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.

ALL ADVERTISIN0 BILLS P 1.IILE THE 151 0F EACH MO \ THURSDAY, AUGUST 6, 1891. Maryland democrats have ex- pressed themsAves solidly for Gor- man for president. Francis Murphy, the leltilwrance worker, is gathering sinners in Hel- ena. He will remain there some time. The field is immense. Mrs. Mary Hopkins Searles, of Methuem, Mass., died and in her will left all her millions to her husband. This is a new style in wills and should become popular with all hen - peeked men. THE COLUMBIAN received seven let- ters in one mail from eastern people asking informat ion about the Flathead country. That is fair evidence that Columbia Falls is known in the land east of the Mississippi. • From all indications the present City ceameil of Missoula will become as unpopular as the celebrated Don- ald Bradford regime did in Helena. Inactivity is the greatest crime a mu- nicipal body can be guilty of. l e Long Island still raises a class of in people who look at a circus with mouth open and popping eyes. Dur- ing a recent street parade a bank at Sag Harbor was robbed. The cash- ier had not traveled much. The Rock Island road has sued Jay Gould for $10,000 per day for every day that Gould's Omaha bridge was closed to the former company. Jay will hardly miss $10,000 a day, if he loses the suit, but he has a habit of winning. The man who says Butte is dull is luny. It has hoss races and the Pa- via will case going on at once. Among the notables present are Bob Wade. Bob Ingersoll, Cyclone, Nathaniel Meyers, Nettie S. and J. C. Sconce. it's Butte's inning. Several heavy capitalists of Denver have recently gone to the wall, owing it is said to the decline of real estate values. They should have bought Montana dirt. It gets richer and better every year, and the fellow who hasn't any of it is the one who fails. - • Montana MPH are going on an ex- cursion to the Coeur d'Alenes, aud get acquainted. That ' s a good plan. Idaho and Montana should pull tc- gether. Their resources and interests are identical. Good fellowship is sential to the progress of both. - - - - Several English statesmen are agreed that prize fighting shall not be revived in England, and parlia- ment will probably enact laws that will make Charley Mitchell et al. hunt new pastures. However, En- gland can abolish prize fighting by letting Sullivan whip a dozen or two of their best men. Jews are being driven out of Rus- sia in hundreds, and those arriving in America tell pitiful tales of the hardships they were put to in the hell of which the czar is the Mephis- topheles. If another bomb explodes under the czar's throne, little sympa- thy will go from these shores or those of any other enlightened coun- try. _ The Helena Journal is authority for the following, which is of interest to lumbermen: In advertising the notice of application for cutting it is necessary that they should be in- serted four times to cover the period of twenty- one days, which is the law. There have been S good many notices sent in with the instruc- tion to insert three times, but in all such cases they will have to be republished. _ \Reflections Thoughts and Max- ims \ is the title of the book Boulan- ger is about to spring on an unsus- pecting constituency. Dollars to doughnuts the two latter are not worth the penny so freely offered in the old adage, but his past career ought to offer food for some enter- taining reflections. Land Commissioner Carter has ruled that any application for permis- sion to cut timber must not only be submitted to the department with publication notice and affidavit de- scribing land, and kind and amount of timber desired, but that the party making application must await the department's order or ho maw risk pso.i.cittion and rejection of applica- tion Stanley ' s contract with the Amer- ican publishers of his book called for $40,000 in royalty. It is now author- itatively stated that he has received from them the additional sum of $11- 000, and that Maj. Pond paid to him $90,1X10 as his portion of the proceeds of the lecture tour, all of which goes to show that the greater the hum- bug the faster will the Amerivan pub- lic fly (4) chip in honest dollars toward its support. Matthew Q.may ham resigned the chairmanship of the Nat ional repub - lican committee. While the usual resolutions were passed, the republi - cans generally feel grateful to him for having stepped down and out of such ',arty prominence. It is not necessary for republicans to believe all that is said of Quay to rejoice at his resignation, for it is a matter of public importance that 110 IttililtS1 man should stand at the head of either of the great parties. A Washington special says that ex -Senator Ingallshas solved the question which everyliody is asking by consenting to become one of a party which is to make a tour through Southern Europe and the Holy Land. The party is to consist of twenty live persons, if the projector of the excur- sion can get that menbor of desira - ble tourists to put up the amount. of money that he requires. This looks like a scheme to swindle the guileless hayseed and twenty-four other fish out of water, by making them pay dearly for the privilege of being chap- eroned. A BREATHING SPELL. Several 1114 , 11 have called attention to the fact that for the past three weeks arrivals in the Flathead vall y have been fewer than during any pe - riod sites , March. It would be rather strange if any other condition existe There is a splendid reasonfor it. All the western and middle states art , in the midst of one of the most bounteous harvests known in years. Crops are larger than before in ten years, and the agricultural prosperity extends from ocean to (Wean, including the Dakotas, Nebraska and Kansas, in %%licit a crop is badly inmsled. This splendid harvest makes business for everyone at home, and farmers, bank - ers and merchants have no time to in- vestigate the attractions aml resources of new countries. When the harvests are laid up, then the westward tide will swell. Moneyed mensminufacturers,farmers, merchants and prof..ssional men will have time to take a trip, and then Montana will have her share. The Flathead valley will be the magnet that draws, and new faces, new men and new money will be here seeking investment and employment. The present is only a breathing spell.
