THE DAILY ENTERPRISE. PubliHhed every day except Sunday. WEIGHT & HENDRY, î Publishers. LIVINGSTON, MONT., JUNE 29,1883. 16 Travel to the National Park seems be ginning early and in strong force. The Park lias been freely advertised durin the past year, and tlie advertisement already bearing fruit. The tourists who have this season visited the Park, or who are now in readiness to do so, are as noth ing compared with the swarm of tourists who will halt at Livingston during the re niaining seasonable mouths on their way to or from the National Wonderland. The number will exceed expectations, and we can only advise systematic arrangements for their accommodation during their stay in Livingston and in the way of outfitting thejn for their ride hence to and through the Park. We learn there is just canse for com plaint on the part of our postmaster in that a large amount of mail matter is daily posted at the trains. This deprives the Livingston postoffice of a certain amount of revenue and reduces the apparent earn ings of the office. The postmaster would reap no present l>encfit if all mail matter were handled by him except that by show ing a large revenue to the department the rating of the office would be advanced and certain larger privileges extended We have not the slightest desire to inter fere with every person's right to legally dispose of his own property according to his or her good pleasure. That is to say, if any man is resolved to put his letters on the train we cheerfully acknowledge his right to do so,. But for the benefit of a hard worked official, who would even tually be profited, and for the benefit of the town in securing increased postal facilities, we would request that when at all convenient postal matter be deposited in the local office. We trust our business men will not for get that on Saturday evening the Living ston Board of Trade will perfect its or ganization at a meeting in Bingham's hall. Every man in the town who is in terested in the community's prosperity should enroll his name upon the list of j members, and have a voice in discussing the many questions of vital public import which will come )>efore this body. We feel deeply gratified that the Board of Trade has advanced thus far toward active existence, and feel assured that once in working condition, it will accomplish a world of good for the people and the busi ness interests of Livingston. No one should forget that membership in the body will involve a small expense. Such an institution cannot exist without funds. The extent of fees and dues from members will, of course be regulated by vote of th board itself, and will not be excessive or beyond tlie capacity of any' man in the town who is in receipt of an income either from business proprietorship or salaried position. No man of • character in the community will be refused membership; on the contrary, all such are earnestly so licited to aid the movement by their presence. Remember to-morrow evening, in Bingham's hall, will be held the first regular meeting of the Livingston Board of Trade. Another Division of Hoad Accepted. Yesterday the commissioners appointed by the President of the United States to view and accept the railroad from this point to Helena passed through town.
