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.

VIM* WI 46 • % Sanders County Democrat VOLUME 1.0 PLAINS. MONTANA. FRIDAY, AUGUST 12. 1910. NUMBER 43 . HARVEY W. SCOTT EDITOR OF OREGONIAN DIED SUNDAY. HAD BEEN AILING FOR MONTHS— OPERATED ON SATURDAY IN BALTIMORE. Portland, Ore., Aug. 7.—Harvey W. Scott, editor of the Oregonian, died in Baltimore, Md., this afternoon, accerd- ing to a private telegram received hero. Heart failure is given as the direct cause of death. Mr. Scott underwent an operation at Johns Hopkins hospital Saturday. Following the operation it was announced that Mr. Scott's condi- tion was entirely favorable. Mr. Scott left Portland July 28 to have the opera- tion performed. Biographical. Harvey Winfield Scott was born in Tasewell county, Illinois, February 1, 1838. As the name implies, he is of Scotch descent. The first of his ancestors in America came from Scotland about 1755, and lauded at Charleston, South `Carolina. His parents were from Ken- tucky and grandparents from Pennsyl- vania and North Carolina. He was brought up on a farm in Illinois. Ms father, moved by a mi- gratory disposition, determined to conic to Oregon &nein 1852 brought his fam- ily across the plains with ox teams. The family first settled in Yamhill county, where it remained a little over a year, when a removal was made to Puget Sound, where a settlement was made about 20 miles northwest of Olyni- pia, then an unorganized district, now known as Mason county. Fought Against Indians. Here Mr. Scott worked in clearing and making a farm in the wilderness, enduring great hardships and privations. Just as the settlers were becoming com- fortably established, the Indian wars of 1855 and 1856 broke out and young Scott for the greater part of a year was in active service in the'fiehl, con- tinuing to render efficient aid until the Indian disorders were suppressed. This experience was followed by manual labor in logging camps and surveying and at whatever else he could get to do. He was now verging toward manhood and had a strong de- sire for an education, his opportunities for advancement in this direction up to this period having been of the most limited and indifferent nature. Seeking an Education. Educational facilities in the vicinity of hi, home were wanting and in order to devote his time to \ study he came back to Oregon in 1857 \and for a time attended school at Oregon City and Forest Grove, taking up classical and other studies, pursuing them in his owo way and largely without assistance. To maintain himself, he at times worked at farm labor by the month, and at other intervals taught school. lo 1859 he entered upon . ..a regular collegiate course at ForestNrove, and was gradu- ated in 1862, supporting himself in the meantime by his own exertions, mostly by manual labor. • Begins Newspaper Work. After being graduateg lie went to Idaho, and for one year was engaged in mining and whipsawing. Ile then returned to Oregon, and in 1864 came to Portland, where for a few months be was employed as librarian in the Port- land library. He then sought and ob- tained a working place on the Ore- gonian. Showing a decided talent for newspaper work, he soon after became editor, a position which with the excep- tion of a short interval from 1872 to 1877, he has ever since filled. MEN GO TO PUEBLO, COL.

Spain Seems to Have Upper Hand With Don Jaime and Followers. San Sebastian, Aug. 8.—The govern- ment's rigorous measures anent the formal renunciation of the clerical bunta of the threatened demonstration in this city insured comparative tran- quility Sunday .and a largely attended bull fight was the chief incident of the day. From daybreak the streets were pa- trolled by cavalry, infantry and gend- armes, while heavy bodies of troolat were held in readiness at Miramar palace. The gravest incident occurred in the evening when groups of clericals assembled, shouting, \Death to Spain— long live the pope.\ Thousands of indignant people rushed toward the manifestants and only the personal intervention of the governor at the head of a platoon of police prevented an attack. Nearly 150 arrests were made. Many amusing scenes were witnessed. Priests leading bands of peasants took to their heels when they found the city in the possession of the troops. The peasants, all their•courage gone, were disarmed and easily persuaded to return to their homes. The local authorities are convinced that the clerical demonstration marked a Carlist plot. Clericals are extremely indignant at the government's repress- ive measures. Senor Urguijo, the chief organizer of the movement, declared to- day that the policy of the government was opposed by the entire Spanish people. Vatican Optimistic. Roil, Aug. 8.—The feeling ,at the Vatican is optimistic. Hope is enter- tained that an understanding with the Spanish government soon will be reached. It is pointed out by the Vati- can that Premier Canalejas must be grateful to the papacy for restraining its followers from disorders which might have led to civil war. The Vatican and Cardinal Merry del Val, the papal secretary, personally in- structed the bishops throughout Spain to prevent demonstrations and dis- orders. Majority, for Alfonso. An overwhelming majority of Span- iards are Alfonsists in sympathy and refuse to identify Alfonso XII with the Present embroglio. Don Jaime, the pretender, is not re- garded as a formidable personality from any point of view. His advisers in the Carnet organization are not politicians who ran with those upon whom Don Carlos relied. USUAL SUNDAY ACCIDENTS. Automobiles Manage to Kill a Few People—Othea Accidents.

EXACT NUMBER WILL BE KNOWN IN OCTOBER --POPULATION FIGURES COMPILED. It will be about the middle of October before the people of the United States learn their true number as revealed by the count of the thirteenth census. It is generally believed that the number will be about 90,000,000 and census of- ficials are known to share this belief. About 300 of the more than 1800 clerks in the census office are compiling population figures only, while the others are working on other statistics. Con- trary to the general opinion, all the counting of the people is done by hand, the tabulating machines being used only in classification as to race, sex and other conditions. Enumeration figures will continue to be given out day by day for the next two mouths or more, while the sociologi- cal and industrial figures will come later. All enumeration figures are counted three to four times, and an in- vestigation is ordered if there is any suggestion of an error. ID two cities evidence of fraud has been discovered and in one, Great Falls, Modt., a prosecution has' been under- taken for fraudulent enumeration. The intention of Director Durand is to tabulate first the population of the large cities, after which the figures for the states will be given out as they are ascertained, the returns for all counties in the state being announced at the same time as the figures for the state.
