tho citizens of Marshfleld and North
Bend desire to advance the interests
of Coos Bay let them Join the Cham

duty of every citizen on C003 Bay.
If you believe the peninsula of
Coos Bay will some day attain rank
as a seaport of the Pacific; If you
believe that we will ultimately have
a metropolis here, demonstrate that
belief by giving your membership to
tho Chamber of Commerce. Co-operate
with it. Att9nd every meeting.

THE Chamber of Commerce organ
izations on Coos Bay should be
supported by every citizen. On the
membership list should be found the
names of every man In the com
munity who has the welfare of the
Bay at heart. Organizations of this
nature are purely creatures of the
citizens, dependent on them for sup
port. No matter what the amount
of money behind the organization, no
matter the efforts that may be made
by those belonging to them, If they

said: A house devlded against Itself
cannot stand." The axiom is more
applicable to municipal bodies than
to nations, for the former lacks the
reserve strength of the latter.
The chief aim of a Chamber of
Commerco is to forwarc. the inter
ests of the community It represents.
It is a sort of mouthpiece between
the masses and the municipal law
makers the city council. Each
member has equal chance to express
his views regarding matters affect
ing the city. Many times when mat

community como up the city coun

THE new truant law may require
some strenuous work on the
part of tho truant officers and the
teachers may have some unpleasant
experiences in attempting to have
the law enforced. Already one of
these experiences has come to light
and reached tho office of the State
Superintendent of Public Instruction.
It comes from one of the eastern
Oregon counties and the communi
cation was written by the county
superintendent. After explaining the
cause at some length he says:
"Threo children are near or in
their teens, but have never been to
school more than a few days at a
time in their lives. The parents
have got mad at every teacher and
taken the children out near the be
ginning of the term. None of them
so much as 'know their letters' In
the words of their neighbors. I am
going to exhaust every peaceable and
moral means before resorting to the
legal, but as the mother has threat
ened to scratch out the teacher's
eyes, etc., they may fall."
Tho new law requires that chil
dren between the age of nine and
fourteen years of age and every child
between the ages of fourteen and
sixteen years of age not regularly
engaged in any useful employment
shall attend for the whole period of
school mouths held annually in the
district in which they reside.
For tho enforcement of the law
tho district boundary board, consist
ing of the county superintendent and
the county court, shall in districts
of tho second and third clas3 ap
point a truant officer, who shall be
allowed a salary not to exceed $2 per
day for actual service. In districts
of the first class the boards may ap-
ELECTRIO LINE FRANCHISE.
CLEVELAND, Ohio, Is at present
engaged In a controversy with
tho local street railway, and the
points raised will prove interesting
to Coos Bay people generally, for
tho case Illustrates to a marked de
gree the value which a franchise of
this kind attains.
The company offers to surrender
all its rights under existing fran
chises and accept In return a new
grant under which the people could
have tho Immediate beneilt of seven
tickets fo'r 25 cents, and practically
universal transfers. In the reduced
rates on tickets it Is estimated there
would bo a saving to the people of
$1,000,000 a year, and the extended
transfer privilege would certainly be
valuable. The company also prom
ises to build Immediately all needed
extensions, including additional
crosstown lines, which are being de
manded. It asks that a definite date be fixed
for the expiration of all franchises,
tho life of the new grant to be only
20 years, or an average extension of
present grants of less than 14 years.
An offer is also made to give the city
tho right' to purchase, own and oper
ate the street railway system at the
expiration of the grant.
During the life of the franchise,
however, the company wants exclu
sive rights. It says: "It is readily
apparent that any disturbance of the
system as a whole or the establish
ment of other lines Independent of
the present system will work endless
confusion, inconvenience and hard
ship to thousands of people."
The offer of seven tickets for 25
cents is one that will appeal to the
public everywhere. It means 3
cents a ride Instead of 5 cents, and
for those who have much riding to do
this would in a year be a very con
marked degree tho intellectual plane
of the communities on Coos Bay.
Tho prestige gained by showings of
this nature revert In more good to
Coos Bay than many dollars expend
ed in advertising. ,
Meeting of Committee Will Re Held
to Formulate Plans State
I. S. Smith, chairman of the Lib
rary Committee, stated yesterday
that a meeting of tho committee
would be held the coming week to
attend to some business matters of
Importance. Since the Inst meeting,
somo weeks ngo, the committee has
been engaged In securing data and
literature regarding the establish
ment of a public library. Mis3 Mar
vin, tho State Librarian, has written
of her intention to visit Marshfleld
some time In 'August. At that time
It is hoped to have enough money
raised to organize a llbrr.ry associa
tion. With the exception of tho first
few days, the committee has not cir
culated tho subscription list. Dur
ing that campaign tho s.um of $1,150
was raised. This sum is to be in
creased to at least $3,000.
