Miss Jennie Palmer, who has been &giviug selcet readings in other towns of thle territory with great success, would (,ine t,( Fort Benton if sufficient cn coiiurgeenllt were offered. We believe t hat ally deserving entertainnment would ,e lilberally patronized by the Benton public at this time, and would advise Miss P'alm er to come on. For several months past, conductors on the Northern Pacific have been afraid of their heads. Nine have been tiscllargedl, and those who remain are in hot water for fear that their heads will come off too. Head officials are all very reticent, but it Ais understbod that spotters have been at work for some time, and have furnished information to the etfect that the boys were not diyid ing fair wrl the atockholders. / Henry Kennerly's little son.e , 'ears old, fell from a wooden horse on which Mr. K. keeps his-saddle, yester (lay, suffering a severe fracture-of the arm.

It is now almost too late tohave Cho teau coutnty represented at the New Orleans Exposition, but if some choice specinlmens of minerals, wool, vegetables or other products of the county should be sent on to Helena at once they would probably be in time to be forwarded to INew Orleans with the exhibits of other co0nties of the territory. Parties who have any of these products and desire to have them on display at the exposition can have them forwarded without expen es to them through Mr. Jere Sullivan, one of the corn missioners fpr.Choteau county. It is much to be regreted that steps were not taken earlier to have a creditable exhibit from this county-which is "world astonisher" in the production grain, vegetables, wool and other article. From Monday's Daly. There are about thirty persons in th ILewis and Clarke county jail. Several teams leaded at I. -. Baker & ('o.'s today with merchandise for Ham ilto,.li & H-azlett. Murjihy, Maclay & Co. are loading, !,(10) pounds of general merchandise finr (;eorge St)1ne, of Philbrook. The indications are that Fort Benton will be libertlly supplied with apziples this winter. Several of our dealers are shipping large quantities of them. The local contest, with several tickets in the field, in Yellowstoneand Gallita counties, seem from thi~ distance to be good deal "warmer" thai tihe Choteau county affair. Dr. Turner and G. R.

Next spring when water is plenty, as it will be f i three or four months, the output of th: Little Rocky placers will be no incon siderable amount. Mark it. County Commissioner J. V. Stafford, L. Rotwitt, Almon Spencer and. P. H. Maloney, a delegation of our most enter prising business men, made a trip to Neihart last week, for the purpose of looking out a new trail to that camp. It is the desire of the county to build a good road to that camp and wants to find the best and mostipracticable route. This party found a route which is much freer iromn rock and wet ground, though t to be five miles shorter than the one now traveled, and it is likely it will be adopted. The camp will come to the front next spring and a good wagon road is absolutely necessary.-Husband man. From Tuesday's Daily. A week from to-day is the great polit ical battle, .. .. T. E. Collins returned this afterno froi a triI to the Judith. Deputies Caldwell and Houk returned from Sun River last evening. The telegrauh line between this city and Fort Shaw has been down for sev eral days. Phil. A. Manix has purchased W. H. Burgess' entire stock of goods which are now being invoiced for him by Mr. Fortune. A. M. Walley announces himself as 4n independent candidate for the office 6f road supervisor, subject to the decis i-n of the voters at the polls on Novem bbLr 4th. * ,-- A son was born to Mrs. W. H. Cam eron on the Marias Sunday, but it lived only a few minutes after it was born. r'he child weighed thirteen and a half pIounids. The St. Paul Rate association, at its meeting last week, agreed upon $21.80 as a basing rate from St. Paul or Min neapolis to St. Louis. for stockmen from the Manitoba, Canadian Pacific or Northern Pacific country, who will at tend the cattlemen's convention at St. Louis November 17. Mr. CG orge Westervelt hass just return ed from the Little Rockies where he has spent several weeks. He thinks it will prove a good mining district.. Messrs. W'ebster, Ingersoll and others are work ing in Little Horn gulch, getting ready to sluice, and expect to take out consid erable money this fall. The Montana Solons will occupy quarters in the the third story of Parcl en's building this winter, which is now being put ini proper trim for i heir re ception. On account of his -age and the difficulty ahd hardships of climbing two flight of .tairs daily the voters of this county will generously leave Uncle Jesse Taylor to look after his herds and send his young and active opponent to the capital. R. A. Richie, the enterprising mer chant of Rocky Point, received a large stock of general merchandise on the steamer Helena, which unloaded at that place last week, and is now prepar ed to meet every demand of the trade. Heis especially prepared to supply the wants Ef the miners in the Little eRock ies and will no, (iouIbt do a rushing buA ness this winter, as the mines are but ttwenty miles frbm his place. Lieut. Wright, of Bismarck, who is at the head of the signal service for this dbepartment, is expected in the city daily, on a. tour of inspection. While here our citizens should interview him in regard to the line between this city and Helena, which is out of Working order more than half the time, and urge that steps be taken to put it in good re pair before winter sets in. The line needs a thorough overhauling, and it will be of but little service hereafter un less it getsl it. J. A. McNaught returned Sunda from an exrended trip down the Big Muddy, having stopped awhile at Pop lar river, Wolf Point, Rocky Point and other places. He received the freight of the steamer Helena at Rocky Point. Her cargo was mostly for Forts Magin nis, Assinaboine and Belknap, with a mall consignment for this city.

Spencer is now sure of election, His opponent has "carded the public." The people of Choteau county would do themselves proud by giving W. H. Hunt a majority fof the office of district attorney. Posters bearing the legend "Vote for J. W. Wheelock for superintendent of schools," have been put up in various portions of the city. F. C. Roosevelt has a walk-over for assessor. Democrats and republicans alike recognize that he is the proper man of all in the field for this office. "Regular democratic" tickets bearing the name of John S. Galbraith, for shei iff are in circulation. They were print ed at the regular democratic print shop, too. A. M. Valley announces himself as an independent candidate for road su pervisor in this district. Mr. W., if suc cessful at the polls, will make a good of ficer. There is a democratic split in Silver Bow, Yellowstone, Gallatin and Cho teau counties. The republicans are un ited and harmonious in every county in the territory. Private advices from Helena are to the effect that W. H. Hunt will make a strong race in Lewis and Clarke county. He will be elected if he can carry Cho teau county. The democratic and republican tickets in this county will both be printed "For the Constitution." If any person wish es to vote against the constitution, he should scratch out the word "For" and write "Against." The democrats have announced meet ings at the Shonkin Saturday night, Highwood Sunday evening, and this city Monday evening. As the RIVER PRESS is the only local paper that circu lates in the valleys mentioned, we give the "old party'' the benefit of this an nouncernent. The democrats are getting seriously alarmed and have braced up their cour age enough to decide on having a few meetings before the battle of the 4th prox. No use, boys; the voters have fully determined to elect the best men -and that will take in the whole of the republican ticket. In goinrg fromnl Philipsburg to Drum mond the carriage conveying Hon. Jos:. K. Toole was upet. and that gentleman received some painful injuries about the face. He appeared in Missoula next day "slightly disfigured, but still in the ring.7" This, however was nothing compared with the shaking up he will get on the 4th prox. at the hands of Hon. Hiram Knowles. The great turnout of people to hear the public speaking now daily going on in every county in Montana shows the general interest awakened in the terri torial campaign. The republicans have some of their best men on the stump as sisting Judge Knowlas in his canvass. Among those filling ap)pointments at various points are Col. Sanders, Marshal Botkin, Judge Blake, Col. Callaway, W. H. Hunt, and Messrs. Burleigh, Carter and Sahlinger. The canvass shows a well defined trend toward re publican success on delegate and local tickets. Keep thie ball moving, and victory wil be ours in November. Herald. TEST YOUR BAI¶G PODWDE TO-DAY!

To the Citizens of Choteau County : The delegates to the Democratic Coun ty Convention having chosen me their candidate for the office of sheriff; it ap pears to me that, having accepted the _jominiation, it would not be becoming in me as a member of the party to make my position the subject of bargain and sale.

I have offered no compromise, I have signed no Withdrawal, and I do not propose.to withdraw, anyxumors to the, contrary notwithstanding.
