Business Men 's League held last eve
ning at the Commercial club, it was
unanimously voted that stores should
keep open during the holidays their
usual hours. It was thought that since

late hours for Christmas shoppers. Mrs.

port in regard to credit ratings and
the general interest she had found
among business men in the affairs of
the league. There was also a lively dis
cussion as to the future of business in
the city and it was. the concensus of
opinion that the opportunities were
great for the capital city and that the

Abram Volchok, proprietor of a Junk
shop on Court street,, was arrested yes
terday afternoon charged with selling
a 14 voar old boy a 38calibre revolver
and with not making a proper report
to tho police authorities as required
by city ordinances. Don Worden was
the purchaser and nothing perhaps
would have been known of tho trans
action had not the boy's father made
the complaint. The gun was sold to tho
boy-Kin Thanksgiving day out in front
of Volchok 's place of business. It is
regarded as an especially dangerous
weapon as the barrel is but two inches
long and is made in such a way that
if loaded and not cocked, the hammer
rests against tho cartridge. Volchok
appeared before Judge Webster thiB
morning, pleaded guilty and was fined !
