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.

June 22—With nearly 350 of the Roosevelt delegates declining to vote and hastening away at adjourn- ment time to . tender to Colonel Ronee- veh the nomination of a new party, the fifteenth republican national convention at the end of a long and tumultuous session tonight renominated Win. H. Taft of Ohio, for president and Jas. S. Sherman of New York, for vice presi- dent. President Taft received 561 of the 1.078 votes in the convention, or 21 more than a majority. The decision of the Roosevelt people, under direction of their leader, to refrain from voting, left no other candidate near the president. The announcement of the Taft victory was greeted with cheering from his adherents and groans from the opposition. When it became absolutely certain early today that Mr. Taft would be nominated without great difficulty the leaders in control of the convention de- cided to give him as a running mate his companion on the ticket in 1908. • Immediately upon the formal an- nouncement by chairman Root of the nomination of President Taft. the roll call for nomination of vice president was begun. Alabama yielded to New York and J. Y. Alcoa took the plat- form to renominate Vice President Sherman. Alcott's speech did not last three minutes and it was received with- out enthusiasm. Harry Dougherty, for Ohio, merely moved a second to Sher - man's nomination. All others dropped from the race and Mr. Sherman was the only candidate regularly placed before the convention.

While in this neighbor- hood they were accompanied lw Oscar Swanson. road supervisor of Geyser district, whose work was very sat- isfactory. The party consisted of Chairman K. 11. N1clver. l'homas Curry and Pete Johnson. commission- ers, County Surveyor Ben C. John- ston, and Wade H. Rogers, one of the progressive good roads advocates of Great Falls. From Neihart the trip was made over the county road to the county line and from there the party returned to Barker and Monarch. From Bar- ker the run was made across the Kib- bey country and into Geyser. After inspecting the roads in this vicinity the commissioners returned to Great Falls Friday. \The country all the way looks very fine,\ said Chairman Niel ver. - The crops still are in excellent condition. but rain would do a great good just now and will be a necessity in a few days. The crops of spring grain have not. 1 think, been injured yet by dry weather, but they must receive rain very soon or else the penalty will be a short crop. \The roads over which we passed are all in as good condition as could be expected, 1 believe. There will not be a large improvement in culverts needed this year. There will, however, be several strips of new road required because of the coming of new settlers. but we found a condition existing which, while it could be unproved, is on the whole, quite satisfactory when we consider this is a new country. and roadbuilding is in its initial stage.\ Notice When your watch needs repairing. leave it at the Purdy Trading Co., at Geyser, who will have it done for you promptly and well. All work guaran- teed.

Twenty-one days, have passed and cannot be lived over again. 'Nevertheless, in view of the fact that the best month of the enter - prize is yet to come, now is the time for new entries to get in and enjoy an even start. Just three weeks ago today the Times surprised the people of Geyser and vicinity by announcing that it would give away absolutely free a beautiful Stetson Piano, together with other valuable prizes. No such offer has ever been made in the city before and it could hardly be believed that a newspaper could be so generous. But this week we take pleasure in announc- ing that the piano has arrived and is now on exhibition at the First State Bank in this city. elle other prizes are expected to arrive daily. The piano is a beautiful instrument, having a fine tone. The case is finished in Flemish oak. The lucky contestant who wins • this instrument will feel well repaid for her time spent in so- liciting subscriptions and votes.

Mrs. Landry has made the greatest gain in votes, which puts her st the head of the list, with 26,175 ;Oise Todd is second, with 22,950. Airs. Murphy, who headed the list l ast week, turned in the least number votes this week, causing her to lose ;ler place. 1Ve look for her to regain her previous position with the next 'count. Miss Irvin's vote now totals 21.075, a gain second only to Mrs. Lan- dry's. These candidates are allwell Started now and we predict a very in- teresting contest from now on.

June IS the compromise rates in the Spokane case became effective. but only two or three advance copies of the tariff have been received in Great Falls. .11 the time the railroads offered to compromise the points at issue in the Spokane case. Montana shippers strong- ly opposed it. fearing that Spokane jobbers would be enabled by the com- promise rates to invade the field in which Montana jobbers operate. This apprehension was allayed, however by the railroads, which prom- ised that the Spokane rates would be the maximum for rates put into effect from the east to Montana common points. The Montana tariff becomes effective July 1. Because of this, merchants all over the state delayed ordering goods, as they figured that by waiting until July they may possibly obtain rates which still be considerably lower than the present charges, but that in any event they will not be greater than are rates uch In the Dark to Who Will he Likely to Win Democratic Nomination at the Baltimore Convention Baltimore, June 26.—With nom- 0 nations due to be made tomorrow, the satianton in the democratic national convention with respect to a presiden- tial candidate was as complex and un- certain tonight as at any time since the delegates began to pour into Baltimore. There was much talk of a subsidence of the Champ Clark wave which reach- ed its crest last night, but the speaker's campaign managers were not willing to admit that there was any wavering in their forces. At the same time they went to the convention hall with the expressed purpose of forcing the issue at the earliest possible moment. The opposition forces, hearing of this plan, prepared to block it. They did not wish the nominations to take place until tomorrow, hoping the simul- ation might clear up a little by that time.
