It is hardly necessary to men- tion that Pincher City has had stronK rival town, and some of its citizens have not always used fair means in an endeavor to get, a strangle hold on Pincher Ciiy with a view of putting it out of business. Pincher City's first hotel had a short but eventful life. he parties who had a year lease on the building were in business hut. a short time, when a bus- iness man of our rival town who at that, time had more rmmey than business foresight, and had his financial strength very much .overestimated purchased the hotel building on the instalment. plan, making a substantial cash payment on the deal, .n .1 short time afterwards the licen- se cancelled. Tins master stroke was intended for a knock out blow to Pincher City, but the blow fell short and the ag- gressor lost the stakes (or the instalment) and this was the cause of Uie Uuiidiiig the magni- ficent hotel which is giving the public satisfactory service at Pincher City at the present time. The license for the horel was strongly opposed by the same party and he actually had the audacity to question the de- cision of the License Commis- sioners had recommended the granting of the Hotel Licen- se and unwisely resorted to the supreme court for a decision in the matter, where thank-s TO Canadian justice, he was again defeated and assessed the costs of his interference with the pro- gress of Pincher City. !n organizing and establishing: the boundary lines of the Pin- cher City School District we again met fierce opposition, but after the matter -was Investigat- ed by the proper authorities the decision was in favor of the con- tention of Pincher City and as a res.uli. we have a fine school building where the youths of Pincher City are ed- ucated. Pincher City has processed wonderfully considering the many obstacles with which it had to contend and brush aside and some of the obstacles it re- quired considerable ume to, brush them aside, as they would not yield to the brush.very read- ily, bur, Pincher City is at the top of the grade, and is es- tablished on a solid basis and can now use its time, money and energy in developing into a real city, instead of as heretofore of having to use same fighting and brushing aside obstructions which retarded its development For the benefit of those who might think, or might have been told that Pincher City as yet is of very little if any importance we will state that it !s located In the business and railway cen- tre" of the immense Pincher District. Every thing shipped in to this Immense utsi.nct must come! to Pincher City also every thing shipped out of this immen- se district must, be shipped from Pincher City, people coming in. and .going out of the district must come and go by way of Pincher City.
