Fort Assinaboine Notes. FT. ASSINABOINE, Nov. 14th. Editors of the River Press: The Assinaboine Minstrels, recently re-organized by Messrs. Mendenhall and Kelly, gave their first performance of the season on the 7th inst., and was one of the best entertainments ever given at the post. The hall was packed, nearly three hundred being present; nearly all the officers and their ladies attended. Mr. Kelly as "bones," and Mr. Menden hall as "tambourine," kept the house in a roar with their jokes, most of which related to local matters. Mr. Godfrey, who has been traveling with a troupe in Canada and is on his way to New York, assisted, and was a great favorite-re ceiving tumultuous applause after his songs. The troupe will give one more performance next month, and expect to visit Fort Benton and Fort Shaw at an early date. When they pay their visit to the river metropolis, the citizens of Benton will see one of the' best shows that has been given there for some time. There will be a cathol...

STOCK DEPARTMENT. (Contributions for this page respectfully solicited from stockmen and others.] WEALTH IN CATTLE Represented at the Cattlemen's Conven tion at St. Louis. ST. Louis, November 16.-An idea of the enormous wealth which will be represented by delegates to the cattle men's convention which will assemble here to-morrow may be gained from the following reference to a part of the com panies and associations that have sent delegates, the statement being obtained from officers of the various companies. The largest and richest association in the country, perhaps, is the Texas Live Stock association of Texas, which ex tends nearly all over the state, and em braces in its membership a large num ber of the members of tourteen of what are known as district associations. William Lambert, its secretary, says the association owns a million head of cattle, the same number of'sheep, and 350,000 head of horses. and ata moderate estimate their value would be$45,000,000.

Louis, November 24.-At the opening of the new hall of the Frank P. Blair post, a few weeks ago, Gen. Sher man addressed the gathering of old soldiers, and in the course of his re marks took occasion to pay his respects to Jefferson Davis, which he did in such it vigorous way that Mr. Davis has re pelled the charges there made in lan guage equally forcible. Gen.

REV. SAMUEL D. BUHCHAk D, D. D., Of "Rum, RIomanism and Rebellion" No troiety. The fact that Mr. Blaine says, that but for an "intolerant and utterly improper" remark made by Dr. Burchard, he would have had many more votes from Irish Americans, seeing that he needed but few votes to elect him, is significant of the unsuccessful candidate's opinion that the Rev. Samuel D. defeated him while intending to do him service. Poor Burchard is the subject of news paper talk on all sides. Even the dem ocrats "gird" at him, and none do him honor. He is satirically recommended for a place in Mr. Cleveland's cabinet. It is understood that the coining plresi dent will make him chaplain of the tal laboosa, his imprudent words are that "deadly weapon," the jawbone of an ass, and the effect of his utterance on the fortunes of their party, naturally enough, has dceply stirred the bile of republican editors. Dr. Burchard uttered the memorable words which defeated a great party, in a meeting held at Ne...

THE session of congress began to-day. As is usually the case, but very little work will be done before the holidays. REGISTER BRUCE denies the report that he had criticised Mr. Blaine ad versely and says that the purported in terview with him published in the New York Herald never took place. THE president is taking a good long time to appoint a governor for Montana. We will be agreeably surprised if he does not appoint some eastern politician who has done "service" for the party. Gov. CLEVELAND gently intimates that he has received considerable advice about his duties that he is not in need of,...

FORT BENTON TO FORT CONRAD. A Great Cow Country With Plenty of Oth er Resources to Insure Its Rapid Development. A trip from Fort Benton to the upper Marias region, by way of Fort Conrad, is rather a lonesome one, and it strikes the wayfarer, ere he is out a day, as a country of generous scope and magni ficent distances. The first ranch on the road is that of Capt. Narcisse Valleaux, at the crossing of the Teton, twenty-five miles from Fort Benton. The captain, who is a prominent cattle king of the Teton, has a fine place here, and with the development of the "upper coun try," so near at hand, it will be one of the most important stations in the coun ty. Already it is a good source of rev enue to the owner, as scarcely a night pisses that he has not several guests. A post office called Valleaux has been established here and service is had from Choteau once a week. After the first of next month, we believe, service will be put on between Fort Benton and Fort Conrad, on the Marias, vi...

STOCK DEPARTMEN T. [Contributions for this page respectfully solicited from stockmen and others.] Wolvesion the Ranges. From cattle owners who are at present in town we learn that wolves are now more plentiful than ever before. In riding over the range it is no uncommon occurrence to find calves that have been killed by these pests of our ranges. They are said to be increasing in numbers every year and threaten to become a se rious detriment to the cattle industry. As a means of protection the plentiful use of poison will have to be resorted to. We should think the liberal bounty of fered by the territory for the destruction of wolves would induce men to engage in the business of their extermination. The prices to be obtained for the pelts would make the business as remunera tive as in the olden time. Sentenced for Cattle Killing. MILES CiTY, November 25.-Two Crow Indians, named Push and Cutting Tooth, were to-day found guilty of kill ing cattle on the Rosebud, and each sen tenced t...

THE RIVER ,ESS. Vol. V. Fort Benton, Montana, Wednesday, December 10, 1884. No. 7. Capt. Baker Interviewed. Capt. I. P. Baker, the "Block P" rus tier, has not permitted the business de pression that has obtained throughout northern Montana the past year to de tract in the least from his confidence in the future greatness of Fort Benton. He is as enthusiastic as ever on the subject. "I amn often asked," said he to our re porter this morning, "by eastern people what I think of Benton, and my reply invariably is that it is going to be a good to\wn. And I never find anybody that ,li-agrees with me. A person who has neiver been here can examine a common railroad map and see by the location of' vour ltown that it is a natural trade cen l,>r and almost certain to be an impor t.it point.

Rditors of the River Press: At last the tide in the wool market has turned; the sales in Boston for the week ending November 80, having been over 4,000,000 lbs. With two ex eptions this is the largest quantity sold in any week during the year 1884. Fine well-bred wools and especially fine combing wools are in demand, and bid fair to advance very much before the new clip can be marketed. Australian and Montevideo wools being relatively higher in London than in Boston can not be imported without a material ad vance in Ohio and other fine, light American wools Recent sales of choice Montana have been made at 24 cents. Our finest clips, if not sold before the new year is fairly begun, are likely to net the shippers very satisfactory prices. The advantage of growing the long or combing merino wool should no...
