THE DAILY ENTERPRISE.
PnblisheJevery day except Sund y. WEISET & HENDSY, - : Publishers. LIVINGSTON, M. T., SEPT. 18, 1883. The agitation for the* further improve ment of the National Park, which will reach its climax at the next session of congress, has fairly begun. A railway through the Park seems the principal ob ject of public attention, and has already received the endorsement of a number of the territorial papers and favorable men tion from almost every newspaper corre spondent who has visited there this year. An editorial on the subject, contained in the Winona Republican, has recently come under our notice, and displays such urgent solicitude as to appear actuated by some more powerful motive than mere fjgard for the public weal. After speak of the necessity of a system of railways through the Park, it says: "Attempts have been made, and are likely to be re newed, to make it a military reservation and place it under the control of the war department. This is understood to be the scheme of certain high officers of the army, who are fond of making expedi tions with their favorites to this wonder land at the expense of the government. Much of the'opposition to the legislation of the last session of congress relating to the Park is said to have been inspired by the army influence. It will be well, therefore, to keep an eye upon the course events, and to see to it that what belongs to the people is preserved for the people's enjoyment, and use, and that neither monopolies not epauletted aristocracies are allowed to limit, or restrict, or embar rass the people in their right to that which is their own." While we are not in tiie slightest de gree opposed to the construction of a rail way through the Park, yet such matter as the above is repugnant. It merely means that the scheming of capitalists for Park privileges is once more afoot. This refer ence to "army influence," and "military reservation" is but a cry to alarm the dear people, "for whose enjoyment and Use" the Park should be preserved, and to di vert opposition from the; plans of private parties. Recovery of Stolen Horse*. Last Saturday afternoon two men having with them an unusual number of horses camped near Dabney Broth ers' ranch, up the Yellowstone, and one of them called at the house for bread and other supplies. He said they had came down from Bozeman, and were hunting and fishing, but his actions aroused suspicion on the part of Mr. Dabney, and he concluded to watch them. Later, he and O. T. Armstrong visited their camp and found they had seven horses, all of which they offered to sell at marvel ously low prices. This convinced Messrs. Dabney and Armstrong that all was not right, and though they came away just then, they returned early in the evening and found the pretended hunters had broken camp and were coming down the river. Their watchers rode past them and came down the river and aroused some of the neighbors, none of whom, however, were mounted and could render no assistance. Dabney and Armstrong then went back up the valley, and found that the party they were after had changed their course and were making for the foot hills. They pursued, and the thieves (for such they doubtless were) finding the lead horses encumbered their progress dropped those and fled toward the river, closely followed by Dabney and Armstrong, and hurried by a few shots from revolvers. They swam the river, however, and escaped into the moun tains. The five horses they had left behind them were taken possession of by.their prompt pursuers, and are de scribed and advertised in another col nmn. Though the thieves professed to have come down the Bozeman road, Mr. Dabney bas no doubt that they came down the valley from the Park or Cooke City. The Oregon Short Line. The Oregon Short Line reached the north side of Boise river, thirty-five miles below Boise City, on Saturday last. At this point the supply of steel rails became exhausted and there will be a short halt by the tracklayers. Superintendent Doddridge issued orders yesterday for the erection of a depot« and for that place, to be called Caldwell« to be a terminal station for the present. Prom Caidwel! to the j (motion with the, Oregon Railway 4b or ■ . will of ob of in re to Navigation company, in Burnt river, it is some thirty or forty miles, part of which will be quite expensive to build. .Snake river is to be crossed just above the mouth of Poise river, after which the track will be run on tue west side a few miles, then cross the river again to the east side, and afterwards back to the west, thus making three long and expensive bridges. This is made necessary by the broken condition of the country. Tribune. P. O'MEARA, ALSO OLD CLOTHES RENOVATED, RE paired and made to look as weli as new or no charge made.

GENERAL AGENTS FOR THE PARK AND PALACE o n 5 AND MINNESOTA ADDITION, North of Machine Shops. Very desirable property for investment. All wishing residence lots, corne and investigate for yourselves before purchasing elsewhere, and buy only first-class property. Re sure and do not buy property which will separate you from the best part of the town, and those who have examined the Park and Palacv Additions acknowledge them to be far superior to all for residences. We have already sold lots to persons who will build immediately, and Li some instances bring their families. We aim to constantly ke€j> houses for sale and rent, thus to accommodate those who wish to go to housekeeping in great haste and not having time to build. We are selling houses very cheap, and wisji/'those who anticipate buying would carefully examine ours, and see for themselves we do not pre varicate. REFERENCES : A. O. Slaughter, Banker, Chicago; C.
