There was a terrible cyclone in
.Minnesota a few days ago whkm de
stroyed much property in St. Paul
and Minneapolis. There have been
urfous and damaging electric storms
In various parts of the country in
August. The heat has been oppres
sive in nearly all Eastern states dur
ing the summer and many people
lave died from its effects. Last win
ter was the worst the Northwest has
ever known and the suffering from
told, snow, Ice, lack of fuel and ex
posure exceeded anything the states
r Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan
and tho Dakotas have known for
But at Coos Bay there were no
cyclones. There never has been such
a storm and no damage has ever
been done by the wind and the rain
oiii the peninsular where the cities
stand. Electric storms are unknown.
There have been faint rumblings of
thunder as the oldest inhabitant
can remember but never a thunder
storm or a stroke of lightning. The
icmpeiature at Coos Bay is never too
hot. No man or woman ever had
sunstroke on tho Bay or its adjacent
lands. Tho glass goes above S5 de
crees so seldom that few can recall
when it did. Thcie is never a killing
trost or a respectable snowstorm.
ine gla&s never goes down below
thirty-five above zero, except once or
twice in live or ten years and nobody
can remember when losses were
scored oi suffering lesulted, on that
account. Roses bloom all the winter
long. When tho experience of Port
land and cities east in connection
with heat, is considered, Coos Bay
people feel grateful that fortune has
cast .their lot lor them in the best
climate in tho world. Los Angeles
and San Diego people expect to bake.
But the people ot this section do
not. Minnesota, Dakota, Nebraska
ajid Kansas people live in constant
expectation of being blown Into king
dom come. Coos Bay poeplo con
sider that it is a joy to live in tho
ilngdom hero whore such zephers
disturb not. This is a great climate.

The telegraphers strike still con
tinues and tho situation is more in
teresting than distressing after all.
It is true that news does not reach
us as fully and as soon as formerly,
but wo manage to get it one way or
another, sooner or later, and busi
ncsj still goes, on although with a
ttower and perhaps healthier and
moro sensible pace. This lightning
ago of electricity lias its drawbacks
and the rest the telegraphers give us
is refreshing. According to tho Port
land papers there are other features
of the strike which nro far from dis
heartening. So busy is tho whole
country today that if a man is thrown
out of his job, of ono kind, he has
very little dilllculty in finding an
other. Tho telegraph operators are
everywhere known to bo an Intelli
gent lot and it is said that tho
strikers have not been hanging
around tho union headquarters wait
ing anxiously Tor news of tho battle,
hut havo nearly all of then, at least
In Western cities, found other occu
pations. Somo of them declaro that
ilio strike Is a Godsend to them and
ilhat it relioves them from a very
confining work which offers no op
portunities for advancement. Tho
.are thoroforo glad to havo an excuse
o try their fortunes in some other
"lino. But what will become of tho
Western Union if they can't get oper
ators? It is not vory seriously a
concern of tho people what becomes
of tho Western Union. Many people
who do not believe in government
ownership of railioads, liavo no ob
jection to government ownership of
telegraph lines, Possibly operators
would bo bettor satisfied to work in

Tho directors of tho Standard Oil
Company hnvo sent to the Times
thoir rescript prepared for their em
ployoa and stockholders wherein tlioj
sook to justify themselves nnd be
little tho judiciary as represented by
Judge Landis. It is not surprising
that tliis company, which does not
caro a mill for tho opinion of tho
American peoplo or for thoir laws or
institutions, and which ton years ago
was foremost In denouncing .those
who dared to tnko issue with tho
courts, should now chaugo its tono
and denounce tho courts roundly.
Whether it Is Jekyll or Ilido depends
on what tho occasion demands. Tho
nipiilet sent out to tho newspnper
press to Inform them of tho "fuets"
a to the Chicago & Alton railroad
tae. Is nicrel a compilation of edi
torial comments made by tho Pluto
cnir fc Press of the country. It would
oe strange, indeed if tho Stnndnrd
OH Company could not ilnd friends
among the newspapers when its po
Hicy has been to own nnd control
such newspapers everywhere. In
feed, U is very probable that Mr.
ltockol'ullur and his associates will
again seek to "educate tho neoiilo."
They havo attompted that heretofore,
indirectly, nnd tlioy may feel tho
necessity of doing it in tho open.
Tills is the first timo tho Octopus has
condescended to mako a defense bo
foro tho people.
It Is stated, on tho highest author
ity that during tho months of March
and April this year, while tho set
tlors excursion rates wore In effect,
ono railroad company, tho O, R. & N.,
brought 14,000 settlers into Oregon.
It is expected that many moro will
talto advantage of tho same rates
in Septombor nnd October. There
will, no doubt, bo a great rush this
fall. All Indications point to tho
greatost westward movomont that
lias over yet boon oxporienced, nnd
Coos Ray peoplo should seo to It that
hoiuoseokers are not only induced to
