Gen. Battler's Slngular Vow. General Benjamin F. Butler has declined to act for Guiteau, notwithstanding the ur gent appeal of his relatives. It is not gener ally known that General Butler some years ago made a vow never to enter a Criminal Court as counsel for a prisoner under crimi nal indictment. The reason he assigns for such action carries with it quite a history. It appears that during his second term in congress one of his henchmen-and a faith ful friend-who was Sheriff in one of the counties of his Congressional district, re ceived a telegraphic dispatch from the sheriff of an adjoining county asking him to arrest a prisoner who had escaped from his custody and wad on board an incoming train. On the arrival of the train in question the culprit was arrested, and the sheriff locked him up pro tern in the railroad d..pot, from which he subsequently escaped. Pursued by the sheriff the prisoner halted at the bank of a creek, produced a pistol, and threatened his pursuer with deat...

THE RIVER PRESS Wednesday, May 10, 1882. p JERRY COLLI.S. - - - - - - - EDITOR t THE bill for the improvement of the Missis- re sippi and Missouri rivers, appropriating d $6,000,000 for that purpose, has passed the w Senate. Five millions are to be applied on a the Mississippi and one million on the Mis- c, souri river. li THE editor of the New Northwest thinks P the Maginnis country boom has not. a suf- a ficient foundation, and that the reports .sent out to encourage immigration are too highly a colored. This remains to be seen. Maiden a' has certainly some rich quartz and placer n mines, and the country surrounding is capa ble of sustaining a large population without mines. BENTON has several candidates for District n Attorney of the Third Judicial Distric'. i1 These gentlemen are already beginning to press their claims through the columns of the Bentor. papers. Some of these papers o are committing the blunder, however, of a set king to advance the claims of their candi- r dates...

We had the pleasure of a call this week from Major Lincoln, ludian agent at Fort Belknap, wnio ii en route to the brultes for a visit of two or three months. Major Lin coln is n onderfully successful in the manage ment of his wards and we never hear of his having any trouble with them whatever. He explained in a few twordb the secret of his success : "I treat them with kindness and above all things give them plenty to eat and wear." This is the most successful Indian policy that could be adopted. The route to a red man's heart is by way of his stomach, and there are no rival routes. If agents would steal less and be more liberal in dispensing flour and bacon, Indian troubles and out breaka would not be so numero...

There never has been such a stock boom I in Montana as has been manifested this sea. son. 1 Cattle buyers have cleaned up the beef steers on the ranges of Chotean county pretty well. Six thousand dollars have been subscribed towards the erection of a Catholic church at t Butte. One of the roustabouts on the Big Horn fell overboard and was drowned during tte trip up.

THE VERY KICU Ellik.s. What Becomes of Thruem and Why They Peter. Scientific Press. What becomes ot the "thousand dollar a ton mines" that are discovered every year ? At what mills are the ores worked that carry these high percentages of metal? Scarcely a day passes that we do not see in some jour nal that the lucky prospector, so and so, has founj a cl::im, the ore of which is very rich, and goes way up in the bunireds or thous ans. The strange thing is, it is not the tich mines, but those with plenty of ores that pay. If the ore will pay a fair profit over and above the expenses, the mine is apt to be much more profi able than when a few tons figure way up in the thousands. Mines with many tons of rich ores are phenomenal They occur so seldom that they are scarcely worth taking into account when prospecting Of course, we naturally, in hunting for a prize, want the biggest one there is to be had but we ought not to pass by.a small one to look for a large one. These claims with ore ...

TUE GlA1NT't! HOME. Where Captain and Mrs. Bates Fint Plenty of Room and Comfort. Captain and Mrs. Bates, the giant couple, are, in a certain sense, the most prominent people in Ohio. They are pretty sure to bt prominent wherever they are. The Captair once went in bathing off the Jersey coast, and be says the fishermen put out in boats tc harpoon him, because they thought he was a whale. But this may be a fish story. They certainly form the highest geographia;al points in the neighborhood of their home at Seville, Ohio. Mrs. Bates is a trifle the high. er, but, as height is touchy point with giants she, out of delicate feeling for the Captain, rarely refers to this tact, or else arributes it to her coiffure. Their home at Seville is the place for which they long when they are on their travels. It is not surprising that per sons nearly eight feet tall, and broaw in pro portion, do not find a berth in a sleeping car conveniently roomy or feel quite safe at table d note on cane bottom ...

Raided by RemekImu. On Thursday night of last week Indians raided a number of ranches on the To ton and succeeded in getting away with quite a band of horses. Mr. J. D. Weatherwax Is short six head of work horses, taken out of his corral; John Galbreath loses 22 bead and a floe stallion, which was taken from his stall; Nicquette finds four of his animals gone, and oihers in that locality, we believe, are losers. The raid was made with such skill and adroitness that the loss was not dis covered until next morning, when the rascal ly reds were many miles away. The raiding party are known to be Crees, belonging on the other side of the line, where, it seems, they manage to get rid of all the animalb they can steal on this side. Within the last year Mr. Weatherwax's ranch has been raid ed three times and his horses stolen, and, naturally enough, he begins to think that the business is getting a little monotonous. It would not be difficult to induce him to take the war path. Patrick Pat ...

The districts will have an average of more that 100,000 square i miles eabh. THE Coulson Post has' started the story that Major Maginnis intends, when his official term expires, to become a resident of Minnesota, deserting the Territory that has showered honors in profusion on him for ten years. For one, we don't believe it. Three or four years fronm now we expect to see Major Maginnis representing the State of Montana in the U. S. Senate. THE land grant to the Northern Pacific railroad will not be disturbed. The Judiciary Committee'of the House have decided almost unanimously to report adversely on Cobb's bill ...
