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.

Filipinos Surrender- Manila, Sept. 22.—Aguinaldo’s fo r ­ mer bodyguard, Major Alhambra, two captains, two lieutenants and 2i) men with 28 rifles, surrendered about 40 miles north of Bulec, Island of Luzon, to Capt. George Detcbandy of the 22d United Stales infantry yesterday and look the oath of alle­ giance and were released. Since Aguinaldo left General Mac- Arthur’s house for his present place of confinement lie has. never left the premises, although he is at liberty to do so if accompanied by an officer. The reason assigned is that he fears assassination at the hands of the par­ tisans of the late Geueral Luna. General ChaiTee has refused the /• request for the release of the prison era on the island of Guam. He con­ siders that their reloaso would not bo safe until the surrender or capture of Malvarand Lukban. To Test The Law, »-Holoua, Sept. 23.—The tost case to decide as to the constitutionality of that soction of the anti gambling law which prohibits the use of merchan­ dise slot machines, was made up to-, day. For several mouths the cigar dealers and others in Montana have been raising a fund to lake the law into court, and now that it is raised the fight will be made. Yesterday Elmer Woodman, a Main street dealer, opened his slot machine for business. His first customers were KnuteOpheim and August Fack, two dealers, and many othors tried their tuck, aiid tbo machine was kept running all day. County Attornoy McConnell had other witnesses beside the dealers try .the machine and as soon as pos* sible the case will be taken to (ho district court. “ Tho proceeding is instituted mere Iy as a friendly test of- the law,” said Mr. Woodman. “Eyery cigar dealer in the state is interested in the case and its issue wjll determine, at least, what disposition will bo macjo of the cigar slot machines. Wre are in no way interested in the gambling law except that provision which includes cigar machines iu_ the category of gambling devices.” Day of Atonement, “ Vom Kippur,” or the day of atone» mont, the highest of all holy days of the year for those of tho Hebrew faith, was ushered in at half-past 7 o’clock last Sunday evening. For them this is tho day when God in his mercy extends forgiveness to the fallen sinner who seeks repentance for hiB transactions. Beginning on that evening those who belonged to the Hebrew faith, abstained from all tho enjoyments of the world and spent 24 hours in fasting and in prayer. To Expel Wellington. Baltimore, Sept. 23.—George L. Wellington’s ulk-ged remurks anent the assassination of President McKin­ ley may cost him his seat in the Unilod States senate. Through a close friend of Senator Foraker tho statement was made in this city to­ night that a vigorous movement was in progress to expel U. S. Senator Wellington. Sonator Hanna is expected to offer the resolution when congress meets, and Senator Foraker, with numerous other senators high in the councils of tho republican party, are expocted to fight for the measure until it is carried to victory. -School Law. Standard Has a Fire. Anaconda, Sept. 23.— Fire broke out in the composing room of the Anaconda Standard at 5:40 o’clock this afternoon, and for a time threat­ ened to demolish the entire plant. The flames were not extinguished until 8¿10 o’clock. The damage done was such that it was impossible to use the machinery for tbepurposeofissdiagthe morning edition and at 7:40 o’clock tho entire staff of printors and reporters depart­ ed for Butte for the . purpose of get­ ting out. the morning paper on the press of thé Butte Daily Inter Moun­ tain. ' J' • TheMontanian-Chronicle $2. “Is a school district authorized to collect apportionment - for a married woman undor the age of 21 years?” This is tho questiou that Superin­ tendent Wolch has been called upon to answer by County Superintendent Dilwortb, of Red Lodge. The law says that school districts shall receive money from the utato for all children between the ageB of 6 and 21 years of age. Mr. Welch ! b of the opinion that so long as the student is under the statutory age it is not material whether sho is mar­ ried'or not. Mr. Welch will adviso Miss Dilworth that tho district inter­ ested may colloct for tho young woman if she is under 21 years of age, whether she is married or not. Willing to Consider Claims. London, Sept. 23.—The ‘ foreign office is disposed to settle the claims of Americans for deportation from the Transvaal without troubling the .United States embassy to collect more testimony or bring over witnesses. The demands of the Americans will be voluntarilv scaled down by the United States embassy from the large sums at first asked. Insurance on President's Life. Cleveland, O , Sept. 23.— Finance tomorrow will eay: ‘‘The amount of life insurance carried by President William McKinley has been a subject of considerable discussion through the newspapers and some of the in­ surance journals. ^ Finance has as certained that President McKinley carried $315,000' rih life insurance p o l i c i e s ’ » , Buffalo. Sept. 23.—Leon F. Czol gosz was placed on trial this morning charged with the murdor of Presi­ dent William McKinley. H e entered a plea of “ guilty,” which wns subse quently changed to “ n o fguilty,” by direction of the court. All the events of the day it decided that the trial would be short. The court convened at 10 o’clock and: within two hours eight jurors had beon secured. No technicalities were raised by counsel and it was significant that every tnan who said he had not formed an opin­ ion on the case was excused by the district attorney. Those who acknow­ ledged they had formed an opinion or stated that thev wore prejudiced, but admitted their opiuiou could be changed by evidence wore accopted by each side. Justice Truman C. White, ono of the oldest and most experienced of the supreme court judges was ou the bench. Immediately after the open­ ing of the court and after tho prisoner had pleaded, Justice LorouL. Lewis, former Justice Robert C. Titus and Calton R. Ladd said they were ready to act in behalf of the prisoner. “ I t would be best,” ho said, “ for my colleague and myself that I say somothing regarding our presence here as attorneys for tho defendant. At the time my name was suggested I was out of tho city and knew noth­ ing of what was transpiring hero with roforence to the selection of, counsel for the defendant. Whon the cir­ cumstances of my selection were told to me I was„ oxlromoly reluctant to accept. But the duty had beeu im­ posed and I considered it my duty in all tho circumstances to defond this man. I asked that no evidence bo presouted hero—that tho court will not permit tho acceptance qf auy evidouce unless it would, bo at the trial of the most meagre criminal in tho laud.” “ I am familiar with theso circum­ stances,” says Justice White in reply, “and I wish to say that 1 will give you every assurance that the prisoner will have a fair and impartial trial, and that during the progross of the trial he will receivo such treatment as tbo law demands in any. criminal cuse.” The work of securing tho jurors was then undertaken with celerity that was amazing. Before the day was over the entire panol had been sworn, tho jurors bad listenod to a description of the Temple of Music, where tho crime was committed, thoy had seen photographs of that interior and boon told by tho surgeons what causod tho death of tho president uud the effect of the assassin’s shot upon tho various organs of the body. They also learned why tho fatal bullet bad not been located. The presentation of the government’s case began short­ ly beforo throe o’clock, when Assist­ ant District Attornoy Halter* began with much deliberation to address the jury. Ho spoke very briefly. “ We shall show,” he said, “ that, for a few days previous to tho shooting this defendant bad predicted tho shooting of the president. He knew that on the sixth day of September the president would receive the shot in tho Tomplo of Music; that on that day be went to tho exposition, got into line with the peoplo and ap­ proached the president, that he had a weapon concealed in his hand, and as the president extended his hand in kindly greeting be Gred the fatal shot. “ He fired two shots, in fact. »One of them took offect in the abdomen aod caused tho mortal wound which resulted in the president’s death. That in brief is the story we shall show you. The witnesses will tell you this story and I am sure that when you have heard the evidence you will have nodifficulty in reaching a verdict of murder in the first degree.” The first witness, Samuel J. Fields, chief engineer of the Pan- Amnrican exposition, described the ground floor of the Temple of Masic and was fol lowed by Perry A. Bliss, a photog rapher who presented views of the interior of the building. T h e . re maiudor of the afternoon was taken up with the testimony of tho three physicians, two of whom had attended the president the last days, while the other performed the autopsy. Tho latter, Dr. Harvey R. Gaylord, was the first of the trio to be called. He described the locution of the wounds in tho stomach and the loca­ tion of the bullet. The caime o f death was attributed to the gun shot wound but fundamentally, he said, it was due to changes back o f tho Btomacb, in the pancreos, caused by the “ break­ ing down” of the material of the pancreas as a result of tho passage of the bullet. Dr. Hermau Mynter followed and his testimony was importantinasmuch as it brought out the fact that the reason why the fatal bullet had not been located at tho autopsy wbb be­ cause of tho unwillingness of the president’s relatives to have tho body further mutilated by their instru­ ments. Dr. Myutor and Dr. Mann, who followed him, both testified that tho primal cause of death was tho gun shot wound in the stomach. One effect of this wound was, they said, to.cause tho gaugreno to form in the pancreas, and tho spot of poisoned tissue was as largo around as a silvor dollar. Cruel War Still Continues. The New Party’s Platform. Kansas City, Sept. 23.—Tho now allied party has issued tho following declaration of principles: Tho political and economic condi­ tions of our country have made it imperative for the wealth producing clnssos of the United St&tos to unite in one vast political organization to tho end that class legislation in our government shall be abolished. First, <Vo demand the initiative and referendum and the imperative man­ date. Second, we favor tho public owner­ ship of all public utilities as the peo­ plo shall from time to time decide. Thirdj the land, including all nat­ ural resources, the heritage of the people, should bo secured from Bpec-, ulativo purposes and all ownership should bo prohibited Lund now hold by railroads ami other corpora­ tions in oxcess of their uutual uoeds or hold by aliens should bo reclaimed and hold for actual soltlers only. Fourth, wo favor scientific money, based upon tbo entire wealth of tbo people of the nation and not redeem­ able in any specific commodity, but to the full legal tender for all debts, private or public, to bo issued by tbo government only and without the in- terveutiou of buuks, sufficient in quantity to meet tho requirements of commorce. Fifth, tv? believo in just and nat­ ural taxation. Sixth, we demand the election of the president, vico president, federal judges and senators by the peoplo. Soventh, wo favor the creation of a cabinet office of tho department of labor and equitable arbitration. Eighth, wo favor tho establishment of postal savings banks. Ninth, wo favor tho adoption of such constitutional amendments as may be necessary to make tho above laws effective. New York, Sept. 23.—Commenting upon the South African situation,the London correspondent of the Tribune says anxiety with regard to the situa­ tion in South Africa' is intensified by Lord Kitchener’s latest message an­ nouncing the loss of three more' Brit­ ish guns. The war is not over and even some of the unionist papers are blaming the government for the man­ ner in which the country has been deluded into the belief that the Boers wore at the end of their resources. General Botha has for a week past been meditating a raid into Natal and no doubt he is acting in co-oper­ ation with other Boer leaders. Just whether he has enough material at his command to outer upon a large scale in northern Natal is open to doubt, but at the same time Lord Kitchener may uot have enough men to successfully oppose the Beer com­ mandant general unless he consider­ ably reduces tho number uow em­ ployed iu chasing commandoes the whole length and breadth of Cape Colony. Natal is almost the only position in South Africa which ¡8 beginning to recover from the misfortunes of the last two years, and it offers very tempting prey to the raider. A fresh invasion of tbo colony would be re­ garded here as a real calamity. The financial outlook also is far from satisfactory. On tho stock exchange rumors are current that the chancellor of the exchequer will ultimately have to float another large issue of consols. The Deed Filed. The deed transferring the G. F. & C. railway to the Great Northern railway, was filed in tho office of the county clerk and recorder of Cascade county last week. The price men­ tioned in consideration of the deal is $750,000, and the document bears $300 worth of revenue stamps, the argest amount over usodon any legal document in that county. Tho deed is signed by T. T. Galt, for tho Great Falls & Canada railway and by J. J. H ill for the Groat North­ ern railway. By the terms of the sale tho Groat Northern Railway company stipulates that the work of widening tho guago of tho road to a standard guago Bhall be completed by Oct. 30,1002. Tbo road will be standard guage to a point near Sweet Grass, where it joins tho Alberta road, which is now being ebangpd to broad guago, as far north as Lothbridge, which is the junctiou with tho Canadian Pa­ cific railway. Huns In Efflsy. Chicago, Sept. 17.—An effigy de­ signed to represent Leon Czolgosz, the assassin of the late president, was set on fire and hanged to an electric light polo at State and Madison streets one of the busiest cornersin Chicago. A large crowd shouted approvingly of the demonstration, hisBed their contempt for the assassin and de­ manded similar treatment for Emma Goldman. During all the excitement which lasted for three-quarters of an hour, no policeman was visible in the crowd and there was not the slightest interference with its actions. , Baltimore, Sept. 17.—Emma Gold­ man, the anarchist, was hanged and burned in effigy from a telegraph pole in tho eastern section of the city A large crowd witnessed the hanging,' cheering and jeering and hooting at the dummy. The Burlington Survey. The statement is published in. Bos­ ton that tho party of Chicago, Bur­ lington & Quincy surveyors who have beon for some time engaged in seek­ ing a right of way from Billing^ to Great Falls report that one has been selected which will permit of easy grades. The great scarcity of laborers in the west will, it is feared, hinder tem­ porarily at least tho beginning of actual work on the lino, but with the end of harvest season the labor sup­ ply will be better. May Issue McKinley Stamps. Washington, Sept. 23.—A special issue of stamps commendatory of the * ifo of the late President McKinley • is under contemplation at the post- office department. Consideration of the subject, however, has not pro­ gressed sufficiently to indicate defin­ itely what action may be taken. Typhoid Is Epidemic.* - ' & Fort Benton, Sept. 21.—Typhoid fever cases are coming into the hos­ pital here by the dozen, due, it is supposed, to the polluted wells at the railroad camps near Havre. The situation is becoming serious, and steps will probably be talcen b y L g ® the authorities to remedy the evil. - The same conditions prevailed-here„ at tho railroad camps last yeiin a 'iid ^ fp drastie measurea were taken authorities.
