Now it is -in posltion to put iup the new brick and stone building described and add an cther beautiful structure to the city. BUTTE'S BUILDING ACTIVITY There is perhaps no other clasrs of men l htter able to watch the progress and development of a town than heal estate men, and the real estate men of IButte leak encouragingly of local conditions. J. E. Swindlehurst, one of the prorlin rnt real estate agents of the city, said ysrterday: "While there sla not a large amount of activity In contracting and building ciIr r'ics this fact is not significant. "Men who are in postions to know, are. not at all backward In investing their ironey and this is evidenced by the large bIitlidings in process of e'rection In the heart of the city. "'lutte Is not now half the city that it will some day become. "The town is building towards the ~,luth and west, but the .rect!on of the frdieral building on North Ml.n :itr'et \ Ill do much towards enhlncing tlhe va!lle of property north of Park street. "As for Montana In general, no tstate In tih' union has brighte'r prospectsI.r'' for ald v;i ircem(en t. "'T'here is a steady Incrreasel ih poplrli tion due largely to the farcit that Estl , tn farmers, realizing that thle ri-ch ranch lands of Montana afford ,itrrabhtle lo.tl tionsI, are in nmigratic g 'in the , riwded distrlcts of the E rrat.
