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.
I. dr' MONTANA VOLUME IX. BUTTE NEWSPAPERS - AND STATE SENATORS Would Retain Control of Legislature in Hands of the Larger Counties Through System of Senatorial Districts --Idea Not at all Popular This esteemed Anaconda Stand- ard and the brilliant Butte Miner are each and severally extreiliely busy these days presenting mat- ters for the consideration of the egislative assembly which meets n Helena January 2nd. erudite papers conceive of para- mount importance is the matter of reapportionment as to the repre- sentation of the various counties in the state in the legislature. The alight emphatically disagrees ith a great portion of the nrgu- lents placed before their: reader* y these two papers. That there s a radical need, out of justice, or the Changing of the represen- on in the lower house, this Apar will not deny, hut it does ot believe that there should be ny change in the manner of elect- a lite senators. From time onnemorial, or so long as Mon - eta% has been a political entirety, he tune of the song sang b.v Sil- er:Bow - county has been that it as Montann; that as:it produced he wealth and furnished tbe mar - et it should be permitted to rule imitate. And in fact the people fi:that _county have %come very rly doing this self -same thing. ho.is it in.Montana,ihavieg even smattering of political knowl- ge, does not know of the tin- nily arrogance of Silver Bow liticians Rnd legislators! In verything they assume that they re Montana, and that whenever ny other portion of the'state gets nything from them, tleat acquire tjnot ns it matte' of right, but ther by the condescension of the IrelA of Silver Bow. It may ot be wandering too far from he subject to state that in every tate convention:of either political party Silver Bow appears as a sin- ister element, demanding not right, but power. In years gone by they of Butte have succeeded hand- somely in that direction, until at the present time there are many people in the big copper camp who aettuttiy beiielea that the troika and confinew of this great state - are identical with the boundaries of Silver Bow county. But, getting nearer to the sub- ject expressed in the caption of this article, we believe every comity of this state should have representation in the upper house. It is proposed by the two, Butte papers refered to that the state be divided into senittorial districts, and that representation in the senate of the state he arranged as to population, having nothing whatever to do with the political divisions. Such an arrangement wherever tried has resulted in the upper house of the state legisln- turn becoming an olegnrchy that the popular will of the people could not reform. Missouri has such an arrangement, and so has the state of ttlichigaii, and in these states the assumption ctf aristoe- nicy of the upper branch of the state 'essembly has reached the point where that body justly merits the contenfpt of the people. Every one whI1 knows anything at all of the political campaigns in this state knows that under the present arrangement the cost of a campaign for legislative hono far exceeds the remunerstion re ceived from the state. By divid- ing Montana into senatorial dis- tricts, and forcing upon the can- didates for the Renate the necessity of traveling over several counties, a condition of affairs will have been reached where absolutely no The Whitehall Pr L F.

It would he almost as expensive as running for congress. The nearer at home you can keep an official the better service will he rendered by him for the conanonweal.

County Division Schemes Galore If there is nnytbing under the sun that this piper is* is an opto: mist, else it could not support, or sport, the name of \Sunlight\ of which it is so justly prond. • But in It career of eighteen yeerp of boosting one naturally acquires some knowledge of the fine points of the game. That is natural even withsthe bloat obtuse pei son. Getting around to the' of whit+. we intend to sncals, sitar render, *testae foHow into that channel of thought n.1 lel' le,nis in' lite siderntion of the many county di-, vision schemes ahich will be up fol considerlistion of the coming legislative assembly. Prohahly the most likely new county pro- ject rut present in the open is that of Musiselshell with Itoundiip for the ceunty Rent. There is nothing to the whole project except the waukee railroed, its land agents and the Republic Coal subsidary 'corporation. Within the confines of the pritiposed new county it never has been demon- strated that an'ythintr could' be produced from the earth except heillend coal. There.ien't a far-) nser within the region who hei won front the adobe soil nustenanCe sufficient to maietain aglow the s'park of life in a cannry' bird for more than thenty-four hours. But it is argeed by the proinoters that the expense of mttending court at the present county seat ia so great that new county could be main- tained at less expense. Thin ra- per, having some knoweledge of the affairs of that section, does not recall n single instance when it resident of Roundup was ever in _Lee istown except on criminal court business. There is nothing the Matter with the community cited as an exapipre except the laxity of the chief of police and the lack of roam in the city init. Montana will be nsked to take several communities of the kind referred to into communion with the older counties, hut it believee that the wise legislator will harken not to the bandishments of the eaatern Montena real eststte agent until he demonstrates ha comes from country where one may get square meal without taking it in with him.' It is up to western Montana to save eastern Montana from . itself and North Dakota real estate omers.
