The "man wno was scalped three times" and still lives, was an object of wonder to the theatrical people here this week. The member s of the theatrical com pany here this week went fishing Thurs day and seemed to enjoy very much the sport obtainable along the banks of the Yellowstone. Thomas Preston is laying the foundation for an extensive restraurant and lunch counter just back of the new depot. It is to be a two story building and contain rooms for lodgers upstairs. There will be a matinee at the Opera House at 2 p. m. by the Caroline Gage and Keene theatrical company. A full house is expected as our people are realiz ing that we have one of the best troupes in the country now in our town. It is expected that Rev. A. D. Raleigh, D. D., pastor ot the Methodist church, in Helena, will preach and lecture in the Methodist church here, on Sunday and Monday, Feb. 17th and 18th. He is very highly spoken of as a preacher and lec turer. The title of the lecture is "Wanted, a Man. Dr. Grant returned from Helena yesterday and denies that he has sold his ranch below town to anybody. He says that he could not if he wanted to as he has not yet proved up on it. He states however that he has had two very good offers for the place but has made no arrangements to sell to anybody. During tbe past week the passenger and freight travel on the N. P. has been unusually heavy. The trains have been run in two sections on several occasions. On Thursday a steamer all ready for launching was an object of interest on one of the west bound freight trains. It was nearly the length of two flat cars and was destined for some of the rivers on Hie western water shed. Last Sunday the wind "got up and howled." It blew harder than it has blown for a year. Livingston has got a name for being a windy place but most people who stay here any length of time say that it does not blew here much more than it does any other place. Sun - day was an exception, however, and by night there was very little loose rubbish lying around town but no damage was done. A. novel entertainment will be given by the G. A. R. on Washington's Birthday, Feb. 22nd. It will be a ball and camp fire. The dance and supper will be served in the Opera House. Good music will be furnished for the dance and the supper will be a regular camp fire spread of pork and beans and coffee, and the whole affair will be of a social and infoi mal character. Tickets will be $2.00 and every one attending is assured of a pleasant and enjoyable evening. McKeown & Doty relinquished their right to coal land at Cokedale, one day last week, and the property was entered at the Bozeman land office by Francis Wickes, wife of Geo. T. Wickes, of Hel ena. It is presumed the entry was made for the benefit of the Cokedale company. One hundred and twenty acres was paid tor at $20 per acre, and it is currently re ported McKeown & Doty received $3,000 for their interest and improvements.— Avant Courier. On Tuesday atternoon there was con siderable excitement over tbe rumor that J. R. King, manager of the Cumberland Mining company, had been lynched by dissatisfied miners in Castle. Many tele grams were received here from Helena and Billings making inquiries. As near as can be learned from parties coming from that direction, Mr. King was hung in effigy by a small crowd as a mere josh. The camp, it is said, is very quiet, not much work going on and many idle men. Times arc not expected to improve be fore spring. On Monday the Caroline Gage and Keene Theatrical company opened in tbe Park Opera House for a week's engage ment. Tbeir repertoire consisted of "Pearl of Savoy," "Queens," "Fauchon the Cricket," "Galley Slave," "East Lynne" and the "Octaroon," which is to be played to-night. They have been greeted with full houses every night, as they deserved. Miss Gage is excellent in the leading roles and her support is un usually good. Most of the plays pre sented are well known to the public, but that has made no difference with the audiences, as they were so well presented that they were received with evident en • joyment. Kent Thomas as the comedy man has been unusually happy in bis local hits and has received many encores. It is not often that we have the good fortune to be able to enjoy a full week of the lyric art. Our citizens have showed their appreciation of the fact by the pur chase of many season tickets. We hope that Miss Gage and her support will come again soon. Our city will always be ready to give her a good welcome. Mr. Phil. E. Lawrence the assayer has moved his assay office into the commodious quarters he has secured in the new Enterprise building and he is now ready for business with improved facilities. Mr. I. J. Galbreath tbe architect has secured an office iu the same building and is fitting it up with handsome drafting tables and drawers for drawings. Mr. Galbreath was tbe designer of the Enterprise buildiDg and Iihs in his hands plans for several large buildings to be constructed in Livingston this coming season. The Gold hill mining company is re presented in Livingston at present by an assayer Mr. Williams who lias an office in tbe Enterprise building. Some development work is being done on several of the claims north of town, four miners being at work there. Mr. Williams says that the company has a defined quartz lead and that although the ore is not very rich that he thinks it will pay very well to work. He also says that arrangements are being made to have a large amount of work done during the summer season and that very probably a large amount of money will be expended in the shape of machinery and labor. We hope that Mr. Williams is correct iu his diagnosis but many of our best miners here have no faith in the value of the claims owned by this company. It is our sad duty to chronicle the death of Stuart Wood, the seven year old son of Mr. and Mrs. R. P. Wood. His death occurred Tuesdqÿ night after an illness of twenty-four days. The cause of his death was dropsy superinduced by a severe attack of scarlet fever. His untimely death has cast a gloom over the eutire neighborhood. Every one who knew him loved him. He was an unusually bright boy, manly and gener ous and his pleasant frankness made him a favorite with all. He was the idol of his parents and in tbeir sad bereavement they have the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community. The funeral services will be held at the house of Mr. Wood three miles west of town on Sunday at 2:30 p. m. Major Wood of Ottumwa Iowa, father of Mrs. Wood is expected here to-day. Most of our citizens have probably no ticed tbe new vestibuled cars that have been running on the Northern Pacifc trains during the past few days. The following description of their construc tion, from the Pioneer Press, will be of interest: Tbe first consignment of tbe Northern Pacific's new vestibuled cars has arrived in the city. It consists of five day coaches, and five more are now on the way from Pullman, where the new trains are being made. The coaches are first class in every particular. They are finished in solid woods, no veneering be ing used, luxuriantly furnished, and con tain toilet and dressing rooms similar to a Pullman car. The walls contain a layer of asbestos, and in the double floor is also a layer of the same material. The coaches form a part of the outfit now un der construction for the equipment of all through passenger trains with vestibuled cars, including dining cars and colonist sleepers. The material for placing vesti bules on the dining cars is now at tbe shops of the company at Como. Independent : It is stated that an effort is now being made in New York city to form a syndicate for the construc tion of a pipe line from the Wyoming oil fields in the Big Horn country to a point near the Northern Pacific railway. This is a great scheme, and should it be successfully carried out would open up a new and highly important enterprise. These pipe lines are in existence all through the oil fields of Pennsylvania and Ohio and have been built by the Standard Oil company. It is said that this same company have an eye on the Wyoming oil fields and are largely inter ested in the projected branch of the Union Pacific from Fort Fetterman in Wyoming to the Big Horn country known as the Midland route. It has also been intimated that tbe Northern Pacific rail road is interested in the organization of this pipe line syndicate, the object being to shut out the Union Pacific and its connection with the Billings, Clarke's Fork & Cooke City line, which proposes to penetrate this oil region. The new depot is now ocupied by the full staff of the Northern Pacific. The building was planned by Ex-Supt. Law and for its size is tbe most convenient and handsomest on the road between Bis mark and Helena. It is of brick With sandstone trimmings. The main portion is two and one half stories high. On the lower floor are the waiting rooms, ticket office and Western Union telegraph offices, up stairs are the train dispatchers offices, superintendents office and others. On the west side is a one story building for tbe accomodation of the baggage and ex press department. In front of the depot is over 800 feet of wide and commodious platform. The building cost $12,000. And no expense was spared m affording convenience or neatness. There are closets on both floors. Water taps in every room. The inside is neatly finished in Georgia hard pine in the natural wood and the effect is very handsome. The whole structure adds greatly to the looks of this portion of town and is a credit to the company. The following officers of Yellowston Park Lodge, No. 45, I. O. G. T., were duly installed Feb. 1, by Lodge deputy, Samuel Hosford : Orlando Emmons, C. T.; Miss Grace Emmons, R. H. S.; Mrs. Emma Daly, L. H. S.; Mrs. Louisa Wolcott, V. T.; Geo. T. Collins, Treas.; E.«L. Lamb, F. S.; Mrs. Emma Emmons, R. S.; Wm. Daly, Ass't. S.; H. E. Wol cott, Chap.; Arthur Davis, Marshall, Miss Blanche Smith, D. M.; Miss Hattie Wol cott, Guard, Wm. Irvine, Sentinel. Misses Hattie Wolcott and Carrie Har mon were elected Captains of Companies A. and B. for "good of the order." The first îegular monthly meeting of the board of aldermen was held last Monday evening. The mayor and all the aldermen were present. The new set of city books were ordered and other prep arations were made to enable the officers to carry on the municipal business. Geo. T. Young was chosen city marshal and Jack Skillin night-watchman. It was decided to pay the city clerk, attorney and treasnrer $50 per month, each, as salary. A committee was appointed to inquire into the amount of licenses that could lie collected and to make out a schedule for this city. The ordinance published in another column was passed. It defines the duties of officers and states their bonds and salary. The city attor ney was instructed to formulate other or dinances stating what constitutes offenses agaiust the city government, so that they can be passed at the next meeting, as the city marshal can make no arrests until the ordinances are passed. The board is now getting down to work. An order of business has been adopted, and the may or and aldermen are catching on to the method of quickly disposing of what comes up. The standing committees were not appointed at this meeting, as it was important that proper consideration should be given the subject. A special meeting was called for Thursday evening The City Council met on Thursday evening and held a long and laborious session. Ordinances giving the order of bnsiness and by-laws of the muncipal body, creating the office of city police man for night duty and fixing his salary at $75 per month without any fees, and setting a schedule of licenses were passed. The council in the latter ordinance tried te be as easy as possible and in almost all cases the licenses are set at a minu mum point so as not to discourage any business or be too hard on those already here. This ordinance will be published in full next week. The Mayor appointed the following standing committees. On sidewalks. Wm. Thompson, S. M. Nye, A. Mayne. On streets and highways J. Tinling, Frank White, James Carroll. On ways and means A. Mayne, Wm. Thompson, S. M. Nyc. On fire and fire apparatus Frank White, James Carroll, J. Tinling. This gives one alderman from each ward on each important com mittee. The city attorney was instructed to draw up a sidewalk ordinance and one of offenses against the city. A special meeting will be held on Monday evening, Feb. 11th. Travelers from Red Lodge say that work is progressing finely in that locality. On Monday the railroad crossed the res ervation line and was five miles from Red Lodge, and by Ibis time the iron has probably reached the mines. There are now 75 men at work in the mines alone, and twenty-five more will be put iu in a few' days. The general management of the mines is conducted by Mr. Platt, as sisted by Mr. White. They have com menced by being very liberal with tbeir men and have placed none of the usual restrictions made by corporations as to their place of trading or any of their pri vate affairs, that are ruled upon by almost all tbe large works in the territory. This gives all the business men a chance to do a share of the business, and new firms are constantly coming into the camp. J. H. Conrad & Co. are building a store 30x80 feet; B. S. Scott & Co. have opened a drug store ; John Losekamp is increasing his stock of clothing, and there are nu merous other business enterprises. The townsite of Red Lodge is unfortunately in rather a peculiar situation. It is claimed m several different ways. The ground is covered by placer claims, coal claims and also by squatters, numbers of whom have built on lots and claim the ground accordingly There will probably be some litigation over these matters, but it is hoped by all interested tbat some amicable arrangement can be made. personal pourra. District Clerk Garrett was a yisitor in Livingston this week. Maj. Geo. O. Eaton was a visitor in our city from Bear Gulch this week. W. D. Smith, the Miles City stock in spector was in our city on Wednesday. A. L. Love was in onr city on Saturday and Sunday an business con nected with locating the smelter water right. City Attorney Frank Henry and Dept. County Clerk J. Ü. Vilas, were among the official residents of Livingston who visited Bozeman this week. . County Treasurer Merrill of Miles City was a visitor in our city this week, He has great faith in the. substantial nature of our present boom and does not hesitate to say so. Mrs. Fitzgerald made a trip down from Gardiner on Sunday with her hus band who is attending to the mail con tract between here and that place. Dave Rankin our well known valley stockman returned from a lengthy visit to St. Louis. He was very ill while there but is now rapidly recovering good health. O. M. Hatch was up from Big Timber this week visiting his brothers and mother at the Albemarle hotel. Mr. Hatch re ports things quiet at Big Timber with some scarlet fever among the children in that town. County Superintendent of schools Mrs. Hunter who has been teaching school at Big Timber came up from that place on Thursday. Her school has been closed owing to the prevalence of scarlet lever at that period. Judge J. A. Savage returned on Satur day from his trip through the east. He says that he had a very enjoyable trip— visited Washington, New York and a few other eastern villages and feels quite improved in health. Hon. Geo. H. Carver came down from Helena Saturday night and passed Sun day in town. It is rumored that during the short time he was here he purchased a block of real estate on tbe north side of the track in anticapation of the coming rise. John E. Bennett, city editor of the Helena Record, spent a few days in our city this week in the interests of his paper. The Rocord lias done the square thing by Livingston and her citizens appreciate the paper accordingly. Mr. Bennett is a very pleasant gentleman and we hope he will visit us again. Col. E. C. Waters was in Livingston on Monday. He was on his way to the Park to inspect matters there and commence arrangements for the large tourist travel that is expected this summer. He has been in Washington for the past two months in the interests of the Northern Pacific Park association, and has presum ably fastened a few more rivets in the monopoly the Northern Pacific has of the Park travel. Mr. E. O. Clark of the Boulder was in town this week on business connected with the flour mill. He informs us that the ranchers of the Upper Boulder have organized for the purpose of constructing an irrigating ditch covering their ranches with water from the Boulder stream. The company have taken out 2000 inches and the ditch will be five miles long. Eight ranchmen will be benefited by this and it will give them in the aggregate 560 more acres of arable land to put in cultivation. It is such enter prises as this that add to the value and fertility of our valleys and we are glad to make a note of this important step. Prosperity Ahead. Our citizens on Saturday began to wake up to the fact that a boom had struck our town. The first indication of the fact that outside parties were figuring on mak ing Livingston a point for the location of large industries was the posting of notices by Geo. T. Wickes, for S. T. Hauser of Helena, claiming ten thousand inches of water of the Yellowstone river, to be taken out at the foot of C street, Livingston, by a ditch six feet deep and twenty feet wide. The water to be used for manu facturing purposes, and for smelting, milling and reduction of ore. Another notice was posted up in the canyon about two miles above town for another ditch carrying a like amount of water, to be used for manufacturing pur poses. The next thing of interest was the ap pearance in the Helena Record of the fol lowing item of news: "Articlesof incor poration of the Helena and Livingston Mercantile company were filed with the secretary yesterday. The capital stock is $50,000 in 10,000 shares of $5 each. The incorporators are John T. Murphy, M. E. Downs, H. M. Pärchen, A. J. Se ligman and A. M. Holter. The objects of the company are the transaction of a general mercantile business m Livingston and east Helena." On Sunday night the statement was made that the Helena and Livingston Smelter company had purchased the ranch of G. M. Grant situated 1£ miles below town paying therefore the sum of $4000. From that time on real estate began to exchange hands rapidly, from Sunday night until Tuesday morning nearly $30,000 worth of lots were sold in town at good figures. On Tuesday after noon telegrams were received by tbe N. P. agents at this point to withdraw all Northern Pacific lots from the market until a new schedule of prices could be arranged which is presumably an indica tion that the company think that they can obtain larger prices in a short time. Arrangements arc now being made to start a National Bank at this point of which Ex-Gov. Hauser is to be president and T. C. Power vice President. There is some discussion going on we under stand as to whether to make the capital stock $50,000 or $100,000. Helena parties are eager to take stock and over $50,000 can be obtained right here among our own capitalists. The Bank will probably have a capital of $100,000 as there is so much money available and so many seekers after stock that it can be easily raised. This is not a boom strictly speaking that has strack our town but is simply the result of what has been pre dicted many times would follow the acknowledgment that Livingston was the central point of the Eastern Montana mineral districts. An interview with a recent visitor iu Livingston who lias been talking with business associates of Ex-Gov. Hauser develops the fact that the so-called Hauser syndicate is pursuing a plan of operations that aims to make Livingston the center of operations for a tremendous system of bullion producing plant. As he stated the plan of the syndicate has been for some time to build the Rocky Fork railroad, locate a smelter at Living ston build a road to Castle and then connect the Boulder branch with Butte to allow of the direct shipment of coal and coke into that camp from this country. Thus transportation would be saved on enormous amounts of fuel and ore. All the ore in the neighborhood of Butte will be smelted there and that in this neighborhood at the Livingston smelter. It is with the utmost satisfac tion that we and all others interested m the growth of our city note these recent developments. They have long been predicted by conservative and far seeing men. But it was a question as to how long before it would materialize. The coming season now promises to be one of unexampled growtli and prosperity for our new city. Panhandle News. Sheriff Templeton returned on Monday from a trip to Red Lodge. When there he was presented with a petition, signed by 147 residents of Red Lodge, protesting against the panhandle being attached to Yellowstone county. The petition sets forth that the undersigned protest against it on the following grounds : "Because of the very large indebted ness of Yellowstone county and the high rate of taxation now prevailing there, which is 50 per cent greater than that of Park county, and we would thereby be unjustly compelled to assume a pro rata share of the indebtedness of said Yellow stone county, from which we have derived no benefit. "As said Panhandle is an integral part of Park county and does not touch Yel lowstone county at any point, its annexa tion would be beneficial to the citizens of that county alone by compelling us to assist them in paying both principal and interest on a very large indebtedness, which we had no hand in creating. "Because our present rate of taxation is but 15 1-10 mills on the dollar, which is sufficient to pay the expenses of our gov ernment and interest on our bonded in debtedness; whereas the rate of taxation in said Yellowstone county is now 24 6-10 mills on the dollar, and even that is in sufficient to pay toe expenses of said county and interest on its bonded indebt edness." For the above reasons, and they are good ones, the people of Red Lodge ob ject to being attached to Yellowstone county. Every man who signed the al leged petition to be annexed has signed this protest. Many of them say that they signed the first one under misrepresenta tions and that they are sorry they did so. We hardly think, as wc have stated before, that the legislature will seriously con sider the proposition to divide our county against the wishes of the residents, or annex the divided portion to a county that it does not touch at any point. Tourists, Whether on pleasure bent or business, should take on every trip a bottle of Syrup of Figs, as it acts most pleasantly and effectually on the kidneys, liver and bowels, preventing fevers, headaches and other forms of sickness.
