THE DAHiT COOS BAY TIMKS, MAR8UFIEIJ), OREGON, SUNDAY,
Pleasing Indeed to both the new
comer and the older residents of
Marshfield Is the sound of the many
hammers and saws that plan an un
interrupted song from morning till
night throughout the entire city.
Many are the dwellings that are un
der course of construction. If there Is
any one thing that Marshfield or the
bay In general needs above another
Jt Is places for newcomers to live.
Hundreds and hundreds of people
have come to this city In the past
six months with their mlnda fully
made up that they would settle here,
but have gone away, not because
they were not fully pleased with tho
resources of Coos Day, nor were dis
pleased with the people they met
here, but Just from the mere, yes,
all Important fact, that they were
absolutely unable to find a place to
live. Not only have these new peo
ple been unable to find a house In
which to reside but many and many
of them that came here with plenty
of money to build a home, were un
able to do bo because It was not even
possible to find a place to board un
til a residence could be erected.
One would get the impression now,
if he were to take a drive or walk
around the city, that the people had
finally been awakened to tho fact
that houses had to be built and at
once. They are In course of con
struction in every corner of the city,
out in the very edge, among the vir
gin timber, which Is only being re
moved enough to allow the buildings
to go up, and again in the heart of
the city where there is only room
between the residences already built
to place a dwelling.
In addition to the many residences
that are in course of construction
and many more that will be started
In the near future, there are several
business houses being erected and
some that will be commenced In the
Immediate future. Several that have
already been planned, such as the
two story brick bank building at the
corner of First and Broadway, the
new brick bank and office building
to be erected at the cprner of Front
and A street by Messers Flanagan
and Bennett, and the two Btory brick
building to be erected at the corner
of First and A street by Anson Rog
ers.have not been started yet, solely
on account of the fact that the new
brick plants that are under course
of construction are not yet ready to
produce tho material with which to
Not only will the buildings men
tioned be erected just as soon as the
brick plants are In operation, but
there will be many more that will be
commenced in the near future when
brick making becomes a reality on

Eighteen residences nre now
under construction in Marsh-
dream as it has been In the past.
Mr. Grimes, a capitalist of Guthrie,
Oklahoma, who is heavily interested
on the bay and who will be In the
city in a short while, will probably
erect a. fine brick business house
on First street directly opposite the
Times building. He is one of many
that will do this during the coming
Among the many buildings that
are under course of construction at
present and will bo completed soon
the following may be mentioned:
E. C. Going building on Front
street, which has been mentioned In
these columns several times, is fast
nearlng completion and will, when
finished, be one of the finest build
ings for Its purpose in the city. Mr.
Going will have It stocked with the
best and most complete line of fur
niture to be found on the bay in the
very near future.
Eugene O'Connell has recently let
the contract for the erection of a
fine, large two story business block
to be erected at the corner of A and
Second streets.on which active work
will begin at once. This building
represents an outlay of several thous
and dollars and will undoubtedly be
a great credit not only to this city
at the present time but for years to
come, as Mr. O'Connell is known to
be a man who never does things by
Croup, La Grippe, Asthma,
halves, but does them In the best
possible manner at all times.
The business house being built by
Gow Why on First street will bo
ready for occupancy In the near
future and will be in use just as soon
as it Is possible to get it sufficiently
completed to allow a business firm
to move in. The second floor of this
building will be used for living pur
poses. The firm of Stewart and Mitchell
has but recently finished the erection
of a fine business house, the lower
floor of which is being used by the
firm In which to carry on their rapid
ly increasing business, which made
it necessary for the construction of
the building, while the second floor
Is being used as a dwolllng.
F. A. Sacchl's new store building
Is all complete now and is occupied
with the exception of one of the store
rooms on the first floor which will
soon be housing one of the tailor
firms of the city. The second floor
of this building is occupied by fami
lies. The Johnson building recently
erected Is occupied, the second floor
by families and the first floor by two
In addition to the business houses
above mentioned there are a great
many dwellings in course of construc
tion among which the following have
Wilson and Thomas have the con
tract for the erection of three cot
tages at the corner of Washington
and Sheridan, for D. L. Rood. One
is partly built now. Work has been
suspended on account of a lack of
lumber. Mr. Rood is furnishing the
lumber which he Is having shipped
In from the Coqullle valley.
The cottages are one and a half
stories high containing about five to
six rooms and will be modern. The
contract calls for their completion
not later than the first of June. They
are to be rented when finished.
One Is Ready.
James Baines has one of the four
residences he is having built on Sher
idan, about finished. Wilson and
Thomas are contractors for these
dwellings. The one now in course of
construction is a Btory and a half,
seven room modern dwelling, with
a basement under the entire build
ing. It will cost about $1,250 and
will be for rent when finished. Had
It not been for the trouble In getting
lumber, Mr. Wilson states, the resi
dence would be almost completed at
this time. -
The rest of the lot of houses will
be built just as soon as the contract
ors can get at It.
F. C. Birch hab let the contract
for a nice dwelling, to cost in the
neighborhood of $6,000. It will be
erected at once. The building will
be a five room cottage, modern In
every particular, and will be put up
In the best possible manner. The
floors and walls will be double, and
Instead of the ordinary Interior fin
ish, it will be plastered. This is sel
dom done in the building of houses
on the bay, but Mr. Birch is of the
