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.

Leighton of stands as a monument to the se - Boulder announced himself a can. didato for the position of state senator,' the most important' office to be filled at the coming election. he somewhnt flamboyantly called attention to the fact that he had previously served Jefferson county in a legislative capacity. The statement .was true. He was a member of the lower house during the tenth session. But the doctor hap not of recent date told his con- ' then). Some of us, well remember at ' the close of the emir\ to which , the doctor added eclat by his be- nign presence. the good citizens of Boulder tendered aleception to him upon his return to the comity seat. While the other member, of the legislature were invited, Dr. Leighton was really the supposed hero, and as such got into the limelight and stayed there the whole blessed evening. The tune of his political song on that oc- casion was that he was the great - eat parliamentarian of the age, for low and behold, he had succeeded in getting through the unfeeling and inhuman legislature arr appro- priation for it hospital building at the mute school for the deaf, dumb, blind and feeble minded at Boulder. All of which was told with such earnest unction that no person doubted the authenticity of the assertions and being firmly con vinced those present yelled them- selves hoarse for \Little Doc.\ But how rude the a - wakening! Plans and specifisettione were drawn, and our remembrance is that the contract was let for the building. Everything to this point in the procedureliad,slipped mer- rily by and it looked as if at last .he great state of Montana and Dr. Leighton were going to do the right thing by the unfortunate little tots who fell ill away from mother end home. Needing money the board of control made a requisi- tion upon the state treasurer fur the appropriation. Little Doe had been jobbed. There was no such appropriation ever made by the tenth' assembly, notwithstand- ing that, the gentleman from Jef- ferson, as the speaker would say. had carefully watched the bill, and had acted as special messenger to the governor, who signed the paper the doctor brought to him The above is nearly p complete history of the legislative services performed by the present cende date for senatorial honors front Jefferson county. We say nearly complete. Add to it the fact that he voted for Lee Mantle for U. S. senator, and you will have the complete' record of one who man- aged to be wrong all the time.

Still the Missoula convention and the prems of the !HMO would have us believe that this measure was one over which Senator Car- ter has n right to feel proud.
