THE GLENDALE TRAGEDY. An Attempt to Extort a Confession From the Supposed Murderer. The following additional news con cerning the Glendale tragedy, in which John A. Jessraug (alias Chas. Merrill), was concerned, is taken from the Butte Miner of February 10th: From passengers who arrived from Mclrose on last night's train it was learned that the trial resulted in Merrill being held to answer. Great excitement prevailed yesterday and the day before among the citizens of Glendale, and threats of lynching were freely made. It was thought best, under the circum stances, to remove Merrill to the county jail as soon as possible, and yesterday forenoon an officer started with the pris oner for Dillon. Quite a crowd of Glen dale people followed them, and some menacing threats were made but no demonstration occurred until the depot at Melrose was reached, when a number of section men from the railroad joined the mob, and the cry of "Hang him!" was raised. A rush was made for the prisoner, and...

The New Smelter at Barker. We learn that the new smelter at Bar ker started up last week, and has been working successfully. When our in formant left the camp they had just commenced operations, but had suc ceeded in turning out a few small bars of bullion, and progressed far enough to satisfy all that the project would be a grand success, and there was much re joicing on that account throughout. the gulch. We understand that the first ore smelted was from the Lynch & Con way, and specimens of the bullion wilU probably arrive on to-day's coach. The May & Edna is the chief reliance of the company, however, and a contract has been let to Paddy Moynihan to haul the ore to the smelter, for which he receives $4 a ton. John Castner, one of the parties inter ested, tells us he has received word to go to B3arker at once to make arrangements to receive and dispose of the bullion. John has unlimited faith in the enter prise, and believes it will be a perfect success. The entire cost o...

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, February 17, 1883. f Editors of the River Press: On Wednesday evening the ladies con nected with the church gave a sociable for the purpose of raising the pastor's salary. It was well attended, and in response to the persuasive powers of one of the ladies, nearly one hundred dollars was collected. The exercises of the eve ning began with an overture, after which Mr. Arthur Sias sang "Maggie May" in his usually pleasant manner. A recita tion by Miss Jessie Stafford, entitled " Growlers," was well delivered. Miss Emily Nagus sang "Birdie Darling" in way to make a fellow wish he was a .a bird. "Last words to my mother," a solo by Miss Jessie Coburn, was exceed ingly well rendered. An historical tab leau, "Joan at the Stake,"-Johanna Hinchman pounding a beef-steak-was immense.

CAUGHT IN A BLIZZARD. The Experienoe of a Stage Driver and His Paruenger. The mail from Fort Macleod, due on the 3d, did not arrive, and Lew Rob erts took out an extra ten days ago, re turning yesterday afternoon. A repre sentative of the RIVER PRESS met Lew yesterday afternoon and from him learned the following: He went with the extra as far as Roqky Springs, forty miles beyond Joe Kipp's, where he met Jack Leigh, the driver on the Macleod end, and with him was Holmes, the missing driver. Holmes had got as far as Red river on his last up trip, with one passenger, and there they had camped for the night. In the morning a blizzard struck the camp and the mules got away. Holmes started out after them, but got lost and wandered around nearly all day, finally nearing the camp, half crazed with the cold, and was seen and brought in by Joe McFarland, the passenger. It was lucky for the driver that he was not alone on the prairie, or he certainly would have never got to camp and been able ...

Prof. Mortson's Lecture. CLENDENIN, M. T., Feb. 28, '83. Editors of the River Press: The first lecture of the Barker course for the benefit of the Sunday school was given last night in the school house by Prof. O. C. Mortson. Mr. Reed stated the object of the course, and introduced the lecturer. The professor took for his subject "Monumental History," and handled it in a manner showing a thor ough knowledge, careful research and study. He referred to the monuments of ancient Egypt, Babylon, Assyria and referred to the monuments left us by the ancient inhabitants of the western hem isphere, carrying us back in some instan ces to a period prior to biblical history. His lecture was illustrated by dvawings of several inscriptions and hieroglyphics, in particular one of the alabaster boxes taken from the ruins of Nineveh and now in the British museum. The at tendance was very fair considering it was the first lecture and not as thorough ly advertised as it should have been. This course o...
