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.

It is conven- iently located, being aboat ',lit feet friiin the entrance to our sanctum. Let the gaiod work continwe. If. Dorn, of Helena. State agent for the Et ii Life Insurance company, was in the camp 'ruestlay. Mr. Dorn has a large and increasing business in and around 'Wickes, which requires his presence about otice a mmit h. The water works can be put in run- ning order none top soon. On Weclnes- -day a small blaze started in the ceiling •of Jas. White's residence, but wars exlingttisherl before much daMage had been done. The ceiling is of canvas. and a spark falling on it from the stove pipe caused the fire. The following squib, culled from the columns of the Friendly, Visitor, applies to Wickes as well iia , Helena: \Every dollar sent away from Helena, or Montana, actually means he loss of. the use of the equivalent of two dol- lars. Can you afford longer to send away the money you need at home with which to keep business doing.\ We stepped into the Wickes phar- macy this morning and found Mr., Stuart busily engaged in unpacking a large line of holiday goods, consisting of bric-a-brac, albums, portfolios, toilet articles, etc., in nickel, ivory, pyrolin, silver, plush, etc., which he had just' received from the easit. 'As soon as it, is possible, a display 'will be made of the above, together with a large as- sortment of many of the latest novel- ties. Mr Stuart has shown rare judg- ment'atid good 't aste in his selection, :and we are sure that all will find just , ' what they want for the holidays. Last week there arri'ver. in Wickes a patent medicine faker who did quite an extensive business for a tithe. It was \Doc\ Bartell, of. Butte. fti conversa: tion with our druggist, he claimed tet:' be representing a Butte tea house, hut said he only did business directly with , the consumqrs. He went to the Alta and Minah, and after lifting out a few samples of tea displayed a large nom : bey of bottles' of patent ined i nee Thk miners were. induced to buy large piantities of the so-called medicinea and the faker deft camp many dollars' , the richer for his shary practice. This' is the second time within six months that this man has worked the same game, and he should he looked after by the county authorities. He has any number of schemes in his pos- session, but the proper one -a license is missing. The work of putting in the water ' works is being - rapidly pushed to coin- oletion. The ditch has been exca fed the entire lengah of Main street, mil the work of laying the pipe. which irrived •Mieulay, begun. Water will ..)e supplied from a reservoir just east af I. O. O. F. hall, though another res- ervoir will be erected in the neat\ futnre. The company announce:4 that it furnish water free for fire purposes,; and will put in three tire plugs -one. near ()ad Felhrws hail. another . in front ,f the postottice and the third near the h , spital. Several, public hydrants will hi. putt in for use of those pers,iis, a-li di not care to go to the expense i ' .f putting water into their honses. The wao r --vstem is what has long been 'ceded in Wickes, and will be a great bniefit and convenience. The rapidity with which the work has been con- -alumnae(' reflects credit on the men] who are bark ingfthe scheme. --as ...- Digest of Land and Mining Decisions. 1 - The following decision, WI`, I` fur- nished by W.

'There i. little doubt . ti f Se'clet.0 I\ Olney could have his way the blufl which Great Irritant iris made against 'Venezuela wOuld be ii(rt by a fleet of U. S. war vessels, and that the British would be tik1c1 once for all that the :Violinte doctrine was the policy of this country and that it would be fought for., if neessary. But there is a great deal of doubt about Secretary °Ine . , . having his own way. There ate grounds for the belief that Presidetrt Clevelani :sopposel to going further than to use the good offices of this government ta bring about iii amica- ble settlement if the dispute between Great Britain as to file bounda'ry hi tie and to maintain a hands all attitude as far as the new dispute about the 'arrest of British by Venemelan offi- cials is concerned. There was an imeortant meeting of the cabinet held today, and this question was discussed. There is a rumnr, believed lry many, that Secretary Olney intiimited plainly that lie weitild re.ign if the administration (lid 'lint stand by the position he had already assumed, in official dispatches to the Britirh gov- ernment. in defense of the Mcntrae doctrine. Whether Mr. Olney really threatem•d to resign is a question, hut the proba- bilities are all against his doing so. He is an ambitious man, and all his friends say that he expected tit further his anibitinn by having - his mime con- nected with a foreign policy iif intense Americanism. Granting - all that to be true is no argument in favor of his resignatidn. Suppose that President Cleveland is over=cautions, or even timid, if .yon please, the most that he call do against Secretary Olney ,s , vvishes is to do nothing. for no man is, silly enough to think the president would openly acknowledge an aban- . donnient of the Minfroe doctrine by this country. If, then, Secretary Olney has the judgment his admirers credit. him with he will see that the best thing he can do is to remain in the cabinet until congress gets a chalice at this Venezuelan question: Those at all familiar with congressional senti- ment on the subject know that it is overwhelmingly in favor of the main- tenance of the Monroe doctrine, by farce if necessary. and congress will be in session in a little -river a'unitith. It would then seem to be wax' policy on the part of Secretary Olney to re- main it the head of the state depart- ment, for it is the general belief that if (;reat Britain attempts to ignore the Monroe doctrine eong - ress will compel the administration to prevent it. and Secretary Olney, if he 'retnains in office, will have the pleasure of putting his ideas into effect. BetWeell lloW :1•1 , 1 the assembling - of isingress he can by the exercise of a little diplomacy pre- vent the taking of any isisitive action. Those are smite of the reasons why well-informed people iii not think Mr. Olney will leave the cabinet. The question of whether the silver men have a majority in the senate will have to be decided almost as soon is congress meets. It has been asserted. by such prominent silver senators i . e.:. Teller, of Colorado, •and Dubois, of Idaho, that the silver men were in Vi , . majority and that they intended ti assert themselves by demanding and getting control of of the impir- tatrt committees. especially on finance, as soon 'as emigres', MeetS.
