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.

During the pant week all has been \quiet on the Potomac\ ao far aa the ad- ministration of justice within the sacred preoinote of his Honor's court room was concerned, buta new disturbing element has appeared upon the Beene. Not only has it appeared but all indication, point te its becoming numerous, and it has not only obaken his Hoiaor'e confidence in himself as a man, but threatens to de- stroy his previously established notions of the majesty of the lave The particular parasite which is just now inflicting iteely upon the commun- ity and over which his Honor is expect- ed to exercise his official and judieiai functions, appear under all manner of circumstances and conditions. Some- times with a pack upon their back, with a one-horse layout or with a double team outfit. Peddler is the cognomen by which these individuals are known to the public. They are an eyesore to the local merchants. In casting about for sources of revenue they were not overlooked by our legislators, and are required before commencing operations to procure a license, and here is where interest in the matter attaches to our local representative of the common- wealth of Montana. Whenever one of these travelling mendicants hovee in sight a lurking suspicion at once takes form in the mind of some party interest- ed that he is sailing under false colors and he straightway hies himself before his Honor and demands that he inter- cept this son of lento], call a halt and demand the countersign. This he has always done with that stately majesty that attaches to his high office and person as well, and his authority in the matter has never been questioned by those engaged in this unholy pursuit, until an unregenerate son of the lost race appeared one day this week, and when called upon to hoist the national eolore and sail in review before the tribunal of justice, he positively refused, and with a nerve as astounding as it was monumental, demanded of his Honor that lie show his pin or other emblein o? authority. This wholly unlooked for exhibition of insubordination for a moment paralyzed our judge, but quiekly recovering himself he threw the strong arm of the law about the °trend- er and he now languishes in durance vile In the meantime his Honor is diligently delving into the mysteries of Sanders' erstwhile ten dollar codes try- ing to locate the limits and bounde of his authority as an ofbcer of the law. The Dance at Wickes. A number of our gay and festive young men attended the dance and con- cert at Wickes last Tuesday evening, among them were Henry Carver, Foster Senecal, Kay Reed and Ernest Ennereon. The boys all report an enjoyable time from • social standpoint but say that the concert, having been arranged by Editor Bailey, of the Piisneer, was a long drawn out and equally as wearieome as some of his labored editorials. And some of them also came home exceed- ingly hungry, not because there was not a sufficient supply of provisions under ordinary circumstanees, but it appears that the long sojourn of Editor Bailey in the unhealthy atmosphere of the dy- ing town of Hartford, had so emaciated his over robust forai that the good people of Wickes have not at; yet been able to satisfy this cravings of hin appetite. and sniffing the good things from afar he got in his graft before th• boys were aware and v.ilien they came upon the 1 , 1,19f10 nothing but cruets remained. It also seems that Foeter Sensioal not only managed to have a b riti.d time by having a solid girl all to himself hut by a neat arrangement eon- oiseted beforehand suoceeded in making Mr McGregor pay for it. MIR. Belle Moore, nee i:risseinger. left the city a few days pence ter olOrfiri0 to look after property inter' -te there. It is to be hoped that when she returns work will be resumed on the Mary Spring mine.

Th• roads hereabout are fine for the wheel and hardly a day passes with- out several being seen in this locality. Winslow (It Griffith, of this city, have purchased the stage and transportation business from William Sherman. By close attention to details Mr. Sherman established a good paying business in the freight and transportation line between this city and Helena, with the home office at this end of the line. There is no reason why Messrs. Winslow it Griffith should not increase this business and they no doubt will. The school census of this district has just been taken to ascerti-in the number of children of school age who are reel dente of the (listrict, in order that the apportionment of school money may be made for the current year, for the main- tenance of our public schools, according to law. In all, there are two hundred and thirty-four children in this district (District No. 1), one hundred and thirty-four of whom are credited to Lump. The number of ohildren of school age will, of course, be somewhat smaller, but will be considerable of an increase over that of last year. Gold iii Nevada. In the present geld renaissance Nevada is the slowest of States, The common- wealth that so long astonished itself and the rest of th• world with silver mines that paid a clear profit of hundreds of millions of dollars, has appeared to cling to the memories of the past rather than realize the possibilities of the future. There are signs of awakening. Nevada prospectors are beginning to feel that the old Silver State is not destitute of gold; that the mineral wealth of that arid region is not confined to silver alone, and that, if sought for, paying gold properties van be found. There are plenty of places in Nevada that are rich- er in gold than in silver. The old days of the ohloricler will never return. A lino drawn from St. (orge, Utah, to Lakeview, Oregon, would bisect the state, and the territory lying in Nevada to the westward of that line will some day be found to be as rich in gold as. barring the Comstock, it was ever found to be in silver. -Mining and Scientific Press. Business in n. In aiioordance with a dispatch from the City of Mexico, dated August 9th, 0Ś95, business was never in a more flourishing condition in that country than at present The condition of things in the sister republic is the tier, best Argument the friends of the white metal in this country can possibly use. The dispatch is as follows: The banks show aggregate cash on hand of over 0(X), the the largest amount of metallic money ever held by the banks of this city. Private bankers and wealthy indi- viduals hold about $2.5,000,000, making the aggregate available cash over $60,- 000,000 in this i•ity alone. Reporte from interior cities indicate a similar plethora of money. Trade is better than last year and crop prospecte are excellent. Railway oorporations are the only ship- pers of dollars at present, as bankers are awaiting a more favorable price for silver. It is believed that the moult of this accumulation of cash will be the precipitation of an era of epeculatite activity. Important railway iaincemeions are being made almost daily unit a new era in railway construction is beginning. feulerai government revenues are uery satisfactory and exceed the antivi patione of the treasury department, whieh had looked for greater quiet in business during the present rainy NO5II4In. Heavy rereipts from revenue ritarn pH indicate considerable movement in business. Importations via Port Tampioo for the terminus find rolling stook inadequate. Mr. Beattie, of Helena, was a \ t.)
