THE DAILY ENTERPRISE.
Published every day except Sunday. WEIGHT & HENDBY, : Publishers. LIVINGSTON, MONT., JULY G, 1883. The Railroad Shops. If at any time our readers need their hearts cheered by the prospect of great labor-employing enterprises in Livingston, they should stroll down todard the site of the new round-house and machine shops. The buildings there in course of erection will convince them that in a few months a community of 500 or 600 men will be permanently employed in Livingston by the railroad alone. Tiie round-house is farther advanced toward completion than any other portion of the work; in fact, is the only building of the system which lises above the foundation. The ash-pit is almost finished, and the foundations for the sand-drying house and for the oil warehouse are being laid. The immense car-shops are not yet advanced beyond the foundations, but we are informed by Mr. Marston, the contractor for mason work, that during the month 500,000 brick will be laid in the walls of these buildings and the same amou it during each of the suc ceeding months until they are finished, about November 1st. The greater part of the brick required in the w r ork will come from the kilns near Livingston, though 100,000 are now contracte i for in Bil lings. At the west end of. the shop, 303 feet long, which is to be used as a black smith's shop and boiler works, a chimney 100 feet high is to be erected, and its fou idation is now laid many feet below the surface of the ground. Every portion of this system of machine and engine s'loj 8 * s ollt on a sca * e tliat indicates the pe; manent location of great railroad works at this point. I w ; are not entirely deceived by appe trance3 an 1 reports, Liv iniislon will be the chief railroad town on the line of the Northern Pacific between Brainerd and the Pacific. Town Incorporation. In the revised statates of M jntana, on page 15, of the laws passed at the twelfth session of the territorial legislature is an act pertaining to corporations municipal, by which is provided means for the in corporation of a town other than by ob taining special legislation for the pur pose. The modus operandi prescribed in the act may be briefly stated as follows: A map and survey of the proposed town is made aud sworn to by the surveyor; a census is taken of the district to be em braced in the municipality, also verified under oath ; such map, survey and census are displayed for public inspection at least five weeks before application is m id j for incorporation ; at least five resident tax payers of the proposed town shall give notice by publication in a local newspaper of their intention to apply for thj incor poration of tue town, and this notice must appear six weeks before application ; these preliminaries complied with the five tax payers may present a petition embodying their request, together with the map, cen sus and notice, all verified, to ' the judge of the district court for the county in which the town lies. The court will hear all persons interested either for or against incor] onticn and, if deemed ad visable, will order an electim to obtain the popular voice in regard to incorporat i lg said town. The proceedings thereafter are just tiie same as where a special act of the legislature has been granted. In less than thirty days from the issuance of the order, if not voted down, the town is incorporated and has a set of elected offi cers. By taking the benefit of this law in less than «ix months from now Livingston would be an incorporated city, enjoying all the privileges that accrue to that con dition. It does not seeii^ at all probable that any general objection would be raised to such a movement. No person ' who has the interests of \lie town at h3art would be found' upon the op posing side. Bozeman, Benton aqd Mis soula obtained special legisljatioft last winter for their incorporatioi have city governments. If quired such a measure, stands in greater need of The town is not a county seat, as and is practically without the county government. It is now sul ly large to make municipal govei desirable object, and is growing so that before the session of the in fhe winter of 1885 will be absolutely ncc citizens therefore make arrangements p obtain '■< - • -St * - and now [they re fvingston same, ley are, refits o icient ;nt a ipidly rture order at the earliest opportunity, namely, ; at the next term of court for G dlutiu county, which convenes not later than December. The preliminary steps had better l>e taken as soon as practicable, as court is liable to be called at a date earlier than the regular session, thus in case of procrastination rendering the requisite time for notice too short to be improved The Board of Trade should consider this matter at one of its earlier meetings and if in mrporutiwl be determined upon as a desirable arrangement take steps to carry out the statutory prolinvni vîo s. The White Sulphur _ priait» Road. Bridges over Bang-tail, Mud and Wil low creeks on the White Sulphur Springs read are completed and the money for tl e construction paid out oi the mud raLvu for that purpose by the citizens of Living ston. Myers Bros, have agreed to build .. bridge over Flathead creek uear then ranch, and tills, it is thought, will be all the bridging at present required in the Shields river valley. A little grading is required at various points and this tin e there will !;c m excellent road from Liv ington to Waite Sulphur Springs, with tie exception of a work urgently necessary near town. The creek ..t Benson's Land ing needs bridging and this is the only obstacle along the v\ 1 a le route with which fre g iters from the Springs find fault. Bridging this creek is a work which falls wn.iin the j trisdiction of the road supe. visor of this district and should be imim diately attended to. Very little road woil has been done in this district at the ex pease of the county and the supenis« r eanaot reasonably object to giving tins .vork his attention. It is a proper si.bjeci for congratulation that the White 8ulph r Springs road lias been improved so promptly by the citizens of Livingston. Not only because the work was urgent. y required but because it is an instance of promp.iCJ.ie w.th wn.ch the citizens of this t wa can prosecute and carry to a successful issue any needed public im provemc it. The work just accomplished is the precursior of much greater opera tions on tiie White Sulphur Springs route. A daily mail service, a telegraph line, and a ruilread will follow in regular order, and within a comparatively short time. The Park Branch. A portion of Winston Bros', tracklaying force, with their boarding cars and full equipment, arrived in Livingston yester day under W.O. Winston's personal super vision. Yesterday s tn.vals numbered a li tie less than one hundred men, but more will arrive during the next few days, as they can be relieved from work at the end of track beyond Helena. The force will be divided into the tracklaying gang, the bridge-builders, the surfacing crew, and the pile-driving outfit. Two pile drivers will be used and the work pushed so rapidly that from present prospects forty days work will permit trams to run to the terminus up the branch. Burr K. Field, a gentlem m of great ability in his profes sion, is assistant engineer on track and bridges, and Billy Smith will be engineer in charge at the end of track. There seems every reason to believe that the Park branch will be completed early in the month of Aug ist. Bill M'.'Dowell, a negro ravisher of Bowling Green, Missouri, w^s lynched.
