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.

Wilson, prominent attor ney of Great Falls and Billings, re publican candidate for governor in 1912, and who ran in the republican primary for the gubernatorial nom ination two years ago, being defeated by Governor Dixon, was found dead in his berth on the Northern Pacific train on its arrival in Billings, one morning recently. He had attended the annual banquet of the W estern Montana Fish and Game association, at Missoula, made a talk in his usual happy vein at the banquet, and went on board the train for his home in apparently the best of health. “I am a country lawyer,” he said in the speech that was to be his last, “and two years ago Joe Pope circu lated the report that at one time I had been a counsel for the Billings Brewing company. That report was absolutely true. Years ago, when we were younger and enjoyed sports that have now vanished, I have also rep resented many peoplo as a lawyer. I have defended poker players and col ored crap-shooters, and have been counsel for alleged bootleggers, and I claim that I have done more to pro tect the wild life in our state than any man in the room. “I have done more to protect wild life in eastern Montana than any commission ever in the state. I have hunted and fished for days at a time, but have never returned with a thing. I can scare more fish than any fish erman that ever waded a Btream, and when I go duck hunting all I get is a wet skin and a sore shoulder.” Mr. Wilson told of a hunting trip made some time ago with two tender- feet from Iowa, who wanted to kill a deer. Tlio party left Billings and traveled into a real game country, said Mr. Wilson. Although they wore equipped with about three guns apiece and at the same time game was plentiful, none of the party suc ceeded in slaying one single deer. “The game was played in the eve ning,\ declared Mr. Wilson, “and as I furnished most of the sport, it paid the men to stay out of the field.” He also read a poem at the banquet an excerpt from which is as follows: You take the open spaces, and give me a house instead, You sleep on boughs and boulders, but give me a standard bed. Go plunge into the m ountain stream. and give your skin a thrill, But for me turn on the faucets in the bathtub if you will. Go eat your beans and bacon in the rain and snow and muck, If I can reach a table I will feel that I’m in luck. You are welcome to the victuals which are interspersed with ants, With wifey’s kitchen products I will gladly take a chance. You hunters and you anglers, here’s to you as you roam, The more I see of camp-life the more I think of home. Mr. Wilson was born in Lanark, Carroll county, Illinois, on June 19, 1879, the son of Frank J. and Cor delia Miller Wilson. Ho received his early education in the public schools of Tama county, Iowa, and Jewel county, Kansas. He then moved to Miles City, Montana, with his par ents and was graduated from the Miles City high school in 1897. He entered the law school of Northern Indiana university at Valparaiso. After his graduation therefrom in 1899, he was associated with C. R. Middleton of Leavenworth, Kas., for about a year and a half. Then he came to Billings in January, 1901. There are many people in Montana who will regret the passing of Harry Wilson. He had a wonderful sense of humor, and a happy way of expres sing himself in both prose and poetry, and a wit th a t sparkled. He went through life radiating happiness and good humor and the world in which he moved is better th a t he lived.- STABILIZE PRICE OF WHITE METAL SMOOT BILL TO AID IN SE CURING CIRCULATION OF SILVER DOLLARS The senate mining committee has up for consideration the Nich olson resolution proposing the ap pointment of a commission to go abroad to interest foreign govern ments in increased use of silver. Chairman Poindexter said the sil ver question had assumed such im portance that the committee will consider not only the Nicholson resolution but substitute proposals that have been submitted and will go carefully into the subject, with the hope of reporting a-resolution or bill that will give more sub stantial promise of helping to sta bilize the price of silver, after the Pittman act expires. The senator thinks that several meetings of the committee will have to be held to sift the matter. He is hopeful, in view of the emergency, that con gress will pass a suitable measure before adjournment March 4, for relief, if there is to be any, must come by the time the Pittman act expires, probably in September or October next. The Smoot Bill Senator Smoot, in formally pre senting his bill authorizing the government to pay expressage on silver dollars shipped from mints to banks, said his measure was in the interest of economy so far as the government is concerned, but is designed primarily to restore sil ver dollars to general circulation in the west. The cost to the govern ment of paying the expressage on silver dollars distributed from the Denver mint to western banks, he estimated, would not average more than a tenth of a cent per dollar and the government would save something like $25,000 a year by the substitution of silver dollars for paper money in the west. Senator Smoot hopes to get quick action on his bill in commit tee and when it is reported, will urge its consideration as an emer gency measure. His bill does not provide that the government shall pay the express charges on silver dollars returned by the bank«; to the treasury, but merely on silver dollars newly issued and shipped to the banks.

Desk HI012 FORTUNE SMILES ON LIBBY LAW YER CARVING THOUGHT WORTHLESS MAY DEVELOP TO BE OF GREAT VALUE Rare Antique Has H ang on the W all of His Homo for 30 Years, and Considered of L ittle Valne; Prob ably is Antique Art Masterpiece. To discover that an ornament that has hung on the wall of one's house for many years, has been more or less carelessly' shipped back and forth across the country several tim es, is possibly an old art masterpiece worth $50,000 or more is the experience of B. F . Maiden, Libby attorney. Maiden plans to leave for New York to confer with experts on an tique art works at the Tiffany insti tution in th a t city, and attem p t to find out definitely w h ether the value mentioned really attaches to the ob ject in question. An oval carving in some white sub stance, either ivory or alabaster, is the article about which the big ques tion m ark in Maiden's thoughts re volves. This carving was given him at the time of his m arriage, by Mrs. Maiden's father, and it had been in possession of Mrs. Maiden's ancestral family since shortly after the Ameri can revolution. Bought in 1788 The family tradition is that one of the men of the family purchased the carving in a New York pawn shop about the year 1787 or 1788. That was just before the family m igrated to Ohio to take up land grants given for services in the Revolutionary war. The little white ornam ent passed from generation to generation, and for the last 12 years or so has decor ated the wall of the Malden home in South Libby. Shortly after Mrs. Maiden’s death some m onths ago Mr. Maiden received a letter from one of her relatives, suggesting th a t the carving might have considerable value as an antique, and advising him to investigate the possibility. Sent a Photograph Maiden secured a photograph of the ornam ent and Bent it to Tiffany’s. A few days ago he received a reply from the New York establishm ent to the effect that it had been impossible to assign the work to its proper place in history from the picture alone, and advising him to send it to New York, insuring it for not less than $50,000. The carving is in oval shape. It is protected by a mahogany frame and a convex glass. The oval is about seven inches long and four inches high. Carved deeply into its surface is depicted a street scene, with knights cm horses, foot soldiery, monks' and townspeople: . The, cos tum es indicate th a t the scene is a picture of life in the days of ttìe'C ru-’ saders, in France or Italy, about one thousand years' ago. W onderful Artistry The marvelous feature of the plaque Is the wonderful artistry with which i t is carved. Every figure, and there are hundreds of tiny figures in the picture, was carved separately, with infinite pains and extraordinary skill. ' Some of the faces of the back ground figures are so small th a t the features c annot be distinguished with the naked eye, yet when viewed through a m agnifying glass every face is perfect. Mr. M aiden s ta tes th a t on the back of the plague, hidden by the fram e, Roman num erals are roughly carved th a t seem to indicate some years in the fifteenth century. The letters a re so faint it is hard to decipher them exactly, but he thinks they show 1470. If th a t is correct, and the date indicates the year the plaque was fin ished, i t Is more than 450 years old.
