W. L. Sloan of Locke was in town Wednesday. The Stevens County Abstract Co. has just finish ed the abstract work covering several thousand acres near Chewelah. This is one of the largest abstract contracts ever let in the country and will total about 90 separate abstracts. Another order for 40 abstracts on timber lands came in yesterday. The Colville school election will be held at the brick school building today from 1 to 8 p. m. to elect a successor to Dr. A. B. Cook. Judges will be Messrs. Herdricks, Moor and Vindhurst. Dr. Cook is the only nominee in the field, his name having been placed on the ticket by petition. His election to succeed himself will probably be only a matter of form, as his services have given the greatest of satisfaction to the school patrons of this district. School Clerk W. L. Sax has general charge of the election. The same rules govern school elections as in the general elections, with the exception that women possessing the prescribed qualifications may ...

Thirty-five saloons in Nez Perce and Idaho coun ties in the panhandle of Idaho, southeast of Spokane, were put out of business through a decision hand ed down a few days ago by the federal court of the United States, affirming the judgment of the fed eral court of Idaho in the case against George Dick, an Indian, convicted on the charge of selling li quor on the Nez Perce reservation and sentenced to serve a term in the penitentiary. The decision is sweeping and may be interpreted to mean that saloons on other reservations in the northwest are to be put under the ban. In a treaty made with the Indians in 1865, the United States guaranteed that liquor should never be introduced on the reservation. Several town sites have since passed from Indian ownership, the government first purchasing the land from the Indians and then transferring it to white settlers. While these townsites are within the geographical limitations of the reservation it was argued that even though they were surroun...

eration of the drastic laws passed by the republican party, drawing no interest notwithstanding the government had its interest obligations outstand ing drawing interest at the rate of 2, 3 and 4 per cent, amounting to over eight hundred and fifty eight million dollars on November 1, 1907. Now for all of this vast sum of money taken from the people and locked up by a republican administra tion there has not been returned to the people a single dollar of lawful money for them to use in making the exchanges and paying their debts. The banks are accused of hoarding and the people scolded by the newspapers for being frightened and drawing their money out of the banks and hoarding it. Now who is the boss hoarder? In view of such a monetary system, and such a job lot of politicians handling and operating it, is it any wonder that the country is in the throes of a finan cial panic? If the government insists on doing the currency banking business of the country, and making the national trea...

Wesley L. Jones seems to have troubles of his own in his ambition to replace Senator Ankeny in the national financial aquarium. C. 0. Young, gen eral organizer of the American Federation of La bor, gives out an open letter to Congressman Wes ley Jones in reply to a letter Mr. Jones made public January 25, in which the congressman told of his friendship for labor and labor legislation and con tended that his voting in the house is consistent with his attitude toward labor. Mr. Young points to a multitude of cases wherein Mr. Jones has been unfriendly to the labor unions and takes up his record in congress, and his votes on different questions, to prove the charges. Among the words of warning which have been sent all over the state by the Washington Federa tion of Labor may be seen the following choice advice to Mr. Jones: "You opposed the districting of the state of Washington in three congressional districts as called for by the constitution. You and your colleagues prevented its pa...

The Colville High School has recently been equipped with a complete laboratory and a well selected library of reference work. The school board, after a trial of two years, has concluded that a dry air heating plant, which is equipped with two furnaces, is unsafe, and during the summer will install a single furnace with a low pressure vapor heating system. The proposed new system, it is claimed, can be operated with half the fuel now consumed and will be perfectly safe from all danger of fire. The Collinwood disaster at Cleveland, Ohio, decided the board to make this change, and the proposition meets with the general approval of the citizens. The various church organizations of the city on Tuesday appointed representatives to form a com mittee to inaugurate a movement to establish a free reading room. The committee met Tuesday night in the M. E. church, and organized by the election of John B. Slater as chairman, and R. F. Van Valin secretary. The city authorities and the commercial ...
