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.
'Additional:Local. Becker. a prominent ranchman of Cottonwood creek, was a caller last week. Mr. Becker is the kind of citi- zen who believes in building up the country.

There are twenty people in the party and they - will pass through Lom- bard on theirreturn from Portland -the latter'ijart of tills month.

A n ace' dent occurred in tire construc- tion of the Citizens' Bank building which was entirely unlooked for by the .contractors. It is customary in • such buildings to leave a space between • window and door casings to prevent pressure when the building settles. This was done, but it seems that a pebble or some other object came be- tween the wall of the building and the large stone 'above the front window, cracking the stone in tiw center. The contrdctors will probably repair the damage in cutting out a piece and in- serting a keystone. • Graft in High Places. Annapolis, Md., Oct. 5. -Dishonesty in high places in the state, the judici- ary and greet financial institutions and corporations, and the palitation ot such acts by the masses gravely , threaten the future of the country, tee - cording to the' views expressed today by J.

He pointed tee the lessons . taught by the fall of the ancient Roman republic, the reign of terror in France and the ditutatersf which befell Itussian arms in the recent conflict in the far east, all of which, he said, were due to pat- .-. liaticedihonesty. \I hear Voices, from the east and voices from the west,\ he said, \ill - boding voices, voices from the pulpit and the diviree, voices from the col- lege and the educator, voices from .the bench and the bate voices from the Press and its sages, the voice of the president himself, denouncing in ring- ing tones and deploring the universal eeread of selfishness by its meanest and,most repulsive form -the ferns of distMestv.

Washington, Oct. 4. -Now that Prt el - dent -Roosevelt is back in the harness the \standpatters\ will probably liar something to their disadvantage. This applies equally to the \stanipatters\ on the tariff and the \standpatters\ on railroad legislation. The president will not settle down .to wore for the winter until after his 'southern trip, but in the meantime; he will have °peer- . unity to consult ‘vIth the leading men of his party and ascertain what chance dive is that congress will act upon the. recommendations in his annual message, now fairly !sketched out. That - congress- will revise the tariff at the coming session is scarcely possi- ble and, of course, revision at the short session is almost out of the ques- tion. Consequently those opposed to\ tariff revision have the upper hand for the present. The railroads and their friends are not so well situated, however. The feeling that there must be legislation of some sort designd to correct at least the more glaring evils -of discriminations and rebates is as Intense today as it was last winter. Notwithstanding the \campaign of education\ carried on so assiduously throughout the summer, the common people see in a consolidation of rail- roads, the extension of lines and the millions spent in terminals and other trackage, accompanied by vast issues of securities, that the already enorm- ous•power wielded by the railroads is Increasing rapidly. That power, po- litical as well as financial, is being concentrated' in 'the hands of a eery limited number of men, masters of the great railroad systems and, persaging the future on the experience of the pas, if powerful railroads here and there cab control the politics of a state it is reasonable to assume that a com- bination of those and other roads can dominate the national legislature. Sooner or later this .country. and es- pecially the republican party, will be compelled to face the problem of whether the affairs are to be conduct- ed for the benefleoUthelew to' the end' that enormous fortunes may be Pild Up, or whether- legislation must, uni- formly he directed toward the greatest good for the greatest number.

Helena, Oct. 7. -With a dash which marks the Montana spirit, the - third annual Montana state fair came to` a close tonight. It passed into history' as the finest concentration of the var- ied resources of -the state that has ev- er been prepared for the edification and .entertainment, of the people; and the consensus of opinion is that as an exhibition it was most successful in every way. That it will lead tO ft better and larger fair next year, housed In larger and more convenient -building, and that the representation Will be more liberal from all parts of the state, is already the talk, and plans are being considered for a `mew and modern grand -stand that will offer accommo- dation -for twice the number that crow into- -the present structure 'diring the past week. With the exceptiOn of today the weather has been all that could have been desired by a_most exacting pub- lic, and the throngs were bleased. To- day, however,.the weather was threat- ening froth the start, and about the time the . racei, became most interest- ing huge clouds appeared in the west,: and soon the rain fell. Racing was suspended for a ehort time, while the, visitors sought shelter on the upper tiers of the grand stand and in the betting sheds. -The sun came out again, and a proniisitig 'rainbow ap- peared in. the northwest. It was only a bluff, however, and soon the rain- bow hid behind the clouds: The clouds opened again and an annoying 41t1Ii fell during the balance of the after- noon.

Last Thursday evening the entire populace of the city_was aroused when a terrific explosion occurred Which rocked the buildings and jorred -the nerves of the people as though they had been in the vicinity of the islana. of Martinique, under the -,shadow of Mount Peele. The explosion occurred at about 3:;\.) _W-clockein the evening_an_d at this writ- ais profound a thYstery .as to where' or 'how it occurred as it -was at the time of the occurrence. The city and counter ofilcers. made every effort, be locate the source and cause of the explosion but to no pur- pose, and the strongest point of the phenomena is the- fact that it seemed to each individual to be right in the immediate, vicinity of his particular locality. -For the first two or three days after the explosion it was the sole topic \of conversation, but despite the inquiries _made by- the different pee- ple of the city, there has not been the 'slightest information elicited as'eco the cause or the location of 'the explosion. Some -have adaanced the theory that it was doniby some boys More as a jest than anything else, and yet, tO 'make the concussion felt -here would require at least 60 pounds of giant powder, perhaps more, and this would be rather an expensive passtime.

Just why this ashohld be called the \Campbell\ system Mr. Lansing is at a lose to know. -There was a man named Campbell who was doing some. experimental farming for the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy rail- road ) and used this method, and by some means managed to have his name attached to it, but It has been In use for many years, the Mormons of Utah practicing it largely. fee' CO., Helena, Montana, But the greatest enemy the farmer' have to contend with in this country, according to Mr. Lansing, is the Rus- sian thistle. The plant has already ac- quired an extensive foot hold and each year increases Its dominion. The coun- try being mostly devoted to cattle and sheep, no one pays any attention to the thistle, but if the dry farms should ev- er become a factor worth considering around here, the fight with the thistle will by that time have become a seri- ous problem -in fact, for Mr. Lansing, it is that already. Mr. Lansing recommended that next year a farm be started in the Pine hill countrY, as there, if anywhere, an ex-, periment should succeed. V. • • • e
