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 . PafcRafcad Evary Friday Evaning Tata a Ca., Montana. __ _____ * __ at Choteau 8. M. CORSON, Editor. FRIDAY, MARCH 8, 1893. T he legislative assembly closed its labors late last night. There was no choice for U. S. Senatoi and the joint assembly dissolved, sine die which, in this instance, is equivalent to a republican elec tion. The republicans are conse- quently very jubilant while the democrats a*Ve c^riesponj|ihgljy^d^f pressed. As predicted, Ihere teas no material change ip.the vote a» east during the past week.^ T eto » C ountt I E b AXII SH a R k U fcHAKfcl!! T hb governor vetoed the bouniy bill en Wednesday. The old bounty law if therefore still in force. T i l next senator from Montana will be a republican. This is not in accord with the assertion of the Helena Independent, but it is the facts in the case. T he people of Chinook, or I no division can be secured. You some of them at least, evident- mu>t not forget that there are Jy feel sore over the defeat of their others interested in the matter, às county scheme. The following o irpeople did in the past, and »up- from the Chino k Opinion, is not I pose that all you have to do is to good talk, e-pecially as the people ask tor what you want. You must have yet to get what they are | try it again, boys, as we did1, and after: “We bave been beaten by John W. Power, who made it hts special business to defeat this bill. He traded every thing iu eigut to make votes against it, and it is a gre it stain upon the legislative in­ stitution of this wonderful state that a division bill possessing the merits that the Blaine coumy bill did, can be killed by the work of one',man. Other bills have already been passed to create counties which will not be near as able or as comf^teut to maintain home govern­ ment. ^ B e n we bave been told that we would forget in two years. We would inform the àutbor of that sympathetic Am burst that thè men of this section are men* of firmness who have started in to cut loose from a deceased body, if you are of one mind you will surely get it if your cause is just— < and if you keep at it long enough.

The personnel . of Piesident Cleveland’s cabinet, as completed and announced by him, if as fol­ lows: Secretary of State—Walter Q; Gresham, of Illinois—Republican. Secretary of Treasury—John G. Another thing, John W. Power has some influence iu these mat ters, as you must all admit, and you cannot expect to secure his aid in the future if you presist in j«aburing him. The blame is on y.»urown people, as but for the conditions which existed among them Mr. Power could not have prevented the creation of Blaine coun y, though endowed with all the influence you accord him. Your language is a sad comraen- and that the iheinory of an junjust-and I tary on twelve of the sixteen men M arcs came in like a sul Ion old lion, and from the com »only accepted theory it will go out like a lamb, not, however, like 8 strong, healthy, frisky lamb, but like a lamb, nevertheless. Ts XXX will be a meeting at J. G. Bair's ( See at 8 o’clock, Mon­ day afternoon, te discuss the sub jtet of railroad communication with Great Falls. A lull alten dance of property owners is re quested. That there is need of a railroad to Choteau there is no question, and that a proposition to build oue will be considered by railroa d men. there is also none. The fiist is selfevident, and as to the latter we have the word'of one intertsted in the Great FaNs & Ganada, who writes that he thinks that if our people would offei sub •tantial assistance and make the proposition satisfactory to the di rectors they would cousidtr it favorably. He also states that he will be in Great Falls about tne middle of March and thaï he would be happy to discuss the subject with a Choteau delegation at a date to be fixed later. This, we take it, is the first really good •bowing for Choteau outside of the formation of Teton county, that our townspeople have had, and if they do not improve it they will not be wise. Now is the time to make hay. Come to the meet leg and discuss this ?ul ject. premeditated*wrong will ulifaiys- retuain until the timfi^rrives vefaettedfea-ean be avenged.” Now look here, bPdlhe^? Don't be too severe. You Should not be so sure that your bill had every advantage in that it was more just iban any of those presented and passed, and that it was de leated bv one man and that man was Jolm VV Power.
