Rev. Da vis, of H »vre, wrote a letter to the River Press denying 1 hat-he ever stigmatize l Iiis pre decessor, Rev. Rodgers with the charge ol immorality and roundly scored the Havre correspondent of that paper. Choteau has a new butcher shop owned and operated by J. Shields and J. Kerr. The latter is well known in Choteau as a first-cl if s butcher and shop man, and doubt less the new firm will secure the lion's share of th ; patronage. The dance in the town hall last Friday night was a pronounced success. The hall was well filled but not crowded, and everybody enjoyed themselves immensely. The management was good and the best of o - der prevailed. Frank Rider, while in town this week, lei 1 an or 1er with P. F. S ; Denis fur a -ct of racing [• .. e for his race horse.

The editor has been away fiom the office most of the time, telling the people all about how it weighs nine pounds, its length, bivudth and citvumi'i r ence; all this after he had cautious ly hung on the copy file the follow ing: Boen —On .'i'eb. 15th, to Air. and Mrs. C E. Trescott, a sou. N. E. Jenkins has the contract to draw the plans of a pontoon bridge across Red river between Alexandria and P neville, La. In 1893 Mr. Jenkins made I he plans and specifications of he longest pontoon bridge ever constructed in the Mississippi valley. This bridge was built across the Mis souri liver at St. Charles, Mo. Air. IL L. Daigrie, of Alexandria is the promoter of the Louisiana bridge, i State News. Senator Olds, of Bezcman, well | known in Montana as a speculator, and who skipped out three years ago, leaving many friends in the lurch for big sums of money, has returned and is working on a ranch a short distance from Silver Bow Junction. What will probably result in a fatal stabbing affair occurred in Billings one day last week between Beu Gibbs and Charles Por*er, both colored. The result is Gibbs is in jail and Porter is in a very critical condition at the county hospital. The senate committee on public buildings and grounds has nu'hor ized an increase of the cost of the Helena public building to $300,000 exclusive of site and representa tive Hartman is quite confident of securing a like increase r in the house. The Montana Central is practic ally* building new bridges over the j Sun and Missouri rivers at Great I Falls The piers of the Missouri bridge will be doubled in number and timbers replaced throughout.. The work will occupy about seven months. The joke was turned the other way on two smart fellows over in Anaconda the other day, They took a fellow-boarder's overcoat to a saloon and soaked it for a dollar to rush the growler. The victim redeemed the coat and then had the jokers arrested on a charge of petty larceny. They paid $8 for their fun. Helena is no longer the freight division of the Great Northern road, as everything is being n.oved to Clancy, which will be the new division head quarters. For months past large yards, round houses, etc.,have been undercourse of construction at Clancy and now everything is in readiness for the change. This cuts Helena cut as a freight depot except for local freight. supreme decided Judge Canty, of the court of Minnesota, has that a bank cannot recover on a note given in payment of a gam bling debt, even though its officers were not aware of the nature of the obligation. He holds that the bank's failure to enquire as to the consideration of the notes amount ed to bad faith and that it was not an innoceut purchaser. A man in the western part of Nebraska, having a large bunch of horses and the market being over stocked, wrote to a friend in Wash ington city 1o ascertain if he could net help him to sell a carload or two of stock. The answer was very brief and read as follows: "The people of Washington ride bicycles, the street cars are run by electricity and the government run by jackasses. No demand for horse flesh." Judge Alexander Davis, who presided as the judge of the "peo ple's court," the first tribunal of the territory of Montana after the organization of the vigilantes, and the one that antedated the estab lishment of the first regularily established court of law, is dying in St. Louis. It was he who pre sided in the court when the notor ious J. A. Slade was brought into court where he tore up the warrant on which he was arrested, thus bringing down upon himself the vengeance of the sibilantes. The Indians ol the Crow reserva tion have a treaty right to allow white people to graze stock ou their lauds. Before that right can be secured, however, applica tion must be made to the secretary of the interior, who with the con sent of the Indians, gives the high est bidder the privilege of allowing t is cattle to graze oa the Indian lands. The liuibui Land & Cattle company of Illinois secured this right and turned their cattle into the reservation. The Crow reser vation is in Custer county and the assessor of that county claimed the right to assess the cattle as per sona! property. The Hulbut com pany refused to pay the tax as they claimed the cattle were not in the state, but under federal author ity. At the recent trial in the United S.ates circuit court of ap peals Judge Knowies held that the United States had exclusive juris dietion 011 the reservation and teat the cattle could not be taxed in Montana.
