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 fight has been made principally upon the record of the candidates involved. For state officers there are, proper- ly speaking, only two to be vo- ted for—one tempt.. of the state railroad cemnsig - .Seikisheabssidstise state- supreme court. - With the judges themselves taken from the list of political candidates by the law which provides for a non-Intr- time judiciary, it will be seen that on the state ticket, practically, there are only two candidates who seek the suffrage of their political brethern. In addition to these there is a congressman to be elect- ed, and the members of the next state leginlittit re will select an Uni- ted States senator. It has been the endeavor of the Montsna Sunlight throughout it. existence under the editorship, ownership, and management of Ijite.4..r -Arta*, to so - conliet political u &limns that after the mnotke of battle has cleared away that there would remain no state- ments of facts so heartrending to the opposition_thnt time, and the count of the ballots would not heal.
