COOS BAY TIMES
THE COOS 1JAV DAIRY.
The action of the Marshfield Cham
ber of Commerce in holding weekly
meetings and arranging a program
which Is designed to extend the use
fulne33 of tho Chamber and 'at th6
same time keep the people pro
foundly Interested In its work, can
not be too highly commended. It is
just such movements that bring suc
cess to a country and this one can
not fall to acquaint our home people
with the &everal important Interests
of Coos Bay and afford accurate In
formation to tho outside world. In
deed, it is easy to foresee that this
weekly lecture plan which involves
a discussion of some one of Coos
Bay's interests and the relation
which each bears to the public wel
fare will sooner or later, if persisted
In, result in a permanent exposition
Which will enlighten the world.
The address of Dairy and Food
Commissioner Bally last evening was
one which was listened to with in
tense interest and proved to be very
Instructive. While It Is not neces
sary to doubt that the Gravensteln
apple Is the leader among the pro
ducts of the farm, it must be ad
mitted that tho cow and her pro
ducts aro of prime importance. As
shown by tho address of the com
missioner, the rich bottom lands,
hitherto called marshes, are In all
respects as rich as those of Holland
which Is one of Europe's greatest
dalty districts. There the bottom
lands are worth one thousand dol
lars per acre because, of course, they
havo been brought to a high state of
cultivation and are surrounded by a
dense population. But the lands of
Coos county which aro peculiarly
adapted to dairying ate capable of
returning far greater profits than
those of Holland.
We have no doubt of the future.
Lands now selling at a comparatively
small price in tho urrounding coun
try when devoted to the ubos of the
small farmer will be the backbone
of Cooslan pi osperlty. It Is the duty
of those who have the best interests
of the city of Coosbny at heait to
direct the world's attention, as far
as may be done, to its fruit and dairy
possibilities. Let it be remembered
that Eureka, on llumbolt Bay, south
ot this city, Is a place of j. 4,0 00 peo
plo and has no railroad. It depends
on its timber and dairy Interests ex
clusively. Tillamook, without this
great bay and harbor which Coo3bay
possesses, will became a great and
rich district through her dairying
pursuits. Coosbay must let no re
gion, less favored, excel her.
TIIK It. 1). INMAX.
The Oiegonian of August 14th
contains a large cut, showing the
steamer B. D. Inman at the water
front In tho Willamette river at
Portland. Beneath the picture,
which Is a creditable one, Is an Item
referring to tho formal christening
which took place Id fiont of tho In
man, Poulson & Company mill on the
13th Inst. It nppears from that Item
that this splendid boat Is regarded
as ono of tho finest lumber carriers
which ever entered that port and sho
la designed to operato between Port
land and San Francisco.
Tho It. D. Inman was built on Coos
Bay for tho Portland company. The
Oregonlan artlclo does not mention
tho fact that this magnificent ship
was built here. It would havo been
a simple act of jubtlce to give ner
little sister of tho sea tho credit
which would pleaso and encourngo
that little sister. But tho Oregonlan
is a great paper of tho old school
which has llttlo lntorest In Coos Bay
or Southern Oregon. Possibly It was
not intended as a slight. Perhaps
tho editor forgot that Coos Bay was
on tho map. It may bo ho preferred
Portland to gee tho reputation of
having built this boat. Had tho
christening boon in San Francisco,
big, metiopolitan, cosmopolitan and
liberal San Francisco would have
gladly patted Coos Bay on tho head,
as it were, and said to tho world,
"Such things aro dono at Coos Bay,
tho city up on tho Oregon coast
whoso business San Francisco goes
after and gots." That's why San
Frnncisco is a metropolitan city and
why Portland has had so much dllll
culty to grow whon nature- intended
hor to bp great and Iter jealously or
ubsent miudedness and littloness of
spirit kept her down. But Portland
is outgrowing thnt littleness. Tho
old nauownoss is disappearing. Af
tor a while- sho will bo wlso ouough
to glvo du s credit to all parts of tho
great stat- whoso daughter sho is.
Our Handicapped State.
Orogon has many handicaps. They
mllltato against hor growth. They
contrive ngalnst hor progress. They
lost to hor tho Important place on
tho map bho desorvos. Her peoplo
do not understand her. They mag
nify her limitations, and minimize
her possibilities. They haven't fa
cilities for packing her fruit, and
have to ship it to Washington to be
taken care of. They Import tinned
strawberries but ought to export
them. They Import eggs, they im
port butter, they import cheese, ba
con and lard. All these things they
can beat the world in producing. A
reason why they don't Is that they
do not know Oregon, and what sho
will do in production If they will
only give herthe chance. This is a
bad handicap. It is a reason why
Oregon 13 not more populous and
more thrifty. It means that the
state should be studied, her capabil
ities be learned and powers be
But there is a wor3e handicap. It
is the criminal discrimination by
railroad owners against Oregon. By
them sho Is made the tag end of the
country. She Is Ignored and neglect
ed. She Is miserably and wantonly
In means of transportation sho Is
at the lowest level. She has a small
er percentage of railroad mileage
than has wild, desert New Mexico.
There are only three statos in the
whole union that have a smaller rail
road mileage. Notwithstanding her
great area, she is in the same class
with Rhode Island, Delaware, Ne
vada, Connecticut, Vermont, Wyom
ing, New Hampshire, Idaho, Utah,
Arizona and Oklahoma. For every
100 square miles of land, Oregon has
1.82 "miles of railroad. Only three
states have less. They aro Wyoming,
1.27; Arizona, 1.19; Idaho, 1.72.
Oregon has all told 1,720 miles
of railroad; Washington, smaller In
area, has o,275. It Is an ugly fact,
but It Is true. We may hate It, but
we are at the foot of the list. The
discrimination against us Is a trag
edy. Why should we wonder at our
slow growth? In tho presence of
the stubborn truth, shall we not open
