but fisher, arrived in this morning

lie shipped from this place for Seattle
0:1 the next south bound boat. The

E. announce that the price of ad
mission at the dance to he given by
them on New Year’s eve has been re
duced to one dollar for gentlemen.
Ladies will be admitted free. It had
originally been the intention ro serve
supper to the dancers, hut owing to
uuforseen circumstances this will he
impossible. However, there will be
good music and a good time for all
who attend.
Tonight is the night of the big
event at tiie skating rink, when the
natives, in grotesque costume, will
carry out the ideas usual to a mas
que carnival. The event will be well
worth the price of admission. Elab
orate preparations have been made by
the natives who aro to take part.
The Jap, formerly employed in the
howling alley, who was arrested on a
charge of having nssi ted the natives
in securing whiskey, was tried today
and found guilty. Ho was sentenced

those connected with the Jap restaur
ant on Main street, across the street

Two natives, brothers, Charles and
Rodger Bains, who were arrested on
a charge of having assisted in tiie
distribution of fire-water during the
potlatch of several days ago, are in
more serious trouble tl an that implied
in the complaint upon which they
were arrested. About the 12th of
November, tiie store house belonging
to J. R. Heckman & Co., located on
Pcnnock island, and in which the
company stores its explosives, was
hroken into and 28 cases of gasolene
and 4 cases of benzine were carried
away. The Bains brothers own a gas
olene boat, and were engaged in log
g n, and since the disappearance oi
the gasolene have been running tiie
boat frequently hut have purchased no
gasolene. Shortly after the arrest ot
Charles Bains on Lite charge uf violat
ing the liquor laws, lie complained
that he had recently been robbed oi
several cases of ga olene, taken from
his launch. Investigation proved he
had not purchased any gasolene from
the local merchants and he was liually
accused by the officers of having brok
en into .1. K. Heckman & Co.'s store
house. Whereupon he confessed. Part
of the gasolene, lie said had been
used. Tiie rest was cached on Pen
nock island, part in one cache, the
rest in it second cache. Accompanied
tiy the officers lie was taken to Hie
island and led the way to where ihe
first cache had been made. There was
no gasolene mere, but the native stat
ed that there had been a number of
trees cut down within sight of the
gasolene since it had been placed
ihere. Leading the officers to the
[Jace where the second lot was hid
den, twelve cases were found. There
were supposed to have been six cases
hidden in tiie first place. T lese we e
probably discovered hv the parties
who were cutting wood in tiie neigh
borhood and appropriated. The case
against the brothers will be call 'd
Thursday. It lias not as yet neen
determined what charge will be made
against the men, hut. thaie is little
doubt but what they will “get all that
is coming to them."
