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.

Masked Rebels Kill Two Men mill Depart on Wheels, masked and bicyclo-mounted robbers swept into the little town of Sherburne, fourteen miles from Fair- mount, Minn., dashed into the bank, rdered tho cashier and a bystand- and stolo $1,000, mounted their whoels and escaped before the ey of tbo startled villagers. The affair conducted with all the bravado of the border drama, and tho killing of tho two, one of whom died instant­ ly, was pqrely wanton, ns neither made any resistauoe. Tho dead aro: . J. A. O'Stern, traveling agont of tho Walter A. Wood Harvester company, allot through tho heart; Cashior Therbui Bank of Shorburne, shot iu tho head. This crime is paralleled only by tbo raid of Jesse James and the Youogor brothers when thoy swooped dowu upon tho little town of North- 1, a few miles uortl) of the scene qf tqday'e crime, shot the cashier of tbp Rank of Nortbfield down and de camped with a largo amount of money. In that instance the rob­ bers departed on horses, whereas these criminals, in keeping with the time, used bicycles in esoaping from ' io enraged oitUons of Sherburne. Later advices are as follows: At a point about eight miles east of the place where he stopped and about twelve miles west of Elmore, Minn., tho posse sigbted their man about half a mile ahead. He had puuc- tured his tiro. They pushed rapidly forward. He was placid and fa­ tigued and stood by his wheel. Bqt gamy to thq last. Marshal Gajljop qa|led tq (pm lo throw up |)is hands, but instead ho leroled his revolver at the marabul, sending a bullet through his body. The bravo marshal lived but four hours. The desperado then attempted to make his escape into the corufiold, when Deputy Sheriff Braylon fired at him with a shotgun. Bound not to sur­ render bo placed bis lyepppp to km head and (pod, blowing a big bole through bis head. He died iustant- ly. Tho man killed is J. D. Sair, who was at one time at Heron Lake. The other robber is -iipnqrad to be Free! Pret t y Domestic Reasons Again. President Cleveland is not going abroad with his family at the oxpira- tion of bis term, ou the 4th of March next, after all. He has purchased sixty acre9 of laud at Heui]>stea^|, L. I., and in the e.-piy spring a modest little \cottage will bo built there. Tho laud immediately ad­ joins that of his close personal friend,ex-Socretary William p. Whit­ ney. Domestic reasons will mako it necessary for Mrs. Cleveland to spend the greater part of next sum- ---- :.. - nianuor, and therefore THE BEST THING That Is Wliat Moreton Fee wen Says of Free Coinage fur the flitted States. OTHER NATIONS MUST FOLLOW re Silver Would Simply Make Money Plentiful, Which Means Higher Prices. The coming of Moreton 'Frewen to tho Uuited States aLU»«9 time arouses a uew interest ii) th'e cause of sib throughout the east, inasmuch as he brings evidouce that Europe is but wuitiug for this country to take the initiative. Mr. Frewen is positive that free coinage in the United States will result iu the immediate opening of the Iudian mints and will force the countries of Europe to bimetal­ lism for self-protection. * Mr. Freweu's views are those of vague dreamer. He bas long been known as one of the deepest students of financo in Europe, an ardent ad­ vocate of bimetallism, aud at present vice president of the International Loaguo of Bimetallists, which has its headquarters iu London. The om gy displayed by tho bimetallists thi9 campaign bas, as might have been expected, attracted the atten­ tion of all Europe. Mr. Frewon thought it necessary to come to this country that lie might watch the pro­ gress of froo silvor more closely. He doclares that the election of Bryan will do more toward establishing in­ ternational bimetallism than tho talk for months of men seatod around table trying to reach an agreement between natious. “As soon as America opens her mints to coin silver free,” says Mr. Frewen, “India wiU follow suit. Whon the United States stopped tho purchase of silver uuder the Shmonau act, India shut down hermiotar Eu­ rope will follow Aiuorica surely ii bimetallism. The new prin;e minis­ ter of France, M. Meline, is a bime­ tallist, and many smaller European powers are eager to use silver,” Regarding tho statement often made by tbo gold standard men that vast quantities of silver bullion would bo immediately unloaded upon this country in the, event of the enact­ ment of (be free coinage law, Mr. Frewen declares that nothing could bo furthor from tbo truth. He asserts that there is little silver bullion abroad, and of course no advantage could bo derived from sending over silver eoio, Free silvor would simply mako inouey plentiful,” says Mr. Fre “That means higher prices for pro­ ducts, and whenever prices advance, history shows that wages inorease. NYhothor it is gold or silvor that is plentiful the result is the same. Why, right here, when gold was found in California, in 1819, wages advanced 100 per cent in a few years, betwoen 18M and 1875.” MOUNT SENTENCED. Judge Milburu Breaches a Senium, Moving His Hearers tq Tears, Billings (razqtte; The most ef­ fecting wane that ever transpired in a court room ooourred this morning, when Judge Geo. H. Milburn pro- nced sentence upon William Mount, convicted of manslaughter for the killiug of Frauk Stumpf dur­ ing the progress of a drunken row in Junction saloon last March. After Judge J . R. Goss, attorney for tho prisoner, had made at1 eloquent plea for mpfcy for tho condemned man on account of his youth, tho court read lecture on saloons aud crime that touched the heart of every listener and caused the tears to well to every eye. are were iu tbo court roouTUp- wards of 100 people, among whom several ladies, and Judge Mil- burn’s talk was of such a nature as cause tho stoutest heart to quail and tho brightest eye to dim with tears. Frail women wept aloud and strong men fquud it impossible to suppress their feeliugs. When his honor fiuished speaking there was i dry oye in the wbolp court . Of the ciitif* audience the prisoner was tho most self-possessed, and had it not boeu for the heart­ rending sobs of his aged mother it is doubtful if ho would have been af- foclod to tonrs, for bo listened to the court's pathetic talk without batting 'c, but as tho final words were pronounced and his aged mother's frail frame shook with emotion tho prisonor could no longer suppress his'feelings, and, for the first time, broke down and wept. As the court prououncod a sen­ tence of threo and one-balf years ou the prisoner, tho gray-haired mother lost all control of borself and cried out aloud in tbo auguish of his soul. Between fits of sobbing she ox- claimed: “Ob, my poor boy! O my, O my! I can’t bear it! My God, I swear bo is not guilty! Ob, judge, if someone must go to tho peniten­ tiary Jet it bo me!” MAGAZINE LORE. CeDtury for October is n vplumo of conclusions. William Dean Howells’ “Idyll of Saratoga'' ends with a mar­ riage which may be a failure—none can tell, not even the author—but that is the way with nil marriages. Amelia E. Barr's beautiful “Prison­ ers of Conscience” concludes with a death, but death at the end of a life well spent, a work well done. “Sir Georgo Tressady,\ Mrs. Humphrey Ward’s serial, begun lust November, reconciles its bis wifo and then lets him breathe his last in a mine accident, with a vision of tho woman be loved, not his wife this time, as his dying consolation. Ruth McEnery Stuart, whose namo is fast becoming a household word, contrib­ utes another chapter of ber charming sketches of “Sonny.” That young is “keepin’ company,” greatly to tho delight of his fathor, as well as his thousand aud one other frionds. McClure’s for 1896 will have a host of good things. “Captain Coura­ geous” will make his bow to the read­ ing public iu the November number. This is Kipling's first long pioce of fictiou dealing with American life. Stevensou’s last novel, “St. Ives,” will be published during tho yoar. This magazine will contniu all the fiction that Ian Maclareu will write this com­ ing year. There will be further Lin­ coln stories, recent pictures of Now Testament scenes and great paiutings by old mastors. McClure’s i right.

Nicolay has under­ taken to correct one of Mr. Bryan’ quotations. Is this the same Nioolay who wrote aoventoen volumes about thediscovory of the souroo of the Mis­ sissippi river, and called it the “Life of LinoolnT” If so Mr. Bryan would do well to fight shy of him. Ho is a daugerous mao with the pen.—At­ lanta Constitution. - was Col. Alox Botkin, republi- caudidate for governor, who at St. Louis declared that the people Montana would “rather vote for u cllow dog than a gold bug.” Mc- Cinley is n goldbug and Botkin is me of bis most earnest supporters. The people of Montana will uot have • ••oto for a “yellow dog,” but they 1 vote for Brynu.—Great Falls Tribune. All advnnco roport of tho Interstate commerce commission, for lira year ending Juno 90, 1895, shows that Montana was one of six states or ter­ ritories allowing an increased miltago for tho period mentioned. It not large—only 105 miles. But it m increase. Arizona led with 247 miles. Maine had 132, Illinois 188, Pennsylvania’157, Texas 110. The strike on the Canadian Pa­ cific is declared off. Tho company agrees that all men will bo taken buck except those guilty of^des- Iroying' properly or criminally jeo­ pardizing life. It also agrees to re­ cognize the O. R. T. aud its mem­ bers. It is understood also that no striker is to be prosecuted, Tho O. R. T. regards this as a material vic­ tory, and recognition of the order by tbo Canadian Pacific. Returns rnceivod from Georgia show that the total populist vote will uot oxcoed 85,000. It was 1891, showing a decrease of about 11,000. The tailing off is largely tributed to tbo capture of tbo negro vote by Governor Atkinson. Chair­ man Jones says: “The Georgia elec­ tion meaus a solid south as well as a solid west for Bryau in November. Considering tho fact that the Goorgia democracy bad arrayed against it tho united strength of tho populists, re­ publicans, the administration and the prohibitionists, a majority of 20,000 would have boon regarded as a victory. I consider the result suring Mr. Bryan a majority of not less tbau 60,000 or 70,000 in Novem­ ber.” Tho democrats swept Florida, car­ rying every county in the state. Fire at Guayaquil, Ecuador, des­ troyed fifteen squares of that town. Among the buildings known to have been destroyed are four banks, all the foreign consulates, all the hotels except one, two churches, all tho principal houses, military barracks and and arsenal. The town burned from the postoffice to the custom house, tho flames extending from the At Loganspnrt, Ind., St. Michael’ college burned. Loss, $70,000; in surauco, $15,000. William B. Rose has been appoint- edreceiver of the stock of B. L. Prico & Co., clothing manufacturers, of Now York. Liabilities $125,000. The membership of the Walla Walla Brynu club is now 1450. As tbo total voteof Walla Walla county is only about 3000, the battle for Bryau and the Elleusburg ticket won. Tho McKinley people realize this, and are growing sullen and abusive. At Gloucester, notice was posted i tho doors of the Cape Ann savings bank, stating that tbo institution had been closed. Immediately iws that George J. Marsh, troasur- of the bank, had shot and killed himself. Corning, Iowa, suffered $200,000 loss by fire. Sioux Falls gave Bryan his first caption in Dakota. It drew on three states for crowds—Minnesota, Iowa and Dakota. It was the most thusiastic reception the nomineo has had at any place of its size in the United States. Harry St. John, son of ex-Governor St. John of Kansas, died at Okla­ homa city-of lagrippe. He was ndcr indictment for tho murder of his wife.' Count Von Ballestram, an artist as shot and killed at Monterey, Cal., by a man named Abigor, who lived with him. Ahiger was arrested. He says the shooting was accidental. It is said that both men are well known in Berlin. Tho archbishop of Canterbury was seized with apoploxy after tho ser­ vices commenced at Hawardeu church, Londou, and died at 11:30 o'clock. |Losior F. Thurber of Nashua, N. ., wus appointed assignee of the Security Trust Company upon poti- of the state commissioners, and company has been enjoined from doing businoss in the state. Thur- bor will bo required to furnish bonds for $60,000. Tho reception of the czar iu France during the past week has engrossed public attention in Germauy to tho of everything else. The preponderance of opinion is that it bodes no good to European peace. Tho dispatch of the British naval reinfeorcements to Zanzibar has re­ newed iterest in the situation thore aud Is universally interpreted' as a’ demonstration against Germany, aa the condition of affairs in Zanzibar do not justify such measures.' \It it admitted thoro that Germany, bad tho technical right to remote Klialid from her consulate at Zanzibar, but the ostentatious method adopted and tho crowing tone of the Gorman press in connection with the affair, openly declaring that the measure was a slap in the faco of Great Bri­ tain, has aeted like a bellows to that country. The Spectator urges the government to immodiatelv annex Zanzibar as an answer to Germany’s unfriendly act. Thomas E. Watson is quite ill at bis borne iu Thompson, Ga., suffer­ ing from a throat and lung trouble.. Tbe czar gave 100,000 francs for distribution among the poor bf Paris during his recent visit, At Dassel, Minn., Ed. Gibney stepped on tbe crossing directly in front of tho incoming train bearing Bryan. The engine struck biur with terrilfic force, hurling the unfortu­ nate man’s body up agsiustthe head- light,«masbing tho glass, and the forco of the blow throw him 200 feet through the air. He was killed in­ stantly. Gibnoy was about sixty years of age, an old settler, an old soldier, and a prosperous farmer. He leaves a wife and six grown up sons. At Lexington tbs Kontucky Futur­ ity, for two-year-olds,' wornpt2,000 was wou by China Silk with ease.

This raco stamps China Silk as the best two-year-old filly of the year. Lady Soott, mother-in-law of the Earl of Russell, was arrested. The charge against her is criminal libel, preferred by Earl Russell. She was arraignod at tho Bow street police court iu compauy with two youths who are included in tho charge. An applicatiou was presented to tho supremo court by tho saving bank commissioners asking for an injunction to restrain the Union Loan and Trust Company of Boston from doing business. The appoint­ ment of a receiver is asked for. A Sad Mixture. Attorney General Haskell has sent to all county recorders a sample bal­ lot to bo uspd November 3, showing tbe position of tbe state tickets and where to place the county tickets. The republican state ticket, with Henry Knipponborg, Joseph H. Vivian and Frank H. Nash as electors, and C. F. Goddard for congress is in the first column. Next is the silver republican party, with Martin Ma- ginnis, Henry L. Frank and Daniel Brown as electors, and Chas. S. Hart man for congress. Then comes the democratic column with the silver re­ publican electors and no congress­ man. The peoplo’s party is fourth, with the silvor republican electors and no congressman. Tho prohibi­ tion and citizens’ silver party col­ umns are the fifth aud sixth in the order named, Tho prohibition elec­ tors are Wilder Nutting, Wm. W. Wylie and Wm. A. Allon. They have no state ticket or congressman. The citizens’ silver party electors are tho same as tho silver republican, but thore is no state tickot or con­ gressman. Tho ballot is 181 inches wide by 22$ inches long. The supreme court of Montana has decided that Georgo W. Reeves can­ didate for judge of Missoula district, was not regularly nominated by any convention and that his name cannot appear on tbe official balot.
