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.

NEAR UBEI YESTERDAY MORNING ENGINE NO. 103 TURNS OVER ONE MILE EAST OF UBET. FIREMAN CHARLES SHUBERT CRUSHED 10 DEATH AND ENGINEER SHULL INJURED. NO PASSENGERS HURT. The first fatal wreck on the Mon- tana railroad occurred yesterday morning at 9 o'clock at the \shoe fly,\ one nine this side of Tibet station. Foreman Charles Shubert was thrown under the engfne and his life was crushed out almost instantly. Engi- neer Ole Shull was hurt but not suffi- cient to prevent him from continuing on the trip. One mile this side of Ubet in a long cut which has caused the road so much difficulty in snowy times by fill- ing with snow and making it practi- cally impossible for a train to force its way through. In order to prevent any delays from this source, the Iliad has built a track around the cut. This track or \shoe fly\ as it is called, has - been used since the recent storm filled the cut with snow. The train which left here yesterday morning in charge of Conductor Miller and a crew com- prising Engineer Shull, Fireman Shu- bert and Brakemen McGirl and Lew- ellin, started to leave the regular track for the new track and the rails evidently slipped as the engine . toppl- ed over, taking with it one box car. It was so sudden that neither the en- gineer or il•eman had an opportun- ity to jump, and as s. result, the fire- man was caught directly under the big engine (it was No. 103, the 100,000 pounder, just purchased a few weeks ago) and crushed to death. Shull, the engineer, was considerably battered up but his . injuries are of a minor na- ture and he will soon be all right again. None of the passengers were injured in the least as the passenger cars were left standing on tile track. A wreck train came from down the road and commenced to clean up the debris. They got the track clear last night about 8:30\b'c1ock end the train com- ing this way got through. The pas- sengers were held at the place of the wreck until the track was opened up and continued their journey last night. The amount of injury done to the engine cannot be ascertained until it is more carefully gone over but it is believed that it can soon be fixed up as good as new. The body of Charles Shubert, the firreman who was killed, was brought to this city last night and the inquest will be held today and tomorrow by Coroner Attlx and a jury which he has already summoned. Shubert was 22 years of age and has been on the Montana railroad about two months, having previously held a position as fireman on the Northern Pacific. He has relatives living in Livingston. The funeral arrangements have not yet been definitely made. COMMISSIONERS LfT 'CONTRACTS William Medigar Retains His Posit- ion As Guardian of the County Poor Farm.

IS FOUND UNEER ARGUS OGFICE Further Strtling Developments Are Expected in the Next Twen- ty-four Hours. A repirt from Lewistown to the Miner which has so long surrounded the killing of the old Jew, Samuel Studzinszi, in his tittle shack near the dear% of the business section of the city on the 23rd of last August is now about to be cleared up. Every one in the city is on the tiptoe of expectancy and senaationat disclosures are ex- pected almost any hour. The ofilegre are very reticient-eoncerning the en - matter but ft-ls known that -they have some clues which will probably lead to the arrest of one or two sus- pects within a few days. The great- est sensation caused since the arrest of the three young men of this city several weeks ago was produced last Sunday night when the plunder or a portion of it was discovered ,cached under the floor of a prominent busi- ness house. The goods were taken from be- neath the floor of a back apartment of the Fergus County Argus building some time after midnight last night by Under Sheriff Ed Martin. H. R. Watson and Hal J. Akins were pres- ent at the time the goods were taken from the cache. Together with the goods belonging to the murdered Jew were a miscel- laneous assortment of dry goods, dress goods and shoes which Mr., Akins identified as things taken from his store. the Golden Rule, vhen it was burglarized last May. The goods were discovered by acci- dent about two weeks ago by Hal Lei- ser, lineman for the Lewbitown-B11- tinge Mutual Telephone company who had occasion to get in under the Ar- gus building while putting in tst• wires for a telephone. He aaw two suit cases, one of witiel,was partially open and upon looking Into one of them found some dress skirts. lie kept his own counsel about the mat- ter, telling only his roommate, 011ie Farmer, about the discovery. Sunday evening Farmer was in the Occidental saloon and while In a somewhat talkative mood, presuno . kbly superinduced by' iFi liquor -ha had been indulging In, commenced to tell a friend of the discovery made by his roommate, Delzer. Under Sheriff Martin, who has been working on the case for several months, happened to hear a part of this conversation and at once started in to question Farmer. He later found Delzer who gave the whole thing away. Martin got H. R. Watson, business manager of the Ar- gus. and Hal J. Akins, one of the proprietors of the Golden Rule, d•nen town and together they went to the door .r.stt root?' af the Ar- gus and opened it up. The °Meer went down through the trap door and soon reappeared, bringing with him the two dress suit cases, taken from the Golden Rule, and a lot of more plunder taken from there and from Studzinskl's place. C. R. Bebb, a printer who has been employed in this city for the last five years, was arrested by the officers an hour or two after the goods Were dis- covered. The warrant for hisarrest was sworn out by Manager Akins of the Golden Rule who based his sus- picions on the fact that the tracks which were found leading away from his store on the morning after the burglary fitted Bebb's shoes. This was not considered sufficient evidence to hold Bebb on and the charge was dis- missed upon motion of the county at- torney when It was called before Jus- tice McFarland Wednesday afternoon. Bebb has always borne an excellent reputation in this city and he feels the disgrace attached to his arrest and Imprisonment very keenly. J. M. Vrooman, proprietor of the Argus, and business manager, H. It. Watson, are greatly worried over the fact that the goods fere found in the Argus building. They are both giving their assistance to the officers in their attempts to ferrit out the perpetrat- ors of the crimes. It is evident that the guilty ones are aware that they are being driven into a close corner. g usiness Manager Watson was reins- te his home r in the southern part of the city Wednesday evening, he observed someone following him. As Mr. :Watson quickened his steps, the man behind him hurried up and evidently made a determined effort to catch up with Mr. Watson. The gath- ering darkness prevented Mr. Watson from getting a good look at his pur- suer, but he is confident that the man intended to way lay and -probably as- sault him. Elks Score. A report to the Miner from Lewis- town says that the 'Elks scored a tre- mendous hit with their great minstrel performance last Tuesday evening. The house was crowded to its utmost capacity the first night and even then scores were unable to get in. For that reason the show . was given again Wednesday evening and a crowded house greeted the popular fun makers on their second appearance. The show was a hummer from first to last. Mr. J. H. Zimmerman, who had charge of drilling the boys, cer- tainly performed the task for which DOCTOR fOLEY 5 Cents FAILS AGAIN — • Sóott Lewistown Physician Appeals From the Decision of State Board Without Success. CASE BEFORE JURY Of DOCTORS The Local Physician Had Twice Fail- ed to Pass Examination—Case Noted Throughout State. Having taken twtY -- examinations be- fore the state board of medical ex- aminers and mailed - to receive a certi- ficate permitting him to practice med- icine in this state, Dr. John T. Foley of this city appealed from' the decis- ion of the state board and the case was tried before Judge Henry C. Smith last Friday. A jury composed entirely of physicians heard the case. This was the first time In the history of Montana that a jury compOtted ex- clusively of physicians had been em- panneled, tried a case and had its findings endorsed by a district Judge. It was upon the request of Dr. Foley that the jury was composed of fellow of his 7Woe.sIon.-- J. A. Walsh represented Dr. Foley, while Attorney General Albert J. Gal- en appeared as counsel for the state medical board. The jury consisted of Drs. Holden, Treacy, Cooney, Fligman and Miller of Helena, and Dent of East Helena. Only one witness was examined. That was Dr. Foley. He was ques- tioned at some length by Mr. Walsh and then by Attorney General Galen, after which the members of the jury propounded a number of questions. These were ati alcnz the, line of trues- tions submitted to Dr. Foley by the 'state board of medialc examiners. The case was then submitted to the jury, which at 3:20 this afternoon re- turned a verdict denying the applica- tion for a certificate authorizing him to practice medicine in the state of Montana. - Surveyors in the field.
