THE DAILY ENTERPRISE.
Published every day except Sunday. HEIGHT & HENDBY, : Publishers. LIVINGSTON, M.T., AUGUST 81,1883. Yesterday's issue o f the Bozeman Cour ier contains a lengthy editorial advocating a concert of action between Livingston and Bozeman in all important enterprises and taking as its text "in unity there is strength''. Our readers will be greatly interested in its perusal and for their ben efit we shall reproduce it in to-morrow's issue of the Enterprise. We trust that its suggestions will receive the attention they deserve. Is anything special to be done by Liv ingston on the afternoon of Sptcmber 6th, when the four trains bearing the selection from the nobility of America, England and Germany halt at our depot? It is special opportunity and should not pass unimproved. Livingston is a child of the Northern Pacific, and though now, per haps. out of leading strings, should not forget its parent. Henry Villard has by his orders to those in charge of his great property evinced a desire to see every thing along the line put on its most pleasing appearance for the eyes of his mstinguished guests. This feeling on his part is right and proper, not only in jus tice to himself, but for the credit of the new northwest. We believe that so far as they can conveniently do so the people aUug the route should second his efforts, if from no other consideration than that of self-interest. There is no need of any extra expenditure for the purpose. Let the residents generally be careful that on that day the town wears its accustomed aspect of thrift and activity. A goodly representation of the inhabitants would do well to place themselves in view at the depot. Carriages and working teams should find business at that time on the streets in plain view of the trains. Prop erty owners should put their buildings and places of business in as neat condition as possible. If there are flags in town they should be floated to the breeze, and a judicious ornamentation with evergreens will have a pleasing effect. All these things will produce the natural, proper and most desirable impression that we have here in Livingston a busy, active town, with every sign of neatness, order, and wealth, and plenty of people enjoying life within its boundaries. We believe that Such a display of our every-day life would create a better impression than any formal reception. MONTANA NEWS. A large number of Government mules and horses will be sold at Fort Assinaboine Saturday, the 1st of Sep tember. Billy Brown was arrested on the Sandy last week by X.

During the last week thousands of acres of fine timber land have been burned over In the vicinity of Big Porcupine creek, this county. Its origin was the result of gross careless ness or wilful maliciousness. The stock growers of Wyoming are not generally opposed to the decision of the courts ordering fences around government land to be removed. On the contrary they are generally ready to see the law stringently enforced so that no fences will be in use* On the 19th and 20th of September there will be a general meeting of Montana Baptists at Helena foir the purpose of organizing a Baptist Asso dation for the territory, and for the purpose of mutual oequaintimee and council.

If the lady had com pareil the size of Hatch's heart to the Billings townsite it would have been the biggest kind of a send off. The treasury department is receiv ing daily credit bonds bearing assign ments witnessed by cashiers or presi dents of national banks, but not veri fied by the bank seal. Heretofore the signatures of tiie bank officers have been certified by treasury officials after comparison with the signatures on file in the office of the comptroller of the currency and known to be genuine. It lias been decided, however, that this practice involves too much risk, and hereafter when the seal of the bank is missing the bonds will be returned to the sender. We pullish the following for the benefit of the Billings Herald. It was clipped from the Terre Haute (Ind.) Gazette, and was written by the editor, W. It. Bali, who was of the Associated Press excursion to the Park: Of Billings a story is told whicn runs as follows: One of G. P. R. James' "solitary horsemen travel ing alone by himself " was on his way to the town several years ago, proba bly to see bis newly bought home. Stopping the only man he met, he asked where Billings was. "Billings! Why, you are in it now," "And where is Starr & Bullock's store?" "Just you keep eighteen miies down the left hand side of this avenue; its oil the first corner." Somewhat later a sheep herder located a homestead ang a stream back among the foot hills where no human habitation was visible for miles around, but just as he had completed bis log claim shack he was driven off by a real estate agent who came out to locate an east ern man on his residence lot in an addition to Billings which comprised the sheep herder's homestead.
