Ohoteau Lodge, No. 11, I. . 0. F.
A regular meeting of the above Lodge will be held on Wednesday evening of each week, at their lodge oom in this city. Sojourning brothers are cordially invited to attend. CHAS. CRAWFORD, N. G. JoHN F. MuRPHY, Secretary. BOOfMING BILLINGS. The Comlng Metropolis of the Yellow stone Valley Located. Knowing ones have understood for some time that Coulson as at present located was not likely to be the railroad metropolis of that section. In the first place the townsite is owned by Mr. Alderson and it is not likely that the railroad company would assist in building up a town on somebody else's land when they had plenty of "odd sections," and as favorably located, in the same vicinity. Again Coulson was not properly located to become the junction of the Benton branch of the Northern Pacific, a consideration powerful enough in itself to warrant the doom of that ambitious burg-and its decline will probably be as rapid as its growth. The grand scheme outlined in these columns two weeks ago in regard to the purchase by H. Clark and other eastern capitalists of the Clark's Fork bottom and the proposed found ing of a metropolis is already being carried into effect. The proposed town has been located above Coulson, at a point favorable for starting the Benton branch, and judging by the following excerpt from the Bismarck 2ribune is already enjoying a substantial boom: "The boom in Billings, the new town on the Yellowstone division of the Northern Pacific railway and the first crossing of the Yellowstone river, still continues. It has been an open secret for many years that it was President Billings' desire that one of the most extensive towns on the river should bear his name and it was at his request that the name Coulson was changed to Billings. He has agreed to erect in the town a $50,000 seminary and to give other large sums to church and school organizations. The rail way company propose to erect at this point large shops, build extensive stock-yards and to make it the central point of their trans continental line. Col.Clough, assistant chief engineer, lett Miles City yesterday for Bil lings to start the survey party on the proposed line from Billings to Benton, through the famous Maginnis gold region. This road will be commenced as soon as the Northern Pacific reaches Billings, which will be about July 1st. Samuel Wilkinson, treasurer of the Northern Pacific company, telegraphed to-day for $4,000 worth of lots in the new town, he having already secured $5,000 worth of land. Agent Newport and Assistant General Manager Cross are both more or less interested, which indicates something more than ordinary in the prospects of Billings. Col. Benton and E. P. Wells arrived to-day and are purchasing a large number, but are refused any but scattering lots. With the backing the new town seems to have and the famous Clark Fork mines near by many pre dict a town of 10,000 inhabitants in three years where now there is but one building." Suits to Order.
