SENATORIAL CANVASS iROSEBURG FAIR TO BE
SHOWS SIGNS OF LIFE HELD SEPT. 10th TO 14th
Fulton mid Mulkcy Visit Salem
Principal DusIiicsb Seemed to
Be Calling on Friends.
Frederick W. Mulkey, of Portland,
arived In the city Tuesday, but mys
teriously disappeared and has not
been seen since In the customary
haunts of public men and politicians.
Last night Senator Charles V. Ful
ton arrived on the late train, and
registered with his rival at the Wil
lamette hotel. He too slid out early
to see his trusted friends. To a Cap
ital Journal reporter he admitted
after a tour of eastern and
Southern Oregon that his fences
were In fair order, and that he wel
comed compteltlon from other can
didates, 't Is an open Held, and
the more candidates the merrier.
It I had not conducted myself so
as to warrant the people In giving
jne a second term, If I have not at
tended to their public business In a
way to commend me to their favor
able consideration, I ought not to
be Senator from Oregon and have
no claims upon the ofllce. The peo
ple of Oregon are entitled to the best
and the best man In the party Is
none too good to servo a great" state
like ours. My chances I consider
very good for suceedlng myself,
and after seeing as many of the peo
ple as possible, I shall leave it to
them. There will be no barrel cam
paign on my part. I was chosen the
other time against all kinds of mon
ey influences and used no money my
self to influence a single vote, not
even so much as buying a cigar for
a member of the legislature, and I
have no money to make this cam
paign with In the sense of any more
than having mv personal expenses to
get around and see the people."
Senator Fulton was busy all Tday
seeing his personal friends and met
a great many of them considering
that he slipped Into the city entirely
unannounced. There is a pretty
strong sentiment in favor of not
breaking up the present delegation in
Washington, and It is the belief even
of those opposed to Fulton that he
will be the nominee and can be elect
ed against anyone the democrats put
up. Capital Journal.

FOUNDATION FOR COOS
BUILDING IS STARTED
The concrete foundation for the
Coos Building Is well under way and
a force of men aro busy at the work.
The Myrtle Point gravel, which Is bq
lng used, Is arriving dally and the
street in front of the building is
covered with great quantities of this
nnd other material. Masters Mc
Laln are furnishing crushed rock for

will be 50 x 100 feet, and the work
Is started around the whole building.
HUNTER RETURNS FROM
Dr. E. E. Straw returned from his
hunting trip in the Gould neighbor
hood. He left the remainder of the
party, Messrs. Will Ford, Ivy Con
dron and Mr. Deubell at the hunt
ing grounds, and they returned last
night. Before the doctor left, the

Frank Bacom, a young man of this
city was arrested yesterday on a war
rant charging him with not support
ing his wife and child and he is now
Incarcerated ln7 the county jail, says
the Pendleton Tribune. He prac
tically admitted the charge against
him, to District Attorney Phelps yes
terday and will be arraigned before
County Judge Gllliland this morning,
at which time It Is expected he will
plead guilty and receive his sentence.
This Is the first arrest of this kind
under the new law and as Gllliland
as county judge, has had abundant
opportunity to witness the suffering
and misery caused by the neglect of
criminally shiftless husbands and has
frequently expressed himself very
strongly on the subject of what
should be done to them, it is very
probable that young Bacom will fare
rather badly at his hands this morn
ing. Under the terms of the law he may
be sentenced to servo from 30 days
to one year In the county jail and bo
put to work on the county roads.
During tho time that he Is thus con
fined and made to work the roads,
the county will pay tho wife not to
exceed ?1.50 per day.
A jail terra may not necessarily be
imposed however as it is possible for
a person convicted of non-suport of
his wife to agree to pay a certain
sum weekly and to glvo bonds for tho
raltniul performance of this agree
ment. Failure to comply with it
however, will place him agin under
tno power or tho court, when n jail
sentence can be Imposed.
According to the story tdld the dls
trlct attorney by Mrs. Bacom her
husband has utterly failed to care for
hor or their little boy, a baby of six
months. She said that she, had not
had anything to eat for three days.
Her case seemed such a pitiful one
that the district attorney took imme
diate action and filed the Information
in tho county court. Bacom was
then arrested by Sheriff Taylor.

COOS BAY LAUNDRY
HAS NEW MACHINERY
Stockton, Aug. 15. Realizing that
the situation is most serious, the
Stockton Chamber of Commerce to
day took up tho proposition of hav
ing the destroyed bulkhead at the
Robinson place, near Bellota, . re-i
paired at once. Unless this leyee,
which turns tho water in the Calav
eras river, Is replaced, the freshets
will surely sweep over the country
and through the streets of Stockton
again. Every effort to induce tho
farmers in that vicinity to assist in
paying for the work has failed. At
present there is not a quorum of the
board of supervisors In the county,
one member being on a vacation,
while there Is a vacancy on the
board. Should the matter not be
acted on until the next meeting of
tho supervisors, which will be the
first week of next month, much val
uable time will be lost, and the
chamber has sent a telegram to
Chairman Wright urging him to re
turn and call a special meeting to
consider the bulkhead proposition
nnd have the work started at once.
Tho Chamber will also take up the
proposition of having all oil tanks
Inside the city arranged so that here
after, In case of high water, tho fuel
will not be liberated and mar the
fences, lawns and trees.
