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.

N o v That the proposed comitr of Sweet- grass would In a few years, if formed, be one of the grandest of the imiuy granil comities In Montana there can ho no question. Embracing within its boandarlcs a wealth of mineral, stock and agricultural lands it needs only the proper form of self govern­ ment to develop Its resources and to make it more than self sustaining. For many years the people living within its territory have been com­ pelled to go many miles to exercise their legal rights. The expenses of trips to Livingston, White Sulphur Springs and to Billings have been great; and as a tax, have proven to be burdensome. Their business could he transacted at Big Timber more satisfactorily and a t less expense than r.t any other point and they know it. The request to the legislature to pass this bill Is therefore reasonable and should be granted. The assessable wealth of the pro­ posed county at the present time is * 2.500 «300. when the county comes into existence, January I. If.t>5, it will easily amount to more than 93,500.000. More than enough ut the present time to maintain a county u ta low rate of taxation when conservatively managed. The expenses of niauagi ng Swoetgrass county will be compar* itaveiy lour, and criminal cases will be extremely rare. Since the for* mat ion of Park county there Itn*; never iiecti a murder committed in the territory that is proposed to be taken Ironi her. The same may l;e said of the country to be embraced lying in Meagher county. Peaceful, prosper­ ous and law abiding, the cit .z ' 0.7 w li. ir Swoetgrass county is forme«!, iak- a prideand a personal interest :i> 1 .(im­ aging, dcvclopiiigar.d maintaining t in­ law and order of their county. Such are the people, clear headed and ener­ getic and it is. with singular and rare unanimity of purpose that ti c. hare entered this light to win. W itli an honest upright way. concealing nothing and enroaching upon no «.m- they ask only f««r what is theiis and insist that Just deserts be giantcd. In all or neatly all of the now ««¡un­ ties that have heretofore been created in Montana there are men who have strongiy objected to the passage of such act«, even many of those living within the new count ics. Even when the county of Park was create«! there were many objectors who lived in Livingston and in almost every por- t ion of t he count y. Their object ions, however, went for naught and the county was formed. The growth and development- of the county since that time shows how groundless were their fears and showed that when a county reached a certain size it bccaine cum­ bersome and that two smaller coun­ ties could I n * managed »sitter at ),>s expense that cue unwieldy county covering almost nil creation. Rut. for a difference, there is not one person living within the limits of the proposed county of Sweetgrnss lint w-lut- is heartily in fav«>r of di­ vision: not «me but wh«>m, if his vote could create the new county, would vote in favor of it. If there lie such a «me we have yet, to hear him ami hear Ids reas«ms; and we have heard either directly or indirectly from »1- most every taxpayer in the proposed county. It has been stated by tlic chronic j Livingston objectors that ‘'the move | will help UigTimber real estate.” It ' will. It will also help all real estate situated not alone in Lie Timber l.-ut in every p«>rtion «if the now cciuniy. 1 county and i.nt assisting to form the tail end of three or four larg e coiiii - ti«-s very size make them ex­ tremely «‘xponsive ard a burden for I lie taxpayers to carry. As their business interests lie that way the people of Hod Lodge will lie found to favor being annexed to Y e l­ lowstone count,\.

They show on their face the grossest niisnianagcnicnt and show further that the county is too large to properly manage, it. is a well known fact that-a proper assessment will show the present taxai,Jr wealth of Fark county to be inure than $ 0 ,- 000,000. Of this amount the new county Is to take about 91,250,000. Third. In this “ fact'' a remarkable shortness of memory is shown when such settlements as Clyde l*ark, Myersburg, Fridley, Howie, Emi­ grant, McLeod and several more are ouimittcd, ail rich in stock and agri­ culture. Fourth. The future prosperity or the country (icpinds not upon a por­ tion of it remaining in Turk county bulup«in its being separate ami dis­ tinct. The new county takes from Fark less than one-fourth of the tax­ able wealth. Park county will lie a very rich co.inty after the new county is made, having within its borders many thousands of acres «if agricul­ tural, coal ami mhurnl lands, as any one conversant with tin> fads can state. Fifth. Till» so cal’e.l fact isa false­ hood, pun* and simple. The people of i Cooke ami the New World Mining district arc not sep:u:.ted from nig Tlmljer by an impassible range of mountains and we make the assor- thin that the paopie Jiving then; will soon make liig Timber their outlet, via the Boulder route, whether the Sweet grass county bill passes or not. Sixth and Seven Hi are \facts\ to silly for answer ami hear liioii- ab- Mirdity upon their face. A CONTKAPKTU.N. \Fact” fourth says: \It takes from its a population of about :;, odo people, and about onc-lialf of tlie tuxah’c property of the County. Tim agri­ cultural regions jnelmh-d in it are among the most fertile Stillwater Bulletin: The citizens oi ldg Timber are out with petitions praying for the division of Park coun­ ty. Tlic proposed new county of boulder embraces all that portion of Park east of a line running north and south near Springdale.-the,valuation of «vlihdi will more than equal that, of tlie old eounty. This move lias been brought about by the constant reins- al of Livingston to rec«»gnize the rights of eastern Park county, all of which goes to prove that impart iuiil.v is the proper course to pursue in coun­ ty affairs. » »' * Bed Lodge i’ickut: The news of this niovenieni, the details of which are given in our news columns, comes Just at tlie hour of g«dng to press and we have but little time or space for •'liniment, but that it will meet with a determined opposition from tlic cit­ izens of lied Lodge and vicinity, and especially of tlie residents of tlic line agricultural section on our west, we have every reason to believe. All of ti.nt country south of IheYcliovv- sn-i.c liver to the Wytmirg lino, ly­ ing west of the divide between I’ryor creek and Clark’s fork to the Stillwa­ ter and its tributaries, is bound to­ gether by commercial interests which county lines cannot sever without in­ convenience to its inhabitants. It is proposed to place more than half of tills territory in Swoetgrass «-oitiity amlcoupel the residents lluroof lo transact their eounty business at Hig! Timber, a town ns remote from them as far as business interests are con­ cerned. as Bozeman or Helena. The inhabitant« of this territory it is pro­ posed to segregate from Park and Yolh.wstofte counties are, by their go« igra pica i position, compelled lo t rniisact their commercial business at cit her lied L' ilge oil in YcllowsUine u:uuty. and to compel them to trans­ act their business in | i| g Timber, to reach which point they must cross a high mountain range or trawl »«• tlie proposediT.imty seat by way of Still­ water. \v«uild be a bunion which we <li. cot, think tlie legislature will im­ pose when the full facts are laid be­ fore that body. ,« « a Helena Independent: Yesterday a new aspirant vvn< entered.

In addition to the lengthy petition sent to Helena M« the whole valley has been canvassed, and «mlsidc Columbia Falls there is not the slightest oppo­ sition to tlie bill, and the taxpayers from all parts of tlic proposed new county are urging the citizens of Ka- lisp 'll to do cveiylhing puss;Ido to sc- can* its passage. Tlic only dissatis­ fied persons arc those who huv.: fail­ ed lo secure an olllcc.
