THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the River Press Publishing Company. THE Prince and Princess of Wales landed on Irish soil to-day and will begin their tour of the green isle. Their reception will be civil and cordial if not enthusiastic. The Canadian forces are marching on Riel and fighting will soon begin. We trust he will meet a better fate than Bar rios and that his jewel hilted sword will not be found, broken, on the field of slaughter. THE ice went out of the Missouri at Fort Buford on the second but was still intact at last report at Bismarck and be low. It is so long since the ice went out here that people have forgotten when the event occurred. THE enthusiasm among the people of England and in the various British provinces is remarkable, and will have a powerful influence in determining the is sue of peace or war. If left to the "masses" of British subjects the verdict would be "war" every time. THE Lumber World makes the aston ishing assertion that the ...

Obstruction to Improvement. We have learned that the parties liv ing on the Teton on whose land it was proposed to construct the new road to the Marias, will demand damages from the county if the road is constructed. The idea is really no doubt to extort money from the county, where in fact there will be no damages but the prop erty will increase in value. Represen tations heretofore have been that the idea of the proposed thoroughfare met with the approval of all the ranchmen located in that vicinity. In some cases $500 is asked, more than the entire ranch is worth. It is a great pity the old road making all the crossings of the Teton was ever closed; it had been used for years, and up to 1878 or 1879. These far seeing ranchmen know that a road must be built and that through their property and think they have the county in a corner and will "sock it to" the tax pay ers. The county commissioners should appoint a commission to view the ground to see what the damages, (if any ) will b...

The following new post offices have been established in Montana: Blatch ford, Custer county; Profile, Meagher county; Sunnyside, Gallatin county. We are sorry we cannot emulate some of our contemporaries in publishing a picture of Riel, only we would prefer to take him as we saw him a year or two ago, being taken to jail in a wheelbar row, in a state of beastly intoxication. Mike Lynch will take to St. Louis about 50,000 empty beer bottles. He expects to clean up about $2,500 deduct ing expenses etc., which he estimates at $1,000 before they ...

THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the River Press Publishing Company. THE new Missoula city charter wasi defeated by a vote ofi3 to 28. WAR between England and Russia is now the next thing to inevitable. MR. HEALY has realized his ambition. He has been appointed marshal-of Fort Benton. "THE Russian troops may advance, but they a ill never retire," is substan tially the Czar's answer to England. The old 18th Inft. must go to another department. It will be generally re gretted in Montana that the change was deemed necessary. THE Ottawa government wants ai appropriation of $700,000 immediately t defray the expenses of the Riel rebellion And this is only the first call. THERE are renewed reports of : change in the marshalship of this terri tory, with probably good foundation. I any action is taken before the expira tion of Mr. Botkin's term the chancei are largely in favor of the appointmeni of Mr. Kelley of Deer Lodge. THE Canadian Pacific laborers on con. struction...

Thirty-three of the forty odd head of cattle that Iiiired and died in the lake on "the lonesome prairie" belonged to the Bentoni and St. Louis Cattle comn many, the others being of various brands.
