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.

S TANFORD Is the Corn- -mercial Metropolis of the richest country on earth THE STANFOYD VOL. 1 NO. 31 52.00 THE' YEAR Features of the Congress \ENROM every state which is classed as dry farming territory there comes reports to the committee that have charge of the Dry Farming congress, which will be held in Billings, next month, the word that products will be sent from these respective regions that will represent the products raised and grown in those parts. Even now, the latest report, of the bureau says, the exhi- bits are arriving, and it is expected that before the congress meets there will be on display as fine a collection of agricultural products as can be gathered in the west. As a special feature of the prizes to be awarded there are two silver cups offered for the best display of grasses and forage crops, the which competition is oven to the world. The value of these cups is placed at $150.00 and we are told by the press bulletins sent out by the committee that the same are solid silver and are handsome trophies. One of the main attractions of the congress will be the division of farm machinery. This department will contain ex- hibits from all the leading manufacturers of the world, and those who miss this opportunity to view modern farm machinery and implements in practical operation will no doubt long regret the fact. Important Ruling on Mineral Land STANFORD. FERGUS . 1 C0UNTY, MONTANA. SATURDAY. SEPTEMBER 18. 1909 SHIP C..A.TTLITAFT STARTS , Fifteen Cars of Stock Shipped to Cnicgo Market ; When fifteen car loads of cattle leave a point in one day it is pretty good evidence that there is - some- thing doing in the line of railroad shipping matters. And, yet, that is just the exact amount and number of cars that left Stanford. on Tues- day last. The cattle were shipped t by W. I. Hughes and Robt. Skelton, I and were consigned to Chicago. Few, if any towns along the line of the Great Northern railroad in this section can lay claim to any such showing of business, and certain it is that Stanford is being recognized by the wise shippers and ranchmen of this section as being the only - m logical point from which to transact - their business with expedience and ,poses and the government coin- their the same time successfully. menced suit to void the location.

President Taft started on his tour of , the western states, on Friday Septeniber 17, and delivered an address before the Boston Chamber of Commerce, in which he said: \I believe my trip will bring closely to me the needs of particu- lar sections so far as national legislation is concerned. and I be- lieve it will make me a wiser man and a better public officer. \The personal touch between the people and the men to whom they temporarily delegate power con duces to a better understanding be between them. \We are, I believe, on the eve of another great business expansion an era of prosperity.

It was the intentioh of the railroad officials to run only freight trains through for the time being as it was not clear that the rock overhead would not cave in, and the company did not care to take any chances on the same. This fear, however was allayed, Friday.; when both passenger trains were I sent through the tunnel. and the long blocked line is now open for traffic under the same schedule as that which was in effect before. the fire happened. The fire in the I tunnel has cost the railroad com- pany thousands of dollars, and we learn that it is being planned by the railroad officials to concrete the same. Buys the Lane Ranch The 100 acres of land which tut -- joins the Judith Basin experimental station, which was a homestead Ming and proved up by Gene Lane, who is the general manager of the Montana Lumber Co., has been sold to W. C. Hayward. of Decatur, Ill. From this land there was harvested , this year 5,000 bushels of wheat. The purchase price was $32.50 per acre. This ig one of the most valuable pieces of farm land in the Judith Basin, and Mr. Hayward is to be congratulated on his purchase. CLARK'S VIEW OF HARRIMAN Ex -senator Wm. A. Clark, of Montana, in an interview given to the press the early part of the week, pays the following tribute to Edward H. Harriman. Says Mr. Clark: \Mr. Harriman occupied a position in the financial and railway world absolutely unique. With an ambition that knew no bounds, he had the sagacity and courage to work out his schemes to a successful termination and as a factor in the development of the great resources of the west he stood without a peer. His extraordinary mind seemed to grasp the most intricate problems and he decided questions in a broad and comprehensive way' Autocrat Pinchot Gets His Bumps From Pres. Taft Gifford A. Pinchot, that autocrat of the forest reserve system of the United States has been handed his bumps by President Taft, by virtue of a statement given out by the chief executive in which lie fully extinct- ' ates Secretary of the Interior Ballinger, and authorizes to dismiss from the service, L R. Glavis. who filed the charges against the secretary. The statement of president Taft is as follows: Albany, N. Y., Sept. 15—President Taft has exonerated Secretary of the Interior Ballinger in the matter of charges filed by I. R. Glavis, chief of the field division of the general land office, in connection with the Cunningham coal land claims in Alaska and orders him to dismiss R. L Glavis from the service. WALL STREET AVERTS PANIC While the railroad and financial world awaited with abated breath the result the death of E. H. Harri- man would have upon their opera- tions, the news comes through the press dispatches that Robert Lovett.' E. H. Harriman's personal counsel and close friend, was elected to sue - reed Mr. Harriman at the head of the Union Pacific executive corn- mittee. financial supervision of the Union Pacific. His close associations with Mr. Harriman make him, in the opinion of the Harriman lieuten- ants, properly fitted to assume the responsibilities of the positition. He and Mr. Loree are closely familiar with Mr. Harriman's plans and dreams for the undeveloped territory over which he hoped to push the ascendancy of his railroad To strengliten further the domin- systems. mince of the \Harriman idea,\ Jacob The Southern Pacific directors Schiff and William Rockefeller ; will meet tomorrow.

The failure of the Morgan interests to gain a place on the reconstructed board was a surprise to Wall street, where the last week's rumors had been given general credence. It was pointed out tonight, however, that possibly the Morgan interehts, fearing disastrous results from any radical changes at this tune, may have purposely postponed the selec- tion of a representative until the regular annual election in October.

Neil and his sons, who are cultivating 4(K) acres of land known as the LaFolette homestead near Pullman, Wash.. south of Spokane report a cut of 22.500 bushels of Red Russian wheat, an average of 50 bushels to the acre. This does not include the grain which fell or the hay cut earlier in the season. The crop is believed to be the word yield for a sitniliar area in the northwest. if not on the conti- nent.
