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.

Alter many vexation!;, but unavoidable delays, tho Choteau Publishing Company litis the pleasure to present Vol. L, No. I, of T hu C alumet , it literary aud news journal printed and published at the oflieo oi tho company in tho town of Choteau, Choteau county-the garden spot and wool aud stock growing centre of Montana Territory, T o develop ns rapidly as possible the natural resources of this fuvorod region— by correct representations t o capitalists seeking investments, farmers in search o f cheap land and profitable markets, fami­ lies desiring permanent homes and edu­ cational advantages, skilled labor in war* o f employment, and tourists in quest, o f health and recreation—La, in brief, the chief though not the sole mission o f this new publication. T u n C a l u m e t has other Aim« and am bitions as well,' not the least o f which is that i t may b eoom e the favorite fireside ' jourtud ' o f farmers, ranchmen and families, in which the o ld and the young, ti»e learned and the un- eduoatod w ill find t o ; amuse, instruct and elevate. Though the usual custom with n ewly established journals in sm all communi­ ties, Tun C alumet w ill n o t take a n eu­ tral o r non-partisan- stand in local and national p olitics. Its publishers having confidence in its ability to hew a straight and wide path t o success as a vigorous Democratic journal, it has n o hesitancy in announcing itself a firm believer in the Jeffersonian creed, a faithful though humble supporter o f the present n ational administration and a friend to all D em o­ crats, whether Irish, Missourian or M u g wnmp. T h e C a l u m e t begins business with unusual facilities for a country paper. It is provided with a H o e Cylinder press, a fine jo b offioo, a stereotype department and a large stock o f confidence in its ability to com pete successfully with older cotemporaries. A s its name inili- ett'et--, it is an advocate o f peaoo. I t wants n o scalps, and trusts that the p ipe and the Council w ill always prove m ore potent than the tomahawk and the war­ path. _____________ This Dem ocratic president o f ours is giving oertain members o f his party n deal o f anxiety. They are almost afraid b o is n o t a Dem ocrat at alL The Dem o­ cratic World has its doubts, and p u b ­ lishes an account o f tho reooption a Dem o­ crat met with when ho called at the W h ite House to expostulate against the removal o f Chief Justice Vincent, o f New M ex­ ico. “ V incent,” he said t o the president, “ i s a good Democrat, Don’t you tliiuk yon liave been luwty in suspending h im ?” H o explained that he meant that the presi­ dent should g ive Democrats a ch o u c e to lie hoard before swooping down upon them ns though they wore Republican rascals. And tliiswaa the reply he got from tho p resident: “ Y es, I knew h e was a Democrat. H o was indorsed tom e by cme o f tho loudost-m outliod Dem ocrats in Congress aud h ad m ore Dem ocrats asking to hnvo him nominated than anybody who lms been called t o my attention for some time.

The conviction of a man in Utah, al­ though he turned Gentile, for having two wives is expected to convince many Mor­ mons that the Edmunds law is meant for nil breakers of it, not simply for them­ selves. A Virginia paper, which has an idea that Cleveland is trying to form a new party, suggests that it be called a sur­ prise party.

It re­ quires years of unremitting effort and no inconsiderable amount of money to build up a paper that is of practical and real value to the community at large, and when a paper has attained that position, sight should not be lost of the fact that it must have money and an honest, healthy face to retain i t One o f the most disgusting; scandals that ever fall t o the lo t o f the newspaper t o ' record has just come t o light in the village o f Kingston, N. H . One o f ‘its wealthy citizens, Miy. Edward & San­ born, who has dime much t o further pub- lio intesta there, including not a few gifts to the local churches, died a fortnight or so ago in a Boston brothel. This place was not the chance sjiot where doath overtook him. It was owned b y himself, and had been nut up to the time o f her decease by his mistress, Julia A. Hilton, with whom ho had lived as his wife for 17 years, in the months he had passed at Boston, and whose acquaintance h o first made when she was a g irl o f 19. But not o n ly t h i s : H e besides about 30 years ago, upon inheriting $40,000 from his fatlior, despite most respectable, even aristocratic connections, deliberately em­ barked in the business o f establishing brothels, in which b y 1883 h e had accu­ mulated $250,000. H e thus led a dual life to be rejected as u tterly improbable had it been delienated in fiction. In Kingston he was the model citizen, the promoter o f all worthy enterprises; in Boston he was the miserly owner o f a number o f bagnios. The special interest o f this depraved history, beyond the curious phase o f disgusting possibilities in actual life which it presents, is in the com ing fight over h is wills. Tho C offe P o t Holder, tho principal organ o f public opinion at Coffe Pot Springs, Idaho, cleverly manages to make even its patent cuts locally interest­ ing, tim e ly: “ W e print to-day a portrait o f K ing G eorge I o f Greece from an en­ graving made by our sjieciul artist after a « -arte de finite sent us by his Greek- ness, who is a scion o f ono of the first fam ilies o f Europe. Old Coffe Potites cannot fail to detect in K ing Georgo’s pictured lineaments the dead spirit of B illy Divine, who ran tho New F ound Out saloon in this camp during 1883-84, and wns afterward called hence while endeav­ oring t o hold up the Tin Cup stage.” W e commend the Coffe Pot Holder's discre­ tion in reserving this sort o f thing for de­ puted citizens. _ \ ilH’* • most particular fellow alunit li.a d o i lies, writes si Washington corres­ pondent, ajioakiug of no loss a person xliau tho Father of His Country, ‘•and some of his brass buttons lio had cast with his initials, G.

A woman who went 400miles to W ash­ ington to shake the president’s hand was ao confused when she reached the inside o f the W hite House that she enthusiastically grasped the hand o f a plump doorkeeper, and'.went out satisfied. Unfortunately she was afterward informed o f her mistake, but it was too late. ' One thing is 'd e a r . about President Cleveland’s administration. I t ‘ is not common-place. I t is not a thing o f Routine, whose acts everybody can pre­ dict. It is independent, original, guided by-ita own purposes and n o t b y those o f any ontside force. T o tho philosophic observer it is tho o n ly interesting admin­ istration wo have had since Lincoln first becamo president. Mrs. Blaine, talking o f her husband to a Kansas city reporter, said: “H e is at Augusta, where h e w ill remain a ll winter. H is last volume w ill b e - o u t about the holidays. H e was sanguine o f Mr. Dav­ enport’s election, though I heard him give n o logical reason for it.” Queer way for a woman to put it. Mrs. Blaine also stated that sho d id not know wheth­ er her husband w ould be a candidate for the presidency in 1888 o r not. Tho story goes that at one o f President Grant’s dinners, when Gen. T. L . Cr itten den, the Mexican veteran, was a guest, the conversation chanced to turn upon that war. Mrs. Grant asked him i f he bad then known her husband, and Gen. Crit­ tenden replied: “ Mndamp, in fbp M o r io n war I waa a lieutenant-colonel command­ ing 1,600men. I was not around malting the acquaintance o f second lieutenants n ot o f my own comm and.” • _ There are few southerners, compara­ tively speaking, who have any feeling o f resentment against the North. When it is remembered that we Were tho losing side and sufferere in tho great contest, that we sacrificed m ilhrns o f dollars and thous­ ands o f precious lives, that after the war we felt the iron enter into our souls, and that for 20 years we have been stigmatized as “ rebels” and ‘ traitors,” wo think that the South deserve ,-dit fm its present attitude. As for . .w e rejoice that sectionalism is i. -, ,ng u thing o f the past, and that North and S outh each need the other.—M obile Register.

People who have passed b y one o f . the Bowery dime museums lately haveno- a jn g painting covering the front iff the b oildm g , representing a pretty girl with feet almost as large as the rest of her body. She is Mias Fannie MiUb, the daughter o f a w ell-to-do fanner o f San- dnsky, Ohio, and ahe e n jo y s the d istinc- turn‘of being the possessor o f the largest met in the world, Chicago included. Mias Mills being tired o f country life resolved to see something o f the citv and tries to do it during the time she la not seated upon the museum stage being gazed at by wondering crowds. Notwith­ standing the size o f her feet the young lady has received more offers o f marriage during the past few days Hum many Fifth avenue belles will be tendered during the coming season. The rumor that Mr. M ills would pre­ sent any man who married his daughter with $5,000 cash and a farm may have something to do with the rush for the lady’s hand, in fact some o f the would-be benedicts intimate broadly that the farm and the accompanying specie are whnt they are after.
