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.

SATURDAY; Jan 7. 1905: THE GANGRENE OF SUSPICION. The following is in substance tbe woedaxf on eminent writer and ahould be- reaASad digested at Columbia Falls There is no influence quite so rotten la American life as tbe influence of the active or passive knocker. There is nothing so subversive of honest convic­ tion, nothing so inimical to frankness, mealiness and bold action for the right, as slinking iaduedo, slimy suggestion of ilM oiog and the forestalled acceptance ofgutit before it is proved. Cold justice itself has set an example even to Christanity to the end that each an-shall bo regarded as guiltless un­ til his sin is proved. To damn men bv minor, to approve thelrdamnation upon , Hte flimsy testimony of gossip, to judge /by-hearsay and to condemn without ^ultftnatat* evidence, is typical and ex­ pressive of meanness iguorance and'big­ otry. There are times when accusations corns from seemly high pieces that com­ mand belief by reason of their origin; there is never a time when the debased are not barling abuse and anathemas at those better then themselves. There is ne merit either in accusation or defense except in the truth of either. \The man who does a corrupt act is no more a public enemy thaiv-the man . who charges one without being able 'morally, if not legally, to prvoe it.\ M a tters o f Interest to R eaders o f H o m e T o p i c s .
