WILL BUILD AT ONCE I Plans for New Garage Completed and 1 Contract Will Probably be Let To day-Adds Another Building to East Montana Avenue. Billings is right up with the metro politan procession. The auto is fast replacing the cab in the larger cities of the land and within three months at the farthest it will be possible to take a taxicab anywhere in Billings for the Enterprise Automobile Com pany, a new concern which is headed by J. Collins West, has placed an or der with the Buick Automobile com pany for six of their latest designs of "taxis" and the machines will be de livered and put in use at the earliest possible date. The coming of the taxicab to Bill ings marks but another step in the growth of Billings from a country town to a modern city. The machines will be operated here as in all large cities; there will be a minimum charge for the service of the vehicle and when the distance traversed ex ceeds that charge the fare will be paid by the mile. It is said, however, that the minimum charge will be much less here than in other places and that the taxicabs will enter into active com petition with the hack and cab com panies of the city. The taxicabs will be of the style in use in all large cities, a limosine body being used and re cording instruments showing the dis tance traversed being placed in the closed portion of the machine. The plans and specifications for the new auto garage of the Enterprise Auto company, which have been pre pared by Curtis C. Oehme, are com plete and are in the hands of the con tractors. It is expected that bids for the work will be in this evening or to morrow and that the contract for the building can be let tomorrow. :I possible the work will be started at once as there will be no basement un der the building it is hoped that work on the walls can be completed before the cold weather sets in. The plans call for a building 130 by 50 feet, two stories in height and con structed of Fromberg pressed brick with Columbus sandstone trimmings. The building will stand on the corner of Twenty-third and Montana avenue and will aid materially in the im provement of lower Montana ave. and of the blocks directly adjacent to the new depot. The main entrance to the building will be on Montana avenue and will be through a massive stone arch flanked by ornamental lamps of hammered bronze. The first floor will be devot e ed exclusively to storage purposes and will be entirely clear of all posts and obstructions, the second floor being suspended from the roof which is in - turn held up by heavy steel trusses. r In one corner of the immense room n will be a concrete wash rack, large v enough to accomodate two or more s machines at a time, and in the oppo s site corner will be an elevator for the purpose or hoisting machine from y the first to the second floor. The second floor of the building will B be devoted to a large machine shop e and a display room where the firm d will keep the cars it has for sale. It was the intention of the company at first not to conduct a repair shop in connection with the garage but this plan has been changed and a large repair and paint shop will be installed. There will also be a club room on the second floor where auto parties may rest and which will be provided with ample bath and toilet rooms where the stains of travel may be I washed away.

TROPHY CUP FOR L DRY LAND FRUIT Chamber of Commerce of Spokane Offer for Best Display of Apples. MANY WILL CONTEST Orchards Raised Without Irrigation Art not Infrequent and Apply Show City Seeks to Aid Congress by Gen erous Premium. From Thursday's Daily. Late yesterday afternoon the prem ium committee of the Dry Farming congress received a telegram from the Spokane Chamber of Commerce announcing that that body would give a handsome trophy cup for the ,best display of apples raised without irri gation made at the Dry Farming con gress. The display is to consist of five boxes of any variety of winter apple and although the offer is posted a trifle late it is believed that there will be a goodly number of contestants who will enter the lists for the Spo kane cup. There are many orchards that are raised without irrigation, and E it is felt that a good display of dry land fruit can be brought out by the offer of the cup. Spokane is coming to Billings for the purpose of getting the next con gress and the Chamber of Commerce of that city is leaving no stone un turned in its efforts along that line. The offer of the cup for dry land ap ples will not only interest exhibitors here in the coming apple show at Spo kane but it will go to show that the Spokane people are there with the goods and are anxious to have the next meeting held in their city. t SPECIAL CARS TO CROWD THE YARDS Extra Police Will Be Appointed to Patrol Railroad Yards Dur t Ing Congress. d The matter of properly oaring for the largest number of special cars w hich will be brought to this city y during the week of the Dry Farming congress and which will be used for the greater part as quarters for dele e gates during the sessions of the con gress is beginning to be somewhat of a puzzle for the Northern Pacific. The passenger yards are at best none too large and from present indica tions there will be no less than 30 or 40 Pullmans and private cars side tracked here next week, which will, to say the least, bring about a rather conjested state of affairs. If the num ber of private cars which are being booked for Billings next week contin ues at the present rate it ,will be necessary to lay a number of tempo rary tracks on which the cars can be switched. Some 12 cars are coming over the Great Northern, exclusive of Presi dent Hill's train of at least seven pri s vate cars. The Canadian Pacific plans k to send several carload delegations, n Livingston, Miles City, Wibaux, Hele Lt na, Spokane and many other nearby cities will send their delegations in private cars and the bookings on the Northern Pacific and Burlington are a beginning to pile up in an unexpected manner.
