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.

Murder in Butte is becoming such a frequent occurrence that if one does pot read of oneat least once a week it seems as thoughsometbingwere lacking In the daily roper. This paper would not suggest the formation of a Valiance committee in Butte for various reasons, one of which might be stated as its be- ing none of our business.

Theettopultsta Of Spokane.

When accused by the commissioners of being a defaulter, he brazenly claimed that his salary was insufficient and that be had to have some spending money. Oh, you office holders, ye are the servants of the people, but you lead them a merry . dance. Spokane has been eltigularly unfortunate in this respect, and through defaulters and film-nam games by var- ious officials has lost a sum in the teat five years that will take six figures to express, and not the smaller ones either, ity the way, Mr. D. is a republican.
