Smalley, writi ig under date of May 16th to his paper, The Northwest •peaks thus of Livingston and its surround ing of mountain scenery : "Beyond the smiling green valley and the winding, glistening river, lise white, gigantic masses of mountains. These snowy ranges •re loftv, and in some conditions of the atmosphere so ethereal, that the surprise of the eastern tourist, who had never seen high mountains before, was quite natural Standing on the platform of a Pudn.an car, going up the valley, his eye caught the white, gleuning bulwark on the west ern horizon. "Conductor, those clouds look very much like mountains," he said. "Clouds; what.louds?" replied the con ductor, looking at the clear, blue sky. «"Out there; just ahead of us." "Those are not clouds; they are mountains at the head of the valley." "Good gracious !" exclaimed the traveler, who had got bis conception of möuntains from the Alle ghanies or the Adirondack», "those white things way up in the sky, mountains? Well, well, this is worth coming all the ways frpm New York to see." Livingston, the new town at the gate way of the Lower canyon of the Yellow stone, has a beautiful situation on a broad, green plateau, in face of the towering peaks first seen from the railroad nearly a hundred miles away down the valley. Here the railroad leaves the river and be gins the ascent of the Belt range, and from here diverges the National Park branch, now under construction, and to be com pleted in July. Livingston is now in the secondary stage of growth, having passed through the shack and shanty period, and begun the building of permanent struc tures. A long street of huts and hovels, grotesque in their rudeness, and inhabited by the driftwood of frontier society which float in advance of a railroad, still re mains, but is hidden from the track by hundridi of smart frame buildings, the growth of the pa 4 two months. The people who have established themselves in this town count upon it speedily be coming a place o. importance. The rail road shops will give it a permanent popu laden of 1,500, and the coal mines and the limestone ledge.; near by, together w.th the tourist travel to the Park and the cattle ranches in the hills, ought to add at least as many mere. A large hotel will soon be built; in the meantime there are soveral small ones, at which tourists, hunters and anglers for trout will And cuinfortable frontier accommodations. the Fatal Shooting: at Maiden. A brief dispatch from Maiden in the Mdginuis mln.ug district states that ou Fri day last Joe Doane shot two men killing one instantly and fatally wounding Bobby Graham. Graham is a gambler and sport ing character well known io all the Yel lowstone towns, as well as all over the Territory. Doane tended bar in Denny Driscoll's saloon at Muir City, last winter, as is also wjU known iu sporting circles. During the winter months of 1882 Gra ham and Doane were partners at Maiden in the livery business, and it is stated par ted with a qu-trrel, a résumai of which may have led to the present affray. The name of the man instantly kilied was not stated. Bobby had received a shot through t <e bowels ahd his death was momentarily exacted at tlie time the dispitdh was •ut. _ _ * Livtsooton, Mont., July 15,'83. Editor Enterprise : In reply to the letter which appeared in the Enterprise from W. D. Smith, 1 would aay in defence of my first state ment regarding what Smith said of the prisoner Forbes, that when coming from Texas, Smith was about to have trouble with another party, and Forbes, who was in Smith's company, said, "If there is any trouble let me have a hand in it." This is what Smith told me, and he also said that all the men on the trail w&*c afraid of Forbes, as they knew he was ready to shoot. Forbes as much as admitted what he had done in conversation with one of the best citizens of this country, mid asked where he could get an attorney.
