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.

January 7. 1910 Will He Explain Of course, it is opitional with the board of county commissioners to give the printing contract to any paper in the county, but why that honorable body should award the work to a paper of different political faith than its members and to a higher bidder at that, is difficult to determine. The board surely did not do it on the grounds of - safe guarding the interests of the county as any member could Ainickly see which was the lower bid. If the lowest bid was thrown out on account of that paper's re- publicanism why was the demo- A7atic Signal overlooked and the Ledger selected, and why did Com- missioner Schulstad refuse to see- ond a motion or vote his convic- tions, or didn't he have any convic- tions on such an important item as it printing contract involving seve- ral thousands of dollars. His of - heal acts at that time were not very commendable and an explanation is due his constituents. Sanders County is not shedding any tears over the dismissal of Pinchot by President Taft. The ousting took place this evening. There is no other section of Mon- Aana that can (Ater , a better field for the capitalist ,and investor than sanders county. • The landed val- nations in the. county are extreme- ly conservative but they will not long remain that way, and espec- ially is this true of Plains and the surrounding country. Real estate men are daily receiving inquiries regarding opportunities here, and in fact, the entire county is at- aracting considerable attention in the eastern states. With a climate that is second to _none, splendid educationalprivileges attdr abund- ant resources for many actiiiities, this county offers special induce- ments for more capital and people for greater development. If you think Plains not a favor- ed spot, just glanee at the cold weather table published elsewhere. While other portions of the United States have been in the storm grip this valley was basking in sun- shine and pleasant days. It seems that E. 1). Peek, chair- man of the republican county cen- tral committee, is getting to be quite a personage with the board of county commissioners which is composed of three democrats. For the past few years Mr. Peek has been health officer, then the board leased the Peek farm at the exhor- bitant rate of One Dollar per year and advertised that the successful bidder for the care of the poor, etc., should take care of them on the saki farm. Why this proviso in the advertisement. Whist Party Wednesday evening Mr. and Mrs. I. J. Ross entertained a number of friends at progressive whist. Three tables were played and a splendid time was had with the cards and conservation. Refresh pleats were served. The guests included Mr. and Mrs. Frank flarle * n, Mr. aid Mrs. Thus. Stanton, Mr. and Mrs. 0. L. Avery, Mr. and Mrs. Harley Remick, Mr. and Mrs Otis Coppedge, Mrs. D. S. McLeod, Mrs. camicl Vanderateede, Ulan Grace Morrison end Jeesle Dun - ;se and R. r• ReWffini The Town Council met in regular session last Mondav,with the Mayor, 'Town Clerk, and Councilmen t‘iok, Coppedge, Dildine and Kruge- pres- ent. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved, and the reports of the town marshal the Witte magistrate and the ,town clerk and treasurer were read, re- ferred to the proper committee, ap- proved, and ordered filed. The sala-y of the Town Marshall for the month of December, 1909, amounting to $75, and his bill of !$1.00 for board of prisoners, and the claim of John Morrison for $2.00 'for work done on the jail were ordered paid. Mayor Powell stated that he would leave town during the present month for an extended absence, and asked for leave of absence for four months, which was granted him. A proposition to open a street through Block 7 of the Original Townsite, from McGowan Street to the right of way of the railroad,was eiscussed. It appeared that lots 8 and 21 could be secured for that purpose for $300 and that such street, if opened, would be a great rconvenience, especially to cattlemen, in permitting them to drive their cattle into the stock yards without taking them around the corner to the present ezitrance. It was moved by Kruger and seconded by Cop- pedge that the clerk be instructed to lay the facts before the proper officials- of the Railroad Company, and endeavor to induce them to assist the town in purchasing a right of way for the proposed street. ad also that the Clerk se- cure an option for sixty days from present owner of the property. The motion was carried by a unanimous vote. The Council also discussed the al- leged misconduct of the Town Mar- shal, George Wells, in assaulting one Jacob Myers and in handling prisoners,esriecially drunken Indianq with unnecessary severity. On hearing the statement of Mr. Wells with reference to the matter, and the statements of others - having knowledge of the facts, it was re- solved, by a unaminous vote, that in the alleged assault the said Town Marshall was not in any way to blame for the occurrence. and fur- ther, that in his treatment of drunk- en Indians and other offenders against the town ordinances he has I not, in any instance, used more force or severity than was absolutely necessary, and that it is the opinion of the Town Council that no reason exists for censuring or criticizing the said official. There being no further business the treeing adjourned. Geo. R. Ogden, Town Clerk. - 'Asa Ilaininons has a nice assort- ment of Epwo_rt_lLe_ague pins.

Starnge as it may seem in the light of of certain magazine articles telling bow prohibition is a farce in the state of Maine, the officers in most sections of the state seem to be doing business un- der the provisions of the no•I icense law. Five men in Waterville were recently arrested and convicted in the municipal court for keeping liquors for sale. Other cases were appealed to the superior court, the higher court confirming the decision of the lower court, and these men were compelled to pay the penalty. They had just gotten through with the struggle with the municipal auth , with a rud were beginning to breath easy agein when the deputy United States shrift and a deputy marshal arrested them anti took them to Portland to appear before the United Slates district court on the Charge of selling liquors without having paid Ow United States revunue tax.
