Justice of the Peace: M. D. KELLY. Gov. Cleveland is visiting New Jersey and is being greeted with such an ovation as is seldom seen in this country. Essex county, New Jersey, is his native place and the whole state will prove loyal to its noble son. How pleasant it must have % sounded to the few republicans in the Rink on Mon day night when Major Maginnis related snatches from the record of the man Alderson who assumes to be the leader of the republican party in this county, who calculates by using Livingston as a catspaw to make the party victorious this fall. What a leader ! What must lie the feeljngs of the repu table members of the party to be so led ? How the hearts of certain Livingston gen tlemen must swell with pride at the re membrance of how they had this Alder son brought over here, admitted to their confidence and constituted their campaign leader! How proud they must have felt when they heard it said from the public platform that if Alderson had his deserts he would be wearing a convict's garb with in the walls of a peuitentiary. Alderson is billed to speak for the republicans here a few evenings hence. We recommend as his subject: **Me, Alderson; or the Experiences of an Indian Agent." While we feel for Judge Maguire the warmest personal friendship *nd admit* him as a versatile rustler and ail »Me writer, yet we do-not believe the interest» of the county would he subservedh" .clectwn to the office ef probate wjodgp «f 8* Mts - expressed it. We wish to see ( #im, h 01 wttled ait, and of •**, •jMI We recognize those qnalications in Judge McPherson and in no other candidate. McPherson ana m no ouier We do not believe tbst Judge Msguift % stands any chance of being elected. Re publicans and Judge Maguire himself are careful to annoence that the latter is a democrat. Unless democrats are mindful the effect of Maguire's candidacy will be to elect the republican nominee, Hi rtman —a result that we should regard as very near a public calamity. T. P. McDonald is going to be elected assessor by a large majority. The people of the county have discovered during the last two years how easy it is for a care less, ignorant assessor to make a mess of the duties of the office, create endless dissatisfaction and materially reduce the county assessment. r lhat is what was done in 1883 by W. Y. Smith, the only republican county officer. Mr. McDonald is universally regarded as the most com petent of the three candidates. And in deed it is so. His extensive business at Livingston, White Sulphur Springs and at the Park throws him into close connection with stockgrowers and ranchmen from whom he buys his stock of meats and vegetables. With those classes he is very popular. He has a growing herd of cat tle of his own on the ranges. He has been a successful, active young business man and at the same time has won the good-will of all with whom he has come in contact. He has successfully conduct ed his private affairs and in a public trust will acquit himself equally well. Vote for him. of of to ty ! ? Many friends of the Enterprise think the paper should have more to say on the subject of the division of Gallatin county Perhaps we had, though we really do not look at it in that light. Neverthe less, that our position may be fully and clearly defined, we will say a few words. We have here a great county which ex tends about 110 miles east and west and nearly or qu^ the same distance mrth and south. It comprises about 7,500 square miles or nearly 5,000,000 acres of laud. It has at present a taxable valua tion of, in round numbers, $5,500,000. It is in size, in diversity and richness of natural resources, m the number, thrift and prosperity of its population, in the. development of natural wealth, one of the greatest counties of the territories. It is separated iAto two great natural divisions by a range of mountains, upon one side of which lies the Missouri basin, aud on the other the valley of the Yellowstone. These' two sections of tiie county are about equal in size and population and m agricultural andBtock-growing advantages. Uu the Yellowstone side of those moun tains is, in addition, a great area of moun tain country that is ribbed with veins Ol rich mineral, of iron and coal—mostly undeveloped. These mineral districts make a diversity of interest between the Yellowstone and the Missouri portious of the county. There is iu fact no commun ity of interest between the two sections except that which comes from being bound under one county government and belonging alike to the great territory i of Montana in which all feel a just pride. Between the valley of the Yellow stone and the valley of the Gallatin there are no ties of popular feeling^ of natural union or of commerce. Each portion of the county is able to sliilt for itself without dependence upon the other to any greater extent than the inter-com muuicatiou between neighbors mid friends in independent circumstances. Upon one side of the mountains is a class of people who have for a score of years occupied their present locations and are bound to gether bv notions, ideas and habits- pecu liar to themselves. On the other side is a preponderance of population that has arrived upon the scene but lately aud is also a peculiar people—a people that feels iully capable ot managing its own affairs, that resents interference, that has a pride in manifesting its own energy and in the work of its own hands. T ho line of mountains would divide the total of taxable property in two portious neatly equal at present. The development of thé great natural resources of the Yellow stone region would in a little time in crease-the value of its propertv to a great tiim —much greater than that of the present whole county. Iu answer to the objection that the government of a new county would be very expensive in the beginning« it *naj be said (and we favor i) that the organic act could tie a provision sting 1 Um jgffS* a cer m taxubte nm. ~ -r—- Yellowstone portion % people from even tens of thousands, of dollars have been spent on the west side of the of the County, called there on county-seat business. Little or none of that money ever returns here, because there is no community of interest, and thus this por tion of the county is robbed of so much of its circulating currency. The pro posed new connty belongs by every tie to the Yellowstone region and should be granted a distinct municipal government. Since the beginning of the world distinct peoples have contended for distinct man agement of matters pertaining to them selves. For this, new territories and states are established; for this same principle George Washington led the armies of our infant republic to battle against power that sought to interfere with their local affairs. Next winter the legislature of Mon •tana will be asked to establish a new coun ty in the Yellowstone valley. If the peo ple of the proposed new county can see a means to further the granting of that re quest by the exercise of their franchise oo Tuesday next, we plead with them to do so. - - ft a ^ s c~e~ O 0 8 0 09 8 0 0 6 9 0 0 9 OOO.
