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.

a only argument so far presented in favor of the adoption, and as it most frequently comes from the lips of men Who may expect high honors under a new order of government, there may be a tincture of selfishness about the argument.. Still it is worthy of time consideration of all citizente and is therefore submitted. - - Tire AGE ¡his week publishes in full the mining bill which Senator Stewart, of Nevada, proposes tu introdttce in the United States Senate at the next session of Congress.

Liar SÁTVILDAY the Coffltitutional Convention of Montana completed its labors and adjourned. Whether or nee the Constitution is worthy of , adoption is a question which the peo- ee was generally have to decide on ' trust. Of course it is to be printed and circulated. but the experience of Montana in such matters is such as to warrant the aesertion that the Consti- tution will not be circulated in season to a1 -low a fair consideration and die- cussion of its merits. As the matter stands at present. there is considerable opposition to its adoption. There are unquestionably several unjust propo- sitions embraced in the proposed Con- anitution--propetitioes which would cause its rejection were the question one betweee this and a Constitution already in force.
