Hrief History of the Club.
The Chaminade Quartette was
organized three years ago with a
membership of nine, Mrs. E. K.
Sheldon and Miss Leona Shaw being
chosen to fill tho offices of president
and director respectively. During
the season the woixs of the follow
ing, composers was taken up: Bach,
Handel, Hayden, Mozart, Beethoven
and Schubert. There was no con
cert during the season, although two
recitals had been held at the home
of Mrs. Wlllfam Horsfall, Jr. At
these events a few invited guests
The following year Mrs. Sheldon
was again president and Miss Shaw
was reelected director,. This year
the following composers' works were
taken up; Mendelssohn, Schumann,
Copln, Lisztr Wagner and Cecllo
Chaminade, after whom the club ls
named.' Ceclle Chaminade is of
French birth, and an exceptional
pianist, and conceded the best "wo

HARBOR IS BASIS

the Site for Oregon's Coining
In the columns of thc Times in the
issue of Wednesday, May 22, there
was printed an article relating to
the dredging of Coos Bay for a chan
nel 800 feet wide. The article was
written because of action taken by
local men with a view toward secur
ing a dredge to do the work. Fol
lowing is a letter received fioni C.
A. Smith, who Is building a 250,000
foot saw mill on tho bay, relative
to the action. Il also shows the
deep faith which ho has in the fu
ture of Coos Bay.
Editor Coos Bay Times,
Coos Bay, Ore.
Dear Sir: I have read with a great
deal of interest your article regard
ing the deepening of the harbor and
tho actions taken by your leading
business men. I am very much
pleased to note the great Interest
taken by your cities on tho Bay in
regard to this matter. Your harbor
is the foundation upon which cities
will be built up, so that improve
ment is the first essential necessary
to the building of cities on Coos Bay.
You certainly have the possibilities
of a splendid harbor. Let every
body pull together for Its improve
ment, realizing Its possibilities for
the best harbor between Golden Gate
and the Sound, and railroads will
come there and cities will bo built
and the time will come when the
biggest city in the State of Oregon
will be located on Coos Bay. I real
ize that people will smile at such a
statement, but with the harbor, the
coa and with the timber resources, I
do not hesitate to make this predic
tion. Permit me to thank you for your
article -in question, and to urge you
to always keep this most exceedingly
important subject before the read
ers. Yours truly,
C. A. SMITH.
