COOS BAY TIMES
fcre would no more completo
I of tho excitable nature of those
lattach themselves to tho so-
Boclallst party than the pro-
suddenly made by a member
lem to mako Mr. William Hay-
tbe Socialist candidate for
dent In 1908. Certainly no ob-
bn can bo offerod to that party
what It chooses as it Is not
to be In practical politics any-
but It would bo interesting as
Sidy In human nature to lnvostl-
the motives of those who should
Inate him, It being evident' that
as no particular recommondatlon
their favor except that ho has
been acquitted upon a charge of
der. Mr. Haywood has become
lely known on account of tho now
ou8 Boise trial, but it does not
ear that tho trial developed any
t genius on his part or showed
he had any grasp of political
stlons. Like all radical parties,
iallstn thrives on sensationalism.
1111am Haywood is not to be re
ded as a public character any
e than H. H. Rogers. Ho is at
head of a large labor organlza-
ana tnat j organization has a
t to exist and to protect its mem-
from the exactions of capital,
as capital has a right to organize
Insist on protection for Its prop
But Hi H. Kogers should
er be regarded as a suitable can-
ate for high office. Neither should
labor lender. Both are theo-
cally engaged in providing for the
ds of the great world and should
the world's servants and subject
the world'wlshes and will. Both
e encroached upon tho world's
fort and good order. Both have
ken tho law and, In so far as they
e broken Oio law, they are sub-
to criticism. The trial at Bofse
not result in Haywood's conVlc
and It dldrnot prove him a hero.
Imply saldAhat tho man was not

erlcan people were glad to hear
They arSnot anxious that any
pcent manV. should be convicted.
Public Isnot interested in the
stlon whether a criminal is a
on man or a mine owner. . They
simply Interested In the nunish-
t of the criminal.
HTItKKT I URS AGAIN.
Tho people of Marshfleld arc be
ginning to realize that the city must
bo treated as one likely to grow and
become large. Tho action of Tho
Times in calling attention to tho
failure of tho council In tho past to
provide for uniform and sufficient
street grades has resulted in a very
useful discussion and many citizens
very properly feel that tho grades
must bo established on a basis of
progress. It would manifestly be
very absurd If the various buildings
which are being erected should each
bo provided with a grade of Its own,
possibly different from others. It
wpuld bo equally absurd if such
grades should be made haphazard
without being subject to any superior
authority. The engineering depart
ment Is expected to look out for tho
public Interests In this respect and
the public Is Interested In having Its
streets as unlform-nnd level as pos
sible and not like tho corrugated
back of a doubled-humped camel.
Tho engineering department can
not act, of course, without authoriza
tion. It can not be said that present
conditions are anybody's fault, but
thore will very shortly bo conditions
In Marshfleld streets which will be
very unsatisfactory, unless a system
of uniform grades is fixed.
WHAT OTHERS SAY
Mil. HAIIIUMAN AND PORTLAND.
It Is said that Mr. Harrlman Is to
bring coal to Portland. This might
be good news If we could eliminate
tho activity of the fuel trust.
A DETROIT VIEW OF EDWARD.
Tho Detroit News states the case
bluntly thus: "E. H. Harrlman
voted an issue of bonds, pocketed the
millions, and left tho rifled railroad
to stagger under lts load, of debt.
Had he stolon Ave cents ,from a gro
cery counter.'uhe would have been
EVENING VS. MORNING PAPERS.
The evening paperB had a meagre
report that a shipwreck had occurred,
but the morning papers told what It
was and who were lost. Tho even
ing papers usually tell that some
thing has happened and tho morning
papers tell, what it was. And yet
there is room for the evening papers.

Commendation is due the city
council In their effort to have the
weeds cut from the streets. Let
this good -work beprosecuted, It is a
step In tho right direction. The

fathers take notice of the noxious

.CHAMBERLAIN THE SPRINTER.
(The Dallas Optimist.)
The Oregonlan thinks there Is no-
danger of Chamberlain being elected,
butln tho next breath It says a Re-
publican will not bo elected (To tho
senate.) But Mr. Scott must re
member that he was not here during
tho last campaign and probably does
.not know that as a sprinter, beforo

WE'VE GOT A CLIMATE TOO.
The dispatches of yesterday tell
about the great heat in various parts-'
of the country east of the Rocky
Mountains, and at Kansas City, Mis
sourl, 125 horses dropped dead from
he 'terrible effects- of the sun's rays.
We 'of tho Willamette valloy should
congratulate ourselves at being able
o enjoy the grandest climate in the
For a good, many years Albany peo
ple have buUt up false hopes on the
Extension of the' Corvallls and East
ern into Crook county. Several;
times It' has looked' as if it wa8 bound
to go over the hills, but It didn't.
Different things arose to stop It.
Now our hopes aro built up on a more
solid basis than over, and it again
looks as if something Fas bound to
occur. But it Is all founded on
straws, and where they will land Is
the speculation. From any stand
point It 1b the business of the Harrl
man syndicate to go Into eastern Ore
gon from this direction with Ha roadH
The people are entitled to It, but
more than that, It Is a business prop
osition, for there Is every reason to
believe It would Increase the business
of the road to a remarkable degree,
perhaps more than double It by sim
ply getting down to a connection with
a wagon road, so that eastern Ore
gon people could come out this way
to a market with the world.
THAT ELECTRIC ROAD
An Impression seems to
gained circulation that the move
ment for an , electric railway be
tween Roseburg and Coos Bay has
been dropped, at least for the pres
ent. Such la not tho case. The
Coos Bay people aro moving along
steadily toward completing their
stock subscriptions and upwards of
$90,000 is reported as being onw
subscribed In that county. A re
newed effort to complete the first
$125,000 Is to be made there right
away and that total may be reached
within a week. As soon as this is
done, a formal call will be Issued to
the stockholders for permanent or
ganization. Our local people should
not bo found napping, but be ready
to go ahead at once and put tho
movement on a working basis. Both
counties need that road and no Deter
tlmo than now will bo found for put
ting It under way. Heavy capitalists
In the EaBt are looking this way for
Investments and there Is no beter
way to get them into this part of tho
stnto than to start work on this railroad.
