THE • DAILY ENTERPRISE
Published every day except Sunday. BRIGHT & HENDRY, : Publishers. LIVINGSTON, M. T„ SEPT. 5, 1883. Delegate Maginnis publishes in a late issue of the Helena Independent a letter addressed to his late political opponent, Alex. C. Botkin in which he informs that gentleman that in the matter of the pend ing election contest he shall take no evi dence. but is content to abide by the de cision of Congress upon the testimony produced by Botkin. He has learned from ills attorney who attended the exam inations conducted by.Mr. Botkin, that the latter failed to impeach any single voter and is therefore content to go before Con gress without any testimony in rebuttal. Marshal Botkin replies through the col umns of the Herald in a letter which im peaches Major Maginnis of every elect or al offence in the catalogue, and while admit ting liis doubts regarding the possibilities of unseating the delegate by vote of the House of Representatives, challenges him to appear before a public audience to dis cuss and decide the question of who is en titled to be the delegate from Montana. It is not at all probable that any such arrang ment will be entered into by Major Ma ginnis. No one w ould expect him to sub mit so important a matter to the decision of a heterogeneous audience. The law s of the United States provide a method for the final settlement of the question aud in justice to his supporters, Magi ms has no right to depart therefrom for a decision. With all due respect for the two gentlemen we cannot but consider it in poor taste lor either of them to parade their names in the public press in a correspondence which is apparently personal. The day when mutual recrimination will count in the public mind is, if ever, at election sea sons but not just at present. MONTANA NEWS. Forty-six real estate sales were made in Helena in August, aggregat ing $8'J,095. Don 0. Spaulding's house and farm buildings, on Meadow creek, Madison county, were burned last Thursday morning. Black Hills papers say that the cattle drive this year is ahead of any thing known before in the history of the west. At Pioneer last week the wife of a man named Wm. Downey took their two infant children and eloped with a scamp named Philip Johnson. Large fleets of prairie schooners sail through Yankton daily, with their crews westward bound, many of them coming to Montana and the far west. One or two young men, strangers, camped in Ruby valley last week on their way to the National Park and one of them was accidently shot with his own revolver. It is feared that lie cannot live. At the Big Hole battle ground the bones of the soldiers and Indians are bleaching on the surface of the ground and it issuggested that a government appropriation for their burial would have answered a better purpose than the erection of a monument. Chateau county proposes to be large • ly represented at the Territorial fair and has appointed a committee to see that her exhibit is well displayed. They also propose to have a medicine talk with President Villard about building a branch of the Northern Pa cific. The cattle men along Stinking Water have raised $750 towards a bridge across that river, and wii maka it 81,000. The Northern Pa cific will only contribute $500. and Billings will have to give the remain ing $500. The object in building the bridge is so that Wyoming cattle may be brought to the Northern Pacific for shipment east. Cal fee 's views of the National Park aud other exquisite bite of Montana s *enery are, it is said, to be exhibited in Montana, on the Pacific coisfe, and u the eastern states during the com Ing fall and winter. A gentleman ton vendant with Montana's history wiil accompany the exhibition and lecture upon the country. Harry Horr will furnish the chin music, it is un durefood. day a train on the North the gido of to body of a young squaw, whose neck was incircled by a blood red handker - chief, giving it the* appearance of be ing covered with blood. On stating that she wanted to kill herself, the kind-hearted conductor took her on his train and carried her to the next station, five miles distant. When she stepped off the train lier despair left her. and applying her outstretched thumb and finger to lier nose, she ex pressed the opinion that an Indian squaw was a heap smarter than the pale-faced brave who owned the smoke wagon.—Dillon Tribune. ft ft o erxv eâ a a PIONEER Harness Î Main Stp.eet, Opposite Bank.

Ail wishing residence lots, come and investigate for yourselves before purchasing elsewhere, and buy only first-class property. Be sure and do not buy property which will separate you from the best part of the town, and those who have examined the Park and Palace Additions acknowledge them to be far superior to all for residences. We have already sold lots to persons who will build immediately, and iu some instances bring their families. We aim to constantly keep houses for sale and rent, thus to accommodate those who wish to go to housekeeping in great haste and not having time to build. Wears selling houses very cheap, and wish those who anticipate buying would carefully examine ours, and see for themselves we do not pre varicate. REFERENCES: A. 0. Slaughter. Banker, Chicago; 0.
