C.P. Erickson of Genesee filed a petition in the district court of Moscow last Saturday asking for a writ of habeas corpus for Hazel Hallman, a 15-year-old girl. Erickson alleged that the girl had been taken from his home by Roy Evans and was unlawfully held at the Evans ranch in Nez Perce county. Erickson is stepfather of the girl. Judge Steele issued the writ.

In the meantime Mrs. Emma Evans, wife of Roy Evans, and aunt to the girl, had petitioned Probate Judge Morgareidge for letters of guardianship over the girl and her younger brother on the ground that their mother was dead and that they were too young to be left with Erickson. Judge Morgareidge granted the letters of guardianship with the provision that the children were to be under the jurisdiction of the court.

This, it was understood, would put an end to the habeas corpus proceedings in the district court.

A pretty wedding occurred at the home of Mr. and Mrs. W.H. Canfield at high noon on Thursday, June 1st, when their daughter, Cecile May [Canfield] became the bride of Benjamin H. Stewart. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Milo Fiske of the Union church of Potlatch, and was held in the parlor of the home. The room was beautifully decorated in green and white with pink carnations. The bride was dressed in light blue silk and was assisted by her sister, Mrs. George Chrystal. F.S. Smith, a brother-in-law of the groom acted as best man. The bride was one of Harvard's popular young ladies, being one of the leaders in social circles and an active worker in the Sunday school and in the Grange, of which she is a member. Mrs. Stewart spent her entire life in this community. Her parents were among the early pioneers of this locality and owners of the Harvard townsite. The groom is a popular young merchant of Harvard, and is a native son of Latah county, being a son of Mr. and Mrs. George Stewart, pioneer residents of Moscow, at which place Mr. Stewart grew to manhood. He came to Harvard four years ago, buying in the mercantile business with his brother-in-law, F.S. Smith, and since that time has made this his home. Mr. and Mrs. Stewart were the recipients of many beautiful and useful presents, among which were lovely pieces of silverware, cut glass and hand-painted china. The ceremony was witnessed by the families of the contracting parties, the only one not a relative being present was F.A. Leinhard. A beautiful wedding feast was spread, after which Mr. Leinhard took the happy couple to Palouse in his automobile, from which place they took the train for Spokane. After a brief tour they will make their home in Harvard. Their many friends join in wishing them a long and happy married life.
