"The Hardware Store!" The Colville Examiner, Saturday, July 3, 1915 COURTHOUSE AND COUNTY NEWS Last Saturday Judge \V. H. Jackson affirmed the acceptance by Charles Adams, receiver for the Copper King mine at Chewe lah, of the $125,01)0 l>id submitted by J. W. Douglas as against that of Danson, Williams & Danson of $75,000. The terms of the latter bid had been modified and the amount Iraised to $128,000, but it was rejected as being out of time and showing a lack of good faith. Danson, Williams & Dan son, by Mr. Williams, gave no tice in open court of appeal to the supreme court from the order approving the Douglas bid. It developed on the hearing on ob jections to the Douglas bid that Danson, Williams & Danson, at torneys of Spokane, represented the J. Urier Long estate, 11. 11. llebert, Air. Me Lain and others claiming to be stockholders. Mr. Douglas represents an association of Spokane capitalists, including Volney D. Williams. Mr. Doug las' bid involved payments ex tending over three- years, the first payment, $5,000, to be made in three months, and the others of different amounts at different in tervals. Last Saturday he sub mitted a second bid, providing for a payment of $1,000 in 10 days, $1,500 in 30 days, and the remainder over a three year per iod, agreeing to begin operations at the mine soon. The terms of the second bid of Danson, Wil liams & Danson of $128,000 called for the first payment, $5,000, to be paid when the tender was ac cepted, $5,000 for each succeeding 90 days for a year, and the re mainder to be paid in two years from the date of acceptance. The Copper King became insolvent last fall and ceased operations. The insolvency was not due to lack of rich ore but from inability to ship. Walter P. Wooster ol Chowu lah has commenced legal proceed ings against Andrew Leu, living in Wisconsin, to cancel a contract which was executed Nov. 1, 1913, whereby the defendant agreed to purchase a ranch from defendant, but failed to meet the balance of $1,500 due on the land. Plaintiff and wife have taken possession of the ranch and have erected a $1,000 residence, also a $200 cel lar. Last Saturday Judge Sessions of Davenport denied the motior. for a new trial in the case of Eden dale Land Company vs. James .1. Morgan, which was sought by the plaintiff. The action was brought some time ago to enjoin Morgan from using the waters of Stranger creek and for $10,000 damages, but at the trial the defendant se cured judgment. Rochford & "Wil son are attorneys for Morgan. Last Saturday in the superior court Fred Bennett pleaded guilty to the' charge ot' second degree burglary and was sentenced by Judge W. 11. Jackson to from two to ten years in the state peniten tiary. Indications point quite favorab ly to the rebuilding of the North port smelting plant that has been idle for a Dumber of years. The contracts between the mine owners of the Coeur d'Alenes and (he Federal refining interests will ex pire in a few days, and the mine owners, during their long season of prosperity under favorable ar rangements for the treatment of their ores have grown strong enough to care for their own in terests independently. They also have extended their holdings to rich producers in Hritish Colum bia. The Northport smelter, Moat Children Have Worma.
