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.

T he deputy game wardens had a meeting with their chief, at Helena this week. The first district was unrepresented and thus those opr posed to Boucher’s appointment are given another opportunity to get in the large sized kick. T he recent decision of the supreme court in the Porto Rico cases upholds the administration’s policies in all important particulars. The conten tion of the anti-expansionists that congress could not leyy customs duties against the products of our newly acquired possessions is left without a support. Thus is auother of Wind Jammer Bryan’s pet theories disposed of. Wrrn a smile that is childlike and bland,China expresses perfect willing ness to talk about that indemnity, for China understands quite as well as herj Christian and civilized con querors that talk is cheap. About the only real way to solve the dif ficulty of getting tho indemnity is for the powers to collect it. And that they will not do while China cau suggest plans for doing so. / / “ Tobe” i.

James-Sulgrove is attorney, for plain-, tiff . • . ;.:;j-Vv:U J. V'V. T.heir Fifteenth Anniversary. T he movement on the part of some friends to secure a pardon for Judge DuBose is all well onougb, but Judge DuBoso threw up a good position in Montana to go to Cape Nome aud while there evidently fell into bad company. He is an able lawyer - aud while on the district court bench in this state was a fearless and uncom promising judge. If, while at Cape Nome, he has done something for which he should be punished, he should be compelled to take his med icine and the appeal of his friends for mercy should fall on deaf ears. T he appointment of Mr. J. H. Boucher as deputy game warden for the district of Flathead and Teton counties, does not seem to meet with approval in any quarter. In Flat- head county tho democrats and others are putting up a large-sized kick be cause a Teton county man got away with the ’simmon, aud in this county tho leading democratic politicians are a trifle warm under the collar be- v cause they were entirely overlooked and an “ unknown” in democratic politics was chosen for this place. As this is purely a democratic-popu listic row, of course the republicans will have little or uolhiug to say concerning it. It is amusing how ever, to hear the howls of tlae disap pointed democratic office seekers-and the good Lord knows there are plenty o f t hen/in, this district. Mr. and Mrs. James L. Collins, of Baymond, celebrated the fifteenth anniversary pf their marriage at their home last Saturday.,, A, large number of their friends were bidden to a six o’clock dinner and nearly all responded. The bride was as resplendent and happy as when she first wore ‘ the orange blossoms. The decorative scheme .in the diu- ing room was very tastefully wrought in pink and green, the favorite colors of the hostess. • * . A very excellent dinner was greatly enjoyed by the guests. At 9 o’clock canvas was laid aud dancing became continuous till the clock.warned thé revelleis that Sunday had eomo. Nearly every resident o f the neigh borhood was present and” very many from Choteau, Belleyiew, Bynum and Dupuyer. The wedding presents were very Mrs'.

A hearing ,,in this, case'will be held on Juue 10th.\ rV’ Mrs. John Zimmerman received' , a telegram this morning that her little son/Frindly, had beeu seriously in jured; the’ day before, by,,a horse dal- lin'g' omilhim, at tbe ranch of the little boy’s uncle, Wm. , Zi^nmerman, who lives in the Dry Forks. ; She left immediately for that place to nurse the\unfortunate lad.

Since thatr date the members have paid tho head camp $1716.50 for the benefit fund, $352.25 for the general fund and $114.25 for the equalization fund, making, a total of > $2183.00. They have- received\ from the head camp $3000 on account of the death of Dr. J. E.:Wamsley. This shows a clear gain to, tiie lodgejof $817. The $114.25 paid( into the equalization fund is really'not a loss, being in a fund to keep tho assessment of members dow;n in the future. ’ 'SV r’Ir.í/.Q- '‘Aaóní.'fmatif, rît I.K a ' P indst VVVinflH..';Líniiors h' Corner Main and Conrad Streets, Choteau; Montana.; • - .- V ..-- V , : v . - >- ' ' i f r r ’ >4' A . : . ‘-F,. , - */ Election of* O fficers;/ .- * - - ‘ .

The Dr. ordered him to be taken to Choteau to the' poor;‘farm:, McNally being a pauper. ,, , , The above'appeared in the • Shelby items in tlie, Acantha last' week. The correspondent^ should be- more care ful.in sending in the “news,” as this does a great irijustice toMr. McNally. In the first place he isv not -suffering with,the d.,t.’s— and it is;:not true, as the Havre Eagle said that he- was brought.to.photeau to b e ' examined as to his sanity. He is just recover ing from a\ severe illness , and was taken to; the county hospital,1 (poor farm if you wish to call it such,) that he might receive proper medical at tention and.nursing—not because .he is a pauper—for such is not the case, but because it is the only place, in the .county of a public nature where. per sons who are sick can., be cared for. Mr. McNally is a well-known old- 9 “ timer!of northern Montana, particu larly so at Havre where he was mayor a term, and his friends there will be pleased to” learn that he is fast re covering his health arid will be' able to be out and around again in a short time. - ' v :• , •-/<, v '' \ Above tK¿ \ < i ’’- h -, V 1 v-^. » f : .i t, .
