tor Boats of Ranchers.
FLORENCE, Or, Feb. 8. (Special.)
I Representing the people living along
the North Fork of the Siuslaw River,
four delegates from that seetlon were
present at the meeting of the local
Port Commission Wednesday to ask
an appropriation of 500 for clearing
out snags and dredging sand bars
which interfere with navigation along
. In the past, it baa only been pos
sible for most of the launches owned
In that section to come to town when
tides were most favorable, and as the
North Fork is one of the most thickly
settled and prosperous dairying sec
tions of the Siuslaw Valley, the resi
dents felt they were entitled to con
sideration at the hands of the Port
An appropriation of $300 was al
lowed them, and the remaining $200
needed for the work will be raised
locally. A dredge is on the ground,
doing work for local dairymen, and the
work of rendering the stream more
navigable will commence at once. Xo
regular passenger boats travel the
North Fork, as over a dozen of the
residents own launches, in which they
travel to and from town.

FAIR TO BE JhlELD BY POLK
Association Now Is Working In Or

DALLAS, Or, Feb. 8. (Special.) The
Polk County Fair Is to be an annual
event. The fair association, recently
organized, is now working to secure
grounds for a permanent exhibit build
ing. The City of Dallas has been asked
to donate the City Park as a site for
the new fair grounds.
Arrangements will be made to pur
chase some additional ground upon
which will be constructed a race track
and ball park. The chances of having
a west aide league the coming year is
stimulating interest in the building of
a ball park. At a meeting of the base
ball enthusiasts of Dallas. McMlnn
vllle, Sheridan and Hlllsboro, held at
Mi-Mlnnvllle last night, tempqrary
plans for the new league were made,
and It Is believed that a fast alx-team
league will be the result of the meet

Engineer Ignorant of Railroad's
Change of Ownership.
VALE. Or, Feb. 8. (Special.) Not
long since, Robert Bacon, a former
locomotive engineer on the Oregon
Eastern between Vale and the big tun
nel, found his engine slightly disabled
and took it to Boise for repairs. While
lie was away the Oregon Eastern was
turned over to the O.-W. R. a N. Com
pany and all the Oregon Short Line
Bacon was none the wiser, however.
When be returned to Vale he had no
sooner brought his engine to a stop In
the local yards than an O.-W. R. & N.
engineer climbed Into the cab. In an
swer to Bacon's question the new engl
neer said he was going to take charge
as ordered. Bacon resented the intru
sion and a flstflght ensued, In which
the combatants threw each other off
the engine three or four times before
the matter was finally explained.
BANDON, Or., Feb. 8. (Special.)
The spirit of enterprise so evident
n Dnndnn timer falls to elicit re
marks of praise from those who visit
this town. The business streets are
dotted with traders from early morn

end of the week to the other.

practically Inexhaustible forests of

the past two years shipments have
doubled. At present there are 18 oce
anio boats that call regularly at Ban
don wharves for their cargoes. Seven
of these are freight and passenger
steamers, ana some are ran
which are only freighters. The follow
ing data give a concrete idea of the
business transacted by merchant ma
rine. This gives the total amount of

over the Bandon bar for 1912.

The four lumber mills of Bandon
have been overhauled and have added
to their equipment tnis year, two ui
them having doubled. Two new timber
camps have been opened, one eight-mile
logging road has been built. This is
the road upon which the train was
wrecked last November, resulting fa
tally to six men.
A box factory has been erected with
capital stock of $10,000 and with ca
pacity of 10.000 feet. This factory will
add much to the pay roll of the town.
The Bandon Power Company has
made extensive improvement in the
eleotrlo service by building a new plant
and furnishing night and day current;
$200,000 was paid to the Cotfullle Val
ley dairymen for milk and cream; $16,
000 worth of platinum was extracted
from the mines near Bandon. Oil wells
have been developed to a paying prop
osition. Coal lands have been purchase
wtlh the immediate intention of the
buyers to open them. The woolen mills
have been weaving night and day witl
more orders on file than they can fill.
These few facts represent the grow
ing commercial life of Bandon and may
be emphaslxed by a few notations as
to the number of people who are at
tracted to the place.
