people, among whom were many- from .Coos
qpunty who made the long trip to Port
land for the express purpose of being
present at the dedication. Although
Isolated -and Its products, for the .most
part, find markets In California. Coos
Count' is loyal to Oregon. Pride In Ore
gon Is so strong that its people were not
satisfied to decorate a booth in the Agri
cultural building .as other counties of the
state have done, but erected a structure.
Coos County has the best exhibit of any
county participating in the Exposition,
either of "Washington or Oregon. The Coos
County people did not make such a won
derful exhibit solely because of the spirit
of aggressiveness and the desire to excel
all other counties; It was made partly be
cause they wanted to sec the Lewis and
Clark Exposition a- success, and knew
that In helping the Fair they were help
ing Oregon.
The proud but modest citizens from
Coos County held the exercises at 11
o'clock yesterday morning. They did not
say much about their own building; they
let the others do that. Instead, they told
of Coos County, of Its resources. Its
future, and of their pride in Oregon ana
the Exposition.
H. G. Topping, of Bandon. presided.
President Jefferson Myers, of the Oregon
State Commission, delivered an address.
He was eloquent. In thanking the people
of Coos Bay for their representation at
the Exposition. "You have the most won
derful county In the state." said President
Myers. "You are a big people; your In
terests are big. Your little county, miles
from any railroad, has done more at this
Exposition than any state east of the
Rocky Mountains. This beautiful build
ing should be maintained forever."
Colonel Henry E. Dosch. director of ex
hibits for the Exposition, welcomed the
visitors on behalf of President Goodc and
the corporation. After complimenting the
people of Coos County upon their splendid
exhibit, the speaker elicited considerable
amusement by stating that 20 years ago
he was a citizen of Coos County, and that
while there he caught the Coos Cdunty
fever, and had had it ever since.
A. J. Sherwood, of Coquille City, re
sponded to the addresses of welcome. He
expressed the hlsh opinion Coos County
citizens bad of the Importance of the Ex
position. He said that Coos County had
taken advantage of the opportunity to
advertise its resources.
Robert Burns, member of the House of
Representatives in the Oregon Legisla
ture, also delivered an address. He is
from Coquille County and praised the
people of Coos County for their enter
prise and liberality In erecting the build
ing. He said they wcro pulling together
and in time would accomplish wonderful
"Coos County greatest resource," said
Dr. J. T. Marshfleld. who concluded .the
ceremonies, "is her harbor. She needs a
railroad to connect with the outside
world. She has the greatest amount of
natural resources of any county In the
state. That her citizens are enterprising
is shown by this building, in connection
with which I would especially mention In
terms of praise Mayor L. J. Simpson, of
Marshfleld. Coos Bay Is a modern Venice,
with ICQ gasoline launches to take the
place of gondolas. It has 11 sawmills, two
woolen mills, one match factory, two
foundries, an excelsior factory. 12
creameries, a cbndensary. six shipyards,
six launch factories, a sash and door fac
tory, several shingle mills and lota of good
and beautiful women."
