STRIKES AND AiliHTKATIOX.
nother strike is precipitated into
the biiElness caldron and again tho
pot nearly jboils ova This time tho
teler.rcph operators walk out. There
have Inen so many strikes fy recent
yearj tl.at the public is far less inter-e-te.l
in the cause of each than that
in tiij question of how to shift the
repon. iuility of judgment and mak
ing FtrII.e3 unnecessary. No doubt
that labor has a right to organise.
No doubtithat it will organize and
will a rt its rights. No doubt thqt
tho urbanization Is very frequently
right and that capital is- sometimes
wrong. The old theory upon which
all bu.-'n 'js was operated was that It
was a private affair in which the
workman and the public had very
liulo concern. But since the expan
sion of some of these private inter
ests into all absorbing monopolies,
the public has come to think that It
has some right to know how they are
being run. This is especially true of
tho public service corporations.
They havj takon control of the means
of livelihood, and -the sources of
human comfort, and they must so
handle these mattoi'3 as not to be
Now what tho public wants is to
have lt-oor and capital agree, if they
can, upon a method of settling thesen
disnutes which disturb society, with
out paralyzing business. The loss to
society I-, too great and cannot be
tolerated much longer. The strike
Is tho worst remedy which -can bo
applied. What is needed 13 a dif
ferent and better remedy for tho evil
of which the unions may complain.
If they have a grievance It should
be submitted without cessation of
work to some fair tribunal which
can and will decide where justice lies
nnd when the decision Is made it
should be enforced. The difficulty, of
course, Is to find a form of tribunal
which cannot be corrupted. There Is
danger in all merely human Institu
tions due to tho fact that "mankind
Is unco weak and rarely to bo
trusted," but arbitration, even If
It is defective, cannot be so wasteful
and destructive and tho cause of so
much misery a3 tho labor strike.
There Is no disposition now to con
sider tho merit of labor's claims or
tho claims of tho company in connec
tion with tho present strike. Tho
telegraphers' union Is fully as intel
ligent as any other, and It Is as woll
acquainted with what it ought to
have as any union, but tho public is
to blamo for not providing laws to
enforce arbitration, when tho con
tending forces fail to make such pro
Tho recent discussion of tho fruit
possibilities of Coos Bay and tho
country trlbutnry to It, has already
begun to show results. Tho secret
divulged by Mr. Snover's address to
the effect that tho Coos Bay Gravon
Bteln npplo attains tho best form and
reaches tho highest approach to per
fection, lias ben ropeatcdly confirmed
by a number of visitors nnd tho wit
nesses to tho superiority of the unex
celled product of our orchards are
without number. Surely tho Graven
etoin tho Coos Bay Grnvenstein
Is a booming. .. Hut it Is not a pass
ing, hollow boom it Is a boom which
brings a real dazzling Bom of tho
purest ray from tho oblivion to which
It has been relegated.
Tho statement of ono who Invested,
a few days ago, In n considerable
tract of luml not far from tho city
that ho proponed to put n portion of
It into Gravonstoin npplo trocs and
would divide tho rwt into five and
ti-n aero tracts to bo devoted by any
puul'.istr to the samo purpose, Is a
But,'htUin which our roal ostato men
imjjlii tll consider. It is not pos
sible t. think of any better invost
m nt than the bench lands around
Ci ob Bay and in the vicinity of its
Inlets, Coos Klver, Coquillo nnd tho
tributaries of those streams and wat
ers, afford. Moat of thorn are ideal
apple lands. Thoy can bo, In many

instances, cleared of their new
growth very cheaply and when
cleared are far more profitable than
any other lands. Of course tho dairy
Interests will always be great but
fruit land, properly cleared, sold
vvunin reasonauie minis, tuiunuui
carefuljy are the sourco of very largo
part, and perhaps the best part, of
tliat prosperity which is preparing
for Coos Bay. More money will be
made In bringing fruit 'lands to the
notice of investors than in advertis
ing town lots.
To the Editor of tho Coos Bay Times:
Sir: In a recent issue of tho Coos
Bay Harbor was published a "sensa
tional" article entitled "Would Bunco
Coos Bay." I am" pretty well con
vinced that by this time the Harbor
knows that it ha3 In the same article,
done an .Injustice ot tho United
Wireless Telegraph Company as well
as o the "Eastern Promoter," that Is
to ' myself, and to Mr. Shoemaker,
known to a good many people on
Coos Bay, and who is primarily re
sponsible for my being at Coos Bay
and trying to Interest the Coos Bay
people In the erection of a wireless
station at Coos Bay. I have sub
mitted to Mr. Loggle, as president of
the North Bend Chamber of Com
merce, papers and documents, which
retute everything derogatory to
tho company, whom I have tho honor
:o represent. As, however, the Har-
bor'3 accusations have been made in j
public print ana as my exoneration
has been practically a private one, I
jeliovo that, rav course of nnswerinir
the attack in public print will be 1
jmtlfied to eifrry thinking man in '
the community and that for this cor
rection on my part 1 choose the
"Times" and not the Harbor, 13 sure
ly explained by the fact that the Har
bor, being a weekly publication will
not again come before the eyes of its
readers baforo almost another week,
a tlmo much too lone to leave the
Harbor's readers under the imares-
sion that it has given to me and my
cause a "knockout" from which I
can not recover.
I shall tane up the "points" which
were mado in the article, point by
Thoy were as follows: "Would
Erect Station Here, Maybe, is noth
ing But Scheme to Part People and
Their Money." Let me tell to the
reading public In general that previ
ous to the publication of the Har
bor article I had not mentioned my
project to more than one man in
North Bend. To this one man, one of
North Bend s most prominent towns
men, 1 distinctly stated that I "Did
not rant to collect a single dollar
frnm nnvlindv v1in vmild trivn us a
stock subscription except at a time
.1 1.- ..1 d X t. .....4.1 .
wnen ilia upuciiun ui uia suiuuu in.
Coos Hay vaa i aisu-o'l fact."
Will anybody be good enou-Th to tell
me how, under such circumstances
and conditions, the erectio.1 of tho
station is a "maybe," and is tho
scheme of parting the pyople and
their money an absolute, uncontro
It wan stated in the Ha-bor as fol
lows: "United Wireless Stock Noth
ing But Worthless Pappr," and it
was attpmptcd to "prove" this to tho
Harbor's own satisfaction by ex
tracting from a libelous article pub
lished in "Success" Magtslne, a dis
tor:eJ version, choosing to even over
look the points of crodit that the
notorious Mr. Fayant, the writer of
the "Succo33" article can not help
to concede to the Art of Wireless
Telegraphy, to the United Wireless
Telegraph Company, and to Mr. C.
C. Wilson, It's president. The Har
bor says that United Wireless is the
offspring of one Abraham White,
who cleared up ?100,000 on an in-
vnstmmit nf 44 pmit-q. Ts there a
man, woman or child, who could fall
to understand this to mean that
White created tho United Wireless at
an expense of 4 1 cents and cleared
up out of tho samo United Wireless
tho pretty penny of $100,000? Why
was It not stated that this invest
ment of 44 cents was mado by Mr.
White more than 10 years before
United Wireles3 had over been
thought of in 22 postage stamps af
fixed to 22 letters addressed to tho '
Treasury department of tho United j
states anti containing zz uius ior
United States bonds which tho Clove
land administration was just thon
about to sell to tho highest bidder,
that In theso bids ho outbid tho
shrewd money clique of Wall Street
and by offering tho Government a
littlo moro for It's bonds than tho
lattor, secured the award of a largo
quantity of those bonds, that, him
self being a youngster without
money, ho turned this contract with
at a profit to himself of tho said
$100,000? Is there anything dis
