Eatemi at tae j><> « - • •<,nil-claso mail stofllc* in Livingston. M. T. matter. In the death of Maj. Wash. Met'or mirk the newspaper profession loses an able member, his large family a kind husband and exemplary parent, and the world loses a fine example of the "no blest work of Cod." John Ma considerabh opera nor and debts I claimed b\ nais, work rather an f tin; I îutte. 1 pap has ceased, an been resumed building will guire seems to be having • trouble with his Butte With mechanics' liens inging over the concern, as ■ome of the territorial jour seems to Ire proceeding in ratie manner. One issue of •s will declare that work the next that it has Maguire says that the ho ready for occupancy February 'doth. If is evidenced from the amount of legislature presented this session to the Montana legislature on the subject of registration and other means to preserve the purity of the ballot that there is a strong sentiment in favor of something being done in that direction. It has ever been the principle of the Repub lican parly that a fair ballot was the| foundation of all good government and as the law making body is strongly Republican they. can hardly adjourn without taking some steps looking towards reform. The indications are in Red Lodge that there will be considerable trouble before the title to the townsite pro perty is decided. Red Lodge will probably be quite a town within a short time, and it will prove a great draw back to its prosperity if such is the case. Efforts should be made by those interested in the welfare of the town to have the title to this ground settled before there are any great amount of buildings erected. A second "Smoke House lode" affair similar to the one in IJutte would be a great misfortune. Nctwithstandmg the fact that the Associated Press are responsible for the report that a severe cold wave pre vails in the northwest, the weather here continues delightful. From all the in dications reported if would appear that the great winter storms originated east and north of Montana. Somewhere about the northwestern part of Dakota. While the theremometor here registers above freezing and the atmosphere is as mild and sunny as spring, the mercury is away below zero in Michigan and Illinois, Minnesota and and other less furored regions. (lovernor Leslie lias issued a procla mation of quarantine against cattle from Pennsylvania, New York, .New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, District of Columbia and Texas, liable to convey disease, lie prohibits the importation into the territory of any cattle, which have been brought from any portion of said scheduled localities, or any of them, except upon the certificate of the territorial veterinary surgeon that such cattle have been subjected to a quarantine of ninety days, and except Texas cattle that have been driven over land all the way from Texas and which are accompanied by a veterinarian's certificate." As shown in our local columns, the time has now arrived when our citizens by the exercise of a little enter prise can obtain the location of a flour mill at this point. The Enterprise has many times in the months and years past urged the inauguration of such a scheme as this and to judge by the remarks of many of our citizens they were equally anxious. It is their own fault now if through lack of the small amount of encouragement needed our city is given the go by in this matter, We urge every one to take an activ interest in this matter and see that the coming season witnesses the erection of this mill. There is a strong prejudice against women entering into the practice of any profession that brings them into any notoriety. This was shown by the report of the council committee on the hill admitting women to practice law The committe reported the bill without any recommendation that it pass. We think that if women wish to he ad mitted to the professions that if they can pass the required examination they should he allowed to practice. If they are not suited to the business or are not capable the public will soon find it out and treat them accordingly. It is not a gallant remark hut it is true that you give them enough rope they will hang themselves. It has proved so in manv other instances. The Enterprise office is in receipt of copies of the prospectus of the Gold Hill Quartz Lode Mining Company and the Main Fissure Quartz Lode Mining Company. The claims of these com panies as it is necessary to inform our citizens are located just north of town The prospectus of each company copies a well written article from the St. Paul Journal of Commerce on the natural advantages of our city. It then gives a description of the geological forma tion in this vicinity, written by the versatile secretary Mr. Frederick Carr. It describes in geological parlance Mr. Carr's theory of the formation of this district and proceeds to lead the reader to the connection that there are rich mineral deposits under our feet. We trust that the predictions of this 1 a ; j | | enthusiast may be realized but we must protest against a table given on one of the pages of this prospectus of the profits of the Montana mining com pany. It savors of an attempt to mis lead for what it has got to do with the Gold Hill Mining Company we cannot see, except to delude people into the belief that the companies are identical or that the Gold Hill is as far advanced and is as prosperous and promising as the Montana. The main place of busi ness of tiiese companies, the Gold Hill and Main Fissure, is given as Living ston, 'vith a branch otlice in Philadel phia. We would like to see a little more development work done and something more in sight before we can pass upon the merits of the companies' claims. _ , We present in another column a re sume of the enterprises which have materialized for our city within the past few days. It cannot be said that they were unexpected, but it was hardly thought that they would come so soon. The preparations for the con struction of a smelter would seem to indicate that work was to be com menced immediately, though it is hard to tell. Great enterprises move slowly, and we cannot expect everything riffht away. The fact that tue Northern Pa cific has withdrawn their lots from the market is a favorable sign, as unless some permanent rise was expected in values they would be anxious to take advantage of the present demand and unload. The parties having the matter in hand here are keeping everything very quiet, or rather attempting to, and most of the information obtainable is guess work. The transfers of property and in fact all the statements made in our local columns are substan tially true, as near as can be ascertained from reliable sources. The Pioneer Press has fulfilled its contract with the people of Livingston. What it has done in other towns we do not know, but it has done all it said it would i'or our city and done it well. In last Saturday's issue is a write-up of our resources two columns in length. It is a fresh and original article and comprehensive in its scope. Mr. Begg, the traveling editor of the Pioneer Press, was evidently*well impressed with the hospitality of our citizens, as he says: "You will see it is equally advantageous to invest capital in the mines, the rich lands, the agricultural region, or in the city; and you will do well to come and look the country over, and especially take a visit to the Na tional Park. Take a day or two exam ing the coal mines, and in these you will find this city has a resource which can never be taken from her. Success awaits these pushing citizens, and you will find them the most social among these open-hearted westerners. Come and visit them, and you will find this will repay you." And we second this invitation. We clip the following from the Miles City Journal: "At the recent municipal election held at Livingston the total vote cast was 477, In view of the fact that the then embryo city polled at the November election nearly or quite 300 votes more, the student of contem poroneous history is led into speculation as to what has become of the missing 300. Did they flee from the wrath to come of municipal government or did the enterprising repeater so excel him self in November last as to roll up a fictitious 300? Or still another theory; were they Park tourists who availed themselves of the elective franchise re gardless of existing provisions as to residence. There is an explanation coming somewhere." We will state for Brother Gordon's benefit that this election precinct is not confined to the now corporate limits of Livingston hut includes the whole township. Not only that but a large number of railroad men were working at that time in close proximity to this polling places who are now elsewhere. A little reflection would explain the difference without inquiry. A DUEL. The first reports of the death of Crown Prince Rudolph of Austria seemed to indicate that he died of dis ease, but the following would demon strate that it was the result of one of the numerous grave scandals of the so called aristocracy that are generally successfully hushed up: "The Evening Sun prints a Berlin special which it says come from a source above suspic ion. The special says that Crown Prince Rudolph was killed in a duel Tuesday by Count Franz Clam Gallas. The crown prince's witnesses were Count Iloyos and the prince of Coburg, his brother-in-law. The count's wit nesses were Prince Ferdinand Kinskv and another nobleman. The duel was fought at 4 p. m. in a little wood near Baden. The crow r n prince was wound ed and transported to the nearest castle, Meyerling, and died late in the evening, just at the hour when his coming was anxiously awaited at a state dinner in Hofburg. _ Crow Graziös Privilege. A special to the Independent from Washington says: The grazing con tracts upon the Crow reservation, which have occupied the attention of the interior department for two years, will be one of the first problems which the incoming secretary of the interior will have to meet. They were left by Secretary Lamar, and Secretary Vilas has found himself absolutely unable to consider the questions involved. The last treaty with the Crows leaves them the right to lease grazing upon their lands, but reserves to the secretary of the interior the right to fix the price to be paid and manner in which the con tracts shall be let. Williamson, former agent, let this grazing without adver tising it and said he could realize bu of of the in cil, is it £20,000 from the privileges granted. At the same time there was lying in the department an offer of £50,000 for the grazing and hay-cutting privileges on the reservation. Williamson could not explain this and was soon after suc ceeded by Brisco, the present agent. The department has since June, 1887, been trying to settle the question as to how the contracts shall be let. The agent recommends the payment of so much per head. This, however, leaves everything to the honesty of the agent, who may turn in what he sees fit. The plan that is recommended to the secre tary is to advertise the grazing and let it out in lumps, which would insure the Indians getting all that belonged to them. Still there are many questions involved that make the matter a hard one to settle, and the secretary has been disposed to go slow with it. THE MONTANA LEGISLATURE, Thursday—18th Day. COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS. The morning session was devoted to I the consideration of a memorial asking congress to pass the omnibus bill. It was finally recommended for passage | by the committee of the whole. In the afternoon C. B.

COUNCIL. This day's session was short owing to the fact that the legislators wished to get home to spend Sunday with-their families. The council committee to which was referred Hunt's gambling hill reported! it back with numerous amendments! and it was thought better to report it | as a new bill, which was done, and it was referred to the printing commit-1 tee. Bickford's bill, which makes some| radical changes in the present attach ment law, was recommended for pas sage. The bill authorizing justices of the! peace to act as police magistrates in the | absence of the latter was recommended for passage, as was the bill providing for a territ r al hoard for the inspection of boilers ano examination of engineers.

Noes—Blakely, Garrett, Hunt, John son, Jones, Roberts, Mr. Speaker—7. Another registration bill was intro duced, making justices of the peace ex officio registration agents of their town ships. f Twenty-third Day. This day's sessions were mostly de voted to the routine of legislative Ac tion. Bills were read and referred, but final action was taken on only two, notably the council bill to amend sec tions 1297 and 1302, fifth division com-. piled statutes, and the house bill to fix | the compensation of justices of the peace, both of which passed the houses in which they respectively originated. COUNCIL. The bounty bill came up in the coun cil, but was deferred on account of the absence of one of the members. The gambling bill is still in commit tee in the council and the substitute has not yet been reported printed. Collins gave notice of the introduc tion of a bill relating to the compensa tion of county officers. Bickford gave notice of the introduc tion of a bill to amend section 1305, fifth division compiled statutes, relating to exemptions from jury duty; also a bill to amend sections 898 and 900, fifth division compiled statutes, relating to the duties of county surveyors.
