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.

Miller, of Corbin, has been very ill duringthoa•ast'week, but is slowly convalescing. The bicycle craze.has struck Wickes in great shape, and even six inches of snow has no terrors for the riders. .ties Ryan and Miss Martha Shel- lady, of Jefferson, were registered at the Grand Central hotel, Helena, on Wednesday. Clarence Bonner, who was recently married, ha S eseette0 the old Gilbert house in Twin gulch., and will take up bis residence there for the winter. Chas. Koegel has a . carbuncle on his iteck which is giving him a•great deal of trouble, though he is able to be around and keep things moving - at his popular saloon. State Mine Inspector Shumach was in the camp Monday and went up to the Alta to inspect the place where Malcolm Morrison was killed. He returned to Helena Monday evening. W. II. Harless is in the hospital suf- fering from a cut in the head, caused by falling rock at the Alta. The ac- cident occurred Monday, and he will be able to return to work in a few days. Public Administrator Hoopes came over from Boulder Monday to take charge of the effects of Malcolm Meer- ritton, who was killed at the Alta Sat- urday morning. Besiqs the wages due for the past month's work, nothing of value was found by Mr. Hoopes. We have been informed that consid- erable gambling has been going on in this place: Neihart and -Townsend, yet not 01W. cent has found its. way into the county treasury for a license, says the Meagher County News. This is w trent,. gentlemen; those who dance sliould pay the fiddler. Extensive preparations arc being - made by the Odd Fellows for their grand ball on Thanksgiving evening. and the indications are that it will he a, great success. The best of music will be in attendance, and every one should secure a ticket at once. They are now on sale, and will cost you but $2.50, including supper. Two suits were begun Wednesday in the district court of Lewis and Clarke county by the American Development company vs. John E. Searles:1nd W. J. Clark. Judgment is asked in one for $20,392.66, alleged to be due on a pay- ment for mining, property located in Jefferson county and sold to the de- fendant by •plaintiff, and the other prays for judgment for $5,750 for fail- ure to return certain mining machin- ery, as agreed. The cases were brought over front Butte to Helena. The' men working on the slag dump ai the old smelter are shipping on an average of one car load per week. A car was loaded and shipped to East Helena laid week, and in it was placed ns pounds of bar bullion that had been incited on the dump. We were unable to learn the exact value of the ship- ment, hut it was undoubtedly very large. The lessees claim to be only making wages, though men who are in a position to know claim that it should yield a larger dividend than any silver mine in the county. The Lawrence company are loading two ears of ore from the Blue Bird mine and haVC enough on the dump to till four more ears, which will be load- ed as soon as it can be hauled to the depot. The ore will be shipped over the Great Northern to Butte. A large force of miners are employed and the force ;s being increased as rapidly as room can be made for the new men. The output from the mine is about six cars per month at present, ton -every effort is lining made to ship that anionic) a week, beginning with the first of -the year.

He telephoned to his son, Ray, Wednesday, who joined him in Helena Thursday. .1 Knights of Pythias Lodge was instituted Lump City Thursday evening, and Nyas attended by many members of the order from Wickes ;end v lei n ity, C. H. Foliteem has resigned his place as agent for the N. P. at this point and accepted a position in the feed and grain store of J. W. Monahan. J. S. Oglesby now has charge of the. N. P. depot. We have Si complete line of legal blanks of all descriptions—under authority of the new codes -including quartz, placer and water right Inca - thins and deed to milling claims. Call at this office. One nob. infrequently runs across decidedly queer phases of life at 'the coast resorts. At a seaside hotel the other day a pretty women who evident- ly enjoys the best the we affords stepped up, to the clerk's desk and registered as Mrs. J. Blank, saying as she put the flourishes on her autograph, \Will you please send for my husband and teLl him I ant here?\ As Mr. Blank and Mrs. Blank were in the dining room at that,very moment, the wide- awake clerk was at his wit's end how to avoid a denouement. His diplomacy won out, however, and the two, hearts are still beating as one. This is a deceitful world, especially in its pleas- ure spots. The water works system has been completed and in every way proves a success. Laying of the pipe pleted last Satorday afternoon and most of thesliteesh tilled in. That por- tion of the pipe' which was not covered froze up Saturday night, and some difficulty experienced in thawing it out the next day. After the water begun tee rem freely the balance . of the pipe was covered and it has given no further trouble. The hydrants used etre self -drainers and there is little likelihood of their freezing. The water has :t fall of nearly 200 feet and in case of tire can he forced over the tallest M10(111114 III Wickes. In this respect, if no other, the company lots conferred on the town a favor which our citizens will never forget. Hereto- fore there has been no protection whatever from tire anti when, some years ago, a house took tire the only way in which it could be extinguisheo and the town saved front complete destruction was by rolling up snow ,atid casting - it on the flames. One again we say, the water works will be of inestimable benefit tee our citizens. Opening Annual Bail. The opening entertainment and grand ball given by Mrs. Sulgrove at Helena on Friday last was a success in every rartieular. As a novelty the exhibition dances were introduced between the regular numbers of the dancing program. The Sailors' Horn- pipe was danced by ten little girls ii) sailor dresses and caps. The High- land Fling, with its many intricate steps, was presented with much skill by two older girls, Annie- Bryan and Clara O'Connor, in plaids and tartans. The Oxford Minuet by Flora Salvail and Laurence Kelly, and Grandma's Minuet by Agnes Sulgrove, all dimi- nutive specimens arrayed in ancient court costnnie Stud powdered hair, were very well (Low; the latter dance was preceded by a recitation in which was told how our grandma looked and acted \Long Ago.\ Elsie Abraham- son, a fairy-like tot, in pink costume. elicited the admiration of all by the deft way in which she gave the Skirt dance, and to an encore entrain -eel the old , folks by dancing the famous Cachouca. A number of pupils then preaented the new dances for this season in the style for which their instructor is noted. Of these one was the Lora* int. Gavotte, a dignified dance of the old time with modern additions in the shape of the galop step. 'rhe Agatha Waltz, another very : stately dance, at tracted t he attention but not so much as the former dance. The Statuesque Minuet and Bonnie Brae, both pretty in figure, were of, a character to snit young folks. The Cycle and Threw step, two dames which will no doubt prove popular with the public. were Winter.. e nter la 7t of tho Olm ‘e a•inted for this. The hall was a brilliant affair a more select. finer dressed and gayer throng we have never seen in the Cap- ital city, and to tilV . Piplendiel music of Mhdatite Ericke's orchestra the hourk rapidly sped away until all departed well satisfied that Mrs. Sulgrove's 011.91111g anti al ball asdhled another to the list eel her svcial successes. • WASHINGTON LETTER, Dollies In the Mafiosi's Capital as 90e• YOle Regular Carrestoadent --- Negotiations we , this week begirn for a convention between the rnited States and tl , reat It - ritain, to ascertain the damage to Canadian sealers whose vessels were seized in !tering- Sea by this government, previous tee the de- cision Of the late arbitrioneen tribunal, Secretary Olney representing the U.S. and Sir Julian Paitneefote,. the British ambassador, who has the advisory sistance of the Canadian premier, and minister of justice, Great Britain. It will be remembered that congress, re- fused at the last session to appropriate the $425..000 which Secretary Gresham had agreed to pay for these damages, because it was clearly shown that the amount wits absurdly excessive. A mild sort or a sensation was started in connection with this neg - otiation, by a rtimiue ir that it was also to include the new dispute which the discovery of gold in Alaska had raised over the boundary line between Alaska and British Columbia. But the sensation was confiltied to ill-informed people. Others knew that there could be no g - rotind for negotiation on that se t t - eject until the report of the joint commis- sioners appointed under the conven- tion made in 1892 between the U. S. and Great Britain, for the survey of the boundary line between Alaska and Canada, has been made, and that will not be for several months yet. Gen. Duffield, chief of the coast am! geodic survey, is t he commissioner on the part of the U. S. and D. F. King the com- missioner on the part of Great Britain. This centimission has completed the tield work of the survey and is now engaged in making the computatiems. As soon as they are finished the report will be made. Either government may then protest against the accept- ance of the report as tinat. In that case there would be work for negotia- tions, but there is none 11011\. Gen. Duffield has expressed the opinion that i,11 of the recently discovered g' (1(1 regions of the Yukon and Forty -mile creek are within the jurisdiction of the U. S., and his opinion is doubtless based.ost, the survey. According - to the annual repOrt of Conttnissittner Leechren, of the 17. S. pension bureau.' the men whom the records show tee have done the least fighting are the ones who are the cI amorous feir pensions. Probably the most striking feature about this report is its charge that for fear of decreasing the amount of pension money paid in their communities, citizens have thrown obstacles in the way of the special examiners who have sought the necessary evidence to convict fraudulent pension attorneys. That's saying a, great deal, and it will be strange if. Commissieener Le,ehreti 'doesn't hear from that charge more than once. , The total number of pen- sioners (en June 30, 1895, was 970,404; the new names added footed 39,125 and old ones restored 4,205. The deaths numbered 27,81b and those dropped for other reasons 14,575. The net in-. crease in the number of pensioners for the year WaS 860. The commis- sioner estimates that $141,450,000 will be needed by the pension bureau for the next, fiscal year. Notwithstanding the semi-official frowns and private timidity the inass meeting to express sympathy with and for the Cubans in their effort io secure freedom was held on schedule time and it was largely attended by rroninitent citizens of Washington, and was both patriotic and religious to a certain extent. It opened with the singing of America and closed with the singing of Old Hundred. It was presided over by Corporal Tanner, a gentleman 1110re or less witl,'ly krIONVtl, and the speakers included Rev. Dr. J. E. Ran- kin, president of Howard university. and Mrs. John A. Logan: There was not hing revolutionary in the resolie - t ions adopted, they being confined to an expression of sympathy and an ex- tension of the moral support of those who voted for them. Unless the telegeaph has inisin- f..rmed us, there must lee' more signs of that coming war with Great Britain. which Senator Chandler, of New Hampshire. and Representative Greut . of Vermont, have been predicting, en N ew Englauel thaiLt here is iui Wash- ington. If not those twee gentlemen imist he victims of nightmare sir intli- gcstion. as nobody in Washington appear , t(1 1•Xpect anything of the kind, 0 in the contrary. it is the- gen- eral impression that the diplomatic flurry over Venezuela will readily be settled ley diplomac',. b re c of J.
