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 school election is over, a good *an di as been elected; even if he does not prove so upon trial, nothing but harm can come of constant \ rag -chew. 44.\ Take a rest now until next elec- tion. t Senator Palmer of Illinois, one of Cleveland's most servile cuckoos, is warmly opposing the endorsement of pilver by Illinois democrats, and now Cleveland is telling what a great and good man Senator Palmer Is. ; France and England are now making faces at each other and calling names. There's no danger of a fight, however; the parley vous' would not take water, but England would, she lights nothing ibut savages or broken-down, bankrupt 3ations. Great heads. Rev. William Cleveland, brother of the president, has been mixing theolo- gy and politics to such a degree that the Presbyterian congregation over which he- presided in a New York vil. lage has asked him to resign by a vote of to 1.—Troy Times. Yes, and if a petition was to be circu• Slated asking Grover to resign the the job for which he is a misfit it would be carried by a greater ratio than 18 to 1. How the Butte Inter Mountain, Salt . iLake Tribune, and other prominent re- publican papers of the west can consci- entiously claim that the republican par- ty is an honest friend of silver passes all understanding. They are either de- -;e1 ving themselves or trying to deceive the people. Depew, Reed, McKinley and all the republican Josses declare that the party has no use for silver. In fact it is only the other day that Chauncey Depew said that the \ Ilevab- Beans will steer clear of the question.\ We hope that the close -down of the Golden ftenlight properties near White - 'hall is but temporary and that these Immense works •yill soon be running full blast. Elf the stspenslon of opera- ' Dons on these properties the prosperity of the flourishing term o: Whitehall will in 90 way be retarded and we are wl,ling to bet dirmonds to doughnuts that the Whitehall Zephyr will be found at the same old stand for years to come \blowItig for all at the usual rates.—Ba- An Times. Glad to have your good will, \ pard,\ 'and it is safe to say that your wish will be gratified, and that you will win all She doughnuts you can get put up. r - Washington adylces state that is now pr t! ally certain that \there will be no r artcipation by America in the pro- posed monetary conference, under the provision of the sundry civil bill. It Is regarded as doubtful whether the dele- gates elected under this pro•Ision would have authority to consider any question except that of ratio and. tree coinage of silver, and it Is said that Mr. Cleveland does not expect to ap- point any commissioners under this plan, if at all. ui not belleyed now that the mon etary conference will be held, but. If it is this country will either not be rep- resented, or else will be represented by tielegatrs se.).acted by th.f president tin der the gen7ral law. In other words the action of congress in authorizing the selection of three senators and three members of the house by the re spective houses of congress, and of three private citirens by the president will amount to nothing. This Is real. iced now by the members of congress , selected on tie commirtion, and the president Is said to have no thought of making any appoiritteents. \In view of the almost certalo failure of this move for an interha,tional con - ?trance. iv is being urged that in•ita• tiring ehntild be sent out by qt',.• country for foreign nations 1,0 join tic In a con ference to he held in Den - , cc, Colorado.

THE SCHOOL ELECTION. The Following is ()no of the Results of a Warm Contest. To the Editor: I hope you can favor me again by granting me space in your valuable paper to corre:t another mis- take that Is of Interest to many of the people of Whitehall and vicinity. At the school meeting last Saturday a gentleman quoted me as making the following statement in my school: \I have been told by the trustees to pay all the attention to the larger scholars, and let the smaller scholars go.\ I would say to the gentleman that I made no such statement, and I would further say that the trustees have never even Intimated that such a course would meet with their -approval; and I am certainly surprised that any sane man should entertain such a thought of me or the trustees for a moment. Now for the explanation: While talking with Mr. Noble on school matters at the beginning of the term he asked me to give the advance class all the extra time that I possibly could; \ for,\ said he, \ they will prob. ably not have a chance to go to schooi again.\ However, he did not Intimate that any extra time should be taken from the regular school hours, nor did such a thought occur to me. The other trustees never referred to the subject In any way whatever. In my remark. at the close of school stated that I had been requested not to neglect the ad- vance class, but I said nothing about letting the smaller scholars go,\ and the remark I did make was suggested by a conversation I had with an old expe- rienced teacher some weeks before. Now, it seems that some one has mis- understood or misconstrued my words, and has prematurely saddled the re- sponsibility on the trustees. I take pleasure in exonerating the trustees of any and all such imputations. They have said nothing to me that savors of partiality, and 1 can honestly say that the retiring trustee has always been ready to sacrifice his orn time and interests when school matters required attention, and no reasonable Man will believe that the imputation made last Saturday cat be substantiated. I be. Hese that the whole business can be traced to gossip pure and simple. I will now state for the benefit of the patrons of my school who did not have time (11 to visit the school, that my program was arranged so that the smaller scholars always had the advan- tage, both in study and recitation, and I am ready at any time to have the matter Investigated. 1 would further state that the extra time given the ad- vance class was taken before, Or after school hours. The school averaged 50; this would give each pupil (1 3-1 minutes each day, if taken separately. I hope the patrons of the school will study these figures carefully. I am ready at any time to discuss this subject publicly or privately, but I sincerely hope the trustees will not be held responsible by ycur humble servant. I feel justi- fied in saying they have been attentive to every true interest of the school, and have been conscientious In the dis- charge of their duties, and they are peer to any school board in the state. I do not wish to say that this exag. geraticn has been intentional, but the \silhouette\ they have drawn may re- flect their own folly in the near future: at any rate, the whole affair reminds me of the story of the \ Three Black Crows,' T.

A (holm Melange of and General Nene From tilt: I omit) [Special Correepoudence.) Boulder, April 10.—the Zephyr says: It appearances and sounds do not de- ceive there are many bluebirds, mead- owlarks and nightingales potting in an appearance.\ We can say ditto to all, even the nightingales, which appeared recently in the form of several young ladies, and we have no doubt the \ jays\ will appear later. The Ladies' Aid society of the Meth- odist Episcopal Church South gave a dinner and supper at the I. 0 G. T. hall the 3d inst., doing quite well. Boulder no* hears the whistle of a new steam sawmill, operated by James Simpkins. Loads of fine sawlogs are making•their way to the mill daily, and predict a good business. Boulder is to have several new build- ings this summer; among the most prominent will be the ins:lute for the deaf and dumb and blind, and some rail- road buildings—reports say a round- house—and several residences. At the school election Saturday Mr. George Cowan was elected trustee. Mr. Lees Taylor Is absent, and will be for some time, superintending the build• Mg of the Gaffney building at White- hall. Base ball has returned with the warm days. An exciting game was played last Saturday between the Basin and Boulder nines. The Basin boys got the best of the game. Firebugs seem to be In the vicinity. A few nights ago the China wash house was found to be on tire. The whole building was consumed, and with it many clothes belongleg to various citi- zens. Toy, the well-cnown cook, was so badly burned that be died the next day. The building had been set on tire previously, but discovered before any damage was done. This time the plot was a success. The grass is starting and severaNe- rietles of flowers are in bloom. Con- siderable plowing has been done. As warm weather begins prospectors start for the bills. Several new quartz dads are already reported, and this promises to be a busy and successful year for mining. Mrs. George D. Green left last Satur- day for a brief visit to her home in Oberlin, Ohio. Contrary to his name, the senator looks rather blue, but ex. ;nets to soon begin a handsome resi- dence, which lc to be finished by his wife's return. Miss Maud Poor is the successful seamstress in Boulder now. Miss Maud completed a term of Instruction tuber the efficient tutorship of Mrs. Glora, last December, and since then hat had all she can do. Afternoon teas are the rage now; Mesdames Gaffney and Belcher each entertained a number of friends last week. La grippe has laid up a great many of our citizens laiely There never wall a time when so much sickness prevailed. Two cases of scarlet fever are re- ported in town. They are in the family of J. H. Evans. Both children have been quite 0. 0 T. Jefferson county now has four Good Teteplar lodges and two Juvenile Te ples On the filth ult. Miss Clara N. Belcher, D. G. C. T., assisted by Mrs. Lena Johns of Elkhorn, organised a lodge at Clatcy, which commands one of the Sliest fields for work in this state —•lz : Lump Gulch, Clancy and Alham- bra.
