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.

In the matter of federal control of comel doe . actions of any,particular it is due to the speculative folly and the want dishonesty of a few men of great wealth who seek to shield themselves from the effects of their own wrongdo- ing by ascribing its results to the act- ions of those who have sought to put a stop to the wrongdoing. But if it were true that to cut out the rottenness from the body politic meant a memantary check to en unhealthy seeming prosper- ity, I should not for one moment hesi- tate to put the - knife to corruption. On behalf of our people, on behalf of the honest man who earn.; each day's livli- hood by that day's sweat of his brow, it is nece.ssay to insist upon hon in business and politics alike, in all of life, in big things and little thingg, upon just and fair dealings as between man and man. Those who demand this are striving for right in the spirit of A raham Lincoln when he said, \Fond do we hope-feverently do we pray - that this mighty scourge of war may speedly pass away. Yet if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman's two hundred and fifty years of unrequittal toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn by the lash shall be paid by an- other drawn with the sword -as was said three thousand years ago, so still it ranst be said' \The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.\ with malice toward none and charity to- ward all, with firmness in the right, as God giyes us to !see the right -let us 'strive on to finish the work we are in.\ In the work we of this generation are In, there is, thanks to the Almighty, no danger of bloodshed and no use for the sword; but there is need of those stern qualities shown by the men of the North and the men of the South in the dark days when each valiantly battled for the right as it is given each to see the right..

Ill Health Compels the Governor to Go to a Lower Altitude -- -Boosts Montana. . Saturday last Governor Toole filed his resignation with the secretary of state, the eanliete take effect April let. At the same time the Governor issued a statement in which he gave his reasons for the step taken. Following is the statement: \My resignation has been tiled with the secretary of state, to take effect April 1st. At least that much notice), it would seem, is dueato my successor, who, under the aonstitation, must take up his residence at the capitol. I have been out of health much of the time for !several years, and at times have been obliged to draw too heavily main energies that ought to have been conserved. I have been aelmonished and believe that I ought to spend four or five months at least in a lower altitude, giving special attention te the recuper- ation of my health. Under the laws of Montana (Sees. 970--971: Political Code ) , the governor and certain other enumerated state officers are prohib- ited,from absenting themselves from the state for \more than sixty consec- utive days, unless on business of the state or with the consent of the legis- lative assembly.\ It may be that the legislature is without authority to thus interfere with the tenure of an office created by .thelaanstitution...,But if it is compe- tent to do so it is not improbable that a plausible pretence might be invoked to evade sa stern a statute, however wholesome a alight prove in u partic- ular case. Bat, whether the law is right or wrong, wise or unwise, 1 have no disposition to contest its plain pro- visions or defeat its manifest mean- ing. It is not, however, without deep re- gret that I surrender my commission nine months before its expiration and sever official relations with my tune. elates who have been most helpful to me in the transaction of the public business. I am reminded at this time, and may be pardoned for recurring to the fact, that my political life has covered a wide range; twice district attorney, member of the legislature, twice dele- gate to congress in territorial days, member of the constitutional conven- tion that framed the organic law of the state, and, with the exception of eight years', governor of Montana since its admission into the union. During my several terms as gevernor almost the entire body of existing laws has aven enacted. It would be strange indeed, if, dur- ing the last quarter of a century, in which party feeling has often run high, mistakes have not been made and criti- cism inure or less deserved had not followed; bat today, void of all ani- mosities -personal, political or other- wise -I find no comfort except in pleasant retrospect. I behold ,a great sovereign state flourishing in this mountain land where lens than 20 years age local self-gov- ernment 'wag but a dreatu. A capital building of noble prepertinns and ma- perb appointments has been erected, untouched by the breath of scandal, out of the proceeds of a federal land grant practically without cost to the state. A soldier's home, educational, charitable, reformatory an penal 'in- stitutions under state surervisiOn, suf- ficient in numbers ana adeqtrete in equipment for many years to come, are yet the rate of taxation for state par- , poses has never exceeded 21 mills. I The - reclamation of vast tracts of and land by a government system of irri- gation and the successful demonstnttion lof dry land farming in various sections I of the state are making homes for them, - ends and adding millions of dollars an- nually. to our permanent wealth. • (air banks. national and state, are firmly anchored in the continence of the people who have never for a me- i ment staggered under the strain that I lima lately fallen on similar inetitu- . tions in other states. Tway torehs-oontinental railroads span the state from east to west, a distance of over eight hundred miles; a third is half completed. and a fourat is not im lininch line. built and pro - air o re-establish navigation upon the upper Missouri and Yellowstone rivers: If we omit the condition in certain mineral sections of the state brought about by the temporary suspension of operations in a number of mines, mills and smelters, the industrial skies in Montana were never brighter nor au- gured better for the future. It is my firm belief that no state in the union posisesmes more diversified in- terests, a better climate, a higher stand- ard of citizenship, or offers more induce - mean; to the industrious homeseeker than does Montana. With those and a multitude of other factors ay) plentiful to enumerate. combining to promote the material prosperity of this commonwealth, it is not difficult to pre -verify the prediction that within five years our population will have doubled. To have served such a people as ours, who have in a generation carved out of the wilderness one of the proudest and most promising states in our great sis- terhood, is an honor esteemed beyond the power of mere words to express. It is my great hope to be able to return to Montana next summer and resume the practice of my profession. If 1 did not fully expect to return recuperated in health I would not be content ti leave until I had exhausted every, form of speech at ray connmand in testimony of. mrappreiefatien of the devoted friend - and generous forebearance of the good - people of this state with whom I have been closely identified for nearly forty years. .1.
