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.

Hum SALARIM DO not insure high- grade men in public office. That is a well-known fact which the Constitu- tional Convention should bear in mind in fixing the salaries for the officers necessary in the State of Mon- tana. The best paying offices in the United States probably are, those in the city of New York, but the city of New York ia not noted for .having particularly able or upright officers. THE YOUNG /es of. Mr. L. H. Hershfield, of _Helena, banker and chairman of the Republican Territori- al Central Committee, turned up miss- ing in New York city, where he had been stopping with his mother, re- cently, and a day or two later his body was found in the river. The boy, who was about' fourteen years old, had played truant from school and while fooling around the docks had evidently fallen into the water without being seen by any one and was drowned. THE FIRST NUMBER of the 'Granite Mountain Mir, published at Granite, Deer Lodge county, made its appear- ance at Tax AGE office this week. It is published by J. W. Swartz & Co., at $3 a year if paid in advance, or 84 if not paid in advance. The paper is a five -column folio and will be devoted to the local news of the Granite Mountain mining camp.

HENRY VILLARD In Helena one day last week, though he did not get nearer the city than the Northern Pacific depot. Of course. the town turned out to greethim and the usual style of speeches were made by both sides. Judging by the 'males in the list of Mr. Villard's traveling cœnpanions, the gentleman is stil! fond of running with' the English dudes and titled gentlemen, so many of whom he brought to the -Golden Spike celebra- tion six years ego and .who occupied his attention. to the exelusion of Moe - tana people to whom he had to look for a considerable support. AN EFFORT iebeing made to secure a one -cent rate over the railroads from Montana to .the National Encarrip-' ment of the Grand Army at Milwau- kee next August. It is qoubtful if such a rate can be secured from Mon- tana, though' all eastern roads give the rate, bat_ TIM AGE believes it would be a profitable investment on the part of the railroad Companies to give it: A very large,„, number of Montanians would take advantage of such a lnw rate, und the advertising which they would give to thlg country would be ultimately if not immediate- ly or immense advantage te every railorad doing business with Montana. The excursion rates frein the emit last summer were leas than this rate and' it is 'hardly probable that the 'com-. ianies lost any money by giving them, while the advertising and permanent settlement of the country would not approach near to what might be gained py ike - rate from this end of the line. AGAIN tximka.i the report that the Flathead Indians ai - \Qon the warpath, and Misisoula all torn up in conse- quence.' The affair pill probably simmer down to nothing, as have numerous eimilar outbreaks. The trouble this time ciiineé from the ef- fort of the Sheriff of ›lis ‘ soula county to arrest two or three Indians sup- posed to be implicated in the murder of two prospectors a year or two ago. As a white Man who murdered an Indian was recently released without more than a preliminary examination, the rougher element among the In- dians naturally oppose the trial by the whites of any of their tribe, and having combined to protect their fellows against arrest, the whole tribe is credited with engaging, in an out- break. There is a considerable num- ber of bad Indians among those Flatheads in Missoula' county, but the same fact can be truthfully stated of the whites in the. county, and be- tween the two they keep the good people of both colors in 'constant un- easiness. the new court -house on Fourth of July morning by half past nine o'clock. The people of Boulder ixtend to their friends and neighbors a hearty Invitation to join 'in the celebration, and promise to do everything possible to make the day an enjoyable one. , BOARD 0141EALTH. Chapter thirteen or the Fifth Divis- ion of the conipihrd laws of Montana provides- that the County Commis - Bienire - of each county shall appointai' intelligent person who shall be a li- censed physician to act With the Board of Commissioners ands eon- atitute Board. of Health._ Although the 'statutes make this appointment a duty on the part of the Board of Commissionars, it, seems to have been , neglected in Jefferson county in the past., probably because there was no apparent need of a Board of Health. With increasing population, however, there has come a necessity for a Board of Health: People neglect all sanitary rules unless they are enforced by law, and the - result is that there is hardly a town in the county which is noisuffering the.penalty of violating natural laws of health. Unless some- thing is soon done to clean up the pig - pule, the old stables, the privies, and time other out -houses in the block back of THE! AGE office, everybody who has to wark in the office will be sick, 110 doubtless other people. •are suffering from similar causes in all parts of town except where the houses are few and widely seperated. Elkhorn has Mr the past few months had an epi- demic of scarlet fever which has taken from the hearts; of their friends several bright and lovable little ones. While good medical attendance has perhaps checked this epidemic, it is bound to return if the town is allowed to re- main as friihyna it usually is. Wickes has an epidernic of scarlet fever now raging which is growing worse every day and is probable due to lack or public cleanliness. With these indisputable facts in view, it wauld seem impossible for the County -Commissioners to further neglect this important duiy, and it is to be hoped that at the next meeting of the Board a physi- cian will be appointed and a Board of Health organized, and that this Board will take imme- diate steps to protect the health of the several communities located with- in the county boundaries. _ THE FOURTH OF JULY. The preparations for the Fourth of 'July celebration in- Boulder are pro- gressing, and the indications are that the afthir will be a grand success. The committee of arrangements is arrang- ing a very interesting and attractive programme and undoubtedly 'many I people will be attracted to Boulder to assist irt celebrating the anniversary at the nation's birthday. • The ladies of Boulder are taking up their part of the affair with great en- thusiasm. The cavalcade will be a great feature of thé procession, and the ladies who take pate will he gaily,to decorated. Another attractive feature of the procession Will be the Car of Liberty, which wil; be in .charge of Mrs W RETROSPECTIVE. - the oration on the corning Fourth of July. How many will be there who will recognize ia,Mr. Miles Cavanaugh the juvenile orator of the Fourth of July celebration at Amazon thirteen years ago? X. Y . Z. ACCIDENTS. A young son of John D. Ripley, of Radersburg, was bitten by a dog last Monday, but it is thought not badly. Mr. Murray, while working on the addition to Jo. Street's house one day last week, lost his footing and fell to thé ground, receiving very painful and perhaps serleas injuries. The old gentleman is getting along as well as could be expected, his age of course preventing as rapid a recovery as would be expected in a youngernmn. Last Sunday evening as Mrs. Chas: Lee and another lady were coming into the yard at Sheriff Halford'a re- sidence id 'Make a ,call on Mrs. Hal- ted, the big Newfoundland dog be- longing to the family grabbed Mrs. Lee by the arm and bit her,. the ani- mal's teeth . reaching through to the boue: Since -then the arm has swol- len considerably and there is some fever, so that there is possible danger of the wound proving a serious one. The dog has been considered rather dangerous by all who had any busi- ness at the house and has been ren- dered worse of late by having 'been poisoned only a short time ago, the poison not havingliad a fatal effect. He was iiumediately shot after biting Mrs. 'Lee, and Sheriff Hal ford prompt- ly_ made himself responsible for all inedical and other expenses which the lady will incur by the accident. BASE-BALL. The Philipsburg Mail of last week contained the following: \A game of base-ball bétvreen the Granite and Philip:shine nines' was played on the Granite pleasure grounds last Thurs- day and resulted in a victory for Philipsburg, the score being 16 to 8. The Philipsburg base-ball team is composed of the following. Wm. Quivey, catcher; Fred. Smith, pitcher; Nick Connolly, let base; J. Reynolds, 2d base; J. C. Argall, 3d base; Fred. Bielly, short-stop; Dave Pizer, right field; M. Quinn, left field; Dan. Brien, center field.\ The pitch- er here mentioned 'is Fred. Smith, formerly of. Elkhorn, who was one of the strong men of the Elkhorn nine which played the Boulder nine several games last Bumpier. The Boulder boys were badly beaten in the game with the Helena club at Helena last Sunday.. They did.some good playing but were not able to keep up their good work. They secured Donahue, of Marysville nine, for pitch- er, but he does not seem to have helped the Boulder nine very much, tlie sere standing twenty-two for } tlie Helenas to three for the Boulders. Tho Hel- enas made all their runs in five inn- ings, getting four goose -eggs out of the nine, so the Boulder must have done some good fielding. Perhaps the boys with practice may' give the Helena nine a close rub before the summer is over. There is little consolation, how- ever, in playing in such a club as that. It is simpiy playing hired players, in- stead of playing the young men of the town, such as the Boulder uine. is composed of. . — COURT NOTES. away from the white man. Then the latter preferred a charge that the younger colored man had pointed the gun at him alter getting possession of it. Much to the eurpriese of outsiders, the jury returned a verdict of guilty against the young man, whose naine in Thomas Maxwell, and assessed a fiue of MO as the penalty. RAILROAD NEWS', It seems to be reasonably certain that the Montana Central is to be «tended from Butte to Anaconda this summer and that the surveyors are already at Work laying out the line. Gov. Hauser has received a cable dispatch from Sir Alexander Galt, London, stating that the 'prospects were very bright for the speedy placing of the bonds of the Montana & Canada railroad,. from Helena to the Canadian Pacific and 'the great coal fields of the Northwest Territory. JEFFERSON AND HAMILTON. [Loulaville Courier-Journalj All that was original,_ that was distinctive, all that was 'different was the work of Jefferson. Hamilton sim- ply formed and put in operation the machinery ef government, and aa a political carpenter, a political me- chanic, he had no equal. • He accepted the past with all its lelacies of evil, and sought to modify them as soon as possible.' Jefferson looked into time as far as human eye could see and inspired . bx . these visions he marked out for the people a new path of glory and light. Jefferson was the philosopher; the teacher, the the- orist. 'Hamilton was the man of practical affairs; no dreamer of dreams; no believer in the theory that a democracy could teach nations of Europe a new art of government. Jefferson was the idealist; Hamilton was a realist, who believed in nothing which he &mid not touch or handle.

Few. only will remember this celebration but those who do, will perhaps remember an incident which to recall at the present time is not out ,of place, as the following Will show: The meeting at Amazon had been very spirited and after the speech of the day had been delivered, the audience demanded enthusiastically the appearance on the plattem of a Young lad, who had solar kept him- self modestly, in the background lis- tening attentively to the oration. The demand for his appearance be- coming more and mere determined, the youngster came pluckily iiit•ward, took the stand, and delivered an address that brought the enthusiasm to a high pitch and earned him a roaring applause. The clever lad who on that hot Fourth of July day at Amazon, and at the age • of twelve, delivered his maiden speech, has;ince grown into .manhood and, having preserved the pluck evinced on the occasion referred above, bas become one of the -brightest yOung lawyers of Montana. This year, the people of Jefferson county have called upon Miles Cava - Divorce suits were brought in the District Court this week by Mary . Ketchesou against Peter Ketcheson on the ground of desertion, and by Char- lotte Knapp against George Knapp on the ground of desertion and non-sup- port. A ease from Butcherknife gulch, in the northern part of the county, came .before Judge Fisk ailtl a 'jury the past week. Two parties, one a white and the other a black man, claimed a pony, each having a bill of sale. .
