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.

It is reported that a strong en- devor is to be made to secure for Montana the location of the national sanitarium. James A. Murry, of Butte will go to Washington D. C., to start the ball rolling in favor of locating the sanitarium at Hunter’s Hot Springs near Livingstone. The Northern Pacific railroad is also in terested in the location of the sani tarium at that place and will second Mr. Murray’s effort. The matter is in the hands of the board of trustees of national homes for old soldiers and Mr. Murry will invite the members of the board out. to see the sanitarium. General Alger, secretary c f war, is a member of the board. There has been talk for some time of locating the sanitarium in a Western state and the people of Hot Springs, S. D. are pulling.hard to get the institution there. Hot''Springs, Ark., is after it of- course; 'and Cali fornia and Colorado are pulling stroug. Saturday in Justice Beaup e’s court suit'was brought by P. H. Summers against Geo. Fairbairn and Eliza Fairbairn to recover moner alleged to be due said defendant. It seems that Mr. Summers sold to Geo. Fair- bairn about Sept. 10, 1897, a promi- sory note given by John Zimmerman for the sura of $164, and had paid on the note the su.m af $110, leaving a balance of $54 due plaintiff and unpaid. ‘ Mr. Fairbairn claimed he had an account of $55 against Summers for odd jobs that ho had done during the summer, which cancelled the in debtedness, besides other miscellan eous bills. They were all disallowed with the exception of one small counter bill. > The court’s decision was that Summers recover from Fair bairn the sum of $65.45 and costs in the sum of $11. James Sulgrove ap peared for plaintiff aud J. G. Bair for defendant. ' A reduction iu the wages of about 125.000 operatives employed.in ueuri v 150 colton mills in New England! which manufacturers decided upon as a temporary remedy for depression in the cotton goods' industry of the North, weut into effoc. in the major ity of the mills last Mouday. 1 Iu several mill centers, namely New Bedford, and Bi- deford, Saco and Lewiston, Maine, the dissatisfaction among mill hands is intense, and strikes are on... TKe 18 mills of the rormet; city, which gives employment to about 9,030 hands, have been shut down because the operatives have refused to accept the reduction and the contest thus inaugurated prom ises to be one of the most stubborn in the history of the texture iudustry. The situation in New Bedford is very gloomy. Business there had not re covered from the depression which followed the failure of six mill corpora atious last spring.

He is ’\now living in Juneau, and writes thajithereport ed richness of the Klondike is largely imaginary, sayfc the Great Falls Leader. “ The country is not one-hundredth part as good'as the people have been led to believe,” hr writes. The old- timers say you can learn more here (Juneau) in one hour about the Klondike than you can in Dawson City. . . . The papers report Berry Bros, as taking out $135.000 down the coast last spring. They actual ly had $33,000 it. dust and that was not all their own. They worked 20 men all' last season end came put $1 l v- 000 in debt. . . . ‘Swift Water Biil’ had $2,500 as a result of selling 15-16 of a claim when he left Dawson— and the papers reported him a mil lionaire. . . . The last outfit of 28 men from the Klondike brought out $20, 000 in dust—they were reported all over the couutry as having $1,- 000,000. . . . I own an interest in No. 68 on Bonanza creek, but it is no good. . . .

Hanna escaped from the county jail and up to date has not been found. While Under Sheriff Dean was attend ing to his duties at the stoue man sion, Hanna asked permission to get a pail of water at the pump in the jail yard. Dean, having cousidei- able confidence in the man, gave him the desired permission, and as soou as he was out made a break for^ liberty, jumping the fence that en closes the building, and taking the road toward Sua River was off. The night was dark and before Dean could notify other officers aud make necessary arrangements for pursuit the outlaw had hied himself and was nowhere to be found. Both Dean and Deputy Sheriff Armstrong scour ed the country that night and several days following with no success. He is reported as having- been seen at Steele aud taking the track for Great Falls but the officers at that place have not yet made any arrests. Hanna was arrested some months ago charged with burglarizing a sheep catnp at Collins. He was to have been given a trial at this term of district court. The officers are still confident that he cannot make his escape good, as the entire state has been warned and if he turns up in any town within the state his arrest is certain.
