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.

York, May 9. -In pursu- oL ... j.„....0,..ifilerlace the *Sole country Ise »a early date with its web of automatic tele- graph wires. announcement was made in New York today hat the Cr4eeoet company has inM visenient tiveearly expansion of itti system to all parts of Montana. Connection is to be established by warof St. Louis and Kansas City, to which points the system now extends. William H. Me- Collom, former superintendent of construction of the Postal com- pany, who is now in charge of the extension of the new, automatic system, has been looking over the ground for some time and reports conditions unusually favorable for the inauguration of work on the line. This system is regarded by sci- entific men as the niost brilliant achievement in the evolution of telegraphy since Morse's time. representing the conquest of a new basic principle in telegraphy that presages for that industry a world wide revolution with its 2000 words a minute service and rates of one cent, half-cent, and quarter of a cent a word. regardless of time or distance. By the Telepost system a mes- sage is transmitted with equal fa- cility over either it telegraph or telephone wire. Its rates are the lowest and its service the most rapid in the world. Civic organizations and boards of trade ,thruout the state have been in touch with the officials of the Telepost for several months and have aspired the company of their readiness to cooperate with it in any way it can suggest as most likely to facilitate the exten r ition of its lines in Montana. Among the cities and towns - in the state under consideration for early TeJepost connection are: Helena. 1Vnlkerville, Anaconda. Butte, Dillon, Gunderson, Boze• man, Livingston, Big Timber, Red Lodge, Deer Lodge,Virginia City, Miles City. Glendive, Bil ling', Sheridan, Missoula, Ham- ilton, Kalispell, Great Falls, Ft. Benton. Belt, Lewistown, Ilavre, Whitehall. Patrick P. Delany, the inventor of the system which is now used between Boston and Portland. and between Chicago, St. Louie, Indi- anapolis, Terre Haute, and other cities in Massachusetta,New Hamp- shire, Maine, Indiana, Illinois and Missouri, is an old associate of Thomas A. Edison. The discov- ery of the new scientific principle which made its invention possible is the realization of an ambition Delany and Edison lind'as far back as 1871. Oen he and the wizard experimented on improvements to the Morse method of hand trans- mission over a special wire con- structed between Washington and New York with the idea of evolv- ing a &sestet]) of' rapid telegraphy to displace the mails for long dis- tance communication. In addition to being a boon of inestimable value to the public the Delaney automatic system will save the . newspapers of the country hundrens , of thousands of dollars a year in telegraph tolls thru its cheap rates, great speed and :teen - rate service. ; Of the $1,5b0,000 expended ev- ery year for telegraph service by the Associated Press it is figured out that approximately $700,000 will be saved by the use of the au- tomatic eervice,when it completes its continent -wide expansion.

May Lithe court em paneled the trial jury for the term and began trial of the case of the state vs. letters James H. Stabler, charged with! tiscd.\ the embezzlement of $257.09 of the funds of the Great Northern Railway company at Corbin. Af- ter the jury had been sworn to to the case and the county attorno had consulted with his witnesses, he stated that he was unable to proceed and asked for a dismissal of the case because of a lack of material evidence upon which to convict. From She county attor- ney's statement it seems that the authorities of-Sitte railway compa- ny complained against the defend- ant and, as is usual in such comes, the railway authorities gathered atilisrenfidoisosos ad. they had in : formed the county attorney that, they had sufficient evidence to con- vict. but when lie he saw the wit- nesses the evidence was wholly in- competent, being nothing but hearsay evidence, upon which no conviction co Id be had. The de- fendant waNdischarged and the ease was dismissed. Harry - .1. Keely was divorced from Minnie Keeley upon the ground of desertion and the custo- dy of the minor child, Percy J. Keelywits granted the plaintiff. The OM of the state against Fred Lemons 'was dismissed noon motion of the county attorney. Lemons had been held with the ex- pectation that another party might be apprehended and the guilty party he punished for stealing a calf belonging to John Montgomery.
