common remark wo hear, that "the
chances fifty years ago are gone.''
It is true that they are gone gone
as surely as the tallow candle and
the stage coach. But as the electric
light and steam car usurped the
places of the candle and stage so
has the nineteenth century eradicat
ed the "chances" of fifty years ago.
The world today crys for young
men young men with clear heads,
clean minds, clean bodies young
men who say they will and will. For
these the opportunities of today are
so rich, so golden that those of yes
terday in comparison are Insignificant.
The week that is just commencing
should mark an epoch in the public
enterprise of Marshfield and Coos
Bay. Through the efforts of one of
our live local fraternal associations
we are given the honor of entertain

growing and prosperous state. Gov-, hatchery were devoured b, the dolIy

DESTKOYIXG YOUNG SALMON
The JIcKenzle fish hatchery has
come in for a great deal of newspa
per notoriety recently because of a
newspaper article written by former
State Deputy Fish "Warden Webster.
The article stated that thousands of
young salmon fry liberated from the
Sffir gon, and the history of two success
ful political campaigns tells the story
of his host of political supporters who
irrespective of their fixed party loyal
ty, believe In the man and his meth
ods. The secret of the governor's
popularity lies, in a great part, In the
fact that he himself Is an earnest be
liever in, and a zealous advocate for
the larger development of our state's
xesources. In him we find reflected
the composite desire of all our people
to make Oregon all that is fair,
lovely, gifted and substantial among
, the states of the union.
It is therpfore not strange that
Governor Chamberlain should find a
congenial travelling companion in
Tom Richardson, who, while occupy
ing no official position, is neverthe
less a public man in the highest and
.most accepted use of that term.
Tom Richardson has been selected
by the Portland Chamber of Com
merce, with whom all the aililiated
commercial organizations of the state '
co-operate, to take charge of, plan,
and deviso all the details which are
necessary to the work of exploiting
and developing the Inexhaustiblo re
sources of the state of Oregon. It U
Ills business to catch, hold, concen
trate and utilize all that tho head and
heart of tho enthusiast-dreamer and
optimist can conceive and dlctato for
tho upbuilding of a great common
wealth. There is no publicity man In
tho country who better satisfies tho
demands of an ambitious people for
work along these lines than Tom
Illchnrdson. Governor Chamberlain
and Tom Richardson will bo with us
during the coming week.
They will gladly welcome tho op
portunity to say or do anything that
will materially advanco the develop
ment of Coos Bay, for Coos Bay is a
part of Oregon and they claim the
wholo state as their necessary field
of endeavor. But tho peoplo of Coos
Bay must not bo content to accept all
and glvo nothing In return. Tho re
ception to bo accorded them must bo
of such a nature as will instantly Im
press them with our faith, enthusi
asm and sincerity of Coos Bay, and
cnuso them to spread tho gospel of
our good works to tho uttermost ends
of tho world.
varden and white fish. A" personal
Investigation by Master State Fish
Warden Van Dusen has brought to
light that the fish claimed to have
been found in the stomachs of these
fish must have been dead fry that
were thrown from the hatcheries.
Letters and affidavits which Mr. Van
Dusen is in receipt of from employes
of the McKenzle hatchery are to the
effect that the dolly varden and
white fish do. not destroy young
salmon fry. The matter has called
forth much newspaper discussion
and now that It Is apparently proven
that the young fish from the hatch
eries are not being destroyed as was
feared sportsmen and others will

Polk' county citizens are showing
their indomitable determination to
come In for some of the' rich timber
holdings of the Southern Pacific In
that county should the result of the
attorney general's Investigation
prove adverse to the railroad com
pany. Over 200 locators have posted
nptlces on quarter sections in an
ticipation of a reversion of the land
to the government. The people of
Polk county are evidently going to
save Uncle Sam the responsibility of
having any surplus land on his
BAKER VALLEY ENTERPRISE
In the country contiguous to Bak

Is being put under Irrigation. Here
tofore the land has produced nothing
but an abundance of sage brush and
a quality of grass. Under Irrigation
the land will produce wheat, oats,
barley, potatoes and fruits of all
kinds. The reclaiming of this im
mense area of worthless land Into
a rich productive promising country
speaks highly for the enterprising
spirit of our neighboring city and

A Paragraph History of Coos
County Told From Time To
Port Orford was tho first place
settled In Coos county, now Curry
county. Discovered by Don Martin
D'Aguilor while sailing along the
coast In 1795. It was later named
by Captain George Vancouver who
made the first scientific and system
atic examination of the northwest
coast of America. Inhabitants at
that time are described as very
honest Indians, undersized in stat
ure, long black hair, and dressed in
garments made from the skins of
otter, bear, deer and fox. Vancouv
er named Port Orford in honor of a
friend, an English earl.
Captain "William Tlchenor, one of
early navigators of the waters of the
coast by steamship, in 1850 made
the first regular stop at Port Orford.
Freight was then $60 to ?80 per ton.
Passage to Portland sold for $80.
Coal sold for $60 a ton. Seamen
were paid from ?60to$100a month.
