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.

For over two hours the handshaking was continued and everybody received a pleasant greeting from two of the foremost sil- ver statesmen in the country. a * THE INCREASE IN PRICES OF BEEF .An Agricultural Department Official Are signs Different Causes Washington. April le -An official of the agricultural department, discussing the recent increase in the prices of cattle, which is said to be the primary cause for the increase in the price of beef in the country, says that it may be occasioned by the decreased corn crop of the past few years. The falling off of the corn crop In the opinkui of the *Metal may have had more to do with the rise than any- thing else Lack of principal food for cat- tle may have induced stock raisers to put upon the market more rattle than former- ly. Another reason for the decrease in the number of cattle is given in the fenc- ing in and the closing up of many of the stock ranges and ranches. The settlement of western states by email farmers his made stock raising in great herds less profitable, and it is said that the increase in cattle has not nearly kept pare with the inerearie in the population of the country. When the price of cattle was very low and the market was crowded, it Is supposed that the Seek men sold, not only the steers, but large number, of fe- males. which would tend to chock the increase in the following years. The com- petition in rattle from Argentine and Au- stralia has been something of a drawback to cattle men in this country In both countries cattle ca raised raised much more cheaply than In GIS United States.

A 11111EF HISTORY OF THE CASE One of the Most Noted Alining Contests in the History of the Country. The case went before the supreme court on a writ of certiorari issued by the supreme court against the United States circuit cowl of ppeals at San Francisco. John R. McBride Of Spo- kane appealed for the Tyeer, and asso- ciated with him were Senator Dolph of Oregon and Arthur Brown of Salt Lake. Counsel for the Last Chance are United States Attorney -General Olney, Charles S. Voorhees, attorney for the receiver of the First National bank, and W. B. Heybtien, attorney for the mining com- pany. Mr. Olney comes in by reason- of the First National bank being one of the principal creditors of the Last Chan'ce mine, the bank, by reason of Insolvency, being in charge of the , Comptroller of currency. This is one of the Most noted mining cases in the history of the country. The ground in dispute is worth 000,000; there is also involved over $200,000)v th of ore taken out of the Matilde by the Last Chance and claimed by the Tyler. The mines are at Wardner and the litigation has been one of the excit- ing features of the Idaho courts for sev- eral years. The case was carried up to the United States 'circuit court of ap- peals, where the Tyler people won. Then the Last Chance people went before the supreme court and asked for a writ of ,oesatiorart, and the petition was granted, an action seldom taken by the supreme \It will be impossible to tell the exact extant of the victory,\ said Receiver F. Lewis Clarke of the First National bank, \until the full text is received of the supreme court's decision. We only know nclerthat the court at Washington has reversed the judgments of both low- er coorta, and ordered a new trial. Con- sidering the law points that were involv- ed le this decisionei feel coqndent that this new trial will result ins permanent victory for the Last Chance.\ The decision means a great deal to the depositors of the First National bank and the Spokane Savings bank. The mine and Its owners owed a great deal to these banks, not far from a quarter of a million. A favoreble decision would give the banks a big sweet, and if things should brighten up a little that asset would probably enable them to pay their depositors In full In one sense, every person In Spokane Is financially interested in the decision, because the First National owed the city and county of Spokane about $50,- 000 At Wardner, where the sympathies of the people have always been largely in favor or the Last Chance, the news was received last evening with many mani- festations of pleasure.
