Chamber of Commerce Exhibit
Becoming Interesting
Windows Full.
Lecture by Professor Lonis
Monday Evening List of
The fruit exhibit and contest be
ing carried on by the Marshfleld
Chamber of Commerce Is creating a
great deal of Interest, and exhibits
are coming from every direction.
Long ago the window space at the
headquarters was occupied and the
displays are most excellent. The
visitors find enjoyment at viewing
the windows and the contents and arc
thus enabled to see what the farmers
of Coos county can produce without
making themselves believe they
should go to the country and see the
fruit on the trees, that they may not
go away and toll unreliable stories
about the fruit raised In this sec
tion. Thc country folks havo aided
the exhibit In every manner possible,
and those who havo brought material
to swell tho display have done so
more for the sake of their patriotism
for Coos County than for the prizes
offered. And the prizes aggregate a
considerable sum, notwithstanding.
Besides the fruit exhibit there are
vegetables and mineral In abundance,
and there are prizes for vegetables
as well as for the fruit. Tho prizo
winners will bo announced next Mon
day, and will be made under the di
rection of Dr. W. J. Korr, President
of the Oregon Agricultural Colleger
assisted by other members of the
faculty who will be visiting the BayJ
at that time. Prof. Lewis, on Mon
day evening, will lecture to Coos
County fruit growers. The place of
holding the meeting of Monday night
is not yet solected, but It is believed
that more room will be required than
the Chamber headquarters afford.

Mr. Creeson, better known as
Buckshot, who with his dog Skoo
kum shares considerable local fame,
fell heir to a legacy of considerable
proportions Saturday night. It is
seldom Buckshot feels like a million
aire, but he got tho feeling on Sun
day, and during tho effervescence
Officer Carter happened along and
took him In charge. Buckshot put
up cash bail in tho amount of eleven
dollars and failed to see the justice
next morning, saying to himself,
"It were better so." Carter said he
didn't know Buckshot felt bo rich or
he would havo charged him more.

Fierce Demonstration
Against Orientals

Seattle, Sept. 9. A special to the
Times from Vancouver, B. C, says as
a result of disorders on Saturday
and Sunday evening the situation
with regard to Asiatics is increasing
in menace. The Japanese have noti
fied Chief of Police Chamberlain
that police protection is inadeauate
and they will take steps to protect
themselves. The Chinese and Japan
ese employed in the hotels and'
restaurants here have withdrawn
from work. It is said the oriental
leaders havo Instructed them they
mubt not work under $100 penalty.
The Japanese are purchasing fire
arms and the aspect Is threatening.
The steamer Monteagle is due on
Wednesday or Thursday with many
orientals aboard and will be met by
a ' demonstration. It is freely de
clared the orientals will not be al
lowed to land. There Is growing un
easiness In the city and the feeling
Is increasing that in view of the num
ber of Japanese, Chinese and Hindus
in Vancouver, the minister of militia
should take steps to protect them.
Several restaurant keepers met this
morning and resolved to employ
nothing but white labor. Early re
ports of the disorders of Saturday
night were exaggerated. The crowd
amounted to about 10,000, but tho
temper displayed was merely boister
ous. The crowd surged through
streets In the oriental quarter cheer
ing everything white and hooting
and denouncing everything colored.
At Intervals from Indistinguishable
parts in the crowd, brickbats would
hurtle over the heads and crash
through windows. Chief of Police
I'hnmlinrlnln recocnizlnK the in-
Ohamberlain recognizing the in-
adequacy of the force at his disposal,
relled upon diplomacy. Fearful of
arousing tho passions of the mob, he
directed his men to lay aside their
truncheons and exercise moderation.
Later, the order regarding trunch
eons was. revoked, but at no stage did
the police and populace come to
blows. .Personal encounters were
limited to Isolated attacks in the
Imin nncn niinvrorc
The Japanese resisted, armed witty
knives, daggers, clubs and bottles
they charged tho crowd Iwth shouts
of Banzai. Tho crowd carried no
arms and scattered after a large
amount of damage. One white man
was stabbed badly; another was cut
by a stilletto and another had his
head laid open with a broken bottle.
Tho man stabbed is at the hospital.
The report that the disorders were
started by a number of Belllngham
men Is not credited. All arrests are
local. They show tho rioting was
not confined to any particular class.
Bookkeepers, loggers, and laborers
were among those arrested from the
crowd of several thousand which
gathered last evening. Nineteen ar
rests in all wero made. Hearing of
tho charges against the participators
in the police court began today but
uttio nroKress was made. The court
room was crowded and crowds also
linn the streets in the vicinity of the
court. Arming of the orlontals Is
becoming more alarming.
Down town dealers, Including sec
ond hand stores, have been cleared of
firearms. Orlontal labor Is sus
pended in tho city. Restaurants aro
hard put to carry on business.
Lumber mills report oriental labor
ers going to work this morning were
met by pickets of fellow country
men and Induced to return home.
Prominent Japanese residents take
a grafe view of tho situation, de
claring the coming of the steamer
Monteagle on Wednesday In view of
the present state of feeling among
the Japanese and whites is fraught
with serious danger. Business in the
city Is not disturbed.
Ottawa, Sept. 9. Tho general
opinion In tho official circles is that
Canada will havo to pay damages
and apologise to Japan for damages
caused by the Vancouver riots. Re-

Problem of Protecting All Standing
Timber in Oregon Con
fronts People.
Grave necessity for the protection
of all the standing timber in Oregon,
both young and old.confronts the peo
ple of the state, according to David
Ruble, of Waldport, Oregon, a pio
neer of 1848. Mr. Ruble points to
a lesson taught by the early history
of Indiana, and says the Oregon peo
ple should profit by It.' Ho says-
"My father settled on the Miami
Indian reservation in Indiana in
1841. At that time tho entire reser
vation was an unbroken forest with
out room to build a house without
nnftinp down trees. All tho land
that was put under cultivation had
to be cleared of timber. Tho trees
wero cut down, the limbs cut up Into
firewood, and the bodies of the best
walnut and ash were cut into short
lengths, rolled into piles and burned.
"But now in that same locality
cordwood Is selling at $8 a cord, and
lumber at $25 to $40 a thousand.

the Columbia river to tho California

some evil genius applied the match
that sent millions of dollars worth

"Not only is the destruction of
timber by fire a total loss, but tho
smoke is an intolerable nuisance. In
the last days of August, 1S68, the

days. We were preparing a lot of
flowering plants for exhibition, and
the smoke was so thick that it caused
all the blooms to diop off.

Washington, Sept. 5. By direc
tion of President Roosevelt, the Pub

vice has assumed charge of measures
to stamp out tho plague In San Fran
cisco. This step was taken today by
request of Mayor Taylor of San Fran
cisco, who added that the city would

San Francisco, Sept. 'B. A confer

Britt Breaks Arm In the 4tb
Round and Quits in
the Next.
Crontl Saw IJritt Was Outclassed
No Chance For Any Cry
Of Fake.
San Frnnclsco, Sept. 9. A swing
to the body, cleverly blocked, by Joo
Gans, cost Jimmy Britt any chance
he might havo had to win tho light
weight championship of tho world
today, and brought to a close In flvo
rounds of fast lighting tho fight wit
nessed by a crowd of 14,000 people
at Recreation Park. The blow
caught Gans on his elbow. It was
struck In the middlo of tho fourth
round and broke Brltt's wrist, and
thoubh he went on again in the 5th
round ho was helpless In both of
fence and defence, it was not until
this round that he informed his sec
onds of the mi3hap,
"What's the use of going on? I
can't fight; I am helpless," ho said
to Jim Krellng. Captain of Police
Gleason was notified at the ringside
and stopped tho fight. Refereo
Welch gave the decision to Gans.
Three doctors, after an examination,
stated that the injury was a fracture
and dislocation of the lower end of
the ulna, the innermost bone of tho
Whether It was a genuine
fracture or not, Britt showed such
Intense suffering while tho doctors
were manipulating tho wrist that
tears rolled down his cheeks.
"I was utterly holnless." he said.
'I could not oven hold up my left
hand after I broke it. I had no
'guard for Gans' ett and no punch
ar-ici"" num..
The flcht. while It lasted, was a
slugging match, but it was perfectly
evident to every trained observer that
Britt had no chance to win from tho
negro. For tho first time in his life
he was outmatched. Brltt's lack of
coolness was partly resnonslblo for
I the miserable ending of tho fight.
From tho first tap of tho gong ho
had by far the advantage. In tho
first round, Britt staggered Gans to
the ropes with a loft swing on tho
neck that had lots of forco In It. In
tho same round ho also used hla left
and right successfully to tho body
and face. Britt took in punlohmont
a straight left on the nose. That
slowed him down.
The second round developed a mlx
up at tho ropes, In which both men
exchanged vicious rights and lefts;
Gans taking the advantage. In the
third round Gans followed his tactics
of crowding Britt into a corner and
the Callfornian had has hands and
feet busy working his way out. Tho
round was even. Gans drew first
blood in tho fourth with a lightning
like straight left that brought tho
scarlet In a stream, trickling from
tho corner of Brltt's mouth. It was
right after this that BrIU throw all
his strength into a left swing that
proved his merciful ending. Tho
