A PRINCE OF ROBBERs. m The Greatest Stage-Coach and Railroad tj Highwayman on the Amerlean 01 Continent. di [Denver Tribune.] "The James boys are daring train robbers, fearless highwaymen, and all that, but there bf is a man 'who has not a peer, even in the tales of Turpin romance." It was Gen. R. A. Cameron, the pobtoffice special agent for this department who spoke. He tilted back in his office chair and held up to view a letter which he had just finished y' reading. "You remember the train robbery which occurred near El Paso about six weeks ago and the subsequent stoppage of a stage-coach near Tombstone, Arizona ?" "Yes." a "Well, both robberies were enshrouded in tl mystery, and we were at a loss to even al imagine who had committed them. Here I have information which convinces me that the outlaw Dave Rudebaugb, the old-time partner of Billy the Kid, is the culprit. He has again organized a gang of highwaymen. gi After having perpetrated the two robberies w named, he went into o...

BARKER'S BUJILDING BOOM. The Advance Guard of the Stampede Ar riving at the Oamp. Good and Wholesome Advice Given to Pros pectors. GOLD RuN, April 8th, 1882. On reaching the camp the first thing that surprised the RIVER PRESS correspondent was the great number of buildings going up on every hand, and'not mere shanties, but good, substantial buildings of good siz , and the largest proporti ,n of hewn logs. It is only about six weeks since we left the camp and what a change ! Coming up the gulch, on ascending the hill to the plateau upon which the smelter is located, the first change we notice, was upon the right hand where a fine hewn log building with iron roof met our gaze, and in the large transome light over the door the word "Bank" is seen. About fifty feet in the rear a well built ware house for storage has been erected. Step ping inside the bank, hoping to borrow a couple of hundred, we find it is only a bank of deposit, where we are expected to deposit twenty-five cents every...

Knowing ones have understood for some time that Coulson as at present located was not likely to be the railroad metropolis of that section. In the first place the townsite is owned by Mr. Alderson and it is not likely that the railroad company would assist in building up a town on somebody else's land when they had plenty of "odd sections," and as favorably located, in the same vicinity. Again Coulson was not properly located to become the junction of the Benton branch of the Northern Pacific, a consideration powerful enough in itself to warrant the doom of that ambitious burg-and its decline will probably be as rapid as its growth. The grand scheme outlined...

THE BURAL NLWSPArFb . H.ow Public Opinion is swayed and Moulded-A lSketch of the Bucolic Journalist in Hia Den. It is night, and the men who mould public opinion and shake the wrld with their ideas, whims and mistakes, are lounging about the office waiting for the evening mail to come in. "Have you written up that fracas in Claude DeVeres house ?" asked the managing editor sternly taping the tin cuspador with his store shoes. The reporter, roused from the reverie of composing some magazine verses for $2 a page, apologized for not being present when the row took place, grasped his tren chent Faber and wrote: A DISGRACEFUL AFFAIR "About two o'clock yesterday morning an other disgraceful fracas took place in the no torious DeVere establishment. The Ogden Banger who was badly intoxicated threw a lamp at the Hon. John Briggins and a gener al row ensued. Briggins was lugged out by the police with his right arm broken and otherwise badly mauled. He gave bail for his appearance to-day and s...

THE RIVER PRESS. Wednesday, April 26, 1882. JERRY COLLINSJ - - ---- EDITOR MONTANA should be represented at the Denver Mining Exposition. It opens next August. PROF. HowRY, Superintendent of Public Instructions, has been appointed iy the Com missioner of the Land Office as agent to se lect the university lands for Montanp. He has a right to set aside for that purpose any lands not otherwise filed upon. THAT the noble red man is susceptible of learning the ways of civilization is fully dem onstrated by the fact that Indians at Poplar River agency, who' are allowed fifty cents a day for tilling the soil, the. crop to be their own, have stru X for higher wages! IT is stated that H-irman Clarke, the rust ling N. P. railroad contractor, has Congres sional aspirations and will prove a dangerous contestant for the Republican nomination. Mr. Clark would probably make more money and serve the Territory fully as well by throwing aside his little ambition and devo ting his whole energies towar...

A ROSE BUD. It rained yesterday, and the pleasures Of visits and drives were denied So I brought out my casket of treasures O'er which in times past I had sighed, And I sat down and looked them all over Such a mixture you never did see ! There were letters from Tom, my old lover; An "ode" Harry Blake wrote to me; My own tender notes ,Tom returned them When we parted in anger one day, And now I have finally burned them They were silly enough I must say;) A pretty guard-ring-'twas a token Of love from that handsome St. Vere, (For you know, dear, tho' no vows were spoken, We were lovers the whole of one year) ; A program of Maudie Gray's party The one where the girls were all wild Over elegant Austin McCarty, Who only had eyes for this child; A curl of Maud's hair (how I scorn her And hate her to-day!); an old glove; And, off by itself in one corner, A Rosebud. "To Kate, with my love," Was inscribed on a ribbon tied to it: I hunted in vain for a name; And I suppose once that I knew it,...

INTERESTING. It costs something to enter the British Bouse of Commons even when the candidate is unopposed, as is shown by the fact that the cost of Lord Algernon Percy's unopposed returd for Westminster in the first week of the present session was $9,980. The execution of two Indian murderers by shooting instead of hanging, in the Indian Territory, a few days ago, was done on the urgent plea of the doomed men. They had an awful dread of the noose, but professed fearlessness as to death by the rifle. The Russian bath is said to have origins ted with Peter the Great. It is recorded that when he was advised by foreigners to intro duce hospitals and dispensaries into Russia he was wont to reply that "While Russia had baths they needed nothing else as a health giving remedy against mortal ills." The richest silver mine in the world is at Potosi. It is situated on an elevation 16,000 feet above the level of the sea, in a region of perpetual snow. It has only been worked in a very rude ma...

To the Editor of the River Press: Aliow me to make a "small talk" through the columns of your paper. I will try and not get off on a very high horse, and if I do make olunders I hope your readers will over look them, as this is my first attempt at "speech-making."

I have watched our advocate of stock interests, the lusbandman, for something of the kind, but have failed to see the subject referred to.

GOOD men for office without regard to party brand should be the guiding principle of the voters of Choteau county. IT is probable that a million dollars will be appropriated for the improvement of the Mis our i river. The upper stream should have a good share of it. THE Chinese bill has again passed both houses of Congress, restricting immigration for a period of ten years. It is expected that Aitaur will sign this bill. THE editor of the Handbill thinks addition al Cavalry companies are needed at Fort As sinabtine. Can it be that Hunt and Healy are contemplating another raid in the Milk river country ?

FYBO BENTON TO UBET. An Unpleasant Journey---Snow mnd hailn--tasmplng Out-Stopping Plaees on the Road. When leaving Benton for the present trip I drove out as far as Malcom Morrow, Jr's, on the Shonkin, one atternoon, in order to get a good start the next morning, and also to break in "Raz.)rblade ' as the RIVER PRESS dubbed the elegant steed with which I began my pilgrimage. But I found to my sorrow that "Razorblade" did not require any break ing in. In fact he was so well broke in to some things that it was impo: sible to break him out of them. I arrived at Mr. Morrow's in good season, and was made most welcome by Mr. and Mrs. M. Here I met Mr. Rolfe, of our city, who was surveying a ditch on the ranch for irrigating purposes, and who made two-in-a bed with me that night, Mr. Morrow has a nice ranch, and, like most of the Shonkin ranchmen, is getting things comfortable around him. I was most hospitably taken care of at this place and given a good send off in the morning with a fil...

A REAL ROMANCE.

He retired i rather early Sun'lay night, but found himself 1 too restless to sleep. During his fitful at- 1 tempts to slumber the idea worked itself into his brain that it would be unwise for him to 1 return to the gulches of the Rockies without a wife. This idea troubled him to such an 1 extent that he arose the next morning at 5 1 o'clock, and started out in search of a help mate. Among the first persons he met, after leaving his room at that early hour, was a chambermaid, who goes by the name of "Dutch Mary." In an off-hand, business like way peculiar to men who hail from the mining districts of the...
