ing the afternoon, In order to be in
readiness for the evening program.
As Governor Chamberlain has a host
of personal friends on Coos Bay, It
is thought his time will be well
taken up during the afternoon with
a sort of Informal reception.
The program at the Masonic opera
house In the evening has been ar
ranged to the most minute detail,
and those attending will be given a
rare treat that will be remembered
for years to come. The most promi
nent men of the Coos Bay country
are on the program which will be
given at the governor's reception.
Mayor E. E. Straw will give tho ad
dress of welcome, and the response
will of course be made by the chief
executive. Tom Richardson will
speak, as only ho can, on "The De
velopment of Oregon."
George E. Steele will speak on
"Oregon; Its Place In History."
Mayor L. J. Simpson will dwell on
the subject nearer to the hearts of
Coos Bay people Mian anything else,
"Coos Bay, Oregon's Greatest Har
bor." Major L. D. Kinney will talk
on "The Electric Itoad," and Judge
A. S. Hammond of Coqullle will
speak on the resources and advan
tages of Coos' county seat. Attorney
J. W. Bennett will speak on "Forty
Feet on the Bar." "Redmanship"
will be explained by George N. Farrin

resented by George H. Guerln, and

sources." J. M. Upton will speak
on one of the most vital matters af
fecting Coos Bay, "The Need of Bet
ter Transportation Between Coos Bay
and Portland." Last on the pro
gram and no doubt for the reason
that Governor Chamberlain will have
more cause to remember the occa
sion, Judge Guerry will toast to the
"New City, Greater Coos Bay."
Fully 500 people are expected to
come up on the specially chartered
train which will bring the Redmen
from Myrtle Point, Coqullle and Ban

Governor Chamberlain Was Then
Taken To a Clam bake on the
ENJOYS VISIT HERE
Appreciates Efforts of Coos Bay
People Urief Sketch of the
Governor Chamberlain's last visit
to Coos Bay was two years ago, at
which time he was the guest of tho
Democratic club. He was also en
tertained on the beach at a clam
bake. It Is said the governor always
looks forward with keen anticipation
to his visits here, as the people spare
no pains to make his stay one of en
joyment. That Governor Chamberlain is uni
versally popular over tho entire state
was fully attested last June, when he
was re-elected to serve his second
term as chief executive of Oregon.
Up to a few years ago George E.
Chamberlain was practically un
known. He was engaged In practic
ing law in Albany, and also served
as district attorney. He left that
city to go to Portland, and two years
prior to his first election to tho gov
ernor's chair he was elected district
attorney for Multnomah county. His
rise into popularity since that time
Is too well known to need recording.
Few men run the gamut of public
life and succeed In keeping as popu
lar with the people as has Chamber
lain. Ed. RIggs, C. E. Drews, A. B. Daley,

TO NORTH BEND
Itinerary Will Not Permit Of Gov-
ernor Chamberlain Being
In Both Cities.
WILL LEAVE SATURDAY
Will Spend Several Days on Rogue
River Visiting With R.
Though North Bend will not havo
a formal program on this occasion,
the citizens will have ample oppor
tunity to show their kindly feeling
for him in the near future. Gover
nor Chamberlain, In company with
George Steele, state treasurer, and
the state fish warden, who is accom
panying him, will probably leave for
the Rogue river on Saturday morn
ing. R. D. Hume will entertain tbe
governor for several days, and show
him the workings of the fisheries..
R. D. Hume wired that he would
make arrangements for taking care
of the governor, and the party Is
expected to leave here early Satur
day morning. The round trip to
Gold Beach will consume about six
or seven days, and the party will
probably make a ihree days' visit.
This will place the date of the gov
ernor's return to Coos Bay about
May 28. On that occasion he will be
the guest of the city of North Bend.
Mayor Simpson stated Wednesday
night that a half holiday would be
declared In North Bend on tho day
of the chief executive's reception.
Plans will be formulated Immediate
ly, and everything will be In readi
ness for the event. It Is now thought
that among the features of the day's
program will be a reception at the
commercial club. Nothing definite
has been decided upon.
