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 CASCADE BANK o f Great Trails, Mont. Helena, Nov. 10.—“ 1 shall follow President Roosevelt’s policy.” Joseph M. DixoD, elected congressman from the State o f Montana, announces this as his attitude ou national questions in the coming congress. “ I have been in thorough sympathy with every act Theodore Roosevelt has performed since ho took the presi- dent’slchair,” said Mr. Dixon. “ I have abundant faith in him for the future. 1 shall adhere to his policy through my term. That is all l can say as to what 1 shall do in congress. And as to plans, I have formed noue as yet. I haven’t had the time. “ I want to sav a word to the re­ publicans who control the next legis­ lature. Chairman Lindsay of the republican state central committee spoke for a thirty-days session and for the passing of only necessary legislation. Dr. C. B. Miller followed with a statement that he would favor retrenchment. Both of these t hings I want to emphasize. If I were a member o f this next legislature I should vote and work for tlieilii . “ The republican members of the legislature which is about to meet haye much power in their hands so far as the future of the party is con­ cerned: They should exercise it to the ends I have mentioned. In thirty days they can pass all necesseiry legis­ lation. I believo that only routine legislation is necessary at this coming session. And the taxpayers of this state will appreciate such action. “ As to retrenchment. The legis­ lature of two years ago employed twice as many clerks as it needed. It payed these $5 a day each. Any number of thoroughly com­ petent stenographers can bo gotten for $75 a month. Mauy in this state are anxious to work at that salary. The legislature will act wisely and to the interests of the people if it re­ duces the number of clerks and pays each that salary. “ I say these things because.Twould, as I said, work and vote for them were. I a member of that legislature. 1 believe that if tbs republicans in that body do these things they will, as Chairman Lindsey Baid, gain the confidence of the voters for tneir party and will materially add to the re­ publican majority which Montana is going to turn out in 1906. “I think the people of Montana vot­ ed normally last Tuesday for the first time since 1892. The lack of boodle and gradual kuowlodge of the effects of boodle which the people have gainod during the past few years is responsible for that vote. “ Personally I fell prouder of the majority whicli Missoula county gave me than I do of any phase of the entire violory. That county .went 500 democratic two years ago, Lt gave me 1,100 majority this year. This, coming as it did from my neigh­ bors, is a source of great pride to me. “ I met Congressman Charles E. Littlefield, of Maine, ou tho traiu as 1 came to Helena. He is on his way to his own state from California, where he has boen campaigning. Ho is one of those who are being mentioned as candidate for speaker of the next house you know. He felt pleased over Montana’s republican victory. “He talked with me of Montana politics iu a manner which showed me he was thoroughly informed on all the ins and outs of oqr situation. He had clearly studied the affairs politi­ cal of this'state during the past few years. Ho spoke of the status of both parties as though he were a resident of the state instead of living away east.

These Indians, it is understood, wore deported from Canada, and being constantly driyen from that side over iuto the United States, they,havo been a menaco to this stale for several years and tho property and health of our citizens aro jeopardized. The Crees were tukeu back to Canada by tho United States troops a few years ago, but im­ mediately returned, and wo can find no way of getting rid of them with­ out assistance from your department. Sufficient evidence has beeucolloctod to convince us that the Canadian au­ thorities have forced those Indians back iuto tho United States contin­ ually ever since that^timo. Carter Is-on Top. Pearson—Farr. The following petition, prepared by W. E. French, one o f the county com­ missioners, of Choteau county, and ad­ dressed to the secretary of the interior, is now being circulated extensively in northern Montana. We, the undersigned citizens of tbg state o f Morjtapq, do hereby petition your department that some action be taken toward the 'removing of the Cree Indians from this 6tato. The Charles II. Pearsou of Pondera aud Mrs. Fannie F. Farr of this city were united in marriage last oveuing In­ justice Sufford in his office iu tiie Phelps block. Mr. Pearson is ouo of the largo aud wealthy woolgrowers of tho northern part of the state, and Mrs. Farr has been a resident of Groat Falls for a number of yoars. Pro- riously. to coming to Montana she made her home in Chicago. A pleasant trip to the east had boen arranged by the couple to bo takeji after their wedding, but owing to the illness of one of her sons, Mrs. Pear­ son will be detained in the city for an indefinite period.—Groat Falls Tribuno. Will Shepherd Dead. William D. Shepherd, ±2 yoars of age, died at the Columbus hospital, iu this city, last night at 10:45 o’clock, from general collapse aftor an illness of about throe weeks, Mr. Shepherd was unmarried, and is survived by a brother, Manton Shepherd, deputy clerk aud recorder o f Cascade cou>- y, residing in this city, and by a sistor, Mother Clementina, at tho Visitation convent in St. Paul. The power of seuatorial jawbone is hold Co be illustrated in the victory of Tom Carter in Montana. His friends date the beginning of tho political landslide that terminated in a big Republican majority iu tho state last Tuesday from his all night speech in tho United States senate, by means of which the river and harbor hill was held up and went over two yoars ago. This speech, it is said, made tho ir­ rigation law possible by convincing the East that the noeds of the ^ roat inland states must bo considered if tho demands of tho const sections were to bo allowed. Be this as it may Carter is again on top, aud Montana is strongly Republican.—Portluud Orogonian. Hirshbenr Brothers Club Cafe Bankers, Choteau, Montana. ThiB is -no bluff.

We have recoivod a communication from Shelby which contains tho somo- what amusing information that Fer­ guson, jo t the Shelby Independent, on the day after election, swore out a warrrnt against Baldy Smith and had him putJuudorSnOO bonds to koop tho peace for six mont-hs. During tho recent campaign Ferglhrow consider­ able mud at Mr. Smith, and roundly abused him at every opportunity. Ho was brave thou,, knowing that Smith would say or do nothing to resent bis repeated insults until tho campaign endod. But the day after election, when Smith threatened to pull Ferg’a nose and mako him rotraet his vile insinuations tho cowurd hurries off to Justice Dawos’ court and haB Smith put under ponco bonds. It is really amusing to see this “ braYo\ demo cratic editor take to the bush as soon as trouble threatens. We solicit accounts and offer to the public the most liberal treat­ ment consistent with safe banking. OLIVER HEAD, Prop. * NEW RESTAURANT Mr. Shepherd was born in St. Louis in I860. In 1879 ho came west, locu- tiug at Fort Shaw, where for seven years he was associated with J. H. McKnigbt, then post trader at the fort. For a number of years he was interested with his brother, J. H. Shepherd, who died in the spring of 1901, in business at Cascado, and later was with Clark Bros., at Bynum. For tho past throe weeks Mr. Sbep herd had been a patient at the Columbus hospital. It was thought uutiljaet night that he wub improving in health, and his friends anticipated his complete recovery. At 9 o’clock last night ho nppoared to feol un­ usually well, aud ate heartily. About 9:30 tho nurse in attendance noticed a difference ¡a his appoarauco, and from that time he gradually grow weaker. Tho-end came peacefully. Tho funeral will take place from the residence of Manton Shepherd, on Fourth avenuo north. Tho tirno has not yet been named, and will not be determined until a response is re­ ceived from Mother Clementine, tho sister of the doceased at St. Paul, who was notified by wire of the death late last night.—Great Falls Tribuno.
