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.

This is the stoiy in brief as told to the Tri bu ne by D. G. Browne, chairman of the democratic central commit tee. If these are the facts in the case Mr. Hamil ton cannot hold the certificate, as the board cannot throw out the returns of a precinct « hich are regular and a correct re port of the vote^cast. That Al Rogers was to provious in issuing the certificate will appear later bn. How w i l l those prominent democrats who knifed Al Hamil ton so unmercicfully in the west end of Choteau county explain matters should that gentleman be a5 were a^so the board in throwing seated in the house? ¡ out the vote.

H irri on. invalidate that vote, much less the vote of i hose who did not sell theirs and in no way can it be construed as sufficient cause for the action oi the returning board. The men Benj [ who bought and sfld votes have committed a felony, simply. As w i l l be remembered, the Great Falls- News, just, prior to the election, charged S. A.

Of course every body knows, or ought to know thit the News could just as well hive of,end to do the work freeo! charge as for three dollars Jess than the legal rate, for it could More About The Queen. Ohoteau’s Cattle Queen is re ceivihg the attention of the press of the country since the publica lion in T he M ontanian of Mrs. Collins’ trips east. Two articles have appeore 1 in this paper giv­ ing aceou ts of her and of the way she conducts the sales of her live, stock. Both of.them were widely co.pitd throughout the United States, so that to clay Mrs. Nat Collins of Choteau, is .known throughout the length and breadth of the land as “ The Cattle Queen of M uttana.” Now comesithe Great Fall Tri bune with the fqllowing: “ Mrs. Collins is well known in this eit»*, although she does not live 1 ere, as stated above. Disir- ing ro find out something more c f her than the dispatch tells, a Tri bun ■ r .‘ porter went, to Mr. Jam» s D<vis, shipping clerk at Bach, Cor\ & Ci».’-, a id t Id him his errand. , “ I know Mrs. Collins very well,” not get the work, not ha\e having I said Mr. Davis, and have known been designated as. the paper in which such notices were to be published.

F rom a democratic som e' we learn that ihe canvassing board oJ Choteau í ountv lias thrown out her tor some twenty-five years. She was married at ray house in He eua to Mr. Collins'about eigh teen years ago. As a business manager she has demonstrated the fact that she is a success.
