Prof. Qubey, the acrobat, appeared at the Col
ville roller rink last week and won much applause
by his exhibition of skill on the rings and bars,
and roller skating on a wire.
S. H. Anschell of Metaline spent last week in
Colville in furtherance of the plan of the Colville
and Metaline Transportation Company to start op
erations soon. Mr. Anschell left a statement with
City Attorneys Jesseph & Grinstead that at the
meeting of the company April 2 he would use all
possible influence to have the directory and home
office located at Colville. He also made a proposi
tion that if $1800 were raised in Colville, he would
place $1900 in the Colville banks for the company's
use, and if the proposed line proved not feasible,
all interest in the $1900 of the Seattle promoters
should revert to Colville stockholders. At the re
cent Jordan trial the county paid 12 or 14 jurors
and witnesses for 386 miles each. Over the pro
posed line 80 miles would have covered expenses
to the county. Colville business men are of one
mind as to the possible benefits to this town should
this line be opened, but some questions as to the
feasibility of it have been raised. January 15 will
not see the opening, as was expected by the com
pany, but there is hope that the summer months
will see the line in operation.
