LITTLE GIRL RUN
DOWN BY BICYCLE
Failure of Bicycle Brake drork on
Edison Avenue Grade. Causes
Riding a bicycle on the sidewnli
nnd tlio failure of tho coaster brake
to work on the Edison Avenue grade
was the cause of tho serious injury to
the small daughter of Mr. Alex Ken
nedy yesterday, when Ike Martin, Jr.
delivery boy for the City Meat Market
collided with tho little girl at the
corner of Edition and Second Street,
throwing her to the sidewalk". The
child suffered a bad gash in the scalp
just above the forehead.
A fine of $,10 was handed out to
young Martin in the Municipal Court
in the afternoon for failure to dis
mount when passing u pedestrian
the sidewalk, as is required by the
City Ordinance. Martin said that he
was coming down the hill at a mode
rale rate of speed when the coaster
brake refused to work, and that wher
he reached Second Street tho wheel
was beyond bis control. He says he
was badly scared and did not see the
girl until be wns almost on her. The
blind corner here, formed by tho Ken
iiedy house and thebigh board fence
nlong the Second Street, makes tliir
spot particularly dangerous because
of tho fact that people coming wesl
on Edison Avenue or North on Second
Street are shut off from a view of the
intersecting street. Martin sny3 thai
he docs not know whether tho little
girl was nlredy on the sidewalk, oi
whether she had just come around the
blind corner, when he hit her.

F. G. Florian, tho man who met M.
G. Lutsey on the mat here about a
year ago, and was beaten by him, re
turned to Bandon Saturday to look
into some business matters, and in
cidentally to sec what are the pros
pects hr tho wrestling game again.
Mr. Florian says ho has a man
that he would like to bring liorc to
meet Lutsey and will back him for
any amout that tho Curry county
man cares to cover. Fiorina would
not divulge the name of the wrest
ler, but says that he weighs less than
1G0 pounds nnd will allow Lutsey to
go on the mat at any weight ho wants
to. As Lutsey's weight is about 1G5
pounds, this would seem to give biin
considerable advantage over the un
known.) Several Bandon wrestling fnns
have expresed a desire to see a good
matchvjund it is possible that this
match, will bo arranged.

Coquillo Lumber Mill Sold.
Last Saturday was the day set for
the foreclosure sale of the Coquillo
Lumber company's mill, half n mile
west of this city. The mortgage of
the Robert Dollar Company, under
which it was sold, with court costs
nnd interest, amounted to $20,000,
and it was hid in for about that by
the Dollar people This is less than
half tho actual value of (ho plant. It
was hoped that when tho mill be
came the property of a firm with
abundant capital it would be started
running again; but the lumber bus
iness has been so demoralized by the
war in Europe that it is uncertain
when any of the mills that have been
shut down will start again. Coquille

CO. JUDGES MAY
HOLD SIX YEARS
Forgotten Constitutional Amendment
Dug Up by Portland
That County Judge Hall's term of
office will not expire for two years,
and therefore thore will lie no elec
tion for that office thiR year, is the
startling possibility brought up by
the resurrection ut Portland of a for
gotten constitutional amendment.
The Portland Oergonian says:
Hopes of aspirants for the position
of County Judge in 18 Oregon coun
ties will, it is believed, lie dashed to
earth by the discovery by Portland at
torneys of the forgotten amendment
to the state constitution tha provides
Judges of Oregon courts shall hold
office for six years instead of four.
The effect of this is to leave pescnt
County Judges in office two years
longer. At the general election next
mom ii, candidates for County Judge
tire on the ballot in the following
named counties: Baker, Benton,
Clakamas, Clatsop, Coos, Douglas,
Gilliam, Grant, Harney, Josephine,
Klamath, Lake, Lane, Lincoln, Tilla
mook, Umatilla, Union and Yamhill.
The law so long over looked has slum
bered on page 1 of the 1011 session
laws and was passed by the people
at tlte general election In November,
1910, It is a constitutional amend
ment to article''?, section 1, und was
found in tho goneral search of the
law books that has followed the re
cent decision of tho Supcme Court in
the wide r.prcnd efforts of Portland
attorneys and others to establish tho
legal status of Judge Cleeton. .
