THE DAILY ENTERPRISE.
Published every day except Sund VBIGHT & HEÏÏDEY, : Publishers. LIYINGSTON, M. T., NOV* 26, lb83 The capacity of the Government Print ing office has just been shown in a strik in g way by the making of 50,000,000 bacco rebate labels. Six large presse were used, each printing 100 labels at every impression, and the work took sixty-five hours. The red ink used cost $1,000, and the labels, placed in line, would reach from New York to SanFran cisco. Doctor Burleigh and Capt. E. S. Top ping have been giving the newspaper men in St. Paul their ideas about the political destinies of Monntana and Dakota. Bur leigh says the only hope for any portion of Dakota is to be taken in as an offset to Democratic Montana, providing this Territory is really Democratic, of which lie wilfully seems to express a doubt. Topping had no doubt but wliat Montana adheres strongly to the Democracy at present but could not be certain but what this condition might change upon the de velopment of our agricultural interests It looks as though .there must be a mighty change before Montana becomes Republi can. A. E. Chantier, of St. Paul, who has been sending telegrams to some of the northwestern papers during the past sum mer, proposes to organize a Northwestern Press Association on the plan proposed in the Enterprise some months ago, viz : to organize the papers of Minnesota, Da kota and Montana into an association for the mutual interchange of news from their respective localities, thus making up a purely northwestern news report, to which could be added general news of national interest. The Pioneer Press is said to strongly favor the idea and a meeting of journalists from the northwest is pro posed, to convene at St. Paul in a few weeks. We heartily concur in the entire scheme except the place of meeting, which is at the extreme end of the circuit instead of centrally located as it should be. We trust that the plan may be car ried out and shall endeavor to forward the movement. War between France and China is now regarded as inevitable. The reports state that a final proposal submitted by the French minister to the Chinese govern ment was, from its character, regarded as a declaration of war and a proclamation to that effect has been bulletined through out the Empire. A dispatch dated on the afternoon of the 24th stated that an en gagement had taken place between three thousand Chinese and the French garrison at Haid Zuong. The garrison maintained its position by the aid of a gunboat, and after a fight of seven hours the Chinese force retreated. The war, if it breaks out in good earnest, will be a warm one, as the Chinese are equipped with all im proved armaments and munitions and their forces are organized in a superior manner. It is true that the armies of the Flowery Kingdom have hitherto cut but a ]K>or figure in wars with European powers but the coming contest may prove a pro nounced change from the rule that has obtained in the past. Tbe St. Paul merchants seem alive to the importance of securing the Montana trade as in competition with Chicago, and are using every endeavor to induce Mon tana purchasers to trade with them. They regard the trade of this Territory as desir able in an unusual degree, as Montana merchants, beside purchasing in large quantities, are very prompt to pay their bills. We have heard of a plan which would give St. Paul jobbers a considera ble advantage if carried out. It is to establish a mercantile agency in the Terri tory, which, at its head office, would carry a full line of samples from the houses represented, and if necessary would send out traveling men to take orders, which could be filled more cheaply, it would appear, than if the agents were sent out on periodical trips from the head estab lishments at St. Paul. This arrangement is now being worked very successfully by the Standard Oil Company, who have their office in Livingston, and if such an agency as we mention be established we have no doubt Livingston will be the j »oint selected as being the most centrally located, at the same time that it has the prospect of being the largest city in the Territory.
