RIVER PRESS SUPPLEMENT. 1885. WINTER AND SPRING 1885. ANNOUNCEMENT. "Tariff or No Tariff!" That is the question disturbing the public mind to-day. We are strictly opposed to a high tariff, as you will see by the following figures, and you will be more thoroughly convinced by calling and examining what we offer for these fgures, thus testing the truth of what we say. We can shield our prices with the figures we offer goods at. By the way, they were purchased in the Eastern markets; they were bought low and for cash, and while the turmoil lasts we will stay with the close buyers. Upon reflection, we have concluded to make a clean sweep of the tariff off everything in our line, so read the following-and then come and be convinced : FLANNEL, per yard - - - - - - - - - - - I8c. 20c. and 25c. EXTRACOOD - - - - - - - - - - - - - 30c.and35c. Competing Establishments, stand from under and listen to these prices !

THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the River Press Publishing Company. THE yield of the principal mines of Montana for the first ten months of the year 1884 is estimated at $5,000,000. THE Denver & Rio Grande railroad propose extending a narrow-gauge road into Montana, to Butte and to a connec tion with the Northern Pacific. THERE are in the United States 4,000 public libraries, containing about 15,000, 000 volumes. The annual expenditure for their support is probably not less than $3,000,000. AN audacious English pill manufac turer sends 10,000 copies of a handbill to Gen. Woolsely and offers $650 to the first soldier who nails one to the door of Gen. Gordon's palace in Khartoum. IF the bill introduced in the house by Gov. Potts, to prohibit prize fighting in the territory, should pass, Butte would commence to decline, as that city seems to* be the resort of all the sluggers in America. THE legislature is now ready for work and will doubtless progress rapidly...

The Pre-emption, Desert Land, and Tim ber Culture Acts Repealed. WVASHINGTON, January 13.-The house bill to repeal the pre-emption, desert land and timber culture laws, passed the senate. The first section provides for the repeal of the pre-emp ticn law. This repeal, however, is not to affect the rights of any person which are accruing on the passage of this act. It further provides that any person who has not heretofore had the benefit of the pre-emption law, who has failed from any cause to perfect the title of land heretofore entered by him under the homestead laws, may take a second homestead entry in lieu of the pre-emp tion privilege which is repealed. Sectioa two repeals the timber culture law, with the provision that it shall not interfere with existing rights. Section three amends the revised sta tutes, so that persons that have availed themselves of the homestead laws may Lay the minimum price of the lands after eighteen months from the date of entry; provided they file pr...

These cattle are a part of the 2,500 head that were driven in by this company last fall from Texas. -Bie Horn Sentinel.

RANGE MATTERS. Our Branding System. By the present system of branding a hide is lessened in value from two to four dollars. During the late Cattle men's convention at St. Louis, tanners and dealers in hides, from all parts of t.he country, attended in hopes of being able to influence the cattlemen to change their method of branding so as not to injure the hides. The matter is quite a serious one with hide dealers and leather men, but we can see no immediate remedy. When the subject was brought before the convention a delegate said : "We don't raise cows for the hide, we raise them for meat. If the tanners don't want the hide they can leave it alone. Do they think we are going up and examine our cattle with an opera glass to find the brand ?" Large Horses in America. English Live Stock Journal. In all our large towns, says Major M. C. Weld in an American contemporary, there is a demand for large horses which is not likely to be satisfied in many years. The breeds which are most favor...

STOCK DEPARTME1' T. [Contributions for this page respectfully solicited from stockmen and others.} Less Fortunate Than Montana. ST. Louis, January 18-Dispatches from Texas continue to report great loss to cattle and sheep by the late cold weather in various parts on many ranges in the northern and western parts of the state. Great numbers of cattle have drifted southward till stopped by wire fencing running many miles east and west and are now dying by hundreds and even thousands from hunger, thirst and cold. The loss is chiefly on ranges *hich have suffered from drouth, both grass and water being scarce and cattle poor; but even in more favored parts of the state a great amount of stock has already been lost by the unusual severity of the weather. It is estimated that 10 per cent of cattle and 20 per cent of sheep have perished. Marketing Montana Horses. [Herald.] A.
