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.

THE MISSOURI GIRL The Missouri Girl, which will be the offering at the Orpheum Monday, March 30, has been on the road contin- uously for fifteen years and for the past six years two companies have been presenting thisf ever poplular play. It has been seen in every state and territory in the Union, with pos- sibly two exceptions, and last season one company toured Canada, where the play met with the same remark- able reception that has characterized its tours of the United States. The popularity of the play is not limited to any particular section. Wherevr It goes it is the same story, crowded houses and delighted audiences. Other plays that have been before the public deteriorate and frequently managers foist inferior companies. ii the public with low -salaried actors in the principal roles. Fred Raymond has always kept his companies up to standard and that is probably the rea- son for his remarkable succese with this sterling comedy. Year after year the companies visit the various cities fortunate enough to be on their routes and invariably the companies are equal to those of pre. vious :Tears and from time t3 time improvements , are being made that strengthen the organization. This season the vaudeville portion of the show has received Mr. Ray- mond's careful attention and the country \birthday party\ offers an op- portunity for specialties that has been taken advantage of. Five first-class vaudeville num ers add 1.1 strength to the perfprmance.

SENATOR MYERS' COAL LAND BILL IS DEFEATED Leasing Provision Proves Fatal to Bill for Sale of Land to Republic Coal Company. WASHINGTON, Mar. 1:6.—Senator La Follette was yesterday responsi- ble for the defeat of Senator Myers' bill authorizing the leasing of a tract of coal lands in Musselshell county, Montana, to the Republic Coal Com- pany. The roll call on this bill re- sulted in a tie vote, 27 to 27, but be- fore the vice president could an- nounce the result, Senator Gore, the blind esnator, was led into the cham- ber. Senator La Follette saw him, rushed down the center aisle, whis- pered in his ear, and immediately Gore cast his vote in the negative, thus breaking the tie and defeating the bill. Had not Senator Gore ap- peared, it is thought probable the vice president would have broken the tie by voting in the affirmative, thus passing the bill. Tacking a leasing provision to the bill which was done against Senator Myers' wish serVed to turn votes against the measure and caused its defeat. Senator Myers was particu- larly disappointed at the failure of a number of western senators to vote for the bill. The western men who voted for it were Chamberlain, Clark and War- ren of Wyoming, Perkins and Walsh. Westerners who voted against it were Ashurst, Brady, Lane, Ponder- eaux. Shafroth, Smoot and Works. Senator Myers was surprised at the result of the vote, for he had assur- ance of most of the western senators that they would support the bill, whereas 7 western senators, including Smoot of Utah, voted against the bill and others who promised to support It were absent, The vote probably kills the bill for the present sesssion.

S. Commissioner I Roundup Banker Gives Interesting In - Scene of Rushing Business Mon • formation About Conditions in day and All Week. California. In order to be on the ground early to file on additional 160 acres adjoin- ing their present homesteads, made possible by the recent designation by the secretary of the interior of lands In Musselshell county subject to en- larged homestead entry, many dry - lenders appeared at the office of U. S. Commissioner W. J. Jameson Mon- day, when filings were first accepted, and every day since then, to exercise their right to increase their holdings. There were some lively scrambles for choice lands which were sought by more thouone homesteader. In one instance one party beat another to it In filing before the local U. S. Com- missioner and the other not to be outdone that easy, boarded the morn- ing train for Lewistown and tiled on the same tract before the U. S. Land Office, thereby getting away with it. Quite a number from the Musselshell country were at hand at the land office at Lewistown Monday morning no as to be sure of the land they sought. It is estimated that practically all of the available public lands in Mus- selshell county will be taken up within a very short time under the new des- ignation, and this cannot help but be of value in bringing about the rapid development of this country. It will give many of the homesteaders an opportunity to embark in the stock business on a small scale.

INCREASED RATES TO MONTANA SUSPENDED -- C,mmission Acts ih Matter of Tariff On Fruits and Vegetables. WASHINGTON, Mar. 22. --The teis , iite commerce crtntri ,, on sue - oiled until after July 24 the opera- i on of proposed increased express males on carload shipments of fruits asii vegetables from points in Call- fornia to points in NIontatia. The ! posed increase would raise the Butte Daily Post: Mr. :old Mrs. C. F. Richardon and baby daughter of Roundup spent yesterday in Butte till their way home from southern California, where they went two months ago. Mr. Richardon Is mut. bier of the Citizens' State Bank and city treasurer. Ile enjoyed his va- cation, but is glad to get back to Mon tana. While in California Mr. Richer- dn o now niany unemployed men. \What to do with these men has become an important civic problem in California,\ he said. \We spent most of our time in the southern part of the state and there conditions, from an industrial standpoint, appear to be better than at San Francisco. At the latter city we saw streets crowd- ed with idle men. Agitators were making speeches on Market stree*, trying to raise funds for the contin- gent of the army that had marched on to Sacremento. Wirt- conditions seem to be very much better in this state than in California, and the fact Is very evident to all familiar with both places.\ Mr. Itichardon was impressed with the city of San Diego. \I believe that city has a wonder- ful future before it,\ he sakl. \With better railroad transportation, which now seems to be assured, that city Is certain to become a great commer- cial center. I learned while there, much to my surprise, that San Diego in an air HMI was closer to Chicago than either Los Angeles or San Fran- cisco. The curve of the coast is such as to give It the advantage in illstancc to markets in the cast. The city is growing at a remarkable rate. I think San Diego is determined to be one of the great cities of the Pacific coast.\ Mr. Richardon noted with interest the attempt made in some sections of California to secure water supplies for irrigation thru wells and pumping plants. \Where land is high priced that is eapable of high development, it is possible to use pumping plants to ad- vantage,\ he said. \This is particular- ly true in the San Joaquin valley, where thousands of acres are now being irrigated from wells. This is practicable where land is very valu- able. In some sections water is rats- ed nearly leg feet for irrigation pur- poses. in many parts of the valley, particularly its northern end, the wa- ter has to he raised only a short dis- tance. \There arc still wast areas of land In Callfriritio to developed. and one cannot fail to be impressed with the number et opportunities remaining in that state. People are going into the southern part by the tens of thou- sands: cities and smaller communities are growing in a way that we can scarcely realize. In the northern part development is slower. altho the op- portunities are about as many and as varied. For that matter our ow.n state Is not behind in these things. have yet to see any section that of- fers more to the homeseeker and in- vestor than our own.\ COUNCIL GRANTS PERMITS FOR TWO NEW BUILDINGS Ordinance Limiting Speed of Automo- biles in Roundup to Ten Miles An Hour Is Adopted.
