PETER DUEBER. – The life of Mr. Dueber exemplifies the rewards which our coast and society hold out to the old-fashioned qualities of industry and economy. He was born in Newport, Kentucky, in 1857. At the age of ten years he removed with his parents from Minnesota and crossed the plains with ox-teams to Oregon, arriving in Portland safely the following autumn. He first attended school, and at the age of fourteen qualified himself for a sure livelihood by learning the trade of harness-making. He followed this actively in Portland and San Francisco until 1870, when he found a new location at Spokane Falls, which was then but in its earliest infancy. He established and conducted a harness and saddle store, which was the first of its kind in Spokane. He continued in that business for nine years, when his avails were so considerable as to enable him to deal successfully in real estate and in mining stocks. He has ever been highly respected by his fellow citizens, and has held the office of councilman for five years. He is recognized as one of the leading men of his city, and is foremost in every enterprise to insure its enlargement. He is a democrat in politics, and has filled the office of chairman of the Democratic county committee. He was married in San Bernardino, California, in 1876, to Miss Mary Brown, a native of that state. They have two sons.
