes and 90 bucks, but 70 of the latter were sold on the way from Helena to the ranch. These sheep were selected by Mr. Peck with the greatest care, not from the flocks of one breeder, but many, and he prides himself on having secured as fine a lot of Merinos as were ever brought to the Northwest. All are registered animals and as Mr. Peck be came a member of the Vermont Merino Sheep Breeders' association, all increase from the band will be registered in the regular way. The ranch of the firm on Highwood is being fitted up as their thoroughbred ranch and for the past several weeks Mr. Peck has had a large force of men at work putting up needed buildings,...

He says the cattle now in the territory number over 900,000, and the value of the taxable property (which he says, does not represent one-fourth of the wealth of the territory) is between $50,000,000 and $60,000,000. In other directions Montana is steadily increas ing in the value of her material re sources and she will, at an early day, apply for admission into the Union as a state.

THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the River Press Publishing Company. WVE are inclined to the belief that this country will continue to get along pretty well, even if it should happen to be. un der a democratic administration. THE report that the Goddess of Liber ty is getting ready to slide down from the dome of the capitol in the event of Cleveland's election, lacks confirmation. THE complete returns from Gallatin county give Toole 102 majority. This will be a crumb of comfort for the Gal latin democracy, as the republicans have made a clean sweep of the county ticket. BEN BUTLER has been a candidate for governor eight times and for congress man five times. He has sought office six times as a republican, four times as a democrat and three times as a green backer. GEO. W. PECK, of Peck's Sun, has presented the Montana penitentiary with five volumes of his humorous works.

The democratic national central com mittee is appealing for more funds. This would seem to indicate that they anticipate a little more fighting before the victory is finally won; or maybe the market rate for votes proved to be higher than they at first bargained for. LATEST advices irom New York point to the conclusion that Cleveland has car ried that state and will be elected to the presidency. Should that prove to be the case, the rest of the country must bow to the inevitable and hope for the best. Nations thrive in spite of bad government, and we have every confi dence that this vigorous ...

He reports a lively time witn horse-thieving near Fort Macleod. To a Day reporter he told the follow ing: For some time past it has been known that there was an organized gang of horse thieves in the country awaiting an opportunity to make a haul, but just where they were was not definitely known. About two weeks ago a band of horses running on Mr. Ryan's ranges mysteriously disappeared and about a week ago a number of horses were taken from the vicinity of the town of Fort Macleod. The former were found on the other side of the Kootenai river, ~ad the latter are being trailed, but are not a5. yet recovered. Last Wednesday at the Cochran- ranch, . cowboys were on their way ...

STOCK DEPARTMENT. [Contributions for this page respectfully solicited irom stockmen and others.] CONDITION OF MONTANA STOCK. Heavy Shipments Both Ways-Inroad of Sheep on the Ranges. J. L. DeHart of the DeHart Live Stock company in Montana was seen by a Day reporter, and in regard to stock in terests there said that stock had done extremely well during the summer, and most of the ranges are in excellent con dition for winter grazing. Some of the, ranges on theRosebud have been devas tated by grasshoppers and are in rather barren condition for winter. One trou ble was that stock imen did not change their ranges often enough and so left them in poor condition for winter. He said a very large number of cattle had been brought in during this season, new ranges opened, and the old ones confin ed in closer limits. The fall round-ups are largely over, and most of the stock that will go east already prepared for shipment. Mr. DeHart said as to the exhibition at New Orleans, that Mont ana wou...

E IVER RE SS. Vol. V. Fort Benton, Montana, Wednesday, November 26, 1884. No. 5. THE CATTLE TRAIL. From the Panhandle of Texas to the British Border. The rapidly increasing stock industry on the great ranges of the northwest territories, especially in Montana, where there are now over 900,000 head of cattle grazing for the market, invests the nat ional cattle convention, which met at St. Louss, Mo., on the 17th, with much interest. One of the main olbjeets was to take concerted action to influence congress to grant right of way through the public domlain for the great ranges of t ile south wvest, t tthose inorthwest. The trail as outlined, begins with the northlern bou ndary of Texas, on the east liie of the panhandle, passing through tlhe narrow western neck of Indian ter ritory to thle ,·utllern liine of Kansas, thlence west through the public strip to tlie (astern 'li ti of Coiloraldo, then north to the liine between Colorado antd Kan sias to .J iulesburg, Nebraska, on the il nio...
