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.

On Monday the Teton Exchange will be again opened to the public, this time under the able manage ment of Dave Able. In our mention of court matters last week we neglected to speak of the able manner in which the attor neys for the defence handled their cases. Few men could have done as well for their clients as did Messrs. Bair and Bishoo. That Parker and Johnson did not go free can in no way be attributed to tlieir legal advisors, nor did their conviction add to the renown of the prosecution. Pro and con, each did his duty and did it well. The people of this vicinity were painfully surprised when, onTues day last, Under Sheriff Steele arrested and placed in jail Herbert Snyder and Wm. Cook, twoyoutig men who have always borne good reputations in the community. They were arrested for killing cattle, on the wtiength of a dis closure made by one James Dolan, who says lie saw the killing and assisted them to secrete the offal. On Wednesday they were up be fore Justice Beaupre who, the state ot being ready fora hearing, held Snyder to bail in the sum of and Cook $500. The bail was quickly furnished and the boys turned loose until Saturday, Apiil 7th. The accusation of Do lan is not generally believed to he true. Attorney Bair has tiecn engaged for the defense. There will be a literary enter tainment at the Dupuyer school house next Thursday evening, April 5th. Dr. Drake, of this place, will render some of his in imitable recitations on that occa sion. Sheriff Hamilton escorted two of Teton county’s convicts, Hack- lin andHafron, to Deer Lodge on Saturdry last. Four more are yet here, Morris, Parker, Johnson and Fenty. Two of these will go forward next week. Uncle Jake Smith says he has been recognized by the democracy at last. He is a tailor by trade and the other day he was offered the position of tailor to the county. Prescott, of Helena, in the sheep business with (. harles McDonald, came in on the couch Monday to look over his interests. Pa pels have been forwarded from Washington looking toward the granting of post office* at Bur ton’s, Freeze-Out and upper Teton. The postoffice at Uohare has been discontinued. Tho genial Tom Magee resigned and no one could be found to take the place. Under Sheriff Steele returned from Helena Monday, bringing with him Frank Sweeney under arrest as an accomplice with Sny der and Cook. J. E.
