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.

Wages in Montana. It is interesting am! important to note from a We balletic) of the censue bureau ...times in the mutter of wages paid Mon- tana leads all other states. One Might have supposed that the mining excite - meat, in Nevada would have raised the rate of wages in that state above those hove, but Nevada still ranks below Mon tuna, although it comes second in the lint. The figures given by the census bureau are the actual wages earned by the workers on an average, including days or periods when they were out of work or f4 ,r some other reason did not work. It is shown by the bulletin that the average wage in Montana was $18.- 19 per week. In Nevada it was $17.70, Arizona $16.15, and Wyoming $15.75. Among the more populous states. Illi- nois comes fifteenth on the list, with an overage of $11.55. Ohio pays $10.63, Pennsylvania $1(0.52, New York fi0.40 1 and Maseachnsette $9.68. • Nortli'earo- lina., with .•;-1.:Itt, and South Carolina with $4.68, reported the lowest figures. Money in Good Cows. A. L. Strife, the well-known ranch- er, figured up his receipts from cream sold to the load creamery during the past year, ending May 28, the other day, and he was very well pleased with the result. He found that after the family had used all the cream and milk it wanted, and after making butter enough 0 to supply the whole family, which was ! quite large during the punt year when ! haying and threshing was in progress, at which time extra help was employed, 0 the average receipts per month per cow for entire 12 months was exactly 01.14. • !

Before it was written and before it was presented to the state ! convention, Ellis consulted with Taft.. Theplank had the unqualified endorse- ment of the secretary of war, and there has been no concealment of this fact. The Ohio republican platform is just as much the personal platform of Taft as the Nebraska democratic platform is the personal platform of William Jennings. Bryan. It is a distinct and definite pledge that the tariff tax shall not more than \equal the difference between the cost of production at home and abroad. together with a reasonable profit.\ John Dulzell and other stand -patters will never consent to this, until they have 4 o. It would entirely wipe out the protection now enjoyed by many articles the production of which American ingenunity has in late years made it possible to produce at home cheaper than they can be made abroad. It would mean a wholesale reduction of the Dingley schedules. If any one im- agines it is going to be early to commit the Chicago convention to such a policy he lacks appreciation of the strength and resourcefulness of the high tariff wing on the party. The men who will lead the forces of the stand -patters are veterans who have had years of training for just such a struggle. They have at their fingers' ends every known argu- ment in favor of maintaining the exist- ing schedules, and they know how to use these arguments most effectively. That Taft will he nominated now lacks only' the formal admission of the opposition. But that Taft will be able to commit the republican party to the tariff program outlined in the Ohio platform is another matter. It would 'not be the first time in political history that a convention nominated a candi- date for president and at the same time refused to accept his views as to party policy.

The Denver Post's endurance race for horsemen, from Evanston, Wyo., to Denver, was finished in Denver lust Friday at 2:84 p. in. The race started from Evanston on the Saturday previews and was over a 552 mile course. Workman, a cow -puncher of Big Horn county, Wyo., rode a \brunch\ culled Teddy, owned in Cody, led the race for several days but was overtaken by Wy- kert, of Severance, Colo., on Sum, and these two riders finished with their mounts neck and neck together.

Cu to, rode Blue Bell. a Hambletonian bred mare, and he finish- ed several beim behind the third wan. All the ether homes in the race were western bronchte and their superior powers of endnranee were thus clearly shummstrated. The Post hung up prizes amounting to about $1,800 to the winners. • Another canal will he taken from the Big Horn river abont twenty milers be- low Hardin. It will irrigate 8,401) memos near the mouth of the Big Horn. The promoters have organized and incorpo- rated the Big Horn Ditch remrsany and will proceed at once with IN et inict work. ACTIVITY IN VALLEY Both Canals Will Be Completed and Supply Water for the Irrigation of 30,000 Acres of Land Next Year. According to promisee, Mr. A. Gray commenced work on the Low Line Ditch last Monday morning. Two machines and about forty teams are on the work. Mr. Gray states that the earth work will be completed in four months. The head gate and other structural work will be well along by that time and the entire canal will be ready for water not later than November 15th. Farmers under this line can from now on pre- pare their ground for crops with aguar- antee of water in abundance and a cer- tain yield. On the Bair and Shepherd canal En- gineer Gerharz, with a crew of men, commenced surveying Wednesday morn- ing. This work will consume about ten days, after which, it is understood, the ditching will start immediately. It is announced that J. S. Tnompson of ! Sheridan and Wm. Higgins of Bill- ings have contracted with Bair and Shepherd for a large slice of the exca- vating on the canal. Mr. Thompson is now in Sheridan getting his outfit to- gether. and Mr. Higgins is moving his stock and grading tools down from north of Billings, where he recently finished a contract on the Billings & Northern railway. The Tribune is informed from a reasonably reliable source that both Mr. Thompson and Mr. Higgins are under contract to commence work be- tween June 20th and July 1st. \ Nlessre.

Now watch Hardin and the Big Horn %silky forge to the front. Watch us grow, People to Name Senators. There is a possibility that before long the people of Montana will express.; their preference for United States senator at the polls, the legislators being pledged to carry out the instructions of the voters. It may be even possible, as will be the case in Oregon, that a legislature of one political faith may be called up- on to name a United States senator of the other political faith. An effort is being ate -de to invite the initiative and referendum on thonlection of United States senators and Several other measures. Seven of the requisite counties, in which petitions along this line have been circulated, have had their petition; filed with the secretary of state and the friends t)f the measure declare that by July 1 there will be on tile at the state capitol petitions carrying the neotemey 5,000 names to secure for the voters an opportunity to express them- selves, ou whether or not they want to declare their choice for United States senator at the polls.-- Billings Gazette.
