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.
sr TilE LUMP CITY MINER: LUMP CITY, MONTANA. Miners' Union Celebration A Grand Day and a Grand Jollification. A glorious day greeted the Miners' Union for their celebration at Alhambra in honor of the anniversary of the seven teenth year of the organization of prec- ious metal miners in America, and to have seen the happy faces of the miners with their wives anil little ones, their sweethearts, their eonains and their aunts, all for the moment unmindful of the fact that they represented a class of producers of the dethroned and degraded white metal, was a sight that would have struck terror into the hearts of the gold - bugs. Alhambra! The very name is associated with history, witt poetry, with song, with cloudless skies and laughter -- a palace of the Moorieh kings at Granada -and was fittingly chosen as the spot in which to celebrate the birthday of the sons of queen silver! Headed by Higgins' cadet band from Helena the Union marched up through the main street of Lump City, the home of the great silver mines, and thence to Alhambra, where all arrangements had been made for the days' outing, and where the invited guests had assembled by special train, carriages and bicycles froua Helena, Winston, Wickes, Clancy, Corbin and su the surrounding country. There were more than 500 people in at- tendance, and all seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves watching the genies, dancing, listening to the music, sporting in the hot Water plunge baths, wander- ing about the grounds or climbing the hills and feasting upon one of the fairest of n atu re's grand panoramas,touched here and there with glistening snow up to which the eye wandered over a succese- ion of lofty wooded peaks, tilling the soul with gladness. In the base ball game considerable in- terest bad been awakened, owing partic- ularly to the fact that the Winston club and the Lump -City Giants were to cross bats, both crack amateur organizations, anil both clubs with clean records — neither having ever lost a game. The game wits a very pretty one and would have done credit to professionals, being marked by the complete absence of the usual jangles indulged in by amateur clubs, The Winstons, though defeated, played a plucky, up -hill game, and the nine is composed of thorough gentlemen. The following is the score: . INNINGS. 1- 2 3 4 5 6 8 0. Lump City Giants -3 2 0 3 1 2 1 2 *-14 WInstone..........-1 0 3 1 0 0 2 0 0-7 The single-handed drilling match, be- tween J. A. Bieber and E. D. Stillman, both of Lump City, proved a very inter- esting feature, and was won by Bieber, drilling 204 inches in 15 minutes. The winners in other contests will be given next week. PERSONAL MENTION Governor Rickards was a vuotor in the eity and gulch last 'Wednesday, spending the entire day in looking at the mines of the district, accompanied by private secretary Keith. The Governor said that the Salt Lake conferenoe anoom - • plished all that it was intended to accom- plish, and that he expected permanent relief to the silver mining industry through the medium of the republicans at the coming presidential election. He said in subetance that the republican party had been heretofore equal to great emergencies, and that he believed they would fully cope with the financial question when the nominations came to be made. The Governor left Friday to attend the meeting of the republican league clubs in Cleveland, Ohio. W. C. Mitten, representing the Mont- tana Mining and Market Reporter, Butte, Montana, was a u isitor in Lamp this week, in the interest of that sterling mining journal. The Salt Lake Tribune thinks that we of the West do not realize much, after ad, what a country we have. We are )‘ , int to think df Connecticut as a great .1 ate.

New !toad fr Helena to 1.tinip ' The vounty commissioners of Lewis and Clarke county have taken the in itiative in the matter of building a road from Helena to this city, by way of Unionville, and the Independent of last Friday has the following in connection with it: Action was taken yesterday by the board which will result in a new road to Lump Gulch by the way of Unionville. County Surveyor Bickel, Jos. Davis and Philip Constans were appointed viewers with instructions to begin their work July 21 The report of the viewers will be filed Aug. 20 and as soon there- after as practicable the commissioners will have the road built. This new road to Lump will be of great importance as it will give a short and easy traveled way between that en- terprising camp and the mining district thereabouts. The road to Unionville is in first-class shape and no work on it will be needed. The new road will ex- tend from a short distance beyond Unionville to the top of the divide which marks the boundary line between Lewis and Clarke and Jefferson counties. It will be only a few miles long but will be over some pretty rough ground. The road from the top of the range on the Jefferson county side into Lump will probably be built by Jefferson county. If not the merchants of Helena and Lump City will doubtless subscribe enough for its completion. That part of the road will cost but little as the slope is not great and the ground is comparatively even. The commissioners of Lewis and Clarke county would have acted upon this matter before had a petition for the the road been sent in. They could not order the preliminary work of viewing until that formality had been dispoed of. The petition came from residents of Unionville one of whom was Mr. Censtans, and was presented very late in the session. „\ri\'. Fair Concert (iarden.

BURNS, The regular weekly rumor is afloat CLANCY, MONT. that the Rothechielde have bought the Anaconda copper mine. The report of the sale of the old Dominion mine in Arizona is c,onflrmed. The two sets of hoisting engines build- ing at the Union Iron Works for the Ana- conda copper mines attract considerable atteneion. The greatest mines of their kind in the world naturally require the most powerful hoisting machinery, and the plant now being constructed is planned to meet every requirement. Mr. Keith, president of the townsite company, informa Us that arrangements are being made to actively push the in- terests of Lump City through a prom- inent Helena real estate firm. By reason of this the local office in Lump City will be temporarily discontinued. A num- ber of residences will be erected. The 1180,0(X) gold bare stolen from the Carson mint were recovered in a most unexpected way when government officers dug up the treaeure in the wood- shed of William l'irkle,r, an Mnploys in the welters' and refiners' department, who had not e%)sn been suspected.

The Riker standard also stimulates the develop ment of home manufacturers, the price of foreign commodities being so high that it pays well to inake aome of them at home. One great advantage, on vyhich Romero lays stress, is that at the low price of silver abroad it would be unprofitable to export it. The circula- tion is, therefore, increased so there is now an ample supply of money in the banks, which stimulate' industry, niain- tains prices and increases the demand for labor. On the other hand, he points out that the silver standard has greatly reduced iniportatiiine and that the blown' duties, whieh, until reeently, were the larizeut soun•o of Mexican revenue, are there fore much diminished.
