Point, thence by stage to Roseburjr. or
from Bandon to Marshfield, thence by
stage to Drain, If overland trips are
desired; otherwise, by steamer to Port
land or .to San Francisco..
A fair indication of the number of
transients in and, out. of Bandon tar

Gallier Hotel, which is one of the three
good hotels in Bandon. This register
shows that there is an average of 25

BANDON'. Or-Jan. 25. (Special.)
"How lo you reach Bandon?" is a
question that puizlcs the trans
portation agents of the South and East
and even along the Pacific Coast such a
question is toi much for many of the
employes in the railroad and steamship
offices. In order to locate the place,
tuey must refer to the route books and
maps. The writer, coming from tat
tle Rock. Ark., last May on the South
ern Pacific, by way of San Francisco,
asked at the Southern Pacific office, on
Third and Townsend, in San Francisco,
the direction to Bandon. Fully 20
mlnute3' time was consumed in looking
up the location of Bandon.
Not until the last two years has any
means of transportation been in serv
ice that has been measurably adequate
to handle the traffic coming In and
going out of the Interesting port or
Bandon. The pioneers, such as Colonel
It. H. Itosa. William Hammerburg, the
Pushbakers and Noslers. had to make
trails for themselves inland through
the deep forests in order that an occa
sional trip might be made to the base
of supplies and to the nearest postof
tlce at Hermansvllle. This place was
reached by the mailcarrirer out of
Itoseburg and was the only office for
many years in the Interior of Coos
At the present time Bandon is forg
ing into the notice of travelers and
prospectors throughout the Nation and
occupies a conspicuous place on the
maps. There are 18 oceanic vessels
that regularly call at Bandon's harbor.
Four of these ply between Bandon
and San Francisco, two between Ban
don and Portland and the remainder
are coastwise trade vessels.
New Roidi Planned
But Inland highways are not as well
developed, though much has been done
to Improve and open up new avenues.
While the wagon roads are not passa
ble this Winter for automobiles, other
conveyances can get through. In Sum
mer travel by any sort of conveyance
Is a delight all the way from Bandon
to Roseburg, a distance of S5 miles.
The Coos-Curry County Good Roads
Association is agitating the building
of a hard-surface road from Bandon
and Marshfield to Myrtle Point, thence
on the Douglas County line. Since the
state failed to call into existence an
amendment allowing counties to raise
the road tax limit, a petition Is before
County Courts of Coos and Curry coun
ties asking for an assessment of a
small mlilage. The Increase in tax
from this source will enable Road Dis
trict No. 1ft to pot the road In that dis.
trlct in the best possible condition.
When this road connects with the
Douglas County . road, completing the
stretch from Myrtle Point to Roseburg.
the perils of this stage route will be
forever gone. ,
"But how do you reach Bandon?" is
the question, after one has gotten as
far as the railroad will bring him. A
brief story of the means of transporta
tion along the Coquille River and the
number of passengers carried during
1912 will convince any doubtful mind
that Bandon has been reached and that
what so many have done anyone else
can do. -
' The Coos Bay & Eastern Railroad &
Navigation Company's line. extending
from Marshfield on Coos Bay to. Myr
tle Point, at the head of navigation of
the Coquille River, connects with steam
ers from the outside world ana carries
its passengers to Coquille, 20 miles from
Marshfield. At Coquille. connection Is
made with the Coquille River steamers
for Bandon. The distance from Co
quille to Bandon is 23 miles.
River Traffic Die.
-There are four freight and passenger
boats on the river two from Bandon
to Myrtle Point, and two only as far
as Coquille. There are two exclusive
passenger boats that make Bandon and
Coquille one two trips daily, the other
only one round trip.
The steamer Coquille makes two
round trips dally from Bandon to Co
quille.' She leaves Bandon at S A. M.
and 1 P. M. and leaves Coquille at 9:30
,A. M. and 3:30 P. M. She has a double
deck and lour compartments ior pas
sengers. The upper compartments are
equipped with Morris chairs, is electric
lighted and has many other conveni
ences of modern river travel. Her daily
average tor passengers, since the first
of June. 1912, since she began making
two trips a day, has been, until January
1st, about 100. Since June 1st she has
enabled 21,000 people to travel up and
down the river.v
The Wolverine Is another popular Co
quille River boat, of which O. R. Wil
lard is captain. His launch carried
13.000 passengers In 1912. This launch
has seen five years' service, making
regularly one round trip- daily. Next
May Captain Willard will put on an
other fast motor passenger boat that
for speed, safety and comfort Is ex
pected to eclipse anything now on the
river. This boat Is something entirely
new In the Northwest and will be close
ly watched by others engaged in the
passenger business on Oregon and
Washington rivers. The hull is 75 feet
in length by 11 feet beam. It has two
large compartments and accommoda
tion for 120 passengers. The boat's
power Is to be supplied by a 100-horse-power
Gorman engine and will be able
to turn the 45-lnch propeller 350 revo
