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.

Tacoma, Wash., June 22.—Few re ports havo been received today from tho sceno of the forost fires now rag ing in the Cascade mountains. A special from Hot Springs says all danger in this vicinity is now at an end, and the guests at the hotel are viewing the grand sight across tho canyon without tho slightest appre hension. The mammoth trees ablaze anon falling with a resounding crash and breaking other giants of the forest to the ground, is a pyrotechni- cal exhibition that outrivals any Fourth of July celebration. Tho wind has gone down and tbo fire is not spreading. Reports from Lester which was threatened last night state thac do danger is apprebonded now.

Tho long pending claim of Miss Helen P. Clarke, daughter of Malcolm Clarke, one o f the pioneers of- Mon tana, for depredations committed by Piegan Indians on her father’s ranch near Mitchell has at last boon allowed by tho court of claims. The amount was $2,490 out of $4,500 claimed. Malcolm Clarke was killed by the Indians in 1809, but tho claim was not filed until eight yoars ago. Largely through tho efforts of former Senator Thomas H. Carter, it has been pushed forward to a decision. Another claim of Miss Clarke’s for $13,000 is still pending. Miss Clarke is now a teacher in San Francisco and is in such circum stances that the money will bo a wel come addition to her resources. $2,800.90 The work iu various officos was in good shape, had oeon well dono and was up to dato. Tho treasurer by his watchfulness is collecting a $150 protested chock which has boon hold by tho county since Sopt. 1898. Ho is making an excellent record in li cense collections, although undor considerable difficulty. It is doubt ful if as much rovonuo is received from liconso collections at Cut Bank as there should. Owing to its dis tance from tho county seat the treas urer is handicapped, and I suggost that the commissioners doputizo a good man at Cut Bank to give special attention to collections thero, particu- arly saloon licenses. Tho collection of over $4,000 do- inquont taxes sinco Docombor 1st is creditable to Mr. Gordon and profit able to the county. I.take pleasure in acknowledging numerous courtesies extended during my examination. Respectfully submitted, W. H udnall , ritato Examiner. F o r e s t R e s e r v e s In M o n tana. Washington, June 21.—Tho bureau of forestry of tho geological survey today recommended to the secretary of the interior the creation in Mont, of forest reserves aggrogating threo and a quarter millions of acres. Tho largest reserve recommended includes about 00 townships, while some others are only one township in Bize. The preservation of the state’s lum ber supply, and the conservatism of water courses are tbo reasons given for tho additional reservations. The land office officials declines to give any information relative to the loca tion of the proposed reserves until therecommen lations are passed upon by tho secretary o f the. interior and land commissioner, after investiga tion o f titles, and it is. likely to be month or so before faction is taken. It is the impression that most of the recommendations, if not'- all, will be approved. /■-¿i? j i E \* '< - i l f c W o solicit accounts and offer to the public the most liberal treat ment consistent with safe banking.
