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.

Desieris in Horse@ and ( at i r ~AO Hardin Meat Market ve Beets Paying Crop. Inquiries directed to the local honk ors, county assessors and postmasters throughout the United States, where sugar factories have been located, brought commendatory reports regard- ing the benefits derived from the beet sugar industry, says the National Maga- zine. One question asked. was: ''What gross proceeds per acre are your farm- ers able to secure in beet culture?\ The lowest report was US an acre and the highest $180; the average of all was $69.40 per acre. Another question asked: \As the farmers become fatailar with beet rais- ing, are they more or are they lose anxious to raise beets?\ AU answered that they were More anxious; that the interest was increasing, and in all hut one case the acreage was extending. To the question: \Have farm mort- gages increased or decreased since the erection of the factory, and.to what ex- tent?\ All but two stated that they had decreased, some materially, some 25 per cent, some 30 per cent; one, that very few farms were ,now mort- gaged. Two states that farm mort- gages had increased owing to the fact that renters were becoming . able to buy on partial payment. Another' questitm asked was: \The ayeroge price for agricultural lands prior to the location of the factory .,; id at the present time?\ Two gave no price before the factory was erect- ed, the land being a desert and of little value; the land in one of these sections now being worth 4100 an acre, in the other $150 an acre; of the otteirs the smallest increase was 20 per cent, the greatest 250 per cent. The average price of all was /84.28 an acre prior to the location of the factory and $75.25 at the time of the report The average increase in value was 124 per cent. But this was not the whole of it --merchants and real estate men were henefitted; in fact the whole commun- ity. Another thing about the beet sugar iudustry is the fact that it is impos- sible to make a trust out of it without taking the farmers into the deal,, and the factories must be scattered. ' About Tariff On Paper. \What a difference in the morning.\ The truthfulness of this saying has been fly realized and experienced by more than one person in every state in the Union. There are also marked differ- ences in other ways. For instance we have before and after election views. and in this regard we print below the after.election convictions of the Bil- lings Journal. All readers of that paper will note instantly that \there's a great difference after election.\ - It says: The print paper manufacturers are resisting the reduction of the tariff on their products on the specious plea that their labor would enter competion with Canadian labor. In the lumber hear- ings before the ways and means com- mittee it was clearly and very emits' shown that the laborers in the lumber camps and sawmills of Carnal% are paid quite as high wages' as those on this side of the line, and it has also devel- oped that the employes of the Canadian paper nulls get, if anything, higher wages than do their American com- rades. We have it from James J. Hill that it is absurd to suppose there is any marked difference in the wage male between the two countries. There is ample evidence to back his assertion. We are near enough to the boundary here to know that he speaks truly. The present tariff on print paper is 419 a ton, and the paper manufacturers are going to resist any effort to reduce the wide margin of profit now enjoyed by theta withotit \yielding any cor- responding benefit to their workmen. This matter of the price of print paper is one that is of vital interest to every man and woman of the country who read the news of each day given by the newspapers. An eastern paper. commenting on the proposal of the paper makers to advance the price of print paper, estimate* that the addition of one cent to the price of every daily sold in the United States --which would be made inevitable by such an advance- would cost the people of the conntry $62,000,000 a year. And yet the entire payroll annually of all the paper mills of this country only $9,000,000. And this in the face of the claim of the itiannfacturens 'hat they are seeking to protect their wfl workir. , nen against Canadian ...a. ; • he matter the Minne- ii.,11. urnal comes pustty close to the bulliteye with the following shots: 'If it he true that the cost of produc- ing news print paper is increasing. .ongress might well throw off the 01 a Gin tariff in part or entirely, thereto reducing the cost of the American newspaper to about its old level, and making it unnecessary to ask the American public to pay $62.000,000 a year for the benefit of the paper man- ufacturers. \The application of the principle laid down in the Republican national platform to the case of paper seems very plain. The platform says: \In all tariff legislation, the true princi- ple of protection is best maintained by the imposition of such duties) as will equal the difference between the cost of production at home and abroad, together with a reasonable profit to American industries.\ Now the differ- ence between the cost of production of paper in the United States and Canada is practically nil, The ways and means committee has, therefore, only to con- sider what constitutes 'a reasonable profit' to the manufacturers.\ Carwile vs. Jones. Nat. G. Carwile was granted judg- ment against Lorin T. Jones in his contest for clerk of the district court by Judge Stewart at the close of the hearing yesterday, the recount by Judge Stewart having given Mr. Car - wile a majority of two. The decision will be appealed. As it now stands, however, unless the matter is hoard in the supreme court before the first Monday in jan- nary Mr. Carwile will succeed Fred H. Foster as clerk of the district °mut. It is hard . to tell just how •:)J11 the case will come up. The attorneys for Jones may take seine time to prepare their bill of exceptions, then there will be sixty days _for filing the transcript. If the usual procedure is followed, 45 days in which to answer may be filed and 45 days for the res . pondent to re- ply. Of course this time may not be all utilized. When the contest Was started, on the face of the official returns .Mr. Jones had a majority of 10. By throw- ing out ballots and other changes, the result became a tie on Saturday night. Yesterday Mr. Jones gained voter( in precincts 2, 8, Laurel and one other, while Mr. Carwile gained two at Har- din and four at Broadview where four votes\ which the voters testified had been cast for Mr. Jones, were thrown out on the groand that the voters were not legally. residents of the state. In the raiiount Judge Stewart *count- ed three more votes for Carwile than the election judges gave and nine less for Jones. About 25 votes for Jones were thrown out and about 15 for Car- wile.—Tuesday's Gazette., The Hustling West. Does advertising pay? There are a number of enterprising towns that would laugh at this query. They are proving every day that it does. For instance: The people of Eugene, Ore., recently raised $15,000 to advertise the interests of the town and Lane county. Eugene has had one year's experience in pro- motion work, and found it a dividend payer on an investment of $10,000 in 1907-8. The 1900-9 fund, raised on the eve of the national election, reprZsents a contribution of $15 for every voter in the town, and as compared with what other cities have done is probably the largest promotion fund, per capita, ever reified by any city in the United States for such a purpose. The money will be used in general advertising. Five thousand dollars has also been raised by the people of Galdetelale, Wash., to ex- ploit the resources of Klickitat county. Thirty-six hundred dollars was raised in' the first 86 minutes of the campaign. How much have the people of Hardin and the Big Horn valley spent toward advertising the country they live in? What is being done in the way of plac- ing the advantages of the country be- fore the thousands of hoineeeekers who are coming to Montana? Can we ex- pect to hold our own against other com- munities which are alive to the situa- tion and spending their money to extol the good things they have to offer? A comparison of this country with any other in the west is all that is required, but we can not even do that without firm interesting the homeseekers in the splendid opportunities we have to offer.

Through the real estate agency of Rankin & Mitchell the Mike Abbuehl homestead of 160 acres, 12 miles north of Hardin, was sold last Saturday to Howard Cone of Lincoln, Nebr., the consideration being $8,200. ThatAbbuehl homestead is considered one of the best of the many excellent farms in that neighborhood. It is un- der the Low Line Ditch and from the upper to the lower side has the ideal slope for irrigation, a sandy loam soil and every acre of which can be plowed and cultivated. The price, $20 per acre, exclusive of water, is a handsome one for a relinquishment, but it is said to be well worth the money: Mr. Cone is at present attending the Nebraska Agriculture College, from which he will graduate next year. He filed his homestead papers on the land last Saturday and left Hardin Sunday night for Lincoln to resume his studies, but will return in the early spring and commence extensive improvements. It is his intention to farm scientifically and everything done on the farm will be to that end. His father, C. F. Cone, a retired business man, was here with him and assisted in comminuting the ,deal. From Hardin the elder Cone went west and will visit the irrigated sections of Washington, Idaho, Utah and Colorado to gain information re- garding irrigation. He, also, will re- turn to Hardin in the spring 4 and will probably remain permanently. Change Teachers. Miss Clara Woodard, who has been teaching the Hardin school, left last Sunday night for her home in Lincoln, Nebr. At the time Mien Woodard left she announced that her departure was occasioned by the serious illness of her mother, and that she would return at the earliest possible moment and re- sume her work in the school. Before leaving she arranged with Mrs. J. W. Johnston to till her place during the time she would be away. Later de- 7telopments have shoWn, however, that it was not Miss Woodard's intention to return, and the fact that so far as known her school work was satisfactory to the patrons of the school and to her as well, -causes wonder at her strange and unwarranted manner of retiring from work here. Mrs. J. W. Johnston will complete the term and as she is a lady of many years experience in this line of work and perfectly competent our school will suffer in no wise by the change. Haytien Government Overthrown. Revolutionists under the command of Gen. Antoine Simon have overthrown the government of the island of Hayti and proclaimed Gen. Legitiine provis- ional president. Nord Alexis, the de posed president, was forced to seek ref- uge on the French training ship Trouin and was subjected to 'the grossest in- sults in making his way from the pal- ace to the wharf. Deserted by his ministers, abandoned by those he had put in high places and 'reviled by the populace, he was forced to make his ~ape through the representatives of the French government. Port An Prince, capital of the island republic. is in the hands of the insurgents and the populace, a veritable mob. It feared the present trouble \\ ill culmi- nate in a factional war, and about the only hope of averting such .a calamity lies in the fear of the Huytiens that the sailors and marines, now in the harbor, may be landed to protect the interests of foreigners. More About Railroads. General D. C. Dodge, ,•hairrnan of the board of directors of the Colorado 3c Southern railroad, is authority for the statement. \that as soon as finan- cial conditions would permit his com- pany expected to clone the gap of 15 to 20 miles in its line eolith of Cheyenne. Wyo., and extend its line north of Cheyenne which now reaches /rill Junc- tion some 830 miles further to a piint on the Yellowstone river, where it would oonnect with the St Pan] and Hill lines.
