THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the River Press Publishing Company. TUESDAY was a red letter day for northern Montana at Washington. Sen ator Dawes, of the committee on Indian affairs, reported favorably the bill pro viding permanent reservations for the Indians of northern Montana, urging its passage, and at the same time Secre tary Teller sent a communication to both branches of Congress, earnestly favoring the scheme. Our telegrams leave us somewhat in doubt as to the location of the new teservation, which probably includes the Sweet Grass coun try and a portion of the upper Marias. The Milk river, Bear's Paw and Little Rocky region, we would judge, is open ed to settlement-the ' pick and choice" of the whole. In view qt the change that has come over the scene at Wash ington there now scarcely remains a doubt of the passage of the bill and the opening of that magnificent country to settlement.

STOCK DEPARTMENT. [Contributions for this page respectfully solicited from stockmen and others.] STOCK NOTES. STOCK( NOTES. The letter from a prominent stockman of Sun River, which appears elsewhere, only confirms what has already been said regarding the successful wintering of cattle. The price received for 115 head of pedigree Shorthorns at the sale of the Bow Park herd, at Brantford, Ont., was $95,(i). They wete bought for Thomas Nelson, of Edinburgh, Scotland, who was interested in the herd.
