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 executive committee appoint ed at the Chicago silver convention, mctinWushlhgton on Saturday and Issued an ‘‘appeal to tlie p.splu” siffiied.tiy A. J. Werner, vhairmin. and George F. Washburn, secretary. The appeal says in part: “ The unconditional repeal of the present silver law will at once stop all increase in currency aud place the country on a single gold standard ba il» and at one stroke change all debts to gold debts, with the certainty that gold will thereafter contiuue to in­ crease in value at an accelerated rate.” The address then comments on the present financial disturbance and asks: “ Can this condition be improved by shutting off the money supoly and still further restricting the volume of currency? It is a time when more money and not less is needed. It is futile to suppose that crcdi-, already over expanded, can be made, to take the place of monpy. There is work, but no money to pay for it. The appeal then calls upon .people everywhere to turn aside, fr un party differences ai d to ass -mtjle “ as our fathers did of old*’ and pass resolu­ tions calling upon their senators and representatives in congress to resist the rcpcnl of the present silver law unless coiipl.d with a provision re­ storing the free coinage of gold and silver as it existed under the law prior to the piissaire or the “ fraudu­ lent act of lf\.V* Theapp’ai recom­ mends the reading of tile Chicago silver convention platform at all as­ semblages, the writing of letters to senators and representatives, and in fact making a vigorous campaign against repeal. The address con­ cludes: “ i t is as important now Unit we free, oursclv s from tin: financial domination of Europ.: as it was for our fatiiers to free themselves from the political domination of foreign powers. Let this movement be the spontaneous action of a free p -iplc, conscious that tlic government is yet in their hands and conscious, too, of their lights, and with the will to maititaiu them. EvEttYWiiEitE arc people who aie getting it in the neck. There was n* t money enough to move Mon­ tana's win 1 cl p, The same can be said of tfie beef and mutton cn p. It is, however, the same everywhere and of other states llrads trouts says 'O w in 'to Hie inability of banking institutions in the smith to advance money to move the cotton crop a cri­ sis in the cot ton legion is imminent. It would require #30,000.000 to move th : est i ilia ted cn p or 0,000,000 bales. A large part of the crop is raised by negro tenant farmers, who rely on the owners to advance the money for picking, ginning, pressing and bal­ ing. This they arc now unable to do. In view of this emergency the secre­ tary of the treasury has just made an arrang'-ment by which the depndt of currency with the sub-treasury at New York, the government will tele­ graph tlie sub-treasury the means to pay a I ko sum in silver doliais, which Will go far to r. l.cve tlie stringency.*' iHotrimnutmes. t. The wool receipts and shipments from big Timber this year will reach about 2.000.000 pounds. This we be­ lieve makes big Timber stand second in the state in the amount of wool shipped. Great Falls holding the lead by about a million pounds.—Great Falls Leader. It is all very well for the Leader to say that the shipments from Great Falls beat those of big Timber but as yet we have seen no figures to prove the assertion. To come at the mat­ ter fairly they should produce relia­ ble figures and not I at re statements. The shipments front liig Timber amounted to 2,784,671 pounds and we doubt if there is a town or city in the state that can come up to it. , T jie cause of silver coinage has won over a very influential organ at the very place where gold-bugs most do congregate. The New York Re­ corder, a republican paper of high stauding has come out In favor of free coinage. I n less than six weeks Rig Timber will be booming along as good as ev­ er and will wear an even greater air of prospoiit) than it wore at the be­ ginning of the summer. Mark the prediction. A iievekned gentleman who has charge of the advertising department of a well Known weekly Is authority for the statement that advertising is prophetically referred to no less than twice in the bible. Thosejjrho wish to substantiate this remarkable an­ nouncement can do so by referring to the- following passages: “ Come, therefore, and I will advertise thee ” Numbers, xxiv. 14. “ And I thought to advertise thee, saying, buy it.\— Ruth, iv, 4. I p in these August days you Dud your newspaper filled with frec-coin- age talk, do not weary of it. says the Standard. That topic fills the pub­ lic mind at this time. The whnlfe country is talking about silver; mil­ lions of men and wunen are watch­ ing with anxiety the results which two weeks of discussion in congress will bring forth. Silver is in the air, is in the mind of every man, it is in the chance of prosperity or adversity for the length and breadth of the Rocky Mountain region. No wonder • lie newspapers find little else to talk about. P uesident O akes has issued a cir­ cular to the officers and employes of the Northern Pacific railroad on the death of General Manager Mellon, lie refers to the deceased in the fol­ lowing terms: “ A man of strong physique, a tireless worker, he was devoted to the interests of the com pany, which he served with conspicu ous faithfulness and ability, wl i e 1 y mingled firmness and consideration lie won the regard of ull employes, lie had mastered the business Ilis dcuih removes a valuable and usefu officer, whose services to this com pany will long be held in grateful re menioerancc.\ I t is reported that there was a very significant occurance in the senate j finance committee Thuisday. A mo- j tion was made authorizing the chair­ man to introduce a hill to amend the law* governing the Issue of national bank note« to the par value of the bonds deposited as security therefor, This was agreed to after discussion by a majority of two to one. Then it was pr« posed to authorize the chair­ man to report a bill to repeal the ail ver purchase clause of the Sherman l.iw. whereupi n Vest is said to have made a speech denouncing the tmpo sition and notifying its friends that no bill urhich ignored silver could pass tlie senate. Under the influence of tlie remarks of Vest, the commit­ tee unanimously reconsidered the ac­ tion on the currency question and ad­ journed. W yoming ' s Governoi Osborne has decided not to appoint anyone to the senatorship made vacant by the res­ ignation of A. C. b.fkwitli until the aenateshull have decided the ques­ tion whether or not a senator ap­ pointed after the failure of u state legislature to elect is entitled to a scat. If the dccis.ou is favorable to the seat lug of the appointees, it is definitely settled that the governor will immediately name Revenue Col­ lector A. L. New of tlie district of Colorado and Wyoming to till the va­ cancy. Credentials will be immedi­ ately forwarded to New, who is in Washington. Should the decision be adverse to the seating of theappoint- cd'senators, it is expected that the governor will at once convono a spec- lal fcMsloij b ftbc legislature to olect A mong other notable accessions of wealth from England recently is #160,000 worth of \horseflesh In one lump. The famous Ormond came over in tlie Massachusetts the other day. and is now the property of an American, having been purchased by W. O’li. Macdonoiigli of California, who will ship him to his Ntock ranch. Ormond was foaled in n>83.' and his sire was the illustrious ben P'Ur. Ills birthplace was the duke of West­ minster's farm at Eaton. His racing career began when he was a 2-ycar- old, and he has won 10 races, includ­ ing the Derby. without a single de­ feat. * »• •-*» « ■ a a a a « S » S » « a S M S % a m m * S * H * S S S n a s s » | j 9 . t v c . . . . . . . v\- 1.7 Grand Midsummer Clearance sale! A kailkoad running through Kansas has been gett ing a great deal of advertising by employing a “ rain maker\ and setting him at work in sections o f the state needing a fall of the pluvial fluid. The advertising manager chuckled full merrily at the success o f Ids scheme until a couple of farmers went into court and said they would like to have currant coin of the republic to the value of crops ruined by heavy rainfalls alleged to have been brought about by the in­ cantations of tlie company's “ rain­ maker.\ I f the company pleads that its “ rain-maker\ cannot make rain, but is only fooling the dear people, it will make itself the laughing stock of the country. I f it stands pat, it will have to pay for those crops and possibly some others. The dilemma is an amusing one to the unfeeling public, but* Mfjpyji bg#So tbo com* W .

Yet when a mercantile house becomes pressed, who is there to help it out, it must either siuk or swin unaided, and yet, the merchant is of as much importance and ot times of more, in his town or city thau is the bauker. ______________ I'KKSS COMMENTS. Our citizens should Impress upon our senators aud representatives at Washington the iffivisabilitv and necessity of removing from the ceded (Hirtion of the reservation all Indi­ ans, who have been allotted land there. The Indians don’t want to settle there, at d have only done so to favor some squaw men, some of whom control range enough to make a good sized eouuty. Their presence there will inevitably lead f.o more trouble with white settlers and some­ body will surely get hurt. The whole history of mixing ludians and whites shows that the former ac­ quire the vices of the whites, and the latter deteriorate. It is good for neither t lass. No injustice need be dune the Indians, because provision has been made in the act of cougress feeding the lauds bv which these In­ dians can get a fresh allotment on the retained reservation, with an al­ lowance for their Improvements even after they had sold out their relin­ quishment to a white scttler. in tlie meantime, however, no regulations have been made by the department as to how these relinquishments are to be made. Th»se matters require attention, and we are sure that Jien- ator JVwer would devise a remedy were the request to come before him from our citizens. The most feasible plan would be for the dt partiueut to put a value on each allotment and improvements (ir any) and let it be sold to some citizen at tiiat figure for the benefit of the Indian allotce. There Will Lc no trouble in ii.ducing the Indians to take new allotments, if the squaw men who are interested in keeping I hem there are out allow­ ed to interfere, and the agent does liis duty, as there is no doul.t lie will. Then* lias been one killing already, and though matters are quiet now there will undoutcdly be more trouble when more set tleis move in.—billings Times # * # Anaconda Standard: The fact that the Loudon press is hearty in its ap­ proval of President Cleveland’s nns sage will not add to the popularity of the document among Americans who see in the proposed overthrow of sil­ ver a surrender to the English purse Of course the English press like tlie message; why wouldn't it? Several newspapers owned and controlled by English money, in large tl.ics of this country, are as pli-asi d us the London press. Euglunucun certainly nffoid Ihtoiigh her newspapers to say thank you when the govern men t of this country increases the value of the English holdings against the Amer­ ican people; * # A boulder Age: 1 he treasury depart­ ment reluscu to i« mply during the month of July with the hheiman law in regard to the purchase of silver, only a little over half the required amount being bought. The only ex­ cuse is that silver was not < ffered at the London price. Congress can now adjourn immediately. It was* called in extra session simply to rep.*ai the j Micrnian act. and tlie seer* tar.v of the treasury lias taken that burden t.ff its hands. A * * Meagher County News: The man who advocates the interests of the people against mom pol.s's and mon­ ey sharks is culled an anarchist I y the Pioneer Press. If anarchy' must prevail that tlie producer may have justice, then give us anarchy. A uiati is a crank who advocates equal rights to all or the suppression of any evil; hut cranks mu>t tie born to suit the condition of a growing nation. * # # li< zeman Chronicle: These are good times for a man with a little money; one who scalps city and coun­ ty warrants at a shameful rate of in­ terest. but the time will come when he will be ashamed of himself. The man who tukes advantage of other people's misfortunes docs more in­ jury to his own conscience than lie • an possibly inflict u | mui others. * # ♦ Dllon Tribune: Cleveland is mak­ ing republicans mighty fast in Mon­ tana.
