VOLUME XXIX '
BANDON, OREGON, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1913
fjMr - ,
Friendly Suit Instituted to
Determine Legality of
County Attorney L. A. Liljcqvist
will within a sliott time commence a
friendly suit in court to annul the
Port of Coqnille River, with the hope
in view ol settling for aM lime the
validity ol the port.
Although it seems in the course of
events that this proceedure U nei'es
sary, yet it ceitiinly is not right
that it should he, as when the people
have spoken so plainly on a subject
as they did n the p irt commission
question, there should be no reason
lor having to put it through the
courts, as the people's will should
always be paramount.
The port commission carried by
a majority ol 2 to i in the entire
district and in disrricts most vitally
interested it c irried by 3 or 4 to 1.
Thus the people have spoken and
1 heir desires should be recognized,
but if under the law and existing
conditions it is necf-rsary to go
thiough the courts, then the quick
er it is done, the better for all con
cerned, so the port commissioners
can get busy and do the work they
are planning upon.
Oswald Gets First Sheet.
.S.-imnfes of the first sheet of null)
ever made from yellow fir and this
from mill waste, have been sent to
Governor West from C. A. Smith
ol the C. A. Smith Company, which
has built a pulp m!'' in connection
with the company's big plant at
Marshfield. "I am satisfied you
will be pleased to know that the
fust pulp mill ever built in the United
States for the purpose of producing
pulp exclusively from sawmill waste
is this one built by our compiny at
Marshfield," writes Mn Smith.
"We naturally hive been veiy
anxious, and still are. as to the ulti
mate results of his -irinv years of
study, and believe tint we are now
in position to stile that we have
reason to hope that our expectations
ol producing a splendid qif'ii c'
eommeicial pulp at a low cos. from
this waste v" be fully' prized in
the veiy ne r future.'' Coqu'Me

Facts Remain the Same.
It begins to lor-k as though the
citizens ol the ncrth end of the
county were going to contest the late
election on the gr.niuds that iwu
precincts sent in the teturns by mail.
Surely these penile understand
that the v le itself has nothing to
do with building of the bridge only
insofar as expi easing public opinion
to the county court. Should the
election be knocked out on techni
cal grounds, the lacts would remain
the same, that the people were in
favor by a big majority of the county
court building a conctete bridge.
