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.

H. set out some at the cardlnal,principlee of Thomas Jefferson and showed how these principles are to this day, the foundation stones of the democratic party. He drew some telling compari- son. between the tendencies of the two parties of today, emphacising the fact that the republican party is the or- cratic party, the party of the demo- cratic party, the party o fthe democ- racy'in its truest sense. As Mr. OOrraley proceeded, hle eloquence be- came more fervid, his sledge -hammer blows against the pally ef aggression, of trust control and arrogant an -Am- ericanism became more telling and he simply brought the crowd to their feet as he closed with a magnificent eulogy of the peerless leader of democracy, William Jennings Bryan. Nothing which has happened in many days has dqne more to enthUsie the democracy in Fergus county than the superb ‘ speeeh of Mr. Gormley. When he sat down. scores of loyal democrats from all parts of the room cgowded forward and warmly congratulated him When -Pee Meeting was again called to order Toastmaster Hitch introduc- ed E. O. Buscaburg. Although com- paratively new In active participation in party affairs, Mr. Busenburg is a most enthusiastic member and his speech was one of the best of the ev- ening. He took occasion to score the Roosevelt administration for the de- ficiencies which are becoming so ap- parent to the American people. The speaker asked what the present ad- ministration has really accomplished for the nation. It has been discovered that there is a beet trust, said the speaker, but them have been no.con- victions owing to some bungling work by Roosevelt's attorneys. The admin- istration has had a few hundred Philippines benevolently assimilated but that about the extent of its itc- compel:1:ms. H. L. Kalb was asIgned the toast, \Railroad Rate Legislation\ and math one of the good talks of the evening.

Over one hundred democrats, repre- senting almost every section of the county, met at Frillternity hall ras Fri- day evening and fittingly celebrated the anniversary of the birth of Thom- as Jefferson. The meeting was not on- ly a celebration of the birthday of dem- ocracy's patron saint but it was also a demonstration of the growing strength and of the confidence which the members of the party have In the ultimate and complete triumph of - their political organization in Fergus coun- ty. The large attendance and the spontaneous enthusiasm manifested and the feeling of absolute harmonY shown throughout the meeting spoke volumes for the success of the party at the polls in the autumn election. It was a glorious meeting, such a one, in fact, as to make a democrat proud of his political allegiance. The meeting was caned to order about 9 o'clock by E. Worden, who Ma de a very graceful address of tett- come. Mr. Worden limited himself t• ten minutes but in that time stirred the meeting to enthusiasm by his ringing words eulogistic of Jefferson and the principles for which he stood. In conclusion, he introduced John B. Hitch as master of ceremonies and toastmaster extraordinary. John pretended that it was his first appear- ance in the role but the manner in which .he performed The duty hrnpos- ,.., party in -the state of Montana and his prediction that the party will win a complete victory at the approaching election was accepted with confidence by all who heard him speak. The third speaker introduced bY Chairman Hitch was the orator of the evening. Hon. Austin C. Gormley of (treat Falls. Mr. Gormley was greet:. ed with the heartiest sort of a recep; tion upon taking the floor. After a f -w pleasantries tit the expense of • few of his frinds who were present,' d upon him would indicate that he had done nothing much but postpran- dial stunts the greater part of his eventful career. John started out auspiciously by tell- ing a good story, followed. with a few eloquent sentiments, called forth by the event which was being celebrated and then introdtmed Hon. B. C. Whitt of Garneill.as th e e first speaker of the evening. As a political orator, B. C. White has few equals and no superi- ors in the state. He is el/Ways ready, it matters not upon tilfh - at occasion be 'May be called, and was at his beat Friday evening. After op fete humor- ous remarks which elicited the great- est appleuse, he proceeded to cast'. gat4 to the republicans in a style which only he - could command. The republican, he characterized as thr party of monopoly, the democratic, the party of the people. Mr. White was heartily applauded after every telling point and wag warnolY con. gratulated after concluding his short but eloquent address. Hon. David. lifter was the next speaker introduced. Mt. itilger's sub- ject was \Legislative Experiences.\ He spoke of the urgent - necessity of sending to the state legislative as- sembly men of backbone and inde- pendence, men incapable of being in- fluenced by any corporation or organ- ization other than that of his organ' sustained •-titts- reimtattop _ Friday ev- ening. After giving the toaattnaster - a ifew warm shots, he launched In to a short but brilliant talk qpon current political topics, paying hi g respects to the attitude of the administration in its imperialistic policy a.nd on the trust question. He ridiculed its protection of \Ihfaeit industries,\ stating that even one of the infante has grow to such proportions as to be able to al- most swallow its protector. Henry Neill of Helena, state lard agent, was called upoll by the chair- man and although he had not expect- ed,g say anything during the evening, reaila1nade one of the best talks of the me g. His eulogy of Governor Joseph K Toole was cheered to tile echo and tire closest attention was giv- en to his remarks concerning the ne- cessity of the democrats of the coun- ty putting up candidates for the legie. lature who would honestly represent the people. ` w ' William A. tordon, Jr., was assign- ed the subject, \Fi‘mocracy of the Fu- ture.\ Like Charles Farm!, Air. Cor- don made his first appearance as an orator in Fergus county et this meet- ing and his speech was voted one of the bent ever heard by a gatherIng et democrats. Hi did not speak bet a few moments, but in those few Fitm- ents outlined the great work Of the party since it was founded by the Sage of iltonticello, a century and a quar- ter ago. He was listened to with breathless interest as he showed that' the democratic party has been the party of progression. It has remained steadfast to the undying principles ad- vocated by Jefferson during the life of a dozen or more great parties and will be pre-eminent when the present dominant party, the republican, has passed into history with the whigs; green backers end a half dozere-eth-- ers. Mr. Gordon closed his exception- ally fine talk With a story that was a \corker.\. E., W. Mettler spoke upon the \Dem- ocracy of the South.\ Mr. Mettler liv- ed for a few years in Texas and. is im- bued with the brand of democracy in vogue In that great state.
