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.

After having read last week’s Mon- tanian and Chronicle it is very ovideut that the Great Galls Tribune has changed its opinion of the Moutaua Stock Association and the people of Teton county, as will be seen by tho following: A well-informed and representative citizen of Teton county who is in the city denies that there is auy such feeling against the stock association in that county that it is difficult to secure conviction of a cattle thief whose guilt is proved, but be st that the association’s methods Canvass of State’s Vote. Hirshbers: Helena, Dec. 2!—Yesterday’s can­ vass of the return in tho election, by the state board of cauvassors, showed. I hat tho total yoto cast for associate justice of tho supreme court was 55,- 3G0, while the total vote for represen­ tative iu congress was nearly 2,000 short oi this number—the exact lig ures being 53,324. ■ Tho canvassing ¿board was busy with die returns for several hours yesterday, and its work could not bo com plot ed because of the fact that the returns ou tho vote for and against the constitutional amendment changing tho terms of county com­ missioners from four to six yours had not been sent- in by the ciork-s of four of the counties, the missing returns being those for Cascade, Madison, Sdvor Bow aud Valley.
