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.

New Haven, Cohn., Juno 23.—Adel­ bert Hay, son of Secretary Hay, was found dead at 2:30 this morning in front of the New Haven house. He was,found by a policeman aud an ambulance surgeon’s examination showed his skull to have beou frac­ tured. He is supposed to have fallen or jumped from a window. He was a graduate of (bo class of ’98, Yale, and has been here two days to attend tho commencement exer­ cises. Young Hay’s principal claim to public notice was from the fact- that he was appointed to the consulship at Pretoria during the “Euglish-Boor war and’representod tho United States during the active phases of that struggle: ' Consul Murcum becamo involved in a struggle with the English govern­ ment owing to the-Boer sympathies and charged that the English violated the sancity of the American consul­ ate's mail at Cape Town. The stato department refused to coutenauce tho charges and Marcum started home to substantiate them. When he arrived at Washington the state department did not support his position and Mar­ cum left the consular service. Adelbert Hay then came into pub­ lic notice for the iirst. time by being appointed to the consulship at the seat of the Beer government, the English oven prior to the war main­ taining control of the foreign affairs of the .TraDsvaal and allowing .no foreign power to maintain a greater representation.than consul at (he seat of tho Boer government.

Tiio party will bo in tho field for sovorul days aud will conduct what will be the first scientific iuvestigu- ticu of its kind instituted in this stato. The weod has long boeu a menace to stockmen aud an effort is to bo made to discover its active principle that in the future precautionary measures may bo proscribed that will enable the stockmou in a measure to over­ come its effects and eradicate it from thoTau^es. .' The stute uud federal authorities are co operating iu their efforts to louru more of tho character of loco, aud Dr. Knowles stated today that ho expected that it would not bo a groat while until ho would bo ablo to auuounco uu analysis of tho plant. Einil Starz, who is accredited with being one of tho most thorough and resourceful chemists iu the north­ west lias beon engaged iu a like ca­ pacity in connection with tho investi­ gation of other poisonous plants. The weod grows about oight inches iu height and blossoms in Juno.\ A b yet it is not luipwu whether the weod is dangerous boforo or aftdr it blos­ soms, but (he suppositiou is Ihut it is poisonous at all times. It is to deter­ mine these facts that an investiga­ tion -is now being made.—Helena Herald. 'D a tes o f C o u n ly lnstltutes.

Comparison of values for cattle to- J » f day with one your ago show a much wider rungo than at that lime, saj’s tho Chicugo Drovors’ Journal. Tho best beef grades are soiling closo to 50 cents higher than at (hut lime, whilo tho lowor grades nro closo to 25 cents lower. Common stockors aud foedors are selling close to 75 cents lower tliun ono yoar ago, whilo tho best grades of young cuttle are sell­ ing ut almost tho sumo level as at this tiino last yoar® Fat cows uml hoifors are a big 25 cents higher (linn one year ago,and tho common gruiles 25 cents or more cheaper,while culvos and bulls are selliug right at tlie level values ut this lime lust your. Heavy hogs today are about SI, and tho light close to $M 0 higher than one year ago,whilo sheep are 75 conts to SI and spring luinbs close to S2 lower thuu at this time last yoar. This condition of trudo in cuttlo uud hogs should be very satisfactory to farmors aud feeders, and the prices for sheep and lambs aro not so dis- couragiugly low except us compared with thoiuflntod prices that wero paid tho first half of last yoar. B rought a G o o d P r ice. Tho recent sale of tho Baldwin Seeop and Land company’s wool clip, of Hay Creek, Ore., including that of 1900 and 1901, aggregating nearly 1,000,000 pounds, is spoken of by our Oregon exchanges as the loading event in wool circles iu their state. Tho wool was put up at auction und sold to tho highest bidder, bringing 121 conts per pound. Nearly all tbo groat wool firms o f the United States wore rep­ resented on tho occasion, names of many of the representatives present boing familiar to the wool-growers of this section. W r e c k on G r e a t N o rthern, Glasgow, Mont., Juno 24.—The westbound passenger train collided with a box car on tbo main lino of tho Great Northorn at White Earth, N.

The body of the dead man was sent to Minot and tho injured one taken there for medical atten­ tion. Nothing on the body served to identify the man who was killed. - GO AND MINE SAPPHIRES. IS UNITED STATES TERRITORY.\ M istake .Made. In .S u r v e y o f Line B e tw e e n U. S. and Canada.\: -; George E . Whicher, of Poflland, a surveyor in the employ of the United Stales government, wjis in-the city yesterday, says the .Great Falls T r i - ' buuo, and left over Ihe'Grb'ut Falls & Canada to jdiu at Coults a surveying crew that will spend several “months ‘ iu determining the lino of the .inter-, national boundary along nearly the ontiro northern boundary of the state. The suryey that'was made Several years ago was incomplete; and while monuments to designate the bound­ ary wore placed, mauy qf them were not correctly located aud some : aro kuown to bo too far south. • If tho survey shows what it is ex­ pected to reveal, it is apt to load to an international controversy, as it is believed that a considerable area of vuluablo territory that is now, and for years lias boon, supposed to be­ long to Canada will be found to be a porliou of Montana, Tho discrepancies between the old survey aud tho position of several monuments along the international boundary wiye called to the attention of tho government bj’ railroad sur­ veyors who worked iu Hint vicinity last soasou, and (lie variance is so much in instances tbatit is considered extremely probuble that Cardslon and olhor Mormon settlements in that soction will be found lo bo in United Statos territory. All the l$ud iu that vicinity has been occupied by virtuo of Canadian grants, and tho great canal of the Canadian Northwest Tr rigid ion company traverses aportion of tho territory that may bo in dis­ pute. According lo tho reports made by the surveyors,some o f tho monuments that murk tho boundury aro forty miles south of tho places where thoy ' should bo.—“A r 6 'ue *p 1 nco there is ho monument at tho place, where ■ it should be, in order to bo proporly aligned with tho othors, but it*'is found about six miles south of that pluco. ; ... It seems aluost mere li.blothat such serious mistakes should have beea made, but tho mutter has been con­ sidered of sufficient importance b y the government lo justify tho ordering of a now survey, especially in-* view of the fact thut, if tho boundary monu- rnonts ehould be found to be as much out of lino as is reported, that, fact would liavo a groat effect upon the plans for diverting tho waters o f St. Mary’s river to Milk river,upon tfbich tho geological survey is again at work. T o C a n c e l P a tents. Suit has been commenced iu tho United States district court by Dis­ trict Attorney W. B. Rodgers, for tho doparimont of justico of tbo United States, against Senator William A*. Clark lo set aside patents issued under the timber and stone act and n-signod to him, for government ands in this stnte. The suit involves nearly 10,000 acres of timber lauds, valued at many thousands of dollars. D o e r L o d g e P a p e r ’s A d v ice t o O w n ­ ers o f Idle D r e d g e s .
