THE DAILY ^ENTERPRISE.
Published every day except Sund y. VBIGHT & HENDRY, : Publishers. LIVINGSTON, 31. T., SEPT 22, 1883. The proposition to establish reduction and concentrating works at St. Paul stim ulates both Bismarck and 3Iandan to set forth the advantages of their respective locations as eligible sites for that indus try. Bismarck very coolly speaks of all the Montana mines as being tributary to that town, while 3Iandau bases lier claim to the smelters mostly upon general prin ciples. f All this ,probably tickles the vanity of the people of the two Missouri river towns, but we of Livingston know that if ores are ever moved past Livings ton it will be to St. Paul or other points quite as far east. It may sound pre sumptuous to speak of Livingston as a rival of St. Paul, but in regard to the location of works for the reduction of ores on a large scale, such is the position we occu py. Tlii» town] is, by its approximate position with - regard to everything neces sary to supply and operate them, the onty proper location - for reduction works on the line of the Northern Pacific; while St' Paul by her ability to offer superior inducement.^ in the way of capital may overcome the disadvantages of being thousand milesjiway from both ore ant coal. Livingston is bound to become sooner or later a centre for the reduction of ores, and we trust that any portion of the product of her tributary mining coun try may never go to swell the wealth anc population of any eastern city, even though it may be metropolitan St. Paul. Jas. S. Brisbin, with his accustomec display of lofty patriotism coupled with a universal desire to get into print, nobly comes to the front regarding the proposed National Park railway, in a letter to ,the Helena Herald advocating the scheme in such terms as almost lead us to wonder how the Park has ever deserved the name without means of steam transportation By the way, the^General has the franchise to run a steamer on Yellowstone Lake, and it may be that this fact was in his mind when he says that ''the people do Hot Want a monopoly of the privileges in the Park in the hands of any one mnn or company." Indeed if any less inter ested person had written the letter we might think he had a keen appreciation ol the fact that a Park railway would make close connections with a Yellowstone Lake steamboat. He has decided opin ions about the improvement company, and says that the sooner we are rid of Ru fus Hatch, the better: and that "Tin National Park Improvement company ■will perish of its own »weight, and per haps come to an untimely end of itself this winter. Nobody wants the stock o: the National Park Improvement Co here, and if- it does survive long enough for Congress to get together again, it will be wiped out by legislation." He has constituted himself a preliminary survey ing party, and (in his mind) has the course of sucli a railway mapped out so distinct ly, that no man need err therein. The concluding paragraph of the letter con tains its grand denom ment, he ri.h ker nei to which the preceding parts are only as the shell. It reads like this: "Let the press and the people of 3Iontana unite and petition Congress at its next sitting to grant a charter for a road through the Park. It will be only necessary to ac quaint Congress and the eastern people with aR the facts in the case, to secure their hearty approval of the scheme, anc our Montana people and their papers can do more in that direction than other means." We fear there are several Montana pa pers whose editors are sufficiently de praved to resist the urgent appeal even though it comes from General Brisbin If they could see how a railroad wholly within the Park would benefit any place or person in Montana they might do otherwise. A Park railway will doubt less come without the petition of the "Press and people" of 31ontana. A scheme to that end (of which ,fhe Gener al's letter reads very much like a part), is fairly developed,and will succeed with out the assistance of the people of Moo tana and in spite of or in accordance w ith their wishes as the case may s be. The stimulus M General Brisbin's burning sentences was not particularly necessary, and might have been applied wifh better effect through the liiedimA of some paper that has exclusively eastern readers who stand ready tp girs "their hearty ayl immI w / ■ - , T i- % -ir The opinion quite generally obtains * J ' that nl.e cattle shipments from Wy „mill's will be lifilit this year as com-j pareil with 1882. Last, year the ranges were thoroughly cleaned, high prices obtained calling out all the reserve stock. This year the sup ply of ripe beeves is smaller than it was in 1882, while the tone of the market is such that no special efforts will be made to secure all the stock that the ranges may be able to furn ish.—Laramie Boomering.
