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.
T H E M O N T A N I A N . Published Every Friday Evening at Choteau Choteau Co., Montana. S. M. CORSON, Editor. FRIDAY, JANUARY 27,1898. WELCOMLIfl 1E1 ON C'i.UAiY. Under the above caption the Great Falls Tribune extends the right hand of fellowship for Cas cade county. On behalf of the people o f Teton county T he M on tan ian returns thanks to the Tri bune for the good vroids express ed in thefollowing: “ The Tribune congratulates the people of western Choteau that they are to have a county of their own, with a county seat near enough to their homes to rei dor it reasonably accessible to ail. The town ot Choteau will soon be come an important center for local trade, especially after it is ei\vn railroad facilities, and this should not be far off. The town supports two weekly papers, which credit ably represent the democratic and republican parties, and work faith fully for the advancement ot their district. The Teton Times looks after democratic inteiests and T he M ontanian after those ot the republicans. Teton countv was a necessity • t and its creation will prove of gieat benefit to the state. The creation of several new counties will have the advantage in all probability of makeiiu the major ity for one party or another in the legislature sufficiently strong to facilitate business and to induce harmonious action. The region embraced in the new county ot Teton is one of great possibilities, which will sometime in the near future possess a population and all the other attributes necessary to au independent state- C h o t b a u ’ s only danger to forge- jug ahead, now that Teton ccunty has been created, lies in the pro pensily of some of her property holders to advance rents ami prices on real estate to the highest notch possible. Gentlemen, that is not the way to build up your town. You cannot obtain to-day what your lots may be worth next year or the next. If your lots, or •uch of them as you have for sale, are worth $25, §50 or $100 now, and the indications are that next year they will be double that price, you must not demand it. If you have lots for sale (and you must sell Jots or build the town yourselves) you must demand no more than what those lots are worth to-day. Small margins must be asked on the sale of all lots, and on those desired be par ties who wish to build business houses, manufatoriea, residences, etc.,'still smaller margins, and in lome cases it will be wise to offer lots as a'bdnus, particularly when the owner of the lot holds several ethers. Later, when the town has Attained stability and prominence fancy prices can undoubtedly be obtained for choice locations, but to run prices 200, or 300 per cenJ, when all vve have here of a town is a name, is suicide, and it is the only thing that can possibly keep the town down. Keep down the prices and up goes the the town— noi “ in smoke'*nor‘*up the flume,'’ but upward and onward, toward the goal they all have sought—and many mourned because they found it not. B efering to the passage of the Teton county in the senate last week and the substitution oi'Ham* ilton for sheriff of the new county, the Anaconda Standard says: \This man..or of s: tiling the Box Eider contest may be satisfactory to the members of the legislature, and it may prove satisfactory to Mr. Hamilton and Mr. Leech. But it will scaicelv prove satisfati ry to (he people of Montana. Mr. Hamilton was either elected or he was not elected. Ignoring or evading the issue is only throwing the doors wide open for fraud at every ¡-ueeeeding election. By this course the legislature not only blinds its eyes to fraud, but ac tually encourages it.” A c u r i o u s feature of the vole in Choteau i ounly last fall was, that f< r officers having a direct bearing upon the tariff question, clean cut maj .rities were returned. For president, IlaniVon had a majority of 5S and a pluralitvof 112: for con gressman, Hartman had a m »jui\ly of TO and a piurali'.v of 125. Tue republican members of the legisla ture both bad majorities. The governor, however, lacked 10 of a majority and his plurality was but 46. This would tend to show that, leaving out the the tariff question, which has a pecuniary interest for our people, the county is demo cratic by a fair m joritv. J ustice L amar , of the United States supreme court, died sud denly at Macon, Ga , Monday evening, and is to be buried there to-day. WI itu Did Kx-President Cleve land Die? The announced death of ex-President Hayes, recalls the fact that there is no e-xpresiilent of the United States now living. Ol recent years presidents have not long survived the expiration of their terms of office.—Anaconda Standard. ---------- ■ ^ - P B * ■ ■ ---------------- Phonographic Entertainment.
