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.

As long as we maintain the Monroe doctrine, retain the Phil- ippines, control the Panama ca- nal and dominate the Pacific, which is our manifest destiny, we must have an any adequate to care for these conditions and meet emergencies. No one advo- cates a large standing army in this country, but we ought to have as a military organization an stymy of efficient officers and drilled men which can be aug- mented by trained men from a reserve and supplemented by the national guard of the states. There has been a great deal of general discpssion as to the ne- cessity of -better preparation for sudden war emergencies, and there seenks to be quite a unani- mous opinion that at the present time our army is wholly inade- quate owing to the methods that have been employed. I am heart- ily in favor of such changes and ilnprovements in the army as will meet existing conditions. We ought not to leave ourselves In an attitude where we fear the possibility of invasion by Japan on the Pacific coast or by any other foreign country on our At- lantic coast pOr in apprehension as to what 'night happen to our troops in case of intervention in\ Mexico because the army is in- adequate for emergencies.—Sen- ator G. E. Chamberlain of Ore- gon. Fergus county has received a beau- tiful silk banner as a token for its fine display at the - state fair this fall. It is now at the county seat. The banner is hand painted and contains the state seal in the center, with an inscription that tells briefly the story of the purpose of the award. This award wee made because Fergus had the best display and arrangement of exhibit of any other Montana county, getting first prize in competition with all others.

A COMMUNICATION Moore,, Mont., Nov. 6th, 1913. Editor, Inland Empire: , The article on street liglits in yqur last issue is very timely. It is a fact that the lamp at the railroad cross- ing has been neglected by some one and as has been remarked by a sales- man who makes regular trips to 1 Moore, that the depot grounds ana surrounding_blocks are so dark and dreary that somewhere about must be the residence of Gloomy Gus. Such Conditions should not he tol- erated, Moore is an incorporated town and its Mayor and board of Aldermen sliould take pride enough in town affairs and get busy and see that conditions are changed. Some one in authority should be on the job, so to speak, all the 'time i but it seems that such matters have , beep - allowed to drag from time to time until it seems to one who is not familiar with conditions in Moore that there is no use asking questions regarding matters of this kind. In closing the article above re- ferred to, the lines, \Let us keep Moore on the map,\ are good. /I the local commercial club will put in a supply of prodding poles they might be able to wake up'some of the resident, who seem to have lost all . interest in the town. ' Let us have lights. Work hard for that custom flour mill; put new life in the commercial club. Talk to the Mayor and see that' he personally gets busy and looks after all matters in detail pertaining to all affairs that in any way, will add 'to Moore's betterment. It will only be a short time until Moore has its usual position on the map if all get busy. A Reader of The Empire. ELECTRIC SPARKS. . Neighbors ought to get together for , something besides funerals. Yes it is a triumph for justice for Governor Sulzer to be thrown out of , .pffice and Boss Murphy put there in i his place. It is said that every time a woman carrying a hand bag crosses London •Bildge there is a panic in the houee of commons. Massachusetts has a population of 8,366,416. Of these 1,711,168 are ft , males. The others were candidate for Governor. ‘ War with Mexico would also be useful in providing a new crop of .. heroes. Those left. over from 1848 are becoming rather shopworn. Speaking ot baseball—if your boost- ing percentage in this town were as high as Ty Cobb's batting, how much better the community would be. The Literary Digest has an article on \Stopping the Waste of Gas.\ And yet it never once -proposes to shut down Congress or the Chautau- qua. • Americans are planning to build a hotel in Tokyo which will be a repro- duption of one of the New York ',hos- telries. If they reproduce the New Yorii Prices the long talked of war with Japan will probably materialize promptly. '7 Billings ; Mont., Nov. 12.
