COOS BAY TIMES
IRON IIOKSK TALK.
Tho news columns contain some
information which the people of
Coos Bay may well consider serious
ly. Whether the Drain road will be
hero in a short time, or not so soon,
is a question which It would be better
for the people of North Bend and
Marshfleld to lay on tho table. If it
comes soon, well and good. If It
comes sooner, well and better. But
It is the complaint of all Oregon that
the S. P. does nothing for this state
until It has to. It is claimed on all
sides that Oregon Is a sucker to be
done to death by land thieves, tim
ber barons, fish kings and Harriman.
Yet those who know how rich and
.fertile, how productive and dellghtfu,
Oregon is from every point of view,
understand why the Southern Pacific
does not fear to hold this state out of
use as long as it can, and how It
hopes to occupy It as nearly exclu
sively as possible.
Oregon ha3 never had anything to
expect from the Southern Pacific, and
Coos Bay has no right to lose any
hopes on It. Those who have been
rdady to concede everything to that
company for the sake of seeing the
locomotive puff and the Southern Pa
cific bluff in their district, are mis
taken. You can't' get anything out
of that company any more than you
can out of a mule. It will do no
good to give. Like the daughters of
the horse leech, it will simply cry
MORE. It will do no good to pet
and flatter. It romalns obdurate and
Toracious. It will do no good to
criticise and demand. It merely
smiles and asks "What are you going
to do about it?"- T. P. B. D. which
being translated into S. P. language
as applied to Oregon means: "The
Public Bo Damned."
But let Coos Bay do something for
itself. It is silly to keep proposing
road's like tho Roseburg electric lino
and! then let them fade away. Or-
ganlzo a local company and get ready
to build a practical line. Organlzo
and get the rights of way. Organlzo
'and get a good active man to give his
whole time and attention to promot
ing it In connection with tho North
western. Organize and pay a per
centage of the capital stock In so that
tho man employed to promote can
keep alive and appear decently while
60 Is attending to his work. Organ
ize! Tho trouble with tho proposi
tions heretofore dumped Into this
community Is, that they began with a
Tory enthusiastic mob and they ended
srhen the mob dispensed. This prop
osition to do business with a view
singlo to a connection with the North
western transcontinental will bring
tho Northwestern transcontinental
within a very few months nnd con
nect with tho N. W. system within
two years. And it can bo done if a
good active man of respectable ability
and possessed of tho proper spirit is
employed to push it nnd is given suf
ficient scopo for his enterprise. If
thoro nro not sufficient brains and
money in Coos Bay and Roseburg to
appreciate these suggestions then lot
s pray that time will euro tho defect.
HOW M'K GROW.
When tho future of tho bays nnd
accessible Inlots of tho Pacific coast
are under consideration, it ia qulto
common to hear old tlinors Bay that
tho coast is slower In development
than any part of tho American Union.
But they do not reflect that over If
this has seemed to bo so in tho past
that all tho logic of tho situation in
dicates that it is likely to bo tho
swiftest development in tho future.
Tho truth is plain enough that tho
Coast ibccamo populous boforo Its
ltfnie. Tho wavo of Improvement was
wVawlv moving wostwnrd and had
wxrciiy found an advanco post on
tte JUVslsstnpl river whon, all of n
sodden, a great jump was nvado, ovor
31. vast wilderness and desert, ovor
fcamunisQ tracts of fertlo area, Tho
Pacific coast was thus settlod up un
sonsonably and It has beon compelled
to wait until the great mass of hu
manity came up to it. Now It Is here
and the next few years will witness
a growth and development which will
stagger both Egypt and the Promised
Only eighty years ago tho frontier
of America was east of Pittsburg,
Pennsylvania. The country beyond
was so wild and impenetrable that
only the most daring and adventur
oils spirits cared to enter it. That
was about 1827, and there are old
men now living whose lives span the
whole period. In 1847, twenty years
later, Toledo, Ohio, was a remote
frontier town, and Chicago was
scarcely more than a collection of
shanties around Fort Dearborn. St.
Paul, Minneapolis, Omnha, Denver
and the rest of those marvels of
urban growth, had scarcely been
thought of, , It is said that in that
year Daniel Webster visited Toledo
and was disrated at the town lot
boom which'was going on there nt
the time, while his friends were In
trepIdatlQnt'l)ack east, lest the great
man might lose lils scalp. In 18G7
Omaha ;Kanfnsi, City, Denver were
wild towns and Leavenworth, Kansas,
was about the only town west of the
Mississippi rier which was of suf
ficient importance to put on tho map.
In 1887 tho frontier was practically
gono and now there is no frontier.
In other words the turn- of tho Pa
cific coast has como and tho startling
growth of Seattle, Portland,, Los An
geles, Oakland and other cIties(Jnot to
say San Francisco, which 'is' fast re
viving, surpasses anything in Ameri
can history, And Coos Bay will not
It is safe to bet or Invest on or In
anything on the Pacific coast which
Is like anything ever valued else
where. This coast will have the
densest population of any of the dis
tricts west of the Atlantic coastal
plain. This statement is not a
prophesy but merely a logical con
clusion. In the midst of all that the
past proves, the present furnishes
and the future promises, it is not
necessary for Coos Bay to wait for
the patronage of a great corporation
to push it to the front or connect it
with the outside world. She can not
fall of success if she undertakes to do
Two incidents ofmarked Intere&t
to the people who are Interested In
the great harbor facilities of Coos
Bay have recently been noted in the
Times. The one was the destruction
of the steamboat on the Mississippi
river and the other on tho Columbia.
The first case was where a strong
wind carried the boat beyond the con
trol of tho crew iind against the Eads
bridge, damaging the boat seriously.
Tho second was nearer home, where
the steamer Norma with supplies for
the North Bank on tho Upper Colum
bia, was blown against the piers of
the Alnsworth bridge, at the mouth
of the Snako river and so badly dam
aged that she will bo out of commis
sion for four or flvo weeks. The im
pact knocked off tho wheel, demol
ished tho port cylinder timbers, and
stripped off her railing from stem to
Theso occurrences are Just what
may bo expected on Coos Bay if a
bridge should bo thrown across at
any point and particularly at tho
place so often suggested by those who
advocate a "railroad at any price."
It should be plain enough that the
strong breezo 'from the ocean which,
in any seaport may stiffen into a
gale, is pretty likely to affect naviga
tion no matter how skillful tho skip
per or master of tho ship may "bo. It
would deter ship owners from mak
ing his port. It would Increase
marine Insurance. It would diminish
the value of the entire bay and put
It In a class which would render It
contomptible to the eyes of congress
and mako appropriations for dredg
ing and Improving tho harbor im
probable. It would bottlo up tho bay.
