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.

Valitoni rendered' a decision last week holding that thel pall tax dtatutes of Montana are un- I constitutional and void. 'B. C. Pohl as plaintiff commenced! an action against the \Milwaukee\; railway company as e defesdat to re - over $90.35 and the defendant in- terposed an answer admittng a lia- bility of $88.35, but alleged that $2 V.011 paid to Powell county for the 'plaintiff's 'poll tax. The plaintiff con. tended that the poll tax statutes were unoonstiational and moved for judg-1 ment on the pleadings, claiming that; the payment of the $2 to Powell !county was no defense. The court su Itained the contention of the plain- tiff and judgment was rendered. The actioa is a test case, being financed by all of the unions in Mon - tame for the purpose of testing out the poll tax law, and will be carried to the Supreme Court for final de- termination.
