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.

'was TWO THE FLATHEAD COURIER, Poison, Montana 71Wwwkw. PlemabseIL WWI El Courier Letter Box To the Voters of Lake County: We, the undersigned voters of Lake county, hereby wish to call to your at- tention a pre -election promise of rep- resentative elect. Art Levisee, in which he said that if elected he would after the election meet the voters of our county in their halls, school houses. etc., and discuss their various legisla- tive problems and desiring to take ad- vantage of this kindly offer we invite you (the voters of Lake county) to join us in these discussions by arranging for meetings in your various localities, and most earnestly suggest that you include In your invitation the Senator -elect also: Too often we think that going to the polls and voting for some favorite can- didate or some specific referendum measure is the whole duty of the elec- torate. This is representative govern- ment and is all the government we have ever had and all that was originally intended for us. In other words we have never had a democratic government and may never have one. While rapid transportation and com- munication has made it possible even in so large a county as ours to have a pure democracy there is practically no demand to change our representative form of government. We have been content to join in some group move- ment to secure the enactment of special class legislation but no organization in our country has been all powerful with the result of compromise and more or less dissatisfaction, especially among the weaker organizations and to a still greater extent among the ever growing mass of the unorganized who are year- ly becoming more and more conscious of their unequal opportunities. This latter may be easily seen in the ever increasing \land slide\ elections and if we are to preserve our form of government we must learn to under- stand the social needs of this ever grow- ing class and Montana must do its part In enacting protective social security laws. This year new tax measures must be introduced. The drouth and depression have combined to decrease our usual sources of revenue to such an extent that new taxes must be devised. Tho it is not generally known it is as certain as any thing . may well be that this ses- sion of the Montana legislature will enact a sales tax in spite of the pre- election promises of the majority party. The only other method mentioned is the gross sales tax and it is questionable if this would suffice for our needs and strong oppostion to it would be certain. With the sales tax a companion meas- ure will again be introduced. This is the 42500 exemption on homes and farms which was introduced in the last ses- eion. If this is granted it will, it is believed, lessen the oppostion to the sales tax. Too, there is sure to be a new old age pension law enacted by the Na- tional Congress and the states will be expected to make provision to meet a part of the cost of this measure. Then there will be new liquor control legislation, bills to license gambling, farm legislation both state and national. resettlement, relief organization laws and scores of others, many of which will be of more than passing interest. In conclusion we wish to state that it would seem to be expecting too much of our representatives to bear the whole cost of a series of meetings to cover the entire county and as this is the be- ginning of the social season many parties could be arranged and a small collection could be taken up to pay at least a part of their expenses but in order to do this a committee should be appointed to plan the places of meet- ing We believe that if the voters will join us wholeheartedly and in a non- partisian spirit we will have little cause DAYS A LONGER LIMIT On Round Trip Tickets The return limit on Northern Pacific round trip tickets of all classes, on sale daily, has been increased from 10 to 30 days.

That is an increase of almost 9 per cent. The total number of cus- tomers increased 2 per cent during the year, the aggregate reaching 25,341,203 at the end of 1935. The revenue obtained from the sale of electric energy in 1935 reach- ed a total of $1,923,500,000; which is a gain of about one-half of one per cent. A 9 per cent gain in volume of business that produces only a one- half per cent gain in revenue is evidence of the continuing trend in rate reductions.
