Pend d’Oreille Review
Jan. 12, 1920 – CITY BREVITIES
Sheriff Freeman of Shoshone county was in the city yesterday looking up evidence in the cases of some IWWs who are to be tried in that county.
The Pend d’Oreille Motor company’s new garage in the former R & A building at (206) Cedar street has this week been opened to the public. The enterprise is that of Mrs. E.W. Dreisbach, with Harry Lyons as manager. The building is an ideal one for an auto salesroom, and as rearranged and equipped is attracting much favorable comment.
At 1 o’clock yesterday afternoon, at the residence of A.E. Stutsman, 1216 Lake street, occurred a double wedding in which James T. Elsasser and Otie E. Stutsman, both of this city, and Eugene A. Blair of Kootenai and Lora Olive Elsasser of this city were the principals. Rev. W.N. Byars of the Methodist church officiated in the ceremony, which was witnessed only by immediate friends and relatives. After a wedding feast, the newly wedded people left on the N.P. railroad for Spokane on a short wedding trip.
