What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

LUMP CITY, MONT., JUNE 8, 1895. Johnston Mealey, of Howard Lake, N. Y.,,has invented a plan for staining a gold half dollar into Pa silver half dollar, -making the two worth together one dollar, making in this way a composite dollar and insuring bimetallism. Ha has applied for a Paient for his discovery. \Take away the Christian Sab- bath, and our calling, as ministers, is done.\ This sentiment was ex- pressed by Rev. M. D. Kneeland, of Boston, at the general assembly of the Presbyterian church, held in Pittsburg last week. The de- claration was made while speak- ing in opposition to Sunday news- papers, against which the Rev. Dr. spoke very strongly, and with force of logic as well as invective. Of course, the question may be a de- batable one from a religious stand- point', and for our part we admit the prepoderance of the argument to be against them', but we serious . - ly question the soundness of the position of Dr. Kneeland, that the only work a Christian minister has to do is to see that the Sat) ; bath is observed as a day of rest from labor. Of course, if every- body worked on Sunday, the con- gregation would be slim, but, from what we have observed, it looks to us as if a real wide awake Chris- tian preacher could find plenty to do if he never went inside of the pulpit. Indete , • is a fact that has escaped the obstvation of no one, that the true usefulness of every live minister is found in his closer contact with his congrega- tion individually, in their homes and in their daily avocations, and not in the religious dogmas he hurls at them collectively from the pulpit. Dr. -Kneeland is wrong. The work of the Christian minis- ter, who did not make a mistake, , when he thought he heard the Lord calling him to preach, would bot be done if there were no Sab- bath. Let Sunday be observed as a holy day by the Christian, and as a day Of needed physical rest to all others, and both preachers and laymen will find enough good to do in mix days to make them tired. Depess on Gresham. That ineffable humbug, Chauncy M. Depew, who seizes upon every occasion to parade himself before the American people, pays of Judge Oreeham: \As a secretary of state he was not trained for the diplomatic place. He was nothing of a diplomatist. Mettruich said t hat a eticoessful diplomatist was a HI I'('' liar. Judge Oresham dealt with the facts and the law, awl diplomacy is often a careful suppression of certain things.\ If Metternieh's, remark is true what a proficient in diplomacy Depew would be l Acquiring his knowlelge of tien and. affairs in the 1(.1,h 7 at Albany in the interest of the railroad of which he is now president through the grace of the Vanderbilts, not through any knowledge of the business, he might be thought* to have sat at the feet of Metternich himself. • There is no need to dwell upon the portrait of Chauncy M. • It was recently limned in a few master strokes by the governor of Illinois. The old methods of diplomacy have passed away. The simple, direct, honest methods of inter- course have been introduced. To deceive, beguile, coax, wheedle and browbeat are no longer regarded as the highest characteristics of a statesman whose business is more particularly with internation-- al intercourse. Judge Gresham was frank, sincere, open, manly. There was no tergiveratiOn or cun- ning in the man's composition. Thé diplomatists at Washington with whom lie had to deal knew their man and were as open and frank as he. They came at once to the issue. There was no beat- ing around the bush. There was no posing for advantageous po- sition. There was e trickery or humbug in the work in which he was engaged. When the history of his administration shall have been truthfully written it will be a luminona record of high-minded service of the greatest utility to the republic. In public) life no contrast is so decidedly marked as that between Chauncey M. Depew and Walter Q. Gresham. No Party Polities. The silver question is not a par- ty question, and that it is not such will give to it whatever' of purity, it may possess as a political ques- tion. The Salt Lake conference has excited jealously and envy among a certain class of would-be politicians, who sought to turn that convention into party chan- nels without success. The silver produoing states and territories, if nowhere else, should stand shoulder to shoulder on the silver problem, and we believe they will regardless of any little jack-in-the- box politicians who may seek to hoodwink the voters in the hope that, by some means they may be enabled to further selfish and per- sonal ends. The people of the East are as tired of the gold poli- cy as are we of the west, and about the only thing that remains to ce- ment their union with us and to right the crime of '73 is to convince them that we are not scheming, in the interest of designing politicians or a few silver mine owners; that when we say bimetallism we mean bimetallism in all that the word implies, and we will have no trouble in driving the Clevelands, Rothschilds, Carlisles, and. all other autocrats, aristocrats, money lenders and political shysters into the woods so far that they will never be heard of again. In this connection we repeat it is to be regretted dud, because the Salt Lake conference Was mainly the work of Western republicans that certain of the democratic press of this state are seeking to belittle the work there done by them. We admire the backbone of the men who had tliat convention in charge that they refused to be dictated to by shyster politicians and stood firm by the cause of free silver on a 16 to I ratio. Th• sentiment of the whole country is with them, and whether the square toed can didate on that issue be democrat or republican, if he is a man that the country can trust and has con- fidence in, he, will be the next pres- ident of the United States, no mat- ter by whom nominated. infirm itlent Prospectors. The new mining camps - ami the old ones, too, for that matter— are ovr-run with would-be pros- peetors who' are without means to accompliah anything, and are a I burden upon the more provident I Blanks of all kinds tor sale at the -, workers. There seems to be a Muina °ffice ' prutfy large class of adventurers who rush from one mining excite- ment to another, borrowing and \spOuging\ as they go Not all of them are. 1149nd-beats. Perhaps most of them honest, industrious and weht.intentioned. But they are improvident and reckless. They seldom stay in one place long enough to gain a footing, and, if they find employment, and are do- ing well, the first rumor of a new district will call them away, with scarce enough money in their pock- ets to take them there, and noth- ing to work with when once on the ground. If a man has a character for re- liability and \stick-to-it-ive-ness he need have no difficulty in get- ting a grub -stake before he leaves home, but he is not likely to find one ill a new camp, where there may be scores or hundreds like himself, wearing out the patience of the few men of means with ap- plications for help. The tramp prospector hardly ever finds any- thing, and, if he does, is almost never able to realize on it. But he goes on forever telling of the wonderful strikes that would hare made him rich if—there is always the \if.\ It is usually the man who pays as he goes and gets his money or his grub -stake by legitimate meth- ods that holds his claims and finds' out what they are worth before re- linquishing them. Prospectors are a generous, open-hearted class of people, but they cannot provide for all corners that rush in without money tools or supplies. And there is no reason why they should. =Denver Mining Review. Now that Summer is Here Burlington Route there's no reason for post- poning that eastern trip any longer. Everything is in your favor.
