Marshfield at Coquille.
North Bend at Bandon.
Independents vs. Smith Team.
Marshfield will Journey over to tho
county seat today and make a bis
bluff at winning from the Coquille
team. The Marshfield aggregation
feel a sense of strength, though they
aro crippled by the absence of two
regular players, McKeown and Lam
berton. There Is a belief among the
nlno that Marshfield is certain to win
from Coquille, since the Coquille
team in the past has been as badly
hoodooed when she meets this team
as Marshfield is when she butts up
against North Bend- This is good.,
argument, for it has been proven
times without number in more than
one section of the country.
, For exampje, w,o need not make
the rule applicable to the smaller and
less experienced teams. Last fall
tho Chicago Nationals were beaten so
badly they scarcely knew thoy had
been engaged In playing ball when
the Chicago Americans galloped away
with the world's championship. It
was conceded on all sides that the
Nationals were superior In nearly
every position, yet the Americans
took the series with ease. Marsh
field's team is not making excuses
because they are short regular play
ers, and Bert Dimmck, who will offi
ciate as captain today, is confident he
has a team that can bring home a
Marshfield Is anxious to win this
game, as they are now third in the
pennant race. Should this occur,
IVr percentage will be .600, while
I quillo will bo pushed down the
iale to .500 and third place. It
Itay be Idle to figure what will hap
pen at Bandon, where tho North
Bend team will play, yet strange
things happen in Coos Bay baseball;
so Captain Lyons, of tho North Bend
team, informs tho Times. It may be
a surprise will bo sprung on tho un
suspecting bunch from the manufac
turing city. This Bandon town Is
said to bo pretty wise when It comes
to the national game, and hai been
known to lay for a big clean-up all
season. For this reason, Captain
Lyons is throwing no bouquets at
.htfailf over tho prospects of wln
Ifws today's game.
Should tho unlooked-for happen,
ihea Marshfield would occupy first
place. But it is a far cry, and would
take a vivid imagination to lead one
to such a hope. Marshfield will bo
doing well If sho takes Coquille Into
camp, and will be satisfied to see
North Bend skin tho Beachltes. for
Marshfield will havo tho next seanco
with them and will trounco them,
while Coqulllo Is chasing North Bead
towards the pit.

the tracks so deep that trafilc could
not be sent through.

aid traffic considerably. The cut

The sailors are aboard the schooners
Salvator and Northwest, which have
been waiting' here, the former for 45
days, and the latter, about a month,
for cargoes of lumber. Capt. Charles
Peterson is skipper of tho Salvator
and he is rather disgusted at the in
activity he Is undergoing. The
Northwest was chartered by the
Riverton Lumber Co. to take a cargo
of spruce lumber and piling to San
Francisco. In a charter contract
demurrage commences after ten days
and the captain is sending a notice
to the Riverton Lumber Co. every
day. The forfeiture Is ?50 per day
when the ship is lying Idle.
The Northwest is without a cap
tain, as Captain Anderson of that
ship loft a week ago for San Fran

which is operating between San

County Court Gives Decision In
Accordance With Election
East Precinct Dry.
ENTER TWO GROG SHOPS.
Uoth-Do Good Business Back Door
Trade Is Especially
(Special to tho Times.)
Coquille, July G. Tho County
Court yesterday decided tho question
respecting the granting of license in
Coquille city. Tho matter has
caused great interest throughout the
county as well as among those locally
concerned. The decsion leaves tho
election as it was carried on Mon
day, June 3, when the west precinct
voted wet and the east precinct dry.
The effect, however, is that tho city
is wet, for it is no particularly stren-
uous effort for a man to get out of
the east precinct into the wet side
and enjoy his libations to his heart's
Two saloons were opened to the
thirsty public today, one In the Tup
per hotel and tho other by Baxter
Brothers. Business was fair, though
the long drought had partially
weaned some from the burning deslro
for drink. v It was noticeable that
back doors were doing a good share
of. the business, probably owing to
the sudden novelty thrust upon tho
city so unexpectedly, and that some
have not yet workeu up their cour
age to a front door bravery.
Additional Equipment Will Do Added
In Order to Increase
W. L. Whaley, proprietor of tho
Coos Bay Mattress Company, is pre
paring to move Into new and larger
quarters on July 15. Buildings aro
being constructed on lots south of
Mrs. Sarah Wilson's residenco on
Broadway by S. L. Gilroy. Thero
are two portions, each 24x49 feet,
one standing directly back of tho
other, with a' connecting runway
8x42 feet. In front is a 24x28 foot
plank dock, the approach to the
building. The front building is an
eighteen foot story and tho rear 14
Mr. Whaley purchased the busi
ness on the first of tho present ,year,
and since then has increased it so
largely that more room was neces
sary to care for tho trade. In his
now quarters, Mr. Whaley will add
from time, to time lines which tho
business will demand. Now equip
ment will be necessary in the new
location and will consist of the fol
lowing accessories: pneumatic filler
and felt machine, feather renovator
and mixer, mattress stuffing machino
with a capacity of 150 beds per day,
an Invention of Mr. Whaley.
Mr. Whaley has not yet decided
whether he will employ steam or
electricity as power, but inclines to
steam, since It can bo used for heat
and renovating. Ho will carry a
?3,000 stock of raw materials, and
will do all kinds of upholstering. Ho
expects to employ from fifteen to
twenty bunds, whereas, ho now has
room for but six, and when tho busi
ness .was purchased by him, two
hands could tako rare of tho work
Ho will manufacture a full lino of
upholstered goods, bedding, canvas
goods, including tents, besides dra
peries, comforts, spreads, carpet and
It is Interesting to know how tho

Mr. Whaley Is now manufacturing.
Ono who sees a mattress considers

cotton-folt, floss-felt, moss combina
tion, hair of all grades, wool and
excelsior combination, cotton tind'ex
colslor combination, all oxcelslor, all
wool, all grades of box mattresses.
It is a favorablo Indication of tho
