A company of ringers has been or ganized at Medicine Hat to operate against Riel. A Canadian says: They are dressed in coats of Montana cloth, c·orduroy breeches, top boots and cow boy hats. They do not look very sol dierly, but the opinion is they will get thiere.

THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the Ricer Press Publishing Company. A PITTSBURG dispatch says the pro hibitionists are already outlaying their campaign for the next presidential election. Secretary Swager says the candidates will come, one from the strongest northern states, the other from the strongest southern states. Judge Hopkins of New York will al most certainly head the ticket and Senator Colquitt of Georgia will likely be second. It is a little early to start a presidential boom for 1SSS. It gives the other fellows ample time to bust it. DELEGATE HAILEY, of Idaho, makes the following plea for home rule in the territories. Every word of it is as ap plicable to Montana as Idaho: "I only ask for my territory, said Delegate Hailey, of Idaho, "that for the present it may be allowed to rest, but I insist that all app)lointments be made from actual residents. For twenty-five years the republican party has made a political hospital of the territories for broken...

F'ort AsslnaoOlne Notes. FORT ASSINABOINE, April 26, 1885. Editors of the River Press: The troop which has been out on Milk river after the half-breeds, Capt. Potter in command, has returned from the trip. The boys did not have as good a time as they expected. While in camp on the dry fork of People's creek, about three miles from Price's crossing, it snowed for three days--about ten inches on the level. About nine miles from Price's crossing, going down, they got into a gumbo bottom and all hands had to dismount, lead their horses back and hunt a new road. An ambulance got stuck and had to be pulled out by hand. Not a half-breed was seen on the trip. Things look lively at the agency. Par ties are engaged in breaking up the ground for the Indians. A private by the name of Garrigan made an attempt to commit suicide, but instead of blowing his brains out made a mistake and sent the ball through his foot. The doctor had to amputate the whole foot above the ankle. He is do ing as well a...

Sam Word is mak ing a still hunt for the governorship of Montana and is not without hope of realizing his ambition. THE house of commons voted the credit asked by Gladstone ($55,000,000) without discussion and with little oppo sition. This is something unprecedented in English history. A SPECIAL from Helena to a St. Paul paper says charges are being formulated against Judge Wade and that there is likely soon to be a vacancy on the su preme bench of Montana. COL. OUIMET, in command of the French battalion, did just right in re fusing to go to fight the half-breeds. He was not lacking in loyalty, but wanted his corps to be fully as well armed as his op...
