expected that there will be need of
some relief for a certain class of
At the headquarters of the Na
tional Red Cross today the clerk in
charge said that General Davis had
made a repo-t of a very satisfactory
character n the manner 'Inwjtfcli
the funds had been expended in San
Francisco, that he had sent copies
to the executive committee and the
Secretary of War, and had gone on
his vacation. The members of the
executive committee are mostly on
their vacations also, and the Secre
tary of War, who Is enjoying a vaca
tion In the northern woods, it is said,
intends to present General Davis' re
port to the President after the latter
gets in his hay and other crops at
Oyster Bay. It seems evident, there
fore, that however favorable the re
port of General Davis, there will be
no possibility of action under it for
several months. ,
The clerk in charge of the Red
Cross office said that the committee
at San Francisco had on hand about
$500,000, and that the $700,000 on
hand in this city would bo forwarded
as required. He said that James D.
Phelan expressed tho opinion that
the balance hero should be retained
for use next wlntir. It has been
doled out heretofore on monthly
estimates submitted from San Fran
cisco, but theso estimates have now
been discontinued and it is under
stood that very little money will be
used during tho summer. The final
disposition of the money on hand
will depend on the decision of Piesl
dent Roosevelt on his perusal of
General Davis' report.

Subscription Books Have Recn Left
In MarMiflcld and North Bend
Mr. W. F. Keller, -jf Arago, was
in Marshfleld yesterday in the inter
est of a fair association for Coos
county. The plan Is to hold annual
fairs at Arago, whero there Is ample
room and fine grounds for such an
undertaking. Mr. Keller, In com
pany with a few other men, held a
race meet there last fall after con
structing a gpod half mile track, and
the events attracted large crowds
from both Coos and Curry counties.
This Interest In last fall's attempt to
establish something of such a nature
encouraged the people of Arago, and
tho plan of making the meeting and
fair an annual event Is the result.
There are now a number of build
ings on the grounds, but more are
necessary if the plans are carried
through and the proposed associa
tion becomes a fact. Fences are
necessary as well, to enclose the
grounds, and exhibit buildings must
Mr. Keller states that 'he is re
ceiving flattering encouragement in
his canvass for subscriptions to the
stock of the association, and the
committee has $3,000 of the $5,000
necessary for incorporating, already
signed. On this side, he finds the
people are anxious that the associa
tion be organized and they promise
aid and cash. He has left one sub
scription book with L. J. Simpson at
North Bend, and one in Marshfleld
with John Herron. The shares are
five dollars each, and there 13 no
limit on subscriptions.
The grounds have been leased for
a term of Ave years, to be paid for
as follows: The first year free; the
second and third years, ono hundred
dollars per year; tho fourth and fifth
years, one hundred fifty dollars per
year. A pavilion will bo built at the
starting point bordering the course.
It Is desired to rush the work
through and get ready to open this
fall. It Is a big undertaking, but
the Interested parties believe they
can accomplish their purpose. Such
an Institution, if handled well and
the dates wero set ut times previous
to the rainy season, would bo a good
thing for Coos and Curry counties.
The fair at Arago would conflict but
very little with those In other parts
of the state if dates were identical,
since so long as there Is no rail
road, It would be practically a local
affair. The only possible chance for
conflict would bo In the racing end
of the proposition. Yet, until rail
roads reach the country, there will
ho few ruco horses brought In for
contests This thins should ho a go,
and It will give tho country some
good entertajnnients If carried
