The Crosby-Botkin Warfare-Broad. says Maginnis Will be the Next Gov ernor of Montana, and that does Settle it. [Pioneer Prtes.1 C. A. Broad water, a prominent citizen and business man, and A. J. Fisk, editor of the Herald, both of Helena, were ques tioned by a Pioneer Press reporter, last night, at the Merchants hotel, regarding the charges preferred at Washington against United States Marshal Botkin of Montana. Neither of the gentlemen could throw any light upon the nature of the charges, each stating that he had heard of no specific allegations of mal feasance against the marshal. The rminior having gained currency that the action was not really taken against Marshal Botkin, but against his brother, the warden of the penitentiary, Mr. Fisk says that the marshal's brother is not the warden, he having vacated the office some time ago. The marshal has full charge of the penitentiary, and ...

LOCAL NOTES. From Saturday's Daily. The thermometer dropped to 200 below zero at Macleod on the 22d ult. "Collector Cummings" is alliterative and breaks pleasantly upon the ear. Thle youngest child of Mrs. Jos. Hill of Sun River-little Beatrice-is serious ly ill, with rather slight chance of re covery. The river is frozen over about four miles below town, near John Lippard's place, and it will not take much more cold weather to close it here. A nian named Dunlap died at Cho teau last Tuesday night, after an illness of but a day or two. For the past year he had been in the employ of S. C. Burd. Thiere are more than the usual number who have not paid their taxes -this year up to date, and in due time a delinquent list will be published and collections made as the law authorizes. We nominate Horace R. Buck, of Choteau county, for president of the council. He will not be the oldest mem ber, by any means, but would grace the president's chair nevertheless.

OUR MINI TNG RESOURCES. A Few Pertinent Remarks cn the Subject by Mr. Choate. FOTr IE.'TO[', Decciiber lT, 1s84. Editor of the River PrcI : The want of fully understanding and appreciating the great resourcee of this (ounItry is the cause of the lack of con lidence on the part of somie people in the future of Fort Benton and northern Montana. WVhat should he done to bring to, or make tributary to, Fort Ben ton a large population of consumers? I assume and from my personal ob servation and experience feel confident in asserting that nowhere in the United States is there a finer surface showing of mineral than at Neihart and Snow creek. In nearly every instance where work has been done to any extent im provement has been manifest with every foot sunk on the vein or lode-a most favorable and encouraging indication. The mining interests that lie tributary to Fort Benton, and of which I shall speak, are simply inexhaustible. Shall anything be done to help develop these mines and bring to...

Several cowboys who have been at work on the ranges here this summer, pulled out for Montana this morning. Macleod Gazette.

The Union stock yards, of Chicago, have a capacity for 10,100 sheep, 14,000 cattle, and 60,000 hogs in one day.

THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning b5 the River Press Publishing Company. PRESIDENT ARTHUR is taking plenty of time to appoint a governor for Mon tana. It looks as if the programme is to leave it open for Major Maginnis. Ex-Gov. NOYES, late minister to France and a friend of the Mackeys, doubts the truth of the story that Mrs. Bonanza sent a cablegram announcing the engagement of Miss Mackey to Prince Colonna. ANENT Tennyson's $1,000 "Freedom," the Chicago Herald says that if that "poem" had been received anonymously in any newspaper or magazine office in America it would have been consigned to the waste basket. WE trust that the committees appoint ed at the late meeting of citizens to soli cit subscriptions to the flouring mill fund will not let the matter lag for want of proper effort. Fort Benton has too much at stake and cannot afford to let this enterprise go by default. BILLINGS and Miles City papers are setting forth the advantages of their re spective towns a...

A REMINISCENCE OF THE TILTON BEECHER SCANDAL. Francis D. Moulton, the "Mutual Friend." Francis D. Moulton, one of the ablest witn esses who ever exercised the in genuity o" a cross-ecamining lawyer, d(ied at his residence in New York city, Decelnlber 3. 1884. Outside of his con nection with the Beecher scandal he was a man to be remembered, being an influental agriculturist and an earneEst friend of rural interests. Many who read these sentences have met Mr. Moulton at fairs and similar gatheringr.s of country people. He was a good pub lic speaker, and a genial man whom it was always a pleasure to see whether in I)rivate life or in a meeting cnnvened for business. His death in the prime of his years and usefulness is much to be re gretted. He was born in New York city, in the year 1824. His father was a merchant and his mother a woman of refinement and culture, who gave him his prepara tory education. In 1849 he became a student in what is known now as the College of the city of New...

LOCAL NOTES. From Saturday's Daily. Last night was the coldest of the sea son, the thermometer registering 30° be low zero. Sam Burd and Ed, Denis ;of Choteau will take in the New Orleans exposition this winter. Both of the stage companies sent out extras this morning. Ed. Lewis went out with the Helena mail and passen gers. The wood market is not as sluggish as it was a few weeks ago, but on account of the big supply prices remain about the same. Jack Harris arrived last evening. While hunting horses on the prairie he froze his face, not seriously, however. Mr. Harris reports the cattle on the range as being in remarkably fine con dition. The Macleod coach left this morning in charge of Jack Lee. Wm. Sepeny accompanies him to render such assist ance as may be necessary. The coach is loaded down with freight and express matter. Owing to the severe snow storms all the mails are delayed, neither the Hele na or Billings arriving last night. This is a hard time for stage drivers. One th...

CITIZENS' CONCLAVE. A Good Attendance and an Enthusiastic Meeting; The meeting of citizens called at the office of the probate judge Tuesday even ing to consider various matters of inter est to our town was well attended. A spirit of enterprise was manifested on the part of all, and the result of the gathering will be greatly beneficial to Fort Benton. Mayor Roosevelt was called to the chair and E. R. Cowen acted as secre tary. T. C. Power explained the object of the meeting to be to take such steps as were thought best to secure the estab lishment of a flouring mill here and af terwards to consider any other matters of importance to the community. The Benton Boom company agreed to give three acres of their ground on the river front for a mill site, and C. E. Con rad and H. R. Buck proposed to donate ten acres in the Riverside addition for the same purpose. Both propositions were taken under advisement. It was agreed that the town and farm ers of the surrounding country give a suita...

LOCAL NOTES. From Wednesday's Daily. MR,. J. H. Conrad will be married this evening at Providence, R. I. Several loaded teams crossdýthe river to-day at the foot of Baker street. The thermometer at the signal office registered 200 below zero at six o'clock this morning. Holiday presents are selling rapidly, and it is doubtful if the supply will equal the demand. Mr. Mike Healy and wife of Fort Assinaboine, have taken rooms at the Grtand Union and will spend the winter in Fort Benton. The matter of securing a land office at Fort Beiiton was not referred to last evening and it is one of the mostimpor tant of our many wants. A private letter from Col. J. H. Rice states that he is still under treatment. He received injuries which it will take him a long time to recover from. Al. Rogers, the new county clerk, is doing all the work himself, and will not appoint a deputy until there is a big increase in the business of the office.

STO CK DEPARTMENT. (Contributions for this page respectfully solicited from stockmen and others.] Stolen Horses REeeovered. JUDITH LANDING, Dec. 12, 1884. Editors of River Press : I have this day taken from Gros Ventres Indians at this place a lot of horses and will hold them for the own er. The story told by the Indians is that they took thenm rom four Plegan Indians near the Bear's Paw mountains, on Birch creek. I have good reason to believe that these horses were stolen by white men, and that seeing the Gros Ventres they became frightened and left. There were more horses in the band, but the rest were taken to Milk river just how many I can't say, as the In dians, of course, won't tell the truth, but from what I can learn I think about fifteen head. Please publish this at once so that the owner can come and get the stock, as they are very trouble some to hold. The following is a description of the horses, which I think belong to Mal colm Morrow, Jr.: One black mare, white strip o...
