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.

J. Bal­ four, was unprecedented. Mr. Bal­ four arose at 2:45 p. m., and an­ nounced the terms of peace in South Africa as follows: “His excellency, Lord Milner; his excellency, Mr. Steyn, Gen. Brom- ner, Gen. Dèwet and Judge Hertzog, acting in behalf of tho Free State, and Gen. Schalkberger, Gen. Reitz, Gen. Louis Botha and Gen. Delarey, acting for their respective burghers, desiring to terminate the present hos­ tilities, agree to the following terms: “The burgher forces in the field will forthwith lay down their arms and hand over all their guns, rifles and ammunition in their possession or under their control, desist fiom further resistance and acknowledge King Edward VII. as their lawful sovereign. The manner of the sur­ render will be arranged between Lord Kitchener and Commandant Gen. Botha, assisted by Gen.'Delarey and Chief Commandant Dewet. * “ Second— All burghers outside the limita of the Transvaal and Orange River Colony and all prisoners of war at present outside South Africa, who are burghers, will, on duly de­ claring their acceptance of the position of subjects to his majesty, be brought back to their homes as soon as means of transportation can be provided and means of subsist­ ence assured. “Third—The burghers so return­ ing will not be deprived of their personal liberty or property. - “Fourth—No proceeding, civil or criminal, will be taken against any burghers surrendering or returning for any acts in connection with tho prosecution of the war. The benefits of this clause do not extend to cer­ tain acts contrary to the usages of warfare which had been extended by the commander-in-ehief to the Boer generals, and who shall be tried by court-martial after the close of hos­ tilities. “ Fifth—The Dutch language will be taught in the public schools of the Transvaal and Oraugo River Colony, where parents desire it, and will be allowed in the courts of law for the better and more effectual ad­ ministration of justice. “Sixth—Possession of rifles will be allowed the Transvaal and Orange River Colony, to persons requiring them -for their protection, on taking out a license according to law. “Seventh—The military adminis­ tration o f the Transvaal and Orange River colonies will, at the earliest possible date, be succeeded by a civil government, and, as soon as circum­ stances permit, representative insti­ tutions leading up to self-govern­ ment will be introduced. In addition, there is to bo no tax on the Transvaal to pay the cost of the war. The sum of £3,000,000 is to be provided for restocking the Boor farms. Rebels are liable to trial, according to the colony to which they belong. ‘ A b o u t July First. The local land office has received no definite advises as to when the new Great Falls, office will be opened, but it is expected to be opened about the first of next month. This is con­ firmed by the following from the Gieat' Falls Tribune. “Register J* M. Burlingame and Receiver C. H. Benton of tho Great | Falls land office have not yet been officially advised at what date the of­ fice will bo opened, but have received an intimation, through semi-official channels, that the opening will be July 1, if the necessary books are ready at that' time. They aro pre­ pared to enter upon the discharge of their duties at any time, and are await: ing formal notice. As heretofore stated, the office will be in one o f the rooms on the. ground floor of the First National building.. That location has been recommended by those who have D ied In Bed A fter, A ll. New York, June2.-Absolom Raguo Brainbridge, who was at one time un­ der sentence for the assistance he waB charged with having given John Wilkes Booth, while the latter was making his escape after assassinating President Lincoln, is dead at his home in this city. MrBainbridgewas born in Virginia in 1845. He entered the confederate army under Colonel Morgan when he was sixteen years of age, and at the close of the war held the rank o f lieu­ tenant. When Colonel Morgan’scom- mand was dispersed Bainbridge and a cousin were on their way home when they met Booth, whom they unwitting­ ly assisted to cross the river. The young lieutenant and his cousin were arrested and sentenced to death, but later released. C u r r y T r ied. Knoxville, T6nn., June 3.—Chas. Johnson, alias Harvey Logan, alias Kid Curry, the alleged Montana train robber, was today fined and sentenced to six months’, imprisonment on two minor charges, but on throe major ones, shooting two 'policemen and bringingstolen property into the state counts, wore taken over to tbo Septem­ ber term o f court. The attorney gen­ eral tried to enter a nolle prosequi in the cases so that United States Mar­ shal Austin and his deputies, who were present in the crowded court room, could arrest the prisoner on United States warrants, but the-judge refused to entertain the motion. Logan is believed to have participated in tho Groat Northern train robbery in which §40,000 was secured. An E c o n o m ical King. King Vicror Emmanuel’s Italian subjects are beginning to call him stingy. Tho royal chef’s salary o f $100 a month has been cut to $60. The contractor who caters for the royal bousohold of 450 persons gets only 50 cents per person a day, although ho is expected to provide three meals. The Dowager Queen Margherita pays nearly ono dollar a porson to feed 112 members o f her household. Eighty horsos have been sold from the royal stables in the Inst two months, and. 3G0 employes and servants have been dismissed, most o f them without pen­ sion. It is rumored that the king, fearing that rapidly developing social­ ism may upset his throne, is putting aside money for a rainy day. M ission M a y Be S u c c e s s f u l . London, May 30.—Cabling from Rome, the correspondent of the Daily Chronicle says the Taft mission to Romo has every prospect of success. The Vatican is willing to allow the monasteries and convents in the Philippines to bo under civil law and it will permit expropriation of their property. The American government says the correspondent, will authorize the creation of new dioceses in the Philippines, to be under American bishops only. It C o s ts Som ething-. M a y Be A n o t h e r P o m p e ii. Edgar Cox, a miner, has reached Redding, Cal., after a hard trip across the country from Lassen Buttes, 40 miles oast o f that place, bringing a story of strange discoveries of even deeper interest than the great crater and the springs and caves of the lava fields. The discoveries aro bones and implements denoting a people and a state of civilization existing there many centuries ago. It is be lieved a second Pompeii may be hid­ den beneath the lava and ingenous rock which was belched out in a far remote period from the mouth of the grim old crater. A party of timber surveyors inves­ tigating their way over the rough country south of Noolts Pass, found within four feet of the surface human bones half petrified. They evidently had lain at much greater depth, but erosion had thinned the crust of earth above them. The skeletons woro in various postures, as though death had come suddenly upon thorn, strik­ ing them down as thoy wore engaged in the daily routine of lifo. Next tho searchers came upon rude spoons and bowls. Thoy woro apparently of stone, but they boro no resoinblanco to tho Indian relics which the traveler sees often in that region. Instru­ ments which perhaps were used as hammers and chisels wero fouud. Some of the stone articles wero of such design that thoy could not be classified at all. The surveyors be­ came convince that thoy had chanced upon relics of a raco that antedutod the known Indians so far as to have little in common with them. It was the conviction of tho party that the ruins of a settlement or city, possibly engulfed with its inhabi­ tants by an eruption of tho long ex­ tinct volcano, lie beneath the lava and can bo reached with comparative ease from certain points where little lava remains. S o m e G r e a t ’ Q u a k e s . It is well to remember that pros­ perity costs something. AH good things do. If this were not true there would be no real prosperity. The only and proper contention is that the benefits of prosperity be fairly, justly and equitably distribut­ ed. Tho first benefit of prosperity is increased opportunities for em­ ployment. Then follows an adjust­ ment o f conditions. These require time, thought and effort. Each muat contribute something to the cause of prosperity. With steady employ­ ment and increased wages must come a better demand for the things which one must buy and consequently an advance in price. If the farmer gets more for products he must expect to pay more for the things which be he buys. One can not hope to sell on a constantly increasing market and buy on a falling.. one. _ This was the fallacy which led ¿to .the hard times o f tho early nineties. One such experiment should!tie? enough ior-.UiiMi :geewetioe;'H^SS Besides the Charleston enrthquako of i88G, in which 41 liyos wero lost and about §5,000,000 worth of prop­ erty was lost, there have been two other notable earthquakes in tho United States within historic times— one neur the head of tho Mississippi delta in 1811-12, and one in the Inyo valley, Cal., in 1872. The former, known as the New Madrid earthquake, was remarkable for the length of time which its phe­ nomena covered. There woro soveral shocks at intervals for seyeral months and the whole series of shocks lasted about two years. The country was sparsely sottled and no scientific records of tho dis­ turbance were made, but it is related that the alluvial land of the rivor bottoms was traversed by visible waves, which rocked tho trees to and fro and uprooted many. Huge fis­ sures were opened, and lakes were drained by the oscape of their waters into them. The largest sunken aroa is said to havo been GO or 80 miles long and half as btoad. The Inyo valley earthquake was caused by a renewed movement along the great fault plain at the eastern base of the Sisrra Nevada. The chiof shock lastad only a few minutes, but others of I obs violence continued for two or three months. A tremendous fissure waB formed along the base of the mountain raDge for about 40 miles. The land west of the fissure rose and the land east of ti.fell, several feet. Owens riyer was temporarily swal­ lowed up. In tbo village of Inyo all the houses were thrown down, and one-tenth of the inhabitants were killed. the priÿil«k« 9 l T o T h e P u b lic. Hirshberg Brothers Bankers, Choteau, Montana.
