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.

However wide the differences of opinion concerning his ability or his policy might be, the large public had not suspected that he was a senator entitled to go out in disgrace. He went down in a heap; he was without a good defense. The little satisfaction he gets out Of the events that have culminated since election is that, any- how, Taft is ml to be senator. That is nothing mofe substantial than a drowning man's straw. A Great Center, The Tribune is of the opinion that the editor of the Billings Gazetae real- ly, actually, truly and sincerely be- lieves that Billings now is, or at some time will be, a railway center, gate- way, hub, axis, or something of the sort in a way connected with rail- roads. Here is some of the good things he ocassionally slips to the readers of that paper: \Here (meaning Billings) all of the niads that lead north, south, east and west meet, and from this point (mean- ing Billings) they all radiate.\ • loliinas is al the caws ways, and through it all traffic must pass.

Major Reynolds, In- dian agent, has recogeized that a bridge is necessary for the development of the Indian lands: that before white men will go in and lease these lands there must be suitable roads and a bridge across the river.. It is the policy of the governinent to lease the agricultural lands to white settlers and in order to de so it will devolve upon the Imalirni department to assist in milking it leis sible ft ii' renters to gain nceess tti the land. Major Reynolds has studied the conditions thoroughly and is convinced that the interests of the Indians demand a suitable bridge at some piint near Hardin, either at the month of the Lit- tle Horn or at the mouth of Two Leg - gins. While not stating so with auth- ority, the Tribune is informed that Mr. Reynolds will reconnnend an ;iiipropri- ation from the Indian funds of $10,000 for this purpose, and it is altogether likely that on his recommendation the department- at Washington will give its approval. The Is lard of county ci 'minis- sioners of Yellowseine comity, it is be- lieved, will appropriate an equal sum, and it is hoped that the Rosebud teirinty board will appropriate a reasonable and just amount for the necemmodation of citizens of that county . living in the dis- trict directly eaet of Hardin and who are compelled to cross the Big Horn at all wits , ills of the year. Invitations have been extended to the members of the board of county corn- missii ewers of Yellowstone and aehml counties, and to Major Reynolds, to meet in Hardin at some early date to ciinfer and if rseisible decide on building tie' bridge and select the site. After a thori winch discussion of the bridge question. rentine matter wee dis posed of, including the appointment of II) the company circles throughout the country. Th ,, big gatherings were orderly lint reithaeiastic. All the labir leaders dwelt at length on what they di,•lartal to lie the danger to poPular form of go‘s , rnment that lies in the misuse of , the injunctive by the ceurts. Resolutions deciaring it the deter- mination of labor unions in this city to give Onnpers, Marrison and Mitchell both moral and financial mule\ ire tak lug equal risk with them in so doing were unanimously adopted.

Whitney treasurer - elect, and the successful aspirant for the honors and emoluments id clerk of the district court. For this position both Nat G. Carwile and Lorin T. Jones appeared and made demands. Fred H. Foster. present clerk, positively refused to abdicate. He refused to surrender to Jones on the ground that he is not elected to the position: Carwile's de- mands were refused for the same reas- on, and in addition Mr. Foster claims that the decree on which Mr. Carwile claims the office calls; for the position on the cancellation of Jones' certificate of election issued by the can viissilia board of Yellowstone county. Foster also claims that Jones holds no sut:ii certificate as the only one in his posses- eion was issued- to him by Conn ty Clerk Whitney. . In the meantime Mr. Foster will continue to hold office until the contest case of Carwile vs. Jones pending in the snpreme court is de- cided. E. Dry C.
