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.

As though the outside world had any legitimate business in our. coast shipping. • t- What really has been done in this. In the direct interest of our railroads and rail road-owned shipping, and in the interest of foreign ship-owners who for twenty years have sought to take from our coast shipping advanta ges given them by a law which has never been questioned for a century, the president has aimed a direct blow at our coast snipping and congress has approved the demand. If that is a good law or com mon sense, then the work of for tifying the canal should at once be stopped, for”by direct implication the United States has'no rights in the canal zone which the nations of the world are called upon to respect. Before President Wilson was elected he pictured the magnificent merchant marine which was under a Democratic administration, to restore our flag to all the oceans in its pristine loveliness, and with out resorting to bounties or sub sidies. His only act since relating to our shipping interests has been to bulldoze through congress a bill suggested by steamship and railroad monopolies to cripple our coast shipping. We suspect that he and his near friends are rubbing their hands and saying: “ Well that trouble is over.” We hardly think it is. If after the fourth of March, the house of representatives has a majority against him and his pol itics, when he begins to question how it happened, if some friend will say to him: “ One of the chief causes was your going back on your platform and at the be hest o f monopolies on both sides of the ocean, aimed a direct blow at legitimate and American shipp ing,” he will be telling him a di rect, if unpalatable truth. 9^ 4^Th è f ol 1 owi ng-articled is .copied -from the last issiie\. of • the Cut Bank Pioneer Pressé ' It is quite refreshing to note'the changé' in LOST—A bay mare, branded JM on left shoulder.

We publish this article at this time without comment on ‘our part, accepting the explana tion of the editor of the Pioneer Press as genuine and sincere, re ceiving it in the same spirit in „which apparently it has been giv en: \‘ tThe attack On the county board and so-called Choteau “ ring” that appeared in the last issue of the Tribune, following the lead of Patron Saint (Busey, caused a nttmber of Cut Bank citizens who attended a reception in honor of a Valier delegation here not long ago to speculate as-»to the reason for the radical change of feeling on the part of Publisher Rigney. At this meeting a local citizen cen sured the county board quite se verely for their indifference, as he viewed it, to this section of the county. Publisher Rigney fol lowed the speaker in question and assumed the role of apologist for the board, declaring that in a county the size of Teton the work of the board was most arduous and that harsh or captious crit. cism was unwarranted; “ It occurs to the Pioneer Press editor that the criticism indulged in by our contemporary down the street is in bad grace at this time. Criticism of the ’Choteau ring, will hurt no one, for the.very good reason that such a ‘ ring’ is prob ably more mythical than real. It is always good play and makes an appeal to the groundlings to talk ‘ring’ and ‘machine’ on the eve of election, and county seat towns are always supposed to harbor a multitude of c-r-n-e-l-l and malig nant political villians. “ This writer has frankly criti cised the county commissioners onf a number of occasions for seeming indifference to the wants of this part of the county. Of late the board has shown a disposition to treat us well; They have arranged for a bridge over the Cut Bank and will meet with ns in a few days to discuss other public im provements in this north country. It seems ill-timed and in rather poor grace to attack them in view of their seeming desire to give us what we justly desire from hence forth. We do not believe such criticism voices local sentiment at this time.” Health Board Report Helena, June 20.—There were 847 births and 370 deaths in Mon tana last month, according to the monthly repors of the state board of health.
