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.

Ashby, Its One Time Pi estaleiti, Ac - mused of misappropriating About CI 10,000 Suit was 00mmeiket5d ia the district court at Helena tigiti Obi Shirley C. Ash- by fur the recovery ut about $120,000 which amount it is alleged was procured by him through \fraudulent acts.\ The tiret complaint named ten different causes of action, alleging in the first four of these that Mr. Ashby as presi- dent took four notes executed by F. F. Shur, to him personally, aggregating 825,000 to the bank and without the knowledge or consent of the directors secured the money on them, knowing at the time that Mr. Shur was insolvent and the notes worthless. The next four causes of action are similar to the first four except that L. S. Taylor figures as tlie maker of the notes aggregating $17,500. The other causes of action are based upon similar charges, and in a second suit brought by the bank Mr. Ashby is made defendant on three promissory notes aggregating about $50,000, which amount it is claim- ed he borrowed from the bank while its president, and without the knowledge or consent of the directors. (.ira pd Entertainment, Social, Supper and Dance.. f A grand entertainment, supper, i and dance will be given at the Miners' Union hall, Monday August 5th, for the benefit of the school fund. The citizens of Lump Gulch have, during the past three months, enjoyed a privilege un- usual in a mining camp as young as ours of having a well conducted school in our midst. As is well understood by all our citizens the expense of this school was to have been met by private subscrip- tion, and at the time of engaging a teacher a sufficient amount had been subscribed which if it all could have been collected would have paid the en- tire expense and left no 'debt standing. But from various causes not anticipated at the time of subscribing, many have been unable to make their payments, hence those having charge of the matter are confronted with a ilefluit and as the \laborer is worthy of his hire\ some- thing must be done to raise money to pay the teacher, and sustain the good name of our town. As a means, there- • fore, of raising the money, and at the same time of returning to those wh6 contribute an equivalent, it has been de- cided to give a supper and ball at the Miners' Union hall. Not only will there be a supper and dance, but a good social time as well. There will be ice cream, strawberries, lemonade and refreshments served from booths in the hall. Various garnee and attractive entertainments, so that all can participate, and in addition to doing a charitable act have a royal good time. The citizens of Lump Gulch have al- ways been found public spirited and thus far have never faltered in a public duty. We trust they will not misa this opportunity to place themselves on re - 'cord. The cause is meritorious and just the amount to be raised due. Let all respond with cheerful hearts and an open pocket book. Mr. McCann, the druggist, is now act- ing as local agent for the Lump City Townsite Development and Mining com- pany. Mr. Gable has not been serving in that capacity for sometime past. The Hartford Pioneer, an alleged newspaper, whose early demise we noted last week, takes occasion in its last dy- ing wail, to arraign Helena for her fail- ure to make its business profitable. The editor of this little two by four sheet, which never got out of its swad- dling clothes, tries to make it appear, in his venomous way, that Helena has not only failed in her support of him and hie asinine publication, but the district as well. This, however, is wholly untrue as the growth and development of Lump Gulch as a mining camp is largely due to the enterprise and energy of Helena business men and the investment of Helena capital. This, however, is not saying that all the business men of Helena have accorded that support to this camp which the business they are receiving would justify us in expecting, nor like Butte, or other cities which have received and are receiving benefits from thegrowth and development of the camp has failea in a just recognition of its merit. But the business men of Helena, and we may add, Butte as well, (-an distinguish between the sham and the real, the substantial from the ephem- eral, hence the early decay and untimely death et the Pioneer. Mr. F. E. Cornish has purchased the Boulder Age. Mr. Cornish is capable of giving the people of Boulder a good paper, and making of the Age what it never has been since it started, a credit- able Jefferson county publication. We can now look for the disappearance of seven words concentrated into one, and ;the publication of a lot of omelet's county records of no interest even to the jnan who compiled them. Mr. Kennedy sought to make an Age out of an Age entirely too fly for this Age. I amp City Court. One morning, some weeks ago, Lump awoke to find herself dignified by the presence of a real, live, animated judge, in the person of one of her oldest citi- zens. Sin that time her inhabitants have been doffing their hate with be- coming courtesy to \bis honeer\ upon the slightest provocation. This sort of thing was beginning to wear upon his nervous system and he Wan almost on the point of resigning -his high office to which he had been appointed by the county fathers declaring the ennui of his Aloe too wearing upon a once robust but now delicate organism, and that so much dignity, minus emolumento, was quite beyond his power of endurance. But now all has changed, that atmosphere of peace which has hovered over the gulch, like that calm which precedes a storm, has been disturbed; riots, routs and affrays have occurred and it became the duty of his honor to oil up the wheels of the court machinery and set the mill of justice grinding. The first case engaging his attention was an action brought by Ida B. Copper- noll vs. Martin Mulvahill, to recover an unliquidated board bill. Martin, who is a well known mining man of the gulch and who is spending his spare time and odd change sinking prospect holes, searching for greater wealth, declared that he had an offset against the bill and that when the court heard all the facts he would dismiss the action at the plaintiff's costs. The Judge presided at this, his first appearance, with dignity and aplomb— we don't know what aplomb mean % but that is the way he presided—ruling out evidence, sustaining and overruling ob- jections like a four timer. When the chips were all in and the game came to a show -down Martin turned up with a bobtail flush and Ida B. raked in the jackpot tr a pair of deuces. The next case upon which his honor was called upon to sit in judgment was an action brought by Mary J. Totten vs. Judge William 'Gibson on a charge of assault and battery. Both parties are residents of Clanoy, a suburb of Lump, and occupy the same house, each having separate apartments. It appeared from the evidence that there has been con- siderable friction between the parties for some time past which culminated in an open rupture and a declaration of war. Our newly appointed judge pre- sided with a dignity and solemnity in keeping with the gravity of the occasion and after listening to the plaintiff's tale of woe, and the defendant' plea of justi- fication, disposed of the ceee_with neat- ness and dispatch by imposing a fine upon the defendant of $10 and costs --- Nothing further occurred to disturb the judicial mind of his honor until Tuesday, when Madam Sarah Borren, a demi-monde of the town, rushed into his office with blood pouring from a lacer- ated lip and asked for a warrant for the arrest of an unknown man who had made a murderous assault upon her. This was promptly issued and placed in the hands of ad officer, but the' individ- ual who had probably felt the hand of the law before, \sniffing danger from afar\ and probably remembering that \be who fights and rune away, will live to fight another day,\ had shaken the dust of Lump from his heels and de- camped for parts unknown. LATER—Madam Borren appeared be- fore his hohor and withdrew the oom- plaint. Hartford claims to be the largest town in the state without a saloon. Tbere are as many as thirty people living in Hart- ford some daye. We learn that Mr. Keith, president of the townsite company, contemplates making Lump City his home at a future date, devoting his entire time to the in- terests of the district. Another season he will probably erect a residents() on the fine table -land west if Main street. Mr. Keith is interested in three or four very promising quartz lodes near this city, and proposes to identify his future with the good people of this enterprising dis- trict. The parties having in charge the mat- ter of securing the necessary funds for the establishment of a telephone line be- tween Lump City and Helena report that the amount has now been sub- scribed and that work will soon com- mence, and in a short time the line will be in working order, and then the citi- zens of Lump who want to talk with Helena can do so to their hearth con- tent.

The second and return game between the East Helena base ball clrib and the Lump City Giants was played on the grounds in Ohio gulch last Sunday and resulted in a draw game, each side hav- ing secured 11 runs each, when rain stopped further proceedings The Giants were unfortunate in not being able to get their regular nine together, their crack battery and left fielder being absent. AN it was, however, the game was a very enjoyable one and was wit - noosed by a large crowd of people from the surrounding country.
