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.

' President McKinley must bo given credit for one thing. Ho isn’t afraid his person will be a target for the assassin. Ho walks down tho street just like any other citizen and is just about ten times as accessible as bis predecessor at the white house. Twenty of tho twenty1 four, policemen who have been at the white house will bo ordered back to their beats. Fort Thurbcr will also be evacuated and abandoned. Fort Tburber is the sentry box which tho lalo private secretary t the president erected outside the portico of tho white house for tho accommodation of his police guard. AFTER THE HORSE IS STOLEN. Governor Smith asked for tho resignations of Messrs. Bidftord and Colo of tho capitol commission and wbon thoy were not forthcoming tho governor removed tho gentlemen. Then Judge H. C.

The jury comprises: William B. Hundley, foreman, E. N. Brandegee, David Keouan, Frank J. Edwards, John Sturrock, S. C. Gilpatrick, William Johns, all of Helena.
