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.

Ma rcu sDaly has engaged a :ookey at $18,000 a year to ride his horses next year, and the Montana string will be heard from in the big turf events of 192. . _ There is a split in the Mormon church at Independence,Mo., and tie organization is threatened with dis- ruption. Without splits there would be little left of the Mormon church. News reaches us that the survey of this end of the valley over which there has been so much delay, has been accepted, and that the patient settlers will have an opportunity to gain a home in title as well as name. Recent advices indicate that a ha- ven has not yet been found for tl,e emigrating Jews. Baron Hirsch, Herr Franzos and Dr. Karanda, after a conference in Vienna, decided that the Argentine Republic was the most inviting spot visible at present. . . _ Butte and Helena pap( r are always engaged in a controversy. This time the question is. \Do the Montana republicans favor Harrison or Blaine?\ From this distance it is probable that if the fight goes, Louis .hmitt, the fat pioneer of Helena viii have a solid delegation. It, keeps the average man busy counting the various \political waves\ now sweeping the country. President Harrison took his wave along with him, and Mr. Blaine started his wave shortly after. The republican fear is that the tw.; waves will meet, while the democrat is fearful that there will be no collision. _ The Big Timber Pioneer is about to establish a police column in which the names of,all offenders against the peace will be printed- -the list to em- brace not only those convicted but who should be convicted. We are glad to note the proposed enlarge- ment of the Pioneer to the size of the ew York World. The superintendent of immigra- tion at New York reports that 405,- 664 immigrants arrived there during the year ended July 1, as against 328,- 691 the preceding year. That is a pretty bad record, and the turbulent tide now coming will soon trample under foot the freedom of this coun- try. In the apparent absence of any other means of punishment, a duck- ing in the river or a coat of tar and feathers would be a good medi- cine for some of the petty thieves who are now operating throughout the Flathead valley. There is an end to the patience of the most Job - like citizens. Two literary gentlemen, Col. Mc- Clure, editor of the Philadelphia Times, and John G. Nicolay, are en- gaged in an unseemly controversy through the newspapers over the question \Did Abraham Lincoln pre- fer Johnson or Hamlin for the vice presidency?\ The matter is unim- portant, at this time, and the airing of the views of McClure, Nicolay, ot al. will have no effect except to stamp them both as a pair of long eared po- litical jacks. At this time its nobody's business who Lincoln preferred. The Kallasspell Laphie has seen fit to open an unneccessary warfare upon Mr. G. H. Wheeler, a competent surveyor, and a man who commands greater respect in the Flathead val- ley than tho Laphic man could if he lived 100 years. To every citizen who is informed upon the survey, the at- titude of the Laphic shows a dense ignorance of the subject. Mr. Wheeler cannot be censured for re- fusing to prolong a controversy with an ignoramus. --------------- The four Murderers condemned to die by electrocution were executed at the Sing Sing prison on July 7. All present were pledged to secrecy but broke their word to the extent of de- claring the affair a success in every particular. Reporters were absolutely barred, so it may be some tinm; before the public is edified by a story of horrors similar to that printed on the death of Kemmler, but truth will out, and if the execution became fytelent the nevi spnpers will the fact. The young men and women of the Flathead valley who are desirous of an education should not overlook the offer made by Tim COLUMBIAN. It is a glorious opportunity for some de- serving young person to gain a blisi- ness education. ---• The Kssoula Gazette has been la- boring faithfully to ° impress the im- portance of the Missoula -flathead railroad movement upon the minds of Missoula citizens, but it seems . 8 hopeless task, so far. When the trade of this new region passes east through the mountains, or west to Spokane and Missoula is left with the sack to hold, the average citizen will awaken to the wisdom of the Gozetic's efforts. . . '1'lle AV011 Route. The citizens of Helena are rustling for the Avon route to bring that city into railway connection with Colum- bia Falls and the Flathead valley. It is a natural route for a railway, easy grades, and passes through a region that guarantees support to every mile of rails laid. It is by all odds the moEt feasible plan for the North- ern Pacific to tap this region. The line as now projected leaves the Northern Pacific at Avon, running up the Big Blackfoot, thence to the Big Fork, have a line as straight as an arrow; from the Big Fork to Colum- bia Falls, thence twenty miles up the North Fork to the grmtest coal meas- ures in Montana or on the Pacific. It is one of the most practicable railway projects ever started, and one that is certain of paying from the moment trains begin running. It means that the smelting men of Montana have learned that the equal of Rock Springs coal is near Columbia Falls waiting transportation faculties, and by obtaining it they release them- selves from the yoke the Union Paci- fic has so long made them wear—be- cause Rock Springs coal was esson- Hal to smelting. It means that Hel- ena and Butte want the trade of the Flathead country and are going to have it rather than see it go out through the mountains of St, Paul. WITH THE EDITORS. A Great Truth Lightly Spoken. The Butte Miner has printed a handsome boom edition for the Flathead country. Should some of the influential angels get hold of a copy of the paper, after reading the account, they will hold a caucus and (rive notice to the ruler of the m Uni- verse of their resignation to take ef- fect immediately. Reason: \No com- parison between the Flathead coun- try and heaven, anti we as a flock of angels don't propose to take the worst of it.\---Monarelt. We Didn't Feel That Way. Now is the winter of discontent for the man who celebrated. The ordi- nary Fourth of July celebration is a gun that kicks, and its reaction sets in about twenty-four hours after the fireworks. ---Miner. Proud of 1114 Children. Listen to what Professor Price, of English literature in Columbia col- lege, New York City, says: \To state my opinion frankly, there is not in our American literature of to -day, either in books or magazines, or in published sermons or lectures or speeches, any body of written En- glish so strong and effective, or even so correct, and in the true sense, clas- sical in point of style, as we find day after day ill the best editorial writ- ing of our American newspapers.' He surely received a copy of the Stinking Water Prospector, the gem newspaper of the Rocky Mountains. —Red bulge Picket. Journalist IC Courtesy.

They Never Have Before. Charles Stewart Parnell, the erratic Irish leader, has finally married Kitty, the recently divorced wife of O'Shea. It is not stated where the bashful young couple intend to spend their honeymoon, but no one would be sur- prised if they should go to Dublin, Couricr. A Wonderful Freak of Nature. J. H. Price, of Philipsburg, is the gentleman who on the 24th day of each July, between the hours of 3 and 9 o'clock p. m.. sheds his skin- -- slick and clean. Mr. Price leaves on the 8th of July for San Francisco, where he will remain with several em- inent physicians until his annual shedding, when they will sail for Eu- rope to be examined there by the medical fraternity. For this trouble $2,500 has been deposited with the Hyde Banking company, at Philips- burg, which will be paid over upon his return. Mr. Price is 47 years old, and in fifteen years has never been sick except three hours each time be- fore shedding, *hen he is very sick, having veils of vomiting, and very high fever. Physicians say that it is perfectly natural with him, and that there is not another case of • this kind on Irecord. It/cat/her Corfu, II News. WHEN FAIVElt CARVES THE DUCK. We all look on with anxious eyes, '11 hen father carves the duck, And mother almost always sighs When fa'her carves the duck. Then eli of us prepare to rise. And hold our bibs before our eyes. And be prepared for some surprise - When father carves the duck. He braces up and grabs a fork Whene'er he carves a duck. And won't allow a soul to talk Until he's carved the duck. The fork is jabbed into the sides, Across the breast the knife he slides While every careful person hides From flying chips of duck. The platter's always sure to slip When father carves a duck, And how it makes the dishes skip7 Potatoes fly amuck The squash and cabbage leap in space, We get stone gravy in our face, And father mutters a Hind.° grace Whene'er lie carves a duck. We then have lear .ed to walk around The dining room and pluck From off the window sills and walh• Our share of father's duck; While father growls and blows and jaws, And swears the knife was full of flaws, And mother jeers at him because He couldn't carve a duck. —Boston Transcript, TH E WOE I,D'S NOTABLES.

Lietenaut Colonel William Hewitt is one of the four surviving officers who took part in the battle of Water- loo. He was but twenty years old at the time, and served as junior captain of the:Fourteenth British regiment. Librarian Spofford, of the Congres- sional library, says that to the oft -re- peated question: \Do you read all these books?\ he replies: \Do you read all of your dictionary? A great library is the scholar's dictionary.\ Foreign papers announce that an engagement has been arranged be- tween the young king of Sema and Princess Xeina, the (laughter of the Prince of Montenegro. The young lady is only eleven years of age. It has long been known that the Czar favored such a match. The Queen Regent of the Nether- lands and her daughter declined the offer of a public reception during their recent visit to Amsterdam. They requested the city officials to use the money collected for the re- ception in feeding the poor. Conse- quently more than 30,000 poverty stricken creatures received presents of food and money, and 35,000 school children were provided with a break- fast. Each child also received a pho- tograph of the young queen. A Senator at a Prize Fight. Among the audience which wit- nessed the Kilrain-Slavin fight, one party was made up of Senator Stew- art of Nevada, ex-Congressman Dor- sey of Nebraska, and Congressman Hayes of Iowa. Senator Stewart's stalwart figure, his sombrero like straw hat and patriarchal snow white hiskers make him an immediate ob- ject of curious attention. Few per- sons in the great crowd, however, knew that the senator has a record as a fighter himself. In the old days when he was wield- ing shovel and pick in the mining camps of Nevada it was a frequent thing for differences between men to be settled by fiat fights. Senator Stewart was considered then to be the biggist \knocker out\ in the re- gion about Gold Hill ; and won his reputation only by many hard fought contests.—N. Y. Press.
