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 was known only to the members of the eourt.and court officers, as well as to the governor, attorney general and secretary of state, that the court contemplated adopting the custom of wearing silken gowns upon the bench as soon as the court moved into its new quarters. The gowns that the court wears are of the finest quality of black silk. They were made in Washington by a woman who makes the gowns for the supreme court of the United States aud are made exactly like those worn by the members of that tribunal.

Cardinal Steinhubor, a Jesuit opposes them. After the completion of the negotiations, an acute conflict is expected between the , Vatican officials’ and the Filipino religious orders regarding the disposition of the money which the United States will pay for the islands. The Vatican considers that the money ought to be given to the propaganda or society of cardinals having the care and over­ sight of foreign missions. C o m m a n d s A G r e a t F l e e t .

The tract of the agency land in Gregory county, South Dakota, at the terminus of the new line, will no,t he opened by the ‘government for homesteads until the Elkhorn haB its line completed to Bonesteel and is rea ly to carry the passenger business connected with the rush. The section to be opened aggregates 416,000 acres, or 2,600 free homes of ICO acres each. The chance system will be UBed and Bone- steel w ill bq the location of the draw­ ing, The Elkhorn read expects to make a million dollars out o f'Ib is opening, enough to - cover one half the expense, o f its new extension from Verdigris to tbe V scene. \\As near as -Adam Black.arrived in Butte Sat­ urday from Tacoma aud reported his section of the country in a state o f un­ easiness on \account of the possibility of trouble from Mount Rainier, a lofty peak about 50 miles from Tacoma; He says, that- for several days “ steam has been issuing from the two craters on tho apex of the mountain, and that while nothing of a more serious na­ ture has happened prior to the time he left, the people living in the vicin­ ity of the mountain wore quite appre­ hensive as to results. They fear that the old peak may bo in sympathy with Mount Pelee and is forewarning set­ tlors of a blow out which it intends to have in the near future. “ Several persons in Tacoma, from which place tho mountain can be plainly seen, saw tho steam coming from tho apex of tho peak,” said Mr. Black, “ and they were not mistaken about it. Coi. Frank Terry of the Payallup Indian reserve is one of the men in that section who saw tho steam coming- from tho mountain. He was at Point Defiance with a num­ ber of friends the day it began and they all 6aw it. His attention was called to the mountain about 2:30 o’clock in the afternoon, and he said he had watched it for a long time. He thought he saw two columns of steam rising from' the peak. One column came from tho highest apex, and tho other from a little to the north-east, where it is known the second or lower crater is located. There are two distinct white columns of mist rising in the air and dissolv­ ing like steam. When the colonel returimd to the^reservation several of the Indians who had soen the steam told him about the section of the cra­ ters. “ Thore is no doubt in my mind”, continued Mr. Black, “ that the old mountain is steamiryj up.and getting ready for business.” H e O b j e c t e d to th e J u d g e . Manila, June 15.— When the crimi­ nal suit brought by Benito Logarta, a Filipino member of tho civil com­ mission, against the newspaper, Free­ dom, for having published a libelous article from another nowspaper of Manila, came up for hearing last week, counsel, for I he defense ob­ jected to Judgo Rhode, before whom tlio case, was to be tried.' on tho grounds that when Rhode was a private attorney he addressed inap­ propriate epithets to tho editor of tho popor and said ho would not rest until he had landod him in prison. Judgo Rhodo admitted having mado this statement, but said ho thought he was capable o f trying the case fairly. S m o k e l e s s 'C o a l . Geo. M. Dallas, of Kentucky, has an invention that ought to bring him fame and fortune. Dallas claims to have invented nothing less than smokeless coal. For ten years he has been laboring to eradicate the Bmoke nuisance, and ho says he has at last discovered a formula by which soft coal, compounded with chemicals and oil, can be manufactured that will burn without smoko or smell. Tho formula ia being kopt a secret for tho present, but Mr. Dallas says there is no lime, pitch 0 ? tar used id the man­ ufacture. Tbo ashes of this coal strongly resembles ordinary sand, and the tantalizing clinker is also over­ come. Mr. Dallas claims that the coal, which is produced in tho shape of a cake similar to a bar of soap, can be manufactured and placed on the market in competition withthecheap- est of soft' coal. A ' company has been organized by Kansas City and Chicago men, who are how figuring on the installing o f a plant in Chicago with a hundred tons’ ^capacity daily, and it is expected that the article will be placed on the market within [four weeks. - -!.

Three riewjtowns a^e DQWir.buildiag in: Boyd *:county NebriaaVreeult ofthe newlmebemg Washington, June 16.—Chief H y - drographer Newell, of tho geographi­ cal survev, will spond a portion of the summer in the west examining the proposed sites for storage reser­ voirs. H o says it is highly important that the work undertaken by tho gov­ ernment under the new irrigation law should be such as will insure the success of the completed projects aud the department wishes to make a judicious solectiou of tboso sites on which tho first systems are to bo con­ structed. It may bo a year or more before the final surveys can bo made, but the department intends to pro­ ceed with caution and leave no loop hole through whioh tho opponents of the government aid in reclamation can later attack the bill recently passed and have any ground for de- manding its repeal. Much will de- pond upon the recommendations of Mr. Newoll as to which sites will be choson by tho department. Brothers Bankers, Choteau, „ Montana.

Redding, Cal., Juno 15.— A lone bandit held up a saloon at Red Bluff this morning. W h ile the bartender was serving four men playing poker with drinks, a man entered tho saloon. He had a gun under his arm and it was presumed ho came for beer; As be neared the table he whipped out a long revolver and commanded all present to hold up their hands. Ho took $200 laying on tho table and backed out. A n o t h e r L o t t e r y . There will bo another- wholesale lottery conducted under tho manage­ ment of the federal government with valuable homesteads as the prize. There will be no blanks in tho draw­ ing although somo of tho prizes will bo moredosirablo than olhors. About 300,000 acres of land of the Roftebu'l Indians in South Dukota wore recent­ ly purchased by act of congress, tbo law providing that tho territory should be prepared for settlement by tbe Department of tbo Interior. Sec­ retary Hitchcock in making arrange­ ments to open up this land, has de­ cided to follow the plan that was fol­ lowed so successfully a year ago in connection with Kiowa and Camancho lands in Indian Territory. As soon as the land has been surveyed aud divided'into homesteads announce­ ment will be made of the conditiou governing the awarding of lots. C O A L Leave orders at telephone office. Hollo, No. 42.
