as a multi-millionaire, was dying. His
Counsel, William Travers Jerome, said
he was suffering from a serious arrec
tlon of the liver, and that it would
shorten his life to require him to ap
pear in court.
The litigation grew out of an effort
to reopen a case In which judgment for
$275,000 was obtained against Heinze
by default by Edwin Gould and William
Nelson Cromwell. It was for a promis
sory note given after the panic of 1907
in part payment for stock of the Mer
cantile National Bank, which Heinze
Alton B. Parker appeared for Gould
and Cromwell today, opposing the mo
tion to reopen the case.
I would like to have your honor go
in person to be sure that nobody plays
possum on us." he said, "for, in my
long experience in such cases, I know
that any man who does not want to be
examined can have hemorrhages ga
Later three physicians and several
lawyers called at Mr. Heinze's home
and ex-Judge Parker explained they
would examine the copper magnate to
determine whether it would endanger
his life if the taking of an affidavit
were not postponed. The examination
lasted half an hour and at its close no
one would discuss the condition of Mr,
Heinze. Decision was reserved to be
given in court Monday.

BEND, Or,' June 18. (Special.)
A new record for big fish has
been set for the Deschutes River.
This time the "biggest fish" is
not the one that got away, but
the one that actually was hooked
and landed and now occupies the
center of a block of ice which in
turn is'the center of local sports

The big fish is a "red Bide"
trout, measuring 26 inches long
and weighing seven pounds. Its
girth is 13 inches. The lucky
angler is Clyde McKay, deputy
game warden, who landed the big
fellow Sunday at Crane Prairie,
near the headwaetrs of the river
some 40 miles from Bend. The

has been specially excellent, and

BANDON. Or., June 18. (By Staff
Correspondence.) "Bandon by the Sea'
is what these people like to have their
town called, I mean their city. Bandon
is no longer a hamlet, village or little
town. It sure is "by the sea." It also
is on the Coqullle River. I can step

One of the great industries is tne
shipping of telegraph and telephone
poles and railroad ties. The docks are
piled high with the ties and there are
many great rafts of poles In the river.
Tie and Pole Industry Big.
These ties and poles are made from
white or Port Orford cedar. The ties
are practically rot-proof and the poles
will outlast others, it is said.
Years ago much of the timber around
here was cut off, but there was left
great mass of old logs and poles.

Later it was found that this agea

and a great industry sprang up. It
will last for years to come. The Santa
Fe Railroad has taken millions of these
ties and will take millions more.
Since my last visit here. In Novem
ber. 1912, Bandon has grown much.
The residence section has spVead out
for long distances on the hills, or high
ground, many large and substantial
business buildings have been erected,
much paving has been done, the wharves
have been greatly improved, miles of
sidewalks and curbs have been put in
and now Bandon Is about as nice a
little city as you can find in Oregon.
The population is around 3000, possi
bly a hundred or so less. But the bus
iness aspect bespeaks a city of many
more people than that.
Per Capita Earnings f-2.25 Daily.
The Bandon people figure that per
capita they have by far the largest
payroll in Oregon. It is about 12.25
per capita per day, or some $7000 each
working day of . the year. One wonders.
at first, who pays all this money, but
when one looks at the shipping indus

and box factories, several ship-building
plants, the creameries and the ad
jacent coal mines, the logging, tie and
pole camps, the large mercantile estab
lishments, the small and large manu
facturing plants in other industries, it
is found that Bandon Is a regular bee
hive of industries.
Bandon by the Sea." I suppose the
name arose from a further reason that
Bandon lays great claims to being a
Summer resort. The beach here is
noted for Its beauty and adaptability
as a bathing resort.
It Is well patronized during the Bum
mer seasons, particularly by the people
up the Coquille River, as far as navi
gation extends, particularly Myrtle
There are excursions run down here
almost every day during the bathing
season, and many others come down to
dig clams, delve for rock oysters ana
other shellfish. Many more come "crab
bing." For crabs it is said the waters
hereabouts are unexcelled.
City Has Three Newspapers.
Bandon has three newspapers, the
Western World, the Bandon Recorder
and the Bandon Surf.' Felsheim &
Howe run the World, Charles Koph, the
Recorder, and Miles Moore, the Surf.
The Recorder is a semi-weekly and the
others are weekly. Each has a good
Job department and all of them seem
to be doing well.
There are two banks, the Dirst na
tional and the Bank of Bandon. H. L.
Houston is president and E. B. Webb
cashier of the former and John L. K.ro-
nenberg, president, and Frank Fahey,
cashier of the latter. These banks
serve the people well, especially in
panic seasons, when other banks close
their doors. Both have large deposits
and pay good dividends.
There are two good hotels here, the
Bandon House, kept by Ernest G. Cas-
sidy. and the Hotel Gallier, kept by
Steven and Ed Gallier. I am stopping
at the Gallier, where I was welcomed
by the clerk 4who has been there for
six or seven.ears, J. D. wells. He

Bandon, It is never more than two days
between boats leaving or arriving tor
points up and down the Coast. There
are five boats plying- regularly between
here and San Francisco and intermedi
ate points, the Elizabeth, Fifield, Speed
well, Brooklyn and Grace Dollar. There
are several coasters making such har
bors at Gold Beach and Port Orford,
the Rustler and Randolph among them,
that touch here regularly.
As to the freight carriers those men
tioned carry freight and passengers
well, there must be 20 different sloops
and schooners that come in here and
take out loads several times each year.
It Is no uncommon sight to see eight
or 10 vessels in the lower harbor at
the same time, aside from the river
boats; there are several of them. One
can get up as far as Myrtle Point twice
each day and as far as Coquille five
or six times by these craft. The boats
are well fitted for passengers and the
trip a most delightful one. for the Co
quille River Is a beautiful stream.
Climate la Equable.
The climate nere is very equable. It
never gets eold enough to freeze, never
gets very warm, that is uncomfortably
warm. The sun may be pretty hot In
the middle of the day, that is apparent
ly hot; if you look at the thermometer,
you will find it in the eighties. The
nights are always cool. At the Gal
lier the landlord told me they had a
fire In the office stove every night of

dairy Industries alone would build up
a city here, for there are as good open
ings for the dairyman hereabouts as
can be found anywhere. All around
there is fine land for sale at low prices.
The pasturage is good the year through.
Up the Coquille for 60 miles, down the
ocean front towards Port Orford, up as
far as the Coos Bay jetty, back In the
hills to the east, northeast and south
east, all around, the cows are coming
in rapidly, but there Is plenty of room
for thousands more.
There is another thing about Ban
don that always pleases me the opti
mism of the people. You can take in
every business house In town and ask
"how's business" at each place and the
universal answer will be "good." There
seems to be a dearth of knockers and
soreheads and a full quota of men who
believe In the town and are always
ready and willing to say a good word
for it. Where there is a majority with
such faith, a city cannot fall to forge
to the front. Bandon will surely keep
up her growth for years to come.
And when the Willamette-Pacific
trains start running through the townl
Then Bandon will surely become a
place of great Importance. The right-of-way
lies Just through the eastern
part of town, on the high land, then
follows closely along the present wagon
road to Port Orford. After leaving
Coos Bay, Bandon will be the largest
place touched until Empire Is reached,
more than 100 miles south of the Cali
fornia line. Yes, with the completion of
the Willamette-Pacific, Bandon will be
known as a place of great importance.
