W. T. STEAD, The Courageous Editor Who has Made the Shocking Disclosures of London Life. We give ian authentic and recent like ness of W. ' Stead, editor of the Pall Mall Gazette, London, who has let all the world know how eminently depraved are some men who figure in the highest En glish society. The names of these spoilers of innot nee have not been made public. I as yet, but what Mr. Stead has said to their mieasureless disgrace, has been substantia. f ted by the investigations of a committee I consisting of some of the most eminent refpresentative men in England. One re sult of the disclosures made is the proba hility that Parliament will legislate in the dlirction of offeriug greater protection to p1overty and innocence against the hideous sloliation wrought by wealth and power allied to gross sensuality. 1 r.

An Interview. "What do you think of Butte?" asked an Inter Mountain reporter of Jerry Col lins, of the RIVER PRESS. "BDutte is a wonderfull city," replied Mr. Collies. I have read much about your great mines and the progress being made in their development. I have heard the praises of Butte sung by a thousand tongues, but I must confess I was not pre p1ared to witness what I have seen since I arrived here. Of course," continued Mr. Collins, with a slight twinkle of the eye, "your city is rather too far from Fort Benton-the head of navigation-to attain the proportions and prominence it would were it nearer the northern metropolis, but with all that disadvantage it contains the essential elements of a great city immense and almost inexhaustible deposits of silver and copper ore, great mills and smelters with certain possibilities for greater ones, and a people full of vim, push, enterprise and confidence. Butte is the phenomenal city of the great west." Inter Mountain. A Play on Words...

Telegraphic reports are being received of the astontishing crowds which listen to him on those great occasions when he preaches. As his sermons are read in many laids, public curiosity in the preach er is readily understood. Talmage makes such .t stir when he is at home, that no body is surprised to read of his doings and talks on the other side of the Atlantic. lie is a New Jersey man, born in that state in 1832. His parents had three sons alreadty inl the ministry, when De Witt was added to the number of clerical mem bers of this interesting family. He did nlot decide to adopt the pastoral calling until after he was nineteen years old, and had spent three years in a lawyers office.

" -- - - - ++ ·-·- -- -. - - - HE RIER PRESS. Vol. V. Fort Benton, Montana, Wednesday, September 9, 1885. No. 45. INDIAN DEVILTRY. A War Party of Crows Succeed In Getting Away With a Good Band of Horses. From Ferd. Kaiser, who arrived in this city to-day from his sheep ranch on Eagle creek, in the Bear Paw country, we learn that a war party of nine Crows stopped at his place a few days ago, en route south to their reservation, with a band of thirty horses which they had stolen from the Piegans and settlers. About half of the animals were fine, large American horses, but none of them were branded. They were by no means Indian horses, and it is something of a puzzle where they came from. The Inlrdians said they had had a fight with the Pieg:.ns at the Sweet Grass hills, but as to the result of the battle, if they had one, notiing was said. They broke camp at Eagle creek about 8 o'clock a. m., and in four hours afterwards Lieut. Bach us, with a detachment of thirty men, ar rived at the...

THE BIG MUL)DY. A Broad Gauge View Taken of the Impor tance of Improving the Upper Missouri. Miontana should be fully represented at the water-ways convention which is to meet in St. Paul. It is hoped that Silver Bow county in particular will have a voice among the delegates. It may not occur to the casual observer that the least pos sible benefit can accrue to any part of Montana, except, perhaps to Fort Benton, from an active participation in the efforts of the convention to improve western wa ter-ways. A little thought, however, will demonstrate the benefits which Montana may derive from the improvement of the Missouri river navigation. Rivers are the great regulators of railroad freight rates. Some of these days it may be necessary to utilize the Missouri river for the expor tation of our ores and mattes and the im portation of our heavy machinery. It will not be many years before Fort Benton and Butte will be united by railroad bands and the line may be owned by the citizens of...

Cmw GEORGE HOADLY. 1emocratic Candidate for Governor of Ohio. The contest in Ohio is the leading mat ter of interest in contemporary politics at the present time. Republicans and Dem ocrats are apt to run a nip-and-tuck race in the great state named, and naturally their keen strife attracts great attention. All eyes are turned towards a competition the influence of which will strongly affect the future of national politics. Governor HIoadly enters the lists with the advantage of possession and the pres tige of having once defeated his competi tor in the race. He is well equipped for the struggle, and is less likely t o suffer from the presence of a third porty, thai Judge Foraker. It is, however, by no means certain that he will win. Both the great parties are doing their best to secure victory. The democratic candidate is a native of Connecticut, born at New Haven in the year 182G. After a course of preparatory studies :t Cleveland. Ohio, he entered the Western Reserve college at H...
