Address all communications to
COOS BAY TIMES
TO THE CHAMBER QV COMMERCE
There is a suggestion as to adver
tising the Coos Cay country which
should be taken up by the two
Chambers of Commerce and which
refers to a feature which has been
overlooked. It is fair to say that the
idea has been in the mind of the able
secretary of the Marshfield Chamber,
and It In hoped that It will be urged
by him and received by the Cham
bers with approval. And in this con
nection It is proper to say that the
two Chambers should work together
in having such advertising matter
published as affects the prosperity of
the Bay, generally.
What we refer to 13 the fact that
the literature of Coos Bay, including
the Call of Coos Pay; Mr. Snover's
address on the Gravensteln apple,
pamphlet3 on coal, on timber, on
dairying, on vegetables,- on agricul
ture generally, should be translated
into the German and Scandinavian
languages and sent to Missouri, Mln
nesota,Wi?consin and other localities
for distribution. It i3 a fact that
the Germans are more Interested in
fruit culture and dairying than most
of the races and the Scandinavians
make good farmers. Thousands of
Germans are leaving the middle
states and going to Wenatchee, to
Yakima, to Hood River where they
purchase five or ten acres of fruit
land, paying almost fabulous prices
for them, and then paying also large
rates for water to irrigate the came
land. The Coos B.'ty county is Im
measurably superior to the countries
mentioned or any district east ot the
Pacific coastal region, for many
kinds of fruit and everything else.
The German HUo3 to read about
these subjects in liis own language.
It Is perhaps not known to tho aver
age Pacific coast American that the
bulk of German immigration at this
time conies from the provinces of
Austria and consists of very well-to-do
farmers who havo given their at
tention mostly to fruit culture or
dairying. Yet such is the fact.
Largo numbers would come to this
coast if they knew Its advantages.
The Scandinavian, whether he
comes from Sweden, Norway or Den
mark, ranks as among tho best citi
zons the United Stntes receives,
Coos Bay is now particularly inter
esting to tho Scandinavians of Min
nesota and there is but little requir
ed to direct tho Hood of Immigration
hero from that locality. The two
Chambers should aid Mr. Lyons in
advancing tho idea and now is tho
accepted time. It should be remem
bered that the fall Is the best time
lor bucIi literature to reach Minne
sota, Wisconsin and tho two Dako
tas. They dread tho winter and
"Are tired of tho plains
With their snow blockaded trains,
And aro coming whero it rain.
' i ' ' "i"
Tho strike of tho Telegraphers'
Union continues to bo tho topic of
discussion among local pholisophers.
That tho lack of communication with
tho outside world Is one of tho great
est misfortunes which this ago suf
fers, is not inudo any less unbearable
by tho recollection that even with
out tho telegraph wo aro in bettor
Blmpo for news than our ancestors
were a century ago. At least, wo
aro able to get our mall nnd it comes
to us on tho swift trains or In tho
steamboats. A century ago our an
cestors were happy and healthy with
out any of these modern conven
iences, while most of us look for
ward to tho insane asylum ns our
probable destination, if tho ofllclency
of tho telegraph service is not soon
restored. Yet what havo wo lost?
Apart from tho disturbance of busi
ness, wo aro anxious to hear what
Is going on in London, in Paris, in
Irkutsk, in Pekin, and Tokio. We
want to know whether tho cannnbals
havo enjoyed a now feast; whether
some fearful murder has occurred in
Chicago, or what now form of cruelty
has been tried on tho weak and help
less, or on tho trusting nnd innno
ccnt. Of course wo need to know
these things, but why do wo consider
It a calamity moroly becnuso wo must
wait for tho fast mails Instead of
getting tho same news by oluctrlcity
Wo hnvo fed and wo feed on a
form of sonsatiounllsm, which did
not disturb our fnthors. If tho
strikers should bo discharged for
ever; If tho olllces should nil bo shut
up; If no more koys should ovor click
again; e would still bo bettor off
than our fathers, but wo wuiuu uio
of selMufllctcd misery.
Funny! They aro nil allko. They
want $3,000, but whon you offer
them $4,000, they refuse it. You
offer $-1,000 becnuso you need it and
will spend enough on it to ninko it
worth $0,000, but tho man who only
-wanted $3,000 wont lot you mako it
worth $0,000, unless you pay him
?B,000. Better lot go when you get
what you want and the city will have
a better chance to Improve. Then
you can repeat your profit in another
part of tho plat.
Professor Frederick Starr, anthro'
pologist, Chicago University, thinks
the Japanese can whip America. He
also calU attention to the fact that
deseitlohs continually occur from
the army. There has always been a
crop of professors bofoi e every war,
In the midst of every epidemic, and
after every flood, fire and earth-

fessors are always found alive and ,

Advices from many districts are to
tho effect that the fruit has been
ruined by late frosts. From other
districts It is. learned that the apple
crop has been badly damaged by
codlln moths. Still from others it
appears that there will be a short
crop on account of hot woather. But
neither frost, nor pest nor heat can
ever hurt the certain crop which
Coos Bay never fails to develop.
Mr. Bryan was a prophet of ca
lamity in 1S06. In 1907 he assures
the people through the columnr. of
hl3 paper, the Commoner, that tho
volume of money has increased with
the increased output of gold and that
prices of commodities have raised in
consequence. He tells us there can
be no hard times ahead as long as
money is increasing and prices aro
on the Increasing hand.
