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. ihe North Moccasins Have Yielded Up Their Thousands and Have Millions Lett for Honest loll VOL. 2. KENDALL, MONTANA, OCTOBER 20, 1903. NEIGHBORS HAVE A SCRIP 1st rs• - r! Over the Privilege of Using Water from a Spring. A Winchester Rifle, Many Flying Rocks and Red Hot Language Play an Important Part. The second chaloor in the Nelson -An- derson shooting affray, a hich occurred a week ago Monday, was delineated in Justice Jackson's presence on the after- noon of the 15111, when Robert Anderson and his wife appeared as defendants, to answer to the charge of tumult, preferred by Mrs. W. F. Nelson. The details of the difficulty are elaborate and so com- plicated, that w hen the statements of all concerned are taken in review, It Illxes even an extremely analytical mind to sift out the facts as they . occurred iii chrbnological order. , At the outset it may be well to sate that the episode upon which this article is based, was the outgrowth of a neigh- borhood row over taking Atter from a spring situated upon the public high- way and in front. of the Nelson and over which spring the Nelsons claim exchorive jeriadiction. The climax of this feed culmivated on the 11 th, when, in the midgt of a 411141114, Mr.. - Nene:tit, discharged her trusty W,incliester, after which she was disarmed by Robert An- derson. After Mrs. Nelson had discharged her Wiechester, and the contendrug forces deserted the scene at the spring, she thought over all that had happesed, and concluded that the proper cornea to pur- sue was to go to the county seat and give her version of the affair to the proper of ficiats. While at Lewistown Mrs. Nel- son was informed that w hclever court proceedings were contemplated they must take place before the Juetice iii Kendall. So Mrs. Nelson returned and swore to a complaint charging Mr, and Mrs. Anderson with agsault. Part of her evidence against i he defelatiallO1 was an injured arm and a lame -thumb, which she carried to court, and at the proper time they were filed as exhibits A and B. When the case came on for hearing there were no attorneys present to OEM - duct proceedings, so each side had tp be tent with giving their version of what happened . in their own language and in their own way. To sum up the evidence as offered by the two defendanta, Sum MeMurtrie, E. E. Wright and wife and Frank Keys, it appeared that Mrs. Nel- son wag first to assume hostilities. Mn. Anderson, in her statement, said Mrs. Nelson hurled rake and epithets at her, and wound up by firing a Winebeeter aimed in her direction. Mr. Andermon told how Mrs. Nelson hit him in the hack with a rock, and how later lie grap- pled edit her and wrenched the rifle from her vigorous grasp. Sam McMur- tre mid he saw part of the hostile pro- ceedings, and so did Frank Keys. Al- though 111r. McAltirtrie was a witmees for the people, hie evidence IMP not favora- ble to Mrs. Nelson. Mr. Wright was a long ,lishinee away when the,COntliCt was in full SA ing, yet lie beard the idle shot and Mrs. Nelson's voice reverberating through the each. Mrs. Wright heard the noise from her premises. Mrs. Nelson, in her version of the dif_ Ben I ty, deniedthat she shot at Mrs. s - derron. \If 1 had wanted to 1 could have shot her dead, for 1 am n handy with a rifle,\ is the way She put it. She Paid site only fired to frighten the crowd away. She denied having used bad language to- ward Mrs. Anderson, or having hit An derson with a rock ; hut' declared he struck her with a pail with such violence as to displace one .pf the bones of her right arm; while Mrs. Ander - Bon had dis- join ted her then& %%lib a rock thrown with unerring aim. Mrs. Nelson had no corroborating testimony to eupport her rtory as told in court, and as the wit- nesses for the defense backed each other' The famous lit renles mine, a hich is Justice located a short distance from Burke, idaho, ts estimated by its owners to he wot - th at least $10.000,000 because of the big f tlike recently made in its lower nel. The tunnel cam a ledge of en- nOus width. Part of the ledge is of first wieldy, running about 75 per cent. lead and 80 minces silver, while the re- mainder is concentrate ore. The min- eral is a fine•grained steel galena. The rich carbonate ore in the upper works lies to the westward of this poin:. It is thought if the tunnel has opened the ledge below the water courses the car- bonates will be replaced by galena, but this will not be determined for some time, as the carbonate zone is some dis- tance away. The new level just opened is 500 feet below the upper level, from where about 1000 tons of crude ore are being ' , hipped monthly. The stoves have been worked on the ore shoot for 300 feet towards the surface. The Early Struggles of the Owners of the Hercules.
