phatlc in this part of its report in
bringing the attention of the public
to this fact; these tidelands can now
be obtained gratis, whereas, should
the scheme fall through and not be
)uahed for a year or two, there
would likely be warehouses estab
lished on the other side of the chan
nel, and the people of Marshfleld
would have lost a golden opportunity
for improving the harbor.
The fact Is plain that should this
matter not be prosecuted until the
other side commences to build up,
the expense would then be much
greater, and 1 might never be ac
complished. One requirement the
government would insist upon in caso
the lino were changed is that all
riparian rights must be relinquished,
the territory taken In by the new
channel to become government prop
erty. The depth for the 10,000 feet
would be uniformly 20 feet at low
water mark, thus giving adequate
water for all vessels that would enter
Tho amount of earth to be remov
ed In this undertaking the committee
has figured from tho geological sur
vey, and finds it to be approximately
three million cubic yards, a vast
amount of dirt, but this could be
removed by a drdeger with a 5,000
yards per day capacity in GOO days,
about two years. The committee
has figured this matter with allow
ances for delays and possible break
ages and allows three years for its
completion? The cost for the dredg
ing has been estimated from similar
work done on the Willamteto and
Columbia rivers and Puget Sound.
This can be done for five cents per
cubic yard. It has the opinion of
Captain Pohlemus that the contract
can be let at that figure.
The total cost, therefore, estimat
ing as before stated, would be one
hundred and fifty thousand dollars.
Part of this expense has been pro
vided for by the committee, which
has negotiated with property owners
In Railroad addition and obtained
agreements to take enough filling at
ten cents per yard to amount to ?40,
000. This is a very large item in
connection with tho work. Tho bal
ance of the fund would necessarily
have to be obtained by assessment
of water front owners, to be assisted
by the general public which will be
accordingly benefitted by the pro
The committee has planned a
scheme of payment which should be
looked upon favorably by everybody
Interested in the future of Coos Bay
This is the proposition; the payments
would be divided into five yearly In
stallments. The work would of
course be completed in three jcars,
probably sooner, and the remaining
two years' assessments could be un
derwritten by some company, the in
terested parties giving sufficient se
curity for the payments. No person
contributing tidelands on the east
edge of the channel will be asked to
subscribe financial aid to the work.
Tho cost per running foot is less than
The committee has already several
applications for permission to bid
on the work, and It Is now up to the
people of Marshfleld to say whether
they wish this work done. No one.
can deny its aid to the harbor will
be of great benefit to Marshfleld and
the immediate neighborhood and the
committee believes the plan not only
feasible, but a matter of pure
