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.

KENDALL HRON1CLE. The North Moccasins Have Yielded Up Their usands and Have Millions Left for Honest Toil VOL. I. KENDALL, MONTAN ilANUARY 20, 1903. No. 44 WHAT ENE 111,L DO The Outlook for the Next Three Years Very Encouraging Hundreds of People Will Come to Kendall This Year and De- velop the Mines Kendall has grown steadily during the first two years of its life, and the towe-ie- now in a healthy state, with the molook for the third year being a record-hreaker in the number of people who will come to this camp and stake fortunes on its permanency and prosperity. The has been no time when Kendall wee at a standstill, or when the mines in this dis- trict have not come up to, and even went beyond the expectation of their owners in the amount of wealth pro- duced. The uet profits of the Kendall mine at present is $45,000 a month, and next spring, when the capacity of the mill is increased by the eddition of eight more tanks, the monthly profits will be over $00,000—a handsome sum of money to he cleared up every thirty days by a mine pot yet in active operation for two yeare, The Bari -King mine is eqnall,y toetinely proposition as the Kendall twine, iliet N hilt, the output is not as great just now, before this year is ended there will be another mill erected on the north end of the property, that will bring the output. of the Barnes -King mires to over 500 tons of ore daily, and even then the one bodies of this property will not be worked to any% here near their limit. Besides the two mines sa.entioned above, there are three properties now being developed as rapidly as possible, with the intention of erecting a mill on each of them before thio time next yeat, via: the Abby; the property -jest • nortlr - of the Abby which it SS bonded last No - em her for $40,000, to the Case -Wilson Milling Company; and two claims north of the Kendall mine, upon which L. S. Woodbury, a Great Falls mining map. secured a desirable bond last November. Development work on these properties has thus far proved satiefactory, and the men in control of them are enthusiastic and confident from the showing made with the comparatively small amount of money expended. So much for the pro- perties that are now being developed with the intention of erecting mills on them in the near future. Then there are numerous; claims, some of which adjoin the Kendall and the Barnes -King mines, and others on the same ore belt, and not far distant, that have little or no work done on them. Many of these claims have excellent surface iindicatione, but they belong to men without means to do extensive development work on them, and are consequently lying idle until capital comes here to invest in such propositions. It is only a matter of time, and a very short time at that, be- fore all such claims will be taken up by capitalists, Some of whom are already familiar with the great mineral wealth of the North Moccasin mountains. Hundreds of men will be employed in the development of these properties, and when they warrant the expenditure of money to build mills thereon, there will be no delay in their erection . , and SOO . the mines will pay large returns on the capital invested. It has been estimated by mining meh qualified to judge, that there will be 500 men employed in milling and prospect- ing the North Moccasin mountains before next winter sets in, and in three years' time there will, no doubt, be over 1,500 men employed in the mines and mills of this district, together with several hundred men who will find lucrative employmeut in the stores, in building up the town, and int various other chandele of labor necessary to carrying on the business of a prosperous and ever grow- ing mining camp. The people of Kendall may confidently look forward to an era of unpiesedsitted grow th and prosperity for the camp, and the development of the whoht Mineral belt of the North Moccasin mountains during the next three years.

The hotel is well furnished through- out, the bed rooms are cozy and are well lighted. Applications have already been received for rooms and board. Deputy Sheriff for Kendell Writ. Reese, a well-known and popular miner of Kendall, and who has been employed in the Barnes -King mine for the past six months, has been recom- mended by the local miners' union anti the local business men, for the appoint- ment of deputy -sheriff for Kendall. Sheriff Slater, who was permitted to have another deputy, by the board of county commissioners, asked the Ken- dall miriers' union to suggest a man for the poeitIon, and Mr. Reese was the union's selection. All that now remains for Kendall to have a real live officer of the law, is to have Sheriff Slater con- firm the appointment, which he no doubt will do. WO DEATHS IN LEWISTOWN A Well Known Character Passed in His Checks A Coal Miner is Fat illy Injured by the Falling of a Rock —Buried Monday Jacob Newman, .rt well known char- acter about town, died at the county hospital at seven o'clock Sunday morn- ing, having been ill only the day before. Ant operation was performed Saturday night, but the patient's system was so rUtt down that he was unable to success - hilly withstand tine shock :if the opera- tion. \Old Jake\ as he was known by °eery one who was at all acquainted in Lewistown, came to this vicinity about three years ago. He was always ready to run an errand or do a chore to accom- odate a friend. And that he was not without friends, is proven by the fact, that when he died, a generous subscrip- tion was taken up to buy a lot in the city cemetery, thus keeping him from being sent to tine potter's field. He was horned Monday. A ftils1 mine aceiclint oecur,ed le hire Harmon coal mine about three miles south of town at noon Saturday, when a heavy rock fell from the side of the tinier and struck a mieer by the aame of (Zia - man, in the chest, hreakinc several ribs and injurieg him internally. Ile lived until one o'clock Sunday morning, being conscious most of the time. Before dying he gave directions for communi- cating with his relatives who live in the east. lie was buried in the city ceme- tery Monday afternoon. A NARROW P80APE Chas.1Wraght and Wife Had an Exalting Drive—Were Thrown out While out driving Saturday afternoon Mr. and Mrs. Charles Wright, of Lewis- town, had a narrow escape from serious I njury in a run away. About three miles west of town they turned and started to come into town) %then the horses sudden- ly started to n)n. The buggy slipped on the ice throwing out both the occupants. Mr. Wright held on to the lines long enough to guide the horses into a wire fence, cutting up one of the animals rather badly. Neither Mr. Wright nor his wife were seriously injured, although both were more or less shaken up and bruised. BROUGHT GOOD PRICES Spirited Bidding Amongst the Ladles— Males Amount to Over 1111,000 The auction sale of the Deerfield Mer- cantile Company's bankrupt stock was very successful. The sales amounted to over $2,000, and many articles sold for more than the replier retail prices, while some sold for much less than cost. Tine ladies were tine most spirited bidn'e s at the sale, Ronne of them bidding on articles until they reached about double the marked price, but then they didn't want to go home thinking that their neighbor could outbid them. Mr. Hinson, eh() attended the sale the first two days, and Mr. Mears, trustee for the estate, expressed entire satisfac- tion with the result of the sale. Stock Inspector Theo Nichols and Frank Stephens returned Thursday from a trip of about two weeks out in to the bad lends looking into some reported cattle rusnling. They found that the rustlers were doing business in Dawson county so outside of their territory. izatalkidoey and bladder troubles can always be prevented by the use of Foley's Kidney Cure. L. C.
