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.

While be­ lieving that the provisions of the bill are in direct conflict with the decision of supreme court in the Johns case, Governor Norris calls attention to the tact that he was elected on a platform containing ail anti-pass pledge. Though vetoing this bill, the governor approved S. B. 28, by Edwards^ mak­ ing the state regulations relative to passes conform to those in force un­ der the interstate Commerce act, with an additional clause permitting car­ riers to exchange transportation w^th newspapers for advertising. ) The governor also vetoed substitute house hill 2 S3, increasing the salaries of employes of the state prison, hold­ ing that no valid reason exists for limiting the powers of the state board of prison commissioner in this matter. Bills wor,, approved as follows: S. B. 23—Providing lor the estab­ lishment of a biological station on Flathead lake. S. B. 28—To regulate and prohibit the issuance of passes by railroads. H.

' The responsibility of the secretaray- ship of the department of the interior was shifted shortly before 1 o’clock Monday, when Walter L. Fisher, of Chicago, took the oath of office as ,head of that department, succeeding Richard A. Ballinger, retired The formality wus without cere­ mony. The new secretary spent the It developed that senate bill No 14 5, commonly known as the “ insane asylum bill.\ had been incorrectly en­ rolled with the effect of giving addi­ tional influence to the owners of tile property in the appointment of the appraisers. After he dis- i nxered the error, Governor Norris compared the enrolled bill with the engrossed bill and then secured from the owners of the asylum an agree­ ment to abide by the provisions of the engrossed bill, after which he signed the measure. The original bill as it passed the senate, provided for the appointment by the governor of three apraisers, und three apprais­ ers by the owners of the Warm Springs asylum, the six to appoint a seventh. The bill was amended in the house to provide for the appoint­ ment of three appraisers by the gov­ ernor, and in the event they were un­ able to lix a price agreeable to the owners, the latter were to name three more, the governor to name another and the state board of examiners to sit as ex-officio members of the arbi­ tration board. This board of ten was to fix a price, which the owners of the asylum bond themselves to accept and which is to be submitted to the peo­ ple at the next general election. These amendments were concurred In by the senate, but omitted from the en­ rolled bill. In his statement accompanying his signature to the bill, the governor says that the error of enrollment was due, no doubt, to the rush of business in the lust few days of the session. The bill occasioned the bitterest fight of tlu* recent session und almost developed into a public* scandal recent legislature apprtjft printed $3,713,064.43, or $31S,563,Sp;imorn,n£ re e l i n g bureau heads and BAKER IS PLANNED FOR 17TH VOTER RESIDENTS EAST OF FOW HER RIVER W ILL MEET TO DIS­ CUSS FLANS FOR DIVIDING- CUSTER COUNTY— THERE ARE SEVERAL SECTIONS OF TIIE COUNTY WHICH ARE ALREADY LAYING OUT DIFFERENT SC HOMES. Under the ne\V law which enables residents of a -given terrltor to form a new county by petition and elec- lion7 the voters of eastern Custer, ■ county, residents east of Powder river Kill meet in Baker on Friday. March 17, for the purpose of taking definite action for the formation of a new •ounty. This territory lies between Dawson county on the north and the Wyoming line on the south, with the Dakotas as the eastern boundary, and •omprises about 17.5 townships. The assessed valuation is between live and a half and six million dollars. The land is probably 75 per cent agricul­ tural, small portions in different sec­ tions of area being exclusively grazing lands. This territory is settling very rap­ idly with sturdy farmers from the Da- , kotas, Nebraska, Minnesota, Wis­ consin, with quite a number from . lolra and a few from states farther --east and south. Most of them, espe­ cially the later arrivals, are of the bet­ ter class—so termed— that is, are ex­ perienced Jnd actual farmers, with some capital to open up a good farm.

These people are now taking cog­ nizance of the conditions of copnty affairs, particularly with reference to roads and bridges, for which with other large expenditures for county operatitms they feel they are getting but small returns. With the drganlza- tion of the new east side county, and placing the control of east side inter­ ests in the hands of east side people, bey, as well as the older residents, feel that a betterment of conditions will be effected at no greater rate of taxation, and probably much less. So let there be a large representa­ tion at the Baker meeting on the 17th — either by delegates from local com­ munities or en masse. Everybody in­ terested is urged to come and present his views in the matter- Arrangements have been made to properly take care Of a thousand visi­ tors, if necessary, on that day.

The Governor’s Message. In transmitting to the secretary of state his.approval of H. B. 401, Gov­ ernor Norris said: \All bills carrying appropriations, with two exceptions, are now dispo'sed of. I have caused a careful estimate to be made of the appropriations by the legislative assembly for the sup­ port of the various state departments and institutions for the present bien­ nial period, the totals being Us follows: Amount of appropriations for 1911 ..................... $2,080,150.5 Amount of appropriations for 1912 .................... 1.602.175.00 Ision^chttM!vO.C*tho department. The Ismay Journal, devoted to the Interests of Ismay and vicinity; $2 00 per y oar. - * President Gooding, of the National Wool. Growers’ association, has em­ ployed W. O. Johnson, one of the lead­ ing attorneys of Idaho, to present the case of the western sheepmen to the interstate commerce commission, pleading for a reduction oi the freight rates on wool from all western, north­ western and southwestern points. President Gooding appeared before members of the interstate commerce commission recently and was given as­ surance that the sheepman's case would be heard. The rates on wool shipments from western points to Boston, Philadelphia, or New York City are considered con­ fiscatory by the sheepmen. The aver­ age car of wool pays from live hundred to seven hundred dollars freight. Wool is looked upon by the railroads as an extremely desirable class of freight, is no tinjured in wrecks, is not injured in delay in shipment, and Is always considered slow freight, yet it is charg­ ed almost one hundred per cent more than other commodities in the same class. On Tuesday the governor received the following telegram from the pres­ ident oi the American Bison society and director of the New York zoologi­ cal park: \A thousand New York sportsmen heartily congratulate you and the sovereign state of Montana on splendid manner in which you have forever dedicated the Snow creek re­ gion to the perpetuation of four spe­ cies of Montana’s big game \ Th(.
