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.

L a r g es^nà/m o st' Cçày.énient-/ -Canton,'0., Aug. 4.—Albert. Kirks, a.former resident of Cincinnati, who for‘some, years past'lias been the foreman of a safe and lock works here, made the announcement today that he had discovered a metal against which the wonderful powder invonted in Germany, and which is known to have eaten, after ignited, through every known substance, has no effect. The action of the powder lias been explained at length in many scientific journals. When ignited it formfc a fiery liquid, which eats through inch and a half armor plate of fire proof \ safes within four seconds time. Mr. Kirks'has been experimenting for some -time past, . endeavoring to find somo metal or j>reparation which would withstand tho terrible on­ slaughts which have - been made by the powder. He claims to have suc­ ceeded, and says that patents are now pending before the. patent - commis­ sioner atAVashington. The powder which has been so dangerous,1 if placed in- the bands of the sharp criminals of tho world, would allow them to enter any kind of a safe, or let them o.ut of any kind of a prison. The discovery of the now metal will revolutionize the safe making indus­ try all over tho world. Kirks has so far refused to divulge his secret, saying that he will not do so until he haB secured his patents, and then ho will show tho world what he has. ___________ R a ises the P r ice to G e t M a rried. Notice\ is hereby given that all per sons who contemplate eutering into the holy Btato of matrimony would better lose no time in, attending to the matter unless it. is that they are pay ah advance in the price of the license. Of course, the matter is not settled and will not be until after Clork of the Court John T. Atbey boars from tho collector of internal revenue, but tho chances are that tho price will go up. Lato last mouth the secretary of the treasury made a ruling to the effect that hereafter all marriage licenses and bonds of guardians and administrators should have attached to them a 50 cent internal' revenue stamp. I -, As there is nothing in the.; consti­ tution of Cascade county;,tó ndmit of the encouraging - o f . marriage, Mr. Athey says,jf the siamp'-is lobe affixed, the man. who gets, the girl dr Uie.£iri who gets .the’ manj'must pay for it, .and .the price /thereafter wiU be $2.50,; : y .He written to the - collector of internal reyehne ' a t , Helena and he 'expeet8.a reply. in a few days, .when an official announcement will then be be inado.^-Great Falls Tribune. . /T h é Philadelphia Record gives the following,'as the^difference between a widdwandi/gras^Tdowi^'A.widow is a woman who\ has buried.her hus- SHOULD A L L BE ENUM E R A T E D . School Children Livin g on R e s e r v a - tlons M u st Be Counted. School children others than those of Indians, although they live upon Indian reservations, should bo enumerated, in’.the school census. Attorney\ General Donovan holds to this effect in' answeriug an inquiry he received from Thomas Cowan, a school clerk atj AltyD, tbe.< mining camp upon the ceded 6trip of the Blackfeot Indian reservation. The at­ torney general says that as it has been been held that the property of white men living upon reservations is liable for taxation, the same rule would call for an enumeration of school children living upon reservations unless they are of Indian parentage. In the lat- ler event the government educates them and they cannot be enumerated. The attorney general says: “Replying to your favor of tho 2tith instant, in which you ask if any of the school children on tho Indian reservation should bo enumerated in your school consus, would say that it has oeen repeatedly hold that prop­ erty belonging to white porsons upon Indian reservations may bo taxed for the benefit of thè sohool district in which the snme is situatod, and it necessarily follows that if tho prop­ erty of white residents on tho Indian reservations may be taxed for tho bonofit of the school district, children of white parentage and of such In­ dians as have severed their tribal re­ lations, are entitled to attend school and should bo enumerated in the School C6D8U8. “So far as children of Indian par­ entage belonging to the tribe are con­ cerned, they are wards of the govern­ ment and are supposed to receive their education through such falilities as are afforded by (he general govern­ ment and not by the state of Mon­ tana. Indians are not considered to be residents of the state of Montana, nor is their property subject to taxa­ tion by the state; thoir children, thbrofore, should not bo enumerated. “It is contrary, to the rules of this office to rendor official opinions except when requested. by ; state officials, county,attorneys and boards of com; missioners. I have deviated from the rule in this instance for the reason that you are :so isolated that you would be unable taobtain an opinion from your county attorney in season to .enable you to make proper census.” Cold from Klondike. •\Seattle August ,3.—The steamer Humbolt arrived from- Skagway Ibis morning with $500,000 in Klondike gold and reported that five men had * f »» - been* killed by Indians 200 miles from Valdez:island; ~ S t r ik e Settled . • / Red.

This church vvhero we are now assembled has been ro- painted and papered and other im provements have been made on U 10 church aud parsonage property to the amount of $250. Our past ex perience assures us that the mombors of the mission, with their families and the visitors will find a hourly- welcome among these hospitable peo­ ple. Interesting services bavo boon held at Burton and Willow Creek. Dupuyer—Brother A. W: Hammer, pastor, was assisted by Brother Opie iu revival meetings in which much good has been • accomplished aud a number have been added to the church. The parsonage has been completed at a cost of $800. Services iave also been bold at Shelby, Cut Bank and Raymond. These are all important centers of a now aud grow­ ing country.

Brother Riggin is present aDd will givo a full report of this important work. Tho first day was givon principally to instructions to committees and hearing tho roports of tho pastors. The second day tho examinations and roports wore continued. A. W. Hammer and L. R. Kufus woro recom­ mended to tho Aunual Conference for full membership. Reveronds Euster and Rodger were each called away to attend funerals. The third day was given up almost wholly to reading and hearing roports from the various standing committees. On Sunday ovoning before tho reading of the appointments, tho fol­ lowing complimentary resolutions were adopted. 1st. We have been greatly blessed in the superintendency of Bishop Fow­ ler. He has known our Montana work from early history. As corresponding secretary of the missionary socioty and as Bishop he has visited us a number of times and every time has given an inspiration and helpfulness to our work that has been no small factor in its developments. His views and counsels, his insight into the needs and possibilities of Montana have aided in socuriug the funds ap­ propriated, and ferw can realizo how greatly this influence has operated. His administrative ability, his erudi­ tion, his wide experience, and his kind associations have left such an impression on us and our work that we can aesure him and his colleagues that be cannot too often; be assigned to us.,. • .

Enrique Caprilles former governor of Santiago do Cuba who was on board the Spanish boat Viscaya during tho battle of Santiago, in an allompt to escape with tbe city records and treasure of Sautiago, in an interview regarding Rpar Admiral Schley said. “I was on tho bridgo of tho Viscaya and saw tho fight. 1 saw the Brook­ lyn and from an excellent position observed tho movement. Tho Brook­ lyn attacked us and it is ridiculous to say the Brooklyn kept too far away or stayed out of the fight. “There cannot have been cowardice where the ship engaged three others. Eyo-witnossos of tho battle are dying off, and it is bettor to finally settle tho question now while enough wit­ nesses are living,” M a la v a r i S u c c e s s o r of •. A guinaldo,''; :' -/Issu e s a Proclam a tion. ; Manila, August o.-^MiguelMalavar,; who has been recognized as tho suc v cessor of Aguinaldo., by the Filipino junta at Hong Hong, ..has:- issued7 a - proclamation, dateJ- J úly 16;’copies which arrived here this morning, g iv-;. ing assürance to the natives ,• : active campaign,and expressing hope - for its successful issue—. .... The proclamation, of which 4,000-. copies have been printed, purports to emanate from BataDgas. It is - a characteristic insurgent document, charging the Americans with all sorts of atrocities. It recounts the losses : of guns and ammunition and the' death of four distinguished American officers, July 5, although it is said the authorities concealed the facts. Tho proclamation threatens General Galles with death for treachery, and warns all-Filipinos who surrender that they ' will never. berable\to live outside the, American lines. ' • ; ' ! i . Malavar’ claims he ha's sufficient arms and supplies to continue the ; fighting indefinitely. ’ • Ahe Americans believe tbe procla­ mation was really written by Agon- cillo, the former representative of Aguinaldo in Europe, at Hong Kong, and that he probably has never seen Mnlavar. Strong efforts are being made by tho police to prevent the distribution of the proclamation. S e n s a tion a l C h a r g e s . Butte, August 2.—Tho legal dis­ pute betwoen Miles Finlan nucLF. A. Heinze for the possession of the Minnie Halev mine, has been a fruit­ ful source of sousations, notably last week, when Judge Harney was com­ mitted by Notary Gilbert for con­ tempt in refusing to be sworn and to testify, but today’s proceedings in the . now celebrated case are of the most', sensational in the judicial hjstory of Montana. Attorneys for the succès- sors to Miles ' Finlan in the' 'Minnie Haloy case sought a new’ trial of the; recent suit decided adversely to thé Finlan interests, and in support of tho motion they today presented aifi-- davits charging Judge Harney with drunkenness while on the bench and with being influenced in his decision by illicit relations with Mrs. Ada H. t Brackett, who is alleged to be tho paid agent of Heinze, and who sought by the blandishments of her sox to influence Harney in his de­ cisions. The affidavits spocify numer­ ous meetings between Harney and the Brackett woman, and alpo set forth identical letters that passed between the judge and the woman; in which Mrs. Brackett plainly sought to bias the judge’s decision. H e a d in g f o r M o n tana.
