A SPLENDID HKSULT.
To nay that the result of last even
ing's Uigh School election, as it was
jioyu nrly called, disproved r.ny
charge pgainst Marshfield of bdng
jion-progres-ive in educational :nrt
ters. Tho voters who were present
and participated were all taxpayers
and weu the people who will uajos
.sarily bear the direct burden of sup
porting the schools. It was highly
gratifying to note that only two
votc3 were registered against the
causo of education, and no doubt the
two voters who made so poor a rec
ord for themselves aro by this time
heartily disgusted with themselves.
But the High School Is now a cer
tainty, and it will be a school which
will be a credit to Marshfield. That
is- one of Marshfleld's good points.
When at last she decides to do a
.good thing she does it well. So the
school will become famous, and no
pains will be spared to equip it thor
oughly and effectively.
It must be appreciated also that
the; people have done well In decid
ing for a new site for a new common
school. Whether it will be located
In South, or West Marshfield is not
To Whom It May Concern:

NATIONAL JUST THE SAME.
Everybody has been after the
Times man today on the question of
whether tho United States has a
national holiday. He has b-en kept
busy pointing out the fact that all
the Times said in eifect was "Hear

Yet on Coos Day the present values
are sustained by great resources and
very remarkable cneap transporta
tion facilities. So far as labor is
concerned there is no city In any of
the states named where it can pro
cure lots or houses cheaper, and In
most of tho states the cost of living
are large tracts close to niills where
men are occupied In large numbers
which can be purchased for from $C5
to $150 per lot. These are twenty-flvo-foqt
lots, but two of them will
cost from $130 to $300 and ample
time is given to pay for them. Of
course the man who labors does not
expect to buy corner lots on busi
ness streets, as the value of those
are subject to investigation by each
purchaser. But if one takes into ac
count the smallness of the peninsu
lar the exceptional inporjance of
the harbor as being 400 miles from
any other of anywhere equal capac
ity the fact that the platted por
tions are all within a few blocks of
the water front that the wholo
water front will bo needed by ship
ping and is In great demand, that
great and substantial industries al
ready insure the permanency of tho
cities that there are great re
sources of timber, coal and dairy,
and food as well as fruit products
close at hand, that the climate is
alone "sufficient to attract thousands
of residents and investors, there
can be no doubt in tho Investor's
mind that he will realize large prof
its on his investment. Neither can
any laborer doubt that if he is a
prudent and judicious man he can
do well by purchasing a lot and own
ing his own home. There is not the
slightest room to doubt that all have
a good chance at present prices on

comfortable for little ones to sit " national holidays the United States
I hab them. Congress makes them by
law for tho District of Columbia and
Jiiga chairs with their
abovo the floor and be unable to
change their positions. It is unfair
to them, also, for there Is no justifi
cation in any theory of discipline in
Iceoping them in such an unnatural
position. The Marshfield schools are
growing. Their standard is high.
They have an excellent corps of
teachers. They have an eminent ed
ucator of exceptional ability and
sk'ill nt their head, and to tho per
sistent and Intelligent activity of
Professor Golden Is due In a very
pronounced extent tho credit of last
evening's very enthusiastic and suc
cessful school meeting.
TALK IT UP.
When J. J. Hill recently called at
tention to the substantiality of
Northwestern Interests and their
growing independence from Wall
street money loaning concerns, he
-wound up his hard-headed, senslblo
remarks by advising his hearers to
"Talk it up." Tho advice is good
also for localities which havo rich
resources or which havo exceptional
advantages for tho upbuilding of
prosperous cities. The Coos Bay
man ha3 considered it ills duty to
"talk up" his section nnd, in fact,
ho. gonorally forgets that it is a duty,
and feels the inspiration of his sur
roundings so deeply that ho "talks
16 up" because it is the prottlest and
easiest subject in tho world to talk
Ono feels nstonished to hear a
discordant noto on Coos Bay, but
tho astonishment is increased many
fold if an ably edited nowspapor,
whoso duty it is to sliapo its policy
eo aa to get all tho peoplo to pull
togothor, suddenly becomos con
scious of a. duty to tako its city by
tho car, so to speak, pull it into tho
outHido world and tell it in tho pres-
tho territories, the states make them
by law on tho same dajs or tho gov
ernors follow the President's lead in
the proclamation of them. If the
question had been asked "Is there a
law enacted by the Congress of the
United States and approved by the
Executive providing for the observ
ance of any one day as a national
holiday in all tho states and terrl-
torles?" tho answer would have to
be that Congress has no authority to
compel any state to celebrate or ob
serve such a day, and has therefore
enacted no such law. But who dares
to say that all Americans and some
who aro not Americans do not cele
brate tho Fourth and Thanksgiving
day as national holidays everywhere.
They are national just the same.
