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.

The Colombian does not advocate the trial of cases before the public in News-papers while the same are in pro gress before the Court, but if ihe practice is to be followed it should be done fairly. For newspapers to become special'plead ers for this ur that litigant whose cause is being tried in the courts, and betray, by every word of testimony and every word of editorial pleaders, is to Insult public intelligence.

The legal war in Butte between Heinze and the Amalgamated Copper Co. goea merrily on. The Reveille has furnished the public of Montana with a verbatim report of the testimony on the re-trial of the world renowned Minnie Healy Case. .The contrast between the policy of the Heinze Organ aud the Amalgamated Dailies is very marked. Heinze seei anxious to take the people into bis co fidence. H e ' trusts them to read the evidence and to put their own construct ion upon-it, whiM tlia Amalgamated papers content themselves with the publication of meagre extracts most fav orable to their side' with caustic, often Terr bitter editorial Win Scallou, manager for the Amal ■ gamated Copper Co., camp to Columbia Falls this week in hit special car which was tent back and Mr. Seal Ion made trip to Kaltspell after a visit with some \o f the leading citizens of this place.

An exchange furnishes the following little story which points a very clear moral: “ Haveyou noticed the tine ad vertisement I have on the ferce wt town?’’. “ No,” replied the customer, “ but if you will send the fence around my house some day I will read it aud see what you are dealing in. Fact is, I ’m reading newspapers and don’t get much time to study fenceology. A farmer stepped into a printing office and said to the editor: “ I'd like to take yo«r paper, but. Pm too poor.” “ Go home,” said the editor, \pick out a hen call her mine, sell or save her eggs for i, and if she wants to set.let her, and □ext fall bring ine all the produce. from die hen. I'll send the paper.’’ When came he found he was paying the price of two papers. After that he found as never too poor to take a paper. Besides, when he wanted to borrow his neighbor's paper, he was always reading > he had to wait until the news was old or take it second handed. There Is nothing like taking one of your own and getting the news from first bands. Try it. A newspaper becomes great in pro- poration with its owner’s inclination, impart his individuality, his soul, in its every utterance. Society’s disposition to ape, too often extends to and taints the profession. We eee many really able, able men, hot so imbued with the notion that they must try to please the public, that they lose their identity as individ ual beings and therefore float along the surface, whereas if their tastes, stincte, intuitions were given free and sincere expression, they might be lead ers of men. The well-meant, but grie vous effect to please the public has i ed many a life. There is no clearer to exhibit manhood than through the expression of one's true sentiments. To be one’s self is to be original. There’ no living being like you. The subsidizing of the Press, for any purpose, is one of the most contemptible and offensive abuses of capital. It adds insult to injury. A subsidized press is proof conrlusive of the grossestinsolei 10 the public upon the part of those who turnhlied iho means. It makes honest conviction a commodity for sale. It, poisons llie very source aud current of public information. It tends to weaken and impair the confidence of the people in the \Free Press’’ one of the strongest safe guards of personal rights and liber ties. It tends to demoralize by deetroy- ng ths confidence'of the citizen in his fellows. It shows that the owners of tl>e capital so employed have a very low estimate of their integrity Of the people, and a still lower estimate of their iqfell- igsncfe.- It shows unmistakably, that the people who furnish the means for such purpose believe that if they hire enough smart writers aa s|>ecial pleaders that they can deceive aud hoodwink the paper in any milter of sufficient import to them. They deceive themselves The reading public of Montana can quickly tell whether or not a newspaper independent, fearless and fair iu its treatment of matters that concern the public.
