CHARLES A. FIEDLER.

Charles A. Fiedler, to whom belongs the distinction of having erected the second house in Newport, has extensive realty interests in the town and its immediate vicinity. He was born in Butler county, Pennsylvania, on the 20th" of April, 1872, his parents being George and Ellen (Hoon) Fiedler, both of whom are now deceased, the mother having passed away in 1896, and the father in 1910.

When Charles A. Fiedler was a little lad his parents removed to Ohio, where he was reared and educated. He completed his preliminary education upon his graduation from the Hubbard high school in 1891. This was later supplemented by two years study in the Case School of Applied Sciences at Cleveland, Ohio. He then laid aside his text-books and sought employment, entering upon his first position with the Standard Oil Company at Oil City, Pennsylvania, where he remained for five years. At the expiration of that period he came west, locating at Newport, where he continued to look after their interests for a time. As prospecting appeared to him to offer better opportunities he withdrew from the employ of the Standard Oil Company and began locating and developing mining properties in the Metaline country. In December, 1899, he opened a saloon in Newport, that he successfully conducted for ten years. During that time he made judicious property investments here and began building and selling houses. He also erected the Antler Hotel, which he conducted until 1910, when he disposed of it. He still owns considerable property here, having a number of residences that he rents, and in 1911 he erected a solid concrete, fireproof theater. It is the best equipped and most pretentious building of its kind in the state and affords a seating capacity of four hundred. The building has been so arranged that its capacity can be increased as the demand grows. In addition to his local interests Mr. Fiedler owns property in Spokane and has made extensive investments in the Coeur d'Alene district. He has also thirteen patented claims in a group of mines in the Parker Mountain district in Pend Oreille county. He is well known in mining circles throughout this part of the country, having been largely interested in promoting developments along this line.

Franklin, Pennsylvania, was the scene of the marriage of Mr. Fiedler on July 10, 1897, to Miss Jessie Karnes, a daughter of Henry and Margaret Karnes. On January 10, 1902, one child was born unto Mr. and Mrs. Fiedler, Charles A., Jr., who is now attending school.

Fraternally Mr. Fielder is a Mason, being a past master of the blue lodge; and he is also a member of the Knights of Pythias and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, having organized and installed the local lodge of the latter order. His political support he gives to the republican party, but is not an office seeker. Mr. Fiedler is very fond of traveling and a few years ago covered the greater part of the United States and Mexico with an automobile. He is one of the enterprising and progressive citizens of Newport, toward the development of which he has made valuable contributions through his indefatigable efforts to promote its various utilities.
