The issuance of |e order followed a conference be Ireen Sheriff Brown and County At jirney Griffith regarding the establish lent of cigar stores by several saloon len of the city. Recently, since the ifferent features of the much dis missed Sunday closing law have been jferefully studied out, a few proprietors if saloons have made arrangements o conduct cigar stores in the same luildings in which the saloons are lo oted. It is supposed that card play ng was to be the chief attraction at hese places. The authorities wish it known that hey are not complaining of the istablishment of these cigar stores, fhey are complaining against the reation of places where men may ^tber on Sundays and obtain easy ac cess to the saloons if they should In the Social Realm A very happy crowd attended the )ld-fashioned social given by the Busy Bees of the Baptist church at the resi lence of Mr. and Mrs. L. C. Chad wick last Friday evening. A program of especial merit was given, which delicious refreshments lerved. The affair was a decided after were success. The fact that 1908 is leap year seems to have been a little slow in dawning upon the social lights of Grangeville, but now that it's appar ent, several events have been planned to properly observe the event the last of the week. The Epworth League social at the Methodist parsonage and the leap year party at the rink, both scheduled for tomorrow evening, and the dance at the I. O. O. F. hall Friday evening are some of the prin cipal social events of the week.

Next Friday evening is the date set for the dance to be given by the Riggs orchestra.

If the proposed cigar stores were to have been built | on that order, and with that object in choose to do so. these ! t L ative to the statement alleged to have been made by him concerning the closing of cigar stores he had nothing i to say except that the statement in the i Spokesman-Review, wherein it is alleged that his actions were the re view, then the authorities would have objected to the completion of these flimsy excuses for evading the law. Sheriff Brown has notified those who proposed building the cigar stores that when the stands contained doors by which easy access to the saloons could be maintained, that on Sunday a padlock was to be placed on doors and securely locked. When Mr. Griffith was asked rel suit of the urgent requests of ministers of Grangeville that he take action in I Charley Moore, who has been this matter is absolutely false, and that no minister of the gospel in Grange ville, nor church, nor any other in fluence, dictated his policy in this He says it is simply an effort matter. on the part of the county officers to see that the Sunday closing law is not openly and brazenly violated. CHARLEY MOORE INJURED. He Meet* With Serious Accident While Hauling Wood. hauling wood from the mountain south of town to the city all winter, was severely hurt last Wednesday as he was coming down the hill with a load of wood. Mr. Moore placed the ends of two large logs on a single bob, as is the custom with woodhaulers when sleighing is good, and was bringing the logs down to the bottom of the grade. Near the old Bledsoe cabin he attempted to reach a better ] roadbed a short distance up the side of the mountain. In guiding his horses up the grade the sled overturned and Mr. Moore was thrown violently down the hillside. He had been sitting in a position facing the hill and when the accident occurred he was unable to see just what to do. The large logs refused to roll and the sled did not turn completely over, or Mr. Moore would probably have been fatally crushed by the huge timbers. As it was he was hurled down the hill and his back seriously hurt by the He says that he landed in a small ditch and that his back struck a bit of raised, frozen ground. He was unable to rise and was compelled to lie in the snow -until parties came down the hill ^ few hours later. He was brought to his home in the north west part of the city where he is resting easily at present. He may not be able to take up the heavy work again for several days, however. fall. ... . . _ , Will be Mamed Sunday. A marriage license was issued this morning to James R. Murrey and Miss Allie M.

Stantial and McGree Brine Out Re P orU of Rich Find »he Del Ri«. . . John Stantial and Nick McGhee state. came out from the Hump the firstlof the week, arriving here Sunday night. They will remain a few days before returning to the camp. When asked concerning news of the Hump coun try, Mr. Stantial replied: "The best news of the camp is the rich strike made on the Del Rio property recent ly. A. F. Schultz, who is worki the property, struck about five feet of rattling good ore last week, and ihe property now looks much better than ever before. The ore was encountîr ed after a tunnel of 650 feet in length had been run and a 40-foot crosscut had been made. The Del Rio property joins the Jumbo on the south and is owned by A. F. Schultz s^nd Cottonwood parties. There is about four feet of snow in the Hump coun try at present.'' ng PROTEST AGAINST UTTER. Under date of January 13th, a d is patch from Boise says : D. A. Utter, who is said to be lately named as surveyor general for this state to succeed Ernest G. Eagle son, is a civil engineer who has long been located at Weiser. He is chair man of the Republican committee of Washington county. Last year he moved, as was understood, to Coos Bay, Oregon, and it was not generally known he was still a citizen of Idaho until his name came up for this pcsi tion. It appears a protest has been made against him on the ground that he has lost his citizenship here, and the senators are looking it up. Presi dent Roosevelt made it a condition that the new rhan should be an engineer and this materially cut down the Jist of available men. ^ Say That Man Who Want* Surveyor General'* Office I* Not a Citizen.
