Plan Union Depot
and a Joint Line
Great Northern and Milwaukee
Jointly Build From Judith
River to Weede.
Although there have in the past
been reports to the effect that the
Great Northern and Milwaukee might
get together to the extent of building [
a joint line from Lewistown eastward
to constitute a portion of their re- !
spective cut-offs, this only became a
practical certainty within the last few j
days, when it was learned that the
companies would mnst.' i: t sue'' a
line from Lewistown to Weede a ù.s- j
tance of about ninty miles. It is re
ported on good athourity in the same
connection, that this joint line will ex
tend westward from Lew'wstown to
the Judith River. From that point
the Great Northern will follow its own
survey on to Moccasin, but a few
miles away, while the Milwaukee will
follow its survey on toward Denton
and into Great Falls.
Will be Big Aid.
Such an arrangement will prove of
great mutual advantage, as it will
enable he companies to have their cut
offs completed from Great Falls, the
Great Northern to New Rockford, N.
D., and the Milwaukee to a point at or
near Weede, in much less time than
would otherwise be possible and at
the same time save the very large
expense which two roads would en
tail, while the one will fully answer
all requirements of both companies
for some time at least.
Will Be No Delay.
The Milwaukee and Great North
ern are anxious to have this work
completed at the earliest possible day
and it it has already been arranged
that the Milwaukee will begin work
as soon as spring opens up on the line
from Lewistown to Grass Range, a
distance of about thirty-three miles.
Much of the "a'le is already com
pleted. At *.-■ .» time the Great
Northern will m>.;i work at Grass
Range and complete the road to
Weede, from which point the roads
will branch off to their respective
The contract lor the road from
Lewistown west to the Judith river,
about eighteen miles , has already
been let. The total length of the joint
line will be around 110miles,and under
the arrangements made it can be
completed next year, or at least that
is the hope.
The probability is that this work
will take precedence over the exten
sion of the Hilger line to Roy, which
does not mean that this enterprise has
been abandoned by any means.
A Union Depot.
It is now stated and on pretty good
authority, that the joint line arrange
ment will give Lewistown a depot and
the Great Northern's depot site, which
is on the Annie Crowley property.
will be used for the purpose. The
union depot will be a big advantage
and is something the Commercial club
has been trying to secure for some

Billings Jan. 1.—At the request of
Mr. F. H. Newell, cheif of the United
States reclamation service data has
been secured by the Chamber of Com
merce of Biilings as to the success of
the settlers on the Huntly Irrigation

40-acre unit has been unanimously en
