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 W a y to Montana New York, June 2.—Miss Mar­ jorie Dorman, secretary of the wage earners’ Anti-Suffrage league who left on Sunday for Montana to take part in the campaign against votes for women there this summer, will find plenty of opposition from eastern suffragists who plan to start this week on her trail. Miss Ida Craft, who won the title of “ Colonel” in the army o f Miss (General) Rosalie Jones on hikes to Albany and Washington, will start for Mon­ tana on Saturday. Miss Jones started for the west last week, but planned to stop at several cities on the way. Miss Dorman is to be joined later by Miss Clara Markson and Miss Minnie Bronson for a speech making campaign through Mon­ tana, Land Restored Register Binnard and Receiver Freeman of the Helena land office have been advised o f the restora­ tion of a small tract of land, with­ drawn in 1903 on account of the Sun Rivey project. It will be open to settlement on July 20 and to entry and filing on August 19.

Hereafter defendants in the federal courts in Montana, upon whom penitentiary sentences are imposed, will be taker, to Mc­ Neill’s island,22 miles From Seattle instead of to Leavenworth prison in Kansas. Orders to this effect have «been received from the de­ partment of justice by Deputy Marshall McKay. The change is made, it is understood, because of the crowded condition of Leaven­ worth prison. Removal of the office of collec­ tor of internal revenue from Salt Lake to Helena has been author­ ized in Washington, to be made in August, according to Martin Dur- kan of Great Falls, deputy collec­ tor of income tax, who is here to­ day. Quarters will be taken in the assay office building. According to Mr. Durkan, one of the chief arguments advanced for the re­ moval of the office was furnishec by the revenue received, the figures showing that last year Montana furnished as much as both Utah »nd Idaho combined. A tidy little income tax will be received by the state from the estate of A. N. Brady of New ^Tork, who left 12,500 shares of Anaconda stock, valued at $34 a share, a total of $421,600. The income tax Montana collects will be not less than $4.216 and per­ haps as much as $20,000 depend ing upon the relationship to Mr. Brady of the beneficiary. Deer Lodge will get 40 per cent of the tax and the state 60 per ceut. There were 795 births in Mon­ tana in April and 453 deaths, ac- coi ig to the monthly report of the. .ate board of Health. „Hel­ ena had 20 deaths and ' l ’o'births.

Swind- lehurst of Livingston. T h e change is effective today, and the Journal will hereafter be demo­ cratic. The Journal is an evening paper and has been published by the Gazette Printing company. Helena, June 2.—Montana may return to the old convention system of selecting its candidates and there may be no initiative measures submitted at *the fall election, if the “ dope” of M. Mc- Cusker, secretary of the Peoples’ Power league is correct. He states he has received information that Attorney General D. M. Kelly will shortly render an opin­ ion bolding the iniative and refer­ endum amendment to the consti­ tution to be invalid, because in its adoption provisions of section nine of article 19 of the constitution were not observed, in that the amendment was not advertised three months, and whereas two should have been submitted, they were incorporated into one. “ No request has been made to me for an opinion,” said Attorney General Kelly when asked in re­ gard to the matter. It is rumored that one of the chief reasons why the matter may be brought up is because of the OUR COUNTY EXCHANGES Mr. Everette White of Augusta passed through here with a crew consisting of six riders and camp wagon, in charge of about 6U0 head of Texas steers belonging to Burke Bros., of Helena. The cattle were being taken to the Black foot reservation where the\ will be ranged. - Bynum News.

Miss Gilman, one of the teach­ ers in the high school, left Tues- dey morning for a short visit at Great Falls. We understand she will return to Choteau in a few days and will spend the summer at the Geo. Miller ranch. threats that if the Kelly boxing bill is repealed at the fall election, the initiative and referendum amendment will be tested in the courts If then held invalid, all the expense of submitting the compensation act, the farm loan, the general license tax, and the consolidation bill-—providing suf­ ficient signatures are obtained— and the Kiiey reference bill will be wasted. Orders for Encampment Company M., X. (î. M., has re­ ceived orders to attend the an­ nual encampment of the National Guard this year at Fort Wright Reservation which is located about four miles from Spokane, Washington. The camp will commence on July 24th and end on the 31st. Regular troops from i-’ort Wright will leave their quarters and go into camp with the militia of the states of Washing­ ton. Oregon, Idaho and Montana. Company M. will entrain on July 22nd in order to be in camp on tary maneuvers which combined with the scenic beauty of the country and its nearness to Spo­ kane insures the militia boys a good time while on the encamp­ ment. Captain Verge is now making a canvas of the company to ascertain how many can go. There are a number of new appli­ cations in to join so that Company M. should be able to .attend in full strength. Company M. will have one distinction that no other organization will have and that is a band. The Choteau band are all members of the militia com­ pany. It is planned to add con­ siderable instrumentation to the band before the encampment so that the band will make a credit­ able showing while on the trip. The fact that the Great Falls bnosters pronounced the Choteau band as the best one they heard on their trip is pretty good evi­ dence that Choteau will receive some good advertising from this trip. There are a few' vacancies in company M.nnd if any young linen of good standing wish to join the Company in time to take in the encampment they should report at the drill hall not later than next Tuesday evening at 8 p. m. From now on until the encamp­ ment every member of Company M. will be expected to attend t lie drills on every Tuesday even­ ing or else furnish the command­ ing officer with sufficient excuse for not doing so.

The Choteau flour mill has been leased by the McGlynn brothers, L . S., T. G. and M. M., who will at once resume operations at that institution, and “ Star °f Teton” flour will be made and placed on the market within a few days. The ■ McGlynn’s are experienced mil­ lers, and, as the plant is equippec with first-class machinery it is only reasonable to expect that a high grade of flour will soon be placed on the market. The people of Choteau and surround­ ing country should patronize the mill to the exclusion of all others, as the successful running of the flour mill in this city means a great deal to the community. Boost for “ Star of Teton” flour. Dune Stewart passed through town yesterday on his way home from a short business trip at Great Falls. The new fixtures for the Cho- teau Drug company, consisting of handsome show cases, counters, prescription case, etc., are being installed this week, and gives the store a very pleasing appearance. A new and up-to-date soda foun­ tain will also be added as soon as it arrives here, which will probably be in a day or two. The fixtures now in use will * be shipped to Bynum, for the drug store to be opened there in the near future. The committee having the Fourth of July celebration in charge have been circulating their subscription list among ‘ the busi­ nessmen in town during the past couple of days, and have already Secured several hundred dollars for that purpose.
