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.

Roosevelt Wins Ohio Carries Presidential Preference Pri- maries in Taft's Home State by 25,000 Plurality With the result of the Presidential primaries in Ohio known, it is now claimed by both Taft and Roosevelt that they will have more than enom h , delegates to the National Convention to elect on the First ballot. According to returns at hand Wed- nesday night, from approximately 4.500 of the 5,192 precincts in Ohio, Colo- nel Roosevelt's delegates to the Nation- al Republican Convention carried the primaries Tuesday by a plurality of 25, 000 giving him approximately 32 of the 42 district delegates. The result of the fight over the half dozen dele- gates at large will not be known until June 3, when the state convention meets. President Taft now claims 570 out of the 1,078 delegates to the Chicago convention. or 30 more than it will take to nominate. Senator Dixon, Colonel Roosevelt's manager was equally jubi- lant, making the statement that the Colonel would be nominated on the first ballot. The fight is now carried to New Jersey, where next Friday. the people will express their choice for pres- idential candidate. Taft, Roosevelt, LaFollette and Wilson all have complete lists of dis- trict delegates and delegates at large on the New Jersey ballot. Notice—Brands THE. ESI(3 FOUR \THIRTY• ENGINE THE WORLD'S GREATES WHEAT PRIZE $5,000. Five thousand dollars for the best fi've bushels of wheat, any variety, grown in the American Northwest is the prize announced as the grand champion sweepstakes to be awarded at the Northwestern Products Exposition to be held , in Minneapolis November 12 to 23. The prize consists of a ig Four \30\ farm tractor manufactured by the !Gas Traction Company of Minneapolis and Winnipeg, and a set of plows manufactured by the Emerson Brantingham Plow Company of Rockford, Ill. 'These companies desiring to encourage farmers of the northwest to grow more and better wheat, have given theleiagweetisi outfit for certain considerations and the seven states will compete for the sweepstakes prize. Winning this prize means that wheat awarded prizes at seven state fairs and scores of county fairs will be selected fir a process of elimination and finally 13y an act of the 1911 legislature all owners of brands are required to re- record their brands by November 1. 1912. Any failure of owners to re -1 record will be considered an abandon- ment of the brand and it will be open! for record for anyone applying. The fee for re-recording is 25 cents per brand. I). W. RAYMOND, Recorder of Marks and Brands, 5-9-6 Helena. Mont. entered at the Northwestern Products Exposition in the grand champion sweepstakes class. There will be nothing in the rules, however, to prevent a l grower exhibiting wheat which has not been shown at an fair, but which will I be entered for the first time to win the $5,000 prize. Judging of the wheat will be done by the accepted authorities on wheat judging in the United States. The Big Four - 30\ farm tractor and plows were selected for a prize be- cause of their practicability . . There is no agency which is playing a more important parr in the development of the northwest than the modern farm tractor. All over these sey en states the giant horses are cutting the broad prairies into fertile farms. The wheat fields are already dotted with them. Every tractor placed in the Northwest will turn hundreds of acres of prairie into productive farms, making homes for settlers, creating traffic and new wealth. 1 Full particulars will be sent on request by addressing Will A.

Eight More for Mr. Taft Montana Republicans Will Send Solid Delegation to Chicago Favoring Taft The republican state convention at Livingston last Thursday was a com- plete victory for Taft people. There were four test votes showing the com- parative strength of the two factions in the convention, the Taft side winning all, of course, the votes • being 409 to 244, 419 to 236. 431 to 235 and 422 to 232. The Roosevelt ticket for Chicago delegates, headed by Joseph M. Dix- on, was defeated and the Taft ticket elected. While the the delegates were not definitely pledged they are request- ed to use all honorable means to secure the nomination of Taft and all of the delegates are pronounced Taft men. The platform strongly endorses the administration of President Taft but makes no mention of Senator Dixon. LaFollette also failed of a mention in the convention at the hands of any speaker. The delegates chosen to the national convention are as follows: 0. M. Lanstrum, Lewis and Clark. Edward Donlan, of Missoula. D. J. Charles of Silver Bow. George T. Baggs, of Ravalli.

Boosts the Northwest DeveloPment League Issues Some New Literature—Offers Big Wheat Prize The Northwest Development league which comprises the seven northwest states, has determined to carry on a vigorous campaign to direct the atten- tion of the world to the great opportu- nities for getting a free home in the northwest section of the United States, either by complying with the home- stead laws of the government or by buying land at a reasonable figure. It has recently issued a lot of new litera- ture in which it points out some of the facts concerning the country as a great grain producing section. It also makes known that the league will award a $5,000 prize to the grower of the best wheat shov.n next fall at the Minne- apolis land show. Here is one of the circulars sent out Complete: \If a section of our country which contains but 20 per cent of the area of the United States and but 6 per cent of its population produces 35 per cent of the wheat; 38 per cent of the bar- ley, 28 per cent of the wool and 92 per cent of the flaxseed each year, it ought to be as good a section as there is in the world for a home. - That is just what the American northwest has been doing each year and figures just compiled by the North- west Development league show that there are still 82,000.000 acres of froe government land in the section while , there are more than 73,000.000 acres of state and privately owned land in the seven states for sale at $20 an acre and under. \Last year one of these states pro- duced the best bushel of wheat in the world and attracted widespread alien- tion; another grew the best 25 boxes of apples and still another grew the hest bushel of potatoes. - All these prizes (Continued on page 4) p r-- , ,• .
