TOURISTS CARRIED TO ANY PLACE. The Cheapest and Bc.st Equipped Livery in Town. U. E. SJfYDER, P.-op. of of of of Assignment of the Montana Lumber Com pany. This morning a telegram was re ceived bv J. E. Mintie from Billings saying that the Montana Lumber com pany had on Saturday last assigned all its property for the benefit of its creditors to Harry Allen, the com pany's book-keeper at the head office in Billings. This intelligence was a great surprise to everyone in Livings ton. and as well a source of universal regret. The M. L. company has been an important factor in the work of building Livingston; its policy of as sisting by giving credit for stock al most every person who wished to erect buildings, has gone far to assist in making a large town and a good class of buildings, but that same poli cy has doubtless contributed largely to the company's present embarrass ment. in that it has been easy with its creditors and has not forced its col lections, thus depriving itself of the ready money needed to pay bills and replenish stock. MR. MINTIE'SSTATEMENT. F. L. Mintie, secrectaiy and treas urer of the company and its manager at Livingston, returned from Billings tliis afternoon, and said to our repor ter; **I was summoned by telegram on Sati t lay to come immediately to Billings. Not knowing for what I was wanted, I w'ent. Arrived there I found that in tiie absence of Mr. Hath - way, II. Clark & Co., of Billings, had, without the slightest warning, at tached us for a bill of S'1.200 for sup plies furnished our mills about 80 days ago. We then learned that certain stories had been given to C. N. Nel son A Co., our heaviest St. Paul credi tors. which might make them follow' with an attachment. We were short of ready cash. I was asked by the other directors it I could raise some in Livingston. I said it could be done but I would not force our debtors here. We could have borrowed money for thirty days to pay the pressing claims but that would have helped us but little, and we therefore concluded to assign and give ourselves a little time to make our collections, protect our own debtors, pay our bills and go ahead after thirty or sixty days in better shape than over. By so doing attach ments would be prevented and our yards and mills would be kept free in the hands of the assignee. This we did. Our liabilities are a little less thad $22,000; our total assests are $115,000 over and above the company's stock. We therefore have $5 to pay ever $1 (and not touch our capital stock) that we owe. Our heaviest creditor is C. N. Nelson & Co., lumber dealers, of St. Paul, to whom we owe $4.000. We ow r e only a little in Liv ingston and the one concern to which we are indebted here is perfectly con tented to wait. The amount owed us here is $15.000 all in good securities. This morning we paid Clark & Co. and raised their attachment. Our affairs are in excellent shape and in a month or two we will pay our entire indebt edness and proceed in better condition than before this assignment. In proof of this assertion any person that may he so disposed can come to our office and look over our books. Had we not known that C. N. Nelson & Co., a firm with an immense capital, were hard pushed and that they had been alarmed by stories told them about us an! were liable to attach.we would not have assigned; but for the purpose of gaining time to re-adjust our affairs without crowding those who owe us we made the assignment. Ne one will lose a cent by the Montana Lumber company." ITS HISTORY. The Montana Lumber company is a corporate body which organized under the laws of Montana in the early part of 1882. with a capital stock of $55.0C0. Its chief incorporators were W. C. Edwards of St. Raul, J. IL Hath way of Topeka. Kansas, and the members of the firm of Wustum. Carter & Field of Billings, whose yard it purchased. Mr. Edwards was then and is now president of the company and Mr. Hath way was and is vice-president ami general manager, with headqua - ters at Pillings. C. A. Wustum and of is L. T. Field have since retired fiom the company hut Mr. Carter still re tains some stock. Beside tho>e men tioned above as the present officers F. L. Mintie of Livingston, is secretary and treasurer of the company. The yard in Livingston was established in the spring of 1888 and has done a large business ever since that time, carried a heavy stock and, were its credits in the town converted into cash, would certainly he able to show a very large profit on its business in Livingston. As it is, its assets heie are all in the form of available securities that are good any day for the amount invested in t-iem by the company. At Big Timber the company own two mills, ;i quantity of sawn lumber and about 2,000,000 feet of uncut logs driven down the Boulder this spring. The First Cavalry.
