STOCK DEPARTMENLT. (Contributions for this page respectfully solicited from stockmen and others.] Sale of Paris Gibson & Son's Thorough bred Flock. Siems & Armington, of St. Paul, who recently made large investments of sheep and ranches on Belt creek, have now bought the Phil. Gibson ranch, near Belt butte, and the well known thoroughbred flock of Paris Gibson & Son. As this sale is one of unusual im portance, a brief description of the flock may be of interest to the wool growers of Montana. The flock is composed of Merinos and Shropshire Downs, numbering- about 350, which, after the present year, will be treated as separate flocks. Messrs. Gibson & Son established their thor oughbred sheep farm in 1881 by impor tation of Merino ewes from Geo. Cainip bell & Son's flock, in Vermont, andl Shropshi re ewes from the im portatiouik by Cochrane, of Canada, from the Earl of Strathmore flock, a number of the latter having been prize winners as yearlings in Scotland.

THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesd~y morningby the River Press Publishing Company. THE Washington Capital is authority for the assertion that Mr. Blaine has positive proof that Senator Gorman, chairman of the democratic executive committee, was instrumental in induc ing Dr. Burchard to make the "Rum, Romanism and Rebellion" speech. CHICAGO, Inter-Ocean: If Dakota had a saloon on every hill-top instead of a school house, and voted the straight democratic ticket, she would come in with a bounce and a yell. But demo crats are saying, " There are grave com plications in the case of Dakota." There is not an intelligent person but knows that the "grave complications" are re publican votes and nothing elese. THE Bayard family has been well represented in the senate of the United States. The grandfather, father and uncle of the present senator creditably served their respective terms, and the present Senator Bayard and his father were members of the senate at the same time.

-, 4 DANIEL 8. LAMONT, Confidential Assistant and Friend of the Uoming President. '1 he president-elect is fortunate in !Laving a priv'te secretary of exceptional aility, prudence alndl sagacity. Two men more unlike than they are in phys ical characteristics, could scarcely be found. Cleveland is large and portly; Lamiiont only five and a half feet high and spare. They are often seen walking together, arm in arm, at Albany, and their intimacy is to be continued after the governor sha1ll have become Presi dent Cleveland. Daniel S. Lamont is the grandson of a worthy couple who came to this country from Scotland, and some of his peculiar ities, particularly his caution and reti cence, are decidedly those of natives of the "land of bannocks." He was born in Courtland county, New York, Febru ary 9, 1851, the only child of a country t merchant. Lamont receiyed an academ ic education. After graduation he as-* sisted his father in thestore, but disliked the employment and soon was busily at...

It. §;tter, of the engineer corps, gives the follow lowing facts in relation to the work of remioving snags °and. wrecks from the Missouri fiver last year: . The operations on this stteam extend ed from the mouth to Kansas City, 375 miles. The snag boat H. G. Wright left~ t Louis in August and worked up stream to Kansas City, from which point she worked down to the mouth of the river. She was laid up November 3d, having been in commission two and a half months. The work done on the Missouri river was as follows: 901 snags pulled; 227 trees cut, and 17 drift piles removed. The estimates are: For building light-draught snag boat, $80,000; for operating three boats nine months each, at $4,000 per month, $108,000.

LOCAL NOTES. From Wednesday's Daily. Judge Powers is doing a land office business since he donned the ermine. One of our citizens says since the c0ol weather commenced, his wood pile looks as if a cyclone had struck it. Mr, G. E. Ingersoll will start for People's creek as soon as the weather moderates sufficiently to make travel ing less dangerous. Prof. Donovon did not go to Helena as he expected. He left the coach at the Bull's Head station and came to town on the return coach. Fort Benton is fortunate from the fact that there is no suffering among our people. Careful inquiring has failed to bring to light a single case of want or destitution. A party was given by Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Kennedy last evening to celebrate the anniversary of their marriage. Quite a number of friends attended and we learn that a general good time was the result. It is reported that VanAlstine, a driver on the Billings line, has been badly frozen. He was lost for two days. Van is well known in Fort Benton,...

THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the River Press Publishing Company. GOVERNOR CARPENTER is supposed to be en route to Montana. He started frqm New York on the 2d or 3d inst. CLEVELAND has not given an intima tion as to the personnel of his cabinet. The president-elect knows how to keep his own counsel. BOXER, a Cree Indian sentenced to the penitentiary fiom Glendive for horse stealing, died a few days ago at that institution. His wild nature did not brook confinement. THE Morning Call is the name of a new paper to be started about the 10th inst. It seems to be an outgrowth of a difficulty the Miner recently had with the typographical union. THERE has been a slight advance in the price of wheat and flour in the last few weeks, and the outlook in nearly every branch of business is more hope ful. The promise is that 1885 will be a prosperous year. THE New Mexico Stoekgrower says that the number of cattle sent to market this season from Wyoming is 223,107 head. This...

RANGE MATTERS. It Was Not Cowboys. CHOTEAU, January 2, 1885. Editors of the River Press: In regard to the item in your issue of December 31st, I feel it my duty, in jus tice to the cowboys of this vicinity, to say that neither my folks nor myself have made any such assertions, and tur thermore that there were no cowboys in town on the night of the shooting. Hoping you will publish this, and if justice is dealt there will in my opinion be no cowboy connected with it. Respectfully, JOHN JACKSON, JR. Cow "Girls." A beautiful cow girl lives near Mur kel, Taylor county, Nebraska. She owns some stock which she personally looks after. At a recent round-up her dazzling beauty and graceful horseman ship were wonderful to behold. A yearling broke from the herd, which three cow boys failed to confine, when the beautiful girl dashed out after it, roping on the second circle, and pulling it by the horn of her saddle into the herd. The boys shouted, wept and have never ceased to love. John Sargea...
