Livingston surprises even her most ardent friends by her marvelous j growth. It is almost impossible to ! prognosticate the giowth of a new town during the first year of its exist ence, but there were few, if any, six months ago, who would have risked their reputation for good judgment by predicting tnat thus early in the season Livingston would have attain ed her present size. Not merely the number of buildings challenges sur prised admiration, but the proportion of them that belong to a class fitted to grace any city, is equally a source of remark from all visitors. The ac knowledgement by the correspondent of the Pioneer Press that "Livingston presents more evidences of solid pros perity and rapid growth than any new town on the line" is the pithy state ment of an actual truth, and from so consenative paper as that in which it appeared, constitutes a record of which vve may well feel proud. And the work still goes forward. It is safe to say that more buildings are now in course or erection, or are being re modeled and improved, in Livingston than at any previous time in the town's short history. The greater port on of the work is on Park street, which will soon present an appear ance that will compare favorably with the business avenue of any western town. F. W., Porter's building, near the corner of Second, is nearly com plete, and will shortly be taken charge of by its lessee, Col. Eldridge. The First National block is advancing very rapidly, considering the character of its structure. One of the basement walls of the bank building proper has advanced to a Height of about ten feet of solid stone and the founda tions of the whole block are well under way. Thus far nothing but stone has been used, but brick will form the superstructure of two of the buildings, while I he other will be of wood. A little farther down the street the excavations for the brick build ings to be built by G. II. Carver and Major Pease are completed and work upon the basement walls has begun. Orschel's two story brick block, ad joining, is receiving shelving and gen eral interior finish, and will be ready for occupation ih a few days. The two mick buildings owned by Henry F.ank and Major Pease, in the same block, are almost completed Next them, ILggius & Hanley are ad ling a second story to their wooden building, which when finished will be one of the largest in town. Main street has made such wonder ful strides lately that it is difficult to make a record of all the recent im provements. On the east side, from Park steeet, down a distance of over three blocks, every lot is occupied with the exception of three, and it is not improbable that these will be built upon before winter. E. II. Dean & Co.'s brick building, next be low the corner of Park, is going for ward as rapidly as a strong force of workmen can rush it. A short dis tance below. S. II. Phelps is putting up a neat frame building to be used as a restaurant. The lot between the Brewery saloon and the postuffice, vacant till a few days ago, is now oc cupied by three buildings. Two of them were moved from the old town and the third is being built by Brown & Sax. N. C, Matth iessen is making a considerable addition to his store in this block to make room for the stor age of an increased stock. On the corner below, the proprietors of tha St. Louis Beer Hall have erected a building 25x70, and have it nearly ready for occupancy. The west side of Main is receiving its share of the l uilding and business boom that be longs to the whole street. Metcalf, & Co. have moved into their new livery stable at the lower end, and near it Chezum & Brown have moved their building from Clark street and havo enlarged and improved it. A two story addition is being erected in front of the New York house, and several small buildings have appeared along the lower blocks of the street, some newly built, others moved from else whére to the more advantageous loca tion. Next Kreiger's building, Mn Dodson's brick block is beginning to _ assume form, and will be whçn com • ..... plete one of the finest structures in the town. A little further up the street the Bunk of Livingston has nearly completed a very neat and handsome frame building for tempora ry occupancy during the coming win ter. 0 Elsewhere around the town no par ticular locality is enjoying great pres ent growth, though buildings are be ing constantly erected in every direc tion. The Methodist church 32x55 feet in foundation measurment, has been enclosed and is now being roofed. It bids fair to be, when complete, a very handsome edifice, and one of which the town may he proud. Down on Riverside addition Landt & Ritter's brewery is going forward with all speed. It is at present 18x70 feet, ar ranged so that both the cellar and superstructure may be enlarged with little trouble. It will begin supply ing Livingston with home manufac tured beer about the first of May next. Of minor improvements in progress the list is already large and will in crease as the approach of winter ren ders them necessary. MONTANA NEWS. The company that owns the White Sulphur Springs property has decided not to rent it. James Grady has been appointed a deputy sheriff of Yellowstone couuty, vice Tom Wheeler, resigned. The stockmen of the Musselshell are very much pleased with their move— to drive their cattle from the upper Musselshell range. We were shown some specimens of silver ore from Neihart a few days ago that were reported to assay over £5,000 per ton.—Husbandman. The Buffalo (Wyo.) Echo says that the prospectors who are up on the Big Horn, keep very close mouths when down for provisions. The supposition is that they have struck something. One hundred cattle belonging to Otto Franc, while being driven to ward the railroad from their Wyoming range, stampeded over a precipice into the Stinking Water river a:id were killed. A syndicate of St. Paul capitalists, associated with two or three local men, have purchased several hundred lots in Fort Benton, paying therefor 830,000. The people of the town look upon this deal as the beginning of a great boom. A. D. Potter, a Butte citizen, has disappeared, and it is unknown wheth er he has been foully dealt with or just skipped out. Butte people have a fashion of helping out the newspa pers by mysteriously absenting them selves from town. NEWS NOTES. Hugh Hastings, editor .of the New York Commericial Advertiser,is dead. The Bannack Indians in Idaho are making trouble for prospectors and miners, Yellow fevei^n prevailing at Guay mas, Ilermosillo, Sonora, Mazatlan ond other Pacific coast towns.

He thinks a Republican president will be elected next year.
