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 CHRONICLE. VOL. 2. I he North Moccasins Have Yielded Up Their Thousands and Ha ve Millions Left for Honest Toll KENDALL, MONTANA, MAY 12, 1903. No. 8 AN OLD I1MER IN KENDAL George P. McClure has Lived Here Many Yeats Killed Buffalo and Placer Mined in the Early Days—Says These Hills Have Great Future Every person Who is at all familiar with the North Moccasin mountains amid their early history, knovts Geo. P. Mc- Clure, pioneer prospector in these hills. Mr. McClure was in town several dap.' ago for a supply of provisions, and be- fore leaving he made a brief visit to the cHRONICLM office. The old gentleman knows every foot of the Non ii Moccnsin mountains, he having prospected them for more than twenty years. He can tell many interesting stories of their early history when heffalo roamed in large herds where Kendall now stands, and of . •hair raising\ conflicts with the indians, and thrilling experiences a bile hunting wild game which in. the early days was quite plentiful. This interest- ing pioneer is seventy-three years young as Elbert Hubbard would say, and he resides in the gulch about two miles vreet of Kwndtill , end whitr Saes striff name. \Twenty-two years ago last March\ be nail& \I landed hi 'tli. gulch where my cabin still stands and where I have lived ever since. 1 haye done much placer mining in that gulch, and still do some when there is enough.. running water to make the work possible. .,Yes, I have washed out considerable of the yellow metal; of course I never kept ercount of how much, but no doubt it would Amount to 'Isere than $10,000. 1 have enjoyed prosperous seasons and have endured times of hardship and suffering, but that falls due to all pion - eerie So I have no complaints to make. '•These mountain are rich iumineraln and there a ill be many other big mines operating in this district in a few years. I have traveled over the entire North - xi eat and prospected the mountains of all the north-western states, but never was in a district that showed as miltdi gold ore as does the Kendall district. Every new mining camp is better for going slow at first and establishing a reputa- tion for permanency, in .lace of bootrZing to an extraordinary degree and thee to 'fall down' and suffer from over growt Mr. McClure usually buys a year's provisions at a time and he keeps them stored in a cabin situated about one mile from where he lives. Sometime during the last week in March the old gentle- man discovered that some unprincipled thieves had broken into his store -house and looted it of everything in sight. Mr. McClure is alert in mind and en- joys telling a good story; he reads much, and was delighted to get an armful of magazines that were Offered him to take home. \Send me the CHRONICLE\ lie said, be- fore leaving. \I believe that Kendall will support a daily newspaper sometime and I expect that I will be one of your snliscribers for thitt oleo.\ A VALUABLE PROPERTY Bonded for 11100 . ,000 to Solt Lake Cupl-: tallete;-lrbe Outlook Good Outside capital is by no means losing' interest in Kendall; on the coairary; the mining possibilities of this district are forcing themselves more and morel into prominence with the moneyer class whp are seeking legitimate mining investments. Kendall ham never yei had a set back, and the big gold mine in operation here are recognized in min; ing circles the worhEover to be the most. wonderful mines of their character that. have ever been discovered. It is not 80 difficult now as it was a year ago to interest capital in the 'level= opment Of claims in the North Moccasins that show reasonably good surface indi- cations. Salt Lake parties recently secured a $100,000 bond on two claims owned by H. O. Warelimm,:of Kendall. and Dr. W. A. Long and J. L. Stuart, of Lewistown. Extensive development work will im- mediately be commenced on t heft claims which are located at the north end of the Barnes -King properties. There is every indication that these claims will rival the great Kendall and the Barnes - King mines in the production of wealth. Miss Eveline Parrent, neice of Henry Parrent visited with friends in Gilt Edge for a few days last week. Joseph Wunderlin and M. L. Wood- man were in camp yesterday shaking hands e ith their many friends here. It F. Wareennadorff retnrned home early last week from Celle Bette where he hial been surveying some mining claims. Joseph McDonald, who received a severe cut in the back several weeks ago while working at the Barnes -King mine, is nide to be around again. \Curly's\ back is somewhat bowed, butt he will no doubt be \straight\ again soon. Mr con ety commissioners have award- ed to M. A. Adams & Co., a Minneapolis bridge building firtn, a contract to build flour bulges for a consideration of $9,.:99. The bridges are to be of steel and will be located as follows: one across the Judith near Philbrook, one across the Judith at Pleasant Valley, one ut Cotton - Weed MA one across Big Spring creek, on the Kendall road. Dick Young, of the Majestic buffer, has assigned his contract with the gov- ernment for the rental of the propoeed new building to be occupied as the poet - office, to E. C. Wilson, of Trenton, N. J. Mr. Wilson is a member of the Case - Wilson Cyanide Development Co., of Montana. He has purchased the lot upon which the building is to be erected from Ora Bennett for a consideration of $2,500, and will at once commence work preparatory to building. The building will be a two-story structure, the upper story to be occupied as offices by Mr. Wilson's mining company.—Lewistown Democsat. Wm, Gordon recently had a provoking mishap while driving on the Lewistown road, at the foot of the steep hill about two miles from Kendall. The road at that point was very soggy, arid when Gordon's vehicle got in the midst of it it stuck there. After much persuasion his home landed part of the rig on solid ground, but a section of one wheel re- fused to come out. Gordon had to aalk hack to Kendall and when he arrived here hie usual plcatient timelier a as somewhat reified. WilS 1 SERIOUS ROHN ifors.'
