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.

EDITORIAL COMMENT MANGE IN MANAGEMENT. With this issueof the Montana Sunlight the plant, good will and equipntent passes into new hands, and henceforth the Sunlight will he run strictly as a democratic newspaper. No extravagant promises will be made as to the paper's future. At once a new cylinder press will be installed and a &towline en- gine. The kindness manifested by the people of Jefferson county and 4 7 :e1ill. Medi :the new _urtsKie s tor to believe that under the new regime the Sunlight will continue to be a welcome visitor to the many ii iii Ii to and will be a power of good in the county and community. DUDLEY AXTC.L. - Editor. ANINT Tag 1011.NAT TIRES The present deplorable state of the national forests in the west serves to accentuate the patent fart that the forestry serviee organised by Gifford Pinchot Is wholly incompetent and inea petite of protecting the valuable timber on the mountain elopes of %Ilia that bureau's former chief is so fond of toting the American peo- ple through the columns of muck- raking tuagazines. In the days when the forests o the country were under the pro tection of local people it was con- sidered a patriotic duty to gumrd then) zealously. Now, however. the order ol..bisiage have chaser*. and we hove the spectacle of the annual wail of woe going up from these self-appointed sestedians who. though under lieu vy eatery. do nothing the greater portion of the year. and when enlamity over- takes them seek to save them- selves by offering government money itt the rate of fifty ecntm iwr hour for assistants.

Bather. it is baud') It mattl r of versions of one story ; it is II case, in feet, of a good ninny stories which conflict with respect to essential points. Wc don't see, however, that it makes very much difference. In this case one story is as good as another, because it seems not at all probable that the state convention will be influenced, in this instance. by proposals from Billings.

In their time these democrats would have had more federal senators if they had shown more sense. As It Iv, there is no second-best way, unless it be assumed that a state conven- tion's choice is better than a legis- lature's choice -the state conven- tion being made up of delegates not chosen with reference to the senatorial preference of their con- stittiente.-Anaconda Standard. We came back. Now is the time to subscribe. 1.eave ajar the politieal door of &sr ttif seatitoriel candidates.

Our piedeessor has remained the local editor, and to him our readers owe thanks for the excellence of the local column.

Just to net at rest idle rumor the Sunlight wishes to state that its effulgent rays nre neither to he purchased or dodged. There being no further business in the office the Sunlight goes to press, The real fireworks have begun in New York state with Teddy It thumbing the tannon. The mime of every democrat in .Jefferson county should be on the subscription list of the Sunlight. TIIP republicans of Jefferfton county are now engaged in it fnetional tight, which is passing strange in view of the fact that no candidate on that ticket will stand a ghost of a show of election.

Methodist Conference — - - The nnnual conference of the Nlethodist Episeopal church of %font:Ina was opened at Helena on Tuesday evening with an address of welcome by Mayor Edwards and it re•ponse by Bishop McIn- tyre of Minnesobi, who presided.

The new rules. how- ever, provide an \evernge iiiSti\ whereby time gained on one ettr na t y be opplied oil another as an off -set, thus liver:aging the deten- tion for a period of thirty dmys, and it is thought by some Butt the unifoim code is preferable t o th e present rules reasons. tended free time on lumber, etc., as above, after much controversy and deelings with the carrier com- panies, and before we could feel warranted in authorizing its can- cellation, we must know that the people of the state fully under- stand and denim the adoption of the proposed code. Therefore, to determine this question It has been decided to hold a public hearing in the house chamber, capitol build- ing, Helena. at 10 o'clock a. in., Sept. 7, 1910, to which the public is invited and will be given an op: . pertunity to be heard either for or - egttinst the unggested change.

Valuable Coal Lands. , In the recent hearings before the joint .1,1%11114We that investigated the interior derattnant and the forest service, A. II. Brooks of the U. S. Geological Survey tenti- tied that the acceesnible coal of the best Alaskan fields the Bering river hind NIRtattatiska - Was worth half a cent a ton in the ground. 1'0 Willie persons this meant that the coal lands of Alnska lind no value whsteyer, tett the value stat- ed by Mr. Brooks is higher thato thot of most coal lands In the enst ern staters, not their to lines of tratimportation land to niorkets. In fact. good bi- tuminous cool in some well -devel- oped eastern fields hits recently issikrfor one- thirteen( h of tr cent a ton in the ground. Priced at the Into given, the beet Alaska coal holds axe worth from $50 to $500 an acre, values far above the aver- age price of bituminous coal lands in the United Staten. -Mining Sci- ence.
