WALTER H. L.INNOX MAXWELL. Charged with Killing his Room-mate at a St. Louis Hotel. On March 31st last two young English men registered at the Southern hotel, St. ,Loirn, under the names Maxwell and Preller, bo,th of London. They were as signedl to the same room. Both disap peared from the city on April 6th. Eight days utter the servants at the hotel fouid' a iutila:ted body in a trunk, in th.e room which the youing men had occupied. The theory a(olptPd to explain the mystery was, that Maxwell had murde red Preller by poisonl anld had disposed of his body in the malnner ilndicated. This seemed the more reasonablle as Maxwell was traced to Sarl Frazu,-iso', where he took ship for New Zealland, as if ii a hurry to getaway.

The Liveliest Town in Northern Montana --Its Business and Business Men The Choteau Ualumet-A Bridge Wanted, Etc. The drive from Sun River to Chotean is a cheerless one of thirty-five miles across a!! undulating prairie, with not a single habitation to be seen until one reaches the Teton, in sight of the metropolis of that stream CHOTEAU. (hote.ii continues to he the liveliest little town in northern Montana. This fact was evident during my visit, although most of the cattle kings and cowboys were either upon the drive or fall round up, the latter having just commenced. Since my last visit, less than a year ago, I observed many substantial improvements. I counted twelve houses constructed dur lug the past year, or in course of erection. Of these the new school house is a model of neatness and con venience. It is fitted out with the...

JERRY'S JAT) JT. The New Road to Great Falls-Business and Improvements at the " Future Great "-Johnstown-Sun River and Its Business Houses Other Notes. CHOTEAU, September 12, 1885. On our trip from Benton to Great Falls I traveled the new road to Great Falls from Bull's head to Johnstewn, and must say found it a very good. natural road, and it seems to me it will not require any great amount of improvement to render it an A I public highway. By this route the distance from Benton tJ the city by the falls is only a little more than forty miles. Great Falls has improved very much .inee my last visit, nearly a year ago. T'then there were but five or six houses, while now the number is many times more-a sufficient number to constitute quite a little town. Many of the buildings present an attractive appearance and are substantially built. The flouring mill looms up over all other structures and first attracts the attention of the visitor. The owners are making good progress in get ting t...

LQOAL NOTES. From Saturday's Daily. J, E. K;inouse, of Townsend has en-ered upoiI the practice of law. The Great Falls flouring mill will be ready for operation in a few days. Charles E. Conrad was a passenger on the outgoing Helena coach this morning. Some splendid specimens of quartz have been found recently in the Sweet Grass hills. The new directory of Butte contains about 7,000 names which the Miner takes as an indication of a population of 20,000. It will no doubt be a great disappoint ment to the prisoners in the cournty j«i. to remain in confinement until next spring. Perhaps they will be released on bail. Fifty-two Gros Ventre Indians invaded the camp at the Sweet Grass hills a few days ago. They startled the boys some what, but were very 'friendly and well disposed. A Billings man went to Clark's Fork can yon, and on his return told the people that with the assistance of another he caught 165 pounds of trout in less than two hours. The fish must have been very large-larger...

THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the River Press Publish ing Company. IT is reported from Quebec that a com mission will be appointed to examine Riel as to his sanity. The government must find some way to save the half-breed leader. THE New York republicans nominated their candidate for governor yesterday and who ever it may be he will have a pretty hard race of it in November. Carr led on the first ballot. CHESTER A. ARTHUR is pleasingly phe tographed at Lenox, Mass., as a very little grayer and not a bit greener than when he left the white house, and the bracing air of the Berkshire hills is doing him a world of good. IT is claimed by an association called the "American Annexation League" that Riel was captured on American soil, and they have called the attention of the presi dent to the alleged fact. There are clearly no grounds for sne'i a elaim. HORACE R. BUCK of this city would not refuse the appointment of secretary of Montana if the president would gener...
