COOS BAY TIMES
Along with the cities on Coos Bay
the towns of Myrtle Point, CoqulUe
and Bandon have taken favorable ac
tion toward tho proposed electric
lino between Roseburg and Coos
Bay. Committees have been ap
appolnted for the purpose of meeting
in conjunction with similar bodies
from tho other towns Interested.
People will follow with interest
this third attempt toward tho con
necting of tho most fertile part of
Oregon with Coos Bay. There is no
question regarding the value of the
line to tho portion of the country
through which It will act as a means
of transportation toward Oregon's
Tho two first attempts did not ma
terialize because the country had not
reached the present state of develop
ment. Between one and two million
dollars Is given as nn approximate
estimate of tho cost of construction.
It is for the purpose of formulating
plans for tho raising of tho required
funds that the committees are or
ganized. SPRING ARRIVES.
Springtime has arrived on Coos
Bay and tho tributary streams, and
luxuriant nature spots hold out irre
sfstable Invitations. Pen pictures of
spring's debut fall lumentably short.
It Is a grand ensemble of vivid, vol-
j uptuoua color tjiat the most clastic
Imagination Is inadequate to grasp.
i The fascination of fishing seems
to have taken hold of many. Even
, our strenuous president would find
, pleasure in the angling sport around
Coos Bay. From the unlimited store
of halibut, royal salmon, sllversldes
' and steelheads, there are but few
periods of rest for the angler's hook.
Every citizen of Marshfleld owes
it to himself to rally to Mayor
Straw's support on Friday, May 10,
for a general cleaning up day of the
I city. That action In the matter is
' needed badly thero is no question.
I The ideal weather which is now be
ing experienced renders tho time
most opportune. Governor Cham
berlain is to visit the bay next week,
and of course Marshfleld will wish to
present a spick and span appear
The city will sta.ic the expense of
carting away the rubbish which is
collected. The citizens are asked to
deposit it In the middle of the street
to enable the' wagons to gather It
If every individual will exert his
or her most willing efforts, the city
will be gone over by a united band
of co-workers on Friday that will
place Marshfleld side by side with
AVIIjIj ELECT PRESIDENT.
