THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning 9 by the River Press Publish ing Company. THE result in Ohio renders Davenport's chances of election much greater. JOHN SHERMAN'S war in Ohio has come to a close and peace will now rule the na tion for a while. GLADSTONE has taken the active leader ship of the liberal party in England and expects to win a complete victory. TAE committee of the statue of liberty ask for $40,000 more to erect and complete the statue. They hope to raise the needed funds by the sale of statuettes. THE Herald says Win. B. Webb, the newly appointed secretary of Montana. took the oath of office the other day before be had received his commission or filed his official bond. Mr. Webb is evidently in haste to assume the secretary's burden. THE dispatches published to-day giving the result of the Ohio election will have a special charm for our republican readers, while democrats will not care to tarry over them.. The plurality in Foraker's favor is not very la...

AN IMPORTANT CONTRACT. Montana Coal to be Used at the Anaconda Smelters. From the Bozeman Avant Courier we learn the following: We are reliably informed that Mr. Mar cu= l)aly, superintendent of the Anaconda company of Butte and Anaconda, recently made a contract with Mr. Geo. V. Morford, agent of Hedges Bros. & Co., of Trail creek, for 180 tons of coal per day, to be delivered on cars at Red horse station, eight miles east of Bozeman. The con tract was made after a thorough test of the coal at the Anaconda works, and a personal inspection of the coal measures by Mr. Daly. Thus the value of Gallatin county coal has received its recognition from an experienced and prrctical swelter, and we may reasonably hope to realize such an impetus to our coal in dustrv as we have never before experi enced. Marcus Daly knows what he is ,ioinig and talking about, and he never misses a mark on the road. If the coal on Trail creek is worth anything for smelt purl"ses, Mr. Daly is well informed o...

LOCAL NOTES. From Saturday's Daily. W. G. Conrad and family arrived at home last ewening. Jas. H1. Rowe brought in a monster head of cabbage from his Missouri river ranch to-day that tipped the scales at thirty-two pounds. It was grown from the seed on unplowed ground. Mr. Rowe has sold over 1,000 pounds of ripe tomatoes this year. From Frank Coombs, who has just re turned from Neihart, we learn that the swelter will start up next week and that the camp is apparently on the eve of a period of great prosperity. On Snow creek the representation work for the sea son ik nearly completed, and Frank's self sat i.tied air is abundant evidence of the fact that lie considers himself a veritable iioiunza king.

LOCAL NOTES. From Wednesday's Daily. Butte shipped bullion to the value of $129,000 last week. Paris Gibson has purchased from the Montana National bank the ,V. S. Wetzel safe, and Henry Higgins loaded it to-day and will take it to Great Falls. Jt. R. Wilton left for Choteau to-day to build the big hotel. If they give him the material Mr. Wilton can put it up as quick as anybody, and do a good job, too. Jacob Hobbs of Willow creek had a horse stolen from his stable a few nights ago, but on account of the bucking pro pensities of the animal he was soon turned loose and returned home. The Madisonian gets off this pun: "W. H. Buck, formerly editor of the Benton Record, will soon issue the Choteau Calu met, at Choteau, Choteau county. We hope he has a good Choteau make a suc cess of it." Mr. A. B.

To the average reader Liberia would not be a desirable home, bit Mr. Hopkins is of the rac'e by which that republic is peopled, and near lv twenty thousand persons of African de scent formerly living in this country; are: now residents of the African common wealth, the institutions of which have been, as nearly as possible, modelled after our Own.

In his early youth he ran away from his master, and found employment as a cook in the army. A fterw ards he worked on...

STOCK D EPARTMEN T. I Contrib tions for this page respectfully solicited from stockmen and others. I GOV. POTTS, OF MONTANA. He Emphatically Denies the Existence of Glanders in Montana Horses. The following note from Governor Potts, of Montana, explains itself: Editor Drovers' Journal:-I notice in the Daily Times of this morning that Tru nmn's horses at Bushnell, Ill., are affected with glanders. I am a horse raiser in Montana and been a resident of the terri tory for sixteen years and governor of said territory for twelve years. Truman's horses were bought at Miles City, near the Dakota line, five hundred miles from my ranch. Mr. G. H. Keefer, territorial veterinary surgeon of Montana, reports to the stock commission that he has seen no casy of glanders in the terri ritory. Truman's horses came from, a herd of old stage horses, and may be af fected with some disease. No disease as described at Bushnell has ever existed in Montana. Horses are exceptionally healthy and the finest blo...

Arrival of Several Miners in the City Who Bring Good Reports From the New Diggings. Joe Supernaunt, Fred Derwent, Billy IHagen and three or four others arrived in the city Saturday evening from the Sweet Grass and are buying a big lot of supplies for the winter--some 12,000 or 15,000 poul nds.

THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the River Press Publish ing Company. THE privy council has dismissed the ap peal in the Riel case and it now looks as if there was no hope for the half-breed leader. We believe any properly consti tuted commission would declare the man to be insane and hardly accountable for his deeds. A MEETING of a few of our prominent and enterprising citizens last evening re sulted in a subscription of $800 in about fifteen minutes, to be appropriated in a good cause-one that will aid in swelling the business and adding to the prosperity of our city. This is the spirit that we like to see manifested. THE Montana Improvement company seems to be getting the best of it in the fight with the interior department. Sparks begins to realize that he has been too hasty in publishing the letters of crank inspectors, and is decidedly humble at the present time. The department, after making a grand flourish of trumpets, seems now to e looking for loop-hol...

GOVERNOR HAUSER'S REPORT. Some Excellent Recommendations in Re gard to Indians and Indian Reserva tions. I am advised from reliable Sources that during the past season numerous depre dations have been committed upon the rights of stockmen by roving bands of In dians, who have been suffered to leave their reservations and to roam promis cously through a region of country where there is absolutely no game, and where, to sustain life, these Indians have killed cattle running upon the ranges, and, in several instances, have run off the horses belonging to the -cattle men. This has been carried on to such an extent that the stockmen have become greatly and justly exasperated. I can but renew the request so frequently made by my predecessors, that some such action be taken by your department as will result in restraining and confining these Indians upon their reseivations, which embrace an empire of the fairest and best portions of the territo ry, and from which the whites are rigidly exc...

Forty car loads of cattle, belonging to True, Phelps and Tuttle, will be shipped from Billings stock yards to-day.-Bil lings Gazette, 19th.
