PHASES OF INDUSTRIAL GROWTH IN THE
"President Hofer, of Willamette
Valley League, Writes
FOR THE VISIT TO COOS BAY
Permanent Friendship Cemented Be
tween This City and Marvelously
Rich Section of Western: Ore
gon Transportation Needs.
PORTLAND, Or., June 3. (To the Edi
tor.) On behalf of tha Willamette Valley
Development League I wish to thank
The Oregonian and the business men of
Portland for the hearty and substantial
manner in which they helped out the
Farmers' and Shippers' Congress Just
pulled oft in the Coos Bay country. The
Oregonian had the foresight and the enter
prise to recognize that there was a crisis
in affairs of our state, so far as the com
mercial relations between the metropolis
and the cities on Coos Bay were con
cerned. Friction, founded on indifference in the
past to the needs of this section, had en
gendered misunderstanding and hostility
that only a friendly coming-together on
a broad basis could eliminate. And when
when the people of Coos Bay extended a
cordial and hospitable invitation to come
end be entertained by them In the com
mon cause of development, failure on the
part of Portland would have widened the
breach between us and a section belong
ing more to California than to Oregon
In the past, but now cemented by ties of
Kood will and friendship that can never
Ibe broken, and which will only be
strengthened by time and the experience
of closer business relations.
The people of the Coos Bay region feel
very grateful for the trip Henry L. Pit
itock made to this section of the state on
the occasion of the Farmers' and Ship
pers Congress held at North Bend. The
trip was a hard one for a man over 70 to
make, but he came in' fresh and happy
as the youngest, proving a good sailor, in
fact, enjoying himself at cards with other
gentleman all the way on a rather stormy
passage, when the Alliance was making
the shorellghts dance and many of the
passengers were seeing stars. Mr. Plt
tock not only served on the committee on
resolutions, taking broad views in the in
terest of this harbor, but sat through
every session of the congress, attended
the banquet into hours of dawn, but never
retired, leaving on the launch for the
overland trip via Drain as the sun was
rising over the mountains.
Compliments for Mr. Plttock.
The veteran business, manager of The
Oregonlan and Portland capitalist, whose
hand is felt in the encouragement of many
enterprises and industries, made many
wide trips into the coal mines, up Coos
River, and into the Coqullle country. He
seemed tireless in his determination to
see this region well. He entered thor
oughly into the spirit of the whole pro
gramme of bringing the people of the
Coos Bay country and the people of Port
end and the Willamette Valley into closer
friendly relations, and made himself a
positive factor In establishing the points
of contact that will result in commercial
intercourse on a large scale between the
At the banquet Mr. Plttock was made
the guest of honor, and a standing toast
was drunk to him by all the delegates.
When Portland had three large gather
ings on hand, and it seemed to the secre
taries of the Portland commercial bodies
almost impossible to' send a -delegation
over to the Coos Bay convention, he took
hold of the matter and made a personal
canvass of his friends to get up a credit
able delegation that would attend. And
the success of the whole affair was thus
insured by Mr. Plttock, without whose
efforts this congress would have been a
partial failure, instead of a grand suc
cess. He is the youngest and most en
ergetic man of his generation, and all
learned to love and respect Mr. Plttock
on this occasion.
While North Bend, the Coos Bay
town, vhere the sessions of the Con
gress were held, is the greatest man
ufacturing city between Astoria and
San Francisco, the older city of Marsh
field has commercial advantages as a
distributing point that attach to It as
the oldest city on the bay. Supplies
are distributed from here to the mines,
to the Coos River Valley and other
valleys, and to the logging camps in
scores of directions. A large trade In
flour and provisions and mill stuffs
has been built up between Portland
and Marshfield. This trade is bound
to increase, and since the San Fran
cisco fire more steamers than ever
have been running between the two
Harrimun's Valuable Terminals.
The decision of the Harriman system
to acquire the Coos Bay and Eastern
Railroad from here to Myrtle Point
makes Marshfield virtually the termi
nus of the Drain and Coos Bay exten
sion, as over a thousand feet of water
front go with the railroad into the
coal fields about this bay. The term
inal facilities that Harriman gets here
with the railroad he has bought are of
A single proposition was brought
out at the Farmers' and Shippers' Con
gress on Coos Bay, that will bear great
fruit, and will be worth millions to
the people of this part of the state
and will in return bring millions of
dollars of business to the city of Port
land and the Willamette Valley. If
the manufacturing enterprises and
3 0,000 families of Portland that use
coal would all give the preference to
Coos Bay coaL and much of it is as
pocd as the Wyoming, Canada or
Washington product, there would be
required a fleet of coal steamers which
in return would require freight 'and
would carry into that part of Oregon
the thousands of tons of articles of
merchandise that have come mainly
The use of "coal made In Oregon"
at Portland and in all Western Oregon
has greater possibilities of commerce
In every line of trade than any other
step of encouragement and develop
ment for home trade that can be taken.
There should be perfect enthusiasm
for the proposition among the people
of Portland, for the money expended
in mining, transporting and distribut
ing coal will all remain In the state.
While at Coos Bay nearly all the
delegates took a run over into the
Coqullle Valey, visiting the towns of
Coqullie and Myrtle Point, and the
many smaller points marked by saw
mills, logging booms and creameries.
Before returning we took steamer from
Myrtle Point and entered on a thor
ough exploration of the valley down
to Bandon at the harbor, and found
that the Coqullle .Valley is a small
hive of industries, with almost un
measured possibilities. There are
towns and sawmills and cream sta
tions and logging booms all . the way
from Myrtle Point to the ocean. There
sits the live town of Bandon. with
sawmills, shingle mills, woolen mills,
broom-handle factory, and last but not
least fine public schools, churches, and
a large export lumber trade.
See More Coal Mines.
We supposed we had left the coal
mines over on the Coos Bay side, but
there are a number of collieries with
coal bunkers on the Coquille River
ready to load vessels that draw from
12 to 15 feet of water.
There Is a big trade on the Coqullle
River in hay, feed, flour and all kinds
of staples. Most of this stuff is sent
from Oregon to San Francisco, and
then resold to the Coquille River coun
try, and brought here in schooner loads
at $2 to J2.50 per ton, when it might
be brought for the same money from
Portland direct. There Is a good har
bor here with Jetties on each side of
the channel, and vessels drawing from
12 to 15 feet of water have no trouble
entering and departing. Before the
harbor was improved vessels took out
50,000 to 100,000 feet of lumber. Now
they carry out 400.000 to 600,000 feet
easily, and there are few days in the
year a vessel is not loading at the
docks or hanging In the offing wait
ing for the tide.
Portland business men could do no
better than to put on a 600-ton steam
schooner between that city and the
Coquille, to bring In general merchan
dise and take out coal. That kind of
a "boat could go right up to the mines,
or even to Coquille, which is only 28
miles inland, and capture all the trade
of this country.
The wealth of the Coquille Valley Is not
easily estimated. The salmon fisheries, in
addition to all that has been mentioned,
are so rich the two- canneries have to
limit the number of boats that go out to
net them. Men here are millionaires and
are hardly aware of the fact, and It can
be said here is a county without a poor
man In It, a county where a child never
went supperless to bed, and it bids fair
to remain that way for many years to
come. We met one man, easily worth a
million, who came here without a dollar
in 1867 Adam Pershbaker, now a retired
merchant and dealer in timber lands.
Logging in Its Infancy.
There are men here who have made It
a rule of their lives to refuse no man a
dollar who asked it of them. Jack Tup
per, of Coquille, whose wife was the third
white woman to come into this region, is
one of them. Logging on the Coquille is
an Infant industry, but reaches into the
millions. Operations bo far have been
confined to snaking out the most beau
tiful sticks and dropping them Into the
water with a donkey engine.
Stumpage on the Coquille is worth from
75 cents to $1, and logs at the mill are,
worth $5 per thousand. They are the va
rious kinds of firs, spruce and hemlock.
Port Orford cedar (being the white), and
then a fine red cedar, logs from two to
five feet In diameter, and any length. The
hard woods, like maple, ash, myrtle, al
der, are being made up into door panels
and furniture, and will prove a veritable
gold mine. Millions of feet of logs are
brought over annually from the booms on
the Coqullle to the logging booms on Coos
Bay, booming and railroad transporta
tion costing jl.50 per thousand.
The need of a vessel to ply between
Portland and the Coqullle Is shown by the
fact that freight rates from Portland via
Coos Bay and by rail to Coquille River
points, requiring reloading on steamers
going below Coquille City, are $4 and $5
per ton, and hence almost prohibitive of
traffic, while rates from San Francisco
are J2.50 and as low as $2 per ton to Ban
don and points on the Coqullle River.
North Bend Is Progressive.
The nerve and enterprise of the City
of North Bend was manifested In so
many ways that it has burned itself into
the minds of the visitors, to remain for
ever. The suggestion was made at the
closing session of the congress that the
people of the Coos Bay cities secure an
act of the Legislature to create a Port of
Coos Bay Commission, with power to
levy a tax and improve their harbor chan
nels. The congress had barely adjourned
when the North Bend Chamber of Com
merce met and appointed a committee to
draft the plan for procedure for this very
A Joint committee on which the various
communities on the Bay are to be repre
sented will he created, as usual North
Bend taking the Initiative, and as usual
the youngest child of this miniature
Mediterranean will be at the forefront in
the effort to open this bay and its va
rious ports along modern lines of Im
provement. Bonds will be Issued on the
taxable district created, a modern suc
tion dredge purchased, and the harbor
lines cleared out to a uniform depth.
This Is the programme that Coos Bay
enterprise has entered upon as one re
sult of the congress Just held here. And
the General Government will be asked to
give Coos Bay 40 feet of water on the bar.
Postoffice Forger Captured.
Postoffiee Inspector Riches Saturday

at Everett, Wash., announcing the cap
ture there on the day before of a postal
money order forger, who is known to
have operated under various aliases
throughout cities of the Pacific North

FIRE INSURANCE LOSSES
San Francisco Man AVants to Boycott
PORTLAND, Or., June 3. (To the Edi
tor.) Permit a suggestion in reference to
the telegraphic reports in today's Oregonian
that the Insurance companies -will lop oft
fifty millions in their adjustment ot San
Francisco losses. It is to be hoped that the
Chamber of Commerce of that city will
give the names of the offending companies
who propose to steal this amount from
their policy holders. They can steal Just so
long as the people who Insure their property
stand for it.
I am a traveling man representing New
York houses through Montana, Idaho, Ore
gon and Washington, and it will be my
pleasure to call the attention, of my custom
ers who may have policies in the offending
companies and advise them to transfer them
at once to companies that are "honest."
There are a hundred traveling men rep
resenting San Francisco houses, who are
now at the mercy of these companies. Will
they remain quiet and see their firms looted
without resenting It? X should hope not!
It is within their power to resent it, and
In just the way I have mentioned. There
is an oft-quoted scriptural passage, "Am I
my brother's keeper?" Yes! And so long
as men are silent and fail to resent these
wrongs, the wrongs will go on.
Let us have the names of the offending
Let your Chamber of Commerc take it
up. They owe it to their members and the
security of your business people and com
munity at large to see that they are rightly
treated in things they pay for. Let the
traveling men who meet personally every
merchant doing business on this Coast put
in his silent, effective word.
Our San Francisco friends have suffered
as few ever have suffered. "Am I my
brother's keeper?" Tomorrow may be your
day of suffering. It is In the power of every
man who insures to protect the property of
his neighbor In future to see that the com
panies he uses are nonest- now.
GOING TO SWITZERLAND
Dowie Will End Days on Shores of
CHICAGO, June 3. (Special.) Word has
been received in Chicago from Geneva,
Switzerland, that John Alexander Dowie,
the deposed leader of the Christian Cath
olic Church of Zion, is planning to end his
days on the shores of Lake Constance,
near the city of Constance, which is the
home of Ruth Hofer. A newspaper pub
lished at Constance announces that Ma
dame Hofer, mother of Ruth, has received
a letter from the First Apostle, in which
he states that if he is unable to overcome
the obstacles now confronting him, he will
retire to Switzerland and settle on the
shores of Lake Constance.
Shortly after Voliva and his aides had
proclaimed a revolution in Zion City, the
name of Miss Ruth Hofer became linked
with that of the aged First Apostle.

LESSDN OF KLAMATH FALLS
METROPOLIS I, EARNS VALUE OF
Rival Street Railway Companies
Fight for Control of City's Main
KLAMATH FALLS. Or., June 3.
(Special.) There Is no Sunday in Klam
ath Falls. The activity in realty and
the building era, by which Main street
has been rapidly transformed from scat
tering stores to an almost continuous
line of business houses for more than a
mile, have now led to a truly metropoli
tan warfare between rival corporations
holding franchises for street railways on
the present principal business thorough
fare. The kernel of the nut seems to be
that when the Klamath Development
Company, an auxiliary of the California
Northeastern Railroad Company, was
granted the first franchise it was not
so restricted that any other company
should be permitted use of the same
tracks. But when at- a later date the
Klamath Canal Company was given a
franchise such restrictions were Im
posed in such a way as to make the
corporation subservient to the will of
the people as represented by the Council.
The Klamath Canal Company hastened
shipment of Its steel in order to lay a
portion of its track in adlvance of the
corporation holding the original fran
chise. The other company was striving
to lay Its rails first to save Its monopoly
as given In the original franchise. Then
the City Council took up the question
of revising and amending the franchise
of the Development Company to restrict
Its terms and pave the way for Joint
use of tracks by all corporations that
might In future build andi operate car
lines in Klamath Falls.
Although an inland city, with direct
rail connection with the outside world,
still 60 or 90 days away, this thriving
metropolis is being taught that fran
chises are a thing of such value as to
justify unusual expenditures for the
transportation of material overland, the
paying of 50 cents an hour for laborers

Street-Car Officials Discuss Decision
on Transfer Rule.
Although it was recently decided by a
New York court that passengers of street
cars are entitled to a transfer whether
or not they apply for It when they pay
their fare, attorneys for the local com
panies say it is an arbitrary rule which
has received Judiciary recognition. They
say that there must have been some
unusual circumstance connected with the
case which was tried in New York or
otherwise the decision would have been
They claim the fact that the enforce
ment of the rule that passengers must
ask for a transfer on paying fare is
necessary for prompt and efficient
service has been conceded by many other
courts and that it is in force all over
the world. The New York Appellate
Court held that the arbitrary rule laid

that a passenger is not entitled to a
transfer unless he applies for it as soon
as he pays his fare is incapable of en
forcement. Carrying out this decision, the court
affirmed a municipal court Judgment for
$50 obtained by Samuel Levine against
the Nassau Electric Railway Company
on the ground that he had waited too
long to ask for a transfer which was
refused him. The conductor testified that
It was 40 minutes after Levine paid his
fare when he asked for a transfer.
"There must have been some other
phases of the case that were not pub
lished,' said O. F. Paxton, attorney for
the Portland Railway Company, yester
day. "The rule is a well settled one and
the courts have recognized It as a rea

few rules, but this is a necessary one,

lines would be sadly Impaired.

NEW CHURCH DEDICATED
St. Johns Congregatlonalists Are in
Their New Home.
In the presence of a large audience the
fine,, new Congregational Church of St.
Johns was dedicated yesterday after
noon. Rev. Fred J. Warren officiated
and was assisted by the leading Con
gregational ministers of the city. After
the responsive services by the audience
there was an anthem by the choir, fol
lowed by scripture reading by Rev. R.
K. Ham, of the Hassalo Street Con
Rev. E. L. House. D. D., of the First
Church, delivered the dedicatory sermon,
and he spoke on the topic, "The Glori
ous Gospel," which was made appropri
ate to the dedication of the new church.
Rev. r. B. Gray, city missionary, then
read the appropriate scripture, which
was followed! by the formal dedication
by the pastor and the congregation.
This was followed by the dedicatory
prayer by Rev. J. J. Staub. of the Sun
nyside Congregational Church.
The building Is a beautiful reproduc
tion of the National Cash Register
structure that stood on the Lewis and
Clark Fair ground, and was donated by
that company to the St. Johns Church.
Rev. Fred J. Warren is the present
pastor. Following are the officers:
Deacons. C. W. Patter, D. J. Horsman,
D. T. Busby; deaconesses, Mrs. A. S.
Douglas, Mrs. B. T. Leggctt, Mrs. D. G.
Busby; clerk, D. G. Busby; treasurer, D.
J. Horsman; building committee, A. S.
Douglas. B. T. Leggett, C. W. Potter;
financial secretary. C. W. Potter; Sun
day school superintendent, H. W. Bon
ham. The middle stained glass windows,
"The Bible and the Cross and Crown,"
were given, by the First Congregational
Church of Portland. The Congregational
Church Building Society, of New York,
gave J1300 toward the erection of the
church, and the Ladies' Aid Society fur
nished the church. Cost was about J2400.
The church is considered one of the most
attractive in the! state.
Rev. W. Upshaw, now of the Mississippi-avenue
was the first pastor, and less than two
years ago the church was regularly or
ganized in a tent.
NEW CHURCH FOR ALBINA.
Mississippi - Avenue Congregation
Will Put Cp Handsome. Edifice.
The Mississippi-Avenue Congregational
Church has purchased a quarter block on
the corner of. Failing street and Alblna
avenue, and as soon as the arrangements
can be made, a new and handsome church
building will be erected, costing about
$10,000. It has been evident for some time
to the pastor and members that the pres
ent building- is too small for the work,
antl is not properly located. At the even
ing services the auditorium is not large
enough, and the Sunday school over
crowds the church. The intention is to
sell the present property, which is very
valuable for business purposes, and build
on the quarter block secured.
Rev. William Upshaw, the pastor, 'says
that he does not favor an elaborate
church, but one adapted to the work to
be done and the surroundings.
"This is not a rich district is not made
up of wealthy people," said Dr. Upshaw,
"and we want a comfortable and con
venient church edifice. This section of
Portland is growing rapidly, and we must
keep up with the progress of affairs."
It is quite a significant commentary on
the work of Rev. Mr. Upshaw to Bay that
in less than a year from the time he be
came pastor of the Mtesissippi-Avenue
Congregational Church, the work has gone
beyond the facilities.

Central Railway, which Is to connect
various points in this section of the
state, is making steady progress In con
struction work. The line is now com
pletely graded from Union to the town
of Cove, a distance of about 10 miles,
and the ties are now being delivered
along the grade. It was announced some

the population and productiveness of this
part of the valley.
The Central Railway has purchased
the Union Railway, running from this
city to the Union station on the O. R.
& N., and will use this line to form its
connection with that road. This line'is
about two miles long, but the company
Is now arranging to extend It up Cath

After leaving this city the line will
follow the south bank of Catherine
Creek for about 15 miles and then on
through the timbered country to the In
diana copper mines, near Medical
Springs, a distance of about 20 miles
from Union. The road is now located
for about 15 miles and the surveys will
be completed to the mines In the next
few days. The surveyors report a very
easy grade not exceeding 1 per cent.
The road will enter the timber belt
about five miles east of Union and con

railroad company that inside of the next
five years it will be one of the largest
cities In Eastern Oregon. Capitalists are
now arranging to establish saw mills
here with a capacity of 25.000,000 feet of
lumber per annum, and many other mills
will also be established, giving employ
ment to a large number of men. The
logs are to be hauled by cars to this city
and then manufactured into lumber
The railroad will also bring the traffic
of the mines of the eastern part of
Union County to this city. These mines
are awaiting the coming of transporta

Coffee Knifed an Old Soldier.
An old soldier, released from coffee at
72, recovered his health and tells about
it as follows:
"I stuck to coffee for years although It
knifed me again and again.
"About eight years ago (as a result of
coffee drinking, which congested my liv
er), I was taken with a very severe at
tack of malarial fever.
"I would apparently recover and start
about my usual work only to suffer a re
lapse. After this had been repeated sev
eral times during the year I was again
taken violently 111.
"The doctor said he had carefully stud
ied my case and it was either "quit coffee
or die,' advising me to take Postum in
Its place. I had always thought coffee one
of my dearest friends, and especially
when sick, and I was very much taken
back by the doctor's decision for I hadn't
suspected the coffee I drank could possi
bly cause my troubles.
"I thought it over for a few minutes
and finally told the doctor I would make
the change. Postum was procured for
me the same- day and made according to
directions; well, I liked it and stuck to it
and since then I have been a new man.
The change in health began in a few days
and surprised me, and now, although I
am 72 years of age, I do lots of hard
work and for the past month have been
teaming and driving 16 miles a day, be
sides loading and unloading the wagon.
That's what Postum in the place of coffee
has done for me. I now like the Postum
as well as I did coffee.
"I have known people who did not care
for Postum at first but after having
learned to make It properly according to
directions they have come to like it as
well as coffee. I never miss a chance to
praise it." Name given by Postum Co.,
