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 AGE- • - BOULDER, MONT. WEDNESDAY, JULY 17, 1889. THE AGE is indebted to Dr. W. M. Bullard, of the Constitutiolial Cori- ventlon, for favors in the line df printed matter. ORANGE JUDD, the veteran editor of agricultural papers, made a trip to Montana last year and the result is a series of interesting articles in his paper ' the Orange Judd Fariner, pub- lished in Chicago. Him paper of course is an excellent one for farmers, and the attention he is giving to Montana should be rewarded with a large sub- scription list. • THE PREAMBLE to the Constitution, as presented to the Convention by the committee of which Mr. Bickford is chairman, begins with the assertion that \We the people of . Montana, grateful to Almighty `God for the blessings of liberty.\ This is'practi- cally an assertion that Almighty God favors a republican form of gov- ernment, an assertion which would probably be dissented from by the Christian nations of England, Ger- many, Russia, and other nations ( .--selteréag a mots» or lee( autocratic form of. goSernment. Any reference to any Supreme Being is out of place in the Constitution. Let the members take the Constitution of the United States as a model in dike respect. A DECISION from the Secretary of the Interior is to the effect that final proof on a land entry may be made befikethe Clerk of the District Court auywhere in the District in which the. laud is located. Thus, a heater in Jefferson county whose land lies with- in the limits of the Helena land-office may make final proof at Boulder, Helena, or Dillon. HON. A. R. JOY, of Park county. has introduced in the Constitutional Convention the proposition that none but citizens ofthe United States can be voters in, the,.State of Montana, ex- cepting of course such persons as have already acquired the privilege of suf- frage. The proposition is a good one, and THE AGE holes( to see it prevail. Mr. Joy has, however, coupled with this' an educational qualification, which, while not particularly objec- tionable in itself, is impracticablaslies sides being really unuecessary under the present election laws of -Montana. _Tux Northtemttern ihrnter and Breeder, published at Fargo, North Dakota, has added a Montana department to its columns, with W. W. Corbett; of Great Falls, as manager, and Great 'Falls is added to the title of the pa- per as a place of publication in con- junction with Fargo. It is 'eyident that the, future of Montana as an agricultural country is very promis- ing and that the miners and cattlemen will not be able to Maim that theirs are the, only great interests of the new State. The subscription price of the Farmer and Breeder is only 81 a year. - • - IT is To niz noes» that the Consti- tutional Convention 'avid go' to the' extreme limit in avoiding, any sem- blance of an acknowledgement of religion, in the State Onistitution. The Sunday-obsename'people are or- ganizing to move in this matter and the Convention will do well to be very watchful. The principle of these people was satisfactorily shown a short time ago at the meeting of thé Sunday Reform tiblivention hiSedalia, 'Missouri, when. Rev. W. D. Gray, the secretary, said: \I do not, believe that governments derive • their just ixiwers from the consent of the gov- erned.\ This is ‚'manifestation of the old church spirit which said that the people must obey God's. law as expounded by the churches, and thus formed the basis of religious perse- cution. The Convention can not be too careful on this subject. - - - - A SMELTER SITE. The managera of the Boston and' Montana inining company are still looking for a smelter site, and their attention is still being directed by in- terested parties to the Bighole river. If the people who are interested in the. growth and prosperity of Boulder have any enterprise about them, they will take immediate steps to present to the managers of this company the advan- tages which Boulder offers as a site for a smelter. It will not. need much eloquence to convince any good min- ing man that Boulder has advantages which can be equalled by few pointe in Montana and. excelled by none. If ores form a desirable factor in the location of a smelter, Boidder can satisfy the most fastidious. In the immediate Boulder basin, within a radius' of four or five miles, there are good mincit enough to supply a dozen large smelters with ore. All they lack is development, and with a market for the ore development would surely fol- low. Up the Boulder ,river, every canon eau show a nest of mines which aie promising and which wilt soon be paying, and the canone thus supplied with mines are many. Beyond Cal- vin's are found the Lowland and the Oro Fino districts, both of which promise to develöp rich properties and both of which are naturally tributary to Boulder. The Montana Central and the Northern Pacific railroads, both running through Boulder. pass within a few miles of these districts and both roads are likely to build branches to them within the next twelvelnonths. One of the canons opening into the Boulder below Calvin is the natural outlet forsantivisive and rich mining district latiewn as Eu- reka gulch ansi s the upper Basin, and embracing the southern slope of Red Mountáin and contiguous ranges. s To the southwest a few miles is the undeveloped Little Boulder district, where a number of good prospects are located mid where._ unquestionably many good mines will be worked in the near future. Ten to fifteen miles to the sonth - extends the Rig -foot dis - P gT groat n every direction, they must famous Holler mine yielding 835,000 a; de) -»op energy and enterprise enough month and which would yield ‚twice t o present before the proper parties and 'three times as much for - a Wu- I the many natural and artificial advan- eration to home if the owners cared to tagee which Boulder poetesses.

D., and innumerable Others, and the whole district is directly tributary to Boulder and will be connected With it by rail in a very few ménths. Then to the north and northwest are the many miles and prospects around' Comet, Wickes, t;regory, Corbin, Jef- ferson City, Alhambra, and Clancey, and all of which are within reach of Boulder by the N. I'. and M. C. rail - reads. It is, in fact, impossible to convey in words an a(1 tuate idea of the mineral resourceMv iich might be tributary to Boulder. Only a personal examination can do this, and the gen- tlemen who are desirous of locating smelters should be invited to make an investigation into the resourcée of Boulder and vicinity. As indicated above, Ilitulder . is not likely to be surpassed anywhere in Montana as far as transportation fa- cilities are concerned. It is on the main line of the Montana Central rail- road from Great Falls to Butte, com- manding the minerals of the latter and the coal of thelormer, and having direct communication with the ‚east by the Manitoba at Great Falls and -with the east and the tweet by the Union Pacific system at Butte. It is not at all improbable that the Mon- tana Central will build branches 'from Boulder- to. Elkhorn and other mining camps in the county. Boulder is also on the Helena and Butte branch of thirteen miles beyond Beulder, and - its early completion to Butte can not be doubted. Gov. Hauser, than whom the Northern Pacific has no better friend in Montana,: is persistent in urging its 'completion, and it will protfably be finished to Butte next year at the farthest. The Northern Pacific company has ordered the con- struction of a iiranch from Boulder to Elkhorn, the survey was completed last week, and it is probable that the grading will be commenced in a week or two and the road completed before snow Hies. This branch goes down the Boulder river nine miles before turning into the mountains to Elk- horn. The directors of the Northern -Pacific have promised that from this elbow the branch shall be extended down the Boulder river to a connection with the Galled!) and Butte branch, placing the Madison coney mines within the reach of Boulder and also placing Boulder in direct rail com- munication with the coal -fields of Gallatin and Park counties. But these are not the only railroads Boulder is likely to have. By refer- ence to the railroad news in this issue will not bring new industries here. WICKES BUDGET. !Special Correspondence of Tam Aar.] WICKES, July 5.—Tuesday of last week while three men were at work' preparing a place to put a set of tim- bers in the Alla mine a rock fell, with- out the least warning, and instantly killed a young mau named Ben Tem -- by, and a man, named Blight had two ribs broken. Teinby was a Cornish- man and well liked by all who knew him. He was very quiet and steady in hie habits, His father and mother live in the north of England and be had a brother at the Minah mine. The funeral took place ou the morn- ing of the 10th and *as well attend- ed, the Cornish boys singing very finely and pathetically borne *of the old Methodist. funeral hymns. Wm. Bartle conducted the service from the M. E. ritual. Supt. J. R. Gilbert and Deputy Mining Inspector Trevarthen attended the funeral. The sympathy of everybody in town goes, with Mr. and Mrs. Jack Bailey in' their bereavement. About three mouths ago they lost a little girl and -on the llth of this month death again visited their home and after a. few hours' sickness took from them their year old baby -boy, Francis.

Trevarthen, Deputy Mining Inspector, Prof. A. Raht, Joe Davis, and J. O. edam( were in Wickes last week. One of the furnaces is started again at the smelter. There is a great deal of ore coining in from the mines for East Helena, Great Falls, and the smelter here. The boys are in from the hills and report things looking well. Rev. S. J.
