THE DAILY ENTERPRISE.
Published every day except Sunday. VBIGHT & HENDRY, ; Publishers. LIVINGSTON, MONT., JUNE 23,1883. Professor Hinsdale, the biographer of Garfield, who is commonly thought of as "the martyred President," claims to have in his possession documents to prove that during the last presidential campaign Gar held entered . into a compact with Jay Gould whereby the latter furnished $100, 000 to the campaign fund on condition that Stanley Matthews should be appointed ■i justice of the Supreme Court. Hins dale says lie will give these proofs to the world at some future date. If the story l>e true it is a terrible stain upon the memory of the people's idol. Garfield has always been regarded as the personifica tion of political purity and as giving promise of political reforms, only renderec nugatory by his untimely and tragic end This compact, if it really existed, woulc : eem a death-blow to the hope that American politics can be conducted other »ban upon the basis of corruption, and that even the most honorable office is but a 'hing to be bought by the highest bidder A meeting of citizens is to be held this »Î veuing to consider matters of public in f crest, at wliieh there will doubtless be a targe attendance of business men. The occasion would seem most opportune for an active movement toward the organiza don of a Board of Trade. Such an insti tution cannot be placed in working order ;.t one meeting, but much can be done in t hat direction. Let those who are present this evening, and who feel disposed to be come members of a Board of Trade, signi fy such willingness by presenting their names, and, if considered advisable, tem porary officers may be elected at once 'The appointment of a committee to draft a form of constitution, we should consider ,i necessary preliminary, and at an early meeting of this embryotic board, the com mittee would present its report, and the organization would be perfected with little formality. We have repeatedly endeavored to i emoustrate the benefits which would ..rise from the existence of an active Itoard of Trade and the necessity of such an organization in Livingston in a greater degree than in other Montana towns which already have them. The business welfare <>f this town and the common good de mand, and will from time to time con tinue to demand, certain action on the part of the people. There is now abso I ntely no means of taking such action, ex vept by the awkward and often 'impracti cable method of calling a public meeting, and there discussing the matter. Very frequently no one can be found who feels I ike assuming the responsibility of calling such a meeting and of urging the object upon public attention. By a permanent association of business men these difficul ties would be in a great measure obviated. A Board of Trade would be a sort of rep resentative body, which would temporari ly stand in the position almost of a town government, or would at least be a guar •iian of the public weal, and an active element in forwarding the town's prosper ity. Unity of action can alone secure a desired public benefit, and there is no such union under present circumstances in Livingston. We trust that some public spirited gentleman who attends the citi zens' meeting this evening will present and advocate the matter, and make a diligent effort to secure the organization of a Board of Trade in Livingston. We urge the idea, not because it is a hobby •V qich we resolved to ride at all times, but because the subject under consideration is one of paramount public importance. James McKeever, who was convicted at the last term of the Miles City court ami sentenced to fifteen years in the peni tentiary for highway robbery, escaped hum that institution three weeks ago, was* recaptured, subseqcntly adjudged insane and committed to the Warm Spring« asy lum, frem whence he escaped, stealing a pair of horses in his flight and has not been recaptured. This McKeever was a partner in crime with Edwards, who es caped from Sheriff Johnson, of Custer county, while on his way to Deer Lodge, and who is currently believed to be iden tical with the notorious desperado Lon Williams. They were fit partners and have both sucîceded in getting free again. The Mississippi continues to rise, and is flooding tiie low ground near 8t. Lotos.
