At the present time the Bandon
beach and city park are regular cities
of tents, there lieinir rows of them
along the beach extending from Tup
ner Rock to Bennett's beach, a dis
tance of about three miles.

as Grays Harbor, Washington, to as
far south as Stockton, California,
and from the interior of Washington,
Oregon and California, including the
cities of North Yakima, Wash., Rose
burg and Ashland, Ore., and many
A little trip along the beach just
ilow would bo of interest to anyone,
and to hear the praise of the beauti
ful beach that we have here would
help Bnndonians to realize what a
wonderful place it is to outsiders.
At present there arc hundreds of
campers hero and as we have said
they come from all parts of the
coast. A few of them with whom the
Recorder representative mot while
making the round of the beach are:
P. J. Ballf and Frank Brown of
Roseburg. Mr. Brown is a brother of
Geo. M. Brown, the famous prose
cuting attorney, and who received
the Republican nomination for At
torney General, at the primaries.
W. Henry and family of Nights
Landing, California, are here with a
rig, and aro thinking Seriously of lo
cating in Bandon and will probably
go into the restaurant business.
R. W. Oglesbee and family and J.
P. Joiner and wife, of Stockton, Cal.,
arrived yesterday for a couple of
weeks camping. They made the trip.
Many aro here from nearby towns.
Among these aro J. E. Norton and

Tho campers aro all enjoying them

there would be thousands of campers

While Resisting Arrest
By Officer Blackerby At
Ven Dome Hotel,
Marion Hodges was shot in the arm
last night by Constable E. M. Black
erby, the affair taking place in the
Hotel Ven Dome on Second street.
According to report Hodges had
been imbibing a little too freely and
was conducting himself in an unbo
coming manner. Officer Blackerby
happened to be on the scene and or
dered Hodges to behave himself, and
at this tho latter grabbed him by the
throat and commenced to choke him
Ho put his hand to his pocket as if
to draw a gun. Blackerby took aim
at his hand, thinking to make him
let loose, and in tho scuffle the bullet
took effect in Hodges arm, causing
only a slight flesh wound.
Hodges was placed under arrest,
on a charge of disorderly conduct
and fined $10 and given two days in
jail. The purposo of tho latter sen

RUN OF SALMON
Industry Will Add Consid
erable to Bandon's Pay
roll if it Meets With
John Ncilson informs The Record
er that the work of deeo sea fishinir
for salmon with the big purse seino
would begin just as soon as tho
weather would permit, and the fish
begin to school again.
It is the hope of the promoters of
the new industry to cutch sovcrul
thousand fish on the outside. This
will not have any effect on the run of
fish in tho river later, as these fish
will be those that arc passimr un and
down the coast and would enter the
smaller streams whore there are no
fisheries or canneries.
Tho salmon begin to collect from
the middle to tho latter part of Au
gust and continue for several months.
If tins proves a success in addition
to the regular run of salmon in the
lver this fall, it will mean that tho
largest pack of fish the canneries on
the river have ever put up will bo
packed this year.
Tho company that will handle the
deep sea fishing was organized sev
eral months ago, and is made up en
tirely of local capital. They have so-
cured an excellent outfit of boats
and seines and if tho run of fish war
rants they will add more.

Eugene Register: Ballasting on
the Willamette Pacific railway will
be resumed on Thursday of this week
and a stretch of 11 miles of track will
oe leveled and placed in condition for
operation. A steam shovel, which has
been in use on tho lino along the Sius
law river was taken to Natron yes

tion at tho S. P. gravel pit near that
town. The company owns a largo
tract of land near the Willamette
river there from which all of tho bal
last that has heretofore been used
on tho W. P. has been taken. Tho
track is now ballasted to a point 32
miles fromEugeno, and with tho ad
dition of tho 11 miles to bo ballast
ed immediately there will bo a
stretch of track 13 mile3 long that
will bo in shape for the operation of
trains over it. Thin additional bal-
astlng will extend ac far as the third
(ridge ucrosd tho Slusluw river. It
i expected that train servico will be
tended that far just as soon as the
gravel is spread and tamped and tho
-rack leveled. Several train loads of
gravel each day will bo taken from
the pit near Natron to tho "front" un
