In another column of this even
ing's paper The Times publishes an
interview with Peter Loggio, in which
that enterprising and progressive
business man presents to the world
fow choice boquets plucked from the
blossoms of the manufacturing plants
of North Bend and lormed into flow
ers of speech. There is one discord
ant note in Mr. Loggie's song, or to
preserve the blmile a rag weed in
the buquet. Mr. Loggie is a bit
caustic in his criticism ol the apathy
of the North Bend Chamber of Com
merce. The Times cannot agree
with him in his e-ncluslons
and thinks it only fair to
say so frankly. Mr. Loggie was
one of the first g Titlemen the
writer met on his arrival on Coos Bay
and was impressed with him as a
type of city builder that helps to
make for progress. That estimate
still stands. Energetic, broad
guaged, big brained and brimming
over with energy, Mr. Loggie Is the
type of men who do things. He is a
Iiuman dynamo of energy and an en
cyclopedia of im'orination when it
comes to expounding the greatness
of the resources and the boundless
possibilities of the prospects of Coos
Bay. Wo think we can understand
that sucli a personality, vibrating
with a desire . for achievement and
prompt realization of the promise of
the future greatness of this harbor
becomes impatient ajL times with
what seems slow progress. It is nat
ural that he withes to see things
moving at all tlnu-s with dash and
spirit. This is well. It is also good
that he seek as many avenues as pos
sible for the outlet of energy that
will promote the wellaro of North
Bend and Coos Bay. The Times
thinks, however, that one of the
chief requisites in the development
and progress ol the Coos Bay country
is the harmonizing of all the ele
ments that are laboring ' for a com
mon goal. The Chamber of Com
merce may not bo as full
of ginger as Mr. Loggie thinks
it should, but It is neverthe
less a splendid feature of the
commercial life and work of North
Bend and Coos Bay. If something
more progressive along strictly com
mercial linos is desired it Is excol
lont to havo it, but lot it be ap
proached in a spirit of harmony and
feeling that all are laboring to the

K. Dow Writes llreezy Letter From
The Land of Orange Ulosouis
To His Friends on Coos
San Diego Co., Cal., Dec. C.
Dear old Coos Bay and the inhabi
I saw in last evening's paper that
there was a well defined storm on in
Washington and Oregon. The paper
added "We hope to get some of it."
Now I am not that selilsh. I havo
the generosity born of one who has
spent several years on Coos Bay, or I
might add I know hcu have
enough. That is not saying I will
never want any more. Simply liad
a good turkey dinner and am willing
to wait until I am hungry again.
This sunshine suits me all right.
Why this dear old southern sun of
Southern California don't know any
thing else but shine. It costs the
government quite a sum to make it
quit shining. Uncle Sam has an
army post here. The chief work is
to shoot the sunrise and sunset gun.
The sunset gun seems to work all
right for the sun drops into the ocean
at once. But the sunrise gun, our
southern sun, pays no attention to it.
Perhaps it is because it has quite a
dtart before the boys in blue shoot it,
one would think.
Well if I jvas shot at twice a day I
would quit coming to bo shot every
evening, and come up smiling every
morning and resume business at the
old stand, giving color to the roses,
California poppy and the many flow
ers In field and yard. My home in
Paradise valley looks good to me.
We havo six malls per day. You see
the chance I havo to hear from you.
The postofilce has no sign hanging in
the window "The mail has not ar
rived." Twenty trains (steam cars)
per day. Last Sunday the electric
cars, giving half hour service with
San Diego, commenced running.
That is going some.
There is quite a boom on down
here. Prices are reasonable. Lots
?2u0 to ?300 within one block of
business center. They still dig
clams out of the mud. Some day I
expect they will try to shoot them on
the wing. All same Coos B.iy.
Friends here greet me with "Dow,
you look fresh." Yes, fresh and
green; just in out of the wet. I must
admit my friends hero look dried up.
But when I get dry I know whero to
Saturday morning 9 a. m: Oregon
mist has arrived. Well is that the
best you can do? In half nn hour
our Southern California sun has put
Oregon mist out of business. "Be
hind the clouds the sun's still shin
ing," but it doesn't stay thero long
In this land of sunshlno and flowers.
I wish some of the Coos Bay people
could step in and sit hero in the sun
shine with me and smell the per
fume of orange blossoms as It conies
In the window. By the by, that re
minds me, I promised to send orange
blossoms when the conditions were
right. C. W. Wolcott cornea first on
the list. "Get busy;" there are some
young ladies on the list also. It is
not often I say "Take something,"
hut wish you were hero to havo
lemonade with me. (Lemons fresh
off the tree). Havo takon to drink
since I arrived In Paradise. Wifo
wants me to sign tlio pledge. (Too
late). I have the habit. Can't lot
up now. Say nil you good people
