THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the River Press Publishing Company. PRESIDENT Cleveland. THE Arizonians are clamoring for a fence law. FRANK JAMES, the famous Missouri outlaw, is a free man. FOURTH of March, 1885-to be ever memorable in democratic annals. THE rumor that "Judge" Settle has been appointed governor of Montana seems to be without foundation. COUNCILMAN BUCK has given notice of the introduction of the Helena & Fort Benton railroad bill, and it will not be his fault if it does not become a law. MR. BLANCHARD, who recently died at Bloomington, N. J., had married twice and had thirty-seven children. His children and grandchildren and great grandchildren number about seven hundred.

THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the River Press Publishing Company. ALL'S well that ends well. BUTTE'S attitude on the Butte and Bozeman railroad scheme will effectual ly put the quietus on that project. THE Prince and Princess of Wales are about to make a tour of Ireland and Scotland. It is not often that royalty invades the green isle. CAN anybody point to a good, whole some law, for the benefit of the whole people, enacted by the late legislature? Don't all speak at once. THE news from England is of a war like nature. The fleet goes to the Med iterranean, and even the naval and mil itary pensioners must turn out for duty. DR. BURCHARD has been retired to meditate upon the sad results of "Rum, Romanism and Rebellion" upon the country and the havoc the democratic administration will create. DILLON will probably have a flouring mill this season as active steps to that end are being taken by her citizens. Fort Benton. of all the towns in the territory, is most i...

A party of about thirty gentlemen iimet in Billings recently and organized the Yellowstone gun club. Gus Seuieur has been putting a neat counter in the county treasurer's office. The office is other wise adorned by a new desk. The flouring mill at Great Falls will be completed in a few weeks, ready for the machinery, which will be shipped upl this spring.

ANTELOPE SHIRT AGAIN. The Bad Man of the Piegans Captured and Lodged in Jail Once More. Messrs. Williams and Watts, who are duly appointed deputy sheriffs, arrived in town to-day with a prisoner, who is no less distinguished a personage than Antelope Shirt, who, with Frank Pom eroy, escaped from jail in this city some time ago. Mr. Shirt claims the reputa tion of being the b-a-d man of the Pie gans, and that is his record. An Indian who has served a term in the peniten tiary and successfully made his escape from one of the best jails in the territory is certainly no slouch. He was arrested on the charge of horse stealing, and if .proofs should not be forthcoming to sustain the charge, he stands a good show of being sent over the range for jail breaking. The recap ture was made on the 9th in the vicinity of Dupuyer creek. Frank Pomeroy, who escaped at the same time, succeeded in getting across the line. We understand he is now in the vicinity of Macleod, badly frozen, as the result o...

He reports the roads fairly good. The cattie on the northern ranges are coming out in good condition this spring. Business at Macleod is very quiet.

Under the new law it is not in order to brand cattle on the range from the 1st of December to the 1st of May, nor during the month of August. The wool growers did not seem to cut much of a figure in the legislature, and the poor, unwieldy, almost daily vic late(I scab law remains as it was.
