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.

Mr. Smith was engineer of tbo |~yu which Struct-; b boulder slido eleven miles west of this place on Nov. 30 of last year, the engine aud buggage car rbllmg down tho cmbankinont for thirty feet to tbo riyer shore. Mr. Smith aud his fireniau, Goo. Mc­ Donald, wero so badly scalded and bruised that they recovered only alter a long and painful illness, and the fonnor only partially, his injuries boing such that ho will probably never recovor his full health. It would seem that tho amouut asked for cau lie but a poor recompense. Mrs. Sidney Lanier, widow of the poet, is giving readings fftmi her hus­ band's works. The work of dyawtfTte^ aud buck­ shot is iu evidence at tho Leadville morgue, reads u dispatch of the 21st, where are five bodies yesterday full of the of tbo mountains —one shot full of bullets while doing his duty, two horribly mangled by tho dynainilo they wero usiDg to destroy life, and the others full of leaden pellets, received whili^ thay iro fighting in the shadows to de- roy tho lives of the men who were earning bread by honest toil. An addition to tbo death list was made at 6 o'clock tbis evening by the dis­ covery of the body of Michael Daugh­ erty ou the ground near the Emmett whore ho fell during the attack upon tho Emmelt mine by the riot- flushed with their victory at (he Coronado. Boyond assaults upon the working- on seen comiug from tho mino at divers times, no overt acts of violence been attempted against the Coronado till this morning at 1 ’clock, when a fow bullets slruok tbo barricade, aud the men ou guard prepared for net ion. Shots came scattering at first, then faster aud faster. All tho struts west of tho Coronado wore deserted, with tho ex­ ception of threo or four persons at­ tracted by tho shooting. Suddenly, nfter twenty-five minutes of fighting, a sheet of flames burst out, followed by a terrific detonation. Evidcn^y tho attacking party were using dyna­ mite. East of tbo engino house -'oral tuuks of fuel oil.' The attack was concentrated on this point, und finally succeeded. Tho engiuo room was soon iu flames. Firo ougines came, but armed men hold the firemen at bay. Meauwhilo the flames grew fiercer and fiercer. Tho men in the shaft house wore finally driven from tho fort, but fought to the last. As thoy ran over the trestleadozen shots wero fired, but thernon reached the dump safety hud escaped. Bert Moir and James Benson, both raiuers employed at the Coronado, killed by an explosion; identified by papers found on the bodies.

Successful Outcome nfthc Hypnntisi Tfrxt at Lexington, Ky. A special to tha Chicago Record from Lexiugton, Ky., reads lows: Edwin H. Boone, a Paris'boy, Wednesday hypnotized John I. Doug­ lass before a committee of citizen: and Undertaker Milwood buried him tho saino day iu tho Loxiugtou base­ ball park. The interment was made at 5:30, and at 4:30 this afternoon the subject was exhumed in the presence of 2,000 peoplo. Tho oxcitemont intense and the police were uuablo to -nrauugo the crowd. After the dirt had been taken off and the ail tubing removed tho crowd became sc excited that tho undertakers eatnc boing pushed in.

Tho river forces of the British-Egyptian expedition, pushing up the Nile from El Hafir, landed a force at Dongola and occupied that place before tho Dervish forci treating from El Hafir reached that poiut. El Hafir and Dongola are therefore both in tho hands of the podition, whilo tho Dervish forces covering the ' face of D o o g l^, «ho' \ * ■ » “ lay apparently lifeless. When tho lid was taken off the coffin thoro wc signs of any movomeut having been made, the blanket iu which ho had been wrapped remaining just left, the impression showing that the body had not moved in tbo least, Before tho dirt was removed, a ther­ mometer lowored into the grave registered 92. The face of the sub­ ject was warm, the extremities al­ most cold. Tho heart was beating very slowly and tho pulse was weak. Boone claimed that Douglass was the sixth stugo of hypnotism, aud quickly chauged him into the catulep- tic state, whou ho was dressed, liftod out and taken to the street car ou tho coffiu top. Reaching the city, physiciansexamined Douglass. Boone tho heart beat at will down to 45 and then up to 120 a minute. He loft him at fivo o’clock in what ho torwed tho fourth stage of hypnotism. The muscles would move, but still the subject was unconscious. At 8 o’clock ho awakened the subject in the presence of a crowd in tho opera house. Booue will bury Douglass days iu Cincinnati, and if successful will try a ton days’ burial iu New York. Douglass says he remembers nothing, is not liuugry or tbirstv. Ho is very weak. THE POLITICAL BOT. The independent candidacy of Judge I’omeroy does not seem to have surprised his intimate frinds. The action of the late republican county convention made Mr. Pome- candidacy a certainty. There ones ou the Pomeroy petitions of republicans who are against Mc- Intiro for no other reason than the way tho convention was managed. Ono republican said: “ When a resi­ dent of Sylvanite cau como to Kalis­ pell aud round up votes of men who uot recogoiaKl by our party as u who own their own votes, and kill tho will of business men aud tax- paying republicans it is time to call a ' alt. Judge Pomeroy’s run will be rebuko to such party methods, and icU u rebuke is now seriously nooded. 1 spoak as a republii ardent republican of twenty yoars association with the party. “Another thing I do not liko,” said the samo gontloman, “ is the fact that tho republicans of Flathead county wore represented as being for tho gold standard. Tho fact is, that less thau thirty per cent of tho ro- publicaus of this county are for Mc­ Kinley and gold. I know that if ’publicans should vote this county would go for Bryan and honest money, I have always con­ tended that when a few men assume run a party that party’s usoful- ss is approaching an end. The silver mou should control every con­ vention in Flathead county—that is jirovaiilng sentiment in all par- Ues.\ (Opposed amendment to the constitution wilj l)o submitted to the voters Nov. 3.

Tho houses burned be­ longed to J. McCall, M. Gregory, D. Burns, and oue empty house, ownor unknown, and were valued at $3,000, with no-insurance. Despite the presence of troops and tho unusual quietness of the streets, there is a very unoasy fooling preva­ lent among the more timorous classes; who assert that there are 500 Win- uot naturalized nt least days before (he election ho cau uot vote. As candidates are not named niuety days before tbo election, there will bit no inducement, if tho umond- incut shall bo adopted, Jo wholesale naturalizations. A girl usually announces her en­ gagement to a-*young man to her friends by picking • the lint off his coat in public. Ono of the most striking things noted during tho fight was tbo long range of tho enemy’s Remington rifles. At a distance of 1,200 yards thoy wore able to do a deal of dam­ age, and some of thoir bullets struck 2,000 yards from tho point of firing. Wad Bishara, tho Dervish commander, was woundod at about immediately (tarried out of rango of tho fire, repeatedly oxclaiming to those who surrounded ;in: “Allah is against Whitecaps have created another seusatiou iu Ohio by whipping a named Huutsman, who lives at Hol­ land Station, ton miles from Toledo, and burying him alive. Louis Gallott was arrested at New Orleans for aiding and abetting Bookkeeper Louis Colorab in d- fraudiug tho Union National bank. Francisco totally de­ stroyed tho large box factory of Hobbs & Co. Night Watchman Ross, 85 years old, perished in tho flames. Hon. Janies M. Ashley, ex-con- greSsmau and territorial governor of Montana, died at Alma, Mich. Tho iinmodialo cause of death was un uric poisoning froOTkidnoy disease. At the democratic state convention in Connecticut the resignations of tho gold standard mou wore accepted, with thanks and silver presidential electors wore then selected. Tho convention cf the national campaign clubs of tho silver party, originally called for the 23d of Sep- tembor at Chicago, will bo post­ poned until October 6, at St. Louis, where the democratic clubs hold convention. Herbert F. Plympton, phairmau of the executive committee of the re­ publican state control committee, committed suicide in his father’s house, at Wellesley Hills, Mass., by shooting himsolf in tho hood with revolver. For governor, John Boyd Thacher, tho present mayor of Albany, oj stato senator and Now York's world' fair commissioner; for lieutenant governor, Wilbur F. Porter of Water- town, ex-commissionor of tho court of claims aud political loader in north- Now York for many yoars; for judge of tho court of appeals, Robort C. Titus of Buffalo, judge of the premo court and former district at­ torney of Erie county. The platform: An unequivocal indorsement of the Chicago platform and ticket, aud a denuuciatjon of tho republican state legislature. This is the work of the democratic convention, which closed its labors at Buffalo last week. The Midland State bank of Omaha closed its doors and requested the banking board to take charge. Tho Rev. Sam Small of Atlanta, Ga., addressed au audience of 1,200 peoplo under the auspices of the a, III., Silver club. Thonddress tbo most logical campaign ad­ dress delivered in Pans this year. Fully 4,000 people were uuablo tc ob­ tain admittance. At tb» conclusion of tho address a number of McKin- •nt forward, shook hands with Mr. Small, tore off their badges and declared for Bryan aud tho douiocratic ticket. William D. Bynum, chairman of tho uational anti silver democratic >n)inittee, is wanted in Chicago im- ediatoly. Tho 16cal leaders of the party have been reading his speeches delivered in tho east, and declare that ho is putting in two strokos for his nomination by tho democratic convention iu 1900 to one stroke for the Palmer aud Buckner ticket in 396. The house of J. W. Northern & Co- Chicago wholesale dealers in wines aud liquors, was closed by tbo sheriff on a judgment for $2,500 in favor of tho Atlas National bank. The fail­ ure is attributed to the action of a Now York firm suing out a replevin for $6,000 worth of champagne, forc­ ing tho bank to refuse its securities. F. W. Humphrey & Co., heavy clothing dealors nt St. Louis, have executed a deed of trust to Attorney Overall to secure fivo leading credi­ tors whose claims aggregate almost 8100,000. Tho private banking houso of Gardiner, Morrow & Co., the oldest bank in central Pennsylvania, closed its doors, owing to tho general de­ pression of business. Thomas F. Suckling, clothier; Henry I. Bunker, moat dealer, and Charles F. Rood, grocer, prominout merchants, failed oa account of tho closing of the bank. According to the official returns the number of men suffering from yellow fevor in tho military hospitals throughout Cuba is 1,155. The death rate is said to be under fifteen per cent. The Noue Freie Presso says the in­ spection of the forts of tbo Darde- nellos by the Russian general is the sultan’s reply to tho English effort to force him to abdicate and also the response of Russia, which has taken the sultan under its strong protectAh, to England's face. A severe wind storm swopt through Salt Lake valley, but no serious damage was done. Trees were up­ rooted, several buildings were un­ roofed, and telegraphic communica­ tion was temporarily interrupted. At Ogdep firo broko out in several places, but all were controlled with­ out loss except ono, which burned the warehouse of A. J. Kiesel & Co. Loss about $50,000. BOODLE DID THE WORK. H od . M. P. Frank, the defeated democratic candidate for governor of Maine, said over his signature: The democratic party of Maine had adopted a platform which provecTto be in direct opposition to the Chica­ go platform on tho currency issue, and nominated a candidate for gov­ ernor upon that platform. After the national convention thoy wore obliged to change their position and put in nomination another candidate. The republican party had a thorough organization, and mean­ while had taken advantage of the situation and committed substantially all their votes to their policy on the currency question before the demo­ cratic party was organized on new lines. Tho disaffection created in tho party by tho change and the dis- rgauizud condition of tho party en­ abled the republicans, with their thorough organization and the un­ limited moans at their command, whilo tho democrats were without funds to pay oven tho absolutely necessary expenses of the campaign, to mako the gains they have over their vote of 1891. Considering tho condition of the parties, the short time and the limited means that tho democrats had, the result is fully as good as could rea­ sonably have been expected. Indeed, thoy fought u gallant fight against adverao couditions aud tremendous odds. Iu view of the above facts, the result cau have but little effect upou tho national contest. M. P. F rank . Notice.
