MANY NEW ENTERPRISES.
The Past Week a Profitable One in the History of Helena's Progress. Work Commenoed on Various Buildings and a New Opera House Assured. Openlag of Lawrence Street-Tho College Location-Craeker sad shirt FlotorleS. Enterprises now under way and which will be started in Helena in $he next ten days, indicate that the spring building boom, which the architects and builders predicted a month ago, is about to open, and that by June 1 there will be a great amount of work for the bricklayer, ear penter and others engaged in the building trades. Many people who have been put ting of contemplated improvements have finally concluded to build, and the result is that the architects, who have been taking it easy for two or three months, are now quite busy, with the prospect for an un usually large amount of work for the next two or three months. The fact that nine tenths of the houses vacant, two or three months ago, are now occupied, has prov en that the building business was not overdone last year, as many predicted, and this is shown in all the additions. In the Easterly a large number of houses are go ing up; on Broadway and on all the streets east the same is true, while on the west side piles of brick and lumber indicate that that side of town is going to grow this year, as it has in the past three. The contract has been let to Mr. G. S. Appleton for the construction of the west side school house, and work on it will com mence this week. The building will be one of the handsomest public structures in the county, and when finished will be one of the most complete school buildings in the west. It will occupy a commanding posi tion on the Kessler property, adjoining the Ames and Belleview additions. It will be three stories in height, with a frontage of seventy feet and a depth of fifty-five, sur mounted by a tall tower. The material used will be the same as that in the high school building now in course of construc tion, and when completed it will have cost $20,000. There are two ackee of. ground in the site, assuring plenty of play ground. Another west side enterprise on which work is new being pushed is the Stedman foundry. The foundation is being put in, and work on the building will be con tinued till it is completed. There are suffi cient funds to do this, and by the time the building is ready the additional subscrip tions necessary to equip it with a complete plant will be asked for, and with the inter east being shown on the enterprise, there is no doubt of a ready response by the solid men of the city. Visitors to the city who talk about its industries express surprise that such a plant as Mr. Stedman contem plates is not already in operation, and think it strange that Its great benefits to all classes of people have not been realized be fore. As small as the present works now are, they are profitable, and with the addi tional facilities the nroflts will be increased and employment given to 200 or 300 men. As a rule it generally falls to the lot of some half dozen men to carry the biggest part of the enterprises started in Helena which benefit every one, but in the case of the foundry. it is thought Messrs. iUroadwater and beligman, who are acting in the mat ter with Mr. Stednan, will find subscribers to the stock in people who refuse to go into other enterprises. The opera house question has been set tied, with the result that work on a play house which will be an honor to the city will be commenced within the next ten days. The location is the southeast corner of Lawrence and Main streets, $45,000 be ing paid It. H. Hale for the lot. Beyond the general details, plans for the building have not yet been decided upon, and will not be until some time thisweok. Mr. Maguire now has some half dozen designs under consideration, and when those interested in the matter have a final meeting the selec tion will be made. As' planned now the theater proper will be on Fuller avenue, with the principal entrance on Main street, an arcade running through the building. The front will probably be designed for stores, and when completed, which it is ex pected to be by November 1, no city in this section will have a handsomer or more con reniently arranged theater. Those inter ested with Mr. Maguire are among the sub stantial men of Helena, who took hold of the project with the determination to make it go, and after about forty days steady work have succeeded in doing all they con templated. In connection with the location of the opera house, the rmatter of the opening of Lawrence street from Main is being dis cussed. Four years ago the property own ere offered to sell the land necessary to the city for $1,500. The city refused the offer, went into court, spent $3.000 in lawyers' fees and expenses and the supreme court decided in favor of the owners. Last year the owners pooled and offered the prop erty to the city for $34,000, to be paid for in warrants running a year at five per cent, this being at the rate of about $500 a foot. The proposition was, if those discussing the matter are correct, passed by the coun cil, but died in committee. That the city should have a thoroughfare from one side of the city to the other there is no ques tion, and the Lawrence street opening offers the only present solution. Thirty-four thousand dollars is a good deal to spend for the property needed, but in a year after the opera house is finished it will take double that sum to buy it. As it is now, there is not a street running across the town. Bridge street stops at Clore, Broadway at Main, Grand at Main, Sixth avenue at Park, while Lawrence street runs from the foot-hills to Main, and by contin uing through Main would run ilnto Ninth and Tenth avenues and on to the eastern limits. The schorol trustees have donated a pioece of ground for the purpose, Georgeo B. Foote will give ai strip, and the expenditure of the money now would give an excellent thoroughfare at a lmuch less price than would have to be paid later. 'Thursday is the day fixed for opening the new bids for the location of the Congregn tional college, and the Helena gentlemen who have the matter in charge are doing excellent work. orne people are hard to convince of the benefits which will accrue to the city getting the college, but the com mitteo hope by hard work to make such a showing that Helena will secure the prize. It is not secured yet by any means, as both Great Falls aud Livingston have detor .arined to have it, and the people of those towns are taking hold of the matter very enthusinstieally. With the bid mad, by Livingston for the college in mind, it will Ie seen that Helena will have do some good work to outdo tile Park county city. In addition to the Congregational college, the Episcopalians and the Catholics also Gave tie question of establishing denomi nltional high-class institutions of learning In Helena. Each of these churches now have schlols here. lut feel the need of larger institunt ons, which, if properly an dowed now, would grow with the country and make the Montnnr colleges the leaders in thie section of the country. As in other enterprises one draws nuother, so with col rgeas. The Methoditer started the first univers.y, the C(ongregationalists are aunions to follow, and if Helena secures the latter instltation leading men* in the other denominations mentioned will make the effort to have their churehes do the same. The Catholaes already have the ground for their college, and with theis present prosperous seoeol as as a nucleus, would have an exoellent start. Mr. A. P. Ourtin is having plans made for a model building to be devoted to his retail trade. The location is on Grand street, next to the warehouse he put up last year, opposite the Helena hotel. He has received drawings showing the proposed front, and if they are accepted the bulding will be one of the handsomest in the city. It will have a frontage of seventy feet, with a depth of 100 feat, running from Grand to Breckin ridge streets and designed especially for his retail trade. Mr. Curtin's rapidly growing business demands large quarters with more modern conveniences, and the new building will give him the largest furniture estab lishment in the west, not excepting St. Paul or Minneapolis. Jas. B. Pearson, vice-president of the Mutual Benefit ,ife Insurance company, of New Jersey, was a visitor in Helena the past week. Mr. Pearson's company has a capital of $50.000,000, and is quite largely interested in Helena. In addition to look ing after the comnany's interests while here, Mr. Pearson also attended to invest ments made on his own aeoount and that of friends. He has a very high opinion both of the state as a whole and its leading cities, and evinces his faith in the future by frequent purchases in Helena. Before returning east he will visit the capital city again, Eastern capitalists who want to invest in Montana, and who believe a cracker fac tory would be a paying proposition, are giving Helena the first chance to seeure the location of such an enterprise. Mr. H. Bridenthal, of the Montana Milling com pany is doing the work to secure the plant for Helena and is meeting with much nsue cess. Asoutlinedthe proposition is to have either Butte or Helena raise $19,000 toward it, and the eastern people will put in the balance. If Helena does not care for it, Butte or Great Falls will be given the chance. The eastern men recognize the fact that Helena. owing to her central situ ation and advanced position, is the best location, and the Helena merchants believe such an institution would pay from the start. Such a factory would give employ ment to a number of men, and would keep a good many thousand dollars at home now sent to St. Paul, Omaha, Chicago and St. Louis. It is hoped that during the coming week the factory may be secured to Helena. Another manufacturing enterprise, which has passed beyond the stage of speculation, and is a fact, is a shirt factory. Reed, Craig & Smith company have taken the quarters formerly occupied by the Helena ('ab company, in the Gold block, and will start such a factory. Messrs. Craig and Smith have been in business in Helena for several years, and are quite well known as bright business men. Mr. Reed is an experienced shirt man ufacturer, having been engaged in the business in Milwaukee and also with Wilson Bros., of Chicago. The company will put in a complete and modern plant, and will give employment to a number of hands. The people of the city generally have materially encouraged the enterprise, and the prospects are bright, not only for a good city trade, but also for out of town business. The starting of the shirt factory is one of the many things which go to show that the city is growing, and if properly encouraged will materially aid in the ad vancement of Helena. Apropos to the subject of the factories, it has been suggested that lead pipe works would prove a paying investment in Helena. The raw material is here, there is a great demand for the manufactured product, and those conversant with the business say it would pay. A number of gentlemen who are interesting themselves in the subject, are gathering statistics, with the object of determining its feasibility. A company has been organized with a cap ital of $6,000 to sink the artesian well com menced by Dr. Brooke on the west side on the slope back of Wm. Muth's residenos. Those engaged in the undertaking believe they will accomplish the object with about 800 feet more of depth. The well is now down 1,000 feet. The finest publication ever issued by the Northern Pacific railroad has just been pub lished by that company. It is entitled, "A Ramble in Wonderland." and is devoted to the country traversed by the road. All the illustrations are works of art, and the let terpress leaves nothing to be desired. It is full of information and is not only a beati ful but a valuable publication. Montana scenes and famous places in the state are graphically portrayed and as an advertis ing medium for the whole stats it is ad mirable. The Homestake tunnel, on the Bntte air line is first shown, followed by a view of bilver Bow valley. A full page illustration of the hotel Broadwater, show ing the grounds, follows. Then there is a picture of the hotel office, the parlors, an exterior view of the natatorium, and also a full-page interior illustration. Then comes the Bi-Metallio and Granite Mountain mines and works. Agent Edgar expects a large consignment of the books this week, which can be had by parties desiring them. The Lockey and Leiser building, on Sixth avenue near Main street, has been com pleted, and each of the proprietors is now in possession of elegant quarters. The building has three stories, is 40xG0 feet, built of brick and stone, cost $20,000. and is one of the most complete in the city. All of the modern conveniences in the way of heating and lighting have been provided, and owing to this and its good location will prove a paying investment. The Helena Consolidated Water company is giving employment to a large number of men just now. The largest amount of work is being done on the liauser boule vard, where a main is being put in to ex tend to the Broadwater. It will take about thirty days to complete, and will connect with the big Ten Mile maiu. When coim pleted all the west side additions will have an abundant water supply, the two largest mains of the company being in that sec tion. Broadway is to be graded from the assay office to Montana avenue. The property owners have formed a pool, and will pay for the work. Wallace & Thornburg are getting out a number of plans for residences in Lenox. A number of deals in acre property are on, the tapis, one or two of which will be closed in a few days. Judge J. W. Eddy han purchased a house in the llellcviow addition. Manager hlaht is busily engaged getting things in shape to commence work on the Smelter addition.

A MINING LIlIGATION, Minah Consolidated Company Suing Briscoe for the Possession of Two Claims. The Northern Paciflo Injunction Against the City of Helena is Dissolved. Another Defendant Convicted in the United States Cirenlt Court for Selling Whisky to Indians. One of the most interesting and impor tant cases now on trial in the United States circuit court is that of the Minah Consoli dated Mining company against J. O. Bris coe and Anna E. Briscoe. The plaintiff's side of the suit, as presented by its com plaint, is that it is a corporation organized under the laws of Great Britain. That on March 6, 1890, the defendants were the owners of the Iron Dollar and Annie B. lodes in Colorado district, Jefferson county. The defendants sold the claims to the Minah Consolidated Mining company for $100,000, giving a warranty deed. On the 12th of last September it is alleged that the defendants took possession of the property without right, and ejected J. C. Peters, the agent of the company. The plaintiff asks to be restored to the possession of the claims, $20,-. 000 damages for withholding the possession and $50,000 the amount of the profits of the mine while the defendants have been in possession. To this the de fendants answer and deny that they were on March 6 or ever since have been seized in fee of the claims, and deny that they de livered possession to the plaintiffs or any other person. They also deny that they took possession of the property, as alleged by the plaintiffs, without right or title. JuJuaction Dissolved. The injunction against the city of Helena obtained by the Northern Pacific Railroad company a few days ago was dissolved in the district court yesterday on motion of the company's attorneys, Cullen, Sanders & Shelton. C. W. Cannon, Mrs. Cannon and Henry Cannon have been made intervenors in the suit and will hereafter defend it. The railroad company still remains in possession of the land seized by it last Sunday night. FJectment. J. S. M. Neill and A. J. Davidson, through their attorney, Hon. R. B. Smith, filed a suit yesterday in the district court against Alfred B. Snell et ux to recover possession of lots 22 and 23, block 418, of the original townsite of Helena. Sold Whisky to Indians. United States Attorney Weed succeeded yesterday in convicting another defendant of selling whisky to Indians, on the testi mony of Four Horns and several other In dians. The offence was committed last winter on the Blackfoot reservation, in northern Montana. Not one of the prison ors indicted on these charges have been ac quitted. In one case the jury disagreed and the defendant will be tried again on the 26th inst. There are six more prison ers in the county jail now awaiting trial under indictments for selling whisky. Wil liams, who was found guilty yesterday, will be sentenced sometime during the week. Other United States Cases. St. Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba Rail way company vs. J. D. Taylor.
