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.

ITS »LaFollette Planks Rejected ? Protective Tariff Polcy » One of Most Important Convention Hall, Clveland, O., June 11.—In a brief session marked with a prolonged demonstration for Presi­ dent Colidge, the republican conven­ tion Wednesday night adopted its platform, as reported by the resolu­ tions committee and rejected the La- Follete planks presented from the Wisconsin delegation. Election of the senators and repre- , sentatives who believe in republican * principles and acknowledge party re- • sponsibility is urged in the party platform. This appeal constitutes in the con­ cluding plank which declares that the government functions best when the president is supported ‘‘by a ma­ jority in congress of the same politi- v cal faith, hnited by party principles and able by concerted action to carry out in an orderly way a definite con­ sistent and well-balanced program.” Other high spots in the platform are: Platform Hiflh Spots American adherence to the world court as' recommended by President Collidge. Demand for speedy prosecution of s and condemnation of those who strive indiscriminately to besmirch the names of the innocent and under­ mine the confidence of the people in the government. A declartion for rigid enforcement of the law, but without specific men­ tion of prohibition. Scientific readjustment of railroad rates scheduled with a view to en- ’ couragement of agriculture and basis v industries without impairment of rail­ road traffic.

Progressive reduction of the taxes \ of all the people as rapidly as may be, and the placing of the federal tax systems on a sound peace time! basis. Commendation of the “firm insist­ ence” of President Coolidge upon rigid government economy. Settlement of foreign debts grow­ ing out the war on-the basis of the agreement concluded with Great Britian. Protective Tariff Re-affirmation of the belief in the protective tariff policy with a safe­ guard authorizing the president to ad­ just duties to prevent excessive taxes and too high custom charges. Renewal of a pledge to give the wounded and disabled war veterans “■that full measure of care guaranteed by an effective administration to which his patriotic services and sacri­ fices entitle him.

Chair- mittee in charge of the Reunion is receiving stacks of letters daily from the old “soldats” and with few excep­ tions they contain the welcome infor­ mation that they will be in a-tend- ance. Those who can’t make the for­ mation express the sentiment that it is one of their big regrets that cir­ cumstances will not permit their get­ ting here. The splendid rate of one fare.for the round trip if 150 miles distance from Helena is proving a big induce­ ment for the old soldiers. General DuMont of the French Embassy, Commander Jack Quinn of thé Legion and national representatives of many other organizations are among the men who will welcome the members of the many and patriotic organiza­ tions which will participate in the Re­ union. The Fourth Infantry is in camp at Fort Harrison, having arrived on Sun­ day, June 8th, making the hike from Missoula in nine days. The officers of the National Guard are finishing up a four-days training school and then return to their companies to ar­ rive in Helena on Saturday, June 14th Their presence will aid greatly in making the convention a success, as there will be a number of reviews* i parades, sham battles, etc., which add ’ to the variety of the entertainment program. The entertainment program has been shaping up rapidly. The pro-, gram for the'bfjg fight card , is practi­ cally: .complete ' .with,;,. Teddy. ■' Gar tin signed; üpv,to'‘'takA on .Joe. Slmonich, .the fast yrelter*from Éutté. Tire pré- limihary dope is that . Qartln will make Simonitih step about as fast as he can go if he is to hold up his end o f “the swatfest. Gartin has been putting his men out with startling' regularity. The rest o f the program will be equally fast and should make one of the best cards ever staged in the state. The entertainment com­ mittee has been putting in some ’’eal licks during the past week and prom ises that if “a good time was had by all” does not hold good during this Convention, it will not be their fault. The Executive Committee asks that all members of the organizations par­ ticipating in the Reunion try to be in by Thursday afternoon, if possible, in' order to welcome the distinguished j visitors who will address the Reunion at that time. ns C o o l i d g e a n d G e n e r a l D a w e s W i l l H e a d G . 1 P .

President Codfrtfge’s nomination was accomplished with only a ripple of dissent from Wisconsin and South Dakota, but the t omination of his running mute only the convention had once chosen Frank O. Low den of Illinois, and been forced by his declination to choose another—Charles G. Dawes, the “ Hell—and—Maria” general. After a short race with Herbert* Hoover, who came into the balloting after the declination of Lowden, Dawes galloped off with the nomination. In a brief and spectacular fight in which William Butler, President Coolidge’s campaign manager, had said to S° \ator Reed of Pennsylvania, “ It must biioover,” and Senator Reed had replied “ It can’t be done, it ntust be Dav. es,” the Dawes supporters, after the declination of former Governor Lowden of Illinois, marshalled their forces and put the general across for nomination. SPECTACULAR SCENE Earlier in the day Mr. Butler’s forces had passed the word that the administration men desired the nomination of Theo­ dore E. Burton of Ohio, and in the voting which followed the supporters of Frank O. Lowden of Illinois ran away with the nomination for their man only to have him decline it. The nomination of Dawes came as the climax to one of the most spectacular scenes in republican party history, in which the. convention- once having: nominating a candidate, was obliged to undo -its work, and find another. After the nominatibn'of aril npunced' and Senator James-®/ Watgon\had moved it to be made By accliamatidn, Senator Pepper1 o f' Pennsylvania, took the platform and offered a resolution to appoint Chairman Mondell of the convention chairman of the committee to not­ ify President Coolidge of his nomination and to appoint Theodore E. Burton, chairman of the convention, to notify General Dawes of his nomination. Adoption of miscellaneous resolutions and notions con­ cluded the business of the convention. The new national committee was called to meet tomorrow for organization ana the convention adjourned. The great show was over. DAWES ACCEPTS Brig.-Gen. Charles G. Dawes tonight accepted the nomina tion for the vice-presidency. “I accept the nomination by the republican party for the vice-presidency,” he said, in a formal statement when in­ formed of his nomination by The Associated Press. “ I deeply appreciate the honor conferrd upon me.” The vice-presidental nominee had returned. t.o his old home at Marietta Ohio this week to attentive’ fortieth reunion of his class at Marietta college from wJjpich he graduated. He remained here to visit with his sisfce^and friends.

Montana, June 6, 1924.— A new circular by chief forreater Greeley,- dealing with the problems of iaie forest' lands and lumber prices, has just been received at the district I office of the forest service here. That a timber shortage already exists and that in some regions for­ ests are a paying crop are among the important facts brought out by the forester, who says: “Idle land and costly lumber— these are not vague or illusory glimp­ ses into the future.

C., June 11, 1924.— President Coolidge, by signing the tax measure, has kept his promise to re­ duce taxes, more especially those paid by the men and women wh’o earn but little. His action means that congress has granted the prenident’s demand that a flat reduction of 25 per cent be given for 1923—this is a decided victory for the people and for Calvin Ccolidgo--it mPans that die interests of the man or woman, no matter whether on tho farm or in the city, have been safeguarded by the president—it means (bat the bead of the nation has kept his word to the citizens of the land—it means that congress has at last realized than | the people stand solidly behind tiioi president in liis fight for a reduction- of taxes. It is true that the measure ju\t passed is not exactly what the! president desired. He wanted a bill! that would mean an even greater re­ duction of taxes. There is no doubt that at the next session of congress j the president will insist that the taxi bill be revised so as to give even further relief, and by that time the obstructionists in congress, will, no doubt, have been informed in em­ phatic terms by their constituents to do as the president desires. When June 7 th was tenatively agreed upon as the date of adjourn­ ment, the president summoned num­ erous leaders to the white house and flatly told them that farm legislation of remedical character was necessary before the members of the two bod­ ies departed for their homes. If con­ gress has any sagacity, political or otherwise, it will pass a real farm, relier bill before it adjourns. .The McNary-Ha’ugon bill has not met with the approval of the heads of The^manyr-farm.organizations, many of them claiming that .while it might give some slight temporary relief, it was economically unsound and im­ practical in application. The people and the president can see no reason why n bill to a’d agriculture] should not-be enacted into law and at once.

This is the final one of several pay­ ments that have bedn made to mem­ bers of the association since the open­ ing of the fall pool for the 1923 seas­ on, and marks the closing of that pool.. Members /of the association 'will be gratified at the news of this final settlement, for it is being made rather more promptly than had be£a • expect­ ed. and to the membership' generally it will come as an agreeable sur­ prise. Th« Montana Wheat Growers’ 'asmcielion has handled a large vol­ ume of wheat this past year, in spite of many s°' ’— ’ - -\d '’’ffi'ultirs, and the settlement ju^t made for the fall pool is the culmination or consiri- ernble amount of work in the associ­ ation offices. The association repre­ sents farmers in all parts of Mon­ tana, and has hondouerters in Lewis- town. It is affiliated with the Amer­ ican Wheat Growers’ Associated, with offices in Minneapolis, Duluth, Spo- kane, Portland and Seattle W ILEY SHANNON FILES FOR DISTRICT JUDGESHIP Helena, June 9.—Wiley J.
