Secretary of Chamber of Com
merce Acquaints Himself
With Local Conditions.
WELL POSTED ON OREGON
Will Endeavor to Adjust Boat Rates
During Period of Colonist
Mr. Walter Lyon, who arrived
here Tuesday night to assume his
dutks with the Marshfleld Chamber
of Commerce, is posting himself as
rapidly a3 possible on the Coos Bay
country and its resources and will
soon be equipped o enter into the
work with prospects of obtaining
good results. He 13 not unacquaint
ed with the Oregon country, for he
has studied it in various ways, from
the editorial chair, and from the leg
islative halls. To say that he un
derstands Coos Bay would probably
require qualification, yet, with his
knowledge of other parts of the state
his work should soon outline itself
to him here. In stating that Mr.
Lyons has made observations from
the state house the fact of his being
secretary to a former governor was
The matter of looking up the col
onist travel and soliciting a change
in tho rates to Coos Bay has been
brought before him and he will learn
what can be done about the ques
tion, or at le.ist do something
toward directing tourists from
Portland toward Coos Bay, the
mecca of opportunity seekers.
Under tho present arrangement,
tourists or settlers who return must
pay twenty dollars extra for reach
ing Coos Bay. They can come to
Portland or Ashland for cerraln
prices, but when they wish to reach
this clime, there 13 more expense.
While this matter will bo investi
gated and adjusted, if possible, it is
tho opinion of most people that Mr.
Lyons will havo an all summer's job
if he chases such a rainbow. But It
Is unanimously agreed that thero
is nothing like trying, and the extra
ordinary discrimination which now
exists against Coos Bay may, per
advonture, be corrected.
Thero i3 one thing which Mr.
Lyoua advise3, and this Is. understood
by those who havo given tho matter
attontlon. The impression Is out
that Marshfleld is antagonizing tho
Southern Pacific railway. In at
empting to correct this imprecision,
n Mr. Lyons belloves In doing, no
one need feel thero Is any apology to
offer, but simply a statement of reel
facts, in contravention of word tlia:
has beeu disseminated by several
uowspapers in Oregon.
Mr. Lyons is well impressed with
tho situation In Marshfleld and .the
Coos Bay country and believes with
tho residents that thero 13 a great
future In store for this territory.

SUMMER HAIL STORM
Pleasant Valley Experiences Sudden
Change From Mild Summer
What Is claimed by tho older citi
zens to bo tho worst storm In the
history of Pleasant valley, visited
that section day beforo yesterday at
about tho noon hour, say the Salem
Journal. People were partaking of
the noonday meal, and many prob
ably were contemplating the cele
bration of tho Fourth for tho fol
lowing day, when suddenly the
heavens grew gray and the wind be
gan to blow. Tho day had been
rather warm and sultry but that at
mosphere was lifted as if by magic
and in its place came a cold air a3 if
blowing tiom an Iceberg. Showers
of rain fell at short intervals for
some time, then camo tho uailstorm
In all Its fury. The rattle of tho ' the opening feature wncn two can
frozen missiles was deafening, stock didates were initiated Into tho order.
ran for shelter and man yhead suf
fered from the stone3 which beat
mercilessly upon them. Window
glass crashed and shattered In every
house and for a time even the peo
ple with steady nerves did not know
what to think of tho general appear-
anco of things.
John Troy, who is farming several
hundred acres of land In Pleasant
Valley this year, was In town yester
day, and in speaking of the storm,
ho said: "I havo lived in that section '
of the country for a quarter of a cen
tury, and I never have seen a storm
equal It. I measured some of the
hailstones as soon as I dared leave
shelter and they measured two Inches
through, many were large as hens
eggs yhen they fell. The damage
cannot be estimated that has been
dono to crops and fruit by this storm.
The rye and alfalfx were very flue
but for a space of two miles, the
distance the storm traveled, it is all
laid flat to tho ground. Fruit In
that same district is torn from the
. ...i tl. i i.
trees and even the sago brush was
stripped of its leaves. A lime kiln
down the gulch was set on fire by
the storm. Every window glass in
my house was broken. It is hard to
estimato the loss I will suffer, but
I could say it will be at least $1,500."
Mrs. A. B. Fleming, who Hve3 near
Pleasant Valley, Is In town today,
and in speaking of the storm there
day before yesterday said that it was
very bad. She described it as a
waterspout, and stated that one ranch
which is operated by a man named
Johnson is almost a total wreck. At
the Whitehead ranch a lady and her
baby wero rescued just in time to
savo them from the terrible flood.
