COOS BAY TIMES
The time has nirl.-ed when the
d"ftlon of paving will have to be
thoroughly discussed by those who
may be interested in the progress of
Coos Bay cities. The present condi
tion of streets which are regarded
as of principal importance is enough
to make most of us somewhat
ashamed. Only a short time ago it
was considered impracticable to
have a street parade of a certain fra
ternal society in Marshfield be
cause of the condition of Front
street and the home society was hu
miliated for that reason. There are,
It is true, some arguments against
paving, but tho more they are ex
ploited the more distressing tho case
becomes, and the more evident It
is that legislation will have to bo
invoked to get rid of several re
straining provisions of the charters
of tho two cities, which prevent tho
city from expanding or acting as a
decent metropolitan community
should net. But, legislation or no
legislation, tho streets! will have to
be put into shape and tho sooner
thoso having it In clinrge get down
to business, tho more credit will
accruo to them.
In paving tho streets of tho Bay
cities tho usual economic questions
must bo considered, but the question
of greatest Importance Is whether
tho material for good, substantial
work can bo furnished nt home.
Even If It should cost a little more
than tho imported article, It would
pay tho public to patronize homo
resources, homo labor and homo in
dustries. That is the way to make
tho city prosper and to increase the
population and the value of tho
property which must bear the bur
don of tho Btrcot Improvement. Now
it so happens that this section has
tho raw material and equlpmnot to
turnish tho very best kind of pave
ment. This Is n timber country nnd
tho cedar necessary for paving with
creosoted blocks enn be supplied
cheaper than anywhero else. By
using this form of prvemont homo
industries aro patronized, a largo
amount of money is kept at homo
and tho activities of tho community
are increased. More thnn this. It
Is now settled thnt creosoted blocks
laid on a rive Inch Portland ce
ment concreto base, Is equal to
using this form of pavement homo
Is believed by many impartial ex
perts to bo better than asphalt, brick
or othor material. It is tho most
durable, requires tho least attention
and Is smooth and freo from that
lino powdered dust which onuses so
much complaint In tho caso of as
phalt and brick. Besides this, iho
fir and cednr of tho COos Bay dis
trict aro harder and hotter for this
purposo than that bmployed in tho

What misleads many with rofor
enco to tho creosoted block is thut
thoy confuso it with tho old sedur
block pavoment which proved in
sufficient. Tho creosoted block
pavoment is as much superior to tho
codnr block inothod as asphalt Is
superior to cobblo stones. Tho old

is, therefore, fully nble to furnish
the material for the very best and
most durable and satisfactory pave
ment now known and to import ma
terial would be extremely poor busi
ness from any point of view.
The far sighted man of action and
affairs who anticipates conditions
and provides for them before they
aro realized, Is tho great benefactor
of his generation, and while his
plans may bo designed for self-advancement
their merit consists in
the fact that he can not build well
for himself without building for
others. The great Smith mill shows
In its construction and location this
quality which builds on a basis
which Is not In danger of being
thnn anything that comes to mind,
and more especially as to the Marsh
field end of it.
To illustrate: Some two months
ago a man by the name of Gibson
.appeared in Marshfield and proposed
to build a hotel. That made every
man sit up and take notice. In fact
they did more than that. Abo.ut
$20,000 was subscribed to assist In
the enterprise. "The long-felt
want" was about to be supplied,
"the crying need" was about to be.
Another dream :
The "crying need" became a
"howl," "the long-felt want" became
actual misery. The daily paper here
took up the cry. With the only hotel

encroach on that water front and ! now that the hotel will be built, and
extend it into the bay or into the

have made use of the water front for
business burposes, is a matter of
regret. The bay and the Inlet will
both have to be dredged and the
abutting owners should guard the
