Every man enjoys recreation and sport of some kind. There is
nothing more conducive of real manhood than shooting. You
know that any man who is a marksman or hunter derives more
pleasure from this than from anything else. <JjWe don't have
the game to hunt that our forefathers did but what we lose in
this respect is more than made up by superior equipment.
•I We want every sportsman and every man who appreciates
good fire arms to see our stock of shot guns and rifles. <J We
enjoy showing them just as much as you do seeing them.

New Building Dedicated.
The formal dedication of the
new buildings of the Sacred Heart
Convent at the Mission was held
Sunday afternoon, the Rev.
Father Fletcher S. J. in charge.
The new buildings are well
worth visiting. The chapel is
a beautiful room placed east
arid west on the north side of the
main building, and office and
guest rooms occupy the balance
of the ground floor. On the sec
ond floor are sisters' rooms, and
on the third floor are the school
rooms. The central building,
two stories, has the dining room,
kitchen, recreation room, music
rooms, and study room, on the
ground floor, and sleeping apart
ments on the second floor. There
are accommodations for nearly
The west building is the Indian
mission for girls.
An up-to-date steam heating
plant occupies the basement of
the west wing and heats all de
partments of the convent.
A number of friends from Col
ville and other places were pres
ent. A most pleasing feature of
the day was the presence of
six visiting sisters: Sister Mary
Aurelia, who founded the mission
39 years ago and left here 31
years ago; Sister Francis Regis,
who was here 20 years ago, and
who set out the rows of trees
east of the buildings; Sister Mag
deline, of the Sacred Heart hos
pital, Spokane; the Mother Pro
vincial, directress of all the
schools, of Vancouver, Wash;
Sister Mary Alice, superior at
Sprague; Sister Gaudentia, su
perior at Colfax.
Has a Bonanza.
About three years ago Carl
Peterson in a party of six Alaskan
miners came to Colville, with a
view of taking homesteads in
After looking over the county
the party settled on the west
slope of Black Tail mountain.
Since that time these men have
been improving their homesteads
by clearing land, building cabins,
barns and fencing.
During this time, however,
the party divided their time, half
staying at home improving their
homesteads while the rest went
out mining in order to earn money
for grub-stakes. This winter it
fell to Peterson and others to
work on the homesteads while
two of the boys were sent to the
mines in British Columbia to
earn money for provisions and
Last Friday Mrs. M. Woodford
arrived in Colville in search of
Carl Peterson, a former miner
and prospector who was the own
er of a mining property near
Dawson. On learning of the
whereabouts of Peterson, Mrs.
Woodford who is a well known
mining promoter in Alaska, se
cured a team and was driven to

of 20 miles after dark through a

am! her driver arrived at the
homesteader's cabin about mid
night and Peterson was told by
M.s. Woodford that his property
bad turned out to be a bonanza,
t) at she had been searching for
him for months, and that she
v.ntedtohave the first option
o:. all or any part of the property.
Ti'*s mine owner and the promot
er left for Tacoma on the after
noon train where Mrs. Woodford's
s. i.dicate has a branch office.
When Mrs. Woodford was ask
ei by a representative of the
Examiner how she stood the
log hard trip to Black Tail
i iintain, she said it was only
a pleasure trip compared with
s rue of the trips she had taken
in Alaska. In speaking of Mr.
11 terson's mining property, she
s. id that she would not attempt
to place a value on the property
but that it was one of the richest
propositions discovered in the
Klondike district for many years.
How They Save
In a recent issue of the Index
it was made to appear that the
present board of county commis
sioners had really been the savior
of the county to the extent that
they not only save the taxpayers
money but had built bridges and
kept them in repair while doing
so. An investigation of the re
cords shows that during the
years 1907-8 the board was demo
cratic, and for the years 1909-10
the majority of the board was
republican, S. S. Beggs, being
the only democratic member.
During the four years above
mentioned there was in round
figures paid out for bridges, se
curing right of way for roads,
paying benefits to drainage and
diking districts, in this and what
is now Pend Oreille county, about
$75,000, while during the two
years the present republican
board has been in charge there
has not been one bridge built,
no benefits to drainage or diking
districts, and scarcely any right
of way secured for roads. Is it
any wonder the Index takes ad
vantage of the situation to talk
economy. All they had to do was
sit down and wait for the funds
to overtake the indebtedness—
any school boy could do this.
During the preceding 4 years
there were 66 bridges built, re
paired, or renewed. Many of
How the Ring
That the courthouse ring perpetuates
itself from its own members is evidenc
ed from the following signed letter to
the editor of the Examiner:
"J. C. Harrigan, editor of the Col
ville Examiner: Dear Sir—Having had
a conversation with the republican
nominee for county clerk, I want to
say that if he was running for dog
catcher I could not support him be
cause he told me that in appointing a
deputy he had to do as the com
mittee told him to because they would
furnish most of the campaign funds.
(Signed ) Colville, Wash.,
This is simply another added proof
that the RING handles all matters of
courthouse policy, and that the office
holders themselves are simply mere
puppets of the ring and take their or
ders from the ring.

work was necessary, the people
wanted them, and the work was
