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.

Neistead Replies To Shelden Article (Paid Political Advertisement.) In last week's issue of the Bea- ver Valley Press appeared the paid political advertisement of Mr. Ray- mond Shelden, my opponent for the office of County Attorney, who states that he is 'pledged to lower the expenses of the office.\ Were it not for the fact that the article leaves the impression that I, as County At- torney, am directly responsible for the expenditure of the sum of $10,429.19 for the purpose of securing justice in Carter county, I would pass it by as merely the political advertisement of a candidate whose sense of justice and fair play are forgotten in his desire to secure an office. The expenditure mentioned evident- ly includes the following items: Item 1. Salaries of bailiffs and at- tendants (District Court), $240.70. Item 2. Constable fees and salar- ies (Justice Court), $25.50. Item 3. Jurors (District Court),, $3,608.55. Item 4. Jurors (Justice Court), $19.00. Item 5. Justice's Fees, $207.00. Item 6. Witnesses in District Court, _44,212.16. \Item It Witnesses - 1a Justice Court, $565.40. Item 8. Mileage andTraveling Ex- penses, Sheriff's office, $1,047.77. Item 9. Traveling Expenses, Coun- ty Attorney's Office, $513.12. Bailiffs and constables (expenses of whom are set forth in Items 1 and 2) are appointed by the Court; they have absolutely nothing to do with the county attorney's office. Jurors (the expenses of whom are set forth in Items 3 and 4) are called by the Court and serve in civil as well as criminal cases. The total sum of these four items is $3,893.76. If Mr. Shelden had the financial genius of a Roths- child, as County Attorney, he could not have prevented the expenditure of one single cent of that money. They are coats necessary to any court work. A pledge on the part of any candidate for the office of County Attorney to the effect that he will lower the ex- penses of the office by cutting down the costs directly chargeable to the bailiffs, constables and jurors, is an imposition on the intelligence of the voters of Carter county. I cannot honestly make that pledge; neither can Mr. Shelden. Item 5 '($207.00) represents the fees that all justices of the peace in Carter county received during the year 1919. Items 6 and 7 represent the fees paid to witnesses in criminal cases. It might be stated that it is the judge who fixes the Criminal calendar for the trial of _cases, and reference to the court records will show that on the criminal calendar for the last term of court two cases were set for trial each day. Due to the fact that the trial of one defendant occupied practically a week and the a judge could not be secured to begin the trial of the next case until the 8th day af- ter it was set for trial necessarily made not only the witness fees on ac- count of that case, but every case, larger than they ordinarily would have been. It was a situation over which I, as County Attorney, had no control. Items 8 and, 9 represent mileage ntui traveling expenses of the Sheriff's and County Attornera offices. With- out taking into consideration the in- conveniences resulting from the lack of modern transportation in Carter county and the long diatances that must be covered, I believe that Items 8 and 9 are as conservative expendi- tures as you will find in any county in Montana. It might also be men- tioned that Item 8 includes mileage for the service of subpoenas on jurors. The statement is avso made in Mr. Shelden's article that out of several contested criminal cases tried in Dis- trict court since January 1, 1919, there was but one conviction and that this situation was due to the lack of in- vestigation on the part of the county ottorney. To make the matter clear might state that there has been but one term of court for the trial of crim- inal eases in that time and that four criminal easel were actually tried, one resulting in conviction, one in which the jury could not agree on any ver- dict, and two in which the defendant was acquitted. Of these four allies two were on the criminal docket when I took office and it was my duty either to go to trial with them or move to dismiss upon proper showing to the satisfac- tion of the court. Knowing, as I did, that my predecessor had made a thorougn and consciencious investiga- tion, I chose to go to trial because there was no valid reason for dismiss- al. In the third of these cases investi- gation was made by an officer of the Humane Society who came from Bill- ings to Carter county for that pur- pose and upon whose recommendation I acted. In the fourth case I made the necescary investigation myself and it resulted in a conviction. I have written this article as a de- fense 3o that the facts may be known, and if there is any person who has read Mr. Shelden's pledge to lower the expenses of the office of County Attorney and has been prejudiced thereby to my detriment, I ask him to read it again with the facts herein stated in mind, and ask himself \Is Mr. Sheldcri fair?\ Respectfully, Rudolph Nelstead. • 111 i munnummenuilimmirmassamuum Listen Now to Walt Mason on the Dairy Cow. The dairy cow's a thing of charm; she lifts the mortgage from the farm, and makes the farmer's life more sweet, and sets him down on Easy Street. Where'er the dairy cow is queen, a country prosperous is seen, and dairymen, in Joyful ranks, are packing bullion to the banks. Why plug along, the old sad way, producing nutmegs, corn and hay, and putting up a bankrupt wail if one year's crop should chance to fail? There is a better method now—the method of the dairy cow; this cPitter always earns her keep, and piles up riches while you sleep, and pays the taxes and the rents, and here, ih Eastern Montana, gents, we have the climate, can raise the feed, and have conditions dairies need. So let us boost the dairy cow; which beats the old breech -loading plow; the Holstein and the Angus, too, as smooth as any cow in view. Let's talk of dairies, milk and cream, the safest money making scheme. Ekalaka State Bank Capital $30,000.00 - Surplus $15,06.011 ail Insurance • Your crops are your livelihood. Into them you put your thought, your energy/ and your money. Out of them you expect a fair return for a year's industry. It is therefore essential that you safe- guard them in every possible way. Of all calam- ities that may visit a farming community none is more destructive than hail. The raking fire of hail bullets will cut a field of grain to pieces in 30 seconds. There is no way of preventing it, but there is a way of protecting yourself against loss. 6 The \Hartford\ Iniirance - P - oliey - Way ••• Hail stotms have recently visited this section.
