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.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 1889. - e A SPECIAL TELEGRAM to THE AGE last evening announced that the Con- stitutional Convention had decided that the present county officers must go out and new ones be elected to serve until the general election of 1892—three yeara. such a law were wise in their day and generation. They well new that no real-estate owner would 'vote for pub- lic improvements unless the public could be compelled to pay for them, and so is seen the spectacle of Helena amul Butte and doubtless other cities expending the public moneys • in large amounts for the benefit of the , few. But what will be thought of a I people who will elect such Legislators? who will thus permit themselves to be bound hand and foot and robbed of everything but existence? Are they capable of self-government? Did not Congrese make a mistake in passing an enabling act for Montana? The Mining Journal and other papers are invited to give these gjuestions some thought. — -- THE MEMBERS of the Constitutional Conveution have made it practically impossible for Boulder, Bozeman, or other mnall places to compete with Butte and Helena for the location of the- permanent capital of Montana. Tho section providing for the perma- nent location says that the question shall be submitted to' a vote of the people at the general election of 1892. If no town receives a majority of the votes cast, the two places receiving the greatest number of votes cast are to be again submitted to the vote of the people. If in 1892, Anaconda, Butte, Boulder, Helena, Bozeman, Great Falls, Benton, and perhaps Deer Lodge, White Sulphur Springs, and other places, are in the field for the permanent location, there can hardly be a doubt but that Helena and Butte will be the two towns receiving the greater number of votes, and between these two towns the people of the State will have then to make their choice. It will not take many provisions of this kind to defeat the whole Consti- tution. The membereóf the Conven- tion do not seem to realize that their work is different from that of a Legis- lature in that it has to be submitted immediately to the direct approval or disapproval of the whole people. THE BUTTE Mining Journal:in speak- ing of varioua city improvements in contentemlation by the couucil, says: \If Butte is ever to be a city, time peo- ple must pay for it.\ Tile AGE would suggest to its contemporary that it make a study of the queation as to who should pay for Butte's becoming a city. To nine -tenths of the people who live in Butte, the building of the city makes no financial difference. Why then should they be expected to pay for it? The men who will be the most benefited by the building of the city are the lot -owners. They are the ones then who should pay for the building of the city, and not the peo- ple. If the people generally are com- pelled to pay for public improvements, they will practically have to pay two or three times for all the advantages they receive, while the lot -owner will pay nothing. If Butte puts down •a, sewer on Main street, every foot of land fronting ou the sewer will be en- hanced in value and the rent will be raised to correspond, and the people of Butte, directly and indirectly, will have to pay that rent. After paying for the sewer the people of Butte may object to paying the lot -owners this increased value, but they must do so or move out. As the coal -barons and the iron -mongers of the east say to their striking employés: \We can get plenty of men to take your place.\ In some countries where justice is sup- posed to exist, the rule prevails that the cost of improvements shall be as- sessed against the property improved. But in this \land of the free and home 9f the brave\ such an absurd custom can never prevail. Would the Mining Journal like to know why? Well, it is because the Legislature of Montana has provided that no man who is not a lot -owner can fill a seat in the city council. Your brightest, ablest, rich- est business men can not have a seat in the city government unless they are real-estate owners. The landed gen- tlemen who secured the pump of Schmidt, Sergeant, Toole (J. R.), CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION On Friday, August 9th, the Cone vention spent most of its time listen- ing to speeches by United States Senators Stewart, Reagan, and Plumb, and Major Powell, these gentlemen being the Senatorial Commission to examine and report on the practicabil- ity of establishing reservoirs in the mountain country by which the low- lands may be irrigated. After listening to the speeches of these gentlemen, the Convention post- poned further consideration of the capital question until Monday after- noon at four o'clock. The article on public lands was considered and the question of their disposition was left to the Legislative Assembly. The Convention then ad- journed. • But hide work was done by the Conventiou ou Satnrdity, August 10th, many of the members having gone home. The article on the public lands, as reported a few days before by Marshall, was adopted with only slight amendment, after which the Convention was adjourned until Mon- day. On Monday, August 12th, but one short session of the Convention was held, but in that session the capital question was disposed of, the mem- bers deciding that it should remain in Helena. temporarily, and that the question of the permanent location should be submitted to a v‚te of the people at the general eleetion in 1892. If at that time no place receives a majority of the votes cast, the ques- tion will be submitted at the next general election but only as to the choice between the two places receiv- ing the highest number of votes at the previous election. This of course knocks all the smaller towns out of any chance to secure the capital with- out au immense expenditure of mon- ey for electioneering purposes. The anti -Helena people have been outwit- ted for all time to come, or at least until the Constitution is amended. The following was the vote on locat- ing the capital at Helena: Ayes—Browne, Burleigh, Bnrne (A. J.), Burns, (A. F.), Buford, Bullard, Breen, Conrad, Collins, Cooper, Card- well, Carpenter, Chessman, Craven, Cauby, Callaway, Eaton, Fields, Graves, Gibson, Goddard, Gillette, HObson, Hammond, Hershfield, Joyes, Kanouse,Ioud, Mitchell, Middleton, Myers, McAdow, May-ger, Muth, Ma- ginnis Parberry, Rotwitt, Toole (J. K.), Witter—total 39. Nays—Aiken, Brazelton, Bickford, Courtney, Durfee, Dixon, Hartman, Hatch, Hogan, Kohrs, Kennedy, Knowles, Luce, Marshall, Marion, Reek, Robinson, Ramsdell, Stapleton, Winston, Whitehill, Warren, Mr.. President—total 26. Paired — Dyer and Kuippenberg, Haskell and Watson, Hickman and Rickards. Absent—Edward Burns, Gaylord, Joy, and Webster. The locations of the State institu- tions was then considered, but with- out disposing of the question the Convention adjourned. POLITICAL POINTERS. The Prohibitionists of Gallatin county are organizing for the cam- paign. The Democratic awl Republican priumaries for Jefferson county are to be held next Saturday. Judge J. C. Kerley is the only Democrat who has been mentioned so far for the District Clerkship. Postmaster McSorley is mentioned as a first-class mau to put on the Democratic ticket for County Treas- urer. Registrar Kerley gives notice that he will. be in Elkhorn OW Monday and Tuesday of each week to register qualified electors. Thomas Graves, Esq., of Wickes, has been suggested as a strong man for the Republican nomination for Sheriff. He is very popular wherever known. THE AGE office has on hand a few copies of the election law of Montana known as the Australian system of voting, which it will be pleased to dis- tribute among friends of the paper who desire them. E. G. Brooke of Whitehall, John Murray of Bedford, John Schreiner of Wickes, Amos Calvin of Calvin, and Miles L. Tuttle of Whitehall, have been mentioned for Legislative honors ou the Democratic ticket this fall. J. J. Cronk, Esq., will probably be presented to the Republican county convention by his friends for a Legis- lative nomination. He is a pleasant and popular gentleman and would unquestionably make a good race. Win. Noonan, Esq., of Woodville, P. B. Clark, of Crow Creek, and H. Raymond, of Bedford, are mentioned for the Republican nomination for County Commissioners. The same gentlemen are also mentioned in con- nection with, the Legislative nomina- tions. Sam Mackey , will come before the Democratic county convention for the nomination for County Assessor. Sam made an excellent run for the office last fall and had it not been for the land -slide in the other direction he would probably make a stronger fight than before. Hon. Thomas Joyce is spoken of as the choice of the Democrats of Jeffer- son county for the position of District Judge for the District composed of the counties of Jefferson, Beaverhead, and Madison. He would make an excellent officer, and would probably have no competition for the nomina- tion except perhaps Hon. Robert B. Smith, of Dillon. For County Commissioners the coming fall, Frank Wells of Raders- burg, I). 0. Warner and W. B. Gaff- ney of Boulder, A. H. Moulton of Jef- ferson City, are talked of by the Democrata, while the Republicans are considering the names of Jesse Pat- terson and A. H. Foster of,Boulder, H. S. Houghton of Red Rock, A. Macomber and ° Wm. V. Myers of Radersburg. Jildge Kerley, Registry Agent for this district of Jefferson county, ad- vertises that the next electron will take place on the eighth day of Octo- ber. The Judge is slightly off in his caleulations, as the election will be held on Tuesday, the first day of Oc- tober. Electors in this county should make calculations accordingly. The Judge also advertises that the regis- try books will close at ten o'clock at night on Sepnember 15th. As that day is not a legal day, being Sunday; it would be well for all who expeeto vote not to wait until that day before registering, as the a Registry Agent is not required to keep his books open on that day. The Democratic County Convention for Jefferson county is called to meet in Wickes on Saturday, August 24th, the several precincts in the county be- ing entitled to representation as fol- lows: Clancey four delegates, Jeffer- son City three, Boulder eleven, White- hall two, Fish Creek two, Lower Boulder two, Comet two, Cardwell two, Jefferson River two, Radersburg six, St. 'Louis one, Bedford three, Elacer three, Wickes eight, Elkhorn ten, Northside Boulder two, Basin four, Teu Mile two, Gregory two, Corbin three, Woodville three, Clasoil one, Bigfoot one, Grace one, Amazon two, Evening Star one, Calvin two, Alhambra one; Penn Placer nue, Elk Park four, Gold Flint one, Mitchell Gulch one. The primary meetings are to.beheld on Satui -day, August 17th, between noon and eight o'clock in the evening Toni Bave, of Boulder, will prob- ably come before the Democratic county convention for nomination as Clerk and Recorder of Jefferson coun- ty. Tom has a fine chirography which would adorn the books of the county. Under the new election laws of Montana the counties will print the tickets to be used, and no other ballot than that furnished by the officers of election can be voted. These tickets will contain the naines of all candi- dates whose naines have been certified to the County Clerk by the president or secretary of any nominating con- vention in the case of county officerm or by the Secretary of the Territory in the case of State officers. Persons who want to run for office and do not receive the nomination of a conven- tion must be nominated to the Coun- ty Clerk, in the case of county officers, by at least ten qualified electors of the county. The certificate of nomination must be filed with the County Clerk at least twenty days before the elec- tion (which this year will make Sep- tember 10th the last day for the filing of such certificate), and such certifi- cate must contain the name of the person nominated, his residence, his business, his business address, the office for which he is named, and the principle which he represents. Each elector signing such a certificate of nomination must add to his signature him place of residence, his business, and his business address. All the signatures need not appear on the same certificate. For a State office, one hundred such signatures are re- quired to make a nomination. JEFFERSON JOTTINGS. (Special Correspondence of Tam A.. JEFFERSON CITY, August 11.—Yes- terday's little rain has rendered time atmosphere comparatively clear and pleasant. Everybody feels a great relief after the long siege of smoky weather. The hay crop is now being harvest- ed, and those who have had water for irrigation will cut hay sufficient to feed their stock thim winter; conse- quently there is not likely to be such a demand for hay as find predicted. A .number of young and middle- aged people participated in a social hop Wednesday eve. Several new families have come to town. Jefferson is a town suitable as a place of residence, especially for its pleasantness and school advantageF Our pedagogue will be confined very closely to his study room now for time remainder of his vacation, making especial preparation and ar- rangements fur the coming term. He says he hopes to make this term the most profitable and pleasant for those who may attend. RADERSBURG RAYS. (Special Correepondence of Tar Ana.) RADERSBURG, August 10. — John Egan was struck on the head yester- day with a wild windlass n'bich knocked him senseless and cut a very severe wound just above the temple. Dr. Vawter stitched him up. Born, August '5th, to the wife of Joseph Sitton, a girl. Joe will re- cover. On August 7th, to the wife of Thomas Scaddon, a boy. We had a negro -minstrel shew in town the other night, the first for years. The boys said it Was \ratty\. The Radersburg base-ball club or- ganized last Sunday. Look out for them as they are a stunning crew. Frank Wells and wife are rusticat- ing in Helena this aveek. Heber Clayton and }loran Bottler, his effici- ent clerks, hold down the trade in his absence. We had the pleasure of being one of a fishing party this week to Cafion Springs. The party were Drs. Harris anit'Robinson, Col. J. D. Ripley, and your deponent. We caught lots of fish and on the last day by special in- vitation enjoyed a picnic dinner with Mr. and Mrs. E. Wilson and family— another fishing party. It waeat din- ner fit for the gods; ice-cream, fresh raspberries, baked. teal ducks, and other delicacies—ad infinitum. Such treats as this add five years to a man's life. The steam hoist and machinery on the Iron Clad are being moved to Hel- ena this week, the parties having the bond having thrown it up. The registration law with all its beauties (?) is now in operation. Walk up, gentlemen; put your name in the slot and see the vote flow. And while you are enjoying the conveni- ence of this registration law, see that you vote for men this fall who will either repeal or modify the law. Mr. E. Brown and wife gave a house-warming welcome dance at their new residence on Johnny's Gulch last night. 'l'he young people had an en- joyable time. Some of the finest looking galena ore I have seen for many a day can be examined at the Ripley hotel. It is from a very promising mine belong- ing to John I). Ripley, James Wier, and Harry Herrick, situated up Crow creek. They undoubtedly have a mine there that when developed will prove to be valuable property. I see you have begun a weekly edi- tion of \political pointere\; here are a few: Reuben Rader would make the race on the Democratic ticket for County Commissioner provided the nomination was tendered him. John Ritch hart lias been spoken of as a candidate for Probate Judge mai the same ticket. {The office is abolished under the Constitution.—Eu. AUK.] Heber Clayton says your pointer is \way off\ on him, as he don't cafe for fruit, thank you. It, seems to be the general opinion over here that if we have a new election all around, that several of our present county officers will be relegated to the shades of private life. A. L. Love is favorably mentioned for County Commissioner on the Re. - publican ticket. He is a live, push- ing farmer. There are several prominent men in each party in this valley who would take most any office they could get. Politics is a disease that nothing will cure except a dose of the ballot box.
