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.

Li Hung Chang has been asking great many questions about the po litical situation in tho United States since his arrival, and is taking a deep interest iu the campaign, says the ■rrespondent of tho Chicago Rec ord. Ho.asks all his visitors what their politics are and for whom tlioy ntend to vote. He says that ho is a republican, because Gen. Grant and Joliu W. Faster havo beon identified with that party, and he knows that they must bo right, becauso they are the wisest and the best men be has known, but ho declared today that he would profor to have Bryan eloetod than McKinley, because ho is a silver and ho would like to havo tho United States join China In the list it silver nations. i lie thinks tho silver nations should ■tund together and trade with e other to tho exclusiou of tho gold . It would be a simplo aud solution of tho commercial prob lem. ho says, if such a combination •uld be made. Tho depreciation of silver has embarrassed Chiua vory ■h, for the goverumout is obliged to l>83- tho iotorest upon its foreign debt iu gold, which makes- the pres ent charge double tho amount she expected to pay when the loans negotiatod, and it is a burden upon tho people, becauso they (wiled to pay gold prices for all their liorted goods. Tho viceroy thinks that England ino is responsible for tho deprecia tion of silver, aud that her policy is purely selfish. He says that ho told tho marquis of Salisbury that Great Britain could sottlo the silver ques- ion iu a day if she chose, and that ho ought! to do so for tho welfare of uaokind.

SMART TIME” That is \\ hat the ltetmliliraiis of Flat- head County Had inKallspell on Sntm-day Last. The Judgeship Matter Caused tho Big Eight—Mclntlre Won—Those \Country” Delegates were Boau- tlfully Beaten. It Is Said—Some Tho republican county convention of Flathoad couuty met lust Satur day at Kalispell. The story of the gathering is told in several ways, aud this paper has put tho versions a pot and extracted therefrom a general average. Tho chief contou- on tho district judgeship, three cornered fight between Grubb, Mclntiro and Pomeroy. On Friday evening' the Grubb faction, seeing that their contest appeared hopeless, threw 'their strength to the Pomeroy people. This they be lieved, gavo Pomeroy a good lead. So it did, so far as delegates num bered, but tho .Mclntiro forces hud tho politicians, and to use tho ex pression of ono of the Mclntiro man agers, \made dubs of tho Pomeroy farmers.” Kalispell was carried by tho Me- Intire forces at the primaries. J. J. Hayes, who is known by no other than “Jimmie tho Nibbler,\ a from Sylranito long ouough to arrange tbo primaries for tho Kal- ipoll republicans. Jimmie formerly hold the crown as tho “ King of the hoboes,” whatover that may moan, was his pleasure in former days to n tho politics of jvalispell. It was during tho exciting mayoralty days that Jimuiio put the frost o:: Mr. Hatcher by electing Mr. AVhipps ns mayor. / Therefore, it is stSWdy that when Mr. Whipps ut>eded delegates to carry things for his judgeship candi date Jimmie was called iu. That the work of Saturday was well done is shown by tho polliug of 326 votes at Kalispcll's republican primaries. Tho nost sanguine republican does not -laim more than 225 republican votes for Kalispell. There are some men an enough to assort that iu uroom the bowery there were lightning change rooms where thinly dad oters could exchange hats and •lothiug and thus exercise tho free- uau’s franchise twice or thrice. Anyway tho magnitude of tho g. o. p. primary vote is not worth dis it is to tho convention and its results that this story must relate. Saturday dawned with the'“county delegates\ iu tho lead, but not united. A rising vote, in tho abscuce of a number of “country delegates” (every io outside of Kalispell is called •ouutry\) resulted in tho first blood for Whipps-Mclutire, nnd tho selec tion of Sam Wallace as chairman. Tho committoo on permanent or ganization reported aud their report Adopted. They left out all refer- i to tho judgeship. Mr. Noff- singer then introduced a resolution to iustrucl the delegates to the state convention to choose B. J. Mclntiro for judge. A quick motiou to adopt the resolution, and a sudden whoop of “ yes” by those in ou the play car ried the resolution through aud tho dazod majority of delegates who favored Pomoroy had lost tho ton of trumps iu tho game. After that stirriug episode and display of gouernlship the rest was “dead easy.'' Tho minority which hud won tho judgo was willing to concede the majority a few offices. For the legislature ,tbo following on and votes were recorded: Win. Mooring 79. H. W. Reed 63, R. C. Pulmer 61, M. H. Cromwell 37. Aftor Mr. Cromwell’s dump tho others were declared uuauiihously elected. N. T. Conklin then handily beat Prof. Gates for superintendent of schools by a voto of 63 to 31. William J. Breuuan, tho slivcr- tongued lawyer and tinplate apostle, is chosen by acclauiatiou for iuuty attorney. For county commissioners, Fred Cooke and E. L. Prostou were ro- nomiunted and tho lower vulley fur nished S. E. Johns as the third. Messrs. Brintnall, Kiiumerly, Down ing and Fine also ran. Tho delegates chosen are said to bo six for silver aud six for gold. 'Only God kooni. They are us follows: Delegates. Alternates. H. D. Whiling Fred Cooke. Omar Hoskins. J. H. Foy. E. A. Walker. C.
