THE DAILY ENTERPRISE.
Published every day except Sunday. WEIGHT & HfiNDEY, : Publishers. LIVINGSTON, MONT., JULY 7, ms. Building Note». Still the building boom inaugurated in Livingston some months ago goes forward without change, except that the class of erections continually improves in charac ter as the season advances. We have seen many new towns in the northwest but in none of like age with Livingston have we 62cn so many handsome business blocks as here, or so substantial a class of build ings throughout. This observation applies Btrictly to the present and will be much more forcible when, in a few weeks, we will have a number of brick blocks fin ished or advancing closely toward com pletion. In the business portion of the town on Park street H. Frank is getting brick and lumber on the ground for the erection of his store, the foundation of which has been laid for several weeks. Work has been delayed by trouble in obtaining brick, but early next week the walls will begin to rise. On the lot adjoining the Merchants Hotel excavations were begun yesterday for the cellar of a building to be erected immediately by I. Orschel & Bro. It will be ol brick 24x70 feet and two stories high. Of Douglas & Weirick's two handsome buildings one is now receiving the shelv ing and other fixtures for the owners' stock of drugs, to be opened about July 10th. The other building having been begun later is not so far advanced, but work upon it is being pushed as rapidly as possible. The upper stories of both will be used as offices. The fine block occupie 1 1 y Wetzstein & Co. is about complete and the firm are now moving in their stock of wholesale liquors, and are already making a fine dis play, though but a portion of their goods has arrived. The upper story of the building, known as Wetzstein's hall, is finished and Mr. Wetzstein informs us that he has already received a liberal pro posal for its rental by ths mon h, the lessee to sublet to entertainments, but he prefers to rtmiin proprietor of the hall himself. On the corner of Park and Second streets cards appear asking bids for the erection of the First National Bank building. Bids will be received until to-night, and after the contract is awarded work on the elegant block will go forward at once. On Second street the finishing touches are being given to the Badger State beer hall, which, when painted and furnished, will be a handsome establishment. Far ther down the street Mason & Doty are putting an addition to their building, which will about double its size. The two-story building near the foot of the street is nearly finished, and will rank with the best buildings in town. On Alain street little work is going on just at present, except the continual tendency of propsrty owners along this fine business street to improve the appearance of their buildings by the use of paint Wooden awnings are also being put up, though it is questionable whether they add to the appearance of the street. A fine residence building is in course of erection at the foot of ihe street, and C. M. Gilbert is building an addition to his store. The grading has been completed for Nye & Co.'s brick building next the bank, and it is understood that work will go forward very soon. Carver & Co. have also 6taked off the ground for the foundation of their proposed building, to be erected at an early date. Mr. Babson, of the firm of E. R. Dean & Co., has the improve rnents on his building complete, and is moving in their ttock of wholesale liquors and cigars—a stock which he assures us witl be second to none in the city. On B street the only building at pres ent in progress is that of th * stone jail The iron-grated window casings Are now being put in, and the walla are going up as rapidly as the character of the work will admit. Of residences now being erected it is impossible to obtain a record. Neat, anc in many cases elegant, cottages are spring fl 111 (ill »m J __• ing up in aU the additions and in the orig inal town site. The work of residence building, hitherto in a measure neglected, is now a leading feature of town improve ments. A. W. Porter is erecting a houre north of the track me* soring 22x40. and intended for his own oecnpaacy; but thh is only one of the numerous residences in different parts of the town and its suburbs, upon which work is going toward. Be side these we learn of it lés* a denen ten ements, the contracts for which are Jet but not yet eoferoi upo* 'Y; We have referred to the immense work now going forward on the railroad com pany's ground in other issues, and shall make no present description of it. Liv ingston is growing very rapidly—^o rap idly and so substintiuliy withal that we lielieve the town's size, age and architectu ral character, taken altogether, are without parallel in the history of western growth. rjlüE STAG SALOON, DE ARDOR F F & WKLBORN.
