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.

For this state of affairs tbe en voys should te held blamleas. Their powers are limited by their respective governments.

It is a fair présomption that the combined in fluence of these powere will be used in a way as to induce the govern- EXPLAINING THINGS. “Insurgent”, as applied to the people of Colombia Falls by the Kslispell Bee, •with tbe expressed intention ol showing their hostility to James J . Hill and the Great Northern, is not justified, by the facts. In its issue of Aug. 22nd the Bee says ..--A ll naiy not be amiss I_________ _ _____ to publish tbe following communication from a Columbia Falls citizen, concern ing tbe etaitmWof those people during the strike. But the correspondent mis construes a reference made in these col- naans where “ insurgent” was mention ed. The intention o t the editor was to apply this to the town in general, for its •well known antipathy to James J.. Hill *nd the Great Northern, nothin any -manner meaning a reflection upon the strikers, personally. , The truth is, that while the people of Colombia Falls would like to see the ex isting monoply of transportation in Montana broken bv-the advent©! a com pleting line, they are not hostile to Mr. Hill, and if a monoply must continue they hope Mr. Hill will hold th* field. First tbe people of Kaiispell and later .\of H'hitcfish, for some reason best known to themselves, have kept tbe fact (if it is a fact; before the public, that Mr. Hill hates Columbia Falls and. its 'people, and in time and in his owiu way ' will do it and them to a brown finish. Times without number men-who were strangers in the valley, after having spent a few days in Kaiispell, have 'pome to Colombia Falls-and with bated .breath have advised friends here to quit the town, that it was under Mr.. Hill’s corse, that he was merciless and relent less that their sources of information were absolutely reliable, set. These statements have long been. ac- 'cepted throughout the state as facts-and more than any one can.-tell-have hind- 'ered the growth.-.and developement of the valley. Men with sense enough to make money will b e a n ie to invest it in jt locality whet« such a merciless tyrant 'is persistently represented ns discrimi nating against places'in which he is not financially interested and in favor of others whose citizens advertise him as an active partner, vftiat are the facta? Even though Mr. Hill may nevdr have 'defiled his boots with Columbia Falls ''dust, tbe relatious between his road and ' the town have been-uniformly pleasant. '■Its- people have not-pestered him with petitions nor commities asking upecinl favors, nor has he given them grievan - ces which made it necessary for them to - seek the powers of a court for redress. While on the other hand—well let the • disgruntled in Kaiispell tell what hap pened when tbe boomerang returned.

Its aggregate value staggers tho imagination. * * • What is bet ter still for the growers is- that the prospective demand for there rt-rsal and -forage products makes it clear, tliut .prices, all around, compared’with the hugeness of the production, will be high- .er than they have been since the “ war times of the early ’«Os. And as if ail this were not quite enough to assure us an abounding prosperity, the cheerful information comes from the .bteelcenttrs that the demand in almost all lines of production is unprecedented. * * • Day and night “ runs” are -now the rule throughout the iron-mills -districts mid prices meantime promise •exceptionally goo# profits. \In all lines of manufacture the sai story has to.be tcld—sn unusual de mand, inability to fill orders, wheels whirling night and day, profits good-and Workmen generally satisfied with their wages. * * * All these are only few of the many citations that might.be made to demonstrate the unprecedented activity in general industry and trade at present, ruling and the prosperity- that is its result end ia so generally in evidence.
