OInoa miw TUESDAY MEMBER OP ASSOCIATED TUESS. EDITION - VOL II. PRIZES FOR Chamber of Commerce Exhibit Becoming Interesting Windows Full. AWARD PRIZES MONDAY Lecture by Professor Lonis Monday Evening List of Prley. 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.

"BUCKSHOT" HELPS CITY TREASURY 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.

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. 1 IB ASIATICS ERS EN VANCOUVER British Columbia City Scene of Fierce Demonstration Against Orientals JAPANESE CHARGE MOB Many Hurt in Moleo Go eminent At Ottaua Sees Chance for Apology. 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 U tl'tWlV3V IJHItHUIWI . 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.

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. One aero of good timbor land Is worth as much as two acres of good 198.65 61.25 35.00 75.45 24.50 518.25 50.00 $1,219.30 $1,289.80 .,..$1,289.80 $1 ,249.30 bank Aug. 31st 1907. 40.00 SIGNED, ARTHUR McKEOWN, Manager-Captain Season of 1907. farm land "In Oregon in tho year 1S48 at solid unbroken forest extended from the Columbia river to tho California line, a forest of not less than 3,500, 000 acres of the best yellow fir and pine, with alder and maple along the streams. Some time about 1849 some evil genius applied the match that sent millions of dollars worth of this valuable timber up in smoke. If during tho next 50 years the same Inroads are made upon our forests by lumbermen and flres as In the past, but little timber will remain to be protected. "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 sun was almost entirely obscured by smoke from forest flres for about 10 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. "There is great necessity now for the protection of both, old and young standing timber, or in time wo shall have no timber to protect. Settlers In timbered districts, if they find themselves unable to extinguish a fire should notify the foresters at once." SUMNER PEOPLE ARE INTERESTED IN HOTEL Cantaln W. C. Harris was down from Sumner yesterday on business and during tho day dropped In at the Chamber of Commerce heaa quarters. He was pleased to learn, he said that Marshfleld was going to build a hotel such as Is needed and hopes tho matter will not bo long .iniavod. He said tho people of Sumner pre Interested in the matter and are going to ask tho privilege of furnishing tho first feed that is given in the hostlery. And they could do the matter up brown. Sum ner is a very productive part of the county and with the dairy products of numerous variety, as butter, cheese, cream, milk, everything in vegetables, fruit of all descriptions, Captain Harris believes they coum make a creditable showing. They might havo to kill the fatted calf in order to furnish meat, but the peo ple of Sumner when they undertake a matter do not stop short of fulfill ing their plans.

HOSPITAL TO BE BURNED Board of Health Believes Precau tion ary Measures Require Such Action. Washington, Sept. 5. By direc tion of President Roosevelt, the Pub lic Health and Marino Hospital Ser 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 do all that Is possible toward provid ing funds to carry on tho work. Acting promptly on telegraphic instructions from Oyster Bay, Surgeon-General Wyman Issued tho nec essary orders and advised the Mayor of San Francisco that the corps of the service officers ajVeady on duty there would bo augmented and that ad ditional measures would be taken to prevent the spread of the disease. Would Destroy Hospital. San Francisco, Sept. 'B. A confer ence of the Board of Supervisors, the Board of Health and many prominent physicians of the city and state was held tonight to discuss the plague situation. Much discussion, was had on the question of whether or not the j City and County Hospital should bo destroyed.

Tho destruction by fire of the City and County Hospital buildings was contemplated yesterday by the Board of Health, and If arrangements can bo made for housing the 500 Inmates tho plan may be carried out. Presi dent Simon of tho Board, and Dr. Power held a conference with Mayor Taylor regarding tho matter yester day morning, and then sought out F. W. Dohrmann to learn if assist ance could bo obtained from tho Re lief Corporation in the housing of patients. Meantime, plans for the thorough fumigation of the hospital have been perfected and will bo carried out to- day.lf the more drastic course proves to bo impracticable. The hospital for many years has beon in need of de molition, on general sanitary princi ples. Health Ofllcer Watkins has re ported that it is entirely unfit for tho habitation of robust persons, much less invalids, and that it cannot bo mado habitable. The germs of tuber culosis, and probably of many other diseases, aro known to infest all Its nooks and corners, and Its plumbing is in a fearful condition. Tho members of tho Board agree with the Health Officer as to tho thoroughly unsafe character of tho building, from a sanitary point of view, and that this Is a condition which cannot bo cured. The present Infection has been largely caused, it is held, by the swarms of rats In tho building, and tho proposed fumigation, It is admitt ed, would not clear out tho "rat warren"which honeycombs aro. In the ground beneath tho basement. Both its long standing condition and tho present necessity demand that the building be destroyed and this will No. 55. 1IIIH Ml. 1 1 II l.J,JJl'HIM Britt Breaks Arm In the 4tb Round and Quits in the Next. NO MATCH FOR CHAMPION 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 wrist. 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 decision of tho doctors effectlvoly- dlsposes of any claim of a fake. MR.
