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 a very tamo affair, little or uo interest taken by the “ faithful” in attendance. Tho central committee had a meeting just previous to tho assembling of the covention and there the slate was fixed up and orders passed out that their recommendations must be con sidered as final and every deviation therefrom would result m dire punish ment. Consequently when the names of J. E. Erickson for temporary chairman and S. H. Garvin for tem porary secretary was presented by the chairman of tho central eommilte without a dissenting voto (hey elected to those positions. The chairman announced that the central committoe had decided who woro entitled to seats iu tho conven tion and handed the secretary the list to read. The list of delegates and alternates was as follows: CHOTEAU. woro J E Erickson, Ed Dennis, J F Burd, S H Garvin, TboB Brooks, F P McDermott, T J Moore, T A Smith, J E Burke, Emanuel Jacobs, Peter Trudo, T L Thompson, J H Devlin, Frank Truchot, Chus Klockler, B F Rock, Adolph Fellers, F E Moore, Geo Richards, G A Gorham, Wm Miller, Win Krofft DUPUYER.

The precincts of Raymond and North Fork did not take interest enough in the primaries to hold an election, but the central committee allowed them “representation” by placing the name o f A. O. Longmuir, a Choteau business man on tho list of delegates for Raymond, and the name of S. T. Christian for North Fork. The precinct of St. Marys was represented by a populietic dem ocrat wh<5 takes the train at Columbia Falls whenever he leaves home for his official duties. After having disposed of this busi ness someone proposed that tho tem porary organization be made per manent, which was done. On motion, C. W. Taylor, state committeeman, was named by an unanimous vote as delegate-at-large to represent Teton county at the state convention. % % lew, Crisp, Reliable Arriving daily and ment to its utmost at every W - . i # ’ ' t o ' t o rn - . t o - Fancy siJlcs for dress trimming, Basket suitings.

R e p o r t o f M. E. C o n f e r e n c e . Last year was the most pleasant year of my ministry. While every charge I have over served has treated me royally and its interests have been near to my heart, there ¡ b a large combination of circumstances that make this field of labor agreeable to me and that makes me glad that I find myself your pastor another year. Choteau and its surroundings are so beautiful in natural scenery, rich in naturo resources, and so promis ing for the future in various ways, that a man must be “ dead while he lives,” to travel over this country as I do and not be glad of life. The stock on a thousand hills, the grain and vegtables in the valleyB and on tho benches give evidence of the pros pority and increasing wealth of our citizens. Tho rivers of water, along which is a growth of trees and fertile valleys, out of which rivers are flow ing, irrigation ditches, some of them rivers themselves, coupled with the almost limitless opportunities af forded by the Rocky Mountains for the storage of water to make rich in production the thousands of acres of land surrounding us makes this region one of groat importance and rich promise. Christianity teaches that when God made this world he pronounced it good, very good, and ¿hat the world in which we are placed was not in tended as a snaro and an enemy to Grace but as a home to be enjoyed, a conditions for the\ higher discipline and development, therefore we are to get out of this life what God de signs we should, \we 'should look around us and bohold the goodness of God in giving us a home in such a rich, beautiful world with such pos srbiiities and pleasures. Paul says that “ every creature is good and nothing to be refused if received with thanksgiving.” The Christian spirit is to look upon none of the scenes and circumstances of the earth as an evil, but upon everything with thank fulness to the “ Giver of every good and perfect gift.” Now we find ourselves in_ one of the best portions of God’s world, a country that is just beginning to be settled and developed. We are here as a part of the church, the great organization and agency chosen, by our Master to assist man in his spirit ual life. The world is unity in diversity, and all things naturally intended for man’s spiritual development. The home, achools, govern ment, commerce, all things have one moral purpose, but history and experience proves thus, as good and valuable as all these things are the highest things are not attained in the absence of tho ohristian church, consequently to night we should feel the importance of the work we are here to consider. At present our church is weak- in members but its influence is greater perhaps than we know, but if this section of the conutry is to advance in its social life, if a belter moral public sentiment is to obtain, if the young men and women are to stand for the best type of individual life, establish christain homes, maintain high ideals of citizenship and busi ness relations, the church must in crease its membership and exert a far greater influence on public sen timent. I am persuaded that here we have a great opportunity and an encourag ing outlook, all genuine growth is at limes more or less gradual, it cornea by the individual being true to bis convictions and the community working together in carrying-out the convictions. One man has said that no one can estimate the silent influence of a church building alone in the com munity. It is plain to me that the presence of a beautiful and conven ient church will have greater power for good than one of leas beauty and fewer accomidationa. The proposed improvements that • we are making here will give this community one,of the best equipped churches in the country for the various departments of religious ^work.,- The people in general show their appieciation .of the enterprise by tho liberality with which they are giving. I believe that this year is to be the best in the history of the church. The people that live in the town are few as compared with those that live within a radius of 25 miles from it. The people in the town and »country are one community in all the interests of life. This summer I have spent a largo part of my time in the country and yet I have not not visited half the people, another summer I expect to be able to yisit every home, yet Choteau, being the business, political social and educational center, is of the greatest importance. A strong church here will influence the senti ment of this whole country. These country appointments are not able to maintain a ministor but are depend ent upon the one living m the town, also the town is depedent upon the country in the maintenance of the church as well as business, accord ingly thepeople in the country have been liberal in their contributions. It is my hope and prayer that this year will witness a large gathering of both young and old into the church visible and invisible. I know I have the support of all the good people on my work in this most important matter. F. L. Buzzell. Mr. D. P. Daugerty, well known throughout Mercer and Sumner counties, W.
