HUGHESVILLE, 1I. T., March 7. Editors of the RI.ya Puse. The blast furnace of the Clenddnin Smelting and Mining company has just completed the most successful run of twelve days that they ever made. ý They moulded 1,200 bars of bullion, weighing an average of 95 pounds each. We did not learni the exact value of the bullion per ton, but it is somewhere about $400 in silver and lead. Prof. Foss says that if he had sufficient roasting capacity at his command he could run the blast fur nace for at least 300 consecutive days without stopping for repairs, so easily is the ore smelted after once properly pre pared. The ore is the product of the Wright & Edwards mine, of which they are now taking out twelve tons daily, wiih a small force of menl at work. Their roasting capacity being so limited they have already accumulated about 700 tons of ore upon their yard which is being roasted on large log heaps. The mining this winter in the Barker district has principally been done on the Wrigh...

HANK MONK. Horace Greeley's Famous Driver Beaches the Home Stationf. The famous stage driver is deMd" He has been on the down grade a long time. On Wednesday his foot lost its final hold on the brake and his Beach could not be stopped until, battered 1$ broken on a sharp turn, it went *er into that canon, black and deep, which we all call death. In 'his way Hank Monk was a character. In the old days, before the leathers under his coach were so soaked with alcohol, there was no better balanced head than his. There was an air about bim which his closest friends could not understand. There was something which seemed to say that stage driving was not his intended work; that if he pleased, there were other things, even more difficult than handling six wild horses, which he could do as well. Generally, he was reserved of speech, sententious in his ways, but often, when battling with a high strung team, would pronounce an epigram worthy of Ingersoll or Emerson. After his little episode wit...

HE IVERS. Vol, III, Benton, Montana. Wednesday, March Ž1, 1883. 0o. 2, BULLION IN BEEF, A LIVING MINE THAT NEVER WILL " PLAY OUT." Considerable Causes Commanding Consid eration of Capitalists, Cowpunch ers and Carnivorous Citizens. The present owners of cattle in Mon talna are about the easiest bluffed men to lie met with. They are afraid to set a )rice upon their herds for fear that some body may take them up, having in mind instances where fellow stockmen had t,.eir judgments befuddled by what s emed big prices, and who are now growing baldheaded from chagrin at having sold out. Their reluctance to set a price is based upon the common sense ide-a, "if I should sell my herd at forty dollars, in what could I invest my money to better adlvantage?' It is a common question, WILL PRICES GO HIGHER? As the demand already exceeds the suply, and the U. S. is the most availa !,e region to our own and European mar kets we need not hesitate in saying, yes. Last year this country's production o...

First in the Field. The Benton [ P ] Line, known as the "Big Four," are, as usual, first in the field with their advertisement for the coming season's work. And the mana gers, knowing that the RIVER PRESS would be the first paper looked at by those who desire freight or passage on the Missouri river, have, with their usu al business sagacity, put it where it would do the most good. It gives us pleasure to call the attention of our many readers to the new advertisement of this line on our second page. The "Big Four" are fast, fine and handsomely fitted boats; are always well officered, and the line is a most reliable one, with plenty of capital to lack it. As will be seen by the ad., the first boat to leave the wharf at Bismarck with her bow pointed toward the coining metropolis of the great northwest will be the steamer Butte, of the Bentoni [ P'] Line, and it is safe to say that none of the upper river fleet will pass her on the way.

LONDON, March 15.-A terrible gas explosion in the local government board office at Westminister, at 9 o'clock to night, destroyed much property. The report was heard in the House of Com mons and caused great alarm. The concussion was so great that it shook the side galleries and the reporter's gallery. It being dinner hour, there were but a few members of the House in the hall. The Duke of Edinburg was in the Peer's gallery and seemed much alarmed. The speaker rang the bell and asked the cause of the alarm. No one was injured. The wildest rumors are afloat. The report resembled the gischarge of an eighty ton gun. Later-It is now believed that the ex plosion was caused by dynamite, and that it was a deliberate attempt to blow up the government offices. NEW YORK, March 16.-The...
