Portland Has It That Coos Bay
Industries Have All Closed
EVERYTHING IS HUMMING
Seymour Hell Writes That Coos Hay
Is the IJcst l'oint on tho
Mr. G. F. Averlll, a Now York man
who arrived In yesterday on tho
Breakwater, says tho talk is current
in Portland that everything In
Marshflcld and North Bend In tho
way of manufactories has shut down,
and that tho talk Is likely to deflect
colonists from this territory. Such
a canard was likely tho revenge of
sonlo discharged mlllhand who
thought to give the country a black
eye or else who talked unconsciously.
The mere fact of tho heavy Indus
tries being under full headway and
many adidtlonal things ready for
immediate launching is sufficient
refutation of the Portland story, and
tho news will reach Portland in such
a way that strangers will not bo de
ceived. A stranger will find Coos
Bay tho liveliest dcac" place ho ever
encountered. Every mill is running,
the Smith improvements arc all un
der way, four concreto and brick
buildings, employing 100 men, aro
are being hurried to completion, half
a hundred homes are in building and
every carpenter on tne uay is rusueu
with greater demands for help In
building, the logging camps aro busy,
and when tho water comes tho great
est cut ever mado In tho county will
como down tho various streams,
property is changing hands overy
day, everybody Is thoroughly busy,
and there Is no sign of lassltudo or
retrenchment and the pinched money
condition has not been felt here. A
letter from Seymour H. Bell, who
has visited Portland and tho Sound
cities since leaving hero, written to
J. S. Coke, says, among other things:
"At present Coos Bay is tho best
point on tho Coast." Mr. Bell was
Interviewed by the Tacoma Ledger,
and the reporter got a column and a
half from him about Coos Bay. Tho
outsiders do not want to toll Bell
that Coos Bay is dead, or they will
havo tioublo on their hands.

In 10 Years. '
Cambridge, Nov. 9. Memory of
previous defeats was forgotten todajf
in tho victory of tho Carlisle Indiana
over Harvard, by a score of 23 to 15.
For versatility of plays tho Indian
team has not been equalled on Har
vard's field since tho new rules went
Into effect. Forward plays, delayed
kicks and cross passes followed eachi
other in rapid succession until tho
Harvard players becamo bewildered
and seemed utterly unable to stop
the march of tho Indians towards
their goal. Tho visitors scored twlco
In tho first half and twlco In tho
second and four times were on bril
liant roughing. Harvard points wero
made on two touchdowns and a goal
from placement by Captain Parker,
Each of the touchdowns was mado
on -fumbles by the Indians dlrectlyj
In front of their own goal lines, so it
was comparatively easy for tho
crimson players to push tho tall

goals from touchdown was missed.
The Indian quarterback kicked threo
goals out of four attempts.

score was, Agricultural College 4

better work at critical times and be
cause of fumbles by Oregon. Tn a
general way it may bo said that tho
teams wero evenly matched, al
though members of tho university;

tho score just about represents tho
relative strength of tho two elevens.
