STOCK DEPAITMENT. [Contributions for this page respectfully solicited from stockmen and others.] One of the Reasons. The following dispatch and comments thereon are found in the Drovers' Jour nal of Chicago: "There has been considerable com nient upon the fact that the attorney general countermanded his pleuro-pneu nionia decision-directing that infected cattle should be killed at the govern ment's expense-within six hours after it was issued. It is now learndd that a gigantic steal was concealed in the scheme, and that Gen. Garland discov ered it just in time to save himself from very unpleasant consequences. "We have steadily maintained from the first that this whole pleuro-pneumno nia racket was started in the first place for the sole purpose of compassing just juch ends in one way or another as that which is referred to in the foregoing Washington dispatch.

A BOOMERANG. Mr. Jim Hill Has Little Thought at Pres ent of Entering Upon Railroad Projects in Montana. * The following is from the Herald of the 11th inst.: James J. Hill, the great railroader and millionaire of Minnesota, who has spent several days here, took his departure for St. Paul yesterday morning. While in the city he was the guest of Col. C. A. Broadwater, presi dent of the Montana National bank, as were also Messrs. Ryan and Wilder, prominent capitalists of Minnesota. These gentlemen are connected with some important mining interests in the Ten Mile district, which was visited on Saturday last. They have also interests in the Neihart district, Meagher county, which Messrs. Broadwater and Ryan started to visit yesterday, expecting to be absent about a week. A pleasant chat with Mr. Hill Saturday evening drew from that gentleman the informa tion that his trip to the territory was of no particular significance outside of a desire to see something more of the country than was...

THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the River Press Publishing Company. THE war of the western and north western railroads has ended and old rates are restored. THE number of cattle received at the Union stock yards at Chicago during the month of April was 150,632. RIEL was not captured at Batouche. He took good precaution to be out of the way of Middleton and his troopers. THE market for cattle in Chicago is somewhat stronger. During the week ending May 7th the price had increased 10c to 20c per cwt, THE assurances of peace in Europe are not as strong as a few days ago. It is believed in many quarters that Russia is resorting to diplomacy simply to gain time for preparation. MIDDLETON has at last gained a vie tory over the half breeds, and he is as vain as a peacock over it! His official dispatch, giving the details of the fight, is decidedly of the egotistical order. MR. DENIS RYAN and Col. Broad water have visited Neihart and inspect ed the mines bonded by the s...
