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.

NEWSPAPER LAW. A postmaster is required to give official notice (returning a paper does not satisfy the law) when a subscriber does not take his paper from the office, and to state the reasons for its being taken, and a neglect to do so makes the post­ master responsible to the publisher for the payment. Any person who takes a paper from the post- ' office, whether directed in his name or in that o f another, or whether 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 is made, and collect the whole amount whether it be taken from the office or not. There can be no legal discontin uance until the payment is made. If the subscriber orders his paper to be stop­ ped at a certain time, and the publisher con­ tinues to send it, the subscriber is bound to pay for it i f he takes it out o f the office. The law proceeds upon the ground that a man must pay for what he uses. The courts have decided that refusing to take newspapers and periodicals from the postoflloe is pnma facie evidence of intentional fraud. A P R O C L A M A T I t>19. Gov. Toole has issued the following proclamation concerning the observance of Arbor D a y : S tate of M ontana , ] E xecutive O ffice , !> H elena , M arch 4,1892. j Tuesday, the 19th day of April, A . D. 1 8 9 2 ,5s hereby set apart as a day for the planting of trees, beautifying homes, cemeteries, highways, public grounds, and landscapes, and those who teach in public schools are especially requested to train the thoughts of the youth in tree planting and decorating by practi­ cal observance of that day. In testimony whereof, 1 have hereunto set my hand and caused the great seal of the state to be affixed at the city of Helena, the capital of the said State, this fourth day of March, A. D. 1892. By the Governor: ,Jos. K . T o o l e . L. R otwitt , Secretary of State. T h e indications now are that the Burlington will build this way at some distant day. The attention of mining men is called to the enormous beds of coal in the Crow’s Nest Pass, and the advisabilit}7- of building a rail­ road north from Helena through this section. T he government wants to know why Helena may no! dam the Missouri river at Stubh’s Ferry, and Great Falls will try her level best to give the reason why it should not be done. ident Harrison says on the subject . He demands the re-establishment of last year’s modus vivendi, not receiving which, he will protect the seals by force oí arms. This means business, and if Johnny Bull wants a fight, he can have it. W h i l e the work of the Choteau county grand jury in exposing the bounty frauds and bringing the perpetrators to justice is highly appreciated, considerable wonder is expressed that the burning of the court house and county rec­ ords, and the entry of town lots .on the old military reservation some years ago, was not looked into. River Press: The people of Cho­ teau are in a fair way, from pres­ ent appearances, to get a railroad through that section much sooner than at first anticipated. It now appears that the intention of the projectors of the Burlington is not to stop at Great,Falls, but to go on past Choteau right up through the rich and fertile west end o f the county’, to the Great Northern, which it will intersect at. a point just east of the Marias Pass. Crossing the Great North­ ern, the Burlington will go on to FortMacleod, N. W. T. A branch of the Canadian Pacific from Cal­ gary will pass by Fort Macleod westward, and with the Burling­ ton, go through the Crow’s Nest paS3 to the coast. This is the plan of operations upon which the Bur­ lington has about decided, aud our Choteau friends are jubilant in consequence. W I L L P R O T E C T T H E SE A LS Evou Though it Taises Uic Ekt- tire M ilitary ami N a v a l Force o f The 8J. S. W ashington , March 23.—The presi­ dent’« message transmitting Lord Salis­ bury’s reply tc* the last note from this government relative to the modus viven­ di was laid before the senate in executive session at 12 o’clock. Lord Salisbury’s reply, as already stated, is a virtual re­ iteration of his declination to renew the modus vivendi on the same terms as in­ sisted on last year. II is refusal to con­ sent to a renewal of the modus vivendi is accompanied with several counter- propositions, the reading of which was received with ill suppressed irritation by the senate. in his rejoinder to Lord Salisburyfwhich appeared to meet with . the unanimous approval of the senators. * A N O F F E R . ‘ p The undersigned hereby agrees to lease a mill site adjoining the town of Choteau, free, to any re* liable party or parties who will build and operate a 75 barrel! flouring mill thereon. Said lease to hold good as long as said mill is operated. J. G. H opkinson . A FINE COPPER EXHIBIT A huge piece of ore weighing nearly five tons was recently shipped from the \“ Mountain Con” to Baltimore. The ore was : solid copper glance and had been mined for over a year. Fqr nearly that time it had laid neai the Moun­ tain Con hoist. A few days ago* Marcus Daly ordered it to be packed in sawdust and placed in an iron bound box and sent to Baltimore. From there it is said it. will be shipped to France, where it will bb exhibited as a huge advertisement of the great­ ness of Butte’s mines. From Fiance it will probably be ‘ship­ ped back to America, and will be given a prominent place in the Montana mining exhibit at the World’s Fair. It is a very rich piece of ore, and it is almost pure metal.--Butte Inter-Mountain. W E A T H E R \R E P O R T . F e b r u a r y . 1892. 1891.'

T he 'large deposits of coal in the Crow’s Nest Pas's, north of here, can only be brought to Montana along the eastern base of the mountains. This insures a rail­ road for this section and at no dista'nt day, either. T he ati tude o f the British gov­ ernment toward .the United States in regard to theBehering Sea mat­ ter is not satisfactory to Uncle Sam as is plainly shown by what Pres- Tiic president’« rejoinder was also transmitted to the senate. It is a pun­ gent communication in which the presi­ dent broadly but in diplomatic language hints that Lord Salisbury has not met his overtures iu a straitforward, busi­ ness-like manner. The president insists upon a renewal of the modus vivendi without reference to insignificant or ir­ relevant conditions and closes his note- with the stirring assertion that if the government of Great Britain declines to assist in the protection of seals during the arbitration of the claims of the United States he will proceed to enforce the laws and exclude poachers from. Behriug sea if the military force' of the United States is required to accomplish it. The note created a sensation in the senate. There was no expression of opinion by the president in his letter of transmital, but this was not needed in view of the clearly defined position assumed by him p a f e d to m a k e BOOTS a n d SHOES to o r d e r on ' sh o r t n o t i c e .
