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.

The local stockholders o f the Mich­ igan & Montana Copper Mining & Smelting Co., owning mines in the ceded strip of the.Blackfeet reserva­ tion, have informally been tendeied a proposition that the. company should sell its interests for a sum not much lesB than half a million dollars. At that time, those to whom the matter had been submitted were o f the opin ion that the man making the offer did not have backing sufficient to carry his scheme through, and they did not believe that he would make a definite proposition: but the othor day they received from the secretary of the company the following notice: In the office of “The Michigan & Montana Copper Mining & Smelting Company.” Pursuant to written request of a majority of the directors of the above named company, and by order of the president, a special meeting of the board of directors of the said com­ pany is hereby called to convene in the company’s office above named on the 28th day of J uly, 1902, at the hour of 10 o’clock, and there con­ sider of and take action upon the re­ quest in writing which is Sled in this office, and signed by stockholders in said corporation who represent one- half and more of the capital stock, and of record on the books of tko company, asking that a meeting of the stockholders in said corporation be called by the directors to convene at this office at such time as the di­ rectors shall designate, and there and there and then consider and examine a proposition made and now awaiting answer, to contract for the purchase from the company of all its mining and mineral, and other properties of every kind and description (situate in Teton county, Montana) with an option of 90 days attached. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my baud and affixed the seal of said corporation this 16th day of July, 1902. . A. B. M c D onald , Secretary Board o f Directors. The principal mines owned by tho company are the Cracker, Josephine and Bull’s Head, each of which has been considerably developed. ’ Those interested dealino to state at present who desires to buy the properties, but the agent has satisfied them that his people are prepared to purchase and to develop the properties on a large scale. With T o n s Of D y n a m ite. C h a s e Is G iven Up. After 40 days of continual pursuit by men and bloodhounds, all organ ized effort to capture Harry Tracy, the escaped Oregon convict, has ended. No further posses will start after him. The pursuit of Tracy through Clark, Cowlitz, Lewis, Thurs ton, Fierce, Kil?ah, Snohomish and King counties has cost $10,000. The fact that Oregon declines to pay D. Waggoner of Chehalis the reward for Merrill’s body has done much toward the fiat drop of the Tracy hunt. G e n e r a l B r o o k e 's R e tirem e n t. A gpporaj Ofdpy hgs bepn prepared at the war department retiring Major General John R. Brooke, who reached the age limit of 64 years on Mon­ day, the 21at inst.

News reached the city of an im­ mense explosion of dynamite near Conradi More than a ton of the ex­ plosive was discharged at once tear­ ing an immense hole in the side of the rocky bluff and burling thousands of yards of dirt and rock into the Marias riyer. With the exception of the time when many hundreds of pounds of dynamite were set off in the con­ struction of the Neihart branch of the Montana Central this was tho great­ est explosion i hat has occurred in northern Mon-ana. The explosion took place on what is termed the Conrad revision, where tho new line of the Great Falls & Can­ ada makes a cutoff from the line now operated. J. A. Caughran has the subcontract for this portion of the new line. At this point the new grade will skirt along the sido of a hill where it was necessary to moye many thou­ sands of yards of rock and dirt. Twenty holes were drilled and in each of these an immense charge of dynamite was placed. AH tho holes wore connected by wires so that tho entire score could bo set off at the same time by electricity. When the blast went off the noise could bo beard for miles and the earth for a considerable distance from the scene trembled as if an earthquake had taken place. The blasts worked en­ tirely satisfactorily and the quantity of material movod and loosened is said to have exceeded all expectations. R e tirem e n t of Sm ith. President Roosevelt’s action in rop rimanding General Smith and remov­ ing him from the army for his “ kill or burn” order, is highly satisfactory to republicans and democrats alike and is only regretted in tho general’s circle of friend-s in tho army, whore without any desire to condono bis offense, the hope had been enter­ tained that his previous excellent record might bo found an excuse to dispose of the case with ft passing reprimand. Tho emphasis given to the presi­ dent’s disapproval, by tho compulsory retirement of General Smith, is a warning which will have its effect for some time to come. Republicans accept the disposition of tho case as a yiudication of the courso of thoir party iu congress at tho last session and as a vindication of the army. Thoy insist that the findings of the courtmartial demonstrate that in­ stances of torture and cruelty wore isolated and rare qnd that the army could not justly bo charged with bar­ barity. The president brings out this phase strongly in reviewing the case by commending the officeis for their excellent judgment in not being influenced by the orders of Goneral Smith and expressing regret that Major Waller had not sufficient dis- cretioirto iguore them.

The correspondent o f the Daily Chronicle Bays the pope is in­ tensely displeased with the way the commission of cardinal has conduct­ ed the negotiations with Judge Taft in regard to the friars in tho Pbilip- pines. “ I learn from an authoritative source,” says the correspondent, “.l hat besides annulling tho'> procedure of the cardinals, expressing his view that the .American demands were reason able, and signifying his readiness to C o u n ty Is N o t Liable. Bozeman, July 19.—Tho board of county commissioners lias just re­ ceived an opinio,n from ^ttorpey Gen­ eral Donpvaq confirming and concur­ ring in an opinion by County Attor­ ney G . D. Pease, as to whether the county is liable for bridges and for repairs of bridges which cross the canals and irrigating ditches. The opinion is to the effect thftt tho county is not liable for bridges over canals and ditches which were in ex- istance before a canal or irrigating ditch was constructed. This opinion means the gayiptcof a few t^ougapd dollars to the taxpayers of this county, as it has always been tho custom for the commissioners to repair the bridges, after they had been built by tho owney.

The weekly letter of Rosenbaum Bros.& Co., live stock commission merchants of Chicago, received yes- torday says: A dispatch from Baltic, Mont.,says: “Between 50 and CO loads will bo shipped from that point within tho week. As usual, the distinction of of being the earliest shipper of range cattlo from these parts falls to Dan­ iel Floworree, who has earned tho reputation of being the first on tbe Chicago market from Moutana, and establishing a range of quotations for the season, \The Flowerree cattlo aro in' fine condition, as usual. Tho first ship­ ment is due to loavo hero ou Wednes­ day with tho intention of being on Monday morning’s Chicago market. This trainload will probably comprise 25 carloads.” All reports from the range aro op­ timistic. Thero has been some hot weather lately and it has been ac­ companied by a cessation of rainfall, grass is curing and the Flowerroo shipments will bo followed by othors in rapid succession. The prospects for range cattle are fairly good. Land O ffice R e c e ipts. D. Long wbilo at State Land Register T. loosed a section of land Boulder Friday. Although tbe last fiscal year in tbo history of the stato land offico was a record breaker tbe receipts amount­ ing to $293,000, it is expected that the presont yoar will oven oclipso thst record. For sevon and ono-half months of tho prosont fiscal yoar the rocoipts omountod to S172.G93.74, which iB $40,659.95 larger than for the same poriod last year. If this record is maintained to tho end of the fiscal yeur, as seems very certain, there is little doubt of this year’s business far exceeding that of last yoar. Tho next loud sale will bo con­ ducted at Choteau July 29, when tbe state lands of Teton couuty will bo offered for sale or lease.

Washington, July 19.—Consul Gou oral Frauk Mason at Berlin has in formed tbe state department, in a ro- port dated Juno 18, that the code of regulation for carrying into offoct on Oct. 1 noxt the German meat inspect­ ion law has boon issued by tho im­ perial hoalth office. Undsr paragraph twolve of tho now law, fresh meats can be imported only in whole carcasses. Carcasses of cattlo and bogs, but not of calves, may be split in half, but tbe halves must bo left togethor and accompanied in all cases by tho head, heart, lungs and kidneys. Cow beef must have the udder, at­ tached and carcasses pf pork must ¡ncludp the tongue. Except hams, bacon and intestines, no piece of pickled, Bm okod or othorwise pro- served meat weighing I obb than four kilograms (8.8 pounds) may bo im ported into Germany. - The consul genet al says tl\nt when to all this is added tho prohibition undor paragraph twenty one of the laws on meats preserved with borax and boracicacid, or any of the several other antiseptic salts, it will be evi­ dent that the net effeot of the nows system will bo to diminish the supply more or less and to increase the cost of meats forconshmption in Germany.
