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 Ana would like to receive from all the Judges of Election in Jefferson county their opinion in brief of. the new system of voting. bUTFE HAD a half -million dollar fire last Sunday which destroyed -the new Bowes building intended for a hotel, the large dry -goods' store of Hennessey, the First National Bank, and a number of other buildings. The fire is supposed to have started from the explosion of a gasoline 'Lap in use in thé Bowes building. THE RAILWAY mail service in Mon- tana is in a decidedlv'unsatisfactory condition. If Postmaster General 1Vanamaker and hie assistants would devote More 'attention. to improving the service and less to the decapita- tion of Democratic postmasters in fourth-class offices, they would please the people better even if they did not satisfy the politicians so well. THE TOWNSEND Tranchant says that the indebtedness of Meagher county will soon be less then $35,000, and that after December • the warrants ‚of the county will be at -par. The new Board of Commissioners of Jefferson county will have before it the problem of bringing about a like condition of affairs in this county. Upon it suc - success will depend the prosperity of the county and the reputation of the members as efficient buteiness men and conscientioua'public officers. THE ELECTION. The election yesterday was another surprise party to a good mattipeople, though the result is still not definitely settled. THE ActE thought it had made arrangements to receive the returns promptly, but the failure of some of • the reporters and the delay count- ing the votes in the larger precincts prevented the paper . making a fair re- , , port at the usuel hour at whichdt is issued. Therefore the paper is not printed until Wednfsday afternoon, at which time-therre are sufficient returns to decide that nearly all the present county ()Meets are reölected. The Legislative ticket is still in doubt, though it is probable that Twohy and Breen are elected, while there. are some chances of Croak beating Pool. Cardwell is ahead 'for State Senator, but he is not yet certain of election. Jackson leads Whaley a few votes, but as Gallatin county is Democratic, he may be defeated. It is difficúlt to say how the Terri- tory has gone. The general impres- sionis, however, that Carter han been elected by 'a small majority, while the chances are in fit vor of the Democratic State ticket being successful. The Legisllature is in 'doubt add it will probably require the official vote to settle which Party will control that body ahd elect_ Un it titt Senators. Among the preciact returns re- ceived are the following; eoumnat.- For the Constitation 145, agalef.1 . 8; .

A correspondent of the Helena In- dèpendent writes as follows concerning some of the mines and prospects' of the típper Mein creek country: The Birbary is ave'ry fine prospect, With a seventy-foot shaft and twenty- five -fait cross -cut, which discloses à two -foot vein of galena and .pyrites sampling $52, with about ten tons of ore in the shaft -house. Negotiations are - mow pending for the sale or bond- ing of this property to heavy eastern capitalists. The adjóining claim on the east is the .Talequah, owned by Woodruff & Nave. Little work has been done on this property for some time, but it promises to be a good one when once opened. -Three veins ran through the claim, all of them large and well-defined and carrying galena from 410 grass roots. • Near at hand is the Elkhorn, discovered by the Waggoner brothers -this summer and developed by a forty-five foot incline shah on the hanging -wall, where some rich silver -lead ore was encountered. •A twelve -foot erose-cut feed W reach the foot -wall. Braymen brothers have resumed work na their gold lead, and intend to keep it up until spripg. - They have a big lead, eighteen inches of which runs several hundred dollars in- fine milling gold. Saul Haggerty owns the Redlion and several other fine prospects. He has been developing the Redlion (luring the past. summer. • Donnelly & Gagnon discovered a lode which they very appropriately named the Eclipse as it eclipsed any- thing found in the camp so far. The first assay returned $40 in gold and 10¡- ounces silver, since which time they have taken out and sacked ore that runs up into the hundreds and that at a depth of not more than twenty feet; they intend making a shipment before long. Jacob Kauf is doing assessment work on thé Piilsburg and Baby mines. Capt. Wm. Smith owns the Bear and La Plata lodes, re- cent discoveries. The Captain is a mau who believes that gold is \where you find it,\ and working on this theory he has succeeded in discover- ing that a great deal of the porphyry in this section carries . free • gold in paying quantities and is the true i source of the placer gold in Basin and Ten Mile and their tributaries. He has located a prophyry ledge 120 feet in width which he estimates will run from four to six dollars in gold, and gome of it much higher. If his esti- mates are correct he has a gold mine that is not surpassed by the Home - stake, of Deadwood, or the great Tread well mine of Douglas island, in Alaska. Brown, Winter, and Heber have laip, in a. supply of \grub\ and intend putting in the next six months in developing their leads 'in Basin canon. Nothing is being done in the Lady Leith and Lady Leith Wert mines at present, although active develop- ment may be Tesume - d' at any time. These properties are among the beat in the camp, showing splendid ore so far as developed. Too much water is the trouble. With pumping machin- ery to control the water thèse proper- ties . could be made to pay handsomely, as the ore is high graddand easily handled, - consisting of silver, lead, and gray copper P Among the new dis- eoverieS are the' White Horse, Maud S, J. L C., Proepeet, Aryan, Solar aiid Tele- graph. The Aryan is owned by Glover & Wilkinson, is free milling and , assays $55 in gold. They aie Very much elated over the discovery and believe they havea fortune in it. The Mugwump, one of the finest surface showings in the camp, is owned by Gordon, Glover& Wilkinson. It crops out on the surface for more than 1,300 feet and assays fairly in silver, gold, and lead. The owners-itave a whim on the- grouud and have just finished the frame -work of a 16x24 foot cabin. They intend to sink 100 feet during the winter and thoroughly Prospect the ledge. JEFFERSON JOTTINGS. [Special Correspondence of Tux AGE. I JEFFERSON CITY, Oct. 1. -The all - absorbing topic of conversation among the people of ohr quiet little town is -politica. We realize that an unusual event is about tolappen jn Montana's history, so people will go to the polls to vote as they deem best fur the com- ing State.. A look of melancholy appeared on the faces of all our young men and young women that stood on the depot platform this nu:Wiling as Miss Nellie Moulton took her departure for Hele- na, where she toes to attend the Con- vent. She ia a bright,'intelligent girl, loving and kind to all with whom she meets. Her parenta will miss her, her teacher will miss her, her class -mates will miss her; in fact, all that have sham -ad her loving kindness, will much lament her absence. But we are glad to know that she has gone to seek an education which will fit and prepare her for this life and that which is to come. That success may crown her efforts is the sincere wish of all. AN EXAMPLE OF PURE GRIT... Illelena Journal.] Sam Walling, who is now working at Elkhore, beats the record for pure unadulterated grit. Twenty miles this side of Wardner six years ago he located a gold lead, and (luring that time he run 632 feet of a Cross- cut and sunk a shaft fifty feet deep and 'made an uprise 300 feet from the mouth of the tunnel for air. One hundred and twenty feet of this work he has performed entirely alone and has not obtained a dollar from any one that he did not earn. He has worked for wages about two months out of each year and with the result of that much labor has sustained him- self while he worked on the shaft the other ten mouths. A state that pos- sesses the bone, sinew, and grit that will perform such a task under such circumstances must make some rapid strides in the near future. There are whole lots of such men in Montana and they are worth their weight in gold to any community in the world. Mr. Walling has fifty feet further_to run to cut his lead and if he does not strike it rich he will have some reasön to think that this is a tough world. WILL BEBUILD. BUTTE, Sept. 30. -The losses by yesterday's fire as given in these dis- patches last night were about correct r with the exception of placing the loss Sustained, eincipally by water, by the Bonner Mercantile Company at $50,000. Mr Bonner, head of the coMpatty, is now here, and after look- ing over the damaged stock said the loss was not leas than $75,000, and it might reach $100,000. The adjusters of the several insurance companies are en route here to adjust the losses. The Hennessy',Mercantile Company will rebuijd on the old sito at once, itad *hope to resume business in six weeks; and artless an unusually - early winter sets in to prevent construction the burnt district will be rebuilt with tine structures and be ready for occu- pancy by the 1st of December.
