the daily enterprise
Published every day except Sunday. WBIGHT & HENDRY, : Punishers LIVINGSTON, MONT., JUNE 15, 188 3 A. rumor is afloat to-day that Winstm Broe. & Clark are about to place a strong traoklaying outfit at work on the Park branch. It is stated that beyond Missoula they are detained by the non-completion of a long trestle, and that the entorcec jwriod of waiting will be utilized upon their contrat between here and the Park. We cannot authenticate the story, uor have we been able to trace it to any one in authority. We know the tracklaying force will be delayed at several points in the vicinity of Missoula, where a great amount of trestle and bridge work is to be done, but we had not supposed that the delay would be sufficiently long to warrant a transfer of tiie outfit to this point. * * * On and after the first of July next al money-order postoffices will be authorized to issue postal notes in sums of $5 or less ou payment of a fee of three cents. This will be a great convenience to senders of small sums—fractions of a dollar— as in many such instances the purchase of a draft is as expensive as the remittance anc the transmission of currency is cumber some and unsafe. These postal notes will be payable in any money order office within three months from the date of issue, and after that limitation the holder can obtain par value by applying to the post office headquarters at Washington Another important postal law takes effect October 1st, of the present year. On ant after that date letter postage will be re duced from three to two cents per half ounce or fraction thereof. This will place our tax for the transmission of letters on a par with the penny postage of Great Britain. * * * Another chapter was added >to the Dukes-Nutt tragedy at Uniontown, Penn sylvania, on Wednesday evening .last •%ne months ago N. L. Dukes, a clever lawyer and member of the Pennsylvania legislature, seduced the daughter of Cap tain Nutt, an equally prominent citizen of Uniontown. Dukes had been paying his addresses to tte young woman in the role of betrothed husband. The father of the betrayed girl sought to have Dukes fulfil his promise of marriage, and in the con ference the latter shot and killed Nutt under circumstances of peculiar malig nity. Notwithstanding evidence tending clearly to convict, Dukes was acquitted by the jury which tried him, and has since been deporting himself in a manner calculated to outrage any lingering senti ment in his favor. Now comes a dispatch that James Nutt, a son of the murdered l ather and brother of the seduced sister has shot and killed this man Dukes. Five shots entered Dukes' body, aud he died instantly. Young Nutt gave himself up to the officers and is in jail. The misera ble story from'its inception to the latest tragical incident has attracted much at tention from the prominence of the char acters. There can be little doubt but what Dukes lias met with a deserved fate at the hands of the avenger of a sister's virtue and a father's blood. It remains to be seen if a jury of his countrymen wil| treat him as leniently as they did his vie tim. The Northern Pacific. A correspondent in the Cincinnati Com mercial says: "A great deal has been said about the country through which the several great transcontinental lines pass from the east. to the.Pacific coast. I K now personally of only two of them—the Union Pacific and the Northern Pacific. 1 have riden on horseback over the tern lory odjacent to the Union Pacific, from < >maha to Ogden, and I have also marched over nearly all the country along the line of the Northern Pacific, from 8t. Paul to Missoula. The truth is there is no com parison at all between the two sections. The Northern Pacific traverses not only the l^est country, but it is so much better than the Union Pacific that the commerce of the Northern Pacific will, I believe, in the near future be twice as great as that of tlie Union pacific. It is said Mr. Wm. M* Vanderbilt will seek a connection for his vast network of eastern roads over the best of the great continental lines, and in this event his choice can hardly fail to fall upon the Northern Pacific. The land grant of tlie Northern Pacific road amount* to 48,215,050 acres of land, and this alone is worth $100,000.000 at a fair valuation. Th« road-bed, rolling stock mid franchise >• J i vfë* JfffM a a of the road will be worth another $100, 000,000, and the mineral and timber on railroad lands, $50,000,000, making a total of $250,000,000—not a bad estate for one man to control."
