LUMBER COMPANY WINS
Pickets Kept Ships From Securing
Seamen Appeal Refused in
San Francisco, Oct. 7. Tho
United States circuit court of appeals
today decided against tho Sailors
Union and the Pacific Coast Marino
Firemen In their appeal against an
injunction of tho circuit court on
application of the Hnmmond Lumb
er company, which claimed it had
been damaged to tho extent of ten
thousand dollars by the unions' in
terference with Its vessels, the union
picket boat crew dissuading crews
from sailing on them. It was also
stated that the unions are insol
.vont and could not pay the damages
if awarded. In appealing, tho unions
stated they were solvent, having a
fund of one hundred and fifty thous
and the appeallant had relief in a
suit for damages that the Injunction
was violative of their rights; that
they had a right to endeavor to im
provo their condition and organize
for that purpose and to communicate
their desires to others for that pur
pose. ' In affirming former tho judge
ment and so making permanent the
injunction, the judges gave It as
their opinion that the "solvency or
insolvency of the appeallant was Im
material ns, are cases of continuing
trespass, and the measure of dam
ages was difficult to ascertain," and
tho injunction was not to restrain
the liberty of tho nppeallants but
to prevent lawlessness.

Captain Pays a Fine.
E. L. C. Farrln was called to North
Bond to prosocuto Capt. Mitcholl,
of tho schooner Arngo on a criminal
charge. Tho man nssaulted was
Harry Mathews, n sailor, whom tho
evidence showed, had gone aboard
tho Arago and trlod to run tho ship.
Capt. Mitchell, so it is said, floored
him with a scantliug and then ho
was n good Bailor for a tlmo.
Mitcholl was fined ftvo dollars and
costs, nnd Matthowa got a Hko (loso
in tho municipal court.
New additions to tho Chamber of
Commerce display are made daily.
Yesterday a hill of corn was brought
in from tho farm of William Bone
brake on Catching Inlet. It was
grown on reclaimed marsh land and
is twelvo foot high, with fodder as
rank as could bo produced in old
Missouri. A samplo of millet grown
on the same land was also sent in.
A water melon and specimen of
quinces, grown by R. Q. Rooke were
also sent in. C. S. Hillborn brought
over aspeclmen of apples grown on
his place across tho bay. The apples
aro a distinct variety produced from
a seedling by Mr. Hillborn and have
not yet been given a name. Mrs.
Tom Hall contributed an oddity In
the way of a chrysanthemum. It
sprung from a package of seed pur
chased for all white, but this speci
men turned out to be a dark red
flower resembling the cactus family
as much as tho chrysanthemum. Mr.
Snyder has established the standing
exhibit with a cluster of ripe black
berries and also brought in a huckle
berry bush that holds a place in the
category of curiosities. Apparently
It bears both red and black huckle
berries, and It 13 only after close
analysis that it is discoTered that
two roots Intertwined and grew to
gether, one of the red variety, the
other of the black. Yesterday Dr.
Culln of Myrtlo Point brought over
a specimen of the Bismnrck apple
grown on his place. It weighs a
pound and a half and Is the same ap
ple that brings tho top market price
when grown In tho Wlllametto val
ley. Mr. Bishop, the expert apple
packer, who Is preparing the exhibit
of twenty-four boxes of apples to bo
sent to Portland, will report progress
week and the apples will bo shipped
not later than next week. It has
been suggested that somo Coos coun
ty evergreens, such as Oregon frape,
fern, cedar or growth of ornamental
nature be sent along to set off tho
display of apples, and the Chamber
of Commerce will bo very thankful
for information as to where choicest
overgreens may be had.
The agitation as to what section of
tho stato produces the (best apples
has already been started in tho Wll
lametto valley and It Is realized that
nothing less than Coos county's very
best apples, arranged In the most at
tractive stylo, should bo placed In
Olds, Wortman & King's show win
dow, whoro both Hood Hirer nnd
Wlllametto valley have displayed
their choicest fruits.
Much of tho time of the secretary
of tho Chamber of Commerce is de
voted now to assisting now arrivals

A TRUE WHALE STORY.
The following article was mailed
to Tho Times by somo old settler too
modest to sign his name, yet It is
fraught with such interest that the
writer may be excused, though it
would be well to know his name,
since tho article Is excelfent, and also
Editor Coos Bay TIme3: In your
Issue of 5th Inst, you reported a
whale being stranded near Ton Mile.
This reminds me of another such in
stance in the spring of I860, at a
time when Indians were plenty in
the country on tho reserve near Em
pire. George Camon at that time had a
store In this place, Julius Pohle, a
cousin of mine, was his bookkeeper
and salesman. To attend to business
George had gono to San Francisco
and to help my cousin I came there
for some flme. A short distance be

Coos Bay Indians. Dally bucks and
squaws would come to tho store to
buy or barter articled. For a num
ber of days a change had come over
our rcdsklnned costumers, an uncom
mon activity prevailed. Canoes
crossed and recrossed the bay until
at last only a few of the oldest per
sons were left to take care of the
teepeos and the few effects not taken
Their doings being shrouded In
somo mystery could not fall to raise
the curiosity of the white people.
The next day a number of us fol
lowed their trial which headed north
ward for some distance. At last we
found them encamped close to the
beach. In the surf lay the carcass of
a full grown whale, a harpoon still
fastened In its side.
No doubt weeks had passed since
tho monster had come ashore, for the
decomposition had much advanced,
filling the air with a most obnoxious

Love, Matrimony and Semrntion
Advice for Girls.
Tom Richardson paid a splendid
tribute to the nowspapers in his ad
dress the other night, says a Eugene
paper. He declared them to be the
greatest factors in tho upbuilding
of a community, and asserted that
it had been proven in Portland and I
elsowhoro that newspapers were tho I
most effective of all advertising
mediums. Thus it Is that the busi
ness man who advertises not only
helps himself, but Is a public bene
factor in that ho also contributes
to tho making of better newspapers,
and they In turn advanco In every
way tho material interests of the
community. The non-advertiser can
never bo a real effective booster, for,
as Mr. Richardson said, the news
paper should be tho rollable and
completo directory of tho business
and professional intorests of tho
community in which It Is published,
it is published.
