THE DAILY ENTERPRISE.
Published every day except Sunday. TOnar & H3Jûar, r Publisher*. LIVINGSTON, MONT., JULY 18, 188Ï WANTED—A HOTEL. TJie need of a first-class hotel in Living ston is becoming very urgent. When gentlemen, such as came in from the Park last evening, are forced to search from house to house for accommodation and a portion of them accept invitations to lodge with menus, it looks as though more anu beiter h >tel facilities v.e e a present neces sit/. Not only is such an instance as the above immediately deplorable but the town sulfc-rs indirectly tncseby. Avisitoi will stay no longer than he can help in a place where lie cannot be boarded accord ing to his tastes and naturally leaves with a bad general impression of the town. The majority of our hotel guests in Liv ingston are of the very best class—ladies and gentleman, who are accustomed to every comfort, and it must be that hotel life here at present represents several o the discomforts of existence. As a con sequence they will stay here no longer than is necessary, and thus the town loses | the profit that would be consequent upon a longer visit. Why cannot this want be filled? A meeting was held last evening to consider the organization of a company to prospect and develop mines in the Emi grant Gulch region. The idea was consid ered very cautiously not to say distrust fully by those present and resulted only in an agreement to introduce the matter at the next meeting of the board of trade. We have no personal interests in the mat ter direct or indirect and have no ex|nict ations r.f profit for ourself or friends dependent upon the formation of the com pany, but we nevertheless regret that so little interest seemed taken in the propos ed enterprise. In enumerating the re sources of Livingston it is usual to men tion the immense mineral wealth contigu ous to our town, and this is very proper We believe that Livingston is the centre of a great mineral region, but so long as that w r calth remains buried the town might as well lie located on a section of Dakota prairie, so far as benefit from! mines is concerned. We expect outside | capital to develop this hidden wealth, but will capital be invested in an unbroken lead when it is almost impossible to judge of its value? Some one ni ust prepare the way. The owners of the claims cannot do so for they are absolutely without pecuniary resources. What is more rea sonable than to associate a little local cap ital to develop these mines and place them in such condition as will enable investors to accrtaiu their value by mere inspect ion? If the mines prove worthless, the company loses its expenditure, if valu able a greater or le*i profit on the invest ment is insured. In any event the money is expended in such a locality as wiil in sure its return to Livingston merchants. It is not expected that such a company would begin operations without due pre parations or knowledge of its underlaying. But a company could Ihb formed w ithout expense, and for a very small cash outlay property could lie examined and its value determined with reference to the advisa bility of developing it. We hope that when the matter oomes up before the Board of Trade it will lie favorably con sidered though this appears more a legiti mate private enterprise than one to be handled bv the board. ^ew Electrical Marvels. Dp. Siemens, of Edinburgh, has been making experiments with electricity upon growing crops, and has rescued some astonishing conclusions, which aeem to be justified by the tests be na» br«i applying. He fin** that plants wrn grow continuously, winter as well M summer, if subjected to tue electric hght inclosed in glass. It has long been know that light as well as heat was one « the factors in the growth of plants. It has also been understood that eome plants would grow continuously without any pend of rest, and it now se ms that, by mwq the electric light, a plant cmi make as much progress at night as by W*J"4 winter as well as summer. If this is true, a new agricultural era baa dawned up n the world. Tim gmma will hare their seasons shortened. !?Vu -t * u , er brought market e ^trio.
