William G. Tait. who recently pur
chased a controlling interest In the
First National Bank of Tillamook, and
now occupies the position of president
of the institution, with Mrs. Tait, was
a guest at the reBort over the week
end. Great excitement was caused here
one evening last week by the announce
ment that a man had been seen on
Lion's Head Rock, about a mile off
shore and two miles from the hotel.
Careful observation with . powerful
glasses revealed what appeared to be
the figure of a man who apparently
was endeavoring to scale the rocks to
escape the rising tide and continually
waved his coat or other garment
toward the beach. A large crowd soon
o-.thereri along the shore to watch the
strange sight. Officers at the United
States lifesavlng station at uariDarai
were notified, but lacking a moter
boat, they did not care to take the
risk of crossing the bar In the heavy
surf In the teeth of the gale unless tt
became absolutely necessary. As the
afternoon wore on a thick mist gradu
ally hid the rock from view of the
watchers on the beacn, ano next morn
ing no further traces of any object on
the rock could be discovered.
Skeptical ones declare the whole mat
ter merely a figment of the imagina
tion, and it is thought the supposed
man may have been a colony of sea
lions sporting about on the rocks. The
affair has caused a gooa aeai oi specu
lation, however, and impressed upon
manv the necessity of urovidlng the
llfesavlng crew Just across the bay
with a powerful motorooat, so tnat
such things could be investigated in
future without the" hazard Incident to
putting to sea in an ordinary lifeboat.

It Is said In the communication that
the county now has two competent en
gineers examining the Burnside bridge
with a view to determining its carry

pected in a few days.
County Judge Cleeton is afraid that
a crush of traffic over the Burnside

which have been in existence for some
time, might result In a catastrophe,
and feels certain that in such event
adverse criticism would center on the
County Court. He takes the position
that prevention Is better than cure.
On the other hand he believes the court
