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.

fjS f i î '- %.K* : THE MONTANIAN. ‘3v.-' t Î * - . ' F«bUshed Every Friday Choteau Co., Evening Montana. at Choteau $. M. CORSON, Editor. FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 1893. Tbo legislature is asked toiput the Dew county in the tenth, judicial district. ' Oipr citizens regardless of parity desires DuBose to preside over their court.— Teton Times.| Let us see whether this is so or not. Of course our contemporary •-attempts to speak for the citizens •f the proposed new county. But does it! In the recent campaign the democrats had a. regular nom, • ,ihated candidate in the person of Dudley.DuBose. The republicans had upon their ticket, John A ' Hoffman, a non resident and one against whom the republican cen tral committee labored most as siduously to defeat. Men in high place» in the republican parly in this county labored early and late for DuBose. The judge himself got out and rustled. The effort was mad« by, some republicans to prevent any opposition to Du Bo«e, even long before the con­ vention was. held or before any candidate had been spoken of, They used every effort to prevent the nominatioh of a republican candidate after D u B obs was nom­ inated by the democrats. And after Hoffman was placed on the ticket the republican central com mittee refused to recognize him »Jfcepublican campaigners from Benton ^ecreflyT'abored - forv Du Bose and did tlieii*' double darn dest to get him elected. Yet with all this treachery on the part ot several of the party leaders who visited this section, Hoffman went out of Teton county with a ma­ jority. Here at Ohoteau, where DuBose is better known than in anyother section of tho proposed new county, and whore Hoffman was an entire stranger to every­ body, the laiter got 103 voles to DuBose’* 85. At llobare DuBose 53 to Hoffman’s 61; at Dupuyer DuBose had one majority; at By num Huffman 17 to 10. At Clark’s DuBose got 12 majority and at Belleview 17 majority. The ma­ jority at Clark’s is accounted for on the ground that there was a strong effort made by some repub licans to have DuBose elected for reasons beat known to themselves, while at Belleview it was a strict party vote regardless of everything else—25 democrats to 8 republi­ cans nearly all the way through. DuBose was well known and had the unanimous support of the Choteau county democracy and a majority of the republican central committee, yet he was beaten in his section by a man who was a stranger to our people. These faeta clearly disproves the asser tion quoted at the head of this ar­ ticle „and shows that, the people regardless of party, repudiated DuBose at the polls two- months a^^hdffrom what we hear there islature «.{is askjedi? to put lh&new county’ini''the 8th judicial district Our citizens are largely in favor of having Judge Benton,-preside over their courts,” is the way our backstreet contemporary shoulc have put it if it desir ed to tell the truth about the matter. T he It g d ratio ot values be tween gold and silver is abort t six teen to one, bat the commercial values of the two metals is as twenty-three to one, that is to say. twent 3 r-three pound» of .siver equals one pound of gold with gold as -the standard of ‘ values. The purchasing power of gold is alone regulated' by the supply, of and demand for articles of con sumption. If the supply of any article for which there is no suit able substitute i9 limited, the pur­ chasing power of gold as regards that article is decreased. - - It then follows that if the demand' for sil ver for coinage- and the arts ia l'mited and the production large, the purchasing po wer of gold is increased. By incieasing the de mand for silver somewhat near the amount of production the purchas­ ing power of gold de­ creased as regards that metal, regards everything else it would be regulated alone by the supply and demand for those articles! The demand for gold as a medium of exchange is uni versal and the value is. regulated as above stated, that- of silver is Itfcaland-is limited .tp-the. artsrand- by legislation to a small portion of the production, henrte the V a l­ ues pf the two metals is ever vary­ ing. As the entire commercial com munity of the'world ia involved in this question it is not the province of any one section to say just what the relative values of the two metals- are. While the United States might fix the values and thereby remove silver from among the commodities in this country, other nations will not bo recognize it, and thereby every silver dollar we might-coin would be valued as a purchasing medium in a foreign country except as its market value in that country. What they bought of us would be payable for in silver and they would only receive onr gold in payment for what we bought of them. If they did accept silver in payment they would not take it at more than it was worth as a commodity among them. By this arrangemertt our gold would eventually go o u t . t o them and then silver would have no pur chasing power abroad. On the other hand if a majority of the great commercial nations will join with the United states in estab­ lishing the relative values o f the metals and make either a legal tehder and the circu­ lating medium will be increased and-the uncertainties and specula- iions .-in money matters greatly avoided auvd made safe..

T he legislature convened Monday and proceeded to business. In the house the democrats walked out when Hamilton was refused a >eat, but they cantfe in the next day and.the organization of the house was completed. «Mathews populist was chosen speaker.
