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.

Four tables were occu­ pied by the players and the intorest taken in the game was fully as great as at any previous meeting. Tho ladies prizes were won by Miss Jennie Ralston and Mrs.^ 0. G. Cooper, re­ spectively, the' iirst being a lady’s belt, the latter a pair of silk garters with gold buckles,both of which were greatly admired. Tbo gentloinon’s prizes were a guarded hand axe and a corkscrew and were won by J. E. Defines and H. F. Bailey, respective­ ly. At about 11 o’clock the party formed in liue aud marched to tho Choteau house whoro lunch was Served in*the spacious dining room of that popular hostlery under the supervision of tho gonial landlord, William Hpdgskiss, the host of the evening. Switch to Carter. Will Not Investigate. By a vote of 35 to 27, last Monday, tho house cf representatives refused to investigate the fmaneos of the Montana stock association. .Repre­ sentative White, of Jefferson, made a motion that a committee of three be appointed to investigate the iiuau«63 of the board of stock commissioners and of the Stockgrowers’ association.. Tho motion was based on the alleged fact that the association had a largo sum of money subject to its use, as tho result of the sale of stray cattle, aud the idea was that - as tho stato was short of money, the sum could bo converted into tho state treasury and used for the benefit of tho state institutions. TJie stock association, however, had pull enough to defeat the motion, as stated above. Just how long the people of the stalo will be compelled to put up with the high-handed, and illegal manner in which this so- called Mp.utana Stock association handles the stock business of this great commonwealth is a problem that is hard to solvo. , The republicans sprang a \surprise in the joint assombly last Tuesday by changing their votes from Lee Mantle to T. H. Carter. At the cau- * eus Mouday evening, of the republi­ can members, the situation was thoroughly diseussed and the con­ clusion arrived at was that Mantle could not hope to wiu any more votos, while there was a possibility that, on account of the bitter aui- : mosities that have been engendered in tho fusion forces, by ruuniug Car­ ter in at. this Into date tho republi­ cans might, snatch the short term souatorship. With this idea, Carter was voted for Tuesday moîning. The switch from Mantle to Carter has thrown a bombshell into the fusion ranks, and every effort will be made to got the factious together.

His election was brought about by a combination of republicans • aud democrats. Senator Mitchell’s name was not proposed until It o’clock, after the 20th ballot, when Senator Brownell placed him in nomination. Mitchell’s namo was received with the wildest cheers by tho vast throng which had assembled in the galleries aud tho lobby.

Mrs. Collins contemplates g i v h e r entertainment to the people of CT 10 - toau some time during March, piob- ably in court week. Mrs. Collins possesses the faculty of desciibing what she has seen, and.' accompanied by her illustrations, the entertain­ ment promises to be both interesting and instructive. There aro men in every town who want to fioocl the newspapers with communications abusing local affairs and people; they generally want to have their effusions published an- nouymouely,and have tho newspapers shoulder the responsibility.

There aro fool peoplo who imagine that newspapers should go ahead antagon­ izing all sorts of peoplo and interests through a desire to oarn a reputation of ‘’fearlessness.” It is a pity, that such fool people cannot be iuducod to embark all they havef in a news­ paper venture, just.to see how long their policy of indiscriminate abuse wouIdMieop them out of the sheriff's hands. !
