Engineers on tho gasoltne schooner
Berwick, Captain Jacobson, walkoO
ashore Saturday morning as soon as
tho craft had made fast at the dock
of the Independence Coal company
at Portland. On her formor trip me
men in the engine-room qua nnd she
tad to remain in port about a week
waiting for the vacancies to be lllled.
It is feared that she will be put to
a long delay on this occasion before
other men can be employed.
"It Is hard to get engineers who
know how to operate the gasoline
plant on the Berwick," said Caplnin
Jacobson. "I have oqnrlmcntJd
with a number of llcensd men and
they have failed to ?ive anything
like satisfaction. Tho ordliinry en
gineer does not know much about n.
One of the great complaints found
Vflth the Berwick Is that she is slow. !

What bordered on a tragedy oc
curred on MarBhfleld's water front
when Mr. Barkelcna, commonly
known as "Buskle," stepped through
a hole in Smith's floating wharf north
of the coal bunkers and sayed him
self from a watery grave only by
holding on to the edge of the boards
with his fingers while his body with
the exception of his head was en
tirely submerged in the water.
"Buskle" is a rancher living up
Catching slough, and came to Marsh
field Sunday with the full intention
of cornering the whisky supply. He
was very groggy when he attempted
to walk across the floating dock to
where his boat was tied. The hole
he fell through was about three feet
square, and had been made for a pile.
"Buskle" did not see the hole, and
was precipitated Into the cool waters
of the bay so abruptly that he is said
to have been completely sobered.
When he came In contact with the
water he began to yell, and his shouts
attracted the attention of L. C.
Darkee and Joe Lapp, who Immedi
ately ran to the scene and extricated
the man from his perilous position.
Marshal Carter took him in tow and
piloted him to the Nutwood saloon,
where he was dried out.

PORTLAND, pREG ON.
Speaks Highly of the Cc-Opcmtlon
Which Met the Efforts Made
Orvllle Dodge, editor of the Co
qullle Valley Sentinel, and who has
been in Washington since the latter
part of last November, has arrived
on Coos Bay on his way home.
Mr. Dodge In an Interview yester
day spoke highly of the co-operation
given himself and Peter Loggle by
Oregon's representatives in Washing
ton. All with whom they came in
contact seemed to realize that tho
Coos Bay country, 3,000 miles away,
In sending representatives to Wash
ington, had Interests worthy of co
operative measures, and acted ac
cordingly. Mr. Dodge will attend a
meeting of the North Bend Chamber
of Commerce in the near future, and
with Mr. Loggle will tell the mem
bers of the work accomplished while
Mr. Dodgo has been detained
some weeks by the trial of Binger
Hermann, for which he was sub
poenaed as a witness. He states that
the popular sentiment In Washington
Is with Hermann, and that there is a
feeling that ho Is being persecuted.
Say Thirty Miles of Line Will Be
Built Before Summer Ends.
That the citizens of Roseburg do
things when they start, is evidenced
by the fact that the committee of
five appointed In that city a short
time ago has raised $100,000 for tho
new electric road which It Is pro
posed to build between Coos Bay and
Roseburg. The committee raised
$60,000 among six men In Roseburg,
and were assured of tho balance of
the $100,000 yesterday.
The plan of the committee is to
come to Marshfleld In a few days and
meet the committees from Marsh
fleld, North Bend, Myrtle Point,' Ban-
don and Coqullle, at which time ac-j
tive steps will be taken In shaping
the course of the progress to be
made. The people of Roseburg state
that thirty miles of the electric line
can be constructed from that end be
fore the season closes.
