flELENA ITEMS. From Oar Own Correspondent. HELENA, July 25, 1881. The M. E. Conference, Bishop Wiley pre siding, closed its labors at this place last evening. A large number of ministers was present and the public meetings were quite enthusiastic. Rev. S. E. Winger, of Luthers ville, Pa., was placed in charge of the Hel ena church. The church at Benton was al so assigned to a new man. All the resident preachers were continued at the places oc cupied by them last year, with the exception of Rev. Van Orsdale who was allowed to run at large, as boss, or overseer of the Terri tory. The bishop, in his closing address, paid a handsome compliment to Montana and Montanians; and exhorted the good people to be diligent ,in laying a good foun dation of pure morality and religion for the promising, prosperous, new State of the near future. The serenade given to Gen. Gibbon and Delegate Maginnis, on Soturday evening, was witnessed by a large crowd. The speeches of the distinguished gentlemen wer...

NOTES OF THE D . [The American.] The death of Dean Stanley, |lthough not unexpected, will awaken a thr) of sorrow in all parts of the English-spe ing world. The Dean was a man of tinguir beauty of character and breadth of symp hy. In the deepest sense of the word, he w not a theo logian. He has made no such nark on the theological thought of the world . Frederick Maurice or Friedrich Schleierr cher. His books discuss merely the ext nalities of Christianity, and have no farther esson than the beauty of the Christain love that "o'er looks the bounds of creeds." l~et he has been the most popular of writers theology by reason of his brilliancy in d scription. His histories, especially that of t4e Jewish Church; have cast a new and mort gracious light on subjects thought remote frbm gener al sympathy, because poorly treated by his predecessors. But he was not a historian of that high order in which Carlyle or Freeman finds his place. His utter failure to read the story of the Scottish Ki...

THE RIVER PRESS. Wednesday, August 3, 1881.1 JERRY COLLINS, - - - ----- EDITORi CONKLING will sulk in his tent a long time. Defeat is a new experience to the New York Achilles. BarroN ought to have a flouring mill, and our citizens should be willing to assist in bringing one here. BENTON will never have sidewalks, good streets, nor proper drainage, until she is duly incorporated as a town. ALL legal business entrusted to Roscoe Conkling will receive prompt attention. Ad dress him at Utica, N. Y. CONKLIG will have his revenge. If the Half-Breeds did Lapham this time, he will manage to get even on that score. WONDERLAND is attracting many tourists this summer. In the near future it will be one of the most favorite summer resorts of this or any other country. WE rise to inquire what has happened to Mahone ? The little Readjuster has dropped completely out of public notice, and a few short months ago his name was on every tongue. Such is fame ! Iv for no other reason, Benton should be i...

THE TRAIN ROBBERY. Full Particulars of a Most Audacious Crime. KANSAS CITY, MO., July 1.--Farther in formation has been received here by an in coming Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific train of the daringly planned and successful train robbery, which occurred at Winston, a sta tion on the Rock Island road a short distance east of Cameron. The robbers were six in number, and are supposed to have been un der the leadership of Jesse James. The men boarded the train, which leaves this city at 6:30 p. m., at Cameron. At Winston, when the train stopped, they stood up in the aible of the car with drawn revolvers. One of the bandits, a man with heavy whiskers, ad vanced with a revolver in each hand towards William Westfall, the conductor, and ordered him to hold up his hands. The conductor was slow in complying with his demands, and was shot through the heart by the des perado. One of the other men then shot John McCullough, a stone cutter of Wilton Junction, who turned outward in his seat,...

DRIFT WOOD. The Marquis of Lorne's term of office will end in December of next year, and it is likely that he will then quit Canada. Five thousand persons, or one-sixteenth of the population of 80,000, have joined church at Indianapolis in the last six months. Col. J. A. Sumner, of Akron, Ohio, wit nessed the launching of the first steamboat west of the Alleghanies, at Pittsburg, in 1816. He rode on the first steamer, "Walk-in-the Water," that navigated the lakes. ~He is noted locally for his long white beard, which is three feet in length. "Billy the Kid," one of the most noted murderers in the West, was shot through the heart by the sheriff of Lincoln county, New Mexico, a few days ago. The murderer was only twenty-one years of age, and boasted of having killed twenty-one men during his short life. George W. Ingalls, formerly United States Indian agent at Quito agency, is an alleged defaulter to the government for more than $100,000. He has been indicted, but as he sojourneth in w...

BENTON'S BUSINESS. Something about Our Merchant Princes A Ohallenge to any Town in the World. It is Benton's rare good fortune to have in her midst a number of the best and most en terprising business men in the country. There are firms who have invested little less than a half a million dollars in their business here, and the fact that men of such means and business sagacity are willing to invest so heavily, is the best of evidence that there is a brilliant future before the town. Murphy, Neel & Co. have several houses in the Territory, but none as extensive or as finely-stocked as their Benton house. They have here, perhaps, the largest and best business building in the Territory. Mr. W. H. Todd, a member of the firm, manages the business at this point, and the success that has attended his efforts is the best of evidence that he is the right man in the right place. It is no unusual thing for this firm, during the busy season, to sell from $5,000 to $8,000 worth of goods in a ...

THE ROAD TO THE MINES. Some of the Pleasant Homes and Hospit able People to be Found Between Benton and the Barker. When we climbed into the pilot house of one of Jim McDevitt's "B." (Broncho) Line, one day last week, and grasped the steering apparatus, there was a queer feeling of un certainty as to our ability to retain that posi tion should our "ship of the prairie" indulge in the pitching and tossing which we have sometimes noticed in others of the build. But this particular "ship" behaved exceeding vweil, and we were soon scudding along, with a number of jolly consorts, outward bound for Barker. It is impossible, in the short space allowed to an ordinary newspaper article, to do full justice to the many things noticeable on the road between this place and the now cele brated mining camp, but we will endeavor to briefly notice some of the places by the way. The Highwood valley is said to be the gar den spot of Northern Montana, and a brief visit to that favored section leads us ...

T.s associated press agent has ceased ob serving Mr. Conkling's movements. We have heard nothing of him for a whole week. DYNAMITE RossA and Urowe, the projec. tors of the infernal machines, and Guitteau, the assassin, should be chained together and sent to the Dry Tortugas to spend the rest of their unnatural lives. THERE are few Irishmen in this country who will endorse the fiendish infernal ma chine plot of O'Donavan Rossa and P. W. Crowe. These men and others of their ilk are the worst enemies of the Irish cause. THERE will be two Millers in the United States Senate when the Senator elect from New York is sworn in.

FEMININE FANCIES. Mary had a vaccine scab Upon her snow white arm, She warned her beau to this effect, For fear he'd do it harm. But when they came to part that night She gave an mighty grab, And whispered, "IHug me awful tight, Anl never mind the scab !" French heels are not st3 lish. Gold and silver cords lace the new low shoes, In Germany the ladies take their knitting to the beer garden. An old couple in Maine have been married seventy-five years.

SITTING BULL. Hils Arrival at Btlsnarek--Never Faw a City or Locomotive Belore, and Nev er Wants to Again-WVhy he Ab bors Newspaper Men. [Bismarck Tribune.] At the steamboat landing a thousand or more people bad gathered in anticipation of his arrival, to many of whom he gave audi ence by answering, through the interpreter, questions that were asked. Mrs. Capt. Bar mon, wife of the post trader, acted as inter preter, to whom Sitting Bull was quite con versational. The earnestness of the conver sation was evinced by the constant and inter esting gestures made. Beside him was a tall Indian with hair unadorned and slightly gray. His narrow forehead and fullness above the eyes gave him an interesting coun tenance. This Indian was introduced to Mrs. Harmon as Sitting Bull's father. He was non-committal in his conversation, and ex pressed his appreciation for the courtesies extended by the officers of the boat and other gentlemen he had met in the city. To a re porter he stated that while...

A NE VADA NOVEL. B Trno Story of the Lives and Loves of a Sage Brush Family. [Reno Gazette.] The romances that are put in good shape by the novelist and newspaper excite great interest, while those in real life, going on all the time, are not seen one in a dozen, and yet truth is stranger than fiction. Few plays or novels have so much real incident and so strange changes as recently occurred to a little family in this State. It consisted of the father and mother and a bright little boy. They are well thought of and go in good so ciety. The father has always been a model man. ie, uses no tobacco, never drinks or swears and never made his wife jealous. They were married in an eastern State and lived there and here in solid comfort and in apparent happiness. Not long ago one ot those strange changes that sometimes come over the wayward human heart turned the wife's affection away from her husband to center on a bachelor neighbor. She asked her husband to give her a divorce, but he re f...

THE RIVER PRESS Wednesday, August 17, 1881. JERRY COLLINS, - --- ---- EDITO THE President is improving, but very slowly. _ To incorporate or not to incorporate, that's the question. THE doctors agree that the President is out of danger. MADIson county is developing her quartz mines and anticipates a boom. ROBT. E. STRAHOEN has a new book out on "Montana and the Yellowstone Park." ORvILLE S. GRANT, a brother of the ex President, died last week at Elizabeth, N. J. THE ;ndications are that the river metrop olis will be the Territorial metropolis ere long. JAY GOULD owns 7,000 miles of railroad, valued at $160,000,000, and still he is not contented. BENTON is growing more rapidly than any town in the Territory. The 1881 boom is a little late but it is a big one. MAUD S. is the trotting wonder of the age. She beat her previous record at Rochester on the 11th inst., making a mile in 2:10*. REPORTS from the east are to the effect that August 12th was the hottest day since the establishment...
