The C. A. Smith company is start
ing out to do things In the right way.
The concern is such a large one that
local conditions do not meet the de
mand, s it Is necessary to create
conditions, which the company Is do
ing. Tho plans Tor the new offlce
building, on which work will be
started at once, arc most exten
sive. The building will have in it
bedrooms for the use of tho office
men, and dining room and kitchen !
where meals will be served as well ,
as apartments for guests who visit
tho firm. bn account of the lack of i
hotel accommodations tho company '
will in this way be prepared to hand
somely entertain their business visit
ors. In the office building will bo
billiard rooms and other places of
recreation for tho force. Houses are
being erected for tho mill workmen,
who must have places to live. The
accommodations in the way of
houses and rooms are lacking, so the
company creates them, realizing that
the conditions must be met. Besides,
tho company provides for the pleas
ure and recreation of tho nen, as
well as for their work, on tho ground
that men well satisfied and comfort
ablo will bo permanent employes and
will do better work. '
Tho building of houses for the men
lias not been tho plan of the C. A.
Smith company In the east, where
tho men could find their own quar
ters. The company stays strictly to
tho lumber business, but hero tho
providing of houses was necessary,
so It was done.
In this, as throughout all the
plans of the company, conditions
which are demanded by so large an
establishment and are not forthcom
ing, are made. The effect of this
upon the community will be greater
than Is realized. The company will
make a good many things at Marsh
fleld, and when the work Is com
pleted and the plant in full operation
there will be an organization which
Is a community in itself a unit.

Orvir Dodge is to be given a ban
quet at Coqullle when he returns
frpm Washington soon. The affair
Is being arranged by the members of
the Progressive club of Coqullle. The
welcome planned for Mr. Dodge is
well deserved. In representing Co
qullle and Bandon in the Interests of
Improving tho Coqullle river Mr.
Dodge succeeded in getting the ap
propriation he went after, and he
also did all he could for Coos Bay
and the country In general. It is not
amiss to recognize public services
rendered, and men who do things for
the community in general should re
ceive the public appreciation in the
measure of their services. If they
are only small, they count Just that
much. Mr. Dodge's services, how
ever, were of a highly beneficial nature.
Lumbermen of Willamette Valley
Appeal to State Railroad Com
mission for Relief.
Because of Freight Clinrges Made
by Southern Pacific to Snn
MIGHT HAVE ONE HERE.
Speaking of tho Progressive club
of Coqullle, It may be said that it is
a worthy Institution. The members
are banded together for the purpose
of Improving and beautifying their
city. They have already done much
In this line, and have brought about
oeveral specific Improvements in
their city. The plan Is one which
might well be Imitated In Marshfleld.
These organizations exist in many
cities throughout the country, and
have done much good. Most of the
people nre busy with business or the
necessary and more general improve
ments, so that a society with the
beautifying of the city at heart can
accomplish much In the way of sug
gestion and actual work.
The Albany Democrat, of Albany,
Ore., has published a special edition
which Is quite creditable to the city.
It tells all about Albany and Linn
county, giving accounts of the re
sources and Industries. Handsome
half-tones Illustrate the edition.
Portland, April 24. A special to
the Oregonian from Salem says the
state railroad commission held a
hearing into the justness of the com
plaint made by the Willamette Valley
lumbermen that the rate on lumber
of $5 per thousand, recently put Into
effect by the Southern Pacific be
tween valley points and San Fran
cisco is prohibitive. The complain
ants say their orders have been
placed under the old rate of $3.10 a
thousand and they are mortally
bound to keep the contracts. They
also contend that although situated
on the Willamette river the present
rate to Portland is so high they can
not ship to that port and thence to
San Francisco by water and compete
with Portland mills. The railroad
on the other hand asserts that it can
not do business at the $3.10 rate as
it Is compelled In a great majority
of Instances to haul cars north from
San Francisco unloaded. The rail
road men said further that they pre
fer not to carry any lumber whatever
as tho cars cannot be had in quanti
ties sufficient to sumily the demands
of more profitable traffic.
The commission will not render a
decision In the matter until the evi
dence Is fully considered. In case
the lumbermen are upheld and the
presented Is deemed sufficient to
warrant it, an appeal will be taken
to the Interstate commerce commis
sion. It developed after the com
mission adjourned that up tho river
mills plan, in case railroads do not
reduce the rafes, to put Into opera
tion large barges between their mills
and Portland. They helleve In that
way they will force the roads to come
to their terms.

g better. Men's cioining,
ready to put on and wear the
minute you've picked out something
that's becoming to you, is being im
proved in every way faster than any
thing that's designed by brains and
made by hands.
It wasn't so very long ago that virtu
ally everything our ancesters wore was
spun and woven and mado up into gar
ments at home. Then, for a few de
cades, the tailor had his reign. Now,
genius and organization have worked
out a commercial levolution and men
can dress better in ready-to-wear clothes
than they could diess even a dozen years
ago in cust,om-niado garments a great
You can get a better fit, better fabrics,
better tailoring and immeasurably better

all this for less money oven though the
cost of almost all the necessaries of life

before tho amazing changes were wrought
Wo went into the market early this
year determined to examino all the of
ferings of all tho notablo makers and to
buy, after careful comparisons, tho best
lino of men's clothes that was offered

There is no doubt, there are no "ifs,"
no "huts" about it. We got the best
clothing that was on the market and
we want to say right here that the best

We bought the famous Stein-Bloch
and Kirschbaum clothing. They were
in the lead and we were on hand early
enough to get control of the line in this
community. It means a good deal to us.
It means that we can show you more
style, better fabrics, better wearing suits,
better fitting suits than any merchant
who had to take one of the lines we re
fused to buy and, as wo said, we took
a long, careful look at practically every
thing that was offered. It means, too,
that we can offer you values which you
can't duplicate in this section.
Now we'd like to have you come in
and look at our offerings. We'd like to
h'ave you try on a suit that was mado to
fit a man of your size. We'd like to
havo you step in front of tho mirror
and see how it looks on you.
We want to tell you that we won't let
you walk out of the store with a gar
ment that doesn't fit you or that isn't
becoming to you.
For men of all sizes, ages and com
plexions wo have the right kind of suit
and tho right kind of light overcoat.
