LOCAL NOTES. From Sunday's Daily. The railroads are gradually closing in on Benton, and it will net be long until this will be the railroad town of Mon tana. A Montreal special says: The Cana dian Pacific Co. yesterday raised its cap ital stock from fifteen million to one hundred million. We saw a party of five wending their way towal ds the reservation yesterday, and it looked very much as if they were on a lot jumping expedition. Profeshor Foss, of Barker, has been awarded it patent for a window blind of sonic kind which he thinks (of course) will be one of the biggest things of the llineteenth century. Attention is called to theinsurance ad. of T. A. Cummings in another column. Mr. CumiillkingIs represents a number of the best companies in the world, and his rates are always reasonable. He is building up a nice business in that line, and certainly merits the patronage of the oil ize'/s of JBenton. From Tuesday's Daily. squire By waters, of Sand Coulee, is in the city.

November 19th the Morning Call of San Francisco had an occount of the races run on the Bay District course the preceeding day, from which article the following is clipped: THE FIRST RACE Yesterday was a dash of seven-eights of a mile, with seventeen entries, seven of which came to the post. These were Jini Doughlas, Joe Howell, Premium, Ella Doan, May D., Boulis and Bob. At the first opening of the pool soled on the ground, Jim Doughlas was a great favor ite, selling for $59, Joe Howell $25, and the others, grouped as a field for $20. There were changes before the start for the race, Jim Doughlass, Joe Howell and "the field" selling for the same amount. Bob was as crazy as in the race of a week ago. He did his best to unseat his rider, and after a false start, in which he ran 210 yards it took some time to get him back to the score. It ...

THE RIV ER PRESS. A DREAM. An Essay Read in the Benton Public School Last Friday by Miss Edna Water man. Aged 12 Years. It was at the close of a lovely Thanks giving day, Nov. 30, 1882, that I sat me down to think how I had spent the day, and very soon concluded that it had been decidedly dull; and not feeling in a very cheerful mood, I made up my mind to consign myself to the arms of Morpheus, the goddess of sleep, and by whose sooth ing influence I was soon in the land of dreams, where everything around me has changed. The moody feelings were entirely vanished, and I was the gayest of the gay. I had suddenly attained that much desired period in the life of every maiden (the age of sweet sixteen), and being arrayed in a very becoming costume, was ready to enjoy at last the long looked-for event-my first ball. But where it was to be, or what it was to be like, I had not yet been informed. And as I stood trying to realize how this strange affair had come about, the God dess of Enchan...

WHAT WILL THE HARVEST BE P A Discussion in Regard to Benton's Future Prospects. A RIvER PRESS reporter was a willing listener the other day to a discussion be tween a resident and non-resident of Benton as to the future of this city and particularly its prospects for a boom next season. "No Territory in the Union," said the B3entonite, " will make greater progress the next few years than Montana, and the river metropolis will be found in the very front rank of Montana towns, per haps the chiefest of them. Benton has grown raplidly the past two years, but the progress made in that time is small indled :s compared with what it will be in the ensuing two years. The big boom will set in next season." "I don't fully agree with you," put in the non-resident; "the approach of the railro.'l will cut off much of Benton's trade, which will go to the Northern Paefi(e towns on the south, and the Can adtian Pacific will take away about all of the northern trade. What is there to coulipensate for...

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. The Main Points of the Message Set Forth. Complete Report of those Portions of Special Interest to the Territories. The message of President Arthur to Congress on its re-assembling is printed in full in the Independent, but lack of space prevents us from publishing it com plete. But we will endeavor to give a synopsis of the message, and particularly of those points which more nearly con cern the people of this portion of the country. The message starts out with a review of our relations with foreign countries, which are, on the whole, of a friendly character. Speaking of the arrest of American citizens in Ireland; the Presi dent credits the government of Great Britain with a disposition to respect our rights, which has had practical mani festation in the release of those parties. He touches on the inter-oceanic canal; hopes that measures will be adopted for suppressing the persecution of the He brews in Russia; speaks of the doings of the international conventi...

A TRUTHFUL REPORTER Who Wrote up a Concert in Accordance With Facts. GRAND CONCERT-The regular annual exhibition of good clothes and bad music that ha'" grown to be a feature of the musical world of Shawneetown, came off last evening at the Opera House. Every seat in the hall was taken, for our patient community has become accus tomned to this affliction, and submits to it without a miurmur four or live times a year, very liius.h as they take quinine in the spring. 'lhose lpeople who caine stamping in late, as usual, after the Shawneetown style, are B. be congratulated this timie, as they escaped hearing the "Arion Quartette" sing "Hore in Cool Orot."' It is due to the "Arlon Quartette," however, to say this was not the worst singing of the evening. The audience certainly thought it would be the worst; and so, indeed, it was, until later in the evening the same quartette butchered "Come where my Love Lies Dream ing." It was dreadful beyond descrip tion, and the deafening applause 'w...

A visilt to Barker after an interval of a year shows a very great change, both a!ong the road to the camp and in the gucth, the progress made in that time being a vast deal more than the reports received would h(ad one to expect. The first thing in the way of prog: ess that strikes the traveler who has been over the road before is the superior stage facilities as contrasted with the former outfit. The stage now goes through in one day. We left Benton at 71 o'clock a. in. and pulled up at Clendenin at 91 p. in., which is a pretty good record for a distancea of seventy mn;iles.
