The Colville & Metaline Route The statement made in this paper last week re garding the beginning of operations Jan. 15 of the Colville & Metaline Transportation Company was the only mention made of the fact by any paper in the county last week. Whether the Examiner is the only paper interested in seeing the opening of transportation between Colville and Metaline, or whether it is the only paper in Colville which at tempts to give at least a part of the news, we do not attempt to say. Be it as it may, S. H. Ans chell of Metaline appeared before the council this week and stated that operations would commence Jan. 15. A 40-horsepower Reo double cylinder automobile will make one trip a day each way, with carrying capacity of 12 persons and trailer for freight.

Open Evenings Astonishingly low prices make C£MS£ your Christinas buying easy at H^^^Jmh^ Barman's P9B You'd be surprised to know how many people are already making their Christmas purchases at Barman's, and it's a wise thing to do—for two reasons: First, you avoid the rush and worry of doing everything at the last moment. Second, our lines are complete. The great purchas ing power of Barman's has demonstated its strength as never before in the immense stock of holiday goods. It is a well-known fact that Barman's have always offered their stock to the public at the most reasonable figures possible without trying to make people believe that they are offering goods at 25 and 40 per cent less than regular prices—which is merely a bait used by others to catch the trade. This is unnecessary for this old established firm (in business in Colville since 1887) to do to dispose of its goods. Buying direct from manufacturers and im porters enables us to sell our wares at prices that enable the...

Strike at Morning Mine A strike of high-grade galena ore was made at the Morning mine, Metal ine district, this week. The tunnel in this property is in nearly 300 feet. The upper workings consist of a tunnel near the outcrop and several open cuts. Be low this and at one side a joint tunnel was run in company with the Mammoth Mining Company which struck the ore body where each company had done considerable drifting on the ledge. The present lower tunnel is being driven to test the extent of ore. It is intended to work the mine by quarrying method, and a beginning has already been made. The surface showings extend for a dis tance of 400 feet along the hillside and have been tapped by a number of open cuts. In the upper workings the width of the vein is about 40 feet. Along the hanging wall there is a lead of high grade galena running from 10 inches to five feet in width, and next to this there is about 15 feet of concentrating ore, that concentrates two into one.

THE COLVILLE EXAMINER Issued Every Saturday by the Stevens County Publishing Company, Inc. Subscription Price $1.50 a Year; 5c a Copy Entered at the Colville postoffice as second-class mail matter J. C. Harrigan, Editor and Manager Encouraging reports come from the national capitol. Statement is made that congress will probably take some action on the currency ques tion at its next session. As the next session will convene in less than a year, the outlook is indeed favorable for the people—provided there is any money left in circulation by that time. No par ticular reasons are given why congress can or will not handle the matter properly at this present ses sion. The inference is that congress is too busy with more important matters. This is evidenced by the work so far accomplished. The first appro priation was for a $50,000 seed deficiency. A suffering country may not have been aware that there was any deficiency at all in the seed market, although at times it may have appeared to...

country in the grip of corporation power another four years. There are also some republicans and many socialists who are of the same mind but with different methods for a proposed change. If. the matter is worthy of attention at all, it should de mand a united effort by all who are interested in the welfare of this nation, and the speediest method of accomplishing a reform should be used, regardless of all party spirit. The organization of democracy stands today as the most feasible agent for the speedy accomplishment of national reform. It welcomes all fair-minded citizens to its ranks for this momentous occasion and hopes in time to give to all the people a civic government under which-shall rule the eternal principle of "equal rights to all." Congressman W. L. Jones has introduced a bill into congress providing for the disposal of the in terests of Indian minors in real estate. It provides that the interests of any Indian minor in any lands, whether by direct allotment or by inhe...
