THE DAILY ENTERPRISE.
Published every day except Sunday. WEIGHT & HENDRY, : Publishers. LIVINGSTON, M.T, MARCH 17,1884 Entered at the postoffice in Livingston, M. T., as second class matter. The attorney general has issued a cir cular addressed to all United States attor neys and marshals calling attention to the statutory provisions for the regulation of the shipment of explosives and directing them to l>e diligent in their efforts to pre vent and punish infringements of those provisions. The circular is considered necessary on account of the alleged ship ment of dynamite from this country to foreign points for the purpose of commit ting heinous crimes. Buchanan's Bridge. "What prospect there was of getting a bridge across the Yellowstone here for use this summer seems last eb bing away—lias in fact disappeared altogether. The difficulty arises from the insatiate demands of the owners of the island. Buchanan offered them lree foot transportation over the bridge when completed, to pay any and all damages assessed by the com missioners for the county road over the island, and to fence the road on both sides, and in addition to pay them $300 for the privilege of going immediately upon the island to work and Jiaul material. This they refused, hut offered to give the privilege if they were paid $5 per year rent for the road, if the road were fenced on both sides and if they were allowed free transportation for themselves and their teams. It will be understood that the latter clause wonld place them in position to make easy con tracts to haul over all rock, sand, wood, etc. that might be produced on that side of the river and reduce the revenue of the bridge to a very low figure. Buchanan refused the terms, and now there is a deadlock that will last till the board of county commis sioners some time next summer or au tumn declares a county road over the island. Till then Buchanan can do nothing with his work as he wiU not be allowed on the island. Th« Cigar Factory. As soon as C. H. Manley receives necessary papers from the internal revenue department he will put four men at work in tho manufacture of cigars and hopes that his trade after a little time will warrant the employ ment of ten men. He should be able to command the entire wholesale cigar trade of the town and country around, as he is able to furnish cigars of equally good quality at less price than those of eastern manufacture, can al ways supply fresh goods, make cigars to suit the orders of customers and will sell by actual inspection of the goods instead of by samples. He is getting his store in nice shape and will make a fine display of goods in his line. In every way we regard Mr. Manley and his establishment as an important addition to the town. landt'i Summer Garden. A. Landt has begun work upon his summer garden in Riverside addition. A space 380 feet long and 160 feet wide fronting upon the river is being en closed with a high board fence. With in at one corner, will be an octagonal building 25 feet in diameter sur rounded by a verandah and surmount ed by a high flag staff. The ground will be leveled, gravelled walks laid out and seats provided, but the thick growth of noble trees will remain untouched. A bowling alley, swings and croquet ground will be prepared and probably a pond of water in the centre of the grounds. When com plete it will be a very pleasant resort. Religion* Notices. The Rev. Mr. Wallace of Billing^ has promised to come and preach to morrow evening in Bingham's hall at 7:30. Christians, without distinction of name, are most cordially invited Preaching this evening at Bingham's hftli at 7:30. Every one invited. AmeMor of Livingston. W. M. Wright has been appointed deputy assessor for the town of Liv ingston and will immediately enter upon his duties. We are glad to know that he has taken the office. He is a roan who attends closely to anything hs undertakes, is possessed of good business judgment and knows every dollar's worth of property in the town. As a consequence we wiU have a fairer and more complete assessment this year than last. T., cir the of to Funny Uncle Rufus. Chicago Herald: Rufus Hatch, of the Yellowstone Park Improvement company, said to-day that the reports that the employes of the company in the Park were half naked and half starved and that their pay was six months in arrears was somewhat ex aggerated. On the whole, he said, with a malicious twinkle of the eye, they are a good deal better off than the stockholders of the Northern Pacific or Oregon Transcontinental compan ies, particularly the latter. I don't consider that the Congregational 1st from Boston at the head of the com pany is a good guarantee that the stockholders will get what belongs to them. 1 am going to run up into New England in a few days and may run across the president of the Oregon Transcontinental, in fact, I don't know but what I'll call on him, and if he tackles me for my opinion of him there will be music and don't you for get it. He'll hear the angels sing, but lie'll never see them." Railroad Lands. The Northern Pacific officials say that an injurious report is being in dustriously circulated that the com pany does not stand by its resolution tion of 1879 to sell settlers railroad lands at $2.60 per acre. They say the order was intended to apply to settlers on unsurveyed lands who could not tell whether they were on railroad or government property. To such. 160 acres of land were to be given at the government pre-emption price of $2.50 per acre with 10 cents added to cover the cost of surveying and convejing. In all cases where settlers between the Missouri river and Puget Scuind, innocently located unsurveyed land and found that it belonged to the Northern Pacific, on proper proof of the facts, the price to be paid the company will be $2.60 per acre for 160 acres. The railroad officials further say the charges ef injustice toward settlers seem designed to create prejudice in congress against the rec ognition of the company's plain, legal and equitable right to retain its land grant rather than to remedy any real abuses.
