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.

Miller The democratic? convention for the purpose of placing a county ticket iu nomination met in the court room iu Choteau last Tuesday afternoon. Only about one half the delegates entitled to seats were present and little or no enthusiasm was displayed. The convention was called to order by the chairman, J. E. Erickson, and the secretary read the minutes of the previous convention, and they were approved. On motion of Thos. . W. Lett, a committee of three, on '-resolutions was appointed by the chair as follows: Thos. W . 3 Lett, J. F. Ferguson and J.'F. Burd. O b motion of J. E. Burke a com mittee on Order o f Business was ap pointed by the chair as follows: J. E. Burke, A. 0. Longmuirv and C. H. Jefferson. The convention then adjourned to 4 p. m. to allow the committees time to report and also for the purpose of caucusing on the candidates for the various offices. In the caucus most of the work of the convention was mapped out and a full ticket—including three county commissioners—was selected, the commissioners being Dan Sullivan of Shelby, Henry Radcliffe of Saypo and Ed Dennis of -Choteau. Mr. Sullivan, however, refused to run on a ticket with two other farmers and it was impossible for the caucus to agree upon his successor. Upon reassembling at five o’clock the committee on order of business and also on platform reported and their reports were aocepted. The platform adopted was as follows: “ We the democrats of Teton county in convention assembled roiterato our faith in the soundness of democratic prinoiplesas enumerated in the Kan sas City platform. We indorse the platform adopted by the state democratic convention at Bozeman on (he 23rd dav of Septem ber, 1902, together with all the prin ciples and recommendations therein contained. We endorse the present state administration and commend the action taken by the board of equalization to raise the valuation of the railroad* so as tp cause them to pay * more equitable portion of the taxes pf the state. We endorse the work accomplished by our senators, the Honorable W. A. Clark and the Honorable Paris Gibson and the public services ren dered by them. We believe the presentvroad law is not suited for the needs of our state and especially Teton county and pledge our representatives in the next legislative assembly to propose and endeavor to have enacted a road law suited to the rpada of our section. W ? Pledse 9 UT nominees if elected to a faithful, honest and economical administration of the affairs of Teton county, and we denounce the extrav- gant and unbusinesslike methods as practiced by the republican office holders in Teton county in the ex penditure of the taxpayers money, and more especially present bqard of county poflpipssioaeirs who^have shown their utter disregard for the welfare of Teton county. We point with pride to the record made by the democratic minority in congress in forcing the majority to enact a national irrigqtiqn law and pfpdge oqr pandidafes fpr the legisla ture tp dp alf jn their power to ««cure the enactment of moasures for state aid in the storage of surplus waters! We hereby solicit the support of all citizens, regardless of party, who are in sympathy with the ah,o,ve tionec} platform and \declarations herein contained .” 1 Chas. W. Krofft then placed the name of S. F. Ralston Jr. in nomina tion for state eepatof. The rules WUP suspended and Mr. Ralston was declared the nominee by unanimous vote. No applause whatever greoled the announcement J. F. Ferguson- then nominated J, entered the hall, but still there was no applause. The convention was evidently not enthusiastic over their nominees for the state legislature and well they might be, because against such men as M. Connelly and C. J. Kinna the republican nominees, Ralston and Wilcox do not stand a ghost of a show of winning out. J. H. Boucher, the delegate from Columbia Falls, Flathead county, then placed C. W. Taylor in nomina tion for sheriff of Teton county. Mr. Boucher has been prospecting for natural gas for several years, and he seems to have found an unlimited supply judging from the way he “ ran off at the face.” His speech (?) brought fort£ a few ripples of ap plause, and Mr. Taylor was declared tho nominee for sheriff by acclama tion. F. P. McDermott then movod that tho nomination for treasurer be passed,-but amid a stillness that was doalhlike, J. N. Ralston moved to amend by nominating James Kellogg for treasurer and the amendment was carried. The following nominations were then made by unanimous vote: Clerk & Recorder—T P Aspling County Attorney—J E Erickson Assessor—James Armstrong Suryeyor—Walter Mathews Supt of Schools—Mrs Nellie Brown Pub Administrator—0 Wagnild Coroner—Dr. W B Wine The* conyention then adjourned to 8 p. m. The convention again reassembled at 8 p. m., but their differences on the nominations for county commission ers had not been patched up and only two wore placed in nomination—Ed Dennis for Choteau and Henry Rad- cliff for Saypo. The third nominee was passed up to the central com mittee. A county central committee was then named as follows: Choteau—Dr T Brooks, chairman Choteau—S H Garvin, treasurer Raymond—A O Longmuir, socy Lowry—W K Flowerree, Bynum—J N Ralston St Marys—Parley Stark Belleyiew—C H Jefferson Dupuyer—W D Hagen Burton—E Reckdahl Sweet Grass—R Crook ford Shelby—J F Hughes Cut Bank—A E Allison Collins—Ben Feist North Fork—J B Kellogg Robaro—Myron Burd Pondera—B J Mathew Candidates for township offioers were then named as follows. Justice of Peace, Choteau township, Nat Collins and Harry Hayme# Justice of Peace, Dupuyer town ship, T W Lett The following resolution was then presented by J H Boucher and the same was adopted: “ Resolved, That the Shelby Inde pendent be declared the official paper of the democratic party of Teton county.” Feeling ashamed, no.doqbt, of their days’ wPjli the convention adjoprnnd sipe die, These are said to be the largest cars in service on any road. Tho now tourist sleepers have many minor improyemonts over those in service three years ago, and the new first class sleepers have evory modern contrivance for rendering traveling comfortable. They aro finished iu mahogany, with an avoidance of elaborate ornamentation. Ceilings and cabinet work aro plain almost to severity, but with an appearance of dignified luxury which appeals to experienced travelers. Pines o f Montana. Mr. G. E. Tower, of the'buroau of forestry, is stopping at the Bozeman, says the Chronicle. Mr. Tower is here to make ascieutificinvestigation into the nature and habits of the pine that grows here, especially the white pino that is commonly known as the lodge-polo pine. His work will prob ably keop him hero until tho 1 st of November, and perhaps later if th« weather should continue good. Ho has been spending a good deal of his time out near tho Cooper tie camp He may also do some other work in connection with tho forestry depart ment while ho is here. To a Chron icle reporter Mr. Tower talked inter estingly of the various forost trees and their peculiarities. It is his opinion that many hardwood forest trees that do not grow in this section might bo easily acclimated, especially if they were raised from the seed. This is afield of experiment that has not been much worked in this section so far. Mr. Towor slates that tho people of tho western slates, and in deed everywhere, aro rapidly coming to see the utility aud benefit of forest reservations, and the opposition to those reservations that wnB iu its in ception largely born of ignorance of the purposes and effects of such reservations is now about ono.

The new equipment includes baggage, m«\l and e^presn cars, day poaches and tourist sleepers. A few years ago the company made a radical departure from the old idea of constructing d*W conches.
