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.

For the first time in the history of Whitehall the saloons were closed all during Sunday last, it being the first Sunday since the new Sunday-cloking ordinance be- came effective. The day was a pleasant one, the whole town was quiet to an unusual degree, and everybody was on their, good be - There was oothirak_todis 4 turb the peace and quiet of the beautiful Sunday morning, noth- hing to prevent one from hearing the.elailiThAselis ring or attending the - services; nothing-to_prerent the saldon man having a day of rest and recreation, and some of them did enjoy , such a day. We believe everybody, both in town and country, who strictly--oln serves one day in seven as a rest day, is better off financially and otherwise, just as we believe that the workers in shops and factories are better off at the close of year's toil for has - tog - worked only eight hours per day instead of tam, hav- ing at the same time done more and better work than when the work -day was two limas longer. The democratic leader of the house of representatives, Mr. Champ Clark of Missouri. refering to events which occurred in the house last Friday and Saturday. is quoted as eating, \The repub- licans are on the toboggun,alide and if democrats outside of con- gress will get togethee as the dem- ocrats of the house have gotten together, our victories this year and in 1912, will be as sweeping as those of 1800 and 189'2.\ Some present indications point toward the fullfilment of Clark's prophe- cy; but Mr. Clark must remember that corraling a band of insurgents in the house is a trivial matter wheocompered tea national round- up of denioearts. The house of representatives having clecided that Speaker Can- non has been responsible for all the sins of that body during his long service in the chair, and hav- ing shorn him of all power, it is up to the house to get busy and prove to the satisfaction of the country that they are not simply trying to make a scapegoat of the speaker. Speaker Cannon refers to it as the \hybrid majority.\ Possitily he is wrong. It may be simply what Champ Clark calls \getting together. \We are it nation of prodigal',\ says the New York Times. No wonder the fatted calf comes high. Montaaa Mention. John L. Bright has secured a 25 -year electric light franchise in Lewistown. Judge John B. Clayburg of Helena has annoyneed himself a candidate for chief justice of the supreme court. State Superintendent Harmon addressed the students of the Ag- ricultural college at Bozeman last Friday on the value of manual training. Peary and Cook clnini they dis- covered the pole, but a Miles City teacher discovered four polecats in her school room the other mor- ning; and she eidn't have to pre- pare her evidence. Sheridan's town council has adopted an ordinance which pro- vides that one saloon license shall be granted to 5,000 population, and then only by a majority vote of the tax -paying freeholders. SUNLIGHT. WHITEHALL, MONTAN*. ' FRIDAY. MARCH 23. 1210. THIRTEENTH CENSUS. THE ENUMERATION WILL BEGIN APRIL FIFTEENTH. AccuraLy and Completeness Neces- sary to Statistical Value. _ ,- Butte, March 21.—The census bureau is particularly desirous of securing the support of all public organizations, newspapers and eIat liantslofffy in obtaining a proper enumeration of the people, the livestock hold- ing, farm areas, and the agri- cultural products, in the state of Montana. In this progressive mot - wealth, boards of chambers of commerce, ete.,news- papers and public-spirited citizens should aid in every way possible, in making the enumeration accur- ate and complete, because of the great advertizing poesibilities, the material gathered by the enumer- ators will afford. if the work is properly done. The census enu mention begins April 15, and under the law, must be completed in cities which had a population of more than 5000 in 100u, within fifteen daya, and in other districts within thirty days. Harold Blake, supervisor of ceases for the first district of Montana, which includes the coun- ties of Jefferson, Madison.11eaver- heed, Silver Bow, Deer bodge. Powell, Granite, MissoulteRavalli, Sanders, Flathead, and Liucoln, in an intervew today, urged the co- operation of all loyal Montseene, in this great work. Mr. Blake said: \The director of the census has authorized the Payment of six dollars a day to rural enumerators in Montana, the highest compensation permissible under the law. In the cities of Butte, Missoula, Anaconda, Kal- ispell, Hamilton, Dillon, and Deer: Lodge, the pay to be three cents for each inhabitant enumerated, and ten cents for each barn and inclosure containing livestock not on farms. Country enumerators are confined to eight hours a day, but city enumerators are at liber- ty to work as many hours over eight as they may see fit. The census taker In the rural districts Will in most cases,be com- pelled to spend much time away from their homes, while those having city districts, will not; thus the rates of compensation estab- lished by. the director, make it possible for city enumerators to earn about as large a salary as those employed in the country. The two supervisors' districts of Montana are now fairly well or- ganized, and as a rule a splendid class of enumerators has been secured for the work. Every ef- fort is being made to secure the people that any information given to enumerators is absolutely con- fidential,and any disclosures there- of will result in immediate prose- cution of the guilty person or per - sons. The president has issued a proclamation calling attention to this fact, and the director of the census, and the Montana super- visors are endeavoring to let the people know that the census quest- ions have no other object than to obtain statistical information, and that no person's life, liberty or property will suffer any injurious consequences whatever, as the result of his giving willing, com- plete and truthful answer. to the enumerator. This information which will be colleeted in the first district dy 1 . 85 enumerators, and a tr;inber of special agents from the eenius bureau, will be tabulated in Washington. and issued in bul- letin form for publication as soon as possible. \This great , state with its salu- brious climate, its millions of acres of inimansely productive soil, its vast timber and mineral resources, its superb citizenship, should and will show a remarkable growth. Perhaps the statistics of the thirteeth census, which, of course, will be given the closest scrutiny, will show that the Treasure State has nods 114 Arreekikt-44111111gLosi ate gains of any state in the union. I believe that every citizen , appre ? ciates what it means. to Montana to have the census work properly done, and Mr. Leon Shaw, super - r ol.lbe mowed distrieLef.Mcm, tans, which includes the rest of the state, and myself most earnest- ly seek the hearty cooporatioe of all public-spirited eitizens, chain - bees of coninieree.boards . of trade, oti. - , -- ind - the press, toh end that the thirteenth census will be what it should be—accurate and com- plete. liaM)LU BLAKE Supervisor. MONTANA LIVE STOCK CENSUS. Supervisor Harold Bike Adis tot Cooperation by Operators. Butte, March I8.—The U. S. census bureau is making extensive oreparations to ascertain the ap- proximately exact number and value of live -stock on the ranges to the United States op April Ibth next, the date of the live -stock in- ventory, as required by the act of congress providing for the thir- teenth United States census. It has been decided by the cen- sus director that the most practic- al und effective method of securing this data wifrbe to have it collect- ed by the census enumerators in the range states at the same time they are securing the population and agriculture returns. As the cooperation of live -stock owners is absolutely essential, the buret) emphatically states that there need be no hesitation or op- position on their part. as there is positively no danger of the infor- mation they gleebeing ootomum- cated to county assessors or forest service officers. The bureau authorities have always lnai mu tdl ined the position that all niformation gathered by it nas for statistical use solely and would not under any circumstances be imparted to any other branch of the govern- ment. There are a large number of stockmen in the first census super- visor's district under supervisor Harold Blake, who has headquar- ters in Butte, and in an interview today Mr. Blake asked the hearty cooperation of all owners•nd care- takers of live -stock in Montana in making the census enumeration. He stated that the enumerators would begin work on April 15th, or shortly thereafter, and especi- ally requested that stockmen ob- serve the following inetrUntionS in making their reports to the census enumerators: . - - - • \Report all domestic animals -on your farm or ranch on April 15, 1910. If you make use of the public domain in connection with farm or ranch, you should report all domestic animals belonging to you and under your care on that date, even though a part or all of them are being grazed on the pub- lic domain and are not kept on your farm or ranch. If you have given out any of vane. live -stock to be taken care of on other farms or ranches, you should not report them, as they will be reported on the ranch where they are kept and not on your ranch.\ HARRISON JORDAN Celebration of Eighty-fifth Annivers- ary of Birth.'
