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 owner of a railroad pass in the state of Montana is now at perfect liberty to use said paste- board as a cigar lighter, for memo- randum purposes or any old thing, other than a wane of getting over the state without producing the coin of the realm. The railroad 1•011). panics have issued orders to eon- ductors that all passes are cancelled and directing then) to collect fares frotn everyone. The only exceptions are employes of the roads and members of the railroad commis- sion. All who hive enjoyed concessions from the railroad companies, nTany of them county and state officials, as well as others, will in the fu- ture be obliged to pay their fares inn like common folks. No ex- ception - will be made to the rule. It. operation will be general as the supreme court has declared that passes are documents of Hie- gel issue, the little pantehoards that look so neat enclosed within little morocco wallets, have no other value than that of a souvenir.

We lied with us two candidates on the state dente - Re -talc ticket in the persona of the lion. Chas. S. Hartninn, the next. congressman from the state of Montans. ?el Peter San - get, whci will he one of the board of Montana's future railroad com- missioners. Both are of the pro- greiwivejted inattrging type., and and it their words carry the same conviction throughout the state as they did in Whitehall, Hartman will be fighting kit the peoples' rights after the 4th of next March and Sanger will, before that time, be a member of the railroad com- mission. Bonfires and fireworks preceded the opening of the meet- ing. A packed hall greeted the ispeakers. C. W. Hatch, precinct conimitteenian, presided. The first speaker of the evening was Jetties Kelly of Boulder, chairman of the democratic county central committee. Mr Kelly in a very phrasing way spoke of the capabilities of the various candi- dates on the ticket, from top to bottom. Peter Sanger of Butte, candidate for railroed commissioner, eas /hen introduced. ' Mr. Stinger dim - deemed any *Inky am a public speaker, hut from his short talk the endience ea. fully convinced the Mr. Senger is a worker if not a talker, and that he will be the right man on the commission hoard. Being a man of brond-minded ideas both the people and the railroads will get. n'squsre deal et his hands. The ehief spesio rot the ei ,-- jog, Hon. Chas. 1*, Herman, can- didate for congress, followed Mr. Sanger with a forceful and con- vincing talk nhich carried the audience with him all the time dur. ing the hour or more that he spoke. (hi the outset Mr. Hartman di' - (dim rd himself as an exponent of the rights of time' people: a defen- der of both Imman and.,, property rights, and in this statement he nettle a decided hit -with his midi-. ence, largely perhaps from the fart that his past record beers out this utterance. Mr. Hartman is no neyophite in the hells of con - Areas rind the people of Montana are so well acquainted with his past acts that it seems more than evident that he has that \lead pipe cinch,\ of which he spoke in the course of his remarks, as a job representing this state in the lower house of congress for the next two years. Mr. Ilertmse next took up the Campaign in Jef- question of the direct vote of the people and placed Iiiimielf square- ly on the platform of electing United States senators by direct vote. There was no equivocating on this - proposition; his words were to the point and left no doubt in the min& of his audience that he is right on Oils question. .‘,. Following this Mr. Hartman took up the Aldrich -Payne tariff hill, and it is unnecessary to say that thim piece of iniquitious legis- lation was flayed alive. Ina force- ful and convincing way he show- ed his hesrers that there had been no downward revision of the tariff as promised by the head of the nation, President Taft. Reading from speeches by the president promising reforms of the tariff, Mr. Hartman clearly showed that the republican perry lied not ful- filled pledges along this line of na- tional legislation. Another national issue which Mr. Hertman dwelt largely upon was the postal savings bunk bill. While a postal savings law lied been passed, he declared that it h i wes a \exigent\ law and not at all n kee;:ing with the party pledges of the reputilicen party. This bill Senator Carter el:lints an undo tinionut of credit for having plots ed through congress, but its weakness as a measure beneficial to the laboring class lend Mr. Hertinan to remark that if he were daddy of it he would \deny his own child.\ In his remarks he paid clue respect to the \system\ whidli preyilils tit the national seat of government, lie told of his tight against Cannunism, Aldrielaism, Reediam and ell the none which he had encountered during his pre- vious service in congress. Know- ing the congressional ropes of this great \e -stern\ under the com- mend and dictation of two or three heads, he is in position to state facts- plainly. Return him to congress and he vows to fight the \system\ to the last ditch, and the people of Montana know ex - Congressman Hartman well enough to know that he will do all he says he will do. Free!

McKsv & CARMICHAEL MERC. Co. Whitehall THAT OBNOXIOUS AMENDMENT The voters must meets crisis in the election this fall. There will then be presented to you an amendment which, in effect, will provide for the continuation of the present state tax rata. It is for you to decide %%nether or not the income of Montana shall be diminished by $300,000. Such it. decrease would check the advance- ment or the state along the lines of road iniprovement, of conserva- tion of natured resources and of maintaining state institutions. The constitution of the state at Present provides that when the waneemed valuation reaches $300, • 000,000 the tax shall not exceed one and one-half mills; instead of two and one-half mills es at pres- ent. The proposed 'intendment is to remove this limitation and this leave the rate unchanged. The measure is not partisan, and does not mean to increase taxes, it means only to leave the rate as it is. Attention is called to the fact that Moisten:1's lux rate Is already loner than that of othet weatern states of like rtink. The decrease provided by the constitution would make the rutin absolutely the low- est in the Northwest. Can Montana, the largest of this group, afford to hamper her de- velopment to such an extend This is a growing state, commercial and industriel interests are ex- panding, new duties are con- tinually devolving upon the state governmeut and the necessary ex- assvrir thst govern- ment increases proportionally. Do you wish to see these duties and re- sponsibilities neglected for the sake of a paltry geini If you have now an assessed valuation of $25,000 the defeat of the amend - client will save you $25. \Pray line made good,\ nays the Admonisher in Boulder town. So did Benedict Arnold make good. After till the world ham% changed much since Arnold's time —espec- ially along his particular line. Lot the campaign progress, and with it let Montana's iniarepre- sentatives in the national halls of congress he given the widest pub- licity of \what they should !um, done and did not do.\ The truth about this bunch has only half been told. The sun shines brighter every day on the cense of .deinocracy in Jefferson count'. Every indica- tion points to a clean sweep for the ticket in Jefferson county. Let Montana follow the lead of .Jefferson county and if there is it repiiblican constable in the state that gets into office, he will know that Ito lins been iti the running. The time is now ripe for reels- tretion. Don't overlook this vets important matter, for tits very good reason thet if you fail to get your name on the registry hooks you will also fail to vote. The great supreme court of this state has so decreed. Do it now; reg- ister today. Whitehall Meat Market W. M. FITZHUGH, Proprietor Freah and Salt Meat. Ranch Butter, Pc:sultry arid Egg.
