MIKE HOUSE MINK DOOMS
Dean L. O. Howard this week re
ceived a telegram from F. W. Rader,
president of the Sterling Mining &
Mailing company, wnich is operating
the Mike Horse mine near Flesher,
Mont., stating that three full shifts
will be in operation by April 1. This
will mean from 90 to 100 tons of
crude ore to be sent to the company
mill each day, and 10 tons of con
centrate ready for shipment, of a
value of $9000 per month, with 60
men employed. The second car of
ore shipped from the anine netted
52419.22, or considerably more than
the first car, which was reported two
weeks ago. It was a 29-ton car.
Several Pullman men are interested
in the property.
TWO ARE INJURED
WHEN CARS COLLIDE
Earl Prophet anal Alex Adams laa
juaetl in Automobile Accident
Sunday Evening May Claim
Earl Phophet and Alex Adams,
owners of the Acme Barber shop,
were severely injured Sunday even
ing when Mr. Prophet's Chevrolet
automobile and an Oakland Six op
erated as a stage between Colfax
and Lewiston collided just this side
of Colfax. Messrs. Prophet and
Adams were returning from Spokane
and the stage machine was headed
for Colfax. The force of the impact
threw Mr. Adams against the wind
shield, resulting in numerous deep
cuts about the face and body, and
severe bruises. One cheek was laid
open to the bone, the cut extending
to the mouth, and several stitches
were required to close the wound.
Mr. Prophet suffered severe bruises
on his right leg and chest and sev
eral deep cuts. The injured anen
were both brought to Pullman by
a passing machine for medical at
tention and both were almost ex
hausted from loss of blood when
they arrived here. None of the five
or six occupants of the Oakland
were injui- cd. Both automobiles
were badly wrecked.
Both of the drivers lay the blame
for the accident on the other and a
law suit may be necessary to settle
the controversy. Mr. Prophet al
leges that the Oakland was running
with but one light and traveling it
|a high rate of speed. When he saw
It round the curve he thought it to
be a motorcycle and claims that he
gave it all the road possible, driving
his own machine to within a couple
of feet of the fence. He claims that
the Oakland was traveling so fast
that it was forced to the extreme
left hand side of the road in making
the curve and that the driver could
not regain the right hand side of
the road in time to avert the colli
sion. A group of Pullman men
drove to the scene of the accident
soon after it occurred and took
measurements of the wheel tracks
which, it is claimed, substantiate
the statements of Mr. Prophet. The
j driver of the Oakland is alleged to
have refused to give his name when
questioned by Mr. Prophet.
The Oakland driver alleges that
Prophet was the speed law violator
and that he was blinded by the glar
ing lights on the Chevrolet. One of
the lights was smashed in the mix
up but persons who have seen the
other since the accident claim that
it complies with the state law in
j The force of the collision turned
the Chevrolet almost completely
around, while the Oakland went on
past and into the ditch.
Both of the Pullman men are re
covering satisfactorily from their in
