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.

Mrs. Ann Tovoy, who has a desert claim in the Big Hole country, Bca- verhoad county, that when tho lund was surveyed proved to bo school land asked tho stato to relinquish tho laud so that she would not lose hor desert claim. Tho stato agreed to do so providing tho government would allow it to malio a soloctiou of other or lieu laud for that relinquished. Tho maltor was reforred to the secre­ tary of the interior, who today replied that if the state desired to relinquish the section of school land involved it might select other laud. Tho ruling is of importance as thoro aro a num­ ber of similar cases pending. Law Knocked Out. Fort Scott, July 8.—A jury of the most prominent business men of Fort Scott was just four minutes in finding one of tho state’s new liquor laws, passed as a result of Mrs. Nution’s crusade, unconstitutional. It was tbj} inquisition law which authorized county attorneys to summon and ex­ amine witnesses touching their know­ ledge of tho violation of tho law. Dan A.

Tho building was a largo three story frame house situated about .‘i(J0 feet from tlie Northern Pacific depot and was patronized chiefly by railroad employes. When tho alarm of lire was sounded tho building was en­ veloped in (lames and in less than an hour tho building was entirely de­ stroyed, logother with iho Northorn Pacific oil house and coal docks, tho latter blocking tho tracks and delay­ ing all trains several hours. Tho firo started iii tin stairway of tho second story shutting oft all exit from tho two uppor floors. Some of tho occupants jumped to the grouud from both stories and of tho numbor about 11 were .seriously injured, arms being broken, backs terribly w reached and c tI k rwi.-e hurt Two men, names unknown were suffocated and their bodies burned to a crisp. One was a section em­ ploye and tho other a young man about 17 years of ago who had come to tho town only a short time ago. New York, July 8.—Tho new Phil­ ippine tariff has received its finishing touches at tho war department, tho Washington correspondents reports, and it will bo sent by mail to Gov. Taft in a few days.

An important provision afToctiiig goods iu transit has boon made, in­ cluding the permitting of consignees to declare all imports which shall ar- rivo in the Philippines within GU days after tho tariff is put into operation, either under the old schedules now- in use or under the now duties. After that period tho old military customs rovonue law. fdtiuileil oil Spanish law, will forever coase. Tho now law is expoiled to produce annually $15,- 000,001) levenue for the support of the insular government and to redueo materially imports from all countries except the l nited States and Spain, particular attention being given to the protection of Philippine indus­ tries against rivals iu tho western Pacific and tho Indian ocean. Tho government, at Washington anil (lie commission at Mauila iiavo been working over the turiIT since lust August, and now that full agreement has been reached it is expcctod that congress at its next session will ap- provo the selicdulos without modifi­ cation and put them into the statutes.

To obtain the facts in tho case 1 wrote to Mr. Whito tho Christian Seienco publication committco at Philadelphia, who sent me tho fol­ lowing statement. “It is said- Mrs. Birdsall has been attending tho Christian Scientist church iu tho Fuller building, on Eighteenth and Market streets.
