FRITZ KRKISI.ER, VOTJSDEn ARTIST, WHO WILL BE FIUST
SICAL ATTKACTIO.V OK SEASON 1 hURTLASl).
LOIS STEERS, of Lois Steera-Wynn
Coman. returned last week from a
vacation In Eastern Washington,
and Immediately took up plans for tbe
opening- of the 1915-16 music season
In Portland. The opening- date has not
yet been fixed, but the artist has been
chosen. He is Fritz Krei6ler. the emi
nent violinist, who has but recently
arrived from the battlefield In Europe,
where he was injured. v
The coming- of Kreisler has a roman
tic atmosphere about it that Miss Steers
has discovered. Many who know of
Krelsler's art with his yiolin were
stunned when the news- trickled from,
the European battlefield that he had
been injured. All wondered if his mu
siclanly capabilities had been disturbed
by his wounds. He had given up his
career when it was most brilliant to
serve his country, but his injuries
eventually made him less a soldier and
more a musician, the satisfaction
which tempered the news of. his mis
fortune in the war zone.
Kreisler has the soul of an artist,
and therefore the experience in the
war has lent color and even more feel
ing to his sensitive nature.
Kreisler is an artist who does not
believe that, being one, he should not
risk his life in war. He sought to
return to the front after his wounds
had healed, but some more sober coun
sel stayed him. Kreisler was in reality
permanently disabled as a soldier, but
fortunately not disabled as a musician.
The devastating weeks on the battle
field and his subsequent personal ex
perience have left his art nobler, finer
and more poignant than It was a year
ago. according to authorities who
Miss Steers expects to announce the
opening date for Kreisler within a few
days. For the season as a whole she
promises an inviting array of talent

Mr. Wood on a store. On introduc
ing himself they discovered that they

or heard of each other for 12 years.
While the reunited cousins were

Annual Shipments From Bandon and Myrtle Point Also Are Heavy, WhHe
Ocean Commerce Likewise Is Extensive.

B,ANDON. Or., Aug. 21 (Special.)
' The Coquille River Is the scene of
a bustlins commerce. - The river
Is navigable as far up as Myrtle Point
a distance of 30 miles." This water
way thus serves three important towns
Bandon, Coquille and Myrtle Point.
Along the river are canneries,- mills,
coal chutes, truck and dairy farms and
cheese factories, which furnish abun
dant sources of freight.
The craft are many and varied.
There are dozens of rowboats, some
thing like 50 small gasoline boats and
11 large boats devoted exclusively to
river commerce. The Myrtle Point
Transportation Company operates the
Dora, Pronto, May, -Maple and Myrtle.
The Farmers' Transportation Company
operates the Dispatch.' a large stern
wheeler, the Norma an4 the Telegraph.
The Coquille River Transportation
Company operates the Coquille the
Charm and the Favorite. The. Wolver
ine, which has been Inactive for two
years, will be operated Independently
by Captain Willard. Several of these
boaxa a,vft sassensex capacity oX
200 people. . The jitney lines between
Bandon and Coquille are finding- an
active competition among the river
plying boats. . .
The ocean commerce is likewise ex
tensive. The ships plying between
Portland and the Coquille River are
the Tillamook, Rustier and Roamer.
Those between San Francisco and the
Coquille River are the Brooklyn. Eliz
abeth, Speedwell, Bandon. Acme aad
Phoenix. These ships,have an aggre
gate carrying capacity iof 2200 tons.
The following figures show the aver
age annual shipments out of the Co
quille River: Lumber, 87.586.800 feet;
ties. 5.685.000; piling. 3421 pieces: 6019
poles; shingles, 5.325,000; matchwood,
563 cords; splints. 2967 bundles; slices.
9996 bundles, shakes, 223.000; coal. 803
tons; salmon, 4057 cases; miscellaneous
freight, 2378 tons; passengers. 2399.
Coming- into the Coquille River an
average year shows 2224 passengers
and -17.884 tons of freight The rest of
the trade Is decidedly in favor of the
Coquille River ports.
Approximately T000 people are served
