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.

7 4 • KENDALL CHRONICLE. 1 he North Moccasins Have Yielded Up Their Thousands and Have Millions Left for Honest Toil VOL. I. KENDALL, MONTANA, JULY 29, 1902. BOARD OF FOUIRINITRI Reports of County Assessors Up for Consideration. I Va`uations as Made by the 26 County Assessors of the State Differ Widely. If it were within the power of the state board of equalization to make changes in individual instances, it is probable that there would be num- erous changes .n its items in the re- ports of county assessors that have been seat up for consideration. These reports have shown that there is lit- tle uniformity in valuations as made by the twenty-six assessors of the state except in the matter of certain classes of live stock, says the Helena Independent. In some cases there have been no valuations fixed on bank stock and on franchises, and in some cases the assessment of stocks of merchandise is woefully below what it is believed it should be. But the state board can only direct the county boards to change the as- .sessment for a county as a whole, .tbo , chauge.on the different Italian be- ing a matter entirely for the latter officials. The student of the tax question will find in the office of the state board food for study for many days, if he will apply to Clerk J. J. Ryan for his tables made up from the reports of the assessors and showing the values on the different classes of tax- able property in the state. These ta- bles have just been completed and show a wide range in some instances. Live Stock Assessments. In the column showing the number and value of cows in Montana it. is found that Ravalli leaas in numbers, with2.534; Flathead, 2,424; Gallatin, 2,468. Teton has only 91. The price per head is generally about $30. The assessment in Powell county is $35, and in Lewis and Clarke $29.84. Choteau leads in the number of stock cattle, with 66,894; Custer, 61,- 090; with Silver Bow at the bottom burg struck for shorter hour,. Seven of the list with only 1,295. The as- sessment is usually around $23. In Lewis and Clarke it is $22.90, and in Missoula, which is the lowest. 3 121. 15 . In stock sheep Fergus county at the head, wi.__ 678,746, while Flathead has only 565. Jefferson's assessment Is the highest in the state, this being $3. Lewis and Clarke's is $2.4s and Valley's $2.25. Madison leads in the number of thoroughbred horses, with 521. Sweet Grass reports only nine, while Rose- bud has none. The valuation runs from $170.45 in Flatheas:, to $400 in Teton. Custer la at the head of the list in range horses, her number being 14,- 073. Dawson assesses this class of stock at $22.27, while Gallatin figures It at $10. Only five assessors figured on the value of franchises, these being the assessors of Lewis and Clarke, Sil- ver Bow, Cascade, Missoula and Yel- lowstone, and Butte's franchises are said in the report to be worth much less than those of Helena. The val- ue of goods, wares and merchandise in Silver Bow is put down at only $1,766.795. EMMETT HAMILTON INJURED. His Back Broken by a Hay Loader Fall- ing on Mon. Mr. Emmett Hamiltdn, his family and friends, can reasonably consider that his life was miraculously saved Tuesday afternoon, for though he suf- fered a terrible accident he is still alive and -rem= seems reasonable. While workin- wi. a patent hay loader on the hay ranch six miles be- low town and when engaged in mak- ing some changes in its position, the end of the loader fell upon him, strik- ing him to the ground and one of the tines or wheels at the end struck his spinal column, breaking it. Mrs. R. S. Hamilton was standing near and was only saved from being struck by a quick push from her son, who, saving his mother, was caught himself. A messenger came quickly to Lewistown and Dr. Hedges responded. When the doctor arrived the stricken man was suffering great pain and it seemed hardly possible that he could stir - vivo the shock. After a hasty exam - dilation removal to the city was order- ed, and about 1 e'elock this morning the back was placed in a cast and at noon Mr. Hamilton's condition was reported as excellent as could be ex- pected considering the seriousness of the injury. Of course the spinal cord was not severed, but partial par- alysis prevailed over the lower parts of the body until the fractured bone was straightened and its weight tak- en from the cord. Mr. Hamilton has been very unfor- tunate in the matter of accidents, but this last is the most serious of all. —Argus. W. R. WOODS HOME. has Returned With Ms Family frotn a Two Month. Outing. W. R. Woods and family returned to Lewiatown last week after an ab- sence of nearly two months. They are all feeling well and have greatly enjoyed the trip, during which they traveled by wagon across the south- ern part ce the state, west as far as Dillon, and south to Red Lodge, camp- ing out and devoting their time to rest and recreation. When at Dillon Mr. Woods deter- mined to go to Thunder Mountain and after renting a house for his fam- ily, went as far as Salmon City, but hearing nothing but discouraging re- ports, turned back. He says se heard of one man who drove in fifty steers for beef and when he arrived found everybody hungry but without the price to buy meat and he had to quickly bring out the herd in order to save it. At Salmon City he heard of Dr. Tillotson and party and be- lieves they have experiences , quite as hard luck as a majority of the gold seekerti. Mr. Woods was present at the open- ing of the Fort Hall reservation but had no disposition to join the mad rush. He will again settle down in his Lewistown home—Argue. No. lo. 001 15ai cents.

Under him direction, the mines at Gilt Edge were first successfully operated. Going from Great Falls, where he had 'for years been superintendent of the water works, to Gilt Edge, he gave great attention to the properties there and soon bad them on a paying basis. To his iinccesret here is due the subsequent development ot the mining industry of Ferges county, and it is understood that he haas bees well repaid. as the Barnes - King is netting about $4,000 per week and the Kendall will soon be paying late diyidenda—Trihune.
