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.

Taking it for granted that all in- telligent people know the history of that period, it will suffice to say that among the \straight-out\ recession - iota in the convention one of the brightest and most eloquent was Jas. P. Holcembe, who had resigned the law professorship in the university to take part in the great political battle of that day. upon -roll-esti at its organization, were members of the convention, re he found to be more than two to one against secession. The sessions Were continued through weeks and weeks. Finally the \straightouts\ determined to take advantage of the information they had received by the \grapevine telegrae\ (as secret in- formation was then termed) to the effect that President Lincoln was about to call for 75,000 troops to \coerce\ the South, and in caucus they selected two as spokesmen on tbe ocCasion. These were Janes P. Holcombe and, George W. Ran- dolph (afterwards Davis' secretary of war). The plan was to move the adop- tion of the secession ordinance and trust to the effects of the speeches of these two gentlemen and of the call for 7N,000 troops to secure the ma- jority vote in its favor. No step was left untaken to secure immense out- side pressure. The hall was packed with the beauty, wealth and influence of Richmond and the entire state. It was a magnificent assemblage, strangely contrasting in point of ap- pearance with the solemnity which pervaded the floor where the mem- bers sat. Behind the speaker's chair the United Stites flag gracefully being, its stripes and glittering stars perfectly distinct iti all parts of the hall. A signal, unnoticed by the assem- bled multitude cal!ed a member to his feet with a motion TO ADOPT THE RESOLUTION dissolving the connection of Virginia wislohe United States government. The resolution was read amid a si- lence that could *1 most be felt. Just then a messenger hastily bore a tele- g etni down the central aisle and handed it to G. W. Randolph. All eyes were turned toward the.seat lie i occupied. At this instant the silenee was broken by the words, \Mr. Chair- man!\ and every face turned upon the man who uttered them, while the presiding officer recognized \the gen- tleman from Albemarle --Mr. Hol- combe.\ It is not now nor here , proper to outline the fervid oration —for it was an oration—Mr. Hol- combe delivered. The purpose of this article is to narrate the incident before alluded to. Mr. Holcombe had caught the eye, 13 1-2 Main St., Helena. ,ear and heart of the vast throng by his first titter:Ince, and he held them, painfully strained, as each powerful sentence rolled over the bowed heads of the patriotic \union men\ about him. Al the end of a superb utter- ance a page quietly handed him the telegram before mentioned. A quick glance at it was enough. In a mo- n.ent the orator seemed twice his usual size. Straightway lifting high his splendid bead and with white hand .throwing back his dark, waving hair, in a tone that rang clear as a bell, lie said: \The president of the convention, in his opening address, most beautifully and felicitously di- rected our thoughts to the flag of our country, which so fitfully and grace- fully adorns these walls. There was expense of alling.

MI f• sew heart 'leaped with enthusiasm when- ever that flag was unfurled. I saw in its glorious fellowship of stars and stripes a pledge of mutual friend- ship, a symbol of equal strength and liberty and a type of common fame / 'forever. It was followed by the 4 -benedictions of patriotism wherever it floated, whether in the holidays of peace, nights of tempest or days of battle.\ [At this point he paused, looked over the vast audience for a moment, and teen opened and read aloud the telegrani aforementioned. , Had is bomb burst amidst that as- semblage it would have been no more startled. It told of Lincoln's call for .75,((X) troops to fight the South. Not a sound broke the ter- rible stillness that followed its read- ing till Holcombe riontintied] \But when I think of that flag lending its lustre and its sanction to the mock- ery of free government that now dis- honors this land; when I reflect (holding high the telegram) that at this moment it is waving over sat- ing batteries of destruction seeking with shot and shell to reduce to ashes Southern cities, and is borne in advance of Northern armies, car- rying the desolation of fire and blood through Southern homes [sensation throughout the hall], the stars that beamed together in light and glory fade from my vision. I sea but the EMBLEMATIC STRIPE in the red field of blood, and turning pained and indignant from the dese- crated banner, the native sentiment of liberty and patriotism comes burst- ing from every fountain of feeling - within my bosom! Gentlemen of the convention, the true colors of our country are the spirit and prin- ciples of ,our fathers! Let us live under them in freedom, or perish with them in honor!\ When the echo of the last sentence, that rang out like a bugle call to battle, had died away and the spellbound spec- tators could find voice zo shout, there arose such a storm of applause and sympathy as has never since been heard in that historic city. There was no need for more words. The question was nut and the ordinance passed by a greats majority. Hol- cotnbe's eloquent tongue, aided by Lincoln's demand for troops, did the work that was followed by so much of death, misery and woe; of ruined homes and hopes. In a quiet corner of the garden at his home in Charlottes- ville, in the shadow of Monticello, where Jefferson lived and died and was buried, James P. Holcombe's ashes repose. From the rocky ridges of Virgin- ia's mountains and the green valleys beside her western rivers, to the sandy shores where mad Atlantic's waves forever break -a conquered foe—are many and modsst memorial tombs of her mighty dead. Scat- tered throughout the world are her sons --the \soldier boys\ of that pe- tiod--dragging at each remove a lengthening chain; and to those of them who -are in 'Montana to -day, this little article is especially direc- ted; for though it will bring back memories of dark days which, thanks to God! have departed forever, still, in this era of peace and buried ani- mosities, it is believed that to those who were buttoned in the blue it will serve, for the . men why were the gray, as a passport of friendship and a letter of introduction.

Dr. Juliet Monroe Thorpe, daughter of Ohio's President of the W. C. T. U., Mrs. Henrietta L. Mon- roe, has been elected to the faculty of the Ohio Medical College, at Cin- cinnati. This is a rare compliment to a gifted woman. A daughter of Ogden Braille, of New York, and, niece of Bishop Neely, of Maine, .hlts won a diploma from the famous Paris School of Med- icine, passing a brilliant examination and receiving the maximum mark. Her thesis was \Iodism and for an hour and a half she was shrewdly and ably questioned by four of the lead- ing professors of the school, each of whom had been provided with a copy of the thesis. She wore _the black gown and white fiehu prescribed for candidates. Two sisters were the first to open an establishment in Chicago where type -writing was done to order, and stenographers were furnished for all kinds of reporting. By accuracy in their work and promptness in keeping their engagements, they developed a large and renumerate business, which they held against all competi- tion. Miss Marian E. Sheldon, daughter of Mr. W. E. Sheldon, has recently admitted' to the girls school of which she is principal, in Adabazar, Turkey, the first Moslem girl who ever en- tered the lists for a regular educa- tion. Miss Sheldon began teaching iti the language after being in the country five months. Site has trans- lated two American text -books into the Armenutn. Adabazar, 'where she is located, is one hundred miles of Constantinople. The turkish gov- ernor of the province has, through the agency of Miss Sheldon, become much interested in the education of girls. Crushing Tyranny.

Indeed the whole bearing of these quiet Western folk in private life is in singular contrast to the blatant loudness of the American women who came here in search of notor- iety- a goal which they attain, if ever, by the aid of stuffed corsets, pearl powder and bad language. By the way, there is good reason for the quiet smile of con- tentment which decorates Buffalo Bill's face now. It is all very well for dutchcss ess and countesees to rave about Col.
