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.

GEYSER, MONT., OCT. 24, 1912 - - ox -so • 05 NO. 32 Democrats Hold Rally County Candidates Tell Geyserites Why They Should Be Elected Next Month The democratic meeting held here Friday drew a good sized crowd of people from Geyser and surrounding country, including a large porportion of women who came to enjoy the dance and general good time adveretised. A large number of the candidates on the democratic county ticket were present. but the main speaker of the evening, Mr. Stephen J. Cowley, as- sistant county attorney, of Great Falls, failed to put in an appearance, much to the disappointment of the crowd and the chagrin of the candidates who depended upon him to do the talking for the bunch. A. A. Freseman, Jr.. presided as chairman of the meeting and intro- duced as the first speaker, Frank C. Murray of Great Falls, candidate for representative. After apologizing for the non-appearance of the regular speaker, reviewed the ticket nominated by the democrats, making reference Thomas J. ‘Valsh of lIelena, who the democratic candidate for U. senator. He spoke of the opportun- ity the people have in this election to elect their senator by popular vote and that each of the democratic candidates had signed - Statement No. 1 - and filed same with the county clerk, which provides that they will vote to elect the candidate for United States senator w ho receives the highest popu- lar vote, regardless of party affiliation. NIr. Murray then reviewed the candidates for the legislature and laid stress on the fact that they represent especially the farmer and working men. NI r.

Albert J. Fousek, can- , didate for sheriff, was present and made a few remarks. Mr. Fousek is. and has served several terms as alder- man in that city. He promised if, elected to the office to perform the : duties faithfully, day or night, when- ever he Might be called on—even on Stockmen Returning From Chicago Say Th.y Received a Higher Price Than Expected A number of the shippers who re- cently went with their cattle to Chicago have returned and we are informed that they were well satisfied with the prices:at which their stock sold on the Chicago market. About the time the shipment was made the market took a drop of about 50 cents and they , were afraid they would not get the high prices that prevailed for several weeks pre sous. but the drop proved to be of short duration. 'Ube prices received . by the local N shi users for their tops were from $8.00 a cigar manufacturer in Great Falls I to $8.35 in most cases, while others with poorer cattle received in the neighborhood of $7.50 to $7.85. Cows and heifers brought $6.00 to $6.35 in most cases. Steers shipped from here Sunday. He was the unsuccessful can- ' averaged about 1,300 Ills.A recent shipment of grass fed range steers raised in the vicinity of Great Falls brought the top market price for the day of sale, $9.85, while it is said that a bunch of Canadian steers, grass fed, brought $10.25. These prices are the highest ever dreamed of for range cattle, and are didate two years ago. William Hall, the candidate for auditor, had a better singing than tu speaking voice and in company w ith 's Messrs. Murray, Gillin and ‘Voods S. rendered a number of pleasing songs. F. A.Tmtinger. candidate for clerk and recorder, gave as a recommendation causing growers to ship everything in for himself as a candidate for that I office that he had ridden the 'range across this part of the county even be- ! fore old Geyser was thoie 4 lit of and considered that he was eligible to eat , at the county pie counter. All the candidates emphasized the fact in their remarks that they are old time residents in the county and thoroughly familiar with the duties of the offices to which they aspire.
