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.

<•-• ,. - 74?err 1 are mathe• it conies to o C $3 a day, though why a large propor- tion ofséhern should• receive more the: one day's * pay is hard to tell. The salary of ten registry agents is put at $2,250, which is paying dieu' $5 a day fer thirty registry days, and also for the - fifteen days between the eloaing of the registry books and the opening of the poils. The rent of polling - places, erection of booths, de. is es- timated to cost 81,750, though as a matter of fact the cost will be extrav- agant at an average of $20 to the precinct, ‚ra total of $820 for the forty- one precincts. The Journal gives eighty-two special officers $400. but no such officers are required under the laws. Of course the* electiou laws can be made the means of bleeding the public treasury, but to do no will require the existence of Corrupt ejt- ezens and corrupt offices, who it may fifirly be presumed will not be round to exist, or if. there .are such men they will not be able to control the finan- cial affairs of the county.

WEDNESDAY, JCNE 12,1889. 1 Tas NEW COURT -HOU« will be dedi- cated to the cause of justice and the use of the county this evening at eight o'clock. There will be short addresses by gentlemen of the legal fraternity and others, music by the band, • and other exercises. Everybody is invited to be present. THE HELENA PA PERS maties' prodigies whe making estimates o esitts of carry- ing on a law, especially it is Rome - thing to which they have notiven a very . hearty support. The''Journal last %tek estimated that the State electidn next October would cost Lewis and Clark county $10,266, white the Independent placed the cost of the Australien system at $3,000. The Journal's estimate is an itemized one and therefore most easily handled. It puts the cost of printing ballots, names of registered electors, and elec- tion notices at $2,500. But the cost should not reach one-liethat amount. If 40,000 tickets should be needed under the ballot law, the- , should not cost over $200. The tickets required to be published in the papers should not coot more than $200. The cards of instruction for voters ought not cost • more than $50. The advertising of the registry agente should not cost more than $50. The only other print- ing included in this estimate is the lista of registered voters and $500 will be a very good price for them. This makes a total cf $1,000. The estimate of $2,250 for the books and blanks re- quired under the registry law is more reasonable, but still is doubtless very extravagant. The Juin -na/ gives 186 judges and clerks two days m'eh at Y. In replying to the article on the grand -jury system in last week's Ace., the Helena Ind#pendeHt attempts to create a prejudice against the system without eargument by calling it the relie and reminder of the star -chamber epoch of history. The ladepeadent evidently trusts that its reader, will not distinguish the difference between indictmeht and trial, ana that it may not discover this difference to them le does not attempt to show in what re- spect the course of procedure to be followed by the prosecuting attorney would differ froin that now pursued by thé gnuid jury. If the grand jury is abolished, the prosecuting attorney will have to (to the wórk of the grand' jury and in exactly the same way. He will have the power to summon and ex- amine witnesses as to their knowledge of crime cominitted. .11e will have the power to do this without notifying suspected parties or hearing theireid-- of the case. Otherwise, the prosecut- ing attorney would be an officeteleeted by the people to enablé criminels to escape frein justice. If thé prosecut- ing officer must hear evidence for the defence as well as for the prosecution before bringing an indiettnent, lie is practically made judge and jury as well as prosecuting officer, a combina- tion which would hardly further the ends of justice, hoW-eversatisfactory it might be to citizens who want, toavoid their necessary political duties. So much for the \star chamber\ bugaboo. The Inelependent says the proposed reform \would bring the control of criminel prosecutions several degrees nearer the people,\ a statement only supported by the argument that the prosecuting efficer is elected by the people and lucid responsible by them for the performance of his duty. while the grand' jury is selected by the slier - ill other °Meer, and a corrupt offi- cer may employ sixteen pliant instru- ments to do his will. The lisdependent does not seem to very clearly under- stand the method of seleàing grand juries. Further, THE Ami believee that as a general rule grand juriez are fairly representattve of the people from whom they are chosen, and when a prosecuting officer attemptato throw on the grand jury the blame for any neglect of duty on his part, he will find that sixteen tongues are better than one, especially when the sixteen are fairly reliable and influential and the one is supposed to be trained to do special pleading for a price. The /a s de -pendent must have a very queer idea of \centralization\ when it thinks the prosecuting officer nearer the people than the.grand jury. The Independent does not seem to want the grand jury en tirely abolished, No. 4.-0. W. SteinY ' agent; office at Alhambra, salary, $3 a day. No. 5.-J. W.
