U. I. Hunnicutt of Tama, lowa, arrived in Col
ville Sunday and will make this his home. His
wife will join him here in a few weeks. Mr.
Hunnicutt comes to assume charge of the mechan
ical department of the Examiner. While young in
years he is old in the business. In 1887 he started
to learn the printing trade in Tama, lowa. In 1888
the editor of the Examiner began the same work
at Toledo, two miles away. Both have been at the
business ever since and at times have worked to
gether in the east. Mr. Hunnicutt possesses an en
viable reputation as a job printer, whereof the
editor knows by personal experience, and his work
will be seen by the people of Colville and Stevens
county as fast as the capability of the Examiner
plant will permit. The following we clip from the
Tama, lowa, News: "Mr. U. I. Hunnicutt left on
Sunday evening last for Colville, Washington,
where he goes to take a place on the Colville paper
established by J. C. Harrigan. Mr. Hunnicutt,
Lyss, as everybody knew him, has been on the
News force for many years and is one of the best
job printers in the country. He leaves for an op
portunity to better his position in the growing west
and goes with the best wishes of the News that he
may do so."
