«Another phase of the Sunday clos

lie last week when, on Saturday,
beriff W. G. Brown issued orders

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

istablishment of these cigar stores,

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
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.
Elaborate arrangements are being
fmade by the young ladies of the Ep
fworth League for a leap year social
at the Methodist parsonage, Thurs
day evening. They announce that all
gentlemen coming without an escort
|will be furnished with one for the re
turn trip. Some leaps will take place,
and after the wedding, supper will be
Next Friday evening is the date set
for the dance to be given by the
Riggs orchestra. This is the first of a
series of dances to be given during the
winter month; and each affair of the
series will undoubtedly prove to be
very popular. The music to be
provided by this organization will be
a lot above the average and those who
attend are assured of an evening of
genuine pleasure and enjoyment. A
large crowd is expected to be present.
Miss Margaret Sweet entertained a
number of friends at her home last
Saturday evening. A very enjoyable
evening is reported.

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.

of Grangeville that he take action in

on the part of the county officers to
see that the Sunday closing law is not
openly and brazenly violated.
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.

Will be Mamed Sunday.
A marriage license was issued this
morning to James R. Murrey and
Miss Allie M. Cook. The wedding
will take place next Sunday at the
home of the bride's sister, Mrs. J.
B. Sloan, near Grangeville, and the
happy couple will be at home in this
city after Feburary 1, 1908. The
groom is the efficient lineman super
intending the lines of the Pacific Tel
ephone company here, and the bride
is the estimable daughter of the late ;
Jos. B. Cook. Both are highly re
spected young folks and have many
friends, whom The Globe joins in j
wishing them a matrimonial journey j
replete with happiness and prosperity. |

John Stantial and Nick McGhee
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.''
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. ^

The members of the Idaho Coufity

a grand ball to be held at the I. O.
O. F. hall in White Bird on the
evening of Çriday January 24th. j
The association plans to make this
event the biggest affair of the kind
ever held along the Salmon river
valley and if they succeed in their
hopes an evening of exceptional in
terest and entertainment will have
been enjoyed. There's been dime.
pretty jolly dances held at White j
Bird in the past and as everything j
looks as if the Idaho County Stock
Association ball is to be the biggest
and best ever, a good time is assured. |
The best of music is to be provided
and each and every detail pertaining
to the complete enjoyment of the af
fair will be looked after. Supper
will be be served at the Newmin
