THE DAILY ENTERPRISE.
Published every day excel t Sunday. WEIGHT & HE3TDEY, i Publisher!:. LIVINGSTON, MONT., JULY 3 1883. Ii is witli a great deal of fcatis action tlmt we chronicle th » results oi tiie pro ; ccedin«-» in Wetzstcin's h ill last eve ling. O A Board of Trade has been termed, n Livingston and is now in good working conditi' n, with a membership o. silxmt thirtv-tive live, enterprising business men. The o; Heers elected are men esp cmi y adapted to their respective [lositions. A\ e believe e^eli one of t.iem will en ljavor to forward the interests of Livingston by a strict attention to their duties as officers of the Board of Trade. With the members of the Board working together harmonious ly, and ever with the interest of the com munity as a first consideration, we fe' 1 that an important advance has been made toward placing Livingston in >h » front rank of northwestern cities. Last Saturday the que. t ou of wliether Bismarck should be the capital of Da kota or not trembled in the balance. A meeting of local capitalists war called on the evening previous for the purpose of raising the sum of $100,000 which the city, or rather a few of its citizens had pledged themselves to pay the territory providing the capital was located there. Well, a large number of the said capital ists—most of whom had become such by reason of the capital boom—with one accord began to make excuse. The most unsound and trivial reaious were urged by thesif skinflints as valid causes why they should not contribute. Others offered to chip in sums which, to the amount required, were but as drops in the ocean. The Tribune next morning seri ously contemplated the possibility of the bid for the capital being withdrawn and the name of Bismarck becoming a synonym for untrustwoithiness. But the danger was averted. Bismarck real estate owners all over the Union were communi cated with by telegraph and came to tin front with contributions of greater or les amounts. Hon. Frederick Billings, wh has doue so much for our neighboring town, which bears his name, and win owns a large tract of land adjoining Bi» marck put up $5,000 toward the capita fund. By such aid, and that of citizen who were ill able to bear the draft, tin more public-spirited monied men of Bi marck were able to make up the require» sum and the difficulty was thus »? mounted. But the incident forms a strik ing illustration of the tendencies of a ce; tain class of men in the new' w'est. W refer t > th >33 wlu more by bei ug in th right place at the right time, rather thaï by their own g<xxi management have lit come wealthy, and who are yet neve willing to assist an enterprise which, i consùiriiùated, is sure to improve theii fortuites; They are only willing to profi; bv thc%oprove meats made by others. Engineer A. P. Mit -hell, who waf drowned in the Missoua last Tuesday, was crossing the river in a fdjflry boat with two coin]»anions when the boat capsized and the whole party was precipitated into the water. Mitchell was seen breasting the current and apparently swim min« easily for the shore, but suddenly he dis t ppeared beneath the surface and has no' since been seen. It is supposed that hr was ciuight by some sudden whirl of the treacherous current and swept under. The Park Branch. Five miles of track have been laid o: the Park branch, ond henceforth work L to go forward very rapidly. On Wednes day there will arfive on the scene a foret sufficient to lay iron at the rate of from ; mile to a mile and a half per day.. The outfit will be taken from Winston's fcrct now working beyond Helena, w here the grade through Mullan pass over the tunnel is not sufficiently advanced to allow of the advance of track-layiug at the regular rate and as a consequence part o' the outfit will be transferred to this point. The grade is now ready to receive the iron along a distance of thirty-threj miles al>ove the canyon, and it is believed that there will be nothing to retard tracklaying until the terminus of the branch is reached and the road completed. The iron used will be brought from the Mis souri division of the Miin line west of Mandan, where steel raih are being sub stituted for those of iron now in use along tlmt part of the road. A strong force of men are now at work in that locality re moving tjjie old rails and substituting the new oues at the rate o*' one and a hal miles daily, and the oi l iron will be brought here as fast as available. . ; e a 1 WHOLESALER OF Milwaukee Beer!
