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.

Wit.L ASK COUNCIL FOR REDISTRICTING OF BIG BOBBY BURNS NIGHT JOHN H. GRANT FOR MAYOR Groomed for Race for Mayor- alty of Roundup. With the approach of the spring city election interest is becoming keen as to the probable candidates for the important position of mayor, it beteg understood that Mayor II, E. Margliall will not be a candidate for re-election. Among those being prom- inently mentioned for the office is Alderman John II. Grant, tile well known architect and builder, and one of the pioneer boosters of Roundup. As alderman from the first ward for the past years Mr. Grant has shown himself to be fully qualified for the mayoralty, being of the progressive type so much to be desired in an am- bitious city like Roundup. Mr. Grant's boom is daily gaining sup- porters and it would not be presump- tions to predict that he will be hailed as Roundup's next mayor. PASSES TO HER REWARD Mrs. Chas.

Orr of Klein; At the next meeting of the city council a petition will be presented to that body asking for the redistrict- ing of the city of Roundup into wards more equitable in property valuation and population than they are at he present time. The first ward now comprises more territory than both of the other two wards put together, and the property valuation and population is equally out of proportion. The re- cent vote on the water bond issue clearly shows the unfairness of the present boundaries of the wards.
