JOE COACH AND JOHN HKRRON
FINED FOR GIVING LIQOUR
TO MINORS. MAY AP
In the case of the City of Bandon
vs. Joseph W. Coach for giving li
quor to minors, which was tried in
municipal court last Saturday, Coach
was found guilty and fined $200.00
and costs by Municipal Judge Kaus
rod. John, Herron, who was tried
later on tho samo charge, was given
a fine of $50 and costs. These two
wen aro operating the Club saloon
and now claim that thoy will appeal
the cases to tho Superior court. Should
they do this is is probable that the city
council will revoke their license at
once, as they have the right to at any
time it is shown that a saloon is not
being conducted according to tho or
dinance governing saloons.
City Attorney Tcradgold says ho
will sco to it that tho law and the or
dinaneo aro enforced and that any
saloon caught 'violating them will be,
dealt with accordngly.
A number of the councilmen have
stated that thoy will stand back of

with 'there will be something doing.

Bandon Mill Will Not Move
IS TO COMMENCE AGAIN
GEO. W. MOORE SETS AT REST
.RUMORS. SHUT DOWN IN
BANDON IS ONLY
Since the Geo. W. Moore Lumber
"Company of thisc ity has taken over
tho Toledo Lumber Company's mill
at Toledo there has been much spot
ulation as to what would be done with
the Bandon mill. Numerous wild ru
mors have been circulated as to its
having been sold to other parties,
that it was goin to bo dismantled and
moved to Toledo, etc., such reports
even appearing in the Portland pa
pers. In conversation with Mr. Geo.
W. Moore, a representative of Tho
Recorder was informed that there
was nothing to any of tho rumors
and the fact that tho cmopany had
taken over tho Tolcao mill would
have no effect on the Bandon mill
whatsoever. The mill at Toledo has
a capacity of about 75,000 feet a day
ind Mr.- Mooro says there is no oc
casion for. increasing its capacity at
present, as it is amply able to cut
all the lumber that is required at pres
ent. Mr. Moore stated that just as soon
as tho lumber market picked up suffi
ciently to justify it the Bandon mill
would start up again and bo oper
ated as before. He has an option on
lpenty of timber to keep the mill op
srating for a number of years and
this wlil be procured and operations
started as soon as operations can bo
comenecd at a profit.
With this fact jn view all who have
been so fearful of tho mill moving
away, or shutting down permanently
may rest easy. As an indication of
the real condition of the lumber mar
kot it is stated that there are 117
mills between tho Rocky mountains
und tho Pacific ocenn, and of thse
13 arc nhut down, 10 aro running oc
part timo and 58 on fu'l tuno. It will
thus ! Feen that loss thin half of
tho lumber mills aru running full
time. It is not expected tl-nt this con
dition will lost long ans as soon as
the market becomes noltcr 3omo of
tho mills will start up ami tho Mooro
mill will bo among thu first ones, aa
there is no better plant on tho cou3l
and none that can operate moro eco
nomically. INSTITUTE V. R. C. CORPS

Tho story of this part Is as follows:
"True it is that Lucille has regain

ments still she is in a more danger
ous position than over before. She
again finds herself in the power of
Hugo Loubequo in his San Francisco
house. Her position is especially dan
gerous because Loubeque is now tired
of tho extreme bother she has caused
him. She realizes that ho is now in
deadly earnest and when ho demands
teh return of the papers she prompt
l yhands them to him in fright and
misgiving. A fortunate incident to
dvert Loubequc's angor occurs when
Tompson enters tho room. Lucillo
accuses him of stealing her jewels,
and to provo it takes the stolen jowels
from his pocket. Loubequc's pent up
fury then breaks out on the butler.
Thes py knocks the man down and
strangles him into insensibility. While
Lucillo s watng for her fate to be de
eded she looks out of tho window nnd
there sees Lieutenant Gibson, tho
man she loves, and who is in tho sama
predicament as her father in that

at the point of a pistol. Loubeque
holds up his hands and leans against
a door, which revolves and tho spy

trustee, with offsets for "all timber
unlawfully removed and- all lands
fraudulently sold to other parties."

She was coming homo from a bas
ket social on horseback and when
sho was nearly homo her horso bo
camo frightened, throwing the young
lady off and dragging her about a
quarter of a mile when sho somehow
was jerked loose. She lay in the road
n an unconscious state until 7 o'clock
n the morning when she was found by
Mr. Young of Pike's logging camp,
woh happened by at that timo.
Tho fact that sho had not reached
home did not alarm her folks as they
tlipposed sho had stopped over night
at S. W. Olsen's place and that she
would come home in tho morning.
Consequently thoy knew nothing of
the accident until they wore notified
about eight o'clock Sunday morning.
The young lady has a bad gash in
her head whero sho evidently struck
a log by tho side of tho road and is
otherwise badly bruised up. Up to

injuries might provo fatal.
