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.

THE RIVER PRESS. HARRISON'S COAL DEAL. The Thrifty Executive Finds, an Opportuni- ty to Turn an Honest ? Penny. President Harrison may not mean to do it. vet he is making a series of unfortu- nate mistakes in his appointments, and they will rise up against him with the staying qualities of a Banquo ghost if he ever comes before the people for re-elec- tion. The impression has gone abroad that in the matter of appointments he has more regard for personal interests than for the public welfare. Whether he does this knowingly, or merely permits himself to be made the TOOL OF DESIGNING POLITICIANS, is a matter of no consequence to the pub- lic. The fact that it is being done is enough to arouse popular indignation and to create a popular disgust for an ad- ministration that hasn't wit enough to take care of its - own reputation. A fresh illustration of the president's weakness in this respect is-fnrmshed by the late ap- pointment of two delegates to represent this republic in the American congress to be held next month. To the average citi- zen an appointment of this character seems to be an EMPTY SORT OF HONOR. There is no salary attached to the place, nor any special power belonging to it. Yet when we come to view it in connec ton with certain interests we find that there is more in it than the ordinary ob- server would suspect. It is a notorious fact that the Brazilian Steamship com- pany has for a long time been beseiging congress for a subsidy, but owing to the popular prejudice against subsidies of all descriptions they have failed TO GET A NICKEL. The subsidy scandal has grown to such proportions under former congresses the people determined to wipe the whole sub- sidy business out of existence. Yet that has not deterred steamship companies from devising new schemes for influenc- ing congress, and it has been openly al- leged that one of the purposes of this American congress was to further the in- terests of the steamship companies in this subsidy matter. In view of all these facts it is all the more singular that the -president should have appointed as one of the representatives from this country Mr. Flint, of New York, who is a director in the Brazilian Steamship company, and who has all the time been one of the fore- most advocates of STEAMSHIP SUBSIDIES. The other representative, ex -Senator Da- vis, of West Virginia, is not known to be connected with any steamship company, yet there is a peculiar fact associated with his appointment, which might give rise to the suspicion that personal interest cut a bigger figure in this matter than the public welfare. Mr. Davis is the president of a :arge coal company in Maryland and West Virginia. A peculiarity of the coal that comes from his mines is that it has an excellent steam generating quality, and finds its principal sale to the steam- ship companies. Pretty much all the ocean steamers now use it except those engaged in the South American trade, which persist in patronizing English coal dealers. The coming congress will afford Mr. Davis an excellent opportunity to call the attention of the representatives of the South American governments to the superior qualities of his coal, and by a combination with the Brazilian steam- ship company he may succeed in finding a new market for the output of his mines. And another fact not to be lost sight of is that PRESIDENT HARRISON IS A PARTNER with Mr. Davis in the coal business. If Mr. Davis will vote for Mr. Flint's subsi- dy resolution, there is but little doubt but Mr. Flint's steamship company will agree to buy coal from the Davis -Harrison com- pany. And thus the much talked of American congress will be converted into a \tickle me Toby, and I'll tickle you.\ OFFERED IT TO WARNER. The Kansas City Man May Be Commissioner of Pensions. WASHINGTON, September 14. -Just be- fore President Harrison left for Deer Park this morning, he asked Major Warner, of Kansas City, to take the commissioner - ship of pensions. Warner asked to have three or four days in which to consider the offer, as he wanted to arrange his law practice satisfactorily. He said that he did not want to be thrown out of busi- ness to become a pension agent or attor- ney in Washington at the end of his offi- cial term, ss most commissioners have found themselves. He wants to arrange his practice so that he may enjoy a por- tion of its income while he is in office, and at the expiration of his official term, be able to return to his business. It is considered on all hands that Warner wil accept the conitnissionership and that he will be appointed within a few days. It is believed that Corporal Tanner, ex - commissioner of pensions, will be given an appointment in the District of Colum- bia. Bob Younger Dead. ST. PAUL, September 16. -At 10:49 o'clock to -night, in the Stillwater peniten- tiary, Bob Younger, the youngest of the notorious Younger brothers, who were sentenced to life imprisonment for mur- der in connection with the robbery of the Northfield bank, died of consumption, from which he has been wasting for some weeks, and on account of which his par- don was recently asked of the governor but not granted.

Kimball came borne this afternoon from Helena quite unexpectedly and proceeded at once to his room on West Broadway, next to the Holmes hotel. He let himself in with his night key and found R. 0. Shinn in the room with Mrs. Kimball. Shinn at- tacked Kimball with a razor and the lat- ter drew his revolver and used the butt end of it as a club. In the melee Shinn got two cuts about the head which bled profusely. He was removed to the hos- pital and the husband placed under ar- rest. Shinn's injuries are not serious. Terry's Slayer Discharged. SAN Fasiscrsco, September 16. -Judge Sawyer, in the United States circuit court this morning, rendered a decision in the habeas corpus case of Deputy Marshal David Nagle and discharged Nagle from custody. A bill of exceptions filed by the counsel for the state was allowed by the court, and pending an appeal to the United States supreme court, Nagle was ordered released on his own recognizance with bonds fixed at 15,000. The Registration Law. In last week's issue of the Herald we took occasion to express our opposition to the registration law. Since then some people have seen proper to criticise the article as one inconsistent with our boast- ed independent position. Now we desire to be fully understood. The first issue of the Herald stated that it would oppose all bad laws, and true to that declaration we wrote the article last week in which we cited the item of expense as one objec- tion. The same is reiterated now, and we believe the expense will not be lees than 85 for every vote cast north of the Mis- souri river in Dawson county, instead of $3 as stated last week. It may be said that the politicians furnish money, but who furnishes the money to the political parties other than the people? The fact is the law is a bungling, burdensome im- position on the people in sparsely settled districts and should be erased from the statute books. If this law is one of the planks in the republican platform and a test of republicanism, the people should rise as one man and vote against it. It is seventy-one miles from here to Poplar creek, and a round trip ticket costs $6.50, multiplied by 35 which is the number of voters there, and you will find the car fare will amount to 8227.50; now add 81 each for board and lodging, which swells the amount to $262.50. To this sum add the average cost of registering each vote, assuming the registry agent re- ceives 85 per day, and (be law allows that much, thus 835 more must be taken into consideration. Now we have 8297.50, or 88.50 for registering each vote from Pop lar creek. Now suppose the people do pay this unnecessary expense in order to qualify themselves to vote, an amount equally as large must be paid when they come to vote. So it is clear that somebody must pay 817 each for every vote at Poplar Creek. Those who think that such an unjust law should remain as an incubus upon the people have but crude ideas of justice. The law acts as a practical dis- franchisement of large numbers of people who live in the country, or compels the candidates to pay more for votes than their salaries admit of; and since even politicians cannot live on nothing; if they spend their per diem for votes how will they raise the money to meet the expenses of living? Question. We are opposed to the registration law because in our opinion it is contrary to the constitution of the United States, in that it makes a new qualification for voters, besides being an expensive farce, imposes heavy burdens upon those who live outside of the cities, and by this means gives much power and influence to the cities over the country; for the simple reason the people in cities can register with but little personal expense, while on the contrary, It creates a heavy outlay of private means in the country and prac- tically disfranchises a great many, since we know from personal knowledge that there are many who are unable to pay from 815 to $20 for registering and voting. Glasgow Herald. Ma. B. F. O'Neal announced himself as an independent candidate for the office of sheriff. He asked for, received and ac- cepted the nomination from a republican convention. Now what is Mr. O'Neal, an independent or a republican? An inde- pendent is one who cuts loose from all parties and asks favor from none. A re- publican is one who is supposed to sub- scribe to the political faith of his party and hence has a claim upon its support. Has Mr. O'Neal any claim upon the support of an honest republican? As an independent. No. As a republican, yes. But as a republican no true democrat can support him. Again, what is Mr. O'Neal? THE republican meeting Friday night was not a howling success, in a political sense. Col. Sanders appeared to be handicapped by the load be was carrying. It was evi- dent he had no sympathy for or interest in the candidates at the head of the re- publican ticket. The name of neither was mentioned in his funeral like dis- course. That part of his speech which was not devoted to a discussion of dead issues or dreary platitudes sounded more like the wailing of a lost soul than like the words of a hopeful champion of a popular cause. Colonel Sanders made no votes for the republican ticket last night. MR. AND MRS BOWSER. Bowser Gres to the Park for a Quiet Out- ing, but Gets Roughly Handled. \I think we'll go up to the park to -mor- row,\ said Mr. Bowser the other Saturday evening as he finished his cigar. \But won't it be dreadful crowded?\ I queried. \There you go! You are always ready to oppose anything I suggest.\ \I am not opposing you, only you know that the boats are always crowded on Sun- day, and that one is apt to meet with many lawless characters. I have heard you say that the place was in possession of a mob all day Sunday.\ \Never! On the contrary I have always boasted how orderly it was. I guarantee that you can go up there alone and stay all day and you will be treated like a queen.\ \Well if you think we had best go, why\— \Of course I do. I think a little trip on the water will do us all good, and at the island we will seek some sylvan retreat and enjoy the beauties of the surroundings.\ \And you -you won't get mad \Mrs. Bowser, what do you nieani' \If things do not go right you won't scold and blame everything to mei\ \Have .)•, ;tone rmd? When did I ever blame you! 11 ) oa s...-pset that you are get- ting softening of the brain, let me know and I'ZI have a medical examination Alhs dinner next day sve made a start think Mr Bowser started with the firm de- termination to keep his good nature at every hazard, but something occurred almost im- mediately to upset him. The street car was jaisb full and running over, but it stopped and we wedged our way in In the squeeze some one stepped on Mr. Bows - er's corn, some one else knocked his plug hat off, and a third person was heard to re- mark that if he weighfd a ton he would char- ter a special car when he wanted to ride. This put Mr Bowser in trim to say to the conductor \Does the manager of this line think we are a lot of hogs that wa can be parked in an old ear this way?\ \Don't know, sir.\ \Then you'd better find out. It's an insult on decent people, and I for one don't propose to submit to it.\ - Thaz rize, ole (err,\ shouted a half drunk- en man fro..i the front of the ear \Go in, old bay window,\ added a second. \Ten to one on old Bowser.\ yelled a man from the rear platform. We finally got down to the boat. It was black with humanity and I didn't want to go, but Mr. Bowser elbowed people right and left and I followed. After being crowded, pushed, jammed, squeezed and knocked about for ten minutes I got a chair which a drunk- en man had just fallen off, and Mr. Bowser found standing room beside me. \I told you I thought the boats would be crowded,\ I remarked as soon as I could get my breath. • \Well that shows all you know about it. There's no crowd on this boat. She could carry as many again.\ \But what a rough set of people!\ \No rougher than we are. You simply want to find fault and make me uncomfort- able.\ In getting off the boat at the island some one stepped on my dress skirt and nearly tore it of!, while Mr. Bowser's hat was crushed down over his eyes and some one picked his cigar case out of his coat tail pocket. We finally got out of the crowd and wandered away until we reached a shady spot, and then it did seem as if we might take some com- fort. I began to express my sympathy for Mr. Bowser, when he turned on me with: \When I want to be condoled with I'll let you know. Thus far wo have had a real good time, and I don't want to hear any more kicking about it.\ \This is tbe sylvan retreat you spoke of, I suppose?\! remarked as I looked around and saw cigar stubs, playing cards, pretzels, beer bottle corks and a rusty old cork screw lying on the grass. He didn't say. He was going to, when a couple of young men came that way and stopped and asked Mr. Bowser for a match to light their clay pipes. He didn't have any, and one of them said: \Well yer needn't be so crusty about it. We are just as good as you are.\ \And a blamed sight better, Jim,\ added the other. Mr. Bowser jumped up, but both of them piled on to him and I screamed and brought assistance. They split his coat up the back, tore his collar of! and tore three buttons off his vest, and as they went away they threat- ened to come back and finish him off. \Mr. Bowser,\ I said after the crowd had started, \hadn't we better go home?\ \No ma'am, we hadn't! I came up here to enjoy myself and I'm bound to do so.\ I coaxed and argued, but he was obstinate, and pretty soon something else happened. A gang of five or six men came along, ripe for mischief, and one of them halted before Mr. Bowser and inquired: \Shay ole fel, I lost a dollar here about an hour ago, and you picked it up.\ \You are mistaken, sir.\ \Course he did!\ put in a second tough, \and he's got to give it up!\ \I haven't seen anything of your dollar!\ boldly replied Mr. Bowser, and the gang was making threats when I ran for help. Before I got back they had rolled Mr. Bowser on the grass, taken all his change away, and cuffed him about until he presented a sad sight. Then the policeman who bad come too late advised him: • \Say old man, you'd better go home. You've had five or six rows within an hour, and I shall have to run you in if you don't leave. You are evidently a desperate char- acter.\ Mr. Bowser beckoned to me and led the way to the boat. On the way down he was pointed out as Sullivan and Kilrain, and everybody had a gibe at him. At the wharf he hired a hack to take us home, and not one word would he speak to me all the way up. When we finally got into the house he locked the door of the sitting room and sat down in front of me and said: \Mrs. Bowser, look at me!\ \Yes it's awful! I was afraid it would turn out this way.\ \And yet nothing would do but you must go!\ \Why I didn't want to go one step!\ \Take care! You are to blame for this whole business! I have borne and borne, but the worm has finally turned at last. Make out a list of what furniture you want to keep and let us settle on the amount of alimony.\ We didn't settle, however. He felt better next day, and I don't think he will refer to the matter again unless I bring it up -De- troit Free Press. Town and Country. The case of a little visitor to the country, who rather missed the conveniences of the city, is cited as showing that the season's out- ing is not always considered an unmixed blessing by those enjoying the same. This little one had taken her first walk on the zountry road with her mother, and on her return to the hotel, being asked how she liked the place, said very decidedly: \Don't like it, 'cause there's no boss cars. I like ridin' in boss cars better'n walkin'.\-Boston Budget QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. Editor RIVER PRESS: Will you please inform your subscribers in this portion of Choteau county who Mr. B. F. O'Neal is, where he came from; how it happens he is on the republican tick- et for the office of sheriff; why the RIVER PRESS opposes him; who Mr. Samuel J. Heron is, and whether they are married men. Upper Highwood SUBSCRIBERS. September 13, 1889. ANSWER. We know nothing of Mr. O'Neal's ante- cedents. He came from Dupuyer last fall, sought and received the nomination for sheriff at the hands of the democratic convention and was elected over Mr. Charles Rowe of this city, the republican candidate. He was a candidate for re- nomination before the democratic con- vention held in this city the 22d of Au- gust. Mr. Samuel J. Heron was also a candidate. Before any nomination was made Mr. Julian F. Bard, of Dupuyer, of- fered a resolution in the convention pledging every candidate for nomination to support the nominees of the conven- tion. This resolution was unanimously adopted. Mr. O'Neill was beaten for the nomination by Mr. Heron by two or three votes. ()'Neal then announced himself as an independent candid ate for the office. He afterwards received and accepted the nomination for sheriff at the hands of the republican convention. He is, we under- stand, unmarried. Mr. Heron is and has been a clerk in a large mercantile establishment at Fort Assinniboine for several years. He is a married man. The RIVER PRESS opposes Mr. O'Neal because he violated his pledge given in the democratic convention to support its nominees and because he has allied himself with his political enemies to defeat the regular democratic nomi- nee. Personally the RIVER PRESS has not a word to say against Mr. O'Neal. ENEMIES OF SILVER. The record of the republican party up- on the silver question rises up to disturb them in this campaign, and like Banquo's ghost, will not down at the bidding of the stump speakers and republican news- papers of the territory. The old cry of the Inter Mountain and Helena Herald against the \fratidalent \short weight,\ \dishonest\ dollar is still ringing in the pars of the g. o. p., and their endorsement of Arthur's recommendations that the coinage of silver be suspended is still re- membered by the people. When silver wanted friends these same republican or- gans denounced it with that cringing ser- vility which characterized their attitude towards Arthur's administration. They would denounce it to -day if the democrat- ic party had not popularized the metal. - Mr. Chas. S. Fell,one of the editors and proprietors of that sterling journal, the Fergus County Argus, is a candidate for district clerk for that county. Mr. Fell has performed the duties of the office during the past two terms with such sig- nal success and satisfaction to the people that he will have no serious opposition in the campaign. Fergus county will have a most acceptable district clerk in Mr. Fell. IN his speech in this city last Friday evening Col. Sanders stated he had but little to do in drafting the republican state platform adopted at Anaconda. He said Col. Botkin was its author. This statement upon the part of Sanders saves him from being placed among the Eli Perkins and Ananiases of the day. It is evident the colonel desires to protect his reputation for veracity. OILY TOMMY CARTER will give Fort Ben- ton the go-by during this campaign. He is peddling his last year's chestnuts to those who failed to taste them then That five thousand democratic majority which the oleaginous Tommy corraled last fall will be cast for Maginnis at the ensuing election.
