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
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

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

All wishing, residence lots, come and investigate for yourselves
before purchasing elsewhere, and buy only first-class property. Be
sure and do not buy property which will separate you from Umbesi
