COOS' VAST WEALTH
Assessment Does Not Begin to
. ;Show Value.'
MUCH IS ' YET' UNDEVELOPED
Minions of Tons of Coal in Mines and

Real Estate Venture's.
NORTH 'BEND, Or., Oct 23.-Speclal
Correspondence.) Coos County's assess
ment rolls this year was $3,633,907. This
is a sain of more than $600,000 over the
year before. Next year It will easily pass
the $4,000,000 mark and may reach $5,000,
000. The town of North Bend will make a
bi Increase" on the assessment roll next
This by no means represents the actual
value of Coos County property. County
Assessor T. J. Thrift, who gives these
figures, states that it Is the rule to assess
property at about one-fourth its real
value. Money itself and notes and ac
counts are assessed at only 50 per cent.
Fifteen million dollars is. a low estlmatS
for the cash value of Coos County prop
erty. The prospective wealth of the ogunty
is many times this. For instance, the
county has S00.000.p00 tons of coal and
400,000,000 of this can be mined. There
is also In the county and tributary to
Coos Bay 40,000,000,000 , feet of timber.
Coos County with the advent of railroads
is destined . to be very wealthy and will
rank second only to Multnomah. '
Notwithstanding the low valuation, the
tax rate Is low. The levy for county pur
poses Is 33 mills, and in the towns 10 to
15 mills more is added for city and school
purposes. .It is sometimes said that a
low valuation and high tax rate tends
to create a bad impression among invest
ors, but It Is doubtful if it ever deceives
a shrewd business man.
Growth Gradual and Steady.
Coos County, since the day it was cre
ated, December 22. 1S53, has had a slow
but steady growth. The year that closed
with the last assessment roll marked the
greatest increase in values. During the
51 years of Its existence the growth ha3
been natural and Investments as a rule
have been on a solid foundation. Out
side of a few local disturbances, property
has had a fixed -but constantly appreciat
ing value and was good security for loans.

Twenty years ago the assessment was

what it is now.
The largest single taxpayer in the
county is the Simpson Lumber Company.
In round numbers it is assessed at $250.-

$S000 as Its share of the county taxes.

A Study in Town Lots.'
The town lots offer an interesting sub
ject. The total number of 26,147 at $150
each, which is about the average price
for a lot. would more than make up the
assessment roll itself. The assessment
of those lots in the five principal towns
In the order in which they rank in num
ber of lots is as follows:

HOW TO JUGGLE CAKES
Demonstrator at Department Store Causes Woe in Portland Home
ptsp. GLiIB-TONGDED young man, with
,j tinware to sell and knowledge of
m the art of cakp-making to impart,
was the cause of serious trouble in a
home out on King's Heights last week,
and If he knows what is good for him, he
will steer clear of p. wrathy housewife,
who followed certain directions of his In
making that toothsome dessert. The
young man in question has been giving
a series of lectures In one of the depart
ment stores of the city, which have been
well attended by women of all ages and
stations in society, from the millionaire's
wife to the professional cook. The lec
tures, which were free and were for the
purpose of advertising the tin cake pans,
flour-sifters and egg-beaters which he
has to selL were on the subject of cake
baking, and were demonstrated, a gas
range having been put in for the occa
sion. The women watched the demonstrator
with interest as he deftly whipped his
eggs, creamed the butter and sugar, and
mixed them ail with the flour, talking a
hlue streak' the meanwhile about the
great advantage of using Carter's Crack
Cake pans, which he warranted to do
everything a cook could possibly desire.
Now every woman who knows beans
about making cake knows that tle very
hardest part of the performance Is to
bake it without "falling" or becoming
"sad." A man may not know exactly
what a -"sad" cake is. but he generally
fees that way after he had eaten one
that had a streak through It which looked
soggy or uncooked. "Falling" is supposed
to be caused by Jarring the stove or mov
ing the pan in the oven before the dough
has cooked through, and it is the reason
that mother will not let the children or
"father" come into the kitchen while
she is doing the week's baking.
"Ladies, the common fallacy about a
cake falling because the pan is moved
should never be believed by any sensible
woman." said the lecturer, as he put a
pan of cake dough into the oven. "Don't
let your cook put up any such stbry when
a bad cake is served. There Is absolutely
nothing to it. "Why, ladies, with Carter's
Crack Cake pans It Is absolutely Impos
sible Jor a cake to XalL You not-'only
can take the pan out of the oven while
the cake Is baking." but you can turn it
over you can juggle It up and down like
a rubber ball, you can throw it on the
table until It gets nearly cold, and yet it
will finish baking when you return it to
the oven and come out perfect. Ladies"
"What inalla roe no sabe he don tiall
you takee out an see." exclaimed n j crying spell. It is best to pull the cur
Chlnese cook, who had been intently I taio.
$250; Coquille, $25 to $400; Empire, -$5 to
$200; Myrtle Point. $15 to $300; North
Bend, $15 to $200.
All these figures need explanation.
"Within the year lots have sold in North
Bend at $3000, but North Bend was found
ed only within the past two years. The
Assessor said that town next year would
stand a raise of three or four times the
To make up the seemingly enormous
total of lots must be added six other
towns,1, Glasgow, Alleghany, Sumner, Riv-
erton, Bangor and Randolph Randolph
Is tiling of the past, beach-mining hav
ing subsided, but the others are active
communities. Some other towns never
filed plats or else have gone back to acre
age, namely, Millicoma, Coos City. Utter
City, Coaledo, Beaver Hill, Beaverton,
Freedom and Newport.
There have been one or two slight flur
ries in the value of town property, but
only one genuine scandal 'in the history
of the county. This. Is reflected In the
$1 lots the Assessor has on his roll from
Bandon. It was 14 years ago that one
A. J. Hackett, with a far-sightedness be
yond the vision of most men, discovered
that Bandon was to be the greatest port
on the Pacific.
Lithographs That Lied.
The Government was just then start
ing- the improvements on -the jetties at
the harbor entrance. Hackett saw his
opportunity. He had four-masted schoon
ers up to Bandon dock while yet the
river was only navigable for vessels of
less than 100 tons. On the lithographs
he had struck off the ports of San Fran
cisco and Portland paled Into insignifi
cance In comparison with .Bandon.
All this was done to boom town lots.
Hackett had secured the Woolslugger
quarter-section, lying about a mile south
of Bandon, for $2500. Ho laid off the
Portland addition to the city Into about
1600 lots. Bandon was then a village
of some 200 or 300 people. Hackett went
East, to Philadelphia and other places,
and sold these lots at $300 and $400 each.
When the investor? found out the real
state of affairs they declined to pay taxes
and the county has been gradually giv
ing out tax deeds to the property.
It was last Spring that the county put
up 500 of" these lots at A tax sale. They
were assessed at $1 each or about $10 an
acre. The property was wholly unim
proved, covered with the squaw pine, and
acreage property alongside, that was just
as good "or better, was assessed at 51 o.
J. J. Stanley, the Coquille attorney and
Mayor of the city, knew all this. He
could buy a quarter-section cheap and
make his own lots. But he decided to
speculate In Portland addition. Ho bid
7. cents each, and the whole 500 lots were
knocked down to him. Mr. Stanley now
has $35 tied up in unproductive real, es
tate But it Is not the purchase ' price
which need worry him. but the tax levy.
which Is near 50 per cent of his invest
ment At this rate, Mr. Stanley could
have bought the whole addition for $100
for which Woolslugger got $2500 and for
which the Easterners paid nearly $500,000.
But let no one think from this that there
is not a great future for Bandon. The
only trouble with Mr. Hackett was -that
he was in advance of his time.
Mars'ifield Lot Most Valuable.
The most valuable town lot in the
county, according to, tb'e record, is the
Lockhart corner. In JJarshfield. This is
assessed at $900. It is probable that next
year North Bend will claim this honor.
It may be a surprise to some to learn
that with all this wealth in Cocs County
there are no very expensive buildings
outside of mill property. The new Ma
sonic Temple in Marshfleld stands a.t the
head of the list and that cost $20,000.
The County Courthouse at Coquille and
the Marshfleld public school come next
each costing $11,000.
The future will see some great deals
in real estate on Coos Bay. At present
there are only a few very wealthy men in
the county, and these have been content
with modest Improvements. But the bay,
for 30 miles around the water front Is sur
rounded by wooded hills. Those on the
feast side reach 500 feet high. The view
from these hills Is magnificent Some
day all these hills will be appropriated and
made" the country villas of men of wealth.
But when that day comes Coos Bay will
have a transcontinental railroad and will
have the second city in the state.
Suggestions, Local and General.
PORTLAND. Nov. 3. To the Editor.) Port
land people formerly thought Seattle was the
coming city. Some of them put their money
.there and want to get It back. But two years
witnesses a change. So many solid buildings.
so many hemes, have materialized here that (
even the blind can see. And then the new di
rectory and school children tell srich a story
that the pkcptlcs are becoming convinced.
But A says to JB. v,WaIt till after the Fair

land Is booming on the Lewis and Clark Expo
sition; when It Is over you can buy these
houses for a eong." That Is right, gentlemen,
whoop It up. and after the Fair there will bo
romany of you looking for bargains in real
estate that In consequence you will pay 25 or
50 per cent more tharrit would cost you now-
But let us drop this subject and turn to the
coming erection. It Is only Just one week when
you will have the opportunity to vote for 1 'res

"That's It, John ask me questions; and,
ladies, you ask me questions, too. I want
you all to be interested and investigate
just what these wonderful pans will do."
And he thereupon took a pan of half-
baked cake from the oven, gave It a shake
which would have ruined hardtack,
flopped it down on the table, where it sat
until every woman got nervous because
all that good dough was being wasted.
After they were convinced that it was
ruined, he took it up, dexteriously turned
It over In midair, and whisked It back
into the oven In a manner wbich would
have made a wafer out of a sponge cake
for any woman there. But. strange as it
may seemf when the taking was finished,
that cake came out perfect- It was
browned to a finish, was thoroughly done,
and had not a suspicion of sadness about

The Kings Heights woman, got up uu-
