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.

IT r t . n i m i i i . n Washington, May 19,—President Roosevelt is showing lively interest iu the status of the irrigation bill vyhich passed the -senate and has been reported to the house with cer tain amendments. The president has asked a number of members of congress as to tho prospects for tho early consideration of the moasuro and has indicated his earnest dosiro that the bill should become a law at this session of congress. A thorough poll of the houso is boiug made by tho frieuds of the ir rigation measure, and enough is known of the result of the poll to warrant the statement that there is a considerable majority in favor of the bill. The bill is, in brief, a now homestead law mado applicable to the arid lands. It simply provides that tho United\ States government should create new rivers through the building of reservoirs and ' main line canals, and - should so regulate the flow of streams .'already iu existence that their contorts would beavailablo for irrigation during a season of dry weather. Only those are to be per mitted to secure land under this newly created water supply who are in truth aud intent home-builders, and appropriations of land are to be restricted to the homostead law modi fled, and severely guarded in its pur pose by tbe oporatiou of this special act. These settlers are not only to resido upon tbe land, but are to re turn to th« government, in the courso of time, by a series of deferred pay ments, tho entire cost of creating tho supply of water which is to be made available. __ It was under a republican adminis tration, after 10 years of bitter con troversy, that tho homestead act be came a law, and the bill, introduced by Galusha Grow, was signed by President Abraham Lincoln. The speechos made against the homestead aet read today with a strange similar ity to tho arguments made against the present proposed irrigation homo- stead act, which is the homestead aet of 18G2 morely modified to suit pres ent conditions in the arid portion of tho public land to bo disposod of. u. s. Will N o t L e t Go. Washington, May 19.—Only a brief timo was devotod by tho sonato today to tho consideration of the Philippine government bill. Dollivor, of Iowa, supported tho bill, which, he said, was ono of the most important pieces of conservative legislation presented since the civil war. Ho arraigned the democratic minority for its oppo sition to tho measure. Ho insisted that the Philippine insurrection was a thing of tho past and declared that under no circumstancea would the United States relinquish hold of tho Philippines.

Justice Pigott has notified the democratic state central commit tee that ho is not a candidate, thereby clearing the way for all who desire to entor the race at the convention in August or September. “All I have to say on tho subject at this lime is that I will not be a candidate,” said Justice Pigott yes terday. “No matter what the circum stances may be, I will not enter the contest.” In response to questions as to his reasons, Justice Pigott said that ha did sot wish to speak for pub lication at this time. He said he had notified the central committee o f his conclusion not to enter the race. All the new styles in ladies shirt waists now in at the Choteau Mer cantile Co.

Bontou to be rogistor and receiver o f the now Groat Falls land office in this city, meets with general approval of both Democrats and Republicans. Both men are dean able, and popular, and bettor appoint ments could hardly have been mado. James M. BurliDgamo is a native of Minnesota, having been born at Owa- tonua, 34 years ago. Ho studied for the law and graduated at the Univer sity of Minnesota and was admitted to practice on tho day ho was twouty- ono. He came to Groat Falls in 1800 and had been prominently identified with its interests ever sinco, boing engaged in the real estate and insurance busi ness with W. S. Frary. Mr. Burlingamo was married to Miss Amy Gregg in this city niuo years ago, and has two children and a pleas ant home on Third aven ue north. Ho was for a timo deputy collector of rev enue under C. M. Webster, tho pres- eut collector of customs of Montaua, and was secretary of tho Republican central committoo in 189G and secre tary of tho stale committoo in 1900. He has always been a republican. Charles H. Bouton was born in Sara toga county, Now York, 55 years ago. He road law for two yoars,coming wost to Fairbault, Minn., and boing admit ted to the bar twenty-eight years ago from the officoof General Colo of that city. Ho practiced law twelve years in Dodgo county, boing probate judgo for seven years and came to Greet Falls in August, 1887. He was the first judge of the district court ever elected for tho district of Cascade, Fergus aud Choteau countios and held court for threo years at Great Falls, Lowiatown and Bouton. Tho district was divided to make Cascado •ounty a separate) district and Judgo Benton was eloctod again in the fall of1 892. He servod the cou n ly of Cas cade in the capacity of district judgo for seven years and was succeeded iu office by Judge Leslie in 1897. Ho was married in 187G to Augusta E,’ tho daughtor of Judge G. W. Slocum of Dodgo county, Minn., and ias two grown daughters. Ho |has a lomo on Eighth avo. and Thirteenth Btreet and has practiced law steadily since his retirement from tho bonch, bis work being particularly directed to land matters. Ho was ondorsed by every member of tho board in Cascado county, as was Mr. Burlingamo, and both had the endorsement of tho reg ular county and state coatral com mittee for the positions. Tho appointment of Judgo Benton is a particularly happy ono and ho is boing congratulated on all sides to night. The appointments boat the record for swiftnoss, having only loft Great Falls four days ago. A fter M o re Jack Tars.

It is cal culated, if he were obliged to buy the postage ou all mail matter received at the White House, tho cost would bo one-sixth of his salary. King Edward has a daily quota of 1,000 letters and 3,000 papers, doubt less a heavy tax on his attention The czar and the German emperor receive from 500 to 600 a day. The emperor likes to answer many himself. The king o f Italy gets 500,' and.the young queen of Holland struggles with the daily bnrden o f between 100 and 150 letters. The judges of good cigars in this country are few and far between, says an export. Tho great difficulty with tho people who think they know good cigars is that thoy lay too much stress ou the color of tho weed. The color makes uot tho slightest, difference, * and you are just as likely to find one of tho rankost kind of cigars with the deep black color of the genuine Havana ns you are to find a bad one among thoso that are yellow as straw. Tho bost way to toll a cigar is by tho fool of it. Take a cigar iu your hands and give it a gonuino pressure, holding it closo to the oar. If tho cigar is a good ono it will bo just the least bit flexiblo and tho fingers will sink into tho wrapper. It gives forth no porcoptiblo sound. If tho cigar is hard and closo rolled and when placod to tho ear sounds as though you wore pressing straw togethor, bowaro* Tho bost cigars are made .of tho same loaf as tho wrapper and are closoly rolled. The common cigars are what are kuown as filled and contain nil kinds of refuso from tho tables whoro tho good cigars are mado. Thoro are somo fillod cigars that are good smokos, but you seldom find a Havana or n Manila or good Cuban or Koy West smoke that is not rolled. Many poople who go into a eigar store to got an imported smoko do not follow up tho salesman whou he takos the cigar from the case and are consequently very often fooled. Thoy are given domestic brands and are charged imported prices for them. Those “good cigar judges” cannot toll the difference when there is all tho difference in tbe world. If you must have an imported smoke, make the clerk hand you tho box and look closoly at the revenuo stamp. The stamps on domostic goods are green and white, whilo thoso on the foreign boxes uro ail yellow and whito. Look into tho next case before purchasing an importod cigar. If thoy hayo no boxes iu the case to which ib attached a yellow and whito stamp, don’t at tempt to make a purchaso. The clerk will sell you a cigar ho calls imported, but it will not bo tho real articlo.—Washington Post. R a n g e rs A p p o inted.
