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.

Rettders of THE COLUMBIAN will re- ceive the president's message in full. It will appear next week. Fonseca has been ousted front the Brazilian dictatorship, and his suc- cessor will, if omens count, have a brief official career. _ He who shoots and runs away may live to shoot some other day. Shelby Eli Dillard is reported to have dis- appeared after his shooting affray at Red Lodge. How delightful is the peace and contentment of Americans when com- pared with the turbulence., revolutions end political turmoil of South Amer- ica and the Asiatic countries. This is the season of foot ball con- tests, and the eastern college boys look as though they had been run through a cornsheller. It is sport, and a dozen broken noses cut little figure. _ The people of the Flathead valley should have at least $25,000 appropri- ated for the improvement, of the river. They deserve it, and should insist upon Montana's delegation in con- gress getting it. A bank at Milford, Mich., has just, been closed by the state bank exam- iner, and the available assets were discovered to be $34, although the bank had deposits amounting to $140,000. The dispatch fails to state who got away with the $34, the bank- ers or the examiner. Major Maginnis has returned to Montana after a long sojourn in the east. The major is mineral land com- missioner for Montana. During his absence he made a few speeches in New York. Some newspapers, such as the Inter -Mountain, are not giving the major credit for carrying New York for the democrats, but he de- serves the glory. While the major's speeches are the Jonah of the Mon- tana democraey they may have the opposite effect on the easterners. Montana conk! spare the major if New York wants him real bad. Recent earthquakes in China killed nearly 5,000 natives and left many provinces in distressed condition. Add to this the reported invasion of China by Russian troops and China's cup of woe seems to be filled to overflowing. It is little wonder that the distressed millions of China and Russia, bur- dened by excessive taxation by royal- ty and unbearable exactions by church to America.' It is not humane to keep them out, but \self protection is the first law of tyltuto \ After a gallant fight Minneapolis won the republiean national conven- tion to be held June 7, 1892. This is a recognition of the great. northwest. which pleases every man. Politicians have heretofore acted on the prineiple that the territory embraced in the northwest was of little value. The selection of Minneapolis as the place for a national convention is convinc- ing evidence that a just estimate is to be hereafter placed upon the influ- ence, intelligence and political ttliter- priso of this great section. The re- publican party will lose nothing by it. action -it may gain more than its leaders think. Commissioner Carter of the general land olive ;stet ives a salary of $5.01I0 per an sum, whichis nearly tri per day, and the people exp-et him to at t moil earn his 1:alary. days of last week Mr. Carter spent in New York, wh,s, N%;.-: entertained hy the nits chants, geld 1,ng, and t-Ilver haters of the eastern mus. rtipolis. Duritet his absence the oilice of eom- loi , -ioner was prartically varatd nevert helms Mr. Carter will draw his salary for labor which was tmver performed.- -Mitt.' Miner. \Ve failed to notice anything in the Mite'r about the Hon. Martin Magin- nis' vacant office of mineral land com- missioner for Montana, while that gentleman was stumping New York for Flower. There is a consistency possible in all things. Both .Carter and Maginnis had a right to a vaca- tion if they desind, so long as publie business did not suffer. Politics should not blind any paper to reason. . _ At Carlyle, ill., an expansive law- suit. over the possession of a turkey has just been eoneluded. Two broth- er3 named Zachary quarreled over t he tr.vitership of the bird. One forcibly seiztal it, the other rtplevined, and the circuit court \Vat.; ;11)1w:dm . ' to, in- volving 8200 lawyers' fees t e s t th e ex _ penses of over forty witnesses. This reminds us of a trial that occurred at Oroat. Falls involving four tame decks. It co , t, several thoutamd dol- lars, and one fellow went to the peni- tentiary for perjury. There is little sympathy for men who go to court over trivial matters. Judge Scott, brother-in-law of Pres- ident, Harrison, says that the presi dent and Mr. Blaine have an under- standing that neither will talk poli- tics before the national republican tanivention. This will relieve a great, mental strain under which several score of newspaper editors seem to be laboring. It must I a prodigious relief to realize that neither the presi- dent nor Mr. Blaine will refuse the presidency in advance of being asked to accept it. The New York Press prints an in- teresting estimate of the vote no year. It, estimates that nearly 12, 000,000 votes will be cast, for the pr , '- ident, mid that of these 2,0(k),4 611. be maiden votes in a national contest. It, also figures that 4,010,000, or one- third of all voters, were born since Fort Sumter was fired on. ^ The distressing !tecident at the North Fork bridge last Satt 1 Y will delay the Great Northern ixack from two to four weeks. But the \iron boss\ will arrive at Columbia Falls by December 25, and probably end here for the winter. J. Burrows, the People's party man of Nebraska, has written the Missott- la Alliance that the Nebraska Peo- ple's party is not dead. The Alliance man should be careful about taking J. Burrows' word for it. VIP.

Watts-- I suppose that the French Will now erect a bronze statue to Bou- langer? Potts -Dunno. I should think 4 cast-iron Gaul would perpetuate him better than bronze. Tramp (after receiving a biscuit) --- Where is your woodpile, lady? Lady- -Out in the shed, sir. How kind of you to offer to split some wood. Tramp -I'm not going to split any wood. I want to find the ax to split this biscuit. \What do you consider the height of rudeness, Mawson?\ \Well I should say it was the height of rude- ness, even in a deaf man, to say 'hey' to a grass widow.\ Spatts-That man seemed to be pleased when you called him \Old Sport.\ Is he much of a sporting man?

There are 280 chess clubs in the United States. Ex Senator Ingalls did not fancy Major McKinley's speeches, because they wore not ttTsatile enough. The vicissitudes of fortune show that they were versatile emsigh to carry the day. It is dangerous to acquire promi- nence in South America.
