But for tho timely work of Con
ductor Ned Lawrenco of the train, the
station building would have suffered,
serious damage. Lawrence jumped,
from the train at the switch which
opens off tho main track onto the
spur leading to the coal bunkers and
threw it just as two of the runaway
cars had passed. The two cars which
had passed ran down the track, col
liding with several which were on the
switch, ditching seven or eight of
them. The changing of the switch
threw tho other cars off the track

According to the story of the en
gineer tho logging cars were In front
of the engine and were being pushed
along at a speed of about ten miles
an hour. He endeavored to slack the
speed and the strain broke a coupling
which let tho cars loose.
Men wore at work all day yester
day cleaning up tho wreckage and
from appearances several more days
of hard work will be required to
straighten out the tangle.

clear statement which showed that
tne Southern Pnclflc train, No. 13,
was tho mall train and that it reach
ed Roseburg too late to meet tho out
going Coos Bay stage. He suggested
that it would benelit both his paper
and the business men of Marshfleld
if the mail should bo sent down on
number 1C as then tho C003 Bay,
stage could get through on time.
He also suggested that the secretary
write to tho postmaster at Portland
on behalf of the Chamber asking that
the change bo made. Mr. Finnegan
stated that ho was surprised at tho
inquiries made on the outside In re

twenty porsons in Portland wero

to locate here.

of tho Coos Bay-Roseburg electric
road. He felt, ho Bald, that the peo
ple of Coos Bay had not done what
thnv r.mild do and that they should
bestir themselves. Tho people of
Roseburg had been led to believe
that if Roseburg would subscribe
12G,000 tho same amount would bo
subscribed at the Coos Bay end. Ho
had been at Roseburg recently. Ho
felt rather ashamed to bo obliged to

why Marshfleld and North Bend had
fallen down, when the Rosoburg end
had subscribed $125,000 in three
