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.

ZIX111.XXX.22.1 GET MY PRICES Before Building Hardin, Mont. Legislative Notes. A resident of western Montana is in Helena trying to get a bill through making it a misdemeanor to treat an- other pemm at a bar, or fur a bar- keeper or saloon keeper to ask a persen to take a drink. It is contended that most of the evil of drink conies from the treating habit anil that if it ‘‘ ere not allowed very lit t Ic ilitkffio•nti.,:s would result. Senator Donlan is breaking all records in the matter of introducing NEW s 'CHOOL HOUSE bills, says the Anaconda Standard. Thus fur he has introduced alwait one- half of all the sonatc's luoasure, ;intl if he keeps up the pace and a fair proportion of his bills get through, he will soon establish a record as the champi•01 lawmaker of this or any other session. While Donlan didn't make a very good race for governor, lit • has for years been the acknowl- edged leader of the senate republicans, and has the respect of all. His bills, too, are usually conservative in char- acter and of sound sense. CALL BOND ELECTION Saturday, February 20, Date Set For Voting. Added power will be given the Mon- tana railway commission by the present legislatare. 'At least this is the hope of those who have been interested in the progress and past success of the com- mission. The railway cvmmission has saved the people of - the State much in the shape of inter -state charges, and has published an exceedingly good map of t 1, besides a report. It has priuted an.! published these of its Own appropriation. Regardless of the recommendation of the governor, accompanied by regrets, that then) is no money which can be spared to Make an exhibition at the Seattle fair, it is more than likely that some provision will be made to have Montana rtcpresented. Governor Nor- ris saggested in his messrge that an ap- propriation fir the _establishment of a departmelit of publicity - be made. Mem- bers of the legislature are of the opin- ion that the best. poasible publicity at this time would be the titting repre- sentation of Montana at the Seattle fair, and the department of publicity can wait until another year whan Mon- tana is better oil. Seattle is in a neigh- boring state of Montana; thousands of visitors will pass through Montana to visit the fair, and there should be, in the minds of many - iveinbers, an appro- priation to mate a good showing for Montana at the exposition. After Montana Meat. The meat packing concerns of the Pacific coast are reacqng into Montana for beef cattle and hogs, and go even farther east for the latter. Montana has long been supplying the coast pack- ers with beef cattle and the numerous large iftigation enterprises in the state will make it possible for thousands more to be fattened during the winter months. During the past week one train load of hogs from Nebraska and a train of cattle from Sheridam Wyo., pegged through Hardin consigned to Seattle packers. As the irrigated lands of this vicinity are brought under culti- vation, producing tons upon tons of sugar beets and alfalfa hay, every farmer will be prepared to supply from one to three or more cars of prime beef during the winter and spring months. It is at this tithe of year that , the feed- ers secure top prices and the industry will unquestionably beet tine a profitable 'and popular one in this locality. 'Union Pacific Coming North. The Denver Times is authority for the statement that the engineering de- partments of the Union Pacific has been ordered to at once ira1icl the line.s of the Colorado & Southern north of Den- ver, and sari that a construction force of over 1,000 men will be thrown into the field as soon as they can be organ- txed. Since the Burlington and Hill interests; have secured control of the Colorado & Southern and announce that it will he extended north to a con- nection Nvit h the former line, it means that tb I ' in Pacific will build north into WM:4mi. The railroad editor of the Billings Gazette has already secured the main northern terminal for Bil- ling., which would indicate that Har- din will pr.anibly be touched lightly by the Unien Pacific in getting into Bil- lings At any rate the indications are Equipment for a surveying party to leave Kirby, Wyo., southbound, is be - lug secured and shipped tn that point b y oh,. u nT l ing t em If said that at ; least five different routes N% ill be sur- ! veved between that ikant and Guernsey I• • in order to arri e at the most issmomi and practieanie route If a desir able grade is found work on the ex- , tension will , , ennieni., isarlv in the year Inin. Question of Bonding the District for Building Purposes Will Be Submit- ted to Vote if the People. At a meeting of the trustees of school district No. 17, Hardin, held Wednes- day afternoon, an order was made cull- ing a special election for Saturday, February 20th, at which time the ques- tion of 'bonding the district for three per cent of the assessed valuation of all the taxable property on the assemomimint roll of 100S, for the purpose of raising meanm for the erection of a new and adequate school house, will be submitt- ed. The assessed valuation of the district for 114014 was *249,338.00. , Three per cent of that amount would raise a fund of 117, 181.t54. With that ain.)nut it is the opinion of the trustees that a build- ing can be erected of sufficient size to answer the needs Of the district for seveial years to come. No plane have as yet been submitted, but it is the in- tention of the trustees, in case a bond issue is voted, to adopt some plan that will provide ter eeiargement in the fat are. That more school room will be needed by another fatl is admitted. ln fact, the school room at the present time is filled to overflowthg, every seat being occupied and chair's placed in every foot of available space are tilled by scholars. During the past month it- has been found necemsary to refuse admit - tame to the school of non-resident pupils who were desirous of attending the Hardin school. And in as much.. as more room . will be required another year it has seemed best to the trustees that while providing for present needs it. would , also be well to look to the needs of the very near future and erect a structure that will be not only a credit to the district but meet all re- quirements fop' years to (\nine. _The only way this can be done is by _bond- ing the district, and that the question submitted will be crrried almost unani- mously is practically leisured. The resignation of E. A. Howell as clerk, which position he has tilled ad- mirably since the formation of the dis- trict, was received and accepted. Mr. Howell's increased duties as cashier of the First National bank made it. nec- essary for him to tender his resignation. lie position -was filled by the selection of J. H. Kifer, Hardin's furniture dealer. -The trustees also ordered a sidewalk built from the sellout house to a con- nection with the walk on CrowAvenue, in front of the E. A. Howell residence. Roasts the President. It remained for Representitive Will- ette of New York to say a good many things about President Roosevelt that thousands of others have thought but kept to themselves. In a bitter attack on the chief executive in the house of representatives last Monday he char- acterized the president as \a gargoyl and this pigmy descendent of the Dutch trades people\ and charging him with having \established a court in the White house which would have de- lighted the heart of his admired Alex- ander Hamilton. Representative Willette took for his theme \The passing of Roosevelt.\ Mr. Willette declared that \consis:: tency is a jewell which the gargolye is always throwing to the swine.\ No king, he said, in any limited monarchy was ever half sou exigent, or ever half en implacable. \For a president, - he added- \you must go back to Natsolean the great, the oldest member of the gargolye's Annias club, ‘N ho used to ask the wive. of his thrifty favorites whether they i•ould only afford one gown a year; who said (ince to the wife of one of his fighting marshals. 'your dress is dirty.' and who insisted on doing all th.• inat,4nnaking in his official circles.\ The democracy if Lincoln. he said, the bluff Americanism of Orant and Cleveland. the American su- avity of Arthur and K inley had pass- e d into history - along with the jovial- ity of Garfield and the nt.11 oomformist thrift of litithi.rford B Hayes. \We have a king and a court now.\ Mr. Willette \as good an of the real thing known to the nobility of monan hial countries isthe surance. scion of a family of trading Dutchmen can concert.\ At this juncture Mr. Willette culled the roll of the so called Annias club and said: The earth is intoxicated . and reels around our jocularity. He alone is t' e peusummifleation of sobriety, temperate nos h .4 statesman, cahnnesm in speech and action. The ever moving hay tender hurries over -the field throwing upward the clover of politics and tim othy of zoology, the blue grass of his tory and letting each blade fall a little drier than it was before. \Jealousy you can read in the gar goyle's distorted features. You loth on those twisted lines and it is my). Oh, I40 easy, to understand the .insolence toward Democracy, the one great figure of the Owlish war, the hero who took Manila with the worst ships a rotten bureacracy can find for him. \The persistent defamation of Ad- miral Schley, who really fought the battle of Sautaigo bay. The insus on (;eneral Miles whose counsel was ignored in the expensive blunders of the land campaign at Santaigo.\ The president, Mr. Willette declared. showed his teeth at all real heroes \because real heroes are gall and worm- wood to bogus ones,\ Continuing his denunciation, Mr . Willette -charged that the president \had bulldozed President Castro. had seen the Filipinos brutally treated; had marooned Colonel *tewart, alum he did not like; had kept a woman from earning an honest living by tell- ing the truth; had allowed scandalous conditions to exist in the army and navy; had compelled his subordinates to act 1113 hunting dogs for the czar ef Russia, in trailing down men who have fought for liberty; had practically re-established the John Adams alien and sedition, had forced desertion from the navy by allowing intolerable treat- ment of sailors at the hands of the aristocracy of Annapolis officers; had permitted the degrading of soldims at West Point who had been put to itkenia.1 work, and had. given a Scotch verdict iii e.onnection with the alleged Panama 'sesindal.\ • In conclusion he said. among other things: \You may say then that one individual gargoyle doesn't -count for so much after all. Not in the develop- ment of the centuries, but he counts vitally and continuously as affecting the people who have to live under him. And the change from a Nero fiddling while Rome is burning to Vespasain calmly devoted to securing as good government as the tendencies will per- mit is a change to be as devoutly we! - seined by• us as by the ancient Ro- mans.\ The Editor. Who is it always whoops 'er up To make the village grow, And never lets a chance slip by His civic horn to blow? The editor! He brags in every weekly sheet About the town we love, And even scouts St: Peter's place He's heard of up above. The editor! Our town is far the nicest place Upsm this mundane sphere, And when it COttles to settlin' down The place to squat is here! The editor! From morn 'til night, year in year out, He lands us to the skies And then, some day, he takes a cold And lays him down and dies - The editor! They bury him out in the grass \Old Squires\ has passed away \He never seemed to get along.\ Is what the people say! The editor! And as he sleeps the sleep of death The natives, as of yore, Send all their printing out of town Just as they did before! The editor! -Byron Williams. Accident at Toluca. While approaching the station at Tohsca last Saturday night the paismen- ,ger on the Cody line collided with six carloads; of ice which had been left on the main track near the ice house at that place. The sudden stoppage threw the pas- sengers from their seats and badly frightened them. Mr. William Rozzner, of Denver. Colo., was thrown from his seat and injured internally. He went to Bil- lings on No. 43, Sunday morning, where he received medical treatment. other than Mr. Rozzner no one was reported injured. C.
