Mass Meetings
Consider Problems
A mass meeting of the church
membership of Colville was held at
the M. E. church last Sunday after
noon. Rev. C. t. Whitten of the
M. E. church acted as chairman.
The enforcement of the 18th amend
ment was discussed, together with
the measures now before congress
seeking its interpretation and en
forcement. Talks were made by
representatives of various churches,
Prof. E. C. Durdle speaking for the
Congregational, Dan Droz for the
Christian, Atty. F. Leo Grinstead
for the Methodist Episcopal and G.
S. Pond for the Free Methodist
church. Rev. Guy B. Denney of the
Free Methodist church pronounced
the invocation and benediction.
By a unanimous vote of the
audience, the following teiegram
was sent to the state's representa
tives in congress:
"The people of the L'nited States
by a decided majority have made
the manufacture and sale of intoxi
cating liquor a crime. We oppose
the weakening of the 18th amend
ment in any way. We are in favor
of the Willis-Campbell bill prohibit
ing the manufacture of light wines
and beer and we are heartily in fa
vor of the strict enforcement of the
Volstead Act and any other act or
measure that will put an end to the
liquor traffic."
This telegram was signed by rep
resentatives of five Colville
Favor Board of Charities
A correlation of all public charity
in Colville was favored by the meet
ing. Presentation of present con
ditions was made by different
speakers, showing that there is no
uniformity and no source of infor
mation in Colville respecting public
charity. Statements were made
that under the present lack of sys
tem, the professional and undeserv
ing mendicants were able to get
money, while deserving cases were
overlooked. It is suggested that a-.
Colville fcoard of Charities be fornr~
Ed in the city, with a representative
from each of the churches, one from
the chamber of commerce, one from
the Red Cross, and one from each
of the other organizations which
have been doing work along, this
By a vote of the meeting, it was
decided to hold a mass meeting of
all citizens on some Sunday eve
ning, for the purpose of forming
such a board. A committee was
named to make arrangements for
such a meeting, the committee
members being F. Leo Grinstead,
B. C. Durdle, J. C. Harrigan.
The committee has arranged for
the mass meeting to be held at th"
M. E. church Sunday eight, Oct. !».

That the lumber business in and
around Colville in on the road to
its former prosperity may be taken
from the statement recently mad' 1
by Bernard B. Barber of Barber
and company, dealers in wholesale
and retail lumber.
"Since the organization of the
company, business has been un
usually good," said Mr. Barber,
"much better than I had anticipated.
Unless something unforeseen hap

siderable experience in the lumber
business, came to Colville direct

Approximately 6(10 children, a j
hand of cowboys. 35 Indians in full !
tribal costumes from the different |
n ervatlona, and 37 decorated autos i
took part in the opening parade of
the Stevens County Livestock and
Fail- association's eighth annual
show. The parade, which was held
on Main street from Beach avenue
to Second avenue, was a half mile
in length.
Leading the parade was thi* Col
\illc bund headed by Prof, M. W.
Meyer. Following close behind the
band came Princess Amatap, Miss
Dorothy OifTenbacher of this city,
and her five attendants, Miss
Louise Btown of Chewelah, Miss
Lyda Erwin of Valley, Miss FVarl
Lair of Marcus, Miss Zita Howe of
Northport, and Miss Ruth Brown of
Kettle Falls. The princess and her
atti'iulants were gowned in full
Indian dress.
Following the princess and her at
tendants came the Indians, dressed
in their tribal costumes. Experts
on Indian costumes placed the value
on the different costumes all the
way from $75 to $860. As to the
Indians in the parade, it was easily
the best representation of, Indians
in quality, quantity and dress that
any parade yet staged in Colville
has had. Twenty-six of the Indians
in the parade belong to the Coeur
d'Alene reservation. The remain
der was divided between the Cali
spel, Colville and Spokane tribes.
Close upon the Indians came the
cowboys followed by thirteen
ex-iervice men carrying the Ameri
can flat? and the emblem of Iho
local legion post. Then came the
decorated autoi representing the
different business firms of Colville,
and the new fire truck. The school
children, in platoons led by their
teachers, made a showing which
can not be equaled by any city the

Two thousand dollars is the value
placed on the costumes worn by
Princess Amatap, her five attend
ands and her chaperons in the open
ing parade. The costumes, the
property of the Coeur d'Alene, Cal
ispel and Spokane Indians, wen
rented by the general committee of
the fair for the princess, her at
tendants and her chaperons.
Princess Amatat's costume was of
pure buckskin as was that worn by
her attendant from Xorthport, Miss

Successful Clinic
Held in Colville
Stevens county's first tuberculosis
clinic was held in Colville Wednes
day afternoon and Thursday morn
ing, in charge of Dr. Frederick Sly
field of Seattle, senior physician in
charge of the Pulmonary Hospital of
Seattle, and representing the Wash
ington Tuberculosis association. He
was assisted by the physicians of
this county, and the county nurse
Miss w. 0. Olokner.
Twenty-seven suspects were ex
amined, and the finding ranged all
the way from serious cases of tu
berculosis in advanced stages to bad
teeth, curvature of the spine, bad
tonsils, bad heart, and undernourish-
ment. The findings of fact were
stated to tin patients, and in all
cases the reports and suggestions
for treatment were referred direct
lo the lamilj physician, the exam
ining doctor prescribing nothing
direct to the patient.
"The clinic is the best means of
getting results," said Dr. Slyfield,
"because it brings the people to a
realization that prevention and ear
ly attention are worth health and
money to the community. It is
planned to held a clinic here every
three months. Clinics are only held
in the counties which have county
nurses, and her aid is indispensable.
Several people are saved for every
case founrl, as records show that
every person who dies of tuberculo
sis has Infected four other people.
Loss of weight and incipient casos
of tuberculosis are often discovered
in the clinic, where otherwise they
would not be discovered until the
patient has an advanced iitage of
the disease. A school child with tu
berculosis can easily infect a dozen
children, as Ihe sputum frequently
is the real carrier of the disease.
The danger of undiscovered cases in
the schools ia very grave, and a
county without a county nurse who
makes frequent examinations of
pupils is taking chances which may
be avoided. Strict watch should
he kept of people who work in pub
lic places, public offices, and places
where foods are sold or handled."
When asked regarding the. work
of other counties, Dr. Slyfield said:

Rifle Squad is
Getting: Stronger
Colville's rifle squad has increas
ed to 18 riflemen fully instructed
in their duties, the various alarms
which call them, where they shall
station themselves, and what to do
under various circumstances. Chief
of Police Frank Perras states that
he has some of the best rifle shots
in the county enlisted in the Col
ville rifle squad for the protection
of Colville life and property. He
has been besieged by applicants for
admission to the squad, and has
been obliged to turn down some
very good men for the reason that
they might not bo able to give quick
response in the locality needed.
Should any emergency arise under
which the squad is called into ac
tion, the chief urges that house
holders who have only revolver!
.should stay at home and look after
their immediate neighborhood, as
extra revolvers will not be of any
assistance to the rifle squad, and
extra people unarmed on the street
will not tend to assist in the plans
which have been formulated.
