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.

To His Excellency Governor Ed- win I. Norris, Helena Montana. Dear sir: You commitsion, appointedl to e a district primary election bill for submission to the members of the state legislative assemb'y, beg leave to submit herewith the re- sult of our &liberal i met. Pursuant to your call, the commis- sion met in the office of the govern or at two o'clock p. in., June 5 lel I Those present comprised the enthe membership of the commission, as follows: Senators T. M. Everelt ofj Chouteau county. George MeCone of! Dawson county, and Tom Stout of j Fergus county, and representatives J Law of Gallatin county, Tolman of Carbon county, and hirschwing of Cascade county. The contn.iision was formally organized by the elect- ion of senator Tom Stout as chair- man and Representative Ben Law as secretary. At that and teveral sub; tquerit sessions of the commissi'm the end- ous questions involved in the subject of the direct primary nominating el- ections were given the most careful consideration, and free and ample discussions were engaged la by the various members of the commission. As a result of these discussions, the commission unanimously agreed that the law now in effect in the state of Oregon, taken as a whole, embodies more clearly the essential features of an effective, comprehensive direct primary nominating law than any other now in effect. For this reason the Oregon law was chosen, unani- mously, as the model after which the bill herewith submitted was pat- terned. It was found necessary to depart from some of the minor fea- tures of the Oregon law in order that the bill drafted by this commission should conform to the registration and other election laws of the state of Montana. The Oregon law pro- vides that the primary election re- turns shall be canvassed by a board comprising the county clerk and two justices of the peace. Your commis- sion has deemed it wise to have the returns in this state canvassed by the regular canvassing board—the board of county cm lllll issioners. The necessity for this change, we believe will be readily apparent to all. The Oregon law provides for the closed\ system: that is, the declaration of party preference and the registration of the elector together with his par- ty affiliation. Some members of the commission were strongly inclined to favor the \open - system as prac- ticed under the Wisconsin law, but after a frank and full discussion of of this feature, which was practically the only one at issue among the ANY FARMER OR GROWER MY WIN THIS VALUABLE CUP, yip irst _ James J.
