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.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 1891. NEWSPAPER LAW. A postmaster is required to give official notice (returning a paper Ones not satisfy the law) when a subscriber does not take his paper from the office, and to state the reason- for us being taken, and a neglect to do so makes the poa - master responsibie to the publisher for the payment. Any person who takos a paper from (lie post- office, whether direciodin his name or ¡n that of another, or wh< ther he has subscribed or not, is responsible for the pay. . If a person orders his paper discontinued, he must pay all arrearages, or the publisher may continue to send it until payment i> made and collect the whole amount whether it be taken from the office or not There m»n be no Kgal discontinuance unlit the payment is made. If the subscribe' ordeis his paper to be stop ped a t a certain time, and tne publisher con tinues to send it, the subscriber is bound to pay for it if he takes it out of the office. The law proceeds upon th»'«round that a man must pay for w hat he uses. The courts tmvo decided th at rel'a-mg to take newspapers aud periodicals from Lhe postofliee is prima facie evidence \£ ltiteulioiiai iraiiil. Gov. T oole lias issued a call Jor an irrigation congress to meet in Helena on 'ihurscLy, January 7, 1892, at 12’ in PrOBABi.Y the bem upp rtunity ever offered in any town to buy real estate will take place in Oho teau, on Wednesday, December 22; when 292 town lots will be sold by A. B. Hamilton, adminis trator of the estate of the late Rosa Hazlett. S tate veterinarian, Dr. Hollo way, is quoted as saying that tin* exceptional good health of cattle in Montana is largely due to the examinations made of Texas cat tle brought into the state from March to November, and that the sheep industry will finally drive the cattle business out of the state. I f the remonitization of silver as a full legal tender money is ever to be accomplished, .-ays Sec retary Foster, it can only be done by the actions of the nations < f sufficient commercial importance to maintain some fixed rate in the coinage between gold and silver. The new silver act is an import ant step in that direction. T he effect of recent railroad leg islation upon finances, according to Mr. Thad ay, of Yale, has caus ed a shrinkage of values in systems west of Chicago, of $60,000,000, or more than 25 per cent, of the par value of their stocks. A loss of one per cent in interests on rail road securities means a tall in the capital valuations greater than the whole wiieat and cotton crops of the country. T he boards of county commis- - sioners of the counties nairnd In-- | low have been requested ly Gov. j Toole to appoint delegates at their December meeting to attend the Irrigation Congress which is to be held at Helena next January.

The following was issued last Friday afternoon by the president of the United Stales: A PROCLAM MTON. It is a very glad incident of marvelous prosperity which has crowned the year now drawing to a close, that its helpful au l reas suring touch has been felt by all of our people. It has been as wide as our country and so special that every home has felt its com forting influence. It is too great to be Lhe work of man’s power, and too particular to be the devise of his mind. To God, the beniii- cienl and all Wise, who makes lhe labels of men lo be fruitful, re deems their losses by His grace and the measure of whose giving is as much beyond the thougths of man as it is beyond his deserts, Lhe praise and gratitude of the people of this favored nation are junly due. Now, therefore. I, Benjamin Harrison, President oi lhe Uni led Stales of America, do he ebv appoint Thursday, the 26« h day oi November, to be a day of joyful thanksgiving to God for the bounties of His providence, for i he peace in which We are permitted to enjoy them, and tor the preser vation of tiiose institutions of civil and religious liberty which he gave our fathers wisdom to devise and establish and courage lo pre serve. Among the appropriate observances of the day are rest from toil, worship in public con gregation, renewal of family lies about our American firesides and thoughtful helpfulness toward those who sufier a lack of body or of spirit. In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United Siat.es to be affixed. Done at the city of Wash ington, this thirteenth day of No vember, in the year of our Lord One Thousand Eight Hundred and Ninety-One, and of the Indepen dence of the U nited States the one hundred and sixteenth. (Signed) B enjamin H arrison , . President. By J ames G. B laine , Secretary ol ¡Slate. BY THE GOVERNOR. On Saturday last Governor Toole issued the following: The second year of statehood has tiiied the full measure ol propnecy. From every source comes the glad news of prosperity and contentmeut. Every business V interest has increased with the years. Mines and mills are in full blast. Slock and range are prepared to challenge the winter. Agriculture, made certain of ma turi y and piolific of yield by irn gation, is opening a new field for capital and labor. Our people ar generally employed and govern ment is felt, if at all, most in its benefits and least in its restraints. These are ample to demand our recognition of divine favor and to call for a day of thanksgiving and prayer. Now, therefore, I, Joseph K. Toole, governor of Montana, do accordingly appoint as such, Thursday, November 26, A. D., 1891. On that day let business be suspended and g ve to the great heart of humanity a chance to do good. In witness whereof I have here unto set. my hand and caused the seal of the state to be affixed. D< me at the capital, this four teenth day of November, A. D., 1891 [ seal ] J oseph K. T oole . By the governor: L R otwiit , Secretary of State. ---------------- ^ -------------------------- Dec reus«-; «.>f i^riiish Trade. [Inter Mountain.] The London News this morning has asaiticle, so to day’s cable itaU s, io tne effect that the trade ol Great Britain with the United Stales lias fallen off twenty per cent. According to the report of the board of trade. This decrease lhe News adds “may be fairly at. tribuied to the McKinley bill.” This admission is pregnant with significance to the people of the United Slates. It- means simply that the American people are sending fou dollar« abroad for goods where they u*ed u> scud five, and that this difference of twenty per cent, in the amount of money expended goes into Am<-*ri can pockets instead of English pockets, is paid out for American labor instead of Knglins . 1 «l»or. for American goods instead of EnglLh goods. Such is the result of tin operation of the McK nley lull and it is doubly a mat ter of con gratulalion because with the res triction of British trade compel i lion in this countiy-lhere is no in crease in prices. In fact the co«i of living undenhe McKinley bib is lower than it was before. No free trade orati r or organ can deny that proposition without lying. The news from Louday to day is another nail in the tree trade and low wages coffin. M ine ra l JL ind Coinm i signer. [Madisonian.] Our Montana republican con temporaries are goiug after Major Maginnis because he is making a few speeches in the east, in be half of free trade, free silver, and free democracy, while he is draw ing a salary from this state as min eral land commissioner. The Ma jor is only doing vvhat public office holders have done from time im memorial. and as we have always looked upon the office which he holds as one that sho,u!d never have been created, and upon its creation as an intentional and direct insult- to our senators and representatives in congress, we don’t care how many free trade speeches the distinguished major makes. His office was created more to give the governor an op portunity to throw a little “sop” to party adherents, than for any benefit that could accrue to the public from it. But since we come to think of it, isn’t the ma jor’s indorsement of Cleveland lor the democratic nomination next year, a little, out of tune with his great, speech in favor of free coin • age, before the Omaha congress?
