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.

Holenar' May 2G.—The supreme court today ’suspended E. D. Weed from the practice of law in Montana for two years, after finding him guilty upon threo of the accusations made against him by Theodore •Mayer. Tho court declined to per­ manently dif-bar the attorney, the evidence of Mr. Weed's good char­ acter lending tho court to temper the punishment with mercy. Tho court was unanimous in re­ porting the conclusion that Mr.Weed should be punishod. Justice Pigott prepared the .decision of the court. The court dismissed the fourth ac­ cusation against Mr. Weod relative to his haviug collected money for George Leekley and failing to turn it over to that person, Tho court finds that the accusation relative to Mr. Weed deceiving Theodore Mayer in the laud deal is sustained, as well as the charges that he deceived Augell Schwendeuger in collecting their claims against a mining company. In concluding its opinion tbo court says: ‘“The judgmont of the court is that the accusod, Elbert D. Weod, bo and he is hereby suspended from his office of attorney and counsellor aud deprived of the right to practice as such in the courts of Montana, for the period of two years, to-wit, until the 2Gth day. of May, 190-1, at tho ex­ piration of which time ho pray, upon proper petition, supported bv satis­ factory evidence of good conduct meantime, be restored to hiB privil­ eges, Let the judgmont bo entered.” A Safe Distance. A Berlin dispatch of the 8th says: Professor K. Bierklaud, the Norwe­ gian physicist, was in Berlin recently for the purpose of demonstrating the powersjof his olectro magnetic cannon before a numbi..“ of experts iu elec­ trical qrtillory. Manufacturers has of­ fered to buy the inventiou for imme­ diate exploitation, providod Professor Bierkland will increase tho length of tho piece used iu the trials, so that it will throw a projectile weighing two tons a distance of twelve miles. Theoretically tbp doyioe can throw a projectilo weighing two tons a dis­ tance of ninety milos, or even further, by sufficiently prolonging the tube. The principle upon which the new gun acts bus not bueu mat(a public, but it-is known that the projectile ìb expelled from an ordinary cast-iron $ube thickly lyrappad wjl^oopper wire. This tube combination of course could b.o made more cheaply than tho cauuon sow in nsp, No explosive gases result from dis­ charge of the now gun. Professor Bierkland’s invention haB stirred up great interest among teck nical observers, spmo of whom aro of the opiuionH that it signifies a greater revolution in fighting material than that brought about by discovery of gunpowder. New Land District. Register George D.Gresne and Re­ ceiver John Horsky of the Helena land office yesterday received official notice of the establishment of tho Great Falls laud district and a de­ scription of its boundaries. Commis­ sioner of tho General Land Offieo Brnger Herman says that further no­ tice of the precise timo when the land office at Great Falls will be ready to receive applications and to transact business will bo given by tho registor and receiver for publication. In his uotico of the establishment of tho district Commissioner Herman says: Notice is hereby given that, by an act of congress approved April 28, 1902, all that portion of tho state of Montana bounded and described as follows: Beginning at the northeast corner of the state and running thence west on tho national boundary line betwoou the United States aud British possession to the poiut intersected by the eastern boundary liuoof the Black- feet Indian reservation; thoncosouth along the lino of said reservation to where it is intersected by tbo oaslern line of the Lewis and Clarko forost reservation; thouce Bouth on said line to the soulhwost corner of township 22 north, range S west; thonco oast along the line betweeu township 21 and 22 north, to the northeast coruor of township 21 north, range 4 west; thenco south along tho line be­ tween ranges 3 and 4 wost, to the north east corner of township 14 north,range 4 west; thenco east along the lino be­ tweeu townships 14 and 15 north to the southeast corner of township 15 north, range 3 east; thenco north to the northeast cQrnor of said township; thence oast along the line between 15 and 1G north, to tho southeast oernor of township 111 north, rnuge 10 oasl; thence north along the line botwoou ranges 10 and 11 east, to the .north­ east corner of townships 18 and 19 north, to tho northeast cornor of town­ ship 18 north, range 12 oast; thence along the lino betwoeu ranges 12 nu(l 13 east, to tho Missouri rivor} theuco south aqcj past, following the Missouri rivor to tho east'lino of tho state of Montaua; thonco north along said line to the place of beginning, bo, and tbo same is hereby constituted, a qow land district, to be cq(locl Great Falls land ((ictY'iat of tho state of Montana: and the land oftpee for said district shall be located at the town of Groat £alh>, Combine Broken. Woo lbuyers who are operating in the western states appear to be at­ tempting to run a gigantic bluff on tho growers. Montana’s clip is not ready for the market yet, but will bo within tho nest six or eight weeks, aud the growers 'of this stato niay profit by the experiences of their Idaho breth­ ren. The dispatches from Idaho are to tho effect that somo lively wool sales took placo there, and about 2,300,000 pouuds chaugod hands iu one day at prioos lauging from 12 to 13 cents. The sales, however, wore not made until after tho woolbuyers’ clique had boon given a good scare. This is the way it buppouod, according to a Boise tolagram: “Tho buyers who hatfo been station­ ed bore for several weeks were quietly resting oa thoir oars, having, it is allogcd, entered into an agreement to onlertaincach otbor and let the grow­ ers ouitivate a wiiliuguoss to accept lowor prices than they were asking. This stoppod sales, and for two weeks or rnoro thero had been no movement* \Monday night some men outirely strange to this field dropped in. Those men wore representing houses that have not been represented in this soction. Before breakfast one of them had taken a 200,000-pound clip at bet­ tor tbau 12 conts. News of the saio got out as soon as the clique of buyers got abroad,aud after comparing notes tho old stagors found their works had boon stormod, and that they would havo to move rapidly if thoy were to get wool. The news wus Dashed up aud down tho road to those hanging round otbor places, and all bauds started out to got wool. “Tho tales of woo that had boon aung so long wore dropped, and every man was scrambling for wool. As a results,300,000 pounds changed hands at Boise, Mountuin Homo, Caldwell, Fayette \and IVeisor. The price lor tho host clip waB 13 oents, tho ayorage being about 1«. Horetoforo 12 cents was the best price talked about for the choicest wool in tho market.” < ‘ Imposed the Llmlt.Si’i^^gftwa Herbert H.

In that report, - which was made October 10, Matteson' , swore that the bank had to its credit in the hands of its reserve agents.--. $285,098.81, when as a matter o f fact, it had only $37,098.81.

Glendive, May 26.—The first-wool sale of the season to be «recorded at, this point was the clip of Jordan A Williams, numbering about 15,000 pounds, purchased by J. C. Morse, representing the firm of Harding A Cavelry of Boston. The price paid was 13£ cents. The clip i8 said to be an unusually fine one, a large per cent of it coming from young sheep.

C lihkkxbeakd , . v Washington, May24.-Lord Pounce- fote, tho British minister to tho United States, died at 5:35 o ’clock this morn­ ing. The improvement whick had been noted (q his condition during the past week received a sudden check about G o’clock last evening, when it was noticed that ho was experiencing difficulty in breathing. Dr. Jung, I ub . physician, wa§ immediately sent for« He decided upon a .consultation, and Dr. Thayer of Johns Hopkins univer­ sity arrived about 2 o’olock this morn­ ing. When Dr. Thayer left the em­ bassy at three o’clock the ambassador was resting so comfortably that a cablegram was sent to his son-in-law, Mr, Bromloy, in London, that there, was no immediate danger. Soon after 3 o ’clock a weakness of the heart de­ veloped and his pulse began to ool-. lapse, Re died so peacefully that it surprised even his physician. At the bedside when the distinguished diplo­ mat passed away were Mrs. Pauncc- fote, the Hon. Maude Pauncofote Miss Syoil and Miss Audrey, Dr. Jung and a Mr. Radford, one pf the. clerks Washington, May 2-1.—Tributo was paid today to tho memory of Jean Bap­ tiste Donation de Yimorue, Yicomte de Rochambesu, when the Hamar monument to tbo illustrious patriot and general was unvoilod in the pres­ ence of the president, his cabinet, a distinguished delegation represent­ ing the Froqph govern man t and many other prominent guests. Tho statue is placed in LafoyeUe square, oppo­ site. tho Lafayette monument, whero a vast crowd of people congregated this afternoon to witness tho unveil­ ing ceremonies. Presidoqt Roosevelt spoke brioOy and extolled Vicomte do Rochnmbeau. Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, of Mas­ sachusetts, sounded tho clarion note of tho day, delivering the chief oration. Both addresses ware Bincere oulogins of tho character, devoted fealty to the cause o f liberty and tho courageous qualities of the hero whose statue served to inspiro tho sentences. Romo, May.23—Tho vitican is dis­ cussing the probability of the archdio- cosoof Now York Bonding in tho name of Archbishop Iroland of St Paul, with tho namesof Bishops Cbus. McDounoll of Brooklyn, N. Y. and Auxiliary Bishop John M. Farley of Now York, as candidates, from whom tho pro­ paganda shall select a successor to tho late Archbishop Corrigan. Tho boliof in this possibility is based on the idea that tho Catholics of tho archdiocese are anxious to havo a car­ dinal as archbishop and that none of the American archbishops or bishopB havo such a good ohaace of obtaining tho scarlet borolta as Archbishop Ireland. P r o s p e c tors Are Blocked. Butte, May 23.—The attempt to : rush into the Thunder Mountain dis­ trict beforo trails were passable has rosulted iu several thousand men being blockaded on the Stites trail in northern Idaho, and thoy are reported to be in desperate straits. A letter from Stites Bays that three pack train* with provisions haye been started from that point for tho relief of tb* prospectors. It is foared that many fatalitios have resulted. Tho snow ia deep and tho trail dangerous, aud ill not bo passable for a month. Bounty Claims Are Many. Her Privilege Oqrva, Now York, May 24.—Suit was en­ tered in tho United States district court today by the Countoss of Beuna Vista against General Brooke, of tho United Statos army, for S230,0GG. The counters alleges that General Ilrooka abrogated rights held by her through inheritance to the privilege of conduoting the slaughter house at Havana and to the distribution of meats and the collection of th^o fixed charges forsai^ meofo- The countess qlaitqod these privileges by virtue of a royal decree by tho. -King of Spain: dated 1704. Bounty claims are still piling up with tho stale auditing board at a groat rato. During the lasttwo weeks an unusually largo number have been sent in from all parts of tho Btate. According to tho number of claims filed, \tho extermination of the snarl ing wolf aud sneaking coyoto is pro gressing at a groat rate. There are now on file with the auditing board claims amounting to about $75,000. Those funds from which these are paid contains about $11,000. Thoso figure indicate the extont to which Lbe state can go in settling with the slayers of preying boasts. It is probable that the boarc will ordor another batch of claims paid. Hetped School Funds. Helena, May 24.—Tho permanent school funds of the state receives a liberal donation from the Unitec States government today when Gov­ ernor J.
