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.

Robetts will check up the business of the office of receiver of the Great Falls land office Saturday evening and become the receiver of the office. That will be in accordance with \instructions of Commissioner Dennett of the land office at Wash- ington, D. C., conveyed to Receiver Roberts by telegram yesterday after- noon and follows in due sequence the appointment of Mr. Roberts a few days ago to be the receiver in the lo- cal office after the shakeup of the office by the requested resignation of Regis- ter E. L. Barnes and Receiver Charles A. Wilson, the latter complying but the latter waiting till his official head was chopped off by an executive order of President Taft. Mr. Roberts, following his appoint- ment, under the old rule would have been required to give a bond $50,000 but the department voluntarily reduced the size of the bond very materially and he furnished a bond several days ago. It went through the regular channels and was approved and every - found to meet the requirements of the department and Commissioner Dennett took step yesterday to make Mr. Roberts register of the local office. Receiver Roberts will thus start his term as receiver of the land office De- cember 1, for he takes charge at the close of business today so that when the office next opens for business it will be with Receiver Roberts in charge. Sunday being the first day of Decem- ber, he will not open the office to the publicfor business until Monday morn- ing, though it is a pretty safe guess that he will be busy about the office tomorrow familiarizing himself with its duties. The office since been under the management of former Receiver Wilson who was acting on special instructions from. the depart- ment at Washington. He will leave the office this afternoon and will short- ly take a position is ith the Amalga- mated Copper company. Mr. Roberts is well qualified to fill the position to which he has been named and his appointment meets with general approval. He has been prom- inently identified with political affairs of Cascade county for some time and . served as a member of the Cascade , county delegation to the last session of the Montana legislature. He formerly served terms as county and city treasurer respectively, with credit to himself andl satisfaction to the taxpayers.

' Scott was arrested a few days ago on a warrant sworn to by Dr. F. J. Adams representing the -state board of medical examiners. The action came as the result of the death in this city of Ira Barkley of Stanford some weeks ago, when, it was alleged, he was under the care and attention of Scott who held himself out as a practicing physician and who undertook to diagnose the trouble of the patient and to prescribe remedies therefor. An inquest was held shortly after the death of Barkley at which Scott testified, admitting that he had provided medicines Tar Barkley and that he was a manufacfurer of medi- cines which he sold for certain ailments.
