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 inueli heralded conservation congress was opened in St. Paul at the Auditorium, which seats 10,000, on Monday, when Presi- dent Taft addressed the session. The anditori ..... wets fitted to the c540ci4., oAsseiziebt„ . .,we received by the vast and ience with hearty applimse which frequently interrupted hi. address. In the iifternoon. our own gov- ernor, Edwin L. Norris was one of the speukers. Governor Nor- -re came out squarely fur state conservation, and in his address, said Motitnna wiil lead in conser- vation in the future as it has in the past. The dispatch gives the follow' ing excerpt front the governor's address; Governor Norris of Montana With the third speaker at the after- noon session of the second nation- al •conservetion congress today :, He said he ego glad to find that the original ides, that the opinions of the congress were to be eur- tailed by the dictation of the pro- gianone committee. was wrong. I want to contradict tin im- pression the Northwest is against conservation. On the other linnet, we were the fist exponents of conservation. We got the nation- al gouerntnent to pens the censer- Nretion laws and you mime to us for lessons. \So sure am I that the owner- ship of the water of the state is vested in the state that I believe the next legislature of Montana The Win itehall HOTEL F.

Many availed themselves of the op- portunity for a hunting and fish- ing trip. The city was rendezvous for . many sportsmen from Butte, and the crowd which boarded the evening train for the great oo camp was perhaps the largest ever carried in at that hour bg the railroad. In the afternoon at the ball park, one of the best games of hell ever seen here was played between M. J. B, coffee team of Butte and the local boys. The Butte team succeeded in getting two runs over in the second inning, wit* afterward they got one more, and it was not until the 8th that the locals suceeeded in tieing the score. The game went to the last half of the 10th and closed in a spectacular finish by Whitehall securing the winning score, with one man out. The score stood, M. J. B., 3; White- hall. 4. The attendance was not so large as it would have otherwise been had not a heavy wind prevailed which filled spectator's eyes with dust.

A goodly number of the officers and members of the Metliodt-t Episcopal churelt responded to a call for n round table on Tuesday evening. Devotional exercises were engaged in, after which plans for the success of the work were considered. it Was decided to do the best possible to make this year notable as a year of soul winning. Re. view meetings were arra-aged for, and it was thought best to hold cottage prayer meetings in as mans homes its will open their doors. The financial system we. ta k en tip and it. wns deeided to adopt the \disciplinary plan\ and carry it out to the letter. It was anggested that the church and personage be kaleomined and painted.

Minister. .EDITORIAL COMMENT I OISTOITED IDEAS With reluctance the Sunlight pays heed to anything emanating from the office of its contemporary, the esteemed Boulder Monitor, for that benighted journal of repub- licanism is notoriously bad in arith- metic, uneducated in geogrephy, simply 'lyr&d in grammar, and ea' fully simple ltslogie• • Last week There was Published cei;tevisi columns of the Boulder travesty an article, evi- dently contributed. whith ittre- ported to give an outline of a job the democrats had for dividing Jefferson couoty. Not exclusively educational, yet at the risk of tiring its many in. telligent readers, the Sunlight will maudlin into the endeavor to assist its friend over the divide pathway of right thinking. The political hrstory of Mon- tana will show that no bunch of politicians ever yet succeeded in creating a new, or dividing an old, county without the consent and approval of a majority of the tax- -t-treor-of laarritosy l. volved. Bad as some legislatures in Montana were reported to have been, no ramenibly has yet shown such a degree of intolerance of the man who pays the bills\( But why should the democrats desire to have the county of Jef- ferson divided! At the present time there are four mu embera of state assembly --all democrats. It is an assured ft that this county is dernoerritic--wfweys w as and always will he. Manifestly then, if there is any proposition on foot to change the geogrsphical lines of grand old Jefferson, perforce, it is the offspring of a few defeated and disgruntled republican poli ticiann, Without having the figures by it, the Sunlight ventures the as- sertion that the rate of taxation in Jefrerson county, after the many years of democratic rule, is among the lowest of any in the stele. The Sunlight owes its. first nlle- giance to the town of Whitehall hut it is not so extremely narrow between the eyes nor so devoid of love of congenial political coin- Panionehip that it .will confine it- self to one side of a mountain range. lahicht, though it may di- vide. does not ...parade it from its friends. It, matters not from Ishtar por- tion of the county comes the lar- ger portion of the candidates on the democratie ticket, the entire phe tans will meet with a cheer hearty and unanimous support from their political brethren at the r ..polls on the 911, day of Novella- ie The werld does °move. After eighteen years in the lower . house of congress mnd fifteen year. in the senate. Julius C. Burrows's of Michigan was defeated for renom- ination. He was stand-piitter of the most virulent type. But wait till you hero- what lintiperia to Thorny,'.. henry. Medison eountys' delegation to Livingston is solidly against the W. B. George ides of endorsing a candidate for United States semi - tor. Silver Bow county detnocrats are against endorsement of any enndidnte for United States sena- tor. AMENDMENT SHOULD CARRY It is the opinion of the Sunlight that the proposed amendment to the constitution of the state of MOIltann, as proposed by the last legislative assembly, and which is to be voted upon at the coming election, should receive the hearty support of every nein who has the welfare of this great common- 8441. 1 10 04 ,AbW • - • • Under the provisions of the conatittitiou of the steteas it now stands the rate of taxation must be reduced next year. the assessed valuation of the state having this year passed the mark, established by the constitution, when the rate shall be cut down. Thus NIontena will occupy the pantdoxial posi- tion of one who. letving grown so iieli that his ineonie is less than when oe ens comparative's poor. The Sunlight will endorse the contentions of Governor Nor , via mind the state tax board, for it verily believes. that as we have grown richer, we should not now allow ourselves to beconic_poor o tri - the Irnp of public 'Aron ture. The Sunlight believes that Mon• tuna people have /41101 it pride in their state that they will not tie the hands of the legeslative assembly, nor of its executive officers In the administration of public dillies. Every patriotic M o ii 1.11 mi a h should vote for the constitutional amendment. OF WHAT BRAND? On the 13th of this month the republican county convention will be held in this city, and it may be a little amusing if not instructive to wntch the proceedings. It is n foregone conclusion that the repulicans of this county are out to elect Tom Carter for Sena- tor and as he is a -stand -patter like your uncle Joe, it means that the party 'in Jefferson county is of that veritey. But is iti Will the the party in convention assembled dare come out and endorse the action of the stand -patters, or will it be the old effective cry ----\rally 'round Roosevelti\ During the past week Teddy has come out flat for the insurg emits, and this has widened the split in the ranks of the 0. 0.

But if the republican convention of Jefferson county endorses Car- ter, thus joining the rankm of the stand -petters, what will they do with little Cludie3 Prey, who got into congress twice by shouting for Tedal.vi Poor old republican party!
