COOS COUNTY MAIL TO COME
IN MYRTLE POINT ROUTE
That the mail service for Coos
county the coming year will be via
tho Myrtle Point-Roseburg route is
the belief of J. O. Stemmler, who
is hero from Myrtle Point. In re
sponse to the matter letters and
petitions received opposing the pro
posed abolition of tho Myrtle-Point-
Roseburg route, Senator Chamberlain
wired him that the Postofilce Depart
ment had decided to ask new bids.
Mr. Stemmler believes that this is
equivalent to agreeing to continue
the service that way. Tho plan is
understood to bo to ask for bring
ing in all of the Coos and Curry mail
that way. There are several bidders
whose bids were rejected before. Tho
lowest bid was about $35,000 per
year, which is $5500 more than is
being paid for the service now. Tho
total pay for the service to tho Co
quille Valley via Myrtle Point and to
Coos Bay via the old Coos Bay wagon
road is $29,500. In addition to this
increase, there would bo another in
crease for whatever tho railroad
charges for handling the mail be
tween Coos Bay and Myrtlo Point.
It is understood that Contrator
Barnard is among those bidding. He
is bidding on the basis of having to
buy a whole new outfit, the same as
the others are bdding, although Bar
nard would be able to use the old
outfits that he is now using. It is
claimed that it would cost $18,000 to
buy an outfit to handle the mail ser
vice and owing to tho uncertainty of
the contract being for longer than a
year, many who would like to bid on
it nre afraid of taking tho chance. Mr.
Stemmler says that Contractor Bar
nard has informed him that nt tho
present contract price ho would loso
money if it wasn't for the money he
is taking in on the passenger traffic.
