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.

THE Manitoba graders are working within twenty miles of Benton. ON Saturday last the Manitoba track wss 82 miles this side of Fort Buford. WORK is being prosecuted in re- moving obstructions from the Upper Missoula. THE President took in the centen- nial celebration at Clinton, New York, on the 13th. Tne ancient burg of Blackfoot is still prospering. About 40 men are employed in the mines and all doing well. THE 12th instant was Chicago's hot day -96. It has averaged 81 for four weeks. The highest ever known there. Two Nez Perce Indians are making a tour of the reservations. They are Presbyterian iniseionaries; both speak English well amid were educated at Lahmi and in Portland. S. T. Ileuset, Montana's rustling ex -governor, -having just returned from the cast, it is reasonable to be- lieve that the contemplated branches of the Northern Pacific will be pushed to completion at an early day. Tins copper mines of the countrv have just conceived a scheme to raise the price of copper. All the princi- pal copper companies of the Lake Superior region are in the scheme., A rise would be a vast benefit to Butte. Sr. PAUL was visited with a plague on Wednesday night. Sand flies covered the buildings and ground and filled the air. In some places the streets and sidewalks were . cov- ered to the depth of Swro inches with the little pests.. e THE driving ttf IFge bands of cattle over 'the'' Se'f•yrilver bridge,, damaged it to an extetit as to make crossing impossible.. Thu. Benton and Helena stages go so . far and no farther. It has placed an embargo upon freight, and it will be several days before repairs can be made and travel resumed. _ Br the bursting of a dam near Murray, Idaho, on the 10th inst., the stage road was washed awae•--all the bridges on Prospect creek are gone. The stage containing the mail was lost, but the horses were saved by being unhitched before the flood reached them. One person, supposed to be a miner, was drowned. THE women of Indianapolis, Ind., are trying tee purify the city. They have secured a large number of dictments against owners and keep- ers of disorderly houses. It has been decided in some States that the own- er of a building let to a person who maintains it for immoral purposes is himself, legally, the keeper of the house. IT is tho opinion of Hon. Henry Wake that Win. Muth is still a mem- ber of the legislature. It will be re- membered that he resigned last win- ter, and afterwards the vote by which his resignation was accepted was re- considered. It is more than proba- ble that Judge Blake is correct in his conclusions. We hope so, as Billy is too good a member . to be left out. when important matters are con- cerned. Wsxmliston s .the Ilelena waterworks man, started for Benton this week. Desiring to feed his team by the way- side, he removed the bits while the team was hitched to the carriage. .1s might have been expected, the team took fright; the carriage was upset and Mrs. Wooliston was se- verely injured. It is astonishing how careless some people are when traveliug. A CONSTITUTIONAL convention is in session in Utah. The people are very anxious for self-government, amid as statehood is the only hope of receiving it, an effort in that direc- tion is now being made. It is not probable that Utah will be admitted %ere soon, but a good sign of the s times is the adoption of, a provision that polygamy shall be made a crime. This is indicative that the upholders of this relic of barbarism are fast leeing enst in their own home's. AN EXTRAORDINARY SESSION CALLED On Monday, July 11th, Governor Leslie issued , his proclamation con- vening the Montana Legislature in extraordinary' sessinn on the 211t11 day of Aug1. t next. The powers 31 and people Isf the Territory were nearly unanimous in proclaiming their disapproval of an extra session, but our Governor saw so many bad features in our laws that a high sense of duty to his adopted country and and her people impelled him to the course he has taken. The revenue law and the squirrel bounty law are the two obnoxioue measures de- scribed, but these are but two among many that should receiye attend n at the hands of the Legislature. It , is to be hoped that the convening of our law -makers new mark an import- ant era in Montana legislation. It is a fact, patent to all, that the laws as they now stand are almost as crude as the hand of man, can make them. If they act vell their part they will be entitled to and will receive the hearty com.eendation of all lovers of law and order; but should the mem- bers decide to follow in the footsteps of its predecessors the people will express their disapprobation in no uncertain sounds, and will bury every member of the body so com- pletely under the snows that no tropic sun will ever uncover them. The people of Jefferson County are anxious to know where the lines of' their county is, and it' is certainly not asking n great favor of the Solons to define them. The law compelling justices and probate judges to pay over juror feesto the tenuity treasu- ry is unjust and has no redeeming quality. • Persons serving in civil suits in said courts are entitled to and should receive the amount the law allows them in c - :aSts. The sum of $1.50 per day is less than the actual cot of livirries but when this is discounted 15 per cent. it becomes a burden • The law providing that the county shall pay all costs oF jurors in civil cases in the District Court is an outrage, and there can net be an honest voice raised in keep- ing it en the statute books. It has long been claimed that he who &ewes should pay the fiddler, aid this is more thee true when it comes to snaking the people of the whole county pay the expenses of a law suit between two private individuals, who in many instances never cotitri- bute a dollar to support the govern- ment which protects them. We do net con der the bounty law an un- : mitigat , d evil, but we are of the opinion ,that k should he so amended as to exclude prairie (legs, who by instinct, have their homes as far as practicable from the haunts of man. The deetruction of squirrels has been great and costly, but the money has been well spent; yet it is questiona- ble if the finaeces of the Territory will permit it to be retained with safety. , e OBSTRUCTING RAILROADS. The past month has developed a spe- cies of scoundrels hitherto unknown in Montana. This new species de- votes his time, and talent toplacing obstructions twon railroad tracks for the purpose of destroying trains, and thus wreak his vengeance upon the railroad company and its employes. Cases of this kind are becoming alarmingly frequent, and it is high time that the.miscreants were dealt with in a manner that they deserve. Our laws nerke the offence a Misde- meanor. This law should be amend- ed by the legislature which, will shortly convene iii extra session. A man who deliberately places obstruc- tions upon a railroad truck, should he punished by imprisonment for a pe- riod of not less than twenty years, and should loss of life or limb ensue by the derailment of a train, the offend- ing party should be 'punished with death. Unless miscreants of this class aro promptly and severely pun- ished, the fear of accident or death will deter people from riding on rail- roads. One man was recently ar- rested for air attempt at train wreck- ing near e•arrison, oil the Northern Pacific. He is now on trial at 1k-er Lodge. The members of time logis• lature should not lose eight of this niatter for it isamong the most im- portant that they will be called upon to consider. THE Parisians are greatly excited over the removal of Boulanger from the war office. The latest intelli- Lsenee is to the effect that thousands ef people are rushing through the streets shouting like demons. The German residents have been re- quested to keep within •(loots. THERE is said to be a schism in the ranks of the Knights of Labor. The :oes by withdrawal from he order is claimed at not less than 400 during the past. fourteen months. The loss is attributed to various causes, but principally on account of the Knights' interfereeee with other labor organi- zations. AN. EXTRA SESSION. - A Proclamation From the Covernor Convening the Legislature in Vxtra Seaslon on August 29th, 18S7. Whereas, There was passed by ttie legislative assembly of t le terripory of Montana at the last session thereof, an act ,entitled \An act relatink to a.ssessinfot and levy of trotea l ', ap- proved March the 10th, 1887, ender which and by virtue of its provisions, chapter fifty-three of the fifth division of the Revised Statutes of Montana, relating to revenue, nod all acts amendatort thereof are from and after the ffrst . slay of December, 1887, to stand repealed. And the said at of March the 10th is thereafter to bi) the law under which property in thef ter- ritory of Montana is to lme, asseesed tlir taxation and the takes levied and collected tor territorial and county purpteses; and, Whereas. There are grave doubts and much uncartaility whether the tribunal created by, said act and di- rected to assess certain property for taxation, to' leuy 'the taxes for 'terri- torial purposes, and to equalize all the ass.!ssments for each county, can under the statute legally proceed to organize and perform the duties as- signed it by said act; and, - Whereas, All powers and functions assumed under doubtful authority in such grave matters as assessment :Led taxation might lead to confusion, lit- igation and delay in collect* the revenues necessary to carry On the government; and, . . Whereas, there are other confu- sions and uncertainties in saki act: and, Whereas, all laws by whi'ch the agents of the governAlent make de- mand of the citizens Or taxes, ehould be so clear and eertain'as to preclude all doubtful construe -thins; and, Whereas, Said assembly pa4sed an act entitled \An act to amend aim act relating to killing certain animals,\ approved March 5th, 1887, which, tested by practical operation for three months and six days, promises to be a ruinous drain upon the public! treas- ury, having within this fraction of a year sent to the auditor's office and procured warrants Oil the treasury 'for over twenty-six thousand dollars; and, Whereas, Its demands were in- creased during the month Of June and first seven days of July milone to eighteen thousand dollars. And this experience of thirteen weeks, and particularly that of time last fi vti weeks, foreshadows and gives full warning that it would draw filen the treasury almost two hundred thousand dollars -within the two years befoie the elec- tion and organization of another reg- ular legislature; and, I Whereas, The mm em bers , iif the last assembly surely never contemplated imposing such large and questionab e burdens upon their constmtueits; and, Whereas, Serious errors appear in some other laws paseed by said legis- lature, which should be speedily cor- rected; and., • Whereas, There are other e rapidly iocreasing demands upon flit treas- ury under some existing lavis, which the public interests require, should he curtailed, and in other witys reg- ulated by further legislation; and, Whereas, The reasons for, calling tbe legislature in extraoidihary se: - sion were by .me submitted to the president of the United . Stj tea, and were be him duly approvo . on the thirtieth day of March, 1881. Now, therefore, I, Preston H. Les- lie, Governor of the Territory of Mon- tana, do by virtue of the poWer vested in me by the orga* act of said ter- ritory, and by the approval of the president of the United States, here- by order and call upon each and every membcr of the said legielative assembly of the territory onlontana, to attend and convene themselves in extraordinary session at Helena, the capital of said territory, on Monday, the twenty-ninth day of sISugust, A. , • I). 1887, at twelve o'clock In, of said day, to consider such impm tent sub- jects of legislation, and perform such duties as the general welfare of the territory may demand. In testimony whereof I have here- unto set my hand and paused the great seal of the territory! to be af- hired. Do' ne at Helena, ale capital, on this, the eleventh day Of July, in the year of our Lord, (mei thousand eight hundred and eighty -Seven, and of the independence of time United States of America the oie hundred and eleventh.
