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.

WHISKY 'SMUGGLER USES AN AIRPLANE CANADIAN RUNNERS -SAID TO BE BRINGING IN BoozN BY UNIQUE METHOD In Old Days Whiskey Smuggled From Montana into Bordering Canadian Territory; Now Conditions Are Re- versed and Airplane Freights Li- quor into the State from the North. Crime has 'always had • its \un- derground railroads,\ or clandes- tine channels by which the laws of the country are cheated, but now comes a story of A sky route by which whiskey is being brought in- to Montana from Alberta and Sas- katehewan, neighboring Canadian provinces. A light bombing airplane, of suf- ficient power to carry 100 or more gallons to the trip, is -being used by those up-to-the-minute whiskey run- ners, arcording to report. The smug- glers have no difficulty in buying whiskey in Canada around $10 a gal- lon,. wholesale. They 5 are enabled to buy at this price by going into the drug trade. It sells in Montana at from $40 to $60 per . gallon and every trip the airplane Makes means a prof- it of from $300 to $400. - Flights Made at Night These trips are said to be made at night, and it is easy to imagine how a flight of from 260 to 300 miles, to a lonesome rendezvous on either side of the boundary, could be made both ways, in the course of a night. Making these trips by air means that the mounted police and border guards would be hentless in prevent- ing this traffic. In fact, it is possible to make this swift trip through the air, which belongs to the man who 'breathes it, without the knowledge of the officials. The border is wide by hundreds of miles, and 20 air- planes would not be sufficient to check this method of whisky running. Whisky running flourished on the border in the old days. The ancient headquarters of these smugglers was old Fort Benton, and most of them were Americans who were willing to risk terms in the penitentiary for the possible profits in the business. The trading in whiskey was a business recognized by law on this side of the line, but was barred in what was then the Northwest Territory. Pass Named for Smugglers A famous pass, in northern Mon- tana, much frequented by the smug- glers, is to this day called Whiskey Gap. One of the occasions for the organization of the Northwest Mount- ed police by the Canadian govern- ment, was for the purpose of check- ing this illicit traffic of America smugglers. There were times o,. when the Canadian police - re ac- cused of winking at th raffle, so general did it become, arge freight trains, carrying a ca+go of whiskey that was worth a fortune, made the trip with a safety that was suspi- cious, and resulted in parliamentary investigations. The traffic contin- ued to flourish to a greater or less degree, depending on the vigilance, or lack of vigilance, of the police and guards until Alberta and Saskatche- wan were created into provinces and licenses were issued for the sale of whiskey in hotels. Not until then did the smugglers go out of business. Police Very Active In the later years, just before the Canadian provinces licensed bars, the smuggler's vocation was one of much adventure and some danger. The police, stung by the assertions of those who would reflect on their vigi- lance, became very vigorous in their efforts to check whiskey smuggling and there was a time when there were more American smugglers in Canadian jails than there were in the business. There were battles, too, between the smugglers and the po- lice, and lives were lost. When the police got the upper band the smug- gler was forced to travel light, and an underground route was organized, with stations where the Smuggler and his cargo would be cared for. It be- came necessary, because of the acti- vities of the police, to travel at night and 'towards the end, in zero wea- ther, several hardy men lost their lives because . of the extreme cold they suffered,in order to assauge the thirst of their Canadian patrons. Situation Reverses Itself Now the sitation is reversed. Mon- tana is dry as a bone, except for the stocks laid by for this dry day. and which are rapidly being depleted, afki the raw stuff which the moonshiner sells. So our Canadian cousins are returning the clandestine coinmercial courtesies of years ago, and are ma- king use of the highest type of mod- ern 'transportation facilities to out- wit the border' officials. The new method certainly has advantages over the old. Then when the smuggler, with his slow -moving wagon and out- fit, as caught in the police cprcinp and the drag net was closing about him, which spelled for him a long term in a Canadian prison, where tbere'are no convict hrass bands and literary societies, and poor fare, he could either surrender or take his life In his hands and fight for it with the chances very much against him. Now, when the word conies Ilint the police are coming, the modern smuggler tunes up his high power airplane, loads his associates aboard and flies away across the border to safety. About all the agents of the government hear of their quarry is the hum of the whirring motor as It forces the pilule and its passengers throu h . the air northward. An hour or two later, possibly even before the office reach the Montana rendez- VOW! 'of the smugglers, an airplane lights in some lonely spot in Saskat- chewan or Alberta, the smugglers go their way and are safe. 'Their cache of whiskey on. the Montana side is probably found, and they loose it, but there is plenty more where it came from and it is better for them to loose a few barrels of whiskey than to go to jail. HEALTH.. JOUSTING STARTS MN. 11 UNIQUE PLAN TO PROMOTE HY- GIENIC HABITS AMONG THE . MONTANA KIDDIES Tournament Lasts for vo Weeks and Children Who Live,Up to the Rules May Acquire KiiiglithbOd or Leaser Rank; Fight Willie' as Well. Sunday, January 11, will be a big day in Montana—that is, in Montana homes where there are children with- in the ages of 6 and 16. For on that day will begin the big national tour- nament of the Modern Health cru- saders, and in every home where there are children of those ages, there is at present a great and fever- ish anxiety lest the precious tooth- brush be not in readiness, the drinking cup in easy reach of child- ish hands, and bedroom windows in open -and -close working order. The objest of the tournament is to incul- cate an understanding by the chil- dren of the value of habits of health and cleanliness, and the national tournament will extend over a pe- riod of 20 weeks. That the daily ob- servance of such habits for that pe- riod of time will tend to create a per- manent' habit in the child, is the be- lief of those backing the crusade movement. The movement is based on the idea of the knightly combats con- ducted by King Henry VIII. of Eng- land and Francis I. of France when they assembled_ their warrinrs in great tournaments, where, clad in mailed armor, they battled for the knightly honors. The tournament of of the Modern Health crusaders is conducted in the public schools of the United States and each child is given the opportunity to enlist in the con- tests and become a valiant jouster in the struggle against sickness and dis- ease. The old time tournaments were conducted for the.purpose of keep- ing the combatants in condition for warfare when enemies came to in- vade their country. ' Organize Against Disease The Modern Health crusade tour- naments are conducted to keep the children crusaders strong and skilled for warfare against the diseases that attack them and their fellows. A series of progression through various ranks of keig&thood, including page, squire, knigt isAlind knight banneret, awaits the young contestants in the national tournament of the Modern Health crusade, and the child who performs 75 per cent of the prescrib- ed chores each day during that pe- riod, or 75 persent of the total num- ber or - the period, attains at the ose the dizzy height of knight ban- neret and is entitled to the gold pin which is the insignia of his rank and all the other proud distinctions of his lofty position. Contemporary with the national tourney, the Montana Association for the Study and Prevention- of Tuber- culosis, under whose direction the Crusade in Montana is conducted, will hold a state tourney, covering a period of 20 weeks, and any five weeks of crusade work prior to or following the 15 week period of the national tourney. will be credited in the state tourney. During his prOgression through the ranks of knighthood, the child cru- sader is awarded at various intervals pins designating the rank he has at- tained, and rivairAis keen among the young contestants. • Supplies for conducting these tour- neys may be obtained by addressing the executive secretary of the Mon- tana Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis, in the state capitol building at Helena.

Montana one of the 18 capital ships now under construction In the government docks when com- pleted will be the largest battleship. It will have a displacement of 43,000 tons which is more than 10,000 tons larger than any U. S. battleship afloat. Its engines have a capacity of 60,000 H. P. and the ship will carry twelve sixteen-inch guns, each projectile weighing 2,100 pounds. The muzzle Onersy of each gun will be 115,000 foot tons and in addition to the sixteen -inch guns the Montana will carry more than twenty five -inch guns for torpedo defense. She will be equipped with four torpedo tubes and carry a large number of the lat- est model torpedoes. A scout plane will be carried abroad. A number of air-craft guts will be mounted on her upper decks. With these additions, the machin- ery of the fleet will have a total pro- pelling force eight 1tlmes as great as that of all the passenger carrying ships that ply the Atlantic, includ- ing the former. German liners. A large number of competent en- listed men in mechanical ratings are required on board modern ships of war to maintain these ships in a con- stant state of operating efficiency and to preserve their machinery and hull and fittings against deterioration. It is perhaps li.ot realized by the average layman that the moderrLbat- tleship is primarily, a complex piece of machinery, requiring numbers of skilled men in various trades. The number of men in a ship's comple- ment having only the qualifications of the old time sailor man, forth but a very small percentage of the crew. A battleship's complement is 1,008 men and officers and about 55 trader and professions are represented. The magnificent showing of the navy during the late war is to F great measure attributable to the ex- cellent work done by such men. Ar the work, that these men are caller upon to perform is of a special na ture, as compared to similar worl done in civil life, and as the demur for men of these ratings exceed thi available trained supply, it becalm necessary as in other special trade! employed by the navy, to establisl training schools for providing a con stant supply of such men as were re quired to meet the demands of th• navy. Such schools were establish ed where men are given six month: of intensive training before beim - sent to a ship. Any bright young man can attend one of these school! and previous experience is unneces sary. NEW INCOME TAX LAWS Forms on which income tax re turns are to be made will be mailer' from state headquarters after Jan. I to persons required to pay the federa' levy upon their incomes for 1919. Not all persons required to pay in come taxes for 1919, however, are known to the internal revenue de- partment, and failure to get a blank does - not - remove- liabi lug a returu. The tax law has made It the - duty of the individual to make his return and to pay his taxes. Though the Surtax to be paid for 1919 is the same as that levied for 1918, the . general income tax is low- er. Four per cent instead of six, will be charged upon net incomes up to moop, and eight per cent instead of 12, upon incomes exceeding $5,000.
